Finding your doppleganger

Finding your doppleganger | lizniland.com

Have you ever wanted to be a twin? Like a switch-places-and-no-one-will-know identical twin? Like a play-the-same-role-in-a-tv-show twin?

Well, even if biology didn’t allow it from birth, having your doppleganger could now be within your reach. The power of the interwebs is driving a group of friends ever closer to twindom. Twin Strangers has made headlines this week when a competitor met up with one of her twin-but-nots. Check it out:

According to the Twin Strangers website, there are 7 people in the world who look like you. Seven! Imagine! Who wants to just be a twin when you could be a septuplet?

For more doppleganger photos, there’s the I’m Not A Lookalike project and this fun Buzzfeed list. Of course there’s a Buzzfeed list.

Have you got a lookalike? Or have you been mistaken for someone random, a la the infamous case of Homer Simpson and Mr Sparkle?

I don’t think I’ve seen any of my 7 dopplegangers but my friend’s mum (hi Jules!) is convinced I’m a dead ringer for Hilary Swank. She’s not the only one to say that either. I’ve also been told I resemble Jennifer Garner, Keira Knightley and Julia Stiles. Does everyone get told they look like random celebs or is it just me?

I totally met a Julia Roberts lookalike the other night though.
