You may remember that scene from I Love You, Man in which Jason’s Segel’s character Sydney Fife explains the term bowsers — people who look like their pet dogs — to Paul Rudd’s Peter Klaven. And of course, we're also all aware of what it means to have a doppelganger out there in the world, thanks in particular to that long-running storyline on How I Met Your Mother .
But have you ever stopped searching for your own doppelganger long enough to think about the all-important celebrity doppelganger? We’re not talking everyday people who look like celebrities, or even celebrities who look like other celebrities (we can’t be the only ones who confuse Javier Bardem with Jeffrey Dean Morgan or Nina Dobrev with Victoria Justice, right?). We’re talking about celebrities who look like — wait for it — dogs. Yes, dogs.
We’ve tracked down the best celebrity and dog breed lookalikes. So go ahead: See it and woof.
