This week, the Listmaster was inspired by Us Weekly and asked us to come up with a list of how celebrities are just like us. Or not.
One would think pregnancy would be the great equalizer, right? Wellll, yes and no. Some celebrities do seem to be fairly normal when it comes to pregnancy. They admit to craving naughty foods, gain weight everywhere instead of just looking like they swallowed a basketball, and some of them probably even get stretch marks.
Just like us:
Apart from being married to Ben Affleck and being famous and having buttloads of money, Jennifer Garner seems like she could be the girl next door. Like we could totally rent a chick flick together and pig out on popcorn, candy, and chocolate and justify it by saying we're eating for two. And then we would compare pregnancy symptoms and braid each other's hair...
(Okay, it's possible I have a slight girl crush on Jennifer Garner.)
Yep, she's gained a lot of weight during her pregnancy. That's what most of us do. Seems normal to me. I wish people would stop calling her fat and back off a little. Having grown up in the spotlight, it's probably the first time she's not had to watch her weight. Let's just let her have that, okay? (Those heels, however, fall into the "not normal" category. Pregnancy is known to throw you off balance, and those just look plain treacherous!)
She just seems really down to earth. Plus, she wears flats.
Another girl-next-door type. But blonder. And this is the type of maternity outfit I can totally get behind.
Not at all like us (or perhaps I should just speak for myself?):
Victoria's Secret models
They look cute at every stage of pregnancy, stay skinny everywhere but their bellies, and are back on the runway and doing photo shoots mere weeks after giving birth. Nope, not like me at all. But then, I am currently polishing off the last of the Ben & Jerry's and am planning to chase that down with some Girl Guide cookies, so... mystery solved, I guess?
I don't really need to explain this one, do I?
No one is supposed to look this good in a white dress while pregnant. Her butt didn't even get fat! (Butt not withstanding, I do love Natalie Portman. This is purely jealousy speaking.)
I have nothing against Beyonce, but she was impossibly glamorous and glow-y throughout her entire pregnancy. It just makes it hard for the rest of us regular preggos to keep up, you know what I mean?
C'mon, you had to know that one was coming!
Now, in all fairness, I should be posting a recent preggy pic of myself for comparison, but sadly, I have very few from this pregnancy, and literally none since I truly popped. It's on the to do list, I promise. For now, you'll have to make due with my (somewhat distorted) shadow:
