Mary Elizabeth Kelly has gone viral on TikTok multiple times for impersonating celebrities.
“Mouth acting” involves contorting her face, particularly her mouth, into the shape that mimics famous actors. Along with the change in voice, it makes Kelly’s impressions particularly memorable. Barrymore tends to smile while she talks, for example, while Jennifer Coolidge sticks her lips out. Keira Knightley’s jaw has an under-bite, while Emma Stone pushes her bottom teeth further back. Kelly’s original mouth acting video, impersonating these celebrities and more, has over 14 million views.
Kelly studied acting at Northwestern University, where she specialized in musical theatre. Kelly realized she was “made for a screen, not necessarily for a stage,” so she moved to LA last year with her husband to pursue a career in television and movies.
Kelly said she’s always been analytical when she watches movies, constantly thinking about what actors have been in before, or what accents they are putting on.
She considers herself more of a mimic — watching someone over and over until the impression clicks into place: “It’s a sort of muscle memory.”
