Have you ever seen someone you thought you knew and you shouted their name, only to realize it SO wasn’t them? Yeah, we’ve all been there. It happens more times then we would like to count. But what would you do if you were out traveling the globe and you saw a celebrity? You’d probably stop dead in your tracks and think this was the best trip you’ve ever been on. Right after you mustered up the courage to walk up to the A-list celeb and innocently ask for a selfie. What would you do if I then told you, that wasn’t a celebrity? Instead you just took a selfie with their doppelganger? Cue the red face and welcome folks, to the world’s worst kind of embarrassment. Meet the 15 normal people out there who happen to look just like these famous celebrities, plus you’ll learn a thing or two about travel along the way. Sounds like a win-win to me.
There is a 24 year old woman walking around Scotland right now who likes just like Angelina Jolie. Her name is Chelsea Marr, her friends say that she’s a bit shy and get this, she’s actually turned some offers to model! Instead she works as an operations manager for an oil and gas recruitment company in Aberdeen. So go ahead and book that trip to Scotland, seek out the Angelina Jolie lookalike, and cross off celeb-doppelganger meet up on your bucket list, right next to, traveling to Scotland obviously.
18 year old Jacky Vasquez is taking the Instagram and Twitter world by storm as she looks exactly like Ariana Grande. She’s got the hairstyle down, the duck face, the whole eyebrow game. The resemblance is uncanny. I wonder if Vasquez works long and hard at her makeup or if it all just comes naturally? I’ll go find out as I book a direct flight to Virginia right now. I have to learn her makeup tricks plus “Virginia is for lovers” after all so you never know!
Calling all Sherlock fans, there is a 16 year old boy named Tyler Michell walking the streets of Norwich, Norfolk, and he looks just like our boy Benedict Cumberbatch! Quite often he gets comforted by strangers for missing out on a Best Actor Oscar to Eddie Redmayne. I’m going to go ahead and say, you should definitely be booking a trip to England, chances are you could run into the real Benedict Cumberbatch or the fake one, it’s about 50-50 but hey, you’re in London so I think you’re in for a pretty darn awesome trip.
Chloë Grace Moretz
Edcell Ched is a student at the City of Malabon University and she looks so much like the If I Stay star, it’s scary. Even Moretz wrote on Twitter to say that they do in fact lookalike. Could be worse. Did I forget to mention that this doppelganger is from the Philippines? You know, sandy beaches, drinks with umbrellas, a major need for suntan lotion. I’m going to go ahead and book my flight right now and maybe I’ll meet the fake Chloë Grace Moretz while I’m vacationing in this tourist hot spot.
21 year old Ty Jones, from Sale, Manchester, is adjusting to life as a doppelganger. Jones gets mistaken for Sheeran at parties, clubs, on the street, restaurants, concerts, everywhere. Jones even said that he finds it hard to date because he really has to add up if the girl genuinely likes him or if she just likes how he looks. The two actually met in 2012 and just couldn’t believe the similarity, it was looking in the mirror. Sounds like if you’re in London, you have more of a chance to meet Ty Jones then you do Ed Sheeran but then again, he could get you into all the hottest clubs while you’re vacationing in London. I mean, it could be worse.
Oh yeah, there is a 24-year-old, Glasgow native girl named Megan Flockhart who looks just like Hermione Granger! Er, um, Emma Watson. My bad. Flockhat’s Instagram account has over 21K followers and they love to leave very kind comments on her posts. We just can’t peel our eyes off of her, they look like twins! And before you ask, yes, I’ve already booked my flight to Scotland. Not just because I desperately want to meet Hermione’s doppelganger but because I’ve also heard Scotland is an incredible vacation destination so yah know, two birds, one stone kinda situation.
There is a real estate agent in Texas named Donna Blair who looks a lot like our favorite talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres. The hair, the clothes, the smile, all of it just looks way too similar. Donna actually went to a taping of the Ellen DeGeneres Show and even Ellen had to do a double take, she invited her down and they had a little chat, live on TV of course! Looks like Blair also doesn’t use makeup just like our girl Ellen doesn’t. Must be in the water.
15 year old Bailey Davila from Texas looks just like the heartthrob Harry Styles! The hair, the clothes, the eyes, the mannerisms, the fact that they both write songs and play guitar. Davila often gets stopped in the street by One Direction fans and we totally get why.
Meet 18-year old belieber Robin Verrecas who looks just like the Canadian singer, Justin Bieber. Verrecas’s Instagram and Twitter are littered with Bieber fans, which makes sense as the two could be related, the similarities are uncanny.
Kamilla Osman, oh yeah, not only is Kim’s doppelganger but even their names start with the iconic “K”. The two met back in June at a Beverly Hills cosmetic center and Kim even snapped a photo, posting it on her own social media channels. Osman even has over 300,000 Instagram followers.
The Michigan 19-year-old Gabrielle Waters looks a lot like her idol, Kylie Jenner. What’s remarkable is that Waters didn’t even think they looked alike until people started commenting on her social media accounts, pointing out the similarities. Maybe Waters will even start her own makeup line or maybe not.
Oh my goodness, there is a 90s Leonardo DiCaprio walking around, I don’t know if I can handle this. Thank the Gods for 21 year old Konrad Annerud, the Swedish bartender. I have nothing more to add apart from, ohhhhhhhh my.
Victoria Justice is well known around Hollywood for her role in Victorious but she’s also known for looking alarmingly like our girl, Nina Dobrov from The Vampire Diaries. We totally see it although Nina has a more smoldering hotness about her.
There’s a girl named Morgan Jensen, from Flagstaff, Arizona, who is a model and graphic designer and she looks so much like her idol Taylor Swift. Here’s what’s even better then that. Morgan, along with her friend Kacey, took a selfie together and uploaded it to Tumblr. Our girl Taylor Swift saw the photo and commented on it saying, “Lol I thought that was me.” After this, Morgan came out and said, ‘When I saw [Taylor] had re-blogged [shared] it I screamed and threw my phone and for the next six hours after that I was an ugly mess.” We totally get it.
Could there be anyone more gorgeous than Zac Efron? Maybe his doppelganger, the American diver Michael Hixon. During the Olympics, Efron actually met the Silver medal winner and snapped a picture of the two of them which of course, took the social media world by storm and rightly so. There is just too much hotness in one photo for the world to take.
