30 Famous Portraits Given A Smile Using FaceApp And It’s Both Creepy And Hilarious

Published 5 years ago

If there’s one thing that a lot of famous painted portraits have in common, it’s that most of them don’t show people smiling. Unless it’s Joseph Ducreux, of course. However, someone decided to change that and gave a handful of famous portraits FaceApp makeovers.

Have you ever wondered how the people in American Gothic would look smiling? Or Frida? Or Beethoven? Well, the short answer is that they look pretty funny – and kind of creepy. So maybe there’s a reason most of them aren’t smiling. See the smiling portraits in the gallery below and if you like FaceApp makeovers, check out your favorite celebrities turned old using the aging filter here!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
