Artist Uses AI To Create Incredible Celebrity What Ifs

Everyone is talking about Artificial Intelligence right now, and one of the coolest areas where AI is blowing up is the world of art. More and more artists are using these tools to create digital artworks that have unbelievable amounts of detail, feature unique scenarios, and get people talking. That’s where we meet Jeremy Pomeroy, founder of Total Marketing Australia, talented digital creator, and now: “AI enabler.” Pomeroy uses AI to create unique, thought-provoking illustrations of alternate universes and “what ifs.” Some of his coolest work visualizes what the hypothetical children of former celebrity couples or fictional pairings would have looked like. Enjoy!

If Rose had shared her spot on that door…

Many people believe Jack could have survived the events of the Titanic if he’d only climbed onto that wobbly floating door with Rose. And even director James Cameron begrudgingly admits that yes, in real life the door probably would have supported both of them, and Jack wouldn’t have frozen to death in the ice-cold waters. So consider this if you will: Jack and Rose both survive the terrible sinking, and they go on to marry and have cute children. That’s the premise of this AI-generated image, and we love the old-timey details.

The Hollywood family that could have been

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were the ultimate couple in Hollywood during the early 2000s. Then, to the sadness of fans everywhere, they divorced amid rumors of an affair between Pitt and Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. But what if that hadn’t happened? What if they’d stayed together and had some no doubt perfect children? That’s what this AI image has illustrated. In real life, though, Aniston has some strong thoughts about having kids. She said in a 2016 essay for HuffPost, “The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant… points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they're not married with children.” 

The house of Spearlake

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were another celebrity super couple who split up before children came into the picture, so Pomeroy has created this cool picture of what the pair of them might have looked like as the parents of three kids. The artist told Insider during a 2023 interview, “By imagining what the families of celebrity couples would look like if they had stayed together, I sought to engage viewers in thought-provoking narratives and spark conversations about relationships, identity, and the dynamics of fame.”

Actors or characters?

Wait, is this Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock or their characters from the movie Speed? Or maybe even their characters from The Lake House? Whatever the intention, it works, because the Reeves-Bullock partnership is legendary. They’ve been friends for a very long time, and, although they’ve never officially dated, they’ve both confessed to having had crushes on the other. This image imagines them with three kids, all of whom look like a perfect combination of the both of them.
