Celebrities: they are like us. They will do anything for free stuff.
In case you didn’t know, at many awards shows and events, celebrities have the opportunity to visit a suite of “gifts.” In these giveaway suites, celebrities can get free shit, usually in exchange for a photo with a product.
Because I’m obsessed with this kind of celebrity photos, here are some of my favorite photos of celebrities posing with shit so they can get it for free specifically from the early 2000s:
