Do you resemble a celebrity?

The ‘brush with fame’ thread got me thinking about an experience I had in high school: someone whose name I can’t even dig up now won a golf tournament and got his picture on the cover of Sports Illustrated. All that week, people I didn’t know were coming up to me and asking if it was me, the first one before I’d seen the cover. When I did see the picture, I had to admit the resemblance was pretty profound.

Anyone else ever been mistaken for a celebrity? What famous person do you look like?

Michael Hedges, when he had long hair.

I’ve gotten James Woods, more than once.

Minus about 15 years, I assume.

Is that good or bad?

I look a whole lot like Satan. Does that count?

My brother is convinced I look like Alicia Silverstone…

…my brother also smokes WAY too much rope…

Veni, Vidi, Visa … I came, I saw, I bought.

My resemblence to Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz is uncanny, especially when he wears a cap (he’s thinning on top and my head is chock full of hair, though I keep it buzzed pretty short). I’ve been stopped on the street more than once for the resemblence.

People often tell me I look like Uma Thurman, but I don’t really see the resemblance.

My family swears I look just like …Joe Pesci!

When I wear my hair shorter and curled, more than a few people say I look a lot like Sable. I don’t really see it though, I think it is the boobs and hair (see for yourself on the homepage. I am listed as Kitten )

When my hair is messy and I need sleep, my daughter thinks I look like Courtney Love. I definitely do not see that one!

Coffee, chocolate, men . . . Some things are just better rich.

People have told me that I look like Helen Hunt, Mad About You star. I guess maybe, but she is about 15 years older than I…does that mean I look old?

I have been told I look like both Lars Ulrich and Hugh Grant.

I’m relying on someone who looks like me becoming famous within the next ten years, so that I can contribute properly to threads like this one.

Until then, I am unique amongst the celebrity set.

“Waheeey! ‘Duck!’ Get it?”
“Errr… No…”
“Duck! Sounds almost exactly like fu-”

I’ve heard Laura Dern,which I don’t consider a compliment…

Well, whenever people see me, they scream out “Oh dear God!” and then run away. Is that a good thing?

Two people that could not possibly have known each other said that I looked like Christopher Cross of “Ride Like the Wind,” “Sailing,” and most infamously “Think of Laura.” How they got that I don’t know–he’s a MUCH larger person than I.

I think I’m more of a combination of Cross (I do have the same eyes, mouth, and pudgy nose) and a younger Harvey Keitel.

Once I was a dead ringer for a young John Lennon (pre-hippie).
Today I look something like Tim “Mr. Sarandon” Robbins, though he is older and has a much larger frame.

I’ve heard Chris Cornell back when he had hair, but i don’t see it myself…

Yer pal,

I’ve been told I resemble a bizarre assortment of people:

Frank Zappa
John Wilkes Booth (!)
Connie Selleca
Kay Kendall
Beatrice Lillie

. . . I guess I’m a shape-shifter.


Which one?

Is that an exclamation point in parenthesis or are you saying that you look like John Wilkes Booth’s ass?
