* DAVID ARQUETTE
”Math, because my brain doesn’t work so good when it comes to that kind of stuff.”

* COURTENEY COX
”History. My teacher was really boring and he didn’t explain things in a way that I can remember or understand.”

* MICHELLE WILLIAMS (”Dawson’s Creek”)
”Math, chemistry, and everything science related just sucked.”

* SHARON LAWRENCE
”Oh, math! But believe me, I still know how to add and subtract for my bank account.”

* LESLEY ANN WARREN
”Math. Why? It beats me. I just couldn’t f—ing do it.”

* MARGARET CHO
”Math, because I never paid attention. Stereotypically, Asians are generally considered to be very good at math, and to not be made me feel really odd and awful.”

* ELLEN DeGENERES
”I was bad at everything except PE. So, kids, don’t let them tell you education is important, because I couldn’t do anything right in school and look at me.”

* LUCY LIU (”Ally McBeal”)
”History. I didn’t get it. I rejected it at a young age and I guess that means I am doomed to repeat it.”

* JANE KRAKOWSKI (”Ally McBeal”)
”Typing. I always play secretaries and I can’t type! I had to flirt my way through that class — that’s probably where I got Elaine’s flirtatious quality.”

* GIOVANNI RIBISI
”Girls”

* JOSH LEONARD (”The Blair Witch Project”)
”Earth sciences, definitely”

* RICHARD KIND (”Spin City”)
”Economics. It never made any sense to me. It was all about making the correct change.”
