- Many celebrities get honored by having wax figures and dolls created in their likeness.
- Sometimes, however, these dolls look nothing like them.
- From a Kelly Osbourne plush doll that missed the mark to a Timothée Chalamet ventriloquist figure that freaked out the internet, there have been more celebrity doll lookalike mishaps than you’d think.

But “likeness” is the key word here.
These 11 celebrities received a huge honour when they were immortalised in doll-form – so it’s really too bad their figurines don’t look anything like them.
Check them out below.
This Timothée Chalamet ventriloquist doll left eBay shoppers and fans divided — and creeped out.
This ventriloquist figure, complete with Chalamet’s Golden Globes embroidered bib ensemble, was listed on eBay for $US122,795. It wasn’t necessarily the price of the doll that shocked both fans of the actor and eBay shoppers, but rather its alarming appearance.
This “Beauty and the Beast” doll of Emma Watson as Belle looks a lot more like Justin Bieber.
Regrettably, the doll fell flat. Disney’s Belle-doll ended up looking less like Watson and, according to the internet, more like a frightful mashup of Justin Bieber, the Queen of Hearts, and Lord Farquaad, the main antagonist of the 2001 animated feature film, “Shrek.”
Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” singing doll plays music — but that’s where the similarities between the two end.
What this doll does well: sing a clip from Taylor Swift‘s hit song, “You Belong With Me.” What this doll does poorly: look anything like Taylor Swift.
These Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dolls are borderline offensive.
The maker of these Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dolls claimed that they were meant to be fun, and weren’t intended to be realistic replicas of the couple.
Lindsay Lohan’s figurine looks more like Ariel the mermaid.
According to Mattel, Lindsay Lohan’s “My Scene” doll was decked out in a movie premiere-ready outfit that included a faux fur-trimmed coat, and came with movie-themed accessories, like a velvet-style rope and a director’s chair.
Too bad it doesn’t look at all like her.
John Travolta’s doll looks like it’s cosplaying as Luke Skywalker in “The Last Jedi.”
John Travolta’s doll was called “On Stage: John Travolta Superstar,” and could bend and twist at the waist.
We get that Robert Pattinson’s doll was supposed to look vampiric, but this is just ghastly.
Robert Pattinson‘s doll was modelled after his character in Twilight, but ended up looking more like a cross between a vampire and Derek Zoolander.
This Kelly Osbourne doll looks depressingly emo.
Osbourne sported pink hair when she was 17 years old and filming her family’s MTV reality show called “The Osbournes.”
Harry Styles’ former One Direction band mate Louis said: “We were really happy with [the dolls], except Harry looks like Susan Boyle.”
Drew Barrymore’s doll is a little bit cross-eyed.
Even though Barrymore is purportedly a big fan of Barbie, her doll looks more like Kathy Griffin.
Frida Kahlo’s family is not happy with Mattel’s “inaccurate representation” of the artist.
The controversial doll, which does not depict Frida Kahlo’s famous unibrow or her disability, was not met with approval by Kahlo’s family. They released a statement on Instagram claiming that Mattel “does not have the proper authorization to use the image of Frida Kahlo.”
