First, they claimed Avril Lavigne died in 2003 and was replaced by a body double, Melissa Vandella. Then, they said Eminem died in 2006 only to be replaced by an android clone. And now, they want us to believe that Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, among other Hollywood celebrities, are vampires?
Sure, both actors look incredibly good regardless of their age. But we personally wouldn’t go as far as to put such good looks on blood drinking. And yet, some netizens beg to differ, with the wild conspiracy theory recently taking TikTok by storm.
One initial video which has since been removed from the platform showed a host of famous individuals next to their ancient doppelganger—suggesting that they’re not actual doppelgängers but the exact same person. In other words, what if those photos of people who look eerily similar to some of our favourite stars were actually them, and they were immortal?
That’s exactly what this conspiracy theory suggests. From Reeves to Jay-Z and even Johnny Depp, it seems like no one is safe from being included in this list. Some users also noted that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor is in a band called Hollywood Vampires…Coincidence? They think not.
Even before the theory started gaining traction on the social media app, a writer from The Hollywood News had claimed to have actual proof that the celebrities mentioned above were vampires, citing that both Reeves and Bullock stopped ageing around the same time. Jared Leto, Julia Roberts, Ian Somerhalder, Salma Hayek and Will Smith were also named.
As expected, people were quick to share their opinion on the conspiracy, with one user suggesting that Robert Pattinson is a vampire too. While fantasy should be kept separate from reality, it has been theorised that the actor is (kind of) related to Vlad Dracula.
Meanwhile, another user offered up a logical explanation, “It’s a well-known fact that every person has a doppelganger somewhere in the world.” We’ll go with this one for now…
