Here Are 10 Celebrities Who Are Totally Different Behind The Scenes

A redditor started the discussion on which celebrities might be “faking their entire personality.”

People love to love celebrities. People love to hate celebrities. But how much of them do we truly get to see on-screen? Is it a persona, or is it who they truly are? Redditor u/0belisktheT, stirred up quite a discussion after asking people  which celebrities might be "faking their entire personality." Entertainment, pop culture, lifestyle, and celebrity expert Mike Sington shared with Bored Panda how you can tell if a star is being authentic. 

"You have to be quite a detective to figure out if a celebrity is being genuine," he said. "Even with cross-referencing social media with media appearances, with what their friends and other celebrities say about them, you may never figure it out. Some are actually that good at creating an image. And along with their team, it becomes an actual business. Even with all that, slip-ups occur. Watch for the celebrity apology, which is almost a certain sign that something genuine occurred."

The expert also dropped a couple of truth bombs, saying, "I'm going to be brutally honest. I think people who are genuine and nice themselves are more drawn to celebrities who are genuine and nice, and people who revel in drama are more drawn to the celebrities who are always involved in drama."

So here's a list of celebrities who may not be quite like they appear on the screen based on the Reddit discussion.

1. Julie Andrews

Redditor fulthrottlejazzhands shared: Julie Andrews aka Merry 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.


2. Gordon Ramsay

Redditor tweezer606060 shared: 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.


3. Alice Cooper 

Redditor drygnfyre shared: 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. Benedict Cumberbatch

Redditor Ok_Sheepherder_8313  shared: He carefully avoids having any discerning personality, and we know next to nothing about him. Takes talent. Good on you, BC.


5. Julia Roberts

One Redditor shared: 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.


6. BTS

Redditor adagiosis pointed out: Allll 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.


7. Jennifer Lawrence

ItsColeOnReddit noted: Jennifer Lawrence isn't actually a party girl that drinks. She is a super put together actress pretending to be relatable.


8. Tom Cruise

Much_Committee_9355  said: Tom Cruise if brainwashing counts


9. The Kardashians

UnluckyObserver_1  shared: The Kardashians. Their entire on-screen persona is carefully crafted by Kris Jenner.


10. Samuel L. Jackson

ThearchOfStories explained: You don't fake a personality, you have a persona which is a separate contextual appearance of your personality. Same way you might act different 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.
