After comedy super star Will Ferrel and RHCP drummer Chad Smith addressed their lookalike status and had an epic drum off on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon a cry came out from the Internet asking for other celebrities who share similar features to pit themselves against one another in battle.
Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel
Not only do both of these starlets creep me out but they also have a distinctly anime vibe going for them. It’s possible that those two things aren’t mutually exclusive.
Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Until we have definitive scientific proof that Javier Bardem and JDM are two different actors I’m going to keep believing that this is one hunky guy using a different name in order to evade the IRS. They’ve both played respective creepy bad asses, Bardem changed the way (or made you take notice) of a bolt pistol in No Country for Old Men and Jeffrey Dubs Morgan was the only good part of the Watchmen adaptation. Besides playing scary loaners who kill people, both actors have played in their fair share of romantic comedies. Bardem suffered through a summer holiday in Spain with Scarlett Johansson in Vicky Christina Barcelona and J Deamo is in this years “They Came Together” where he probably plays the quirky best friend or smoldering antagonist. My theory about them being the same guy still holds up.
Zoe Saldana and Jada Pinkett Smith
Have you seen Jada Pinkett Smith lately? Me either. And we usually bump into each other at Guitar Center all the time; we’re all like “Hey girl!” Here’s my theory: Jada Pinkett Smith found a coven of witches while she was on a European tour with her Nu Metal Band “Wicked Wisdom” (ugh I know) and had some kind of youth spell cast on her in exchange for never touring with Wicked Wisdom again. Throw in a name change to throw off Will Smith and weird kids and you’ve got yourself a perfectly reasonable explanation for the sudden appearance of Zoe Saldana.
Ian Somerhalder and Chace Crawford
I have no idea who either of these babes are but they look great. Guys, if you’re reading this you’re very handsome but I have no idea who you are. Sorry. Who ever these mystery men are they sure do look alike. Hold your hand up to your monitor and cover both of their faces, those eyebrows are basically twins, do these two pieces of man candy realize that they went outside with the same face outfits on today?
Khloe Kardashian and Chyna
Maybe I’m stretching the definition of celebrity a bit here, but before you start splitting hairs I implore you to take a look at these two ladies and tell me that they weren’t separated at birth. If I were Chyna I would try to sneak into Kimye’s wedding, those gift bags are going to be next level bonkers!
Amy Adams and Isla Fisher
Can we agree that we’re all the worst? Good. As a society that takes in more entertaining content than anything else we have no good excuse for confusing Amy Adams and Isla Fisher but it happens on a daily basis. As a semi intelligent person (ahem, I attended college) I know that Isla Fisher was in my favorite movie of all time “Hot Rod” and that Amy Adams was in one of my favorite episodes of The Office “Booze Cruise,” but does that stop me from having hour long arguments with my girlfriend about who played Mickey in “Trouble with the Curve?” No it doesn’t. And that’s why I slept on the couch last night.
Zac Efron and Garrett Clayton
It’s not really weird that these two look like the exact same person because they both got their start with Disney and everyone with half a brain knows that Disney has a cloning facility under Space Mountain. It’s 2014, clones are an accepted inevitability and we’re over the flying cars that we don’t have.
Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly
When I watched the Wolf of Wall Street I said what everyone else said, “Wow Jaime Pressly was great.” But it turns out that we were all wrong; because Jaime Pressly was actually played by someone name Margot Robbie. If only there were some kind of crediting system for motion pictures!
Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley
Similarly to Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel, these two starlets give me the creeps, but in a less anime sort of way and in a more “Yikes! Stop making that face at me…” kind of way. Nat Po and KK look so much alike that George Lucas cast K Bones in one of those atrocious Star Wars prequels as Natalie Portman’s double. Thanks George, you made this article 5% easier to write.
Johnny Depp and Skeet Ulrich
Nice try Skeet, but we’re never going to take you seriously if you keep calling yourself Skeet. Mr. Ulrich even went so far as to appear in a Wes Craven horror film with a Johnny Depp hair cut and white tee combination to try tricking us into believing that he was our nation’s next best Depp. Nice try Skeet.
Alternate Joke #1: Everyone knows you’re not supposed to give yourself a nickname.
Alternate Joke #2: Every once in a while a rumor pops up about Johnny Depp hanging out in costume on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney Land, but that’s actually Skeet Ulrich at his new day job.
So who did I miss? Probably a billion different stars and their secret twinsies, right? Try to figure out if I used two pictures of Skeet Ulrich in that last image or leave your favorite celebrity matches in the comments, if you say Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton I will scream.
