40 Funniest Celebrity Instagram Posts of 2018

Proof that your favorite celebrities aren't just funny on screen.

​Have you ever followed a celebrity on Instagram and, when their photos and videos start popping up in your feed, it almost feels like you and they are besties? It sounds bonkers, we know, but it's part of what makes social media so addictive. You get to know a famous person when they're off the clock, just being themselves and trying to make you laugh. There's a big difference between watching the stars you love get silly on the big screen or on TV—when it's in their financial best interests to to be hilarious—and watching them do it in their own home, when it's recorded on their cell phones and they very well might be wearing sweatpants.

So, without further ado, here are 40 of our favorite Instagram posts from the past year, which are brilliantly funny not in spite of their informality, but in many cases because of it. And for more A-lister social media hilarity, check out ​40 Funniest Celebrity Tweets of 2018.

funny celebrity instagrams

"I'm supposed to be more active on social media- so in my 15th attempt, this is the best I've got- please go see my movie #overboardmovie- I love you"

She's such a good actress, we almost believed this was a real pose and Faris was seriously attempting to seem more casual and approachable. It's like the worst Facebook profile photo of that old friend you haven't seen since high school… except meant ironically.

The Backstreet Boys as… the Spice Girls?

funny celebrity instagrams

"Celebrating all of the girl power that's kept us going for 25 years. #SpiceBoys #BSBCruise2018"

funny celebrity instagrams

"The #dadbest likes big butt books and fixin kids toyz."

funny celebrity instagrams

"Safe to say whoever wins the AMA for fav pop/rock album will be an artist who writes songs about love and heartbreak. YOU get to decide who it'll be. Vote at the link in my bio @AMAs" [Video here]

All that huffing and puffing makes us agree with Taylor, strumming a guitar doesn't count as cardio

Amy Sedaris cooks a meatloaf with eyes and teeth.

funny celebrity instagrams

"@meatguys #falseteeth #greatidea"

funny celebrity instagrams

"My boyfriend Randy call this my Mrs. Roper look…he loves knocking on my door."

Sarah Silverman may or may not be feeling nauseous.

funny celebrity instagrams

"2 Qs: 10 am i gonna vomit 2) am i gonna vomit in this outfit"

Does she need to throw up? And if so, will it happen in this ridiculous workout outfit that seems like she's posing for a Wheaties cereal box? We have so many questions.

Nathan Fillion has lost his hat.

funny celebrity instagrams

Dear @aircanada, I left a hat on Flight 559 on Thursday night. This hat. In front of 3C under the chair. It is my favorite hat. I filled out the forms, I prayed to the hat gods, I got it in Belgium. Hear my plea. Hat, if you can hear me, I'll never give up on you."

Has there ever been a more heartfelt, emotional plea than the Firefly star writing, "Hat, if you can hear me, I'll never give up on you"?

John Mayer on the importance of self-belief, and accessorizing.

Olivia Munn remembers the Christmas tree fence of her youth.

funny celebrity instagrams

#fbf to the weird fence around the Christmas tree our parents used to keep us from touched the presents even though we never would've dared because my super scary Tiger Mom had supersonic hearing and could hear if we even breathed on an ornament. Long story short, there was a lot of trust in the family."

We're not sure if this is funny or sad. Okay, it's mostly funny. Who puts a fence around a Christmas tree to keep kids from touching the ornament? Olivia Munn's parents, apparently.

Brad Paisley shows us how to "cry pretty."

funny celebrity instagrams

"Can't cry pretty? We'll just see about that. I beg to differ – @carrieunderwoord … I can #crypretty" [Video here]

We don't have any idea what he's talking about either. But the Daily Show host manspreading in an all-white outfit and talking gibberish is our happy place.

funny celebrity instagrams

"When you and your date look like a full on Britney tribute show…"

We like honey well enough, but after viewing Garner's footage of raw honey with the "ooooh yeeeeah" song from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, we're suddenly craving it in really unfamiliar ways.

Ellie Kemper shows off a PB&J made by Dad.

funny celebrity instagrams

"If there's a better meal than the PB&J your dad packs for you for your airplane trip, I haven't found it yet. #NotAnAd"

With all the food-gramming we see of elaborate, high-end dishes, it's refreshing to see someone celebrate a timeless culinary classic. Kudos to the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star for reminding us that nothing beats a sandwich made by Dad. (Also, the #NotAnAd hashtag had us rolling.)

Josh Groban shows off some possible Tony Award co-host outfits.

funny celebrity instagrams

Mark Ruffalo isn't the only incredible Hulk.

funny celebrity instagrams
