Everyone has moments in their life in which they definitely did not look their best. The advantage we ordinary folks don’t realize we have, is that our embarrassing moments probably aren’t going to get caught on camera. Celebrities, on the other hand, have to worry about this constantly… or they just stop caring (the latter is probably what ends up happening).
The 15 celebrities on our list aren’t fortunate enough to have their embarrassing moments erased from existence, instead, these moments have been captured and shared for our viewing pleasure. You’ll be left amazed and laughing at the situations in which these beautiful stars were caught looking not so beautiful.
Whether it’s Hilton crying in handcuffs (maybe she should’ve thought things through before ending up in the back of a cop car?), Robbie taking a tumble in the ocean, or the two celebrities who got caught “using the washroom” on camera (here’s a hint… they weren’t in a washroom), these are definitely some of the most unflattering moments of these stars’ lives.
Sure, you probably won’t start questioning if they’re attractive anytime soon, but that still doesn’t mean they don’t look downright terrible in the photos we’ve compiled for you below.
15. Katy Perry Gets Messy Before Taking A Tumble
Katy Perry knew that the fans expected a show when they attended the MTV Latin America Awards back in 2008, and she was determined to give them something they wouldn’t forget.
Instead of just jumping out of a cake, Perry decided to jump on top of the cake which understandably, sent icing everywhere. We’re sure it was quite the spectacle, but it definitely wasn’t the most logical thing in the world.
What you then get to see is the unfortunate aftermath of Perry attempting to walk off her jump, only to fall in the icing!
14. Hilton Crying In Cuffs
That look definitely is not hot! Hilton was arrested back in 2007 for violating her probation that included driving with a suspended license that she earned with a DUI in 2006. Who knew that it wasn’t a good idea to drink and drive (besides you know, everyone)?
Needless to say, when she got informed that she was going back to jail (after previously claiming she was unable to be there due to an unspecified medical condition), she didn’t take it too well.
Reports claim that Hilton literally had to be dragged out of the courtroom and as you can tell by the above photos, was clearly hysterical.
Hilton at least had a positive reaction to the experience following her stint, saying to Larry King,
13. Ke$ha Tweets Her Bathroom Activities
The photo may not be the best quality in the entire world, but there’s no denying what is going on when you consider Ke$ha also tweeted “pee pee on the street. PoPo come n get me if u can find meeee. I blame traffik.”
Talk about gross on just so many levels. This isn’t the first time Ke$ha’s toilet preferences have made the news. Back in 2009, Lily Allen came out and admitted that she saw Ke$ha peeing in a sink at a London pub, something that Ke$ha was proud of…for some reason,
“People made a big deal about me peeing in the sink, but that wasn’t that shocking. I wasn’t even drunk. It’s an animal instinct as humans and as an animal. I had to pee and outside there’s paparazzi everywhere — what am I supposed to do?”
12. Lady Gaga Murders Kermit
Lady Gaga has worn a lot of outrageous outfits in her life, but the above one may top them all.
When asked about why Gaga elected to wear a suit of dead Kermits you’ll be glad to hear she at least had a reason:
“I really loved this one in particular because I thought it was a commentary on not wearing fur, ’cause I hate fur and I don’t wear fur. We were all laughing in the house about how it looks like a pile of dead Kermits.”
11. Madonna Falls On Stage
Madonna is no stranger to making your jaw drop when she walks out on the stage to perform. But back in 2015 when performing at the BRIT awards, she made the audience gasp in a very different way when she fell flat on her back after her cape got caught!
The above photo is far from flattering and shows Madonna only moments before going splat.
Piers Morgan ripped into Madonna for the performance and outfit, saying, “Keep the cape ON, the fishnet stockings OFF, and start to act your damn age. If not for your kids, or once fervent fans like me, then for the sake of humanity.”
While it’s clear Madonna still loves her fishnets, at least she’s been better at keeping her balance.
10. Snooki’s Smeared Makeup In Jail
Now to be fair, when you get your claim to fame for appearing on Jersey Shore, a mugshot is definitely not the most shocking thing in the world. But there’s no denying that Snooki looks less than fabulous in the above photo that was taken after she was arrested for disorderly conduct following a drunken incident.
“It was a good wake-up call for me. It definitely embarrassed my family and that’s just not good. Obviously, I like to party. I like to have a good time but maybe I’m overdoing it a little too much. So right now I’m just watching myself and I can have a good time not drinking,” said Snooki when talking about the incident.
9. Margot Robbie Attempts Surfing
Margot Robbie is one of the most exciting celebrities in Hollywood and has no shortage of roles in which she is incredibly hard to take your eyes off of. Naturally, when she elects to go out to the beach as she did back in July 2016, the paparazzi isn’t going to be far behind.
Which means you have to give her extra credit for heading out and trying her luck on a surfboard alongside her then-boyfriend (now husband) Tom Ackerley.
You’ll probably agree that one of the most embarrassing experiences you could have is unintentionally soiling yourself in public. Now just imagine if you’re a celebrity and have this experience when you’re on stage performing in front of your fans.
That’s the experience Fergie had, in a situation that she called,
“The most unattractive moment of my life. It does not just happen all the time. We were late for stage, driving down the freeway, it’s Friday traffic…get to the stage, we have to start right the show.”
7. Hugh Jackman Swimming
Hugh Jackman may be one of the sexiest celebrities in Hollywood, but he’s never been far from the side of his wife Deborra-Lee Furness who he has been with for over 20 years.
The two were celebrating their anniversary when they decided to hit up the beach, but as you can tell from the above photos, the paparazzi definitely caught some unflattering photos of Wolverine!
When talking about their getaway, Jackman was clear about his aspirations, “We love the kids but they can rack off and find something else to do for a week. We want to relive our honeymoon,” which we’re sure he was able to accomplish!
6. Rihanna’s Family Guy Dress
Rihanna knew she was going to turn heads when she appeared at the CFDA Awards show back in 2014 and in the process, strategically “forgetting” a bra and allowing the world a chance to see all of her.
Understandably, social media was buzzing following the ceremony and while this outfit may be one of your favorites that she’s worn, it was Family Guy that helps solidify the spot on the list.
5. Beyonce At The Super Bowl
Beyonce has countless photos of her on the internet where she may look like the sexiest woman in the entire world. Then she has photos like the one above that were so unflattering, her publicist tried to get them ripped off the internet!
“As discussed, there are some unflattering photos on your current feed that we are respectfully asking you to change. I am certain that you will be able to find some better photos,” wrote her publicist to Buzzfeed who were a large force behind the photos going viral.
4. Ireland Baldwin’s Drunken Stumble
Ireland may never be as famous as her father Alec, but she’s definitely working hard to make a name for herself as a model. Sadly, her life is also one of turmoil and she has spent some time in rehab and as you can see from the above photo, definitely loves to party.
The photo was taken less than a month ago and perhaps understandably, when you consider what she’s wearing, led to some wardrobe malfunctions as well.
When talking about the night Ireland said, “I looked pretty decent before everyone kept bringing me drinks and making me sing David Bowie song songs.”
3. Jennifer Lawrence Falling
Jennifer Lawrence was on top of the world at the Oscars when she won an Academy Award for Best Actress, but then she zoned out of what she was doing when she was walking to accept her award and took one of the most infamous nosedives in Hollywood history.
“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell,” said Lawrence when explaining what caused her tumble.
2. Britney Spears’ Crazy 2007
If you had any doubt that Britney Spears had herself a tough 2007, you just need to take a look at the two photos above from that year. The one on the left features Spears mid-shave, a decision she made following a one-day stint in rehab.
Then you also have the moment when Spears decided that the smart thing to do with her day was to attack a paparazzi member’s car with an umbrella. Combined with the bald head, it was definitely not a good look for Britney.
1. Scarlett Johansson Loses Her Balance For A Role
When it comes to unflattering photos, Scarlett Johansson has the unfortunate distinction of having this above one actually turn into a meme with countless hilarious Photoshop edits of her mid-tumble.
Now we do have to be fair and tell you the context of the photo, as Scarlett was actually filming a scene for her movie Under the Skin but it didn’t make the moment any more appealing. At least we know that she probably does a large portion of her stunts for The Avengers!
Johansson definitely has several scenes in the movie however that show her at her very best, including one where she elects to act in her birthday suit.
