Wikipedia's Most Random and Unflattering Celebrity Photos: An ONTD Original!

Generally speaking, celebrities are stunningly beautiful people -- or at least acceptably attractive people lit just right and caked in enough makeup to convince us that they're stunningly beautiful. When you're a public figure in the entertainment industry, constantly looking like a Greek deity is an ever-present job requirement.

So how does Wikipedia consistently manage to represent supermodels, famous actresses and musicians with the worst photos imaginable? Is it part of the guidelines or something? Are the editors just jealous and bitter because their site relies on obnoxious guilt-tripping banner ads to generate revenue while celebs are laughing all the way to the bank? I don't know! What I do know is that, whether they've low-quality Youtube stills, low-angle shots from Comic-Con panels or just terrible red carpet pics, these photos are seriously bad.
