Norris’ Net Worth: $70 Million Norris’ Occupation: Actor Van Gogh’s Net Worth (Adjusted for Inflation): Unknown Van Gogh’s Occupation: Painter
It has been reported by scientists that all redheads are related, so there’s a good chance that actor Chuck Norris shares some DNA with his famous doppelgänger. Renowned artist Vincent Van Gogh may be best known for his paintings, but he also looks a lot like the Walker, Texas Ranger star. They have far more than just their hair color in common though!
The two also share a full auburn beard, a prominent nose, deep-set eyes, and stoic glare. While Norris has never been known for being artsy, he earned his tough-guy reputation long before he appeared on television. It was his experience in martial arts that eventually led to his acting career. Norris’ career took off, while Van Gogh never saw success during his lifetime.
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rose Wilder
Lane Gyllenhaal’s Net Worth: $15 Million Gyllenhaal’s Occupation: Actor Lane’s Net Worth (Adjusted for Inflation): $9 Million Lane’s Occupation: Writer
Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal has appeared in many major motion films including The Dark Knight, Donnie Darko, and Mona Lisa Smile. Like her doppelgänger, creativity runs in Gyllenhaal’s family. Her brother is a well-known actor Jack Gyllenhaal and they’re the children of director Stephen Gyllenhaal and screenwriter Naomi Foner.
The actress looks shockingly similar to writer and journalist Rose Wilder Lane whose mother is Laura Ingalls Wilder, creator of the Little House on the Prairie series. In addition to an adorable button nose, the two also share straight lips, smile lines, thick brown locks of hair, and glaring eyes. Believe in time travel yet?
Hugh Grant and Oscar Wilde
Grant’s Net Worth: $150 Million Grant’s Occupation: Actor Wilde’s Net Worth (Adjusted for Inflation): $8 Million Wilde’s Occupation: Writer
In certain photos of British actor Hugh Grant, he might resemble the famous Irish writer, Oscar Wilde. Calling them doppelgängers might be a stretch, but it’s possible the two are distant relatives. The two may share a long jaw and heavy eyes, but it’s the hair that truly makes these two look alike.
Grant rocked the floppy hairstyle for years, and it quickly became his trademark. Wilde had a similar look, getting a mushroom cut long before it was in style. The two don’t look enough alike to question Grant on time travel claims, however.
Jack Gleeson and Caligula
Gleeson’s Net Worth: $6 Million Gleeson’s Occupation: Actor Caligula’s Net Worth (Adjusted for Inflation): $10 Million Caligula’s Occupation: Roman Emperor
Actor Jack Gleeson is best known for his role as Joffrey Baratheon on Game of Thrones, a young and sadistic king who uses his power for evil. Gleeson’s doppelgänger played a similar role but in real life. Caligula was a young Roman Emperor between 37 and 41 BCE. While not much is known about his short time in power, there are several sources that portray him as an evil tyrant with cruel and eccentric sexual perversions.
Those who have seen Game of Thrones will see the similarities between the emperor and Gleeson’s character. The comparisons don’t stop there though! Gleeson shares quite a few physical traits with Caligula as well, such as almond-shaped eyes, a distinct nose, a strong jaw, and prominent ears. Gleeson even had a similar haircut while on the show as Caligula had in real life. Perhaps his character was inspired by the young emperor!
Jon Stewart and Henry Ward Beecher
Stewart’s Net Worth: $100 Million Stewart’s Occupation: Comedian/Host Beecher’s Net Worth (Adjusted for Inflation): $31 Million Beecher’s Occupation: Congregational Clergyman/Abolitionist
Former Late Night talk show host Jon Stewart may address politics in his comedy, but his doppelgänger went above and beyond to make changes in the United States. Henry Ward Beecher was a minister and a pastor who used his platform to protest slavery in the mid-1800s. He often used humor and slang in his lectures, gaining quite a following in New York.
Stewart, who is also coincidentally from New York, has quite a lot in common with his historical lookalike. In addition to using humor to appeal to wider audiences and to spread their political agendas, they also share narrow lips and large, heavy eyes. They don’t look enough alike to prove time travel, but they certainly might come from the same family tree!
