To us they are unmistakable – famous faces who would be recognized anywhere in the world. So perhaps that is why they chose to travel back in time to a world without TV, internet, and paparazzi – for complete anonymity.
Either that or they have traveled forward in time to join us in 2022, on a mission to right wrongs and change the future.
As physicist Stephen Hawking pointed out in his book Black Holes and Baby Universes in 1994, “The best evidence we have that time travel is not possible, and never will be, is that we have not been invaded by hordes of tourists from the future.”
But Stephen Hawking hadn’t seen these photos of famous faces appearing throughout different eras in history. If he had, perhaps he would say that they are evidence that time travel is possible, because we seem to have been invaded by hordes of famous faces from the past.
1. NICHOLAS CAGE
This picture, said to have been taken in 1870 of a man from Bristol, Tennesse, is a dead ringer for Hollywood legend Nicholas Cage. In 2011 it was put up for auction on eBay for one million dollars.
It immediately led to claims it was a photoshopped hoax, but the seller, Jack Mord of Seattle, Washington, maintains to this day that he stumbled across the original print.
Mr Mord claimed in the listing it was actual photographic proof that Cage is a real vampire who has lived for hundreds of years.
He said: “150 years from now he might be a politician, the leader of a cult or a talk show host.”
2. JOHN TRAVOLTA
Around the same time this bizarre image of a man that looks just like John Travolta was also put up for sale by a separate seller who claimed to be unconnected to Mr Mord.
The two portraits were linked together by the fact that the pair starred together in Face/Off, and it led to further claims they must have been edited pictures.
The unnamed seller from Ontario said he was inspired by Mr Mord to put his Travolta print up for sale.
He wanted $50,000 for the 1860 picture.
He wrote: “I know you are saying John Travolta is alive today in 2011 and he doesn’t look 151 years old.
“John Travolta is a Scientologist, and many Scientologists believe in a type of reincarnation. Of course, time travel can’t be ruled out as well.”
3. VLADIMIR PUTIN
As conspiracy theories go it is pretty “out there”, but some people claim the Russian president can time travel or is an immortal vampire.
Historic pictures emerged of two men taken in 1920 and 1941 who look like remarkably similar slightly younger versions of Vladimir Putin, now aged 63.
It has led some people to claim Putin is a time traveler from a previous era, sent to the present to right wrongs and kick ass.
The picture, taken in 1920, is of a Russian solider who does look like the leader.
A separate snap said to be of a Russian solider and taken in 1941 also looks like Putin and the 1920 individual.
This photo of rapper Jay-Z – or his unnamed doppleganger – was taken in the rapper’s home of Brooklyn back in 1939.
Jay-Z recently became the first hip-hop billionaire. He’s also pretty open about selling his soul to the devil, praising Lucifer during many of his performances.
Could he also be a time traveler from another dimension?
5. EDDIE MURPHY
Eddie Murphy has been time traveling since the 1920s, according to this picture of an unnamed man of the day.
6. BRUCE WILLIS
Bruce Willis actually honed his action hero skills by playing a major role in the Pacific theatre during the Second World War, according to one theory.
The Die Hard star’s doppelgänger is a WW2 military legend named General Doug MacArthur.
7. LEONARDO DICAPRIO
Leonardo DiCaprio was officially born in the mid-seventies.
But one image that went viral showed his exact double – a woman pictured in the early sixties named Judy Zipper.
8. SYLVESTER STALLONE
Sylvester Stallone is famed for his action movie roles in the 1980s and the catchphrase “don’t push me”.
But one staggering piece of art showed another famous face in history who is his spitting image.
The incredible painting of Pope Gregory IX in the thirteenth century shows the former Catholic church leader is an exact double for the Rocky star.
9. MICHAEL CERA
A man looking just like Superbad actor Michael Cera was discovered in 1930s Germany.
It prompted theories the Canadian actor traveled back in time as a spy to infiltrate the Nazis, or that he is even a spy sent forward from the past to infiltrate Hollywood.
10. KEANU REEVES
Hiding in plain sight in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, is this 1530 painting entitled “Portrait of a Man,” which many believe must have been Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves on a time travel mission.
The mysterious star shot to fame in 1989 with the time-travel comedy Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
11. JENNIFER LAWRENCE
Was Jennifer Lawrence an actor – in 1950s Egypt? Many people believe the X-Men star was Egyptian actor Zubaida Tharwat.

“Cursed charity shop painting ruined my life”, says British woman
A British woman purchased a portrait of a young girl from a charity shop and now asserts that the picture is cursed, reports mirror.co.uk.
Elliot-Brown, aged 36, spotted an artwork by an unfamiliar artist at
the Hastings Advice Representation Center in St Leonards-on-Sea, East
Sussex, a month ago.
Simultaneously, the seller cautioned Zoe
about the painting possibly being cursed, revealing that a prior
purchaser of the same artwork had returned it to the store with the
statement “it ruined my life.”
Out of curiosity, Zoe captured an
image of the painting on her smartphone and shared the photo with her
68-year-old mother, Jane Elliot-Brown. Her mother seemed to be entranced
by the painting.
she began urging Zoe to acquire the painting. Yielding to her mother’s
persuasion, Zoe paid £20 for the artwork. However, as soon as she
introduced it into her home, strange occurrences commenced taking place.
Zoe entered her home and positioned the painting in the living room,
their dog named Cilla leaped up and started growling at the artwork.
Cilla deliberately kept her distance, refraining from approaching the
picture. Subsequently, Zoe’s mother’s health took a sharp decline. She
began experiencing alternating spells of fever and chills, requiring her
to wear four sweaters to keep warm.
Concurrently, Zoe’s mother
seemed to be captivated by the painting. She continuously gazed at it
and even caressed the painted girl’s cheek. During the night, she heard
peculiar knocks emanating from the room where the picture hung, despite
the room being unoccupied.
Zoe managed to persuade her mother that
the painting held negative energy and was cursed. However, Jane
staunchly defended the painting, reluctant to part with it.

entranced by it, but not in a positive manner. She guarded it. She
frequently gazed at it. She ran her fingers over the painted girl’s
cheeks and polished the surface, although the painting didn’t require

became exceedingly irritable. It transformed into a sort of family
heirloom for her, something she began cherishing.”

magic power of the Lord of the Rings ring. It definitely works in an
attractive and charming way, it seems to pull you towards it.
“My mother became a bit like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings,” says Zoe.
herself says that it seems to her that the painted girl is very unhappy
and she stroked her to comfort her. She also does not attribute the
deterioration of her health to the purchase of the painting.

seemed to knock on the door, and when she opened it, there was no one on
One day, Jane became so ill that she fainted right
in the bathroom. Zoe called 911, but her mother refused to go to the
hospital and was eventually left at home.
One morning, Zoe entered
the living room and saw her mother standing and stroking the painted
girl on her cheeks. And the mother could not remember how she ended up
in the living room and what she did at night.

anything from what happened last night. My mom is still very weird and
distracted and doesn’t want to discuss it.”
And then something
even more frightening happened. Zoe and her friend Ben went for a walk
on a hill during a thunderstorm and suddenly saw a “creepy black figure”
that suddenly appeared in front of them.
They do not know if this
is related to the painting, but they immediately ran back in fear.
Deciding to get rid of the cursed painting, Zoey eventually took it and
took it to the same shop where she bought it.
And when she drove
up to the store, she saw that in one of the tires of the car, brand new,
someone stuck a screw. She gave the painting to the seller, but then
changed her mind and took it back.

Now the painting is kept in Zoya’s house in a box filled with sage (it is believed that sage helps against evil spirits).
She also hung sage in every corner of the house, although Zoya’s mother was very unhappy with this.

Wild man with a spear in his hand was spotted in the forests of Germany
A mysterious wild man, nicknamed by the locals “the wolf man”, was
photographed in the forested mountains of the Harz, in the center of
Germany. The man was completely naked and held a spear in his hand.
savage was accidentally noticed by two tourists who were walking
through the forest, not far from the city of Blankenburg in
Saxony-Anhalt, and examined the ruins of an old castle.
reached the caves in the sands, we saw this wolf-man. He stood high in
one of the caves and held in his hand a long wooden stick that looked
like a spear.
“He didn’t take his eyes off us, but he didn’t say
anything. He looked dirty and looked like a prehistoric man from the
Stone Age, like pictures in a history book,” Gina Weiss, 31, told Bild
to Weiss and her friend Toby, they observed this man for about ten
minutes. The naked man appeared to be in his forties and reportedly
these tourists were not the first to have seen him in the area.
It is assumed that he has been living in the forests near Blankenburg for about five years.
Authorities say they have received numerous reports of a person wearing a wolf’s skin or wolf costume over the past five years.
March 2023, a frightened eyewitness even called the police because he
thought that a wolfman running next to him wanted to attack him. In
other cases, people have seen how a savage is trying to make a fire or
building a hut out of branches for himself.
At the same time, it
is quite cold in this area in winter and it is not clear how this person
managed to survive here for several years.
According to Alexander
Beck, head of the local fire brigade, this savage clearly has the
skills to live in the wild and adapt to the changing seasons of the
Where this man came from is unknown. There are many theories, from the hermit to more mystical versions such as time portals.
However, there are those who believe that all this is just some kind of prank to scare tourists or some other purpose.
