We Can’t Stop Laughing at These Celebs’ Google Arts and Culture App Look-Alikes
If you’ve been on the internet anytime over the last 72 hours, you’ve probably noticed your friends posting photos of themselves with their fine art doppelgangers, courtesy of the Google Arts and Culture app. Celebrities are getting in on the fun too, and the results are (naturally) hilarious.
The app — which is available for free on Google Play for Android and in the App Store for iPhone — actually launched in 2016 but just added a new feature that went viral over the weekend. All you have to do is take a picture of yourself, and Google will compare it to thousands of paintings in its fine art database. In the end, you’ll be given a few images that look just like you. Or not.
A few people have been blown away by the accuracy of the app, but others aren’t as impressed with their look-alikes. Some are pretty sure Google is just laying down “a sick burn” — and TBH, sometimes it’s hard to disagree.
Check out some of the funniest celebrity results below!
Kristen Bell showed off two of her, er, twins: August Manns and De schilder Jan Asselijn.
Amanda Seyfried seemed pretty pleased with her result, “One summer afternoon” by Clewin Harcourt, even adding, “It does feel like summer today.”
Alyssa Milano, on the other hand, wasn’t feeling so cheery about her pick and made her thoughts clear with a simple, “F*ck off, Google.”
Kate Hudson got “Portrait of a Boy,” and while you might assume it’s because of her short hair, the guy in the work of art actually has quite a long ‘do.
Sarah Silverman opted to share two pics: one where she supposedly looks like a boy with a carrot, and a second that seems to match the photo above the comedian’s head as opposed to her own face. (We can kind of understand why Google had a little trouble with this one.)

Pete Wentz shared four of his matches, and while we can definitely see some resemblance in the first three comparisons, the fourth is the one that really caught his attention. “Feel real strong about my 40%,” he quipped in the caption.

Felicia Day tried two different shots of herself to see what Google could come up with. She’s “torn” when it comes to which is more accurate.

Jim Parsons ended up with “Portrait of Mikhail Ivanovich Terestjenko.” The Big Bang Theory star captioned his post, “Huh. That was fun.”
Our very favorite result of them all, though, may be Steve and Dustin from Stranger Things compared to Mary Cassette’s famous painting of a puffy-haired young mother with her curly-haired child.
