Isla Fisher’s Prank Proves Her Own Family Can’t Tell Her Apart From Amy Adams

Everybody has their celebrity doppelgänger.

Mine’s a mixture of Steve Buscemi and Jason Sudeikis (so I’ve been told).

Just humor me, internet.

But what happens when you’re a celebrity and your celebrity doppelgänger is nearly your twin in appearance?

Ask Isla Fisher. Isla and Amy Adams could literally be each other’s stunt double (which is not that bad of an idea if the two of them are looking to make a little extra money on the side).

While on “Today,” Isla recounted the story of how she and her husband Sacha Baron Cohen decided to prank their family and friends in the most savage way possible.

Sacha and Isla posed for a holiday card with their three kids with one minor edit: Isla’s face was replaced by Amy Adams’.

Jump to the 2:30 mark in the video below to hear Isla talk about her sneaky prank.

Isla described this ever-so-perfect con, saying,

I cut and pasted Amy Adams’ face over mine, so it was Sacha, Amy and the kids. And then we said, ‘Seasons greetings from Sacha and Isla.’

Nailed it!

So, you’re probably thinking that Amy and Isla’s family and friends were quick to discern that that redhead wasn’t the actress from “Now You See Me,” but rather the one from “American Hustle,” right?

Wrong. If you can even believe it, people couldn’t tell the difference. Isla revealed,

No one noticed. Everyone was like, ‘Oh, your card was so cute.’ I was like, ‘It was a joke. It’s not me, it’s Amy!’

No, this is so not cool.

Can you imagine if your own flesh and blood didn’t recognize you? Like, I’d be flattered if my aunt actually thinks she’s enjoying Thanksgiving dinner with Jason Sudeikis, but still…

It makes me wonder how celebrities feel about their lookalikes. Does Kylie Jenner secretly despise her Russian model clone?

Does Jason Sudeikis hate little ol’ me?
