You know, you see somebody and you think "you remind me of somebody." Or "you look just like so and so." But when you really think about it, you haven't a clue of who they remind you of, or they really don't look much at all like so and so. How many times has that happened to you where they really did look like somebody and you knew who that person was? Or was your mind just playing tricks on you?

I find this question interesting and funny. First, many times people remind me of other people I know, and even my husband will agree, like, doesn't ___ remind you of ____? We agree totally, BUT what's terrible if soemone reminds you of someone you or they may not care for or may be quite unattractive or something. For example, a checker at my local grocery store looks like Penelope Cruz, I told her that and she got upset and said "I hate her". So I felt stupid! I just recently met someone who looks so much like my father when he was young, BUT you cannot say to a 26 yr old "you look like my dad". You know? Many people remind me of someone, I just wonder if it goes with the whole "10 types of people" thing.

Over on Yuwie they have this Celebrity Look Alike Contest on weekends and one week I was the guest of honor. The two people they thought I looked like were Helen Hunt and Amy Poehler. For some reason I just don't like Helen Hunt, so I get where she was coming from!

Oh this is too funny. My husband will see someone on TV who reminds him of a celeb and say "Lokk there's so and so's brother" or "there's so and soa cousin". Funny part is he is ALWAYS right! It really makes me laugh. Just tonight there was a commercial on(I ignore all commercials)and he says to me "Look there's Tom Hanks cousin" Well I looked up and yep the guy could have been Tom's cousin. It was too funny.

Good eye. I was at the 2002 National Skating Championships and there was this girl in Juniors I could swear was related to Sarah Hughes. Turned out it was her sister Emily!

I agree. I think that I see similar looking people everyday. Very often I want to stop people and ask if I know them from somewhere.... There are people with similar face characteristics, eye color and hair. I made so many mistakes so far....I have better not ask anyone "do I know you", because last time I ask famous person "do I know you?" and feel embarrassed about. The point is, he looks just like my friend from high school, I didn't even know that he is famous...(from TV serial...but I don't watch TV...lol)

My husband and I do this all the time. And the funny thing is, there are two or three people that they always remind us of. Mike, Dave or Kelly. The weird times though are when the person doesn't necessarily LOOK like someone but has a mannerism like them or their mouth moves in the same way or something else. My husband sees the strangest likenesses sometimes. I'm like......HUH?

Yeah sometimes it's the mannerism and then it's really hard to figure out who it is!
