Beetlejuice star Alec Baldwin is the good old man of Hollywood who has got plenty more to boast in the limelight.

The Princess Diaries fame Anne Hathaway is nothing less than an epitome of brilliance. The Ocean's 8 starlet who's known for her on-screen elegance, might look like a colorful painting, but here, maybe her artist chose to think the other way. While Hathaway shares some similarities with Francisco Goya's 'An Officer' painting, perhaps she could've looked a bit better if the art were of a woman!

While cameras were unheard of, the royals around the globe didn't wait for one! They preferred a portrait of them instead and hired the best painters in the kingdom to get the colorful job done at ease. But the King of Portugal, Philip IV of Spain, wouldn't have imagined about his lookalike who would rule the social media world in the 21st century! Mark Zuckerberg's resemblance to the Spanish king is too picture-perfect to spot even a minor difference.

The Due Date star who is having a high-rise career in Hollywood might have fallen in love with fashion all of a sudden! If not now, maybe before a century!

Though the two legends are famous in their respective professions, their resemblance unites them before anything else.

Though stardom doesn't come easy for all, Brody seemed to have made an excellent name for himself in the world of successful stars.

Perhaps not Brody himself, but his doppelganger and the "Father of Liberalism," John Locke managed to spread enlightenment during the 1600s.

American comedian Ellen DeGeneres makes a perfect host and actress. Her bold mimics are always coated with humor elements, making every conversation lively and entertaining. DeGeneres is a writer too, and maybe this could be the reason why her doppelganger, Henry David Thoreau, was a famous essayist in the 1800s! Though the two of them differ in the gender category, their resemblance is an epitome of pure perfection.

Glenn Close and George Washington

Still, her doppelganger seems to be an iconic political marvel of the U.S. Close's striking resemblance with George Washington's features might remind the old saying—History repeats itself!

Canadian actor Keanu Reeves might seem straight out of an action-adventure. But in reality, he's a famous star just like the other celebs known in and around Hollywood.

American actor Eddie Murphy is a popular name in Hollywood. The Beverley Hills Cop star might have journeyed through years of hard work and success in the industry, but it seems he has left something in the past!

Titanic's Jack Dawson, aka Leonardo DiCaprio, didn't manage to win Rose's heart alone! He is an evergreen sensation that rules Hollywood with all his wit, wisdom, and acting. But what if his doppelganger was a cute maiden who shared strikingly similar features of DeCaprio? Well, Judy Zipper, a woman who lived in the 1960s, is nothing less than the American actor's past personality.

Maybe what they say is right—History does repeat itself! Though the present-day icons are famous in their respective fields, their doppelgangers seem to have carved their names in history altogether. It's a never-ending belief that seven similar faces exist on the planet, but when famous people have their lookalikes from past, a new chapter is ultimately reborn.
