Madonna
Thursday morning Madame Tussauds wax museum in Las Vegas unveiled a new figure of pop superstar Madonna, dressed in her Roman gladiator costume she wore at the 2012 Super Bowl; where the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17.

The Material Girl's likeness, outfitted with the same sparkly gold and silver headdress that London designer Philip Treacy created for the halftime show, looks about 20 years younger than the real Madonna (54).

Penelope Cruz's Wax Figure Is So-So

Penelope Cruz
The Gervin wax museum in Paris just unveiled its figure of actress Penelope Cruz. The sculpture is dressed in a bright blue dress with jeweled accents. We think they got Penelope's figure just right, but the face isn't spot on.

The actress stars in the new Woody Allen film "To Rome With Love" in which various lives intersect in the Italian city. The characters include architect John (Alec Baldwin), a young man (Jesse Eisenberg) in love with his girlfriend's best friend, an opera director (Allen) who finds an undiscovered talent in an unexpected place, and Leopoldo (Roberto Benigni), wh...

Betty White Likes Her 'Wonderful' Wax Figure

Betty White
Madame Tussauds in Hollywood unveiled a wax figure of Betty White yesterday. The sculpture captures the venerable actress' likeness rather well, although we think the artist made the nose just a tad too big. What do you think?

Fake Betty wore a hot pink pantsuit with sneakers, and real Betty wore a matching cardigan with black pants.

At one point Betty hugged her figure, and she replicated the pose of her wax twin. The sculpture is reportedly valued at $300,000. Betty, 90, told People.com, "I think they did a wonderful job."

The actress enjoyed a resurgence in her career in 2010 after st...

Celine Dion
Celine Dion's wax figure was unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas yesterday. The figure wears a gold mini dress and black pumps. We think the sculptors did a pretty good job of replicating the pop star's look. What do you think?

The Clark County Children's Choir helped with the unveiling.

The singer is currently experiencing some health issues. She recently canceled 10 shows as she recovers from a viral infection that has affected her voice. She was diagnosed with weakness in her right vocal chord.

Check out more photos of the wax and real Celine...

Nicolas Cage
Let's face it. Nicolas Cage is a little creepy. If it's possible, his wax figure is creepier than he is. The actor unveiled his lookalike at Musee Grevin in Paris on Sunday.

Cage stars in the upcoming film "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance." The sequel to 2007's "Ghost Rider" finds Johnny Blaze (Cage) summoning his infernal alter ego to help rescue a 10 -year-old boy from the Devil incarnate.

The actor also wants a sequel to his 2006 movie flop "The Wicker Man." The film was widely criticized, but that hasn't stopped Cage from considering playing Edward Malus again.

Do you think his...

Colin Firth
Oscar winner Colin Firth came face-to-face with himself during a recent TV appearance when comedienne Ellen DeGeneres had his new Madame Tussauds waxwork shipped in from London for her show.

The actor confessed he had yet to see his likeness - because he found the idea a "little creepy", prompting the chat show host to reveal she had it backstage.

Firth put his fears aside and looked himself in the eye, admitting it was a great honor to get waxed.

He says, "Madame Tussauds was one of the first tourist attractions I visited, I think, when I went to London. That was a big deal for me, eve...

Lindsay Lohan wax figure
Selena Gomez' recent wax figure wasn't half bad - but it just reminded us that we've seen much, much worse. Here are the worst celebrity wax figures.

Lindsay Lohan changes her looks all the time, but even with blonde hair the above jailbird outfit doesn't look much like Lindsay.

Can you guess who this is? Believe it or not, it's Jennifer Lopez. Not only does J-Lo not have on one of her famous gowns, she looks like a sweaty Uma Thurman.

We think that Selena Gomez' wax figure wouldn't be caught going out with Justin Bieber's wax figure! The nose looks right, but the hair is all wrong...

Kate Winslet
Madame Tussauds unveiled a Kate Winslet waxwork in London yesterday, and the likeness is quite good. What do you think?

Kate stars in the upcoming film "Labor Day" about a single mother who shelters an escaped convict (Josh Brolin) and slowly falls for him over the course of one very eventful Labor Day weekend.

Earlier this fall Kate talked about her penchant for getting naked on screen. She told V magazine, "I hate it! Listen, make no mistake, I just get on it. I just go in and say, 'Oh f**k, let's do it,' and boom! If you complain about it or procrastinate it's not going to go away. It'...

Rihanna
Madame Tussauds London just added a new diva to their team of female artists. Today they revealed a new wax figure of Rihanna wearing a black dress featuring a large slit up the side of her leg.

We all know the pop star likes to show a little skin. Last week an Irish farmer kicked her off his land while she was filming a music video. The man didn't like her teeny bikini.

On September 24 while touring in Brazil, the pop star was criticized for wearing questionable clothing to a popular religious site. She wore ripped denim shorts and a neckace that spelled out the word "c**t."
