A doppelganger is defined as "an apparition or double of a living person." A doppelganger is basically just an incredibly similar look-alike. It's an extremely strange and eerie phenomenon. You may be walking down the street and catch the eye of your exact double. At that moment, don't ignore the universe's cosmic power, embrace it. It's probably best to acknowledge the strangeness and work in accord, effectively combining powers, working together to restore sanity and peace to this mad world.
Or you could just ask your look-alike to take a photo with you to post on your respective social media platforms, sharing and commemorating the strangeness of standing next to someone who looks almost exactly like you. Or you could invite him or her to watch the incredible movie Twins starring Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger (for obvious reasons). If you do approach your doppelganger in a real life interaction, be sure to initiate the conversation by saying "will you be the Mary-Kate to my Ashley?" or vice versa. Or you could just walk by and be like, "yo, that dude kind of looks like me" to one of your friends. There's really no wrong answer, this isn't a word problem. But now that I've proofed what I've written it does kind of read like one.
Whatever, the point is, everyone has someone that looks weirdly like them, even super famous celebrities. This list of 10 famous look-alikes will have you scratching your head and doing double takes.

5 Ellen DeGeneres and Edie Falco
Comedian Ellen DeGeneres has held down her daytime talk show slot since 2003, becoming a TV fixture in the process. DeGeneres looks a lot like Edie Falco. Falco is a Brooklyn-born actress who has played pivotal roles in some of cable TV's most celebrated shows. Her stellar TV run began with her role as Diane Whittlesey in HBO's prison-based OZ. She followed that performance with her role as Carmela Soprano on HBO's The Sopranos, arguably the best show ever on the airwaves. She then continued her success on premium cable shows by starring as the title role on Showtime's Nurse Jackie.
4 Hilary Swank and Jennifer Garner
3 Amber Heard and Scarlett Johansson
2 Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly
1 Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester
Minka Kelly is a gorgeous American actress who has starred in a variety of films. From lighter fare in 500 Days of Summer to horror in The Roommate to full-on award contender, playing Jackie Kennedy in Lee Daniels' The Butler. Kelly has begun to demonstrate her serious acting chops, proving herself as more than just a pretty face. Her doppelganger is actually her co-star from The Roommate, Leighton Meester. Meester has also had a variety of acting gigs: from teen soap Gossip Girl to Adam Sandler's campy That's My Boy to starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway. Both of these gorgeous women have incredibly bright careers ahead of them, now if we could only tell them apart.
