Everybody else is doing it, why shouldn’t we? But, we go so far as to tell you if the people who look alike are actually anything alike.
This is fun – you can play the degrees of Twilight game – Matthew Bellamy is in Muse, Stephanie Meyer’s – author of the crapulent Twilight novels – favorite band. Peter Facinelli plays Carlisle Cullen, vampire doctor and lead of the Cullen vampire family, in the movies based on the novels. Neat, huh? Matthew Bellamy is engaged to Kate Hudson, who recently had his baby (they named him Bing) and Peter Facinelli is married to Jennie Garth. They have three kids, named Luca Bella, Lola Ray, and Fiona Eve. So, to sum up the similarities, which are not purely physical:
-wives who are not very good actors
-weird kid names
-both affiliated in some way with the Twilight franchise – Bellamy’s music features prominently in the films, Facinelli acts in them.
Two blondes. Very different career-wise. Very similar looks-wise. Gwen Stefani is a California Girl raised in a Catholic family. Holly Madison, born Holli Sue Cullen, was born in Oregon and her religious upbringing is not mentioned on wikipedia. Because honestly, would I bother looking elsewhere for information about her? Gwen Stefani is a pop star, clothing designer, philanthropist, wife, and mother of two. Holly is a former Hawaiian Tropic model who had a relationship with Hugh Hefner, starred on a reality program about it, and was on Dancing with the Stars (ie where reality stars go to die). Holly has had multiple plastic surgeries, has dated many musicians, and is currently performing in a topless burlesque show in Vegas. So let’s go over the similarities. There aren’t many.
-blonde but probably not natural blonde
-perfect nose (Madison’s is fake)
-perfect bodies (Madison’s is fake)
-similar skin tone
Heath Ledger, a well-respected and much-mourned Australian actor, died in 2008 because of a bad combination of prescription drugs. He was The Joker in The Dark Knight, for which he was awarded a posthumous Oscar, and had been nominated for an Oscar for his work in Brokeback Mountain, and he enjoyed playing chess. Joesph Gordon-Levitt, an American actor who got his start as a child, starred on Third Rock from the Sun, and went on to be in movies and on television. Let’s go over the similarities and coincidences, shall we?
-similar facial hair
-similar eye shape
-dark eyes and hair
-they both appeared in the 1999 film 10 Things I Hate About You
-Joseph Gordon-Levitt will appear in the next Batman installment, Ledger appeared in the last one
-Ledger had an interest in directing. So does Gordon-Levitt
It’s kind of creepy how much these guys look alike. I mean, I don’t even need to point out the physical similarities because these guys look almost EXACTLY alike. So, I’m skipping the whole “they have the same chin” bits and getting to whether or not they have anything at all in common. At first glance, not much. Dean Morgan is from Seattle, and Bardem is from the Canary Islands. That’s in Spain. Upon second glance, these guys have very little in common, other than their looks. Bardem is an award-winning international actor – Dean Morgan has done a lot of television and 15 movies, most notably Watchmen. He’s won no awards as of yet.
Admit it. If someone said to you, before you saw this side-by-side, that Jennifer Garner and Hilary Swank looked alike, you may not have agreed. But, taking a look at them right next to each other, there are some definite similaries in their appearances. Garner, a Houston native who grew up in West Virginia, has had a successful television and film career, and is married to Ben Affleck. They have two daughters. Swank is a two-time Academy Award winner and is divorced from Chad Lowe. Let’s go over the similarities, which are purely physical.
-similar beautiful lips and teeth
I know, right? The drummer for The Red Hot Chili Peppers and comedic actor Will Ferrell look so much alike! But do the similarities end there? Smith is a famed drummer, not only for his work with RCHP, but his project band Chickenfoot, with music powerhouses such as Joe Satriani, Sammmy Hagar, and Michael Anthony. Smith is has three children from a previous marriage, and two with his marriage to an architect named Nancy. They got married in the Bahamas, and Smith does charitable work and enjoys the Detroit Pistons and watching Saturday Night Live. When Smith appeared on Saturday Night Live, he wore a T-shirt that read “I am not Will Ferrell.” Ferrell is a comedic actor who got his start on Saturday Night Live. He has only been married once, to a Swedish actress named Viveca, and they have three kids.
-similar face shape
-Smith watches SNL, Ferrell has starred on it
There are a lot of similarities (physical ones) here, except for Knightley just looking more, well, British. Knightley was born in England, and has done movie acting and theater. Portman was born in Isreal and is an Oscar-winning film actor. The two of them look so much alike that when Keira Knightely played Sabe – Queen Amidala’s double in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, that when in full makeup their mothers could hardly tell them apart. Let’s take a look at the similarities:
- brown eyes, shaped similarly
- dark brown hair
- similar lip shape
- similar eyebrow arch
- similar noses – Knightley’s is a bit thinner
- appeared in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace as people who were supposed to look alike – and they did
- both very active in charitable organizations and political organizations
