Celeb couples who legit share the same face

There is this weird theory that people are attracted to partners who share similar facial features to their own. Over time and as they age, those similarities become more and more prevalent until BAM! You’ve got a couple that look so eerily alike that it makes you feel a little weird in the guts. A couple who takes one of those Face Swap pics and it just comes out looking like a regular photo. A couple who kinda look like they could have been spawned by the same family tree. Ewwwww.

After a convo Monty and I had on our latest ep of our podcast, we thought it’d be a bit of fun to find some really great celeb examples for a bit of Sunday night good times.


Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard

Not only do this husband and wife duo have the matching double ‘a’ in their surnames, they’ve also got matching faces. Cool

Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid

Courteney has been dating her mirror image boyf, Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, since 2013.

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren

There’s an urban legend that the more money you make, the more you start to look like your significant other.* These two are practically twins.

Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser

I mean, if you were to tell me that these two were birthed from the same woman, I wouldn’t question it.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell

Our fave celeb Mum and Dad are starting to morph a little into each other.. and we dig it.

Cynthia Nixon and Christine Mariononi

Red hair – Check. Kind eyes – Check. Smug smile of complete happiness – Check.

Adam Brody and Leighton Meester

These two were in similar teen dramas with The OC and Gossip Girl. After getting hitched in 2014, we also realised that they had similar faces.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter

No arguments over whether the kids look like Mum or Dad with this couple!

Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef

Look, I ain’t into threesomes, but I’d make an exception for Ricky Martin and his doppelgänger husband, Jwan.

I’d be prepared to make that exception several times, actually.

Steph and Ayesha Curry

THOSE EYES! Champion B-baller Steph Curry and wife Ayesha legit have the same face with different hair dos.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart

Could the fact that these two were starting to morph into the same person be the real reason behind their break up?

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian

I mean, you can say these two didn’t share a uterus at some point… but I’m verrrrrry skeptical.

*No there’s not.
