Kate Beckinsale Believing She Looks "Exactly" Like Ryan Reynolds Is My New Favorite Thing

Also, she does NOT have a "fake leg," everybody!

We're all familiar with Kate Beckinsale, right? She's an immensely talented actor who has appeared in some of the most underrated, nerd-tastic movies of all time *cough* Van Helsing *cough*.

Universal Pictures

Look, Van Helsing remains one of the wildest movies ever committed to film and it is criminally underrated. This is the hill I'm dying on.

Anyway, Kate stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week where she was promoting her newest film, Farming — and not the imaginary sequel* to Van Helsing that I made up in my head — when she revealed something that I now CANNOT unsee.

*Yes, I know she dies at the end of the first Van Helsing, but I don't care. Also, like, spoiler warning for a 15-year-old movie, oops.

First off, it was a whirlwind interview to begin with, starting out with Kate dispelling rumors that she has A "FAKE RUBBER LEG?" Because she can, like, stretch really far?! People on the internet are WILD.

NBC

And frankly, these are some Deadpool shenanigans if ever I heard them.

But then Jimmy jumped right in and outright asked her which famous person she believes she looked the most like, and she didn't even PAUSE:

"EXACTLY."

She even went as far as admitting that she sometimes MISTAKES posters and ads for Ryan's movies with posters and ads for her own movies.

And, as she pointed out, it's pretty upsetting to think your ultimate doppelgänger is not only a man, but a very manly man who's made a career of being a manly man who's manly.

NBC

And — I'm not going to lie, you guys — I can kind of see it?! Particularly in these pictures?!

NBC

Like, they have the same eyes and the same mouth?! Kind of?! Either way, they're both beautiful?! Is THIS bisexual culture?!

Anyway, despite MY being convinced of their likeness, Jimmy was NOT on board at all with Kate's revelation, saying that he didn't "see it" at all.

NBC

So, in short, I will NOT settle until I get a Van Helsing sequel starring Ryan Reynolds and a Deadpool movie starring Kate Beckinsale. WOULD WE EVEN NOTICE A DIFFERENCE?!

20th Century Fox

And Hugh Jackman can reprise his titular role of Van Helsing, and I'll finally get the Reynolds–Jackman movie I deserve. Okay, thanks for reading, bye!
