We all fell in love with Ryan Gosling when he starred opposite Rachel McAdams in The Notebook. With his suave style, charming good looks and ability to make us cry on demand, it was hard not to follow the actor throughout his illustrious career. It's not often that we see a face with chiseled features like Gosling's, so you can imagine our surprise when we discovered that the esteemed actor has a doppelgänger who is just as handsome.
Law student and online blogger Johannes Laschet is not only the spitting image of #RyanGosling, he dresses like the La La Land actor too. If you're the type of person who needs to see something before they believe it then fear not, here are some images from Laschet's official Instagram page that prove doppelgängers really do exist. Check them out below:
Now do you believe us? The resemblance between the two men really is uncanny. And Laschet is aware of the comparisons — the law student told GQ that the comparisons between himself and the La La Land actor can be "exhausting":
"It often occurs and sometimes is exhausting.
While it must be annoying to be constantly compared to another human being, there are worse people to be compared to than Ryan Gosling. In fact, some may even consider such a comparison an honor. While the young law student did voice his opinion on the comparisons, he was optimistic about the situation:
“It’s better than when people say, ‘He looks like Danny DeVito.’”
Not The First Celebrity Doppelganger
While we're still fawning over the similarities between Ryan Gosling and Johannes Laschet, this isn't the first case of celebrity lookalikes that we've seen over this year. The internet went crazy when images of Instagram users Kari Lewis and Megan Flockhart went viral as the two ladies bear an extraordinary resemblance to actress Emma Watson. If that's not wizardry, we don't know what is.
Similarly, images of Edcell Ched were posted on social media and people couldn't believe how much the young girl looked like The 5th Wave star Chloë Grace Moretz.
The latest #celebrity to discover they have a doppelgänger was none other than Scarlett Johansson — reddit user denverjoel posted a photo of his grandmother, Geraldine, from when she was younger. Johansson was so impressed with the resemblance that she invited Geraldine along to the premiere of her latest film, Rough Night. To be fair, the resemblance is uncanny — check it out here.
While Ryan Gosling's beauty is no doubt unique, Johannes Laschet shares many physical qualities with the famous actor, and the resemblance hasn't done Laschet any harm — he currently has over 39,000 followers on Instagram.
