Lots of celebrities have doppelgangers and sometimes, they look so similar that fans, paparazzi, and even other celebrities can’t even tell them apart. Here are 25 celebrities who have been mistaken for other celebs.
1. Amy Adams and Isla Fisher
Isla Fisher says she’s frequently mistaken for Amy Adams-even by other celebrities. She shared a story with Jimmy Kimmel about being mistaken for the Oscar-winner by Lady Gaga at the 2014 Vanity FairOscar party.
“I was there, all excited and dressed up at the bar and you know, schmoozing with show biz types, and the crowds parted, and there was Lady Gaga,” she said. “And she’s heading right toward me, and she says, ‘Thank you. Your performance in American Hustle, Amy, was-‘ And I’m thinking, Oh my gosh, it’s Lady Gaga. I love her so much. I don’t want to tell her the truth. So I just gracefully thanked her, bowed my head, okay? And then she wants to talk about the performance, and now I’m thinking, I don’t want to be a liar… And then I look over her shoulder and there’s Amy Adams walking into the party. So I’m like, ‘There’s Isla Fisher.’ I said, ‘She’s not even nominated for anything. What’s she doing here?’”
2. Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry
The wide-eyed stars are often confused for each other. In 2009, Deschanel admitted that the situation could be kind of annoying.
“It’s a little bit annoying, to be totally blunt. The only similarity that we have is that we look a little bit alike,” she told MTV. “I have met her before. She seems like a nice person. I’m happy that she’s famous enough now that she’s not going out and being mistaken for me.”
By 2011, however, her attitude about their lookalike status seemed to have softened. She even jokingly suggested on Instagram that they go as the twins from The Shining for Halloween.
3. Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester
Real-life friends Kelly and Meester made an instant connection while shooting a Clearasil commercial back in 2003. When the doppelgängers were later asked to link up for the 2011 psychological thriller The Roommate, Meester jumped at the chance, calling the casting a “no brainer.” Guess she sees the similarities, too.
4. Skylar Astin and Dane Cook
If Astin were to grow a little facial hair, you would swear that he’s Cook. The two actors must get that a lot-Astin posted this picture to Twitter with the caption, “We don’t see it.”
5. Lucy Hale and Selena Gomez
Hale has tweeted about being mistaken for Gomez in public.
“Someone was seriously convinced I was Selena Gomez today and tried to take my phone because they wanted to call justin beiber. Ohh life,” she wrote in 2011.
