When we think fictional we think completely made up…. right?
Well, that is NOT always the case. Check out these famous “fictional” characters who were based off real life people!
1.) Ursula was inspired by a drag queen named Divine!
Don’t worry, Divine wasn’t into witchcraft BUT her bold makeup and curvaceous figure inspired the famous Ursula from The Little Mermaid !
2.) Hazel from Fault in Our Stars was inspired by a YouTuber on her cancer journey.
The heart breaking story of Hazel from Fault in Our Stars was inspired by a young lady named Esther Earl. Esther was friends with author John Green while battling her cancer. She would vlog about her health journey on YouTube until she unfortunately lost her battle at the age of 16. John Green then wrote Fault in Our Stars as a tribute to Esther.
3.) Norman Bates from Psycho was based off a real killer
Norman Bates was actually inspired by a man named Edward Gein. Brainwashed by his mother’s radical religious beliefs, Gein became quite the extreme person. When his mother passed away, he began performing heinous crimes and murdering several women.
4.) Piper Chapman from Orange is the New Black is a REAL
Yes, Piper Kerman is a real woman who plead guilty to a few crimes. Kerman (in real life) was involved in a drug-trafficking ring with her ex girlfriend Cleary Wolters as well as money laundering.
5.) Miss Piggy was based off a woman named Peggy Lee
The original Miss Piggy was ACTUALLY named Miss Piggy Lee, based off a famous singer named Peggy Lee. Unfortunately, Peggy Lee was slightly offended by the “copying” of her name and threatened to sue. The muppets creators then decided to drop the LEE at the end of Miss Piggy’s name to avoid any issues.
6.) Don Draper is based off a man named Matthew Weiner
Draper Daniels was a real-life ad man from the 1950s and apparently inspired the famous character of Don Draper from Mad Men.
7.) Ari Gold was based off Ari Emanuel
This one is the most obvious fictional characters based off a real life human. Ari Emanuel is a famous Hollywood agent that worked for Mark Wahlberg (just like in Entourage). Emmanuel is also great friends with one of the main executive producers of Entourage, who made sure the character of “Ari Gold” had very similar qualities to Emanuel.
