I get told Farrah Fawcett. Don’t you see it? A few times Judy Collins, because of the eyes. One I’ve always gotten because of the eyes, for so long, is Gene Wilder. I know that sounds weird. I’m going to tell him that when I meet him.
From Mission Valley (Waiter)
Maybe two months ago at work, someone said I looked like Steven Seagal. I don’t know if it was just because of the hair or what, because I don’t think I really look like him. When I was growing up, I heard Jason Bateman a lot. I think when people are told they look like someone, a lot depends on what shows are popular or what hairstyles people have.
From Hillcrest (Server)
Someone just said Katie Holmes, but I’ve never heard that before. If I’m told that I look like someone, it’s usually Mandy Moore or Britney Spears. And it will be really random places that I hear it. Sometimes I’m at work, other times I’m out and about, and a person will just walk up and say, “You know, you look like Mandy Moore.”
From Kensington (Marketing)
I was told I looked like Janeane Garofalo once. That was about ten years ago. It was a guy I worked with. Maybe he meant because of my personality. I hope that is what he meant. I haven’t heard it again since that one time.
From Ramona (Teacher)
I get told I look like Jason, from the Friday the 13th movies. I probably don’t look like the actor when he isn’t wearing the hockey mask to kill people. Oh, and Hannibal “the Cannibal” Lecter. But I only get told I look like those two people when I put tortillas on my face.
From North County (Self-employed)
Isn’t it obvious who I get told I look like? Charlie Chaplin. Not everyone with the short mustache looks like him. Some would look like Hitler, but a few people actually had that mustache. Sometimes I’m told I look like Dustin Diamond. I think that’s his name. You know, the one that played Screech.
