There are things we love and things we hate about fame-hungry celebrities, but sometimes it just seems that being a celebrity is the best thing on the planet. Sometimes we can get so star struck that we end up fantasizing about how it would be to walk a mile (or more) in their shoes, because they have it so good! If you know that there’s no way you’re going to be a celebrity in your lifetime, then we’ve got 10 ways you can act like a celebrity without actually being one. Enjoy and avoid the paparazzi… or better yet, enjoy their attention!
10. Name Drop
If there’s one thing that celebrities do well, that’s name drop famous people. It’s their way of letting you know that they’re not like you and they never will be. I mean, they’ve hung out with Scorsese and Kate Winslet! If you drank a beer with Johnny Depp wouldn’t you brag about it to all your friends and acquaintances… and even strangers on the street?
9. Always Carry Your Phone in Your Hand
You’ve got a smartphone (almost everyone does) and if you’re trying to channel a celebrity, then don’t put it in your pocket or your purse, hold it in your hand as if you were expecting an important call any minute now. Famous people always have something going on and keeping your phone close is the best way to handle your business. Even if you’re only expecting a phone call from your mother.
8. Practice in the Mirror
Have you noticed how practiced some celebrities’ moves are? Their smiles and faces? It’s because they practice in the mirror, they study themselves to see what works best. They have to because there are camera and flashes pretty much everywhere they go. If you want to act like a celebrity, practice your faces in the mirror!
7. Walk Down the Street Like You Own It
Most celebrities have attitude. You can tell they’re famous from the way they walk down the street. You know what they say you have to fake it till you make it, so even if you don’t own anything except a worn pair of pants, strut your stuff like you’re king and queen of the universe and people will start to take notice.
6. Wear Designer Clothes
OK, this actually requires you to have money, like almost all celebrities, but there is a way to get around it. There are some designer outlet or thrift shops where you can get a Dolce & Gabbana dress for $30! You just have to find those shops and when you do, you’ll have to invest some time and do a little digging for the right clothes.
5. Cause Drama
If you want to act like a celebrity then you have to have a little drama in your life. Cause drama and let it happen to you, that’s the world in which celebrities thrive! Even if there is nothing special happening in your life and the highlight of your week is going to the shop around the corner for a bottle of red wine, you have to plan for drama to happen. Nobody said that being a celebrity is going to be easy.
4. Wear Shades at Night
If you’re out on the town and it’s night, then it’s sunglasses are a must if you want to emulate any self-respecting celebrity. They actually wear sunglasses at night for two reasons: because they don’t want to show the paparazzi their unmade faces and because the paparazzi’s flashes are extremely powerful and could temporarily blind a person. We know that there’s no paparazzi following you, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t wear shades at night.
If you’re going to a party or a special event, then you can’t just go in a taxi or on foot, you have to arrive in style, like a celebrity, so rent a car or a limo. It may cost you a pretty penny, but think of the all the waves you’re going to cause! Everybody’s going to take notice of you!
2. Pretend You’re Famous
When all else fails, all you need to do is pretend you’re famous and everything is going to be alright. Celebrities sometimes like to hide the fact that they’re famous, but they almost always do it in a way that attracts even more attention to themselves. Learn from the best!
1. Make Hair and Nail Appointments Every Week…
… and keep them. Celebrities cherish their hair and looks more than the average Joe, so if you want to act like a celebrity without actually being one, then you should do the same. You don’t have to spend a little fortune on hair and nails, you just have to invest some time in finding the right salon for your finances and once you do, go wild!
