“We often create idols for ourselves, admire celebrities, their work in movies and on television. However, there are so many Hollywood stars who look very similar that they can be easily confused. Sometimes even their family members can make mistakes. Let’s take a look at 13 pairs of look-alike Hollywood stars so that we never make a mistake again.
1. Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard
It is understandable and logical that ordinary people confuse these actresses, but the fact that the father of one of the actresses mistakenly confused his own daughter has no justification. Jessica Chastain shared this incident: she met film director Ron Howard (Bryce’s father) in a store, and he thought she was his daughter. “That’s when I really understood how much we look alike,” commented Jessica Chastain.
2. Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel
The media constantly publishes photos of these two celebrities to find more similarities. Zooey Deschanel is tired of explaining that she is not related to Katy Perry. However, if someone makes a mistake and still confuses the two celebrities, they won’t leave without an autograph: “Of course, I can sign with her name, as I don’t want to disappoint anyone,” said Zooey Deschanel.
3. Ryan Gosling and Ryan Reynolds
“Sometimes people ask to take a picture with me, and when they look at the photo, they realize that I am not Ryan Reynolds,” said Gosling in an interview with “E! News.” In turn, at the Golden Globes 2017, Ryan Reynolds shared his experience: “Once my uncle told me that I was just fantastic in ‘La La Land,’ and I didn’t correct him, even though Ryan Gosling played there, not me.”
4. Amy Adams and Isla Fisher
Despite the difference in popularity in their profession (so far), it’s hard not to notice the obvious similarity between these two actresses. Isla Fisher even decided to joke with her relatives, sending them a Christmas video greeting as if it were from Amy Adams. No one even noticed the difference (of course, Isla used a bit of computer graphics magic). There is even a short video where Isla proves that she and Amy are different people.
5. Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
The famous Spanish actor and the performer of one of the main roles in “Grey’s Anatomy” have been constantly denying any family connection for several years. “People should see us in the same room to compare and definitely understand that we are not so alike,” says Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
6. Sarah Hyland and Mila Kunis
Despite the fact that these similar actresses have conquered the world of American sitcoms, they are not connected by family ties, except for an 8-year age difference between them. “Mila told me that she is often called by my name, and she doesn’t always correct it because she likes to feel 8 years younger,” Sarah Hyland said in an interview.
7. Darren Criss and Kit Harington
These two actors achieved worldwide fame quite recently thanks to the TV series “Game of Thrones” (Kit Harington) and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” (Darren Criss). The Golden Globe winner for the series “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” shared on his Instagram about a fan of “Game of Thrones” mistaking him for the legendary Jon Snow.
8. Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman
In some cases, the external similarity of actors can become a pass to Hollywood. This happened to Keira Knightley, who got her first Hollywood role thanks to her resemblance to Natalie Portman: she played Padmé Amidala (a plot substitution of Portman’s character) in the famous movie “Star Wars.”
9. Keira Knightley and Daisy Ridley
But stars don’t always react positively to comparisons. For example, actress Daisy Ridley, who played Rey in the latest “Star Wars” films, is already tired of constant comparisons with the star of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” “It’s very annoying when they constantly point out the similarity with Keira. Why should I be like another person?” said the actress in one of her interviews.
10. Helen Hunt and Jodie Foster
Yes, these two legendary Oscar-winning actresses also often encounter comedic situations related to their similarity. For example, a barista in a popular coffee shop confused the two actresses. She told Helen Hunt, “Don’t tell me your name, I know it,” and served coffee with the inscription on the cup “Jodie Foster.” Helen Hunt reacted to this incident without offense and humorously shared it on Twitter.
11. Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood
Both with blue eyes, both of short stature, and both became famous actors almost at the same time. They played the leading roles in the most popular fantasy sagas (“The Lord of the Rings” and “Harry Potter”). “Maybe we should settle this issue with a battle,” joked Elijah Wood in one of the interviews.
12. Samuel L. Jackson and Laurence Fishburne
“Do you want to be a good journalist? Yes, there are many black and popular celebrities, but we are not all the same,” replied Jackson with undisguised anger to one of the journalists of a popular TV channel who confused him with Laurence Fishburne. Of course, the journalist apologized, but it did not soften the heart of the Hollywood actor.
13. Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly
No, they are not twins. Despite the striking resemblance, Margot Robbie and Jamie Pressly have many differences: nationality, success in the industry, three children, and a 13-year age difference.
Despite their resemblance, all these celebrities have achieved success in the film industry. However, show business doesn’t attract everyone! There are those who, once touching fame, decide to give up a brilliant career in cinema.”
