Celebrities With Insanely Cool Historical Dopplegängers

Could these celebs possibly be time travelers? Or maybe they have some cool family lineage? Or maybe, they just happen to have historical lookalikes just by chance? That is most likely the case, but don’t knock the time traveler things off just yet. Check out these creepy accurate lookalikes!

Ellen DeGeneres and Henry David Thoreau

Ever popular talk show host Ellen Degeneres looks wildly similar to Walden author Henry David Thoreau. Ellen could very well be a great-granddaughter of sorts!

Keanu Reeves and Louis Maurice Boutet

This French 19th-century painter has the striking resemblence of American actor Keanu Reeves.

Jimmy Fallon and Mahir Cayan

This is a particular set of look-alikes that has taken the internet by storm! Mahir Cayan was a communist leader from Turkey. The Tonight Show host has not mentioned this hilarious dopplegänger situation, but many people claim that they are at least related!

Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum has a scary soldier look alike from the 1800’s!

Peter Dinklage

This portrait of a renaissance man looks as if it was pulled right from Dinklage’s Game Of Thrones character!

Matthew McConaughey

Two dapper looking guys from two totally different centuries! They are remarkably similar.

Nicolas Cage

The very popular National Treasure actor goes back in time as a young 1800’s man in these photos! Nic Cage’s lookalike could easily be a distant ancestor.


Someone had noticed this man from a photo of Harlem in the early 1900’s and realized he looked just like Jay-Z! We know of Jay’s New York roots, is it possible this could be a lost relative? Everything down to their facial expression is the same!

Eddie Murphy

Another shockingly close match! The photo on the left looks as if it could be Murphy himself!

Jennifer Lawrence and Zubaida Tharwat

Zubaida Tharwat is an Egyptian actress who was known for having the most beautiful eyes in Egyptian cinema! As an actress in her peak in the 1960’s, these two actress’s share similar features as well as careers!

Matt Damon

Is this Damon in a new movie? Nope! This is an amazingly accurate lookalike, real-life general!

Conan O’Brien and Marshall Twitchell

The man on the left is an established Union Army soldier from Vermont and looks exactly like former The Tonight Night show host. The cheekbones and the hair give away these two lookalikes!

Jack Black

In a hilarious twist of events, someone had noticed that one of their wedding guests from a wedding in the 1960’s looks exactly like Jack Black!

Orlando Bloom and Nicolae Grigorescu

Does Orlando Bloom have any Romanian in him? This Romanian painter looks like Blooms great-great-great grandfather!

John Travolta

Travolta has got a mid-century twin!

Justin Timberlake

Could Justin bring muttonchops back? His mystery twin can sure rock it!

Jack Gleeson and Caligula

Jack Gleason is best known for his role as the second Baratheon king Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones, which is ironic since he’s a direct twin to Roman Emperor from AD 37 to AD 41!

Enzo Ferrari and Mesut Ozil

This young German profressional footballer is a stunning replica of the Ferrari king Enzo Ferrari!

Zora Neale Hurston and Queen Latifah

If we didn’t know any better, we would have assumed that these ladies were directly related! It would make sense as they are both powerful and creative, not to mention they look identical!

Leonardo Dicaprio and Judy Zipper

In a gender-bending twist, American Titanic and The World of Wall Street actor Leo DiCaprio looks exactly like a young woman in her high school yearbook from the 1960’s!

Mark Zuckerberg and Philip IV

King Philip IV of Spain and Portugal looks just like King of Social Media Mark Zuckerberg!

Alec Baldwin and Millard Fillmore

This American actor looks just like America’s 13th President! What’s even funnier is that they are both New York natives! Maybe there are some blood connections between these two.

John Krasinski

The Office actor has a very spot on lookalike with this painting!

Severus Alexander and Eminem

Will the real Slim Shady please stand up? This bust of Roman Emporer Severus Alexander looks like it could have been comissioned by Eminem himself!

Andrew Garfield and Leon Trotsky

What does the Spiderman actor and Russian theorist have in common? Well, their looks! Especially that hair, what kind of gel do they use?

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rose Wilder Lane

Both of these ladies have pretty famous families! Maggie has her just as talented brother Jake, while Rose is the daughter of famous writer Laura Ingalls Wilder!

Stephen Fry and Oscar Wilde

These two European men both have stunningly similar looks! Wilde was a playwright and Fry is an actor and writer, so they’ve also got pretty similar lifestyles!

Stalin and Sacha Baron Cohen

Albert Einstein and Shia LaBeouf

In probably the best comparison ever, American actor Shia LaBeouf looks just like the famed German physicist Albert Einstein! Just much young and way less of that crazy awesome hair he ended up growing out! Maybe Shia will have the same fate?

Rupert Grint and Sir David Wilkie

Although Grint is English and Wilkie is Scottish, they could very well share a bloodline!

Charles Darwin and George Carlin

Although they look very much alike, Darwin and Carlin couldn’t have lived more different lives! Carlin was a famous stand-up comedian and actor, while Darwin was a naturalist, geologist, and biologist.

Zach Galifianakis and Louis Vuitton

This hilarious and nonsensical actor and comedian resembles the very stoic and successful fashion designer. What a hilarious comparison! I’m sure their personalities did not match at all.

John Locke and Adrien Brody

The American actor and English philosopher have both got narrow faces and long noses. They must have similar a heritage!

Oscar Wilde and Hugh Grant

Another Oscar Wilde comparison, but it’s valid! Their faces are near identical. It’s kind of funny, too, since Stephen Fry and Hugh Grant look nothing alike!

Bruce Willis and General Douglas MacArthur

Well, now we know who should be playing MacArthur in the next World War II film!

Robert Pattinson has a mystery dopplegänger from the 1800’s. One thing is for sure, and that is their dreamy hair!

Paul Giamatti and William Shakespeare

The English playwright and American actor have very similar hairstyles, both on their head and on their face!

These two men both have that smoldering eye look going on. Was Hermann Rorschach the Brad Pitt of his time? Or is Brad Pitt the Hermann Rorschach of our time?

Despite their looks, these two men could not be more different. Phelps has a swimming career, while Lamb had a writing career in England!

Henry Ward Beecher and Jon Stewart

One thing that this Daily Show host and American glergyman and speaker is their dedication to politics! Well, and their looks. That is just assumed, though.

Paul Revere and Jack Black

The British are coming! And so is Tenacious D!

Lena Horne and Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys and Lena Horne don’t just have their amazingly good looks in common! They are both singers and songwriters, as well as black women who are passionate about civil rights.

George Washington Michael Douglas

It must be flattering to get compared to America’s first president!

Charlie Sheen and John Brown

David Duchovny

This is absolutely David Duchovny in a past life, I can just tell.

Bill Murray and Edgar Allen Poe

You can kind of see it, can’t you?

Florence Wlch and John of Arc

These are two pretty powerful and influential women! And, they are both firey redheads!

Vincent Van Gogh and Chuck Norris

Chuck may have a stronger jawline, but they are oh-so similar everywhere else.

Franklin Pierce and Nick Jonas

It’s just luck that there’s a photo of Nick Jonas wearing a very similiar outfit to his presidential dopplegänger.

Hank Azaria and Rudolf Steiner

Hank Azaria is very famous for his The Simpsons character Homer Simpson, while Rudolf Steiner is vrey famous for his philosphies and social reforms.

Christopher Lloyd and John Calhoun

John Calhoun was the seventh VP of the United States, and is basically reincarnated by Christopher Lloyd in the Back to the Future movies!

Bill Bailey and Thomas Hobbes

Bill Bailey is an English comedian and personality, and Thomas Hobbes was an English philosopher. The resemblance is uncanny, they have to share some sort of bloodline!

Socrates and Anthony Hopkins

As he gets older, Anthony Hopkins looks more and more like the philosopher Socrates. He’d play the perfect part for a new age film about him!

Christian Bale

Bale is strikingly similar to an unknown Civil War soldier. This photograph says it all!
