Cameos are so fun, right? And occasionally cameos just star the star as themselves. Sometimes whole movies star the star as themselves (ie, Being John Malkovich) but it's always really fun to see a celebrity poke fun at themselves on the big screen.

u/Netwinn asked Reddit for some of their favorites:

Not a movie, but Alex Trebek (in a fake mustache) as a government agent who looks "incredibly like Alex Trebek" was a pretty good laugh in one of the funniest episodes of The X-Files.

I really liked Michael Cera in This Is the End.

Your home should be sanctuary, which is to say that we hope that nothing bad ever happens once we move in. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out that way, and sometimes things happen that unnerve the hell out of us.

Is there anything more creepy than being alone at home... only to get the feeling that you're not alone at all? What if you were being watched?! It's the stuff of nightmares, isn't it? And I haven't even touched on the possibility of paranormal activity yet...

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.

"What's an 'oh sh*t' moment where you realised you've been doing something the wrong way for years?"
