"I love that you’re not verified and you are just normal like the rest of us. But with more money, probably," one fan commented one of her videos.

She also may pop on your feed as she also has a film podcast called "Frank Film Club," with Hannah Williams, Lowri Roberts, described as "The club for lovers and makers of film," and clips of this are shared on TikTok.

Elle Fanning

Another celeb who joined TikTok under the radar is actor Elle Fanning, with the username @user6754189318472.

From her profile, it's clear she loves an interactive filter and duetting influencers, creating parody versions of the original video.

A fan wrote on one of Fanning's video's: "This account is so strange but I am here for it."

Though Fanning's secret TikTok was revealed when she appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallonin January last year to promote second season of her historical comedy show The Great.

Jimmy asked Elle the TikTok account @/user6754189318472 is really her.

“I confirm that is me,” she said. “I think in the first lockdown, right when everything started, TikTok so exploded. And I was with my friend and he was like, ‘You should make one. Let’s see what happens. Just do it. Don’t put a profile picture. Don’t change the name. Let’s see.

"I posted and it got a lot of followers. TikTok then DM’ed me on my Instagram and was like, ‘You surpassed this certain number.’ Like, I was just doing it as a joke! I post when I want, but it’s silly. It’s like a little secret, not-so-secret now.”

Stanley Tucci

If you haven't been on TucciTok, then where the heck have you been?

It's an undeniable fact that Stanley Tucci is an international treasure, and his TikTok presence, with 1.4m followers only solidifies this status.

Acting isn't the only area Tucci excels in as the 62-year-old has various cooking videos ranging from risotto, a simple B.L.T., to pasta as breakfast leftovers, as well as taking us along on his adventures in Italy and trip to the UK, (the former for his CNN cooking show Searching for Italy and the latter for his book Taste).

"Stanley Tucci cooking is my comfort tiktok," a fan commented under one of his videos.

Another said: "I want to have dinner at Stanley's house," while someone else added: "Love when Stanley pops up on my feed."

Looks like we're all on the Tucci train.

A lot of us Gen Z lot grew up watching and listening to the Jonas Brothers on Disney Channel, and they continue to entertain with new music along with a lively TikTok presence.
