19 Celebrity Passport Photos: Familiar Faces From New Angles

wall of fame

In a way, we interact with famous people on a daily basis by leaving comments under their posts on Instagram, checking out their best films and TV shows, celebrating their successes in sports or politics (or both), listening to them nailing their vocal parts in the internationally-acclaimed albums and passionately reading what they share with us, one page after another.

For many, it seems like big-timers live in some other world. There’s some truth in it, but it doesn’t mean celebrities don’t do the things we all do.

For example, they need documents to travel, too. Therefore, each renowned performer sports a passport photo on his or her identification papers. Let’s check these out and look at the stars closest to us – the UK’s most prominent people.
