Who have you been told you look like?

From Oceanside (Video Game Designer)
I used to hear Dan Aykroyd when I was younger. Now that I’m bald, I hear Billy Joel a lot. When we went to see him in concert at the Pond in Anaheim, I had a lot of people coming up to me and telling me that. And they always say it like it’s a compliment. But I don’t find him particularly good looking.
From San Diego (Musician)
After every gig, I hear I look like Tony Iommi, the guitarist for Black Sabbath. I’m in a Sabbath tribute band, so I’m going for that look. I also hear I look like Frank Zappa a lot because of this goatee. Usually it’s drummers that tell me that. If I didn’t have the goatee, I’m guessing I’d never hear that comparison.
From Carlsbad (Accountant)
I often get told I look like Scott Ian of Anthrax, even though my goatee isn’t nearly as long as his. In fact, I get told I look like a lot of bass players from heavy-metal bands. Someone will sometimes come up and not even be sure which band. They’ll just say, “You look like a bass player.” I ask them which bassist, and they’ll say, “I don’t know. All of them.” I’m not sure, but maybe a lot of bass players are bald.
From Clairemont (Entrepreneur)
Well, you just told me I looked like Courtney Cox. I don’t usually hear that. I’ve heard Sandra Bullock, which I don’t see. She has brown eyes. I used to get Jennifer…oh, what’s her name…Jennifer Connelly. I got that one often. I’m lucky because those are attractive women. Sometimes when people say you look like someone else it’s not a good thing.
From Rancho Mission (Caregiver)
I used to get told Barbra Streisand a lot. Over the years, I’ve probably heard that about 20 times. It doesn’t bother me. Her and Cher are my idols, so it was always nice to hear.
From Leucadia (Charter Pilot)
I get told every now and then that I look like Michael J. Fox. That’s when I shave my face. And, I don’t think they really mean that I look like Michael J. Fox as much as they think I look like [his character in] Teen Wolf. You probably can’t see it now, but it’s the one celebrity I hear.
