Bella Hadid may be carving out her own career as the fashion world’s latest model to know, but right now she’s the talk of the town on account of her resemblance to a certain A-lister: Jennifer Lawrence. The two have an uncanny resemblance, which the 19-year-old has acknowledged in a new interview.
And now the model has opened up about being compared to the world’s highest-paid actress. “I never saw it, but there are some photos that it’s really weird, and we look very similar,” she told Seventeen magazine.
“People say it all the time. I’ll walk onto set and five people will say, ‘You know who you look like?’ and I’m like, ‘Jennifer Lawrence?’ then they’ll say, ‘How’d you know I was going to say that?’ and I’ll go, ‘Because I hear it five times a day!”
It recently transpired that the teenager wants to follow in Jennifer Lawrence’s footsteps, revealing that she has an acting career in her sights.
“I eventually want to act,” she told Editorialist magazine.
For now, however, Bella is following in her big sister Gigi Hadid’s footsteps in the world of modelling.
But don’t think that having the same career means that there is any sibling rivalry. “I’ve always been really hard on myself,” she shared.
“Gigi really helped me. She would say, ‘It’s not about you. Maybe they don’t want a brown haired, blue-eyed girl, they want a blonde haired, brown-eyed girl. It’ll all happen the way it’s supposed to happen.’”
