Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Javier Bardem is mostly known for celebrity roles as a super villain in the recent films Skyfall and No Country for Old Men. Jeffrey Dean Morgan, on the other hand, is known to us mostly as a TV personality, acting in shows like Grey’s Anatomy and The Walking Dead.
If you look closely, however, you will realize that regardless of their typical roles, the two look exceptionally similar. It doesn’t take more than a quick glance to realize they might be something close to twins. Rest assured, however, that they are not.
Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison
Have you heard of the TV show Big Love? Well, neither have we. We have, however, all seen the movie Walk the Line — and it’s in the latter that we see Ginnifer Goodwin starring as Johnny Cash’s love and paramore, Vivian Cash.
Jennifer Morrison, on the other hand, has had a very different career. Starring in TV shows such as the ever-popular House, and then moving onto the movie scene with the likes of Star Trek, she’s flourished in a different way. Who knew the two would look like twins!
Jordin Sparks and America Ferrera
Jordin Sparks is perhaps best known for her performances (and eventual win) in the 2016 season of American Idol. The burgeoning star won hearts with her finale performance of “This Is My Now.”
America Ferrera, on the other hand, has made her career in acting, starring in both The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and the hit TV show Ugly Betty.
Amazingly, the two women have a nearly identical look! Wowza!
Peter Jackson and Jason Segel
All of us at one point or another have seen a Peter Jackson film. Whether it was Lord of the Rings or one of his lesser-known films from the ‘80s, the man has been around the block. But many don’t realize he has a high-profile celebrity doppelganger.
This doppelganger is Jason Segel. Segel is known to most of us through his performances in Sex Tape and Forgetting Sarab Marshell. If you’ve ever seen Peter Jackson side-by-side Segel, however, you can’t be blamed for thinking the two are twins!
Stephen Colbert and Bob Saget
Stephen Colbert really needs no introduction. He’s moved from the extremely popular Jon Stewart Show to enterprise his own late night show The Colbert Report. Wherever he worked, you probably didn’t realize he had a celebrity doppelganger.
And who, you dare ask, is this doppelganger? None other than Bob Saget of course!
One the star of a late-night political talk show and the other a star of Full House, both celebrities look so similar you likely struggle to tell the two apart.
Blake Lively and Ke$ha
Blake Lively is an actress we know from both TV and movies. She starred in Gossip Girl, The Age of Adaline, and even The Shallows — a drama about shark attacks.
Lively’s counterpart resides in the world of music.
This counterpart is none other than singer Ke$ha.
Although the resemblance between the singer and Lively is uncanny, the pair have had vastly different careers. Rather than starring in movies and TV shows, Ke$sha makes her living on the stage, belting with a mic in hand.
Portia de Rossi and Drea de Matteo
Portia de Rossi is perhaps best known for her recurring role in the popular TV series Arrested Development. But beyond that, she’s been in a handful of cult classics like Scream II and Stigmata.
What you likely didn’t know, however, is that de Rossi has a doppelganger: Drea de Matteo.
de Matteo is known for her role in the popular TV series The Sopranos. Both actors have similar career trajectories and look alike!
Mike Tomlin and Omar Epps
Mike Tomlin is likely familiar to all you football fans out there. He is, after all, the head coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers. But, he might also be known to you as the doppelganger to this famous TV actor — Omar Epps.
Epps is perhaps best known for his recurring role in the TV drama House. Playing Dr. Eric Foreman, he helped to level the otherwise un-containable ego of the show’s leading protagonists.
Despite their vastly different careers, both men look stunningly similar.
Daniel Day-Lewis and Jennifer Connelly
Daniel Day-Lewis is widely regarded as one of the best method actors on the planet. And, because of this, he has earned himself many high-profile roles, playing everyone from Abraham Lincoln to a fictional oil baron in There Will Be Blood.
Few realize, however, that Day-Lewis has a celebrity look alike. And this look-alike is none other than actress Jennifer Connelly. While some might not realize the difference, it doesn’t take more than a glance at a side-by-side to see.
Krysten Ritter and Anne Hathaway
Krysten Ritter has carved her way into the acting world with many different roles. More recently, however, she is known for her role as the leading protagonist in the show Jessica Jones. Through all this detective work she likely realized she had a celebrity twin.
Ritter’s twin is the stupendously famous actress Anne Hathaway. The two have, in case you didn’t notice, a strikingly similar face. While the two’s careers have focused on different parts of the entertainment industry, their likeness could not be more uncanny.
Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry
It’s not often that you get a pair that looks so stunningly similar that the pair’s parents can barely tell them apart. Yet, that is exactly what we get with these two superstars: Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry.
As you’re probably aware, Deschanel is a TV personality and musician who’s starred in the very popular series New Girl.
Perry, on the other hand, is a world-famous pop star. The two, in case you didn’t notice, look nearly identical. Crazy!
Isla Fisher and Amy Adams
Isla Fisher is an actress many of us know from the movie Wedding Crashers. She has striking red hair, which has made her easily recognizable.
She’s not the only actress that has become well-known for her gorgeous red locks, however.
Amy Adams, for instance, looks eerily similar! Both of the actresses have long, flowing red locks, making them unique in the movie business.
While both actors have had entirely different careers, their look will always remain strikingly similar.
Renée Zellweger and Joey Lauren Adams
Renée Zellweger is an actor probably best known for her starring role in the Bridget Jones’s Diary series. Other than this, she has starred in a handful of other well-known films, such as Me, Myself & Irene, Chicago, and Jerry Maguire.
Joey Lauren Adams, on the other hand, is slightly lesser-known but eerily familiar in appearance. It’s like the two could have separated at birth! Joey Lauren Adams got her name starring in the hit classic Dazed and Confused, but also more recent films like Big Daddy.
Kenny G and Weird Al
Kenny G is perhaps one of the most famous saxophone players alive. He’s made a name for himself primarily playing jazz. But other than his musical talents, the man is known for his extremely distinctive curly and luscious hair.
But he’s not the only man with gorgeous locks! Weird Al, a comedian/musician, also has enviable hair. While Kenny G plays jazz, Weird Al is best known for his mock-u-rock tunes like Fat, Amish Paradise, and White and Nerdy.
While the two could not have more disparate tastes in music, their appearances could not be more twin-like.
Will Ferrell and Chad Smith
If you’re anything like us, you’ve seen a Red Hot Chili Peppers live show and thought to yourself: “Is that Will Ferrell on the drums?” This baffling scene isn’t the result of early-onset dementia. Rather, it’s the result of two celebrity look-a-likes.
Chad Smith, the drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, looks an awful lot like the majorly famous actor Will Ferrell.
To commemorate the likeness, the two had a “drum-off” on late-night television show Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Elijah Wood and Mischa Barton
Elijah Wood can easily be described as an eclectic actor. Still, most of us probably know him best from his timeless performance as Frodo in the movie remake of Lord of the Rings. But far fewer of us are aware of his celebrity doppelganger.
While the similarities might be difficult to see at first, a handful of glances later and you will not be able to unsee the difference: Mischa Barton. This actor is well-known from her roles in the TV show The O.C. and the movie The Sixth Sense.
Brian Baumgartner and Greg Isdaner
Brian Baumgartner is familiar to all of us through his perfectly executed performance as Kevin Malone in TV show The Office but has had roles in a handful of movies.
But how many out there knew he had a near-celebrity twin?
Baumgartner’s twin is none other than Greg Isdaner. Greg Isdaner, in case you were unaware, is the former guard to the Dallas Cowboys. When he grew out his hair (or what little hair he did have), he looked exactly like Baumgartner.
Elias Koteas and Christopher Meloni
Elias Koteas has had an interesting movie career, mostly starring as a peripheral character in war and action movies. A few of the more notable films he’s starred in include the likes of Shooter, The Thin Red Line, and Crash.
Elias Koteas, however, also has a celebrity twin: actor Christopher Meloni. Meloni has had a somewhat different career, playing a colonel in Man of Steel and playing a side character in Wet Hot American Summer. Who knew they both looked like twins?
Paul Reubens and Alan Cumming
Pee-wee Herman (who’s real name is Paul Reubens) is easily one of the most singular characters around. First off, his name is almost instantly recognizable. And, if you don’t recognize it, you’ve likely been living beneath a rock. But, believe it or not, there is another celebrity that looks like him.
Pee-wee Herman has a near-celebrity twin by the name of Alan Cumming. This man has a similar bone structure. He doesn’t however, at all play the same type of character. Rather, he’s often portrayed as the villain. (Perhaps he’s Pee-wee Herman’s evil twin?)
Zoe Saldana and Thandie Newton
Zoe Saldana has had a wonderfully successful career, starring in everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies to the blockbuster hit Avatar.
When she’s not painted for one of her many alien roles, you notice she has another actor that just might be her twin.
Thandie Newton looks strikingly similar to Saldana. They have a similar skin tone, bone structure, and acting career. While one (Saldana) typically plays heroes, and the other (Newton) plays villains, you can’t help but notice the similarities.
Brad Pitt and Robert Redford
Brad Pitt is somebody all of us know. Whether it’s from his role as Tyler Durdan in Fight Club or as Achilles in Troy, we’ve all seen him somewhere. Some of us, however, might have seen his resemblance in another famous actor — Robert Redford.
While the two are separated by many years, the actors tend to have an uncanny resemblance — the way their faces are shaped, their general demeanor. Whatever it is, the two could practically be twins. You couldn’t be blamed if you struggled to tell the two apart!
Brad Pitt and Benicio del Toro
We’ve already talked about Brad Pitt a bit, but here we’re set to talk about him just a little bit more. And what is there to talk about except another of his celebrity twins? That’s right, our boy Brad has another celebrity twin. His name is Benicio del Toro.
Most of us know del Toro from his role in Traffic, The Usual Suspects, and Sicario. But many of us also already knew him because of his similarities to Brad Pitt.
While the two have had very different acting careers, that by no means suggests that they don’t look alike.
Helen Hunt and Leelee Sobieski
Helen Hunt is one of those actresses who starred in many ‘90s and early 2000s films. She starred in Twister, for instance, as well as the classic movie Cast Away.
Few of us have likely noticed that this actor has a celebrity twin, however.
Helen Hunt’s twin is none other than Leelee Sobieski. Sobieski is a lesser-known actor who has starred in a few more recent films, such as 88 Minutes and Joy Ride. If you look at her closely, you will realize her many similarities to Helen Hunt.
Roselyn Sanchez and Nicole Scherzinger
Roslyn Sanchez has been in her fair share of movies. She played Isabella Molina in Rush Hour 2, Monique Vasquez in The Game Plane, and, more recently, Lisa Morales in Acts of Valor.
While some of us may know her well, we might not have known she has an actor twin.
Sanchez’s actor twin is none other than Nicole Scherzinger, who has starred in Men in Black 3, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and Sina in the cartoon animation of Moana. You don’t even have to look closely to see how similar these two appear.
Amanda Peet and Lake Bell
Amanda Peet has starred in an abundance of movies, ranging from 2012 to A Lot Like Love on the other. So while her spirits can cover everything from the apocalyptic to the romantic, they probably didn’t expect they’d have to deal with an almost twin.
And who, exactly, is this person that could be her twin? Lake Bell, of course. Bell has starred in movies like No Strings Attached and It’s Complicated. And no, the “it” in It’s Complicated was not referring to her feelings about having a celebrity look alike.
Lauren Conrad and Carmen Electra
Lauren Conrad is perhaps best known for her performance on reality TV show The Hills. But other than that, she’s had a role in Epic Movie, Life Happens, and even Family Guy. But beyond that, she looks strikingly similar to another actor — Carmen Electra.
Electra is well known in the acting community as a self-disparaging “dumb blonde.” She’s had roles in Scary Movie, Scary Movie 4, and Meet the Spartans. She also even had a role in Epic Movie alongside her celebrity doppelganger Conrad. If you couldn’t tell, she and Conrad do look strangely similar …
Ali Larter and Diana Krall
Ali Larter is perhaps best known for her roles in the Final Destination series. But other than that, she’s been in Obsessed and Legally Blonde. Quite the resume if you ask us!
Little did you know, however, another celebrity looks just like her.
And who, you ask, is this celebrity? Why it’s Diana Krall of course! Krall, unlike Larter, is a professional jazz musician, having played on many movie soundtracks and performed on stages worldwide. If you take a look, however, you’ll see that the two look very similar.
Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman
Keira Knightley is a woman of tremendous fame. While she might have gained her strongest career launch by the movie series Pirates of the Caribbean, she also played leading roles in Pride and Prejudice and Domino.
You had to have already known, however, the Knightley and another actor — Natalie Portman — look hugely similar. The two are so similar, in fact, that Knightley acted as Portman’s stunt double for the Star Wars prequels.
Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain
Bryce Dallas Howard is an actor fresh to the scene, having recently starred alongside Chris Pratt in the Jurassic World series and as a leading protagonist in a Black Mirror episode. But little did you know, this fresh face has a celebrity look alike.
Dallas Howard happens to look a lot like Jessica Chastain, another red-haired actor.
Chastain has made her way through movies like Interstellar and Zero Dark Thirty. She and Howard could not be closer to twins.
Jaime Pressly and Margot Robbie
Jaime Pressly has been in a handful of movies mostly centered around comedic themes. Of these are the likes of Not Another Teen Movie, I Love You, Man, and the TV series My Name Is Earl. She also has a celebrity look alike.
The look-alike for Pressly is none other than Margot Robbie, the actor who has starred in the recent movies with Harley Quinn. But other than that, she was in The Wolf of Wall Street. She has an uncanny resemblance to Pressly. Simply uncanny.
