Not even celebrities are immune to the force of Star Wars.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rainn Wilson both opted to dress in costume to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere Monday night in Los Angeles. The Walk star painted his face and neck green and wore a beanie with pointed green ears to channel his best Yoda, the Jedi master. He wore a beige shirt underneath a white robe to round out his look and even kept the green theme going on his bottom half, where he wore green pants with another famous character printed on them: the Grinch.

Wilson, best known for his role on The Office, dressed up as Obi-Wan Kenobi and brought along his son who also got into the Star Wars spirit. Wilson tweeted a picture with his son and wrote, "Me and Walter are the only ones dressed up at the Premiere!! #ChubbyJedi."

While these men geeked out in costumes, some of the female stars who attended the event also paid homage to the epic franchise. Sofia Vergara, Karrueche Tran and Janelle Monáe all sported Carrie Fisher's famous Princess Leia, oversized "cinnamon buns" in their hair. Newlywed Vergara glowed next to her now-husband, Joe Manganiello, who looked dapper in a blue suit.

Lupita Nyong'o, who co-stars in The Force Awakens, also commemorated her co-star's famous 'do, but with a bit of a unique twist. Instead of two low buns, Nyong'o opted for one large bun surrounded by five smaller ones.

It's safe to say the force has taken over Hollywood.
