Disney stars grow up in the spotlight and are accustomed to cameras being pointed at them everywhere they go. Generations have grown up idolizing them and following their every move. While their careers may have initially started with Disney in a very “PG” and wholesome way, many have gone on to pursue personal and professional paths that are anything but!
Disney is a stepping-stone for many of these ladies who have gone on to become celebrities. They go out on the road and encounter many new and wild experiences. Of course, their lives continue to be on public display, and sometimes the cameras capture personal and candid moments that we’re sure they wish they could undo. Let’s take a look at 18 less than flattering photos of Disney stars on the road.
18 Ashley Tisdale
Ashley Tisdale is nearly unrecognizable without her makeup on. She doesn’t seem impressed to be bombarded by cameras as she tries to get out of her car. Fans of her show “The Suite Life Of Zack and Cody” are accustomed to her looking considerably more put together than she appears in this photograph. She needs a bigger hat to hide from the paps!
17 Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan is in Mykonos, and it appears she will have to travel even further away if she’s trying to evade the cameras! This former Disney star has been surrounded by controversy and has had many public incidents unfold in front of the cameras. She looks like she’s trying to flee from it all in this photo.
16 Brenda Song
Wherever she was headed on this day, Brenda Song likely arrived there in a really, really bad mood. She definitely isn’t happy about the cameras capturing this moment, and the look on her face really says it all. It appears that she’s appalled to see a camera in front of her face, and based on her facial expression here, it’s likely that she exchanged words with the cameraman. This is not her most flattering moment!
15 Britney Spears
Britney Spears is one of the most famous Disney stars of all-time. She is very much a classic example of what happens when celebs become famous at a young age. She’s no stranger to losing her cool on camera. With so many of her wild moments caught on tape, we hardly think she’s too concerned about this photo.
14 Debby Ryan
Debby Ryan is struggling. Really, really struggling. While we admire her modesty and her attempt at a graceless exit, she didn’t quite succeed, and ended up looking awkward instead. It’s obvious that she put effort into this attempt though! She looks frustrated, and it looks like she could use some personal space.
13 Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato is staring down the cameraman, likely in an attempt to make sure this photo doesn’t see the light of day. Her scowl tells us everything we need to know about how she feels about being photographed in her workout gear. The poor girl can’t catch a break, and it looks like she really could use one!
12 Emily Osment
Emily Osment does not look like she has had a very fun time at this party. Seen here leaving the Marie Claire event in West Hollywood, it looks as though she’s fleeing early and trying to duck out. She likely didn’t want the cameras catching this moment, nor would she be happy to discover how widely this was circulated online!
Fergie is coming off a rough night, and no combination of shades and dim lighting is going to prevent us from noticing that! It’s clear that she was at a fancy event, but her exit from there is far less sophisticated and classy. We suggest using the back door next time, in a better attempt to evade the paparazzi.
10 Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff is having a girl moment and wants to be left alone with her tin of cookies! This image suggests she’s trying to have a casual, low-key day, and it’s unlikely that she can enjoy that if this relentless cameraman sticks around! This Disney star has risen to fame and is no stranger to a life with limited privacy, but this doesn’t look like a day that she welcomes the attention.
9 Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez clearly needs help getting out of this vehicle. She looks miserable and tired, she may have potentially been ill in this photograph. The struggle is real, as she clutches her wallet and oversized purse, seemingly unaware that the cameras were watching this feeble attempt at exiting the car. We hope her day got better as it went on!
8 Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens is a natural beauty. She doesn’t need to try - she always looks great, but in this photo, she definitely does not look happy to see the paparazzi. This Disney star just wants to go about her day, and looks stunned to see the cameras in front of her as she grabs her water bottle and tries to go about her day.
7 Hilary Duff Again
Here’s another image of Hilary. She’s once again in casual gear, attempting to dodge the cameras and the flash. She’s seen better moments, and we’re sorry this photo made its rounds, as it really doesn’t do her any justice. It must be frustrating to be photographed while in tights and trying to get out of a car that isn’t simple to exit from.
6 Miley Cyrus
We know Miley Cyrus has a few horses, and a pet pig, to name a few. We hope she’s off to take care of them in this photo, and not just wearing these clothes on an average day! More importantly, what is she hiding behind her back? We really need to know what she’s doing in the forest, looking so suspicious…
5 Bella Thorne
Bella Thorne is certainly not camera shy. She’s no stranger to being captured in various degrees of undress in front of the lens, and seems very comfortable in her own skin. You’d think she would put on a better show on this day, but she clearly hasn’t put much effort into herself. She looks disheveled and she’s clearly on a junk-food-bender. Nice touch with the socks, Bella!
Raven-Symoné is spotted in New York City looking…very…well… maybe she just didn’t have a lot of time to get ready this morning. While she’s not exactly known for looking meticulously assembled, this does seem like a few steps down from what she usually looks like. All the hair dye has clearly dried her hair out and we’re not sure what exactly happened to her pants.
3 Adrienne Bailon
Adrienne Bailon is as known for being a Disney star as she is for being Rob Kardashian’s ex-girlfriend. She sported many gorgeous outfits during her highly-photographed relationship with Rob and she always looked stunning. We like the casual look here Adrienne, but we could do without the over-posed kiss face!
2 Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera is seen here in a photo taken in October of 2010. Photographed with her son Max, she seems to be enjoying an afternoon in Santa Monica, California. Christina is a gorgeous woman with a voice to match, and we’re accustomed to seeing her at her finest moments. She is far less glamorous than usual in this photo. She looks like a tired mom, and she appears to be struggling to hold her son. We’ve all had those moments, but sadly hers was blasted for all to see.
Zendaya is forcing a smile and trying to look cool and collected. She’s typically photographed looking sexy and sophisticated, but this is not one of those days. She is clearly on the road and handling a busy tour schedule, and it’s too bad she couldn’t catch a break from these cameras.
