Some animations actually even conciously play with this trope with TalkingToHimself by having the actor voice themselves...and someone else (for total RefugeInAudacity, they even point the celebrity out themselves).

To what extent this is done is a subject for discussions amongst fans. Do the actors themselves not exist? Do other works the actors have appeared in exist? If they do, who starred in them? It's probably best not to [[BellisariosMaxim overthink]] these, but some impulsive connections are bound to occur. If taken far enough, such speculation can overlap with the LiteraryAgentHypothesis. (In fact, the LiteraryAgentHypothesis may be the best way out of the paradox: the Tenth Doctor doesn't ''actually'' look like Creator/DavidTennant any more than Film/ErinBrockovich really looks like Creator/JuliaRoberts.)

The answer usually gone with is the simplest one -- things went the same way, but in place of the actor or show that could not exist, it was a ''very similar'' actor or show. This actually appears in ''Film/LastActionHero'', as the image above shows. Jeri Ryan probably moved to Hollywood because she got cast in ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Pegasus: The Geminon Years]]''. Nobody in ''Series/{{Fringe}}'' notices that William Bell looks just like Mr. Spock because, in their universe(s), Spock was played by Creator/ChristopherLee. And so on.

So, in ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'', Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger doesn't exist and is not the governor of California. There's no Guvernator. Or, in the world of ''Film/BatmanBegins'', the Franchise/{{Batman}} comics never existed, and neither did Creator/ChristianBale.
