Hollywood has witnessed a lot of talent over the years and many of them have even left a resounding impact on the Hollywood film fraternity. But sometimes fate plays a very cunning plot with the viewers and in some cases even with the actors themselves. There is a theory that has been around for some time which claims that in a pair of every 135 people, there is one pair that is a complete doppelganger of a person in terms of facial features. These individuals may have different physiques or heights, but the facial features are a replica. Similarly, Hollywood has had its own set of doppelgangers and it seems almost as if they are related.
Amy Adams & Isla Fisher
The resemblance between these two is uncanny, especially after 2019 when Isla Fisher got rid of her ginger locks conforming to the fans that indeed she and Amy are two different people. The resemblance is far too noticeable if seen at a glance.
Jessica Chastain & Bryce Dallas Howard
In one particular incident, Bryce Dallas Howard’s father Ron Howard crossed paths with Jessica Chastain and mistakenly took Jessica as Bryce. At that time, he was with one of Bryce’s friends and claimed to her that he may have just seen Bryce walk past him.
Jillian Bell & Morgan Turner
Jillian Bell from “2 Jump Street” and Morgan Turner from “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” pose a striking resemblance if it weren’t for their height. If both of these damsels were to be in front of you sitting on a table, you would go crazy just looking at them.
Jennifer Garner & Christa B. Allen
Jennifer Garner will very easily qualify as Christa B. Allen’s mother any time of the day. However, the surprising fact is that both of them are not blood-related. But fulfill all the criteria to be called each other’s perfect doppelganger.
Idina Menzel & Lea Michele
The identical twins look alike are very different individuals. With a difference of almost 15 years, Lea Michele is the younger one. Both Idina & Michele’s parents are also from different parts of the world. Lea’s mother is Italian and her father is a Sephardic Jew, whereas Idina was born in an Ashkenazi Jewish family.
Henry Cavill & Matt Bomer
Both these actors have garnered quite a lot of attention over the past few years. And no, it wasn’t for their part in movies or serials, but rather for their striking resemblance to each other. Both the actors somehow decided to go for the same profession except Matt Bomer started back in 2009, just 4 years before Henry hit the silver screen.
Gabrielle Union & Ajiona Alexus
Both these doppelgangers came together on the sets of ‘Breaking In’ and took the internet by storm. Union plays Alexus’s mother in the movie, and if it weren’t for facts no one could have figured it out that Union and Alexus are not related. Alexus considers and looks up to Union as an elder sister and would always turn to her for advice.
Daniel Radcliffe & Elijah Wood
The wizard from Hogwarts and the Hobbit from the Lord of rings series seemed to be twin brothers from the same mother. Both the actors on numerous occasions have been confused for each other, and ironically have the same response when someone does mistake the one for another, and the response is a simple ‘No’. Both these talented actors on several occasions have encountered each other’s fans and clarified the look-alike mix-up with a simple nonchalant ‘No’.
Michael Gambon & Ian McKellen
This again turned out to be a clash of the mighty wizards; fans have often confused and mixed-up Dumbledore with Gandalf on numerous occasions. Gambon plays the headmaster in the Harry Potter series, whereas Ian McKellen plays the mighty Wizard Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings. Both have been around for a very long time but had themselves mistaken only once they had reached their primes.
Katy Perry & Zooey Deschanel
Katy Perry in an interview revealed that earlier in life she had pretended to be Zooey Deschanel when she landed in Los Angeles, to get into clubs. Katy also revealed that people who knew her before she shot to fame, had named her ‘Fooey’ which was slang for ‘fake Zooey’. Zooey Deschanel was relieved when she met Katy because she had heard about this girl called Katy who looked like her but was worried about how she looked and was relieved when she met Katy and found her to be beautiful.
