Celebrity Lookalikes

Did anyone ever tell you that you looked like a celebrity or reminded them of someone else? When I was in high school, there was a waitress in a downtown Miami restaurant that always called me Barbara and swore that I went to her high school. But I've never been accused of looking like any celebrity. How about you?

I went to school with my doppleganger. It was our first year in high school and we had both transferred in from feeder schools so people had a hard time telling us apart. In fact, it took most of the first year before most people even realized we were two different people. Even though we weren't related, we did discover later that her mother was in my aunt's class in the same high school some 35 years earlier.

What a coincidence. That must have felt weird.

It was more annoying than weird, although I did learn to respond when people yelled, "Debby!" As to celebrities, my oldest brother could be James Garner's (Maverick, Rockford Files) twin, except my brother has red hair. And one of my granddaughter's looks like the Olsen twins from full house.

First, who's Barbra? And some people have told me I look like Keanu Reeves, but I disagree, plus I really don't think he's that good of an actor maybe thats why I don't want to be associated with him lol!

Barbara was just a girl at another high school in Miami, no one famous. I think Keanu is quite good looking, but I agree with you about his acting.

Not me although in the past I have been told that I do look like someone's aunt, cousin twice removed or whatever but never any celebrities. Let me assure you though, if anyone did say I looked like anyone famous I would take them straight to the optometrist to have their eyes checked and if they were alright, then they would be marched off to the nearest psychiatric hospital because that is where they should be. LOL

Ossie, once again you've given me my laugh for the day. I'm the same way. I sure don't look like anyone famous and anyone who thought I did should have their eyes and head checked.

I've never been told I was a look a like but my brother heard it quite a bit when he was younger. He was often told he looked like John Travolta. Of course this was back during the late 70's when Travolta was first well known now the resemblance isn't as strong. My dad on the other hand looked a great deal like Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendys. So much so that my niece when she was little when she first went asked, very loudly I might add, "Why is grandpa's picture up there?" You know we got very good service that day. That and the one commercial he did were he stated "If I have to pull over this car.." The first time I heard it I was looking around wondering where my father was. It was creepy.

Loved your story. Maybe it was YOUR FATHER that I saw one day and thought it was Dave Thomas. The man said he wasn't, so I'll just presume it was your dad...LOL. Thanks so much for responding.

Me at 17 - This is what I looked like when Titanic came out and I got compared to Kate Winslet all the time
I've had people tell me three different (three very different people) all the time - Kate Winslet (especially when I had my hair permed - after Titanic came out I heard it at least twice a day), Christina Ricci (I think it's the eyes... when I was seventeen this group of kids called me Wednesday (as in the Addams family) all the time), and Claire Danes. This picture is me when Titanic came out.

Someone told me last year that I do look like Angel Locsin. I don't personally think I am:( yay! But it's a compliment since Angel is hot and one of the prettiest actress in the Philippines. Here is her picture lol! Far from my looks lol.
