15 Stars Who Just Got Lucky And Manipulated Their Way Up

By KK Angus, 16 March 2018


From Jennifer Aniston to Kristen Stewart, not all Hollywood stars deserve to be where they are now. Not only are some A-listers bad at acting, singing or modelling, but they've made a fortune out of just being good-looking or being a social media celebrity. In fact, nobody calls them out for being mediocre at their jobs or never improving.

So who are the stars who've manipulated the audiences and the showbiz industry?

1Jennifer Lawrence


Jennifer entered Hollywood at a time when there was no one who could get by just being awkward or tomboyish. Everybody was too busy being perfect and Jennifer stood out as a rebel as she did not adhere by rules. She made a statement with her loud mouth and by being the 'cool relatable girl.' But can she really act? She got an Oscar for a solidly mediocre performance in Silver Lining Playbook and once you get an Oscar, nobody really questions your skills. Being good looking obviously helped her star status but Jennifer has sure fooled her audiences.

2Sylvester Stallone


Sylvester Stallone might be a total superstar and an icon for being so fit in his '60s. But that is most likely his only achievement. He built a great physique and did the Rocky films and got super famous. And nobody really noticed that he is a truly bad actor. And now four decades later he is still a major star getting films but without any real calibre.

3Brad Pitt


Brad Pitt is not a bad actor per se, but he is average at best. With directors like Quentin Tarantino he makes a solid effort and gets by, but by no means does he deserve the huge stardom that he has acquired. Brad came into the industry as the young blonde looker who has a penchant for unusual roles. He got tons of offers and has been a part of two power couples in the last twenty years but he kind of just got superbly lucky.

4Jennifer Aniston


A lot of people don't take Jennifer Aniston seriously as an actor as they think she's just playing herself in most of her movies and shows. She has only played the upstart, chic city girl from Friends to every one of her movies. And that's who she is, so she has been incredibly successful owing to her looks and timing in the industry.

5Bella Hadid


She is one of the biggest supermodels in the world right now and yet doesn't have a perfect body, has had cosmetic surgeries and has super rich parents. Plus she got a million Instagram followers before she had even begun modelling. Many models believe Bella and her sister Gigi both got through into the fashion industry on the steam of their parents who are obviously influential. At least Gigi has stuck to her natural looks, whereas Bella's success seems pretty much bought.
