Most of us have asked, “Isn’t that… from…?” when watching a movie or television show. We are occasionally correct, often confuse actors for someone else. There are plenty of celebrities who look strikingly similar to other celebrities. Unless you are a Hollywood superfan, it can be difficult to tell some of these stars apart.
Here is a list of some of the most convincingly comparable celebrity look-alikes we have ever seen. Admit it, you thought a few of these were the same person. Quite a few of them caught the attention of casting directors as well.
An Even Fuller House
The world was introduced to Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure’s Daughter Natasha when she appeared on The Voice. Her vocal talents stole the attention from judge Adam Levine. Viewers began to notice her similarities with Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson, who was honored with an Academy Award and Golden Globe for her role in Room.
They have an interesting television connection as well. Like Natasha’s real-life mom, Larson played the television daughter of Bob Sagat. He starred in both Full House and the WB’s Raising Dad. Since hair styles changed so drastically over the twenty years between shows, it’s not likely he got them confused.
Connick Jr. And His Long Lost Property Brothers
The Property Brothers twins, Drew and Jonathan Scott, couldn’t help but notice their resemblance to the smooth singer Harry Connick Jr. Drew says, “It’s funny, we’re twins, but no one in all my life has ever said I look like [Jonathan].” Jonathan admits he receives “more messages [from people] online who say they swear we were split at birth.”
Harry invited the twins to his family reunion Christmas special where they took a “family” photo and agreed. “I can really see it now,” he said before tweeting, “I don’t mention it often, but I have 2 brothers. we had an emotional holiday reunion.”
Bayside Meets Baywatch
Tiffani Thiessen caused the jaws of many 1990s teens to drop as the gorgeous cheerleader on Saved By The Bell. Alexandra Daddario caused all of our jaws to drop when she took part in the 2017 comedy reboot of the 1990s hit Baywatch. Their shining dark brown hair really makes the hypnotizing blue eyes stand out.
Both bombshells have appeared on the USA television series White Collar. Thiessen was cast as the main character Elizabeth Burke while Daddario appeared as a recurring character. Although they don’t look like identical twins, the resemblance is still something that shouldn’t be ignored.
Actress, Model, Or Both?
There aren’t many people who can take attention away from Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence. She has become one of Hollywood’s most elite stars. Bella Hadid burst onto the fashion scene in 2014. She garnered more attention after winning Model.com’s 2016 Model of the Year award. When asked if she had ever been confused for Lawrence, Hadid told Fashionista, “Multiple times a day. Probably today it’s already happened like five times.”
Their similarly desirable eyes and perfect noses are a few traits they share. Their talents within their respective industries are just the tip of the iceberg.
Vacation co-stars, former SNL cast member Jason Sudeikis and Daily Show correspondent Ed Helms get confused for each other all of the time. Sudeikis says he doesn’t get offended of his could-be twin because, “I’m in a good place in the sense that mine is a really nice, funny, smart guy.”
At the White House Correspondents dinner, someone in the press approached Sudeikis for a photo. The man was bewildered when he told him his name was Jason. “Did you think I was Ed Helms from The Hangover?” he asked.
“Yes, but it’s OK,” she responded. “You look enough like him.”
Natalie & Knightley
Keira Knightly and Natalie Portman get this all of the time. Knightly admits, “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!’ And I’ll sign and take a picture as Natalie.”
How on Earth have these two never been in films together as sisters? In fact, they practically have been. Casting directors for Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace noticed their similarity in 1997. A 12-year-old Keira Knightly was chosen to play the handmaiden and decoy to Portman’s Queen Amidala.
Dude, Where’s My Doppelgänger?
Basically, the only difference between Ashton Kutcher and Jared Haibon is their marital status. Haibon is known for his part on Bachelor in Paradise. Kutcher has been hitched through most of his career. Bachelor contestant Ashley Iaconetti first noticed their oddly similar features. She said Haibon was a cross between Kutcher and Joe Jonas.
Kutcher’s wife Mila Kunis wanted him to share a side-by-side photo. “I’m trying to figure out why Mila is making me take this picture” he posted on Twitter.” And who is this guy?” Prominent cheekbones will get you pretty far in the entertainment industry.
Eva Mendes has always been in the hearts of her adoring fans. The Latina beauty steals the screen with every scene. She began her career as a model and appeared in music videos for Aerosmith and Will Smith. Her acting career took off after she co-starred with Denzel Washington in Training Day.
Ashley Graham’s notoriety arrived when she became the first size-16 model to appear on the coveted Swimsuit Edition in 2017. “I thought Sports Illustrated was taking a risk by putting a girl my size in the pages,” Graham told People Magazine. “They aren’t just breaking barriers; they are the standard now. This is beyond epic.”
High School Hall Versus Capitol Hill
Politicians are a lot like actors. They both lie for a living. There is an overwhelming difference between singing and dancing through high school halls and signing legislation on Capitol Hill. Otherwise, former Glee star Matthew Morrison and Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan look like they could be cousins.
Their perfect hair, with an accompanying widow’s peak, is just the beginning. Some say their smile, nose, and protruding ears are enough to compare the two. We’re willing to bet Morrison has a little more fun with his job. He likely receives a lot less scrutiny too.
Catwoman Meets Clooney
Not only is Amal Clooney an accomplished human rights lawyer specializing in international law, but she is quite stunning. Pretty much as stunning as Anne Hathaway. Many people confuse Clooney for The Princess Diaries and The Dark Knight Rises star. Their lips and beautiful brown eyes really make the connection.
When asked by EXTRA how she feels about being compared to Clooney, Hathaway responded, “I hope that I become half the woman that she is – she’s so accomplished, and it’s so thrilling to look at someone and be like, ‘Oh, you really are making the world a better place.'”
Alicia Silverstone was introduced to the world when she played Fred Savage’s “dream girl” on an episode of The Wonder Years. The same year as her breakout performance in The Crush in 1993, we saw Alicia in the music videos for Aerosmith’s “Cryin’,” “Crazy,” and “Amazing.”
We got to know Maggie Lawson a little later in the decade. She is probably best known for her role as Juliet O’Hara on Psych. Getting her confused with the Clueless star is quite common. In fact, one of the most popular questions on Quora is “Who does Alicia Silverstone play on Psych?”
Justice League Connection Between Blake And Benoist
Actresses Blake Lively and Melissa Benoist are two of the loveliest blonde beauties to have owned the small screen. Benoist is best known for her part on the hit television series Glee while Lively received critical acclaim as the main character in the teen hit Gossip Girl.
It’s not enough to look the same. Melissa Benoist has continued her success becoming the new Supergirl. Lively is happily married to Ryan Reynolds, the hilarious star of Superman’s Justice League teammate The Green Lantern.
As if that wasn’t enough, Benoist was once married to her co-star on Glee, Blake Jenner.
More Than Will Ferrell In Common
When it comes to inherently funny females, it’s easy to confuse Ana Gastayer with Kathryn Hahn. Gastayer had a standout role as a cast member of Saturday Night Live for years. You might remember her as the calm-spoken co-host of NPR’s Delicious Dish skit promoting “Schweddy Balls.”
Hahn hilariously portrays not-so-sane characters alongside Will Ferrell in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Step Brothers. Their hair, nose, eyes, and unique smiles make it difficult to distinguish between the two.
In a coincidental twist of fate, both women received their education from Northwestern University.
Soules And Speedman Could Be Siblings
Scott Speedman is widely known for his role on Felicity, as well as the lycan/vampire cross-breed from the Underworld saga. Chris Soules earned his fame by handing out roses to eligible bachelorettes on The Bachelor. Even though their roles are vastly different, the two handsome hunks could be confused for brothers. Speedman and Soules are two celebrities who could have fallen from the same family tree.
They both have perfectly moussed hair, a slightly downward pointing nose, identical lips, and knee-weakening jawline. We’re pretty sure most women (and some men) would be happy to have one chance with either of them.
We’re not saying Swedish DJ Avicii looks like a girl. Nor are we saying Taylor Swift has manly features. The two of them just look like they were separated at birth. Even Taylor Swift agrees with the comparison. As soon as TayTay noticed a picture of Avicii she posted a photo on Instagram and played along.
The comment read: “Just saw this, then immediately called my parents and asked them point blank if they kidnapped me from Avicii’s family in Sweden when I was a baby. Of course, they denied it. They would.” along with the hashtags #heyyyyybrother and #WHOAMIACTUALLY.
Leighton Meester is another Gossip Girl who has a celebrity look-a-like. Meester has often been compared to the Friday Night Lights beautyMinka Kelly. Whether it is their chestnut-colored hair or stunning eyes, it was only a matter of time before someone put them on a project together.
In 2011, both girls were hired for the thriller The Roommate. The story of a college girl (Kelly) who meets a gradually obsessive roommate (Meester). Even though critics denied the film of any positive review, fans begged to differ. Kelly and Meester were both nominated for MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards.
Nina And Victoria Do Each Other Justice
Bulgarian-Canadian actress Nina Dobrev’s claim to fame was as Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries. Victoria Justice has been in the acting game for about the same amount of time. It’s a common misconception the two brunette beauties are the same person. You’d have to be a hardcore fan of either woman to really tell the differences.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Justice says people always think she is Dobrev. “It’s been happening forever!” she said. “I think it’s flattering. She’s so pretty, so it’s very nice to be able to say that!”
Red Headed Homogeny
Whether it’s the stunning and flashy red hair or the ability to act in dramatic or comedy roles, there’s no mistaking Amy Adams and Isla Fisher gets mistaken for each other on a regular basis. The two actresses are friends and hang out with one another on occasion. They try to see the differences. It’s hard for people to objectively compare themselves to someone else.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Adams said she gets confused for Fisher “all the time, still. When I’m with Isla, we both look at one another and … I get it but I don’t get it.”
Guardians Of The Galaxy Far Far Away
If you didn’t hear Thandie Newton and Zoe Saldana’s distinctly different accents, it would be easy to confuse the two. Newton has proven herself as a force to be reckoned with as the madam Maeve Millay on HBO’s Westworld. She will also appear in the new Star Wars standalone Han Solo movie.
Saldana has become world-renowned for her role as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s about time you learn to recognize who is who.
Before she became a Marvel superhero, Saldana said on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, “I’ll be walking down the street and I’ll have people go, ‘Hey Thandie Newton!'”
Negan Versus Anton
Both Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Javier Bardem are known for their overpowering performances. Morgan will now forever be known as Negan, the no-holds-barred verbose antagonist in the hit apocalyptic thriller The Walking Dead. Bardem showed his acting dominance as the silent assassin Anton Chigurh in the Coen brothers classic No Country For Old Men.
Both men have the scruffy manliness about them which makes them perfect for their respective roles. Even though Bardem has a thick Spanish accent, both men are talented enough to fake it. It would be easy to mix the two if either man wasn’t an Oscar or Golden Globe-caliber performer.
