Popular Celebrities Who Are Nearly Unrecognizable in Their Mug Shots

Celebrities don’t want to get arrested and have their mug shots shared with millions of people — especially when the photos aren’t very flattering. Sometimes, they’re so bad that we barely recognize the famous faces in the shots and other times, the stars can only hope we don’t recognize them.

Click through to see these celebs at their worst, including the shocking photos of one gorgeous actress (page 8) and ’80s heartthrob (page 12).

Of course, we couldn’t create a list of celebrity mug shots without including one of the most infamous of all time. Nick Nolte’s 2002 photo from his arrest on suspicion of drunk driving was so shocking, it still gets people talking today.

The Golden Globe winner later said of the shot that he looked “like an asylum inmate out for a lark … People magazine had named me the Sexiest Man Alive, and now … I looked to all the world like a madman.”
