If you’ve watched any of the recent Netflix rom-coms starring Noah Centineo, you might have noticed something familiar about him. He looks a lot like Mark Ruffalo, the actor who plays the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But are they related? Here’s what we know.
The Short Answer: No, They Are Not Related
According to Popular Bio, Mark Ruffalo and Noah Centineo are not related. They just happen to share some physical features, such as their dark curly hair, brown eyes, and expressive eyebrows. They also have a similar voice and mannerisms, which adds to the confusion.
The Long Answer: They Have Both Addressed Their Resemblance in the Past
While they are not related by blood, they do seem to have a mutual admiration for each other. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon in 2019, Mark Ruffalo said that he was flattered by the comparison and praised Noah Centineo’s looks and talent. He said, “He’s way better looking than I was, yeah, are you kidding me? I wish I looked like that, I swear to God.”
Noah Centineo also expressed his gratitude for being compared to Mark Ruffalo in an interview with BuzzFeed in 2018. He said, “I think he’s a great actor and I think he’s hilarious and I think he’s charming and I think he’s handsome. So thank you.”
The Conclusion: They Are Not Related, But They Could Play Father and Son
While Mark Ruffalo and Noah Centineo are not related, they do have a striking resemblance that could make them play father and son in a movie. In fact, some fans have suggested that they should star in a remake of 13 Going on 30, the 2004 rom-com that featured Mark Ruffalo as the love interest of Jennifer Garner’s character who magically turns from 13 to 30 overnight. Noah Centineo could play the younger version of Mark Ruffalo’s character, or even his son in a sequel.
