Celebrities, they’re just like us! They shop at the supermarket. They drop their kids off at school. And they get distracted by wacky social media trends. That last one might be more of a recent development in the last few years as more and more hashtag campaigns and trendy apps reach the zeitgeist.
The latest trend is the image-altering FaceApp. All those pictures of old people you’ve seen scattered around the internet lately? They come courtesy of the app. It takes a photo, adds a few wrinkles and age spots, and then show you exactly what you’ll look like in your ripe old age.
Usually, celebrities want to look as young as possible. They’re always at the forefront of anti-aging products and plastic surgery. But the FaceApp trend has a lot of famous folks sharing pictures of what they’ll look like after the natural progression of time.
Everyone from reality stars to athletes to platinum pop stars is getting in on FaceApp, and the results are pretty wild. Some celebs look good for their (fake old) age, some look a little worse for the wear, and others are totally unrecognizable. But, one thing they all have in common is that they’re worth checking out.
1. Adam Scott wasn’t too happy with his FaceApp results.
2. Busy Phillips thinks her results are pretty realistic.
3. Carrie Underwood still looks pretty glam as an old lady.
4. Here’s LeBron James is sporting quite a few grey hairs.
5. The Jonas Brothers made the best joke ever, quoting one of their songs and saying their FaceApp photo offers a peek at “the year 3000.”

I'll be glad when people get tired of using FaceApp & posting photos of me as an ancient relic. The only one who has aged halfway decently in these pics is my #LemonHairedLuke action figure. #FaceAPPalling pic.twitter.com/kOJgOG44iA
