We all know where Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy ended up. But the Sorting Hat would have a very interesting time with these celebrities.

Emilia Clarke: Gryffindor

Ever wonder what the Harry Potter Sorting Hat would do with your favorite celebrities? Well, we asked it. (OK, we asked it in our minds.) And here's what it said.

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke joins brave Harry Potter in Gryffindor. The actress recently confirmed that, nope, that was no body double in the Season 6 nude scene at the Dothraki temple. And yep, she's proud of that fact... as she should be. Total Gryffindor move.

Kylie Jenner: Slytherin

The teenage reality star recently claimed to have "started wigs," spurring side-eyes from Nicki Minaj, Cher, and millions of ancient dead Egyptians.

Channing Tatum: Hufflepuff

Does he love the spotlight? Of course. Every stripper-turned-movie actor does. But Tatum also exercises. Like, a lot. Like, for hours a day. Like, enough to easily persuade a Sorting Hat to put Tatum in the workhorse of Hogwarts houses.

Taylor Swift: Gryffindor

When she was just 14, Swift straight-up walked away from an RCA contract because she wanted to record her own material, not someone else's. Welcome to the brave, ballsy Gryffindor common room, Taylor.

Kanye West: Slytherin

It's not just that infamous Taylor Swift moment (though that was a classic Slytherin move if there ever was one). It's the constant stream of stuff that Kanye says. For example: "I'm assuming I'm probably wearing a $2,000 shirt, but I got it for free from the designer, so."

Jennifer Lawrence: Gryffindor

She's always fearlessly outspoken, of course, but the way she handled the celebrity cell phone hacking scandal? Now that was Gryffindor behavior at its finest.

Jenna Marbles: Hufflepuff

Sure, Jenna Marbles is outspoken. And anyone who puts herself out there on YouTube like she does has to be brave. But at her core, Marbles is an everywoman -- a former bartender/go-go dancer/tanning-salon-attendant whose best work always reminds her fans that she's just like us. Only funnier.

Adele: Gryffindor

Let's just say that there's a lot of pressure to look a certain way when you're famous... and blockbuster mega-talent Adele could not care less.

"I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion," she has said. "I don't find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I've never had a problem with the way I look. I'd rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym."

Donald Trump: Slytherin

Does this need justifying? It doesn't, right?

Chris Evans: Hufflepuff

According to his Marvel Universe co-star Robert Downey Jr., this is the kind of thing that Evans asks his fellow actors before stepping onto a red carpet: "Bro, I don't know - should you go first, or I should go first?" If that isn't Hufflepuff, we don't know what is.

Drake: Gryffindor

When he first broke big, his sound was totally unique. Now, Drake is known as the face of Canadian rap, with a style that's launched a thousand imitators.

Jaden Smith: Hufflepuff

His daring looks may make you think of Gryffindor, but consider: During the 2016 Coachella music festival, while other stars were eating in the VIP area, Smith chose to get his food in the crew catering section. Hufflepuffs aren't into special treatment, and it appears that the admirable Smith isn't, either.

Beyonce: Gryffindor

Gryffindors are not only outgoing, but also forward-thinking, fearless and bold. That description pretty much sums up Beyonce, who proclaims her feminism in sky-high letters and isn't afraid to take on politically divisive issues in her music and videos.

Emma Watson: Ravenclaw

Oh, the irony. Hermione was Gryffindor all the way, but the actress behind her attended an Ivy League college, majoring in English literature. That kind of brain belongs in Ravenclaw.

Kit Harington: Hufflepuff

See what we said about Tatiana Maslany: When you know more about the possible parentage of the character someone plays than you do about the actor who portrays him, it means the guy is all about the work... Hufflepuff-style.

Rashida Jones: Ravenclaw

Three words: High school mathlete.

Amandla Stenberg: Gryffindor

She's known by many as Rue from the first installment of The Hunger Games, but Stenberg is so much more. The teen actress is already known for her outspoken activism and advocacy across a wide range of hot-button issues, and she takes them all on fearlessly.

Tatiana Maslany: Hufflepuff

We know more about Maslany's many Orphan Black characters than we do about her, and that's how Hufflepuffs like it: The work comes first.

Teresa Giudice: Slytherin

She was sentenced to 15 months in prison for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. But instead of owning up to her crimes, the reality star has done her best to shift the blame to others. That's Slytherin behavior at its best.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson: Ravenclaw

He doesn't just host shows about science. He doesn't just Tweet about science. The astrophysicist love love loves science. And that's why he's a Ravenclaw. Never stop learning, Neil!

Natalie Portman: Ravenclaw

Yes, she did that unfortunate series of Star Wars prequels. But! She's also co-authored two scientific papers, including this one from her Harvard days: "Frontal Lobe Activation During Object Permanence: Data from Near-Infrared Spectroscopy."

Kesha: Gryffindor

Standing up to the powers that be in the music industry takes serious bravery... and this Gryffindor has got it.

Mayim Bialik: Ravenclaw

This Big Bang Theory actress is more than just funny. She's scary smart -- so much so that she actually has a Ph.D. in neuroscience.

Gina Carano: Hufflepuff

This actress literally worked (and worked) her way to the top, slugging it out as a martial arts fighter for years before getting her shot at the big screen.

Kobe Bryant: Slytherin

If there's one thing a Slytherin is all about, it's exclusivity, to the point of elitism. Here's what the basketball great reportedly once told a younger athlete who tried to talk to him after practice: "You can't talk to me. You need more accolades under your belt before you come talk to me."

Caitlyn Jenner: Gryffindor

Her boldness and bravery mean no further explanation is needed.

27 of 28 HBO

John Oliver: Ravenclaw

Oliver's comedy is certainly ballsy enough to qualify for Gryffindor. But consider: One of his earliest comedic personas was called an "oleaginous journalist": a wordier way of saying "oily reporter."

Zendaya: Gryffindor

This fearless actress and singer seems to revel in fighting back against traditional expectations. And that goes for everything from her hair and wardrobe choices to her career moves.
