To look at them, you wouldn't guess Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schreiber may have been separated at birth.

But when Time Out New York sat down with the costars of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge Broadway revival, some eerie similarities emerged.

"We're both really, really hairy," Schreiber, 42, tells TONY in explaining one of the many bizarre traits the actors share.

"That's true," agrees Johansson, 25.

They're also both half-Jewish, and when asked to pick their favorite condiment, mustard won cleanly over ketchup. They even answer the question at the same time. Spooky!

"Okay, you're right, we do have a lot in common," Johansson admits to TONY.

Could it be that ScarJo and Lievs have been living parallel lives all this time? "Actually, I don't know much about Liev," she says. "I don't know where you grew up, if you have any brothers or sisters, what your parents did ... I don't know anything. Honestly, it's, like, the last thing on my mind."
