The title of this article isn’t entirely accurate, because in some ways, it’s actually nice to be reminded that celebrities, who try so hard to be perfect, have their bad moments, too. People like Cameron Diaz and Beyoncé have more money than the vast majority of the world. They can afford personal trainers, fancy diets, at-home gyms, and all the clothing and jewelry they could ever want. And yet, they don’t look perfect 100% of the time (except for Penélope Cruz—she actually does always look perfect). It’s comforting!
Celebrities are followed around 24/7, so it comes as no surprise that sometimes they are caught at bad angles. The following are some of the most awkward celebrity photos.
It’s impossible not to poke fun at this hilarious picture of Calista Flockhart, the actress best known for playing the leading role in the television comedy Ally McBeal. In this picture she is speaking at the 9th annual Operation Smile gala in 2010, but let’s not forget that she was serving a good cause.
Operation Smile offers free surgeries to children with facial deformities like cleft palates. The motivation for these surgeries isn’t just aesthetic; according to the Operation Smile website, cleft palates and lips make it difficult for children to eat and speak, and may even lower their life chances.
Besides, on a much more superficial note, Calista’s dress is beautiful. So go Calista, even though this picture is funny!
