Spot the Difference

They say that everyone has a twin out there somewhere, so it makes sense that’d hold true for celebrities too. However, being a famous person’s doppelganger is very different than just kind of looking like your accountant. These ordinary people have found themselves chased down by fans and stalked by paparazzi, all because they look exactly like A-listers. Check out these freaky similarities and see if you can spot the difference!

Angelina Jolie

Melissa Baizen is just a regular, everyday mom from Wisconsin. Yet, random people constantly ask for her autograph. It turns out those confused fans are mistaking Baizen for another beautiful mother — Angelina Jolie!

Melissa modestly said, “Every time I get the comparison, whether it’s at work, running an errand, or online, it’s very flattering but also hard for me to believe. I think she is absolutely gorgeous and never thought of myself in that respect.”

Taylor Swift

Laura Cadman often gets accused of imitating Taylor Swift’s look. But, in reality, the British student says that T-Swift’s makeup style is the most flattering for her face. That makes sense since Cadman and Swift look so much alike!

The doppelganger explained, “Nothing prompted me to have this look. I am naturally blonde, reasonably tall, and reasonably slim… The rest of my ‘Taylor Swift look’ just consists of classic red lipstick and eyeliner, which I personally think is the most flattering makeup on me.”

Leonardo DiCaprio

Konrad Annerud may look like Leonardo DiCaprio, but he doesn’t seem to enjoy young women’s attention as much as the actor does. The bartender explained, “It can be quite annoying sometimes when people call me Leo instead of my real name.”

He continued, “When I was in Italy this summer I almost felt like shaving my hair off. It was very chaotic; people were yelling ‘Leo’ and wanted to take photos with me all the time. It was one of the craziest things I’ve ever experienced.”

Meghan Markle

Flight attendant Christine Math had been routinely mistaken for Meghan Markle ever since the ex-royal was on Suits. However, now that Markle has become a household name, Math can barely go a single day without hearing about the comparison!

That said, Christine disagrees that she’s the star’s doppelgänger. Instead, she thinks it’s just an issue of one specific similarity. She explained, “Meghan and I are both mixed-race — my dad is African American and Italian and her mom is African American.”
