In literature and folklore, a doppelgänger is frequently depicted as a ghostly or paranormal phenomenon and is typically seen as a portent of ill luck. Despite that, curiosity makes many eager to meet their lookalikes.
Thankfully, this is real life, where doppelgänger is a myth. Mostly. While the part about misfortunes is just old wive tales, there are people in the world that looks oddly similar they could pass as identical twins.
According to research, the chances of two persons having the same face characteristics are fewer than one in one trillion. There is only a one in 135 probability that a single pair of doppelgängers exists in our 7 billion-person-strong world.
Celebrity look-alikes have been sweeping the internet for years, and people can’t get enough of them. Don’t believe us? I dare you to tell these 16 cases of celebrity doppelgangers that are shockingly similar apart.
#1 Taylor Swift
Could easily pass for one of Taylor’s doubles in Look What You Make Me Do, huh?
#2 Angelina Jolie
The similar eyebrows are uncanny. Could easily pass as Angie in her younger day.
#3 Jennifer Lopez
Similar rocking body, in similar poses. But I suppose there’s no one who doesn’t want to look like J-Lo.
#4 John Legend
Wow, how is this not a baby picture of John Legend? Or maybe this is John Legend with Benjamin Burton.
This doppelganger could easily pass as Queen Bee herself. Ruling over the hive, even when Beyonce herself doesn’t feel like it.
#6 Leonardo DiCaprio
Could totally pass as a cutscene from Titanic or Romeo and Juliet.
#7 Ariana Grande
Here’s a challenge: which one is the real Ariana?
#8 Dove Cameron
The similar shade of hair, eyes and lip gloss could fool even Dove’s biggest fans.
#9 Kim Kardashian
Well, if Kim ever feels tired of filming 24/7, we know she could call in as a body, and face, double.
Hello from the doppelganger side…
