Celebrities always look amazing on the red carpet, and it’s no wonder really – they have a team of people looking after all of their beauty needs. So sometimes it’s refreshing to have a look at photos of A-list celebrities when they’re not looking so hot, just to remind us that they’re human beings too!

In the article below, we’ve brought you over 40 ugly photographs of celebrities who are normally ridiculously good-looking. Some of the transformations will shock you…

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

7. Jennifer Lawrence Hot

Jennifer Lawrence is an Oscar-winning actress who has the looks to go with her acting ability.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

9. Angelina Jolie Hot

Angelina Jolie used to be considered one of the sexiest actresses in the world.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

11. Katy Perry Hot

Katy Perry normally scrubs up very well indeed.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

17. Jennifer Lopez Hot

Jennifer Lopez looks amazing with or without make-up on.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

25. Kristen Stewart Hot

Kristen Stewart scrubs up well on the red carpet.

26. Kristen Stewart Not

Away from the spotlight though, she prefers a grungy look which isn’t to everybody’s taste.
