Did anyone ever tell you....

you look just like ________? As I was avoiding work blog hopping this morning I found Betz and Anna Maria both talking about who they frequently get told they look like.

Do any of you remember the show Clarissa Explains It All back in the 90's? At that point I constantly was told I looked just like Melissa Joan Hart.





Then several years ago it became "Oh my goodness, you look just like that girl in American Beauty!" No one seemed to know her name yet so I'd answer, "Yes? Mena Suvari?" All. The. Time.


So, who do you look like? Post it on your blog, then come back and leave a comment directing us to your blog. (If you don't have a blog, no biggie. Just leave a comment and we'll include you anyway.) Awww heck, let's turn it into another giveaway!! I'll draw a random name on Feb. 3 for a free surprise piece of jewelry from PamperingBeki.

When we first arrived here, the barber told my husband that I looked like Brooke Shields, and he looked like JFK. Not sure what he meant, I have bushy eyebrows and Greg looks like a dead president? Truly, there in no resemblance to either of those, but hey, they are American, just like us!

Jenna said...

The only person I have been repeated linked to (and luckily not since high school) was Oksana Buyoul (I don't know how her name is spelled frankly) who was a big time ice skater and then had a serious drunk-driving problem... hooray. However, several people have said (and I agree) that my husband has Jude Law's eyes! Yummy!

Carrie said...

The only person I've ever been told I look like is my mom, which I take as a great compliment!

Anonymous said...

Used to be Molly Ringwald. My maiden name is McClary so people called me Claire (Like from Breakfast Club).

carole said...

In my younger days, it was Phoebe Cates. You're probably too young to know who that is, but as Anna Maria said I think it was probably because of the hair and dark eyes.
Now I feel like I just look tired..... ;)

I hope this counts. I don't get told I look like anyone in particular but I get "you look so familiar" ALL THE TIME. To which I reply, I must have a familiar face because I get that alot! Oh, and when I tell people my name they say, Oh, like the singer that died! Yes, exactly! It's exhilerating!

nor_lou said...

Not someone famous but everyone kept telling me I looked like this girl Megan that live the next town over. I never met her but a few people thought I was her and a few times they would yell at me and say I owed them money. Every time but once I was able to convince me I was not her. a little scary, glad I don't live anywhere near there anymore.

From the early 90s onward, I was told I looked just like the girl who played Bekka on Life Goes On. I can't even remember her name now. She later played in the pioneer movie Christy and was on E.R. I looked like her the most when we both wore round rimmed tortoiseshell glasses.

Thanks for the chance to win your jewelry!

Extremely flattering for me - it's Gweneth Paltrow (although it doesn't happen nearly as often as I'd like or as often as it used to...).

There was some website that you could upload your picture and they would show what celebs you looked like. I ended up with Ernest Borgnine. Oh well. It would have been nice to have a pretty gene.
