It would be hard to find anyone who wouldn’t recognize Leonardo DiCaprio’s famous face.
The three-time Golden Globe winning actor is known for starring in countless films and has even traveled the world speaking on the issue of climate change.
But what if 41-year-old Leo hadn’t been born with a talent for the big screen? Perhaps he might find himself working in the Russian police force alongside this doppelganger.
Famous face: Leonardo DiCaprio has starred in countless films and traveled the globe to bring attention to climate change and environmental issues
Double take: The Russian police officer, who hasn’t been identified by name, was spotted on Thursday and a photo of the man was shared to Twitter by a Russian news account
The Leo-like Russian policeman, who hasn’t been identified by name, was spotted on Thursday and shared to Twitter by a Russian news website.
Though he may be a bit more portly, the Russian guardsman clearly shares some similar features to the model-loving star.
He has the same blue eyes and Leo’s trademark disheveled demeanor. His eyebrows are also remarkably similar. The Russian man gives a casually disinterested look to the camera, as if he knows he was meant to be a star.
LOL: The internet responded to the man’s photo with Titanic memes and jokes
Even his stature is similar to Leo’s. His shoulders are rounded and he slouches as he stands.
Many Twitter users were quick to express their amazement at the similarities.
‘Leo should do a movie with this guy!’ exclaimed one user.
‘For fun give him a makeover & tell him to lose weight. He’s certainly a lookalike [sic],’ said another.
Last laugh: Twitter users made puns about some of Leo’s films in an effort to poke fun at the man
You seen this? Some users wondered if the image of the man had been shown to Leo himself
Perfect pair: Others encouraged the two to meet with one man stating that they should even do a movie together
‘OMG WOT! Thats crazy!!! [sic]’ said one man.
Others encouraged Leo himself to weigh in. ‘Leo take a look,’ said one man. ‘People seem to appreciate your old lost twin brother from Russia.’
‘Draw me like one of your Chechen girls’ said someone, putting a spin the line Kate Winslet’s Rose said to Leo’s character Jack in Titanic.
Young and beautiful: 21-year-old Swedish model named Konrad Annerud has also been called out for his strikingly similar looks to a young Leo
‘The wolf-down of Wall Street,’ said another user.
However, the Russian officer may have some competition in the Leo-lookalike department. Just this summer, a 21-year-old Swedish model named Konrad Annerud also rose to fame after the internet discovered his similarity to the actor when he was young.
That said, Leo has revealed in the past that he is half Russian, perhaps this man truly is a distant cousin.
