12 Celebrities We All Like to Pretend Are Our Doppelgängers, But Let's Be Honest, It's Almost Never True — PHOTOS

Whether you'll openly admit it or not, you have a celebrity or two that you secretly think you look like. Sometimes, that belief is eerily true, but for the most part, it isn't. But we are all guilty of these secret thoughts, even if our only basis is "I have curly brown hair and blue eyes too—we're basically twins!" Throughout the years, I have pretended I could be the doppelgänger of Alexis Bledel, Zooey Deschanel, Emma Stone, Julia Roberts, Helena Bonham Carter, and Elisabeth Moss, depending on my hair color/length at the time. These are all filthy lies, but I like sitting on my throne of lies, thankyouverymuch. Let's explore some other popular celebs who are often coveted as look-alikes.

Taylor Swift

Are you tall, blonde, and known for your killer red lipstick? 2 out of 3? Close enough! With a guitar slung over your shoulder and a kitty under your arm, you’ll be stopping to sign autographs in no time.

Christina Hendricks

Hey there, busty redhead! I bet you’re driving all of the men mad with your sexy curves and fiery hair! Or at least that’s what your Tinder bio says.

Tina Fey

One time when you told someone that you wanted to be a television writer, they replied, “Oh, like Tina Fey?” and you’ve rolled with it ever since. But put down the Cheetos, put on those classic tortoise shell glasses and look around you—how many Emmys do you have?

Michelle Williams and/or Carey Mulligan

I pretty much can’t tell them apart, so you can claim double the doppels! Michelle is whimsy and cute, but Carey is married to Marcus Mumford. You really can’t go wrong either way.

Lupita Nyong'o

I understand why someone would want to emulate her: she’s perfect. But unless you also have the skin of a goddess, a phenomenal fashion sense, a charmingly sincere demeanor, and talent rivaling Meryl’s, then keep on moving.

Sofia Vergara

Congrats on (not) making the Maxim Hot 100 List and being ranked 2014’s 32nd most powerful woman in the world (false) by Forbes! Being a curvy Latina is awesome, but unfortunately doesn’t automatically make you as awesome as she is.

Nicki Minaj

This one’s easy: The controversial “Anaconda” singer changes her look as often as most of us change our underwear. Not a blonde? Wait a week; I’m sure it’ll be pink soon. Or blue. There’s something for everyone!

Curvy and proud? Check. Make-up on point? Check, usually. British? Maybe check. Unmatchable voice? Um, no check, not even close. That got worse as it went on, didn’t it?

Kim Kardashian

In her quest to #BreakTheInternet, Kim has vowed to appear on every list, ever, so of course I couldn’t leave her off of a celebrity look-alike list. Even if you have a proportions like Kim does (after Photoshop), there can only be one Kim Kardashian. (Thank God for that…)

I’ve seen at least 5 Lordes every Halloween since “Royals” came out, and even 2 or 3 on a regular day. Wait—those aren’t Lordes! Those are just women with curly brown hair who wear dark lipstick and a lot of black. Hell, maybe I’ll join the “I am (basically) Lorde” movement—I have those 3 things!

Iggy Azalea

First things first, she’s the realest. Second things second, you are not. With sick beats and that enviable hair, Iggy is one of a kind. Well, kind of.

Vanessa Hudgens

Within your friend group, you’re known as the semi-hippie, bohemian one. Vanessa is known as that too—but to the whole world. Flower headbands and floor length skirts are a necessary part of her look, and all body types are welcome to apply to join her at Coachella.
