Awkward Photos Of Iconic Hollywood Stars Their Agents Wanted To BuryBy Jennifer Snow
We all have our favorite Hollywood stars, and seeing them makes us happy. However, the appearances of our favorite A-listers are almost always the result of meticulous planning and preparation. They have teams of individuals working on everything from their wardrobes to their public personas to public relations, and the list goes on.
But occasionally, usually, during the perfect storm, all of that planning is thrown out of the window, and our favorite celebrities are seen in a light that is not, shall we say, as flattering as they would like. So keep scrolling to see the side of Hollywood’s A-listers that their agents would have preferred no one else to see!
Put Yourself in Bella Hadid’s Shoes
Bella Hadid is the most fashionable supermodel nowadays. She has seemingly reached the pinnacle of supermodel success since her presence is now expected at every big fashion event and show. It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that someone of her magnitude is still human.
Until that is, they trip and fall down the steps. True enough, there’s nothing like an excellent ol’ slapstick mishap to show us that we’re all fundamentally the same despite our differences in status, wealth, and fashion sense.
Lady Gaga Finds Her Feet
It’s so ironic that Lady Gaga wrote a hit song about the paparazzi just to have the paparazzi brutally film one of her less magnificent and graceful moments. But we can’t say it hasn’t happened to us; we’ve tripped, fallen, and stumbled more than we can count.
We have pretty much perfected the art of falling over and hitting the ground hard. And yet, when a celebrity like Lady Gaga has a spectacular fall, we cannot help but be shocked—as though we could never, ever experience such a thing.
Leonardo DiCaprio As A Volleyball Player
There aren’t many actors who can hold their own against Leonardo DiCaprio. We doubt we have to persuade anyone that Leo is a top-notch actor—everyone already knows it. And yet, when it comes to volleyball, that’s an entirely different ballgame.
Who could really blame him for wanting to play? But the sport of volleyball is much more challenging than most people realize. There’s a good chance we’d look a lot worse if someone were to secretly take images of us while we were kicking around in the sand.
It’s safe to assume that “don’t fall” wasn’t one of Taylor Swift’s New Year’s resolutions. Fortunately, the successful musician is experiencing a period of relative success. Many of her older albums are being reissued under her name, and she has recently released several critically acclaimed albums.
She generally seems to be enjoying herself. Is there anything else that someone could want? Unfortunately, a slight accident befell Taylor while she was going backstage after a show in New York City. Any aspiring performers out there should take this as a warning!
Like Dust in the Wind by Bailey Noble
Adilyn Bellefleur, the half-fairy played by Bailey Noble on True Blood, became a fan favorite, and the actress has received much attention for her work. Attracting attention from the public is generally a good thing, but it can also lead to intense scrutiny if something goes wrong with your outfit.
This unfortunate photo of Noble shows her privates as the top of her dress blows off in the breeze. The truth is—we’ve witnessed far more humiliating wardrobe disasters. Everything considered this one is mild. Perhaps Noble should count herself lucky that the wind wasn’t stronger.
Jessica Alba As Marilyn Monroe’s Fan
Any skirt is a risky fashion option in New York City because of the abundance of robust air ducts in unexpected places. Either Jessica Alba knew the risks of wearing a skirt in New York City and decided to take the chance, or she was genuinely surprised by the strong winds that whip up in the streets.
It’s good to know that even a huge star like Alba isn’t immune to New York’s numerous warm welcomes, and this is just one example. Tourists have often talked about how the metropolitan monster gave them their initial “welcome to New York” experience.
Bad Hair Day for Britney Spears
Having gone from being a teen idol to a troubled superstar with legal and familial problems and more, the renowned pop performer is now notorious for her struggles with mental health, artistic freedom, literal freedom, and the many challenges women face in the music industry.
If it’s Britney Spears, you know to expect the most ostentatious display possible. While her hair may look horrible in this picture, Britney is probably just having one of those bad hair days like everyone else. That’s inevitable in this human experience.
Lindsay Lohan On The Ground
The only thing more well-known than Lindsay Lohan’s phenomenal acting career is the trouble she’s had in her personal life. Many saw Lohan as an example of the problematic and dual nature of childhood fame, which led to rehab.
It’s no secret that Lohan was famous for her wild antics on the dance floor, and this photo captures her in the midst of one. Who among us hasn’t been so drunk they couldn’t remember what happened the night before? It’s the same, except that the media wasn’t watching us.
Khloe Kardashian is Swept Away by the Wind
The Kardashians’ lives are as interesting as they are scrutinized. We can’t even begin to fathom what it’s like to have every moment of your life constantly documented and shared with the world. They never seem to get a break – it’s difficult enough dealing with the media as a regular star. But to be constantly in the public eye?
Honestly, it sounds challenging. That’s probably simply how the Kardashians live. The problem with making your life public fodder is that it exposes you to scrutiny, even in less pleasant moments. This photograph perfectly illustrates the point.
Maria Carey Choosing the Quicker Route Down the Stairs
Mariah Carey, an international pop star, is known for her penchant for towering heels. This kind of accident, then, shouldn’t really be that shocking. Wearing those ridiculously high heels guarantees that you will fall on even the most miniature of stairs you encounter.
It’s the cost of keeping up with the latest trends. It also didn’t help that when she stumbled, a wind shift whirled her sarong dress around. Just when she thought things couldn’t get any more humiliating. Poor lady!
The Late Night Theatrics of Paris Hilton Are Destined to Become Legend
When you wake up sometime in the early 2000s, after making yourself a cup of coffee, you sit down with the morning paper. Who is the main figure in the latest headlines? It’s the one and only Paris Hilton. Once again, she has become the center of controversy.
Hilton appeared to have a knack for getting in trouble. This picture of her after a few drinks is perfect evidence of that. She always managed to throw a great party. But the spirit of the party always seemed to possess her eventually, leading to photos like this.
A “Wet Floor” Sign Really Ought to Have Been Placed
Penelope Cruz is a popular and well-known Spanish actress in the United States. Since she first appeared in Hollywood in the 1990s, she has been in nearly every major motion picture. However, on the set of her 2012 film, The Counselor, she genuinely put on a performance for the paparazzi they would never forget.
Cruz fell down, and everyone freaked out. The Spanish actress fell at an awkward angle that revealed her private parts. Fortunately, her injuries weren’t too severe, and she saw the filming of the movie through to the end.
Meghan Markle Is Human, Afterall
There aren’t many photos of Meghan Markle that show her looking or behaving imperfectly. It’s just that she’s one of those folks who always seem to look much more put-together than the rest of us. It’s over as of today. We think Meghan was probably overheating wherever she was in this photo.
However, her sweet expression says it all. She isn’t very bothered by it. Perhaps it’s because she’s entirely at ease in her own skin that she always manages to look so put together. Everyone sweats—it’s a human thing.
Pete Wentz Of Fall Down Boy
The band’s name now has an entirely new meaning. Pete Wentz is, in a word, Fallout Boy. The photo depicts bassist and songwriter Wentz in a less-than-ideal predicament, with his back splayed out on the ground and his clothes in a messy heap.
Was his attention diverted by his phone, maybe, when he tripped and fell? Perhaps it was the obtrusive sunglasses. It could have been the emo bangs he was rocking, though. One thing we know for sure is a relief that he avoided injury. Ultimately, we’ll need him to pen some more gloomy radio hits.
Vince Vaughn, the Gelato Gladiator
Vince Vaughn has had a great acting career, having portrayed various iconic characters over the years. However, it appears that his actual calling in life was to play the most critically-acclaimed character of all: the king of ice cream, the Gelato Gladiator.
Look at him tearing into that softie. We’re familiar with the old adage, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.” Indeed, this image has us yelling out loud. You might say that Vince has become “i-cone-ic” in his own right. Get it?
Ashley Benson Appears to Enjoy the Trip Down
Your feet’s comfort is one of the many sacrifices that must be made to maintain the celebrity lifestyle. Celebrities, by all accounts, are expected to wear heels to all formal events. A minor incident is more likely to occur when you wear these deadly contraptions.
Ashley Benson experienced this personally, although we’re not sure she was even wearing high heels. This picture is all the more intriguing for this fact. She simply couldn’t place the blame on her footwear. There is no one else to blame for her fall except her. Perhaps the ground, too.
Pamela Anderson’s Hair Day
Pamela Anderson has an air of grandeur about her. Indeed, from the 1980s to the early 2000s, she was a fixture in the public eye. Because of this, it is comforting to know that she is not a force of nature, but a human since a true force of nature (the wind, to be exact) has shown her who runs the show here.
Nature strikes once again! When Pamela left her Dublin hotel, she was quickly humbled by the windy conditions typical of Irish weather. Finally, we understand why the people of Ireland are so resilient.
Another Of Britney Spears’ Unlucky Mishap
It’s no secret that Britney Spears has led an interesting and challenging existence, but that’s old news by now. That being said, this paparazzi nonetheless managed to snap a photo of Britney in a really awkward situation. At the very least, we’re hoping the sports drink was refreshing.
Even if it isn’t immediately obvious, fame does have its drawbacks. This photo of Britney Spears’s accident, which has been widely circulated in the media, is evidence of that. Poor woman—she was going through a traumatic time, and it seems that human beings are always hungry to feed off the suffering of others.
What a Tough Call for Paula Abdul
Everybody has to deal with challenging issues at some point in our lives, and perhaps Paula Abdul’s predicament might teach us how to approach our own difficulties. Abdul had to decide whether to hold down her skirt or her hair in this less-than-ideal conundrum.
So, Abdul decided just to hold her skirt down. To us, it seems like she picked the best option available at the time. Unkempt hair isn’t that big of a deal compared to a raised skirt. The paparazzi and media circus will eat you alive—presumably to sate the demonic blood crops.
Madonna is one of the most vocal and controversial people in mainstream music, yet she also remains mysterious to many. One thing we do know about her, though, is that Madonna is pizza crazy. There is no doubt about that. Look at how quickly she devoured that tasty treat!
You can learn something from this: no one is too famous for enjoying a decent pizza. There’s one thing we don’t like about this pizza, though—more cheese is required. We understand that the cheese was presumably devoured by Madonna seconds earlier, but please, it’s looking a little dry!
Peaches Geldof, daughter of musician Bob Geldof, had quite the career by her mid-twenties. She was already a successful model and TV host. Did we leave out the fact that she was also a mother? She looks like she’s having a hard time balancing her baby stroller and what we can only assume is an important business call in this snapshot.
Given her unfortunate and premature death at the age of twenty-five, the shot feels bittersweet. That she was loved and will be remembered by many should be a source of comfort, but life is full of these cruel and meaningless tragedies. What can you do but look on and scroll?
Fergie’s Awkward Live Performance
Fergie was recognized for her exuberant, vibrant, boisterous, and in-your-face demeanor in the Black Eyed Peas and her solo career. But she may have been too enthusiastic, judging by the grayish patch between her legs. Fergie says, “We were late for stage, driving down the freeway; it’s Friday traffic…”
“When we finally make it to the stage, the show must begin… When we play “Let’s Get It Started,” I go completely insane and start running and jumping all over the stage. My adrenaline was pumping, and I really, really hoped it didn’t have to happen. That was the most mortifying thing that could have happened!”
Jessica Simpson’s Balance Mistake
Since she began her glitzy acting career, Jessica Simpson has amassed a large fan base. No one should be surprised by this. After all, she has other talents besides acting, singing, and dancing. Her abilities were limited, however, by a lack of balance at her husband’s birthday celebration.
This photo from Jessica Simpson’s husband Eric Johnson’s birthday celebration at Craig’s Restaurant in 2017 show’s her unexpected drop-off. Fortunately, Mr. Johnson was courteous enough to assist Jessica in getting to her car afterward.
Is Nicole Richie Spiderwoman?
Nicole Richie is a well-known television personality, fashion icon, and designer. Her father is the legendary Lionel Richie. But we wouldn’t blame you if you mistook her for a crime-fighting vigilante with the way she’s striking that fantastic position.
The only question that remains unanswered is her superhero name and the backstory of how she became a superhero. However, we should definitely delegate that responsibility to Nicole. After all, she’s the only one who can determine her own future.
Alicia Arden’s Zipper Problems
While you may recognize Alicia Arden from her roles in films like Enemy Within and Trojan War, you probably won’t remember her choices regarding zippers. Arden seems to have paid the price for gambling on a faulty dress, as she was forced to repair the zipper on her back in full daylight.
Still, we have to admit that she looks stunning in her blue dress, there is no doubt about that. Alicia seems to have an excellent grasp of the art of zipping. Attempting to zip a back zipper without assistance is no small feat.
Blac Chyna’s Shorts Look Uncomfortable
To put it simply, Blac Chyna is one of those people who enjoys the finer things in life. Wherever she goes, she instantly becomes the center of attention. And that’s precisely why this image is so off-putting. The paparazzi must have known something was up on the day.
She simply wasn’t at her best. That much is clear. It’s hard to blame her. Being glamorous takes effort. We’re sure she didn’t care about this shot, and her next performance was just as dramatic and spectacular as all her others.
Awkward Pants on Patricia Arquette
Patricia Arquette’s career has flourished since her first major appearance in Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors in 1987. She has been a permanent fixture on the Hollywood scene ever since. What doesn’t look to have been a permanent fixture are those pants around her waist.
With everything she has going on, it’s understandable that she might make a few mistakes now and then. However, it seems that Patricia was either too preoccupied or too immersed in her world to remember to button up that day. We can’t blame her; she’s had a lot on her plate.
Salma Hayek Takes a Staircase Ride
Young children frequently trip and fall, even on short flights of stairs. We can’t pinpoint a specific cause, but it’s well documented. That’s what makes this photo so remarkable; it’s not Salma’s cute kid dragging her down the stairs, but the other way around.
The Mexican star, while carrying her child, fell down the steps. Salma clearly tried to improve her less-than-ideal circumstances by clutching the door hinge for support. Sadly, there seemed to have been no other assistance. Fortunately, nobody was harmed.
Kanye West Steals the Show Once Again
Kanye West is well-known for more than just his evident musical talent; he is also recognized for not being afraid to say what’s on his mind, even if it means provoking controversy or drawing unwanted attention. Kanye didn’t say anything negative, but his wardrobe mishap stole the show from Kim.
One thing that bothers us about this picture is that Kanye clearly did not feel the wind on his thigh. Can someone be immune to the cold? How did his pants get so low down in the first place? It’s a question that might never be answered.
Robin Thicke’s Restless Partying
If you don’t disrespect any of the ladies you meet and aren’t married to actress Paula Patton, you’re free to enjoy yourself at parties and flirt with as many girls as you like. We can only speculate on the look of disbelief on his wife’s face when she saw the 2013 photo of the musician embracing a young woman in a New York City club.
What, you might ask, is wrong with taking a photo with a different woman? If you look down and gaze in the mirror behind Robin and his new girlfriend, you might find that the answer practically reaches out and grabs you—metaphorically speaking.
Adam Sandler’s Wardrobe Mishap Is Not Unusual
Adam Sandler is well known for his extraordinary comic abilities. He also occasionally turns out amazing, moving, and dramatic performances, as he did in Uncut Gems. However, based on the way he’s responding to someone pointing out the open zipper—with a sarcastic grin—it seems his true passion for life is comedy.
It’s just another legendary comedy moment from the star. These kinds of quips have made Adam Sandler the recognizable figure he is today, both on and off the screen. We all adore him just for being him. So, Adam, stay true to yourself!
Jay Z and Beyoncé’s High Five
Back in 2016, the power couple Beyoncé and Jay Z decided to travel to Wimbledon in order to show their support for their good friend Serena Williams. It appears from most of the photographs taken and uploaded on Jazzy’s website that the pair had a good time at their event.
They were conversing with one another, smiling, and, most importantly, having fun while watching the game. On the other hand, at one point, Jay Z attempted to get a high five from his wife, but tragically, he was left hanging.
Kim K. Has a Sweet Tooth
Okay, this one isn’t so bad. She looks like she’s just enjoying herself. When Kim was holding her Vegas Magazine Cover Party in 2008, she couldn’t resist posing for a picture with a sweet treat in her mouth, and she couldn’t help but smile for the camera.
When she looks at the picture now, we wonder if she wishes she could delete it from the internet archieves. It’s a little awkward, but at least she looks like she was having fun. Plus it was taken 14 years ago, so we can probably let her off the hook.
