20 Celebrity Look A-Likes from History

Just ponder, if you will, for one minute, if time travel was possible…

Wouldn’t that be a truly amazing thing!

These images of people who lived in our past strike an uncanny similarity to a celebrity living today! Did they time travel – is it just a coincidence?  (it is… I don’t really believe in time travel, but I’m trying to make this exciting for you….)

They are just amazing!  Have a look through and wonder at their likenesses!

Jennifer Lawrence and Zubaida Tharwat

Check out the amazing likeness between the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence, and Egyptian actress, Zubaida Tharwat.   Zubaida was born in 1940 in Egypt and was famously known for her entrancing eyes, the similarities are astounding.  

Twins separated by time???

Leonardo DiCaprio and Judy Zipper

We all love Leo.  He is still as baby-faced today as he was when he first started in show business at age 11.  Judy Zipper was born in the 1960s and her picture was found in a yearbook where she was mistaken for the heart-throb, these two are almost identical like fraternal twins.

Bruce Willis and General Douglas MacArthur

General Douglas MacArthur was born in 1880 and served as an American five-star general in World War ll and looks exactly like Bruce Willis.  Perhaps even more like Bruce Willis then Bruce Willis himself.

Queen Latifah and Zora Neale Hurston

Zora Neale Hurston was an African American novelist and anthropologist.  She documented the racial struggles in the American South.  She died aged 69 in 1960. Queen Latifah (Dana Elaine Owens) is an American Rapper and Actress… and identical twin to Zora!

Ellen DeGeneres and Henry David Thoreau

Ellen is the rich and talented talk-show host that is married to our girl, Portia Derossi.  Her ‘Dobbleganger’ is Henry David Thoreau who was an American writer and historian.  He published books, essays and journals on natural history and philosophy. He died in 1862 at age 44.

The eyes have it!

Jimmy Fallon and Mahir Cayan

Now I didn’t believe this one at first, as Jimmy Fallon is known for his amazing disguises and the ability to imitate voices (and he can sing and dance…. damn talented thing he is.) Mahir Cayan was born in 1946 in Turkey and was a Turkish politician and a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary leader though was killed by soldiers in 1972. Just add a ‘Stash’ on Jimmy, and you have Mahir!

Mark Zuckerberg and Philip IV of Spain

The fleshy lips, the honker, the large forehead.  Mark Zuckerberg is a dead ringer for King Philip IV of Spain who reined from 1621 to 1665.

Martin Freeman and Elihu Root

Martin Freeman is a fantastically talented actor who starred in Fargo and Sherlock. His ‘Time Twin’ is Elihu Root.  Elihu was an American Lawyer who served as a Secretary of State under President Theodore Roosevelt.

Keanu Reeves and Paul Mounet

Keanu, star of that movie with the big waves at the end.  Star of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventures.  His Twin is Paul Mounet, a French actor and star of black and white movies in the late 19th Century. He died of heart disease in 1922.

Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou

You have a car, and you have a car, and YOU have a car!  Maya would of been alive and probably saw that episode of Oprah.  Maya Angelou is an American poet and Civil Rights Activist.  Maya passed away in 2014.

Jack Black and Paul Revere

Paul Revere was an American silversmith who lived in Boston Massachusetts in the 18th century.  Jack Black is a hilarious actor and singer who I kinda find hot….

Matthew McConaughey and Dr. Andrew Sanders

Alright Alright Alright!  Dr. Andrew Sanders lived in the 19th Century and looks exactly like Mathew McConaughey, great great great grandfather or time traveller?  We don’t know.  But we love that moustache!

Orlando Bloom and Nicolae Grigorescu

Nicolae Grigorescu is a Romanian painter and writer who died in 1907. Orlando Bloom used to be cool.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rose Wilder Lane

Rose Wilder Lane was born in 1886 and was an American journalist and political theorist. Maggie Gyllenhaal is an amazing actress with a really hot husband (and brother).

Brad Pitt and General Isaac Stevens

Isaac Stevens was born in  1818 was the first Governor of Washington Territory.  He passed away during the American Civil War. Brad Pitt looked great in Thelma and Louise.

Sylvester Stallone and Pope Gregory IX

Pope Gregory IX was born in 1212 who issued the Decretales, he died in 1241. Sylvester Stallone is a bad ass.  The nose is unmistakeable!

Alec Baldwin and Millard Fillmore

Millard Fillmore was born in the year 1800 and was the 13th President of the United States, he died in 1874. Alec Baldwin loves to scream obsenities down the phone to his daughter.  But the resemblence physically – whooahhhhhhhh.

Liam Neilson and Fidel Castro

Fidel Castro was born in 1926 who governed the Republic of Cuba as Prime Minister he died in 2016.  Liam Neilson was in Love Actually.

John Travolta and a Random 1860 Civil War Officer

All these amazing time travellers are famous today… Do they know something we don’t???
