Whether you happen to be an average Joe off the street or an A-list celebrity in Hollywood, sooner or later we all make mistakes. Unfortunately, some of those mistakes are much more costly than others.

One common practice among miscreant youth and misinformed adults is shoplifting. Have a look below and check out these 15 celebrities who all got caught with sticky fingers.

Lynn Anderson was accused of lifting a 'Harry Potter' DVD in Taos, NM.

I hope that it was at least Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Otherwise, what was the point? Supposedly, the country singer also punched a police officer who was trying to put her into a patrol car.

Tila Tequila stole food and a pack of gum from a CVS store in 2010.

The worst part about it is that for some reason, Tila decided to get the whole thing on tape. Probably not the smartest move, in hindsight.

Stephanie Pratt once stole $1300 worth of items from Neiman Marcus.

When looting began in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, Stephanie took to Twitter and said "Shoot the looters." Ironic, considering her checkered past when it comes to theft.

Before her singing career took flight, Kesha used to steal food out of necessity.

"One of my first memories was of my mother saying, 'If you want something at Target, you have to take it," Kesha said during an interview with The Guardian.

Amanda Bynes was accused of stealing a $200 hat from Barney's.

Sadly, this was the tipping point in Amanda's downward spiral regarding her mental health and issues with substance abuse. Thankfully, she seems to be doing much better now that she's making her mental well-being a priority.

Britney Spears was accused of stealing a wig from a mannequin's head while she was inside the Hustler store.

The early '00s were a troubling time for the Queen of Pop, to say the least. After getting into an altercation with the staff, Spears allegedly snatched the wig and ran out of the store.

Kristin Cavallari was arrested for allegedly stealing from Tawny Kitaen’s Orange County store.

The star of Laguna Beach and Very Cavallari not only used to shoplift but she was also arrested in her younger years after stealing her brother's car and smoking pot.

In the '70s, Farrah Fawcett was arrested on two separate occasions for stealing from boutique clothing stores.

Call me crazy but this doesn't seem like the kind of behavior that's conducive to one of Charlie's Angels — does it?

Megan Fox admitted to stealing makeup from Wal-Mart in her youth.

"I don't know if the ban was for life, but when I was 14 or 15 I did get caught and convicted of stealing Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen cosmetics from a Wal-Mart," Megan explained to The Daily Mail.

Shelly Morrison was arrested for shoplifting costume jewelry from Robinsons-May department store.

Fans will more than likely recall Shelly from her time on Will & Grace. She stole a little more than $400 worth of goods and was only released from jail after posting $20,000 bail.

Beth Ditto used to frequently steal from Goodwill.

“If I want something, I have to have it," Beth explained in an interview with PaperMag. "But not anymore. The last time was three months ago – a dress from Marshalls.”

Kim Richards got caught stealing $600 from Target and had to spend the night in jail.

For years, Kim had battled addiction and substance abuse. After the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was released, she was later sentenced to community service.

Lindsay Lohan tried to walk out of a store while wearing a necklace worth $2500.

This was far from the first time Lindsay found herself standing before a judge. Lindsay was told not to push her luck and that she wasn't above the law.

Caroline Giuliani stole countless items from Sephora.

Caroline is the daughter of former New York City mayor, Rudy Giuliani. I suppose that dishonesty and thievery must run in the family, especially when you consider all the hot water that Rudy currently finds himself navigating.

Winona Ryder stole over $5000 from Saks Fifth Avenue.

"In a weird way, it was almost like the best thing that could have happened because I’d never asked myself the question before of, ”Is it okay if I’m not going to act? Is there anything else?” because that was all that I really knew," Winona told Interview Magazine
