What is a doppelgänger? A doppelgänger is a German word which has entered the English language and means a non-biologically related look-alike or double of a living person. The word literally translates to “double-goer”.
After seeing these celebrity photos you will be asking yourself if you too have a doppelgänger of your own. In the small world of celebrities, finding a lookalike seems to be easier than one would think. Not only do many of these celebrities share similar faces, but also heights and body proportions. It seems finding your lookalike isn’t limited to geographical location as several of these famous names cross borders, continents and even racial and language barriers.
A few weeks ago a shoplifter got caught on CCTV in Blackpool, England. The internet went wild with the police footage of... David Schwimmer shoplifting! The guy was seen carrying a box of beers right in front of the security camera. Not so smart if you ask the average Joe. But when you think about it, if you look like someone else, why would you care if you're on the internet?!
