Stars like Ansel Elgort and his BFF Jerome Jarre are so cute that we couldn't imagine them ever looking bad in pics. But they guys are off on a new mission that encourages selfie-snappers everywhere to channel their best "ugly" faces for the sake of really LOL-worthy Instagram photos!
Web star Jerome kicked off a revolution by sharing purposely silly selfies on Instagram. "UGLY SELFIE COZ WE ALL CARE WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT OUR LOOK WHILE THE ONLY THING THAT TRULY MATTERS IS HOW WE LOOK INSIDE OUR HEARTS," Jerome captioned one pic, making his point in all caps.
Using #UglySelfieChallenge, Jerome challenged Ansel to post his own silly pic. Of course, the Fault in Our Stars actor came out full force with his own goofy photo!
"I like the idea. Too many people worry about how they are perceived through an app, looking like a cookie cutter pretty person" Ansel wrote about the challenge. "I understand why, because society is becoming this place where people judge each other on followers and likes. Stop worrying about being accepted, worry about being yourself. Maybe we should look in our camera roll for the most hilarious photo that we would never post and post it!"
Vine star Nash Grier also responded to Jerome's challenge, and challenged a few more of his friends to share their pics.
Clearly this trend is catching on, and we can't wait to see more guys' pics!
