Kate Beckinsale wants the world to hear this out: she’s found out her doppelgänger and she’s not afraid to shout it out either. Beckinsale thinks she has a very real big lookalike in none other than Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.
“I look the same as Ryan Reynolds. Like, in an amusing way. Like when at times I see a bus trip on the road with a poster and think, ‘Damn, I look stunning.
Jimmy did not see the resemblance and even held up a photo of the two Hollywood heavyweights side-by-side. Kate understood everything about Jimmy’s doubts but she maintained her stance.
Oh wait, that ain’t meme. Also, I never have done that movie. Like, I’ve stayed at home,’” she told this to Jimmy Fallon in his Tonight Show this week. “He’s far from this slightly girly boy bander type. He’s like a huge Canadian guy.
The similarity is so powerful between them for Kate that she refuses to work with the actor.
I do really a lot of me in him,” she explained, noting that she hates to be in the same space with Reynolds. “Either one of us will be exploding for sure. Something will happen no doubt,” she joked.
She might be at the butt of all trolls at the moment but just think of the comic opportunities of making Beckinsale and Reynolds in something together, if she ever becomes okay to the concept.
How about a reboot of the Parent Trap, with the genders swapped?
Something along the same frame as the iconic 2000 made-for-TV Disney movie Model Behavior?
Maybe an entirely new franchise created based on these celebrity lookalikes?
Sure, Reynolds has a lot on his plate with Deadpool but it looks like Beckinsale’s latest movies are already in post-production. Just an idea, because why not?
