Theater photographer Michael White spent the last half-century rubbing shoulders with Hollywood’s famous faces. Nicknamed “the most famous person you’ve never heard of,” White is the subject of an upcoming documentary, The Last Impresario, which focuses on his prolific career.
While promoting the film, he allows the rest of us to take a glimpse at rare photos taken of our favorite celebrities at their most candid. White always brought his camera along to capture important moments. Shot throughout the 90s, the scenery around the stars ranges from elaborate award shows to intimate family vacations. Take a look.

Are these celebrities time travelers or do they just have random historical doppelgangers? Like all people who came before us, there have to be some repeats. If you looked at enough old pictures, you’d probably find someone who looked like you. After all, there can only be so many unique faces, right?
I suppose it makes sense that those popular and powerful enough to have their likeness captured by a camera look like the folks who make their livings in front of one. Check out these celebrities and their historical doppelgangers!
