What could possibly be better than being a dead-ringer for a certain celebrity? Not only could you potentially blag yourself some free drinks at the bar, but chances are, if you look like a celebrity, you’re also pretty good looking. Okay, so the unwanted attention from mistaken fans could maybe start to grate a little, but we think that the pros would seriously outweigh the cons.
Believe it or not, there are actually quite a few people out there who resemble a celebrity. And to prove it to you, here are 55 Celebrity doppelgangers that prove everyone has a twin.
1. Jimmy Fallon
The resemblance is so uncanny between this man and the Jimmy Fallon waxwork, that it took us a while to work out who was who. But all joking aside, this man is actually the dead ringer for Jimmy. We reckon he could stand in on Jimmy’s show if he was ever off sick, and no one would notice!
2. Peter Dinklage
If you haven’t seen Game of Thrones then you must have been living under a rock. Those who have will immediately recognise this man as the absolute double of Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in the show. It’s uncanny!
3. Barack Obama
Life as an ex-president must sometimes feel a little uneventful after all the excitement, but never did we expect to see Mr Obama scanning through items at the local supermarket. Times must be hard!
4. Bruce Willis
This guy looks more like Bruce Willis than Bruce Willis himself does. We bet he gets asked for autographs and selfies on a daily basis! He’s even got the facial expression nailed.
5. Robert Downey Jr
Although this man doesn’t share the exact resemblance to Robert Downey Jr, we think that with those facial features, it’s enough for us to do a double-take. We’d say that this man is more like a brother than a twin to the famous actor. Still pretty impressive, though!
6. Ed Sheeran
If Ed Sheeran had a daughter, this is what you’d expect her to look like. This little girl shares an uncanny resemblance to the singer- so much so that we’re beginning to question if she’s the secret love child! Care to confess, Ed?…
7. Morgan Freeman
If Morgan Freeman was a little more frail-looking, we’d almost be convinced that this man was him. Unless Morgan has decided to go down a different career route, we’re pretty certain that this man isn’t him. We’d say the pair share a 7/10 resemblance.
8. Conan O’Brien
Since when does late-night host Conan O’Brien take the subway? We’d certainly do a double-take if we saw this celebrity lookalike sitting on our ride home. We’re pretty certain that Conan would have a car, though.
9. Danny Devito
If Danny Devito was Hispanic, then we’re certain that this is what he’d look like. Even with a different skin tone, they look uncanny! If this man was to speak, we couldn’t imagine him not having the famous Devito holler.
10. Robert Downey Jr
Here we have yet another Robert Downey Jr, and judging by this man’s shirt, he seems to be aware of the fact that he looks like a certain celebrity. He’s pretending that he’s oblivious to all the attention, but we all know that he’s secretly loving it. This is the exact way that we would be if we had a famous doppelganger.
11. Conan O’Brien
Prepare for your minds to be blown, because this man looked like Conan O’Brien before Conan O’Brien was even around! Technically speaking, wouldn’t this mean that Conan O’Brien actually is a lookalike to this random, historical man? We think so.
12. Jimmy Fallon
Why is it that all late-night show host lookalikes seem to be spotted on the subway? We’re pretty sure we would do a double-take on this one, especially if we were tired after a long day at work. The expression is there, though the haircut is somewhat of a giveaway.
13. Richard Attenborough
All Jurassic Park fans will get excited about this picture. John Hammond was the mad scientist who was adamant that he could create a successful dinosaur theme park, and this man looks exactly like him! Even down to the white hat.
14. Vincent Van Gogh
Imagine being a lookalike for Vincent Van Gogh. This guy has it easy when it comes to fancy dress parties! We wonder if he still has his other ear?
15. Tom Hanks
These guys must look alike if the poster stopped to snap a sneaky picture in the middle of a game! Despite not having his trademark curls, we can definitely see the resemblance. Though dare we say it, this guy looks a little younger (sorry, Tom!)
16. Vladimir Putin
Just imagine how surprised you’d be to find yourself riding the Subway with Russian President Vladimir Putin? The Subway seems to be the place where all celebrity lookalikes hang out. How come our commutes are never this exciting?
17. Nicholas Cage
It turns out that it’s not just humans who look like other humans. This picture is proof that animals can also have their celebrity lookalikes! It’s creepy how much this cat looks like Nicholas Cage.
18. Jon Snow
Here’s another one for all of you Game of Thrones superfans. We love the commitment that this man has made to resemble his celebrity lookalike, even by growing his hair to take on Jon’s trademark curls! 10/10 effort.
19. Steve Carrell
The Office has to be one of the most-loved shows in the nation, and we think we’d almost pee ourselves with excitement if we saw this Steve Carrell lookalike while out at a restaurant. Steve plays hilarious boss Michael Scott, and has even been recognised as the “Funniest Man of America.”
20. Alfonso Ribeiro
Alfonso Ribeiro played the much-loved Carlton, in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and his famous “Carlton dance” which he made up, is well known all over the world. And although this police officer is clearly a different skin tone, we probably wouldn’t resist asking him if he can dance.
Now, this is somebody who you really wouldn’t want to look like. These moustaches haven’t been in fashion since 1930s Germany, so there really is no excuse. We wonder if anyone has told him yet?
If you look at this picture and squint, then these six could easily pass for the original actors on Friends. We have to admit, we’re beyond jealous of the girl in the middle, as we’d love to look like Jennifer Aniston! Which one is your favorite character?
23. Gaten Matarazzo
Stranger Things fans will recognize this lookalike as Gaten Matarazzo, the actor who plays Dustin Henderson in the show. We think it’s pretty impressive to have some neck rolls that resemble a famous person. Well, it’s certainly unique, anyway!
24. Richard Gere
This one took us a few seconds, but when you see it, it’s impossible to un-see. There’s no denying that this dog looks like actor Richard Gere, and despite the fact that he is now 71 years old and the dog is clearly a lot younger (though perhaps not in doggy years), we think that this dog still bears the perfect resemblance to Richard.
25. George Clooney
Just like Mr. Clooney, this man seems to have aged like a fine wine, and although he is Turkish, we can still see a clear resemblance. We love to see older men rocking their gray hair. They don’t call them a “silver fox” for nothing.
26. Amy Poehler
They may only share just a couple of distinguishing features, but this Super Lawyer looks very similar to Pawnee’s Parks and Recreations deputy director, Leslie Knope. If they had the same hair color, they would practically be twins!
27. Bill Gates
If Bill Gates was a woman, this is what he would look like. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if this lady was in fact one of Bill Gate’s long lost sisters. It’s uncanny!
28. Michael Scott
Who knew that there were so many people out there who look like Michael Scott? This man would be the spitting image if it wasn’t for his moustache. He’s even got the expression nailed!
29. Abraham Lincoln
We didn’t think it was possible for a person to look as if they’ve just stepped straight out of a history book until we saw this man. We think if Abraham Lincoln had somehow managed to time travel, he would be a lot more fascinated to be getting on a plane than this man looks.
30. Ryan Gosling
We’re not entirely sure about the context of this picture, nor what all the pieces of wood are for, but one thing’s for sure, this man sure does look like Ryan Gosling. But instead of pursuing acting like his famous doppelganger, this man seems to have decided to go down the route of carpentry.
31. Josh Hutcherson
This one took us a little while to get, but as soon as you mention Peeta from The Hunger Games, it’s impossible to un-see. This man is a pretty accurate representation of what Peeta would look like if he lived in the Capitol for a long time, and we’re actually kind of digging the look.
32. Mona Lisa
Despite Mona Lisa not being your typical, modern-day celebrity, there’s no denying that it wouldn’t be cool to look like her. This woman has the same natural beauty as her doppelganger, and her sweet smile and those high cheekbones look as if she’s stepped straight out of a painting!
33. Stan Lee
The world mourned when Marvel Creator Stan Lee passed away, so it’s lovely to see that his essence still lives on in random strangers. There are conspiracies about people’s deaths all the time, so we wouldn’t be entirely surprised if people started to say that Stan could actually still be alive.
34. Sir Ian McKellen
If you’ve never thought of Gandalf as the gambling type, then think again. The wise old wizard was spotted at the local casino, and we can’t help having a giggle. We wonder if he won anything?
35. Elon Musk
This man looks so similar to Elon Musk that it’s actually a bit creepy. We wonder how many times he’s been stopped for an autograph?
36. András Arató
This man’s name might not ring a bell to you, but we’re sure the name, “Hide the Pain Harold” is a lot more familiar. The Hungarian stock photo model soon grew famous when he was added into some hilarious memes, and who knew that an Indian man would share his signature trademark smile?
37. Jon Hamm
First off, can we just take a moment to appreciate the sneaky photography skills that went into taking this picture? We love the commitment to getting the snap. Secondly, this man is the spitting image of Mad Men actor, Jon Hamm, and the more you look, the more similar he gets!
38. Simon Cowell
The notoriously bad-tempered TV judge is known for his many lavish and luxurious travels all around the world, so we wouldn’t be too surprised to spot him on vacation. With that being said, we’d expect him to have his own private suite at the least. We wonder if the person behind the photograph was brave enough to sing for him?
39. Will Smith
Admittedly, this one is a little far off the mark for us. Although the guy is said to look like a white Will Smith, are we the only ones who see a little more of actor Macaulay Culkin in him? Let us know!
40. Kanye West
This was one of those photos where we instantly recognized the celebrity who this man looks like. All he needs to do is change his outfit to something a little more extravagant, and then he’ll be the spitting image of the outspoken rapper.
