As we all know, celebrities commonly endorse their own products: TV shows, movies, apparel lines, even bottles of overpriced fragrances that smell like rubbing alcohol. But probably my favorite strain of celebrity endorsements, simply because I take an absurd amount of pleasure in eating (particularly around the holidays), is that related to the food and beverage industry.

Sometimes these endorsements are very literal, as in the case of a commercial or billboard, but other times they take shape in more subtle ways, such as a reoccurring storyline in a television series. With the holiday eating season upon us, I thought it’d be appropriate to take a look at some of the most memorable celebrity food endorsements, as components of larger trends, from the past 30 years.


Digg!

Campy

Surveying the past 30 years, it’s clear that celebrity food endorsements were once significantly campier than they are today, no longer as wrought with clichés, overacting, and corny jokes. The celebrities in these endorsements hammed up every moment of their on-camera time, as though audiences would be at a complete loss without their comically exaggerated speech and actions. Oh yes, the 80s were a magical time.

A leader in campy food endorsements was the great Bill Cosby, whose love for Jell-o will not escape our memories anytime soon. Just thinking about his commercials makes me want to run to the market and buy some pudding pops.

She’s vehemently defended her privacy when it comes to her love life. And in a new interview with GQ magazine, Jennifer Aniston has finally broken the silence about her relationship with John Mayer.

The “Rumor Has It” hottie began the discourse with two very strong statements: “I am not having his baby. And I have not popped the question.”

They’re one of the most recognizable couples in all of Hollywood, so it’s no wonder Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie receive all kinds of media attention.

However, when the New York Times made the assertion that the “Changeling” actress was a master at controlling the press, Pitt stepped in for her defense.
