Knightley has the same doe-eyed ingenue good looks she shares with Portman to thank for scoring her one of her earliest acting roles: that of a double for Queen Amidala (played by Portman) in 1999's Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace.

Not only is Fisher aware of her likeness to fellow redhead Adams, she's not above using it to her advantage. "If [Confessions of a Shopaholic"] is a hit, it was Isla Fisher in the movie," she joked prior to the release of the 2009 rom-com. "And if it doesn't work out, it was Amy Adams."

When Glee producers were looking to cast Michele's onscreen mom, they quickly landed on fellow Broadway veteran Menzel, who shares the starlet's dark hair and pouty lips.

Repeated run-ins with fans mistaking her for the comedian led Banks to make an appearance on Handler's late-night show and share an anecdote about their mistaken identity. "[A fan's] like 'I just love your books; My Horizontal Life,' and I was like, 'Oh, he thinks he's meeting Chelsea Handler,'" Banks said. "And I couldn't ruin it for him, you know. I was like 'yeah it's nice to meet you.'"

Their similar hairstyles and heart-shaped faces have confused fans as to who's who, something the Victorious star has discovered first-hand. "I get this every single day. Everyone always confuses me for her," Justice told MTV, but added there's no hard feelings about the mix-up. "It's such a compliment because I think she's so gorgeous and she's so sweet."

When Jewel first entered the music scene, her golden waves and country twang drew comparisons to the star of Jerry Maguire – but not always for the right reasons. "My feelings were so hurt by that story," she told Shape of being dubbed the "chubby Renée Zellweger" early in her career.
