10 Weirdest Celebrity Conspiracy Theories You Won’t Believe –

 

The internet loves a good conspiracy theory, and even the least gullible people in the world love reading about how Justin Bieber is a shapeshifting lizard and that Avril Lavigne died 15 years ago.

If you believe such things, conspiracies about celebrities point to hidden order behind the scenes that could help explain why you’re not rich and famous yourself. It’s because the Illuminati doesn’t want you to be.

Meanwhile, if you’re the type of rational person that thinks celebrities are simply regular human beings, it’s hilarious to read some of the things being spread in the darker corners of the web.

Sure, we’ve all heard that Elvis is still alive and Tom Cruise is some type of wizard, but it’s the more insane conspiracy theories that you’ll lose hours of your day reading into. These are the ramblings of deranged people and, just maybe, the well-considered thoughts of adults who have done their research. But mostly the ramblings of deranged people.

Still, these unbelievable celebrity conspiracy theories are just about the most entertaining things on the internet. And if you think that nothing can convince you Jennifer Aniston was secretly behind the Transformers movies, just you wait!

10. Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson, And Jared Leto Were Possessed By The Joker

Warner Bros.

After the tragic loss of a young actor, in this case 28 year old Heath Ledger, it makes sense for fans to try to find a reason for a senseless death. When that reason is the actor becoming possessed by the character of the Joker, sense kind of flies out the window. But then again…

This conspiracy theory states that not only did Heath Ledger die because of how deep he went into the Joker’s mind, but that the Joker has actually possessed every actor who played him in feature films. It’s known as something of a curse that Ledger, Jack Nicholson, and Jared Leto have all succumbed to, and it sounds ridiculous until you look further into it. As it turns out, even the actors themselves may believe this one’s true.

When Ledger played the role he was known to have suffered a deep psychological break that caused him to only sleep two hours a night. He said that the character got inside his mind and wouldn’t let go, a fact that Nicholson said he warned Ledger about before he took the role, citing his own troubles with the character as proof.

Add to that Leto’s noted struggles with the clown prince of crime, which included tormenting his cast-mates and sending dead animals to people, and it makes sense that he described playing the Joker as “giving birth out of my prick hole.”

So, while this conspiracy isn’t exactly confirmed, it does sound a lot more believable than most.

9. Beyonce Faked Her Pregnancy

Youtube

The whole world loves Beyonce, so of course when Beyonce gave birth to her child Blue Ivy in 2012 the whole world started to love Blue Ivy as well. But what if we told you that Beyonce was never pregnant and Blue Ivy isn’t her child? And there’s a photo to prove it!

According to conspiracy theorists, Beyonce and Jay Z were never able to get pregnant and as a result they hired a surrogate to bring Blue Ivy into the world. Now, you may be wondering why Beyonce couldn’t just admit that she was having fertility troubles. That’s obvious… It’s because she was embarrassed, of course.

So she did the only logical thing and strapped an inflatable baby bump to her stomach for nine months, pretended to give birth, and then named this fake child Blue Ivy. It explains why the photo shows Beyonce’s pregnant belly deflating, it explains why no report came out of the hospital when the baby was born, and it explains why one woman came forward and claimed maternity of the child.

The only problem is that the same woman also claimed maternity of North West, Michael Jackson’s kids, and Prince George. Also, her deflating stomach was just the way the fabric of her dress folded when she sat. And no one saw the baby being born because celebrities can pay to keep things private, which is exactly what Beyonce and Jay Z did.

8. Marisa Tomei Never Won An Oscar

Oscars

Marisa Tomei, soon to be seen as Aunt May in Spider-Man: Homecoming, is an Oscar-winning actress thanks to her role in 1992’s My Cousin Vinny. The problem is that My Cousin Vinny is a slapstick comedy and Tomei was nothing but a TV star at a time when TV stars and movie stars didn’t mix. So the fact that she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 1993 despite being up against “serious actresses” that were projected to win points to one thing; conspiracy!

As the story goes, there’s no way Tomei should have won the Oscar because she wasn’t even meant to be nominated. But when 74 year old Jack Palance presented the award and read the card with the winner on it, he couldn’t see the actual name and announced Tomei’s instead. Because, you know, old people can’t see and they say crazy things all the time. Since the Academy didn’t want to be publicly embarrassed by the mistake, they let it slide and hid the truth immediately after.

This conspiracy followed Tomei around for over two decades until finally, at the 2017 Oscars, the world was shocked when La La Land won Best Picture – and then didn’t. This proved once and for all that, even though it may take a shamefully long amount of time, if the wrong winner is named someone will (awkwardly) fix the mistake live for the whole world to see. And since Tomei having her Oscar taken away on-stage never went viral, it seems that this conspiracy isn’t true.

7. Katy Perry Is JonBenet Ramsey

Capitol

When it comes to conspiracy theories, things like facts and dates and hard information don’t necessarily need to add up. The only thing that matters is a catchy hook and a picture that can go viral. So that’s why we can say, with the utmost confidence, Katy Perry is actually murdered child-beauty pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey!

Okay, so we can’t say that, but apparently a whole lot of other people can and did, despite the conspiracy being grotesquely insensitive to the family of the murdered JonBenet. But since the internet doesn’t care about sensitivity, those who believe this conspiracy point to the fact that Katy Perry looks exactly like JonBenet would have had she not been murdered.

What’s more; Perry’s parents look just like JonBenet’s parents. Forget about the fact that Perry was born 6 years before Ramsey, because the only proof a viral YouTube video needed to confirm this conspiracy was that Perry’s parents and Ramsey’s parents had similar eyebrows. Aha!

According to the conspiracy, Perry was kept hidden away after being “murdered” as JonBenet and was only let back into the public eye after I Kissed A Girl was released in 2008. Why go through all the trouble? Well, it doesn’t really make sense, but those who believe the conspiracy claim it has something to do with sacrificing yourself for fame, or something equally insane.

6. Richard Gere Had A Gerbil Removed From His Rectum

Samuel Goldwyn Films

Everyone knows that Hollywood actors are insane, sex-crazed monsters, so it wouldn’t be that unreasonable to think that an A-lister had stuck a gerbil in his no-no place at one time or another. And that’s exactly what did happen… According to those who believe this conspiracy and have been spreading it around the world since long before the internet existed. So if it survived just by word of mouth after all these years it must be true, right?

As the story goes, actor Richard Gere was rushed to the hospital one night after getting a gerbil stuck in his anus. It was there that he got X-rays and had doctors forcibly remove the gerbil from his rectum, because even though he was the one who put it in he apparently didn’t want it to stay scurrying around up there.

From then on the conspiracy spread to the point where everyone in Hollywood claimed to know someone who had copies of the X-ray, and as a result Gere stopped giving interviews for a long time.

It was only a few years ago that Gere returned to the press and mentioned the conspiracy, saying that “Lots of crazy things came up about me at first, especially from the tabloids. There is an infamous ‘Gere stuck a hamster up his bum’ urban myth.”

Wait a second… Now it’s a hamster? Something doesn’t add up here. Get your story straight, Gere!

5. Lindsay Lohan Has A Dead Twin

Disney

Some people are incapable of accepting that their favorite film is merely pretend. Case in point; those who believe that the 1998 Disney film Parent Trap, starring Lindsay Lohan as two long-lost twins, actually starred a set of real twins. Those twins were Lindsay, of course, and her sister Kelsey. But what happened to Kelsey? Well, she died suspiciously, of course.

Those who believe this conspiracy theory say that when Parent Trap was finished filming Kelsey died in a mysterious car crash. Not wanting to promote a family film starring a dead girl, Disney hid the tragedy from the public by saying that it was Lindsay who played both parts.

Proof for the conspiracy, according to supporters of it, comes from the fact that in her later years Lindsay became a noted drug addict and lost her mind, all of which was due to the trauma of having a dead twin sister. Also, the 90s was a stupid time without Facebook, so clearly the technology to make Lindsay Lohan twins didn’t exist in Hollywood.

If that wasn’t a crazy enough theory, many variations on this conspiracy say that Kelsey’s death wasn’t an accident, but rather an intentional murder by Disney because Lindsay’s performance was better. We know that Disney has some dark secrets in its past, but killing off a child actress because of a weak performance seems pretty dark, even for them.

4. Jennifer Lawrence Isn’t Clumsy And Relatable

Oscars

Jennifer Lawrence is everyone’s Oscar-winning BFF, and if you ask anyone why they love her so much they’ll say the same thing; “she’s just so human.” Whether it’s talking about how much she loves eating bread in interviews, making fun of herself in public, or falling down at various red carpet events, J-Law is the most relatable celebrity of our time. But that’s only if you believe the lies she’s been spreading. Jennifer Lawrence’s whole clumsy persona is fake!

Conspiracy theorists have perhaps latched onto this one because no one believes that there could be such an A-lister as Jennifer Lawrence. Most stars are either hated for being too fake – looking at you Anne Hathaway – or too crazy – cough, Tom Cruise, cough – so to have someone like Lawrence be just like us is too much to bear.

Of course, that must mean it’s all for show. Hell, even Jared Leto (himself part of this list at #10) is a fan of this conspiracy, saying “You know, I’m starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act,”

After falling at the Oscars in 2013, Lawrence gracefully laughed at herself and was welcomed into the hearts of the world. Then she fell again in 2014, then she kept doing things like falling and laughing and making fun of herself and, okay, we understand this conspiracy now. J-Law may have beat the system and figured out a way to stay loveable forever – just keep being clumsy.

3. J.K. Rowling Doesn’t Exist

WikiCommons

Fans around the world were pissed when they found out that the mastermind of Iron Man 3, Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin, was actually just a British actor that was a cover for the real Mandarin. Geeks and nerds everywhere wondered why such a thing would ever happen and if any of it was worth going to all that trouble for. Well, those same people should ask J.K. Rowling that same question; if only she actually existed.

Yes, as it turns out, J.K. Rowling didn’t write Harry Potter because J.K. Rowling isn’t a real person. Sure, there’s that woman that always tweets about things and says she’s Rowling, but she’s simply an actor hired by the shady media conglomerate that actually conceived of Harry Potter.

The rags to riches story, the tale of Rowling overcoming suicidal thoughts only to go on to inspire a generation of children, they’re all fake. The whole J.K. Rowling “character” was created to sell books that were written by advertisers and executives that knew exactly how to write one of the world’s most valuable franchises.

It makes us wonder; if these people know how to strike gold then why aren’t they famous instead of some fake British actress? Or maybe she’s not even British? Maybe she’s the Mandarin? It seems that we’ll never know the truth. (Spoiler alert: yes we will, J.K. Rowling is real.)

2. Nicolas Cage Is A Vampire

There’s never been an actor in the history of cinema like Nicolas Cage. Never has someone put so much emphasis on all the wrong words in a sentence. Never has someone who won an Oscar also starred in so many horrible movies about witch hunting. Never has anyone’s life been so fascinating, so difficult to explain; unless the explanation for all of the above is that Nicolas Cage is an immortal vampire.

You could sit and list reasons why Cage may or may not be a vampire all day, but the fact is that a photo of a man taken in 1870 bears a shocking resemblance to Nicolas Cage. The only reasonable explanation for this? Cage is undead and reinvents himself in various positions of power every century or so. And if that sounds too insane to be true, then how can you explain Cage himself gracing the conspiracy with a response?

In an interview with David Letterman in 2012, Cage, when shown the photo of his 1870s doppelganger, simply said “you can’t take pictures of vampires.” Pressed further regarding the uncanny resemblance, Cage offered this defense: “Now look, I don’t drink blood and the last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection.”

For someone who claims to not be a vampire Nicolas Cage sure knows a lot about vampires. File this one in the “entirely possible” category.

1. Jennifer Aniston And Vin Diesel Stole Hollywood Movies And Released Them 10 Years Later

Cinelou / Universal

Hollywood is hiding the biggest conspiracy of all time and it relates to Jennifer Aniston and Vin Diesel pulling the strings on our pop-culture obsessions. And we don’t mean that Aniston and Diesel are secretly working on a Rachel and Groot crossover series, although that would be amazing.

No, the truth is – according to conspiracy theorists – Aniston and Diesel are perpetrators of an evil scheme to steal Hollywood’s movies from us and only release them when they see fit.

Apparently it all started with the fact that Megan Fox isn’t one actress, but is instead 23 different ones at once. How does this relate, you ask? Well, it doesn’t, but it’s “proof” given for the legitimacy of the man who started this conspiracy in an email to the Hollywood Reporter.

He claimed that after he broke up with Jennifer Aniston she got jealous and robbed various movie studios in order to obtain the only existing copies of Iron Man, Avatar, all the Transformers films, and many more Hollywood blockbusters. Where things get really weird is that this robbery happened way back in the late 90s, back when all of these films were supposedly completed.

So Aniston, being in possession of massive movie hits, does the only logical thing and teams up with Vin Diesel to suppress the films until they choose to release them over a decade later. At that point… Yeah, we don’t know. Supposedly Aniston gets her revenge, somehow, and everyone lives happily ever after?

This is why you should never believe conspiracy theories. It’s a slippery slope, and if you believe one, you have to believe them all.
