The 8 Best Celebrity Google Arts and Culture Selfies

Hollywood is having a very high-minded moment.

If you've ever wanted to be part of a social media trend that's a little bit more high-brow than the #KyloRenChallenge, then the Google Arts & Culture app is tailor-made for you.

The viral app, which topped the charts for iOS and Android last weekend, simply asks you to take a photo of your face, after which it scans thousands of images in the Google art collection from across 70 countries worldwide in order to find a portrait that most closely resembles yours.

In addition to telling you the name of the painting and where it is housed—thereby making you more erudite—it also tells you the percentage of the match, so that you're not too disappointed if you end up being matched by Fat Woman Eating Apple.

There are so many people finding their Renaissance dopplegangers, in fact, that even the celebrities have joined in on the fun. Here are are some our favorites. And for more some more silly fun, check out the 20 Crazy Facts That Will Blow Your Mind.
