As much as we like to cancel them whenever they take one wrong step, celebrities—be it movie stars, pop singers or iconic socialites—have some obligations most of us don’t. One of them being that they always have to look flawless, and as you can imagine, that takes a lot of effort.

Because most of us can’t even begin to imagine what individuals like Rihanna, Beyoncé or Kim Kardashian would look like were they ‘ordinary’ people, artist Planet Hiltron did the work for us using Photoshop—and the results are absolutely hilarious! Here’s what 23 of the world’s most well-known people would look like if they were never famous:

1. Scarlett Johansson

The world’s highest-paid actress both in 2018 and 2019, Johansson has been featured multiple times on the Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list. And for good reasons! Her films have grossed over $14.3 billion worldwide, making Johansson the ninth-highest-grossing box office star of all time. But what if the actress had never landed a role in the first place? Would she rock such a terrible haircut?

2. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

Stewart and Pattinson dated for nearly four years, from 2009 to 2012, before they broke up after Stewart cheated on her Twilight co-star with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

At the time, Stewart apologised for the “momentary indiscretion” that “jeopardised the most important thing” in her life, her relationship with Pattinson. Little did she know, she would now have to apologise again for this eye-watering image.

3. Jennifer Aniston

Aniston rose to international fame for her role as Rachel Green on the TV sitcom Friends. She has since played starring roles in numerous dramas, comedies and romantic comedies. Her biggest box office successes include Bruce Almighty, Marley & Me, Horrible Bosses and We’re the Millers, each of which grossed over $200 million in worldwide box office receipts.

The actress has also been included in numerous magazines’ list of the world’s most beautiful women. But what would they have said about this alternate version of Aniston?

Oh, and what about this one?

4. John Travolta

You know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words… Well, enough said here.

5. Gwyneth Paltrow

Let’s be honest, Paltrow is probably one of the only celebrities out there who seems to not have a single care about what people think of her. The Oscar-winning actress has previously entertained us with her, um, unique opinions on everything from vaginal steaming (a classic) to coining the phrase ‘conscious uncoupling’ when announcing her split with Chris Martin on her lifestyle site goop.

You do you, boo.

6. Britney Spears

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Now that she’s finally free, just let Britney be Britney, please.

7. Madonna

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Britney’s one thing, Madonna on the other hand… If you search ‘Madonna’ on Google, among the search engine’s ‘People also ask’ recommendations you’ll see the question: ‘What happened to Madonna the singer?’ and we’d like to have an answer too.

8. Lindsay Lohan

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Lohan is giving us Dolly Parton vibes in this image (though less perfect, duh) so we can’t think of anything mean to say really.

9. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Sadly, Pitt and Jolie aren’t together anymore so this lovely sight is something we’ll never be able to witness.

10. Sarah Jessica Parker

Of course Planet Hiltron imagined Parker as a horse enthusiast. Can you see the resemblance?

11. Jennifer Lopez

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Now that Lopez is officially back with Ben Affleck, we can split the beans. Did you know that the actor has a huge painting of both of them above his bed? And yes, they’re in their birthday suits.

12. Nicki Minaj

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

She looks the same to us. What changed?

13. David and Victoria Beckham

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

David and Victoria Beckham are one of Hollywood’s longest-standing couples for good reason: these two have been through the wringer together—but not as much as the two above though…

14. Nicole Kidman

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

To be honest, we would look like this too if we had been married to Tom Cruise for over a decade.

15. Beyoncé And Jay-Z

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

After over a year of friendship—and talking on the phone constantly—Beyoncé and Jay-Z decided to test out their relationship romantically in 2001. Their first official date was at celeb-favourite restaurant Nobu and according to more lyrics from Jay-Z’s ‘Everything Is Love’, the rapper brought a friend to dinner. In the song, he called that choice his “first foolish mistake.”

Where would have the couple gone had they not been famous?

16. Sharon Stone

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Known for primarily playing femme fatales and women of mystery on film and television, Stone became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 90s and is the recipient of various accolades. Well, well, well, how the tables have turned.

17. Rihanna

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Riri would definitely still slay as an everyday person.

18. Kourtney, Khloé and Kim Kardashian

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

We’re all thinking the same thing: this is what they would look like if they had never been able to afford all the plastic surgery procedures they’ve undergone.

19. Tom Cruise

Oh speaking of Tom Cruise, would you look at this. That’s what we call karma.

20. Johnny Depp

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Depp was raised in Florida. He dropped out of school when he was 15, and fronted a series of garage bands. When he married Lori Anne Allison, he took a job as a ballpoint-pen salesman to support the family. A visit to Los Angeles with his wife, however, happened to be a blessing in disguise, when he met up with actor Nicolas Cage, who advised him to turn to acting—which culminated in Depp’s film debut in the low-budget horror film, A Nightmare on Elm Street, where he played a teenager who falls prey to dream-stalking demon Freddy Krueger. Talk about luck, huh?

21. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

This image is already iconic, having circulated online for some years now. Who’s gonna tell Planet Hiltron we now need an updated version with Kim and Pete?

22. Paris Hilton

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

It’s simply impossible to picture Paris Hilton as anything but filthy rich.

23. Miley Cyrus

23 celebrities and what they would look like as ‘everyday people’

Last but not least, Miley Cyrus definitely looks like she’s embracing her country roots.
