We are all human. Humans are required to feel different emotions (good and bad) at different times; love, joy, hate, disgust, surprise, trust, name it! These emotions define our lives so much that we have found ways to deal with them. We invented topics like emotional quotient, commonly known as emotional intelligence, to help us manage our relationships with each other. Basically, these emotions are what make us truly human.
More often than not, when someone reaches fame, we tend to forget about them. We put them on a pedestal and forget that they have thoughts and feelings just like us. Celebrities are human too, and like us, they have these feelings. It’s common for us to be jealous of celebrities, but do they give each other a green eye? Whether the incidences below are one-off moments of light or a constant craving, here are a few times celebrities have admitted to being jealous of each other:
ten Ed Sheeran
The British singer has made a name for himself. He’s sold shows, performed in stadiums, and even did the ultimate wedding song with the one and only Queen, Beyonce. With the success he’s racked up, it came as a shock when Ed Sheeran, speaking to the DPA news agency, said he didn’t attend festivals because he felt envious of other artists. : “I’m just thinking, ‘Oh man, I wanna be up there,’ he says. Coincidentally, one of the songs Ed Sheeran wishes he had written is Jealous by Labyrinth.
9 Emma Stone
In one Vanity Fair interview, Emma Stone revealed that she feels envy towards Jennifer Lawrence. She was intimidated by the Hunger games talent of the actress, despite their close friendship. About the way she handled this, she said, in part, “I remembered that we were completely different, and there was room for everyone.”
8 Gayle king
Oprah and Gayle King have served their best friend’s goals for ages. The reason their friendship has lasted so long, according to Oprah, is that Gayle is happy with her life. Gayle King admitted, however, that the only time she felt any envy towards Oprah was when she was on stage, spending the time of her life with singer legend Tina Turner.
7 Jada Pinkett-Smith
On an episode of Discussion on the red table, Jada Pinkett, while speaking to brother Caleeb Pinkett, confessed to being jealous of the relationship between her daughter Willow Smith and her father Will. Jada and Caleeb, who grew up in Baltimore, had no father figures in their lives. Will Smith previously revealed that Willow Smith received the best of her parenting skills. It’s understandable why Jada would feel envious, given that her relationship with her father Robsol Pinkett was not so rosy.
6 Gabrielle Union
When Gabrielle Union received a Fearless and Fierce award at the 2013 Black Women in Hollywood Lunch, everything was glitter and gold until it was time for a speech. When she was done, the jaws dropped. Gabrielle Union possessed a mean girl character that she had worn over the years, reveling in the bad press aimed at her sister actresses. It was the intervention of her personal trainer AJ Johnson that led her to be a supportive and well-meaning person.
5 Amy schumer
On an episode of Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls, 1 Keith, actress Amy Schumer revealed that years ago, when she was still dating, she envied Whitney Cummings who had everything going on at the time.

The rest, as they say, is history.
4 Will smith
In an interview with The breakfast club, The prince of Bel-Air star, Willard ‘Will’ Smith has revealed he’s jealous of the close bond his wife, Jada, shares with hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur.

3 Kevin hart
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Kevin Hart admitted to being a little envious of his friend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Danny DeVito.

2 Jimmy fallon
When Jennifer Aniston had an interview with Jimmy Fallon on Tonight’s show, the host had a few words for her. Jimmy was a little angry that Jennifer was on tour with “the other Jimmy” (Kimmel), and seemed to be having a lot of fun. “I’d be fun on vacation,” he said, trying to convince her to let him go. Contrary to Fallon’s idea of a vacation, Jen revealed that the previous vacation had been more arts and crafts and less champagne.
1 Robin thicke
“Blurred Lines” was the 2013 hit that everyone loved to dance to, despite the provocative visuals that accompanied it. It made so much profit that the family of the late Marvin Gaye took legal action for a piece of the pie. During the copyright infringement brawl, Robin Thicke, in a deposition, admitted to having too much credit for the song. “The biggest hit of my career was written and produced by someone else (Pharrell Williams), and I wanted some of the credit.” He said.
