Top 20 Celebrity Lookalikes


Welcome to WatchMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 20 Celebrity Lookalikes.

For this list, we’ll be looking at famous people who share an uncanny resemblance.

Have you ever confused one of these celebrities for the other? Let us know in the comments.

#20: John Mulaney & Grant Gustin

When comparing celebrity lookalikes, this pairing probably isn’t the first you’ll think of. But from the right angle and in the right lighting, the stand-up comedian and TV’s very own Barry Allen start to look very similar. In a 2018 appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” John Mulaney brought up the resemblance, saying he’s been mistaken several times by fans of “The Flash.” And it’s not super hard to see – with their comparably-shaped faces, boyish looks, and side-parted brunette hair, Mulaney could easily pass off as Grant Gustin’s older brother. If there’s anyone at The CW watching this, there’s an easy role to fill on the next season of “The Flash”!


#19: Evan Rachel Wood & Rachel Brosnahan

These incredibly talented actresses not only share a striking resemblance, they also share a name! Emmy Award-winning actress Rachel Brosnahan leads the hilarious pack on Amazon Prime Video’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” while Evan Rachel Wood plays the part of a badass android on “Westworld.” Both actresses share a particular porcelain look that’s very fitting for their best-known roles, and makes them a pretty uncanny pair. Their resemblance has long been pointed out by fans on the internet, most notably following the release of the trailer for “I’m Your Woman,” which stars Brosnahan. We’re not suggesting they’re the same person, but we have yet to see the both of them in the same place at the same time. Just saying.


#18: Amanda Seyfried & Gemma Ward

From the blonde hair and heart-shaped face to their big green eyes, there are certainly more than just a few features that these young women share. Amanda Seyfried is a successful Hollywood actress, widely known for appearing in films like “Mean Girls” and “Mamma Mia!”, while Gemma Ward rocks the runway as a highly sought-after supermodel. The similarities between both women transcend just physical features, because Ward’s birthday is the 3rd of November, and Seyfried’s is the 3rd of December! If we didn’t know any better, we might think it was just one person standing in front of a mirror.


#17: Mila Kunis, Vanessa Hudgens, & Sarah Hyland

There are probably a gazillion Hollywood actresses with long brunette locks, striking eyes, and a slender physique, but this trio seems to wear this look in a very distinct way. Both Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland are beloved comedy actresses, with the former known for her roles on “That ‘70s Show” and “Ted,” and the latter recognized as Haley Dunphy on the hit comedy show “Modern Family.” Even though “High School Musical’s” Vanessa Hudgens may not necessarily be a funnywoman herself, her delectable personality puts her right up there with the other two actresses. We honestly wouldn’t be surprised to learn that it was either Kunis or Hyland playing opposite Hudgens in “The Princess Switch.”


#16: Austin Butler & Chord Overstreet

One plays Elvis Presley in the eponymous 2022 biopic, the other currently stars in Apple TV’s “Acapulco.” Both are highly underrated actors with a very comparable look. The two emerging stars are known for their similarly-styled sandy blond hair, although Butler now rocks a black updo due to his portrayal of the "King of Rock and Roll". Their deep-set blue eyes, nearly identical mouth shape, and habitual smolders make it extremely difficult not to confuse one for the other. While both gentlemen had beginnings taking on guest roles in Nickelodeon sitcoms, they have now grown to become leading men in their own right.

#15: Kristen Stewart & Teresa Palmer

These stars clearly have a thing for the supernatural. One’s world-famous for portraying a girl who falls in love with a vampire, whereas the other gained recognition for playing a girl who warms up to a zombie. Their characters’ shared love for mythical creatures aside, both actresses are so freakishly similar, they often get mistaken for one another. They both have oblong-shaped faces, a pointed chin, and light eyes. Although they’ve worn different hairstyles over the years, there was a point where they both had long blonde hair, which made them look even more alike! Teresa Palmer is well aware of the resemblance, and has even gone along with a fan who once mistook her for Kristen Stewart.

#14: Victoria Justice & Nina Dobrev

Is Nina Dobrev the teenage sensation from “Victorious”? Did Victoria Justice play the iconic dual role on “Vampire Diaries”? Is this a case of twin sisters separated at birth? Honestly, we’re just as confused as you are. Despite the four-year age difference between the two TV stars, they look so strikingly similar that it’s almost impossible to fathom that they don’t share at least some DNA. More than just their long dark hair, deep brown eyes, and small noses, both actresses also possess an adorable girly energy that’s quite specific to the two of them. Justice even acknowledged their similarities when she introduced Dobrev as her doppelgänger at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards.


#13: Henry Cavill & Matt Bomer

Named TV’s Sexiest Man of 2011, Matt Bomer has been appearing in movies and TV shows since the early 2000s, but only gained significant recognition when he acquired the lead role in the police procedural “White Collar.” With ocean-blues, a chiseled jaw, and slicked-back dark hair, Bomer, fittingly enough, finds a twin in Superman himself: Henry Cavill. Even though Cavill is taller and has a larger build than Bomer, their faces placed side-by-side reveals a glaring likeness between the pair. These two leading men are, not only extremely good-looking actors, but, as it turns out, have also both been deemed Superman material, with Bomer supplying the voice of the titular character in the animated “Superman: Unbound”.


#12: Daniel Radcliffe & Elijah Wood

In the world of fantasy, there might not be a lot that a wizard and a hobbit have in common but, in real life, Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood share so many physical similarities, it’s uncanny. Radcliffe and Wood are best known for their magical leading performances in the “Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings” franchises respectively. When it comes to their physical features, both actors are rather short, have the same pale complexion, piercing blue eyes, brown hair, and a general nerdy vibe. While the resemblance has been noted by many fans online, Radcliffe remains quite the dissenter, claiming that the comparisons seem to be based on just the idea of them, rather than how they actually look.

#11: Kurt Russell & Jeff Bridges

These two are legends of the silver screen, having both spent over six decades in the movie industry with a plethora of memorable roles to their names. Even though they weren’t nearly as indistinguishable earlier in their careers, they seem to have aged up to a point where it can be pretty difficult to tell them apart. Kurt Russell and Jeff Bridges make up the quintessential Western protagonist with their all-important full beards, and silver hair that could probably star in a movie all its own, if we’re being honest. Their resemblance is not lost on them, given that, funnily enough, Bridges has admitted to signing autographs on behalf of Russell.

#10: Jessica Chastain & Bryce Dallas Howard

It’s one thing to share certain similarities with a fellow actor, but when even your own father can’t tell the difference, there may be some questions to ask. That was the case for Bryce Dallas Howard’s dad, director Ron Howard, who confused Jessica Chastain for his own daughter at an Apple Store. We can’t say we blame him though – the two Hollywood stars are almost identical, with heads full of red hair, hazel-green eyes, and radiant smiles. Their uncanny resemblance was the subject of a 2015 viral YouTube musical, which Howard has even lip synced to. The two women are featured in 2011’s “The Help”, and we have a blonde wig to thank for helping us with the distinction.


#9: Henrik Zetterberg & Jared Leto

They say that everyone has a doppelgänger somewhere in the world. Well, sometimes that twin is an Academy Award-winning actor and the frontman of the alternative rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars. While we can’t necessarily prove that former Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg and Jared Leto are related, we definitely have our suspicions. We’re not sure if it’s the sharp jaw, the piercing eyes, or the swept-back hair, but something about these men just makes us want to call “Finding Your Roots” and tell them we’ve found their next case. They may not strike gold but at least we’ll know for sure!


#8: Minka Kelly & Leighton Meester

The 2011 movie “The Roommate” details the lives of two college roommates whose relationship quickly takes a turn down creepy lane and right into obsessive town. This is a film that certainly lives up to its categorization as a psychological thriller, in part due to the apperances of its two leading actresses – Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester – who may just be duplicates of each other. Long hair, brown eyes, and gorgeous smiles that could light up an arena, these ladies seem to have fallen from the very same tree. Beyond their looks, however, Kelly and Meester have also had similar career paths; rising to fame as main characters on teen drama series, then taking on roles in independent films afterwards.


#7: Logan Marshall-Green & Tom Hardy

Although he’s been working since the early 2000s, Logan Marshall-Green hasn’t quite attained the level of name recognition as his Oscar-nominated counterpart, Tom Hardy. With that said, both men have so much in common when it comes to the looks department. From their dark green eyes to the shape of their noses and mouths, it becomes almost impossible to differentiate the two of them. This is purely speculation, but we might just get to see the two of them in the MCU together, given that Hardy plays Venom and Marshall-Green was seen in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” as Shocker, an accomplice of Adrian Toomes.


#6: Javier Bardem & Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Known for their villainous roles, Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have built a particularly terrifying reputation for themselves that’s only bolstered by their menacing looks. Although Bardem hails from the Canary Islands in Spain and Morgan is an American from Seattle, both men share strikingly similar features that have gotten them mixed up since as far back as the mid-2000s. As they have aged over the years, their resemblance has only gotten stronger. Just to clear up any remaining confusion, Bardem played the psychopathic assassin in “No Country for Old Men” and Morgan stars as the bat-wielding villain in “The Walking Dead.” All clear? Now, who played the Winchesters’ dad in “Supernatural”…?


#5: Isla Fisher & Amy Adams

This pairing is one that confuses not only fans, but has left their fellow A-listers puzzled as well. Yet another pair of red-headed actresses on our list, Isla Fisher and Amy Adams prove that two people can be very different but also still be alike in so many ways. Fisher rose to prominence starring in the Australian soap opera “Home and Away” whereas Adams’ breakthrough role came in the 2005 indie film “Junebug” for which she received an Oscar nomination. Even though the actresses have different eye colors and accents originating from opposite ends of the world, their auburn locks and welcoming smiles make them mirror images of each other.


#4: Margot Robbie, Jaime Pressly, Emma Mackey, & Jaime King

Hollywood gets its fair share of celebrity doppelgängers but very rarely does it occur that four famous people can look so indistinguishable – and two of them sharing a first name doesn’t help, either! They’re all blonde, bright-eyed, and absolutely gorgeous with such striking facial similarities that fans have been left utterly dumbfounded at the odds of such an occurrence. While Margot Robbie is the most instantly recognizable one of the bunch, Jaime Pressly, Emma Mackey, and Jaime King have all built their careers mostly through years of work in television. Despite their “copy and paste” features, we’re pretty sure none of them are related, seeing as Robbie is Australian and Mackey is British, while Pressly was born in North Carolina, and King is from Nebraska.


#3: Natalie Portman & Keira Knightley

The Natalie Portman-Keira Knightley resemblance is one that goes as far back as their appearance in the “Star Wars” prequel: “The Phantom Menace.” In the film, a then-unknown Knightley was cast as a decoy for Portman’s Queen Amidala, largely due to their striking similarities. More than two decades and a string of box-office hits later, the two actresses still look so much alike, matching equally in style, beauty, and sophistication. One thing that does set them apart is their acting styles. Where Portman tends to be more grounded, Knightley often opts for the non-conformist angle. But, with their chiseled jawlines, brown eyes, incredibly similar noses, and heart-shaped faces, they’re a duo with too much beauty for just two people.


#2: Katy Perry & Zooey Deschanel

Not only did Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel grow up in the same sunny state of California, they also grew up to look like the same person! For years, the “New Girl” star and the multi-talented singer wore the same long dark hair and bangs, which made them look like carbon copies of one another. Signature hairstyle aside, their big blue eyes, inviting smiles, and quirky fashion sense all played a huge role in their constant comparison. Although Perry has since ditched the bangs and experimented with different looks over the years, she still acknowledges the resemblance, and even poked fun at it by featuring Deschanel in one of her music videos.


FAKEOUT #1: Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen

This pair makes us wonder if they’re really two different people, or just one person moving back and forth very quickly.

Got you there, didn’t we? Of course, we’re just kidding. Our real #1 is…

#1: Will Ferrell & Chad Smith

Ever found yourself at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert and thought you saw actor and comedian Will Ferrell playing the drums? Not to worry, “Saturday Night Live” alum hasn’t ditched comedy for music yet! It’s just that Chad Smith, the drummer for the alternative rock band, is the spitting image of Ferrell. They’re both seasoned performers in their respective fields, with similarly deep set eyes, blond-gray hair, and a general “dad trying his darndest to look cool” vibe. Luckily, the two stars have put their resemblance to good use, playing shows for charity and even making a hilarious appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in matching outfits.
