They say money can’t buy happiness and to some people, celebrities are who they think contribute to the falseness of that statement. From the outside, it seems like fame would make anyone happy: appearing on red carpets, luxurious vacationing and worldwide recognition. So perhaps, happiness— or at least, the tangibility of it— would be expected to come easier when you’re in the limelight of Hollywood.

But no matter how much money a person makes, there are certain things that can’t be bought. Not even protection from the universal disturbance that is allergies. Whether you live in Hollywood Hills or a shoebox of an apartment, allergies don’t discriminate when it comes to who they choose. Here’s a look a some celebrities who, no matter how famous, can’t outrun these specific allergies.
