While we like to think our favorite celebrity is one in a million, that's usually not the case. Just like regular people, stars have famous Doppelgängers who look so much like them they could be related. As a matter of fact, you have probably mistaken these celebrities for each other yourself without even realizing it. You might have to do a double or triple take after seeing how identical these celebrities are. Ready to have your mind blown? Read on for more.
1. Jada Pinkett Smith And Zoey Saldana
Maybe there was a mix-up at the hospital, or somewhere along that line. We don't know if these two have a common relative, but Jada Pinkett Smith and Zoey Saldana look like they could be sisters. The two women are just seven years apart in age and have many similar facial features.
If we were either of these women, we wouldn't mind being mistaken for the other because they are both absolutely stunning. Saldana and Smith have been seen together at events, and when they stand next to each other, it is like they are twins. We wonder if they realize just how much they look alike.
2. Will Ferrell And Chad Smith
While Will Ferrell has been making us laugh for decades with movies like Step Brothers and Anchorman, his Hollywood doppelgänger Chad Smith has been blessing our ears as the drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Although they are not related, the two embrace their physical similarities.
Ferrell and Smith formed a close friendship because of people comparing them to each other and appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon for a friendly drum-off. Time and time again, they have given their fans joy by hanging out and fulfilling the fantasy that they could be related.
3. Margot Robbie And Jaime Pressly
Time and time again, people have confused Margot Robbie for a few different celebrities in Hollywood, but the most common is Jaime Pressly. After Robbie rose to fame in The Wolf of Wall Street, people noticed that her facial structure and features look like she could be related to Pressly.
Although they are 13 years apart in age, Robbie and Pressly could easily pass as twins with their square jawlines, bright eyes, and blonde hair. The one thing that really sets them apart is their accents, as Robbie is Australian while Pressly is American.
4. Amy Adams And Isla Fisher
If there are two starlets who get compared in looks to each other the most, it's Amy Adams and Isla Fisher. While they come from two different countries, the US and Australia, the red-headed beauties are often mistaken for each other, even by fellow celebrities.
While attending the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, Lady Gaga accidentally thought Fisher was Adams, but she didn't want to correct her. It has happened on many other occasions, and they laugh about it because both highly successful actresses have a good sense of humor, so what's the harm.
5. Chord Overstreet And Austin Butler
Chord Overstreet and Austin Butler might be the two most underrated men in Hollywood, and people don't realize how similar the two look. Overstreet is best known for his role as Sam Evans on Glee, and Butler played James Wilkerson on Switched at Birth.
Although Butler currently has black hair for his role as Elvis in a biographical music drama, he and Overstreet both have strong jaws and that smoldering look in their eyes. Would you believe that they aren't brothers?
6. Henry Cavill And Matt Bomer
Although they starred in completely different film franchises, Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer could easily switch places, and no one would know the difference. Cavill might be known as the man of steel, but no one can deny that Bomer has steel blue eyes that could defeat any supervillain.
Maybe they could add Superman to the next Magic Mike movie, and these two could perform a twin dance number. We know many people who would watch that film, and we would be the first in line for the big premiere.
7. Alicia Silverstone And Kristen Stewart
While we just learned that we have been mispronouncing Alicia Silverstone's name all these years (turns out it's Ali-SEE-yuh), we also just realized how similar she looks to Kristen Stewart. The Clueless star and the Twilight lead might be 13 years apart in age, but they could pass as close sisters in many pictures.
Why haven't people noticed how similar their noses and eye shape are? Although we can't imagine them hanging out, it would be interesting to see them stand next to each other because they share some of the same posing mannerisms.
8. Jessica Chastain And Bryce Dallas Howard
Have your parents ever confused you for someone else? Well, this has happened two Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard. While walking the red carpet, Bryce Dallas Howard's father, filmmaker Ron Howard, thought Jessica Chastain was his daughter because the two women look like twins.
The redheads both have made strides in their careers, but people confuse them for each other all the time. Chastain and Howard noticed how much they looked like each other when they starred in the movie The Help together. They don't even care that people get them confused.
9. Rachel Bilson And Selena Gomez
We never knew some celebrities looked related because they have never been seen with one another. Take Rachel Bilson and Selena Gomez, for example; these two don't run in the same circle in Hollywood and reached their peak popularity at different times.
However, now that you see their pictures side-by-side, it's hard to unsee their similarities. While they have different face shapes, Bilson and Gomez have similar noses and the same eye color, among other things.
10. Dane Cook And Skylar Astin
There is barely an interest between Dain Cook and Skylar Astin, which explains why people often get their names confused. The two got mixed up so often that they decided to get together and take a photo that Astin then posted on social media. In the tweet, they simply said, "We don't see it."
However, Cook is not unhappy about being compared to Astin, considering the musical talents he displayed in Pitch Perfect. We can almost guarantee that Cook would make a joke about them being mistaken for each other in one of his stand-up comedy acts.
11. Chandra Wilson And Alex Newell
Chandra Wilson has impressed us as Dr. Bailey on Grey's Anatomy, which seems to have been on TV forever, while Alex Newell starred as Mo in Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. If they ever needed someone to play a young Miranda Bailey on Grey's, Newell would be the perfect person for the part.
The two have never commented on their similarities, but they are both beautiful in their own ways. We would love to see them do a project together because they are both incredible actors. Although we know Newell would definitely win in any sing-off between them.
12. Chace Crawford And Ian Somerhalder
While Smoldering Ian Somerhalder and the devilishly handsome Chace Crawford were on popular TV shows during the same era, it was hard to keep track of who was on which show. Somerhalder starred in Vampire Diaries, Crawford was on Gossip Girl, and they were both heartthrobs.
Their piercing blue eyes and ruggedly handsome good looks make it easy for people to confuse them. If only Somerhalder and Crawford could meet up and star in something together so that our screens could be blessed.
13. Jeremy Irons And Daniel Day-Lewis
People have often compared Jeremy Irons and Daniel Day-Lewis because they are both talented actors with tremendous accolades. However, most people don't notice how similar these two look until they are placed side-by-side.
Although Daniel Day-Lewis is retired now, it would be interesting to see them bring their talents together for one movie. It would probably win many awards even if people couldn't tell the difference between Irons and Day-Lewis.
14. Katy Perry And Zooey Deschanel
While some celebrities don't know their famous doppelgängers, Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel have talked about and recognized their similarities. In fact, Perry told Deschanel that she used to pretend to be her to get into clubs in her 20s.
The pair did an Instagram live video together, and Perry said, "When I came to L.A., I was pretty much a nobody, and you were just getting so huge at that time ... In that moment, I was so complimented to look like you." Deschanel admitted that she knew that Perry was pretending to be her, and she didn't mind once the two met.
15. Ellen Barkin And Cameron Diaz
If Cameron Diaz wants to know what she will look like in the future, she can turn to Ellen Barkin because they could pass as sisters. With their cropped bobs and strong cheekbones, these two often get compared to each other.
Although there might be an age gap between them, these two have brought joy to all their fans. Barkin is not as popular with the younger fan base, but she has had a highly successful career just like Diaz.
16. Mila Kunis And Sarah Hyland
Maybe it's their big hazel eyes or bold eyebrows that make them look so alike, but Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland definitely share many physical similarities. However, their eyes also help tell them apart because Kunis has one eye that is browner than the other due to her heterochromia.
Another thing they share is their acting style. Hyland starred in Modern Family, and she channeled Kunis' That 70s Show character for her inspiration. They would be perfect to play sisters in a show or movie, and we're sure many people would love to see it.
17. Jeffrey Dean Morgan And Javier Bardem
Although some people speculate that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Javier Bardem are the same person, they are not. Bardem was born in Spain, while Morgan is from the great state of Washington. Besides their birthplace differences, they have also worked on many different projects.
Bardem would have been great in The Walking Dead because he has made a living on his dark characters, but the part was meant for Morgan. It would have been interesting to see him as the zombie version of Morgan, though.
18. Jai Courtney And Phillip Phillips
Remember American Idol winner Phillip Phillips? You might have thought you spotted him in A Good Day to Die Hard, but that was actually his doppelgänger, Jai Courtney. There is an unexpected resemblance between the two, even though they are famous for very different things.
In all fairness, Courtney looks like one of those people who just have a familiar face. He probably looks like many different people, but Phillips is the closest match. We could probably easily find more celebrities that look like him.
19. Zachary Quinto And Eli Roth
Actor Zachary Quinto and director Eli Roth are scarily similar in their looks, and some people on the internet have a theory that they are actually the same person. One thing is for sure, they have a love for thrillers.
Quinto has made a career off of playing serial killers, while Roth became famous for creating them in films and television shows. It's interesting that they not only look alike, but they also have similar career interests.
20. Dana Delany And Mimi Rogers
You might remember Dana Delany from Desperate Housewives, but did you know that she has a celebrity twin? Mimi Rogers is known for her role in Gung Ho, and if she had red hair, she could pass as Delany's older sister.
Surprisingly, besides their physical appearances, they also have similar voices. Although they haven't worked together, we can imagine that they would be a good pairing in a film.
21. Drea De Matteo And Portia De Rossi
We think we finally found Portia De Rossi's long-lost twin. Drea De Matteo from Desperate Housewives is not only just one year apart in age from Rossi, but they also have similar last names. We wonder if Ellen DeGeneres noticed their similarities.
Portia spent her career working in comedy roles while Drea was on one of the best dramas to hit the small screen, aka The Sopranos. Although Portia cut her hair into a cropped look, their facial features are similar enough for them to pass as siblings.
22. Jordana Brewster And Demi Moore
Actress and model Jordana Brewster looks like an exact copy of Demi Moore, don't you agree? With her long dark hair, fair skin, and slender figure, she could have passed for Moore's body double for sure.
While some people would say that Moore looks more like Courteney Cox, we think Brewster can pass as her sister as well. The Fast and Furious star has a lot to brag about with her successful career, and much like Moore, she's been in the public eye for more than two decades.
23. Emmanuelle Chriqui And JWoww
If you were a fan of trashy reality TV during the early 2010s, you would remember Jenni "JWoww" Farley from Jersey Shore. While she has had some work done over the years, she still bears an eerie resemblance to Entourage's Emmanuelle Chriqui.
Their many physical similarities are pretty much all they have in common because we doubt Chriqui would be caught dead walking down the boardwalk in Seaside, New Jersey, wearing trucker hats and Ed Hardy bedazzled shirts. But who's to say.
24. Benicio Del Toro And Brad Pitt
Is it just us, or does Benicio Del Toro look like the tired version of Brad Pitt? The Puerto Rican actor and producer has won many awards for his movies like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. However, Brad Pitt might not be that far behind with his six children that probably keep him up most nights.
Their rugged beards and strong facial structures make them look related, which might help if they ever wanted to audition as brothers in a movie. On the other hand, we wonder if Pitt and Del Toro have ever crossed paths and thought they were looking in a mirror.
25. Joseph Gordon-Levitt And Heath Ledger
When they were younger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger co-starred in 10 Things I Hate About You, and ever since then, we thought Levitt could pass as the late Heath Ledger's twin. They also played in the same Batman universe when Ledger was the Joker, and Levitt played Robin.
While there are many similarities in their careers, unfortunately, we will never know what it would be like if they starred in a movie as adults because of Ledger's passing. On the anniversary of 10 Things I Hate About You, however, Levitt fondly remembered his late co-star.
26. Leighton Meester And Minka Kelly
Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly not only look like sisters, but they also became good friends during their teen years. While they were filming separate commercials for Clearasil in 2003, they met on set and became famous TV stars and pals.
Because of their similar looks, they decided to collaborate on the psychological thriller, The Roommate. It's hard for people to tell them apart, which is why they made the perfect duo in the film. Although their careers have gone in separate directions now, they are still good friends.
27. Victoria Justice And Nina Dobrev
Don't you love it when your favorite celebrities hang out? It's even better when the two celebrities could pass as sisters. Although they could pass as twins, Nina Dobrev and Victoria Justice are not actually related.
When The Vampire Diaries first premiered on TV, people thought Dobrev's character was played by Victoria Justice because she was already famous for her role on Zoey 101. However, they have appeared at the same award show and cleared up rumors that they are twins or the same person.
28. Fabio And Jon Hamm
One thing you will never be able to unsee is the resemblance between Jon Hamm and Fabio. Hamm is basically Fabio without the long hair, and there is even a whole Reddit thread dedicated to their similar looks. Some people even believe that they were separated at birth.
Although some people think it's wrong to put Don Draper from Mad Men in the same category as Fabio, the man who is mainly famous for appearing on the cover of sappy romance novels, it's hard to deny they look somewhat alike.
29. Logan Marshall-Green And Tom Hardy
Both born in the mid-'70s, Logan Marshall-Green and Tom Hardy often have their names interchanged when people talk about their roles in various movies. Furthermore, we have never seen them in the same room simultaneously, so who is to say that they aren't the same person?
They look even more alike when Hardy decides to leave a little stubble instead of growing a full beard because it reveals their similar bone structure. If you squint, you might have a harder time telling who is Hardy and who is Marshall-Green.
30. Millie Bobby Brown And Natalie Portman
Although there is a large age gap between Millie Bobby Brown and Natalie Portman, many people think that the young star could pass as the young version of the V for Vendetta actress. When Portman hosted Saturday Night Live she even did a spoof playing Brown's character Eleven from Stranger Things.
Some people thought they were related, like Emma Roberts and Julia Roberts, but there is no relation at all. When you put them side-by-side, you can see how they would look like twins if they were the same age.
31. Ed Sheeran And Rupert Grint
While some people say it's their red hair that makes them similar, Rupert Grint from Harry Potter and singer Ed Sheeran have much more in common. The two Englishmen have that sly smirk and their British accents to charm the ladies even though they are both in committed relationships with children.
Grint and Sheeran play into the joke that they are brothers and have dressed up in the same clothing in the past. People have trouble telling them apart all the time, and those who have seen them in public thought Sheeran was the one who starred in Harry Potter.
32. Bella Hadid And Jennifer Lawrence
Although Bella Hadid has an actual famous sister, she looks more like Jennifer Lawrence than Gigi Hadid. The brunette model and the blonde actress have similar check bones and eye shapes, which makes people think they are related in some way.
We bet Lawrence would fit right in with the Hadid siblings, and it would be interesting to see her in one of their family photos. Since Gigi is currently focusing on being a mother, Lawrence can step in as the older sister.
33. Julie Bowen And Elizabeth Banks
Julie Bowen starred on Modern Family, and Elizabeth Banks had a guest role on the show, but not enough people are talking about how much they look like twins. People were hoping the show would say that Banks's character was Claire's long-lost sister.
With their similar smiles and blonde hair, Banks and Bowen might act in different TV shows, but they could switch places and fool a director. If only there were an extra season of Modern Family for them to share the screen once again.
34. Mick Jagger And Harry Styles
If you have seen pictures of Mick Jagger when he was younger, you might have confused him for present-day Harry Styles. Although they are 51 years apart, they share similar features like their large mouths and brown hair, and Styles does a great Mick Jagger impression.
Styles often takes inspiration from Mick Jagger's style in the '70s. There have been many times when he copied outfits that Jagger wore, and they look even more alike in those situations. We would love to see them bring their talent together and make one insane hit song.
35. Ralph Fiennes And Liam Neeson
It's not surprising that Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson get confused for each other, considering they have acted alongside each other in films like Schindler's List and The Wrath of the Titans. However, Neeson usually plays the hero while Fiennes is the villain.
Although Fiennes was completely transformed for his role as Voldemort in Harry Potter, people still sometimes say that Neeson was the one who played this iconic role. It must be their piercing blue-grey eyes that confuse people.
36. Gerard Butler And Clive Owen
Maybe we are the only ones who have confused the 300 star for the Children of Men actor, but you must admit that they do bear an uncanny resemblance. Their smirks and bright eyes remind us of how similar Gerard Butler and Clive Owen look alike.
However, Butler is known for playing in romantic comedies like Bounty Hunter and P.S. I Love You, while Owen is known for his more serious roles in King Arthur and Inside Man.
37. Susan Sarandon And Sigourney Weaver
When Susan Sarandon was at the Glamour Women of the Year awards in 2016, she said she gets confused for Sigourney Weaver all the time. She also joked that she takes credit for the movie Alien, while Weaver occasionally signs autographs as Sarandon.
Sarandon and Weaver are both fans of each other, and they don't care that people get them confused. With their individual accolades in the acting world, they both have a lot to be proud of.
38. Chelsea Handler And Elizabeth Banks
Surprisingly, Elizabeth Banks admitted that she pretends to be Chelsea Handler when people confuse her for the comedian. Banks said that someone came up to her and started talking about Handler's book, so she just went with it instead of disappointing them.
We have to admit that Handler and Banks look more like sisters than anyone else on this list. When Banks appeared on Handler's talk show Chelsea Lately, people had trouble figuring out who was the host and who was the guest.
39. Emily Kinney And Evanna Lynch
If you are a fan of The Walking Dead or Harry Potter, you might have confused Emily Kinney and Evanna Lynch for each other. While Kinney played Beth Greene in the zombie series, Lynch portrayed the magical Luna Lovegood. However, people seem to think these two are twins.
We can only imagine what it would be like if Luna were in the middle of a zombie apocalypse or Beth Greene stumbled upon the wizarding world. That would be an interesting franchise crossover that we would secretly love to see.
40. Ryan Seacrest And Joel McHale
Ryan Seacrest is best known for hosting American Idol, while comedian Joel McHale is known for shows like Community. Although they have different reasons for their fame, they do share an unusual resemblance to one another.
Once, McHale even took over Seacrest's Twitter for a day just to confuse people even further. Although their faces look alike, McHale is significantly taller than Seacrest, who is only 5'8" compared to the 6'3" actor.
