There are times when you mistake a total stranger for a friend. In case you were wondering, this does not make you a bad person! The truth is that there are many people in the world who look like someone else. It is a fairly common occurrence in real life, but this also takes place in Hollywood. Have you been confusing these actors and actresses in the past? If this is the case, there is no need to worry. After all, we are here to clear things up for you!
Javier Bardem And Jeffrey Dean Morgan
The former is a Spanish actor who bagged an Academy Award for his portrayal of Anton Chigurh in No Country for Old Men. Javier Bardem is also married to Penelope Cruz. On the other hand, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is best known for starring in Grey’s Anatomy, The Walking Dead, and Supernatural. It is an innocent mistake that is easy to make! The good news is that they have very different acting styles, so you can tell them apart based on that.
Emma Mackey And Margot Robbie
To clear it up for you, the woman on the left is Emma Mackey. The one on the right, on the other hand, is Margot Robbie. Even though the two of them have similar facial features, we are glad that it is easy to distinguish between them by their hair. Most of the time, Mackey is a brunette, while Robbie is a blonde.
Tom Hardy And Logan Marshall-Green
Wow, we can totally see the resemblance between the two actors. If we did not know any better, we would have been very confused. Tom Hardy is best known for starring in Venom, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Dark Knight Rises. On the other hand, Logan Marshall-Green was the actor in Prometheus, The Invitation, and Devil.
Bryce Dallas Howard And Jessica Chastain
Are you surprised to hear that these redheaded beauties are two different ladies? They do look alike, from the hair to the porcelain skin, down to the strong chin. Bryce Dallas Howard was in Jurassic World, and Terminator Salvation. Jessica Chastain, on the other hand, won an Oscar for Zero Dark Thirty. The two actresses have actually worked together in the past! They were both in The Help.
Sienna Miller And Mollie King
The woman on the right is Sienna Miller, who was in Factory Girl, The Girl and The Edge of Love. She is not the one on the right. That one is Mollie King, who is an English model, singer-songwriter, and presenter. You might also know her as a member of The Saturdays. If they ever need a break, maybe they can ask each other for a big favor.
Alicia Silverstone And Maggie Lawson
A lot of people know Alicia Silverstone for her iconic portrayal of Cher in Clueless. She was recently in The Baby Sitters Club and Valley Girl as well. Let us now talk about her lookalike. She is Maggie Lawson, who made it big as Detective Jules O’Hara in Psych!
Josh Holloway And Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Do you remember Sawyer from LOST? He was brought to life by actor Josh Holloway. If you do not know which guy he is in the photo, he is the one on the left. The one on the right, on the other hand, is the man who played Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones. They can pass for twins.
Amy Adams And Isla Fisher
This is one more case of redheaded beauties. We can see why you would have thought that they were the same person. Luckily for you, we are here to correct that mistake. Amy Adams is most famous for her work in Enchanted. Isla Fisher, meanwhile, was in the Now You See Me.
Eva Mendes And Ashley Graham
Whoa, are we seeing double or what? Don’t worry, we know which one is which. The first woman is Eva Mendes, who was in Hitch and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Beside her is Ashley Graham, who made a name for herself as a plus-sized model. Don’t you think that they are both stunning?
Richard Madden And Gus Kenworthy
Here is another Game of Thrones alum on our list! Richard Madden played Robb Stark until the third season of the show. The man on the right, on the other hand, is Gus Kenworthy. He is not an actor but an athlete! He is a talented freestyle skier who has an Olympic silver medal to his name.
Claire Danes And Clémence Poésy
Look at these two blonde beauties. Are we sure that they are not actually twins? Claire Danes is an actress who starred in My So-Called Life, Romeo + Juliet, The Hours, and Stardust. Meanwhile, Clemence Poesy is a French actress who is best known for playing Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter movies.
Carrie Underwood And Emily Osment
In 2005, Carrie Underwood made a name for herself when she won the fourth season of American Idol. She continues to be a famous country singer to this day. To her right, we have Emily Osment. If you watched a lot of Disney shows, you might remember her as Lilly in Hannah Montana.
Chace Crawford And Ian Somerhalder
A lot of people drooled over these two men thanks to the popularity of Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries. You were sorely mistaken if you thought that Nate Archibald and Damon Salvatore were played by the same actor! Allow us to shed some light on the matter. The characters were portrayed by Chace Crawford and Ian Somerhalder, respectively.
Will Ferrell And Chad Smith
Do you find it hard to tell Will Ferrell and Chad Smith apart? You are not the only person who finds it challenging. You probably know Will Ferrell from Saturday Night Live and his plethora of comedy flicks. His lookalike is a musician. He is the drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers!
Erin Richards And Missi Pyle
How can you tell Erin Richards and Missi Pyle apart? It can be a bit confusing if we rely solely on their looks. The former is best known for starring in Gotham and Breaking In, whereas the latter made a name for herself in films like Bringing Down the House, Big Fish, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Tiffani Thiessen And Alexandra Daddario
We want to make it clear that you are looking at two different actresses. Yes, they look alike but that is all. Tiffani Thiessen was in Saved by the Bell and Beverly Hills, 90210. Alexandra Daddario, on the other hand, was in Percy Jackson and Can You Keep A Secret?
Tracy Morgan And Doug E. Fresh
With the hair and sunglasses, anyone would be confused here. The one on the left is Tracy Morgan, a standup artist who was on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. On the right, we have Doug E. Fresh. Also known as the “Human Beat Box,” he is a talented American rapper.
Cameron Diaz And Ellen Barkin
Which one of these ladies is Cameron Diaz? Are you sure? All right, we are done playing games. The There’s Something About Mary star is the one on the left. Beside her is a photo of Ellen Barkin. She is best known for starring in Tender Mercies and Sea of Love.
Andy Serkis And Michael Sheen
Do you know which photo shows Michael Sheen? How about Andy Serkis? The left one is Serkis, who is best known as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings. He was also in the Star Wars sequels! Sheen, on the other hand, is an actor who has made a name for himself with his stage work.
Rachel Bilson And Selena Gomez
No, this is not a photo of the same person. The first photo shows Rachel Bilson, the actress who brought Summer Roberts to life on The O.C. Meanwhile, the second photo is of Selena Gomez. We are sure that we do not really need to introduce the popular pop star to you.
Amanda Peet And Lake Bell
If it had not been for the different hairstyles, we would have been so lost. Amanda Peet is the woman on the left. She has appeared in movies like The Whole Nine Yards and The X-Files: I Want To Believe. Lake Bell, meanwhile, was in Boston Legal and Bless This Mess. Apart from acting, she has also worked as a film director and screenwriter in the past.
Katy Perry And Zooey Deschanel
This is one of the most confusing entries on the list. It’s the black hair, bangs, and blue eyes that do it for us. Katy Perry, the singer of “California Girls” and “Teenage Dream”, is the one on the left. Beside her is Zooey Deschanel, who is best known for 500 Days of Summer and New Girl. Did you know that she can sing as well?
Eli Roth And Zachary Quinto
A horror genre icon, Eli Roth is best known as the director of films Hostel and Cabin Fever. On the other hand, Zachary Quinto became a household name for starring in Star Trek, and Heroes. He is the one on the right, while Roth is the guy on the left.
Jordana Brewster And Demi Moore
Wow, even we had to pause and stare. It should be illegal for two ladies to look this much alike! Jordana Brewster got her start by starring in All My Children and As The World Turns. She is the woman on the left. To her right is Demi Moore, who was a part of the Brat Pack of the ‘80s.
Michael Sheen And Billie Joe Armstrong
We already mentioned Michael Sheen earlier, but you can have more than one lookalike in Hollywood! The guy on the right in this photo is none other than Billie Joe Armstrong. He earned household name status as the lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and songwriter of Green Day. They still perform to this day!
Will Arnett And Patrick Wilson
Most TV viewers will know Will Arnett as the actor who brought Gob Bluth to life in Arrested Development. For your reference, he is the first guy in this photo. That means that Patrick Wilson is the man on his right. An actor himself, he made a name for himself on the Broadway stage.
Matt Bomer And Henry Cavill
These two guys have some of the best bone structures in the industry! Matt Bomer made his TV debut in All My Children. He also starred in White Collar and Magic Mike. He is the one on the left. On the other hand, his lookalike Henry Cavill has been raking in project after project recently. You might have seen him in The Witcher and Man of Steel.
Zoe Saldana And Thandie Newton
These two ladies are equally stunning! They sure look alike, especially in this photo. Zoe Saldana, the one on the left, is best known for starring in Avatar, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Colombiana. Meanwhile, Thandie Newton is an English actress who appeared in The Pursuit of Happyness, Westworld, and Mission: Impossible 2.
Jeremy Irons And Daniel Day-Lewis
Anyone who loves theatre knows that Jeremy Irons is a talented actor both on the stage and in front of the camera. However, even they might not be able to tell him apart from Daniel Day-Lewis. In case you did not know, the latter is the man who was in Gangs of New York and Lincoln.
Keira Knightley And Natalie Portman
The truth is that Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman look so alike that the former served as the double of the latter in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. It probably does not help that they both made it big in Hollywood at around the same time! They are both very lovely, but they are easier to distinguish now than when they had been younger.
Portia De Rossi And Drea De Matteo
Guys, we think that we have just discovered a pair of long-lost twins. We are talking about Portia de Rossi and Drea de Matteo. How interesting is that? It would be so easy to mistake one for the other. We wonder if Ellen DeGeneres can tell her wife and the Desperate Housewives actress apart!
Jason Sudeikis And Ed Helms
It is an easy enough mistake to make, but Jason Sudeikis and Ed Helms are two different men. For one, the former was in We’re the Millers and Horrible Bosses. He is also the partner of Olivia Wilde. On the other hand, Helms was in The Hangover and The Office.
Jessica Biel And Christy Turlington
With their eyes and hair, we can see why some people think Jessica Biel and Christy Turlington look alike. The evidence is right below, your honor! We are sure that neither the supermodel nor the 7th Heaven actress is offended by this comparison. After all, they are both stunning women!
Nathalie Emmanuel And Meghan Markle
A lot of people keep saying that Nathalie Emmanuel is the spitting image of Meghan Markle. However, it does not look like the Game of Thrones actress agrees with that. She has previously said that while they are both beautiful, the only similarity they have is that they are both mixed.
Carey Mulligan And Michelle Williams
No, they are not related! Carey Mulligan and Michelle Williams both have a penchant for starring in indie films. On top of that, they have sported very similar hairstyles in the past. Their fair complexions and pouts also have people comparing them. They both look great, so there is nothing wrong with that!
Jada Pinkett Smith And Zoe Saldana
We would have mistaken them for siblings had we not known the truth. As a matter of fact, Zoe Saldana has more physical similarities with Jada Pinkett Smith than with her own biological sisters. At any rate, we are sure that they would both be flattered by this comparison. Just look at how gorgeous they are.
Kat Dennings And Marion Cotillard
At certain angles and with certain styling, Kat Dennings looks just like Marion Cotillard! After all, they are both brunettes with exquisite bone structures. The former is best known for 2 Broke Girls, while the French actress blew us away in Inception and The Dark Knight Rises.
Blake Lively And Melissa Benoist
Where can we report a suspected case of twins separated at birth? This is exactly what we think happened to Blake Lively and Melissa Benoist! When the latter went blonde for Supergirl, it was hard to ignore just how much she looked like the Gossip Girl star. It is uncanny!
Courteney Cox And Demi Moore
These two actresses could probably play a switch prank on us, and we would be none the wiser. They do not look like Friends but sisters! Get it? In September 2019, Demi Moore even took to Instagram to post a photo of them together. The caption read, “Who’s who.” What an excellent question!
Hilary Swank And Jennifer Garner
It is not hard to say that Jennifer Garner is one of a kind, but this might not be the case! Both she and Hilary Swank know that they look alike. As a matter of fact, people tend to be confused while asking them for autographs or photos! There are times when Hilary Swank just goes with it since it is easier.
Emma Stone And Melinda Clarke
Even though Melinda Clarke is considerably older than Emma Stone, there are times when we have to take another look to figure out who is who. The younger actress is lovely, so we are sure that The O.C. actress does not mind being compared to someone decades younger than her.
Abigail Breslin And Chloë Grace Moretz
Both Abigail Breslin and Chloe Grace Moretz had been child actresses in Hollywood at the same time. The two of them are both talented and beautiful! When they were kids, the similarities between them were much more pronounced. They have since grown into gorgeous young women in their own right.
Nina Dobrev And Victoria Justice
Do you recall Victoria Justice from Zoey 101 and Victorious on Nickelodeon? She is the woman on the right in this photo. People always bring up that she looks very similar to Nina Dobrev, who made a name for herself by taking on the lead role in The Vampire Diaries.
Leighton Meester And Minka Kelly
In our opinion, these two have identical smiles! Aside from that, the Gossip Girl star and the Friday Night Lights actress have the same luscious locks and dazzling eyes as well. Say what you will about them, but there is no denying the fact that they are both lovely women.
Scarlett Johansson And Amber Heard
Best known for her successful acting career, Scarlett Johansson is said to look a lot like Amber Heard. Do you agree? We can see it, to a certain extent. Aside from this, the two of them have something else in common! They both play comic book superheroes. Johansson plays Black Widow, while Heard is Mera.
Elizabeth Banks And Rachel McAdams
They have more things in common than simply being talented actresses. In our opinion, it would be a shame if Elizabeth Banks and Rachel McAdams do not get the chance to play siblings in a movie. The Hunger Games actress and The Notebook star can pull it off so well!
America Ferrera And Jordin Sparks
Even though she starred in Ugly Betty, that adjective does not apply to America Ferrera at all! As a matter of fact, she is nothing short of gorgeous. We are sure that singer Jordin Sparks would be honored to hear that they look alike. As a matter of fact, we bet that they hear this all the time.
Helen Hunt And Leelee Sobieski
There is no need to worry if younger readers are not familiar with these two stars. You see, they have both been away from the spotlight for quite some time now. We are not exactly sure why they have disappeared from the limelight, but they can pass for doppelgangers in the photo below.
Ashley Greene And Coco Rocha
If Ashley Greene ever needs to find a person to play her twin, we are sure that she can count on Coco Rocha. I mean, just look at how similar they look! The Twilight star and the digital model both have strong bone structures that many people would kill for.
Jeff Bridges And Kurt Russell
The confusion is perfectly acceptable since the resemblance between Jeff Bridges and Kurt Russell is uncanny. In this photo, they have the same grey hair and beard. It was already difficult to tell them apart early in their careers, but the similarities have been magnified as they settle into old age.
Ronda Rousey and Julia Stiles
We are sure that there will come a point in time when a biopic about Ronda Rousey comes out. In our opinion, no one is a better fit for this role than Julia Stiles of Ten Things I Hate About You fame. After all, the two of them are practically doppelgangers.
Tilda Swinton and Cate Blanchett
Are we really sure that Tilda Swinton and Cate Blanchett are not the same person? Look at these photos to see where we are coming from. It is impossible to ignore just how many similarities exist between the stars of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings.
Ruth Wilson And Michelle Monaghan
As long as you have eyes, you should be able to see just how much they look alike. In fact, we are not surprised to hear that people ask if they are related. Ruth Wilson from Luther could pretend to be Michelle Monaghan from Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and we would not even bat an eyelash at her.
Bradley Cooper And Hrithik Roshan
These two men both have chiseled faces that make all the girls want them. As you can see in this photo, the Limitless actor can be mistaken for the Bollywood star. Of course, Hrithik Roshan has darker features than his Hollywood counterpart. At any rate, they are both certified hunks in our books!
