What famous person do you look like?

Asked by marissa (2659points) August 11th, 2008

If you can post a link to a picture of the famous person that is great, if not, no problem.

No one! I’m like my own phenotype or something.

I’ve been told I look like Bill Gates or Lou Holtz.

Sorry ladies, I’m already taken. ;-)

I cringe as I write this, but I was actually once mistaken for Jade Goody…..
A slightly better one was when someone said I looked like Claire Danes (I do hold a Danish passport, maybe that’s what it is)

I’ve been told I look a bit like Jake Gylenhall

I think what you’re really asking is “which celebrity looks like me?”
they only wish they did! ;~)

People say I look like Alan Ruck, but I’d like to think I look like Edvard Norton.

I used to get Stephanie Powers a lot. Funny thing is she is about 15 years older than than me! I also used be told Jill St. John. I think she is about 15 years older too. I guess I just look older than I am. Now, I think I look like Pam Dawber

According to this site, I look like Annette Bening. (Also Alyson Hannigan and Rafael Nadal, but I don’t really see those. I can see Annette Bening a little bit. It’s in the eye/cheekbone area.)

Wendy from South Park.

No one person in particular but I have the long, thick, naturally curly hair, which, with a bit of picking, gets very large (past shoulders) and is reminiscent of the “Hair Metal” bands of the eighties (e.g. Whitesnake, White Lion, Motley Crue, Warrant, Cinderella, etc.). Even to this day, people occasionally confuse me with one of those rockers (aging rockers, now, of course). And besides the hair, the resemblance is due, in no small part, to my “this guy has partied a lot” look, as well as my attire and the accompaniment of a beautiful woman.

@macbean
That site’s pretty cool! Apparently I look like Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon and Hilary Duff…..maybe I should go blond?

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

I ran MacBean;s site and got back Hedy Lamarr Joan Fontaine and Lynda Carter!

flameboi's avatar

like Luis Fonsi but, you know, back in the day :s I stop going to the gym a while ago, right after I quit modeling…

generalspecific's avatar

from that site, I got Ann-Margret.
Weird.

jlm11f's avatar

Using McBean’s site, I got Michelle Rodriguez The site changes your matches depending on what picture you use though. So I don’t know how well it works. For example, I redid it with another picture, and this time I got Joey Yung

ladytmerie's avatar

I always have people tell me I am Jenny Garths twin. When I was experimenting with darker hair tones of my very blond hair people would tell me I looked like Mariah Carey. I say Jenny Garth.

lovelyy's avatar

Some say I look like Ashlee Simpson. I don’t see it.

BonusQuestion's avatar

I myself am a famous person! :p

La_chica_gomela's avatar

lol, so i put in a picture on the site for fun, large centered face, forward, blah blah like it said, and it came back it “no matches”
it’s like i’m psychic! ;-)

Dorkgirl's avatar

I used to think Melissa Gilbert, but then she did something weird to her nose & I don’t think so anymore.
My nieces think I’m much more like the mom on That 70s Show—not so much in the looks area but the kooky relationship with the husband and son.
Hmmm.

Bozo the clown

Molly Ringwald, we’re about the same age, and looked very much alike in her “brat pack” days. Now she’s on a tv show “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” on ABC Family Channel, and we still do. I always say, she looks like the ideal me.

Kay's avatar

Jessica Simpson or Katherine Heigl is what I hear the most.

tinyfaery's avatar

According to the website I am most similar to Liv Tyler, but many strangers have told me I look like Sandra Bullock.

mee_ouch's avatar

When younger, I used to get Debbie Harry a lot.
Then as I grew older it was Michele Pfeiffer.
I now get Charlize Theron or Britt Ecklund.

I like to refer to myself as ‘the Anti-Stepford wife”

MacBean's avatar

PnL wins for the first MacBean/McBean mixup! (I think. It’s the first one I’ve noticed, at least.)

augustlan's avatar

@Mac: Until someone pointed it out, I just thought you’d changed your avatar…so observant

Cardinal's avatar

johnpowell: I hope you are referring to BH before 02–03-59 Clear Lake Minnesota. The day the music died. I was having lunch in my car in High School.

Mike Holmgren

jlm11f's avatar

@MacBean – ooooops. sorry! to be fair, i was calling you “McBean” before the other user even started. I kinda always called you that and always had to correct myself.

marinelife's avatar

In 7th grade, I was told I looked like Ray Davies of The Kinks (second from left). I didn’t really, but I think it was because we had the exact same hair style.

jmbm's avatar

Brad Pitt, but only when I look at myself in a mirror. Oh by the way, I have to be drunk at the time.

mee_ouch's avatar

jmbm…..Does she have to be too?

jmbm's avatar

it sure wouldn’t hurt. Bad eye sight is a must.

mee_ouch's avatar

You’re a man of modest means…...How refreshing.

bridold's avatar

I’ve gotten Jennifer Lopez (What??) and Mandy Moore from several people… Talk about opposite ends of the spectrum.

MissAnthrope's avatar

I don’t like that site.. every time I put a picture of myself in, all the matches are MEN. Men like Woody Allen, no less. I keep telling myself the matcher program is thrown off and matching solely by the glasses, but way to hurt a girl’s self-esteem, MyHeritage.com.

MacBean's avatar

@AlenaD—My lowest match that was included in the collage was Regis Philbin, so don’t feel too bad.

TheNakedHippie's avatar

I get Sienna Miller and Reese Witherspoon the most… I see neither.

TheNakedHippie's avatar

I wish I was mistaken for Jessica Alba or something, but blonde hair and blue eyes don’t exactly make for an exotic look. :]

TheNakedHippie's avatar

@jmbm: HAHA! “Brad Pitt, but only when I look at myself in a mirror. Oh by the way, I have to be drunk at the time.”

Skaggfacemutt's avatar

I have had people tell me that I look like Shelley DuVall.

KingMalefic's avatar

I am told… Jim Carrey, Sting, Edward Norton, Jack Nichelson, and once like Leonardo Di Caprios brother if he had one… or that Shamwow guy on tv curses

augustlan's avatar

@KingMalefic Glad you changed your avatar…no one will mistake you for a girl now! Nice pic, BTW.

irocktheworld's avatar

Well some people thought i might’ve been miley cyrus
it was wierd…i dont even see it :P

TominLasVegas's avatar

I’ve been mistaken for Jon Lovitz a few times

Skaggfacemutt's avatar

I’ve been told that I look like Shelly Duvall.

breedmitch's avatar

George Clooney. It’s a curse.
