Celebrities then and now - Look-a-likes

Ever watch an old flick and think Hey! They remind me of *insert current celebrity*? It happens to me all the time. Unfortunately I can only remember 4 off the top of my head so here goes...

Bebe Daniels/Bebe Neuwirth

Oddly enough same first name, yet no relation. A friend pointed this one out to me and I have seen it ever since. They could be twins.

Ingrid Bergman/Debra Messing

I thought it since the 1st time I saw Casablanca about 5 years ago. To me they look like they could be family.

Ilona Massey/Kim Catrall

Not so much always as much as in this photo of Massey. Hello Samantha Jones!

Carmen Miranda/Sandra Bullock

If anyone were to play Carmen today, it would have to be Bullock. Not only does she physically remind me of Miranda, but I think he could opull off Miranda's high energy and cookiness -- without turning her into even more of an exaggeration of her character.

I know these are not the best comparision photos... give me a break... I just woke up! :-D


  1. actually, very clever there, Miss L. Someone should do a Carmen Miranda bio-pic, she was one interesting woman.

  2. Hmm, interesting, i can definitely see the resemblances which i have never noticed before!




  4. I think these are some very interesting choices. Great post. Have a wonderful weekend. Cheers!

  5. I really see the resemblance in the BeBe Daniels/BeBe Neuwirth

  6. Inky... I agree!! And Bullock should be the one to do it! Hahahaha

    Stefanie... Some are a bit tricky to see, especially if one has a bias, say they love bergman, but dislike Messing, then it will be hard to see the resemblance, but I think for the most part, these new celebs could play the past ones in a movie.

    Maria... Thank you! I am glad you enjoy my blog! Have a great week!

    Keith... Thanks so much! I am sure there are some that people think I am crazy for thinking they look alike, but damn it all if I don't think they could plpay them in a bio movie.

    Lesley Ann... The resemblance is so striking and the fact that the both had the same name... I looked around the internets to see if they were related at all. Nothing. They are not.

  7. I really like this post all pics are awesome
    but where are shoes?

  8. I am watching the original "42nd Street" with BeBe Daniels and thought: she looks familiar. I quickly knew - it was BeBe Neuwirth! The name "BeBe" can't be a coincidence. I wonder if anyone ever asked BeBe Neuwirth if she took the BeBe nick name to honor or otherwise acknowledge the resemblance? They look like mother/daughter or sisters. I Googled the likeness and just found this site. Amazing!

    1. Yes! I had to look them up too to see if there was any family relations! Apparently none at all!
