Guilty pleasures of the stars

David Duchovny, Patrick Stewart, Jodie Foster, and others share what they adore

Posted on

Beavis and Butt-head. That series makes me laugh like a drain. I watch it obsessively.”
PATRICK STEWART

“Barry Manilow. He’s so schmaltzy I could cry. I always watch Melrose Place. As far as movies go, I bought my wife [Tea Leoni] Dorf on Golf, and we didn’t laugh once.”
DAVID DUCHOVNY

“Jerry Springer. I get into that.”
HARRY CONNICK JR.

“I like to watch Loveline because it’s such a bizarre mixture of advice and derision towards the people who ask the questions.”
JENNIFER TILLY

“I think I’m a pop-culture guilty pleasure.”
JODIE FOSTER

“Chevy Chase in any of the Vacation films. One day we’ll realize that Chevy is really underrated.”
MATT DILLON

Soap. It’s just crazy to me. It’s so bold. Especially for back then. It was just a twisted sense of humor. Maybe I’m twisted.”
HEAVY D

“I am really into Knight Rider reruns. Something about KITT the car and David Hasselhoff. I can watch it for hours.”
COURTNEY THORNE-SMITH

“I listen to the soundtrack for Grease every day. I dance around my house pretending to be Sandy.”
TORI SPELLING

“I’ve seen The Way We Were probably 50 times, and I cry every damn time.”
KEVIN SORBO

“I’ve always been into the Three Stooges, which I guess is a really juvenile thing, but most guys really never get over them.”
MEL GIBSON

“The Spice Girls. I dance in front of the mirror to ‘I’m giving you everything…’ I like that.”
TYRA BANKS

“Every time South Pacific is on cable I’m hooked. I know every single song by heart.”
JIM CARREY

Hideous Sun Demon is my guilty pleasure. It’s a great ’50s horror movie about nuclear radiation and mutations. It’s about this guy who turns into a lizard if he goes out in the sun. And that was really neat. So there’s this scene where the lizard man goes up on the roof of this sexy girl’s apartment and finds a woman in a bikini sunbathing. She’s talking to him with her eyes closed. Finally, she opens them and screams, ‘What happened to your face?’ It’s a great moment.”
