Andy Cohen knows how to get celebrities to spill the tea. Every weeknight on "Watch What Happens Live," the Bravo exec asks questions as A-list stars mingle with Bravolebrities — and the results are pretty epic. In honor of Andy's 51st birthday on June 2, 2019, Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at some of the most shocking revelations from "WWHL," starting with one of Andy's favorite guests — Jennifer Lawrence. When the Oscar-winning actress first visited "WWHL" in 2015, she opened up about her "Hunger Games" co-star Liam Hemsworth. During a game of "Plead the Fifth," she was asked if the two ever locked lips when cameras weren't rolling. "Liam and I grew up together. Liam's real hot. What would you have done? … Yeah, I have," she admitted. When the host said he would pick Liam's Gale over Josh Hutcherson's Peeta, she chimed in, "I did, at one point."

Susan Sarandon does this before award shows

Teresa Giudice didn't understand her plea agreement
Bravolebrity Teresa Giudice has had her fair share of chats with Andy Cohen, but in 2014, the "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star sat down with him and husband Joe Giudice and somberly admitted that she didn't know that her plea agreement in a federal fraud case could send her to prison for 27 months (she later served a shorter sentence). "I didn't fully understand it," she said. "I thought my lawyer was going to fight for me. I mean, that's what lawyers do. I don't know. That's why you hire an attorney. You put it in their hands. I mean, whatever they wanted from me — believe me — I followed their direction. Whatever they wanted, I gave them. I'm not trying to hide anything."
John Mayer revealed which male celebrity he's most into

However, by passing on this question, he was forced to name a celebrity with whom he would take a "dip in the man pond." John said his pick would be Ryan Gosling. "Unisexually, everybody would be, like, 'How does that guy do it?'" he explained.

Scott Eastwood appeared on "WWHL" alongside Jon Cryer. When a caller asked about Ashton Kutcher — Jon's "Two and a Half Men" co-star — Scott made a shocking revelation. "He did sleep with one of my ex-girlfriends," Scott shared. "But she was my current girlfriend at the time so…" Turns out Scott's ex was Sara Leal, who famously claimed she hooked up with Ashton at a San Diego hotel when he was still married to Demi Moore. "I think it was the catalyst that broke him and Demi up," Scott said four years after the 2011 scandal.
Anne Hathaway talked about being a stoner
During a 2017 "WWHL" appearance, Anne Hathaway opened up about smoking pot. Host Andy Cohen asked her how big of a stoner she was and she replied, "Not a little one!" But for fear of punishment, she felt the need to explain herself. "Here's the thing though," she said. "I'm a parent and I don't feel like getting arrested, so I'm gonna say zero. I guess I just should've pleaded the fifth on that one, but I don't have a [prescription] card or anything."
Dennis Quaid admitted he's been in a threesome

"I never had any complaints, let's put it that way," Dennis said, ending the segment.
Lindsay Lohan opened up about list of sexual partners
In 2014, Lindsay Lohan effectively confirmed one of the craziest rumors about herself during a visit to "Watch What Happens Live." "I'm going to get serious for a second," the actress-turned-reality star said of the list of her celebrity sexual partners that In Touch magazine printed in 2014. "That was actually my fifth step in AA at Betty Ford [rehab center]. Someone, when I was moving during [my] OWN [reality TV] show, must have taken a photo of it. That's a really personal thing and it's really unfortunate." The list included celebrities like Zac Efron and Justin Timberlake among the 36 men named.
Cameron Diaz has gone swimming in the lady pond
Andy Cohen asked Cameron Diaz if she'd ever "swam in the lady pond" when she visited the Bravo clubhouse in 2014. "What is the lady pond?" the "Other Woman" actress asked, so Andy clarified that he was interested to know if she'd ever been with a woman. "Yes, I have been with a lady," Cameron said. But when Andy inquired if this happened more than once, all the actress would say was, "You didn't ask explicitly how I was with a lady, but I have been with a lady."
Katie Couric shares top complaint about working with Matt Lauer
Katie Couric made a confession to Andy Cohen about former NBC colleague Matt Lauer in 2012 and it became a lot more interesting when the "Today" show anchor was fired for inappropriate sexual behavior five years later. Andy asked the journalist what Matt's most annoying habit had been when they worked together for 15 years. "He pinches me on the a– a lot?" she answered. On a 2018 episode of "Watch What Happens Live," Andy brought her comment back up: "The day the Matt Lauer thing broke, you started trending on Twitter immediately because a clip surfaced of you on ['WWHL'] from 2012. I played 'Plead the Fifth' with you and I said to you, 'What's Matt Lauer's most annoying habit?' And you said he used to pinch you on the a–. I laughed thinking you were joking. Were you joking?" Katie claimed she was joking at the time and that she regretted making the comment.
Jennifer Lopez has no beef with Mariah Carey
Ever since Mariah Carey claimed during an interview in Germany in the 2000s that she didn't know Jennifer Lopez, Andy Cohen has been wondering if they were feuding. So he got up the courage to ask J.Lo during a "WWHL" visit in 2018 (her first!). "I don't have a feud against her at all. I know from back in the day, I read things that she said about me that were not the greatest, but we have never met, we don't know each other. I think it's from like, kind of word of mouth of things that have happened in the past that I'm not really aware of. But I don't know. I would love to meet her and I would love to be friends with her. I think she's incredibly talented and I've always been a fan of hers. … So it saddens me to hear anything that's negative because I'm a fan of hers," Jennifer explained.

I'd better get married.' I think a lot of girls do go through that, where they freak out… thinking they're getting old… their friends are having kids… so it was more of that situation. But I knew, like, [from the] honeymoon, it wasn't going to work out," Kim admitted. She also talked about mom Kris Jenner and the momager's ex, Caitlyn Jenner, and the odds that they'd ever speak again. "Zero. No, one. No, I would say two percent. And those are Kendall and Kylie. That's their percentage. All fair, I think."
Patti LuPone is not a Madonna fan
Patti Lupone did not mince words when it came to discussing Madonna with Andy Cohen. When the Broadway star — who starred in "Evita" on the stage in 1979 — appeared on "WWHL," she called Madonna, who portrayed the same character in the 1996 film version, a "movie killer." She continued, "She's dead behind the eyes. She couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. She should not be on film or on stage. She's a wonderful performer for what she does, but she is not an actress."
Jenna Dewan denies infamous dance-off
Jenna Dewan crushed a major piece of pop culture gossip when she chatted with Andy Cohen in 2017.

"OK, so this dance-off situation — it never happened, people! No! It was in tabloids and everyone thought this happened. I really wish I could say that happened, because that would be the coolest story in the world! It would be so awesome!" she explained. "I wish I could say that, but no, it never happened — not that I saw." Jenna added that she's often asked about this but insisted it "was made up by Us Weekly."
Demi Lovato discussed unfollowing Selena Gomez
In 2014, Andy Cohen just had to know the story behind why his guest, Demi Lovato, unfollowed her former BFF Selena Gomez on Twitter.

"I think it's one of those things where people changed, and people grow apart."
Gerard Butler dished on kissing co-stars
Gerard Butler spilled the tea when Andy Cohen asked him if it was Angelina Jolie, his "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" co-star, or Jennifer Aniston, whom he starred with in "The Bounty Hunter," who was the better kisser. The Scot wasn't into dishing at first, burying his hands in his face and saying, "Ah, no!" as Andy read the question. However, fellow guest 50 Cent insisted, "We need to know this." Finally, Gerard spilled that it was Jen. "I'm just taking you by surprise," he told 50 and Andy.

Matthew Perry refused to do this "Friends" scene
Matthew Perry participated in a special "Friends" edition of "Plead the Fifth" when he visited the "Watch What Happens Live" clubhouse in 2017. For his final question, Andy Cohen asked Matthew to reveal a "Friends" storyline that he felt was ridiculous.

His opinion prevailed and executives cut the story.
Reba McEntire missed out on this epic role
When she appeared on "WWHL" in 2019, Reba McEntire revealed that she was supposed to be in "Titanic." The country music star and actress had been tapped for the role of Molly Brown, which ended up being played by Kathy Bates. "We were on tour and I had a lot of people on the payroll, and we had these three months already scheduled to do the movie and then they got behind on scheduling and said, 'We're gonna have to move it in this time,'" she explained. "We couldn't reschedule all the arenas and everything." Andy Cohen asked her if she was bothered by how successful the film went on to be and she admitted, "Well, sure. Absolutely. But you gotta take care of your people."
Pink was almost hit by this fellow pop star
Pink dared to discuss her years-long feud with Christina Aguilera when Andy Cohen got her to play "Plead the Fifth" in 2017. The singer said their feud could be chalked up to youth and that Xtina was used to dealing with conflict with words, while Pink was used to dealing with drama physically. However, it wasn't Pink who turned things physical — "actually, she swung on me," Pink revealed. "In a club. It was hilarious. I was like, 'What's happening right now?'" Fortunately, their feud was later buried when the two reunited on "The Voice."
Shania Twain has peed herself on stage multiple times
When she sat down with Andy Cohen in 2018, Shania Twain opened up about peeing on stage. "The show must go," she laughed when asked about it. "I was very clever in this one moment. I stood up from my chair to get up and sing, I peed myself, and the puddle? I just knocked my glass of water over," she said. "I was wearing a skirt, thank goodness. … I stood up, it all came out, I was dry and the glass of water (was) on the seat. I think when you're dyslexic you think ahead of these things."
