They say everyone has a doppelganger — a physical double — somewhere in the world. But as these photos show, we might all have lookalikes from the past too.
A lot of celebrities have a look about them that you would think would be hard to replicate. A unique face that you wouldn’t expect to see on anyone else.
But if these pictures of historic characters from the past are anything to go by, it looks as they all might have lived double lives in the past.
From Ellen DeGeneres and Henry David Thoreau to Jack Black and the Barber of Seville, these celebrity historical doppelgangers are uncanny.
