20 Times Celebrities *Totally* Knew the Paps Were Waiting Outside

Not saying they called them...

As a famous person, your job description would include looking semi-presentable anytime you step outside, lest the paparazzi catch you unprepared and sell the subsequent photos as evidence of your impending breakdown.

The "This Old Thing?"

These are the ones who understand the public's need for pageantry—or some underboob. Repeat offender Jamie Chung, for example, comes armed with props and maybe even a portable wind machine so that a "casual" "stroll" "around her neighborhood" can become a Kohl's ad at less than a moment's notice.
