Celebrities are posing like dinosaurs in the newest selfie craze ‘T-Rex hands’

Move over duck face and fish gape, there’s a new selfie craze in town and this time it’s inspired by dinosaurs.


It’s called ‘T-Rex hands’ and, you’ve guessed it, is named after the pose of a tyrannosaurus rex. You might not have heard it referred to like that before, but you’ve definitely seen the trend in action.

Here’s how it’s done: You bend your fingers like a claw and position your hand over your chin, hair or face. Zoom out and you’ll discover that you look like the spitting image of a T-Rex while doing it.

Don’t believe that this trend is really a thing? Here’s 10 celebs we’ve spotted rocking T-Rex hands.
