People on Reddit are calling out the celebrities they suspect are faking their entire personalities for the camera — some for good reasons, some for bad. And while we can't verify any of these, they're fascinating to think about.
Here are some of the top-voted answers from users:
1."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.'"
2."Paris Hilton. She's not nearly as air-headed as she pretends to be."
3."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."
4."Almost all heavy metal rockers are anything but moody devil worshippers. It's always been hilarious to me that in reality, Alice Cooper is a soft-spoken Christian."
5."Kid Rock and Larry the Cable Guy are pretending to be white trash hillbillies when they are actually rich rednecks."
6."Jimmy Fallon laughs like he has a sniper pointed at him at all times set to fire when he doesn’t laugh dramatically."
7."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]."
8."Old skool here: Marilyn Monroe. She acted like a ditzy blonde, but behind the scenes she was hella smart and something of a literary buff (one reason she was attracted to Arthur Miller)."
9."The vast majority of country music stars are not 'country' in any sense of the word. Most came from rich families."
10."The Rock seems too good to be true to me, but I have nothing to hang it on other than a gut feeling."
11."Benedict Cumberbatch. He carefully avoids having any discerning personality, and we know next to nothing about him. Takes talent. Good on you, BC."
12."Hilaria Baldwin is a pretty obvious one, if she even counts as a celeb."
13."J.Lo. Something tells me she isn't at all like her persona."
14."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."
15."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."
16."Ariana Grande. She's just playing a character in public. I bet she's not even slightly the same person at home."
17."Jennifer Lawerence. I don't know why, but I’ve always felt that her whole, 'I’m quirky and awkward because I like to eat food' thing was disingenuous."
18."Kanye. He's a very disciplined performer. I can't believe he's like that in real life."
19."Chris Pratt. I hate to say it, but since he and Anna Faris split, his new wife and his Instagram posts are just…weird."
20."Tucker Carlson knows 90% of what he peddles is bullshit. He's just a sociopathic grifter."
21."Ryan Reynolds. Something about him has always been 'off' to me."
22."Avril Lavigne. TBH, I’ve seen her in interviews, and videos of her goofing off with her band. She seems like a completely different person than when she’s onstage singing a song. Not in a bad way. She’s just a lot more goofy, inappropriate, fooling around, etc., while when she’s singing she seems completely serious."
23."Could be wrong about this. But I am starting to think that Joe 'The Bro Jesus' Rogan is actually an insecure little man."
