29 Weird Historical Photos That Prove Today’s Celebrities Have Travelled In Time.

Celebrities are used to adoring fans copying and imitating them. The admirers may sport similar clothing items or a hairstyle, while others go to the extreme of going under the knife to look like their favorite, famous figure.

No plastic surgery though can match to a star having their own doppelgänger. There are photos on the internet of look-alike’s from the past that look very much like an eerie and uncanny vision of our current Hollywood A-listers. Doppelgänger comes from the German folklore of a paranormal look-alike.

When you look at the photos and compare them to the living person, one cannot help but have a visceral reaction. Perhaps it is the fact that in the past people did not smile in their photos or the similarities are so close, one begins to think these images must have been altered. Here is a compilation of the best and often scary doubles.
