30 Times Stars Were Not Just Like Us

We've heard tales of celebrities picking up their own dry-cleaning and making Target runs. And, who knows, maybe some of them really do. But, if you think "stars are just like us," well, you're wrong.
Last time we checked, shutting down the Louvre, painting all over designer handbags, and having assistants squeeze you into your shoes were luxuries only the rich and famous could afford. We travel economy class with peanuts; they have private jets, helicopters, monogrammed luggage, and all the in-flight snacks you could ever ask for. Don't even get us started on the yachts.

We're not hating. We're just telling it like it is. If these Instagram snaps prove anything, it's that stars are not just like us. And, that's okay.
