They say that each person has seven lookalikes in the world, which roughly means that every single person has a double. While this theory leaves much to be desired, the following list contains 15 pictures of celebrities and their historical doppelgangers, all of which are pretty amazing!
On a related note, if you happen to be interested in look-alikes, make sure you check out photographer Francois Brunelle’s latest project, in which he has photographed unrelated look-alikes from across the world; an interesting project if there ever was one.
1. Michael Cera
The “Juno” actor bears a striking resemblance to the woman in this 1940 painting of Dona Carmen Arconda by Spanish painter Ignacio Zuloaga.
2. Keanu Reeves
Keanu Reeves looks like he’s stepped right out of this 1875 picture of French actor Paul Mounet – an absolute dead ringer for the actor, facial hair included.
3. Justin Timberlake
4. Conan O’Brien
5. Alec Baldwin
Joseph G. Kolans (photograph, 1964) was an Army veteran and member of the Detroit Sportsman Congress, along with being Alec Baldwin’s doppelgänger.
