2 Chicks, 1 Hoff

Dressed to impress in a pink and white tux, David Hasselhoff posed with the Easter Bunny and two fluffy young fowls at the Los Angeles premiere of Hop, in which he makes a cameo this weekend.

One of These Things Is Not Like the Others

Nickelodeon’s ‘90s cartoon Rugrats gave babies with massive heads and tiny necks a platform to speak their minds. Toward the end of its 13-year run, Nickelodeon released a 2003 crossover film, which combined Rugrats and its Nutty Professor-inspired series The Wild Thornberries. Action star Bruce Willis lent his voice to a talking dog in the movie and shared a moment with redhead Chuckie Finster at the Hollywood premiere. Though Chuckie was notoriously the most fearful of the toddler troupe, could Willis be the one in need of a diaper change?

Smile and Say Aniston

The only person who appears to be more uncomfortable than Tiny Fey with Megamind at the animated feature’s 2010 New York premiere is Brad Pitt. Hollywood’s biggest star voiced Metro Man—the film’s conceited superhero and titular character’s archenemy. But Pitt tried to distance himself from the characters in spandex as he stood in a corner in his completely black ensemble—from his newsboy cap to his fingerless gloves. Interestingly enough, Pitt never expressed shame about his 1998 film Meet Joe Black.

Forgetting Katy Perry

Russell Brand’s graphic sense of humor made its way onto the yellow carpet at the London premiere of Despicable Me in October 2010. Considering this pose with one of movie’s minuscule “minions” was taken just two weeks before Brand wed pop star Katy Perry, the comedian—who lent his voice to the film—may have some explaining to do.

The Lion in the Room

Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, and David Schwimmer stepped onto the green carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa in October 2008. The seasoned stars of the animated sequel learned how difficult it is to remain straight-faced when there is someone in a giant, plush lion suit with a furrowed brow towering behind you.

Battle of the Bulge

A glowing Angelina Jolie showed off her twin-bearing belly at the Hollywood premiere of Kung Fu Panda in June 2008. When her co-star Jack Black started to compare his un-pregnant stomach to her expecting bulge, the life-size Panda judged the impromptu bump contest.

Take Your Filthy Paw Off Me

Disneyland’s grand opening of the “Monster's Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!” ride in 2006 brought out the Midnight Cowboy himself, Jon Voight. As Pixar’s Sulley—a fuzzy-wuzzy blue creature—rested his paw on his shoulder, the Oscar-winning actor barely mustered a grin. Like the monster’s cyclopean best friend Mike Wazowski, Voight kept his eye on Sulley.

This Is No Picnic

The man credited with bringing sexy back and making Sean Parker look good in The Social Network reverted back to his *NSYNC days in 2010.  In last year’s animated Yogi Bear reboot, Justin Timberlake voiced the brown bear’s sidekick, Boo Boo. Interestingly enough, his character’s name doubles as an infantile term for a mistake or injury, much like the failed film proved to be for Timberlake’s acting résumé. Aviators do not make it go away.

A Non-Grenade Free Zone

Cameron Diaz voiced princess-turned-ogre Fiona in all four films in the Shrek franchise. While one would assume Diaz’s most uncomfortable moment at the London premiere of Shrek the Third was when she crossed paths with ex-boyfriend and Shrek co-star Justin Timberlake, taking this shot with a life-size ogre may have be worse. Diaz appears to be praying the green grenade—as the Jersey Shore cast would call him—stay far far away from her Chanel gown.

Missing the Spandex Memo

Actor Jason Lee apparently did not know that denim was no longer the preferred pant material at the 2004 premiere of The Incredibles.

You Know What It Is… Black & Yellow

At the animated premiere of Bee Movie in Los Angeles in October 2007, comedian Jerry Seinfeld and actress Renée Zellweger appeared to argue over who was having a worse time smiling for the camera next to an anthropomorphic insect.

Everybody Loves Rodents

The husky-sounding younger brother from Everybody Loves Raymond returned to his earlier voice acting roots in the 2007 film Ratatouille. At the film’s Hollywood premiere, Brad Garrett towered above the rat stars, who are only slightly larger than the ones that scamper in the New York City subway.

Best Lei’d Plan

After numerous tough guy turns in Mission: Impossible, Con Air, Pulp Fiction, and more, actor Ving Rhames decided to change up his image and reach another audience. In the 2002 film Lilo & Stitch, he voiced Shaft look-a-like Cobra Bubbles, a CIA agent-cum-social worker. It didn’t really seem to soften his public perception, but that “We Love Daddy” baseball cap could help.

M-I-C the Gum in My Mouth, Y’All?

Britney Spears reverted to her tween days on the set of Mickey Mouse Club at the Hollywood premiere of Toy Story 3 in June 2010.  The reigning princess of pop seemed shocked to see how tall Buzz and Woody had gotten since the 1999 sequel, revealing her mouth full of Bubble Yum to the cameras.
