Stars are just like us; when they walk down the street, say hello or meet new folks, they can also get mistaken for other people.
While it may be quite hard to believe that our favorite Hollywood superstars do not look quite as unique as we think they are, it’s actually pretty cool to know which celebrities are the spitting images of each other.
From hip-hop legends to Hollywood’s sweethearts, take a peek at Hollywood’s most celebrated celebrity doppelgängers. They look so much alike, it seems almost impossible to tell them apart.
The resemblances are really uncanny, actually. It sort of makes you wonder how many times do these guys actually get the “Oh, you look like…” statement from all the people they meet.
11 Kathy Ireland and Denise Richards
If you’ve always been religious about keeping updated with the latest Hollywood gossip, there must have been a time where you must have felt so involved with the drama between Denise Richards with Charlie Sheen. While her ex-spouse may have been Richards' “claim to fame”, there are so many things people don’t know about her.
Fact #1: She was the gorgeous Bond girl in The World is Not Enough.
Fact #2: She shares an uncanny resemblance with Kathy Ireland. If you were born after the 90’s, the name might not ring a bell, but back in her heyday, she was a very famous swimsuit model. She’s actually appeared in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues.
9 Will.i.am and Wyclef Jean
Apart from sharing the love for music, do you know what these two have in common? Their looks.
In fact, during one of his interviews in national television, the Black Eyed Peas’ frontman Will.i.am was constantly referred to as Wyclef Jean. This went on until the reporter finally realized he mixed his musicians up.
8 Selena Gomez and Rachel Bilson
This blooming Wizard of Waverly Place, Selena Gomez, could probably walk into the set of The O.C. and no one would notice she’s not Summer Roberts, who is played by Rachel Bilson. That’s because, age aside, these two could pass as twins. They just have the same pixie-esque face and dark brown hair. They even have the same expressions and poses in their red carpet pictures.
7 Robin Williams and Bono
Robin Williams once confessed in an interview that his fans often mistake him for U2 frontman Bono. While the Mrs. Doubtfire actor isn’t quite too happy with this comparison, he claims to enjoy playing along with the joke until his fake Irish accent turns into Scottish. Truth is no one could really tell the difference until they actually start talking.
6 Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman
If the Pirates of the Caribbean actress Keira Knightley ever needs to call in sick, she can easily ask Black Swan star Natalie Portman to cover for her while she’s away. With their gorgeous eyes and long faces, these Hollywood superstars look like they may have been actually separated at birth. In fact, they are believed to have a biological relationship with each other. The only major difference is that Knightley is a lanky 5’7” while Portman clocks in at a very petite 5’3”.
5 Nina Dobrev and Victoria Justice
Knowing that Nina Dobrev actually has a long lost sister in Hollywood by the name of Victoria Justice who’s appeared on quite a number of Nickelodeon shows, it is quite strange that she had to play both Katherine and Elena in The Vampire Diaries. The show could have easily gotten both talented actresses and it’s as if they casted one and the same person.
4 Paz Vega and Penelope Cruz
Paz Vega was born in Seville in Spain and was raised in a Catholic household. She knew from the age of 15 that she wanted to act and went through a long term of training before starring on TV in the late 1990's.
While she’s certainly not as popular as her celebrity doppelgänger, Penelope Cruz, who’s appeared in a number of Hollywood hits such as Vanilla Sky, Blow and Vicki Christina Barcelona, she’s actually quite famous in her hometown.
Many would concur that the resemblance may have been because of the fact they’re both Spanish by blood. Still, a lot of Spanish women don’t look quite as gorgeous as these two.
3 Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood
One may be a wizard and the other one’s a hobbit, but they sure look like brothers.
When the Harry Potter actor Daniel Rascliffe was filming December Boys on Kangaroo Island in Australia, he was shocked when people would greet him with a “Hi Frodo!” and think he is the Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood. Whether it’s false humility or not, one thing is for sure: they look so much alike. Even Australians say so.
2 Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox
With their sultry appeal, piercing light eyes and voluptuous lips, it doesn’t come as a bit of a surprise that these two bombshells have been voted separately as the world’s sexiest woman. What comes as a surprise, however, is that no one ever awarded them both as the world’s sexiest celebrity lookalikes.
Apart from their ridiculously good looks, Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox do have a lot of similarities with each other including their strong personalities and their symbolic tattoos on their shoulder blades.
