17 Young Celebs People Think Are The Spitting Image Of An Older Celeb

·3 min read

Recently, I asked the BuzzFeed Community which Gen Z actors would be perfect to play the younger version of an older celeb. The answers were surprising but accurate.

Here are 17 Gen Z celebs people say look exactly like an older star:

1.Finn Wolfhard and Adam Driver.

"They look very similar to me, and I could see them as father and son in a movie."

2.Iain Armitage and Nicholas Hoult.

5.Gaten Matarazzo and Adam Devine.

"The first time I saw Gaten on Stranger Things, I googled if they were related. They have a really similar goofiness about them, but also their expressions and eyes are kind of uncanny."

6.Madeleine Arthur and Portia Doubleday.

9.Odeya Rush and Mila Kunis.

"I want Odeya Rush to play Mila Kunis's daughter or younger self sooo badly. Hollywood, make it happen, because I said so."

16.Millie Bobbie Brown and Elizabeth Perkins.

"She is clearly a young Elizabeth Perkins. Hands down, they must be related in real life.

17.And finally, Kiernan Shipka and Elizabeth Perkins.

"Oddly, while I agree that Millie bears a striking resemblance to Elizabeth as Elizabeth looks now, I feel Kiernan Shipka more closely resembles her in her younger days. They both have the same strong eyebrows."
