35+ Hilarious Times People Thought They Met Celebrities

Published 11 months ago

There is no surprise that celebrities in real life often look somewhat different from the way they do on screen. Makeup, clothes, and lighting used on sets help to alter their looks, hence meeting a person that looks A LOT like someone you’ve seen on TV might be a little confusing. Is it really them or is it just a very close lookalike?

The people listed below didn’t even hesitate to snap a picture with a random stranger thinking they were famous. What if it really is the real Tom Cruise and you just missed an opportunity to snap a pic with a huge Hollywood superstar? That would be super disappointing… Maybe even more disappointing than realizing the person you took a selfie is not actually them.

Scroll down to check out the pictures of “celebrities” that people have met and see if you would get mistaken by their looks too.
