The German word “doppelgänger” means, in a rough translation, someone who looks like someone else, but is not related to them. Some people believe that there’s a doppelgänger for everyone in the world – but sometimes, these people have a double in their own industry, and when they’re celebrities, it’s hard not to notice!
Amy Adams and Isla Fisher, for instance, constantly get mistaken for each other – but they’re far from being the only ones.
Let’s take a look at these uncanny celebrity pairs!
Sara Hyland and Mila Kunis
Sarah Hyland and Mila Kunis are undeniably similar.
When That ’70s Show star, Kunis, met Modern Family’s Hyland at the 2010 Golden Globe awards, she approached her and told her she sometimes pretends to be her because it makes her feel young!
Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley
It’s no coincidence that both Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman are successful actresses.
Portman, who was an established actress by the time she got around to filming Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, needed a double for one of her scenes, and the 12-year-old Knightley was chosen precisely because of her similar appearance.
Since then, both women have gone on to star in iconic films like Black Swanand Love Actually.
Johnny Depp and John Mayer
Johnny Depp has made a career out of his acting talent, coupled with his unique look – so it’s a good thing John Mayer is a musician, not an actor, or he might have stepped on some toes.
