Celebrities With Historical Doppelgangers That Will Startle You

Some people believe in the illuminati, and other crazy superstitions about Hollywood – and maybe it’s not for nothing! Because there are some historical figures from many years ago that look absolutely identical to some of your favorite celebrities in Hollywood. You’ll be wondering if these are some long-ago ancestors, or these stars keep reincarnating themselves. Either way, we can all agree that the similarities here are insanely uncanny.



1. Orlando Bloom & Nicolae Grigorescu
These two were both artists, but of a different variety. Nicolae Grigorescu was a famous Romanian painter, while his modern-day lookalike prefers to express himself through the acting arts. We can safely say they both spent a lot of time on their hair.

2. Alec Baldwin & President Millard Fillmore
It’s kind of ironic that Alec is playing a president on Saturday Night Live, and looks identical to an actual president from back in the day! Alec looks just like Millard Fillmore, the 13th president of the United States. If acting doesn’t work out, maybe Alec can become a politician!

3. Jennifer Lawrence & Zubaida Tharwat
Even the untrained eye can see that these two beauties have startling similarities. Weirdly enough, her twin is also a famous actress – an Egyptian one from the 1960’s. No one can argue that Jennifer Lawrence looks like a classic beauty, and now we have photographic proof!

4. Sylvester Stallone & Pope Gregory
These are definitely two personalities that wouldn’t have been in the same room, even if they shared the same era! Seriously, though, their eyes are identical. That would be a fight that we would pay a lot of money to watch.

5. Rupert Grint & David Wilkie
We’re not saying that all gingers look alike, but these gingers look shockingly similar. Just saying. Guess there was a whole group of painters that looked like today’s stars in Hollywood! They’re both got that melancholy angst down to perfection, so they also have that in common.

6. Peter Dinklage & Sebastián de Morra
One of these guys plays a member of royalty in a popular TV show, while the other one was a court jester, painted by Diego Velázquez! Diego’s robes probably win due to authenticity and all that – but maybe this is where Diklage got inspiration for Tyron Lannister.

7. Louis Vuitton & Zach Galifianakis
We’re sure that all the fashion industry bigwigs would be at a loss for words for this one – the ridiculous comedy actor looking the exact same as one of their most iconic designers that shaped the industry? The moustache, the hair…everything matches! What we would do to see Louis Vuitton throw on a Babybjorn and some sunglasses.

8. Mark Zuckerberg & Phillip IV
One might argue that Zuckerberg is a modern day ruler, as all of us are glued to our Facebook screens, controlled by his invention. But whereas he’s just the king of social media, Phillip IV was a real king – the king of Spain. But they have very similar complexions and features – maybe Mark has some Spanish in him!

9. Nic Cage & Civil War Soldier
It’s hard to deny that Nic Cage is twinning with this Tennessee man from the Civil War Era. A distant relative, or Nic reincarnated? Is the illuminati real? If this guy was still alive in 2017, we feel like off-duty, he would be asked for a lot of autographs!

10. Rachel Weisz & Lily Elsie
These two elegant beauties look like they have a lot in common. Well, Lily was also an actress (more illuminati suspicions being raised) from the Edwardian era, in England. She was one of the most photographed women back then, her image was in great demand. Maybe this is why Rachel caught a break and people are so enamored with her.
