SARAH HYLAND AND MILA KUNIS

The resemblance between “Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland and “That 70s Show” actress Mila Kunis is nothing short of impressive. Hyland has even confessed that she gets called “Mila” by fans frequently.

According to Hyland, Kunis faces the same problem. The “Black Swan” star once told Hyland that she usually pretends to be her as it makes her feel younger (Kunis is about eight years older than Hyland).

MEGAN FOX AND ANGELINA JOLIE

While several people think that Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie look very similar to each other, Fox is not really a fan of that comparison. In 2009, she admitted to being “flattered” about it but also said that it was a “lack of creativity on the media’s part.”

According to Fox, the only things she and Jolie have in common is their dark hair, tattoos, and the fact that they both appeared in action movies. However, Jon Voight, Jolie’s dad, said that he could see the comparison.

“New Girl” star Zooey Deschanel has been mistaken for Katy Perry even before the latter was famous. According to the actress, even her friends would call her to say they’d seen her at a restaurant, but they were actually seeing Perry.
