Celebrities are using the app that finds your art doppleganger and the results are hilarious
There's a new app that's taking the world by storm. While everyone has been obsessed with Snapchat filters for their selfies, the new thing has a bit of a cultural edge to it. Well, sort of, anyway.
Apparently, there's a new feature from the Google Arts & Culture app that lets you find your doppelgänger in art history. For both iOS and Android users, they can take a selfie on the app and track down exactly what subject of a classical painting looks like them. The results are a broad range of wildly off-the-mark to absolutely spot-on, but are hilarious regardless.
Now it seems that various celebrities have jumped on the trend, posting their results on social media. Have a look at these celebs' doubles and see if you think they match up.

While some of these are extremely far off (what is going on with Kristen Bell's!?) there are some that are surprisingly similar, at least as far as some basic features go. I think I'm going to have to download this app to try it out a bit. As a bonus, I can pretend to know something about art history at the end of the day.
