15 Celebrity Lookalikes of Different Races
Pretty much all of us in life would agree that there are other people out there in the world that look a tad like us. And some will even go the whole hog and tell you about their beliefs in the idea of the ‘doppelgänger’, a precise twin or replica of you being out there somewhere, walking the streets. When you think about your double, the chances are that you’re picturing that person in your mind’s eye. Looking, obviously, a lot like you. With the same ethnicity and race and creed, are we right? Well, maybe you’re wrong. What if your replica is from a different ethnic background, huh? Hey, it happens. And here’s proof. Here are 15 celebrity lookalikes of different races…
Let’s start with former model and singer Mark ‘Marky Mark’ Wahlberg. Who’d have thought that they’d ever see the day where they were looking at an Asian Mark Wahlberg, huh? Least of all Boston-born Mark himself. Only, a little known fact is that the actor was arrested in his early days for a vicious attack on a Vietnamese man.
Until today we have never once realized that Snoop Dogg and Adrian Brody look so similar. It’s weird because we’ve known of both for what seems like forever, yet we’ve never had the epiphany. When we think about it, we’ve never seen them in the same room together. Mind you, that’s mostly because we don’t really hang out with celebrities. So there you go – Adrian Brody looks like Snooooooooooooop.
George Clooney has always been a good-looking man, but it seems that he just keeps on getting better and better with age. He’s like a fine wine, an excellent cheese or Helen Mirren. And here we see him with his exact stranger twin, an Indian man who simply has to be a huge smash with the ladies back in his homeland. He’s a silver fox who looks like the guy from ER ferchrissakes!
Now that’s NOT Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid on the right but he kind of looks like it, doesn’t he? Who he also looks like is the dude on the left, the very famous – and very black – Morgan Freeman. See? We told you that ethnicity doesn’t really matter when it comes to lookalikes. And here’s even further proof.
How do you like this one then? It’s Canadian singer, rapper and former actor Drake. Now, again – Drake a black dude. But his doppelgänger? An old white guy from the 1960’s or 70’s. Both are smiley, mind. Very, very smiley. We reckon that the white dude could probably come up with some better dance moves for Hotline Bling, though…
Now, you may need to use your imaginations a little here and be prepared to suspend your disbelief somewhat. But bear with us… Okay, the Asian guy on the right is noticeably slimmer and shorter than Bruce Willis, but do what Bruce and his Oriental cousin are doing and squint… Doing it? Great. Now look. Separated at birth, right? Sure!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is many things to many people: actor, statesman, former governor, bodybuilder, Austrian, pervy dude who touched them up… But if there’s one thing that Arnie isn’t, it’s a black fella. But if you saw the guy on the right somewhere, you’d be forgiven for thinking that maybe the Terminator and Commando star was. Peas in a pod!
Here we see the former leader of the free world and President of the United States George W Bush and his truck-driving Nepalese twin. You can make your own jokes about how the guy on the right could have made a better president, we really can’t be bothered. Plus we’re just too distracted by just how similar these two look. We wonder if he has a brother that looks like Jeb.
More cross-ethnic background Presidential doppelgänger madness now as we see the current incumbent keeping The White House warm, Barack Obama. His twin? An east Asian guy who manages to be even more of smiler than the Prez. Look at him there – beaming and showing off his pearly whites. Hey, the USA is looking for another President soon… Has anyone got this guy on the right’s number? Let’s give him a go. Why not?
Maybe if there’s one celebrity that you don’t want to be compared or likened to – it’s Kobe Bryant. Whether you’re white, black or purple, being told you look like a, well, you know what we’re getting at. Now, unless you are the kind of person who settles assault accusations out of court, this is a lookalike you probably wouldn’t be all that happy about. Unless people started accidentally paying you his salary.
Did you know that Joseph Gordon Levitt is actually a depressed Japanese Kung Fu master? Nope, nor did we until recently. Until we found what we though was irrefutable evidence of the fact. Until it turned out just to be two photos of a pair of men who happened to look a bit like each other. One being the kid from Third Rock From the Sun, the other being a fella from the far east.
Nicolas Cage is known for making tons and tons of garbage movies, isn’t he? Terrible science fiction flicks, lame action movies, weird fantasy stuff. But one type of film we’ve not seen him in is a blaxploitation one. Mind you, with his black double seen here, we know have a pretty decent idea of what he’d look like if he decided to ever make one. And, with his record of terrible career decisions, who knows? He just might one day.
It’s Alfonso Ribeira… Otherwise known as Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The dorkey cousin of Will Smith’s cooler leading man, he was the whitest black due in town. But if you’ve ever been curious to see what he’d actually look like if he was really white, than just check out his twin here on the right. A white cop!
Did you see that meme that went viral recently about Matt Damon? About how some of the biggest films of the last few decades were about rescuing Matt Damon from far away places (Saving Private Ryan, Interstellar, The Martian). It was funny. Anyway, he has a doppelgänger from a different ethnic background too. And this is our absolute favorite…
And we’re going to leave you on this one here. The famous face? None other than the dashing Brad Pitt. Husband to Angelina Jolie and star of such fare as Thelma & Louise, Se7en and Inglorious Basterds, the world’s most bankable star has an Asian twin who we’re guessing does pretty well with the ladies…
