Salma Hayek Used FaceApp to Gender-Swap Her Photos and Fans Are Going Gaga
Last year, people went crazy over the app’s “old” filter and soon hilarious photos were going viral of “elderly” kids with wrinkles and celebs who looked 30 years older. If someone didn’t age their own photo, the internet did it for them.
This time, it’s the app’s gender swapping feature that is cracking people up. There are photos floating around of Beyoncé with her face plastered onto a man’s countenance, and plenty of other gender-swapped faces including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Shakira, Eminem, Taylor Swift, and Kelly Rowland.
Hayek decided to take matters into her own hands and the results have fans going crazy.
Salma Hayek recently went viral for no makeup photos
Hayek posted a makeup-free selfie on Instagram in May and it wound up going viral. Fans praised the 53-year-old for not using photoshop or altering her appearance.
One wrote, “Wow she just does not age. How is that possible,” and another person added “You need no makeup. I’ve always thought you were the most beautiful woman in the world!”
Hayek often posts pictures without cosmetics or filters. Last week, she shared a before and after picture of her gray roots, revealing she dyed them for work. While her followers complimented her for being a natural beauty, one of Hayek’s recent posts is racking up curious onlookers and plenty of comments.
Hayek used FaceApp to gender-swap her face
We’re not sure how many celebrities are remixing their own likenesses with FaceApp, but Hayek was game. She put up a photo collage of herself that utilized the gender switching filter, and we don’t need to say anything else.
Take a look at the smoldering pictures and you’ll wonder if Salma Hayek has a twin brother out there somewhere. For the record, she does have a brother named Sami but they are not twins.
What you’re thinking right now is
what many of Hayek’s fans thought when they first saw these images. She wrote a
simple caption in Spanish and English: “What do you think… would I have made
a good looking man?”
The post garnered more than 11,000 comments, with one person summing things up with an “OMG.”
