20 Celebrities Who Can't Be Bothered to Hold Their Own Umbrellas
Our strongest counter argument for celebrities being “just like us” is also the simplest: If you pay someone to hold your umbrella for you, we probably don't have a lot in common.
That being said, we’re not sure we’d say no to a professional umbrella holder (is that their job title?) if one were offered.
The phenomenon is pretty hilarious. Can you imagine a situation in which you’re loaded down and it’s raining hard enough that you’re rendered both unable to hold your own umbrella and desperate enough to hire someone to do it for you??? Of course, most of the stars aren’t actually carrying anything.

The Oscar winner posed for photos on her way to the set of The Late Show in N.Y.C. Luckily, someone was standing by to hold her umbrella during the photo opp—otherwise, who knows what could've happened?!
Mary-Kate is carrying her own cup of coffee—she can't handle an umbrella too. Plus, the color would totally ruin the vibe of her all-black lewk.

Kim Kardashian West
No Louboutin-wearer should ever be held responsible for their own shelter from the elements.
If there's anyone who really doesn't need a professional umbrella-holder, it's Beyoncé. She could probably hold five open umbrellas, do the can-can, and sing the national anthem all at once (while 9-months pregnant, in heels).
Alex Parrish would NOT approve.
We'll admit, it looks cool on Rosie.
Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman
No matter which way you cut it, an umbrella just isn't a chic red carpet accessory.
