While every celebrity wants to be unique, some are almost interchangeable, at least when it comes to their polished looks. Whether it’s natural bone structure or the power of makeup, these celebrities could pass for one another even if you don’t squint your eyes.
From the striking resemblance between Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel to uncanny look-alikes Victoria Justice and Nina Dobrev, see a few celebrities who look alike.
Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry
When Katy Perry is sporting dark hair, nobody can ignore the major resemblance to Zooey Deschanel.
The pop star and quirky actress couldn’t be more different when it comes to their line of work and personality, but they could easily play sisters.
Will Ferrell and Chad Smith
Some celebrities who look alike have a sense of humour about it. Actor Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chilli Peppers drummer Chad Smith appeared together on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” dressed exactly the same. The two even had a “drum-off”, where Ferrell couldn’t keep up with the professional musician, ending up playing the cowbell much better than the drums.
Jaime Pressly and Margot Robbie
Known for her role in “The Wolf of Wall Street”, 23-year old Australian actress Margot Robbie has the same bone and cheek structure as 36-year old Jaime Pressly. For celebrities who look alike, these two could undoubtedly impersonate each other with the right makeup.
Thandie Newton and Zoe Saldana
The 41 year old English actress and the 36 year old star of “Avatar” and “Star Trek” actress share more than a few features. With similar makeup and hair, they might even be able to pass for twins, at least for people who don’t know them personally.
Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard
There’s a 4 year age gap between Jessica Chastain (37) and Bryce Dallas Howard (33), one lives in New York and the other in Los Angeles, but when it comes to celebrities who look alike, they both share the same ginger hair and skin tone, along with many other bone structure similarities.
Dane Cook and Skylar Astin
The veteran comedian should watch out! The 26 year old actor known for his work in “Pitch Perfect” and the TBS sitcom “Ground Floor” has similar interests in comedy and is 16 years younger. Who would you pick between the two for a comedic role when auditions are held for a “Dane Cook type”?
Victoria Justice and Nina Dobrev
Actress and singer Victoria Justice is all too familiar with the curse of celebrities who look alike. Asked by Huffington Post if she’s even been mistaken for “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev, she explained that she actually finds it flattering: “It’s been happening forever! She’s so pretty, so it’s very nice to be able to say that! I get the Nina thing a lot!”
Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer
The star of “Man of Steel” and actor Matt Bomer also share many similar features. If the new Superman movie needs a Bizarro World version of the superhero, Bomer could easily step in.
Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly
Few celebrities who look alike have actually been in the same movie, but Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly share more than a few facial features, they also starred together in the 2011 thriller “The Roommate”, in which Leighton goes all “Single White Female” on Minka’s character.
Blake Lively and Kesha
While a popular meme claims that Kesha and John Travolta are exact look-alikes, the singer shares more features with actress Blake Lively, at least when she’s wearing professional makeup.
Tom Hardy and Logan Marshall-Green
You have to wonder if the casting call for “Prometheus” featured a “Tom Hardy type” for the role of Charlie. Logan Marshall-Green is one year older than English actor Tom Hardy, and when they’re at the same weight, they definitely deserve a place among celebrities who look alike.
Michelle Williams and Carey Mulligan
“The Great Gatsby” star Carey Mulligan is 5 years younger than Australian actress Michelle Williams, but they’re definitely destined to play sisters. Since Carey was born in London, they could definitely find common ground when it comes to accents.
Drea de Matteo and Portia de Rossi
“The Sopranos” star Drea de Matteo shares more than a name similarity with Portia de Rossi. They were also both born in January, a single year apart, and are among the celebrities who could be twins.
