Nov 20, 2015 10:58
Hollywood's a big place, and surprisingly there are a lot of actors who look like other...actors too! Here's a list of some of the most frequently misidentified stars who get mistaken as someone famous. Check it out:
Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg
These two BFFs couldn't be more alike; they both hail from Boston and are 42 year old action movie stars. They even made a pact to oblige eager fans by signing autographs as their doppelgangers.
Nelson Mandela and Morgan Freeman
There's a reason why Morgan Freeman was the obvious choice to play Mandela in the 2009 film, Invictus. After the famous South African politician's death in 2013, a photo of the actor's face incorrectly printed on a billboard meant to memorialize the deceased icon blew up on Twitter.
Glenn Close and Meryl Streep
Both icons are the most prestigious and well-respected actresses in Hollywood, and there have been rumors that they've had to fight it out to win roles. But these doppelgangers keep their catfights classy: Meryl was even quoted saying, "On behalf of Glenn Close and me, who are often mistaken for each other, there should be no illusions… I adore her."
Kevin Spacey and John Cusack
During one unfortunate interview, a college student mistakenly thought Cusack was the star of American Beauty, when it was actually Spacey who won a Best Actor Academy Award for the role of Lester Burnham.
Chace Crawford and Ian Somerhalder
The reason these teen heartthrobs get mistaken for each other has to do with their chiseled features, piercing baby blues, sky-high cheekbones and tousled hair:
Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman
Knightley once stood in as a double for Portman in Star Wars, and she hasn't lived it down since. Knightley has
recounted many stories of being chased down in airports while being called
Natalie the entire time.
Timothy Olyphant and Josh Duhamel
According to Duhamel, he often gets mistaken for other celebs, including Olyphant (star of The Crazies), Jackass’s Johnny Knoxville, and even Ryan Seacrest.
Erika Christensen and Julia Stiles
With their feminine features and curly blonde hair, there's simply no denying that these two highly respected actresses do bear an uncanny resemblance to each other.
Michelle Williams and Carey Mulligan
For her role in The Great Gatsby, Milligan got a pixie haircut which was almost uncanny to Williams' trademark pixie hairdo.
Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland
Both might have started out their careers during their teens, but that's about the only thing they have in common. Kunis is best known as the "lovable but steamy starlet" through her roles in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Black Swan; while Hyland's image is more wholesome thanks to her roles in Disney movies and Modern Family.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Javier Bardem
Morgan couldn’t be more different than the Spanish born Bardem, but you have to admit that they could still pass off as each other's stunt-doubles.
Michael Cera and Jesse Eisenberg
Both are known for their "awkward," offbeat roles, so it's understandable that they often get mixed up for one another.
Dafoe and Denis Leary
Despite decades of being in the business, these two veteran actors still have to deal with celebrity mix-ups. According to Leary, he was once allowed inside a strip club for free simply because the bouncer thought he was "the guy from Spiderman."
Chad Smith and Will Ferrell
During a reddit AMA, Ferrell joked that they were both actually the same person. They famously acknowledged their uncanny resemblance after appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show in a drum-off.
Zoe Saldana and Thandie Newton
Despite appearing in massive blockbuster hits, Saldana still gets mistaken with other celebrities, particularly Pursuit of Happyness star Thandie Newton and Scandal star Kerry Washington.

You don’t have to be the same as everyone else – these gorgeous alternatives will give you a fashion edge, as well as being perfectly practical. Read more
If you’re a regular gym user, you won’t have failed to notice how most – if not all – of the other people working out around you are listening to music. You probably do it too. What is it about music, though that makes a work out so much more palatable? What does it do to our brains – and our bodies – to help us push through? Read more
When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
