They say the camera adds 10 pounds, but can it also add a few inches in height?
Clever angles, props, and perspective on screen might help those who are a bit “vertically challenged,” but these male celebrities didn’t let being comparatively short stop them from having huge careers.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if your favorite celebrities were morphed into one single person?
ThatNordicGuy (Norwegian Pedro Berg Johnsen) is a digital artist who uses a combination of software to perfectly blend the faces of famous people and answer that very question.
“I use a bit of Photoshop for final touches and editing, but the actual blending is done in a program called SqirlzMorph. It’s free, and pretty easy to use,” Johnsen said. “As for time, everything between two hours and a couple of days. It depends on image size, what level of detail I’m going for and how invested I am in the project.”
So if you’ve ever wondered what stunning people would result from the morphing of stars like Taylor Swift and Emma Watson or Jared Leto and Heath Ledger, prepare for the mind-bending results.
We know there are a lot of people out there who claim to look like their favorite celebrity and that there are some eerie similarities between celebrities and people from the past. But what about celebrities who look like other fellow celebrities?
You might not have noticed it until they’re placed side-by-side, but the resemblance is truly uncanny.
They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and, when you have a celebrity parent, that can mean the apple is one of those shiny, over-priced pieces of fruit from Whole Foods.
In other words, looking just like your famous parent no doubt comes with certain advantages. And, while most of us resemble our parents in some way, there is no doubt as to who these children call Mom and Dad.
There’s really no way to argue against the fact that actors are paid insane amounts of money — more money than 99.9 percent of us will ever see in our lives or those of generations that come after us.
But putting that fact aside, it’s always interesting to hear which actors are paid the most insane amounts of money for creating the entertainment that we spend our own money on.
And, for the third year in a row, Robert Downey Jr.’s $80 million payday is more than any other leading man on the planet — $30 million above Hong Kong hero Jackie Chan’s second place haul, to be exact, according to Forbes’ annual list.
The highest-paid actors, who hail from seven countries, earned a combined $941 million before taxes and fees between June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015.
The list measures earnings before subtracting management fees and taxes; figures are based on data from Nielsen, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with agents, managers, lawyers — and stars themselves.
(Forbes said that a separate list of highest-paid actresses will be published later.)
