Celebrities are usually held to high scrutiny: they have to always look good, be charming, virtuous, talented, and presentable to the cameras. Hence their public image is near flawless—looking like a regular person would certainly cause a ruckus in the tabloid pages. Which is why being always exposed to stars somewhat annoys us, and we want to see a certain chink in their armor of public image.

A person that goes by the name of Planet Hiltron on social media provides us this guilty pleasure. Planet Hiltron photoshops celebrities to look like an average person: no thousand-dollar haircut, no jewelry and designer clothes, wearing less-than-perfect makeup, making bad style choices, and so on. It's hilariously called a "makeunder" that stands as the opposite of a makeover, where things are upgraded as they're changed.

Still cute! Almost more good looking because she looks more friendly. I would totally like to be friends with This girl!

The realities of being celebrity are nerve-wracking. I don't believe that being perfect is something that they want to be, but they're required to as a part of their profession. As perfect as they may look on camera, most of them probably just want to eat a cake, lay back and forget their obligations. And it's not that being a bit overweight, or dressing casualy is automatically associated with the people with "lesser status," on the contrary, it says something about unrealistic and inhumane expectations that celebrities have to uphold. Danny Evans, the creator of the page, gives us a glimpse of an alternative reality.

And because of this, we can see them as mere mortals, or enviously think what they would've looked like if they hadn't broke through into stardom. And as strange as it is, it's somewhat easier to imagine that they are more approachable, or could be someone that we may meet in our lives. It's a reminder that stars aren't that far away as the public image wants you think.

People had varying reactions in regards to this. Some see it as harmless entertainment—no celebrities were harmed in the making of these photos—while others have, perhaps accurately, noted that being fat, or out of shape, having bad makeup, and other details are unfairly associated with poor people.

Still gorgeus. Why do they just add kilos and think that would make them less gorgeous?
