15 Celebrities Who Are The Best At Hiding In Public

At the end of the day, celebrities are just regular people. They do all the things we do. They buy groceries. They fight with their spouses. They ride bicycles. They even ride the subway. Just like any other person, they go out in the daylight and walk amongst us. People tend to forget this sometimes. Many of us have this strange notion that celebrities live in a magical dream world that we “mere mortals” will never see, that somehow they exist on a different plane of existence than the common folk. This simply isn’t true. They are just like us.

Some of these celebrities have no problems with interacting with people and making their presence known. Others like to keep it more low key, disguising themselves in plain sight, brushing through crowds of people who are completely unaware. Actors especially have a natural talent for blending in with crowds, somehow making themselves very unnoticeable without even trying.

This is a list of some of these well-known celebrities who are masters at going out in public without causing a scene, who can evade the paparazzi without any noticeable effort. Some use disguises, while others seem to be able to make themselves invisible to the public using their innate acting skills - fading into the background, suddenly becoming average people that you would never think to look twice at.

15 Shia LaBeouf


Shia LaBeouf had his start on Disney’s Even Stevens, and since then he has evolved into a huge star. When you reach stardom of these levels, moving around in public can be hard. Everything you do is examined and judged by everyone. It doesn’t help when these activities involve some pretty controversial things, including getting into fights and brandishing knives at neighbours. The fact that he was constantly under the watchful eye of the public led Shia to do some pretty insane things, even crazier than what he was already doing. One example of this was the method which he used to hide from the public.

14 Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin is definitely one of the most successful actors of all time. He has worked on some stunning films and projects, making him the centre of attention whenever he leaves his house. Unfortunately, this started to be a bit too stressful for Baldwin, and he has blown his top at the paparazzi numerous times. The most well-known incident occurred when a paparazzi was filming his wife and newly born daughter. He assaulted this nosy photographer, and was shrouded in controversy as a result. He has also been stalked before by numerous people.

13 Matthew Mcconaughey

Matthew McConaughey is one actor who is instantly recognizable to most people everywhere. He is an actor that has an incredible range - playing many diverse roles throughout his incredible career. Although he is an actor that is constantly watched by the paparazzi, he hasn’t been involved in too many controversies, as he knows how to keep cool in the direst of situations. Because he has played so many different roles, he definitely knows how to disguise himself with many personas in order to fool the paparazzi.

12 Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is definitely one of the most talked about celebrities today. You can’t go twenty four hours without hearing her name mentioned in the newspaper or on television. She has been involved in a lot of controversy, especially in recent years. Just a few days ago she was involved in yet another conflict with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, a couple who seem intent on making Tay-Tay’s life as miserable as possible. Kanye famously interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech during her acceptance of a music award, and since then the two have been feuding.

11 Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba is one of the prettiest stars ever, so it’s no surprise that she’s constantly being watched. She has topped many “World’s Sexiest Women” lists from magazines such as FHM and Maxim. She wasn’t too happy when Playboy Magazine featured a picture of her, however. The picture, which was used without her permission, seemed to imply that there was a nude picture of her inside the magazine. When she threatened to sue, Hugh Hefner personally called the star and apologized, offering to donate large sums of money to Alba’s two charities. She accepted, and she stopped trying to sue the magazine. Jessica is one of those stars that has become famous for not only being a beautiful and talented actress, but also an amazing force for good in the community, and she has created many charities that raise tons of money.

10 Tyra Banks


Tyra Banks is famous for being a Victoria’s Secret model, but she got her real taste of mega fame when she started hosting America’s Next Top Model, an extremely successful television show. As well as being a model, she appeared on numerous television shows and movies, including Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. She has also done a lot of work for charity. She is immediately recognizable, as she has stunning facial features. She was, after all, a model.

9 Seth Rogen

Seth Rogen is one of the most successful comedians of our time. He is also one of the finest actors to emerge out of Canada. He has appeared in numerous films, many of which he has written or co-written himself. One of the most successful films he has ever written was Superbad. This was a film based on his own experiences in Vancouver as a teen. Not too long ago, not many people knew who he was, but nowadays, just about anyone would recognize him on the street if they ever saw him.

8 Jake Gyllenhaall

Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the most loved and respected men in the acting profession today. He has accomplished much in his career, and he is quite young still, so expect a lot more from this talented actor. He has dated Reese Witherspoon, Kirsten Dunst, and Taylor. He is also very involved in politics, and he actively campaigned for Presidential candidate John Kerry. He was quoted as saying “It’s a sad time when actors are politicians and politicians are actors.”

7 Crispin Glover

Crispin Glover is one of the best actors of all time. Although he is undoubtedly skilled, many people don’t know who he is, and he is extremely underrated. His most recent appearance was on Alice Through The Looking Glass as the queen’s henchman. He is also famous for his performances in the first Back To The Future movie and in Charlie’s Angels. His lack of appearances might be due to the fact that he sued the production of Back To The Future for using his likeness without his permission.

6 Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes is a household name in the world of Hollywood. She has topped many “Sexiest Women Of The Year” lists, as well as “Most Beautiful People” lists. She also is very fashion-savvy, and many magazines have also included her in their “Best-Dressed Celebrities” lists. She has also made headlines for the wrong reasons. When she divorced Tom Cruise, it was all over the news, and she claims she was being intimidated by both Cruise and the Church of Scientology.

5 Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling has seen immense success in recent years and is emerging as one of the most beloved actors today, especially among the younger female crowd. He is another Canadian actor came to America and made it big. His first big role was the film The Notebook, and he has seen success in the movie Drive, The Big Short, and many others since his emergence. He now owns his own restaurant in Beverly Hills, which he bought “on an impulse.”

4 Liev Schreiber


Liev Schreiber is one of the most respected actors in the business today. He has given some amazing performances, both on stage and in films, and he is praised by critics, fellow actors, and the general public. His first big break was in the Scream movies. He later appeared in films like The Manchurian Candidate, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and many more. He is also an accomplished Shakespearean actor of the classical plays.

3 Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most well-known actors today, and perhaps one of the most successful actors of all time. Everyone around the globe knows Leo, and as soon as you see his face you know who he is. Even people in 3rd world countries know who he is, and can probably list the movies he has been in. He is truly a superstar. He even has his own Island off the coast of Belize. He has been involved with some of the hottest women alive, including models Bar Rafaeli and Gisele Bundchen.

2 Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro is arguably the most talented actor alive today. He has consistently wowed audiences everywhere, and it seems like every film he touches turns to gold. There was once a time when Robert De Niro was still a young, new talent, and no one really knew who he was. Those days are now gone. Perhaps De Niro sometimes looks back on these days, remembering fondly his youth, when he could walk down the street without people stopping to stare, snap photos, and ask him for an autograph.

1 Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves is an incredibly successful actor, and a man of mystery. Behind the face that has graced so many successful films, there is an untold story that not many people know. He began his career in Toronto. His first child was stillborn. The mother of that stillborn child died 18 months later. He also lost his best friend, River Phoenix, to a drug overdose. He was also involved in a controversial court case that involved him being accused of crashing his Porsche into a paparazzi.

You might assume that after such a heartbreaking life, this actor would shut himself inside and become depressed. Well, you might be right about the depressed part, but not the shutting himself indoors part. Keanu seems to wander throughout the city, taking the subway, sitting alone on park benches, and generally being where you wouldn’t expect him to be. But he still looks very sad, almost in every picture of him he’s looking off into space with this depressed look on his face. Regardless of his fame, he’s probably one of the best celebrities at blending into his surroundings. If you didn’t look closely at him, you would think it’s just some sad sad, modestly dressed dude on a bench.
