We're going to do a little bit of side-stepping here for a moment as this piece isn't so much movie news as its just something that we spotted while surfing these here internets and thought we should pass on to our readers. Call it a reason to smile ear-to-ear this fine Monday morning. What we have for you now is a collection of photoshop pieces from artist Ard Gelinck over on Instagram. And as you can see from the pictures we have embedded below, what the man does ever so beautifully is he places celebrated actors such as Keanu Reeves, Will Smith, Emma Watson, George Clooney, Michael J Fox, Dwyane The Rock Johnson, Leonardo DiCaprio, and many, many more as we know them today alongside their younger counterparts.

You're welcome.

Feel free to browse through the phenomenal photoshop pieces that we chose below and then head on over to Gelinck's Instagram page and scope out the hundreds of further pieces that he has assembled over the years. Hundreds, you might say. Yes, hundreds. In fact, the man's Instagram is so filled with these kinds of pictures that I wasted a good two hours this morning looking through them, my hard horror heart all aflutter. But in the spirit of not overloading our site with Instagram embeds, we will instead just go ahead and share with you guys what we believe to be the top pieces from Gelinck's collection.

And since you're all bound to ask me later anyhow, at the end of the day, I have to say that my personal favorite pieces of the bunch are the ones that feature Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe all grown up and standing all kinds of gorgeous next to their rather dorky and gawky younger counterparts. But maybe that's just because I'm such a massive fan of author J.K. Rowling's fantasy films from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone all the way through Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II. Sure Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is more and more of a letdown each and every time I see it, but that's not what we're here to discuss today.

And since I'm just kind of running on tangents for the time being, how adorable is that pic of old and young The Sixth Sense and Pay It Forward actor Haley Joel Osment? Too adorable is the right answer to that rhetorical question. Too adorable.

Now let it be known that, sure, some of the artist's photoshop offerings on display are a bit shoddy. But, whatever. You get the point. And after all, for every shoddy piece of nostalgia art that Gelink sports in his impressive collection, there is one that knocks it out of the park. Such as the one featuring Keanu Reeves. Or the one with Neil Patrick Harris posing with Doogie Howser. So fair enough, I say. Now join me as we all slow clap Gelinck for his amazing work. Slow clap, guys. The killer pics from this phenomenal photoshop collection come to us from artist Ard Gelinck over on Instagram Ard Gelinck over on Instagram.
