Celebrity siblings are sort of a weird case study in everything from family dynamics to facial features.

Do the younger siblings try to become famous because of the older siblings? Are they trying to make their own name on merit or just riding on coat tails?

What happens when the celebrity siblings look so much alike people get them confused!? How's it possible to make a name for yourself if everyone thinks you're someone else!?

Check out 17 celebrity sibling duos who might actually be the same person.

Pippa and Kate Middleton
Pippa Middleton might have the better...ASSETS...but she and sister Kate Middleton definitely got the same amazing smile.

Then there's the possibility we're all being punked by some elaborate conspiracy. Maybe these famous sibling sets aren't actually siblings at all.

It makes you think. And blame the Illuminati.

And then there are the celebrity look-alikes, those who aren't related but might as well be. Heck, some of these look more like other celebs than their actual siblings ...

What's in a name? As it turns out, maybe everything.

Since Shakespeare first posited the question in Romeo and Juliet, actors have been using fake names to land professional roles. Not only did it allow them some semblance of privacy before the dawn of Wikipedia, but let's face it, some people just aren't born with great names.

Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor? Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta? Quite a mouthful.

If an actor or musician's entire career is dedicated to being someone else - a character or personality, perhaps - then a good stage name can go a long way to making that career explode.

More celebrities use pseudonyms than you might think. In fact, here are 67 stars who don't use their real names. Which ones did you know before viewing this gallery?

Lorde
Musical sensation Lorde was given the name Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor at birth. We'd probably go with Lorde, too.

Hollywood has a bit of a Peter Pan complex sometimes never wanting its child actors to grow up. But grow up they must as people do.

Occasionally, the actors and actresses we love as children make the transition to adult stars ... sometimes making a pit stop as amateur porn stars ... before going on to transition successfully into adult actors known for more than just their childhood roles.

Sometimes those transitions are less successful and we spend their infamous adulthoods wondering what happened?

(Drugs and alcohol happened, that's what. Looking at you, Lindsay Lohan.)

Others, like second-time mama Drew Barrymore, go through seriously rough growing pains and emerge on the other side bigger and better than anyone could have imagined. Maybe there's hope for LiLo yet.

And then there's Leonardo DiCaprio who just gets better and better with age. Seriously. He's a fine wine.

Take a look at these 21 child actors who grew up and stayed famous. Or infamous. 

Anna Paquin
Anna Paquin won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in The Piano. She went on to play Rogue and Sookie Stackhouse. Not too bad.

Ahhh, siblings. You can't live with them, you can't kill them. 

KIDDING! 

Today is National Siblings Day! The other day a year we pretend to like our built-in best friends because social media tells us to. (The first day is Christmas, because presents, obvs.)

In honor of National Siblings Day, which is probably a totally made up day created by someone attempting to bury the hatchet with a brother or sister by publicly professing that Imma let you finish by my sibling is the best sibling ever, our celebrity gossip editors thought it would be grand to take a look at some of our favorite star siblings:

From the fabulous to the feuding to the famewhores, Hollywood is rife with celebrity siblings. Now to decide if you and your siblings are more or less dysfunctional than they are.

Dakota Fanning is all grown up.

The actress, who rose to fame at the age of seven in I Am Sam, covers the December issue of InStyle UK and is asked for her response to the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal, considering Fanning has played a key role in The Twilight Saga's last two films.

"I just think that media frenzies like that," Fanning tells the magazine of the attention surrounding Stewart and Robert Pattinson." Everyone thinks they have the right to, you know, publicize the struggles and sadness and heartbreak and all of that. It’s like, ‘Why do you think you are the authority to judge people’s experiences?”

It's not a bad question.

Late last week, Stewart grew angry at a reporter who asked about her stats with Pattinson.

Dakota Fanning's appearance on the new cover of Cosmopolitan has sparked controversy. Reason being: she's 17 and the magazine is full of risque material.

Fanning, who turns 18 next month, appears gorgeous and grown up with dark eyes, light blonde hair and a form-fitting dress on the cover of the February issue.

That alone probably wouldn't draw fire from critics, but look the article teases:

Some say a minor shouldn't promote a publication with content such as “His Best Sex Ever,” “Too Naughty To Stay Here: But You Have to Try This Sex Trick,” and “Um, Vagina Are You Okay Down There?” But Cosmopolitan defended its decision.

“It is one thing to educate young women about sex and their bodies, but putting a young, underage girl on the cover of a magazine that had long been known to push the limits is sending the wrong message,” one media watchdog said.

Cosmo's response: "We’re thrilled to feature Dakota Fanning on the February cover and she looks stunning. Dakota, who turns 18 this month, is a mature, fearless young woman and we're proud to honor her as our Fun Fearless Female of the year."

Tell us: Is Dakota Fanning too young to cover Cosmopolitan?

The UK is not LOLing over Lola.

Dakota Fanning has joined the famous likes of Beyonce, Christy Turlington, Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie by having a provocative ad campaign banned in Britain.

The nation's media elites decreed that Marc Jacobs' latest fragrance ad featuring Fanning cannot be displayed, as it fosters too "sexually provocative" an image:

Dakota Fanning Perfume Ad

They made the decision after deciding that the imagery was inappropriate and receiving complaints about the ad, which has actually been out since June.

The 17-year-old is seen wearing a short, girly nude colored dress, provocatively holding a bottle of Jacobs' Oh, Lola! perfume between her upper thighs.

The ad appeared in several magazines and newspaper supplements across the U.K., and yielded enough complaints from offended readers to force action.

Some complained that the ad is "irresponsible" and portrayed the Breaking Dawn actress in "a sexualized manner." Well, yeah, if you wanna get technical.

Does that mean it should be banned, though? Vote below:

Rumors of a love scene with The Runaways stars Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning are heating up. According to numerous new reports online, the actresses will have an "intense love scene" in the film, set in a hotel room.

We're sure Kristen will be imagining Dakota is Robert Pattinson throughout.

Those on the set of the movie say Stewart has become so engrossed in character as '70s-'80s rocker Joan Jett that the two have become one and the same.

Here's Kristen, in character with her skin-tight rocker jeans, leather jacket and a black mullet, taking a spill on the set of The Runaways yesterday ...

Taking a Spill

Girls jealous of Kristen Stewart can at least enjoy this moment.

Despite taking a tumble, the 19-year-old actress was a trooper and finished off her day of filming before enjoying a celebratory cigarette at the end.
