Having seen the celebrity look alike webapp, I had some funny inspiration for testing. Let’s see how well it works and see if the celebrities look like themselves!
My Hollywood Twin, Johnny Depp, only looks like himself by 76%. That sucks for the algorithm developers. On the other hand, this guy has a hundred different faces in a hundred different roles, so what’s the wonder he doesn’t completely look like himself. One could also get a little philosophical and ask what it even means to look like yourself. Both Buddha and Heraclitus have said thousands of years ago that there is no permanence. If the cells in my body die and new cells are constantly born, why should I even look like myself by 100%?
Apparently Scarlett Johansson doesn’t even look like herself as a top match, but more like Lara Flynnn Boyle. Lost twins, or just hot babes? You may be the judge:
However, if there is once constant in the world where you can’t enter the same river twice and not even once, it’s the beloved Arnold Schwarzenegger with the well sculpted face of iron:
And who looks the most like a chimp? Jet Lee, Albert Einstein, and apparently also the late Yitzhak Rabin:
Last but not least, if you want to make another remake for the film Frankenstein, save yourself the heavy costs of makeup and special fx by hiring David Beckham as the lead role:
