Maybe you're like me. I have a passion for both food and entertainment. If I'm not covering sports for a living, I'm either trying out new menu items or checking out the latest headlines on my favorite celebrities. But in this instance, I'm going to try to be a bonafide foodie and pop culture fanatic by doing something that I normally don't do everyday—compare and contrast celebrities who kind of look like food. Yeah, I know that's sort of weird, but hey, it sounded a fun topic to write about.
And even if you're not a fan of both hobbies, you might still want to scroll through my list just to see if you know these celebrities. After all, I may give you a pop quiz. No, I'm only kidding. This is solely for your reading pleasure! I promise.
Anyways, there ARE celebrities who remind of things that we want (or don't) want to eat or drink, so I must bring up the ones who I feel fit the criteria best. From the rapper Iggy Azalea to the King of Rock 'n' Roll Elvis Presley, I'm fairly confident you'll recognize a few of these names I'm about to mention.
Noe without further ado, here are 20 pictures of celebrities who kind of look like food.
19 Elvis Presley Bacon
The late Elvis Presley (1935-77) was widely considered as the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Presley was born in Mississippi and later moved to Tennessee with his family to pursue a music career. That move, my friends, worked in Presley's favor as he became one of the most respected musicians in history.
Like most other stars, Presley surrounded himself with a lot of gorgeous women who adored him. I can't blame them either. Presley was a handsome man who rocked a vast array of outfits for his shows, and is known for his love of bacon. Clearly, bacon loves him back - you can clearly see Presley's silhouette in this crispy piece of bacon.
18 Jay Leno Potato
Remember Jay Leno? Leno was the host of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on NBC from 1992-2009. Before that, Leno did stand-up comedy for a number of years.
But if you take a closer look at Leno and zoom in on his face, you'll notice that his face looks, well, like a potato. There are a couple of potatoes like this one that totally looks like him! I know it sounds a tad bit corny, but this was a coincidence that I just HAD to bring up! It's too funny not to share with all of you. I hope I was able to make you chuckle.
17 Whoopi Goldberg Onion
Emmy Award-winning television host Whoopi Goldberg is known for being the second black woman to win an Academy Award for acting. Goldberg is also one of the few entertainers to win an Emmy Award. Moreover, Goldberg's breakthrough role was Celie, a mistreated Deep South woman, in the historical period drama The Color Purple in 1985.
Goldberg, however, resembles a red onion...especially when she tries to smile. I can't put a finger on all the striking similarities, but I think her cheekbones have something to do with the out-of-place similarity to a versatile vegetable that can make you shed a few tears.
16 The Joker Yogurt Parfait
The late actor and director Heath Ledger (1979-2008) was one of the most tragic stories in Hollywood. Ledger had just finished acting out his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight in 2008 when he suddenly passed.
Yes, Ledger's role of The Joker was a tremendous part of the superhero film, but if you take another look at his full makeup on face photos, you'll notice that he resembled a fruit and yogurt parfait on the set. Why so serious? I mean, nutritious. After all, it's a healthy and a low cost type of on-the-go breakfast.
15 Britney Spears Red Licorice
"Oops!...I Did It Again" by Britney Spears was one of the hottest songs in my generation. So there's no doubt that I had to give a shoutout to the Princess of Pop in my list. I mean, she rocked a red bodysuit in the music video that hasn't been pulled off fashionably well, not even by the current highest-paid model Kendall Jenner.
Of course, Spears' bodysuit is an example of an acquired taste, but it also resembles a piece of red licorice, all shiny and slender. Whether or not you're a fan of licorice, you can't go wrong with Spears' old wardrobe.
14 Kim Kardashian Cake
Keeping Up with the Kardashians...and their endless supply of dresses!
KUWTK star Kim Kardashian doesn't always wear minidresses, but when she does, she makes sure she stands out from the crowd. Kardashian apparently followed that eccentric philosophy when she wore a baby blue dress to a luncheon with three of her sisters. That dress, my friends, was gorgeous, but it also resembles an ornate cake design in a similar shade. It's almost like Kardashian came up with a whole new fashion trend after checking out some cakes in a bakery somewhere in Europe. You heard it here first.
13 Lady Gaga Coconut Cake
You'll never get bored of Lady Gaga and her outfits because she'll likely wear something interesting that you likely wouldn't think about wearing while out and about.
Aside from making music and starring in movies, Lady Gaga owns some of the most eccentric outfits in the fashion catalogs. Take, for example, the white cutout dress she wore to catch a flight at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). This just goes to show that you can't bring a coconut past the security gate, but you can wear coconut shavings that resemble the ones to top off a coconut cake.
12 Justin Timberlake Noodle Hair
If you're a '90s kid like myself, you were likely infatuated by Justin Timberlake at one point in your childhood. After all, Timberlake was one of those crushes that most, if not all, '90s kids had.
If you're older than most of our readers, Timberlake rose to fame as the youngest member of the boy band NSYNC and then parted ways with the fellas to pursue a singing and acting career, which worked out for him. But I still can't get over Timberlake's old hairstyle when he had the curly hair. It was pretty epic yet funny as his curls resembled ramen noodles.
11 Gwen Stefani Cream Horns
Love, angel, music, baby...and cream horns?
Gwen Stefani isn't only a pop singer, but also a fashion icon with an awesome sense of style. Admit it, you can't take your eyes off her luscious platinum blonde hair —and it doesn't even matter if it's short, long, straight or curly. She's a beauty, no matter what.
But in this instance, Stefani's hairstyle also makes me crave some baked goods as the honey toned hair, cinnamon bun side part and scone updo makes the 'do look like cream horns. Excuse me while I dash to the bakery for a box of cream horns.
10 Taylor Swift Cupcake
Chances are, you've given a thumbs up to a Taylor Swift on the Pandora app, even if you're not a fan of country music.
Yep, Swift arguably fits in the genre of pop country, but she's still a talented singer nonetheless. Swift looked absolutely adorable in her Keds campaign for a Seventeen Magazine issue in March 2014. The yellow polka dot dress and white Keds looks like a color combination that's somehow easy on the eyes. But if you put a little more thought on the dress, you'll realize that it sort of resembles a yellow polka dot cake, which can also be a pretty sight to see.
9 Ellie Goulding Religieuse Pastry
English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding is a unique vocalist with a really pretty voice who isn't everyone's cup of tea, but you can't intentionally ignore most, if not all, her outfits in her public and private lives.
Goulding look every bit like a pop princess when she stepped on the red carpet in a strapless blush pink dress on the red carpet at the 2014 Brit Awards. Goulding's so adorable, but you know, you can pretty much think about the pastel-colored religieuse pastry from a high-end patisserie in Paris.
8 Iggy Azalea Fries
It might be a simple comparison, but as soon as I saw a picture of Iggy Azalea flaunting it on the big stage, it was hard not to think of her long blonde locks as fries. Yes, fries.
For those of you who don't know, Azalea is a rapper who topped the charts with songs like "Work" and "Pretty Girls." Anyways, Azalea looks absolutely gorgeous with an even more gorgeous hairstyle that can keep up with her whether she's lounging around or performing onstage. But it's sort of laughable that her hair looks like fries when its flying around without a care.
7 Amber Rose Cheeto
Whether or not you give a darn about Amber Rose, you can't deny the fact that she looks like a lone Cheeto in this side-by-side picture that I found on the internet.
Rose is a familiar face in the tabloids and her signature bleached blonde buzz cut generated a ton of buzz-worthy headlines, most of which asked the question that most, if not all, of us have asked: "Why on earth did she decide to shave her full head of beautiful hair?" I mean, Rose may look cute with the yellow hues, but we just can't shake the mental image of her as a Cheeto - thanks, Internet.
6 Kaley Cuoco Meringue
Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco hit the red carpet in style at the 2017 SAG Awards in Los Angeles, California. Cuoco certainly proved to us that she was pretty in pink when she rocked a Marchesa gown that featured a pink and blue tulle skirt AND train! Somehow, I think pop star Katy Perry could've pulled off this gown, too; but that thought can be saved for later.
For now, Cuoco's gown is girly and whimsical. Not only that, the gown also resembles a pretty pastel meringue. You can't get any more feminine that, so go ahead with all the aw's.
5 Alex Bowen Avocado
Alex Bowen is another UK man that you may not have heard of before, but that's perfectly fine.
In a nutshell, Bowen is a model and reality television star who was best known for tying the knot with Olivia Buckland on the reality TV series Love Island on ITV. Bowen may not enjoy the long-term effects of the limelight, but at least he found love to become a happily married man off the cameras. Enough of that. Bowen's olive green long-sleeve shirt makes him look like avocado toast. Not sure if he was trying to be a hipster, but yeah.
4 Miley Cyrus Red Velvet Cupcake
Pop singer-songwriter Miley Cyrus blossomed from Hannah Montana to a good girl gone bad over the years.
Cyrus may have reverted to her good girl ways, and we love this glamorous red dress she chose for the red carpet. Cyrus looked good, but it also resembled a red velvet cupcake. Red velvet cupcakes are delicious and that was perhaps a reason why Cyrus opted for this ensemble.
3 Jennifer Lawrence Cornish Pasty
Actress Jennifer Lawrence is a Southern gal who can pull off all sorts of looks, but when she rocks a seemingly imperfect updo for the red carpet, she resembles a Cornish pastry, which is arguably the best baked good in the south of Tamar in Georgia.
I mean, think about the pinch of pepper in the twisted tendril, slices of potatoes in the wide smile and the onion bit in the straight bangs. J-Law is a winner, but this ensemble and outfit is a winning recipe that can impress the masses who keep tabs on both food and pop culture.
2 Karlie Kloss Vanilla Cake
Karlie Kloss is living proof that you can be a model, entrepreneur AND a baker! Since the peak of her career, Kloss has been juggling a long list of careers that some of us could only dream about. Kloss has an insanely packed schedule, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that she opts for classic, simple ensembles on and off the runway.
As you probably already knew, Kloss wore a white Stella McCartney dress with an asymmetrical cape detail at the 2017 Oscars. This ensemble turned a lot of heads to the tall, leggy beauty, who always finds a way to draw attention in a positive manner. However, Kloss does resemble a white cake in this picture, which can be taken as a compliment since she's sweet like sugar.
1 Matt Smith Banana
Some of our readers won't recognize Matt Smith since he's an actor from the UK who's best known for his role as the 11th doctor in the 11th incarnation of Doctor Who on BBC.
But it doesn't matter if you're familiar with Smith or not because this list focuses on celebrities and food not celebrities and pop quizzes. That being said, Smith looks like a chocolate covered banana especially when he's sporting his dark side-swept bangs. Who would've thought that Smith resembled a semi-healthy snack that can be found on one of the shelves in a chocolate factory in any given city?
