Why These Celebrities have Surprisingly Never been to the Met Gala

The Met Gala is arguably the biggest and most photographed red carpet in the world, with hundreds of stars from the worlds of film, music, art, and fashion descending on the Metropolitan Museum of Art for one night only.

Having been a regular annual fixture since the early 1970s, you might assume that every notable name in Hollywood has attended at some point or another, but there have been some surprising absences.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that they weren’t invited (in fact probably quite the opposite, who wouldn’t want Meryl Streep on their table?) but perhaps that they simply chose not to go, or had other plans. Here are five surprising names who’ve never been on the Met Gala guest list.

Meryl Streep

Despite being one of the most beloved stars in Hollywood, Meryl Streep has never attended the Met Gala. She’s a regular on the awards season circuit (mainly because she wins them all) but otherwise tends only to make appearances when she has a film or TV series to promote, preferring to spend the rest of her time out of the limelight.

Angelina Jolie

She’s no stranger to making a statement on the red carpet, but the Met Gala is one red carpet Angelina Jolie has never set foot on. We’d love to see her on the guest list in the future wearing something custom-made from one of her go-to labels, like Elie Saab or Atelier Versace.

Jennifer Aniston

Despite being a regular on the awards season circuit and at the occasional fashion dinner, everyone’s favorite Friend has never appeared at the Met Gala. While she’s never really been one to step outside of her comfort zone when it comes to fashion, we’d still love to see her bring her signature effortless elegance to the Met steps one year.

Courteney Cox

Courteney Cox has millions of fashion moments from her entire career, captivating us with her beauty but she never appeared on MetGala and it is definitely a sad moment for all of her fans.

Lisa Kudrow

Lisa Kudrow didn’t appear much on red carpets but still, her fans have wanted to see her in MetGala forever. She played many roles over the year but Phoebe Buffay from Friends might be the most memorable one for her fans.


The British singer is another star who’s surprisingly never graced the Met Gala with her presence. Considering that her A-list friends – including Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone – are often in attendance, we imagine she’d be a popular addition to the guest list.

Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer

It is surprising for fans of the show as to why no one from cast of Friends made an appearance on the MetGala as they were definitely the type and they were so much fun when the show was famous. They could have easily bedazzled everyone with their appearance.

Britney Spears

Despite her love of glitzy costumes and bodycon dresses (plus double denim, back in the day), Britney Spears has never stepped out on fashion’s biggest stage.
