You’d be hard-pressed to find someone as unique as the late Paul Reubens was. He was an American comedian and actor synonymous with Pee-wee Herman. However, even Reubens had a Hollywood lookalike in Scottish actor Alan Cumming.
The stars could be long-lost brothers from across the seas! Cumming is best known for his role in the CBS drama “The Good Wife” (2010–2016), for which he won several Emmy awards and Golden Globe awards. Reubens joined a Los Angeles troupe called The Groundlings in the 1970s, where his stellar career in improv began.
Embeth Davidtz and Sarah Paulson
Sarah Paulson rose to fame for her role in "American Horror Story" (2011) but she’s also known for having several doppelgangers in Hollywood.
The internet has been buzzing with memes about how she could be secretly related to several celebrities. Among the biggest epiphanies was her striking resemblance to Embeth Davidtz, who played Miss Honey in "Matilda" (1996). Many fans were shocked when they discovered that it was Davidtz and not Paulson who appeared in the universally adored film.
Ralph Fiennes and Kevin Costner
Ralph Fiennes is an English actor who rose to fame for roles in critically-acclaimed films such as "Schindler's List," "The English Patient," and "The Hurt Locker." Although he has a fraternal twin brother, Jacob Mark Fiennes, the actor’s famous Hollywood doppelganger looks more like him.
We’re talking about none other than Kevin Costner. The resemblance is uncanny, even though Fiennes has sharper, more defined features overall. Costner was the undisputed star in Hollywood during the 80s and early 90s, winning numerous awards for his performances in "Field of Dreams" (1989), "Dances with Wolves" (1990), and "JFK" (1991).
Irina Shayk and Nicole Poturalski
The German model Nicole Poturalski was making waves in the fashion world long before the world came to know her in 2020 as Brad Pitt’s rumored lady love. Fans who discovered her social media handles for the first time could not get over her resemblance to Irina Shayk, famously known as the first Russian model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated.
The resemblance is plain to see —from similar flowing manes to those enviable sun-kissed complexions. Their eye colors may set them apart, but everything else points to the models being sisters from different mothers.
Logan Marshall-Green and Tom Hardy
Tom Hardy and Logan Marshall-Green, who are notoriously difficult to distinguish on and off-screen, are next on our list of doppelgangers. Hardy in "Peaky Blinders" (2013) is a spitting image of Marshall-Green in "The Invitation" (2015).
Hardy starred in "The Revenant" (2015), while Green appeared in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" (2017) — both sporting beards and playing villains. The list could go on! Whether they’re playing sci-fi heroes, cops, or sporting crew cuts, there’s no way to know who’s who. Unless they speak and you get to hear their accents. The two actors were born in the 1970s: Green in South Carolina and Hardy in London. Fun fact: Marshall-Green has a twin brother in real life!
