THE saying that celebrities never look the same in the flesh as they do on TV has never been truer than in these embarrassing snaps.
Social media users have posted encounters with people who they mistook for their A-list doppelgangers.
And while some of the lookalikes do resemble celebs – others such as a hot dog-loving man who was mistaken for Johnny Depp, look almost nothing like their supposed subjects.
Some of the most hilarious snaps involve people mistaking actual celebrities for other famous people.
One involves an excited woman thinking box-office superstar Will Smith was Odd Future rapper Tyler the Creator.
Another lady mistook Mark Wahlberg for his The Departed co-star MattDamon.
