A continuum of similar girls

Is it just me, or is it nearly impossible to tell these three actresses apart?

If you can't, let me help you.

The first one should not be that hard. It's Kristen Stewart, the erstwhile Bella Swan from the Twilight series. She's been around awhile. You would have seen her as long ago as Panic Room, her second feature in 2002, and then in such other places as Into the Wild, Adventureland and The Runaways.

The second is Amber Heard, who I thought was Kristen Stewart when I first saw her. She hasn't been around as long, but she does go as far back as Friday Night Lights in 2004. You may be more familiar with her as Seth Rogen's teenage girlfriend in Pineapple Express or Jesse Eisenberg's zombified neighbor in Zombieland. She was also in this year's The Joneses.

The third is Teresa Palmer, who I thought was Amber Heard when I first saw her. In fact, I thought she was Amber Heard until about 15 minutes ago. I'd seen an ad for The Sorcerer's Apprentice, in which she appears, and I was sure it was Heard. Nope. You may not remember Palmer from anything, though she was also in December Boys, The Grudge 2 and Bedtime Stories.

For my money, they all look a little bit like Avril Lavigne as well:

But not as much as they look like each other. Besides, Lavigne has only been in one movie: Fast Food Nation.

This is the second lookalike post I've seen this week. Someone's going to need to start paying royalities soon :P

Because you said Jack Skellington looked like Peter Pumpkinhead, you have a trademark on it?

I wrote a post last year where I talked about John Cusack and Bud Cort (circa Harold & Maude) looking like each other ... and I think that was before your blog even existed. ;-)

For your information sir The Celelbrity Connection goes much deeper than the fictional Jacks.

I'll have to check out your archives.

And I know you were just teasing me. But I guess I take even joking intimations about intellectual theft seriously!

Kristen Stewart always looks really bored. Or really stoned. Or bored of being stoned. Yet she's always cast as a girl who people are falling head over heels in love over.

Forrest Whitaker's character was head over heels in love with her in Panic Room, right?

I recognised Kristen Stewart and recognised the face of the second lady, but the third picture - I hadn't a clue. When you put them right under each other like that, there really are a lot of similarites between them. That's like how I think that Maura Tierney is a female version of Josh Hartnett

Ha, that's a good one!

Teresa Palmer is not well known yet, but she's in Sorcerer's Apprentice. However, there's a decent possibility that that particular movie will make little difference on how well she's known.
