Brad Pitt poses in the Oscars press room on Sunday, April 25, 2021 at Union Station in Los Angeles.
Nathan Meads is a single dad from Oxford, England who works as a subcontractor, but his odd resemblance to Brad Pitt has drawn so much attention it has affected his love life.
Speak New York Post, Meads, 35, spoke about how his resemblance to Pitt, 57, makes it difficult to date actor-obsessed women. The father-of-two revealed he started working as an impersonator three years ago after many people made several comments about his resemblance.
“I was first told when I was 20 that I looked like Brad Pitt and it continued for about 10 years, but I still didn’t care about it,” he said.
“Some people would say that I must have been related to him or that my mother must have had an affair with him,” he added. “A lot of people, even now, will do a double take as they walk past me or ask me for a photo, although some of them take photos without me realizing it.”
Meads said it took years for her to figure out how to make her likeness work for her. He was contacted by Dorien Rose, a lookalike of Angelina Jolie who wanted to collaborate with him. He earns between about $ 350 and $ 690 per look-alike concert.
“While hundreds of people have told me I look like him, I never did anything about it, but it became a constant thing that wherever I went people said it,” he said. Meads said, adding that he had sent photos to four different look-alike agencies who were eager to work with him.
When it comes to dating, Meads admitted that it’s pretty hard to find love because of the way she looks, saying, “I get picked on by women a lot. Some of them just can’t believe how much I look like him and some of them accuse me of ‘cat fishing’. People always try to video call me live on my Instagram because they don’t think I’m real.
Although he has tried dating apps, some women have accused him of having fake profiles and others will “literally start stalking him”.
“I just deleted my dating profiles and remain single,” he said. “Anyway, I’m not really looking for love and I don’t want to settle down because my daughters are my world and my top priority. I’m not looking for my Angelina.
Apparently, his status as a doppelgänger has earned him red carpet invitations, including the Glamor Awards in London.
Meads also joked that people are “always so surprised at his humility and his down to earth.” “I just think we’re all the same and I just got blessed with this beautiful appearance,” he said.
While Meads and Pitt have yet to meet face to face, the lookalike is hoping they will one day. “I’m a big fan of Brad Pitt and I think he’s a great actor. He plays all of his roles brilliantly and seems like a real gentleman and a family man, so we have that in common, even though we have very different bank balances, ”Meads joked.
