NBA superstar Steph Curry recently made headlines when he stated that the moon landing was a fake. This had fans – and conspiracy theorists – all over the world jumping to the conclusion that Curry was one of those who believed conspiracies. All this happened on a podcast called Winging It. When asked if astronauts had ever landed on the moon, his exact words were “No. They’re going to come get us. I don’t think so, either. Sorry, I don’t want to start conspiracies.”

NASA responded by inviting the NBA player to visit it’s moon lab and look at lunar rocks. Curry was quick to backpedal and take back his statements when the media whiplash came. In addition to accepting NASA’s generous offer, Curry released a statement retracting his previous words: “Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast.”

But Curry is far from the only celebrity to believe in a conspiracy theory. Let’s take a look at some big name celebrities who are known to believe in some of these.

Kyrie Irving

Another NBA player, Irving actually spoke to the press when Curry was lumped into the same category as him. Years ago, Irving not only told the world he believe the earth was flat – but he tried to convince the masses to also believe it. Like Curry, Irving later retracted his statements and apologized.

Bruce Willis

Actor Bruce Willis has gone public about his belief in a popular theory that Lee Harvey Oswald did not, in fact, assassinate JFK. Instead, Willis believes that the assassination of President Kennedy was the act of a group of people who “were powerful for a long time.” Those same people are supposedly in power somewhere still, although Willis admits they aren’t as high up as they once were. Who was this group? Nobody knows… or at least they aren’t telling us.


The singer is another believer of the “flat earth” conspiracy theory. He went public with an image that was supposed to prove this theory, but only managed to get a lot of bad press by the scientific community who tried (and supposedly failed) to explain why you can’t see the curve in the earth.

B.o.B. is fond of conspiracies, actually. He also believes that the Holocaust never actually happened, but was a government ploy. Clones, to him, are a thing, and mirror lizards too. Needless to say, B.o.B. believes in the vast majority of major conspiracies – and is VERY vocal about it.

Tila Tequila

Tila Tequila also believes the earth is flat. She stated so on Twitter, right before she was banned from the site for hate speech against the Jewish community… including some edgy remarks about how the Nazi’s were right.

Mark Ruffalo

The actor is one of many celebrities who don’t believe the tragic 9/11 twin towers accident ever happened. During a 2007 interview, Ruffalo said that he “saw the way they all came down… buildings don’t fall down like that. I’ve done quite a bit of my own research… that investigation [is] completely illegitimate.”

Woody Harrelson

Harrelson believes in a number of popular conspiracy theories. He believes that there are secret societies around the world that work towards separating people based on class. That’s in addition to believe 9/11 and the JFK assassination were both fakes. He is another celebrity that is very outspoken about his beliefs, and has supposedly collected a large amount of evidence to prove them right.

Demi Lovato

The former Disney actress has been very vocal lately about the idea of alien lifeforms. She has even gone so far as stating she knows – beyond a shadow of a doubt – they exist. Also, she believes in a ‘multiverse’ – which, as far as is understood is something akin to typical galaxy movies. You know, the idea that there are a ton of different universes who more or less coexist together.
