15 Times Actors Have Looked Spookily Like Their Real World Counterparts

Who would have thought that they could make Robert Downey Jr. Look exactly like Charlie Chaplain? It’s sort of amazing that it’s possible to find decent actors that also happen to look almost exactly like famous historical figures. But it keeps on happening. Except for that one instance with Leonardo DiCaprio in the J Edgar Hoover film where they piled so much makeup on him to look old you couldn’t listen to a word he was saying because you were to busy thinking how unnatural it all looked.

Some of the other stand outs include Cate Blanchett playing Bob Dylan in the film I’m Not There. Dylan was also played by Christian Bale and Heath Ledger in the same film.
