20 Famous People That Look So Similar We Can’t Tell Them Apart

Some celebrities look so much alike that it’s hard to believe they’re not related. From similar facial features to matching hairstyles, these stars share shocking resemblances. In this article, we’ll explore 20 celebrities who could easily pass as twins.

Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain and the daughter of filmmaker Ron Howard – Bryce Dallas Howard – have more things in common than their careers. The two actresses also share a strikingly similar face and hair color, and many people still confuse them for the same person, despite their very different roles.

Back in the 1960s, actor James Brolin looked a lot like actor Christian Bale does now. They’ve both got pointed noses, cheeky smiles, and strong eyebrows.

One major feature that actors Ian Somerhalder and Rob Lowe have been compared for is their blue eyes. The two actors, who come from different generations in Hollywood, have a chiseled look, strong jawline, and powerful gaze that has made them celebrity heartthrobs.

Margot Robbie and Emma Mackey

Perhaps one of the most recognized pairs of celebrity doppelgangers today is that of actresses Margot Robbie and Emma Mackey. The Australian star of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood and the younger star of teen drama Sex Education have nearly identical facial features. And this similarity is not lost on Hollywood executives, as the two have actually been paired alongside each other in the upcoming Barbie movie by Greta Gerwig. 

Rosamund Pike and Grace Kelly

Rosamund Pike – star of Pride and Prejudice and Gone Girl – shares a striking resemblance with a young Grace Kelly. The two share the same prominent cheekbones, blonde hair, and elegant beauty on the screen.

Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel

Katy Perry’s striking visual similarity to actress Zooey Deschanel has long been a topic of pop culture conversation. With jet-black hair and big piercing blue eyes, the two can be seen side by side in photos looking almost like identical twins.

Zach Braff and Dax Shepard

Zach Braff – known for his leading role in Garden State and the decade-long series Scrubs – has something else in common with Dax Shephard other than them both being actors. They also look a lot alike – like, a lot.

They look so similar that multiple people have noted the doppelganger connection, including Braff himself. Several years ago, a FaceSwap picture of Braff and Shepard was circulating the Internet that Shepard’s wife, Kristen Bell, commented on.

Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman

Both Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman have long been lauded for their success in dramatic acting roles. But they’ve also gained a reputation for being Hollywood lookalikes. And although Portman is American and Knightley is British, the two have a lot in common.

In fact, when they were younger, they even played each other’s doubles in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom MenaceSo, it’s no wonder that people get confused!

Amy Adams and Isla Fisher

Here is yet another pair of famous redheads who share a striking resemblance. Isla Fisher – known for movies like Wedding Crashers – and Amy Adams – known for her roles in Sharp Objects and Enchanted – are often confused for one another.

But, it only takes a few minutes of hearing each of them speak to tell them apart, as Fisher is known for her unique European and Australian accent, and Adams is known for her American voice.

Harry Styles and Mick Jagger

Believe it or not, these two singing sensations have more in common than their British roots and musical talent. Harry Styles also looks a lot like a young Mick Jagger – particularly when he was in his rocker heyday and had long hair. When Styles was sporting his extra-long hair, he looked even more like Jagger.

Bella Hadid and Carla Bruni

It’s not uncommon for different people in the modeling industry to look similar, as agents and photographers often have a certain look in mind. But sometimes, there are similarities so striking that it’s almost like looking at twins, and that’s the case with supermodel Bella Hadid and her modeling predecessor Carla Bruni.

Jennifer Lawrence and Helen Mirren

You might not say that Helen Mirren looks like Jennifer Lawrence as she is right now, but if you compare photos of young Mirren with J-Law, you’ll see the similarities. Both have sultry eyes, blonde hair, and defining lips when you see them on-screen in the movies.

In fact, certain talk show hosts have even made comments to Jennifer Lawrence about the resemblance, such as Jon Stewart.

Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly

Leighton Meester – star of the popular 2000s series Gossip Girl – and actress Minka Kelly have often been mistaken for one another. They have the same heart-shaped face, the same smile, and even the same long brown hair.

And it doesn’t help that they’ve even starred alongside each other in the same film before – The Roommate. They also appeared in photos to promote the movie, showing how much they looked alike.

Lily Collins and Audrey Hepburn

Daughter of pop star Phil Collins, Lily Collins has had her face on many big screens over the years. And some say that face looks a heck of a lot like a young Audrey Hepburn’s face. The two share thick, dark eyebrows, slender chins, and a similar cupid’s bow above their lips. Although they aren’t related, they could pass for sisters or perhaps mother and daughter.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger

Even though Heath Ledger was Australian and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is American, the two shared a resemblance when Ledger was still alive. The thin-lipped actor heartthrobs even shared leading roles in the 1999 popular teen film 10 Things I Hate About You, where their similarities were on full display.

Brad Pitt and Robert Redford

Again, here’s another example of two celebrities who may not look alike now but definitely would have if they were the same age at the same time. Specifically, in the 1970s, when Robert Redford had huge fame, he looked a lot like the Brad Pitt we know and love today.

Lana Del Rey and Priscilla Presley

Although Lana Del Rey is very much of our modern era, her personal style has often emulated something from another era. This can be seen when you compare photos of her to a young Priscilla Presley. They both have big, dark hair, smoky eyes, and full lips that create a striking resemblance between them.

Lindsay Lohan and Elizabeth Taylor

Although Lindsay Lohan is a famous redheaded actress, it doesn’t change the fact that she looks a lot like Elizabeth Taylor, with her sultry eyes striking beauty. So it only made sense when, in 2012, Lohan played Taylor in the movie Liz & Dick about Taylor’s life.
