Siblings. Sometimes they can look alike. Sometimes they can look like different species. Sometimes the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Sometimes it was mashed up and made into baby food. But when it comes to these siblings, they look so dang stereotyped you'd swear they were twins but that second embryo kicked back and relaxed for a few extra dozen months.
Check out Miley and Noah Cyrus. It's like looking at a mirror — if one of their heads was a mirror.
Justice and Madison Reed went to Coachella this past year, but you could have told me that Justice and Justice Reed went to Coachella this year and I would have believed you. I would probably have asked you where Justice got her cloning device. And if the Soviets had anything to do with it.
When it comes to siblings, everyone has a favorite. Even parents. Parents especially have favorites. You can forget all that hogwash that they don't play favorites, because they do. And if you're the kid that has to ask, "Which one?" you've already lost the battle, friend. Dakota and Elle Fanning — which is your favorite? Because you know their folks have theirs.
Tall? Yes. Handsome? Yes. Square-jawed? Double yes. Although their are certain obvious differences between the brothers — I won't name names, but one of them wears his hair in Grimmsian golden tresses, whereas the other...doesn't — the Hemsworth brothers look pretty the same. V pretty.
Let's be honest: do we think Emma Watson used some of the black magic she learned on the very method set of Harry Potter to conjure up from the dark side a doppleganger brother so that she could win even more acclaim for her skills both on and off set? No. We don't. But Emma and her brother Alex sure look eerily similar.
Don't let the facial hair fool you: these Evans are definitely siblings. Now, one of them is in focus in this picture, the other is...not. But also, don't let that fool you. Because you don't have to be near-sighted to tell that they look very much alike. Genetics are a beautiful thing.
Zac Effron and his brother Dylan Effron are brothers, in the literal and figurative sense. Zac is the one that sings. Dylan is the brother of the one that sings. They were both blessed with good looks and a congenial love of sports. This is what binds them.
Vanessa and Stella Hudgens aren't just sisters that look alike: they're sisters that look alike and do stuff together. They go shopping, get their nails done together. And it looks like they really like to smile. Who that gawking woman in the background is throwing off the balance is both unknown and unnerving. Unless she's their mom, in which case: nice job.
This one takes the cake. The sibling cake at the lookalike contest. Cameron and Chimene Diaz look so alike, I can't even tell them apart. If you offered me a thousand dollars to tell you which was Cameron and which Chimene, I would just tell you to donate it to charity, because it would be a waste for me to even guess. But seriously, I'll take the challenge.
Which Duff sister looks more like Hilary? Hilary or Hayley? The question that can also be asked is, did their parents really think hard about differentiating the names all that much? Hayley and Hilary are pretty darn similar, and it doesn't help that the daughters look almost exactly alike. I mean, what happened to creativity towards fin-de-siecle 20th century? Right?
Rachel and Kayleen McAdams look so darn similar it makes me want to scream. But then the soothing colors and patterns of their shirts calm me down, and I think to myself, "It's okay that there are too such similar-looking siblings. It's not natural, but it's OKAY." And then I watch The Notebook.
Beyonce and Solange are not only sisters that look alike, they're also singers. But as singers they don't sound alike. Solange is a little grittier, a little darker, a little more daring, dare we say? That just goes to show you that whatever sequence of genes predisposing your face doesn't also program your voice.
John Meyer isn't the most well-loved of musicians out there. Who knows if his brother Carl, who looks strikingly similar to John, resents that the more famous musician mucked up his image for him. Either way, still not a fan of his music. John, that is. Carl, I don't know his music.
