24 Spooky and Uncanny Doppelgänger Lookalikes
Most of us have been caught up in a conversation at some point in our life when someone has either said “You remind me of someone” or “I’m sure we’ve met before”. It is always good ice-breaker at a party, but a chat-up line that too many women have heard time and time again. But what if the person you are talking to is actually being genuine? After all, everyone is supposed to have a doppelgänger, or almost perfect lookalike, somewhere in the world, either past or present. One evening I was watching a film and nearly fell off the chair when I spotted someone who looked exactly as I did, but he spoke with a broad American accent. Over the next half an hour I had more than half a dozen phone calls from friends asking if I had seen myself on television! I am sorry to say that actor was not George Clooney or Tom Cruise, and I believe he is now probably as obscure a person as I am!

However after recently posting a list of 23 funny lookalikes we thought it would be quite a good idea to post some more images of people who look like….well….other people rather than an animal or inanimate object. We must admit when we saw one or two of these we were quite shocked at the resemblance, and we all now are beginning to think that reincarnation could be a distinct possibility.
