Do you look like anyone famous?

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.

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.

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.

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.
