There are two ways of approaching the fact that you look a lot like a celebrity. One is to ruthlessly break it to people that, unfortunately, they are mistaken, you aren't Tom Cruise or Jake Gyllenhaal, and that they shouldn't look for their phone so they could snap a pic with you. That's the disappointment approach. The other way of dealing with it is embracing your looks and just going along with the person that walks up to you with an enamored expression on their face and starts spilling compliments about your work. That's the one that's a little more fun.

The people listed below (some of them - actual celebrities) went for the latter and that way made the day of many people, who thought they met their heroes. Scroll down below to see whether you would be confused by these lookalikes as well!

Isn't that the place that you can tell them you're famous and they'll give you free food? I've heard friends of mine do that...

A Homeless Man Convinced Me He Was George RR Martin

I figured it out like a week later when he was still there with his 'agent' and his trolley. i had to walk past him everyday for a couple weeks and i avoided eye contact with him because it was too embarrassing on my part.
