Hollywood Lookalikes That Make Fans Do a Double Take
Scientists reportedly say every person has roughly six doppelgangers out there in the world. So going by that, there are seven people with your face, including you, out there.
So it is likely for you to have a doppelgänger, and they might not even be your twin, related to you, or connected to you in any way.
Things are not too different for Hollywood celebrities, so to say.
Over the years, we have had many instances of celebrities having famous lookalikes, unrelated identical twins, that resemble them uncannily. Here are some of them!
Emmanuelle Chriqui and Nina Dobrev Are Look-Alike
Y’all keep talking about Victoria Justice and Nina Dobrev but what about Emmanuelle Chriqui and Nina Dobrev ??? pic.twitter.com/9uBEsibJtQ — ðŒðžð¥ð¢ð³ð³ðš ðð¡ðšð ð ð¢ð«ð¥ ðŸ”ª (@Alexthelion5000) May 4, 2021
"...Nina Dobrev, is a Bulgarian Christian with olive skin, and she's sometimes Mistaken for actress Emmanuelle Chriqui, who is a Moroccan-Jew. Both have olive skin, and they don't look like Black people," a user on Twitter once wrote about their resemblance.
Rightly so, the two actresses lead a very different life, too.
Chriqui, the daughter of Moroccan Jewish parents, is a Canadian star known for her roles in Wrong Turn, Entourage, and Superman and Lois.
Her lookalike Dobrev, also a Canadian star, is known for portraying Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce on The CW's supernatural drama series, The Vampire Diaries.
Sarah Gadon and Lili Reinhart
Alias Grace star Sarah Gadon and Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart are other fine examples of celebrities' lookalikes.
The post showed a movie still of Harington and a mysterious actress who looked eerily similar to her.

"Saw this on my [Instagram] Explore page and thought it was me??" the actress wrote.
No prize for guessing that the other actress who looked like her was none other than Gadon.
Jane Lynch and Jamie Lee Curtis
So much so that both flaunt short grey hair, which makes it hard for fans to differentiate between the two.
"People say Jamie Lee Curtis and Jane Lynch look identical??? Sisters... Sure...," The Vampire Diaries star Daniel Newman tweeted, implying he was shocked to see the two actresses' resemblance.
Elizabeth Perkins and Millie Bobby Brown
The Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has an identical lookalike, too.
A recent TikTok video posted by user @shuhuhuh compared the actress with Elizabeth Perkins, a 61-year-old actress who starred in Last Night, Big, The Flintstones, and Miracle on 34th Street.
The creator pasted Brown's recent and Perkins' old pictures to showcase that the two looked similar in the video.
Samara Weaving and Margot Robbie
Fellow Australian actresses Samara Weaving and Margot Robbie also make it to the list of celebrities' lookalikes.
The two, both of whom are in their early 30s, are often confused by fans; sometimes, people have approached them but thought they were the other person.
Speaking with WHO magazine (via Dailymail), Weaving shared that she was once approached for a photo by a young Margot fan who thought she was finally meeting her idol.
