One time my friends and I were walking around Times Square in New York City. Suddenly, one of my friends stopped and looked stunned. I asked her what was going on. She responded: “You are not going to believe it but Samuel Jackson is in front of that building over there. People are even asking for his autograph”. I didn’t want to be mean because she was really excited. However, I had to tell her: “Hmm, that is a statue, actually a wax statue”. She didn’t believe me and ran towards the crowd taking their pictures with “Samuel Jackson”. She was heartbroken when she realized it was “really” a statue. It was just bringing attention to the Madame Tussaud Wax Museum.
My friend got really confused by the statue. Now, I want to ask you. Do you think wax statues look real? Have you visited this type of museum?
Last year, I had the opportunity to visit the Madame Tussaud Museum in Las Vegas (in the Venetian). Normally, I wouldn’t visit this type of attraction due to its high price. Las time I was in Sin City, I bought a Power Pass Card which includes the entrance to most of the attractions in The Strip. So, lucky me, I decided to pay a visit to all the stars in the museum (and have pictures with them, ahem!!).
Ok, so let’s have some fun. I have posted 20 pictures of some of the famous characters represented in the museum. Which ones do you find realistic? Which ones don’t even resemble a bit the real person?
I will include my opinion before each picture.
Brad and Angelina
Look real but there is something missing.
To me, the statue looks realistic. This is one of my favorites.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
Yes, it looks real. They captured his characteristic facial expressions pretty well.
Looks real, maybe a little younger than he really is nowadays.
Another one of my favorites. Super close to how she really looks.
I don’t know.
He is missing something.
Seriously, they did Gaga a favor. Too pretty to be her. How does she look anyway?
Not sure if this is J. Lo or Beyonce
Looks real but Gwen Stephanie will be mortified if she looks at this. Not her present posh look.
Oh, yes. Even the teeth resemble her.
The body, yes. The face, no.
Where is the gray hair?
What is your favorite star? Do you think I can fool some of my friends? Let me know in the comments section below.
