Stop and Take a Selfie Right Now Because This App Finds Your Celebrity Twin
Get ready to stop and take a selfie right now because there's a new site that's about to take over your damn life. POPSUGAR's very own #Twinning tool has become one of those addictive things that we can't help trying . . . then trying again, and again after that. Like Google's viral Arts and Culture Face Match, it's not quite a game, not quite a meme, but you'll definitely want to share the results of your celebrity twin matches with friends. Some of them are perfect; some look nothing like you — and that's the fun of it.
It's simple: #Twinning analyzes a selfie or uploaded photo, then compares it to a massive database of celebrity photos to find matches, and finally presents your top five look-alikes.
The tool itself is pretty simple: it analyzes a selfie or uploaded photo, compares it to a massive database of celebrity photos to find matches, and finally gives you a "twinning percentage" for your top five look-alikes. You might pair with a famous politician, an old-school Hollywood starlet, or a reality TV personality, and the results will vary based on which photo you upload!
Because of this, I've found myself repeatedly trying #Twinning with different angles, hairstyles, lighting, and makeup levels. (Maybe I'm just waiting for the tool to recognize me as Natalie Portman's long-lost sister? Who's to say! I'm fine, I'm totally fine.)
All across my office, you can hear POPSUGAR employees cackling with laughter over their matches. Do I really look like my mom's favorite '90s soap star? You're a 35-year-old woman — how on earth is Jacob Tremblay your match? And at press time, nearly 50K people have found their twins in the database, so the rest of the world is clearly beginning to take notice!
Check out some of POPSUGAR's very own celebrity matches ahead, then prepare to be hooked when you try the free tool yourself. Let us know your doppelgänger(s), whether they're spot-on or hilariously wrong — it's all in good fun!
