Okay, what is it with people spending tons of money just to look like someone else? Where do they get the money? Also, being someone’s fan is one thing, but literally altering your whole appearance just to look like your favourite actor is a little too much.
Imitation may be the biggest form of flattery, but don’t you think that actually getting surgery to look like someone else is going a little overboard? Apparently, a lot of people disagree, and that’s why we hear about someone or the other trying to emulate their favourite star on a weekly basis it seems.
First, it was Sahar Tabar from Iran, who spent apparently got over 50 surgeries trying to look like Angelina Jolie, but resembled ‘Corpse Bride’ more than the star. And now, a pair of twins from Arizona are here to give her some competition. Actually, they can’t beat her. She is honestly the best worst celebrity look alike, but at least other can try.

Twin brothers Matt and Mike Schlepp have reportedly spent $20,000 on cosmetic surgery to look like Brad Pitt when they were just 19-years old. The aspiring actors appeared on MTV’s ‘I Want A Famous Face’ and spent months going through painful procedures and all the operations left them unable to even eat properly. But, who needs to eat when you can look like Brad Pitt, right?
The painful process involved Mike getting a nose job, cheek, jaw and chin implants, while Matt had a nose job and a chin implant, and between both brothers they had 41 porcelain veneers. With so many surgeries, they sure are giving serious competition to the whole Kardashian clan.
Matt and Mike before the surgery:
But, at least it was worth it to them. Or, maybe more than worth it, as Matt said.
While on the show, Matt said, “It was more than worth it. I would do it ten times over. It has definitely helped me get more girls. I’ll walk and get that double-take from girls and hear the whispering that follows.”
He went on, “I’ve had such a dramatic change that girlfriends I hadn’t seen in a while couldn’t stop staring, and said they wanted to cry! If that doesn’t make you feel good, then what would?”
And the brothers after all the painful procedures:
Mike added, “I never knew that I could be as happy as I am right now. I feel on top of the world by the few tweaks that I went through. Go through with the surgery now because you don’t want to go through life always feeling down with the way that you look.”
I don’t see the resemblance to Brad Pitt, but maybe that’s just me. Not to sound too insensitive, but to me, they look more like ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ than the actor.
But, oh well. If they’re happy with it, then good for them.
