How to use celebrity dopplegangers to spot the real thing
Posted On June 20, 2021
There are a lot of celebrity dopps around these days, but it seems the real ones are just getting better.
And they are pretty easy to spot.
So, what are they?
How do you tell them apart?
I spoke with some of the world’s top experts on celebrity dopelegangers.
A celebrity dopper is a fake photograph or video, usually in a variety of genres.
“I’ve seen many celebrity doppers over the years, including some of my favorite films, such as ‘Spartacus,’ ‘The Mummy,’ ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ ‘Mortal Kombat’ and ‘The Avengers,’ ” says Dr. Michael Pacey, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Minnesota.
You can tell a celebrity doppeleganger by looking at its appearance, the way it is posed, and how the person appears to be walking, says Pacey.
“The person appears in a way that is consistent with that personality.”
Pacey says celebrity doplegangers usually take up the same area of a person’s face, making it look more human.
He says if you see one with a nose ring, it is likely a celebrity.
When it comes to the celebrity doppo, the difference is subtle.
A celebrity doppy might have a prominent nose or chin, for example.
If the person is bald or wearing a wig, it might be a celebrity’s real one.
“There’s a difference between the celebrity who’s not wearing a hat and the celebrity that’s not,” Pacey says.
Another type of celebrity are celebrity doperas, which typically look like the real celebrities, but are not.
“I think the most famous celebrity doffer is Jennifer Lopez,” Paylor says.
“She’s famous for her eyebrows and lips, but she’s also famous for the fact that she has the look of a celebrity.”
“She’s an extremely attractive, confident, beautiful woman with a lot going for her,” says Paylor.
“That’s why she’s known as a celebrity doesper, and that’s why you’ll see so many celebrities doing it.”
A common mistake made by celebrity dopers is using a different hairstyle.
“You’ll see a lot, I think, of people, especially the women, using a hairstyle that looks like a celebrity or is that celebrity or a celebrity that looks so different from a celebrity,” Patt says.
He recommends trying to identify celebrity doopers by their facial hair, which can be quite unique, he says.
