We all associate entertainment with sports. They are thoroughly connected through our culture. So of course there are comparisons between athletes and celebrities/teen idols. From lookalikes to similar personalities, athletes and entertainment figures are always connected to one another and being compared. Here are 10 of those comparisons.
Korver, a three-point extraordinaire on the Jazz, has resembled a certain actor ever since he came into the NBA via Creighton.
The actor Korver resembles? Ashton Kutcher. They don't look alike if you put them side-by-side, but separately, they definitely have a resemblance. It must be the combination of the hair and the face. Either way, there is something in their looks that tie these two together.
Mark Sanchez has only been on the sports scene for a few years now, but it seems like he will be a mainstay. And being in New York, he will probably get involved with the entertainment industry in some way.
Grenier is the star of HBO's entourage. He has a similar look to Sanchez, and they also share that cool, calm, and collected vibe.
Brady's new hairdo screams Justin Bieber. Is he taking a cue from the 15-year-old singing sensation?
Bieber is the new "it-boy" for the all the teeny-bopper magazines, and has throngs of fans calling his name. And now he's got Tom Brady rocking his hair style? Props to the kid.
Let's face it—when it comes to soccer royalty, it all belongs to Beckham, on and off the field.
Minus the hideous beard, Pitt is certainly one of the first names that come to mind when you think of actors. He may not be the best, but he certainly has the swagger like Beckham. And they kind of look alike.
Since USC seems to be all the rage in the news lately, why not bring up Reggie Bush. Bush has made a name for himself for both good and bad reasons on the field.
So they don't look that much alike, but close enough. Both also have talent (football and singing). Plus, Usher is part owner of the Cavs, so he knows sports.
I know, it's tennis. But Blake is good and looks pretty similar to his celeb counterpart.
They look pretty similar (maybe it's the skin tone) and both are extremely talented.
The Caps' defenseman has an uncanny resemblance to the actor in the following slide.
See the resemblance? Tatum is one of Hollywood's up and comers.
His play hasn't been quite up to par in the World Cup, but he is still one of the fans' most well-liked players.
One of the stars of the Twilight series, Lautner not only resembles C. Ronaldo, but may have as many teen fans as Cristiano Ronaldo does fans.
Okay, so Parker doesn't exactly look like her celeb counterpart, (see next slide) but they both are at the top of their league in their professions. And of course, I had to include at least one woman in this list.
Rihanna is one of the top performers out there.
A-Rod always seems to fall between the lines of entertainment and sports. One day he's with Madonna, another day with Kate Hudson, and now Cameron Diaz. Snookie is probably next.
Speaking of Snookie...Jersey Shore's Pauly D sure has the flair to match A-Rod. Both bring much attention to themselves. And I do see a bit of a resemblance.
