There is a theory in the strange and fascinating world of psychology that, when we choose our partners, we tend to scope out people who look similar to us in appearance.

If we like ourselves and believe that we are attractive, we subconsciously seek the same kind of characteristics and qualities within other people. This theory is  restricted to choosing potential mates, though the same can often be said for friendships.

When we choose friends we often seek out warm faces in the crowd– faces that look nice, genuinely kind, and are perhaps not all that different from our own. If you were to take a look at some of your friends, you may be surprised to discover that some of them look pretty similar to you.

The same can be said for many Hollywood celebrities, who also look similar to their best friends. In fact, some look so similar that fans occasionally confuse them as siblings.

With that said, here are the 15 Celebrity Besties Who Look Exactly Like Twins.

15. Aubrey Plaza & Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aubrey Plaza met each other on the set of Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Winstead played Ramona, the romantic interest of Scott (Michael Cera), who tries to court her by battling and defeating her seven evil exes.

Meanwhile, Plaza played an ex of Scott’s friend Stephen Stills. The two hit it off and have since hung out together. Winstead even attended the official worldwide FX premiere of Plaza’s new show, Legion, just to show Plaza support.

The two have often been seen in public with one another and even did an interview discussion together for BUST Magazine back in 2012. To top things off, the two look incredibly similar to one another and are occasionally mistaken for twins.

14. Selena Gomez & Francia Raisa

Francia Raisa is best recognized for her five year stint as Adrian Lee on the ABC Family drama Secret Life of the American Teenager. Selena Gomez is recognized for, well, being Selena Gomez.

Starting with various childhood television appearances, Gomez has gone on to appear in bigger films, such as Spring Breakers and Monte Carlo, and has landed a successful musical carear.

Gomez and Raisa have been friends since they met at a celebrity get-together at a Children’s Hospital sponsored by ABC Family and Disney ten years ago.

Later, after Gomez found out that she needed a kidney following her lupus diagnosis, Raisa was kind enough to offer hers to her best friend. The operation was a success and the two have been rocking her surgical scars proudly.

13. Jennifer Lawrence & Amy Schumer

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer were introduced when Jennifer Lawrence name dropped Schumer on TV. Before Schumer had a chance to freak out about it, Lawrence contacted her via email.

Their emails turned into text messages, which transpired into an all girls boat trip. They quickly realized that they had far more in common than just similar faces. This makes sense since both of their personalities have been noted to be somewhat eccentric and they are both either loved or hated by fans.

While people find the two entertaining, charming, and relatable, others believe that their personalities are obnoxious and unappealing. Love them or hate them, their bond remains strong and sacred.

12. Poppy Delevingne & Sienna Miller

As the older sister of Cara Delevingne, Poppy Delevingne comes from quite the talented and privileged family. Her father is property developer Charles Delevingne, which means that Poppy spent much of her life living in luxury, although she eventually got an apartment in New York with her best friend Sienna Miller.

Though she may not be as well known as her sister, Delevinge appeared in Kingsman 2 and King Arthur and has done some modeling work.

Miller is best known for her affair with Jude Law, which dominated the tabloids of the mid-2000s, though she has plenty of her own accomplishments. For example, she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance as Tippi Hedren opposite Toby Jones’ Alfred Hitchcock in The Girl.

Both Miller and Delevingne are close friends and look incredibly alike.

11. Minka Kelly & Leighton Meester

Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester famously appeared together onscreen in the 2011 psychological thriller The Roommate, but the two had started their longstanding friendship long before the movie even went into production.

The two met while filming separate commercials for Clearasil’s skin care products. Both Kelly and Meester happened to cross paths and have stayed close since then.

For the most part, their careers have remained distant but similar. While they never appeared together onscreen until The Roommate, both actresses got their big break on television shows. Meester was on Gossip Girl, while Kelly had a role on Friday Night Lights.

10. Chace Crawford/Ed Westwick

On Gossip Girl, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick had quite the bromance. After all of their time spent together on set, it was only a matter of time that the actors would go on to form a bromance of their own.

While promoting his then-brand new ABC show Wicked City, Ed Westwick revealed that he would like to have a Gossip Girl reunion with Crawford, who also had a brand new show to promote on ABC.

In recent years, Crawford has been keeping himself busy with television shows like Blood & Oil and Casual, as well as a plethora of movies that are already in production. Ed Westwick, on the other hand, has seen better days.

Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift have been linked together publicly as the best of friends for a long time. In fact, their close friendship dates back to 2012. During an interview, Swift stated that she was a big fan of Kloss’ work and that she really wanted to bake cookies with her.

Kloss then tweeted Swift asking who’s kitchen should they do it in. Sadly, the two didn’t get a chance to bake cookies together, but a year later in December Swift appeared at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as a musical guest.

Kloss happened to be modeling at the event and she took the opportunity to talk the singer in person for the first time. The two instantly clicked and have been glued to one another ever since.

Michelle Williams played Jen Lindley on the hit WB teen drama Dawson’s Creek from 1998 to 2003. In 2001, Busy Philipps was brought on-board for a recurring role as Audrey Liddel. Philipps and Williams met on set, hit it off instantly, and became closer and closer as the years progressed.

In 2005, when Willaims gave birth to her and Heath Ledger’s daughter, she named Busy Philipps one of the godparents (alongside Jake Gyllenhaal). A year later, tragedy struck when Ledger died and Philipps became Williams’s closest friend, consoling and living with Williams and her family during the painful time.

Anastasia Karanikolaou is well known for being a close friend of Kylie Jenner with over 2 million Instagram followers attached to her name thanks to some appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Two of the most prolific persons in the EDM electronica scene also happen to be the best of pals. Zedd previously spent eight years in a deathcore band called Dioramic until he decided to pursue a solo career for himself in 2010.

The solo jump led to staggering results after Zedd signed with Interscope Records, where he worked alongside notable acts like Foxes and Linkin Park. He won his own Grammy Award.

Martin Garrix caught his big break in 2012 when he signed with Spinnin Records and released his hit “Animals”. Since then, several polls (including DJ Mag) have named Garrix the best DJ in the world.

It was only a matter of time before these two phenomenal DJs crossed paths, and when they did, the creative chemistry sparked and they instantly became friends. Their friendship goes as far back as 2014.

This may be a little known fact to those outside of Hollywood circles, but Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts have been the best of friends for a long time.

The two became well acquainted in 1991 while on the set of Flirting. The two already knew each other beforehand, but it was on the set where their “friendship was forged,” according to Watts.

Both Kidman and Watts have been best friends ever since then, often accompanying one another to red carpet events and spending loads of time together. They have been through a lot together and even have children around the same age.

Not only do the two respect each other tremendously as actresses, but they have a friendship that is as strong as a sisterhood.

In terms of friendship, Gigi Hadid has always been closely linked to Kendall Jenner, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t also have an existing friendship with Kendall’s sister Kylie Jenner.

Surprisingly, both Hadid and Kylie look extremely similar, more so than Hadid and Kendall. Their close relationship started when Kendall and Hadid’s sister, Bella Hadid, met each other online seven years ago through Twitter and became instant internet friends.

The then-pre-teens met up in person at a sushi place in the area and clicked right away. Eventually, Bella introduced Kendall to her sister Gigi. From there, it was not long before Kendall decided to introduce her own sister. The four have maintained close friendships ever since.
