7 Celebs Who Time-Traveled From Other Eras


From Jennifer Lawrence to Shia LaBeouf, you may not know some celebrities as well as you think!

If you’re looking for something timeless to watch this October, look no further than NBC’s new show of the exact name: Timeless. Premiering Oct. 3 at 10/9c, Timeless sees three unlikely heroes time travelling from the modern day into the past to stop a villain hell-bent on destroying America by changing the past, while being careful not to alter events themselves. Created by Eric Kripke, who is responsible for Supernatural, and Shawn Ryan, who created The Shield, Timeless is set to be a whip-smart, thrilling journey. Playing off the show's premise, here are eight celebrities who look like they might have time-travelled from other eras.

1. Shia LaBeouf

We don’t want to over inflate what is already an over inflated ego, but Shia LaBeouf looks suspiciously like a young Albert Einstein. And if anyone was going to time travel to the future, it would be Einstein... right? Something to think about.

2. Jennifer Lawrence

Zubaida Tharwat is an Egyptian actress from the '60s... Or is she? Photos suggest she might actually be a time travelling Jennifer Lawrence.

3. Hugh Grant

The resemblance between poet Oscar Wilde and actor Hugh Grant is uncanny. And given they’re both known for their hard-partying, womanizing ways, one can only wonder what feat of time travel is going on right under our noses.

4. Ellen Degeneres

There is something very calm and wise about Ellen Degeneres sometimes, like she knows something that nobody else does. Maybe that secret is that she’s really Henry David Thoreau, travelling through time to fulfil his dream of being a daytime TV talk show host?

5. Lady Gaga

Of course Lady Gaga couldn’t be from our own time. She’s so unique, it makes perfect sense that she might actually be Laura Nyro, a singer-songwriter from the '60s-'70s era. Being a time traveller is some very avant garde performance art indeed!

6. Bruce Willis

An army general from the '30s, Douglas MacArthur has the same nothing-to-lose look and cowboy attitude as Bruce Willis. Perhaps because they are one and the same?

7. Tommy Lee Jones

Maybe after President Andrew Johnson was impeached, he discovered time travel and decided life would be better as a 21st century actor. And that’s how we got Tommy Lee Jones.
