We love celebrities and celebrity gossip. We love seeing them make it big and we love it even more when they screw up and manage to lose it all. We also love finding people we know who look like a celebrity. But it gets a little freaky when a celebrity looks like another. There are some very close resemblances out there which makes us wonder if they are not in fact twins. Here are the 12 celebrity lookalikes with high degree of facial similarity.
12. Barry Pepper and Jimmy Shergill:
Barry Pepper is a Canadian actor famous for roles such as Private Daniel Jackson in Saving Private Ryan, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler in Battlefield Earth and Sergeant Michael Strank in Flags of Our Fathers. Barry looks a lot like bollywood actor Jimmy Shergill who has worked in multiple Hindi and Punjabi movies in India. Jimmy Shergill is recognized for his roles in Maachis, Mere Yaar ki Shaadi Hai and Mohabbatein.
11. Will Ferrell and Chad Smith:
The first time I saw a video of the Red Hot Chili Peppers I thought why is Will Ferrell playing the drums for them? I found out later that RHCP’s drummer is a different person called Chad Smith but he must be a twin separated at birth because he looks exactly like Will Ferrell. While Ferrell might be a more familiar face, Chad is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and one of the best drummers out there.
10. Kris Humphries and Taylor Lautner:
Kris Humphries of the Boston Celtics looks a lot like Taylor Lautner of Twilight. Both of them look the same, are athletic and have the same stupid grin that girls love for some reason. Kris was married to Kim Kardashian and Taylor is dating Marie Avgeropopoulos which gives them another thing in common; their bad taste in women.
9. Ed Sheeran and Rupert Grint:
Ed Sheeran became famous after his debut album “+” as an upcoming English singer songwriter. Rupert Grint has been immortalized as Ron from the Harry Potter series. Both ginger haired Brits look very similar. They both are of same height, almost same age and have the same shabby haircut. Even their stubble is the same. This led to Sheeran using Grint in his video for the song “Lego House”.
8. Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly:
Leighton Meester is an American actress and singer who became popular for her role in Gossip Girl. Minka Kelly made her name through Friday Night Lights. They both look a lot alike each other which must have been interesting when they both worked together in the 2011 movie The Roommate.
7. Ben Stiller and Kenny Florian:
Ben Stiller is loved by comedy fans for his roles in Zoolander, There’s Something About Mary, Meet the Parents and Night at the Museum series among many others. He looks a lot like Kenny Florian, the UFC fighter and now commentator. While Ben is famous for his comedy Kenny is famous for finishing his opponents in the octagon ring.
6. Jim Carrey and Rich Franklin:
Another comedian that looks a lot like a UFC fighter is Jim Carrey. He looks like Rich Franklin the former UFC middleweight champion. Rich has been nicknamed “Ace” in the MMA community because of his resemblance to Jim Carrey who played Ace Ventura in a couple of films. Joe Rogan even called him “evil Jim Carry”.
5. Russell Crowe and Ben McKenzie:
Ben McKenzie, the guy who played Ryan Atwood in the drama series OC, has been called a young Russell Crowe. The similarity between the two is uncanny and it seems like little Ben knows this as he tries to copy Russell Crowe’s acting style as well.
4. James Dean and James Franco:
James Dean has been an inspiration to many Hollywood actors and every now and then a new young actor is compared with James Dean. But no one looks more like James Dean than James Franco and that is why he played Dean in the biopic, “James Dean”. His role was appreciated by James Dean fans and there is no doubt that Franco is a good actor besides looking a lot like James Dean but the truth is that there was, and always will be, only one James Dean.
3. Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe:
Another pair of twins that aren’t, are Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe. Elijah immortalized the whinny character of Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings series and Daniel immortalized the whinny character of Harry Potter in that series. They both look so similar that sometimes it’s hard to tell if the movie that’s on is Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter. They both even played their characters in the same super annoying way.
2. Ronda Rousey and Julia Stiles:
These two feisty girls have to be twins. Even their voice and mannerisms match. Ronda Rousey is the first and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion. She has also won an Olympic gold medal and has a vicious arm bar that has managed to defeat every woman she has faced in the first round. Julia Stiles looks like her twin sister and the character she played in 10 Things I Hate About You should have been a UFC fighter.
1. Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry:
Any list of celebrity lookalikes will be incomplete without these two cute girls who look so much similar that it’s unbelievable they are not twins. While Katy Perry is a singer who likes to act, Zooey Deschanel is an actress who likes to sing. They both have a comic vibe and even their fashion styles are similar.
