Starsuckers is a 2009 British documentary film aiming to expose the “shams and deceit involved in creating a pernicious celebrity culture”.

Directed by Chris Atkins, director of the 2007 documentary Taking Liberties, it shows the production team planting a variety of celebrity-related stories in the UK media, such as a claim that the singer Avril Lavigne had been seen asleep in a nightclub. A variety of tabloid newspapers accepted the stories without corroboration or evidence.
