The world is a big place, and often in our lifetimes, we will never see the planet in its entirety. Because of this, we have no idea what actually may wait around the corner. For all we know, there may be a perfect double of us, living a completely different life in another part of the world. As a concept, the doppelgänger is actually pretty terrifying, and there have been many cases where human doubles have been discovered by their lookalikes. But it seems that many doppelgängers actually exist in the glittering world of Hollywood, with many celebrities sharing similar facial features as others. And in Hollywood it’s a lot harder to hide the similarities. You’ll be amazed by the amount of uncanny lookalikes that exist among the Hollywood elite, some celebrities can even boast having more than one clone working beside them.
Sarah Hyland and Mila Kunis.
via: insiderAlthough there is almost a decade between these two actresses, they are still often mistaken for each other. You may recognise Hyland as being one of the stars of Modern Family, while Kunis is the Oscar-nominated actress known for her roles in Black Swan, Ted and Family Guy. Since meeting in 2010, the actresses have even agreed to pretend to be each other in public. Hyland even stated in an interview that: “[Kunis] said that sometimes she pretends she's me because it makes her feel young. I asked if I could pretend to be her next time somebody asks me if I'm her, and she said OK."
Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley.
via: insiderTwo blockbuster actresses, known for their work in Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean, Knightley and Portman also share a lot of similarities in their appearance. Knightley even portrayed Portman’s double in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Who knew?
Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes.
via: insiderThese two actors have been good friends for many years, often starring alongside each other in films such as Schindler’s List and The Clash of the Titans. In most cases, Neeson plays the hero and Fiennes the villain, but in real life they are devoted pals. In an interview, Neeson spoke about his similarities to Fiennes: "He is one of my best, best, dearest friends. I keep getting fans and stuff mixing me up with Ralph because we have very similar profiles. So I've been complimented on winning a Tony Award for my Hamlet, he's been complimented on the 'Taken' movies."
Amy Adams and Isla Fisher.
via: insiderApparently redheads are easy to mix up, as it appears that Amy Adams and Isla Fisher are also often mistaken for each other. Of course, a major difference between the actresses is that Adams has been nominated for several Oscars, while Fisher has yet to receive such praise.
Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel.
via: insiderNot all celebrities warm to the notion of being mistaken for someone else. Deschanel infamously went on record to state how annoying she found it, when people mistook her for Katy Perry. However, the New Girl actress soon grew accustom to the mistake. "I was relieved because everyone kept saying 'this girl looks so much like you. And then I met her and I was like, 'Thank God she's attractive!' I was worried she was gonna be an unattractive person."
Gerard Butler and Clive Owen.
via: insiderAnother Hollywood duo who are often mistaken for each other, I think it has something to do with the dark hair and stubble.
Susan Surrandon and Sigourney Weaver.
via: insiderAt the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in 2016, Sarandon admitted that she and Weaver are often mistaken for each other, Sarandon has even taken credit for Weaver’s iconic performance in Alien. "I wanna just clarify a few things. Sigourney may have left the stage but we are two different people. I have taken credit for 'Alien' many times and she's signed autographs for me." Sarandon has even referred to Weaver as her ‘Bad ass alter-ego’
Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon Levitt.
via: insiderThese two actors once starred alongside each other in 90’s classic, 10 Things I Hate About You, and since then it’s been hard to tell them apart.
Chelsea Handler and Elizabeth Banks.
via: insiderBanks has admitted on many occasions that she often pretends to be the comedienne when she is mistaken for her. Even admitting that she does it as to not upset any mistaken fans. How kind of her!
Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Javier Bardem.
via: insiderI mean, this one is simply uncanny! I wonder which one is the evil one?
Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard.
via: insiderThese two actresses starred alongside each other in the Oscar-nominated film The Help, and since then, their similarities have only grown. But it appears that both Chastain and Howard are in on the joke. Chastain even shared this hilarious post on Twitter.
Ryan Seacrest and Joel McHale.
via: insiderThis similarity has often been discussed on McHale’s show Community, even though I personally can’t see it.
Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek.
via: insiderThese two were actually mistaken on the official Instagram account for the Oscars, back in 2014. But in real life, they are very close friends and often take selfies with each other. Maybe just to keep confusing people?
Zoe Saldana and Thandie Newton
via: Getty ImagesZoe Saldana and Thandie Newton look so alike that, according to People, even Zoe's mom mixes them up. "She thinks I'm in Westworld," Saldana said.
Evan Rachel Wood and Rachel Brosnahan
Hilary Swank and Jennifer Garner
via: Getty ImagesWow, the star of Million Dollar Baby really does look like the star of Alias. And since so much of Jennifer Garner's role in that show was to dress up and go undercover in different worlds to get the information she needed, who's to say she wasn't in Million Dollar Baby? Could those two properties be in a shared cinematic universe?
Glenn Close and Cloris Leachman
via: Getty ImagesGlenn Close was in Damages, and Cloris Leachman was in The Mary Tyler Moore Show. How hard is that to remember? For fans of the actresses, apparently pretty hard. Hollywood.com
Jeff Bridges and Kurt Russell
via: Getty ImagesGonna be honest here, I definitely thought it was funny that the actor behind The Dude could also play the badass from Escape to New York. Turns out, they're different people and I don't pay very close attention.
Regina Hall and Regina King
via: Getty ImagesDo you think this mix-up would happen as often if they weren't both named "Regina"? Apparently, Regina King is the beneficiary of this confusion, as she told People, “I hope she wins [more awards], because people get us confused and I get all the perks. Seriously, they’re like ‘Here’s a gift certificate for Regina King, for $5,000 for Barney’s’ and I’m just like, ‘I’m her!’"
James McAvoy and Ewan McGregor
via: Getty ImagesBoth James McAvoy and Ewan McGregor have played younger versions of future all-powerful mentors — Professor X and Obi-Wan Kenobi, respectively — so it's no wonder they sometimes get confused. Besides looking similar, these two have a wise, other-worldy air about them.
Helen Mirren and Alexandra Grant
via: Getty ImagesWhen Keanu Reeves showed up to lat year's Oscars with his girlfriend Alexandra Grant, enough people thought he was holding hands with Helen Mirren that Page Six ran a story about it. One Twitter user said, “I wasn’t wearing my glasses at first and I legit thought he was dating Helen Mirren which I also would have been here for."
Odeya Rush and Mila Kunis
via: Getty ImagesNow, with this being the second time she's appeared on this list, is it possible Mila Kunis just has "one of those faces"? Could be, but when you look at her side-by-side with Odeya Rush, it really does look like you're looking at a picture of someone in their first year of high school next to a picture of them in their first year of college.
Emily Kinney and Evanna Lynch
via: Getty ImagesDoes Emily Kinney of The Walking Dead look a lot like Evanna Lynch from Harry Potter? Yes she does, but that doesn't mean it's okay to get them confused. Evanna Lynch played Luna Lovegood, possibly the best character in objectively the best book series, and she is therefore unique and irreplaceable and we must all stan for her.
Jada Pinkett Smith and Zoe Saldana
via: Getty ImagesHere's Zoe Saldana once again, lookin' a lot like another famous Hollywood actress. It almost makes you think Zoe was created in a lab to mimic the faces of already successful Hollywood actresses.
Chord Overstreet and Austin Butler
via: RedditAustin Butler from The Carrie Diaries and Chord Overstreet from Glee look like an older and younger brother (although I don't know which one is which).
Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer
Alicia Silverstone and Kristen Stewart
via: Getty ImagesMaybe it's because they come from such different movie eras — Alicia Silverstone's heyday was in the '90s during Clueless, while K-Stew's heyday is probably right now, if it wasn't during Twilight — but these two look so much to me like an older sister who is just off to college who can give advice to her sophomore sister about her new chemistry teacher because she had him a few years back.
Rachel Bilson and Selena Gomez
via: Getty ImagesAnother pair who look like older and younger sisters, Rachel Bilson hopped straight from The O.C. to Hart of Dixie, while Selena Gomez hopped straight from Wizards of Waverly Place to Spring Breakers. Similar career paths, similar faces — that what you get from Rachel Bilson and Selena Gomez.
Dane Cook and Skylar Astin
We don't see it. @DaneCook http://t.co/0kOVQVvsja— Skylar Astin (@Skylar Astin)1373144549.0
Chandra Wilson and Alex Newell
Chace Crawford and Ian Somerhalder
Jeremy Irons and Daniel Day-Lewis
via: Getty ImagesAh, it's the Good Acting Boys (as I'm sure Jeremy Irons and Daniel Day-Lewis' improv team would be called if they ever started one_. Those long lanky faces, as well as their soulful and intense eyes, make these two hard to tell apart.
Jai Courtney and Phillip Phillips
via: Getty ImagesIn fairness to Phillip Phillips, who won season 11 of American Idol, Jai Courtney is one of those guys who literally looks like
Zachary Quinto and Eli Roth
via: Getty ImagesMan, remember how scary Zachary Quinto was during the first season of Heroes? And remember how messed up every single Eli Roth movie ever has been? These two not only look alike, they creep you out alike.
Drea de Matteo and Portia de Rossi
via: Getty ImagesI definitely watched The Sopranos after Arrested Development and, upon seeing Christopher's girlfriend Adrianna, I remember thinking "Is that Lindsey Bluth?" SPOILER ALERT: it was not Lindsay Bluth.
Jordana Brewster and Demi Moore
Emmanuelle Chriqui and JWowwImagine you're Emmanuelle Chriqui. You've been working steadily as an actress for about five years, appearing in movies here and there. And then Jersey Shore comes out, and you spy this girl named JWoww who looks exactly like you become this pop culture sensation. Would you ever want to act in anything literally ever again? Why even bother?
Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly
via: ImgurNot only do these two actresses look exactly alike, but they even appeared in the same movie, The Roommate. Hopefully they're in for the gritty reboot of Sister Sister next.
Logan Marshall-Green and Tom Hardy
via: Getty ImagesMaybe it's just because I love The Dark Knight Rises so much, but I think Tom Hardy looks like a real person, while Logan Marshall-Green looks like someone did their best to sculpt Tom Hardy.
Anne Hathaway and Amal Clooney
via: Getty ImagesNot only do these two look alike, but they've both been romantically linked to Batmen — Anne onscreen to Christian Bale in the aforementioned The Dark Knight Rises, and Amal in real life to George Clooney, the second-worst of all the Batmen. (Val Kilmer just kind of didn't do anything with the role, you know?)
Kathryn Hahn and Ana Gasteyer
via: Getty ImagesIt's so crazy that these actresses not only look alike, but they both trend towards comedy. Hahn was in Step Brothers and Anchorman, while Gasteyer is an SNL alum who also appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Will Forte and Robby Hayes
via: Getty ImagesThe runner-up from JoJo's season of The Bachelorette was former Olympic swimmer Robby Hayes. And man, does that guy ever look like Will Forte. I mean come on. Now, Robby was eliminated in Week Six from Bachelor in Paradise. How long do we think Will Forte would've lasted? And remember, everyone on Last Man On Earth seemed to hate him almost immediately.
Kyle Richards and Kacey Musgraves
via: Getty ImagesSinger and songwriter Kacey Musgraves looks a lot like a younger Kyle Richards. And, I'll just ask you, is that the meanest thing anyone's ever said about Kyle Richards? I know I'd hate to know anyone looks like a younger me. I'm still young myself, dammit!
Will Ferrell and Chad Smith.
via: insiderAnother creepy one. I mean, it’s like Orphan Black in here!
Leelee Sobieski and Jennifer Lawrence.
via: insiderBefore Lawrence became the star she is, Sobieski was ruling the Hollywood scene and the similarities in their appearance are uncanny. Sobieski no longer works in Hollywood, instead deciding to now focus on her growing family.
Jesse Eisenberg and Michael Cera.
via: insiderBoth known for playing the adorable nerdy type, these actors are also heavily mistaken for each other. But Cera also gets mistaken for Jon Heder. So maybe there’s just something in the water in Hollywood.
Jennifer Connelly and Demi Moore.
via: insiderIf it wasn’t for Connelly’s beautiful eyebrows, these two could be twins. Or at least sisters.
Nina Dobrev and Victoria Justice.
via: insiderJustice is literally a doppelgänger, quite ironic when considering that Dobrev played her own doppelgänger in the show The Vampire Diaries. They could have just hired Justice.
Nathan Fillion and Jeremy Renner.
via: insiderIn 2014, Fillion took to Twitter to rate his various Hollywood doubles. How did he grade Renner? Brothers. Which sounds fitting as hell to me!
Jordin Sparks and America Ferrera.
via: insiderMany people think that the Ugly Betty star and the American Idol winner are basically clones. Especially when their hair is down!
Paul Reubens and Alan Cumming.
via: insiderYou may recognise both of these actors, but we’re not going to tell you from where. You’ll have to figure it out for yourself.
Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon.
via: insiderProbably one of the most infamous Hollywood doppelgängers, even Damon has suffered an identity crisis over the mistake. But these two have it all planned out. “Mark and I have a deal. If we're mistaken for one another, we have to be as polite as possible."
Millie Bobby Brown and Natalie Portman.
via: insiderAnother Portman clone, the upcoming star of Stranger Things definitely channelled the actress in her season 2 performance. Maybe they can play sisters some time?
Rupert Grint and Ed Sheeran.
via: insiderEd Sheeran has been a blessing to ginger men everywhere, with many often being mistaken for the singer by female fans. But Sheeran also shares a lot of similarities with Harry Potter actor, Rupert Grint. Grint even appeared in Sheeran’s music video for the song “Lego House", where they take full advantage of their clone status.
John Mulaney and Grant Gustin.
via: insiderAnother pairing that just look so damn similar.
Zach Braff and Dax Shepard.
via: insiderCome on! This one is just creepy!
Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood.
via: insiderAnother one I don’t get. The only similarity between them is that they both were the star of a blockbuster fantasy saga!
Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly.
via: insiderRobbie is definitely the woman to watch right now, but be careful, because you may be looking at Jaime Pressly.
But Robbie has another Hollywood clone!
via: insiderRobbie also shares a lot of similarities with Emma Mackey, who is currently starring in the hit Netflix show, Sex Education. I mean, the likeness is uncanny!
Selena Gomez and Lucy Hale.
via: insiderThe Pretty Little Liars actress has often spoken out about how she is mistaken for Gomez. And, can you blame them? They look almost exactly alike! Maybe you'll be running into your own doppelgänger soon...
