Celebrities are often so idealized by the media, that many people tend to forget they are just ordinary people made of flesh and bones like the rest of us. We don’t tend to think of celebrities as having awkward moments.

What can be forgotten is that behind all that, there are human beings with all their notorious deficiencies.

Which ones are genuine, and which are publicity stunts, we leave that to you.
