Hollywood has absolutely no faith in audiences. If they think you liked something, they’re so overanxious to play it safe that they’ll sell it to you twice. We’ve had twin movies as far back as memory serves: movies that have near-identical plots and are essentially the same right down to their release dates. Wyatt Earp & Tombstone. Dante’s Peak & Volcano. Armageddon & Deep Impact. Antz & A Bug’s Life. Infamous & Capote. And on and on. The interesting thing though is that we don’t just have twin movies, we have twin stars too. Hollywood thinks we like familiar things. Familiar faces. And of course, plastic surgeons can only make so many noses. Everyone wants the Liv Tyler lips and the Salma Hayek tits. We can’t be surprised when they come off the assembly line looking a little too similar.
Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan: are they actually the same person?
Amy Adams and Isla Fisher: they don’t just look alike, they sound alike too!
Will Arnett and Patrick Wilson: even losing hair at the same rate!
Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard: sharing the same bottle of Miss Clairol since 2001.
Jesse Plemmons and Matt Damon: even their accents are the same!
Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer: yup, that’s two different people. Same damn jaw.
Paz Vega and Penelope Cruz: they usually say that a woman this stunning “broke the mold” but that’s clearly not the case.
Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe: these two look so alike it’s creepy. Watch this face meld of the two of them and you won’t be able to distinguish one face from the other.
