Before leaving on a jet plane to your exotic beach vacation or your business trip to the West Coast, you must pass through airport security.
Take off your shoes. Take your laptop out of your bag and place it in a plastic bin. Remove jewelry and any loose change you have in your pockets. Now walk through the detector, and if you’re lucky it won’t beep, prompting for an additional search by a TSA agent.
It’s a hassle, but everyone goes through the same process – even celebrities (you see, they really are just like us.)
A Tumblr blog appropriately titled Celebrities vs. the TSA chronicles that uncomfortable moment when celebrities have to pass through security like us common folk. Is it borderline intrusive and makes you feel like the paparazzi? Sure. Does it suck you in and before you know you've spent 45 minutes looking at celebrities passing through metal detectors? Absolutely.
Not only does this blog give us a glimpse of who looks as sloppy as we do when they travel (hooray for sweatpants and oversized T-shirts), but it also a way of seeing who travels the most. Hint: There are a lot of photos of the Kardashians and the guys of One Direction. Most photos seem to be taken at LAX or other California airports.
Here are some photos for your enjoyment. To view more, visit Celebrities vs. the TSA.
