Celebrities are just like us... other than the sex scandals, Illuminati connections, extravagant spending habits, faked deaths, and abandoned porn careers.
These often-suspect rumors, built up into tall tales and conspiracy theories by tabloids, should be easy to ignore. If only. True or not, we can't look away from the outrageous, the scandalous, and the absurd. Putting them in any kind of order is itself something of an absurd endeavor, but that's exactly what we're going to do. Celebrity rumors are a kind of mirror, reflecting which behaviors pop society deems unacceptable, which personalities are most deserving of scorn, and the tenuous balance between celebrity culture and media.
To rank the 100 craziest rumors of all time, we considered the perfect balance of spectacle and plausibility. It's a complex, totally subjective calculus that also takes into account just how captivatingly fun each rumor is. So while most of these aren't true, well, you never know.
