There’s always that one observant person who’ll bring up that person A and person B resemble each other. It’s an even bigger deal when they look like a celebrity, and later turn viral on social media. A perfect example is the Filipina Chloë Grace Moretz doppelgänger.
This doesn’t just stop with regular people. It’s also common between celebrities and sometimes up-and-coming models. We’ve listed a few that people have pointed out in the past, and no, we’re not including mother-daughter lookalikes because that’s a dead giveaway.
Rihanna and Andele Lara
I first saw Andele Lara on beauty vlogger PatrickStarrr’s Snapchat when he did a Fenty Beauty tutorial with her. I had to do a double-take because I legitimately thought she was Rihanna. Many netizens freaked out, and outlets like Refinery29 also took notice. Another similarity they have is that they’re both born in the Caribbean: Andele is from Haiti and Rihanna is from Barbados. They might be long lost cousins for all we know.
Finn Wolfhard and Ezra Miller
Another popular topic online is casting Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard as Ezra Miller’s younger self or brother in a film. Both of them have great acting skills so maybe a casting director might pick up on it. Feel free to also search Twitter for side-by-side photos of the two because the resemblance is uncanny.
Millie Bobbie Brown and Winona Ryder
Ever since Stranger Things picked up last year, many have noted how Millie Bobby Brown looks like a young Winona Ryder. (Think: Susanna Kaysen in Girl, Interrupted.) Even Millie herself acknowledged that they’re “secret doppelgängers.” Can they play mom and daughter in a film too?
Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman
When I watched Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, I thought Queen Amidala and Padme were both played by Natalie Portman; that movie magic was at play. Turns out, the decoy Queen Amidala was actually Keira Knightley. They look so alike that Keira often gets mistaken for Natalie and people would ask to take photos with her.
Rachel Peters and Solenn Heussaff
We previously asked Rachel Peters about her resemblance to Solenn Heussaff and she said she felt honored by the comment. “I haven’t met Solenn. I would love to meet her though,” Rachel said. “I’ve met a lot of her friends and they all say I look like her. I don’t know why!” Someone make this meet-up happen please!
Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry
The distinct doll-like eyes, jet black hair, and porcelain skin—all of these make up Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry’s features. For a time, people would always put their photos next to each other (plus other celebrities with the same look) and with the caption, “Someone’s dad has some explaining to do.” Now, it’s easier to tell them apart since Katy now has a blonde pixie cut.
Amy Adams and Isla Fisher
During a guesting at Jimmy Kimmel Live, Isla Fisher issued a lighthearted PSA that she’s not Amy Adams. She said that people, including Lady Gaga, often confuse her for Amy. She also admitted that she doesn’t correct people sometimes. We blame their red hair and how similar their characters are in Enchanted and Confessions of a Shopaholic.
