Who do you resemble?

post #1 of 24

Apparently I look/sound like Janis Joplin. A while ago I recorded myself "singing" cat haikus which strongly featured the word "butt". My brother got a hold of the songs, laughed, and said I sounded like Janis Joplin. Cool. At least I don't act like her.

Anyway what famous person have you been told you resembled?

This is a fun topic.

I've been told I resemble Marissa Tomei on several occasions by different people.

I see it in my mannerisms I guess.

I was told i looked like Kate Winslet (althought i highly doubt it, as she is very beautiful) when i posted a picture on another forum, had my hair done and makeup. Although i don't think i look like anyone famous, i was flattered as i admire her.

I recently posted a picture in one of my graphic groups and was told by someone that I look like "Deanna Durban"

So far as who I sound like when I'm singing? It depends on what song I'm singing. I've been told I sound like "Annie Lennox", at other times I've been told I sound like "Anne Murray", and at other times I've been told I sound like "Enya" or "Alannah Myles"

I've taped myself singing along to various songs, and personally I don't think I can sing, at least if I heard me on the radio I'd turn to another station.

My mother-in-law says I look and act like "Judging Amy`s" mother. I can see it a bit (looks) but more in her personality.
She`s prettier though....but I`m sweeter!!!!...

When I was younger people told me all the time that I looked like Christina Ricci. I even had a little girl come up to me and ask if I was her. LOL

I've been told since I was 5 that I look like the little girl from Problem Child 2... Trixie... hence my nickname. I have also been told that I look like 2 different soap stars, yet I cant remember their names???

Apparently, I look like Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'm not as big as him but my facial features are similar to his. And I can do a perfect impersonation of him.

But Dorothy was beautiful! That's a lovely compliment!

When I was younger and slimmer, I looked a little bit like Diana Rigg from "The Avengers," and boy did I love that! She was my heroine from age 10 to 13 or so. (And I still have a huge crush on Patrick MacNee!)

Moz, you lucky girl, I sure wish I could sing like Janis Joplin! I can come a lot closer to it now than when I was younger, though... scar tissue from pneumonia gave me some of the same effect she got from Jack Daniels and Johnny Walker.

I can also do a pretty good Carly Simon... and one of the speaking voices I used to do when I was in radio was Kathleen Turner. Now there's a voice that'll get you anything you want on the phone! Unfortunately, I don't have the wherewithal to follow it up in person...

Melissa Gilbert

I used to hear it ALL the time when I was a kid (and Little House on the Prarie was on the air). I don't hear it much anymore, but I've got a few pounds on Melissa these days.

The only time I was accused of looking like someone was while I was in an airport waiting for a connection flight. We'd been up all night long, I had no makeup on, and was tired as can be.

Someone walked up to me and said "Amy?". I answered "yes?". They replied "Amy Carter?". I said sorry, wrong Amy. They didn't believe me and demanded that I give them my autograph, then started to harrass me when I declined.

The only good thing about the episode was that Amy Carter is a LOT younger than I am. So I guess at my worst, I look like Amy Carter.
