Lookalike Actresses

Posted Friday, June 13, 2008, 6:28 PM

There are a few actors around and about that sort of look sort of similar to each other. Some are famously so, like Skeet Ulrich and Johnny Depp, or Leelee Sobieski and Helen Hunt. But here are two sets of four who I think could easily play siblings in a movie. Maybe all the same movie.


Jennifer Garner, who was in the movie Daredevil as Elektra; Hilary Swank, who won an Oscar as a boxer in Million Dollar Baby; Amanda Peet, who has been in a bunch of things I've never seen, but I do remember her in Whole Nine Yards; and Missy Peregrym, who was in Heroes, and more recently Reaper. All have a remarkably similar appearance: dark hair; chiselled boyish face; prominent toothy smiles; a tall, limber, rangy frame, useful for the often physical roles they get asked to play. I say they could easily be very convincing as sisters in a film.

Preferably a porn film, but failing that, any kind of movie would work.


Jake Gyllenhaal, who was in Donnie Darko and Brokeback Mountain; Tobey Maguire, known as Spider-Man; Daniel Radcliffe, the rather well known Harry Potter movies; and Elijah Wood, one of my favourite child actors who is now most famous for Lord of the Rings. They also share similarities in their appearance: Medium to short; dark hair; distinctive blue eyes; and youthful faces. In fact, Jake and Tobey are playing brothers in a movie, appropriately called "Brothers", even as we speak, so I am not alone in that estimation, at least.

With the girls, Jennifer Garner sticks out the most for me, and with the guys, the bottom 2 and the top 2 match, but not the pairs.

I've just seen ps I love you and all the time I was keep thinking I'm looking at Amanda Peet (or her sister :)).
To be fair Hilary was great in it.

Vinessa Shaw (From the Hills Have Eyes) is missing from the actresses

Even though I don't know her, that's a good call. She is quite the Hilary Swank-alike.
