A person given to hypocrisy. It comes from the Middle English ipocrite, derived from Old French, passed down from late Latin hypocrita, from Greek hupocrits, actor, from hupokrnesthai, to play a part, pretend; So all Actors in Hollywood are literally hypocrites, especially the most famous ones. Anyone who pretends to be, do or have something they are not, do not or have not, or who acts like they aren't what they are, don't do what they do, or have what they have, are literal hypocrites.

I didn't have sex with that woman!
Mission Accomplished!
I love that woman!
I'm innocent your Honor!
