While much of UC Berkeley has been preoccupied with the ASUC, we think it is important to take a step back and recognize the greater events in life for which we have no explanation: some celebrities look a lot alike and it makes everyone nervous. Either their parents have a lot of explaining to do, or celebrities need to find a new plastic surgeon who promotes diversity in the unnatural construction of these socially constructed false deities. Through extensive research, we present to you a compilation of celebrities who weirdly look too similar.
Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard:
While you probably never knew the names of these actresses, let alone that they are two different people, it is an indisputable fact that Chastain and Howard look almost identical. It wasn’t until this article that I learned the ginger bitch in Jurassic World was not Jessica Chastain, but was, in fact, Bryce Dallas Howard. Also, Bryce’s dad is Ron Howard and that’s pretty cool.
Damon Wayans and Damon Wayans Jr.:
This father and son duo look so much alike it makes me nervous. When I first saw Damon Wayans Jr. on New Girl as “Coach”, I thought it was the same actor from My Wife and Kids, the early 2000s situation comedy that for some reason is always playing on Teen Nick. Do people still watch that show? Subscribe and leave a comment below if you ever watched My Wife and Kids because honestly, it slapped.
Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana:
These two pop stars have an uncanny resemblance that I have never been able to understand. I think it’s so creative that Disney Channel even made a show about how much they look alike!! It was so creative to have Miley pretend to play the famous pop sensation, Hannah Montana! I wish they would take a picture side-by-side to show their similarities, but they never both seem to be in the same place at once…
Donald Glover and Childish Gambino:
Here we have another pairing that looks suspiciously alike. Donald Glover (left) is an actor most known for his role in the popular television show Community, while Childish Gambino (right) is a singer/songwriter who recently graced Indio Valley with his performance at Coachella. The two may be difficult to tell apart, but their different talents allow us to separate them as individuals. They recently collaborated in Gambino’s “This Is America” music video, which Glover starred in and even showed off some of his best dance moves!
Ted Cruz and The Zodiac Killer:
In Northern California in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Zodiac Killer plagued the population with multiple murders, still with unknown motivations. In the 2016 Presidential Election, Ted Cruz plagued America with his campaign, still with unknown motivations. While the two are most likely not the same person, the alignment of their goals of ruining the lives of individuals leaves us suspicious to believe that they might, in fact, be the same individual.
Noah Centineo and Jake T. Austin:
Now we know what you’re thinking, and yes, these are two different male actors. While their similar appearance may not be entirely obvious to the average individual, to the casting directors of the television drama series The Fosters, these two have no recognizable differences! When Jake T. Austin (right) left the series in 2015, his character of “Jesus Foster” was replaced by Noah Centineo (left) with no explanation for the audience. So clearly the Austin and Centineo are practically twins separated at birth, or the director of The Fosters thinks their audience is full of morons. Also, Noah Centineo’s neck is so wide.
Donald Trump and This Buffalo Chicken Wing I Found in a Dumpster:
This one is obvious. We’re a liberal publication at UC Berkeley…what do you expect?
The uncanny resemblance between many celebrities is not only concerning, but also sets an unfair standard of what it takes to become famous. Individuality is practically nonexistent, as you can see in this article, due to the similarity of the types of people the public responds to. It is up to our generation to change these standards and promote a world of difference! Looking like a buffalo chicken wing does not come easy to everyone, and it should be more accessible to the common person rather than only to the President of the United States.
