If you are one of those people who believe that celebrities have always been cool and that all their performances in front of the camera are epic, then you are in for a rude shock. Today the media paints a flawless picture of the kind of lives that our famous celebrities live, and how carefully they choose the movies they will feature in because they have a reputation to uphold. However, even the best of these celebrities were at one time looking for a way into the industry, and they did some pretty ridiculous things. Thanks to the Internet, the performances that these celebrities are most embarrassed about are available for our watching pleasure.

Japanese ads are probably the biggest compilation of celebrities' most embarrassing performances, because they have a hilarious way of making these celebrities look so silly. It would shock you to realize that so many of today's stars have promoted Japanese products in ads that they would not be caught dead doing in Hollywood, simply because they would be embarrassed to do so at home. However, even if these celebrities travel halfway across the globe to make some money in not-so-cool ads, we will eventually find out what they did and share the outrageousness of their performances with our friends.

Here are 10 celebrities who have featured in at least one embarrassing Japanese ad, and they have probably been hoping that people will have forgotten about what they did in Japan. Since we love the following celebrities at their best in the Hollywood movies, let us laugh at them at their 'not-so-best' in Japanese ads that they might not be so proud of today.

10 John Travolta – Tokyo Drink ad

9 Tommy Lee Jones – Suntory Boss Coffee ad

8 Lucy Liu – Suntory Diet Beer ad

7 Harrison Ford - Kirin Beer ad

6 Charlize Theron – Honda ad

5 Jean-Claude Van Damme – Black Black Gum ad

4 Leonardo DiCaprio – Jim Beam ad

3 Nicolas Cage – Sankyo Pachinko ad

2 Arnold Schwarzenegger – Alinamin V Energy Drink

1 Sylvester Stallone - Ito Ham/Bayern Sausage ad

Think of Sylvester Stallone and all that comes to mind is Rambo knocking down doors and shooting randomly at the enemy. Stallone is truly a badass in all his movies, and people especially love the fighting scenes where he finally kills the bad guy after a tough hand to hand combat. Therefore, people who heard that Stallone was acting in a Ham commercial must have had seriously high expectations of mind-blowing Ham action, only for their hopes to be quashed. All the characters that Stallone has played over his career would be embarrassed at his participation in this ad, but the disappointment never dampened the Japanese people's spirits to enjoy the Ito Ham.
