I remember watching Enchanted and thinking, “How did they let the crazy girl from Wedding Crashers star in a Disney movie?” I was appalled (Isla Fisher’s character in the movie is totally insane and horny). But then I learned that the actress who played Princess Giselle was actually Amy Adams, not the Shopaholic.
Maybe this has happened to you, where you’re watching a movie or TV show, and suddenly realize the main character looks like somebody else. Hollywood is filled with celebrities who look like other celebrities. Here’s a gallery of some of them.
Katy Perry & Zooey Deschanel
Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel are always getting compared. The thing is, a lot of other celebrities resemble them. Alexis Bledel and Emily Blunt come to mind.
Renee Zellweger & Joey Lauren Adams
I use to think Renee Zellweger starred opposite Adam Sandler in Big Daddy. That is, until I discovered Bridget Jones Diary. That movie cleared up a lot of things for me.
Pee Wee Herman & Alan Cumming
Perhaps Alan Cumming isn’t too pleased about looking like the creepiest man on earth, Pee Wee Herman.
Leighton Meester & Minka Kelly
Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly actually got cast to appear opposite each other in 2011’s The Roommate. Kelly plays a college student and Meester plays her obsessed roommate. Hey, maybe Kelly should guest-star on Gossip Girl as Meester’s long-lost sister or something.
Liam Neeson & Ralph Fiennes
Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes know they look like each other, and they embrace it.
Isla Fisher & Amy Adams
Out of all the celebrities out there, these two are the ones who confuse me the most. They’re both great actresses with sweet faces, and for some time it was hard to tell them apart.
