Celebrities, by definition, have some of the most recognizable faces in the world. We see them everywhere: on our televisions, on movie screens, on the magazine posters on our walls, and all over our Instagram feeds. But what happens when those famous faces get confused with other popular stars? Some pretty crazy stories and unforgettable encounters.
If you're thinking, "how does that even happen?!" well, it actually happens a lot more than you would think: big celebs like Zendaya, Lucy Hale, Katy Perry, Rupert Grint, and many more of your faves have all shared stories recalling times that their fans, the media, or even professional co-workers like casting agents have confused them with other actors, singers, and mega stars.
Sometimes, these celebs were understandably mistaken for their total doppelgängers – like Victoria Justice and Nina Dobrev, who we're not totally convinced aren't really twins – but other times, the lookalike comparisons have been so waaaay off that we are over here shaking our heads over it.

Actor Rupert Grint has shared that he frequently gets mistaken for another celebrity redhead – singer Ed Sheeran. In fact, when he gets stopped by fans for photos, he's not sure who they think he is.
"If someone stops me I could go either way. I could be Ed or I could be me," Rupert said.
