Celebs without makeup: Do you recognize them?


What if we were the cop who pulled Reese and her hubby over? Would we be able to recognize a celeb under those circumstances? Check out these images and see what you think.

Reese Witherspoon

As we recover from our collective gasp after realizing Reese Witherspoon was arrested for disorderly conduct last Friday, we’re digesting her “You’re about to find out who I am” quote to the police. While it’s fun for ordinary folks to play “Do you know who I am?” in Vegas, it got us wondering: How hard is it to recognize a celebrity when they aren’t on-screen?

The always gorgeous Mrs. DeGeneres proves here that she looks amazing with or without makeup, but might you recognize her if she was a bit dressed down? Hard to say. Since she and Ellen are inseparable and typically holding hands, that would likely be a dead giveaway.

Can’t a gal just go to the gym and get her spin class on without photographers climbing up her backside? Evidently not. Jennifer is known for her beauty (remember how jealous we were of her when she starred opposite Enrique Iglesias in the Hero video?), but if she was speeding on the way home from the gym and we pulled her over, would we recognize her? Since her breasts are somewhat legendary, perhaps we’d have a better chance recognizing her if her gym-wear was low-cut.

Mila (how we love to hate her! Ha, ha) can land Justin Timberlake on-screen and Ashton Kutcher off. Just doesn’t seem fair. However, when she was photographed bumming around town, she looked like a college kid running out for a six-pack of beer. If she slammed that beer and drove home, it’s hard to say if we’d recognize her for the stud-magnet she is.

Emma Roberts, who inherited her dad’s and her aunt’s (Julia Roberts) drop-dead gorgeous smile and teeth, looks amazing no matter what she’s doing. Ah, for the days of youth. She’s a bit of a chameleon, though. She’s at that age where she actually looks younger without makeup on! So if we pulled her over, there’s a very good chance she’d have to come at us with, “Do you know who I am?”

Felicity HuffmanFelicity HuffmanFelicity Huffman

In this first image, Felicity looks much like she did on Desperate Housewives — like the woman we see at PTA meetings and at the soccer field several times a week. But all glammed up she looks like a dead ringer for the adorable and aging-equally-as-well Elisabeth Shue. If we pulled Felicity over looking like she does in the first photo, we’d ask to see her license, registration and her membership card to Soccer Moms of America.

Kirsten DunstKirsten DunstKirsten Dunst

Ever since playing a little vampire with Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in Interview with the Vampire, Kirsten has rocked a captivating look that is uniquely her own. She adamantly denies fixing her trademark teeth (though they look pretty perfect in the second image!), so that may give her away if we pulled her over. If she committed a moving violation looking like she does in the first image, we’d think a junior-high girl had stolen her mom’s car!
