Do people without cataracts say you look like someone famous? I get Prince William once in awhile. And no, not posting a pic because I don't see it anyway. Just curious what comparisons people on DL get.
The Grumpy Cat.
When we both were younger, I'd get Tom Hanks occasionally.
I was not amused.
I can't believe I finally have the opportunity to say this, and with total accuracy:
Julieanne Moore. Seriously.
Kevin Spacey. It's tough because I'm constantly getting drinks thrown in my face by wronged twinks. But then one or two of them let me fuck them for a role.
LOL! Me too. Though I've gotten Tom Brady and Dave Mathews when wearing a baseball cap. I try to wear a cap as often as possible.
Louis Theroux. No, not a compliment, but at least we're both tall.
Twenty years ago, I'd get Matthew Broderick, Jack Wagner and Tom Cruise -- none of whom look remotely like each other (or like me). However, I do have one of those faces that still make people I've just met say, "you look really familiar to me."
My condolences on the Prince William comparisons, OP. I'm sure you're much cuter than that.
R1 sounds adorable.
Over the years I've gotten John Tesh, Jude Law (this was after Tesh!) and, just yesterday, Woody Harrelson. I, like all the others, don't see it.
Come on r6 There's a lot worse than Louis Theroux. You should take it as a compliment, he's cute, even if cousin Justin is cuter.
When I was younger, the Dell dude.
Now that I'm old, Meg Gibson. I must be getting jowly.
In the 80s, I would get several people telling me I looked like Richard Chamberlain (Shogun/Thornbirds era). Current day, I have had more than one tell me that I look like Ed Helms. I could not see it…either in comparison to me, or in comparison to each other
I still hear "you look like Matthew Broderick" from time to time. Twice people have come up to me convinced that I was him. The first time I heard this was around when Ferris Bueller came out.
My reaction to this is: could be better, could be worse.
The Reeve(s) boys, Christopher & Keanu.
I've gotten a few comparisons to George Clooney. Most likely due to my graying hair.
I generally get either Philip Seymour Hoffman or Naomi Campbell.
If only Robert DeNiro thought so.
20 years ago I got Nicolas Cage quite a bit. I dare say I've aged better than he has, so that's ancient history.
Dorian Gray's portrait aged better than Nicolas Cage.
I've gotten a young Robert Redford more than once, also Val Kilmer. Like the others, I don't see it.
I look like a hybrid of Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Cillian Murphy.
One hopes it is not the current Val Kilmer, who was separated in middle age from Sally Struthers.
Brad Pitt with a shaved head. Or Ed Norton from American History X.
Jim J. Bullock
I got that a lot back in the 80's. Of course, since he was a flamer, I was not amused.
When I was younger in Mexico for spring break Mexicans actually thought I was Gloria estephan. 20 years later I get Sandy Bullock all the time.
On a good day Matthew Macfadyen. On a bad day Jim Parsons.
When I was sporting a spiky hairdo, two chicks said I look like Robert Pattinson. But trust me, I look nothing like him. It's just funny how much difference a new hairdo makes (I usually have longer hair).
In my 20's with longer hair and black glasses: Michael Caine. (Yes, I saw the resemblance).
In my 30's with shorter hair and contacts: Emilio Estevez. (Yes, I saw the resemblance.)
In my 50's with curly hair and back to glasses: Woody Allen. (Just shoot me now.)
Neil Patrick Harris on a good day.
A young Bill Murray on a bad day.
I get Liza Minnelli, ever since I was a little kid.
A lot of the time, when younger and thinner (other than in her fat phases), people would say Elizabeth Taylor. NOT bragging. At 25-35, I looked like her at 55+! Shape of eye, face, , mouth; around the same height, inclined to plump/fat; NOT same color eyes. And again: big deal; compared to her when I was 20+year than what she looked like at the time.
( I still miss her!: HER, not the comparisons.)
(Snarky people have compared me, weight-wise:Kathy Bates, Roseanne.) Eeeek.
A Colombian actor by the name of Manolo Cardona; in this pic, we're the spitting image of each other. (I posted it on facebook and people thought it WAS me.)
R32, are you a man or a woman?
R35, are you a man or a woman?
R32, are you R35?
I've posted this before (the subject has been discussed before, surprise!).
When I was younger, I got Johnny Mathis (I'm Hispanic), but I did not age like him (no facelifts and hair pieces here). As the temples got grayer and the top hair thinner, I became a fit Cheech Marin (I'm taller and in decent shape).
I remember people posted pictures of both and agreed it seemed a plausible transition.
r32 are you a man?
Me too, R17!
I've been told that I look like Freddie Prinze Jr.
Drew Carey. I get this fairly often because I have close-cropped blond hair and similar glasses. Facially, though, we are very dissimilar.
I am often mistaken for Brian Peppers.
DL former flame Gale Harold
r32, are you a human?
Multiple people have told me I remind them of Jennifer Lawrence.I'm not as tall, though (she's 5'9").
Alanis Morrissette, Irene Jacob, Fanny Ardant and Whoopi Goldberg. I didn't see it for Whoopi Goldberg and complained to a friend who instantly beamed: "Of course! It's so obvious! I see it!"
My girlfriend is a dead ringer for Sandra Bullock (and has German ancestry too).
A taller version of Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode.
yes, the relentless, music loving prince henri of engand. He crashed at my aspen home, elan, and isn't able to speak. was he a politicl sacrifice or ever real or everreal?
Did his parachute open and why is the relationship beteen myself and english "tantes"
so shaky after alifetime of affiliation via rck and rl and a solid 8 years test8ing in life.
where did the perfect wardrobe and "girl" go ?
new york city and far from...Ill do it all american thanks.
georgi stairway and stairway and something isnt right about the stagnant water in central park and at the sheraton.
g lynn jones ny city plant's urchin is walking.
I must because thousands of persons in the crowds seem to know me and there is mention of others.
This thread is useless without comparison pics.
John McEnroe in the early 90s and Til Schweiger in the late 90s when I was in Germany and he was huge there. Got a whole Mädchen class running after me in Francfort and then realizing I was the wrong guy. Let me tell you that I was not happy about the McEnroe comparison, but I'll live with the Til Schweiger one: I always thought he was hot, esp. back then.
Jude Law, Sting and Chris Botti and I'm not even a blond! Must be the cheekbones and green eyes?!
Agreed R51, this is becoming a very boring thread.
I've been told that I resemble an old fetid douche bag used by Marilyn Monroe.
Then: Brian Boitano, which didn't bother me.
Now: Jon Cryer, which really bothers me.
Younger: Scott Baio
Now: Kramer, without the crazy hair...shoot me.
When I have my sunglasses on, I get followed, I can hear them say things like, " Are you SURE it's ...HIM?" or "Some of them don't want to be asked for their autograph." It happened again yesterday. I got "noticed" by someone, and man, the grin on the person's face! It's like they were seeing the second coming of Jesus. WTF?
I'm not kidding! The thing is, I don't really go to the movies much, and hate television. I have no idea who they think I am!!
I will try and post a pic. Maybe one of you can tell me just which celeb they believe me to be.
R9, people will say a 'cuter' version of Wills, though a lot of girls really seem to like his looks. Gay guys, apparently, not so much:(
I also get Ethan Embry.
We get it OP, you're balding prematurely but young/boyish/pretty-faced enough for it to look cute.
When I was younger, I got Billy Campbell a couple of times. Some kid asked me if I was The Rocketeer one time.
My weight has gone up and down over the years. When im thinner, I get Robert Downey Jr. I had a lady freak out one time thinking i was him. I don't see it at all.
When I'm heavier, I get "a cuter, thinner" Nathan Lane. Thankfully, haven't heard that one in a while!
Sadly, Elton John, and now in our later years, Elton Brown.
In her heyday, Linda Evans.
Whitney Houston. Twice.
She's dead! ^^
The lead singer for Glass Tiger, back in the day. I think it was just the crazy-eyes, though.
I regularly get told I look like Eric Bana, but only in Chopper!
Simon Cowell could be my twin.
In my club years: Eydie Gorme.
People used to tell me I looked like Kirsten Dunst all the time when I was younger.
On separate occasions I have been told that I look like Jodie Foster and Michelle Pfeiffer (I wish)
Freddie Prinze Jr.
I'm not sure if that's a compliment anymore....10-15 years ago...sure.
That's funny...so do I!
I used to have white blond dyed hair long and straight and I was compared to every actress/celeb who had the same hair. Gwyneth, Lisa Kudrow, Daryl Hannah, Howard Stern's wife, Heather Locklear, one of those Girl Next Door playmates, and someone mistook me for Ann Coulter ten years ago at a restaurant. He refused to believe I wasn't her. It was horrifying. Since going back to my light brown hair nobody ever thinks I look like anyone. I also gained 40 pounds which made a huge difference in my looks.
When I was younger, Freddie Prinze Sr.
Now, Jack Albertson.
Natasha Bedingfield and Kristen Bell.
"I've been told I bear a striking resemblance to Miss Cheryl Ladd although my bosoms are perkier."
I get Amy Poehler a lot, though I have dark reddish brown hair, not blonde.
Lots of fat beauty queens in DL.
I used to get told I looked like this guy. But, that was a LONG LONG time ago, of course.
I usually get a thin Jack Black, Emile Hirsch, Zac Efron, Leo DiCaprio, and Matt Damon. When my hair was different, I got Robert Pattinson a lot. I got Tom Cruise once.
It's weird. I can kinda see where Jack Black and Leo could make an Emile, but the other ones seem different to me.
I always get told I look like a young Tom Cruise, but taller. I hate it
I look like Edward Snowden (sans neck mole). Plans to visit the land of the free are on hold.
r113: Not even if you were hanging upside down on a trapeze!
I've been told I am a dead ringer for the late comedian Jack E. Leonard.I'm flattered.
I have gotten Pat Benatar, Deborah Gibson, and Carly Simon.
They are just telling you this because you have a fat, wide mouth like this bitch:
"and someone mistook me for Ann Coulter ten years ago at a restaurant. He refused to believe I wasn't her. It was horrifying"
LOL! You should have played along and called him an evil pinko commie or whatever
People used to tell me I looked like Liza Minnelli so I had my nose fixed.
"Younger" Harvey Fierstein (or more commonly, "the brother from Mrs. Doubtfire!").
What's sadder? They are right. I don't have the voice, but I see it every time I look in a mirror.
In my 20's, I dyed my hair blond to make myself look lots different. I just looked like Harvey Fierstein getting ready for a role where he dyes his hair blond.
Yes, remember Gabby Hayes from the old westerns? I'm not shitting.
I look like Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork or Mickey Dolenz, but no one remembers which.
Not famous, but there is an extra in JURASSIC PARK: THE LOST WORLD who looks like he could be a twin of mine. It freaked me out when I watched it.
Timothy Dalton, back in the day.
Well, at least ahhhh ... (thick Southern accent) don't look like Fess Parkera, R79/R120! But what do you say we go out for a drink at the Rusty Anchor, Dorothy?
Natalie Cole. Wish the talent was there for me.
Some Arab guy was convinced I was in porn. He was talking about straight porn so it wasn't exactly a compliment.
[quote]Come on [R6] There's a lot worse than Louis Theroux. You should take it as a compliment, he's cute, even if cousin Justin is cuter.
Louis Theroux is indeed cute. And with a nice way about him. I'd take it as a compliment too.
[quote]Not famous, but there is an extra in JURASSIC PARK: THE LOST WORLD who looks like he could be a twin of mine. It freaked me out when I watched it.
You looked like one of the raptors?
Have been told I look like Ben Affleck but I don't see it.
I've been told I look like Owen Wilson. I can see it.
When I was younger and wore my hair short, I was told I looked like David Bowie.
I got Renee Zellweger one day while waiting for my latte. I was horrified. My mouth is not pursed like hers nor are my eyes squinty but I had sunglasses on. The lady said she thought Renee was so beautiful. I thought the woman was nuts.
Cross between Walter Brennan, Broderick Crawford, Nikita Khrushchev, Alfred Hitchcock, Rodney Dangerfield and Andy Devine.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg's daughter, Jane
Alyssa Milano and Marisa Tomei, with a few more pounds.
In the early eighties people would tell me that I looked like Jodie Foster. And yes I am.
R146 - Really? Do you still look like her?
R147 I never thought I looked like her. And no...that was many years ago. I certainly wish.
I've been told multiple times, especially when I was in the UK, that I'm the splitting image of George Best. Had to google the guy, but I fully agree.
Also, a friend once sent me a link to an amateur porn scene (straight) asking if it was me, lol! Admit the dude in question really really looked like me, to the point of holy shit it is, but fortunately I'm not inked (or straight), so I could prove it wasn't me after all. Still managed to rub one out. He was a great fucker, haha
Jim Morrison... in his later years
When I was younger and the movie going public knew who Michael J Pollard, it was often said I looked like him.
Rob Lowe...I am beginning to hate Rob Lowe.
20 years ago while standing at a bar(of course) a man my age came very close to me to look at my face.
He immediately realized he had startled me and by saying, "I'm so sorry. I actually thought you were Meg Tilly."
