Clones and lookalikes have always been a source of fascination. For example, people can’t get over the resemblance between Will Ferrell and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Then there are Jennifer Lawrence and Bella Hadid, who totally look like twins. And Ashley Graham and Eva Mendes look super similar, too. It’s crazy!
This week, Twitter found a new celebrity clone couple—Natalie Portman and “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown— with people tweet-demanding, “I NEED ANSWERS.”

But it’s not just their facial features that have people talking. They’ve both played women with shaved heads, have both worn similar looks on the red carpet and both burst onto the scene at the age of 13. Brown earned an Emmy nomination as Eleven in “Stranger Things,” while Portman starred in “The Professional” back in 1994. Portman also took on sci-fi roles in “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” as Padmé Amidala.
Comparing photos of a young Portman with Brown, it’s easy to see why the above Twitter user needs answers. So in typical internet fashion, Twitter responded. It didn’t take long before photos of the twinning couple started popping up all over the internet. The original tweet has since been retweeted 995 times, and has received 1,459 likes, as of Monday.
Many other users agree the similarity is uncanny, offering theories and further proof that they are clones, if not the same people. In the past, Portman has been compared to Keira Knightly as well. Perhaps Natalie Portman just happens to look like several different actresses and we just don’t know all of them. Yet. Others offered conspiracy theories—Brown is a clone of Portman. Alas, while scientists have learned how to clone sheep, they (supposedly!) have yet to clone an actual human.

What does this mean for the future? Will Portman ever play an older adult Eleven? Will Brown end up in “Star Wars”? Or will they end up on-screen together playing mother and daughter? Or sisters with a major age gap? Hollywood, if you’re listening, make it happen.
