Celebrity Fakes

The last few years have seen an alarming surge in the number of ‘deepfake’ videos, where technology is used to take an existing video and replace the people involved with somebody else's likeness.

And while these types of videos have popped up in a few different ways, such as to create ‘fake news’, their most common use is in the world of pornography, with the faces of celebrities being placed into explicit videos.

Deepfake pornography isn’t yet a crime in itself, although those who produce it could still face charges of harassment, and victims could claim defamation or copyright. In addition, many websites such as Pornhub have banned the videos, although many can still be found on the site.

So, which celebrities are the biggest targets when it comes to deepfake and other types of fake porn videos?

Methodology

We took a list of the 100 most followed celebrities on Instagram, according to Trackalytics, limiting our list to celebrities over 18 who are well known in the UK/USA.

For each celebrity, we went through all search results and manually counted the number of videos listed on Pornhub with their name in the title and discredited any that clearly didn't include a deepfake or fake version of them in the video.

Note that not all results are necessarily fake porn videos, as some may include real sex tapes or non-pornographic videos that have been uploaded to Pornhub (which is the case for a number of male musicians on the list).
