The dye had barely dried on Kim's head before Jared had taken to Instagram to show off his own shock of peroxide hair. Swept back from his face, it was even styled the same way as Kim's.
And just to add salt to the wound, Jared wasn't halfway across the world in his United States home, but right there with Kim in the French capital for Paris for Fashion Week. Seriously, what are the chances?
The pair were even sat on the same front row together at both Lanvin and Balmain, making comparisons unavoidable (and also highlighting the striking similarity both A-listers bear to Harry Potter's Draco Malfoy).
And we also spotted Kim's mum Kris Jenner taking a selfie with the actor, leading us to wonder whether she did, in fact, think she was posing with her own daughter.
But Jared can't be accused of copying Kim (for one that would be weird). The actor's transformation is all for his new role in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad, a comic book adaptation which will see Leto play The Joker.
And we've got to say, when he takes those glasses off, he does look every inch the comic book villain...
