Tom Hiddleston is Not Actually Eddie Redmayne's Twin & Other Celeb Double Takes

Wait... hang on. Who is that again? It’s on the tip of my tongue. He was in that movie with Amy Adams. No wait. He was in Troy, right? This kind of confusion happens to the best of us — we get celebs confused all of the time (and we are all, in fact, turning into our mothers). Let’s set the record straight, Tom Hiddleston is Loki in Thor and The Avengers and Eddie Redmayne was in Les Mis. One slings, the other sings. HEY-OOOO! Both are dashing charmers from across the pond who have been popping up all over Hollywood these days and by the looks of things, we’ll be seeing a whoooooooole lot more of these fellas. Not that anyone is complaining. We just may be in a new wave of a Hollywood British Invasion (Thanks a lot, Cumberbatch. No really, that wasn’t sarcastic. THANK YOU).

Who would ever want to turn away from Hiddleston? Don’t worry Eddie, we’ve got EYES for you too (see what I did there?)... just, you know, don’t be upset if we confuse you from time to time with that other English actor with those piercing hazel orbs of enchantment and sharp facial features, and you know, all of that really, really good acting.

Alas, these classically trained Eton AND Cambridge alums (seriously? you went to the same prep school AND university? come on now, you’re just making this impossible) aren’t the only celebs we get jumbled up from time to time.

Here’s our list of most-likely-separated-at-birth celebrity twins.

Eddie Redmayne

Now click back to the last slide. SEE WHAT I MEAN HERE? Also, Happy Friday.

Javier Bardem

You know this guy as the multitalented shapeshifter who can be a brooding sexy artist in Vicky Cristina Barcelona as well as one craaaaaaaazy ass muhfuggah in No Country For Old Men. But he just might also be...

Jeffrey Dean Morgan

No, he actually hasn't starred in Live Flesh or Skyfall. Apparently, he was born in "Seattle, Washington" and not "Canary Islands, Spain" like his obvious twin. Yeah, sure I'LL BELIEVE THAT. Never.

Oh Lila Garrity, is it Riggins or is it Street? Did you ever find your calling? DID YOU EVER FIND YOUR LONG LOST SISTER?

Leighton Meester

Who is obviously Leighton Meester! Clear eyes, full hearts, XoXo Gossip Girl.

Chelsea Handler

Chelsea Handler once berated Conan O'Brien in a shower and the world became a better place.

Elizabeth Banks

Handler also shares her sharp sense of humor and possibly genetics with Elizabeth Banks. In a perfect world, Avery Jessup would go head to head with Handler on their respective (fictional and real) shows.

Amy Adams

Everything Amy Adams touches becomes immediately delightful. She stole our hearts in Enchanted, cooked like Julia, and when combined on screen with Kermit the Frog made levels of squee nearly impossible to handle.

Isla Fisher

BRAIN MELTING. Okay, okay. Isla is also incredibly delightful and ever so charming on screen. She was in Wedding Crashers, Now You See Me, and The Great Gatsby just to keep things straight here. Ah, screw it, I've already confused her with Amy in my head.

Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell is a man of many trades: An Anchorman, a Cubs announcer (HEY!), a NASCAR driver, a Spartan cheerleader, and a George Bush impersonator extraordinaire, just to name a few.

Chad Smith

Kevin Winter/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

Aaaaaaaaand apparently Will Ferrell is also the drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Who knew?

Jordin Sparks

Jason Merritt/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

No, Jordin Sparks did not star in Ugly Betty and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

America Ferarra

That was America Ferarra. I can't help but wonder if she sings Sparks at karaoke just to mess with people. I know I would.

Katy Perry

Julien M. Hekimian/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

Katy, you're a fiiiiiiiiiirework. We love to hear you roar. We love your burgeoning position as a figure who speaks out about the status of women. We just wish you'd open up about your twin.

Zooey Deschanel

Theo Wargo/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

I know I know. This one is a little obvious. But c'mon, wouldn't a night out or a duet album with Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel be totally weird, feminist, and fun?

Mischa Barton

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

Mischa! Where have you been these days?

Elijah Wood

Carlos Alvarez/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

Oh? Just hanging out in Middle Earth? That's cool, Mischa.

Robin Williams

Kevin Winter/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

Okay, so no one is actually that crazy about The Crazy Ones. Why not get back to what you're best at doing?

Saving the world and fronting U2.

Dennis Quaid

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

Dennis Quaid! He's in everything! He's everyone's dad in every movie ever!

The actor I most confuse Dennis Quaid with is in fact Dennis Quaid.
