Celebrities are known for their looks and certain characteristics that make them unique, but apparently, these celebrities had a double somewhere in the world many years ago.
MARK ZUCKERBERG AND FELIPE IV OF SPAIN
Although there are almost 500 years of difference between one and the other, it is impressive to see the similarity that the founder of Facebook (and one of the wealthiest young people in the world) has with the Spanish king who ruled in the seventeenth century.
Under Felipe IV’s reign, Spain had to give up the independence of Portugal and face the bloody war of 30 years.
LEONARDO DICAPRIO AND JUDY ZIPPER
The actor from ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ is hyper known worldwide. What he did not know was that he had a double in the past.
Judy Zipper appeared out of nowhere in a yearbook from the sixties that one of her granddaughters published on the Internet. There she is radiant when she was young … and with a disturbing resemblance to the interpreter of Titanic.
SYLVESTER STALLONE AND POPE GREGORY IX
The remembered actor of ‘Rambo’ and ‘Rocky’ saga may not have left his acting mark in Hollywood. Still, perhaps his thing goes back to history, and nothing more and nothing less than the history of Christianity, properly.
The American interpreter bears a striking resemblance to Pope No. 178 of the Catholic Church, a High Pontiff from 1227 to 1241.
BRAD PITT AND HERMAN RORSCHACH
So dissimilar in their profession in life, but so physically alike. So are the actor Brad Pitt and the Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who authored the test that bears his name
The difference between the two is that Rorschach died in 1922, more than 40 years before the protagonist of ‘Inglorious Bastards’ was born.
NICOLAS CAGE AND HIS ‘DOUBLE’ FROM THE TIME OF CIVIL WAR
Of this elaborate list of celebrities and their doubles from the past, Nicolas Cage’s is probably the one that shocks the most.
The actor was born in the 19th century in the middle of the American Civil War. His resemblance to an unknown man from Tennessee opens up much speculation.
CHRISTINA AGUILERA AND ACTRESS GINGER ROGERS
Ginger is one of the great Hollywood myths. She walked her beauty and acting virtue during a 62-year career, where she won, for example, an Oscar.
The resemblance of this authentic diva who participated in 73 films with the singer Christina Aguilera is remarkable. Both blondes have a striking physical resemblance.
JACK BLACK AND PAUL REVERE
Between the comic actor who starred in films like ‘Nacho Libre’ or the remake of ‘King Kong’ and the American patriot, there are more than 200 years of difference.
However, the hero who headlined “The Midnight Ride” and the comedian have almost identical facial features, as seen in these two images.
ALEC BALDWIN AND PRESIDENT MILLARD FILLMORE
He wouldn’t have believed it in a million years. But the 13th president of the United States would find more than 150 years after his death a ‘double’ who not only physically resembled him but would also be a shining figure in the world of American cinema.
The similarity in the face of the famous actor Alec Baldwin with that of the 13th president of the United States is incredible.
PETER DINKLAGE AND A WORK BY THE PAINTER DIEGO VELÁZQUEZ
“Portrait of Sebastián de Morra” is one of the best-known works of the Spanish painter of the Baroque times.
This great artist (and Sebastián de Morra) did not expect that 400 years later, he would have an exact ‘replica’ in the actor Peter Dinklage. Remarkable!
JAY-Z AND A HARLEM MAN FROM 1939
Who would say that the rapper would have a double? It is rare to find someone who resembles Jay Z in such a way as this character from the past.
At least that’s what one would think when comparing a photo of rapper Jay-Z and a man who lived in Harlem, in East New York, during the 1930s. Was Beyoncé’s husband born in the early 1900s? We will not know, but the doubt remains.
