I was watching a movie today and I also saw "Piranha 3D" yesterday and it occurred to me, I ALWAYS get Jerry O''Connell and Jason Bateman mixed up. I also get them confused with Chris O''Donnell and sometimes Edward Norton.\
I also confuse Leah Thompson and Mare Winningham, Mary Stuart Masterson and Mary Louise Parker and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Mary Louise Parker (again) and Parker Posey.\
some of them its because of their names but in the case of O''Connell and Bateman, they look like twins to me.\
Anyone else get people mixed up?
all those 3 name actors and actresses from the 90''s. OP mentioned a few of them.
Elizabeth Banks and Rachel McAdams are interchangable.\
There are a bunch of actress I can never keep straight - I know their names but I couldn''t pick them out of a lineup: Emily Blunt, Rose Byrne, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Emily Proctor, Anna Friel, Bijou Phillips, Busy Phillips, Bryce Dallas Howard, Lea Michele, Paget Brewster, Sophia Bush. \
Also most of the skanks on Gossip Girl, The Hills and The City are cyphers.
You can call me any number of names, but I''m hardly interchangeable.
Lea Michele, Don''t Rain on Myyyyyy Pah-raaaaade
I know I am gonna get slayed for this, but I used to confuse Glen Close and Meryl Streep. But I know better now and will make sure to punish myself by flogging later.%0D\
Also used to confuse Laura Flynn Boyle and Julianna Margulies.%0D\
Elizebeth Shue is not the girl from Dirty Dancing. Or so I have been told.%0D\
Christina Applegate and Jenny Garth.%0D\
I only recently learned that Shonda Rhimes and Chandra Wilson were two separate people. Does that count?
Samuel Jackson and Danny Glover.\
They look nothing alike, but sometimes I forget who starred in what.
R5, are you absolutely sure about that?
I agree with Elizabeth Banks and Rachel McAdams, I''d add Parker Posey to that grouping.%0D\
And who''s the girl who ''s with Marilyn Manson?%0D\
Then there''s Amy Adams and Isla Fisher.
Dermot Mulroney and Dylan McDermott.
In the late 70''s I always mixed up Brooke Adams, Margot Kidder and Karen Allen. And Jessica Harper came along and fucked me up even further.
Nowadays, almost every time I see a picture of Helen Hunt, it turns out it is actually Laura Linney, not Hunt.
Amy Adams and Isla Fisher, definitely.
Humphrey Bogart and Hope Emerson
Bea Arthur and Fess Parker
All the girls from The Hills
OP, you wanna know how to tell the difference between me and Jerry O''Connell? I have a penis.
Jason "I Also Have My Dignity" Bateman
Benjamin Franklin and Meg Whitman.
Just about everyone just mentioned plus Sarah Paulson and Sarah Polley.
Bush and Obama.
Zsa Zsa Gabor and Eva Gabor. Did you ever see them together in one place? No? Hmmm.
I think Jolie and Magda were alternate personalities too
Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman but also Bill Paxton and Thomas Jane. Though I would never confuse Thomas Jane with Bill Pullman.
Patty Duke and Sally Field
Tobey Maguire & Elijah Wood
In that movie they did together I kept mixing up Ryan Phillipe and Tatum Channing. Which is weird because I spanked it to both of them on multiple occasions.
Geo. W. Bush & Alfred E. Newman
Sally Kirkland and Sally Kellerman. I eventually can remember, but I have to strain my brain in the process.
Samuel L Jackson and Laurence Fishburne\
I can never remember if it''s Jamie Lee Curtis or Sigourney Weaver who is the hermaphrodite.\
Willem Dafoe and Lauren Hutton
For years I thought Barbara Bush had a line of cereals now I realize...
Patricia Clarkson and Hope Davis.
Sarah McLaughlin, Sheryl Crow, the entire Lilith Fair ensemble=interchangeable to me.
When I was young Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino.\
Elizabeth Perkins (Big) and Margaret Colin (Independence Day)
[quote]Bill Paxton / Bill Pullman\
And add Bill Irwin.
The mother in Malcolm in the Middle, the mother in Everybody Loves Raymond, and the mother in Home Improvement.
Adding to R38, the mother in The Middle (who is also the mother in Everybody Loves Raymond).
Estelle Parsons & Kate Reid
Naomi Watts & Michelle Williams (completely dull and interchangeable)\
Natalie Portman & Keira Knightley\
Julianne Moore & Noelle Beck\
Sometimes Zac Efron and Chace Crawford
Bonnie Franklin and Chucky
Elizabeth Perkins, Elizabeth McGovern.
Amy Locane and Amy Smart
Amy Irving and Meg Foster

Barbara BelGeddes and Nancy Olson.%0D\
Nancy Olson and Dina Merrill.%0D\
Dina Merrill and Matha Hyer.%0D\
Martha Hyer and Delores Hart. I forget which one is the nun.
Dolores Hart is a Benedictine nun in Bethlehem, CT. Her uncle was Mario Lanza.
Aaron Eckhart and Thomas Jane.
Gwyneth Paltrow and generic emaciated street whores.
Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney. And most of the other people mentioned in this thread, especially Bill Pullman and Bill Paxton.
Kate Jackson and Susan St. James
Aaron Eckhart, Colin Ferguson, Mark Valley and Joel Gretsch. I think they are all clones of the same person.
Bill Pullman/Alec Baldwin
Clarence Williams III and Georg Stanford Brown.
David Paymer, Kevin Pollak and Richard Jeni(rip)
I realize I am a total moron, but I have always confused Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino and Robert Deniro. I read all the posts first to see if anyone else did too. Also, I can never tell Alicia Silverstone and Christina Applegate apart.
I can never remember which Baldwin brother Beau Bridges is.\
I also can''t keep Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz straight in my head.
[quote]Julianne Moore & Noelle Beck\
Burgess Meredith, James Whitmore, David Wayne.
[quote]Aaron Eckhart and Thomas Jane.\
And Colin Ferguson and Michael Vartan and Simon Baker
Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
Yeah, we get it, r67.\
Why don''t you and r24 organize a circle jerk for malcontents? You can beat your little dicks into a frenzy while you fantasize about a Kucinich presidency...
So over your drivel
Fran Drescher and Sandra Bullock.
R69 here. I admit, I do not actually get them mixed up, but they do seem similar(besides their voices, that is).
another isla fischer/amy adams vote.\
jude law and hugh jackman.
Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman\
Anyone who played at Lilleth Fair.
Thomas Jane, Cole Hauser, Aaron Eckhart, Colin Ferguson, Mark Valley ....CLONES!
I used to get Brooke Adams (Mrs. Tony Shaloub) mixed up with the actress from "Suspiria", Jessica Harper. Must have been the big eyes and pixie faces?\
For some reason I get Emily Mortimer mixed up with Samantha Morton. Could be the voices, the last names? They certainly don''t resemble each other.
Babe Paley, Slim Keith, Nan Kempner, Jerry Zipkin\
Also...the Miller sisters. I mean, what the fuck?
Leonardo Decaprio and Matt Damon.%0D\
Karen Allen and Brooke Adams
"Karen Allen and Brooke Adams"\
Yes, I used to get them also mixed up with Jessica Harper.
Kathy Griffin and Vicki Lewis before ''The D List.''
Carlton the Doorman (Rhoda) and Garfield the Cat. They both sound alike to me.
Melinda Dillon and Teri Garr
[quote] I also get them confused with Chris O''Donnell and sometimes Edward Norton.%0D\
Really? They''re pretty different to me.
yes r64, I thought Julianne had returned to ATWT when it was actually Noelle as Lily. They have the same demeanor (serious) to me and it was kind of freaky to find out they are friends in real life.
In the 80s, I thought that then-rising star Jay Leno was the same person as Christian impressionist Fred Travalina. Leno would show up on TV doing stand-up, and I''d think, "He''s irritating, but at least he''s not doing those bad celebrity voices."
Jason from Friday the 13th, and Uncle Joey from Full House.
Brian Bloom and John Stamos
Michelle Pfeiffer and Annette Bening\
