I Look Like Who??? Really???

Recently, on Facebook, many people were posting a celebrity-look-alike pictures instead of their regular profile pictures. One friend compared himself to Spongebob (strangely accurate), while another friend compared himself to Brad Pitt (soooooo not even close).

And, one old highschool girlfriend fancied herself to be another Heidi Klum (Can you say rose-colored glasses?).

Obviously, this provoked many laughs.

Many.

But, it also got me thinking. What celebrity would I pick for my look alike?

Would I go for funny and pick someone waaaaa -ayyyyy out there? Someone like. . . um . . . Spock?



Umm. . . short hair. Check.
Pointy sideburns. Check.

Hmmmm.

Emotionless expression?
Nope.

Spock was definitely not me!

Or would I go with someone that other people had actually (flatteringly, really) compared me to before? Someone like Alyssa Milano?

Naaaahhhh.

I didn't see it.


I obviously needed help.


I turned to MyHeritage.com. This site is dedicated to helping a person determine his or her heritage legitimately, but they also have a fun page that uses face recognition technology to determine which celebrity actually looks like you.

How cool is that?
So, unafraid, I downloaded my profile picture and this is what I got.



OK.


So, I am more than OK with Cate Blanchett, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Ashley Judd as my celebrity look alikes.(And really, who wouldn't be?) These are all very beautiful ladies, and frankly, it was super flattering for my ego to be compared to them.


But, Hillary Rodham Clinton? And Mrs. Brady?!? Really?


In what alternate universe do Ashley Judd and Hillary Clinton resemble each other? And lord help me if my hair resembles Mrs. Brady's famous mullet. If that is the case, I will forgo my family's grocery bill this week to remedy the situation. Eating bread and water will be worth it.


Mrs. Brady?


Aaaaaaaah!


I guess it could be worse.


They could have compared me to Mr. Brady.

  7. Well.......I had MONICA LEWINSKY, Julis Louis-Dreyfus, Jackie O, and Geena Davis! I'm blaming it on my pregnancy. BTW I TOTALLY see the resemblence to Alyssa Milano. I have always thought that as far back as when she was on "Who's the Boss!"
