They say we all have a doppelganger somewhere in the world, but what about in a previous life? Check out these celebrities and their uncanny look-alikes from beyond the grave….
1. Robbie Williams and child killer Jessie Pomeroy
19th Century child killer and Robbie Williams look-alike Jesse Pomeroy was certainly no Angel. He was aged just 14-years-old when he was sentenced to hang for the brutal murder of a 10-year-old girl and the grisly mutilation of a 4-year-old boy. He cheated the gallows, dying in prison aged 72, sadly with No Regrets.
2. Nicolas Cage and unknown 19th Century gentleman
Not much is known about the look-alike in this American Civil War era photograph dated 1870, other than that he was from Tennessee and the fact he’s the spitting image of Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage! Now that’s what we call a Face Off!
3. Dennis Waterman and Queen Mary I
We hope Dennis Waterman doesn’t Minder us saying this, but he’s a real dead ringer for Queen Mary I – otherwise known as ‘Bloody Mary’ for her love of executing her opponents. She should be so good to you – not!
4. Ellen DeGeneres and poet Henry David Thoreau
With those big baby blues, legendary 19th Century American author and poet Henry David Thoreau could be comedian and chat show host Ellen DeGeneres’ much, much older brother!
5. Eminem and Emperor Alexander Severus
This stoney faced chap Alexander Severus was a Roman Emperor from the third century. Both Alexander and Eminem have had their shady moments, with the emperor being assassinated aged 27 and Eminem courting controversy throughout his career. Maybe ‘Eminemperor’ might have been a better name?
6. Jack Black and American folk hero Paul Revere
One is Paul Revere, a chubby folk hero of the American Revolution from the 18th Century, the other is Jack Black, a chubby comedy actor and voice of Kung Fu Panda. But frankly we’re having trouble telling these look-alikes apart!
7. Justin Timberlake and unknown 19th Century criminal
Check out this old mug shot of a criminal taken back in the 1870’s. With his spitting-image-of-Justin-Timberlake good looks, we wonder what he was charged with. Bringing sexy back maybe?
8. John Travolta and unknown Victorian Century gentleman
We’ve got chills that are definitely multiplying when we look at this picture of a mysterious Canadian man dated 1860. Either John Travolta has lived before or that’s one spooky look-alike!
9. Bruce Willis and World War II hero Douglas MacArthur
Well yippie ki-yay, does American World War II hero Douglas MacArthur look just like everyone’s favourite action hero Bruce Willis or is our Sixth Sense playing up?
