Sometimes they look similar. Sometimes they have similar names, or maybe they just have a lot in common career wise. We all mix up people every now and then.

This one can lead to really weird conversations.

Pat Robertson
Robert Pattinson

I always mix up the names of Chris Rock and Chris Tucker, but my mind definitely knows which one is which.

#5 Posted by Spoonman671 (4375 posts) -

There is no Ray Fiennes!

#6 Posted by L44 (510 posts) -

I used to get Bill Murray and Tom Hanks mixed up all the time.

#7 Posted by HolyHackZack (103 posts) -

Kevin Costner and Kurt Russel, when one doesn't accept a role the other usually does, just adding to the confusion.

#8 Posted by johncallahan (479 posts) -

Kurt Russel and Russel Crowe get mixed up in my mind a lot. So do Chris Tucker and Chris Rock.

@Rainbowkisses: I assumed you mixed up Wahlberg's and Damon's labels intentionally, but then I saw that you labeled Pat and Robert correctly so I'm not sure.

#12 Posted by Bleshoo (104 posts) -

Charlize Theron & Uma Therman.

I actually stole that image so I have no idea whether it's intentional or not.

Drew and Dexter

I think you did, but the fact that none of use are certain is evidence that the two are secret long-lost twins.

Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts and Jennifer Garner all look the same to me for some reason.

#18 Edited by PenguinDust (12414 posts) -

Chris Evans and Chris Pine. They're the same guy aren't they? I've never seen them together so I have my suspicions.

#19 Posted by Skyrider (289 posts) -

I grew up thinking that Richard Gere and David Duchovny were the same person.

#20 Posted by CaLe (3678 posts) -

Not by appearance, by name.

Hugh Jackman / Gene Hackman

While skimming through channels on TV and seeing commercials for generic crappy TV shows about rich pretty people that every station seems to have 4-5 of, I can never tell the ladies apart. They all look like the same anorexic, air head, blond, bimbos and they honestly all look the same to me.

When I was a kid I didn't understand how down syndrome works. Every time I watched something with an actor with the problem I always thought it was the same guy in every single role. I always felt mad when it was a girl with down syndrome because I thought the directors had just dressed the boy up like a girl and threw him on camera with the idea that no one could tell the difference anyway. I remember getting so mad thinking about how cruel they were.

Micheal Cera and Jesse Eisenberg

@crusader8463: That's funny in a kind of depressing way.

@Mystyr_E: At first I wondered why you posted six different pictures of Zooey Deschanel.

Dylan Mc..FUCK.

#26 Posted by ShaggE (5987 posts) -

Bill Pullman/Bill Paxton

Dwayne Wayans/Keenen Wayans/Damon Wayans/Shawn Wayans/Marlon Wayans

Chad Kroeger/Ramen noodles (leads to some weird meals, lemme tell ya)

I also, for some reason, always forget Rick Moranis' name. It's weird.

#27 Posted by MarkWahlberg (4497 posts) -

Not someone I mix up, but I can never remember what Sienna Miller's face looks like. Even when I'm looking at a picture, It just sort of melts into this indistinguishable Allface that could possibly be anyone.

The last two are kind of stretching it.

Maybe y'all have prosopagnosia.

#32 Posted by NapTimeSleeper (327 posts) -

For some reason I've mixed up Susan Sarandon and Sigourney Weaver a few times.

#33 Posted by TheFakePsychic (175 posts) -

I cannot keep Seth Green and Seth Rogen straight in my head. I have no idea why, but I always mix them up. I'm not even going to attempt to say what either have been in now.

I have found myself referring to Charlize Theron as Scarlett Johansson, for no good reason.

They're not even remotely similar! Sort your shit out, brain.

Same here. I think it's because they garnered a lot of their fame at the same time and were touted as the "hot, blonde actress." Now I just separate the two as Black Widow and that blonde woman in Prometheus.

Never heard of Siwan Morris, Mia Kirshner, or Katie Featherston... and I never understood why Emily Blunt gets linked up with Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry. She looks nothing like the other two.

It's only Zooey Decshanel and slutty Zooey Deschanel, or Katy Perry and hipster Katy Perry.

I guess in large I dont have a prob mixing people up. I was reading Samuel Jacksons Bio on IMDB and was suprised to read that he and Laurence Fishburne get mixed up all the time. Guess they have shared a number of stories where people come up Telling Sam they loved him in the Matrix, or Laurence that they loved him in Pulp Fiction. How the FUCK can you not know Samuel L fucking Jackson when your fucking sitting next to him.

"People shout at me "Hey, loved that The Matrix (1999), man!" Yeah - me too. I was actually on a plane last year and this guy sat down next to me. Finally he said something to me, and we started talking about _Pulp Fiction (1994)_. He couldn't remember the actor's name, so I tried to help and said "I think it might have been Samuel Jackson." He jumped in "No, no, it's the other guy, that Fishburne guy". We rode the whole flight having that coversation and then, right at the end, he looked hard at me and said, "You sure look familiar, you're sure you're not Laurence Fishburne?" I said "No, and I definitely am not in Pulp Fiction (1994) either'."

Im putting this in as its just a fucking awesome quote!

I was raised to be cautious. I went to work with my grandfather, who cleaned office buildings and furnaces, and there would be twenty-year-old guys callin' him Ed, and he called 'em Mister. My grandfather was this old guy, very dignified, but he never looked 'em in the eye. He'd look at me like, "Turn your head down! Don't look the white men in the eye 'cause they'll think you being uppity or arrogant." Now the name of my production company is Uppity

Lol, I was kinda WTF on that one too. I feel like you must be too young to have been around when they were big. And if you were too young you prob shouldnt know who Billy Crystal is anyway.

Never made that connection before. Interesting...

There's a whole slew of generically handsome, stubbled, short brown haired males from the last couple of decades I find impossible to keep straight. Bale, Norton, near-dead In Time protagonist, that guy in Predators, Fringe guy, American Horror Story dad. Statham and Law fit the archetype, but have accents and are balding/annoying respectively, so I can remember them. Kind of like video game protagonists. Art imitating life and all that.

God, no!

I'm old enough to remember when Billy Crystal was relevant. One word - Soap.

I'm the old guy in this conversation.

Benjamin Bratt and Lou Diamond Phillips.

Lol, well then I really dont get the mix up. Such different humor styles and personalities. Lol if you know he was in Soap you have to have a good understanding of him as well. Remember Billy Crystal is a nice guy. Bill Murray is kinda a dick.

You do know you're talking about the man who beat up Chevy Chase backstage at SNL. He's a hero.

I haven't seen enough Costner movies, but I'd get his name mixed up with Kevin Spacey's every time.

#48 Posted by Hunter5024 (5175 posts) -

Also sometimes I confuse myself with Brad Pitt, which has led to a couple of awkward situations.

#49 Edited by YetiAntics (1489 posts) -

I mix these up, not based on looks... and I seriously don't know why.

Danny Devito and Joe Pesci

EDIT: However, as a child, I thought that was Danny Devito in Roger Rabbit and not Bob Hoskins.

There's a lot of people that look very similar to Rachel McAdams
