12 Celebrities You Completely Misunderstood

By Tiffany White

People think they know celebrities. They read the profiles, they follow them on Twitter, and share GIFs of their funny soundbites. But even though we think we know everything about the biggest stars, sometimes there's a huge difference between a celeb's public persona and their actual personality. In fact, there are several famous people you've probably been misunderstanding this whole time. Below, a few celebs who deserve your apology (maybe).

The former Spice Girl has had a rough relationship with the public. Because she never smiles, her stiff, serious face has inadvertently created a public persona that's vastly different from her real personality. While the "public" Victoria is an aloof fashionista, the "real" Victoria is actually surprisingly hilarious. "I think they have this impression that I’m this miserable cow who doesn’t smile," she told W magazine. "But I’m actually quite the opposite." From poking fun at her many fashion eras to even drunkenly dancing to Spice Girls' "Spice Up Your Life" at a party, clearly we've all been wrong about her.
