There is not much in common between Hollywood A-listers and Hindu ascetics in India. However, now an AI artist has imagined how some of the top Hollywood actors would look if they were to revoke all worldly privileges and live as a sadhu in some holy Indian city like Varanasi.
These portraits were posted online by an AI art account on Instagram named Psycadelic Art (@wild.trance). While sharing these portraits, @wild.trance wrote: “In a hypothetical scenario where Hollywood celebrities become Indian monks, it would involve a significant transformation of their lifestyles, beliefs, and priorities. Here are some Aiarts of what this scenario might look like. Kindly tag our page @wild.trance if you share 🙏Thank you.”
The portraits were of actors Keanu Reeves, Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Will Smith, and Harrison Ford in their sadhu avatars. These pictures were made using a prompt-based AI art tool, Midjourney.
This is not the first time that Hollywood stars have become the subject of AI art. In April, against the backdrop of the holy month of Ramzan, an AI art series showing some of the most popular celebrities working in a busy food market went viral on Instagram. Created by AI art enthusiast Jyo John Mulloor (@jyo_john_mulloor), the series depicted celebrities like Keanu Reeves, Will Smith, and Tom Cruise, among others, working in a busy streetside open food market during the night.
