There are many milestones in a celebrity's life; the first would obviously be getting an Oscar/Emmy/Grammy, another is earning a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame, yet another would be putting their hand and foot prints at the TCL Chinese Theatre. As prestigious, if not more, is to get your wax statue installed at the prestigious Madame Tussauds museum in London.
Many stars, including Brangelina, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce, have been honoured with wax statues in Madame Tussauds, but only a few have been photographed next to their statues. Here are some of them:
Betty White: The original "America's Sweetheart" made history as the oldest person, whose wax figure has been installed by Madam Tussauds artists. During the unveiling ceremony of her statue at Madame Tussauds Hollywood in Los Angeles in 2012, the "Golden Girl" was seen sharing a secret with her inanimate look-alike.
Helen Mirren: One of the most celebrated and adored British actresses, Helen Mirren, got her wax figure in 2012 and appeared with the statue during its launch at Madam Tussauds. In the photo, she is seen kissing it for the benefit of photographers and fans.
Justin Bieber: The pop sensation's wax figure was installed in 2011 at the London museum and it is the main attraction for many a teenage girls. The "Baby" singer is seen chilling out with his statues in the photo.
Sofia Vergara: The Colombian actress, most famous for her role as Gloria in ABC's "Modern Family", got two new wax figures at the Madam Tussauds in Times Square in June 2013. She seems to be really in love with one of her wax figures at the unveiling event.
Jimmy Fallon: "SNL" alum and talk show host Jimmy Fallon's wax figure was installed at Madame Tussauds New York in March 2012. Fallon told reporters that he was floored with the amazing work by the artists and proved his love for it by tightly hugging his statue.
Taylor Swift: Following the success of her "Fearless" album, country/pop singer Taylor Swift's wax statue was installed at Madame Tussauds New York. In the photo, Swift is smiling next to her statue that holds the guitar bedazzled with Swarovski crystals.
Ed Sheeren: Pop star Ed Sheeren's statue was unveiled by Madam Tussauds in May 2015 and the "Thinking Out Loud" singer seemed to be very happy with it. He even clicked a selfie with his look-alike.
Quentin Tarantino: The figure of "Inglorious Bastards" director Quinton Tarantino got his own wax statue at the Madame Tussauds in Hollywood in August 2009. He too seemed quite happy with his statue that seemed to be directing in its inanimate state.
