Do you look like anyone famous?
Or have you been told you do--flattering or otherwise?

One that really stuck out to me was when I was younger an older man told me I looked like Tonya Harding! Who thinks it's a good idea to tell a teenage girl she looks like the most reviled female sports figure ever?!
I should have taken his knees out.

1. The question is, does anyone famous look like ME?
If they did, they wouldn't be famous!

No, I don't. Someone told me in my younger days that I resembled Bridget Fonda, but I think that was because we both had bright red hair then (and I looked similarly skeletal at the time).

2. When I'm thin
I look like Sandra Bernhard. When I'm less thin, I don't!

3. A DU member once said
that I look like Laura Linney, but I don't think so.

I think it's a good idea to tell good people that they're good people, and leave it at that. :shrug:

5. Just since a couple of weeks ago..two different people.
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 01:41 PM by MercutioATC
I've never been told that I look like anybody, but in the past three weeks, two people have said that I look like John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and three have said that I look like Thomas Lennon (Memento, Reno 911).

I don't really see it..
