Leighton Meester + Minka Kelly – Celebrity Doppelgangers
Actresses Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly look so similar with their brunette locks and bow-shaped lips that someone decided they would be the perfect pair for a remake of ‘Single White Female’ — but they called it ‘The Roommate,’ set it on a college campus and gave it 100 percent more kitten murder.
Meester rose to prominence playing the role of Queen B (aka Blair Waldorf) on the CW’s ‘Gossip Girl,’ whose latter seasons made the actress glad to shed the role of her fashion-obsessed fictional counterpart to go on to more serious roles. Those include the indie film ‘The Oranges,’ where she met her current boyfriend, former ‘The O.C.’ star Adam Brody.
Minka played the normal chick to Leighton’s strangely obsessed college roommate in that ‘SWF’ knockoff. She’s also known for her turn in the short-lived ‘Charlie’s Angels’ TV series and a role on ‘Friday Night Lights,’ in addition to a long on-and-off relationship with pro baseball player Derek Jeter.
