When it comes to interviews, celebrities are usually kept pretty restrained. I remember one experience of being on a red carpet for a movie premiere: one reporter asked Michelle Williams the wrong question about her daughter and the dozen reporters that were left were suddenly not allowed to interview her at all (luckily, I got my questions in before) – her publicist angrily whisked her away after scolding the confused reporter.
That’s why when candid celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, who has talked about her uneven boob size and butt plugs, come around, the world goes kind of crazy. It’s refreshing to see stars speak open and honestly, without an annoying filter that keeps us from truly getting to know them. This is why we all are immediately intrigued whenever a celeb opens up about something like masturbation, which is pretty taboo to talk about in the U.S. (although definitely not here on Gurl). So when Seth Rogen recently tweeted about masturbating to RuPaul (more on that in a sec), we all giggled and clapped our hands. And I thought about the other stars who have discussed self-pleasure. Here are 12 amazing celebrity quotes about masturbation.
Seth RogenSeth Rogen ended his 2013 with a bang, by revealing that he used to masturbate to RuPaul when he was a kid. After RuPaul tweeted that This Is The End was one of his favorite movies of the year, Seth tweeted ".@RuPaul thanks Ru Paul! When I was 15, I accidentally jacked off to a picture of you thinking you were a girl!!" Oh, Seth. Never stop being you. Source: Apega/WENN.com
John MayerAre you really surprised that candid John Mayer had some pretty weird things to say about masturbation? In his now infamous Rolling Stone interview, Mayer said: "I have masturbated myself out of serious problems in my life. The phone doesn't pick up because I'm masturbating. And I have excused myself at the oddest times so as to not make mistakes. If Tiger Woods only knew when to jerk off. It has a true market value, like gold bullion. First of all, I don't jerk off because I'm horny. I'm sort of half-chick. It's like District 9. I can fire alien weapons. I can insert a tampon. No, I do it because I want to take a brain bath. It's like a hot whirlpool for my brain, in a brain space that is 100 percent agreeable with itself." Well, at least he's honest? Source: Wenn
James FrancoJames Franco is one of the most honest celebrities out there, so it makes total sense that he's discussed masturbation in an interview before. A few years ago, Franco told the LA Times: "I'm in hotels a lot for a lot of my life. And I don't mind it because I have a lot of stuff to do on my own. I have a lot of reading to do for school or whatever .... You asked! So, when I'm alone, I do masturbate a lot," He's basically just saying what everyone was thinking. Source: Apega/WENN.com
Anna KendrickAbout a year or so ago, Anna Kendrick made me officially have a girl crush on her when she tweeted about masturbating to Ryan Gosling. She said, "Ugh - NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered "inappropriate" Obviously a joke, but such a good one.

Shia LaBeoufShia, once an innocent Disney Channel star, had probably the creepiest thing to say about his masturbating habits. When asked about being on set with Cameron Diaz and Lucy Lui, he brought up his, uh, self-pleasure habits and said, "Their trailers were visible through my window... I'd be inside totally going at it. Just the thought of them changing... was enough to get me off." Um, okay? Source: WENN.com
Taylor MomsenTaylor Momsen has never been one to shy away from talking about anything controversial, so it was no surprise that she gave her thoughts on masturbation during an interview with The Guardian. Her statements were actually pretty smart though. She said: “I’m a promoter of masturbation. Don’t sleep around... learn yourself first! Guys do it, but girls don’t. They should. That’s why girls have so many bad experiences. But you can know your body, know yourself, know what feels good. You don’t have to give yourself away just to have sexual relevance. I don’t think sex is something people should be afraid of. It’s part of human nature. I don’t think it should be so shameful, particularly for girls and young girls.” Agreed! Source: WENN.com
Ryan ReynoldsRyan Reynolds talked about masturbation in the cutest way possible when he did an interview with Conan O'Brien. When discussing a time he got in trouble in school, he said, "I got suspended. And I always found that so bizarre, that the worst thing that they could do to you is make you not go to school. Like I'm 15-years-old, as though sitting at home all day masturbating to Spanish soap operas is supposed to teach me a lesson." When Conan and the audience cracked up, he added, "You're 15, you can masturbate to a car accident, give me a break." Source: DyD Fotografos/Future Image/WENN.com
Aubrey PlazaConan must have a knack for getting celebs to discuss masturbation, because when promoting The To-Do List, Aubrey Plaza talked about it with him. In one scene, she is masturbating and apparently, it's not an act... she really is masturbating. She said, "And then I went and I touched myself." Then added: "I asked the director what should I do and she said, 'masturbate, like it says in the script.'" Source: Brian To/WENN.com
Aubrey O'DayTo no one's surprise, Aubrey O'Day is another celeb who definitely isn't shy about anything sex-related. When talking about her best friend Jenna Jameson, she said, "I watched [Jenna Jameson] before she was my BFF, I don't watch her anymore. I was masturbating one night to, like, Anal Sex Compilation #3 or whatever and she was in it and I was like, 'Oh no!' I had to turn it off. It was horrible." Imagine accidentally masturbating to your bestie? Awkward! Source: FayesVision/WENN.com
Jeremy PivenThe Entourage star is another one who's not afraid to be a little too honest about masturbation. According to The Frisky, he once said, "If masturbation is a crime than I should be on death row." Alrighty! Source: FayesVision/WENN.com
Eva LongoriaEva Longoria loves masturbating and wants the whole world to know it! She has said that "the best sex I have ever had was with my vibrator." She even discussed the first time she discovered vibrators, saying, "I was working on a movie and knew I'd be there for a month, so I used my per diem to buy a vibrator. I didn't begin enjoying sex until I started masturbating... It's a shame I didn't discover it sooner... Everybody should (masturbate)." Source: Lia Toby/WENN.com
Nick CannonNick Cannon is REALLY into his wife, Mariah Carey. Last year on Howard Stern, he talked about how they had sex to her music. He also said that when she's not there, he masturbates to her music. His favorite song of hers to do it to is "Hero." Uh, okay. Source: FayesVision/WENN.com
