‘I suffer for my art’: Celeste Barber has revealed some of the worst injuries she’s endured while creating her hilarious celebrity Instagram parodies
Celeste, 38, often puts on an upbeat persona online as she recreates posts in various poses and settings by well-known A-listers.
Speaking of the injuries she’s suffered in the past creating content, Celeste said: ‘I’ve skinned my knees falling at the beach, a surfboard has cracked me on my nose. I suffer for my art.’
Footage rolled of those particular moments as she spoke of them, as she was able to laugh in retrospect.
Celeste said some of most favourite posts to recreate are with scantily-clad ensembles or dancing.

Speaking on Jameela Jamil’s iWeigh podcast, the 38-year-old joked: ‘If Cindy Crawford and Gwyneth Paltrow are okay with it, you can all f**king be okay with it!’
Celeste wants her posts to start conversations about how different bodies perform the same functions, and says her videos are just lighthearted parodies and not intended to ridicule anyone.
‘When people are like “do you feel mean or anything?” I’m like “no”. I only use photos they post, if it’s a paparazzi photo I won’t use it, unless they have.’

While many high-profile names have praised Celeste’s parodies, some A-listers are not fans of her work.
‘Some people don’t like it. People are allowed to be sick of being made fun of, I get it. People have blocked and are not into it, no problem. Moving on!’ she said.
