26 Celebrities Who Look So Alike, You’ll Be Surprised They’re Not Related

year ago

It was Bryce Dallas Howard who acted in Jurassic world, not Jessica Chastain. Babel starred Brad Pitt, not Benicio Del Toro. It all sounds obvious, but still, these and a handful of other celebrities get confused with each other all the time. Some of them make fun of it and some use it to their advantage.

Bright Side gathered pairs of celebrities who are being called each other’s names more often than they’d probably like. Spoiler alert: some of them make funny jokes out of it!

1. Chace Crawford and Ian Somerhalder

Cheekbones, eyebrows, and cute smiles make these 2 actors look like siblings. And the fact that both of these pretty men are the stars of popular series doesn’t help either. Chase played the rich kid in Gossip Girl and Ian portrays a beautiful vampire in The Vampire Diaries. So if you don’t really keep up with pop culture, these 2 can be easily mistaken for each other.

2. Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard

Looks like both brilliant actresses are tired of being compared, but they still handle it with humor. Jessica takes funny posts on Twitter and Facebook and Bryce sends the love back on Instagram. Speaking of humor, here is a full video showing Bryce lip-synching during a dubsmash. If you forget who you’re watching, it becomes pretty clear by the end.

3. Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland

Mila Kunis actually doesn’t mind being confused with Sarah Hyland. It makes her feel younger. As for Hyland herself, she takes it with humor and always has a joke prepared for reporters. Once, she was on the red carpet being called Mila Kunis and was asked questions about Black Swan. She was tempted to scream, “Natalie Portman is a bad kisser!” She held back though.

4. Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill

The 2 movie stars have very similar bone structures and many of their facial features are also very much alike. Even though their career choices seem to be different, someone could surely confuse one for the other.

5. Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester

The similarity of the 2 actresses was spotted for the first time after they stood side by side in the movie Roommate. During the press tour, since both women liked to wear similar haircuts and clothes, it became a thing.

6. Will Ferrell and Chad Smith

One of them has part ownership of Los Angeles FC, and the other was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The question is, who is who? Well, to the left is Will Ferrell, actor and comedian, and to the right is the drummer of RHCP. The only way we figured this out was by watching the drum-off.

7. Carla Bruni and Bella Hadid

The similarity was confirmed by the former French First Lady. Carla Bruni has even written on her Instagram, “Do I have a hidden daughter?” She even added a heart at the end, so both supermodels are okay with looking alike.

8. Katharine Mcphee and Rachel Bilson

The finalist of American Idol season 5 and the star of The O.C. series know each other and have a few pictures together where they truly look like they were separated at birth. But in the time of their highest popularity, there wasn’t too much social media yet, so it never became a thing. We decided to compare modern photos of these 2 ladies and the results are still incredible.

9. Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro

These guys have the same lips, same nose, and slightly different eyes. Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro become especially similar looking when they make a certain serious facial expression. Both men have BAFTA Awards and are brilliant actors, but when they’re on screen, they can’t be mistaken for each other. They talk differently, walk differently, and definitely act differently.

10. Bob Saget and Stephen Colbert

Those 2 men who are also not related, look very similar and always manage to have stylish glasses and a very subtle sense of humor. They also prefer a classic style, as it gives a special feeling of trust to the audience.

11. Natalie Portman and Millie Bobby Brown

These 2 ladies have been compared to each other multiple times and not only because of their similar appearances. Both Millie and Natalie started their careers early and with serious and complicated roles many adult actors couldn’t handle. And they both completely nailed it!

12. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Javier Bardem

Jeffrey D. Morgan says that he absolutely doesn’t mind being mistaken for Javier Bardem. “He is a very attractive man and super talented actor,” he told one interviewer. As for Javier, we don’t think he would mind either. He’s known to have a very good sense of humor and self-irony.

13. Amy Adams and Isla Fisher

After these 2 beautiful redheaded women made a movie together, we definitely know there are 2 of them! Anyway, Amy Adams says she loves all the Isla-Amy confusions, so let’s continue to confuse who’s who.
