10 pairs of domestic and Hollywood stars that are very similar
They say that every person on Earth has a double somewhere that looks like two drops of water.
Russian celebrities are no exception, and some of them have “twins” found not just anywhere, but in Hollywood.
- 10. Gennady Khazanov – Robert De Niro
- 9. Garik Bulldog Kharlamov – Matt Damon
- 8.Sati Casanova – Leticia Sabatella
- 7. Julia Kovalchuk – Sarah Jessica Parker
- 6. Ekaterina Vilkova – Amanda Seyfried
- 5. Valeria – Cynthia Nixon
- 4. Artem Tkachenko – Adrien Brody
- 3. Maria Sittel – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
- 2. Ekaterina Klimova – Kristen Wiig
- 1.Eugenia Brick – Jennifer Lopez
10. Gennady Khazanov – Robert De Niro
If you look at the photographs of young Khazanov and De Niro, you cannot call them doubles – they are too different.
Nevertheless, after 60 years, the traits of both celebrities began to change in such a way that one began to closely resemble the other. Gennady Khazanov is currently 73 years old, and De Niro is 75.
Despite the fact that professionally they went different ways – one became a well-known comedian in the CIS, and the second became an Oscar-winning actor, they still have one thing in common: both do not stop leading an active lifestyle with age. No one is going to retire: Khazanov continues to appear on TV and perform in the theater, being also involved in politics, and his Hollywood counterpart is still acting in films.
9. Garik Bulldog Kharlamov – Matt Damon
These two people in their youth were more similar than the previous pair, but still reached the maximum similarity as they grew older. Although aging is not quite the right word, since Kharlamov is only 38 years old, and Damon is 10 years older.
Damon is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood, and Garik is in Russia. Films with the participation of “Bulldog” are not of high quality, but this does not detract from his talent as a comedian: in this regard, he is definitely among the best on the domestic stage.
8. Sati Casanova – Leticia Sabatella
This pair of doubles is not as widely known as the others, because if Sati Casanova does not need to be introduced, then Leticia Sabatella is known only to fans of Brazilian TV shows.
She is 11 years older than Sati, but when looking at her photographs, this figure does not fit in my head and Leticia looks the same age as Casanova. In her youth, she was a sex symbol of Brazil, so soap operas with her participation could even interest men.
7. Julia Kovalchuk – Sarah Jessica Parker
Probably the most interesting pair on our list for at least a couple of reasons. Firstly, this is the age difference: Kovalchuk is 36 years old, and Sarah is 54. Secondly, Julia has always been and remains one of the most attractive singers in Russia, while Sarah Jessica Parker, although she achieved worldwide fame, was never considered a beauty.
Nevertheless, looking at their comparative photo, the similarities are immediately evident.
6. Ekaterina Vilkova – Amanda Seyfried
Ekaterina Vilkova and Amanda Seyfried are not only similar in appearance, they are also colleagues: both have become successful actresses. Of course, Vilkova is known only to the domestic audience, and Seyfried is recognized all over the world, but these are details.
In addition, they are almost the same age: Amanda is a year younger than Vilkova, so none of them will age faster. This means that they are likely to remain doubles for the rest of their lives.
5. Valeria – Cynthia Nixon
And again, almost the same age, only this time the Hollywood “twin” is 2 years older than the Russian singer. It should be noted that they are united by one more, rather sad circumstance: the peak of fame of both has already passed.
Yes, Valeria is still known, as are her songs, and Cynthia is still remembered by millions of Sex and the City fans, but in recent years none of them has done anything significant for their career.
4. Artem Tkachenko – Adrien Brody
Adrien Brody is 9 years older than his Russian colleague in acting, but this difference is unlikely to be striking for anyone. Thanks to his talent, which brought him an Oscar, Golden Globe and many other awards, he became the idol of millions.
It is quite possible that Artem Tkachenko himself admires his “twin”. Although he has not yet conquered the world public, but in Russian cinema he is a noticeable figure: he starred in “Gogol” and several other TV series, including “Alien Blood” “Sparta”.
3. Maria Sittel – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
If we do not take into account the undoubted external similarity of these women, then otherwise they have nothing in common.
Maria is a well-known TV presenter who now hosts the Vesti news program on the Rossiya TV channel, and before that – Minority Opinion on Radio Russia and the Special Correspondent on the Rossiya TV channel. In 2005 she won the TEFI prize in the nomination “News program presenter”.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is her complete opposite professionally. She gained popularity in 1994 when she won the Miss World competition. This victory opened the doors for her to the world of Indian cinema, into which she confidently entered, becoming a real star not only in Bollywood, but also beyond.
So, she became the first Indian woman, whose wax figure appeared in Madame Tussauds, and was also a jury member of the Cannes Film Festival. If she had not at one time refused the role in the film “Troy” with Brad Pitt, she would have had every chance of conquering Hollywood as well.
2. Ekaterina Klimova – Kristen Wiig
The star of the dilogy “We are from the future” and “We are from the future 2” Ekaterina Klimova is 4 years younger than Kristen Wiig, and this is a unique case when the difference can be seen with the naked eye. Wiig is certainly an attractive woman, but our Katya is still prettier.
As for professional achievements, Kristen is mostly known as a comedian and screenwriter, and her acting work has rarely been successful. That there is only a remake of “Ghostbusters” with women in the lead roles, which failed miserably.
1. Eugene Brick – Jennifer Lopez
Evgenia Brik, although she is not a star of Russian cinema and television, nevertheless gained some popularity by her 37 years. So, she was nominated for several awards (including the Nika award) for her role in the TV series Hipsters, and for her work in the TV movie “Moscow Region Elegy” she received the award of the IV Festival of Television Cinema “Spolokhi” in the category “Best Debut”.
Jennifer Lopez went much further than her “twin”, building a successful career not only in cinema, but also in music. Multi-million album circulation, awards and sex symbol titles are just the tip of the iceberg.
Considering that Eugenia is 12 years younger than Jennifer, we can wish her to catch up with her double in terms of achievements and popularity in the near future.
