Oh no, just when everything seemed to be going ok, something much better has just happened to someone else. But that’s ok, it’s good to be happy for someone else when they get the good fortune they deserve, right? Well, according to these photos, that’s not the way some people see it. If only they could hide their horror. Scroll down to see the moments when the green-eyed monster escaped and made it’s feelings too obvious to miss!
Everyone loves an ice cream
Aw man, this kid’s day isn’t going well at all. Just when he thought it was all good with the sun shining and he’s out for a stroll, he comes across these two lucky girls enjoying their ice cream. Sometimes life just isn’t fair. All he wants is to grab his own cone and join in, and the worst bit is these two gals don’t even know he’s there. Aw shucks, time to go home to veggies again.
The legendary actress Jayne Mansfield had a flair for self-promotion that, ahem, made the most of her assets. Known for what is now called a ‘wardrobe malfunction’, the star made the most of her invite to another superstar’s party, the beautiful Sophia Loren. Afterwards Sophia made her displeasure known, claiming Jayne knew exactly what she was doing. However, if ever a picture tells a story better than words ever could, then this is that picture.
Eyes this way
We’ve all been in this poor guy’s situation. You know your partner is the only one for you, but then there are beautiful people all over the place that can sometimes take your attention to a place it shouldn’t be. It’s great to have a partner like in this photo though, happy to have a giggle about her boyfriend’s wandering eyes, safe in the knowledge they’ll be back on her in an instant. Sometimes things are just too darn cute.
Man’s best friend?
He loves you, you love him, but there’s plenty to go around for everyone, especially when they’re as cute as this adorable little kitten. This little girl is obviously besotted with the fluffy little fella, but the look on her dog’s face says that he’s the one used to getting all her attention. Cheer up big fella, we’re sure she’ll be back to stroking you in no time. In the meantime you make a seriously adorable photo.
No jealousy on set?
Modern Family stars Julie Bowen and Sophia Vergara seem to get on very well, but this picture at dinner suggests that maybe Julie is a little envious of some of Sophia’s star qualities. Julie is without doubt a beautiful woman herself, but Sophia is hard to ignore, having a vibrant Latin personality and some assets that would fill out any dress. A bit like Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield, but maybe without as much hostility.
Yes ladies, this is my dog
It’s one of the great mysteries of life, why do women automatically flock to a man who has a dog? We might never know but this guy is certainly pleased he gave a home to this little ONE. While he’s looking a bit too smug to notice, it looks like his friend in the background may be considering a purchase of his own soon. Happily for these boys it looks like there are plenty of girls to share the attention with. Lucky dogs!
We have it all?
From the outside it seems like The Spring Breakers stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez have it all – good careers, lots of money, and to boot they’re gorgeous looking women. But in this interview it seems they may have a touch of jealousy when it comes to their co-star Ashley Benson. The way Vanessa is looking at Ashely’s cleavage suggests she may wish she filled out her own dress a little more. While not quite as obvious, Selena looks like she’s thinking the same thing.
Can I change my order?
This lady seems to have made a hasty decision with her choice of dinner. Possibly congratulating herself on choosing the healthy option, imagine her dismay when the waiter appears with a big piece of cake for the table right next to her. This gentleman looks delighted with his dessert and probably won’t be sharing. It’s safe to assume the lady in question will be calling the waiter over again soon, and who can blame her?
Hey, I’m here too!
Babies need constant attention, lots of hugs and kisses and just knowing you’re there to care for them, feed and change them. The incredible bond between a parent and child is something that loves to be nurtured and brings a warm feeling to both. However, woe betide the parent who dares to take a few minutes for themselves. If you need convincing, then take a look at the displeasure on this baby’s face when his parents lean in for a kiss.
Don’t leave me out
Girls just wanna have fun. That’s what these two seem to be doing while getting their picture taken at a wedding. It appears they forgot someone though, and she’s not happy. It’s always best when having a photo taken with friends to make sure all your friends are actually in the photo. When this angry young woman in a blue dress was left out, not only did she decide to take her rightful place in the photo, but she let them know she was mad!
I caught one too
Ah the joy of the open sea, of going out into nature and catching a fish to cook for your dinner that same night. Or even just to experience the thrill of the chase before returning your catch to the ocean. At least that’s how we all think about fishing before we’ve left the harbour. Spare a thought for this poor chap who’s experiencing the reality of catching a tiddler while his friend catches the big one.
I’m right beside you
We’ve already seen how the attention of us mere mortals can be distracted by a beautiful woman, and now here’s proof that even superstars like soccer hero David Beckham can fall foul of the same problem. Wife and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham isn’t trying to hide her displeasure at David clearly staring at the cheerleaders during a basketball game. Perhaps David will be better getting a taxi home and sleeping on the sofa tonight.
Not happy for you bro
It seems like these two buddies have gone to some sort of cosplay conference and the guy in the background intended for them to spend the day together. However, his lucky friend in the foreground has bumped into a lady and wants to get to know her. Not only is his friend not happy for him, but his face, pose and general demeanour suggest he is actively not amused and would like them to resume their fun day out again right now.
If only I’d known there was ice cream
No doubt initially delighted he would be getting a lovely popsicle on a hot day, this poor chap is now reconsidering his choice. His friend has a huge scoop of delicious looking ice cream while he’ll now have to make do with his less impressive looking treat. You have to feel for the little man, especially as his friend seems to be enjoying her choice so much. Ah well, it’s a good lesson that next time he needs to ask for the ice cream.
Even superstars get jealous
Few would argue that pop icon Rihanna is virtually flawless in her beauty and should have no reason to feel self-conscious around anyone. This photo tells a different story as she stares at the ample chest of fellow musician Nicki Minaj. Now most would agree that Nicki certainly is beautiful and has a body most women would love to have, but surely RiRi should be glad to look as stunning as she does, rather than feeling she needs Nicki’s assets as well.
We all like to win and losing doesn’t feel good, but most of us can let it go and not let it ruin our whole day. When you’re a professional tennis player and your career depends on winning, maybe it’s not quite as easy to let go. Certainly this picture of Andy Murray, after losing to rival Novak Djokovic in the 2016 Australian Open Final, suggests it’s going to take more than a day to get over this loss.
I want a cuddle too
They welcome us as soon as we come in the door and are always happy to see us. Is it so much to ask that we spend every waking minute lavishing attention on them? This dog doesn’t seem to think so and is keen to break up the hug it’s owner is giving someone else. To be fair, this cuddly little one is so cute and it’s putting so much effort into leaping as high as it can, it would be impossible not to include them.
Alone and wet
By the way she’s dressed this poor woman looks like she was expecting a nice day out to watch a sporting event. Instead she’s sitting alone in the pouring rain. To make matters worse there’s a happy couple sharing an umbrella and tucking in to a lovely meal together. We don’t need to see her face to guess that’s it probably not a happy one. Hopefully this picture was taken before her own umbrella buddy came back with dinner for two.
It’s not easy when you’ve been the center of attention and then someone comes along to steal your thunder. Of course it’s not really like that when a new sibling comes along and your parents love you both equally. It’s not easy to see it that way though while the new arrival is getting all the attention, while your parents forget to mention that they love you too. Hopefully this little chap will understand and join in the fun with his new sibling.
We feel for this guy, the awkward situation of being there when your friend and his girlfriend are getting on like, well, boyfriend and girlfriend. You’re part of the group but how quickly everything feels wrong when they start getting all smoochy and you’re left sitting there trying to think of something to do that doesn’t involve being there. If they stop kissing for long enough maybe he could ask her if she has a friend?
Annoyed about something
When Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux were still a couple, the media were happy to write countless stories about their problems and portray Jen as always unlucky in love. Now although we’re well used to the media being a bit wide of the mark at times when it comes to Hollywood gossip, there seems to be something going on in this picture. Justin looks like he’s just talking to a friend, but Jen’s sideways look would suggest she’s not happy, perhaps with being ignored?
I’d like that too
Food choices get better as you get older, well, as long as you still have all your teeth. Unfortunately for this toddler, his sister is a few years older than him and has moved away from soft, mushy food on to things that are much more appetising. A nice juicy hamburger is enough to turn his attention away from his own food and to stare disconsolately at his sister as she tucks into her meal. Hopefully nap times and no school make up for his lack of meaty food.
This one isn’t so obvious, but if you look into the shadows you’ll see someone who’s feeling more than a little left out. While her friends are having a ball in the bathroom, laughing and taking selfies to capture the good times, this poor girl obviously hasn’t been included and her face and body language tell the story. It’s easy to miss someone out when everyone’s just having fun, but hopefully this lady will be asked to join in the laughs next time round.
Self-proclaimed ‘The Greatest’ Kanye West, and pop icon Taylor Swift have had an uneasy relationship ever since he upstaged her at the Grammy Awards when she won. Not at all helped by Kanye then mentioning her in one of his songs with some pretty explicit lyrics. However, there have been rumours his wife Kim Kardashian-West is slightly jealous of Taylor, and her look in this photo suggests there may be some truth to the gossip swirling around Tinseltown.
Tough act to follow
This kid may be setting his standards a little too high. Not many would try to follow in the footsteps of legendary Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, but he’s willing to give it a shot. To make things even more difficult he seems to have picked a poster of Arnie in his hey-day as a successful bodybuilder. You’ve got to give him credit for effort, and you can tell he’s even seeing some results. However, maybe he could ‘terminate’ the idea of reaching such lofty heights.
No need to be jealous of me
It’s common for pets to be jealous of one another, after all, everyone wants to be the one getting the attention and all those lovely cuddles. Sometimes it can be funny to watch a cat take the hump and storm off, or for another dog to try and push in between an owner and another dog so it can get stroked too. But this is seriously funny – the ‘other dog’ this little one is jealous of is just a stuffed toy! It was ripped apart shortly after this photo was taken.
Not the baby anymore
Being the youngest sibling can come with a lot of perks – an older brother to look after you, everyone saying how cute you are and a more relaxed set of rules. It seems this young one is having a hard time welcoming a new sibling who’s taken his spot. What’s worse, his older brother already seems to be doting on the new arrival. Fortunately he’ll soon realise being an older brother is pretty cool too.
Back in 2013, when Hollywood stars Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis first got engaged, they ran into fellow actors Tom Hanks and Christopher McDonald at a basketball game. While admiring the ring, they appear to have given a glimpse to a nearby fan who looks a bit put out. Not one to hold back, Jason had gone big and bought Olivia the two-carat monster. No pressure on the fan’s partner then.
Aw, that perfect family photo, at least that’s what this mother thought she was getting. While the mother had her children beautifully arranged, the older sister was happy to pose for the photographer. What the mother didn’t realise was that her middle daughter had taken exception to her new sibling. Maybe she was just hungry or maybe there’s going to be some serious sibling rivalry in the future. Either way we’re guessing this was a picture that needed taking again.
This lady looks like she’s about to dribble all down the front of herself. The gentleman in front of her looks like he’s in no danger of spilling anything. Spotting him eating a delicious piece of yummy and colourful moist sponge cake seems to be too much for her. To be fair it does look mouthwatering and most of us would probably react the same way. Let’s hope there was a leftover piece for her too.
This dog became famous just by being angry. It seems their owner has got a new girlfriend and they’re out for a walk together. The background looks spectacular and they’ve stopped for a selfie and want the dog to be included. However, the dog is making his feelings clear about who they feel should be on the walk, and the girlfriend definitely isn’t included. There might be a time in the near future the owner needs to make a hard choice.
Don’t get caught staring
Ok, we admit it, Amber Rose is a stunning model who probably turns every head in the street even when she’s just nipping down to the shops. There’s a lesson for us all in this photo though. The woman in the background obviously feels at least a little pang of jealousy towards the star, and unfortunately chose the moment the photo was taken to cast an envious glance in her direction. We suppose she can always say she was in a photo with Amber Rose.
On the bus jealousy
It’s not only the rich and famous that can make us feel a little jealous though, sometimes it’s just some stranger we’ll never even say a word to. This lady was going about her daily business when she happened to be sitting next to a lady who has obviously put a lot of work into her toned gym body. The tight leggings make it pretty hard for her fellow passenger to ignore the results.
Cats need cuddles too
Cats are notoriously fickle and can be all over you one minute and then ignore you for a fortnight the next. It’s probably best not to antagonise your kitten though by playing with their rival for your affections, especially when it’s an adorable puppy. This little one in the background looks more than a little put out by their owner’s behaviour. It could be quite a while before she gets any nice cuddles from her kitty.
Not in harmony
Fifth Harmony burst onto the scene when they won the 2012 edition of The X Factor. The name was somewhat ironic though as it was well known there was more than a little friction between the girls, particularly with now solo artist Camila Cabello. While her bandmate Lauren Jauregui appears to be flirting with a male, Camila is rolling her eyes so hard, we’re surprised they didn’t fall out and roll across the floor.
So happy for you
Is there any competition more brutal than a beauty pageant. Seriously, these girls (and their mothers) have spent their whole lives dreaming of being crowned the winner, and travel all around the country to get their moment in the spotlight. It’s probably not all that surprising then that when they don’t win, it’s not exactly easy to be happy for the actual winner. While we have to give this runner-up credit for trying to look happy, she really won’t be celebrating her rival’s success.
I’m a star too
We’ve already seen how household pets can become jealous when their owner isn’t completely focused on them. Cats and dogs are one thing, but have you ever seen a jealous seal? In this photo one seal is the star of the show, proudly posing with the public, and will no doubt end up in a treasured holiday photo album. As if they are aware of this, their co-star is resting their head, forlornly watching their partner get all the limelight.
We’re not too sure why Sarah Harding seems so unhappy in this photo. One fifth of band Girls Aloud who conquered the charts on many occasions, the blond stunner has a lot to be happy about. As she looks unhappily down at her white dress, in contrast, fellow bandmate Cheryl Cole looks delighted in a matching gown. It’s a bit of speculation on our part, but maybe it’s simply the fact of standing next to the radiant Cheryl. That’d be enough to make any of us jealous.
Taking no chances
When posting images of your life all over social media, it can be natural for others to comment on what’s happening in your picture or even who’s in it with you. Wanting to make sure no other women would even think about trying to steal her man, this lady came up with an innovative way to put any admirers off. Telling people to keep looking while blocking out his image may be seen as sweet, or just a tad over-possessive.
He’s all mine
Continuing along the line of overly-possessive partners, this woman is taking it to a whole new level. Not only has she got him a t-shirt with her face printed all over it, she’s also included a message telling others if they can read it they’re standing too close and that he has a girlfriend. While this will certainly deter any would-be competitors, it might just be the thing that scares her boyfriend into breaking up with her and filing a restraining order.
While some think proposing at sporting events such as a baseball or hockey match can be a bit cringeworthy, some think it’s a beautiful gesture. After all, it takes some guts for your partner to open themselves up and profess their love for you in front of thousands of people. While it seems to have worked out well for this man, his gesture seems to have got another spectator in trouble, with the woman circled seemingly asking her partner why he didn’t do this for her.
It’s my trophy
We might never know if this was fake (as Will Ferrell later tried to claim) or if actress Aubrey Plaza really did storm the stage and try to take his Comedic Genius Award from him at the 2013 MTV Music Awards. It’s claimed Aubrey left the stage seeming a bit intoxicated and dropped her drink on the way back to her seat. Fair play to Will Ferrell for trying to be a gentleman and saying it was a skit. Us, well we’re not so sure.
What do I have to do?
It would probably come as a surprise to most people how many times Leonardo DiCaprio has narrowly missed out on winning an Oscar. After all as one of the greatest actors of his generation, it would be assumed he had won at least a few. However, sometimes the disappointment is too difficult to hide and this image went viral after he lost to Matthew McConaughey in 2014. Thankfully there were happier times ahead for Leo, when he won an Oscar for his role in The Revenant.
There’s two of us you know
When we’re young we love getting all those cuddles and hugs from our parents. Naturally we want their affection, and while as we get older we don’t seek them out as much, as children they mean the world to us. But it can sometimes be tricky for a parent to make sure everyone is getting the same level of affection. Judging by this little boy’s look he thinks it’s definitely his turn for cuddle time.
Only one to go round
Whoever came up with the popular reality television show The Bachelor perhaps didn’t think through just how jealous everyone would be, or probably they did. With just one bachelor to ‘be won’ by 30 women, there was always going to be a lot of tension in the show. This picture from Season 19 shows bachelor Chris Soules very happy with events, while the girls are looking daggers at each other.
Not a party girl
Sometimes it’s hard to fit in. It can even be difficult to decide if you really want to fit in, after all you might have a group of friends who have different interests from you. Take this photo for example. Stuck between wanting to join in with the photo with her friends, and looking very much like she’d rather be somewhere else, this girl couldn’t look less interested in being there and getting ready to party.
I want to be you
You know those models in the magazine who make us all feel so bad, well they’re not just on the catwalk. People who get out and keep fit can also look amazing, and they walk among us. When we do finally get up the energy to go out and better ourselves, unfortunately we can come face to face with these already perfect specimens. This lady is doing her best to get out and get fit, but it’s hard to keep motivated when you’re confronted with a person who looks just like you wish you did.
This is my house
He’s hard to spot but if you look closely you can see perhaps the grumpiest looking cat in the world hiding in the corner. While it’s probably safe to assume he looks grumpy at the best of times, his mood appears to have worsened with the arrival of this cute puppy in the house. If he’s going to compete for attention with this happy little fella it may be time for the cat to work on their attitude, or at least get a happy face it can fake when looking for attention.
Red carpet and crutches
Kristen Stewart is a huge star with riches beyond her dreams, and if that isn’t enough, she’s also absolutely stunning. Jennifer Lawrence is in the same category so it’d be logical to think that they wouldn’t envy anyone. While this may be true most days, Kristen certainly appears a bit put out in this photo. Instead of a glamorous red carpet entrance she’s hobling in on crutches, that might be why she’s giving Jen a none too friendly look.
One is not amused
It’s a long time ago now, but there was a time when Harry was considered the most dashing Royal and his brother William was viewed as a bit old fashioned. While he was dating Kate, William was no doubt aware of this perception and maybe even a bit insecure. Here his gaze is firmly locked on Harry’s hand as he greets Kate. Don’t worry William, it works out great for you.
You need to know the story behind this photo to know that the birthday girl isn’t being rude. Moments earlier her sister tried to steal her big moment by blowing out her candle. Quite rightly protecting her candle, the birthday girl shoves her sister out of her way. There may be a bit of sibling rivalry going on here and maybe her sister will need to watch out on her birthday. We’re sure the buns were shared after.
Did Taylor Swift and Katy Perry strike a friendly pose for the waiting paparazzi or was this just two friends having some fun? As usual the rumour mill went into overdrive when it was suggested that Katy and Taylor might have had a fall-out. As usual though the truth was never really known by the public. Either way, as Katy has since appeared in one of Taylor’s videos it seems all is well between the two.
Not cool bro
It’s fair to say this guy probably didn’t see his gentlemanly act of allowing a woman to sit on his shoulders turning out this way. While she was up there she took the opportunity to kiss his friend, while he’s left to look helplessly on. While this isn’t cool, surely his friend should have at least waited until he was free to walk away rather than making him watch his happy moment. Never let a girl come between you lads.
Apparently this was supposed to be time the blond lady on the left was spending with Kim Kardashian. While she was picturing a pamper day with the star, Kim hadn’t the same plans and instead spent the afternoon being pampered by her makeup artists. The disappointment is obviously too much for the lady who is unhappily staring at the camera, her fun day with Kim in ruins. On the bright side it looks like the makeup artists thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
At the end of the night no-one wants to be alone. It looks like this lady was out with her friend and when it was time to go home, she lost her friend to a better option. As the guy on the right hooks up with her party partner, she has no choice but to sit patiently and hope it’ll be time to go home soon. Let’s hope they detached their lips soon and the poor girl could finally get a taxi home to a warm bed, albeit all alone.
Ah, if only it was that simple to be that magnanimous. While we’d like to be happy to see our friends hook up at a party, it comes with the small problem of us being left alone. This guy on the right seems to somehow have been left holding a bunch of balloons while his friend has met a girl. Hopefully the balloons will be a conversation starter and he can meet someone for himself too.
It’s a classic movie scene for a reason – the romantic kiss between a soldier and his girl before he heads off to war. This buddy seems happy to hold the girl up for his pal to give a passionate kiss goodbye to, but we’re sure there were a lot of jealous faces in the crowd of onlookers. Anyway it’s great to see these scenes aren’t just for the movies and the gentleman in the picture got the send off he would have wanted.
We’ve already seen how competitive siblings can be, and here’s an example of it starting even before their rival can walk. It’s not clear what this battle was over, but it the older child is making their displeasure clear. It’s not really fair as the younger child can’t defend themselves, but maybe that’s why it’s so much fun for her sibling. Imagine when both are up and walking, revenge may be on the cards.
You’ve got on the perfect crop top that shows off your toned midriff and your perfect tan. Then you turn around and the woman next to you is also in a stunning t-shirt showing off her toned midriff and even more perfect tan. This woman is finding it hard to conceal her jealousy as she openly stares at her neighbour who seems oblivious to the envy. We think they both look great, no need to be jealous ladies!
Who looks that good
When in the presence of a pop superstar, known not only for her exceptional singing voice and dance moves, but also for being incredibly gorgeous, it’s only natural to feel a little twinge of jealousy. This woman seems to feel more than a twinge after seeing Katy Perry at The Smurfs movie premiere. With that many cameras about it’s always best to try to hide your jealousy before you become an internet meme. Easier said than done when in the presence of Katy.
It doesn’t matter what age you are, no one likes to be left out. This picture shows two friends being very affectionate, while the third is left to look on wondering why she’s being left out. Kids generally make up though so hopefully these three were able to work it out so everyone felt part of the group. Sometimes three is just a crowd and it’s inevitable that someone is left feeling alone.
They have it all
Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid are famous supermodels who seem to have it all; money, looks and fashion labels falling at their feet to have them wear their clothes. Even when you’re part of the fashion crowd and in their company it’s still possible to feel a little jealous of them. This chap in the background is snappily dressed but yet still seems to be staring enviously at Kendall’s shoes. To be fair they’re pretty stunning.
Ok, so we’ve already done this one, but we found another photo and it’s even better than the last one. At the Australian Open Andy seems unable to let his loss go and stares greedily at Novak’s winner’s trophy. As if he knows what Andy’s thinking, Novak has a firm grip on his prize and won’t be letting it go without a fight. Hopefully these two won’t have been on the same flight home or Novak won’t have got a wink of sleep.
This could be awkward. In this image, Kate is seen with Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley. They had a close relationship quite some time ago, before things became very cool between the two. Now, it may be absolutely nothing, but some rumours were suggesting William and Rose became more than just friends, at the same time as he was dating Kate. Sometimes there is smoke without fire. Either way, we’re just glad it all worked out for William and Kate in the end.
