Today we highlight the many celebs keeping them company.
I went to university for two years, Sir Alan
Apprentice winner Lee McQueen got caught lying at the interview stage of the BBC show.
McQueen, who landed a £100,000 job with Sir Alan Sugar in 2008, said on his CV he did two years at university when he completed only four months.
The recruitment sales manager said: “I wasn’t lying about my CV – I’d say it was misconstrued information.“
I got a first class degree, Sir Alex
Alison Ryan was fired before her first day as a £125,000 media manager at Manchester United.
Ryan, who was interviewed by Sir Alex Ferguson, had lied about getting a first-class degree and had already been banned from practising as a lawyer.
I speak German
Breaking Bad’s Laura Fraser admitted she fibbed about being able to speak German to the show’s US producers.
The Scot, who played Lydia, said: “I was like, ‘Absolutely, I speak some German’. I’ve done it in school, like I learned ‘Ich heisse Laura’.
"But it took me days to learn a paragraph.“
I can do martial arts
Acrtress Joanna fibbed she could sing and was handy at martial arts to land a part in panto Aladdin in 2004.
At the audition she had to sing alongside Hobbit actor Sir Ian McKellen and was later told she was “rubbish“.
The Gavin & Stacey star admitted she “sang like a strangled cat“ but revealed she had lied before.
She said: “I lie in every audition I do.“
I went to Rada. And Oxford
Long before the Twilight movies, Robert Pattinson, 27, told a few fibs to get work.
He said: “I’d been unemployed for ages and when I came to Los Angeles all the casting directors would ask what I’d been doing for the past few years.
“I’d say, ‘Oh, I was at Rada’. If you’ve got an English accent you can get away with it.
"I’d say I went to Oxford, too. I did it for years.“
3 A levels and an Oxford degree
It may seem a blip when compared with the author’s perjury conviction in 2001, but Lord Archer claimed on his CV he had English, history and geography A-levels plus an Oxford degree.
In fact, the ex-Tory MP had a Diploma of Education from the Oxford Department for Education.
I'm 18 (only four years out...)
Hollywood stars aren’t exactly shy when it comes to fibbing about their ages, but Mila Kunis admitted on US TV she lied to get her part in That ’70s Show, saying she was 18 when in fact she was only 14.
She said: “Legally I was 14, but I told them I was a little bit older... I told them I was gonna be 18, which is not technically a lie, cause at one point... I was gonna be 18!
I can ride a horse
Actor Eddie Redmayne pretended he could ride at his audition for 2005 miniseries Elizabeth I and ended up regretting it.
Director Tom Hooper asked: Have you ever been on a horse? and he said yes.
Eddie said: “Cut to Lithuania, two weeks later, a huge street, Helen Mirren at the end on a balcony, Jeremy Irons, rain machines, 50 extras, spurs and I'm thinking, ‘At what point do I tell them I’ve never ridden a horse.’
“I nearly killed people as the horse galloped off.
"Tom came out with his megaphone and yelled: ‘You’re a f***ing liar!’“ (mirror.co.uk)
