Animals that look like celebrities aren't a new phenomenon—they've been part of meme culture since before meme culture was really a thing, but they always manage to make a big splash when someone finds a new one.


Twitter user @nevona recently shared a photo of a dog who bears a striking resemblance to actor Richard Gere, and Twitter users loved it.

Gere, who is well known for his roles in An Officer And A Gentleman and Pretty Woman, has been acting since the 1970s.

More recently he starred in Hachi: A Dog's Tale, available here, which tells the story of a dog named Hachi and his devotion to his human.

You can see the photo of the dog below:




Several people posted comparisons, trying to find the perfect shot of Gere.



Users also shared photos of other celebrity lookalikes.






One user even has a dog that looks like a more recent version of Gere.

The jokes were, of course, plentiful.


Celebrity animal lookalikes never fail to catch the internet's collective attention. People love to see their favorite celebrities in the faces of their beloved animal companions, and they love to share it with everyone else.

Any excuse too look at photos of cute animals is a good excuse.

The book Awkward Family Pet Photos, available here, may not have celebrities, but it will give you a laugh.

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
