Fans like to show their showbiz love in a variety of weird ways, and fan art is undoubtedly the funniest. However, when these stars are Photoshopped to look like their frankly rather terrible depictions, the results go from hilarious to absolutely ghastly.
Take this drawing of Justin Bieber, for example: his hair may be spot on, but the razor sharp-looking teeth and alien eyes are straight out of a horror film. And if this picture doesn’t give you sleepless nights, then the following 19 chilling reworkings definitely will.
Nicolas Cage is admittedly pretty odd-looking to begin with, but this strange scribble takes things to another level. Still, while his mouth may be slurred beyond recognition, at least here Cage benefits from a thicker hairline – a silver lining of sorts?
We could barely tell this was Zayn Malik, based on the confused goldfish expression sported by the singer in this dodgy drawing. The Photoshop is no better either – the results on the right look like someone’s first stab at computer animation – and leaves the former One Direction star looking like someone we hope never to encounter in a dark alley…
While this Photoshop may look like a character pulled from a David Lynch film, its deformed and swollen subject is actually a truly awful drawing of Barbadian pop star Rihanna. To the digital artist’s credit, though, they didn’t have much to go on with the original sketch.
Lady Gaga is known for her eccentric appearance, but this nightmarish new look is too much even by her outlandish standards. No beauty spot of any size could draw attention away from that face, let’s be honest.
We only have one question for the creator of this David Schwimmer doodle: what happened to his neck? The Friends star appears to have transformed into some slug-like creature in this horrific reimagining.
This ‘artist’ somehow managed to transform Angelina Jolie into a Bratz doll in this portrait. The Photoshop takes a similar approach; however, its withered features seem to show a toy that’s been left out in the sun too long. Yikes.
Inspiration can come in many forms: this Scarlett Johansson fan, for example, seems to have been inspired to put pencil to paper after a trip to a hall of mirrors. The contorted features in the accompanying Photoshop revision, then, show the glamorous actress in a new, and not very nice, light.
Though he’s always managed to stay trim, Brad Pitt seems to have gained a few extra pounds in this unflattering artwork. This Photoshop, then, duly shows what the actor would look like after a month-long Twinkie binge – not that we’d blame him, though, as they are pretty addictive.
It’s hard to make Jennifer Aniston look unsexy, but this budding Picasso somehow managed to accomplish the complete opposite of alluring. Putting Jen’s pout aside, the picture’s cherry on top comes in the form of her grotesque bulging eyes.
While this artist definitely shows more artistic skills than any other in this roundup, their likeness of Harry Styles definitely needs some work. After all, the One Direction star looks more like goonish stand-up Carrot Top than a teen heartthrob.
Have you ever wondered what Matt Damon would look like with a square jaw and rougher features? Can’t say we have either, but judging by this gargoyle-like abomination we can tell that the result would not be pleasant to look at.
It’s somewhat strange to see Mel Gibson reinterpreted as an animated children’s character, considering the actor’s less-than-cuddly persona. Here, though, the actor is remade as the star of his very own Saturday morning cartoon, albeit a pretty dang disturbing one.
What is it about eyes that fan artists find so hard to draw? This admirer has George Michael’s beard and jawline down to a tee, but the misshapen eyes – positioned halfway down the ‘Faith’ singer’s face – give this picture an ominous quality indeed.
Based on the simplicity of the drawing, we can only guess that a child created this Daniel Radcliffe fan piece. We can’t say the same about the macabre Photoshop, however, which imagines a Tim Burton-directed version of Harry Potter.
We knew Dr. House was grumpy, but we can’t remember Hugh Laurie ever looking as mean and moody as he does here. While the drawing is pretty straightforward, the Photoshop nevertheless takes a more abstract turn – by giving the star an alien-like pointed head.
Admittedly, this Tom Cruise drawing is pretty well done; however, the artist seemed to have a problem putting the actor’s features in the right place. As a result, the Photoshopped version depicts Cruise suffering from a nasty allergic reaction to a peanut.
Perhaps the person responsible for this piece of fan art has a crush on Arnold Schwarzenegger, seeing as how, here, the action star looks strangely like a romantic lead. We wonder if there’s an accompanying piece of fan fiction as well…
Either this was the artist’s first attempt at drawing, or zero effort was put into this totally unrecognizable Kate Winslet piece. We could say the same for the Photoshop as well, which makes the Oscar winner’s head look like it’s being inflated.
Michael Pitt may not be the most famous face on this list, but his fan art Photoshop is definitely the most terrifying. The Boardwalk Empire star’s features are barely recognizable and look as if they’re slowly being pulled into a black hole.
