Stars' Most Regrettable Moments

Paula Abdul's Idol blunder, Nikki Blonsky's airport brawl, Miss USA's tumble – it's all the "oops!" and blunders we just can't forget. By Aaron Parsley


Asked on the red carpet in Cannes about the earthquake in China that killed 80,000 people, Sharon Stone said she was "not happy with the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans" and wondered, "Is that Karma, when you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?" The actress later admitted, "I misspoke. I could not be more regretful of that mistake." Still, she wasn't invited to the country's Shanghai International Film Festival, which she had attended in 2007.
