25 Pairs of Celebrities Who Look Like Identical Twins

No, you’re not seeing double, these are just your favorite celebrities who happen to look like. It does make you wonder though, how two entirely different people  have won almost the same genetic lottery and were blessed with the same amazing features. The surprising fact is that they are not even related and they were born years apart. 

1. Amy Adams and Isla Fisher

The American Hustle star has admitted that she gets called Isla Fisher a lot as people mistake her for the other red-head beauty. They are both actually almost the same age, and they are both in the acting business for years, but other than that, they don’t have much in common, besides their looks of course.

2. Scarlett Johansson and Amber Heard

For sure Scarjo is Cara who likes thin brows vs browbushes. Obviously Scarlett Johansson is older, so Billie looks similar to Scarlett.

3. Carey Mulligan and Michelle Williams

We still struggle to tell these two apart. Both ladies are super-slim, pale and pull off the short blonde cropped do to perfection. Added to which, they are two of the best actresses in town. It’s only fair then that one – Michelle – belongs on US soil and we get to claim ownership of Carey.

4. Elizabeth Banks and Julie Bowen

These two funny women have more in common than meets the eye. They are both in their forties, they are both hysterically funny and they both co-starred on Modern Family. Banks has a recurring role on the hit sitcom as Cam and Mitch’s gal pal, and Bowen, as we all know, is the hilarious matriarch of the Dunphys.

5. Brittany Murphy and Lili Reinhart

Lili Reinhart was all Twitter could talk about Monday night during the Met Gala. People were freaking out when she and her Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse basically confirmed their offscreen relationship by walking the carpet together (which, yay!). And a whole bunch of non-shippers were freaking out because they noticed Reinhart looks exactly like beloved '90s actress Brittany Murphy.

6. Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain

Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain look so alike that even Bryce's father Ron Howard mistook Chastain for the Jurassic World star.

7. Roselyn Sanchez and Nicole Scherzinger

With doe eyes and a killer runway pose, former Pussycat Dolls leader Nicole Scherzinger (right) possesses the same type of magnetism as actress/model Roselyn Sanchez. Roselyn Sanchez and Nicole Sherzinger are so similar that in an online poll more than 75 percent of voters thought they do look alike.

8. Rob Lowe and Ian Somerhalder

Are we seeing double or are is this just a great case of two heartthrobs looking exactly the same? Lowe might be 15 years older than the The Vampire Diaries star, but it doesn’t stop them from looking like twin brothers. What are the odds that both of these actors have beautifully chiseled jaws AND gorgeous blue eyes?

9. Garrett Hedlund and Charlie Hunnam

But when we spend a lot of time together, people would always ask us if we were brothers. But I've never gotten like, 'Are you that guy from 'Friday Night Lights'?” “No,” Garrett confirmed. With a smile, the American actor added, “And I just like that Charlie's response is always, 'Yes, we are brothers.

10. Tom Hardy and Logan Marshall-Green

They were both born in the mid-'70s -- Tom Hardy in London and Logan Marshall-Green in South Carolina (with a twin brother!). But they often seem interchangeable in the roles they've played on both big screen and small. They are not directly related.

11. Emma Watson and Kiernan Shipka

These two actresses have more in common than their bold brows, brown eyes, and sweet smiles. They both play famous witches! Emma Watson got her start in acting playing Hermione in Harry Potter and Kiernan was just cast as Sabrina the Teenage Witch in the highly anticipated Riverdale spinoff The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

12. Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel

Katy Perry had a confession to make to Zooey Deschanel: they look so much alike that the singer actually got into clubs by pretending to be the actress before she was famous! Even before she was famous, Katy Perry was getting the VIP treatment.

13. Kat Dennings and Carly Chaikin

A lot of fans of the American thriller drama TV series, 'Mr. Robot,' have mistaken Carly Chaikin for Kat Dennings. For most of them, it took a while to decipher.

14. Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly

Despite the fact that Jaime is more than a decade older than Margot, their resemblance is quite surprising, to the point where people sometimes think they are the same person. And these comparison photos left you even more confused, there’s proof that they are not the same person. 

15. Nina Dobrev and Emmanuelle Chriqui

Nina Dobrev and Emmanuelle Chriqui share more similarities than their nationalities. Though Dobrev is younger than Chriqui, they have an uncanny resemblance. They are both friends and wish to play sisters if any stories come their way.

16. Josh Duhamel and Timothy Olyphant

People often get confused between Josh Duhamel and Timothy Olyphant. In fact, according to several posts on social media, many are convinced that Josh and Timothy are one and the same.

17. Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe

However, Daniel Radcliffe, who acknowledges some of the physical similarities between him and Wood, doesn't think they look exactly the same: Though we're both short, pale, blue-eyed and brown-haired, I would say that we don't exactly look alike. But the idea of us is exactly the same.

18. Amber Stevens West and Vanessa Morgan

Though these two celebrities look quite similar to each other, largely due to their high foreheads, they both have distinctive life and career. In fact, they don’t even share their nationality as Vanessa is a Canadian, while Amber is an American.  

19. Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Plenty of us frequently get told that we look just like a famous star. However, having a celebrity doppelganger isn't just reserved for us normal folks. Even the celebs themselves sometimes have a fellow star who they resemble.

20. Dax Shepard and Zach Braff

Dax Shepard and Zach Braff were in denial when their respective fans claimed that they looked alike. Braff also noted his similarities to Shepard last year when he shared a face swap photo of himself and Shepard that was taken by Bell, a few years back — and the two looked nearly identical. 

21. Zac Efron and Garrett Clayton

Garrett Clayton has been getting compared to Zac Efron for years, long before he landed the role of Link Larkin in Hairspray Live!. In fact, the 25-year-old actor has previously shot down the idea that they're anything alike, despite now having played the same character. "People compare us so much.

22. Sarah Hyland and Mila Kunis

These doe-eyed beauties have something in common: They both grew up starring in hit family sitcoms. Sarah plays Haley Dunphey in Modern Family while Mila starred in the '90s smash TV show about another decade, That '70s Show.

23. Matt Damon and Jesse Plemons

While they certainly look related, they are just two similar-looking white men with fuller faces. Many fans even believe Matt Damon starred as Captain Robert Daly in “USS Callister,” the first episode of the fourth series of anthology series Black Mirror.

24. Thandie Newton and Zoë Saldana

We're friends. So we're sisters,” Saldana added. This isn't the first time Saldana has shared the silly story. In 2014, she told The Hollywood Reporter that her mom had once seen a poster for Newton's 2004 movie Crash and thought it was her daughter.

25. Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer

Fact: Henry Cavill & Matt Bomer Are Not The Same. Hollywood is weighed down with an abundance of striking, blue-eyed, dark-haired men at the moment, not that I'm complaining. Case in point: The Man From U.N.C.L.E. ... Because Cavill has a near-identical, non-biological Hollywood twin.
