The 9 Most Misspelled Celebrity Names

You know those words that seem impossible to spell right on the first try, but are nonetheless part of everyday language? "Apparent." "Vacuum." Even "misspell" is a tough one.

What if your name was as easy to misspell as, well, "misspell"? For some unlucky celebrities (and lucky people who write about them), typos in their names are just a part of the job. After all, there's a reason Cher ditched her birth name, Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere, in favor of a more writer-friendly moniker.

Ahead, check out the nine hardest to spell celebrity names — and examples of mistakes — that prove that no matter how famous you are, you can't escape a typo.

Seth Rogen

The Canadian funnyman may be a staple in Judd Apatow films, but phonetics can trip up even the best of us.

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley: So nice they gave her a name with twice the typos. Knightley faces the classic "e before i" problem, as well as a sneaky "e" thrown into her last name.

Steve Carell

Two rs? Two ls? Hard to say. Sorry, Steve.

Will Ferrell

Ditto Will. Why bother with double consonants?

Judi Dench

What's in a dame's name? An i, that's what.

Zack Snyder

Even Superman has a tough time remembering that the "Man of Steel" director spells his first name with a k.

Zach Galifianakis

More like Zach Galifiak-always-wrong-is.

Scarlett Johansson

There's a reason she's usually referred to as "ScarJo": Double s and t? ScarNo.

Quvenzhané Wallis

Yeah, we can't blame you. Google that one.
