TODAY logo TODAY 4 days ago Erin Clements

We already knew Kaia Gerber looked just like her model mom, Cindy Crawford, but when we spotted the 15-year-old in People's 2017 World's Most Beautiful issue, we were reminded of another brunette beauty: Rachel Bilson!

However, Bilson and Gerber are far from the only famous pairs we have trouble distinguishing from each other. Here are 15 other celebrity-doppelganger duos that make us do double takes.

The "Modern Family" actress told InStyle that she met Kunis at a party in 2010. "She came up to me and said she gets called me all the time too," Hyland said. "She said that sometimes she pretends she's me because it makes her feel young. I asked if I could pretend to be her next time somebody asks me if I'm her, and she said OK."

Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry

In 2012, the "New Girl" star told David Letterman that her friends would mistake the "Firework" singer for her even before Perry was famous. "Friends of mine would call me up and say, 'You know, I saw you at that restaurant last night. I waved to you. You just blinked and looked at me like I'm a stranger,'" Deschanel said. "It turned out that it was all just Katy Perry."

Stephen Colbert and Bob Saget

In 2014, Knightley told Graham Norton she's often confused for Portman and, as a result, is frequently "chased through airports." She added, "I feel quite sorry for her, because she must get chased a lot because it's happened like five times where someone's been like, 'Natalie! Natalie! Natalie!' And I'll sign and take a picture as Natalie." Knightley even played Portman's double in "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace."

Lily Collins and Jennifer Connelly
