Ya Know Who You Look Like?

Good Morning Everyone! It's pretty early over here in the Bird's Nest, but as usual, I can't sleep. I woke up, got dressed, threw in a load of laundry, made a loaf of banana bread and a pot of coffee, then decided to get a jump start on my Monday morning blog post. Forecast is calling for another wicked hot one today, 92 degrees plus- and tons of humidity. Oy! That doesn't inspire me to do anything outdoorsy, unless I want my kids and I to melt again. What are you all up to today?

SO-every once and awhile, someone will stare at me funny, and say, "You know who you look  like?" I find it interesting, if not a bit disturbing, the #1 person most people say I resemble is:

"You look like the killer from the Saw movie!!"
Awesome. When the first person told me this, everyone else around us started laughing and saying, "Oh My God, Jen, you totally do!".  Now, most of you know, I don't watch scary movies, so I didn't even know the killer was a woman. At least the "he" I thought they were comparing me to, turns out to be a "she".  So, I've got that going for me. And in the pictures I've seen of the actress, I can actually see the resemblance.... (big mouth, giant forehead, ginormous lips, gobs of smeared black liquid eyeliner..yeah, I can see it)

Honestly, nine out of ten people say I look like the killer Saw chick,  Shawnee Smith. And when she isn't covered in blood and gore, she's pretty cute, so I've resigned myself to it. Every RARE once and a while, someone will say I look like  Jennifer Garner. I'd  like to think I look like Elektra,  cause she's pretty bad ass. HOWEVER, she's married to that asshat Ben Afflack, who I can't stand. So, that kind of blows.

BUT I'd much rather have people  mistake me for Charlize Theron.  (NOT from the movie Monster!)
Now I'm curious: What celebrities/actors do people most often say YOU look like? Who do you think you look like, AND/OR who would you want to look like, if you could choose?

  1. Haha, I don't look like anyone, but if someone said I looked like that girl out of Saw, I'd be thrilled! :D

    1. I'm much happier not that I know the killer is actually a girl! LOL

  2. I don't think you look like the Saw chick.
    Ryan Reynolds! Hey, we both have two arms, two legs, and a head, right?

    1. Honestly, as much as it pains me to admit this, in that picture above, I look EXACTLY like her!! LOL

      Ryan Reynolds is great. I loved him in The Proposal! :)

  3. People tell me I look like Jimmy Fallon. I've been told this about 4 times now.

    It's not great, but I guess it could be worse. At least people don't tell me I look like Steve Buscemi, right?

    1. Jimmy Fallon, really? At least he's cute, talented and really funny, so I'd take that over Buscemi's psycho bug eyes any day. LOL

  4. I think both Shawnee Smith and Jennifer Garner are hot, so by extension you must be hot too.

    At high school I was often told I looked like Nancy from the Craft, nowadays I'm not sure I look like anyone.

    1. Aw-thank you Clare. I'm not sure who Nancy is, but I hope you liked the comparison! I'm OK with people saying I look like "the killer from Saw" now, because at least, I know it is a SHE and not a HE, like I first thought. LOL

  5. That's funny! From pictures you've posted, you really do look like that girl! (I've never seen the movie.)
    I've had people tell me I look like Katie Holmes (a lot) and I really, really don't. It's flattering, but yeah, I don't. I've also been told I look like Rachel Leigh Cook. That one I can see a bit more.

    1. OK, from your profile pic, and your sweet dimples, I can see the Katie Holmes resemblance/comparisions! At least she is super cute. And single ready to mingle now... (LOL) Rachel Leigh Cook, also adorable and super cute. Both of those comps are great!

  6. You totally look like that Saw girl based on pictures you've posted. Back in the day of Dark Angel people told me I looked liked Jessica Alba. I wish.

    1. Dark Angel, oh, how I lurrrved that show! I would be stoked if anyone compared me to Jessica Alba's pinky toe, she's so gorgeous! I'd RUN with it. Good for you, I really like that celeb comparison!

  7. Wow, from your profile pic, you do look like her! That's awesome!

    I've never been mistaken for anyone famous. Way too many freckles, maybe.

    1. Thanks Christine! Yeah, I've resigned myself to it... Maybe I could go as the killer from Saw for Halloween? LOL

  8. That picture is hilarious J. I've been told I look like Whoopi. Sigh... I like the comparison to the Williams sisters better :D

    1. Thanks Victoria! I can see a the resemblance with the Williams sisters, especially Venus. I think they are both beautiful. Whoopie?? No way. You are far too young!

  9. See, I think I look like Charlize. Or Gwyneth. (It is a wonder how much better I look in the mirror when I keep the bathroom lights on low.) But people tell me I look like Helen Hunt (remember her from "Mad About You"?), who is about 10 years older than I am. Thanks for that, people.

    Great post!

    best,
    MOV

    1. HEY MOV- Helen Hunt is pretty- she was awesome in Twister. But I hate that she is ten years older than you! I bet you do look much more like Gwyneth and Charlize :)

      Thanks for commenting!

  10. Hee! From your pics and the pic you posted, you do kind-of look like that girl!

    When I was still a teen and "What Dreams May Come" came out, I got a lot of "you look a lot like a younger version of the dead wife" (Annabella Sciorra) Thanks for that, people.

    I've also gotten Famke Janssen (Jean Grey from the X-Men movies) and since she and I both have fine, wavy hair and similar facial features, I've copied a lot of her hairstyles (hollywood hair artistry on a budget!!!) I won't complain about being a younger version of her!

  11. OK, you know how I feel about Dr. Jean Grey? She's hot enough for WOLVERINE, so girl, you got it going ON!!!!

  12. Hate to tell you but I do see the resemblance in your pics.

    Funny, no one has ever told me that I look like someone famous or not. I guess that's a good thing, right? For the rest of the world, at least.

  13. Hi Faraway! Be glad you look like you, and no one else, you're an ORIGINAL. Even I have to admit, I look a lot like the killer from the Saw movies, but it's ok. I've kind of resigned myself to it now. At least she's not a porn star. Ha!
