Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters  this weekend, and we couldn’t be more excited to see one of our favorite franchises get the larger-than-life reboot it deserves. Seeing Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello reunite has us thinking about their celebrity doppelgangers. In other words, stars that look like turtles. Duh.

No really  bare with us, guys. There are plenty of celebrities who resemble our favorite shelled reptiles. From particularly angled faces to short-and-stubby cuteness, or round, round heads, turtle-celebs are everywhere. You’ve just got to look close enough (and think a little bit outside the box). For instance, during all those Gossip Girl episodes, did you catch that hottie Ed Westwick looks like a tortoise? Take a minute to appreciate his (beautiful) bone structure and you’ll soon be singing a different tune. What about Joaquin Phoenix? His nose just screams, “Help me! My shell flipped over and I can’t move!” And Danny DeVito? Pfft! Total turtle.

Take a slow-moving walk through the gallery and let us know what you think in the comments below. Are you going to see TMNT this weekend?
