There are many celebrities who bear an uncanny resemblance to one another. Some of them experience an identity crisis while others take it in their stride and play along. Having doppelgangers is even more difficult for celebrities as they have to play nice when mistaken by the fans, so as to not ruin the reputation of their doppelgangers and fellow contemporaries. It can be a boon at the same time especially when a particular celebrity’s doppelganger commands a higher fanfare. Regardless, these celebrities have to live with the fact that they aren’t all that. After all, a limited edition loses its value when produced on a large scale.
1. Jim Carrey- Rick Carlisle
Someone’s father has some serious explaining to do. Rick Carlisle and Jim Carrey can easily pass off as identical twins. Both of them are achievers in their respective fields. Jim Carrey has been a mainstay at Hollywood for quite some time now and has managed to enact bone tickling scenes in the Ace Ventura movies, Dumb and Dumber and The Mask etc. Meanwhile, Rick Carlisle dons the hat of a basketball coach; the man is the head coach of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team and he is one of the few men who have managed to lift the NBA championship both as a coach and as a player.
2. Kyle Korver-Ashton Kutcher
Kyle Korver can be considered a poor man’s Ashton Kutcher. The man plies his trade for the Atlanta Hawks in the NBA. With an appearance that strikes a close resemblance to Hollywood heartthrob, Ashton Kutcher, Kyle Korver must not be having a hard time courting the ladies. Meanwhile, Ashton Kutcher is a model turned actor, producer, and investor. The man initially gained prominence through his portrayal of the character, Michael Kelso, in the sitcom, That 70’s Show. Apart from that, he has also starred in movies such as Just Married, My Boss’s Daughter, The Butterfly Effect, What Happens in Vegas, and No Strings Attached etc.
3. Nina Dobrev-Victoria Justice
Choosing the prettier one between the two actresses, Victoria Justice and Nina Dobrev, is as difficult as choosing between apples and oranges. Besides being involved in the acting industry, both of them have been equally blessed with heavenly looks. Nina Dobrev struck fame when she landed the role of the female protagonist, Elena Gilbert, on the drama series, The Vampire Diaries. Meanwhile, Victoria garnered a fan following after her stint on the series, Zoey 101 and Victorious. With age on their side, we can certainly expect a lot more material from the actresses in the years to come.
4. Javier Bardem- Jeffrey Dean Morgan
We were truly humbled when we mistook Javier Bardem for Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the movie, The Losers. We can bet our bottom dollar that you were as surprised as we were when the credits rolled out. Apart from looking alike, Javier and Jeffrey also a share similar passion for acting. Bardem has been bestowed upon with a litany of accolades including a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe. The man also has an Oscar nomination. Comparatively the lesser talented, Jeffrey hasn’t had much to gloat over. He has been a part of some successful flicks though. He can be seen in the movies The Losers, Jonah Hex, The Salvation, Watchmen, and P.S. I love you etc.
5. Andy Roddick-Seann William Scott
It is possible that both Andy Roddick and Seann William Scott share the same ancestors. The two can easily swap passports and nobody would even bat an eye. The taller of the two, Andy Roddick is a former World No.1 tennis player. He also wins in the wife department as his beau, Brooklyn Decker, is a renowned model who is stunning beyond belief. On the other hand, Seann William Scott is prominent for his portrayal of the character, Steve Stifler, in the American Pie movie franchise. We aren’t too sure if he is worth his salt as an actor.
6. Hugh Grant-Phil Mickelson
Phil Mickelson is a household name in golf. The man has many golf trophies under his belt and some of them include three Masters Titles and five major championships. The man’s close resemblance to Hugh Grant also plays well with the ladies. Hugh Grant is a bona fide A-lister whose movies collectively have managed to gross over $2.4 billion worldwide.

Roberto Luongo has gained major recognition in the media for looking similar to Sacha Baron Cohen. The man plays as a goaltender for the NFL team Florida Panthers; he has also done his country proud by winning the Olympic gold medal twice with the Canadian Olympic Hockey team. He must be relieved to say that looking like Sacha Baron Cohen isn’t his biggest achievement. Sacha’s area of expertise lies in acting and he has been fortunate enough to play roles in movies such as Borat, Hugo and Les Miserables etc; he will be next seen in 2016’s Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.
8. Sidney Crosby-Andy Samberg
Sidney Crosby is a professional ice hockey player who offers his services to the NHL team, Pittsburgh Penguins where he also skippers the squad. His reason for inclusion on the list is because of the fact that he can pass off as Andy Samberg’s doppelganger. Over the years, Andy Samberg has tried his hand at acting, singing, writing and producing to a fair amount of success. His comedy group, The Lonely Island, is widely renowned for featuring famous celebrity singers in their songs and music videos.

We cannot undermine Robert Horry’s achievements because he isn’t your ordinary bloke. After all, the man has played professional basketball in the NBA for 16 seasons! And, he has won 7 NBA championships with three different teams. Will Smith is also someone who doesn’t need an introduction. With two Academy Award nominations and four Grammy Awards under his belt, Will Smith is a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. His movies have a combined worldwide box office collection of over $6.6 billion.
10. John Lithgow-George Karl
Not afraid to dish out commands to the Sacramento Kings, head coach, George Karl, is a celebrated coach in the NBA and why wouldn’t he be.

The entire world knows the likeness in appearance between Will Ferrell and Chad Smith. The duo knows it too and they’ve already acknowledged it. They were most recently seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for an epic drum-off. Although similar in stature, Will Ferrell’s smart-aleck mouth and Chad Smith’s distinguished drumming skills helped us differentiate between the two. Funnyman Will Ferrell is most notable for his roles in Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Blades of Glory etc. Chad Smith plays drums for the successful band, Red Hot Chili Peppers and holds a permanent spot on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
12. Margot Robbie-Jamie Pressly
