11 Celebrity Look-Alikes

Almost everyone in the world probably has at least one look-alike, but it’s obviously easier to notice the celebrity ones because they’re in the public eye. Here are a few celebrities who look like they could have been separated at birth.

1. Neil Patrick Harris Vs Greg Rutherford

Many people noticed Greg Rutherford and how he looked like Neil Patrick Harris after he won a gold medal in long jump in the London 2012 Olympics.  ‘Neil Patrick Harris’ was even a trending topic on Twitter with people commenting on how the actor who plays Barney Stinson in ‘How I Met Your Mother’ looked like Greg Rutherford, except that he was just ginger haired.

2. Katy Perry Vs Zooey Deschanel

When I saw the poster for ‘New Girl’ I honestly thought it was a new show starring Katy Perry but later I found out it was Zooey Deschanel and I was so shocked. These two look so alike but because I regularly watch New Girl and by being a fan of both of them, I can now tell them apart.

3. Ashley Cole Vs Kurt Couto

Kurt Couto, Mozambique athlete who competed in the Men’s 400m hurdles at the London 2012 Olympics looks very much like footballer, Ashley Cole. I noticed this similarity during the 400m hurdles and I wasn’t the only one as someone else mentioned it on Facebook not long after.

4. Matthew Perry Vs Shane West

Okay, the similarity isn’t very clear in this image but if you’ve watched ‘A Walk To Remember’ countless times and you are a ‘Friends’ fanatic like me you might notice it. I realised this similarity whilst watching Friends, especially in the first few seasons where Matthew Perry was younger.

5. Courtney Cox Vs Nelly Furtado

Courtney Cox, another Friends star who made it to the list, looks a lot like Nelly Furtado, the ‘Promiscuous Girl’ singer. The similarity in this picture is unbelievable! I think it might be their smiles.

6. Paul Rudd Vs Chris Pratt

Again this is not very clear to see in the picture but whilst watching The Five Year Engagement where Chris Pratt played ‘Alex’, I saw the similarity between him and ‘Friends’ and ‘Dinner for Shmucks’ star, Paul Rudd.

7. Daniel Radcliffe Vs Elijah Wood

A lot of people have gotten these two mixed up and it’s not hard to see the resemblance. Daniel Radcliffe even spoke about it in an interview for GQ magazine, “I get constantly mistaken for Elijah Wood. I was in Japan and someone held out a photo of him for me to sign. I couldn’t say it in Japanese so I wrote, ‘I’m not Elijah Wood but thanks anyway, Daniel Radcliffe.'”

8. Mischa Barton Vs Jessica Tovey

‘The O.C.’ star Mischa Barton looks very much like Australian actress Jessica Tovey, and it’s not just in this picture. A few years ago I watched ‘Home and Away’ regularly, where Jessica Tovey played Belle Taylor and I had to double check to see if the actress wasn’t Mischa Barton.

9. Simon Baker Vs Nicholas Bishop

Here we have another ‘Home and Away’ star – Nicholas Bishop, who played ‘Peter Baker’ looks so much like ‘The Mentalist’ actor Simon Baker I thought they were the same person for about a year!

10. Matt Damon Vs Leonardo DiCaprio

Okay, not everyone will see this similarity, but I always saw it. That was until I watched ‘The Bourne Identity’ for the first time last week and whilst watching it I couldn’t really see it. I’m pretty sure that was the first Matt Damon movie I watched, and I probably couldn’t see the resemblance because both Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon are very good actors.

11. Carly Rae Jepsen Vs Michelle Tratchenberg

I saw this as soon as I watched the music video to Carly Rae Jepsen’s catchy single ‘Call Me Maybe’. I also showed other people the video and asked if she does look like ‘Gossip Girl’ actress Michelle Trachtenberg and they all agreed. I think the resemblance is due to their eye colour and their smiles.

Are there any other celebrity look-alikes you can think of?

B.o.B ft Taylor Swift – Both Of Us

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us

[B.o.B:]
Ever thought about losing it
When your money’s all gone and you lose your whip
You might lose your grip when the landlord tell ya that you’re due for rent
And the grass so green on the other side
Make a nigga wanna run straight through the fence
Open up the fridge ’bout twenty times
But still can’t find no food in it
That’s foolishness
And sometimes I wonder, why we care so much about the way we look,
And the way we talk and the way we act and the clothes we bought, how much that cost?
Does it even really matter?
Cause if life is an uphill battle
We all tryna climb with the same ol’ ladder
In the same boat, with the same ol’ paddle
Why so shallow? I’m just asking
What’s the pattern for the madness
Everybody ain’t a number one draft pick
Most of us ain’t hollywood actors
But if it’s all for one, and one for all
Then maybe one day, we all can ball
Do it one time for the underdogs
Sincerely yours, from one of y’all

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us

[B.o.B:]
I can feel your pain, I can feel your struggle
You just wanna live, but everything so low
That you could drown in a puddle
That’s why I gotta hold us up, yeah hold us up
For all the times no one’s ever spoke for us
To every single time that they play this song
You can say that that’s what Bobby Ray wrote for us
When the tides get too high
And the sea up underneath get so deep
And you feel like you’re just another person
Getting lost in the crowd, way up high in the nosebleeds
Uh, because we’ve both been there, yeah, both of us
But we still stand tall with our shoulders up
And even though we always against the odds
These are the things that’ve molded us
And if life hadn’t chosen us
Sometimes I wonder where I would’ve wound up
Cause if it was up to me, I’d make a new blueprint
Than build it from the ground up, hey
But if it’s all for one, and one for all
Then maybe one day, we all can ball
Do it one time for the underdogs
From Bobby Ray, to all of y’all

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us
Oohhh, oohh [4x]

 

I’m Glad There Still Are Good People

When I was shopping today (well technically yesterday) I lost my iPhone 4S. In the city centre, the busiest place in Birmingham. In New Look, one of the busiest shops in the city centre.

When I realised I had lost it, I went back and no one had handed it in. I felt so stressed out. My friend tried calling it but no one was answering. We then went to the Apple shop to use Find My iPhone to locate it and it wasn’t in the city centre anymore! It was about 15 minutes away. We called again and then someone said they had found it and called my sister using it and we’re on the way to my house to drop it off. I felt so relieved! And for some reason I wanted to cry (but I didn’t).

The worst thing was that my insurance had been cancelled exactly a week ago. But now my phone is not being let out of my sight. I’m so grateful to the person who found it. Anyone could’ve taken it and just sold it. But luckily someone nice found mine and even brought it to my house. I guess I do have some good luck after all.

Also, when I was on the bus home, I saw an army of people at the bus stops and about 90% of them were looking down at their phones. It was quite funny to look at. I probably hadn’t noticed this before because my head was probably in my own phone. I wonder what else I’ve been missing.

Christina Perri – A Thousand Years

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
