If you ever stumble across vintage photos of famous actors like Alec Baldwin or Bruce Willis, then chances are you're not really looking at pictures of those actors. Why, you might ask? Well, it turns out that there are quite a few famous people from history who looked exactly like popular stars today! For instance, did you know that former U.S. President Millard Fillmore and Alec Baldwin could pass for twins?
After someone pointed out the uncanny resemblance on reddit, fans' minds were immediately blown. "Millard Filmore is an urban legend. There was not a 'real' Millard Filmore. Everything we remember about him is from a piece of fiction starring Alec Baldwin. The movie was called The Easily Forgotten President," one user joked. "Now I can't unsee it," another wrote. We can't unsee it now, either!
And Alec's not the only celebrity who has a doppelganger from well before their time. Ellen DeGeneres, Tommy Lee Jones, and Keanu Reeves all have historical lookalikes, too. Check out the gallery to see shocking photos of stars who look just like historical figures.
