20 Celebrity Wax Figures That Are So WTF They Deserve Their Own Museum

Robert Pattinson

Who the flip is this? Seriously. Don’t think you need reading glasses or that there’s something wrong with your computer screen, because some of these celebrity wax figures are so bad, I had to make sure that I was labelling them right, otherwise I’d have no fucking clue who they were. Some are so hilariously wrong that clearly they were made on Take Your Kids To Work Day, while others are just a nose too big or an eyebrow too slanted, so they just look weird–or like the celebrity’s uglier sibling.

Let’s play a game: Here are 20 celebrity wax figures. See if you can guess which celebrities they are (don’t cheat and read the titles):

1. MadonnaMadonna Wax Figure

I know Madonna has a habit of being so heavily Photoshopped so that she doesn’t even look like herself, but this takes things to another level. And what the hell is up with those eyelashes?

2. Angelina JolieAngelina Jolie Wax Figure

They may have gotten the perfectly plump lips right, but that’s about the only facial feature I recognize to be Angelina Jolie‘s. This is a very pretty wax figure, but Angie it is not.

3. Justin BieberJustin Bieber wax figure

This doesn’t look like Justin Bieber now, and it doesn’t look like him before he became a total douche. That expression makes it look like he’s cooking up trouble, so I guess it’s not entirely inaccurate.

4. Lady GagaLadgy Gaga Wax Figure

Perhaps Lady Gaga couldn’t have been bothered to remove all her makeup, wigs and hats when they were taking her measurements for this wax figure, which is why it looks nothing like her. If she hadn’t already posed without makeup, I would have thought this is what she looks like under the dead pigeon hats and coats of makeup, but I know better.

5. Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift wax figure

Taylor Swift deserves better than this. The ghostly color of those arms and legs don’t match Taylor’s real skin tone, and they don’t even match this supposed lookalike’s face. No one has that color skin, unless they are a corpse.

6. Daniel Radcliffe

You may have thought you could fool us because Daniel Radcliffe spends most of Harry Potter wearing wire-framed glasses, but even a Muggle would know Daniel doesn’t look like this. You might as well just put a lightening bolt on his forehead and tell us it’s accurate. Psssh.

7.  Halle BerryHalle Berry Wax Figure

This is a very pretty woman, but Halle Berry it is not.

8. Justin TimberlakeJustin Timberlake wax work

If Justin Timberlake had a baby with Kris Humphries this is what it would look like. It could happen someday.

9. Heidi KlumHeidi Klum Wax Figure

This is Heidi Klum posing with what is supposed to be her wax double–you don’t think she stood next to the wrong figure, do you?

10. Zac EfronZac Efron wax work

Zac Efron‘s High School Music Days weren’t that long ago, so we know this is not what he looked like then. There’s something about that smile (and outfit) that make me think present day Clint Eastwood. How complimentary.

Click on the next page to see what Miley Cyrus and Leonardo DiCaprio‘s wax “doubles” look like–and who the wax figure in the main image is supposed to be.

    Clearly Heather is obsessed with Taylor Swift. That wax figure looks exactly like swift when she wasnt stick skinny and the skin tone is spot on! Go figure a whitey complaining about how white a wax figure skin tone is. It’s WAX! ITS NATURALLY GLOSSY! Why didn’t you mention Zac Efron’s skin tone? His rosy cheeks make him either drunk or latin. The figures of Bieber, Gaga, and Klum are also spot on. Again, wax is glossy never matte like real skin. Plus, wax figure makers use clay moldings, so essentially they focus on distinctive attributes such as face structure, accurate body measurements, and the figurine’s pose (body expression-language). Skin tone is the last thing they think about or work on. Next time, explain your reasons more thoroughly like you did with Taylor Swift, instead of “but I know better”. It’s more consistent that way.

      Did I also mention that celebrities also tend to look like one another? Amy Adams played Heidi Klum on SNL thanks to their similarities. Same make up techniques? Same hair style? Identical attributes? Same dresses and poses for paparazzi? Yes some of the wax figures don’t look like the real deal, but you can still make out some of their more recognizable attributes. One should always be open minded, especially when it comes to art.
