If Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman announce one day that they actually were blood related all along, I think nobody would be surprised. And we would have no problem believing it. Since they first made their appearances at Hollywood, the resemblance was too obvious to not get noticed. Starting with their hair, lips, noses and ending with their body shapes, these beautiful and talented ladies never stop to win our hearts with their amazing work.
Natalie has had a series of movies that made her famous such as “V for Vendetta”, “The Other Boleyn Girl”, “Thor” and “Black Swan”, obviously besides “Star Wars” trilogy. She won a Golden Globe Award in 2005 for her performance in the movie “Closer” and the movie “Black Swan” also brought her an Academy Award for Best Actress.
She is currently married to choreographer Benjamin Millepied whom she met while filming “Black Swan” and together have a son.
An interesting fact is that Keira was even casted as Sabé, the decoy for Natalie’s Queen Amadala in “Star Wars: Episode1- The Phantom Menace”. Although Keira is British and Natalie is Israeli/American, even Keira’s mother couldn’t tell them apart when they were younger.
Keira may have made her debut as Natalie’s double, but she sure did managed to impressed us with her role as “Elisabeth Swan” in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series. She then became known for her roles in drama movies such as “Pride & Prejudice”, “Atonement”, “The Duchess”, “Anna Karenina”.
Her performance in “Atonement” got her an Empire Award for Best Actress. Keira has appeared many times on the list of “100 Sexiest Women in the World” and is the celebrity face of Chanel’s perfume “Coco Mademoiselle”. She made quite an appearance on the cover of the magazine “Interview” posing topless in September 2014.
The two beauties have almost identical strong angular jaw line and daring oval eyes and if that isn’t enough they are both talented and have remarkable acting projects along with outstanding acting abilities that keep us watching and admiring their evolution since they were star children.
So whether they play one another’s double or act independent, their separate talents would always tell them apart.
