When I was in college in 1973, I met a boy who told me I looked like Karen Carpenter. This was a big thrill to me at the time because I really liked her. She and I both wore our hair alike at the time, in a gypsy shag, if you remember those. It was such a coincidence because I was majoring in music and hoping to be a professional singer someday. The boy who told me this and I started dating from that day on. Our song was "Top Of The World", by the way. Has anyever told you you look like somebody famous?

I think once I was told like I seem to be like a Bollywood actor, but I didn't care it. Because I didn't believe it. Only with this thread, I knew a new thing. My mental image was wrong hehe...Never saw you, not mentioned, I thought you were a man lol...And now I got it corrected. Don't mind hehe... Happy mylotting...

Don't feel bad because I thought one of my mylot friends was a girl but it turned out he as a boy. Another one of my mylot friends thought I was a man because I use the username "cyrus123". She said her husband's first name was "Cyrus". I guess it happens all the time on mylot. Kathy (this is a female name, btw).

No ones ever told me that I look like anyone famous, but I've had a few people tell me that my husband looks like somebody famous. My mom told me that he looks like Troy Donahue, an ex co-worker of mine told me he looks like Mel Gibson and an online friend told me he looks like Jude Law. My husband has also been told that he looks like Ryan Seacrest. Though neither of us see it. LOL

Oh, he is! Ryan Seacrest is the host for American Idol. As far as Jude Law goes, I never heard of him either until I was told that my husband looks like him, so I had to look him up and see it for myself! LOL Here is a link about him: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000179/ Don't tell any of them, but I personally think my husband's better looking!

Hi Cyrus123, I am a chinese, so i don't think you will know much about the famous star in my country. I guess you know Jacky Chan, Bruce Lee, but i am a girl, people said that i look like one of the famous actor in my country. I like that.lol...The funny things is, one of my Philippine friend told me that i even looks like one of the star from their country.

It's great to hear people say you look like some celebrity, but no one has told me so. As the matter of fact, I don't like to hear that I look like such and such famous person, on the contrary, I want to be that famous personality.

I don't blame you. I always wanted to be somebody famous, myself. I always wanted to be a professional singer. It's hard to get a break in the music business, though. I still sing all the time but I sing at a local nursing home and an assisted living facility once a month. I think this is more pleasing to the Lord. Kathy.

If it's true that you look like Clint Eastwood, I bet you are a good looking man! I'd like to see you, lol. I don't know who Setiwan Jody is. But then, I'm not from your country. Clint Eastood is a good actor. I watch a lot of westerns and I've seen him in a lot of westerns. I remember when he was on "Rawhide" back in the '60s. I guess I'm giving away my age when I say I remember Rawhide, lol. I also liked him in "Escape From Alcatraz". Kathy.

Hahaha thanks, Only I wish Mr.Client EastWood doesnt mind ...Escape from Alcatraz was my favourite film, and Pale Rider, almost all movie where Client Eastwood was the actor I will never pass it unfortunately I did not remember their Titles, and I was admiring him at sherif/ cow boy or military costumes, if I were woman I will give all I have to him, all free of charges haha (lol). Setiawan Jody is Indonesian tycoon who own oil company even at eastern Europe. So, pretending I were Clint Esatwood now, do you mind, I want to kiss you right now ...

No, no one ever did but when I was having english courses 5 years ago there was someone my teacher always called "Keanu Reeves". He wasn't THAT identical to him but it kinda stuck to all of us and everyone called him Keanu later, so remember looking like someone famous isn't always a good thing...

I guess this is true, especially if you didn't like the person that much. Also, it's true if you didn't think the famous person was that good looking or pretty. Thank you for responding and happy mylotting. Kathy.

yes, a couple of times already. however, i'm too shy to mention their names here. it's a form of flattery for me. we all really have resemblances to othe rpeople and i don't think it's a bad thing. we are all unique and just because you look like someone else (famous or not) doesn't make you less special. have a great day, people! :)

Yes, I think we all look like somebody. No, it's not a bad thing at all. I think it depends on who the person is comparing me with, though. If this person is pretty but I don't like the way she acts, I probably wouldn't want to look like her. I'm sure you've heard that saying, pretty is pretty does. I guess it's all right as long as I don't act like her, lolKathy.

Haha I've been told that at times I looked like Sandara Park, a local actress here in the Philippines and some other local celebs. When they comment whether they think it's true or it's really not i'd just say thank you

This is a cute response!lolDo you really want to be a celebity someday? I always wanted to be a professional singer and I was really planning on doing it. It didn't work out, though. It's hard to get a break in the music business. I didn't give up, though. I still sing at different places all the time. I hope you do get to be a first rank celebrity and I'll get to see you on television someday. I'll tell everybody I used to communicate with you on mylot. Kathy.

When I was younger, maybe 7 or 8 years old, I was told by a woman that I looked like Audrey Hepburn. I don't think I did but I went with it. I thought it was pretty neat that she thought I looked like an actress.

I always thought Audrey Hepburn was pretty, myself, and she was a good actress. She was good in "My Fair Lady". I noticed your username is cowgirl26. Are you a cowgirl by any chance? I ride horses a lot, myself, and I was raised around horses. Thank you for responding and happy mylotting. Kathy.

It sounds like you look like a lot of people, lol. I don't know if I would recognize these people you mentioned or not. Of course, that doesn't mean they're not famous. I might have seen Devon Aoi. I just didn't know her name. As far as Michelle or Dragon, I wouldn't know them because I don't keep up with golf or poker. Kathy.
