Really Ugly Celebrity Photos to Make Yourself Feel Pretty


madonnaWe've all had bad days -- days where we roll out of bed, skip the shower, throw on some sweats, and run a few errands. And if anyone were to photograph us doing so, we'd look horrendous no matter how breathtakingly beautiful we might actually be. Celebrities, despite what most evidence points to, also have bad hair/face/makeup/clothes days just like us. Even when they're on the red carpet all glammed up, a less than flattering photo is but a camera flash away.

Here are five gorgeous, goddess-like stars who were captured on film at just the wrong moment. They are some of the most beautiful people on the planet, but not in these pictures.

Believe it or not, that's Madonna up there in the hat. Even she, one of the most famous people ever, can be caught off-guard looking a little rough. Can't blame her though -- it's exhausting being a working mother/pop star.

jennifer aniston
Jennifer Aniston
Jen's fallen victim here to some bad lighting and a bad camera angle. No one looks good photographed from below looking up. We know she's flawless, but this horrible pic of her makes her look puffy and washed out.

angelina jolie
Angelina Jolie
Angie is arguably the hottest person in the universe, but this photo does not do her any justice whatsoever. Her hair looks a bit dry and damaged, she's got a crazy look in her eyes, and she's been caught wearing way too much powder.

lindsay lohan
Lindsay Lohan
Ms. Lohan's teeth were brown and brittle in this photo, but the young starlet had them fixed up right afterward. This photo captures her at a low point, no doubt about it

britney spears
Britney Spears
This pic of Brit Brit is maybe one of the worst ones ever taken of her. Her thong's showing on her upper thigh, her chin's blending with her neck, and her eyes look dead. Oof. We know she's going to be a beautiful bride, though. Congrats to her and Jason!

If I'm telling the truth, these five women look better on their worse days than half of us do on our best days. That said, it's nice to know we're not alone when it comes to taking horrendous pictures.

What's your strategy for taking a good picture?

this article is written in incredibly bad taste.

No one would care wtf these celebrities look like without makeup if media outlets would STOP pointing them out.

Hmmm...I thought the photos would be worse. Jennifer Aniston looks pretty good to me!

lovey... loveyoualready

They look fine to me. With th exception of Lindsay L.......if she kept her hair natural and didnt do whatever she did to her lips she would be fine. Who cares how people look? Truth be told, a lot of people do but the more attention we put on it the more we create a shallow ideals. And also, if this is what looking bad looks like I have a feeling us real folk now feel pretty awful about ourselves because I have looked frightening before and these photos dont compare.

Madonna is not attractive with make up on, Much less without!

Gosh, if this the worst pics that could be found of these 4...well, that is pretty sad. They all still look great.  Lindsey's teeth are brown and brittle?  How was that determined?

Is this really what people need to see to make themselves feel better??

You're kidding me right? What kind of sad person are you in that you have to bash others appearance to make yourself feel pretty? The phrase that comes to mind when reading this is, "misery loves company." How is this supposed to make any woman in society today feel better? If you're picking these women apart so viciously what are you thinking about regular women? This will only make women more insecure about being judged in public.

Stacey. Stacey.

They actually look normal and not like plastic barbie dolls. I see nothing wrong with any of these photos, I was expecting like makeup mishaps or something. This article is sad.

And "smartANDsexy" might as well have a photo of your vag on here, clothes please?
