Disney has done a pretty good job of creating strong, independent, and smart princesses, who are always in search of accomplishing their own goals. The best Disney Princesses are the take-charge women who won’t let any person or mythical creature stand in their way.
The top women in Hollywood are also independent, strong, smart, and willing to do whatever it takes to reach their goals.
These 12 Disney Princesses have found their doppelgänger in real-life.
We chose our list based not only on the similar facial and body features of these ladies, but also the very similar personal traits they share.
Here are 12 celebrities who look and act like Disney Princesses.
#12 Snow White – Katy Perry
This side-by-side comparison of Snow White and Katy Perry shows us some striking similarities. They are both fair skin women with beautiful red lips and hairstyles that harken back to a different time. Snow White was also living in a man’s world but she took charge of the situation, much like Perry in the male-dominated record industry. Plus, Perry’s music video for Roar shows that much like her Disney counterpart, she’s not afraid to interact with mother nature.
#11 Wendy Darling – Taylor Swift
Wendy Darling and Taylor Swift literally share the exact same expression on their faces when they are surprised or excited. They also both have a desire to never grow up and focus on the past — Darling with her actions and Swift with her words. They also seem to really care about other people and expend a lot of their energy making sure everyone around them is happy and gets what they deserve.
#10 Queen Elsa – Charlize Theron
Queen Elsa goes into self-exile in Frozen and Charlize Theron plays an excellent ice queen. Throw in their flowing blonde hair and similar facial features and this is a great match. Theron has also had to deal with her fair share of villains and she has always outsmarted them, something Elsa is also familiar with on a personal level.
#9 Tinker Bell – Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton actually named her little dog Tinker Bell and she carried that little pup with her everywhere in her purse. They’re both blonde, bratty, and always demanding in some way or another that they get their way. They also both wear short dresses and glitzy shoes. This is nearly a perfect match in many ways. We also can’t deny the facial similarities with those small button noses, cheery red lips, and slender faces with striking eyes.
#8 Princess Tiana – Kerry Washington
Tiana and Kerry Washington are hardworking and independent. They are both African American women who understand how to break new ground, and they share many of the same facial features that make them look like beautiful and powerful women. They even have the same eyebrows if we want to get really picky. As an added bonus, check out their selection of layered dresses — even their fashion style is similar.
#7 Rapunzel – Jennifer Aniston
These two women share one obvious trait in common — their iconic hair. You really can’t have a long conversation about their history without bringing up their locks. In Friends, Aniston also plays a character who spends years waiting for her Prince Charming to rescue her from a humdrum life. This is art imitating life imitating art.
#6 Princess Jasmine – Amal Alamuddin (Clooney)
Princess Jasmine is a strong, independent and well-traveled character who tamed a rough and tumble city boy who seemed too much of a free spirit to ever marry. Amal Clooney, as her name suggests, married George Clooney, another rough and tumble man who seemed like he would never settle down. Also, just look at those eyes and lips! This is a match made to be.
#5 Princess Anna – Emma Stone
Princess Anna and Emma Stone share very similar strawberry blond hair that’s immediately recognizable. They also both have blue-green eyes, freckles, and they’re both funny. They also have both spent time working with their boyfriends. Plus their both adorable.
#4 Mulan and Lucy Liu
The facial features on both Mulan and Lucy Liu are on point, but what really draws the similarities are their take charge attitudes and their martial arts skills. Mulan led her people to victory while Lucy Liu and her fellow Charlie’s Angels have saved the entire world on more than on occasion. They’ve also both worked with difficult men — Have you ever watched Dr. Waston deal with Sherlock in the hit show Elementary?
Megara and Tina Fey are both greek, both incredibly clever, and both share a naughty streak that is best defined by their cynical, snarky, and world-weary views. Fey is definitely the funny one in this group but they both share a love for slightly naughty smirks, as shown above. They are also both free-spirited, independent, and quick-witted woman.
#2 Cinderella – Gwyneth Paltrow
Both of these women are hard working and make their own way in the world, leaving nothing to chance. They also share incredibly long necks, radiating eyes, lush lips, long eyelashes, and a simple sensibility with their fashion choices. They even share a love of blue hair accessories.
#1 Belle – Emma Watson
From a social standpoint both of these women are elegant and incredibly smart. Belle is known for her huge love of books and Emma Watson attended and graduated from Brown University in the middle of her meteoric rise in Hollywood. They both have beautiful eyes, lush lips, and beautiful smiles that are impossible to ignore. They even pose the same way in photos.
Disney Princess have sometimes received a bad wrap for not being “real to life” but these Princess share a surprising amount of real-life characteristics with some very popular celebrities.
Here’s to hoping that in the future at least a few of these actresses get to play the real-life Disney Princess who they share so much in common with. We’ll be lined up to watch those movies.
