What do Niall Horan and Ellen DeGeneres have in common?

Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

They're totally twinsies!

What traits, you might ask, could funny lady Ellen DeGeneres and One Direction pop star Niall Horan share? Well, from the looks of it, a lot. We break down the odd couple's striking similarities.

The pomaded coif

Do Horan and DeGeneres frequent the same hairstylist? We don't know. But what we do know is that these two sure know how to rock the pomaded pixie cut. They look so stylish and timeless — like Audrey Hepburn with highlights and a heap o' hair product.

An affinity for fine, tailored suits

When it comes to sharply-tailored pantsuits, DeGeneres is at the top of her game. That is one lady who knows how to work some menswear! When you think about it, it makes sense that Horan would gravitate to the style too, since he has the same lanky build as the talk show host.

The sometimes smirk

The smirk is the new wink, and Horan often sends teenybopper hearts a-flutter when he breaks out his coy, lopsided grin. No doubt DeGeneres' smirk — which we find to be eerily similar to the One Directioner's — has a similar cardiovascular effect on wife Portia de Rossi.

Speaking of de Rossi, we obviously all know whom DeGeneres canoodles with these days (and forever) — and, well, her wifey is fab. And it would seem Horan knows how to pick the ladies, too. He's been linked in the past to singer Ellie Goulding, models Barbara Palvin and Zoe Whelan and, most recently, pop queen Katy Perry.

Need more proof? Just look what happens when we swap their faces...

Um, pretty much nothing. That's what.
