Many celebrities have doppelgängers that are both blondes, redheads, or tiny. However, there are situations when two stars appear so identical that fans, paparazzi, and even other Hollywood elite are unable to tell them apart. Here are 40 celebrities who have been misidentified as other celebrities. Some of the stories are cute, while others are…awkward. Keep reading.

1. Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry

The wide-eyed stars are frequently mistaken with one another. Deschanel recognized in 2009 that the situation may be aggravating.

“To put it bluntly, it’s a little bothersome. “The only thing we have in common is that we look a little bit alike,” she told MTV. “I’ve known her before. She appears to be a pleasant person. I’m glad she’s popular enough now that she’s not mistaken for me when she goes out.”

However, by 2011, her opinion about their resemblance seems to have eased. She even joked on Instagram about dressing up as the twins from The Shining for Halloween.

2. Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester

Kelly and Meester met on the set of a Clearasil commercial in 2003 and hit it off right away. Meester delighted at the chance to work with the doppelgängers again for the 2011 psychological thriller The Roommate, calling the casting a “no-brainer.” Guess she recognises the parallels as well.

3. Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood

Radcliffe discussed being mistaken for Wood in an interview with Marc Maron. You’ll be disappointed if you approach him and ask whether he’s the renowned hobbit.

“If you approach me and ask, ‘Are you Elijah Wood?’ “I’ll say no, and I’m not going to tell you who I am,” Radcliffe stated.

What’s the reason behind their error? “It’s because our ideas are the same,” he explained. “We’re both small guys with blue eyes and brown hair.” And we worked on fantasy films that were released at the same time.”

4. Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes

Consider how very alike Neeson and Fiennes appear. They are aware of it. The two actors have been friends for decades (they’ve been in countless films together, including Schindler’s List) and enjoy making fun of their regular miscommunications.

“Because our profiles are so similar, fans and other people constantly confusing me with Ralph. So I’ve been congratulated on winning a Tony Award for my Hamlet, and he’s been congratulated on the Taken films “On The Jonathan Ross Show, Neeson stated.

5. Tom Hardy and Logan Marshall-Green

If you believed Hardy and Marshall-Green were the same people, don’t be embarrassed; it happens to the best of us. And, believe it or not, there is a third doppelgänger out there: Logan Marshall-Green has an identical twin brother.
