15 Excellent put-downs by famous Men! - Two
Joe Frazier (about Muhammad Ali)
He's phony, using his blackness to get his way.
Reply from Muhammad Ali
Joe Frazier is so ugly he should donate his face to the US Bureau of Wildlife.
Keith Richards (about Elton John)
His writing is limited to songs for dead blondes.
Elton John (about Keith Richards)
I'm glad I've given up drugs and alcohol. It would be awful to be like Keith Richards. He's pathetic. It's like a monkey with arthritis, trying to go on stage and look young. I have great respect for the Stones but they would have been better if they had thrown Keith out 15 years ago!
Lady Astor (to Winston Churchill)
If I were married to you, I'd put poison in your coffee.
Winston Churchill, in reply
If you were my wife, I'd drink it.
John Montague (to John Wilkes)
You will either die on the gallows or of a loathsome disease.
John Wilkes, in reply
That depends on whether I embrace your principles or your mistress!
David Letterman (about Warren Beatty, 1991)
The only reason he had a child is so that he can meet babysitters!
Ronald Reagan (about Clint Eastwood running for mayor of Carmel)
What makes him think a middle-aged actor, who's played with a chimp, could have a future in politics?
Rex Reed (about Marlon Brando)
Most of the time he sounds like he has a mouth full of wet toilet paper!
Johnny Carson (about Chevy Chase)
He couldn't ad-lib a fart after a baked-bean dinner.
Marlon Brando (about Montgomery Clift)
He acts like he's got a Mixmaster up his ass and doesn't want anyone to know it.
King Vidor (about Gary Cooper)
He got a reputation as a great actor by just thinking hard about the next line.
Charlie Sheen (about Colin Farrell)
I've got three words for him: Am. A. Teur.
Howard Hughes (about Clark Gable)
His ears made him look like a taxicab with both doors open.
Groucho Marx (about Chico Marx)
Now there sits a man with an open mind. You can feel the draft from here!
