Actresses Zoe Saldana (40) and Thandie Newton (46) are so similar, that even Saldana’s own mother is sometimes confused. The American actress says this week in the ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’. “I sighed: when are you going to understand that I am not Thandie Newton?” The two are by no means the only celebrities that resemble each other so hard that fans sometimes have to watch twice.
“My mother still thinks I’m in “Westworld,” Zoe Saldana joked in the “The Late Late Show with James Corden.” I said: “Years ago you thought I was in “Traffic”! Mother, you didn’t give birth to Thandie Newton!” Yet she said again: “Your show can be seen on HBO!” And I said, “Which show?” And she again: “Westworld!” Presenter James Corden could laugh with it: “What you actually mean is that your mother doesn’t know what you look like.”
Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland
The ‘Ted’ actress and the ‘Modern Family actress’ have repeatedly indicated that people are always confused. During an event in 2010, the two stars played the game, and they happily pretended to be each other. “Sometimes Mila pretends to be me because it makes her feel young,” Sarah Hyland then joked.
Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman
No matter how the two wear their hair or whatever dress they put on: the similarity between Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman remains striking. Even to the extent that during the recording of ‘Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace’, Knightley also served Portman as a stand-in.
Isla Fisher and Amy Adams
Despite the fact that they have a different eye color, Isla Fisher and Amy Adams are often confused. “If my movie becomes a hit, then he was with Isla Fisher. And if it turns out to be a big flop, he was with Amy Adams,” Isla Fisher joked during an interview about “Confessions of a Shopaholic.” Fisher also admitted that she once used a picture of Adams on a Christmas card and that she managed to fool her own family.
Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry
‘New Girl’ actress Zooey Deschanel was not initially involved with it, similar to Katy Perry. “To be very honest: it is annoying,” she said on MTV in 2009. Over the years she has been updated: “I was relieved when I saw Katy in real life. Everyone kept repeating how much I look like her. When I bumped into her, I immediately thought: “happy is so attractive!”
Sigourney Weaver and Susan Sarandon
When Susan Sarandon received the Women of the Year Award in 2016, she said many fans are mistaken and think they are dealing with Sigourney Weaver. “I want to make a few things clear: Sigourney and I are two different people. Yes, I have often received praise in her place. And yes, she has already put signatures in my place”, it sounded laughing. In 2014, Sarandon also said that Weaver is her “bad-ass alter ego”.
Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
They probably did not see it themselves when they were cast, but since the two actors were both in 1999 in the comedy ‘10 Things I Hate About You’, fans of Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt could hardly keep apart. That the two resemble each other is, therefore, an understatement.
Elizabeth Banks and Chelsea Handler
Elizabeth Banks never hid that she likes to fool fans when they think they’re actually dealing with comedian Chelsea Handler. “I was in Toronto when suddenly a man approached me and said: ‘my wife loves you, can I have a signature for her? This is great, she loves your books’. I thought: ‘Oops, I don’t write books at all. You mean Chelsea Handler. But I went along with his story, I didn’t want to ruin it for him.”
Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
When Jeffrey Dean Morgan first appeared on the set of the hit series ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, the cast and crew had to check his identity hilariously. They thought that ‘Academy Award’ winner Javier Bardem had come up, and not the actor they had cast for the role.
Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain
The two actresses are well aware that they look like two drops of water. “We were both once on the set, grabbed each other and walked to the closest mirror,” Chastain told Jimmy Fallon in 2015. “We held our faces together and shouted, “OK, we really look alike.” Since then, both actresses like to joke with fans when they are confused by the appearance of the actresses.
Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz
The similarity between Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz is so striking that even the official profile of the Oscars on Instagram confused the two actresses in 2014. A painful blunder, but fortunately the ladies themselves can laugh heartily about it because they are good friends. Moreover, they often take selfies together, which only makes the ‘illusion’ bigger.
Will Ferrell and Chad Smith
They also know that Will Ferrell and ‘Red Hot Chili Pepper drummer’ Chad Smith are very similar. They were more than happy to play that when they were both guests in the talk show of Jimmy Fallon in 2014. The two seemed like twin brothers, and that is still, to say the least.
Demi Moore and Jennifer Connelly
If two drops of water look like an actress who is much more famous: Jennifer Connelly now knows what it is. “I said to someone on the street: ‘No, I am not Demi Moore!’ But she just didn’t want to believe me ”, she said during an interview. The fans were a little disappointed when they discovered the truth afterward.
Rupert Grint and Ed Sheeran
The ‘Harry Potter’ actor complained about the couch at ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ that many fans regard him as Ed Sheeran. He sees no bones in it and eagerly plays the game. Ed Sheeran also thinks it is fine: in 2011, Grint appeared in the video clip of ‘Lego House’, in which the two wore an identical outfit.
Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly
Every time actresses Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly turn up at a Hollywood party, the stress strikes the employees: who is who again? The similarity is also striking, according to the fans, although there is an age difference of 13 years between the ladies. They have never spoken about their outer similarities.
Dax Shepard and Zach Braff
The fans have been suggesting it for years: actors Dax Shepard and Zach Braff must be more than just celebrity doubles if you see how much the two are alike. And Braff knows that too because he unpacked a while back on Twitter with a Face Swap from him and Shepard. His followers went through the roof: “You see, they are just the same person,” it rained hilarious comments.
