Lili Reinhart has an uncanny celebrity doppelgänger, and how did we miss this?

Have you ever looked at Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart and thought she looked eerily familiar? After turning heads at the 2018 Met Gala, a lot of people finally realized why Reinhart seems so familiar. The star looks uncannily like the late Brittany Murphy.

Murphy passed away in 2009, and we still can’t believe we’ve gone almost a decade without her. Known best for movies like Clueless, Just Married, and 8 Mile, Murphy died in her home from pneumonia at age 32. Her husband, Simon Monjack, passed away five months later from the same illness. There’s been speculation about her death and the exact cause, but the only thing we know for sure — she died too young, and we miss her.

Reinhart, 21, is just starting her career. While she’s appeared in a couple television shows over the last few years, her breakout role as Betty Cooper on Riverdale is what really introduced the world to her talent. And according to the actress herself, she gets compared to Murphy All. The. Time.

"They think I’m her reincarnated," she said to BuzzFeed. "There are a lot of pictures of us side by side where we look crazy–alike."

We mean, just take a look.

It’s uncanny, right? Reinhart’s hair and makeup at the 2018 Met Gala made some even feel like they were watching Brittany Murphy on the red carpet one last time.

Now that we’ve seen this, we officially can never unsee it (and we’re honestly baffled we didn’t notice this the very second Reinhart stepped into our lives).
