They made it! 15 actors who look like the real people they portrayed

Good actors pretend to be other people. Great actors literally live lives of their characters.


That’s why when a movie gets made about a real historical figure, I always wonder: WHO will play him or her? In fact, some actors are just doppelgängers of their screen characters. While watching The Queen (2007), I caught myself thinking that Helen Mirren was born to play this role. Just like her, these 15 actors didn’t just play their roles – they became their characters. Do you believe us? Take a look at the pics below and share your impressions in the comments below!

Val Kilmer does not look like Jim Morrison and Michelle Williams is nowhere near Marilyn Monroe!

Jamie Foxx was perfect in the role as Ray Charles, portraying his distinct mannerisms and singing to playing the piano and musicianship. Meryl Streep was perfect as Margaret Thatcher, eventhough they occupy different ends of the political spectrum. Robert Downey, Jr., was indellible as Charlie Chaplin right down to the ballet dancing. An extraordinary performance that should have been honored by the Academy Award for best actor. Ben Kingsley embodied Gandhi and deservedly won the Academy Award. Daniel Day-Lewis inhabited the role of Abraham Lincoln and deserved to win the Academy Award. Helen Mirren was true to Queen Elizabeth II and deserved to win the Academy Award. Morgan Freeman gave the most extraordinary, memorable and poignant portrayal of Nelson Mandela and, in my opinion, he should have received the Academy Award for his performance. Michelle Williams surprised me with perfection in the role of Marilyn Monroe and she deserved to receive the Academy Award nomination for her performance. I was not impressed in any way by Eddie Redmayne's Academy Award-winning performance of Stephen Hawking or Val Kilmer's performance of Jim Morrison. And I haven't yet seen Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan, Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs, Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf, James Franco as James Dean and Anthony Hopkins as Pablo Picasso.

In the cases of Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep (at least) it's probably down to a good hair and make up department. I've seen both those women playing other roles where they don't resemble Elizabeth 11 or Margaret Thatcher in the slightest.
