Celebrity Funhouse: New Optical Illusion Sees Famous Faces Turn Ugly

A wild new video shows the ugly side of A-List celebrities such as Liv Tyler, Tom Cruise, J Lo, Drew Barrymore, George Clooney, Cindy Crawford, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie!  (And to think of the collective billions those stars have spent to look super-beautiful!)

The video creates an odd illusion by having the viewer stare at a cross hair point in the middle of the screen, directly between the photographs of two winsome, glamorous superstars. At the start, the celebrities' perfectly gorgeous visages seem as lovely as always.

As the pace of the video picks up, the celebrity mugs start to stretch and become distorted, with eyes opening far too wide (like Joan Rivers after her fiftieth face lift) and chins grotesquely stretching down longer than Jay Leno's.

The researchers responsible for the eye-popping video have yet to fully discover the reason why our brains create the face-destroying effect, but it is enjoyable to watch some of the world's most beautiful faces turn ugly, albeit briefly. You may watch the video for yourself below:
