10 Iconic Pics Recreated by Our Favorite Stars

year ago

Certain moments mark our lives no matter how many years go by. Sometimes, we have the opportunity to immortalize those moments with a photo, and when this is the case, sometimes, the idea of recreating that shot comes to mind. The same thing happens to celebrities; we must admit that some accomplish the task with the utmost creativity and precision.

1. Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen vs. Sydney Sweeney and Maude Apatow

Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield’s pic is an iconic one. In 1957, both actresses were at the height of their careers. Loren feared that Mansfield’s dress would show more than necessary at an exclusive dinner, hence her sidelong glance.

Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen recreated the scene in a 2014 episode of Modern Family. In 2021, Sydney Sweeney and Maude Apatow continued the tradition and put their own spin on the famous photograph.

2. Scott Eastwood

The man in the photo on the wall is Clint Eastwood, and it was taken around 1961, shortly before Eastwood became a worldwide phenomenon. His son, Scott, who is following in his acting footsteps, made us travel back in time. The only thing that seems to have changed is the landline phone turned smartphone, as the similarities between father and son are striking.

3. Catherine Zeta-Jones with Michael Douglas & Co.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are a couple who, despite their 25-year age difference, show us that families that recreate photos together stay together.

4. The Avengers

Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk, also known as Chris E., Chris H., Robert, and Mark, took the original photograph in 2012 when The Avengers movie was released. Seven years later, the 4 superheroes recreated the original image to promote Avengers: Endgame.

5. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston is a die-hard Barbra Streisand fan and never misses a chance to prove it. In 2010, the actress channeled her inner Streisand love for a photo shoot, and in 2022, she posted the results as a tribute to Streisand’s birthday, with a caption that read, “Muse, legend, always inspired by the one and only 🤍 Happy @barbrastreisand day ❤️”

6. Tracee Ellis Ross

Diana Ross, the famous pop singer and actress has 5 children, and Tracee Ellis Ross is the second oldest. Tracee found a photo of her mother wearing a striking necklace and realized she had the exact same accessory hidden in her closet. She dusted it off and flawlessly recreated the original photo of Diana, which had been taken in the 1970s or 1980s.

7. Matthew Hoffman and Olivia Munn

Mathew Hoffman and Olivia Munn donned the tourist hat during a trip to London. The famous photo of Meghan Markle in front of Buckingham Palace returned to the present with the duo’s witty recreation.

8. Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis recreated the famous shower scene of her mother, Janet Leigh, in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho to promote the Scream Queens series.

9. Kate Winslet

Nearly 20 years after the premiere of Titanic, Kate Winslet was a guest on the Bear Grylls survival show. While climbing down a rock under the guidance of Grylls, the actress didn’t let the moment pass her by and recreated her and Leo’s iconic “I feel like I’m flying” scene.

10. Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne released her debut album, Let Go, in 2002, and singles like “Sk8er Boy,” “I’m With You,” and “Complicated” seem to have stood the test of time. We’re even listening to them right now as we write this piece. 20 years later, the singer recreated her iconic album cover and managed to take us back to the 2000s.

If you could recreate an iconic photograph, which one would you choose and why?
