Us Weekly magazine has a feature that I enjoy called “Celebrities: They’re Just Like Us!” where you can enjoy pictures of Jon Hamm grocery shopping or Kim Kardashian leaving the gym. You may even spot Sandra Bullock at Disney World with her adorable son. I love this part of the magazine, but here’s the thing: celebrities are NOT just like us. At all. In fact, they may actually be their own super-human species.
Why are celebrities not like us?
This is what Kim Kardashian wears to the airpot
I’m currently typing this post at JFK airport, where I have a four-hour layover. Except instead of wearing a full face of makeup, $600 shoes, leather-y pants, a blazer, and an on-trend top knot, I’m wearing yoga pants, a plain purple t-shirt, super old moccasins that are basically falling apart, and a banana clip in my hair that’s straight out of 1995. I also look exhausted and am a little sweaty. I never look like this when I travel. Celebrities they’re NOT just like us.
Behold, Duchess Catherine at the grocery store.
Not only would I never have anyone photographing me at the grocery store, but I NEVER look this put together. When I go to the grocery store, I’m usually running people over with my cart, and trying to fit a week’s worth of groceries into a small cart because I can’t steer the big ones. I’m also wearing a massive parka and trying to find the coconut water even though I go to this store three times a week. Royals they’re NOT just like us!
Need another example? Take a look at Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher courtside at, presumably, a Lakers’ game.
Did you think you were going to catch her in the nosebleeds wearing an oversized jersey and an unflattering hat? Or perhaps a visor? Think again. Celebs: they’re just like us! Except with courtside seats!
Also, ever notice how celebrities are out in L.A. during the summer wearing jeans? Do these people not sweat? It must be part of their altered genetic code.
Celebrities, they’re like you, if you had your own trainer who travels with you, makeup artist, and wardrobe that costs more than most people make in a year.
*UPDATE* Jennifer Lawrence is the exception to this rule, because she’s insanely normal and human and awesome. And she fell at the Oscars, which is obviously exactly what I would do, but she still made it cute. I love her so much. Okay, that’s all
