Celeb liars' lame cover-ups

entertainment Updated: Sep 08, 2010 20:36 IST

Wanna lie? Come up with better excuses than these celebrities, who lied through their noses and were surprised when the authorities didn't believe them!

Well, we must start with hotelier Paris Hilton, who really 'believed' that the cocaine in her (er, friend's) purse was chewing gum. Incidentally, a while back the socialite had tweeted pictures of the very same purse, excitedly asking everyone to check her new bag out. Wow, talk of alibis!

Speaking of controversies, can singer-actress Lindsay Lohan be far behind? In 2007, cops pulled over the star and found cocaine in her jeans pocket. She said she hadn't been doing drugs and the pants weren't even hers. She gave her uncle's death as the reason for skipping an alcohol counseling session, though the said lawyer admitted she hadn't gone to the funeral, reported PopEater. Seems like drug and drink addiction aren't the only things this compulsive liar needs to go to rehab for!

Lindsay LohanPop diva Britney Spears was spotted driving her car with her son Sean Preston perched on her lap. When asked why the baby wasn't strapped into a car seat where he belonged, and here's what she said "I did it with my dad. I'd sit on his lap and I drive. We're country." What love for the country!

Good Samaritan Eddie Murphy extended his generosity to a hooker. The comedian has photos of him with a street girl in his car while he was married. His explanation to his wife that the hooker (a transsexual) had been crying and his 'heart went out to her' and so, he emptied out his wallet. And what's more, that wasn't the first hooker, he had 'helped' (earn her living).

Winona Ryder, when she was caught shoplifting in 2001, denied that she was a thief and then when nobody bought that logic, here's what she told the court, "I'm sorry for what I did… my director directed me to shoplift for a role I was preparing." One must commend the dedication to her role! Which role? That's still a mystery.

While these celebrities try and get out of their soups, we wonder if their pants are on fire.
