Celebrities Who Have Profound Gaps In Basic Knowledge

To put it politely, celebrities are better known for being good looking than for being super smart. Thanks to social media, their more questionable opinions - and shaky grasp on scientific facts - are more accessible now than ever. It's difficult to go too many days without hearing about some eyebrow-raising thing someone famous said. 

But let's be fair: the lives of famous people are so vastly different from ours, so it's understandable that their points of reference may be equally out of touch. When Gwyneth Paltrow said she'd rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can, we have to remember that, in her beautiful fantasy world, cheese and cans are never even in the same sentence. 

We hope you enjoy this list of quirky celebrities and famous folks whose common sense has lapsed a time or two.
