Their world seems so far removed from reality – flawless photoshoots, glamourous designer gear and those envy-inducing getaways to private islands. But celebs can do some pretty ordinary things too. Some garden on weekends, some bake pies and others cut up jeans to make shorts. Every so often, we get a glimpse of stars doing the things that show they’re regular people too.

They’re not that wild about exercise: Booksmart director Olivia Wilde looked less than impressed when she was spotted out for a run in London recently.

They go all out when they’re on holiday: Justin Bieber and his wife, Hailey, had no intention of blending in with the locals when they went sightseeing in Paris earlier this month. The couple went for broke with fluffy hats in France’s fashion capital.

They get cabin fever too: She recently hurt herself after falling off a balance board – but not even a broken leg could keep Brooke Shields from getting out. The actress was spotted on her way to a lunch date with a gal pal in New York.

They’re also trying to master wearing a mask – and eating : Veteran actress Susan Sarandon looked awkward juggling her mask and a snack outside a bakery while shopping by in Soho, New York.

They help their partner out: A pregnant Hilary Duff knows she can always count on her man, musician Matthew Koma. After the pair went for a recent Covid-19 test in Los Angeles, Mathew made sure she was masked up properly.
