Behold the celebrity doppelgangers!

While celebrities care about their image in the mirror, we care about our mirror image. Here are some of my Z-lister friends – the ones who halt traffic and rouse paparazzi (almost on a daily basis) by virtue of their uncanny semblance to the Stars:

Square jaw, thin name it, we have it. If only he cared as much as I do

Many fear the Orlando in me will hit on the Miranda in Rosie

Sometimes I think Anne is in my peripheral, normally it’s just Anna.
Anne polarizes opinion, but I comfort Anna in their comparison by reminding her that at least they are the same sex

Just casually looks like a supermodel. Next

Alice is cooler and funnier and doesn’t need a late night show on E to prove this. Nonetheless, they bear a striking similarity

In Lucinda’s defence, she is playing dress up…but she did an awfully good job of bringing Snooki the party

They look, talk, laugh, sound the same and should totally hang out

I don’t know if it counts when you choose your own doppelganger Logan, particularly if you choose Brad Pitt. But we will give it to you

Aloha! I might not give Tom the link to this post, but with the same shirts (not to mention hairstyles) this is a goldmine

Holy-moly-Wood! This one only came to me yesterday

Astronomically akin

Perhaps not an A-lister by international standards, but certainly in New Zealand, where two rugby games and a heat pump endorsement will take you straight to the cover of Women’s Day where it really counts

Well, we know what you will look like when you grow up Phats

This comparison is mainly in their matching round eyes

I should just live vicariously through Brother Bloom instead of claiming Orlando as my own doppelganger

The greatest book of all time

…Welcome to the roaring 20s – a time of struggle between the atrocities of WW1 and the pretences of the American Dream; the Nouveaux Riche and the Old Moneys; the Prohibition and the booming economy.

Set in NYC and Long Island’s North Shore, F. Scott Fitzgerald allows you to enter, if only for a short time, “The Jazz Age” and the flamboyant parties and affairs that came with it.

Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation (with Leo DiCaprio and the lovely Carey Mulligan) comes out on December 25 – surely the best Christmas present yet. The painful wait is even more unbearable thanks to the greatest trailer of all time..

And to conclude, the greatest quote of all time…

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter–tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther…And one fine morning–So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
