Current celebrity counterparts to stars of the bygone era.

I was watching a film starring Emma Stone and couldn't help but notice how much she is starting to look like Gloria Grahame. Both have unusual speech impediments. Who are some other current celebrities who resemble stars from the past.

If we're just going by physical looks, the older Diane Lane gets, the more she looks like Natalie Wood.

I think Jolie is more like Elizabeth Taylor (eternal home wrecker temptress) than Audrey Hepburn.

Marie Dressler = Kathy Bates

Gloria Grahame was sort of body dysmorphic and became plastic surgery obsessed. She also stuck cotton up under her lip to make it look 'fuller,' which didn't really work and made her speech sound strange. Kissing scenes could be a miss, with the cotton being dislodged and slobber released to her co-star. She was an odd duck, Gloria.

If you can see past the difference in era and types, Jon Bernthal looks facially very much like Chico Marx.

R19 she also seduced her 13 year old stepson, Tony Ray, when she was married to Nicholas Ray, who divorced her, then some years later she married grownup Tony and had a couple kids with him.

Kristin Chenoweth is the new Jennifer Darling. She looks and sounds so much like fembot Callahan in The Boy Next Door.

Kate Winslet is the new Joan Crawford

by Anonymousreply 2904/10/2019

I actually think Kate is the newer version of Elizabeth Taylor. Both played rebellious rich girls when they were young before turning into gritty roles that flirt with vulgarity as they aged.

Any Adams and Doris Day (I'm talking about their career and general demeanor, not necessarily physical resemblance )

Chris Evans....Ricky Nelson

Drake (Bell) & Josh (Peck) often refer to themselves as a Millennial Martin & Lewis, but I don't know whether forcing one's own comparison counts.

Scarlett Johanson is the new Barbara Stanwyk

Janelle Monáe could successfully play Lena Horne in a biopic, although I'll admit she's not a dead ringer.
