Reese Witherspoon, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Rihanna—it's as if these celebrities were destined to make it big in Hollywood from the moment their parents signed their birth certificate. But as it turns out, some of the most acclaimed household names weren't born with the golden ticket to stardom. Instead, they paved their own ways, often adopting a stage name to help open doors.

On the surface, the pair make a lot of sense: Swift, the most successful pop star on the planet, Hiddleston, a very British actor in a very successful franchise. She's tall, he's tall. Neither of them can dance. But the very public way in which they have played out their romance so far—kissing on a beach in front of the paparazzi, meeting each other's parents in front of the paparazzi, touring Rome in front of the paparazzi, celebrating the 4th of July in front of the paparazzi—has led everyone from their respective fanbases to Phillip Schofield to call bullshit on the whole spectacle. But celebrities end up in fake relationships if it indeed is a fake relationship all the time, for many reasons. Usually it's just good old-fashioned, dead-eyed cynical ambition.

Whether it's just a little jab of Botox or a more severe cosmetic procedure like breast implants or a face lift, stars have long since been going under the needle and the knife in complete denial.

Hadid has previously spoken out about how she stopped getting Botox injections and dermal fillers years ago after being diagnosed with Lyme. Ariel Winter had a breast reduction to ease unnecessary pain—but she won't stand for social media trolls accusing her of going under the knife for more than just that. In a cover story interview with InStyle , the singer opened about a small cosmetic tweak. Supermodel Cindy Crawford admits to having shots of Botox in the past. I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat, and exercise… but I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon. I admit it! Fake hair, and I did my nose.
