Celebrity lookalikes have the innate ability to blow our minds EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. A person who looks a lot like another person—it’s so simple, yet so fascinating.
For your viewing pleasure, we did a deep dive into a mysterious realm frequented by many a celebrity doppelganger (Instagram), and what we found was truly astounding. And thanks to TikTok, a whole new group of doppelgangers emerged, which join their IG pals to give us even more reason to question the lines between what’s real and what has to be a cosmic joke.
Scroll down below to see the best A-list imposters who made us do a serious double take.
1. Liam Hemsworth
If Liam ever feels like moonlighting as a pro tennis player, Karen Khachanov is his answer. The Russian athlete could be the fourth Hemsworth brother, and he knows it.
2. Reese Witherspoon
We can see why Marilee Lessley has been Reese’s body double for five movies (and now Big Little Lies). The “entrepreneur momma” appears to have a lot in common with side hustle Queen Witherspoon, plus they look a lot alike. Of course, it doesn’t help that they’re wearing the same outfit and hairstyle (Reese is the one on the right, btw).
3. Lady Gaga
Meet Amethyst Rose (on the right), Lady Gaga’s teenage twin. We aren’t the only ones to note the resemblance—in her Instagram bio, the 18-year-old writes, “If I had a dollar for every time someone said I look like Lady Gaga I’d be V rich.” Not a bad way to build your fortune, tbh!
4. Taylor Swift
Swift has a legion of look-alikes out there, but British student Laura Cadman might just be the most convincing. She’s just like Taylor, from her blonde hair and statement lips right down to her love of cats.
5. Selena Gomez
Contrary to popular belief, there is more than one Selena Gomez. Mexico-based 23-year-old Sofia Solares (right) could be the “Fetish” singer’s actual clone. Seriously, how are they not related??
6. Jennifer Lopez
J.Lo has a bodybuilding doppelgänger who *gasp* is even buffer than Lopez herself. Janice Garay (aka Jay from Houston) is breaking the Internet one selfie at a time and we must say, the resemblance is pretty uncanny. If Jen is ever looking to take a vacation from the paps, Janice could totally stand in for her.
The British powerhouse’s doppelganger comes in the form of Swedish 20-something Ellinor Hellborg. She looks basically identical to the soulful chart-topper, but when she breaks out the winged black liner it’s a whole new level of twinning.
8. Emma Watson
Indiana mom Kari Lewis has fully embraced her physical similarities to Emma Watson, and occasionally even cosplays as Hermione Granger.
9. Ariana Grande
20-year-old Jacky Vasquez and Miss Grande could easily pull a Parent Swap-type switch.
10. John Legend
11. Angelina Jolie
The former Tomb Raider’s doppelganger, Chelsea Marr, makes us believe that time travel is possible—she also looks a bit like Miranda Kerr, no?
12. Gigi Hadid
Surprise, surprise… Gigi’s Danish twin is also a model.
Our prayers have been answered, Queen Bey exists in duplicate!
14. Leonardo DiCaprio
Konrad Annerud is a real person, who, as far as we know, is not Leo D.’s illegitimate child or younger Swedish brother. Yo, Martin Scorsese… we’ve got a new leading man for you.
15. Kim Kardashian West
Kamilla Osman is just one of the Kim K.’s many, many ultra-convincing doppelgangers.
16. Ryan Gosling
Johannes Laschet (aka German Ryan Gosling) has the suave actor vibe DOWN—of course, it helps that he could pass as the Oscar-nominee’s twin.
17. Taylor Swift
Anyone else feel like T. Swift should really start wearing dark purple lipstick?
18. Scarlett Johansson
Reddit user Denverjoel posted a snapshot of his grandmother, Geraldine — and it managed to not only go viral, but also get the attention of Scarlett Johansson her self for the uncanny resemblance. She posted a video about it while she was en route to the premiere of her movie, Rough Night.
19. Steve Harvey
The Family Feud host met someone that looked very familiar during an episode — and he couldn’t let it slide.
