You know what they say – everyone has a twin that looks just like them. While it’s rare for everyday folks like us to find our doubles, in Hollywood, celebrity lookalikes are not hard to come by. And it’s not because they have the same plastic surgeon in common.
They genuinely look alike. So much so, that you almost think these celebrities are related. But they’re totally not. And that’s what makes their striking resemblance so bizarre.
So, without further ado, we present to you 20 pairs of celebrities that look alike and could pass for twins. Side note: prepare to be mind-blown!
1. Emma Stone and Lindsay Lohan
Emma Stone and Lindsay Lohan truly are the mirror image of each other. It’s not just their ginger locks they have in common. Even as blondes, these actresses are absolute lookalikes.
From their identical eyes to their noses and lips, Emma and Lindsay are basically twins. Even Lindsay seems to agree! In 2017, the star tweeted Emma asking if she wanted to film Mean Girls 2 together (even though that terrible sequel already exists).
2. Tinashe and Jade Thirlwall
We’re convinced that Jade Thirlwall and Tinashe are the same person. The Little Mix singer and 2 On star look so much alike, it’s difficult distinguishing between the two.
They’re so similar, we can’t look at Jade without seeing Tinashe. Could it be that Jade has a secret solo career she’s told no one about? One time, she even sang along to Tinashe’s song and gave her a shout on Twitter by calling her “Sis”. What more proof do we need, ladies and gents?
3. Paul Wesley and Justin Bieber
Despite the 12-year age gap, it’s easy to believe that Paul Wesley and Justin Bieber must have been separated at birth. With similar eyebrows, eyes and noses, these two really are celebrity doppelgangers (Vampire Diaries fans – see what we did there?).
The Stefan Salvatore actor once joked that he was Bieber’s dad – and it’s totally believable. After E! posted a funny side-by-side photo of Paul and Bieber where they look alike, Paul wrote in the comments, “He’s my son.” #KnewIt
4. Jennifer Lawrence and Lisa Vicari
Not many would agree on this one, but we can’t help but see two lookalikes when Jennifer Lawrence and Dark’s Lisa Vicari are side by side. Whether it’s the shape of the eyes or cute lips, there’s just something about these actresses that is strikingly similar.
If they aren’t the same person, then Jennifer and Lisa could totally pass for twins. Who knows? Maybe they are sisters who were separated at birth – and were both destined to hit Hollywood…
5. Kendall Jenner and Anya Taylor-Joy
We don’t know if you see it too, but Anya Taylor-Joy is literally Kendall Jenner’s clone. Put dark hair on The Queen’s Gambit actress and we guarantee it will be a mirror image of the the Kardashian-Jenner model.
Whether it’s their rounded hazel eyes or their petite face shape, these two celebs must be sisters in an alternate universe!
6. Mark Ruffalo and Noah Centineo
These two actors may look like polar opposites considering their age difference, but look closely (especially at a younger Mark Ruffalo) and you’ll notice that they’re actually very similar.
Noah Centineo, the prince of modern romance movies, looks ever so similar to Hulk actor, Mark Ruffalo, from his face expressions to even his voice! In fact, Mark joked about the comparisons on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: “Wow. That’s amazing. He’s way better looking than I was…He might be able to play my dad one day.”
7. Margot Robbie and Emma Mackey
Emma Mackey’s mom clearly said “copy, paste” when she was born, because she is the doppelganger of actress Margot Robbie! These celebrity doppelgangers are so similar, it kinda freaks us out.
Unlike other celebs on this list, however, the Sex Education star doesn’t like being compared to Margot. “I genuinely just don’t see it at all,” she said. “Like, it’s lovely to be compared to Margot Robbie, but mostly I’d rather people focus on the jobs that we’re both doing rather than what we look like.”
8. Tobey Maguire and Elijah Wood
These blue-eyed actors are a reflection of each other in many ways from their wee lips to their pointy chins. Tobey Maguire and Elijah Wood are both renowned actors in their own right, but you have to admit it’s easy to confuse the two when you see them in their major blockbusters.
The Spider-Man actor and Lord of the Rings frontman are so alike, that Elijah admits to being confused for Tobey by a fan: “I’ve been mistaken for Tobey Maguire”, he revealed on Chatty Man. Funnily enough, it was such an awkward run-in that he never corrected the fan by telling her who he really was.
9. Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel
This identical celebrity pair is pretty much common knowledge in Hollywood – everyone agrees that they’re practically one and the same. Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel have such an eerie resemblance from their distinct blue eyes down to their gorgeous poses.
In fact, both these stars agree that they might be long-lost sisters, as Katy admitted to posing as the actress to get into clubs before she became a best-selling female artist. Zooey also starred in Katy’s Not the End of the World video, whereby she gets abducted by aliens who mistake her for the popstar. Even the aliens agree!
10. Robert Downey Jr. and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Robert Downey Jr. and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are strikingly similar. Both of a similar age, these Hollywood hunks tend to confuse movie-goers around the world with their matching features.
Something else they have in common? They both have a thing for the fantasy genre – one’s a Marvel hero and the other is a Walking Dead character. Are we sure these lookalike stars aren’t secretly related?
11. Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland
Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland have such an uncanny resemblance, it’s difficult telling these actresses apart. Mila has the iconic big eyes – Sarah has the iconic big eyes. Even their lips and eyebrows are the same!
The TV stars themselves even admit their similarities. Sarah answered a tweet that pointed out their resemblance saying, “We know ;)”. And even Mila revealed that she often gets confused for the Modern Family actress. “You pretend to be me. Can I pretend to be you?’” Hyland replied to her.
12. Will Ferrell and Chad Smith
These celebrity lookalikes might just be the most shocking and accurate on our list. Comedy movie genius Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers star Chad Smith are the absolute spitting image of each other.
These very obvious long-lost twin brothers often acknowledge that they are each other’s doppelgangers. They even appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in matching outfits for an epic drum-off. How can two famous people look so much alike?!
13. Amy Adams and Isla Fisher
There’s no denying that Amy Adams and Isla Fisher are two of a kind. These Hollywood actresses look so alike, it’s easy to mix them up when they’re on screen.
Even Lady Gaga has awkwardly confused the two. Isla Fisher admitted to The Hollywood Reporter that the singer said: ‘Thank you. Your performance in American Hustle, Amy…” As a big fan of Gaga, she didn’t want to tell her that she wasn’t Amy Adams: “So I just gracefully thanked her and bowed my head.”
14. Harry Styles and Mick Jagger
From their similar faces to their unique rocker style, Harry Styles and Mick Jagger are clearly two peas in a pod. I mean, it’s not just the boyband status that they have in common, is it? These artists look incredibly alike!
Of course, Mick is a lot older now, and we’re comparing the young version of him to Harry. At least we know what the One Direction lad will look like when he hits his 70s though, right?
15. Zoe Saldana and Thandie Newton
Are we sure Thandie Newton isn’t Zoe Saldana’s older (and British) sister? I mean, she’s a dead ringer for the Guardians of the Galaxy star! Their signature cheekbones and petite frames certainly make it hard to tell them apart.
Fun fact? Zoe revealed that her mother regularly confuses her for Thandie. “My mom still thinks that I’m in Westworld,” she said on The Late Late Show.
16. Hilary Duff and Victoria Pedretti
When she starred in You, we always thought Victoria Pedretti reminded us of someone. Then she went blonde in The Haunting of Bly Manor and we realized who it was – none other than Hilary Duff.
While we all think these young actresses are the carbon copy of each other, Pedretti has admitted that she doesn’t agree: “I don’t really look like any of these women”, she said, when she was compared to Hilary Duff, Kat Dennings, Jennifer Garner, Hilary Swank, and others.
17. Brittany Murphy and Lili Reinhart
If you’re a Riverdale fan, there’s no doubt that you also done a double take when looking at Lili Reinhart. She’s the mini replica of the late actress Brittany Murphy!
“They think I’m her reincarnated”, Lili revealed. Well, we’ll be damned if you weren’t, because the similarities are insane!
18. Charlie Hunnam and Travis Fimmel
Both belong to two of the biggest TV series around and now we’re wondering if they belong to the same parents, too! Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) and Travis Fimmel (Vikings) make us do a double take every time they’re on screen thanks to their twinning looks.
Let’s be honest. Has anyone actually seen Charlie and Travis in the same room at the same time? No? That settles the case then. They must be the same person.
19. Nicki Minaj and Cardi B
There will be a lot of fans who will fight us on this one. Nicki Minaj and Cardi B are often pitted against each other as female rap stars, but it’s clearly not just the music to blame – they also look so alike!
This isn’t something either rapstress would agree on though, as these celebrities have feuded in the past. That doesn’t take away the fact that they still look exactly the same. We said what we said.
20. Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard
We won’t be convinced that Jessica and Bryce are two different people until we see them standing next to each other in front of our very own eyes. These actresses are such celebrity lookalikes to the point where it confuses us.
I mean, we’re not the only ones who think it. Bryce’s father, Ron Howard even mistook Jessica for his own daughter. Now, if that doesn’t convince you of their resemblance, we don’t know what will.
So, there you have it. 20 pairs of celebrities that look like each other. It’s safe to say the Hollywood world works in mysterious ways. It won’t be long before another celeb makes an appearance looking just like another famous face.
