We may think we know what our favorite celebrities are like because of all the films and interviews we’ve seen with them, but the truth is we might know nothing at all. That’s why Shutterstock staff photographer Andrew H. Walker decided to show how some of A-listers change their behavior in the public eye.

While at the Toronto Film Festival, Walker asked 51 celebrities to pose for a double portrait. One side of the portrait was supposed to demonstrate how they carry themselves in public, while the other one had to reveal their true selves.

We’ve gathered 30 of our favorite diptychs for you to have a look! Try to guess which side of a portrait represents the public side of a celebrity, and which one shows the private face. The answer is not always obvious!

“In a bigger sense, I think the project spoke to actors in general,” Walker told the Daily Mail. “For them it’s a constant struggle to figure out how they live their life outwardly and inwardly at the same time – and how they rectify those two places.”
