Celebrity Wax Figures That Totally Fail


When you think of wax figures you generally think of the holy grail of museums, Madame Tussauds. But there’s actually a number of smaller museums around the world who try their best, but just aren’t quite on the same level. That said, even Madame Tussauds get it a wrongs sometimes! From an unrecognizable Prince William to a misshapen Jennifer Garner, you might have to take a second look to recognize who these interesting replicas are meant to be.

Now that we know this wax figure is supposed to be a copy of our gal Kylie Minogue, we can see it … kind of. But on first glance, it’s a different story. Does it still count if you have to explain to your friends who the celebrity waxwork is you’re posing with in a photo? Rumor has it, the showgirl is back in the studio. Perhaps a new album might inspire a new and (hopefully) improved wax figure.

Shakira, is that you?! We’re calling it: Beyoncé’s Madame Tussauds wax figure does not look like Beyoncé. She’s probably too busy with the newly-debuted twins to notice, thankfully… (It’s worth mentioning this isn’t the only time Queen Bey appears on this list!)

Ok, ok, this technically isn’t a wax figure (more a downright monstrosity) but we had to include this statue of Cristiano Ronaldo. The soccer star returned to his home of Madeira, Portugal, where they’re renaming an airport after him. They also unveiled this statue. Uncanny, right?!

Poor Meryl. It’s not enough she has President Trump calling her a “overrated” and Chanel boss Karl Lagerfield deeming her “cheap,” now it seems the artists over at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood may have a bone to pick with her because there’s something just not quite right about her recently revamped wax figure. The more you look, the more you can see it.

Help! Jennifer Lopez’s head has been deflated.

Jennifer Garner’s head looks as though it has been accidentally attached to a bodybuilder figure at this museum.

Katy Perry is close, but a blue wig doesn’t fix the problems here.

Chris Hemsworth doesn’t looked convinced with his wax Thor replica. Is it the tiny head or platinum blonde Barbie wig that’s throwing you, buddy?

If she wasn’t labeled, we’d have no idea this was meant to be Nicole Kidman.

Whoever made this Bill Clinton figure needs to step away from the wax. But perhaps more pressing is why faux Bill has a cat on his shoulder. No really, any ideas?

Faux Kim Kardashian seems like the real thing, until you realize it actually has the face of her sister Kendall Jenner.

Someone who has never seen before Beyoncé clearly made this figure. Clearly.

We can’t put out finger on it, but there’s just something not quite right about this Emma Watson wax figure.

Hopefully Kylie Jenner’s wax figure turns out a little better than her sister’s.
