People you've been told you look like: do they look like each other?
Over the years, I've gotten (in order),
John Lennon:

Harold Ramis:

Jason Schwartzman:

and Javier Bardem:


From this, I guess you would infer that I am Caucasian, have heavy eyebrows and a big nose. (If you have a burning need to see me, you can find me under my old screenname undisclosedlocation in the DU gallery in my doughy gargoyle configuration, or look me up on Facebook under my real name John M. Dantzler in my current, svelter configuration.)

Anyway, do folks to whom you've been compared in looks look like each other? Do the four guys above? All I see in common is that they are all conspicuously good-looking, which lets me out. It's a mystery to me.

1. You also look like Harry Potter
if you look like John Lennon. :-)

When Shirley Jones and I were both young, people used to say I looked somewhat like her. She was the only supposed sorta lookalike I had among famous people.

2. I think your friends are just trying to politely suggest that you get a damned haircut
So probably they're not really your friends. They just hang around you for the glamor of it.

4. I've been told on more than one occasion that I look like
Jennifer Love-Hewitt, Alyssa Milano, and Jennifer Grey (b/f nose job).

Dunno if I do, I don't see it though.

Here's my mug.



I will agree with another poster. You are a cross between Lennon and Schwartzman

:hi:

6. lol, nah, just a good pic. Here's a not so good pic, with shorter hair
with a little extra weight... the one thing I am happy to show off, is that I really don't have any wrinkles and most people my age do :)

7. OK, I totally see the Jennifer Grey in that one.
That pic, however is just as pretty as the other one though. Prettier, actually, cause its in color which brings out your eyes.

No wrinkles? What are you, like 30? Give me a break. :P

11. That's still pretty young, but you do look younger than that.
I remember ringing the bell for salvation army one year - i guess it was at least 10 years ago so I was probably in my early 30's, and some lady came up, gave a dollar or so, and asked my what grade I was in now. I was grinning about that for a week.

17. More recently, I was complaining ...
to a female friend about the greys that are beginning to streak through my hair on the sides. She said, "good, somethng needs to make you look your age!"

I worry, though, as a man, that the whole baby-faced look is going to work against me. I feel like I need to "butch" it up a little in order to be more appealing to women, especially down here in Redneckistan.

12. These are the two that have been mentioned for me:
I've had one lady say I looked like David Archuletta, especially when i was younger.




But the most common one mentioned for me is Sean Astin.

18. When I went to university in Halifax, Nova Scotia. People kept telling me I looked like
someone they knew. Makes sense because that was where 3/4 of my ancestors were from. Their was apparently a twin of mine in Cape Breton.

29. When I was in college some 35 years ago I, too, was told I looked like John Lennon.
It happened many times and I was usually told by strangers. It most likely was a general resemblance due to my round glasses and longer, brown hair. Maybe the eyes, but no way the nose.

49. When I was in college & still had freckles
it was Peggy Lipton. Later in life, it's been Farrah Fawcett during the 70's & 80's when I wore darker eyeliner/shadow, then Kim Basinger in the 90's.
