The two actors could be the same person. They already share similar names so there’s that, and you wouldn’t be the first one to confuse the two.
The star of “Divergent” (2014) has revealed that fans, other celebs, and the press have misidentified him as Franco numerous times. It’s not hard to see why. James (Theo) has the same chiseled good looks as the “Freaks and Geeks” actor.
Brigitte Bardot and Claudia Schiffer
Besides being an international sensual symbol during the 1960s and 1970s, Brigitte Bardot was famous for portraying emancipated women on screen. Bardot became the standard for aspiring stars to live up to. Several Brigitte Bardot doppelgangers have come and gone, but none have come as close as former supermodel Claudia Schiffer.
Schiffer was dubbed "a young Bardot" after a sensational Guess ad that featured her in a bikini. She looked remarkably like Bardot in "The Girl in the Bikini" (1952).
Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain
It’s hard to believe, but Jessica Chastain and Brice Dallas Howard are not the same person. Chastain even posted a hilarious video on TikTok to set the record straight. The two look so alike that Howard’s father couldn’t tell them apart once! He mistook Chastain for his daughter while shopping.
The only way to tell them apart is through their respective bodies of work. Chastain is known for her stellar performances in "Interstellar" (2014), "Zero Dark Thirty" (2012), and "The Help" (2011). Howard has appeared in several blockbusters such as "Terminator Salvation" (2009), the Jurassic Park film series, and "Spider-Man 3" (2007). Chastain and Howard met for the first time as co-stars on "The Help."
Mario and Chris Rock
Although Mario makes singing and performing look effortless, it’s not always easy being him. The singer best known for "Let Me Love You" is often mistaken for actor and comedian Chris Rock.
Furthermore, he is over 20 years younger, leading us to believe that maybe Rock has stopped aging! The comedian has looked the same ever since Eddie Murphy discovered him decades ago. Forget related, these two could be identical twins!
Emma Watson and Kiernan Shipka
"Harry Potter" and "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" fans, unite! The witching hour is upon us in earnest because two of our favorite spellcasters could be long-lost cousins.
Kiernan Shipka plays Sabrina, and fans also know her as Sally Draper in "Mad Men." Almost everyone knows Emma Watson from the Harry Potter films as the precocious Hermione Granger. The comparisons came flooding in after the release of "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina." The actors do look a lot alike, especially when Shipka sports darker hair.
