Pretty much everyone has a celebrity that they share some sort of vague resemblance to. I’ve had many friends say I look like Jordin Sparks, but I can’t see anybody in the street approaching me for an autograph and a selfie.
However, what is rare is sharing an appearance so similar to that of a famous person that you almost look like exactly the same person – like you could be identical twins.
Here are nine celebrities who met their lookalikes in real life:
And if you do happen to share an uncanny likeness with one of the world’s most recognizable faces, then prepare to receive an insane amount of attention, if you haven’t already.
That’s exactly what happened to 27-year-old Stephanie Murray. She was working at a friend’s cafe in Canberra on what she thought was an ordinary Sunday when she was told she bore a striking resemblance to none other than Meghan Markle.
And it wasn’t just anyone who told her that she was spitting image of the soon-to-be duchess, but rather a journalist from the Canberra Times. As a result, she has since received international attention including phone calls from numerous media outlets.
“The story has completely blown up, it’s gone viral which I wasn’t expecting,” she told the Daily Mail.
“I have people calling me from across the country and I now have representation.”
And that certainly isn’t the extent of it – she has also been contacted by television networks asking her to take part in live interviews and even in reality TV shows.
