What joy such a search brings! You have Johnny Depp as the Girl With a Pearl Earring (by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer), Leonardo DiCaprio as a Vincent van Gogh self portrait, and the likes of Angelina Jolie, Jack Nicholson, Steve Carell and Nicole Kidman looking all very regal in their classic resplendent-ness.
