They Could Be Twins...Or Not

I've been feeling rather random lately, so I thought it would be time for a good old post of randomness. One of my favorite websites to visit when I'm bored is MyHeritage, where you can upload a picture and figure out which famous people you look like. It all depends on the picture, of course. Sometimes when I submit my own picture, I'll get someone like Amanda Bynes or Lucille Ball, which makes me feel pretty good about myself and then other times, I'll be told I look like a combination between Haley Joel Osment and Chelsea Clinton during her awkward stage.

Anyways, enough about me and my celebrity twins. This post was slightly influenced by Ginger's recent post on the similarities between George Clooney and Dana Andrews. Many of today's celebrities do bear striking resemblances to classic film stars, but it can be hard to notice this unless you see pictures of them side by side. In order to find out which stars could possibly be twins, I decided to upload photos of classic stars and here are the results...

Audrey Hepburn, your twins are Keira Knightley and Alicia Keys. I can see the resemblance to Keira, but I don't think I have ever heard anyone say that Alicia Keys looked like Audrey Hepburn...

Hmm....perhaps there is a bit of Bette Davis blood in the Barrymore family. As for the guy, he looks more like a creeper than a Bette Davis lookalike.

Apparently, Cary Grant is a mix between Chad Michael Murray and Hugh Hefner. While Chad is quite cute, he could never hold a candle to Cary. On the other hand, Hugh could get pretty darn close. They even have matching pipes, how adorable!
Ooh, Michael Vartan....I like him, but he's no Clark Gable. As for the photo of Jacques Rogge (President of the International Olympic Committee), I bet you had to look at it twice and say "Oh my gosh! It's as if Clark Gable came back to life!"
How could I possibly resist seeing what celebrities look like Ginger! I absolutely love Evangeline Lilly, so I was glad to see her show up on the list. Aretha is great too, but I don't think I could see her dancing with Fred Astaire. Although, I do think she would look fabulous in Ginger's famous feather dress! Can you say DIVA?
Coming to a theater near you, Bogart: The Movie, starring David Hasselhoff as Humphrey Bogart. Hmmm....that would be interesting.

Yes, Joan Crawford looks like a young Al Pacino. Just look at those eyebrows! Its as if Pacino was the only kid to escape the claws of Mommie Dearest.Seriously, I think William Holden and Ian McKellan could be twins! They have the exact same eyes and very similar noses. The second one just made me giggle. He is a Japanese actor and boy band member. Look at that face, doesn't it just scream "William Holden!"

This is some fabulous randomness. I think the Audrey/Alicia Keyes thing is just the upturned eyes/eye makeup. The one thing I don't like about the matches is that sometimes the results seem to be based more on the angle than the features. (Wow, random guy with a hat can turn his head just like Bette Davis!) Great fun, anyway.

Every time I do myheritage, I always get an Asian man or woman. I have no idea why but I think it's hilarious. William Holden and the Japanese boy bander look so much alike. lol

Millie said...

This is SO funny!

Audrey and Keira do look rather alike.

Strange, since she is supposed to play Eliza Doolittle in a "My Fair Lady" re-make.

Maybe that's how the producers decided who star in it...LOL!

Sarah said...

Evangeline Lilly does look a bit like Ginger! And never thought of the Hasselhoff looking like Bogie. Creepy! And as Wendy said, this IS some fabulous randomness.

Nik said...

That is so cool.

I think the closest match would have to be Audrey-Keira.



Ginger Ingenue said...

Fun, fun. :)

I like MyHeritage too. But I often get Joan Crawford...blah.

I've thought about doing a series based on what modern star looks like an old star, or at least acts like them.

There's gonna be a MY FAIR LADY remake??! Yikes... ;)

Wendy: Yeah, I guess MyHeritage probably counted Alicia's eye makeup in the analysis. I agree, a lot of times its based on angles.

Nicole: I always get some Asian celebrity, too!

Millie: Hmmm...a My Fair Lady remake. I wonder how that will turn out. I do think Audrey and Keira look a lot alike.

Sarah: I don't think I'll ever look at Bogie the same, unfortunately. Thanks, I was feeling pretty random : )

Nik: Thanks, well I guess MyHeritage should be thanked for this post. I simply uploaded the pics : )

Emily: I would have to agree with you. I had never thought of those two looking alike until I did this.

Ginger: I too have had Joan show up on my list. It's better than getting awkward Chelsea Clinton!

That would be a really awesome series to do!

I hadn't heard of the My Fair Lady remake either. I hate remakes, but I'll probably end up seeing it anyways.
