There are 7.6 billion people on earth so it makes sense that we might have lookalikes out there, but the doppelganger phenomenon is strangely prevalent in the celebrity world.
Have you ever seen Zooey Deschanel without bangs? Dead ringer for Katy Perry. Or perhaps you’ve realized that Bella Hadid and Jennifer Lawrence have the exact. same. eyes. Maybe there’s more to it than just coincidence. Maybe some of these celebrity doppelgängers share traits that we as a society find beautiful, so it makes sense that they’re Hollywood’s leading ladies. Or maybe they have the same plastic surgeon? Either way, there are tons of celebrity lookalikes out there, so let me break it down for you.
Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel
It just wouldn’t be a celebrity doppelgänger list without these two. These American beauties look like identical twins, although I’m sure Katy’s recent hairstyles prevent anyone from confusing her with Zoe, who still loves her bold bangs.
Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain
These lovely redheads don’t just get mixed up because of their hair color. They share so many similar features, including their green eyes and flawless porcelain skin they’ve earned their place on our list of favorite celebrity doppelgängers.
Nina Dobrev and Victoria Justice
Out of all of the celebrity doppelgänger, this one gets me the most. Besides being identical, these two young American actresses play a lot of similar roles, so it’s easy to mix them up. They’ve also been compared to Emmanuelle Chriqui and Melanie Iglesias. Something about the big brown eyes and sleek dark hair I guess!
Bella Hadid and Jennifer Lawrence
This pair may not seem like obvious doppelgänger, but their striking features are incredibly comparable. With the same color hair and similar makeup applied to their sultry eyes, they almost look like sisters!
Ashley Graham and Eva Mendes
This one makes sense because both Ashley Graham and Eva Mendes are my celebrity girl crushes. The eyes, the lips, the perfect skin. I’m in love, and I’m sure you are as well.
Amy Adams and Isla Fisher
Here’s another lovely redheaded duo who are often confused with one another. Even Lady Gaga mixed the two and started a conversation with Isla at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars after party thinking she was Amy! Although Isla usually corrects people when this happens, she let it slip this time.
Zoe Saldana and Thandie Newton
American actress Zoe Saldana and British actress Thandie Newton look so alike that they also experienced a Gaga moment. As Thandie explained on The Graham Norton Show, fellow Brit Victoria Beckham struck up a conversation with her at a Soul Cycle, all the while thinking she was Zoe! Funny, I’m also commonly mistaken for a celebrity after a good spin class.
Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester
This is another beautiful brunette duo that leaves most people puzzled. I mean, they have such similar facial features I can’t blame anyone for confusing the two, which I’m assuming happens all the time.
Jordin Sparks and America Ferrera
I’ve never realized how much these two look alike, but now that I’ve studied their faces for longer than I’d like to admit, I can confirm that Jordin Sparks and America Ferrera are definitely doppelgängers.
These gorgeous doppelgängers are probably used to being confused with their lookalikes, but luckily, they’re very kind and understanding. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go lay down and give my eyes some rest.
Sarah Hyland and Mila Kunis
Umm are these two twins? These doe-eyed beauties have such similar features it’s no wonder they’re well-known doppelgängers. I could definitely see them playing sisters on the big screen.
