The blogging world vibrates with great ideas. Clay Morgan has a ton of them. Months ago, he wrote a post about all the celebrities people say he resembles. Suffice it to say that Clay’s look-alike squad could almost fill a deck of cards.
Then earlier this week, one of my sisters-from-another-mister, Lori Dyan, posted her hilarious account of using celebrity look-alike software. She also informed her readers about this fun website that will give you your own celebrity doppelgangers.
I was curious what look-alike pictures the internet would spit out.
Prior to this, people with poor eyesight had told me I resembled Goldie Hawn (according to my grandma), Meg Ryan (according to a hair stylist I tipped generously), Kate Gosselin (according to Grade 7 students), and Kate Walsh (according to a neighbor I will love forever).
So, I uploaded my picture. And prayed.
Clearly God had more important problems to resolve because my best choice was a man: Lance Bass, Mr. ‘N Sync himself. I also resembled another male, Jensen Ackles, an actor who was in something.
Below is the collage of the two men I look like, along with six other women (whose apparent resemblance is more flattering but equally far fetched).
Because I’m vain and thought I could do better than two male look-alikes, I uploaded a more flattering picture. Two of my doppelgangers were writers. Good ones. But writers nonetheless. The person I resembled most was J.K. Rowling who–in this particular picture–looks like she’s suppressing a fart. The other writer I look like is Douglas Adams, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Grandpa Munster.
All in all, it was good fun.
I’m just thankful that the database didn’t include celebrity pets, because I’m pretty sure I’m a ringer for Pamela Anderson’s golden retriever.
Who do people say you look like?
