After some fans on Twitter pointed out that Lili Reinhart looks eerily similar to Brittany Murphy, 'Tati' from Clueless, a new conspiracy theory has taken the Twittersphere by storm.

After some fans on Twitter pointed out that Lili Reinhart looks eerily similar to Brittany Murphy, ‘Tati’ from Clueless, a new conspiracy theory has taken Twittersphere by storm. Fans of both are convinced that Reinhart is a reincarnation of Murphy, and it seems Reinhart is aware of the spooky similarities.

Lili Reinhart has been in the spotlight since she started playing Betty Cooper on Riverdale, but the attention on her spiked this week when she walked the Met Gala red carpet. Not only did she look beautiful in a silver dress that replicated the visual of running water, she was also accompanied by Cole Sprouse. This is the first time the two have appeared at a public event together, giving weight to the popular belief that they are dating.

A few fans, however, have recently started to look at Reinhart a little differently. To be specific, they think Lili Reinhart looks exactly, and that means exactly, like Brittany Murphy. The eerie part is, Murphy passed away in December 2009 due to pneumonia.

Fans on Twitter made detailed comparisons between the two stars, and decided that this side-by-side deserved to go in the Perry-Deschanel, Degeneres-Bieber, Wahlberg-Damon hall of fame.

Reinhart was in on the joke herself, and talked to Buzzfeed about it, saying, “Everyone says Brittany Murphy – everyone. They think I’m her reincarnated. There are a lot of pictures of us side by side where we look crazy alike. If you just google Lili Reinhart and Brittany Murphy, you’ll see it.”

Although the resemblance was obviously always there, it was really heightened after Reinhart’s Met Gala red carpet appearance. Lili walked the carpet in an H&M dress, and revealed in a Vogue feature that she took expert advice from Kelly Rippa and Mark Consuelos about what to expect from her first Met.

“I had dinner with Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos [Sunday] night, and they’ve been to the Met,” Lili revealed. “Kelly was giving me a bunch of advice, told me you spend an eternity on the steps walking. She said, ‘You’re going to be there for a long time. When you get there, just stop and take a moment and take it all in because it’s a lot.’ She said just take your time and walk slowly, because everyone walks slowly apparently.”

She also talked about how she chose the dress she ended up wearing and how she had not shown it to anyone in her circle of family and friends, because she wanted them to have the full experience when they saw her walking down the red carpet.

“[H&M] sent me two sketches, and one had sleeves and one was strapless. I immediately liked the flowy sleeves because I thought it felt very much in theme with the Heavenly Bodies. There was an idea to do a corset, and I suggested that it be metal because I thought it would be a really cool contrast with the fabric of the sleeves and the train. It’s just kind of badass. I feel like a Renaissance princess in it,” she said.
