Celebs That Turned Down DWTS Invites
Lifestyle - News
Al Yankovic
"Weird Al" Yankovic turned down an invite from "Dancing with the Stars" because the iconic comedic singer isn’t thrilled about appearing on reality TV. Yankovic said, "I know there's a zillion people who watch the show, and it would probably be 'good for my career,' but it's just not my thing."
Queen Latifah
Queen Latifah brought the house down as a guest performer in "DWTS" Seasons 5 and 9, but the actress and musician has no plans to participate in the show. Latifah tweeted, "No truth to the rumors of me doing Dancing With The Stars. Love the show though so I'll be watching just like you!"
Jamie Lee Curtis
When "DWTS" first asked Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis to take part in the show, Curtis responded with a hard no. However, Curtis later said, "I would do Dancing with the Stars. If they gave me a million dollars to give to a charity [...] I would only do it if there was a big charity component."
Bill Clinton
When "DWTS" extended an invitation to former president Bill Clinton, he turned down the offer, explaining that he "didn't have the time to train for it. You know you actually go out there and you train, you really work at it. So I had to pass." It seems Clinton is still quite busy decades after his presidency.
Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen actually agreed to join Season 28 of "DWTS," but left before the premiere; the actor explained, "At the end of the day, I have two left feet and I just can't dance." The fallout of this decision caused Sheen to lose out on a massive deal from ABC, which relied on his "DWTS" appearance.
