A prim and proper Rihanna, Jennifer Aniston's mugshot and an obese Johnny Depp... the A-list as you've never imagined

By J J Anisiobi and Anthony Goodridge

They are revered for their good looks and superb style of dress almost more than their talent as entertainers.

But what would the world's most famous faces look like if they didn't have the best make-up artists and stylists that money can buy?

Thanks to the handy work of one artist called Danny Evans, we now know exactly what a number of stars including Rihanna, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston would look like if they were average Joes.

Scrub down: Rihanna doesn't seem so glamorous without her outrageous style in this photo-shopped picture of the Bajan-born star

The shock factor: The always trim Jennifer Aniston would likely be a bit larger if she didn't have personal chefs and trainers

In an age where quick fix diets, personal chefs and Botox keep the beautiful looking radiant, New York artist Danny has stripped them back to humdrum.

As a platinum selling pop star Rihanna is one of the most photographed women in the world, but without her outrageous dress sense she looks bland.

Full-time artist Danny takes celebs and 'presents them as duller versions of themselves - maybe a little frumpier, heftier or a little plainer.'

Material girl: If Madonna aged without her tough exercise regime she may be less toned and more saggy

Born to be bad: Heartthrob Johnny Depp still has his facial hair but he has also gained a few pounds too

The other half: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie do not look a million miles away from their normal appearance but their style is lacking

He told the MailOnline: 'Basically just stripping away their cool personas I always find it interesting to see what's left after the Hollywood has been scrubbed off.

'My intention wasn't necessarily to age them, but to strip them of their 'Hollywood' facade. That has more or less been my general goal with this series all along.'

The talented Danny has transformed the faces of some heavyweight names from the big screen and turned heartthrob Johnny Depp into a obese biker.

A sight for sore eyes: Miley Cyrus might decide to keep her current hairstyle rather than opting for a quiff

The cool: Jay-Z and Beyoncé have lost their edge as they have been transformed into a nerdy married couple

He also showed what Madonna could potentially look like if she aged naturally and dressed more appropriately for her age.

His fascination with celebrities began back in 2006 when socialite Paris Hilton was at her peak of popularity.

He said: 'I created the Planet Hiltron series in 2006. At that time, Paris Hilton's mug was all over the place. It was inescapable - magazines, television, the internet, everywhere.

Grey star: Gwyneth Paltrow has aged graciously and still looks pretty with a silver bob

Transformers: Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas and John Travolta also got the special treatment from New York artists Danny Evans

The simple life: Nicole Richie is definitely lacking her Hollywood style in the altered image of her

'So, I started a Myspace page satirizing her overexposure. At first I only focused on Paris, putting her face on any random image: Paris as Einstein, Paris as Ginger Rogers, Paris as a canary.'

No one is safe from his smart work and two of the planets most glamorous couples have been made to look distinctively average.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie look scruffy and disheveled while Beyoncé and her rapper husband Jay-Z both got transformed into a geeky looking married couple.
