17 Lookalike Celebrity Pairs Who Could Be Played By The Same Person

If you’re a human being who travels over the surface of the earth, you’ve given a lot of thought to the movie version of your life. What it would look like, how it would sound, who would play you…there are a lot of options to mull over while you’re slogging away on a treadmill at the gym.

And on that very same treadmill, when I’m already bored of the How I Met Your Mother rerun, my brain starts wondering if celebrities do the same thing. I mean, they’re just like us, right? So do they daydream about who will play them in the movie versions of their lives? I hope so.

But even if they don’t, there are some celebrities who look so goddamn similar that it’s a foregone conclusion that they’d play each other if they had to. Some of these people I’m about to roll out look so much alike that I get them confused to this day. They should be required to wear nametags and keep a resume on-hand so I can know which projects were them and which were their doppelganger. Is that too much to ask??

      You forgot Selena Gomez and Lucy Hale. Holy cow, do they look alike!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Oh I never thought of that one. I think I’d say Sarah Hyland looks more like Lucy Hale than Selena Gomez does, though. Thoughts?

      • yeah

        Sarah/Selena/Lucy/Mila all look pretty similar imo

    • Olivia Wilson

      This makes my brain hurt.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        You’re welcome!

      When I first saw Javier Bardem I was CONVINCED he was Jeffrey Dean Morgan. They look so much alike it’s stupid. Victoria Justice and Nina Dobrev is another pair.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Those two look so alike that I was convinced I’d caught IMDb in a lie and they didn’t realize Javier Bardem was in P.S. I Love You.

        And holy crap — yes to Victoria Justice and Nina Dobrev. I just didn’t know who Victoria was until I Googled her just now…

    • Lia Beck

      I think that girl from Modern Family also looks a lot like Mila Kunis.

      Okay, fine, I looked up her name. It’s Sarah Hyland.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Yes! Agreed. Just baby facier.
        (Don’t worry, it’s a word.)

      Natalie Portman and Kiera Knightley.

    • mouse

      Amber Valletta and Cameron Diaz. Seriously confusing.

    • Stephanie Stevens

      These were pretty good although there were a few I didn’t quite see the match up like Zoe Saldana and Thandie Newton, Leonardo and the other kid, and Lady Gaga vs Amy Winehouse, even with the dark hair I could totally not mix those two up.
