It’s never hard to find celebrity athletes at the Olympics. Some of them are already famous when they arrive the Games, and others become famous for what they accomplish there. But there’s never any shortage of people who would make you turn your head if you saw them walking down the street.

Of course, in addition to the Olympians who actually are celebrities, you’ll also always find a handful of them who look like celebrities. And that’s who we’re going to take a look at today—the athletes at the 2014 Winter Olympics who have celebrity doppelgangers.

So please, take a look and tell us what you think—though I’m sure you’ll agree with every single one and won’t have anything negative to say whatsoever. This is the internet, after all.

 

20. Julia Mancuso & Gina Gershon

So you might not mistake American alpine skier Julia Mancuso for Gina Gershon. But if you didn’t know who they were and they told you they were sisters, you’d totally believe them.

 

19. Elena Ilinykh & Eva Longoria

Russian figure skater Elena Ilinykh is a bit of a chameleon, but here I think she’s a pretty good match for Eva Longoria.

 

18. Shaun White & Eddie Redmayne

Shaun White may have failed in his attempt to win a third straight gold in snowboard halfpipe in Sochi, but he is one of the only athletes on this list who’s actually more famous than his celebrity doppelganger. So that’s nice.

 

17. Sarah Hendrickson & Tatiana Maslany

In case you don’t know who’s who…

Sara Hendrickson (left) is the American ski jumper, while Tatiana Malsany (right) is the Canadian actress who received a surprise Golden Globe nomination this year for the science fiction show Orphan Black. And yes, they are identical, so shut up.

 

16. Gracie Gold & Rosamund Pike

Despite a 17 year age difference, there’s still a pretty decent resemblance between Gold and this former Bond Girl.

 

15. Torah Bright & Savannah Guthrie

Ann Curry could never quite figure out why she had an intense dislike for Australian snowboarder Torah Bright. But now she knows.

 

14. Ashley Wagner & Meg Ryan

U.S. figure skater Ashley Wagner looks more like the old Meg Ryan than the new Meg Ryan does. 

 

13. Roberto Luongo & Sacha Baron Cohen

Some people say Candian netminder Roberto Luongo looks like John Turturro, but I always thought he was a dead ringer for Sacha Baron Cohen.

 

12. Keri Herman & Carly Rae Jepsen

Obviously U.S. freestyle skier Keri Herman walked into the salon and said “give me the Carly Rae.”

Now please insert your own “Call Me Maybe” pun here.

 

11. Jason Brown & Joseph Gordon-Levitt

American figure skater Jason Brown looks more like young JGL than the JGL we all know today. However, there’s definitely still a resemblance.

 

10. Charlie White & Evan Peters

This one is almost creepy, isn’t it? Charlie, on the left, is a two-time World Champion and the 2010 silver medalist in pairs figure skating. Evan, on the right, is probably best-known for starring in American Horror Story on FX.

 

9. Tatiana Volosozhar & Angela Kinsey

In the USA more people would probably recognize the woman on the left as Angela from The Office. In Russia, however, Tatiana Volosozhar is already one of the biggest starts of the 2014 Winter Games, having won gold in both the team figure skating event and the pairs event.

 

8. Nate Holland & Simon Pegg

Crop snowboarder Nate Hollands ginger locks and he’d be a pretty good stunt double for Simon Pegg in the next Star Trek movie.

 

7. Sidney Crosby & Andy Samberg

One writes songs about d*cks in boxes, the other wins gold medals and Stanley Cups, and neither can grow a beard. They’re practically the same person!

 

6. Jessie Diggins & Kate Bosworth

American cross-country skier didn’t win a medal in Sochi, but getting compared to Kate Bosworth is nothing to sneeze at.

 

5. Lolo Jones & Rashida Jones

We said Lolo looked like Rashida during the 2012 Summer Olympics, and not much has changed.

 

4. Tessa Virtue & Kate Middleton

I always Canadian ice dancer Tessa Virtue looked a little like Marion Cotillard, and from certain angle I still do. However, I also can’t deny that from certain angle she also looks a lot like Kate Princess Middleton of Yorkshire Pudding, or whatever her official title is.

 

3. Phil Kessel & Spencer Pratt

As much as it pains me to call Spender Pratt a celebrity, I cannot omit this pair. They look like identical twin hobbits.

 

2. Silje Norendal & Kate Upton

Kate Upton may be a bit more voluptuous than this gorgeous Norwegian snowboarder, but then Kate Upton is a bit more voluptuous than everybody.

 

1. Alex Ovechkin & Richard Kiel

What can I say? I saved my personal favorite for last. If they ever want to resurrect the Bond villain “Jaws” and the 74-year-old Richard Kiel isn’t up for it, Alex Ovechkin would be perfect.
