The same questions run through our minds: is this impersonator secretly related to the celebrity they look like? How would the celebrity react if they saw themselves reflected in a complete stranger?

Melissa Brazen can confirm all of this. The mother of two from Hales Corner, Wisconsin looks so much like Angelina Jolie that the internet caught on and many news outlets reached out to her with questions.
