When it comes to describing a couple that truly looks good together, there doesn't seem to be one exact guideline. The popular adage of opposites attract can be quite appealing in a couple, but having them look alike to the point where they could almost be related is also quite sweet in its own way. The "opposites attract" motif can be a great way to combine two Hollywood personas that may not seem like they would work well together but then it can create a frenzy by the public. This was definitely the case when Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz filmed Vanilla Sky with one another and people couldn't help but remark on the fact that her name would remain the same (in sound) if the two were married. With Cruise looking like the all-American boy and Cruz being the epitome of exotic beauty, the public just ate up their romance with a spoon. Yet, once he started dating Katie Holmes, the world started to fall in love with the fact that these two looked so similar that they could pass for brother and sister.
While there doesn't seem to be a set guideline for what makes the perfect couple in Hollywood, there does seem to be an inordinate number of couples that could pass themselves off as siblings. From similar profiles to the exact same facial features, some of these couples might astound you. Check out our list of the 15 celeb couples who look so much alike, they could be related, and see if your favorite Hollywood couple made the list.
15 Tom Brady And Gisele Bundchen
Tom Brady is one of the most celebrated quarterbacks in professional football and he's also been described as incredibly good looking. From his tall stature to his chiseled features, it shouldn't be surprising that he'd land a gorgeous supermodel like Gisele Bundchen. The two ultimately made it down the aisle and have started a family together that constantly look like they belong in a J. Crew catalog. They are seen as Hollywood royalty and the dream couple that everyone else aspires to be, even though neither of them are actually actors. Brady did have a cameo in Entourage since they wanted to play up the fact that he has a number of celebrity friends and he even referenced Gisele's uncanny ability to cook. It seems like this is the perfect couple and from the look of their bone structure, it seems like they both have the same sort of physical appeal that could make people think that they are somehow related.
14 Zayn Malik And Gigi Hadid
When Gigi Hadid was first introduced as the daughter of Yolanda Foster on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the public was already getting a front row seat to her burgeoning modeling career. It wasn't long before she was starting to be named one of the hottest young supermodels on the planet and her relationship with Zayn Malik only amplified her status in the limelight. Malik was once a favorite member of the boy band group One Direction, but has started his own breakout career. Having one of the hottest supermodels on his arm is definitely a boost to his professional career but many believe that their romance is more than just mutual convenience. With both of them having supermodel looks, it's interesting how similar they look with one another and how easily they could be mistaken for siblings.
13 Jacqui Ainsley And Guy Ritchie
The union between Madonna and Guy Ritchie seemed to work out pretty well for quite some time since they created a wonderful family together. Yet, they didn't remain in wedded bliss for too long and they ultimately went through a nasty divorce and a bitter custody battle. The public (and even the kids) started choosing sides and it wasn't long before some details about their wedded life were leaked to the press. Ritchie ultimately moved on and married Jacqui Ainsley, which seems like a much better fit. The two have been photographed multiple times on the red carpet and they have even posed together with his kids from his previous marriage. Seeing the two together, people couldn't help but remark on how both of them have prominent noses and an understated mouth.
12 Courtney Mazza And Mario Lopez
Mario Lopez is thought of as one of the most beloved and celebrated television personalities on the small screen. People still remember him as A.C. Slater from the '90s sitcom Saved by the Bell, and it's phenomenal how well his looks have stood up to the test of time. He still has those signature dimples and he's considered to be a huge catch. While he had some tumultuous times with previous relationships, he seemed to find a winner once he began a romance with Courtney Mazza. The two were married and ultimately started a family with one another. They consistently make the list for the most beautiful families in Hollywood and are quite often photographed on the red carpet with all of their kids in tow. While she doesn't exactly have the same signature dimples as Lopez, she does have the same sultry dark hair and the cheekbones that accentuate her beautiful smile.
11 Keith Urban And Nicole Kidman
While the world seemed content with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman as a married couple, their eventual split caused people to look at their relationship in a completely different way. In hindsight, they didn't exactly seem like the best-fitting couple and the world is far happier with her union with Keith Urban. Both of these celebrities hail from Australia and they used this commonality to help get acquainted with one another upon first meeting. While Kidman is decidedly paler compared to Urban's sun-kissed look, it's interesting how similar their facial features are with one another. They both have a prominent bridge to their nose, they both have a strong forehead and they both have cheekbones that seem to make their smiles completely pop.
10 Leighton Meester And Adam Brody
Although Leighton Meester is extremely well known for her TV role on Gossip Girl, she's appeared in a number of films where she's proven her immense talent. From starring alongside Gwyneth Paltrow in Country Strong to her small role in The Judge, she's definitely more than just a pretty face in Hollywood. Adam Brody is an actor that has had quite a similar career since he's known for TV roles on The O.C. and Gilmore Girls but has also starred in some noteworthy films on the big screen. Yet, they have far more similarities than just the trajectory of their careers. Seeing this happy couple out and about has caused many people to look at them with a more in-depth critique. It's incredibly striking how similar their noses are in the shape of the bridge, both of their eyes seem to point down in the corners and even their lips seem to have the same shape.
9 Alexis Bledel And Vincent Kartheiser
Alexis Bledel is known for her baby-face looks and striking ability to transform into any character she's portrayed on either the small or big screen. Yet, her fans truly loved seeing her in the hit television series Mad Men. She actually had the chance to film with her husband, Vincent Kartheiser, and the two had some steamy scenes together. Neither one of them had truly likeable characters on the show but somehow, the fans rooted for their love because of the fact that they're married in real life. Beyond their connection in their professional and personal lives, it's interesting to see how much these two resemble one another. From the same sparkling shade of blue in their eyes to the understated smile and porcelain skin tone, these two look like the perfect couple that just so happened to look like siblings.
8 Alex Rodriguez And Jennifer Lopez
Alex Rodriguez is a former professional baseball player of Dominican-American descent. He is currently a huge favorite as a sports commentator and he's also made headlines for dating the superstar, Jennifer Lopez. Although Lopez is of Puerto Rican descent, that hasn't stopped these two from finding romantic bliss in one another's arms. Lopez has been romantically-linked to a number of men, including her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. While he's definitely known for having swagger and a certain appeal, he isn't exactly seen as the most attractive man in the world. On the other hand, Rodriguez has consistently been named as one of the hottest men in baseball and his pairing with J. Lo seems like something that was truly meant to be. It's undeniable that the two have similar personas and they also have similar facial traits to make them look oddly alike.
7 LeAnn Rimes And Eddie Cibrian
When LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian first met on the set of the Lifetime film Northern Lights, both of them were already married to other people. Yet, that didn't stop them from taking their romance off the screen and into reality. They both divorced their partners and ultimately got married. Yet, it hasn't been easy for this couple. The public has really let them have it because of the torrid affair they had when they were both already married and Cibrian's ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, never lets the world forget that her husband cheated and that he married his mistress. However, Rimes and Cibrian haven't let the naysayers come between them and they even tried their hand at reality TV to turn everyone's minds around. While people may not agree on whether or not these two deserve a fairytale ending, they definitely agree on how closely these two resemble one another.
6 Ryan Reynolds And Blake Lively
When Ryan Reynolds split from his wife in 2011, the public wondered who could possibly follow in the footsteps of the beautiful, Scarlett Johansson. Yet, Reynolds proved that people do seem to get second chances in love when he married Blake Lively in 2012. Lively had previously only been thought of as a television actress but has since transitioned to the big screen with hit films like The Age of Adaline and The Shallows. The couple has two children together and yet they still seem just as infatuated with one another as they were when they first started dating. Both of them look like they have found their soulmate and they also share a number of the same facial attributes.
5 Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel
When Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears split, the world was crushed with the idea that their two favorite pop stars weren't going to make it down the aisle. While Spears seemed to move on quickly and bounce around from one relationship to the next, Timberlake was a bit more discrete with his romances. When he married Jessica Biel, the public was a tad shocked since it didn't seem like these two had much in common. She was known as a television actress that was trying to make a name for herself on the big screen and he was seen as a pop star with the over-the-top personality. Yet, their opposites seemed to work out perfectly for one another and the couple has welcomed two children into the world. Although they may have differences in their personas and careers, they have a striking number of similarities in their looks.
4 Benedict Cumberbatch And Sophie Hunter
Benedict Cumberbatch is a British actor that has become hugely popular with American audiences in recent years. It seems like he's constantly receiving awards for his film portrayals and people have completely fallen in love with his portrayal of the legendary Sherlock Holmes on the BBC series Sherlock. While he may not have the BeyHive, he does have quite a devoted group of fans that have coined the nickname "Cumberb****es." He married Sophie Hunter, the acclaimed opera director and playwright, in 2015 and people couldn't help but remark on how much they look alike. Both of them have an oval-shaped face and both of them have a pronounced nose. Their mouths are also quite similarly shaped and even their smile seems to correlate with one another when they're on the red carpet.
3 Chloë Grace Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham
Brooklyn Beckham is the son of Victoria and David Beckham and that pretty much says it all. He's known for being incredibly handsome and having impeccable fashion sense and is considered royalty in young Hollywood. He's been surrounded by celebrities all of his life and it's only fitting that he should become romantically-linked to the famed actress, Chloë Grace Moretz. The two have been photographed since 2014, but there seems to be an endless number of tabloids throughout these many years that have reported on their breakups and reunions. Whatever their official relationship status may be currently, the public seems to be rooting for this couple. Chloë Grace Moretz isn't known for being part of the wild young Hollywood crowd and it seems like the two are well-suited for one another. If you didn't recognize these two in the street, you might think it's just a brother and sister hanging out.
2 Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux
When Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt finalized their divorce, the public couldn't wait for her to finally find her Prince Charming. She went through a number of high profile romances during her dating years but it was Justin Theroux that finally got her to walk down the aisle. The two have constantly had to fight the tabloid headlines throughout their time together. There was criticism over how long their engagement was before getting married, criticism regarding their low-key wedding and then criticism over their lack of children. It seems like every other day there is a news story about their pending breakup and people are wondering whether or not this couple will even last. Yet, there's one thing that everyone can agree on and that is how similar their facial features are with one another.
1 Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard
In the world of Hollywood, there aren't many celebrity couples that the world roots for because of the intense amount of skepticism that the public has regarding finding love amongst the glitz and glamour. Yet, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have managed to thaw even the most skeptic hearts. The couple has become even more endearing due to their hugely popular Samsung ad campaign and people just can't get enough of seeing them in their matching sweaters or dealing with the same mundane home problems as the rest of the world. While they're definitely a good looking couple, it's interesting how similar they look with their facial features. Both of their smiles seem to turn up a bit on the upper lip and they have the same sort of profile.
