This list of celebs caught lying has everyone from politicians to pop stars, and some of them may surprise you. For instance, did you know that Beyonce has been lying to you for years? Or that BritBrit wasn't actually a virgin for as long as we thought? In some cases, the truth about these celebrity liars got out due to some intrepid reporting by the media, and in others, the celebrities' lies were exposed by bitter exes. In all of these cases, however, these celebrities who lied had us going "WTF."
Wanna know who the biggest celebrity liar is? It might not be the first name that comes to mind. After all, even the refreshingly honest Whoopi Goldberg made it onto this list (but not for the reason you might think). There are also exactly two of the Spice Girls on this list, although who knows how many white lies the other three have dropped in their lifetimes. The only thing we can tell you with exact certainty is that this list is full of lying liars and egregiously dishonest famous people.
The League star Steve Rannazzisi made the worst decision ever when he first lied about narrowly escaping the 9/11 attacks. After years of keeping up the charade, he was finally found out.
In interviews, Rannazzisi often attributed his decision to follow his comedy dreams to the terrifying events of that day. In 2009, he said that he had been working for Merrill Lynch on the 54th floor the south tower when the first plane hit: “I was there and then the first tower got hit and we were like jostled all over the place.”
But in 2015, evidenced surfaced that proved his story to be bogus. In fact, there was no record of Rannazzisi ever working at the World Trade Center. On September 11, 2001, he was actually in Midtown. In a statement, Rannazzisi was forced to admit his lie, saying “I was not at the Trade Center on that day. I don’t know why I said this. This was inexcusable. I am truly, truly sorry.”

Rebel Wilson was outed for lying about her real name and age. The Pitch Perfect actress had previously said that she was 29 years old and that her real name was Rebel. But thanks to an Australian tabloid, the world found out that she was actually a 35-year-old named Melanie Elizabeth Bounds.
A year before the revelation, Wilson had told the tabloid that her real name was Rebel and that Melanie and Elizabeth were middle names she used in school to avoid getting teased. The tabloid uncovered official Australian documents that not only showed that to be untrue, but also proved she was born on March 2, 1980, a full six years earlier than she claimed.
