One celebrity whose presence on this list is not a surprise is singer Lady Gaga. Not because she has anything to be insecure about – but just because she’s been so open about her imperfections and sense of otherness throughout her career.
Gaga said that her classmates used to tease her for wanting to be like Boy George when she was in high school, sharing that it made her feel like a freak. But Gaga’s somewhat tormented background is exactly what makes her such a great artist and person, wanting to allow her fans to be exactly who they are.
We really want to believe Chris Evans for being insecure about his level of attractiveness, but it's just so hard to do! According to the drop-dead-gorgeous actor, he battles insecurities on a regular basis, like many other actors (and, well, people, for that matter).
Evans says that he finds it hard to feel like an attractive man standing next to his two Avengers co-stars, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. Well, we get it; but still.
Like many of the stars on this list, Katy Perry carries around some insecurities about her body that, as it seems, tend to come with fame. When you spend most of your time in the spotlight and are being photographed constantly, it's pretty hard to dodge those types of issues.
But Perry owns her body, saying that she's aware of her curviness; and tries her best to embrace it and be a role model for others. The pop singer says staying relatable keeps her sane as a celebrity, and we're all for that.
We think Jordin Sparks is perfect just the way she is (cue in Bronu Mars), but it seems that she still has a way to go before she can agree on that. The American Idol winner and successful R&B singer says she's still coping with insecurities about her body but is learning to love it more and more as the years go by.
According to Sparks, her trick is to choose outfits that stress her curves and her waist, which are the parts she loves most about her body. Go Jordin!
Sometimes, starring in successful films doesn't make one feel like a better actor or actress; ironically enough, it might actually make them feel incompetent. That's exactly what happened to Amy Adams after participating in "Catch Me if You Can".
Adamas said that she was always insecure, but after the movie, her insecurity about her acting reached a whole new level. She felt like she wasn't enough, and like she couldn't be the actress people expected her to be. Comparing herself to stars like Sean Penn and Meryl Streep who were sitting next to her at the Oscars freaked her out.
