A Gallery Of Celebrities Who Look Like Other Celebrities

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.

    I wonder when they will reveal the twist and admit that the real JGL died in a car accident 5 years ago, Heath Ledger faked his death, got a facelift and is now posing as him.

  • Nuala

    What about Carey Mulligan from Drive and Michelle Williams from Blue Valentine? I always thought it was kind of funny that they both played the love interest of Ryan Gosling.

  • Robert

    I don’t see the Neeson/Fiennes one. Fiennes and Bradley Cooper, however…

  • Deke

    I can see their eyes being similar, but otherwise Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal look nothing alike to me, especially if you scrap the beards.

  • GrandWazoo

    I disagree with so many of these. There were only two or three sets that I would say come close. Katy Perry/Zooey Notgoingtotryandspellherlastname, Javier Bardem/Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Lea Michelle/Idina Menzel. Really, the only ones that are too close to call are Bardem and Morgan

  • Mel K

    Don’t forget to add Lizzy Caplan to the Zooey/Katy list.

  • Alec

    I’m likely alone in this one, but the two that always take me a moment to keep straight are Jesse Eisenberg and Michael Cera.

  • selkie

    Idk, I think that Chase Crawford looks more like the Hemsworth brothers…

  • Pierce

    How about Jason Bateman and Nathan Fillion?

  • Yautja

    Elias Koteas and Chris Meloni?

  • Angelina

    Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman

  • Steve2

    There’s actually 2 porn stars that looks like Leighton Meester even more. Names are Tori Black and Allie Haze.

    They’ve done a scene together.

  • TSimps

    Teresa Palmer and Kristen Stewart, I know I can’t be the only one who sees this! haha

  • mjlaxnmd

    Max von Sydow and Christopher Plummer

  • EspyPsyche

    Emily Osment and Carrie Underwood perhaps? They look more alike than Maguire/Gyllenhall or Neeson/Fienne.
