Princess Di, Steve Jobs, Marilyn! 10 Celebrities Who Look Just Like The Stars They Played On Film

Have you seen the new promotional image of Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace in the upcoming Lifetime movie, House of Versace? The resemblance is uncanny! I actually had to do a double take as Gina looks EXACTLY like the iconic Italian designer.

Gina and the makeup team at Lifetime are of course not the only two who have managed to bring celebrities to life on both the big and small screen. We’ve also found other actors who have managed to pull off looking just like the famous characters they play on film. Some look so much like their characters, we’re having a hard time figuring out who is who!

Check out our fun photo gallery below, and let us know what you think!

    Those pursed lips! That hair! Yes, I too had to do a double take on both the real and fake Donatella Versace here as they both look so similar! Gina Gershon is set to play Donatella in the upcoming Lifetime movie, House of Versace. I wonder how she's going to pull off Donatella's thick Italian accent in the movie, too?

    While there have been a dozen or so actresses who have portrayed Marilyn Monroe on film, Michelle Williams was by far the best. The resemblance is just uncanny! Michelle played the iconic blonde in My Week With Marilyn in 2011.

    Lindsay Lohan took her stab at it (with critics taking their stab at her in return), and now British actress Helena Bonham Carter will try her hand at playing Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming BBC biopic, which will debut on British television screens in late December.

    Okay, so the movie was canned, but it was still fun to watch. Of course I'm talking about Lifetime's William and Kate, which debuted right before Prince William and Duchess Kate got married in April of 2011. By the way Lifetime, where's our sequel?

    While I was looking for pictures of Jennifer Lopez as Selena, I'll be honest with you that it was rather difficult, because these two women look so much alike! It's no wonder that the 1997 film Selena was the launching pad for Jennifer's career!
