Who knew that Cher had a distant doggy relation? Or that Amy Adams has family links to toy poodles? Or that Matthew McConaughey is somehow related to an emperor monkey? We've gone and done a little celebrity family history and discovered the animal ancestors of these famous faces.

Matthew Mcconaughey

Matthew McConaughey and this emperor tamarin are definitely distant relations. Look at that brooding brow. So sombre!

Jack Gleeson

Jack Gleeson plays the evil boy King Joffrey on Game of Thrones. In a parallel universe somewhere this pouty pug also rules with an iron fist. Everyone is theirs to torment.

Jonny Depp

Here's Jonny Depp and his canine counterpart. Nice hats folks.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are the Pride of Hollywood. Geddit?


Eminem and this pug both worry about the price they had to pay to become superstars whilst their friends fell down, like toy soldiers. But they're both made of tough stuff.

Daniel Radcliffe

It's likely Daniel Radcliffe was once a bulldog in a former life. That penetrating stare. Someone give him a biscuit!

Amy Adams

Amy Adams and her fluffy distant cousin know how to strike a poised pose whilst keeping their cultivated locks in place.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Poor pups. Both Leonardo Dicaprio and his canine pal know how it feels to be unrecognized for their great talents.

Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch used to be an otter. Fact. (Kind of).

David Mitchell

David Mitchell and this koala have EXACTLY THE SAME FACE.

Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel's secret doggy heritage - finally revealed.

Rowen Atkinson

Rowen Atkinson and this owl were separated at birth. Who knew!

Taylor Lautner

Here's a hard one. Which is cuter? Taylor Lautner or his twin Llama?

Eric Stonestreet

Eric Stonestreet and his fluffy friend look handsome and dapper with their well-groomed hair and sombre expressions. Definitely brothers from different mothers non?

Martin Freeman

Martin Freeman and this hedgehog are equal amounts of cute, adorbs and ickle.

Peter Capaldi

Peter Capaldi and his goat body double ponder the world of Doctor Who.


Cher knows that hairspiration can come from the most unlikely of places.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus learned her tongue trick from this little critter. Sorry Cyrus but think he kinda nails it.

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart may not be fluffy and cute, but she does kinda look like this little seal right?

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence's half sister isn't quite as hot as her.
