Zach Braff Bears An Uncanny Resemblance To This Celebrity

When he's not being mistaken for Anne Hathaway's criminal ex-boyfriend, Zach Braff is confused for another TV star. Despite their differences in hair color, Braff and Dax Shepard look pretty similar — and the actors know it, too.

Back in 2018, the Scrubs star tweeted a photo of him and Shepard together, followed by a face-swapped version of the image. The altered photo apparently came from Kristen Bell — if your wife agrees that you have a doppelgänger, you know you look alike! The image is almost eerie; you can barely tell the faces are changed or that the second photo isn't real.

The Bless this Mess star tweeted a response to Braff, too, writing, "For me, it's really the pictures in the left colomn [sic]. I mean, it almost appears that there was no swap there." He's not wrong! The two comedians are great sports about the whole thing, though.

Zach Braff once made a joke about Dax Shepard's magazine cover

The Scrubs actor isn't afraid to have a little fun with his lookalike and friend's success. When Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell appeared on the cover of People magazine in March 2019, Zach Braff had just the right comment to share about the happy couple's smiling photo.

After Bell shared the cover image on Instagram, Braff commented, "We look cute here." In fact, the two actors' similarities are so well documented that Braff's IMDb page states that he "is frequently mistaken for Dax Shepard." But it doesn't seem like Braff minds at all. In addition to joking about the similarities on Twitter and Instagram, Braff also shared a hilarious story with The Chew in 2018 (via Us Weekly), explaining that his doctor thought he was a less-in-shape version of Shepard.

And aside from Raffaello Follieri, there's another lookalike in the mix, too. In October 2018, Braff tweeted a photo of him and David Duchovny on an Amtrak, writing, ".@daxshepard where are you? We scheduled a meeting on this Amtrak train." Well played! Braff may never stop being confused for Shepard, but at least he's having fun with it.
