Celebrity (non) look-alikes

So I was reading an article on boston.com and I saw this photo on the sidebar, with the caption "Could you confuse this reader for Angelina Jolie?"



Well, I think Helen Keller could look at those photos and tell it was two different people, but I had to click through and see what else was on tap. And so I was treated to 37 side-by-side pictures of people who look nothing alike. And now, for your amusement, I pass along the link:

I'd never recognize anyone famous. They are always much shorter than I expect.

Most of those people look nothing like who they are claiming to look like. Some of them are kinda close, but most are not. Does anyone here look like anyone famous?

Believe it or not, this is NOT the original "We are the World" video, either:

One of the managers at my job is a dead ringer for Vince Vaughn.

I can see the resemblance of the girl in the first picture to a much younger Angelina Jolie.

I can see the resemblance, so at least it's not like that other site where it seems like the users were comparing themselves to celebrities they thought they looked like.

The Marisa Tomei girl is a dead ringer.
