Look Alike Celebrities

Do you ever watch TV and think, that actress has got to be related to that one from that movie. IMDB has an app for that. So, over time, I’ve noticed I think that way about a lot of actors and actresses so here is a random list of all the look alike celebrities whom I think should be cast as relatives in TV or film sometime in the future.

Who do you think must share an ancestor to look so much alike?

I’ll admit here that I had a twin in college. She and I were often mistaken for one another even though her eyes are blue and mine are green. Her classmates would approach me to ask for notes from class and I’d say I didn’t know what they were talking about. They thought I was just being mean and keeping the notes to myself. There was one nun on campus who couldn’t tell us apart. I explained each time I was Evin not Angela, but she insisted we both had faces of the angels. Things only a nun would say!

    I did it once. I thought you were Angela and I realized (at the last minute!) that NO, you weren’t. LOL I had forgotten about that.

    • Evin says:

      I nearly had forgotten that too, Kim, until I started writing this post. I think Sister Raymond was one who mixed us up. Another one too. I met Ang when I visited CHC the very first time and didn’t think we looked alike at all, but she’s beautiful so being told we did was very nice to hear.

  2. Kay says:

    Just found this post looking for pics of Robin Tunney and Alexis Bledel together. Seriously, why doesn’t somebody cast them together?

    My vote is for Ellen Pompeo and Renee Zelwiger (pre-whatever-she-had-done).

  3. Gail says:

    I always thought Jake Gyllenhall and Toby Maguire should play brothers, and then they did, in a film called Brothers. Unfortunately the premise didn’t excite me at all but I was pretty psyched to see that they were in the roles I had decided they were born to play.

    Another one that is admittedly quite facial-hair/scruff dependent is Richard Armitage and Daniel Radcliffe.
