If you’re looking for proof that it’s okay to be weird, look no further than these celebrities caught on camera at rather strange moments. Some of them are just generally getting down and expressing themselves, you know? Others were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. All of it just makes them seem much more real.
Plenty of these stars champion the message that you should be yourself in the first place—Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, especially—so their goofy moments seem even more authentic.
Read on for photos of our favorite stars looking silly.
14. George Clooney
He’s known for making funny faces at interviews, though. Don’t believe it? Just ask Google.
13. Selena’s Eyes
Gomez has shared her love of desserts in photos posted with Taylor Swift. As of November 2016, Gomez is the most-followed Instagram user in the world.
12. Sofía Vergara
Here’s Sofía Vergara making a weird face… and still looking relatively attractive. Vergara rose to prominence in the late 1990s, when she co-hosted two TV shows for Spanish-language network Univisión.
In 2012, 2013, and 2016, she was the top-earning actress on U.S. television.
11. Jim Carrey In A One-Piece
Back in 2008—right after Borat was released—he tried on then-girlfriend Jenny McCarthy’s bathing suit and they took a long walk along the beach.
There’s just nothing wrong with this photo. It’s Jim Carrey, after all, and he’s showing less skin than Borat.
10. Betty White
White is known for her Emmy Award-winning roles on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls.
9. Nicki’s Turkey Leg
Minaj performed for fans in Central Park, where she wore a massively teased platinum blonde wig and hot pink accessories. She took a bite out of this turkey leg during the performance and tossed it to the side.
8. Matthew McConaughey and Morgan Freeman
This 2010 photo shows Matthew and Morgan sharing a rather special moment after leaving Da Giacomo, a restaurant in Milan, Italy. They were in town for Milan Fashion Week, where they both attended the Dolce & Gabbana menswear show.
Checking out their special moment was Camila Alves, who married McConaughey in Texas just two years later.
7. Jessie J
She started her career with a songwriting deal at Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where she wrote for artists including Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus.
6. Jude Law
Jude has five children with three different mothers and lives in a London mansion. Fun fact: Neighbors recently called the police on him with a noise complaint after hearing “blaring music” that was on par with that of a “festival” until 2 a.m.
5. Amber Tamblyn
Here’s a barely passable wink from actress, author, and director Amber Tamblyn. The 33-year-old star is well known for her roles in movies including The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The Grudge 2, The Ring, and 127 Hours.
No worries, Amber. Not everyone can wink and have it look awesome.
4. Bill Murray
Here’s a good and weird one. Famed comedian, actor, and writer Bill Murray is seen here in this photo on the golf course with a friend. He may not have been checking out his pal’s back end, but let’s pretend that he is.
Murray is known for his love of golf—he even partnered with The Chive to create a line of golf apparel for both men and women.
3. Rose McGowan
What you can’t see in this photo is the medical ankle boot she has on one foot. She reportedly injured her foot while she was out on a quad bike.
2. Tyra Banks
Is there such a thing as a bad photo of Tyra Banks? This former model, actress, businesswoman, television star, philanthropist, and occasional singer had a net worth of $90 million in 2011. She’s also taught a course in personal branding at Stanford University.
The next photo is probably the best one here, though.
1. Katy Perry Falling Into A Cake
This photo only shows half of the story. Katy Perry actually meant to dive into this cake while performing at MTV’s Latin America Awards in Guadalajara, Mexico. It’s what happened next that she didn’t prepare for.
After she’d jumped onto the giant dessert, Perry was making her way across the stage when she had a rather terrible fall. She slipped in icing and almost took one of her bandmates down with her.
Smartphones and social media have made it beyond easy to capture and share these moments with the world. In fact, 64% of Americans now own a smartphone, and that’s up from 58% in early 2014.
The most followed celebrities on Twitter and Instagram include Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift. Meanwhile, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, and Kim Kardashian dominate Instagram.
From Jim Carrey in a swimsuit to Katy Perry diving into a cake, you’ve got to appreciate the people who captured these images with their cameras, and the social networks that work to bring you these weird moments.
