Artists Attempted to Imagine Celebrities in Amusingly Appropriate Professions Based on Their Names

Once upon a time, a person’s surname revealed their occupation. It was simple, straightforward, and a bit boring.

That’s right, folks. We now have people with last names like Painter becoming artists and Cook becoming chefs. It’s almost like they were born to do it! And while we can’t change our names to match our desired professions, we can certainly have a good laugh imagining celebrities in jobs that fit their names.

From Tom Cruise manning an ocean liner to Orlando Bloom cultivating flowers, these pictures will have you chuckling in no time.
