40 Celebrity Lookalikes That Will Leave You Scratching Your Head
With the billions of people in the world, it is inevitable that some of us are going to have similar faces and features. Here are forty celebrities and their doppelgangers!
40. Brad Pitt
“What do you see when you look at this picture?” is what Hermann Rorschach would ask you right now. Our answer? Brad Pitt and his much older, Swiss doppelganger.
39. Orlando Bloom
This is hunky actor Orlando Bloom and his lookalike Nicolae Grigorescu – a prominent figure in establishing modern Romanian painting. Pretty eerie!
38. Sylvester Stallone
Most people know Stallone for his breakout role in Rocky, but some of you may know him as the man on the left – Pope Gregory IX.
37. Macaulay Culkin
A young Vladimir Putin next to Macaulay Culkin. I mean, they have both worked with Donald Trump.
36. Queen Latifah
Zora Neale Hurston wrote the famous story Their Eyes Were Watching God, sure does look familiar. Oh wait! She looks freakishly like Queen Latifah.
35. Leonardo DiCaprio
By day, Leo DiCaprio is the talented heartthrob men want to be and women want to be with. He also moonlights as an elementary school student from 1962. What a range!
34. Ellen Degeneres
This one is freaky and funny. Comedian Ellen Degeneres looks an awful lot like Henry David Thoreau. They have to be related!
This Jay-Z doppelganger was spotted at the New York Public Library by redditor jdym00. The photo was taken in the 30s… could Jay-Z actually be in the illuminati? It would explain the time traveling.
32. Charlie Sheen
On our left we have Charlie Sheen. On our right we have John Brown. One is a good actor who loves cocaine; the other led a slave rebellion raid on Harper’s Ferry. Both equally talented, obviously.
31. Chuck Norris
Now this is a good one! I have always thought that van Gogh’s portraits looked an awful lot like the most powerful man in the world, Chuck Norris.
30. Matthew McConaughey
Alright, alright, alright. Redditor EmberRainbow posted this photo of her great-grandfather, who looks so much like McConaughey, it’s uncanny!
29. Jimmy Kimmel
On the right we have Jimmy Kimmel, and on the left we have the love child of Jimmy Kimmel and the Bride of Frankenstein. Yikes!
28. Jack Black
“Climb upon my faithful steed; then we’re gonna ride, gonna smoke some weed” – Jack Black
Both ride horses? Check. Both making the same pose? Check. Intense gaze? Check. Paul Revere and Jack Black must be the same person.
27. Michael Jackson
Wow. Who knew Dutch painter Barent Fabritius looked just like Thriller-era Michael Jackson? This is uncanny!
26. John Travolta
The photo on the left is allegedly a photo of John Travolta pre-reincarnation taken in the 1860s. Maybe he is, and those scientologists aren’t so far off!
25. Alec Baldwin
Alec Baldwin may be known for portraying an orange president on SNL, but he should be portraying 13th President, Millard Fillmore. They look quite similar!
24. Matt Damon
This is another redditor-submitted post. User coffeeandtrout posted this photo of their parents’ wedding day in 1961. Wait a minute…
23. Paul Giamatti
Incredible actor Paul Giamatti has played a number of historical figures. We want to see him play famed playwright William Shakespeare. They two look very much alike!
22. Shia LeBeouf
While there may be some similarities between Shia LeBeouf and Albert Einstein, this one is kind of a stretch, physically and intellectually!
21. Peter Dinklage
Fun fact: Before Peter Dinklage became a successful actor; he was a Spanish painter who went by the name of Diego Velazquez.
20. Justin Timberlake
The photo on the left is a mugshot from the 1800s. He might’ve gone to jail, but he didn’t go bye bye bye. He is still singing and dancing in our hearts to this very day.
19. Keanu Reeves
Before Keanu Reeves became America’s acting star and sweetheart, he was actor Paul Mounet. He also had much fluffier hair. We like the new look better!
18. Johnny Depp
Redditor mjwstone14 posted this picture of her grandfather, who looks freakishly like a bathed and groomed version of Johnny Depp.
17. Jennifer Lawrence
We do not believe that these are not both photos of Jennifer Lawrence! The similarities between her and Egyptian actress Zubaida Tharwat are uncanny!
16. Nicholas Cage
This man on the right is Confederate Army soldier Lt. Robert M. Smith. We do not know much about him except that he looks freakishly like Nicholas Cage!
15. Mark Zuckerberg
We wonder if this portrait painted by Diego Velazquez will get tagged as Zuckerberg on Facebook.
14. Conan O’Brian
Here is yet another celebrity who fought in the Civil War. The left picture is actually Civil War soldier turned senator Marshall Harvey Twitchell. Is Conan really that old?
13. Eddie Murphy
Funnyman Eddie Murphy played Ray Gibson in the movie Life. In real life, the two looked eerily similar – it’s no wonder they cast Murphy.
12. Robin Williams
Two geniuses, one face. On the left is comedic and acting genius Robin Williams. On the right is Russian zoologist and Nobel Prize winner Ilya Ilich Mechnikov. Very weird resemblance!
11. Jimmy Fallon
What do Turkish revolutionary Mahir Cayan have in common? The same face! Other than that, not too much. The resemblance between these two is absolutely uncanny!
10. Larry David
Historical abolitionist and women’s rights activist William Lloyd Garrison looks a lot like Seinfeld co-creator Larry David. However, Garrison made a career caring about important issues, while David made a career out of caring about literally nothing.
9. Maisie Williams
Before bursting onto the scene in HBO’s Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams was Reddit user Gamble_MK9’s grandmother in 1936. Does every celebrity have that Benjamin Button disease?
8. Dave Franco
A man was hanging out at his friend’s house when he saw this picture of his uncle – who looked really like Dave Franco. Look at how similar they are!
7. John Krasinski
Before showing us that he has comedy, drama, and action acting props, John Krasinski role-played as Carl Feilberg, an Australian journalist.
6. Maggie Gyllenhaal
Author Rose Wilder Lane (whose mother was Laura Ingalls Wilder) looks a lot like modern actor Maggie Gyllenhaal. Maybe they are related!
5. Adrien Brody
We can kind of see the resemblance between philosopher John Locke and Adrien Brody; but I’m sure Brody appreciates us aging him by 50 years!
4. Anne Hathaway
This portrait, painted in 1804 by de Goya is simply titled An Officer. However, this officer looks awfully familiar…
3. Steve Martin
Somebody found out that their great-grandmother was none other than famed comedian Steve Martin. Way cool!
2. George Carlin
On the left, we have scientist Charles Darwin; on the right, comedian George Carlin. Do they favor? Yes – however I’ve seen many sound guys and roadies who look just like this.
1. Tom HiddTom
This portrait of actor Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree looks an awfully lot like English actor Tom Hiddleston… could it be?
There you have them! Forty celebrity doppelgangers that will have you laughing or frightened!
