List RulesVote up the biggest slips of the tongue

Celebrities spend a lot of time talking to the press, doing interviews, and just standing in front of microphones saying things. So it’s honestly crazy that we aren’t knee deep celebrity Freudian slips (i.e. when you accidentally say something that you that you secretly really mean). The celebrities who said dumb things on this list range from professional fighters to talk show hosts. There's even one from a US president. It just goes to show that no matter how well-educated or well-coached a star might be, they can’t stop themselves from slipping up and saying something dumb. Call your PR person and check out this list of the greatest celebrity Freudian slips ever.

Celebrity slips of the tongue aren’t unusual. Stars of the stage, screen, and political world tend to say stupid things on camera, but it’s rare that they make such odd psychological statements as the celebs on this list. In each story you’ll read, stars embarrass themselves by doing everything from saying that they had sex with a Republican president to referencing their ex-husband instead of their current one.

These celebrity gaffes will make you cringe so hard that you laugh. Just be glad that you didn’t make any of the Freudian slips on this list. Vote up the biggest celebrity slips of the tongue, and tell us all about that weird dream you had and how it corresponds to how much you love your mother.

    What They Said: When introducing Amanda Seyfried on the Today Show, Willie Geist referred to her as "titsy."

    What They Meant to Say: He says he meant to say that she played a "ditzy character" in Mean Girls. But still, yikes. 

    Aftermath: For the rest of the interview no one would let the slip go. The best part about this is how Al Roker obviously can't make the joke about Willie doing the weather that he so badly wants to make.

    What They Said: At the Elle Magazine party to honor Octavia Spencer, Allison Janney gave a speech and for some reason she began it with, "The first time I entered her." 

    What They Meant to Say: The star of The West Wing meant to say "The first time I entered her orbit," but for some reason she gave a full stop after "her." 

    Aftermath: Emma Stone made fun of Janney and everybody had a good laugh. Honestly, everyone seemed kind of buzzed so it was no big deal.
