16 Wax Figures That Were Supposed to Be Copies of Celebrities, but Something Went Wrong

Getting a wax figure modeled after you can be a big moment, but sometimes these statues don’t turn out as well as one would hope. But, as you know, we believe that everything has a bright side. In this case, we can lightheartedly laugh at the comical figures that become even funnier once you compare them to how their celebrity counterparts actually look in real life.

Did you know that another actress played the iconic role of Lara Croft? And she did it brilliantly!

By the way, Tom Cruise has changed so much during his career that the difference between these images will seem a trifle to you.

We have no doubt that the star is not too upset about her inaccurate copy. She’s a role model for how to respond to trouble in life.

Bonus: Ariana Grande commented on the bad wax figure modeled after her.


When Ariana Grande’s wax figure was revealed to the public, it was criticized by fans for looking deformed and not even close to the singer’s likeness. Grande herself didn’t stay silent, as she commented on her Instagram post, “I just wanna talk,” meaning that she was going to punch someone (it was a joke, of course). The ability to laugh at herself is one of the reasons why Ariana is so beloved by the public.
