Celebrities have very busy lives — and don't you forget it. 

No, really. They're constantly going from place to place, and there's barely a moment for them to breathe. I mean, I'm going out on a limb here, but I think it's fair to say that even when it looks like your favorite celebrities are relaxing, they're still hard at work. 

And when they're not on set, in the recording studio or sitting down for an interview, celebrities often attend various events that result in them getting their photo snapped. We all get to enjoy those photos in our favorite magazines, and luckily, there are occasions (like this special slideshow) when we get to see snaps from special celebrity-filled events that might not make it to other publications. 

So, here's what celebrities do when they aren't at their day job but still find time to live the good life while promoting worthy causes and fun products outside of their regular 9-to-5 and, frequently, when they're in New York or Los Angeles.
