Photos that show celebrities in their natural setting are hard to come by. However some rare shots manage to capture another side of their celebrity lifestyle. Whether for better or for worse, these shots shows that we are all the same.

There are mountains of photos of celebrities. Many (often photoshopped) appear on the cover of glossy magazines after long photo shoots which capture their best angle in beautiful clothing. However there are also some rare photos that are often ignored. Here are 15 shots that show the human side of celebrity life that you’ll never have seen before.
