Well, everyone lies, but these celebrities clearly crossed a line, and they paid the price for it, from lying about their personal weights and losing their virginity to staging anti-gay violence and interfering with the World Trade Center tragedy. Find out who will win the Oscar for the largest falsehoods by visiting the most promising nominees in the biggest liar category. Join me in catching these celebrities red-handed. Our first nominee is Jussie Smollett, who claimed to be the victim of a heinous crime. Get your guests and sympathy out of the way because this guy actually paid two men to assault him. Prepare to learn the truth. With the use of this tale, Smollett was attempting to increase his compensation. To say the least, Smollett, who plays the openly gay character Jamal Lyon on Empire, has faced a lot of backlash. Although he was arrested and released on $100,000 bail, he continues to insist It’s clear that this possible publicity stunt may have put the Empire actor out of work for good. Although Foxx had not reacted to frequent requests, the five Smollett scenes and his major musical number were deleted from Empire after Smollett was accused with a crime for reportedly filing a false police complaint, according to the report. including whether Smollett will continue to have a career in Hollywood after the scandal. If it turns out that smaller staged the events, it is very likely that he will at the very least not be able to work in Hollywood. The league actor Steve Rannazzisi lied about being in the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks, which is why the comedian has claimed for over a decade that on that fateful day in 2001, he was working for Merrill Lynch on the 54th floor of the South Tower and that from his office, he felt the first plane collide with the North Tower. I was not at the Trade Center on that day, and I don’t know why I said this. It was inexcusable, and I am truly sorry. As he says, this is a pretty inexcusable lie. It’s really messed up, but at the very least he seems to understand how messed up it was. It was profoundly disrespectful to those who died and those who lost loved ones. The foolishness and remorse I’ve felt for years haven’t gone away; it was my first experience with having a public character, and I made a terrible mistake. All I seek is forgiveness, however I would add that at least I came clean about it when it comes to honesty, and better late than never, and now the girl who messed with our hearts. Britney Spears is a pop star from the United States. Britney had betrayed herself as the wholesome girl next door who was waiting until marriage to lose her virginity back then Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake or the ultimate celebrity couple while they were together Spears still claimed that she was waiting until they were married to have sex after they had already been broken up the truth came out in 2002 during an interview with Timberlake an interview with Timberlake an interview with Timberlake an interview with Timberlake an interview with Timberlake an interview with Timberlake an interview with Timberlake an interview with Timber Star Jones has struggled with her weight for most of her life, pushing away family, friends, and fans. She later revealed that she was feeling awful about every pound she had gained because she was always in the public eye. Jones had always shown her fans that she was comfortable with her weights, but as she gained weight, her attitude changed. In 2003, when she reached her highest weight of 307 pounds, the fans erupted in laughter. Jones was afraid of disappointing her fans if she revealed how she lost weight; those who cared about her wanted her to admit that she’d sought medical help for her weight problems, but she couldn’t; instead, she said it was portion control and Pilates because she felt ashamed of her appearance. Jones’s image had become unsettling to the public since she claimed she’d lost weight. I didn’t have the nerve to tell y’all I ain’t happy no more, so that was a scare. If Jones had been honest from the beginning, things would have been different, and the crowd would have liked her. Let’s move on. Martha Stewart has been such an important part of well-to-do homes and kitchens for decades that it seems so out of character for her to do something that would result in her being arrested and jailed. However, Stewart was involved in an insider trading scandal in 2001, which resulted in her being sentenced to five months in prison. Martha Stewart has spoken out about the harrowing experience, saying that “nothing good came of it” and that “no one should have to go through that kind of indignity really except for murderers and a few other categories.” She went on to say that “it’s a very very awful thing” and that “I’m sure that this case is an example where if you do the crime, you have to pay the time anyway.” Following her release from prison, Stewart resumed ownership of a successful multimedia company. Since then, she has published more cookbooks and is currently starring in an odd couple culinary show on VH1 with rapper buddy Snoop Dogg. Countless celebrities, like Kate Moss and Lindsay Lohan, have been caught lying about drug use, but Paris Hilton is the queen of getting caught. Following a spell in jail, Paris Hilton appeared on Larry King Live and denied ever using narcotics. Have you ever been addicted to drugs? No, you’ve never been addicted to drugs. However, long after photos of the reality star smoking weed surfaced online, Hilton was arrested for cocaine possession a year after the interview with Larry King. When she appeared in court, Harris reverted to her deceitful ways, telling the judge that the purse where the cocaine was discovered was not hers.
