Snapchat recently released a “Gender Swap” filter, allowing people to see what they would look like as the opposite gender. Instantly, Gender Swap photos began going viral, as people discovered they would make surprisingly good-looking, or horribly bad-looking, opposite gender versions of themselves.
But why should ordinary people have all the fun? Many of today’s most iconic male actors are renowned for their hunky looks. But will that X-factor translate to female versions of themselves? Prepare to be stunned. Here are 10 popular male celebrities reimagined as women thanks to Snapchat’s Gender Swap filter.
You might be surprised to see Chris Hemsworth make such a lovely woman through the Snapchat Gender Swap filter, but really you shouldn’t be — Marvel genderswapped Thor in the comics in 2014 to great success. Maybe we’ll get that female Thor movie after all. No recasting necessary!
Will Smith’s gender swap transformation is like someone combined both of his characters from his sure-to-be hit 2019 films. He’s got the youthful appearance of his “younger self” clone character in Gemini Man, but evokes the reaction fans got from seeing him transformed into the blue Genie in Aladdin.
Through Snapchat’s Gender Swap filter, Johnny Depp looks like Captain Jack Sparrow if he shaved off the goatee but kept the eyeliner and (presumably) earrings.
Snapchat’s Gender Swap filter couldn’t come up with nearly as pretty a hairstyle for Tom Cruise as the flowing golden wig he donned in Interview with the Vampire.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
Speaking of hair, why did Snapchat’s Gender Swap filter give The Rock a Cruella de Vil look?
You might be shocked at Jason Momoa’s look, but considering Snapchat had to get rid of his Aquaman beard, the Gender Swap filter did a pretty good job. He looks a bit like Rachel Leigh Cook if you squint.
Brad Pitt already had a pretty face; he makes a fairly convincing woman with Snapchat’s Gender Swap filter. Dare I say as a woman he sort of resembles his lovely ex-wife Angelina Jolie?
Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio, renowned for his boyish good looks, might have had girlish good looks as well in the Snapchat Gender Swap filter, but that hat does Lady Leo no favors.
Robert De Niro
Robert De Niro is one of the greatest actors of all time, but clearly he was overlooked for the role he was born to play: Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings.
Fans of British actor Idris Elba have been clamoring for the handsome star to play James Bond for years. But there’s no doubt about it, he makes a better Bond than Bond girl.
