Although their music couldn't be more different, country-pop chanteuse Taylor Swift and Swedish DJ Avicii bear a strong physical resemblance to one another, and Swift even insinuated that they might share relatives in common. The 'Shake It Off' singer recently posted a photo of their faces merged together on Instagram with the caption, "Just saw this, then immediately called my parents and asked them point blank if they kidnapped me from Avicii's family in Sweden when I was a baby. Of course they denied it. They would. #heyyyyybrother #WHOAMIACTUALLY."

Actress-singer Zooey Deschanel admits that people mistake her for pop star Katy Perry all the time. With their big blue eyes and shiny brown manes, the gorgeous stars might take that as a compliment. But the truth is, Deschanel is tired of it. "I used to get, 'I heard you were out at such-and-such club drinking whiskey!' [when] I was at home watching TV,” she told MTV. "I think we lead very different lives. At some point I feel like this will stop being a thing. I like the way my life goes. It's sort of strange to be associated with someone that’s doing such different stuff than me. It's weird."
