Do you look like a celebrity?

Do you resemble a celebrity? Do you think you look like someone, or do other people see a likeness that you don't see at all?

A million years ago when I worked in a doctor's office, some of the patients thought I looked like Ali McGraw. I never saw that. The only thing we had in common was long dark hair and dark eyes. I was never that thin, my hair was never straight, and most magazine covers had her looking somber which has never been my natural expression.
Years later, with short hair, I was told by a few that I looked like Stockard Channing as she looked in the movie Grease. I didn't see that then, but maybe a few decades later I could see a bit of a resemblance. Not enough that I could fake her I.D. but I would be too chicken to do that anyway. Mom always said I did not have a poker face. A sightless person would know I was lying if I claimed to be anyone other than who I am!
This picture is a few months old, taken with my laptop's camera.
Recently at the library, the desk clerk insisted I look just like Ina Garten. My hair is the right length (a little longer than the photo above) and we both have pudgy faces. I'd never be confused with her by my actions in the kitchen. She isn't one of my favorite Food Network hosts, in fact, I really don't care for her show at all.
Hopefully these are all lovely ladies and if they are lucky, their personal lives might be almost as warm and loving as mine.

And for the record, the camera in my laptop is a little out of focus. The person I really look like, even before getting out of bed and combing my hair or brushing my teeth is this person.
Delusionally yours,

I can see your resemblance to the first 3 ladies in the nose and mouth. But you are certainly a dead ringer for Catherine!! ;-)

Yes, you do look those ladies!

When I was younger I was often compared to Olivia Newton-John...I wish it still held true...

Oh my gosh I LOVED that - you brightened my day.

I look like a young Elizabeth Taylor myself - with those fiery purple eyes and ample girls! lol

Ah, too bad we age.


You do look like those women - and you are beautiful!

I've been mistaken for only one celebrity in my lifetime, and that was Lassie. :) But she has much prettier hair.
