Celebrity doppelgangers from Joe Wicks to Margot Robbie as Stephen Fry says fans mistake him for Top Gear’s James May

YOU haven’t made it in showbiz until you have your own celebrity lookalike. 

Stephen Fry this week claimed when he’s abroad fans mistake him for the former cast of Top Gear because he’s an "overweight tall person with a big chin".

The 64-year-old said: “People in South Africa or Germany will often think that I'm James May because I do have rather stupid hair or Jeremy Clarkson."

From Joe Wicks being compared to Poldark hunk Aidan Turner to Margot Robbie being mistaken for Jamie Pressley, everyone in showbiz has an eerily familiar face.

Don't believe us?

Take a look at these famous 'twins'. 

Joe Wicks and Aidan Turner

Work out champ Joe Wicks has one thing in common with his famous lookalike – rock hard abs. 

The Body Coach, 36, says he's often mistaken for Poldark’s curly haired hunk Aidan Turner, 38. 

Joe said: "I met him a while ago at an event, he’s a good-looking bloke, and he’s got a better body than me.

"He’s a hunk with great abs.”

Ed Sheeran and Rupert Grint

Friends Ed Sheeran and Rupert Grint are confused because of their red hair

The ginger duo became friends after the Harry Potter actor, 33, starred in Ed’s video for Lego House.

Since then the actor says he’s often bombarded by fans of the 30-year-old musician. 

Rupert admitted Ed's fans approach him all the time. 

He told BBC Match of the Day magazine: "People think I'm Ed Sheeran.

“They compliment me on my music career, and I just play along with it!"

Isla Fisher and Amy Adams

Home and Away alum Isla, 45, says she is constantly mistaken for American Hustle actress Amy Adams, 47. 

But she says Adams's fans haven’t bothered her since the pandemic began. 

She told Australian TV show The Project: “I haven't had it for a while, but I think I've been inside my house in COVID for a year.

"We laugh about it because Amy has blue eyes and I've got brown, our husbands have laughed about it, too."

Louis Tomlinson and Matt Terry

One Direction heartthrob Louis, 30, has been likened to 2016 X Factor winner Matt Terry, 28. 

The singer, who has since appeared in the musical Madagascar, was compared to Louis by judges – and Ollie Murs by Simon Cowell. 

He said: "It was really ironic because everyone was talking about Louis, and Simon was like he’s like Ollie!"

Chris Martin and James Morrison

Coldplay’s Chris Martin and You Give Me Something singer James Morrison have been confused in the past.

James told the Daily Mail: “I get the Chris Martin thing all the time.

“I was walking through Victoria Station when a woman came up and asked me whether I was ‘that singer, the one out of Coldplay’.

“I had to tell her that I wasn't him. I didn't tell her that I was James Morrison, though.”

Keira Knightly and Keeley Hawes

Keira, 36, played 45-year-old Keeley’s husband Matthew MacFadden’s love interest in Pride and Prejudice. 

So it’s no surprise the actresses have been compared to each other in the looks department. 

While some think Keira looks like Black Swan actress Natalie Portman, others disagree. 

One fan tweeted: “I don't think Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley look alike, Keira Knightley and Keeley Hawes do.”

Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel

With naturally black hair and big eyes, Katy, 37, and Elf actress Zooey, 41, have long been confused for each other.

And singer Katy revealed last year that she took full advantage of their similarities when she was starting out. 

In an Instagram Live with Zooey, she confessed: “When I first got to L.A., I went to the club a lot. 

“And I wanted to get into the club and I had no money, I had no clout, I had nothing, and sometimes I would pose as you to get into the club.”

Jamie Pressly and Margot Robbie

The My Name is Earl star has a striking similarity to Aussie actress Margot Robbie, 31. 

The 44-year-old American shares the same wide smile and blonde hair as the Wolf of Wall Street star. 

But Jamie is keen for Margot’s fans to remember who was famous first.

When asked if she noticed how much she looked like Margot Robbie, she told photographers: "Right, right, well that would be she looks like me."

Jason Schwartzman and Luke Wilson

Wes Anderson stars Jason, 41, and Luke, 50, are often confused for the same person. 

The Rushmore co-stars share the same prominent nose and dark shaggy locks. 

Schwartzman even played Luke’s brother Owen Wilson’s brother in The Darjeeling Limited.

But Jason said he looks like lots of other people, on late night talk show Conan in 2013.

He said: “The people that do recognise me look exactly like me. 

It’s really weird. I will be walking down the street, I’ll look up ahead and 100 yards in front of me will be a person who looks just like me. 

"They look like me, but in better shape.”

Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has long been mistaken for Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood. 

But Daniel, 32, disagrees with the comparison with the 40-year-old American. 

He told Wired: “The idea of me and Elijah Wood is the same… we don’t actually look that alike. 

"But if you imagine all our component parts, we’re just short, pale, blue-eyed, big-eyed, brown-haired people."
