Which celebrities do you always get mixed up?

Asked by erichw1504 (26448points) March 31st, 2011

You see them everywhere. In movies, on television, the internet, magazines, advertisements, and so on. A few of them are bound to look, act or feel the same. Sometimes to a point where you often get them confused between each other.

“Oh, wasn’t he the guy from that movie? No, that was this guy, but they do look alike.”

So, who do you often mix up? Is it because they look alike, act similar, or another reason? How often do you get them confused?

erichw1504's avatar

@gailcalled Jon and Matthew, awesome! Did you see the 2.5 Men episode where Alan uses it to his advantage?

gailcalled's avatar

@erichw1504: Sad to say, I manage my life without watching 2.5 Men. And you mean that someone other than me thought of this already?

erichw1504's avatar

@gailcalled Yes, Jon Cryer’s character claims to be Matthew Broderick in order to get his brother help quicker at the hospital. Sorry.

MilkyWay's avatar

I get Selena Gomez and Demi Lavato mixed up…they’re pretty similiar in terms of what they do….

Supacase's avatar

Oh yes, there are two Disney girls I get confused. One is Bailey on Suite Life and the other is the blond on Good Luck Charlie.

Also, all of those teen boys with swiped bangs and dark hair look the same to me.

erichw1504's avatar

Vin Desil, Bruce Willis, and
Jason Statham (the guy from crank and the mechanic)

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Amy Adams and Isla Fisher, as said above. I know the difference, but I always get them mixed up at first glance.
Penelope Cruz and Paz Vega could be sisters, I have a very hard time telling them apart.

blueiiznh's avatar

Also Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz…. Add Paz Vega and my head spins…

erichw1504's avatar

@queenie how about now?

MilkyWay's avatar

@erichw1504 You know I wasn’t talking about that one…
I actually quite like that ”swiped bangs and dark hair” look…

Bill Pullman and Bill Paxton. I never remember which Bill is which.

Anyhow, since I got older and stopped knowing the names of the young celebrities, I get everyone mixed-up. Who is Selena Gomez? Is Blake Lively a girl or a boy? Geesh.

Supacase's avatar

@erichw1504 I am thinking of the ones that hit about at the eyebrow. Like Bieber.

@mazingerz88 I am very good at distinguishing celebrities but Amy and Isla always get me!

aprilsimnel's avatar

For a while, I couldn’t distinguish between Zooey Deshanel and Kate Perry.

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

Susan Dey (Partrige Family fame) and Katharyn Erbe (Law and Order: Criminal Intent) look eerily alike to me.

Michael Douglas and Kurt Russell.
