Celebrities And Their Doppelgängers


We love playing the twin game with lookalike stars from today, but what about the modern A-listers who look exactly like icons from yesteryear? From old Hollywood glamazons to current “it” stars, here are the mind-blowing side-by-sides of some of our favorite celebs and their counterparts from another era.


Helen Mirren (1970) and Jennifer Lawrence

From their big eyes to their full cheeks, it’s hard to tell the difference between a young Helen Mirren and Jennifer Lawrence.


Sophia Loren (1961) and Sofia Vergara

Both in looks and personas, Sofia Vergara is Sophia Loren’s modern day counterpart. Given their sultry looks, it’s no surprise the two women became sexy screen sirens.


Lauren Bacall (1950) and Karlie Kloss

If they weren’t decades apart in age, we’d be pretty sure that Lauren Bacall and Karlie Kloss, with their heart-shaped face and deep set eyes, were long lost twins.


Ava Gardner (1950) and Liv Tyler

Liv Tyler possesses the same delicately fair skin, dark hair, and green eyes that made Ava Gardner one of the biggest film stars in the ’40s and ’50s.


Sade (1990) and Jourdan Dunn

If you told us model Jourdan Dunn was the ’80s singer Sade’s clone, we’d believe you. Their almond-shaped eyes are almost identical.


Audrey Hepburn (1954) and Lily Collins

Both Audrey Hepburn and Lily Collins have the acting chops to back up their beauty. The two actresses also share many of the same petite facial features.


Clark Gable (1932) and George Clooney

It’s his soft eyes that make the devilishly handsome George Clooney a dead ringer for legendary actor Clark Gable.


Shalom Harlow (1996) and Olivia Wilde

Shalom Harlow and Olivia Wilde share the same square-shaped face and almond eyes. And lucky for both of them, this combo seems to be the key to being photogenic.


Mick Jagger (1968) and Harry Styles

Not only are they both chart-topping singers, but Harry Styles takes after the legendary Rolling Stones singer in the looks department, too, sharing a similar nose and eyes.


Heath Ledger (1997) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

A few years his junior, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is very reminiscent of the late Heath Ledger with their thin smiles and dark, deep eyes.


Dorothy Dandridge (1950) and Maya Rudolph

Actresses Dorothy Dandridge and Maya Rudolph share the same oval-shaped face and subtle smile.


Madonna (1986) and Sky Ferreira

The Queen of Pop and up-and-coming artist Sky Ferreira owe it to their short, sleek jawline for looking so similar. They have pretty similar brows, too.


Carla Bruni (1990) and Bella Hadid

It isn’t just her success on the catwalk that has the fashion world buzzing that Bella Hadid is the next Carla Bruni—her high cheekbones make her a dead ringer for Bruni back in the ’90s, too.


Zora Neale Hurston (1950) and Queen Latifah

In every other way, Queen Latifah is truly unique, but when it comes to her looks, the singer and actress has a striking resemblance to novelist and folklorist Zora Neale Hurston.


Ginger Rogers (1935) and Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera and ’40s icon Ginger Rogers share more similarities than just being blonde bombshells. They also both made it in Hollywood as singers.


Jane Birkin (1960) and Jessica Paré

This is our official plea for Jessica Paré to play Jane Birkin on screen. One was a ’70s fashion icon and the other played a ’70s housewife on Mad Men, but both are essentially carbon copies of one another.


Sharon Tate (1965) and Rose Byrne

Three Sharon Tate films premiered in 2019, but not one cast Sharon’s present day doppelgänger (at least, according to us), Rose Byrne.


Joan Crawford (1946) and Kate Winslet

Joan Crawford was famous for her high arching brows, which she popularized in the ’40s. We think that the same characteristic on Kate Winslet is what makes the two actresses look so much alike.


Paul Newman (1963) and Ansel Elgort

Both Paul Newman and Ansel Elgort have worked on an impressive number of films, and both actors share the same full lips and jawline that gives them their movie star looks.


Robert Redford (1970) and Brad Pitt

From their floppy blonde hair to their chiseled jawline, it’s easy to see why Brad Pitt and Robert Redford were the heartthrobs of their respective generations.


Elizabeth Taylor (1955) and Lindsay Lohan

While Lindsay Lohan normally sports red hair, she was temporarily brunette in 2006, which drew attention to her violet-green eyes making her a dead ringer for Elizabeth Taylor. And we’re not the only ones who think so—Lohan portrayed Taylor in the biopic Liz and Dick.


James Dean (1955) and Scott Eastwood

Though Scott Eastwood’s looks have largely been compared to those of his famous father’s, Clint Eastwood, we can’t help but see a resemblance between him and Rebel Without a Cause actor James Dean. It seems like Scott has even mastered Dean’s famous eye squint.


Jeff Bridges (1980) and Liam Hemsworth

While Jeff Bridges and Liam Hemsworth share a laid-back attitude, they also closely resemble one another. A young, clean-cut Bridges is the spitting image of the youngest Hemsworth brother, right down to that soft smile.


Christopher Plummer (1965) and Michael Fassbender

There are a lot of characteristics that make Michael Fassbender the doppelgänger of The Sound of Music star. But their strong build and prominent jawline are just a couple of examples.


Judy Garland (1952) and Katherine Heigl

Despite their different hair colors, everything from Katherine Heigl’s round face and dark eyes to her button nose are shared by Judy Garland.
