We live in a big world where we don’t know what lies just around the corner. But have you ever heard of dopplegangers? Have you met yours yet? Apparently, in Hollywood, doppelgängers are easy to come by! You’ve probably seen them quite often in movies and TV shows. We’ve gathered 30 pairs of beautiful yet uncanny lookalike from Hollywood elite. They share similar facial features to one another often having audiences mistaken from each other! 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.
Although 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.
Two 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.
These 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.
Apparently 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.
Not 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.
Another 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.
At 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.
These 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.
Banks 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.
I mean, this one is simply uncanny! I wonder which one is the evil one?
Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard.
These 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.
This similarity has often been discussed on McHale’s show Community, even though I personally can’t see it.
Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek.
These 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?
Will Ferrell and Chad Smith.
Another creepy one. I mean, it’s like Orphan Black in here!
Leelee Sobieski and Jennifer Lawrence.
Before 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.
Both 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.
If it wasn’t for Connelly’s beautiful eyebrows, these two could be twins. Or at least sisters.
Nina Dobrev and Victoria Justice.
Justice 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.
In 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.
Many 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.
You 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.
Probably 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.
Another 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.
Ed 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.
Another pairing that just look so damn similar.
Zach Braff and Dax Shepard.
Come on! This one is just creepy!
Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood.
Another 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.
Robbie 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!
Robbie 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.
The 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…
