19 Times Celebrities Shared Their 'Imperfect' Photos

Stars aren’t immune to imperfections. Like us, they have stretch marks, cellulite, and annoying zits.

While some airbrush these imperfections away (some quite badly), others embrace their flaws.

They do so with unedited magazine covers and Instagram selfies — and we love them for it!

Here are 19 times celebs shared their "imperfect" photos and inspired us all!

Kylie Jenner

The reality star has never been afraid to share the scar that she got as a kid.

In the past, she's said that she "loves" her scar and has called it a "loyal friend."

Sarah Hyland

The Modern Family star took an opposite approach for #NationalSelfieDay.

Instead of sharing a photo of herself all done up, she shared a selfie that displays her struggles with the health conditions, endometriosis and kidney dysplasia.

Ashley Graham

The plus-size model always encourages women to love the skin they're in.

"I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I'm in. And I'm not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite.. and you shouldn't be either," she shared on Instagram.

Serena Williams

The tennis star refused to have her photos retouched for her Harper's Bazaar cover.

“I’ve been called every name in the book," she shared in the issue. "I’ve been shamed because of my body shape. I’ve been paid unequally because of my sex...In short, it’s never been easy."

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato has always been a champion for body positivity — and we love them for it.

They once shared this unedited pic with an empowering purpose: "I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards."


The Bachelor alum won't shy away from sharing realistic photos on social media.

"Every mom bod is different—some are thin and some are round, some are wrinkly and some are hairy, some are light and some are brown," she wrote.

Katy Perry

Before having her daughter, Daisy, with fiancé, Orlando Bloom, the singer slayed the red carpet of the MTV VMAs.

But since she gave birth just days before the 2020 event, her attire looked a little different. "Hair n makeup by exhaustion," she wrote.

Priyanka Chopra

At first glance, you might be wondering why she's showing off her armpits.

But there's a deeper meaning here; she decided to show them off after Maxim India photoshopped them like crazy. You go, girl!


The actress gave the world another reason to love her when she shared this edited photo of her body compared to the real one.

"These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have," she wrote.

Jameela Jamil

The Good Place actress is always known for keeping it real.

"All girls have cellulite," she wrote on Instagram. "Often even new born babies have it. It’s totally normal, and not a failure of any kind. Celebrities , adverts. and magazines have GOT to stop editing this stuff out."

Brooklyn Decker

Believe it or not, that is Brooklyn Decker! The Grace & Frankie star shared this picture of her eye acting up.

"#nofilterbecausewhy," she wrote, adding that her husband made this her phone background #couplegoals.

Hilary Duff

The Lizzie McGuire star posted this image "on behalf of young girls, women, and mothers of all ages" as a way to encourage everyone to embrace their bodies.

"Ladies, lets be proud of what we've got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed," she wrote.


Leave it to Queen RiRi to start a trend!

She helped women feel more comfortable with their body hair when she shared her visible leg hair in this picture. You can see more celebs rocking body hair here.

Chrissy Teigen

Even if you're not her biggest fan ATM, you can't deny that the star always keeps things real.

She once shared this unedited picture of her stretch marks on Instagram. Stretchies say hi!" she wrote.

Jessica Simpson

When the star was struggling with swollen ankles as the result of pregnancy, she could've handled it privately with her doctor.

Instead, she decided to reach out online, which made other expecting mothers feel less alone.

Danielle Brooks

The Orange Is the New Black star took a big stance on photo-editing when she shared this gorgeous picture on Instagram.

"Why Photoshop when you this P•H•A•T (Pretty, Hot, And Tempting)," she wrote. Amen, sis!

Rachel Bloom

Even celebs get pimples! This was proven when the actress shared how filming wreaks havoc on her skin.

"The middle of shooting the season (around episode 8) is peak time for my hormones to run amok due to a hectic schedule," she shared. "Try to spot the bloating, fatigue and zits and win a prize!"

Amy Schumer

The comedian is never afraid to keep it real.

Five weeks after giving birth to her first son, she shared a photo of herself taking a walk with him in just her bra and hospital undies! "5 weeks. Hospital underwear for life!" she wrote.
