Celebrities Who Look Identical To People From History

It's a proven fact that there are at least nine people walking this Earth at this very moment that looks nearly identical or very similar to you. Luckily this isn't a Highlander situation where you have to hunt them down and kill them so there can be only one of you. That would definitely kill the vibe here on Earth.

With nine people walking on the Earth that look like you today, you imagine how many people who once walked the earth in the past who you shared the same looks as you. Don't go looking in the history books. You just might find yourself. Even more likely, you'll find a famous celebrity face.

No one's face is more recognizable than a celebrity's faces. You've probably seen Jimmy Fallon's face more than you've seen your own mothers. That means you'll be much quicker to notice celebrity dopplebangers. That can make it feel like we're living among time travelers. Maybe we are? See for yourself with these fifty photos.

Matthew McConaughey

To be quite honest, at times, Matthew McConaughey does hold the facial features of someone from a blast from the past so, we're somewhat not surprised. And yet, it seems like Matthew McConaughey won't be going anywhere time soon with his extensive array of blockbuster movies that range from the space thriller, Interstellar, to the lust-driven, Magic Mike, to the children's film, Sing, this guy is literally everywhere.

And as for his old-timey look-a-like, he appears like he could have been a scholar with a doctorate degree in some very risk heavy medicine, some type of government official, the residential suit tailor of his small town that everyone visits, or hell just somebody's racist great-great-grandfather, regardless he's got one hell of a mustache and his futuristic doppelganger is killing the Hollywood game right now.

Jimmy Fallon

No offense to any of the Jimmy Fallon fans out there but he's not even the best Jimmy on late-night television these days and there isn't a skit he can do, an interview that he can conduct, or a song he can make a gimmick out of that will match the intensity or importance of his historical look-a-like in Turkish revolutionist, Mahir Cayan. Matter of fact, not many of us have the balls to top any type of revolutionist but at least Jimmy Fallon should give Kimmel a run for his money from time to time.

Jimmy Fallon has been working the late-night talk show/comedy sketch circuit for a couple of decades now and is currently the host of The Tonight Show after doing stints with Saturday Night Live and Late Night and probably won't be headed anywhere for decades to come. One thing Fallon has on both Kimmel and Fallon though is his taste in music, there's no denying that Jimmy Fallon has the best house band in late night with The Roots backing him.

Nicolas Cage

At one point in time, Nicolas Cage was on top of the world and there wasn't an action thriller film or intense drama that he wasn't starring in. From movies like Gone In 60 Seconds, the National Treasure franchise films, The Wicker Man, and 2012's Stolen the guy has portrayed the perfect protagonist that we all wanted help. Then there were times early in his career that he made some rather interesting casting choices like starring in Peggy Sue Got Married, Valley Girl, and that horrendous Ghost Rider movie... Yikes.

Regardless, Nicolas Cage defined a generation of actors and he too is another celebrity with a creepily similar doppelganger in this semi-enthused Civil War-era dashing young chap. One thing we can say about the young man is that his hairline was holding up a lot better than Cage's is these days. The tye is a bit much but that full head of hair probably has Cage fuming right now. No worries, Nicolas can borrow some from his goth son, Weston who has hair flowing down his back.

Jay Z

Jay Z is literally the blueprint and aspiration of every hip-hop artist out today. Prior to pursuing music, Shawn Carter, better known by his stage name today, Jay Z, was a hardcore drug dealer who thought of hip-hop artists as corny being that he had already accomplished what many artists in the late '80s wanted to acquire financially. These days, Jay Z is married to the largest act in music in Beyonce, owns all of his masters and a music streaming service in Tidal, his own record label, and more.

Hov is the futuristic of the doppelganger of the gentleman on the right who probably lived during an era where people of his ethnicity had to move very carefully and probably didn't have access to ownership or a pipeline that would allow him to own as much as Jay Z does today. Now, with inspiring figures like Jay in abundance more than ever and being a reality, young black men have multiple avenues of inspiration when at one point in time, there might not have been any at all.

Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy was the face of comedy during his historic run in the '80s which helped shaped his blockbuster Hollywood career that is finally slowing down in the 2010s. From the Beverly Hills Cop series, Coming To America, Harlem Nights, Boomerang, and his still highly sought-after comedy releases in Delirious and Raw, there wasn't a man alive who didn't want to rock one of those tight leather suits and be just like Eddie. Even though Murphy might have gone on to participate in some lackluster movies including the embarrassing Norbit, he's still mentioned with some of the greatest comedy acts of all-time.

And from the looks of things, he might have a long, lost ancestor that might have had a joke or two up his sleeve as well. The pork pie top hat, tiny bow tie, and pinstripe suit let us know this guy was the life of the party wherever he went and Eddie might have picked up those genes and maximized them to their full potential.

Jennifer Lawrence

It seems like Jennifer Lawrence has been around for a lot longer than she really has, due to the volume of work that she's participated in, in the last decade. Jennifer Lawrence's role as Mystique in the comic book turned movies series, X-Men, has made her international superstar alongside her role as the Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games series which earned her the titles of the highest paid female actress in both the 2015 and 2016 years. Now, Lawrence is looking to solidify her acting career forever by participating in critically acclaimed films like Mother! and the upcoming film, Red Sparrow.

What many don't know is that there was a Jennifer Lawrence before there was even a Jennifer Lawrence in actress, Zubaida Tharwat, an Egyptian actress who's known for having the most beautiful eyes in the region during the '60s and '70s. If you compare both Tharwat's and Lawrence's facial features, the similarities are uncanny. Unfortunately, Tharwat passed away at the age of 76-years-old in 2016. Rest well to the beauty and talent that was Zubaida Tharwat.

Channing Tatum

To all the men out there, let your lady step out with their friends to go see the latest Channing Tatum film but, never let her attend an event where the strapping multi-millionaire is set going to be located, it could be the end of your relationship. Surprisingly, Tatum got his big break with the release of the dance film, Step Up in 2006 and since then has gone on to star in a wide array of films including the Hateful Eight, This Is The End, G.I. Joe, the rebooted 21 Jump Street series, and of course, the Magic Mike films as well. Heck, Tatum even has some voiceover work done for The Legos Movies series as well, there isn't a revenue stream in Hollywood that Tatum doesn't have his hand in.

But what he doesn't have his hand in is the reality his World War I doppelganger had to face. Who knows what type of vile carnage that man had to endure and witness, there's no telling on whether or not he made it through battle but with Tatum existing today, there's a good chance he either survived or had a younger brother with strong genes to keep hope alive.

Matt Damon

Even though Matt Damon is nearing 50-years-old, he still appears to be the go-to actor for most major motion film studios. His work in Good Will Hunting and Saving Private Ryan solidified his spot as one of the best actors of this generation while his participation in films like The Good Shepherd, The Informant!, the Ocean's Eleven franchise, the Bourne Identity movies, have made him a household name. At times, it seems like Damon plays the same recurring characters but yet shows range by participating in movies like Eurotrip, Stuck On You, and the underwhelming Jersey Girl.

What's scary to think about though, is Matt might be a relative to the enemies of our World War II allies. Whether or not, Matt Damon's possible relation to a Nazi general, he's done a lot to entertain the masses throughout multiple decades here in America. Let's just keep this one at face value and hope that this guy is just a look-a-like and not a possible ancestor of Matt Damon.

Conan O'Brien

Conan O'Brien is probably one of the more likable public figures in the late-night talk show host circuit and doesn't really have to perform too many corny antics to get a good laugh from his audience. His sketches seem genuine and he doesn't force his entertainment guest into awkward situations which is probably why he has been in the late-night scene since the early '90s. Conan started his rise to prominence in 1993 as the star of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, including a short stint with The Tonight Show, and now his own self-titled show simply called, Conan.

What many don't know is that the red-headed late-night television show host is the ancestor of Civil War Union Army soldier, Marshall Twitchell who later became a Louisiana state senator after the Reconstruction. Luckily, Conan doesn't have to deal with the backlash of having a potentially racist ancestor that fought for the Confederacy. He's all good in our book.

Jack Black

Jack Black gives off this reincarnation of Chris Farley vibe at times but still hasn't reached the peak position that the late comedian turned actor still holds in our hearts to this very day but that hasn't stopped Black from putting out some rather dope and hilarious projects including School of Rock, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, Tropic Thunder, and of course Nacho Libre. Black has displayed his range though with his participation in films like King Kong, the Kung-Fu Panda series, and his latest work in the rebooted rendition of Jumanji.

We understand, the gentleman to the right looks like Jack Black playing a high school kid going to prom in the 1970s but that isn't the case whatsoever. This dude and Jack Black are two totally different people and the strapping, sharply dressed young man is a random patron attending a wedding in the 1950s. They look so similar, cloning and time travel isn't ruled out in our book in this case.

Orlando Bloom

There's no denying that Orlando Bloom is not one of Hollywood's elite. Bloom's true rise to superstardom came in the form of the Lord of the Rings trilogy as well as his appearances in the franchise spinoff, The Hobbit. Not to mention his roles in multi-billion dollar grossing films like The Pirates of the Caribbean series have lined his pockets with what seems like an endless amount of funds and of course, any woman within a forty-five mile of his current location.

Not only is Orlando Bloom killing it in the entertainment industry and rich as hell, he's got swagger about him without the superficial things most of us find alluring which is probably why is likened to painter/writer Nicolae Grigorescu. These two dashing young fellas are definitely cut from the same gene pool and share strikingly similar facial features.

Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone's willingness to hold out and get paid a minimal rate for both writing and starring in the classic boxing film, Rocky, knowing that it was going to be a hit is proof of his own undying confidence in himself and knowing that he would be one of the world's biggest superstars. And to this very day, at the age of 71-years-old, Stallone still has a heavy impact on the film industry starring in movies like The Expendables series, Escape Plan, and the Rocky spinoff series in Creed.

Even though Sylvester Stallone is an international hit in this current era, he definitely wasn't as famous as his doppelganger in Pope Gregory IX and that's obvious with how huge of a following the Catholic Church has and what they're able to get away with... Let's just hope that Pope Gregory IX didn't have the same speech impediment as Sylvester Stallone's lazy mouth.

Peter Dinklage

Even though, Peter Dinklage is a prestigious actor and probably drives a Porsche that isn't gonna stop us throwing some of these jokes in his direction as he definitely has one of the biggest heads in the entertainment industry. Seriously, look at that thing. We know, Dinklage might be suffering from a condition that has stunted his growth and caused his head to swell but he too is a regular celebrity who is not immune to catching some jokes from time to time. Plus, he's got a pretty lengthy resume himself starring in films like Elf, Avengers: Infinity War, The Chronicles of Narnia, and X-Men: Days of our Future Past.

Unfortunately, Peter Dinklage's doppelganger shares way too many of the same qualities that he does with Sebastian de Morra, a court dwarf/jester of Philip IV of Spain. Yikes, we have a feeling that the uncanny resemblances are not a coincidence.

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake started off as an innocent member of Disney's Mickey Mouse Club only later to morph into the frontman of teen sensation boy band group, N'Sync, and to now become an international pop star and sex symbol that could have any woman he wants on the planet. Throughout the years, Justin Timberlake has cranked out a plethora of platinum hits, headlined multiple world tours, and even performed at the Super Bowl this past year.

What many don't know about the 'Cry Me A River' and 'Say Something' singer is that he has a look-a-like that was on the wrong side of the law. There's no telling what the unidentified man might have been booked for but from the look on his face, he definitely wasn't anyone to joke around with. He looks like he could have been a possible gunslinger or hacksaw driven serial killer. Who knows...

John Travolta

It's insane realization to ponder on the thought that John Travolta has been a contributing member of the entertainment community for five decades. His take-off role in Saturday Night Fever was released in 1977 and this year in 2018, he will play John Gotti in the autobiography simply entitled, Gotti. Not to mention, Travolta has starred in blockbuster films like Grease, Swordfish, Pulp Fiction, and Hairspray and stole the show in the majority of films he's been a part of.

As crazy as it seems, it looks like John Travolta might have a long-lost relative from the Civil War-era who might have participated in some battlefield action himself. His eyes have this sense of mysterious darkness to them which imply he'd do anything to survive and persevere from any situation. Luckily, that guy's a mystery and we got Johnny during this time in history.

Jack Gleeson

Once again, we've reached another celebrity who probably has belts that cost more than our mortgages/rent but that hasn't stopped us from noticing the size of his head as well. He can definitely break several boards with that cranium of his without feeling any type of pressure whatsoever. What's strange about Jack's acting career, is that he hasn't been around that along and got his start in the 2002 film Reign of Fire but became more notorious after playing kid Batman in Batman Begins but to today, he's most noticed for his role as King Joffrey in Game of Thrones.

Gleeson does share some scary similarities to a man who we've never actually seen before except in pictures and sculptures in the infamous Roman emperor known as Caligula, who was known for his extreme cruelty and sexual pervasive lifestyle. Who knows what Gleeson is into in his own personal life but hopefully he's nothing like his doppelganger.

Queen Latifah

Queen Latifah started her entertainment career as a hip-hop artist and instantaneously not only did street culture gravitate towards her but mainstream media and women all the around began to champion her artistry. Later, the Queen transition into acting and starred in her very own sitcom entitled, Living Single. Queen Latifah has amazing range and has starred in films like Bessie, which is autobiography for the legendary singer, Bessie Smith, the comical Bringing Down The House alongside Steve Martin, Chicago, and of course, the classic film, Set It Off.

Casual fans of the musician turned actress probably don't know is that she shares an uncanny resemblance to legendary writer, Zora Neale Hurston. Hurston is known for her take on the racial climate in the early twentieth century and for books like Their Eyes Were Watching God and Mules & Men. It's no coincidence that both Latifah and Zora share legendary status and unwavering looks.

Mesut Ozil

It's World Cup time so you know we gotta represent for all of the football/soccer fans out there with this next entry none other than Mesut Ozil. Ozil is known for agility, creativity, finesse, versatility, and keen technical skill while on the field and has the field awareness to set up any of his teammates for success. Not to mention he's played for overseas football clubs like Real Madrid and Arsenal but when it comes to World Cup events, he returns to his mainland of Germany in order to hold his country down.

Mesut Ozil is a beast of a midfield attacker but he also shares a striking resemblance to the notorious luxury sports car creator, Enzo Ferrari. The name says it all itself, and Ferrari is known as the premier producer of luxury sports automobiles. With Enzo Ferrari being from Italy and Ozil being from Germany, one could have a strong argument that the two are possibly closely related.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio is literally on top of the world, there isn't a woman in the world that wouldn't take a shot at him and there isn't a guy alive who wouldn't want to be a part of his inner circle. The Wolf of Wall Street star has found his way to an Oscar for his amazing performance in The Revenant for Best Actor after starring critically acclaimed films like Titanic, Shutter Island, Inception, Gangs of New York and more. His performance for playing an autistic child with a unique family dynamic in What's Eating Gilbert Grape is what put him on the map and led him to a road of superstardom.

What many don't know is that Dicaprio has a doppelganger in the form of a woman known as Judy Zipper. Nobody really knows too much about Zipper other than the fact that she looks like a 1960s version of the megastar actor but at least she's gained some type of notoriety after death. Shout out Judy and the Zipper family!

Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg's revolutionary idea to connect people all around the world via his social media platform entitled Facebook has single-handedly made him wealthy, making him worth over $74 billion. Unfortunately, when it comes to running platforms with millions upon millions of users, corruption can become imminent and his platform has been infiltrated with bots, hackers, and propaganda that torn the online platform apart. Now, Zuckerberg is scrambling to save face, no pun intended, by saving his empire.

Speaking of empires, Zuckerberg does share an insane resemblance to King Philip IV of Spain. The pouty lips, oversized ears, curly hair and lazy eyes are too many similarities to ignore about the two, yet the both of them have/had more power of people than the average Joe and that's definitely not a coincidence at all as well.

Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin has to be one of our favorite television personalities to this very day, even though the major television and movie roles might be behind him. He's found a recent resurgence by playing Donald J. Trump on hilarious Saturday Night Live skits and some of us might remember him as the witty Republican businessman, Jack Donaghy, on Tina Fey's 30 Rock, and others might recognize Alec from Knots Landing or Great Balls of Fire. He's played in action films like The Getaway and animated films like The Boss Baby, there's no denying that this guy has range.

There is one man on earth that Alec Baldwin is predestined to play on screen and he's the 13th President of the United States of America in Millard Fillmore, who was the last president of the Whig Party in the White House. Fillmore definitely had his hands full during a sensitive time in American history and of course, he participated in d***head behavior while also doing some right as well. Alec should definitely hit his agent about developing a story around his doppelganger.

John Krasinski

Surprisingly, John Krasinski has been in a lot of major motion pictures and television shows but majority of the consumer population knows Krasinski for his role as Jim on the American version of The Office. His blank stares into the camera and constant pranks on his co-worker, Dwight Schrute, made him a fan-favorite but he's recently taking his acting career to the next level by starring in films like The Quiet Place alongside his wife, Emily Blunt, and starring in the Amazon Prime original series, Jack Ryan.

Even though John Krasinski has a very modern aesthetic with the lazy bed-head hairstyle and slender build but yet, he too has an insanely close look-a-like from another life as well. Their jawlines, ear size, and nasal shape are damn near identical which means Krasinski had to have a paint-worthy relative somewhere hidden in his ancestry.


Eminem, one of the biggest acts in the hip-hop community has dug himself out of the trenches of 8 Mile Road in Detroit, Michigan to a lifestyle of milk and honey that any and everyone wishes to live and experience. Eminem is arguably the most skilled emcee to walk the planet but has had some questionable artistic direction and projects as of recent. That still doesn't stop the fact that he starred in one of the biggest music-based films of all-time in 8 Mile, which many assumed was an autobiography but was really just a well-written fictional story about his childhood hometown area.

Eminem also shares a look-a-like with Roman emperor, Severus Alexander, who was the last emperor of the Severan dynasty after he was assassinated which sparked a collapse in the empire's economy, foreign invasions, and five decades of civil wars. Eminem might have a dark history but at least he didn't have to go what Severus went through and he'll be honored as one of the greatest to ever touch a mic.

Andrew Garfield

It looks like we've run into a recurring theme here when it comes to both actors and their doppelgangers, some of these people have disturbingly large heads. Andrew Garfield might have been one of Marvel's largest acting assets but there's no denying that he has the neck muscles of an ox, look at that thing. Regardless, Garfield did star in the Amazing Spider-Man series and has gone on to bring in the big bucks by starring in films like Under The Silver Lake, Silence, and Breathe.

It just so happens that Garfield looks a lot like Russian revolutionary Marxist, Leon Trotsky, who later developed his own version of Marxism called none other than Trotskyism. Unfortunately, Trotsky was assassinated with an ice pick and left behind four children. With the sizes of both Trotsky's and Garfield's heads, we're surprised they just didn't tip over due to the weight of their oversized craniums.

Stephen Fry

Stephen Fry is probably one of the most interesting personalities in the entertainment realm being that he appears to be a seeker of truth. He's starred in fictional-based television shows and movies all the while participating in documentary style travel and nature shows and even autobiographical pieces. Fry still currently works on the series, Last Chance To See, a show where Fry and his zoologist partner scour the world in search of nearly extinct animal life and even played his doppelganger in the 1997 film, Wilde.

Oscar Wilde was an Irish playwright and poet who became extremely popular for his flamboyant dress, unwavering wit, and inspiring conversational skills and wrote historical novels/plays such as The Importance of Being Earnest, Salome, The Picture of Dorian Gray. Unfortunately, he died poor and alone after going to jail for two years for gross indecency with men, his final work, The Ballad of Reading Gaol detailed his grim experience in jail. Both Stephen Fry and Oscar Wilde are two treasured public figures never to be forgotten.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal of the Gyllenhaal clan seems to be one of the more eclectic members of the family as her choice of films seems to take on more artistic feels. For instance her participation in cult classic Donnie Darko, a movie that's on its way to being a classic in The Dark Knight, the 2002 film Secretary, Crazy Heart, and her latest project in the Sundance film, The Kindergarten Teacher. Not to mention she plays one hell of a prostitute in HBO's The Deuce which might have actually gone over well with her look-a-like in American Libertarian movement co-founder, Rose Wilder Lane.

Lane is known for her series of writing which includes her notable work entitled, The Discovery of Freedom. Lane also once wrote for African-American newspaper, The Pittsburgh Courier, and advocated for both anti-racism and laissez-faire from 1942-45. Rose Wilder Lane later passed away in her sleep at the age of 81-years-old. Honestly, Maggie should be honored to resemble such a beautiful soul and hardworking woman like Rose Wilder Lane.

Sacha Baron Cohen

Sacha Baron Cohen was one of the most controversial entertainment personalities of the early 2000s. Cohen's satirical take on society caused an uproar from certain communities especially when it came to his HBO television show, Da Ali G Show, in which he played three separate characters including the streetwise poser, Ali G, the Kazakh journalist, Borat Sagdiyev, and gay Austrian fashion enthusiast, Bruno Gehard. Eventually, all three characters starred in their own major motion pictures which became wildly popular all the while still remaining extremely controversial. Despite the controversy, Cohen still landed roles in the children's Madagascar movie series.

Sacha's Borat character shares a lot of visual similarities to Soviet Russian communist dictator, Joseph Stalin, who ultimately was responsible for hundreds of thousands of executions and millions of deaths due to famine in order to eradicate enemies of the working class. It could be a coincidence but, with a mind like Sacha Baron Cohen, we have a feeling this was done intentionally.

George Carlin

George Carlin is one of the most legendary stand-up comedians of all-time and probably the most consistent comedian to ever live. Carlin's stand-up philosophy and brutal honesty helped shaped an entire generation of comedians and his work has been reworked and regurgitated by even some of the best comedians of today. Carlin has a total of twenty comedy albums under his belt and sixteen televised comedy specials which is an insane amount of work for a single act to complete. Think about the next greatest stand-up comedian you could think of, Richard Pryor, Chris Rock, Chappelle... Not sure if they can hold a light to Carlin's flame.

Carlin does share a physical liking to English geologist, biologist, and naturalist, Charles Darwin, the man behind the theory of evolution. Darwin believed that through the theory of natural selection the weak are eventually bred out of a species leaving the best to manifest and thrive. Darwin's theory clashed with bible thumpers but yet he's known as one of the most respected and influential people in history.

Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves is one of those people that has such a unique aesthetic it's hard to tell what exactly his ethnic background is made up out of. Apparently, his mother is English and his father is of Chinese, Irish, Portuguese, Native Hawaiian, and English descent. Many probably wouldn't have thought that the guy from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure would become one of the world's biggest movie stars but he did and ended up starring in action films like Speed, the revolutionary Matrix trilogy, Constantine, and the John Wick series.

So, how could someone with such a complex background possibly look like anyone else on this planet? We're not sure but Keanu Reeves has a doppelganger in French painter and illustrator, Louis-Maurice Boutet de Monvel who was known for his realistic portraits and children's books illustrations. If someone as peculiar looking as Keanu Reeves has a look-a-like then there's no reason in the world to doubt that you too have one as well.

Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf's rise to prominence is not as typical as most child actors' careers. LaBeouf got his big break on the Disney Channel television show, Even Stevens, which later led to him starring in the feature film, Holes, which later led him to a lead role in one of the biggest movie franchises in history in the Transformers series. After raking in the millions, LaBeouf appeared to head into a downward spiral whether it be extreme method acting that pissed off his cast and crew members and getting into public altercations in front of bars. These days, LaBeouf is combating prejudice and has joined the socio-political activism movement.

Usually, when people think of Albert Einstein they think about an older gentleman with a thick, white mustache and unkempt hairdo but nobody ever pictures the image of a young Einstein which just so happens to look just like Shia LaBeouf. Check out the uncanny similarities.

Rupert Grint

One of our favorite ginger thespians in Rupert Grint has a doppelganger himself and turned out to be a pretty versatile actor himself despite the fact that he grew up in one of the most historically lucrative movie franchises of all-time in the Harry Potter series. Not only is not strapped for cash, he has also made a name for himself outside of the popular book turned movie franchise by starring in films like Moonwalkers, Cherrybomb, Into The White, and television series, Snatch and Sick Note.

Grint's look-a-like is yet another treasured artist/painter to make the list by the name of Sir David Wilkie who was known for his ability to paint in a variety of styles including nature and historical scenes from his travels throughout Europe and the Middle East to royal and average patron portraits. Rupert Grint has not only made history but so has his doppelganger as well.

Adrien Brody

Adrien Brody is another one of those actors that has the artistic range and truly cares about his craft. He won an Oscar in 2003 for his performance in The Pianist for Best Actor and violated our hopeful soon to be bride in Halle Berry while accepting his award. Despite having the nose of a toucan, Brody has starred in films like Houdini, Manolete, Cadillac Records, The Jacket, the updated King Kong, Predators, Splice, The Experiment, and so many more.

Even though Adrien Brody is a strange and unique looking man it hasn't stopped him from having a rather notorious doppelganger himself by the name of philosopher, John Locke. Locke is often referred to as the 'Father of Liberalism' and supposedly curated the theory of self-identity and knowledge of self which many revolutionists throughout history have referenced through their own movements. Honestly, sharing the looks of such a liberated thinker isn't that bad even if you do have the nose of a tropical bird-like Adrien Brody.


Oprah Winfrey was once considered a failed news reporter and was told that she would amount to nothing in the media industry. Well, whoever thought so probably turning in their grave as Oprah has turned out to be one of the most influential and inspiring media personalities of all-time. Her self-entitled show, Oprah, became a platform for women around the world to feel appreciated and share their views and concerns as women, it also didn't hurt that Oprah became filthy rich through her endeavors and often gave her audience members free gifts. Now, Oprah is running her own television network and is a billionaire.

Oprah also just so happens to share a similar aesthetic to another legendary African-American woman in poet, author, and singer, Maya Angelou who is responsible for influencing a number of artists, poets, and writers with works like And Still I Rise, her series of autobiographies especially the first entitled, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. Ms. Angelou recently passed away in May 2014 and still is referenced to this very day by elite activists and entertainment personalities. Rest in power to the queen, Maya Angelou.

Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis has emerged to be one of the funniest men in Hollywood in recent years and for obvious reasons. His oddly shaped dad bod-inspired pot belly, messy hair, and mannerisms are worth a smirk alone but he has the comedic personality of a superstar which has propelled him into the Hollywood elite. After his breakout performance in the Hangover series which began in 2009, various amounts of movie offers began to roll in including, Due Date alongside Robert Downey Jr., The Campaign, Dinner for Schmucks, and even more serious roles in movies like the critically acclaimed Birdman and A Wrinkle In Time.

Galifianakis is another actor who has quite the prestigious look-a-like in the legendary French designer Louis Vuitton who is renowned for his self-named leather goods brand. Vuitton was originally appointed as a trunk maker for the wife of Napoleon III and became an insanely popularized brand throughout the years and now, Louis Vuitton is one of the biggest and respected brands today. Which makes this doppelganger combination all the more hilarious because people are buying high priced products from a guy who looks like Zach Galifianakis.

Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant was one of those actors who began his acting career in the early 1980s and dominated the '90s and early 2000s which allowed him to earn a Golden Globe for his services but now at the age of 57-years-old, the English actor is enjoying the fruits of his labor and has stepped away from the limelight but still actively works from time to time. Let it be known, Grant has starred in a plethora of movies like About a Boy, Bridget Jones's Diary, Maurice, Nine Months, The Englishman, and Cloud Atlantis.

Grant is also another entertainment personality who favors the aesthetic of Oscar Wilde a la Stephen Fry. Wilde's journey and rise to prominence ended in tragedy as we mentioned previously that after becoming a highly-popularized playwright and personality he was forced to do two years of hard labor in prison and spent the rest of alone in destitute. Fortunately, for Grant, he probably won't have such a tragic ending to his legacy.

Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres has arguably filled the void that Oprah Winfrey left after she left daytime television and is doing one hell of a job entertaining the masses. What many people forget about the television personality is that she was once a dedicated rising actress. Ellen DeGeneres has made appearances in shows and feature films like Will & Grace, The Love Letter, Dr. Dolittle, The Coneheads and of course the Finding Nemo series, and probably her hardest acting role starring in the movie Mr. Wrong [Google it].

Despite Ellen obviously being a woman, she shares a likeness with another historical legend by the name of Henry David Thoreau, who is a known American poet, essayist, philosopher, and abolitionist. Thoreau's essay 'Civil Disobedience' argued that disobedience was just in an unjust state which was used to combat the Fugitive Slave Law. Ellen Degeneres isn't in bad company when it comes to her doppelganger.

Robert Pattinson

All of the young ladies know the dashingly handsome young man on the right as the mysterious vampire Edward from the highly-popularized book series turned movie franchise, Twilight which has grossed multi-billions of dollars since its original release in 2008. His blockbuster performance in the series led to Pattison getting leading roles in films like Remember Me, The Lost City of Z, Bel Ami, Queen of the Desert, Good Time, Damsel, and so many more which has solidified his space as an A-list Hollywood actor.

Well, it looks like a photo has been discovered of an unidentified long lost relative of Pattison and he's just as devilishly handsome and well-dressed as the thespian we've all come to know and love. The thick, dark hair, thick eyebrows, matching jawlines, and doughy eyes definitely scream distant relative and Pattison might want to look into finding out the particulars.

Bruce Willis

When it comes to the silver screen there aren't too many dudes out there that wouldn't want to be as bad a** as Bruce Willis has been throughout his illustrious acting career. As the star of the Die Hard series and movies like Hostage, Armageddon, the terrifying Sixth Sense, Pulp Fiction, The Jackal, Sin City, and his latest venture in the upcoming reboot of Death Wish, Bruce has proven that he was one of the best action stars of this current generation and generations past and he's still going at it at the age of 63-years-old.

Surprisingly, most people don't realize that Bruce Willis and the notorious General Douglas MacArthur look seemingly identical. General MacArthur played a prominent role during World War II and earned the Medal of Honor for his services in the Philippines Campaign. It's literally baffling how similar both General MacArthur and Bruce Willis looks like. Hollywood should consider Willis starring as the General himself in an upcoming WWII film for sure.

Paul Giamatti

Paul Giamatti is probably one of the most aesthetically average looking people to have an extremely successful career in the film industry. Giamatti first big break came in the form of a character by the name of 'Pig Vomit' in the 1997 film, Private Parts, which led him to roles in movies like Saving Private Ryan, the 2001 Planet of the Apes reboot, The Illusionist, the critically acclaimed film The Truman Show, The Hangover II, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Straight Outta Compton, and Cinderella Man which earned him an Oscar nominee for Best Supporting Actor.

Not only is Giamatti one hell of an actor, he also favors the most well-known playwright of all-time, William Shakespeare. And if you've suffered the experience of reading some mediocre literature through grade school, it was a relief when the subject of Shakespeare became a part of the curriculum. From Romeo & Juliet to Othello to Hamlet, the guy was an amazing writer and with his horseshoe balding pattern looks a lot like Paul Giamatti.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt is another actor that the ladies drool over and wouldn't mind shooting their shot at and for obvious reasons, the guy's handsome. Pitt got his big break in Hollywood after landing a role in the slasher film, Cutting Class which led to him getting a role in the movie, Legends of the Fall, that ultimately helped him earn his very first Best Actor Golden Globe Award. Brad also starred in the cult classic Fight Club as well as films like Inglorious Basterds, Troy, the Ocean's series, World War Z, Moneyball, and so many more.

Despite the fact that Pitt might be extremely accomplished, he is not as impactful to society as his doppelganger Hermann Rorschach, a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst that developed the inkblot test in order to measure the unconscious parts of a particular person's personality. The test is referred to the Rorschach Test has been modified and is still used to this very day to analyze psychotic and neurological disorders to this very day. Not only does the dude have brains, he looks like Brad Pitt so we're sure he cleaned up with the ladies during his hay day.

Michael Cera

Michael Cera represents every awkward teenager that struggled with social acceptance amongst his peers to this very day, even though the guy is actually 30-years-old and is still built like a prepubescent child. Michael Cera has been in a plethora of recent cult classic hits like the hit television show, Arrested Development, Super Bad, Juno, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Year One, Youth in Revolt, This is the End, Sausage Party, and more. Cera has built a lane for himself that is undeniable and will probably take on more serious roles as he continues to develop as an actor.

Unfortunately, for Cera, he shares an extremely accurate resemblance to the mother of one of the world's many antichrists in Klara Hitler, the mother of Adolf Hitler. We're not sure who looks like who but if Adolf thought that his mother was an example of the 'pure race' he was attempting to achieve with his actions, he should have gone back to the drawing board. No offense to Michael Cera, of course. We're huge fans.

Michael Phelps

Some years ago, Michael Phelps was catching hell and being shamed by the mainstream media and the general public after footage and photos of the swimmer surfaced of him smoking marijuana out of a bong. Well, if you happen to be the most decorated Olympian of all-time with a record-breaking total of 28 Olympic total, a record-breaking 16 medals in individual events, and a record-breaking 13 gold medals in individual events we can't blame you for wanting to party and celebrate your successes. Majority of people out there haven't won anything in life yet have the ability to swim a single lap, so there's that.

Michael Phelps does have an accomplished doppelganger of his very own by the name of Charles Lamb, an English essayist, poet, and antiquarian best known for his works entitled Essays of Elia and the children's book Tales of Shakespeare co-authored by his sister, Maria Lamb. Some consider Lamb the most lovable figure in English literature. Both Michael Phelps and Charles Lamb will live on for an eternity for the hard work that they have put in.

Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart began his career as a standup comedian which later led him to being in front of the camera and made cameos in movies like Big Daddy, The Faculty, Rose Water, the cult classic Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Playing By Heart, and a personal favorite Half Baked. In 1999, Jon Stewart got the hosting gig for the satirical news show, The Daily Show, and became a household name for his thoughts on the socio-economic climate. In 2015, Stewart stepped down from the hosting position and has been enjoying the fruits of his labor ever since.

What many might not know is that Stewart has a rather doppelganger of his own in the form of American Congregationalist clergyman, Henry Ward Beecher. A man known for his support of the abolition of slavery. Not only was Beecher a well-known activist, he used his sources to buy and free slaves as well as purchase arms for the Union during the Civil War. Not to mention, he was also quite the ladies man as he went to trial for adultery in 1875 which resulted in a hung jury. Both Stewart and Beecher have had a positive impact on society.

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys has one of the most mesmerizing voices of this generation and she has the platinum plaques and record sales to prove it. Alicia Keys was raised by her mother in New York and grew up without the presence of her father. By the age of 12-years-old, Keys was writing and composing her own music and now she sits on top of six solo studio albums, fifteen Grammys, seventeen NAACP Awards, nine Billboard Awards, and seven BET Awards. Not to mention, Ms. Keys is doing a lot of philanthropic work as the co-founder of the HIV/AIDS non-profit organization entitled, Keep a Child Alive.

It just so happens that Alicia Keys looks a lot like another singer by the name of Lena Horne who not only was an artist in the entertainment industry but fought for causes herself and was a participating civil rights activist. Despite having so much success, Horne found herself blackballed from the industry due to her political activism but will forever be remembered for both her artistry, beauty, and activism a la Alicia Keys.

Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas might be 73 years of age but that isn't stopping him from being cast into some of today's most popular films. It's nearly impossible to remain relevant in any industry for five decades but yet, Douglas has achieved to do so in the cut-throat entertainment industry. Michael Douglas got his big break on the popularized television series The Streets of San Francisco which has propelled his career and landed him roles in films like The War of the Roses, The American President, The Game, Fatal Attraction, Basic Instinct, Falling Down, Last Vegas, and most recently Marvel's Ant-Man series.

Unfortunately, Michael Douglas has a rather interesting doppelganger that he looks more and more like as he ages in the first president of the United States of America, George Washington. One of the nation's Founding Fathers, the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War and the man who never told a lie, which is a total lie by the way, does favor Michael Douglas so any movie studios out there want to write us a casting check for the next Washington movie, don't be shy.

Charlie Sheen

Watching the downward spiral of Charlie Sheen go down, somehow became a spectacle and entertaining for most mainstream media outlets but for us watching the once superstar implode and make bad decision after bad decision was disheartening as Sheen clearly was and still is in need of help. That doesn't mean that Sheen doesn't still have die-hard fans especially being that he starred in films like Platoon, The Hot Shots! Series, Red Dawn and of course, his most notorious television series Two and a Half Men and latest television series, Anger Management.

Many might not know of Charlie Sheen's scarily similar look-a-like in abolitionist, John Brown, who was anti-slavery and led several armed revolts killing pro-slavery supporters. In 1895, Brown wanted to start a slave liberation movement through violence which ultimately led to a lot of his men either being killed or fleeing the scene in West Virginia after being taken out by U.S. Marines, Brown was tried for treason and hung. These two men might share a face and Sheen might be praised for doing the wrong thing while Brown was considered insane for over a century and almost scrubbed from the history books. Talk about agenda, eh.

David Duchovny

There's no denying that David Duchovny was on top of the world in the '90s as conspiracy theorist, Fox Mulder of the hit sci-fi television series The X-Files which lasted a total of eleven seasons which originally ran from September 1993 to May 2002 and later returned in January 2016 and officially ended in March of 2018 after dropping two shortened seasons. Duchovny was also a part of a lesser known series in the '90s entitled the Red Shoe Diaries and later rose to prominence once again as the womanizer, Hank Moody, the HBO television series, Californication which became wildly popular throughout the late 2000s as the series ended in 2014.

David Duchovny does have a rather unique look and his particular doppelganger might be a reach but he does share a similar facial aesthetic to this unidentified Ukrainian World War II photographer. Which might not be a coincidence at all being that Duchovny's paternal grandparents are from Russian Poland, which is now just Poland, and Berdychiv, Russian Empire, which is now Ukraine. There's a strong possibility that Duchovny and this brave photographer are in fact related.

Bill Murray

Bill Murray is another one of those actors that has transcended time and become an immortal public figure in the film industry. There's no denying that Murray has had one of the best runs of all-time by starring in films like Groundhog Day, Stripes, Caddyshack, Lost in Translation, the cult classic Ghostbusters series, and more recent films like Rock The Kasbah, Aloha, the 2016 reboot of The Jungle Book and 2018's animated film, Isle of Dogs. At 67-years-old Murray is still killing the box office and there's always been something admirable about the Emmy Award-winning actor.

Surprisingly, not many have put two and two together and compared the visual similarities between both Bill Murray and Edgar Allan Poe who is considered a central figure in the realm of Romanticism and poems like The Raven, To Helen, and The Sleeper are referenced in pop culture and used in educational curriculum to this very day. Both Poe and Murray will live on for centuries to come.

Florence Welch

English singer, Florence Welch, wasn't always one of the most popular international musical acts, matter of fact, after being encouraged by her grandmother to begin pursuing music, she witnessed her parents get divorced which resulted in her mother eventually marrying her next door neighbor and also witnessed her grandmother, who had bipolar disorder, commit suicide at the tender age of 13-years-old. Her band Florence + The Machine's career was launched when their debut album, Lungs, became critically acclaimed and she's thrived in the music realm ever since.

Coincidentally, Florence Welch and another strong woman happen to be doppelgangers, who goes by the name of Joan of Arc who helped free the French from British control. Unfortunately, Joan was apprehended and handed over to the English in 1430 and the following year, Joan of Arc was burned at the stake at the tender age of 19-years-old. Florence might have had a tremulous youth but at least she didn't go out like Joan.

Halle Berry

Even at the age of 51-years-old, there's no stopping us from wanting to drink Halle Berry's bath water or sniffing her seat after she gets up but despite her appealing looks, Berry has struggled in her personal life with men. Fortunately for her, she hasn't struggled as much with her lucrative acting career, Halle Berry has starred in films like Gothika, Perfect Stranger, 007: Die Another Day, Kidnap, Swordfish, Monster's Ball, and of course the X-Men series where she stars as the mutant superhero Storm.

Luckily, past generations have had their own version of Halle Berry with her doppelganger, Dorothy Dandridge who not only was a renowned actress but a strong vocalist who performed at notorious venues like the Cotton Club and the Apollo Theater. Dandridge was also the first African-American woman to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress which earned her a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Unfortunately, Ms. Dandridge died of mysterious circumstances at the age of 42. Both Berry and Dandridge will forever be known for their beauty and talent.
