It seems like every celebrity’s public image is so contrived and tightly controlled by his or her team that it’s hard to know what they are really like. To come across a photo that isn’t carefully posed, photoshopped, and/or filtered on Instagram is a complete rarity as compared to what's normally jammed down the public’s throat under the guise of authenticity. All these posed pictures can get a little boring. That is why coming across candid photos of celebrities is such a rare treat.
This gallery is full of fun and funny pictures of celebrities hanging out with their friends. These photos are particularly candid because no one is more themselves than when they are with their friends. Whether they are hanging out on set taking a break, in the studio joking around, or just driving around town with a blow-up doll, catching celebs in these special moments is not only rare but also interesting.So, which celebrity hangout would you most want to be a part of? Would you want to catch up with Brad Pitt and Clint Eastwood making shadow puppets? Party with Kayne West and Prince Harry? Or maybe joke around with Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Nas, and Timbaland in the studio? Whoever it is, check out these rare photos of celebrities just chilling and vote up the pictures that you most wish you could have been in, too.
