We'd like to think that everyone in this world is unique. After all, we all come from different families, and apart from twins, even people in the same family don't always look alike. But with more than 7 billion people in the world, there's bound to be more than a few doppelgangers. For the most part, this often goes unnoticed – how would you know if you have a twin in another part of the world? But when it comes to celebrities, any lookalikes are bound to get plenty of attention. Which one of these doppelgangers do you think looks like the most like their celebrity counterpart?
Brazilian Danny DeVito
Since getting his big break on the television show Taxi back in 1978, Danny DeVito has been gracing screens both big and small and becoming something of a fan favorite. Though he’s a great actor, one of the most notable thing about him is his looks.
Which makes it so hard to believe that there are other people out there that look just like him. This Brazilian man must be a little confused as to why so many American tourists want to take photos with him.
Up next, George Clooney caught riding the subway...
Turkish George Clooney
This lookalike is so convincing, it's making us wonder if things have gone downhill for the Hollywood star. After all, why else would he be found riding the metro? And this casual attire is very unlike what the snappily-dressed actor normally wears.
But we're pretty sure that George Clooney hasn’t fallen from Hollywood favor or lost his fortune. This guy was actually spotted on a train in Turkey, and apart from his good looks, has nothing to do with the actor.
Keep reading to find out what Morgan Freeman has been up to while vacationing in Mexico!
Mexican Morgan Freeman
We know some actors like to get really method when preparing for their next role, so we suppose it’s not completely impossible that Morgan Freeman could be seen getting his hands dirty. But we have to let you know, this isn’t actually him.
No, sadly, you can’t look forward to a movie in which the great actor takes on the challenge of cooking up tacos. This guy is a street vendor in Guanajuato, Mexico – so if Morgan Freeman ever needs a double, we know exactly where to look.
Click next for a 90s throwback of a young Leonardo DiCaprio!
Swedish Leonardo DiCaprio
Granted, the Oscar-winning actor doesn’t look like this these days – his baby face has matured into more chiseled good looks. But looking at this photo you could easily believe it was one taken of Leo back in the 1990s.
We do actually know a little bit about this uncanny doppelganger. His name is Konrad Annerud and he is from Sweden, where he works as a bartender. He says he's often getting asked for photos with customers, and even while he's on holiday.
Up next, the previous POTUS is a mirror image of this guy in Indonesia... You're going to want to do a double-take.
Indonesian Barack Obama
The Indonesian public has something of an interest in President Barack Obama, as the spent some of his childhood in Jakarta, with his Indonesian stepfather. Despite not being at all Indonesian, Obama does have a lookalike there by the name of Ilham Anas.
Anas was working as a photographer when Obama won the election in 2009, but after the election, he shot to fame and started earning money for his looks. He found work as a lookalike and even appeared in television commercials.
Next up, Elon Musk's long lost brother has been discovered living his best life in Russia.
Russian Elon Musk
Billionaire Elon Musk is not just famous for being rich, he’s made an incredible impact on society and technology as we know it. First as the founder of the company that would later become PayPal, and later with Tesla cars and SpaceX.
More recently he’s been in the news for his child's name and his relationship with musician Grimes, but he remains an influencer in the tech world. This Russian naval officer not only has the face of Musk, but he also gives the impression of a man of similar ambition.
Keep reading for a very unkempt Hugh Laurie!
Russian Hugh Laurie
OK, when you look at some of the other lookalikes on this list, this guy might not be up to the same standard. But he’s certainly similar enough to the British actor that you’d give him a second glance.
Especially if you found him in your bathroom – which is the most likely place he’d be. This lookalike works as a plumber in Russia, which is quite a long way from the actor's most famous role as the medical genius Dr. Gregory House.
This next look-alike is pretty jaw-dropping! Jeff Goldblum has some explaining to do.
Indian Jeff Goldblum
From his roles in blockbuster films like Jurassic Park and Independence Day to more quirky movies like The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Jeff Goldblum has been a familiar face on screens since the mid-1970s. And offscreen he’s been known for his unique fashion sense and signature style.
It’s hard to imagine anyone that could come close to matching the actor’s dapper appearance, but this mystery gentleman from India sure comes close. Not only does he have a pretty good resemblance to Goldblum, but his mustache really adds some panache.
Up next, Putin has been spotted in China, and people can't seem to get over it.
Chinese Vladimir Putin
There’s certainly no mistaking the looks of the Russian President. Two of his most defining features would have to be his thin, wide mouth and his receding hairline, with people often comparing him to Dobby from Harry Potter.
But it turns out you don’t have to look the world of fantasy films to find a Putin lookalike. This man in China bears an uncanny resemblance to the Russian politician – he even wears a rollneck just like Putin is fond of doing.
Keep reading if you want to laugh out loud because I think we may have found Jay-Z's long lost sister.
Jay-Z is undoubtedly one of the most successful hip-hop artists in history, with not only an incredible solo career but also as a record producer and businessman. He's also cited as one of the best rappers of all time.
Not only that, but he’s married to Beyonce, making him the envy of men the world over. So, you would think it would be something of a compliment to be compared to Jay Z. However, if you’re a woman this might not be what you want to hear...
Click next to meet Jim Carrey's Russian doppelganger - who couldn't look more like him if he tried...
Russian Jim Carrey
This doppelganger not only looks like Jim Carrey but has also nailed the look of one of his well-known characters. With the slightly chipped tooth and blunt fringe, he's a dead ringer for Llyod Christmas from Dumb and Dumber.
When the photo of this unknown Russian man was posted online, it quickly went viral and even came to the attention of Carrey himself. When Carrey saw the photo, he apparently called his lookalike “a great guy”, and admitted he had never been able to do a good Russian accent.
Indian Nicolas Cage
Bear with us on this one, we know the photo is a little low res here. But if you squint your eyes you can see this unnamed man in India is a pretty good likeness for Nicholas Cage, especially when he's in one of his mustache phases.
Perhaps the photographer was a big Nic Cage fan and was a little too excited to take a clear photo. The grainy pic has some people commenting on the resemblance to another actor, saying this Indian man looks more like Richard Prior.
Russian Leonardo DiCaprio
Leo DiCaprio has appeared in some of Hollywood's best films and had a long and successful career as a serious actor. But when he first came to fame, he was best known for his baby-faced good looks and adorned bedroom walls the world over.
While this man bears a very clear resemblance to the actor, we can’t say he’s much of a teen heartthrob. He does have something of a claim to fame, however – he works for the Ministry of the Interior of the Russian Federation.
Egyptian Kanye West
Kanye West has a lot going for him. He's not only one of the best-selling hip-hop artists of all time, but one of the best-selling musicians across any genre. He's also received a staggering 22 Grammy Awards and has been cited as one of the most influential people in the world by Time magazine.
One thing the rap star can't claim though is any sense of humility – in fact, he's known for his shameless self-promotion. That's why we like this Egyptian doppelganger here. He's certainly got the looks of the musician, but to us, he seems much more humble.
Asian Brad Pitt
This guy isn’t necessarily going to win any awards for a lookalike competition, but there is something of a resemblance here. When this guy showed up to do some painting around the house, the owner of the place seemed to think he looked a lot like Brad Pitt.
Other people weren’t so sure though. When the photo was posted online, some people were doubting the resemblance at all, leaving comments such as “he totally looks like him if I close my eyes…”
Peruvian Morgan Freeman
While many other celebrities on this list have rather unique looks that make a lookalike a pretty rare occurrence, there’s something about Morgan Freeman that makes it easier to find a doppelganger.
We're not sure who this man is, but he seems to enjoy a level of fame that's on par with the actor. With what looks like a parade in his honor, a fancy car, and a good-looking woman at his side, we're pretty sure that Morgan Freeman would approve.
Canadian Angelina Jolie
We have to admit, this one definitely made us do a double-take. But it turns out the resemblance isn’t quite coincidental. This is Canadian model Veronika Black, who’s had more than $15,000 in surgery to look more like Angelina Jolie.
It started back in 2011 when someone commented on how much she looked like Jolie. From there she began to get lip fillers, breast implants and had a nose job to make herself look even more like the Mr. and Mrs. Smith star.
Mexican Barack Obama
Imagine being on holiday and sitting down to dinner at a local restaurant, only to find that a member of the mariachi band is none other than Barack Obama. This man must be interrupted to pose for pictures on a daily basis.
Not everyone agrees that this man looks like the former US President, however. When this picture was posted on a popular web forum, more than one person pointed out the musician’s resemblance to British actor Dev Patel, star of Slumdog Millionaire.
American Kit Harington
Is that you Jon Snow? We don't know if it's the beard, the tousled hair, or those bedroom eyes, but this American guy is sending out some serious Kit Harington vibes. Of course, the snowy backdrop helps to complete the look too!
This face belongs to a man by the name of Josiah Martin, who found himself getting plenty of comparisons after posting this (and other pics) on his Instagram account. Martin has come to accept the comparison and even started tagging his pics with #jonsnowlookalike.
Japanese Johnny Depp
Black-rimmed glasses? Check. Fedora hat? Check. Manicured goatee and messy hair? Check. This guy has all the elements that add up to the classic Johnny Depp style. And with good reason – he’s actually a professional lookalike.
His name is Ken Shimizu and he’s known for his celebrity impersonations. He even managed to meet Johnny Depp back in 2012 when the actor was in Japan to promote a film. Shimizu’s looks obviously caught the attention of Depp, who gifted him with an autograph.
Male Overly Attached Girlfriend
You don't have to be an actor or pop star to be a celebrity – fame comes to people in the most unusual of ways sometimes. Do you remember the overly attached girlfriend meme? She went viral after posting a Justin Bieber fan video and was quickly turned into a meme.
We have to say this guy has an alarming resemblance to the OAG (whose real name is Laina Morris). With those wide, adoring eyes and fixed smile, we find it hard to believe this isn’t just Laina Morris with short hair.
Indian Bradley Cooper
American moviegoers might see this man as the Indian version of Bradley Cooper, but if you’re a Bollywood fan you’ll most probably think it’s the other way around – that Cooper is the US version of the actor Hrithik Roshan.
Roshan is a huge star in India, having started his career as a child actor back in the 1980s. He's widely acknowledged as one of the greatest actors of his generation and is also one of the best paid. Since 2012 he has appeared in Forbes India's Celebrity 100.
Turkish Michael Scott
Yes, we know Michael Scott isn’t a real person, but somehow this man seems to embody the character from The Office much more than the actor himself. Steve Carrell offscreen is a pretty good-looking man, with great personal style.
This man, however, is much more like Michael Scott. We can easily see him as the manager of a regional office somewhere in Turkey, just trying to make the workplace a little more fun for everyone. And of course, there's that mustache!
White Laurence Fishburne
Laurence Fishburne has been a fixture on the silver screen since he came to attention with this role in Apocalypse Now back in 1976. Since then we've famously seen him as Morpheus in the Matrix trilogy, The Bowery King in the John Wick series, and as Dr. Langston in CSI.
We can’t tell you anything about this man except, well, he looks like Lawrence Fishburne. From the shape of his head, his nose, his hairline, even right down to the gap in his teeth – this guy is a dead ringer. The only difference we can see is the color of his skin.
Black Hulk Hogan
Back in the 1980s, no other wrestler dominated the WWE ring quite like Hulk Hogan. His all-American persona and signature style made him instantly recognizable - with his handlebar mustache, tank top, and gold chains.
Since he’s retired, Hogan has retained his celebrity status, though he’s not in the physical prime that he was back in the day. Somehow this lookalike has managed to age along with him, right down to the tee.
Asian Mark Wahlberg
Starting out as a rapper with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch in the 1990s, Wahlberg made the smart choice to switch into acting. Since then he’s appeared in plenty of blockbuster films, famous for his roles in Boogie Nights, Planet of the Apes, and The Departed.
He’s also famous for keeping in shape and has even written about his vigorous workout routine. So it’s kind of fitting that this doppelganger was spotted in a gym in Asia - perhaps he’s been reading Wahlberg’s notes.
Will Smith might have officially been the star of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, there’s no denying that the quirky character of Carlton stole the hearts of the audience. Will’s somewhat nerdy cousin provided plenty of comic relief – most famously with his dancing.
The actor who played him, Alfonso Ribeiro, says he based his moves on what a typical teenager does while dancing. We’re wondering if this unnamed policeman ever busted out some dorky moves while listening to “It’s Not Unusual.”
A Young, Female Jason Alexander
It’s surely the dream of every young girl to be told that she looks like a famous actor, being compared to some glamorous celebrity. But to be compared to Jason Alexander? Maybe it’s not such a flattering comparison.
Jason Alexander is famous, that’s for sure, but to say he’s glamorous might be a bit of a stretch. Particularly with his iconic role as George Costanza, he really played up his balding head and glasses to create the ultimate awkward character.
Indian Mark Ruffalo
Here’s another doppelganger on the list that’s just as famous as the person they look like. He’s been dubbed here the Indian Mark Ruffalo, but you could also say that Ruffalo is the American Abhay Deol.
Deol is part of an influential family in the world of Hindi cinema, which started with his father, Dharmendra. He came to fame in his own right with his debut in Socha Na Tha, and he’s been praised for his ability to play complex characters.
Korean Danny DeVito
You saw earlier that Danny DeVito has a lookalike in Brazil, but it turns out there’s more than one man that looks like the famous actor. This time, the doppelganger was spotted on a bus in Korea.
With his short stature, black-rimmed glasses, and bald top, there's no denying there's a resemblance to Danny DeVito – he's even got the same cheeky smile. All we can say is that we're looking forward to the new series of It’s Always Sunny in South Korea.
Vietnamese George W. Bush
What does a US President do when he leaves office? Well, the fact that they have a pension means that they can simply retire, but many like to keep themselves busy. Grover Cleveland played the stock market, Roosevelt went exploring in Brazil and Carter worked for humanitarian causes.
We're told that George W. Bush used his newfound spare time to work on his art, but this photo tells another story. Who knew that Bush wanted to drive a van in Vietnam!
(Another) Russian Leonardo DiCaprio
What is it about Russia that makes it home to Leonardo DiCaprio lookalikes? Well, it could be more than just coincidence, as it turns out the actor has Russian heritage. He even claimed in an interview that he was "half Russian" as both of his grandparents on his mother's side were Russian.
It just goes to show how wealth and fame can make such a difference. This guy might look a lot like Leo, but it's certainly not the baby-faced image that made him a heartthrob. Instead, this man looks more like Leo with a hangover.
Indian Captain Jack Sparrow
Johnny Depp has more than one international doppelganger on this list, but the other two all make use of Johnny’s offscreen look – think black-rimmed glasses, fedora hat, and messy hair. But this lookalike is channeling one of his most famous characters: Captain Jack Sparrow.
Depp admitted that he based the look for his Pirates of the Caribbean role on rock star Keith Richards, who is known for his tight leather pants, headscarves, and lots of jewelry. So maybe it's more appropriate to say this is the Indian Keith Richards!
Asian Morgan Freeman
There's something about Morgan Freeman, especially now that he's a little older, that seems to draw a comparison with any goateed man of the same age. And perhaps it's the roles that he always plays that have him pigeonholed as the wise advice-giver.
We have no idea if this mystery man spotted in an airport has the same sense of wisdom, but let’s inspire him with a quote from Freeman: “I once heard a wise man say there are no perfect men. Only perfect intentions.”
Russian Male Milla Jovovich
When you see someone as good looking as Milla Jovovich, it’s hard to imagine that these features wouldn’t transform anyone into a beauty. But when gifted to this Russian teen, the wide blue eyes and pouty lips don’t have quite the same quality.
Jovovich isn't Russian herself, but she does speak the language. She was born in Kyiv, Ukraine, which at the time of her birth was part of the Soviet Union. So if these two ever met to discuss their doppelganger status, at least they would understand each other.
Chinese Brad Pitt
Some eagle-eyed traveler spotted this photo while on holiday in Beijing and noticed the similarity to actor Brad Pitt. But there is a name behind this portrait – one that is well known in China. This man is Feng Yu-Hsiang, a warlord and leader in Republican China.
He served as Vice Premier of the Republic of China from 1928-1930 and later in another of other political roles. And while there is a certain resemblance to Brad Pitt in this particular photo, he certainly grew out of these looks later in life.
African-American Bryan Cranston
So this serious-looking man spotted on the metro might not look much like the actor Bryan Cranston at first glance – but he is a pretty good lookalike for Cranston’s character Walter White from Breaking Bad (or should that be Walter Black?)
Cranston made waves with his portrayal of Walter White, an unassuming science teacher who is drawn into the illegal drug trade. It also helped establish him as a serious actor after his previous role in the sitcom Malcolm in the Middle.
Brazilian Megan Fox
Claudia Alende never had plans to be a model. But in 2014 she began to find fame online for her resemblance to actor Megan Fox. By 2015 she had more than 2.8 million followers on Instagram and was earning an impressive living from endorsements.
As her followers increased, Alende capitalized on her popularity and founded an entertainment company, becoming a highly successful businesswoman. She might have got her start as a lookalike, but this Brazilian woman now has her own claim to fame.
Indian Nick Offerman
Nick Offerman has been appearing in film and television since the late 1990s, but he didn't really become well known until he got a part in the show Parks and Recreation. His role as Ron Swanson became a fan favorite and Offerman became a star.
This guy is giving off serious Ron Swanson vibes, and it's not just about the mustache or the sweater. Here is a man that looks thoroughly fed up with his job and everyone around him - we wonder how he feels about single malt scotch?
Swedish Johnny Depp
Celebs who rock signature look off-screen make it easy for impersonators to do their job. In the case of Johnny Depp, his uniform black-rimmed glasses, fedora hat, and vintage jacket make a sure-fire shortcut to lookalike status.
Swedish man Seba Alon has something of a reputation for his Depp impersonations in his hometown of Stockholm, but he’s also got some other projects on the go. As his day job, he works as a hairdresser at his own salon, and he’s also the leader of a rock band.
Indian Clark Gable
Back in the early days of Hollywood, Clark Gable was one of the most sought-after actors in the industry. His looks and style saw him play the leading man in many hit films including It Happened One Night, The Misfits, and Gone with the Wind.
While we do think that this young Indian man is certainly handsome, and very dapper, it's been pointed out that perhaps he looks a little less like Clark Gable, and possibly more like Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Drake has something of a reputation for being the good guy of hip-hop. From his sensitive songs that encourage women to live their best lives or the tunes he wrote for his mom, he's been making girls the world over swoon with his sensitive brand of rap.
He even admitted to collecting Birkin bags to give to the woman he eventually settles down with. The guy in this college yearbook might be white, but he perfectly channels not only Drake's looks but also his squeaky-clean image.
Asian Aiden Gillen
The name Aiden Gillen might not be immediately familiar, but we’re pretty sure that the name Littlefinger will be. The Game of Thrones character, full name Petyr Baelish, is a social climber who lies and manipulates to get his own way.
This is not the first time Gillen has played such a role. Int eh HBO series The Wire, he played politician Tommy Carcetti who was somewhat underhand when it came to getting ahead. But we’re sure his lookalike must be more morally upstanding.
Cuban George Clooney
George Clooney’s good looks are so well-admired that he has become synonymous with the silver fox – the handsome middle-aged man. So any man with the same grey hair can often draw a comparison to the actor.
We have to admit this man from Cuba has a similar style of look, similar hair, and even a similar shaped face, but he really can’t match the original. Clooney has a certain something that’s made him a successful leading man that other people just don’t have.
Japanese Bruce Willis
Sure, Bruce Willis has had a solid acting career, from his early days in Moonlighting to films including Pulp Fiction, 12 Monkeys, and The Sixth Sense. But what he's best known for is his role as John McClane in the Die Hard movies.
Spotted in Japan, this doppelganger is doing his best to pass himself off as McLane. We’re not sure if he’s a professional impersonator, but from the looks of the fans he has posing with him, he’s got at least a couple of people fooled.
Indian Josh Radnor
Josh Radnor has been working as an actor since the early 2000s, with parts in Not Another Teen Movie, Law & Order, and Six Feet Under. But you would of course know him best for his role in How I Met Your Mother.
Over nine seasons, Josh played the key role of Ted, who gradually related the tale of how he met the mother of his children. This guy is a pretty good likeness for Radnor – and we bet he’s got his own tale to tell.
Canadian Demi Lovato
Put them in a line-up and it would be hard to tell these two apart – at least from these photos anyway. It might just be the glasses, the beanie, and the long dark hair, but we think there’s more than a passing resemblance here.
This unnamed Canadian girl might look like Demi, but she'd be hard-pressed to match her achievements. Lovato has won 61 awards including a Billboard Women in Music Award, an MTV Music Video Award, and even landed a spot in the Guinness Book of Records.
Hungarian Harry Styles
We’ve already seen one member of One Direction and their international look alike, so here’s a Harry Styles doppelganger to help fill out the band. This guy definitely made us take a second look – he’s channeling pure Harry.
It's not just about the face, he's even got the tousled shoulder-length hair and flowy patterned shirt to match too. Harry has always been compared to a young Mick Jagger, so this Hungarian guy could make a similar claim to fame.
Indian Zayn Malik
Harry might get more attention, but we think Zayn was always the best-looking member of One Direction. Fans might have been devastated when Zayn left the group, but he’s given them plenty to be happy about with his solo career.
This guy might not be the real Zayn, but you don’t need fame for these looks to be appreciated. Even if he doesn’t get recognized as the singer, he’s bound to turn the heads of girls everywhere just for being so handsome.
Female Taylor Lautner
Taylor Lautner rose to fame as the werewolf Jacob Black in the film Twilight. And as the series went on, he became a worldwide sensation as a teen heartthrob, earning a place on Glamour’s “50 Sexiest Men of 2010” list.
While it's not always a compliment for a woman to be told she looks like a man (even a famous one), we think this girl pulls off the look pretty well. It just goes to show that some faces just have universal appeal.
Sri Lankan Kit Harington
This man came to attention when he was featured on the news back in 2014. He was working in a gas station in Houston when two thieves ambushed him after returning from the bank but little did they know they were in for a big surprise.
It turns out this humble clerk is Mayura Dissanayake, a 10-time Sri Lankan MMA champion. He gave the two robbers a good seeing to and earned himself plenty of adoration – as well as attracting comments about being the Sri Lankan Jon Snow.
