Are people ever surprised when you show them a picture of your sibling? Whether you look identical or don't even pass for relatives, people are still stunned to see what they look like. The same thing happens to celebrities all the time because not all of their siblings are famous. From Selena Gomez to Penelope Cruz, you will be astounded to see what these celebrity siblings look like. Some of them could be stand-ins while the others could pass for strangers, and you won't believe whose sibling could be their twin.
Gigi, Bella, And Anwar Hadid
Gigi and Bella Hadid are model sisters who have a younger brother named Anwar, if you didn't already know. Bella used to look more like Gigi as a baby before she dyed her hair dark brown and got a nose job. Although none of them look identical, you can tell they are related from their blue-grey eyes.
With three siblings, the oldest always looks like mom, the middle is a mix, and the youngest looks like dad. If you know their parents, you can see how accurate this is. They definitely look like siblings, but it is much harder to tell when they are not standing together.
Mary-Kate, Ashley, And Elizabeth Olsen
If you didn't know who these people were, wouldn't you assume that they are triplets? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are clearly identical twins, but their sister Elizabeth also looks almost exactly like them. Something must have been in the water at the Olsen house because they are all gorgeous.
Like her sisters, Elizabeth made a name for herself in the acting world when she played Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. She has since gone on to have roles in many other films and TV shows, and she is carrying on the Olsen legacy now that her sisters are no longer acting.
Nikki And Nathan Reed
Nikki Reed is best known for her roles in the Twilight saga and her beauty, but did you know her brother is just as attractive? While it is harder to see a brother and sister's resemblance, they definitely have the same face shape. Besides that, they don't exactly scream siblings or even related.
If we didn't know they were siblings, we might have assumed this was a picture of Nikki Reed and a new man in her life. Maybe with a wig and some makeup, they would look more related, but it's hard to tell from this.
Taylor And Austin Swift
Throw on a wig and a dress, and Austin Swift could probably pass for a Taylor Swift impersonator. You can see the resemblance the two share, but we wouldn't call them identical. Austin has walked the red carpet with his sister many times, and people know they are related, not dating.
Austin and Taylor are three years apart in age, but it is challenging to guess who is older. Austin looks like he is the older sibling with his mature beard, but Taylor is the big sister. Thanks to his sister's fame, he was able to get into acting a producing in the past couple of years.
Dakota Johnson And Stella Banderas
While most people don't know that Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson has a sibling, they will be surprised to find out that she is just as beautiful. The sisters are half-siblings and share Melanie Griffith as their mom, but they have very different looking fathers, which is why they don't really resemble each other.
They are both naturally dirty blonde but dye their hair lighter, which helps to remind people that they are related. They also share their mother's mouth shape, but that is where the resemblance ends. They would probably pass for friends rather than sisters if you saw them walking down the street.
Kate And Oliver Hudson
Although this might sound creepy, it looks like Kate Hudson is hugging a boyfriend rather than her brother Oliver. You might recognize Oliver from a plethora of movies and TV shows like Rules of Engagement, Scream Queens, and Grown Ups 2. He might be older, but she is the better-known Hudson.
They both followed in their mother's footsteps when it came to acting; however, Oliver got his father's looks. Although they have the same eye color, they don't really look much alike. If they weren't famous, this would be the perfect photo to submit to "Dating or Related" on Instagram.
Karlie And Kimberly Kloss
Karlie Kloss and her sister Kimberly might not look alike, but they sure look like they are ready to hit the catwalk. You would never know these two are sisters between the height difference and their facial features. They are equally beautiful but in much different ways.
While Karlie is a fashion model, her sister Kimberly works for Christian Louboutin. It must be nice to have a sister with the fashion hook-up, not that Karlie needs it. While some sisters look identical regardless of the age difference, these two look like they came from different parents.
Emma And Alex Watson
We all know and love Emma Watson from the Harry Potter films, but did anyone know she had a nearly identical brother? When she cut her hair into a pixie cut in 2010, she looked even more similar to her brother Alex. He is also an actor and model, and you might have seen him on set with Emma.
If you are a mega Harry Potter fan, you might remember a Hufflepuff background student that could have passed for Hermoine's brother, and that's because Alex played one of the extra students in the third movie. Over the years, he has matured, and they no longer look as similar, but you can see the resemblance.
Hailey And Alaia Baldwin
If Hailey Baldwin and her sister Alaia walked into a room, you would never know they are related. These two could not have more opposite looks between Hailey's light blonde hair and Alaia's dark aesthetic. Even in more recent pictures, Alaia is like a distant cousin rather than a sister.
They do share the same parents, but they have always had much different styles and looks. While Hailey is her dad's twin, Alaia looks much more like their mom. Like Hailey, Alaia is also a model, and she just became a mom in August. We wonder if her daughter will get any of the Baldwin genes.
Miley And Noah Cyrus
You probably remember spotting Noah Cyrus from the random appearances she made on Hannah Montana, but now she is all grown up, and there is no doubt that she is Miley Cyrus' sister. Although they are not identical, you can see the resemblance, and Noah has picked up some of Miley's mannerisms.
They both share a passion for singing and pushing the boundaries with fashion, but Noah has always felt like she is living in her sister's shadow no matter how talented she is in her own right. It must be hard to be compared to Miley Cyrus every day of your life since she became famous.
Zac And Dylan Efron
Zac Efron has been everyone's teen crush since he made his acting debut in High School Musical. With age, he only got better looking, and he is still a top celebrity crush. His brother Dylan is lesser-known because he stays behind the camera most of the time, and people are surprised to find out that these two are related.
Although Zac and Dylan aren't twins, they are equally handsome. They also have many things in common, like their love for nature and sports. Since Dylan is Zac's only sibling, they spend a lot of time together and collaborated on a few projects like Down to Earth with Zac Efron.
Zayn, Safaa, Doniya, And Waliyha Malik
If there is one thing to say about Zayn Malik and his three sisters, the family resemblance is strong here. His sisters all look alike, and Zayn is just the male version of them combined. While living in England, Zayn was very close to his sisters, but he now resides in America, and he is missing many milestones.
This month, Zayn's sister Waliyha got married, and Zayn couldn't attend due to the global pandemic, but that wasn't the only reason he wasn't there. Apparently, he disapproved of the marriage because her new husband is an ex-convict. He just wants the best for his little sister.
Kaley And Briana Cuoco
Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco and her sister Briana might share the same parents, but they could not look more different. While Kaley has light blonde hair, her sister has dark brown locks, which already makes them seem unrelated, but their faces are also pretty different.
People might think they are cousins rather than sisters, but that doesn't both Kaley and Briana. In certain pictures, you can see their similarities, but you really have to look for them. Instead of acting, Briana got into music early on and is part of the Bluebird Band.
Lucy And Maggie Hale
Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and her sister Maggie don't look anything alike. Lucy has dark brown hair and thick eyebrows, while her sister has blond hair and a more subtle look. Although they don't look like sisters, that hasn't affected their close relationship.
Lucy and Maggie showed off their strong sister bond when they got matching tattoos in their grandmother's handwriting. Most people would be surprised to find out they are related. It is always hard to tell that people are siblings when they have completely different hair colors.
Harry And Gemma Styles
If you aren't obsessed with Harry Styles, what do you care about in this world? If you didn't know, Harry Styles has an older sister named Gemma. These two share their adorable smile, dimples, and green eyes. However, they do not look that much alike.
Taylor And Makena Lautner
Although we haven't seen much of Taylor Lautner since the Twilight saga, he has been keeping pretty busy at home. Taylor's younger sister Makena got engaged, and as her best friend, he shared a post in celebration. However, if you didn't know they were related, you might think this is their engagement to each other.
At first glance, people probably thought Taylor Lautner was announcing his engagement to this beautiful woman, but it is actually his baby sister. Makena and Taylor don't share many resemblances, but they are very close and have been each other's cheerleaders throughout their lives.
Penelope And Monica Cruz
Although Penelope and her sister Monica Cruz were born three years apart, the actresses could easily pass for twins. They look so alike, and people mistake them for each other all the time. Unlike most siblings on this list who share a few of the same facial features, these two are pretty much identical.
Like her sister, Monica Cruz is also an actress, and she is a successful fashion designer. We don't know what is in their genes, but we want some because they are strikingly gorgeous. Monica has actually done some stand-in work for her sister because of their close resemblance.
Dakota And Elle Fanning
Dakota Fanning came on to the acting scene at an early age, and her younger sister Elle quickly followed in her footsteps. However, when Dakota decided to take a step back and focus on school, her sister took over the spotlight. While the sisters both have porcelain skin and blonde hair, they do not look that much alike.
As children, Elle and Dakota looked much more alike, and Elle played the younger version of her sister in the movie I am Sam. Today, Elle has grown into her own as a model and actress, and she is now taller than her older sister.
Chris And Scott Evans
When Marvel blessed us with Chris Evans as Captain America, we loved it because he is dreamy. As he became more famous, we found out Chris has a handsome brother who looks like a mixture of him and Matt Damon, and the fans were interested to learn more.
Although they aren't that similar, they share the family's ruggedly handsome jawline and broad shoulders. However, without a full beard, it is hard to see how Scott looks like Chris. Scott is also an actor, and he is known for his role on the soap opera One Life To Live.
Shawn And Aaron Ashmore
Would you believe us if we told you they are identical twins? Well, they are, which is why they look exactly alike. Most people know Aaron Ashmore from Smallville, while Shawn is popular from Conviction. The brothers are just one minute apart in age, and they only differ in their hairline.
Even if you haven't watched those shows, you have probably seen their faces before. The brothers used to play pranks on people by switching places when they were younger. Even if you look like your sibling, that is one of those things people can only pull off if they are identical.
Blake And Eric Lively
Blake Lively is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood; therefore, it isn't surprising that her brother is equally as good-looking. Eric and Blake look alike once you take away her makeup and his beard, but it's hard to picture.
Like his sister, Eric was also in the entertainment industry until 2014. He had many small roles, including a guest role as Stephanie Tanner's first boyfriend on Full House. We can totally see him as one of the Van Der Woodsen siblings on Gossip Girl next to his sister.
Scarlett And Hunter Johansson
Believe it or not, Scarlett Johansson has a twin brother...well fraternal twin brother. Hunter Johansson tried his luck at acting, but he wasn't at the same level as his twin sister. However, he has supported and walked the red carpet with her many times.
Although Scarlett and Hunter are technically twins, they do not look alike at all. They have different nose shapes, cheekbones, and he is naturally much taller than her. Some people have even mistaken them for a couple on the red carpet, which was probably awkward.
Darren And Chuck Criss
If you were a Glee fan back in the day, Darren Criss was the ultimate teenage dream. Between his musical talents, dance moves, and boyish charm, he was the total package. Sadly, his brother Chuck does not look like him, but they are handsome in their own ways.
Like Darren, Chuck also got some musical talents. He plays the guitar, and the two have collaborated for a few songs. Darren and Chuck are only a few years apart in age, so they have always been very close, even now that they are both married and have families.
Zoe And Cisely Saldana
Zoe Saldana made a name for herself in the industry in the late '90s, but her fame grew immensely when she took the part of Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy. She also joined forces with her sister Cisley (pictured here) and Mariel to create a production company.
While you can definitely tell them apart, the family resemblance is clear between Cisley and Zoe. They have the same eyes and smiles, which brings out their likeness. They are extremely close and love working together at their production company.
Jessica And Joshua Alba
While Jessica Alba has been labeled Hollywood's "girl next door," her brother must be the hunky neighbor everyone has a crush on. Their parents really know how to make flawless-looking children. Like his sister, Joshua Alba is also an actor and has worked with his sister many times.
Joshua is clearly the male version of Jessica because they look so much alike. From their eyes and smiles down to their eye color, there is no doubt that these two are siblings. They are very close because they work together so often, and it's fun to see them on-screen together
Michelle And Dedee Pfeiffer
From Scarface to Batman Returns, Michelle Pfeiffer has done it all, and you can instantly recognize her face. Unless you are a huge Michelle Pfeiffer fan, you might not know that she has a younger sister who is just as beautiful and successful. Would you have guessed that they are sisters?
Dedee Pfeiffer is also an actress and has had many small roles on TV and in films, but she has been out of the industry for ten years. However, she is often seen with Michelle on red carpets. Because they both have blondish hair, it's easier to guess that they are related.
Maggie And Jake Gyllenhaal
Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal are among the most well-known sibling duos in Hollywood, but they look nothing alike. Besides their shared last name, these two could pass for strangers if you didn't know them. They do share a passion for acting, and they are equally as successful in the industry.
Although they don't look related, Jake and Maggie are very close. They are always seen on the red carpet together, and Jake looks up to her because she is the older sister. He hopes to have a marriage as successful and loving as his sister's when he eventually does settle down.
Audrina And Casey Patridge
Audrina Patridge was one of the many faces to have become famous from The Hills. For anyone who doesn't know her, she is on the left, and her sister Casey is on the right. When Audrina had brown hair, these two could have been twins because they looked so much more alike.
Casey also made appearances on The Hills, Audrina's self-titled spin-off, and the reboot The Hills: New Beginnings. While Audrina is in the spotlight more often, Casey keeps things a little more private with her husband and children.
Jemima And Lola Kirke
Some people might recognize Jemima Kirke from her role as Jessa in Girls. She gained international attention for this role, but she isn't the only famous family member. Her look-alike sister Lola has also had success in film and TV but on a smaller scale.
The sisters have always been annoyed by people commenting on their looks. Although they are public figures, Lola and Jemima are progressive and want to change the way people think of beauty. All that aside, they are clearly sisters and share many things besides looks.
Nicholas And Rosanna Hoult
Nicolas Hoult is best known for his roles in Mad Max and X-Men: First Class; he also previously dated Jennifer Lawrence. While Nicolas is seen as this hunky actor, his sister Rosanna is also an actress. His sister also gets the family's good looks, and she is just as talented.
Although they share a love of acting, Rosanna hasn't been in a movie since 2018; it seems that she is focusing on other projects. Nicolas and Rosanna are very close and often attend events together.
Sienna And Savannah Miller
While one sister is on the red carpet, the other sister is designing gowns for people to wear. Sienna Miller is known for her roles in American Sniper and 21 Bridges, while her sister Savannah is a well-known fashion designer. The pair share a lot of similarities and the resemblance is visible.
The sisters take inspiration from each other in their work. Savannah has a fashion label called Twenty8Twelve, and Sienna's sense of style always inspires her. They also have two brothers, but they look the most similar in the family.
Justin, Jax, And Jazmyn Bieber
If you have ever been infected with Bieber fever, you have probably heard about Justin's two younger half-siblings Jazmyn and Jax. As he is significantly older than his younger siblings, he is very protective of them, but often shares selfies when visiting them at his dad's house.
Although they are half-siblings, you can see the Bieber genes in them. Jax and Justin attended a red carpet event together in matching white tuxedos and similar haircuts, which made them look identical. It was almost like a father and son situation.
Zendaya And Kaylee Stoermer Coleman
No one can deny that Zendaya is a fashion and movie icon. She exudes confidence, and that is probably something her younger sister looks up to. Zendaya has three sisters and two brothers, and Kaylee is the one that looks the most like her.
It must be fun to have a sister like Zendaya to ask for fashion advice or take things from her closet. They have attended many red carpets together because that's what sisters are for: love and support. Kaylee is not in the entertainment industry yet.
Shay And Sean Mitchell
Most people know Shay Mitchell for her roles in Pretty Little Liars and You, but did anyone know she has a brother? While the family resemblance isn't that strong, they both share a passion for hard-work and success. They are also very supportive of one another.
When Sean launched his own record label, Shay was the first to post about it on Instagram to get the word out. It's always nice to have your sibling's support for all those important ventures. He is probably an amazing uncle to Shay's newborn baby.
Selena Gomez And Gracie Teefey
At first glance, Selena Gomez's younger sister looks like a fan who got to walk the red carpet with the singer, but that is actually her much younger sister. Selena's mom got remarried after splitting from her first husband when Selena was still a child and recently had two daughters.
Gracie Teefey is from Selena's mom's second marriage, which is why they don't look that much alike. However, Selena is such an amazing big sister and even helped name Gracie. They never force her to be in the spotlight, but she was so excited to walk the red carpet with her big sister.
James And Ian Charles
"Hi sisters and brother!" James Charles is a famous makeup Youtuber who became even more well-known after a few scandals. He has one younger brother named Ian, who he transformed to look just like him. While James is more of a social media influencer, his brother prefers a more private life as a model.
When they wear the same makeup, James and Ian like fraternal twins. Everyone knows they are brothers, but they usually don't look as similar. Despite their close relationship and previous web series, they live on opposite ends of the country now and don't have as much time
Demi Lovato And Madison De La Garza
While both these famous faces probably look familiar, did you know they are related? Demi Lovato has a younger half-sister who starred on Desperate Housewives as a child. Madison De La Garza is no longer an actress, but she has grown up to look more like her older sister.
Throughout all of Demi's ups and downs with her addiction journey, Madison and their other siblings have all remained by her side and supported her throughout those challenging times. Today Madison is focusing on screenwriting and producing rather than acting.
Camilla And Sofia Cabello
Former Fifth Harmony member Camilla Cabello might be the famous one in the family, but don't discount her adorable younger sister Sofia. Although Sofia is much younger, you can see the resemblance. Like her sister, she also auditioned for The X Factor.
The sisters have been seen together at many award shows, and it will be interesting to see if Sofia also becomes a successful singer like Camilla. She is already on her way there, but she is still young. Two Cabello voices are stronger than one.
Jennette, Dustin, And Marcus McCurdy
Who else remembers Jennette McCurdy from iCarly and Sam & Cat? Well, she is all grown up now, and she shared a photo with her brothers recently who look just like her. Marcus and Jennette look the most alike, while Dustin shares other similarities.
Although her brothers are not in the entertainment industry, they are talented like Jennette. Marcus is a graphic designer who makes incredible artwork, and Dustin likes to keep his life offline. Although their sister is famous, it hasn't changed their lives much.
Joey And Hunter King
Joey King became a breakout star when she starred in Hulu's The Act and gave an amazing performance. Most recently she starred in The Kissing Booth on Netflix, and people often forget that she has a sister that is almost identical to her.
Although they are six years apart in age, they still look so similar to each other. Hunter is also an actress who has mainly done work on soap operas. However, when they appear on the red carpet, people have trouble telling them apart with their hair and makeup.
