People Are Sharing The Celebrities That Are Entirely Different In Their Private Life (30 Answers)

Celebrities entertain us for a living, so it’s no surprise that much of what the public might perceive as their “personality” is carefully cultivated and presented to us in order to, well, entertain.

And that cultivation seems to run the gamut. From smart actors printing to be dumb, to mean comedians pretending to be nice, or vice versa, when your primary job is to be a brand, it’s easy for even the most hardcore fans to never know the real you.

Recently u/0belisktheT asked a question that gets to the heart of public vs. private personalities of celebs:

Which celebrities do you think are faking their whole personality?

Now, some of these are hearsay or just conjecture, but you can easily see how they could be true, right?

Anyway, here were our favorite answers:

1. Gordon Ramsay


Gordon Ramsay…. I curse worse when I run a kitchen and it’s all an act… he’s retained like 85% of his staff for more than 15 years I’ve read… if he was really an a-hole they’d leave


2. Julie Andrews


Julie Andrews aka Mary Poppins. A family member worked with her very closely on a few productions. She’s tough as nails, way smarter than she leads on, and has the mouth of a truck driver.


3. Alice Cooper


Almost all heavy metal rockers are anything but moody devil worshipers. It’s always been hilarious to me that in reality, Alice Cooper is a soft-spoken Christian.


4. Marilyn Monroe

Old skool here: Marilyn Monroe.

She acted like a ditzy blond but behind the scenes she was hella smart and something of a literary buff (one reason she was attracted to Arthur Miller).


5. Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch. He carefully avoids having any discerning personality, and we know next to nothing about him.

Takes talent. Good on you, BC


6. Pitbull

Worked at a hotel and met Pitbull. Really polite guy and seemed humble. His whole crew got big a** rooms with the best available accommodations. Pitbull got a small single queen and he basically cleaned his own room before he left. The girl that was him was anything but basic


7. Mariah Carey


Mariah Carey

She gets away with being a diva because people love it when she “slays” people but she’s actually a huge b**ch. She’s constantly bringing down other women in the music industry, and people hate working with her because her demands are too high.


8. Rammstein

Rammstein. They look like they beat up old grannie for fun, but they are a wholesome bunch.


9. Julia Roberts


Julia Roberts! I worked on a photoshoot with her and all I gotta say is wow…from the moment she showed up to the moment she left, screaming at everyone about everything. An absolute b**ch to the nicest people who didn’t do anything to deserve it. Apparently, that is how she always behaves when there are no cameras on her. Lost every ounce of respect I had for her after that day.


10. Paris Hilton


Paris Hilton, she’s not nearly as airheaded as she pretends to be


11. Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson knows 90 percent of what he peddles is bulls**t. He’s just a sociopathic grifter.


12. Bono

Bono pretends to care about less fortunate people and he was named in the Panama Papers list of tax cheats. Hypocritical piece of s**t. Wyclef Jean’s Haiti charity was a scam too, his AMA was a hilarious disaster. Heard that Ellen Degeneres isn’t as nice as she is on tv.


13. BTS, et. al.

All the big kpop bands. They’re so overworked. There have been so many occasions where they collapse on stage from exhaustion. They basically sign their whole life away to a company at such a young age, often becoming trainees at age 13. And yet they manage to keep their public image so polished and perfect, with none of the behind the scenes explicitly on show.


14. Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon laughs like he has a sniper pointed at him at all times set to fire when he doesn’t laugh dramatically


15. Adam Levine

Adam Levine, a few years ago he had an act in Latin America’s biggest music festival “Festival de Viña del Mar” in Chile, he was a massive a**hole, he asked the whole staff to not look at him in the eyes, instead made people turn around and look at the walls whenever he was walking, also he looked like he was hating to sing there as he had an angry expression all the time, his clothes were all dirty and his act was TERRIBLE (also he was like an hour late), the singing and everything he did on the scenario showed how much he hates to be there after like a 30 minutes show he stormed out and insulted everybody and the city itself. This festival is well known worldwide and there are an estimated 50 million people watching the show on TV and online, so everyone watched him being and a**hole and there was news about it around the world, so at the end, he recorded himself saying sorry and stuff.


16. Kevin Hart

Kevin Hart. If you watch that documentary about him, you see the mask slip a little when he loses the “everybody’s BFF” persona for a minute and is a REAL scumbag to one of his boys going on a completely unprovoked tirade about how “without ME, you’re NOTHING”


17. Ke$ha


Kesha. Her rapey boss made her act like a trashy junkie to sell more albums. She actually is not like that but a religious person.


18. Bruce Willis

I’m friends with someone who worked on a set with Bruce Willis. An intern at one point went up to him and told him how much he loved and appreciated his work. Bruce smiled and said thank you, and as soon as the intern walked away went to the guy’s manager and proclaimed he would leave set if the intern wasn’t fired immediately. The kid was fired and its pretty f**ked considering how much time and work he probably put in just to get to that point


19. Ellen DeGeneres

I don’t know why but I feel Ellen DeGeneres fakes her personality. Just look at her episode with the actress from 50 shades [Dakota Johnson].


20. Samuel L. Jackson

You don’t fake a personality, you have a persona which is a separate contextual appearance of your personality. The same way you might act differently in front of your colleagues vs your friends vs your family, some celebrities might have different behaviours that they put on to suit the version of themselves that relate to their public career.

That being said Samuel L. Jackson had so much success with some of the characteristics of his earlier roles that he constructed them very successfully into his entire career persona.


21. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence isn’t actually a party girl that drinks. She is a super put-together actress pretending to be relatable.


22. YouTube stars (generally)

Any of those YouTubers who are geared towards kids. If they were half as happy as they act, their eyes wouldn’t look so dead


23. The Kardashians

The Kardashians.

Their entire on screen persona is carefully crafted by Kris Jenner.


24. Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise if brainwashing counts


25. Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt.

I hate to say it but since he and Anna Faris split, his new wife and his Instagram posts are just…weird.


26. Joe Rogan

Could be wrong about this. But I am starting to think that Joe *the bro Jesus” Rogan is actually an insecure little man.


27. Catherine Zeta-Jones

I know for a fact that Cetherine Zeta Jones is a b**ch who treats regular people like complete s**t IRL. I used to work at Mandalay Bay in 2002 and she expected you to wait hand and foot on her and then zero tip for anything you did. Oversight is one thing as we understand that it happens with celebrities, but not to this extent.

Jeremy Piven is also a MAJOR A**HOLE IRL. When I was working at a cafe in Brentwood back in 2005 he was notorious for being a d**k to all the waitresses there. So much so that he had to be removed on more than one occasion.


28. Demi Lovato


Demi Lovato. I believed it after their overdose but the second documentary promoting an album, coming out as NB, the selective outrage…it just feels like they are desperate to stay in the headlines and stay relevant. They have such a stunningly beautiful voice and are so talented! I wish they felt like they could just relax and be themself. I used to really like them but now I just feel sad for them.


29. Jared Leto

Jared Leto. I used to be a huge fan of his band (30 Seconds to Mars) back in the day. He seemed pretty genuine and passionate about art and activism, based on old interviews I had seen. As time has gone on, he seems really self-serving and egotistic, like he sees himself as some profound artist who is changing the world.


30. Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway, but I guess it doesn’t count if she’s been recorded being a prick to her staff behind the scenes. In Japan, she was voted worst celebrity to work with lol
