Ronaldo and other football Stars with their look-alike actors

A look-alike is someone who looks almost exactly like another person. According to Wikipedia, a look-alike, double or dopple ganger is a person who bears a strong physical resemblance to another person, excluding cases like twins and other instances of family resemblance.

As we have look-alikes who have been notable solely for resembling well known individuals, such as the Nigerian musician Rema and his Ivorian fan girl, so do we have individuals who are notable in their own right, such as 'Harry Potter' star Rupert Grint and British singer Ed Sheeran who both share a strong physical resemblance.

Footballers, like every other humans also have their own look-alikes, varying from fellow football Stars to celebrities in other sectors of the entertainment industry, and so on.

Today's article will be focusing on football stars and their dopple gangers in the acting industry. In no particular order, below is the list.

Pirlo / Chuck Norris

From their hairstyle to their beard style, midfield maestro Pirlo looks so much like young Chuck Norris. The American actor is now in his 70s but still shares a strong facial resemblance with Andrey Pirlo.

Diego Milito / Sylvester Stallone

The facial resemblance between young Sylvester Stallone and former Inter Milan striker, Diego Milito is uncanny. Funny is the fact that they don't even share the same root, as the former is from North America while the latter is a South American.

Muller / Andrew Garfield

Amazing Spiderman actor, Andrew Garfield no doubt looks like Bayern Munich frontman, Thomas Muller.

With a little more darkened hair, or perhaps a little more blondened hair, one could pass off as the other.

Dybala / Tobey Maguire

Another Spiderman actor.

I am sure Dybala won't mind being compared to comic superhero character actor, Tobey Maguire.

With his athleticism and a little shore up on his acting skills (as footballers are known to be actors on the pitch anyway), perhaps Marvel Studio could award Dybala a future Spiderman role. That's a joke.

Benzema / Shia Lebeouf

The twin brothers from ... Wait, did I just type twin? Hollywood actor Shia Lebeouf and Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema could have been conjoined twins who were separated at birth.

We all know that is not true as Benzema is a French national of Algerian descent, while Shia Lebeouf was born in Los Angeles, California on June 11, 1986 which makes him a year older than Benzema.

Giroud / Errol Flynn

Even though these two men belong to different generations, their facial resemblance cannot go unnoticed.

Blaszcykowski / Sean Bean
