People on the internet and social media across the world are starting to go insane after a few people started to notice something very strange about two actresses. We both know Millie Bobby Brown and Natalie Portman as two great actresses. One is very established in Hollywood, while the other is just starting to make name for herself with incredible performances in the hit show Stranger Things. But what you probably didn't know is that both these actresses are pretty much identical. No one even noticed until a few people on Twitter and other social media platforms started to point it out. Millie Bobby Brown is setting the world on fire with her precocious attitude and her enviable style. The fact that she is only 13 but is already so stylish and self-assured is crazy to many people.
When people started to realize the many similarities between the two actresses, they started to freak out. Twitter and the internet were inundated with people comparing pictures of the two stars, pointing out how similar they looked, and demanding answers. Pretty soon, we're going to be hearing a lot of conspiracy theories about how these two actresses are actually clones, or somehow related, and so on. While the two are very much alike, these theories seem like a bit of a stretch. But what do you think? Is this just the internet overreacting, or is there genuinely something weird about all of this? Here are 15 photos that prove that Millie Bobby Brown's style is very similar to that of Natalie Portman.
15 They Have The Same Smile And Hair Color
As you can see, the two stars are very much alike. It's no wonder why so many people are freaking out on Twitter and all over the web, because these two actresses share some very pointed similarities. Of course, there's the fact that they're both actors, but there's also the fact that both of them have very similar smiles. Looking at these two pictures, their lips look almost identical! But their sense of style is also pretty similar.
Speaking about her love of French fashion, Portman revealed, "There's this innate chic that French women have; they just know how to tie their scarf right, the right length of the pants with the shoes. Makeup is very minimal. And the hair has that slept-in look, like you got a blow-dry three days ago. I'm slowly trying to pick it up." Clearly Millie is thinking the same, as she and Natalie have very similar hair. Perhaps Millie is getting inspiration from her.
14 They Were Both Stylish And Precocious Young Women
The similarities between the two actresses are even more insane when you rewind the years to when both of them were young. Obviously, Natalie Portman is much older than Millie Bobby Brown, but if we compare two images of them at the same age, a lot is revealed. Both these actresses started off their careers very young, as most actors do. They were both child actors, and it can be argued that Millie Bobbie Brown is still a child actor, although she's definitely growing up fast. She is extremely precocious, like Nat once was.
Looking at these two pictures, they definitely look as though they could be sisters, or even twins. Their hair in particular is so similar, and they seem to like the same hairstyles. Being a child actor was tough for both of these young actresses, and they've both spoken out about the impact it has had on their lives.
13 They Have Similar Hairstyles
We just touched on the fact that these two actresses have very similar hairstyles, but this image probably highlights that fact better than any other picture on the web. Virtually everything about their hair is the same. It's exactly the same shade of brown, and it has the same glossy sheen. The two actresses also seem to style their hair in very similar ways, and in this case it seems as though they went to the same hairdresser! It's interesting to note that while both of these actresses have straight hair in this picture, you can also see their hair get curlier on other occasions.
And who could forget the moment when Natalie Portman shaved her head for V For Vendetta? Speaking about her baldness, Portman revealed, "Feeling the rain on my bald head was incredible. But the worst was growing it out. Being a girl with short Little Orphan Annie curls was not fun for me."
12 They Both Love To Have Fun With Their Style
We've already seen pictures of both these girls when they were very young, but this one just adds more fuel to the flame. People are now looking at pictures like these and losing their mind over how similar the two girls actually are. It's not just that they have the exact same expression on their faces – it's the fact that they even seem to exude the same personality. As you can see, there is something very similar about these two actresses. Clearly they are both fun-loving, and that is reflected in their style.
Speaking about her time growing up, Portman revealed the benefits of being an only child: "I had the sole attention of my parents. And you know what? If I had had brothers or sisters I would have never become an actress. My mother has accompanied me to every audition and every acting class. With more children that would have never been possible. They would have been jealous of me.”
11 They Both Play With Tomboy Style
Here's another set of two pictures featuring Natalie Portman and Millie Bobby Brown, and it's really hard to even recognize who is who! Both actresses are again very young, but the most noticeable feature about both of them is that they look simply charming. It's clear that their eyes are the biggest factor when it comes to making both girls look totally cute, and that's yet another similarity to note. Although both are clearly very adorable, they love to play with more tomboyish looks, and they make it look super cool.
And both actresses have experienced the strange, hectic lifestyle of being a child actor. Millie Bobby Brown once revealed, "I live on an airplane. I don’t really live anywhere at the moment. I lived in L.A. for a while and I kind of live in L.A. now. I live in England to do stuff, I lived in Atlanta … I could possibly be moving back there, so I kind of live everywhere, but my favorite place to live is L.A.
10 They Rock Braids
It's already been mentioned that the two actresses not only look similar physically, but also seem to have identical senses of style. Both actresses seem to prefer black, and wear clothing that is extremely stylish and fashionable. But when you look at their hairstyles, you really get a sense that these two actresses have very similar mindsets when it comes to fashion and looks. Both women seem to love braiding their hair, which makes them look even more similar.
Natalie Portman revealed that she doesn't really have much time for stylish alterations anymore, saying, "Manicures are the first thing to go; it's hard to justify spending an hour a week on that when you've got work, a child, a husband, and friends. Also, I have difficult, curly hair, so I either blow-dry it after my kid goes to bed, or sleep on it wet. Then it isn't as wild the next day."
9 They Both Rock A Shaved Head
Interestingly enough, both actresses have shaved their heads for roles. Natalie Portman shaved hers for V For Vendetta, and Millie Bobby Brown of course buzzed hers for Stranger Things. And when you remove their hair, it becomes even more obvious how similar these two actresses look. They definitely look like they're related!
Speaking about shaving her head, Millie Bobby Brown revealed, “The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life. The last strand of hair cut off was the moment my whole face was on show and I couldn’t hide behind my hair like I used to. I miss my shaved head. Shaving your head is so empowering. You don’t need hair to be beautiful. You are beautiful with or without. I learned that too.”
8 Their Soft Makeup Highlights Their Similar Bone Structure
When these two actresses strut out onto the red carpet, they simply dazzle. Portman is no stranger to red carpet events, but Millie Bobby Brown is just starting to get used to it. In both cases, photographers do an amazing job of highlighting their natural beauty, and their incredible bone structure is on full display. It's clear that both women not only have a very defined bone structure, but their cheek bones, noses, and jawlines are very similar.
Millie loves red carpet events, because it means that she can meet some huge stars! She revealed, "I got to meet a lot of people: I got to meet [Maddie Ziegler,] I got to meet James Corden and John Travolta. It’s really fun and a little overwhelming but in a really good way. I get to go to these events that are really fun. It’s all very new to me so I’m very grateful because not many kids or even adults get to do this."
7 They Both Love Natural Brows
Here's another picture of the two actresses posing on the red carpet, and this shows an even more obvious similarity between the two actresses. While it's true that Portman is wearing a very different style of dress with a very different hairstyle, it's still easy to see that the faces of the two actresses are incredibly similar. In this photo, you can definitely see that their eyebrows are virtually identical. They both prefer a natural look and don't tweeze them too much.
Natalie Portman has learned that fame has its downsides, especially when it comes to finding out who your friends really are. She revealed, "I wouldn’t hang around a person just because they were in a movie. If they’re really like a [jerk] I wouldn’t be friends with them, you know? And you can tell when someone likes you just because you’re in a movie, because all they talk about is the movie, and all they talk about is the movie business."
6 Their Red Carpet Style Includes Lots Of Black And Smoky Eyes
Even though Natalie Portman And Millie Bobby Brown are clearly on two different sides of the age spectrum here, they both seem to have very similar faces. Just look at their cheek bones! It almost looks as if Millie Bobby Brown is the young version of Natalie Portman, and this is a "before and after" picture. Portman looks like she could be Millie's mom! And as you can see, people on Twitter are losing their minds over this. Their love of smoky eye makeup looks and classic black dresses is making this similarity even more apparent!
Millie loves meeting celebrities, and she once revealed the best piece of advice she ever received from a celeb: "David Schwimmer was just like, 'You need to love what you do.' And I think that’s really nice. Just love your work. My family has given me great advice saying, you know, 'Don’t work too hard.' And it’s really nice to have someone like that — you know that they love you. It’s nice to have famous people love you."
5 They Share A Love For Funky Hairstyles
After seeing all of these images so far, you're probably starting to understand why so many people are making a huge deal out of this. There really is a huge, noticeable similarity between these two actresses, and that's why so many people are starting to freak out. Some are tweeting things like, "I need answers!" Are they suggesting there could be some kind of reason behind this, and it might not be just a coincidence? How could this be? Just wait, and I'm sure we'll start to hear all kinds of conspiracy theories about why these two actresses look so alike. Their love of cool and funky hairstyles is also making them look really similar!
One thing is for sure, though, is that they both know what it's like to experience fame. Portman once said, "People don't understand what fame is until they live it and it's a very different experience of course than what it seems like from the outside."
4 They Go For Simple Red Carpet Looks
Could they be clones? That's probably what some of the conspiracy theorists are going to start saying about the eerie similarity between these two actors, and you can hardly blame them. Pictures like these just leave people scratching their heads. They do say that everyone in the world has a "doppelgänger," someone who looks identical to you. But to have both these people make it in the film business? Now that's a very weird coincidence. This is enhanced by the fact that they both love a simple but elegant red carpet look.
Portman has some great advice for anyone trying to make it big these days: "Someone was saying recently, think about what you love when you’re 11. Adults who are feeling lost, try and regain that. That’s when I started. I feel that there is something around that time where you do have an instinct about what you really love."
3 They Both Rock Short Boyish Hairstyles
Another theory that is probably going to get thrown around here is whether these two women are actually related. You never know, it could be true. And these two actresses probably wouldn't even be aware of it. It's true that we're all related to each other in some way or another. But could they be 20th cousins or something? Maybe. What's clear is that this image shows a very marked similarity between the two actresses. They both pull off the short hair very well.
Their love for acting is another thing that makes them similar. Millie once spoke of her obsession with acting, saying, “It was like a bug. I know this sounds crazy, but once I find something I want to do, nobody’s stopping me. If I don’t know how to sew, and I really had that passion to sew, that’s it, I’m going to sew. That’s also with acting. So here I am. I felt at one point I couldn’t do it [any more], but then I got [Stranger Things] and everything changed.”
2 They Both Know How To Dress Their Petite Frame
We've already gone over the fact that both these women look extremely similar when it comes to their face. That much is undeniable. But what about their height? Funnily enough, they are both 5'3", exactly. But, you have to consider the fact that Millie is still only 13 years old, and might grow much taller. But right now, the two women seem to have very similar frames, as well as faces.
Speaking about how she keeps fit, Portman revealed that she does not limit herself when it comes to eating: "I like pleasure, I like joy. I'd never get to the point where I would starve or injure myself... I'm the opposite — when I'm hungry, I eat, and I always make sure I'm eating something delicious. I cook a lot, and I even do vegan baking." Both women may be short and petite, but they know how to dress themselves to their advantage.
1 They're Both Playful With Their Style And With Their Work
And if you still aren't convinced about the similarities between these two very talented actresses, just take a look at these two pictures. These pictures were taken right at the moment when Millie Bobby Brown and Natalie Portman started to laugh, and you can really see the likeness here. A person's true personality shines through when their face lights up with joy, and it's clear to see that these two actresses not only look very similar, but also behave in ways that look almost identical.
What's clear is that both women are probably going to be very successful in the coming years. Portman is already a very established actress with years of great roles ahead of her. And if people are already comparing Millie Bobby Brown to a legend like Portman, she's got some great years ahead of her for sure. Let's face it; being compared to a beautiful actress like Natalie Portman is never a bad thing.
