totally looks like...

My whole life, I've always been slightly jealous of people that look like celebrities [Tangent: and maybe that has spurred my addiction to www.totallylookslike.com.] My brother Mikey looks like the poor man's Matt Damon. My friend Ty looks like Anna Nicole Smith (during the years when she was totally hot and modeling for Guess...not the years she was a swollen train wreck.). I have never had this fantasy fulfilled. Only a couple times have I ever been likened to someone and both times these "someones" were animated.  What does that say about me!?!

In college, a roommates friend stopped dead in his tracks one day and told me that I reminded him of Daria. [Tangent: I guess glasses, dark hair and a penchant for chunky boots pushed him towards that conclusion, because although I can be fairly dark- I try not to be overly so.] Let's be honest- it could be worse;  it's not like I was told I look like Inspector Gadget or a Snork, at least they were lady cartoons...so that's a plus.

I labeled them just in case you couldn't tell us apart.

There's only really been one other comparison that has been made between me and anyone else...that one  happened to be an obscure facebook sidebar ad...also animated. [Tangent: This was sent to me by my friend Amber, who sent me this picture on facebook one day and told me it was spot on from nose to hairline...if I wore a lot of heavy eye makeup. Oddly specific, I realize.] Again, I don't think that these resemblances are decent, but they will likely not score me any kind of side gigs for celebrity impersonation...so I guess I need to find a more viable career path.
yes...that's a sorority life avatar...I think she's asian though. Oh well.

Who's the most random person you've been told you look like?

  1. Everyone used to tell me I looked like Flo from the Progressive commercials. Which... meh. Her hair bump (if you can call it that) is so sad and tragic looking. Although now that I've cut my hair off, I get a lot of Audrey Horne (of Twin Peaks) comparisons when it's curled. I've only watched one episode, and only after the comparisons came out - but dang! She's a babe! I'll take it hahaha!!

  3. You and Daria totally look alike. Also, I can totally see the resemblance between your bro and Matt Damon. I wish I could write like you do.

  4. Hahaha!!! I had never heard of TLL and now I have spent half of my work day looking/voting. I don't think I have a celebrity lookalike...and if I do, don't tell me!

    1. I'm pretty sure they had to block it at my former workplace because I spent the good majority of my day on there and sending it to coworkers. My favorites are the ones where celebs are compared to objects.

  5. When I was about oh, 75 pounds lighter, people used to tell me ALL of the time that I looked like Juliette Lewis and I HATED it. I also got "that girl from Married with Children" a lot when Christina Applegate played the young, teenage slutty girl. Yeah, nothing worth feeling great about.

    1. HA! HA! Juliette Lewis plays a spot-on trashy druggie so I can imagine why it may have been annoying. Pretty lady, though. My sister-in-law has that same pilled out southern drawl/whine she does.
      Random, yes.

  6. I swear to you that as I read your blog the voice I hear is Daria. Okay, now off to read this one. Just had to say that before I even read anything, just got excited seeing a picture of you next to your 90's icon doppleganger.....wow. I am too excited about this. Need a life, perhaps? ;)

  8. 1. Piper Laurie (specifically from the Hustler, where she played opposite the young, smokin' hot Paul Newman)
    2. Emma Stone (when I had blonder hair)

    I'll take both of those!
