The life of the rich and famous often brings out some weird results. We’ve seen children and parents who look alike, but Hollywood is full of celebrities who would pass as each other if they weren’t right next to each other in a photograph.
Amazingly, these duos aren’t related – or so they say – which makes their resemblance all the more uncanny. Check out our list of celebrity doppelgangers and see for yourself! You won’t be able to unsee these celebrity faces!
Rob Lowe and Ian Somerhalder
These two studs both have bright blue eyes and fresh dark hair, making for some striking similarities. The two have a large age gap – 15 years! – but they both keep looking young so it’s hard to tell.
These two have appeared in some of the best television shows of all time, including The West Wing and LOST. Who knows, they might even partner up for their own show one day! We bet a few female fans would tune in.
Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz
Hayek has appeared in films like Frieda and Puss In Boots, whereas Cruz is seen Volva and Woody Allen’s Vicky Christina Barcelona. Can you tell these Latin lovelies apart?
Despite the seven-year gap between these beauties, it’s pretty easy to get them mixed up! With their dark complexions and Spanish accents, many fans can’t even tell them apart.
Stephen Colbert and Bob Saget
This chatshow host has a striking resemblance to everyday funnyman Bob Saget. The Late Show host and Fuller House star share a similar bespectacled look – which is to say they’re both white men with glasses.
But still, this unique look suits them well and they both have different styles of comedy. Whereas Saget goes for the more crude and vulgar humor, Colbert goes for the very obvious and tiresome political commentary. Which funnyman do you prefer?
Julie Bowen and Elizabeth Banks
These blonde beauties appeared alongside each other in Modern Family, dispelling any rumors that they were, in fact, the same person! Both have played caring mothers on television who have captured hearts and minds for 10 years.
They have different eye colors which help us true fans tell them apart, but the rest can keep Hollywood guessing! Currently, Bowen is still on our TVs with Modern Family and its impressive 10th season. Do you watch it?
Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland
Another Modern Family star has a doppelganger in the form of Family Guy voice actor Mila Kunis. Their large and round brown eyes captivate audiences around the world. Today, Hyland is still wowing fans with her performance in the popular sitcom, and Kunis has made an impressive move into movies.
Mila Kunis starred opposite Ashton Kutcher on That 70s Show from 1998 to 2006, but they didn’t begin dating until 2012 and weren’t married until 2015.
Nick Offerman and Zach Galifianakis
These two funnymen are best known for their characters in Parks and Recreation and The Hangover series. Even though their facial hair has changed over the years, we can’t help but notice the similarities between these two when their both have beards.
Their particular humor stems from a deadpan performance where they rarely break a smile. Have you seen these two comedians in action?
Portia De Rossi and Drea De Matteo
These two may be from different continents – America and Australia – but it doesn’t mean they’re not secretly related! We can’t get over the fact these two share the same facial structure and wavey blonde hair.
De Rossi appears on Arrested Development and De Matteo is best known for her work on Desperate Housewives, Joey, and Sons of Anarchy. Today, De Matteo keeps a low profile and De Rossi can be seen in the new series of Arrested Development.
Mick Jagger and Harry Styles
Even though these stars have a 50-year age gap between them, their resemblance is undeniable. Ever since Harry Styles became a worldwide star in 2010, fans have been drawing comparisons between him and the Rolling Stones singer.
The British musicians share the same facial structures. We can only hope that Styles will play Jagger in a Hollywood biopic that is long overdue. What do you think about the pair? Would you like to see a film about Mick Jagger staring Harry Styles?
Scarlett Johansson and Amber Heard
These two both play superheroes, albeit in different cinematic universes. Johannson has portrayed Black Widow in Marvel’s MCU since 2010, and Amber Heard has recently found success with her role in DC’s Aquaman.
These two share a similar smile with their lips making the same shape. Their eyes are also very similar, causing some confusion! They also seem to style their hair in the same style, meaning even cinema-goers would have trouble telling them apart if it wasn’t for makeup!
Taylor Swift and Avicii
Despite being different sexes, the similarities between the country singer and late DJ can’t be ignored. They have the same eyes and mousy nose, making their faces incredible close in appearance.
Both stars were born in 1989 and had an amazing ability to engage crowds with their impressive performances. Sadly, the world said goodbye to Avicii, born Tim Bergling, in April 2018 and he has left a hole in the music industry that won’t be easily replaced.
Millie Bobby Brown and Natalie Portman
Despite the age gap between these stars, fans can’t help notice the similarities between Millie Bobby Brown and Natalie Portman. The Stranger Things star is only 14 years old but already shares features with the more vintage 37-year-old Portman.
The slim noses and rosy cheeks make for confusing red carpet appearances. Bobby Brown is currently on one of the biggest shows in the world and has become the youngest person to be appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Zach Braff and Dax Shepard
These two funny men were both born in 1975 and could be identical twins! They both share the same blue eyes and cheek structure, as well as the brown hair that curls the same way!
They grew up in New Jersey and Michigan respectively, but the two have actually become close friends. We bet they turn some heads when they’re walking down the street together! We can’t wait for the film when they play evil twins.
John Mayer and Antoni Porowski
This Grammy winner and Queer Eye star are both handsome, tall, and enjoy the same hobbies such as cooking. In fact, have you ever seen them in the same place? These two heartthrobs steal hearts across our screens and radios as they perform and make appearances.
Their slick brown hair and defined jawlines certainly leave an impression on fans everywhere. We can look forward to a new series of Queer Eye and album from Mayer soon – perhaps a collaboration is in order?
Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley
Portman appears on the list once again, this time sharing a look with Love, Actually star Keira Knightly. Apparently, the stars are all too aware of their striking looks! In 2014, Knightley told Graham Norton that she is often bombarded by fans thinking she is Portman.
She said: “I feel quite sorry for her because she must get chased a lot because it’s happened like five times where someone’s been like, ‘Natalie! Natalie! Natalie!'”
Ed Sheeran and Prince Harry
There’s something about British redheads that gets the girls turning their heads! Given the fact they both have scruffy hair, beards, and English accents, we hope Meghan can tell them apart! Margot Robbie famously spent an entire night with the Prince thinking it was the singer!
Prince Harry’s cousins, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, have both commented on the resemblance when Ed Sheeran performed at a wedding in 2012. What do you think about the pair?
Tiffani Thiessen & Alexandra Daddario
These two are actually 12 years apart, despite looking so similar. Whereas they would have looked like mother and daughter a few years ago, now they could be sisters. The two actresses share the same heritage of English and German roots which might explain their resemblance.
The dark hair and blue eyes make it almost impossible to tell them apart. We look forward to them sharing the screen again after their performance in White Collar together.
Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly
These two brunettes both color their hair with highlights and have big round puppy-like eyes to match. The Gossip Girl and Just Go With It stars share a striking resemblance even though they have slightly different skin tones.
The two both promoted the film, The Roommate, and confused journalists in the press room! Today, Leighton Meester is married to The OC star Adam Brody – let’s hope he doesn’t confuse his own wife with Minka Kelly!
Elizabeth Banks and Chelsea Handler
Banks appears on our list once again as sharing her blonde locks with late-night host Chelsea Handler. The two of them have the wavy blonde hair and even the deep blue eyes to match.
Whereas Banks has appeared in classics such as The Hunger Games, Scrubs, 30 Rock, and more, you will most likely find Chelsea Handler screaming at through about political affairs. Which one of these ladies do you think looks better?
Chad Smith and Will Ferrell
Both Smith and Ferrell have made fun of the fact they look so similar. They have the same eyes, nose, and even cheesy grin! They appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon – making for quite the confusing moment.
Thankfully, the two have quite different careers: one is an actor and the other is in Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Only fans of both will get them confused since they don’t often cross paths with each other.
Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood
These two child stars have often been the discussion of each other’s lives! They have both gone on record to say that they both get confused for the other one.
Radcliffe even has fun with it: sometimes he even signs autographs of Elijah Wood’s photo. These Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter actors continue to laugh about their striking resemblance – to the confusion of fans everywhere.
Gus Kenworthy and Richard Madden
Golden Globe winner Richard Madden is known for his role as Rob Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones and recently appeared in the breakout BBC hit The Bodyguard. Amazingly, he looks almost identical to Olympic freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy.
The two are Scottish and American and don’t claim to be related but can you blame us for being skeptical? Their blue eyes and chiseled jawlines certainly leave an impression. If it wasn’t for the tattoos we would be in trouble here!
Eli Roth and Zachary Quinto
These two are both in the movie industry making it tricky to tell them apart on screen! Quinto starred in classics such as Heroes and Star Trek, whereas Roth works mainly behind the screen, although he appeared in Inglorious Basterds.
Their signature thick eyebrows and cheeky smile capture hearts across the world! Quinto is expected to reprise his role in a new Star Trek film soon. Have you ever seen these two together?
Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard
These two Hollywood redheads share more than just hair color. The two actresses share a striking resemblance in eye color and shape, nose shapes, and smiles – they’re practically the same person!
Bryce Dallas Howard sometimes goes blonde, as seen in Spider-Man 3 but the rest of the time it can be hard to tell them apart. A recent example of this was when they shared the screen in The Help, causing confusion among cinemagoers.
Demi Moore and Courteney Cox
These two middle-aged beauties have become more similar in recent years. Even though they have a different eye color, the flowing hair and white teeth are undeniably similar to each other.
Moore and Cox are also both similar in age, so it helps when comparing them – but doesn’t help when telling them apart! Of course, Cox rose to fame as Monica from Friends and Moore starred in Ghost alongside Patrick Swayze.
Ed Sheeran and Rupert Grint
Another entry for Ed Sheeran – we can’t help it that he has one of those faces! This time, we can’t help but notice the resemblance between the singer and the Harry Potter star Rupert Grint.
The two are redheads and British, which must confuse American audiences whenever they see the two stars! Their hair is a little different from each other, but the color and their bright blue eyes make up for the slight differences between them.
Jason Sudeikis and Ed Helms
These Hollywood actors both play the funloving boyish charmer, and are often confused for each other! They both have brown hair and similar jawlines – not to mention the same smile.
On Conan, Sudeikis revealed that he’s always mistaken for his Vacation costar: “Ed Helms and I, I think, get confused quite a bit, the two of us,” he said. Both of these actors rose to fame at different times, but it doesn’t stop fans from getting tricked!
Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly
These actresses both stared in their own shows and films, such as DC’s Suicide Squad and My Name Is Earl. They have never shared the same screen but it’s hard to ignore the similarities between Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly.
Their blonde hair and blue eyes are a striking quality that makes them a stand out look on most red carpets. Margot Robbie is next appearing in the upcoming superhero film Birds of Prey film where she reprises her role as Harley Quinn.
Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer
Speaking of the DC heroes, it looks as though Superman himself has a doppelganger that would confuse Lex Luthor! Henry Cavill shares a striking similarity with Matt Bomer, even though one is American and one is British.
Their piercing blue eyes and strong jawlines make for an impressive pair of doppelgangers. Cavill has just retired from the role of Superman, opening rumors about becoming James Bond – could you see him in the role? We can!
Blake Lively and Melissa Benoist
Both of these actresses got their big breaks on TV shows, and fans have often wondered if they are actually twins! Lively appeared on Gossip Girl whereas Benoist had her breakout performance on Glee before heading the popular Supergirl TV show.
They both have that charming girlish charm with a certain sweetness. Despite the age gap, we could think of these two as twins!
Kim Kardashian and Maya Rivera
Another Glee star who has a doppelganger, we couldn’t help but notice Rivera’s similarity to Kim Kardashian. These two got their big breaks in VERY different ways, but now appear to share more in common than their early years.
Kardashian is one of the biggest reality stars in the world and now works with The White House trying to work on prison reform. Do you keep up with these two and see what they’re doing these days?
Paul Ryan and Matthew Morrison
And Morrison makes three! This is our third Glee doppelganger on the list, with the high school singing teacher sharing an uncanny resemblance to former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Ryan was on the 2012 ticket for Vice President alongside Mitt Romney – but both lost out to Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
Morrison appeared on Glee for all of its six seasons and is a respected Broadway performer. These two probably won’t be confused with each other at work!
Alicia Silverstone and Kristen Stewart
Their breakout roles couldn’t be more different but that doesn’t stop these stars from sharing some shocking similarities. The Clueless and Twilight stars have very contrasting fans due to the difference in their work so it’s not surprising many people wouldn’t notice how alike they are.
There is a 14 year age gap between the two – so Kirsten Stewart has a good idea of how she might look in a few years! Do you see the resemblance?
Amy Adams and Isla Fisher
They don’t share the same eye color but that’s pretty much the only difference between these two Hollywood stars. Their iconic auburn hair is one of the things that links Amy Adams and Isla Fisher – just look at their eyebrows and bone structure!
Isla Fisher has even admitted to pretending to be Adams when she met Lady Gaga, who wasn’t any the wiser! Amy Adams currently portrays Lois Lane in the DCEU, although that might be changing in the future.
Bella Hadid and Jennifer Lawrence
When these two walk down the red carpet together, it would be completely understandable if you confused them. Particularly when Jennifer Lawrence is a brunette, it’s hard to tell them apart. Their pursed lips and button noses are almost identical, but they do in fact have different color eyes.
J-Law and Bella Hadid have green and blue eyes respectively, so true fans will be able to spot the difference! Both these girls have made quite the impression in Hollywood.
Thandie Newton and Zoe Saldana
These Westworld and Guardians of the Galaxy stars are almost identical when sitting next to each other. Funnily enough, when she isn’t green playing Gamora in the Marvel franchise, Saldana is blue for the Avatar films.
Perhaps this is why it took us so long to notice the similarities between these two. Newton was born in London, with English and Zimbabwean roots, and Saldana is from the US with Dominican and Puerto Rican origins.
Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel
These two stars have the same dark brunette locks and large blue eyes which have left an impression on millions of people. The American Idol judge and New Girl star amaze fans with their similarities, down to the same button nose.
We would love to see them together appear as sisters – or maybe enemies – in a TV sitcom. Rumors have started that Perry is considering a move into acting, although she will have to grow out her newly-shaved head.
