Celebrity Doppelgangers: Celebs Who Look Alike But Aren’t Related
These celebs will have you doing a double-take.
There are many celebrity mother-daughter duos who could pass for twins, and famous siblings who share a definite likeness. What’s more surprising is the number of celebrities who look alike but don’t share genes. Some pairs of celebs look like twins but in fact are not related at all!
Take a look below at some famous faces that will have you seeing double.
Meghan Markle & Joanna Gaines
One sparkles with her new royal title and the other makes interiors sparkle, but Prince Harry’s new wife and the star of “Fixer Upper” both share an uncanny resemblance — down to the freckles! They’re also often photographed smiling ear to ear and are each applauded for their impeccable personal style.
Bella Hadid & Jennifer Lawrence
While Bella Hadid rocks the catwalk and Jennifer Lawrence wows on screen, they honestly could swap places and we might not even notice, especially when J-Law is a brunette. Their sweetheart lips, intense gazes and slim noses make them practically identical.
Zach Braff & Dax Shepard
These two funny men were both born in 1975. Though they look like twins, with similar rugged good looks, they actually grew up thousands of miles apart and aren’t related but have become friends over the years.
John Mayer & Antoni Porowski
Gus Kenworthy & Richard Madden
Richard Madden, a Scottish actor known for his role as Rob Stark in “Game of Thrones,” could easily be mistaken for American Olympic freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy. From their wavy hair to the scruff along their jawlines, these two could be brothers.
Tiffani Thiessen & Alexandra Daddario
Thiesen, 44, may have gotten her start on “Saved by the Bell” when Daddario, 32, was just a kid, but the two actresses could be mistaken for sisters now. The raven-haired actresses both have piercing blue eyes, as well as English and German roots.
Ed Sheeran & Prince Harry
It’s not just their shared red hair that makes Grammy winner Ed Sheeran a royal lookalike. Meghan would probably notice the difference, but their scruffy beards, blue eyes and English accents make them nearly identical.
Ed Sheeran & Rupert Grint
Margot Robbie & Jaime Pressly
With bright blue eyes, blonde hair and arched brows, “I, Tonya” star Margot Robbie and “My Name is Earl’s” Jaime Pressly are practically twins. However, Robbie hails from Australia and Pressly grew up in North Carolina, so the likeness is apparently a complete coincidence.
Alicia Silverstone & Kristen Stewart
The roles that made each actress famous couldn’t be more different, Silverstone as the bubbly Cher in “Clueless” and Stewart as brooding Bella in the “Twilight” films. However, their petite features and facial expressions are so similar they could be sisters.
Leighton Meester & Minka Kelly
Both brunette actresses have sunny highlights and big brown doe eyes. They even played college co-eds who shared a room in the 2011 thriller “The Roommate,” though Meester is better known for “Gossip Girl” and Kelly for movies like “Just Go With It.”
Jessica Chastain & Bryce Dallas Howard
These redheaded actresses share more than a striking natural hair color and porcelain skin. They both starred in “The Help” and have us seeing double today.
Millie Bobby Brown & Natalie Portman
Amy Adams & Isla Fisher
They may not share the same eye color, but the auburn-haired actresses have few other distinctions. From their sculpted eyebrows down to their bone structure they look eerily alike. Even other A-listers have mistaken Fisher for Adams.
Henry Cavill & Matt Bomer
Julie Bowen & Elizabeth Banks
Katy Perry & Zooey Deschanel
When Katy Perry opts for dark brunette locks, the singer and “American Idol” judge is a dead ringer for Zooey Deschanel. Both the pop star and “New Girl” actress share light eyes and nearly identical noses.
Nina Dobrev & Victoria Justice
Though they don’t share common ancestry (“The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev is Bulgarian and “Zoey 101’s” Victoria Justice is part Puerto Rican from Florida), the two young actresses bear an uncanny resemblance.
Mila Kunis & Sarah Hyland
Mila Kunis is best known for her work in movies like “Black Swan” and “Bad Moms,” and Sarah Hyland for her hilarious role as Haley Dunphy on “Modern Family.” As varied as their filmographies may be, these actresses could easily pass for sisters.
Mick Jagger & Harry Styles
Despite the 50 year age difference, if you look closely, you can see the resemblance between these two British musicians. Perhaps the One Direction singer-songwriter can get a glimpse of his future by looking at the legendary Rolling Stones frontman.
Taylor Swift & Avicii
Taylor Swift herself thought she could be related to Avicii, the late superstar DJ whose real name was Tim Bergling, after seeing side-by-side photos of the pair. They both were born in 1989 and had a knack for mesmerizing crowds with their musical talents.
Thandie Newton & Zoe Saldana
Except when Zoe Saldana dons a blue hue for “Avatar,” she and “Westworld” actress Thandie Newton look so much alike they could be sisters. However, Newton was born in London, with British and Zimbabwean ancestry, and Saldana is from the States with Dominican and Puerto Rican roots.
Blake Lively & Melissa Benoist
Beyonce & Tyra Banks
Both of these beauties are larger than life and have no Earthly equal, but they do have some very similar facial features and stellar “smizing” skills. When their eye makeup is similar, they might as well be twins!
Nicole Scherzinger & Kim Kardashian West
From high cheekbones to perfectly pouty lips and olive skin, the Pussycat Dolls singer looks like she could be a long-lost member of the Kardashian clan.
So, which pair do you think looks the most alike?
