Ever heard of the phrase, "a picture says a thousand words?" Well, that phrase rings especially true for celebrities. Whether a celeb is just starting to put their name out there or is simply serving an update to fans about the work they are doing, they want to put their best foot forward when it comes to photoshoots to look good for their fans and the general public. And when it's good, it's really good. But sometimes, that is not always the case. Sometimes celebrity photoshoots are just plain weird.
From a young Leonardo DiCaprio posing with bananas to a relatively recent snap of Lady Gaga wearing nothing but gigantic wedges and carrying a skateboard, celebrities are no strangers to posing with strange props or in front of odd backdrops for the camera. Thankfully for their fans, many of these shoots have become immortalized in the photo gallery of the Twitterverse, so if they are ever having a bad day they can always check in on these hilarious shots for a good laugh.
And if you're in need of one today, take a glance through some of the best weird celebrity photoshoots out there below. You'll be glad you did!
1. Leonardo DiCaprio
I don't think anyone knows exactly what is going on here, including the poor actor, seen here long before his Great Gatsby and Wolf of Wall Street days. But that fruit is really something.
2. Robert Pattinson
Before his brooding days playing Edward Cullen, the Twilight alum got his name out there by posing for a Chinese underwear magazine.
3. Kim Kardashian
Earlier this summer, the reality star drew headlines for this odd (and very naked) photoshoot taken, quite literally, in a pile of muck.
4. Ryan Gosling
Hey Girl, does this wallpaper bring out the color of my eyes?
5. Miley Cyrus
Paper magazine is no stranger to odd photoshoots. From the folks that tried to make Kim Kardashian break the Internet with her butt, we have now been graced with a naked Miley Cyrus and her pet pig.
6. Justin Bieber
Biebs brought out his dark side in this shoot, even whipping out a knife. Scary!
7. Lady Gaga
Gaga is no stranger to unconventional snapshots. We're talking someone who wore a dress made out of meat, for crying out loud. But this picture raises so many questions. Where is she skateboarding? How is she skateboarding? Why is she skateboarding?
8. Katy Perry
Quite possibly one of the most awkward connections between "fire extinguisher" and "hot."
A list of weird celebrity photoshoots would be incomplete without the Queen of Pop herself, who has caused (and still manages to cause) a lot of controversy with her photos. But one of the oddest has to be this relatively mild one. Because of these swans. Why? The world may never know.
Every celebrity wants a memorable photoshoot, and it's safe to say they succeeded here. Even though it might not have left the impression they had in mind, at least they'll leave fans with a smile.
