Jealousy and envy are two emotions that most of us have felt at some point. They’re not positive emotions, and sometimes we let them get the better of us. When you are in the grips of jealousy, you may find yourself acting somewhat irrationally. However, jealousy can also happen over little things, like when a friend catches a bigger fish than you. After that initial wave of jealousy has passed, most of us find ourselves proud of whoever is succeeding or getting the attention we felt that we wanted. Keep scrolling to see some of the funniest examples of jealousy caught on camera.
Please Love Me
If there is one thing that dogs love, it is a nice cuddle and a few well-placed pats on the head. This good boy thought he was going to get some attention from his owner, only for a stuffed animal to receive the pats he so desperately wanted.
Those big puppy dog eyes sum up how jealous he is, and how he wants those pats for himself. We hope the owner finally gave him some attention; otherwise, he is going to have one sad dog.
After a couple has been together for a while, it’s expected that the pair move on to the next level of the relationship. For this happy couple, they reached that level in their relationship, and her partner decided to propose in a very public manner.
The woman was thrilled, and obviously said a giant “Yes.” However, another woman and her boyfriend were less than enthused by this development. You can see by her face that she is having a “Why her?” moment. Clearly, she wants her boyfriend to ask her to marry him with a similar grand romantic gesture. We hope she gets that proposal soon!
You’re In My Shot
Well, talk about some shady looks! This picture captured at the met gala captures the moment Kylie and Kendal Jenner tried to showdown with Jennifer Lopez. J–Lo was paying the two no mind as she posed for pictures.
Meanwhile, it seems Kendal and Kylie were quite upset that the diva had stolen the spotlight from them. Really, Kylie, that is some serious side-eye girl!
And The Oscar Goes To
Leonardo DiCaprio is arguably one of the finest actors of this generation. Year after year, he found himself nominated for Oscars, and year after year, it was given to someone else. You can see by his face here, that he truly believed he would win an Academy Award for the film The Wolf Of Wallstreet.
Once more, he was passed over for someone else. Leo did end up winning an Oscar for his role as a frontiersman in the film The Revenant, though. With so many excellent movies starring him coming out each year, we bet that he will take home at least one or two more Oscars before he retires from Hollywood.
American actress Jennifer Aniston has been in a lot of movies since her breakout role in the sitcom Friends. She has also been through two marriages, one to Brad Pitt, and one to Justin Theroux.
While she was married to Theroux, the two found themselves at a fancy party. Theroux was less enthralled by his wife and spent most of his time talking to this faceless gentleman. Jen’s face shows that she wished he was talking to her, rather than that man.
Comic-Con and other events that allow fans to cosplay as their favorite superheroes, anime characters, and film legends are events that attract a lot of people. Sometimes it can be hard to find people who share your love for things like obscure Japanese anime, but these two people managed to find each other in the crowd.
It appeared to be love at first sight for this duo, but someone else was rather jealous of the fact that they did not get there first. This guy watching from the sidelines definitely wishes he had managed to swoop in and chat with this woman dressed in a bright yellow romper.
Italian actress Sophia Loren was known for her stunning looks and voluptuous figure. She had the kind of presence that would stop both men and women in their tracks. Jayne Mansfield was known less for her acting talent, and more for her need for attention.
This photograph of Loren and Mansfield together sums about how Loren feels about Mansfield’s rather revealing dress. It looks like Mansfield could experience a wardrobe malfunction at any moment. This was what she was known for, though. Clearly, Loren does not like that Mansfield was trying to grab the rooms attention with her outfit, rather than with her talent on the big screen.
The beauty pageant circuit is incredibly competitive. Women and teenagers from all over the world compete to win the crown of Miss Universe, Miss America, and many other smaller titles that lead to the bigger ones.
Being first runner-up to the crown can be pretty tough for some pageant girls. They are so close to winning the crown. They still have to smile and act like they are happy with their lesser title, which can be pretty trying for even the best beauty princesses.
Got to get me some of those!
Even a beautiful goddess like RiRi feels a little jealous sometimes. Rihanna was captured looking at Nikki Minaj’s assets while standing for an interview.
We must say, even Rihanna’s jealous side is gorgeous!
Money Can’t Buy Happiness
Sometimes people can be jealous of how happy other people are. Take for instance this jealous lady. Recognize her?
Well, even the rich and famous get a little annoyed and jealous when others look happy.
Bro That’s My Girl
Oh, how we love it when the camera catches celebs being shady. Take for instance this pic of Kanye giving Justine a death stare.
It seems the rapper can’t stand to have others fawning over his wifey. The photographer who captured this shot really snapped it at the perfect moment. Also, it seems like little Justin had wandering hands too.
Two of these things are not like the other
It seems that these bridesmaids can’t figure out why they look so different wearing the same dress. It seems the bridal party is going to look a little uneven for the wedding pictures.
We must admit, it’s pretty funny and we are sure the bride was freaking out and searching for tissues to stuff in that bodice so they would look the same.
Donuts are absolutely delicious. Whether we are talking jam-filled, glassed or chocolate frosted, these sweet treats are divine.
No wonder then this little pooch looks so jealous. It seems he wants a donut too! We don’t know about you but our heart would melt if we had to go up against that adorable little face.
Dogs tend to form strong attachments to their owners. This can often be mistaken for genuine love. Some dogs cannot stand to see their owners with other people, and that includes significant others.
This little white dog did not want his owner to take a picture with his new girlfriend without him. That’s why he decided to jump into the photo and latch on to his owner’s arm. However, even that bite couldn’t break up that couple.
A Special Kind Of Pet
Hedgehogs are adorable. They might be covered in spikes, but their little faces make them look very cuddly and cute. This woman decided to bring her hedgehog to work and show off what an amazing pet it is.
It’s definitely not cuddly, as you need to wrap it in a towel to actually hold it. Her colleague does seem rather envious of this cute little guy, though. Maybe she will head to the pet store and pick up her own hedgehog.
Singer Katy Perry has been belting out hits for a decade now. Her style has really changed over the years, but her naturally curvy body has not.
When Ellen DeGeneres found herself at an award show with the lovely singer, and she could not keep her eyes off of some of her assets. It’s a good thing her wife, Portia de Rossi, wasn’t around, or she may have been a bit jealous of Ellen’s reaction to Katy.
Whose Award Is It Anyway?
Will Ferrell is a comedic genius. He has been starring, writing, and producing comedy films and television series since he first started out on Saturday Night Live. He was the obvious choice for a big comedy lifetime achievement award in 2013 at the MTV Movie Awards.
However, Aubrey Plaza, the actress who starred in Parks and Recreation, thought she deserved it and made her way up on stage. It was a very awkward moment for everyone who watched because she wasn’t joking.
In the digital age, it is normal to spend a lot of time on your laptop or smartphone. Most of us have jobs that involve the use of a computer or, at the very least, a tablet device. This dog owner had some important work that they needed to get done at home.
The only problem was that their dog felt that their laptop was getting a lot more attention than them. That nose nudge, and the sad look in the dog’s eyes, shows that he definitely needs some love.
We all scream for ice cream
Look at this poor kid! We’ve all been there when we were young kids (and some of us as adults as well). This boy just doesn’t get how these girls can sit there and enjoy an ice cream cone, when he has to stay outside and not get any ice cream at all.
Sometimes it seems that the world is completely unfair. When you’re forced to look from outside at other people having what you want more than anything, hope is all but lost. And the worst part is, these girls don’t even realize how lucky they are to be sitting there with their ice cream cones, while one boy must go home and eat his vegetables instead.
Eyes wide shut
We’ve all been through this kind of situation. While we are supposed to trust our partners completely, we still don’t want their eyes wandering anywhere but on us.
This girl saw her boyfriend looking at another girl – who is dressed to impress – and did the most sensible thing a girl could do: she covered his eyes, to help him control himself and not stare at the pretty girl. We think it’s adorable, especially since these two seem to be having a laugh about it.
Give me love
Babies are attention-grabbing and needy creatures. They constantly need someone to look after them, hold them, and give them love.
And even if we give them all the love in the world, should we ever decide to direct that love to someone else – say, our spouses – they could get incredibly jealous. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at this adorable baby pouting as his mommy and daddy are directing their kisses towards each other, and not him.
Who do you think you are
As we’ve already discussed, it’s never nice to see your spouse looking at other people, let alone gawking at other people. Celebrities are no exception to this. Just look at Spice Girls singer Victoria Beckham’s expression in this picture.
Her husband, soccer legend David Beckham, is clearly staring at the cheerleaders during a basketball game, and she’s throwing him all kinds of shade for it. We’re with you on this one, Posh Spice – he should only have eyes for you.
The look on this little boy’s face is something that we all know. It’s that look you get when you realize you made the wrong choice, while your friend made the right one.
In this case, he probably wishes he didn’t ask his parents for a popsicle, but asked for ice cream instead. Especially since the girl next to him seems to be enjoying her ice cream cone so much better. Next time ask for ice cream, little man.
Winner winner, chicken dinner
Some people are more competitive than others, but nobody really likes losing. It feels terrible, especially when you’re a tennis player and your whole career depends on winning.
This could explain the expression on Andy Murray’s face, when he’s looking at his fellow player Novak Djokovic and his big, fat trophy. This was back in the 2016 Australian Open final, when Murray lost the match to Djokovic, and you can tell the tennis player took his loss hard.
It can be a real bummer when your friend finds himself a lady love and you’re left all alone.
No one likes to be the third wheel, and in this picture, it’s pretty obvious who’s the third wheel here. But really, if you’re so jealous of your friend and his girl, you needn’t sit on the couch with them. Go out and find yourself a loved one, too. We believe in you!
This mother was hoping to take a beautiful picture with her three daughters, all wearing something white. While her older daughter was behaving while posing for the picture, her middle kid went rogue and got mad at her baby sister.
We would be a little concerned if it didn’t look so darn cute, the way she’s seemingly screaming at her. We hope she gets over her jealousy soon enough, or this baby might just be in for some major sister rivalry.
Quality man-dog time
This dog looks so adorable when it’s mad, it actually became a meme! This couple just wanted to take a selfie, and they even let their dog be included in the picture with them.
But their dog still doesn’t look very happy. It looks like it wants to spend some quality time with its owner, without the girl he’s seemingly dating. And the irritated look upon its face just makes us want to burst into laughter.
Fishing is one of those activities that is supposed to be relaxing. You head out on in your boat, cast your fishing rod into the lake or ocean, and wait for something to nibble on the fishing line.
All fishermen want to have the catch of the day, but this poor guy seemed to have completely missed it. While all he caught was a small fry, his friend seems to have caught the big one. You can see the envy in his eyes as he compares his rather small fish to the large one his friend is holding.
Sharing Is Caring
Going out to eat is a lot of fun. You get to sample new cuisine or eat some favorites like fish and chips. This marmalade tabby decided that sharing is caring and patiently stared at this man’s plate of food until he decided to give him some.
Fish is delicious, and cats definitely like to indulge in people food once in a while. Hopefully, this man decided to share a tidbit with this little guy.
King Of The House
Cats and dogs are pretty notorious for not always getting along. If you own a cat and decide to get a puppy or older dog, it can take a few weeks or even months for the cat to warm up to the dog.
This family decided to get a new puppy, and their cat was definitely not happy about the new addition. This cat felt like his attention and authority in the house had been usurped. We think this cat may be forming a plot to deal with this new puppy and regain his power.
The teenage years are not easy for everyone. Finding the friend group that you click with can be difficult, and even when you find it, you can still feel like you are missing out.
This friend showed up late to a party, and nobody told her that there was a specific dress code. She definitely looks a bit upset at not being included or missing the text that told her what to wear. All she needed to do was jump in and have fun to avoid that feeling of being left out.
Always Be Inclusive
Prom is one of those nights that high schoolers look forward to for the four years they spend preparing themselves for college. Girls get to select fancy gowns, rent limos, and pose for pictures with their best friends.
This girl realized that she had been left out of one of the shots, and she was going to make sure everyone felt her displeasure. We’re not sure if this is jealousy or just plain anger.
New Kitten On The Block
Cats do not like to share. Their feline personalities are very much like a human’s. They want love when they feel like it, will give you attention when they are ready to, and definitely do not want to share their food with a kitten.
This cat’s selfie of the rage and jealousy they are feeling towards the new kitten in their home could not be more perfect. These two need to work things out because they will be living together for a long time.
For most people, they head to the gym to get fit and improve both their minds and their bodies. This man has obviously spent a lot of time at the gym honing his body to perfection, and he wants everyone to know it.
Then, there is this man in the background who is clearly envious of the other guy’s physique. Instead of being envious, he should just start working even harder, and then he can have a body like that too.
Kittens love to snuggle. They are used to sleeping together before they are adopted, which means that they need their humans to fill the void that their mothers have left.
These two little ones were adopted together, but they did not like to share their human. You can tell by this marmalade kitten’s face that it wishes it was being snuggled too. All it needs to do is flop down next to it, and it will get what it wants.
Losing A Friend
Weddings are one of the best days of a couples’ life. They get to plan everything, invite all of their friends and family, and celebrate their eternal love for one another.
However, for some friends, it also means that they have officially lost their best friend. They can no longer call them to come and hang out at odd times. Change is inevitable, and their married partner will always come first. This best man has just realized that.
They say a picture says a thousand words and this picture certainly says a lot.
While its possible this girl is giving side-eye because she envies the girl next to her, it is also possible that she is just taking the opportunity to cheat off her friend’s test. Either that or she could be looking at the photographer suspiciously. Either way, this is probably a picture she didnt want to have taken.
High school is the time when most of us will experience our first major crush and even our first relationship. This highschooler had liked one of his classmates for a very long time.
However, she had no idea who he was and had met someone else. The look of deep sadness on this teen’s face says it all. He knows he has lost his chance with her and is incredibly jealous of the other student she has chosen. He should have made a move!
