6 Pairs Of Black Celeb Lookalikes Who Have Been Mistaken For Each Other

It’s safe to say that many people have heard “I saw someone who looked just like you” at one point or another. However, when it comes to celebs, being mistaken for someone else can be an all-too-common phenomenon.

Here are X Black celebrities who are believed to look alike.

Mario & Chris Rock

First up, we have R&B singer Mario and comedian Chris Rock, who many “older white people” think bear a striking resemblance to each other.

In fact, during a sit-down with VladTV, Mario dished on how often people mistake him for Chris.

“When I travel, at least two people [make the mistake]. Especially if they’re the older–it’s the older white people, like, always.”

Mario humorously went on to share that, upon actually meeting Chris, he jokingly asked the comedian if he could have possibly been his biological father.

Ari Lennox & Letitia Wright

Ari Lennox is another soulful artist who resembles a fellow star: Black Panther actress Letitia Wright.

In fact, people went as far as to unofficially dub Letitia the “evil Ari” on Twitter.

This had a lasting impact on Marvel fans.

Freddie Gibbs & Don Cheadle

Freddie Gibbs and Don Cheadle are an additional musician/actor duo who people think look alike.

Recently, a Twitter user uploaded a photo of Don Cheadle to wish Freddie Gibbs a happy birthday. Freddie took it in good spirits, though.

A reporter also jokingly confused the two earlier this year.

GloRilla & Lil Mama

Thanks to a set of viral posts, similarities between Lil Mama and GloRilla—as well as Bow Wow and Wendy Raquel Robinson—were put on blast.

While the recent posts draw comparisons between four different celebrities, the GloRilla and Lil Mama similarities seem to have stuck the most.

CeeLo Green & E-40

Musicians CeeLo Green and E-40 are two others who have been confused for each other.

A Twitter user recently ran into CeeLo Green, though she wound up tagging E-40 in the post.

Once she realized her mistake, she jokingly corrected herself by referring to CeeLo as “Charles Barkley.”

“Okay f**k y’all, you’re dumb as f**k if you guys thought I didn’t know this was Charles Barkley.”

Regina Hall & Regina King

Finally, we have Regina Hall and Regina King.

On top of sharing a given name, these celebs have to share the experience of commonly being misidentified.

However, Regina Hall hilariously shared that there are some “perks” to the mix ups during a past speech at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, People reports.

“People get us confused and I get all the perks. Seriously, they’re like, ‘Here’s a gift certificate for Regina King, for $5,000 for Barney’s,’ and I’m just like, ‘I’m her!'”
