Leonardo DiCaprio Looks Like 1960’s Woman Named Judy Zipper And Other Celebrity Doppelgangers [PHOTOS]
Joining the ranks of those like Sylvester Stallone and Nicolas Cage, Leonardo DiCaprio is the latest celebrity subject to be doppelganged after one Tumblr user found a woman from the 1960's named Judy Zipper, who bears a serious resemblance to the actor.
The time travel rumor began when the Tumblr user opened his grandmother's high school yearbook and saw a person who looked like DiCaprio.
"I found Leonardo DiCaprio in my grandmothers yearbook from 1960. ... Suuure 'Judy Zipper,'" Tumblr user lo-parksthecar wrote.
The photo was commented on nearly 3,000 users on Tumblr. So far, there is no word on whether or not the photo is authentic, since nowadays many different types of software are available to transpose one person's face onto another person.
DiCaprio isn't the first celebrity to have a doppelganger from the past. In May, a Harvard student found a man who bears resemblance to Sylvester Stallone in a 500-year-old painting by Raphael hanging in the Vatican.
Last year, a photo of a man from the late-1800's who bears resemblance to Nicolas Cage surfaced, drumming up rumors - created by the person who found the vintage photo -- that Cage is actually a vampire.
"150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult or a talk show host," Mord writes. "My theory is that he allows himself to age to a certain point, maybe 70, 80 or so, then the actor 'Nicolas Cage' will 'die' ... but in reality, the undead vampire 'Nicolas Cage' will have rejuvenated himself and appeared in some other part of the world, young again, and ready to start all over," Jack Mord of the Thanatos Archive in Seattle wrote. "From time to time somebody might mention to him that he bears a slight resemblance to the young version of that dead American actor, whose name they can't recall, but eventually, those occurrences will stop altogether."
Even better, there is an entire blog at Humor Share dedicated to celebrities who look like historical figures. The best ones? Jack Black as The Barber of Seville, Jimmy Fallon as the Russian revolutionist and Justin Timberlake as an unnamed ancient criminal.

Judy Zipper or Leonardo DiCaprio?

A Harvard student was bewildered on a visit to Vatican City, not because of the beauty or the history, but because a 500-year-old painting by Raphael which shows a man who is an exact doppelganger of Sylvester Stallone. While it's obviously not the real life Sylvester Stallone, the resemblance is uncanny, namely in the cheekbones, chin and the heavy eyes. However, Stallone isn't the only famous celebrity who was named a doppelganger of historical figures and people in paintings.
Sylvester Stallone has been hit with another tragedy.
Nicolas Cage has spoken on the vampire photo of him that made headlines last September. "It's a somewhat slowed down version of me," the "Ghost Rider" actor told David Letterman Thursday. (PHOTO: Screen Capture / CBS / David Letterman).
