Celebrity doppelgangers are nothing new. Everyone knows that Zooey Deschanel is the hipster version of Katy Perry who is the pop tart version of Emily Blunt. But there is a whole different crop of doppelgangers: celebs who look like the young version of iconic actors. That’s to say, Brad Pitt looks a lot like Robert Redford when he was younger. Check out 15 stars who remind us of those who came before them.

We are dying at what an adorable little fancy man Katy Perry makes in drag. The singer stopped by Ellen today to celebrate Ellen DeGeneres‘ 55th birthday (did Ellen make some kind of deal with an evil wizard to look that good?), and to channel her inner dude in an amazing three-piece suit, toupee and mustache. We could honestly watch Katy dance her silly gentleman dance all day, but we had to take a break to round up the other female celebs from Lady Gaga to Gwyneth Paltrow to Amanda Bynes who look amazing in drag. And by “amazing,” we mean “like Daniel Radcliffe with a weird, sparse goatee.” Seriously, take a look.
We know, we know, it’s like every other headline on this site lately is about new moms — not our fault! It’s the news cycle! But we just wanted to take a moment to thank Drew Barrymore. After all the talk about how stars like Jessica Simpson and Beyonce shed the pounds after giving birth, we’re so relieved to see that Drew’s first magazine appearances are about things other than her diet. Last week she gave the requisite “miracle” quotes to People, and this week, she’s glowing from the cover of Allure, where the camera focuses on her flawless face and her quotes are all about how she’s grown up and settled down.
She talks about how “incestuous” it is that her friend Kristen Wiig is dating her ex, Fabrizio Moretti, and how Steven Spielberg scolded her when she posed for Playboy in 1995. “It’s embarrassing to go through any rebellious stage in front of people that you love and respect, and yet I’m glad I did,” she said. “I’m glad I lived such a full life before I settled down into a family, because I got to enjoy it and get it out of my system.” Read more…
Really Drew? The COOLEST moment of your life? Maybe the most incredible moment, the most inspiring, the most magical, the most life-changing…But the coolest? I’m not saying it can’t be cool to have a baby, but you, Drew Barrymore, have had a pretty cool life. Here’s where I tell you about how cool your life is:
As an 11 year old, Drew Barrymore was an “regular” at Studio 54. She smoked cigarettes AT 9, drank alcohol AT 11, smoked marijuana AT 12 and snorted cocaine at 13 YEARS OLD. Sure, that’s pretty messed up, but also pretty cool.
In 1990 Drew wrote an autobiography called Little Girl Lost. Even though it was about her troubled youth, it was still a book! She wrote a book. Cool!
Drew Barrymore may look like the most comfortable mother in the world on the cover of People this week, but she confesses that she didn’t feel like that when she first gave birth to baby Olive, her daughter with new husband Will Kopelman, in September. “I couldn’t eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous!” she told the magazine. “You have the highest highs and yet you’re facing the biggest fear of, ‘How do I keep someone alive?’ ”
We like those kind of refreshingly honest quotes, to balance the more typical ones she gave about new motherhood: “It’s like the biggest crush I’ve ever had in my life!” and “It just makes me so emotional because it’s like a miracle.”
And, of course, we’re thrilled to meet baby Olive, especially after learning last week on Ellen how she got her name. “I was three months pregnant and they said your baby is the size of an olive, and that was it. We never looked back.”
