Did How I Met Your Mother’s Doppelgänger Theory ever inspire you to look for your own lookalike? According to legends, there are about seven lookalikes for each person. But what are the chances that you will actually find them? Extremely slim! So if someone thinks they look exactly like the Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds, they are sure to announce it to the world. Regardless if someone believes it or not.
English actor Kate Beckinsale, known for films like Serendipity and the Underworld franchise, truly feels that Ryan Reynolds is her lookalike. So much so that she is afraid to be in the same room as him. Let us find out the actual story behind this.
Kate Beckinsale believes she looks like Ryan Reynolds
Back in 2019, as a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Underworld star expressed how she definitely looks “exactly like Ryan Reynolds.” After the laughter from the studio audience and the confused look on Fallo\n’s face, she explains further. “When sometimes I see a bus going by with a poster, and I think ‘Damn I look hot. Oh, wait. It’s not me,'” says Beckinsale.
The host, Jimmy Fallon, clearly doesn’t see the similarity even after looking at their photos side by side. Though dejected, Kate still insists on it despite Ryan being a “big Canadian man.” Nevertheless, Beckinsale still sees herself in The Adam Project star. When asked if she’s ever worked with him, she replies no, with a slight hint of fear. “I can’t be in the same room as him. One of us would, I think, explode, or something would happen.”
Although, by her own admission, some of Kate’s boyfriends have been in the same room as Ryan Reynolds without her. Apparently, as Kate hilariously narrated, her former beaus felt a special connection with the Red Notice star. They believed that “they sort of know things about his undercarriage that they shouldn’t. But they don’t…” Obviously, the story ended with an uproar from the studio audience.
Well, as Ted Mosby’s voiceover declared in How I Met Your Mother, “Ultimately, we only see what we want to see when we’re ready to see it.” Hopefully, the people of the world and Jimmy Fallon will soon acknowledge that Kate Beckinsale and Ryan Reynolds are, in fact, doppelgangers.
Do you see the resemblance? You can watch The Adam Project on Netflix to confirm and let us know in the comments.
