Wow - that's amazing. Johny Depp and Tom Cruise look so different from their screen images.

I love what he did here!  Very amusing, but with a serious message. 

There's always the danger of ordinary people trying too hard to look like those airbrushed celebrity images.  That way lies eating disorders, bad self-esteem etc.  Things like these pictures redress the balance.

I always feel uncomfortable with stuff like this.  'Normal' people aren't all bad dressers and overweight.  If they weren't film stars it doesn't mean they would be slobs a s'normal' people..

Some of them, yes, spot on. Some of them, a bit to 'obvs' for me.

But then I don't recognise the celebrity world - my celebrities are people who are themselves first and foremost, in looks and in character. A human version of WYSIWYG if you like. People such as academics who made it to positions of higher academia by hard work, brain power and world-changing ideas in some cases. Or musicians whose talent has outlasted their looks by at least 30 years.


Described by one of my clients as 'a literary grammarian', writing, researching and reading are requirements for sanity, at least this side of the keyboard.
