Caught On Camera Demonstrating Pure Jealousy

August 16, 2022
Jealousy is a natural emotion, and although we all like to think we never get jealous, we’re only kidding ourselves. As much as we try to deny it or hide it, the green-eyed monster is there inside all of us, because the grass is always greener on the other side of the lawn. We like to think we do a good job hiding our jealousy, but unfortunately for these people, they were caught on camera exhibiting this emotion and perfectly portraying what jealousy looks like.

A New Puppy In The House

Dogs and cats don’t always get along, we all know that. Those of us who own a pet know that cats are mostly afraid of dogs, and dogs are usually aggressive towards cats. However, in some rare cases, they manage to live under the same roof and get along pretty well. This isn’t one of those rare cases.

It’s pretty clear this cat doesn’t appreciate the dog invading his house – his territory – and stealing all the love and attention. Cats like to think they are the owners of the house, and they like to have things their way. If you didn’t know that already, this photo perfectly demonstrates that animals can get jealous just like humans, if not even more.

Our First And Last Fishing Trip

Our first and last fishing trip

Fishing, like any other sport and pastime, is something we do for fun. However, it’s not much fun when you catch nothing, while your friend brings home a giant catch. These brothers decided they could use some quality time together, and what’s a better way to spend the day than a fishing trip?

Although sports are meant for fun, and we like to think there’s no competition between friends and family, we’re not kidding anyone. We all get competitive with our siblings, whether we go fishing, swimming, or even playing an innocent board game. Everything eventually turns into a competition, and no one likes to lose.

every sports fan in the world is probably familiar with the Djokovic–Murray rivalry, the age-old rivalry between professional tennis players Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Andy Murray of the United Kingdom. The two tennis players are of the same age and started their career together in training camp. Since then, they have met 36 on the tennis court, and each time someone else ends up winning the game.

This photo was taken the third time they have met, and it’s clear who won this game and who’s a sore loser. Djokovic won the match and the mixed look on Murray’s face, of jealousy and resentment, says it all. Looking at his expression, we feel like a picture is worth a thousand words, and this is what jealousy looks like.

This mother brought home a new, smaller, fluffier pet, and immediately all the attention was around him. Unlike cats, who try to play it cool and seem independent, dogs have no shame letting us know they love us and need our attention. Dogs are always there for us, they can be counted on, and all they expect in return is our unconditional love and affection.

This dog was feeling neglected when his family brought home a new kitten, and he was also feeling more than a little jealous of the kitten getting all the attention. For dogs, loyalty means everything, and so we won’t be surprised if this little guy was feeling downright betrayed. If you ask us, he has all the reason in the world to feel this way – don’t you think?

It's A Girl!

When a baby brother is born, it’s hard for kids to accept that they won’t be the center of attention anymore and that they’d have to share everything they have (including their parents’ attention) with someone else. Although they don’t necessarily acknowledge it, all kids are secretly jealous when the family welcomes a new baby to the world.

This kid was used to being the only child around the house, and the first grandchild in the family, and so although he was looking forward to having a baby sister, he never realized how it would make him feel. Clearly, he’s just starting to realize having a baby sister means sharing the family’s precious love and attention with someone else.

What's Happening Here?

What's happening here?

We didn’t know jealousy can appear at such a young age, but apparently the green monster is inside us from the minute we are born into this world. It seems like this baby isn’t thrilled about his parents loving each other, as he was under the impression he should be the only get getting hugs and kisses around the house.

Otherwise, what is this baby crying about? We can’t think of another explanation for this photo. True, understanding babies’ needs and emotions can be challenging, but we think we know a look of jealousy when we see one, and this baby is clearly unhappy about his parents kissing each other rather than him.

Not On My Watch

We all get insecure every now and then, even those of us who seem like they have it all figured out. We might get insecure about our appearance, our achievements or our skills, and we need to practice self-love and self-care. Until that happens, all this woman can do is cover her boyfriend’s eyes when a pretty girl walking by, until she works out her insecurities.

We understand that everyone might get jealous or even possessive of their partner, but we need to make sure this possessiveness doesn’t cross any red lines, because it might be dangerous to live in such an environment. However, in this case, she seems to be just an innocent girl wishing she had long legs and a better tan.

Dogs are social animals, and loyalty is a top value for them. They have their ‘pack,’ and the alpha dog whom they follow – which is usually their owner or the head of the family, in case they have more than one owner. As social animals, they respect and appreciate the relationship with their owners and their place in the pack, and they get very attached to us humans (as we do to them).

Some dogs have a harder time than others to accept and become comfortable with new family members, since they are extremely protective of their pack. Huskies are among the breeds who are known to be exceptionally loyal and protective, and as this photo shows, this Husky seems to have a problem with his owner’s new girlfriend.

They're Worried About Her

Some people don’t like to have all eyes on them, while others will do anything to stand out in a crowd. That’s why we sometimes dress in provocative or otherwise eye-catching ways. This girl wasn’t trying to get everyone’s attention, but you can’t really blame people for looking when it’s the middle of winter and she’s dressed in a tank top.

Of course, these women aren’t looking because they’re jealous of what they see, but since they’re simply wondering if she isn’t cold. To us, it seems like they might feel unprivileged next to this woman, and these are expressions of jealousy and resentment. It’s easier said than done, but we think they would be better off minding their own business, dropping their attitude, and being thankful for what they have.

Gym Buddies

While the gym is a great place to develop a regular fitness routine, and it has a lot of advantages, such as the professional instructors, the varied utilities, and the air conditioning on hot days, it’s not for everyone. We all get insecure about our bodies, especially when we’re only at the beginning of our training journey, and the gym can be a rather intimidating place.

It usually seems to be full of professionals and people who frequent the gym on a daily basis, and even if it isn’t, and we’re surrounded by beginners like ourselves, we fail to notice them. This guy is clearly feeling pretty insecure about his body, and being at the gym surrounded by these ripped people (and one in particular) isn’t helping. We can almost read his mind by looking at his expression, and we can only imagine he’s thinking, “will I ever get there?”

Young Love

High school can be a hard time for many of us for different reasons, but the main one must be our love life and growing confusion surrounding it. It seems like this young man just spotted his high school crush kissing another guy, and his expression seems to be a mixture of disappointment, sadness, jealousy, and a little bit of disgust.

Who can tell him he’s wrong? Perhaps this wasn’t the right girl for him (for one thing – she clearly doesn’t reciprocate his feelings), but it doesn’t make it any less hurtful. Of course, jealousy doesn’t always mean there’s love behind it, sometimes we get jealous simply because we want something we can’t have.

Hedgehogs are sweet creatures by all opinions, but they are an unusual pet nonetheless, what with their spikes and hard exterior’ it seems like petting them isn’t as fun as petting a furry dog. Then again, people have fish and snakes as pets, so on second thought, hedgehogs might not be that weird a choice.

This girl must be getting a lot of attention thanks to her cute hedgehog, and she certainly caught the eye of the girl next to her, who seems intrigued and somewhat envious of this cute little creature. This photo once again goes to show we only want what we can’t have, because hedgehogs aren’t only incredibly sweet, but also something we don’t see every day.

Dogs might have a hard time with their owners bringing in new people to the house – their house – and it might take them some time to get the know and like these new people. At first, they can be very aggressive towards strangers – even the small and seemingly harmless dogs.

As the photo shows, this little guy isn’t happy about his owner’s new boyfriend, and he sure doesn’t like to see them hug. For all we know, he might interpret this as some kind of an attack against his owner, and as we know, it’s his life mission to protect her at any cost. Or it could just be that he doesn’t like it when she pays attention to anyone else but him.

Jayne Mansfield

American actress Jayne Mansfield was well known during the fifties and sixties not only for her acting skills but also for her good looks. Similarly to Marilyn Monroe, Mansfield was known as an eye-candy and a fashion icon at the time. However, not everyone was a fan of her sense of fashion and revealing wardrobe.

This photo was taken at the birthday party of Italian actress Sophia Loren, where Mansfield exhibited, yet again, her controversial and provocative style; clearly, the birthday girl wasn’t happy about it. No one likes to have their thunder stolen at their birthday party, and when it comes to Hollywood stars, everything becomes heightened and more dramatic.

Wait For Me

Almost always, in every group of three friends, there’s a third wheel, and it’s pretty clear who plays that role in this friendship. These girls were getting ready for prom, all jolly and excited for the big day, and while the third girl was finishing her makeup, her two friends were already outside posing for the eternal prom photos.

We like to look back at old high school photos and reminisce in those beautiful memories, but this doesn’t seem like a moment anyone would ever want to remember. This girl showed up for the photo just in time and happened to burst in the frame just at the right moment, with a face that says it all.

Would You Look At That

They’ll tell you there are no sore feelings between friends, but that’s not true – most of the time, this kind of sore feelings of envy get even worse between close friends. This photo was taken during the Grammy Awards of 2013, when Ellen DeGeneres was caught on camera shamelessly peeping at Katy Perry’s shameless cleavage.

“Peeping” isn’t even the right word – we should say gawking. There’s a missing part to this photo – and that’s Ellen’s wife, Portia De Rossi, who was standing right next to her, laughing at this whole thing. You’d think Portia was the one to be jealous in this situation, but we think it was the TV host that was caught green-eyed.

But We Came Here Together

These two friends went on their annual trip to Comic-Con, but it seems like this year one of them left alone, while the other one was leaving with a date. Okay, we don’t know that for sure, but we do know a look of jealousy when we see one. Judging by the look on this face, this guy doesn’t seem to be too supportive of his friend.

He doesn’t only seem jealous and disappointed by his friend (or that it wasn’t him in his place), but he seems downright betrayed. Relationships sometimes tend to get in the way of friendships, and it’s normal, but it only comes in the way if we let it.

By all opinions, Leonardo DiCaprio is among the most talented actors Hollywood has seen, and it’s not for naught that he won seven Academy Awards nominations. However, until he finally won the prestigious award in 2016 for his performance in The Revenant, he had to sit there in the crowd every year as they read out the winner’s name, only to lose to his colleagues every time.

In 2014, the actor thought this was finally going to be the year when he wins the desired award for his performance in The Wolf of Wall Street, but once again, this night ended with another failed nomination, as the award went to fellow actor Matthew McConaughey. Despite his acting skills, he couldn’t hide his disappointment this time, and his miserable expression eventually became a viral meme.

Celebrities Get Jealous Too

Actress Jennifer Aniston is one of the most accomplished and beloved figures in Hollywood; her impressive career walks before her, and her good looks have awarded her many titles throughout the years, such as “the most beautiful woman in the world.” Although it seems as if the acclaimed actress has nothing to be insecure about, we all have our moments of weakness.

When it comes to relationships and ex-husbands, we all get a bit jealous, even the celebrities who seem like they have life figured out. When the actress spotted her ex-husband, Justin Theroux, at a party, she couldn’t help but throw him this suspicious side-ways glance and a flip of her hair, suggesting she might be jealous of what she sees.

We almost can’t believe this moment was caught on camera; perhaps someone witnessed the moment and new they had to commemorate it, and now, thanks to them, we have a photo that perfectly illustrates what jealousy looks like. These men weren’t even trying to hide their envy, and their gaping stares say it all.

We’re only human, and it’s hard to avoid looking at something that catches our eye, but the polite thing to do is try not to stare, or at least be subtle about it. Whenever we’re out with a friend and they want to avert our attention to something, they would say, “look behind you, but don’t make it too obvious.” This group of friends clearly wasn’t aware of this social convention.

Friend Zone Alert

You can’t argue with the look on this guy’s face, who isn’t even trying to hide his disappointment, and we can’t blame him for how he feels – who wouldn’t feel jealous in such a humiliating situation? He probably came to this party hoping tonight would finally be the night he could tell the girl of his dreams how he feels, and then she kisses another guy – while sitting on his shoulders no less!

And he just stands there, feeling frustrated and humiliated, because what could he possibly do? The worst part is that the guy she’s kissing basically looks like him, only he’s a little taller and he’s wearing a cool hat. Perhaps that’s the message here? Either way, this guy is right to feel jealous.

That Could've Been Me

That could've been me 22
That could've been me

This girl is definitely staring at her friend with an envious look, and it seems like she’s thinking, “this could’ve been me – why didn’t I wear a tank top?” That’s one way to get attention, but it’s not necessarily the kind of attention you want. We’re wondering if the girl next to her feels at all uncomfortable with the way her friend is so blatantly staring at her.

Perhaps she was just trying to read what’s written on her tank top? If you’re going to wear a revealing tank top like that, the first and most basic rule is there shouldn’t be anything written on it, since it would just give people an excuse to stare.

Royal Jealousy

It’s no secret that there’s a lot of jealousy and drama in the Royal Family. We can only imagine that being a royal, having so many public duties, and having paparazzi on you constantly takes its toll on you. Although the members of the royal family always keep their appearances high and honorable, they have their glitches as well.

After all, they’re only human, and you can’t keep a straight smile for the camera all day, every day. This time, it was Prince William who was caught looking rather uncomfortable around his wife and his younger brother. Is it possible he’s somewhat jealous of their close relationship? We’re not sure what’s going on with this friendship after Prince Harry’s decision to leave the royal family, but rumor has it the two were rather close back in the day.

Under My Umbrella

We all have different bodies, different shapes and sizes, and different colors, and we’re all beautiful in our own unique way. However, we tend to want what we don’t have, and this rule doesn’t pass over celebrities. While Rihanna clearly has nothing to be ashamed of, as she’s one of the most successful singers in the world, she was caught in a moment of jealousy, proving celebrities are human just like us.

So what if Nicky Minage is sporting something Rihanna doesn’t seem to have? It doesn’t make her a better singer or a more talented performer, if you ask us. However, you can’t look for the logic behind jealousy, because you won’t find any.

I've Made The Wrong Choice

I've made the wrong choice

As children, there’s almost nothing we liked more during the hot months of summer than hearing the tune of the ice cream truck, signaling its approach. One of the hardest decisions back then – before we had to grow up and make grown-up decisions – was choosing the flavor of ice cream. If you think about it, really the only problem is that there are too many options.

After choosing their favorite flavor, Lenny and Ian were enjoying their ice cream, until Ian got a glace at his friend’s cone, and realized he had made a tremendous mistake. Perhaps it was the size of her ice cream next to his that made him feel cheated, or perhaps he saw how much she was enjoying it, but little Ian couldn’t help but feel overcome with jealousy.

The Supportive Friend

Fifth Harmony was an American girl band that materialized on the successful reality show The X Factor. Camila Cabello was arguably the star of the band, and it seems like the fame had gone up to her head, as she didn’t like it whenever another member of the band seemed to be the center of attention.

While she managed to hide it most of the time, it’s dangerous to try and bottle this kind of sore feelings, as they are bound to come out sooner or later. Eventually, her jealousy came out at the worst possible moment, as it was caught on camera, and she had some explaining to do.

You've Got To Be Kidding Me

You've got to be kidding me 27

The kid in this photo isn’t just extremely jealous of this dessert, but he’s also shocked by it, and how could he not be? This must be the biggest ice cream cone we’ve ever seen, and it doesn’t seem like it’s meant to be devoured by only one person, but an entire family. We’ve said that life is unfair, but this father not sharing this dessert isn’t just unfair, but plain cruelty.

They say our eyes are the windows to our soul, and in this case, our expression is the window to our thoughts – looking at the kid’s face, we can tell exactly what he’s thinking, and we’re right there with him. It shouldn’t have been hard to capture this photo, as the kid was probably stuck with this face for a couple of minutes.

An Ice Cream A Day Keeps The Doctor Away

As children, our parents buying us ice cream was one of the biggest treats we could dream of, so we can all relate with this little boy and his desperation. It seems rather inconsiderate that the girls had to sit by the window to enjoy their ice cream, but it probably wasn’t intentional, and they must be unaware of how jealous this young boy is.

Growing up, whenever we didn’t get what we wanted and we’d complain it wasn’t fair, our parents would tell us that life is unfair (or was it just us?). In a way, this is a very important life lesson for this young boy – he gets to learn at first hand just how unfair the world is, and that we can’t always get what we want (the rolling stones even wrote a song about it).

Happy Birthday

Happy birthday 29
Happy birthday

As we get older, we care less and less for our birthday, and we reach a certain age when we don’t even want to celebrate it anymore. However, as children, celebrating our birthday is a big deal; we look forward to getting presents, balloons, a party that’s thrown just for us, and the cherry on top – our special birthday cake.

That’s why celebrating a kid’s birthday with his aunt’s birthday is never a good idea, and we can’t understand how this family had made such an obvious mistake. Children want to be the center of attention on their birthday, and most importantly, they want to be the only ones getting presents and cakes. This kid perfectly demonstrates that, and after seeing the look on his face, we’re sure this mistake won’t repeat itself.

Mylo Doesn't Share Food

Mylo doesn't share food

As Friends fans know, Joey doesn’t share food, and he isn’t the only one. If there’s one thing people enjoy more than looking at photos of cats online, it’s posting photos of their own cats. This photo perfectly illustrates Mylo’s feelings towards his feline friend who shares his house and seems to be eating all his food.

Hint: he isn’t happy about it. This woman was probably never expecting him to appear in this shot, she was just taking a photo of her other cat innocently eating until Mylo burst into the frame with a suspicious look and mad eyes.

No matter how you look at it, beauty pageants are meant to be competitive – it is a competition, after all, where the contestants are measured by their physical appearance, special skills and personality. If people have a hard time losing at a friendly board game with the family, imagine what it must be like losing at a contest you’ve been working so hard for.

What might be even worse than losing is coming up in second place since even though it’s a respected spot, it’s hard knowing you were this close, that it could’ve been your crown – but the end of the day, someone else gets to wear the crown. This woman nailed the spot of the runner-up, but she couldn’t even hide her sore feelings towards the winner.

Whether you’re an ultimate chocolate-monster, a fan of cheesecakes, or a fruit person, no one can resist a good tiramisu – it’s no wonder this woman is looking at it with such intensity. You might be wondering why not get a cake of her own, since it seems like no diet is worth this look, and we’re thinking the same thing.

The more pressing question is how come this tiramisu was on the table long enough for this girl to crave it – if we have a dessert on our table, it usually disappears before anyone even gets the chance to take a photo of it.

When Family Doesn't Come First

When family doesn't come first

To us, this baby seems incredibly cute and innocent, but for her older sister, she might seem like the enemy. This adorable family photo portrays the rivalry between siblings, that’s always there, no matter how much we try and deny it. While siblings love each other unconditionally, they also secretly envy each other.

We suspect this baby might be crying because she’s no longer the little sister in the family, and we know the little sister always gets all the attention around the house, from the parents and her older siblings. However, we’re sure she’ll learn to love and accept her baby sister in no time.

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy birthday to me

As we get older, our birthday becomes something we resent; after the age of thirty, growing older becomes a scary thing, and we avoid thinking about it. However, as kids, there’s almost nothing we like more than our birthday – the presents, the cakes, and the constant attention is all kids ever wish for.

For kids, there’s almost nothing worst than having to share your birthday with your friends or siblings, because no one wants to share the presents, the cake, and most of all, the attention, with others. When this girl was forced to share her birthday party with her friends, she made sure she would be the only one getting the birthday wish.

In the context of a classroom, when a student is sneaking a peek at the desk next to them, they're usually trying to read their answers to an exam, or something like that - but not in this case.

In this case, the student is just mesmerized by something that caught her eye, and she can't even hide her admiration. The person who managed to photograph this funny moment was probably mesmerized, too.

Just Look At Those Eyes

They always say we want what we don't have - for instance, women with straight hair will long for curls, while women with curls will envy those with straight hair.

This seems to be one of those cases, but instead of hair, the area of interest is a little south of the neckline. The girl on the right couldn't control her eyes, and she's like, "subtlety? No, never heard of that."
