Ah, photoshop. Truly, it’s one of the modern wonders of the world. Sometimes it gives us hilarious fails, and other times, it offers us a truly magical visual experience. And the latest photoshop trend to go viral falls very much into the latter camp.
Ard Gelinck had a truly ingenious idea, photoshopping celebrities alongside younger versions of themselves. Some will make you laugh, some will tug on your heartstrings – but all of them are things of beauty. Scroll on for all of our favorites.

Still a cutie, not gonna lie.

His looks have changed but his goofy personality hasn’t!
And who said he never smiles?

How does she still look this good?
