They Said What??? Jennifer Lawrence, Sarah Palin, & Mark Wahlberg

RANJIT SINHA

(director of the Central Bureau of Investigation in India talking about whether sports betting should be legal):  “Do we have the enforcement?  It is very easy to say that if you can’t enforce it, it’s like saying if you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it.”

MOSHE ABUTBUL

(mayor of Beit Shemesh, Israel, just west of Jerusalem speaking about gay people in his city):  “We have no such things. … Thank God this city is holy and pure.”

ACTOR MARK WAHLBERG

(ranting at the premiere of his new movie, “Lone Survivor”):  “For actors to sit there and talk about, ‘Oh I went to SEAL training’? I don’t give a f*ck what you did. You don’t do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as being in the military? How f*cking dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.”

ABBA SINGER AGNETHA FALTSKOG

(about the 40-year anniversary in 2014 of the band winning the Eurovision Song Contest):  “There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. But I can’t say at this point what will come of them.”
OSCAR WINNING ACTRESS JENNIFER LAWRENCE
(on wearing a wetsuit for scenes in “The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire”):  I was surprised at how little camel toe problem there was.  I was expecting a lot more camel toe problems … There really wasn’t any.”
ACTOR JOSH HUTCHERSON
(on wearing a wetsuit for scenes in “The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire”):  “And once we found out you can actually pee through them, like just go into the ocean and take care of your business, it was easier.”
FORMER CHAIRMAN OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE ALAN GREENSPAN
(on how bad it is in Washington D.C.)  “I’ve never seen it like this.  Clearly the problem is within the Republican Party.  If you make every issue uncompromisable, you cannot have laws.”
FORMER REPUBLICAN VICE PRESIDENT WANNABE SARAH PALIN
“Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China.  When that money comes due – and this isn’t racist, but it’ll be like slavery when that note is due.”
SPRINGFIELD (IL) BISHOP THOMAS JOHN PAPROCKI
(planning an “exorcism” next Wednesday when Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signs marriage equality into law):  “It is scandalous that so many Catholic politicians are responsible for enabling the passage of this legislation and even twisting the words of the pope to rationalize their actions despite the clear teaching of the church.”

They Said What??? President Obama, Pink, & Billie Jean King

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

(talking about the anti-gay laws Russia recently adopted):  “I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays, or lesbians, or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.”

AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION’S BRYAN FISHER

(about Russia’s anti-gay laws):  “Isn’t this wonderful what Russia is doing? Let’s celebrate diversity and let’s support this tradition in the nation of Russia.”

SINGER PINK

(tweeting after negative Twitter comments attacking her for performing with a rainbow flag in Melbourne, Australia):  “Fun fact: when you twitter me and say ‘you’re a lesbian’ it really doesn’t bother me at all,” P!nk tweeted. “It’s a compliment. Most of my fav ppl are, so…I’m sure all of you hate filled humans can come up with something a little worse than that?!? Come on – be creative. You have 140 characters!”

ACTOR & FORMER POP STAR MARK WAHLBERG

(to troubled pop star Justin Bieber):  “Justin, are you listening? Don’t be so naughty.  Be a nice boy, pull your trousers up, make your mom proud and stop smoking weed, you little bastard.”

TENNIS LEGEND & CHAMP BILLIE JEAN KING

“It’s very, very difficult to come out when you’re still actively participating in a sport. It’s starting to get better, and it depends on the sport, too. In tennis we’ve been pretty lucky, but we still don’t have a gay guy coming out.”

MORE KING

(who was outed in 1981 when the media found out about the “galimony” suit filed by her former girlfriend Marilyn Barnett):  “They seem to think that [for] women, it’s been easier.  It was a long, arduous, very difficult process for me.”

FORMER TALK SHOW HOST SALLY JESSY RAPHAEL

“I wasn’t smart like Oprah. I didn’t at the very beginning tell them I wanted to own [the talk show]. That’s my stupidity and it’s stupid because I had to do what they called me in and told me to do.”

“DEXTER” STAR MICHAEL C. HALL

(about the series finale coming up in September, after eight seasons):  “I think the ‘Dexter’ finale will probably land somewhere in between. There will definitely be some grey areas — the show has always operated in that way. I don’t think it will be neat and tidy and wrapped up in a bow, but at the same time, there are some pretty decisive and bold storytelling choices that have been made, and hopefully, [they] will give people a dynamic experience. Whether all questions will be answered, I don’t know if this is a show that ever intended to do that.”
