Time travelers and vampires have not been proven, and they virtually exclusively appear in science fiction books or films. Because if it were possible, we would already be time traveling. It may be argued that it is against the principles of physics, such as relativity or the second law of thermodynamics. Technical difficulties also exist, like the requirement of a significant amount of energy to do so. Nobody has ever been able to travel through time or live an eternal life. If it is so unlikely, what about many famous people who lived a century ago that look just like some well-known individuals today?
The similarity between some people’s appearances and those of historical characters can make us question the existence of supernatural phenomena. How else could things be explained if one is not a time traveler or a vampire?
For example, Zubaida Tharwat, a stunning actress, is the doppelganger of Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence. The similarities are quite striking. These vintage beauties might be twins if they were born in the same decades. Let us discover the rest of the most notable doppelgängers in this article.
