Has anyone ever told you that you look just like......
People tell me I look like famous people ALL THE TIME. I swear. It is really very strange. I guess I should be flattered, but for the most part I am not. I must have a familiar look to people. The 2 people I am told I look most like just happen to both be on the cover of W Magazine this month. I have ALWAYS been told I resemble Meryl Streep, and in the past couple of years people have been telling me I resemble La Lohan--NOT skinny crackhead blonde (with this OOMPAH LOOMPAH self tanner in the picture -YIKES) La Lohan. No, I look more like the robust red headed La Lohan. I gotta say Meryl looks STUNNING on this cover...so much lovlier than La Lohan.
I am also told a lot that I look like Giada di Laurentiis. I am told this more and more as she becomes more well known. My whole family says I look just like her. This is a total compliment to me because I think she is cute as a button!
Jo Dee Messina (country music singer) is another redhead I am told I look just like. One time a person in the country music industry who had worked with Jo Dee before walked right up to me and started talking to me because she thought I WAS Jo Dee Messina...that was funny.
One evening a drunk, homeless man in downtown Chicago kept calling me Madonna. He was like "Madonna, I know that is you YOU BITCH!. My Cousin Lenny stays on the sidewalk over at the United Center and we know you had a show there tonight. Do not even lie Madonna." I was all "Sir, I am not Madonna." Then he was all "Bitch you know you the Material Bitch, quit playing like you aint. "He was saying how there could not be 2 women on the planet who looked like Madonna so he knew I was her because I looked just like her. Arguing with a drunk man is painfully futile, so finally I gave in and sang Like a Virgin to him then I gave him an apple. I still need to call up his cousin Lenny. A party on the sidewalk outside the United Center sounds fab--ah yes...good times.
I have been told a few times that I look like the gorgeous Angie Everheart--all I can say about that is I FREAKIN WISH! The ONLY thing about me that looks like Angie is we both have long red hair. She is hot--SERIOUSLY HOT! Too bad I look nothing like her.
People (mostly women) tell me ALL THE TIME that I remind them of Carrie Bradshaw/Sarah Jessica Parker. Most of them say my style and demeanor more than my looks, which makes me happy because my husband thinks she is ugly. However, I do resemble her. I get told this all the time. That is OK because I love her. I am honored anyone thinks I have her style.
This is a photo of me and my beautiful friend "M" in Vegas. I am on the left with the red hair. Which celeb do YOU think I look like? If you say Ernest Borgnine I will have to kick your ass, so be kind! HA
What famous people have you been told you resemble?
My friend Kelly looks like Tracy Ullman and my friend Annie looks like Nigella Lawson! Oh and my friend Mike looks like Tom Cruise (normal cute Top Gun Tom Cruise, NOT crazy Scientologist Tom Cruise) and my friend Curtis looks like Christopher Reeve (RIP).
