They say there is a twin for everyone and for celebrities, there are some amazing look-alikes. In this article, I have compiled all my favorite amazing celebrity look-alikes. Most of the celebrity look-alikes in this list look like they could be twins or siblings.
1. Jennie Garth and Abbie Cobb
My number one, don’t miss it, celebrity look-alike, is Jennie Garth and Abbie Cobb. I saw Abbie Cobb is a move called Teenage Bank Heist, and I literally thought I was watching Jennie Garth as a young girl. She bears a striking resemblance to a young Jennie Garth (especially in this movie) and can pass as her daughter. She even sounds like her.
Jennie Garth’s most popular and longest role was Kelly Taylor on 90210 which she played for 10 years, from 1990 to 2000.
If you’ve never seen the original 90210, or if, like me, you watched it religiously, you will appreciate this video either way. This is a synopsis of “Kelly and Dylan” clips, falling in love in front of your eyes, and in the background is one of my all-time favorite songs which reminds me of 90210, Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover, by Sophie B. Hawkins:
90210 Dylan and Kelly The Story of Us
Now, compare and see for yourself…here’s a trailer from Teenage Bank Heist with Abbie Cobb:
2. Helen Hunt and Leelee Sobieski
Helen Hunt is a well-know actress who has starred in famous movies such as Twister (1996), As Good As It Gets (1997), and What Women Want (2000). She also starred in the TV series, Mad About You (1992) with Paul Reiser.
Leelee Sobieski bares a striking resemblance to a younger Helen Hunt, and looks like she can be her daughter. Leelee Sobieski has starred in such movies as Deep Impact (1998), Eyes Wide Shut (1999), and The Glass House (2001). She also starred in the Joan of Arc TV Movie (1999).
3. Leonardo DiCaprio and Dane Dehaan
Leonardo DiCaprio starred in movies such as Titantic, Inception, The Great Gatsby, and the Wolf of Wall Street.
Dane Dehaan starred in movies such as the Amazing Spider-Man 2, Chronicle and The Place Beyond the Pines.
4. Genie Frances and Amanda Schull
You may remember Genie Frances from the old General Hospital days when she and Anthony Geary portrayed the famous Luke and Laura back in 1981. She became an overnight success and the Luke and Laura wedding (even though it was fictional) made front page news around the country.
I first noticed the striking resemblance of a “young” Genie Frances and Amanda Schull when watching the the Lifetime Movie, “Betrayed”. Once again, I thought I was looking at Genie Frances’ twin. And again, I saw Amanda in the TV Movie “Hunt for the Labyrinth Killer”. They could be twins.
5. Julianne Moore and Mireille Enos
Julianne Moore has been in over 50 films including The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (1992), Nine Months (1995),The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), and Non-Stop (2014). I also remember Julianne Moore in The Fugitive (1993), as the doctor who spotted Dr. Richard Kimble, (played by Harrison Ford) posing as a maintenance worker but looking at an x-ray and ultimately saving the child’s life.
Mireille Enos is not as well known as Julianne Moore and I first saw her on a talk show and noticed her striking resemblance to Julianne Moore. Mireille Enos was in the HBO drama series Big Love (2007-2010). She has appeared in films such as World War X (2013) and If I Stay (2014).
6. Emily Osment and Carry Underwood
Emily Osment is the sister of Haley Joel Osment (who, as a child, starred in the Sixth Sense). I first saw Emily in a TV movie called A Daughter's Nightmare (2014) and noticed how much she looked like Carrie Underwood. Emily is an actress and has been in numerous movies, but she is also a singer and songwriter.
Carrie Underwood is an American country music singer and songwriter who won the 4th season of American Idol, and then rose to stardom. She was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2008 and into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in 2009. She has won numerous awards including 5 Grammy Awards, 11 Academy of Country Music Awards and 7 American Music Awards.
7. Prince Harry and Brian Kelley
Brian Kelley is a member of the country duo, Florida Georgia Line. In 2014, at the CMA Awards, Florida Georgia line was named the Vocal Duo of the Year.
Prince Harry is younger son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and younger brother of Prince William of England.
8. Ethan Hawke and Mark McGrath
Ethan Hawk was married to actress Uma Thurman from 1998 to 2005. He has been in numerous movies, including Training Day (2001), Before Sunset (2004), and Gattaca (1997), who also starred Uma Thurman.
You might remember Mark McGrath as co-host of Extra in 2004 to 2008, after which he left to pursue a music career.
9. Dakota Fanning and Amanda Seyfried
Dakota Fanning starred in such films as I Am Sam (2001) with Michele Pfeiffer and Sean Penn, Man on Fire (2004) with Denzel Washington, and War of the Worlds (2005) with Tom Cruise.
Among many other roles, Amanda Seyfried starred in Les Miserables (2012) as Cosette, the illegitimate daughter of Fantine (played by Anne Hathaway), who is rescued and raised by Jean Valjean, played by Hugh Jackman.
10. Keanu Reeves and Justin Long
We all know Keanu Reeves from such movies as Speed (1994) and The Lake House (both with Sandra Bullock), The Matrix (1999), as well as the Bill and Ted adventure series.
Justin Long, who is a bit younger than Keanu Reeves, looks like a younger Keanu. He has starred in such films as Galaxy Quest (1998), Jeepers Creepers (2001), Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007), and Live Free or Die Hard (2007).

Hi fpherj48, Glad you like the celeb pics. I always match people up too, mostly celebrities. I agree that the Garth and Cobb resemblence is anazing.
I also do the same thing you do. There are two watreisses at different restaurants that I go to that look like stars, Annette Benning and another Carrie Underwood look alike and I told them too.
Glad you love Jimmy Fallon, he is the best!!!
Thanks for your comments and feedback.

Wow! Some of these are amazing. I'd have to call the first picture of Garth and Cobb as astonishing look-alikes......also as beth said, Underwood & Osmet.
I'm surprised you didn't include Katy Perry and Zoey Deschanel......I seriously cannot ever tell their pictures apart.
I have had this habit for years. Don't know why or how it started, but every new face of someone I meet, I mentally match them with a celeb or high-profile individual. If it's really a close look-alike, I usually wind up saying something to them. I'm always interested in whether they've been told by others that they look like "so & so"......most of the time, the answer is Yes. I saw a young man last week that looked just Jake Gyllenhal......and I told him so. His wife said to me, "Oh great, that's all he needs......he already has an ego the size of Texas." LOL. Oops.
Anyway, I really enjoyed this hub. I also happen to see a comment by you and realized we have a mutual LOVE for Jimmy Falon. He's my baby....really. No one was happier than I was when he got the Tonight Show spot....
Have a great New Year......Peace, Paula ..UP++++

A very interesting list you have! Of all yours I think Underwood and Osment resemble one another the closest.
