In Hollywood, celebrities tend to have a certain look. Enough of them look like others who are also in the industry, which can definitely be confusing for the general public. Some of them, when they are out and about, actually get mistaken for other celebrities. While we can understand why people might be confused about a few of them, there are many that we don’t think look alike at all. We have rounded up several celebrities who claim that they get mistaken for other celebrities – let us know if you think any of these men and women actually look alike.
7. Cate Blanchett for Kate Winslet
Cate Blanchett is a total star in her own right; however, she still gets mistaken for other celebrities. According to her, people often mistake her for Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet. “Well, Kate Winslet and I share the same agent,” the “Blue Jasmine” star said. “Often people will say ‘I recognize you, you were great in Titanic!’” She adds: “Look if I’m mistaken for Kate Winslet I’m happy.”
Winslet isn’t the only person that people have confused Blanchett with. At a social gathering several years ago, Prince Philip reportedly mistook her for a technician. He is rumored to have asked her how to fix his DVD player. As the story goes, she told him that she didn’t know how to fix it and that she was an actress. A Buckingham spokesperson responded to inquiries about the situation with, “We do not comment on private conversations. The Duke of Edinburgh meets so many people on engagements. These are often film stars.”
