GALLERY: Accidental Hipsters in Movies

The hipster formula is as follows: If exclusivity is cool and hideous fashion is undesirable, then adopting hideous fashions because they are undesirable makes one exclusive. And this exclusivity, in turn, makes one cool. Now apply this philosophy to everything you own and... voila! You are a hipster! You will now be in the market for a Polaroid camera and declare that you were listening to bands no one's heard of before it was cool to listen to bands no one's heard of.

For those too square to know, hipsters are currently stuck on a nostalgic obsession with both the 1980s and 1880s, adopting the silliest and most anachronistic fashion choices of both simultaneously. The result is a horrifying mix of big glasses, curly mustaches, tight T-shirts and brimmed hats. We couldn't help but notice that Shia LaBeouf's Prohibition-era style in the new gangster film "Lawless" looks oddly... contemporary. So we've compiled a look back at movie characters who didn't realize they were being hip before anyone else was.
