October 21 08

so, yesterday i went to see my best friend the tailor. yes, the one who buys me chocolate bars. to, again, get MORE pants shortened. (ps. it would be swell to foronceinmylife actually walk into a store, buy a pair of pants and wear them without having to get them severely altered) and he says to me: “you know who you look like, Ali? That girl from Spiderman.”

oh yes, i’ve heard this before. TOO MANY TIMES. but seriously? Kirsten Dunst? really? REALLY? Isn’t Kirsten Dunst just a little, erm, fug?

the first time i’ve ever been told i look like someone famous pretty well scarred me for life. (possibly more scarring than the dude at the stoplight who liked himself a little too much)

get this.

Nina Webster. from the Young and the Restless. could you die?

how about now? (she’s the one on the right. yikes)

over the years i’ve had a few. i’ve had Felicity, which i’m attributing to the fact that we both have big ole round heads

and i’ve had Kaitlin Cooper from the OC…which i’m attributing to, erm, i don’t know? hairstyle?

and i’ve gotten Jordana Spiro from My Boys

and apparently, Matthew from ChildsPlayx2 chimed in with a very interesting choice…Marcia Brady. the pre-coke version..

which i totally can’t see.

only now that i actually went and looked for a photo…

oh my god. i totally see it.

oh my god.

I am Marcia Brady.

who do people say YOU look like??!??!

  1. The only one I see for you is the My Boys chick (no idea who she is though).

    I’ve been told I look like Michael Moore and Newman from Seinfeld. (Oooh yeah… that’s good for the ol’ self esteem.)

  2. Recently, since the new glasses, I have been told that I look like Tina Fey…which I guess now means I look like Sarah Palin? Which, YIKES.
    I don’t see it…but I have been told that I do look like Tina Fey by few people…so whatever!

    Comment by jodi on October 21, 2008
  3. I definately see you in Jordana Spiro – as in you could definately be related – but not so much the other ones.

    Comment by Sarah on October 21, 2008
  4. I have been told I look like Ali Sheedy and I have to say I am always none to happy to hear it. All I can picture of when I think of her is her greasy character from Breakfast Club. I know she did other stuff but UGH.

  6. It scares me that, when my hair is up and I have my reading glasses on, I could pull a Sarah Palin. NO!! I’d be fine with the Fey, but not Palin!

    A few people have said Alyson Hannigan from How I Met Your Mother. I could live with that.

  9. Fucking Kirsten Dunst! Because hi you and I look totally alike. But people tell me that ALL THE TIME. Also Zoey Deschanel (again, totally don’t see it, but she’s adorable so I’ll talke it) and Parker Posey (also don’t see it, but again cute so it’s kosher).

    Comment by slynnro on October 21, 2008
  10. You do kinda look like the Jordana girl a bit.. :)

    And I get all the time “do you know you look like that girl from Wings?” (yes that old school show)..

  12. I’ve gotten Renee Zellweger, not that I mind. But you know? I don’t think Kirsten Dunst is fug at all, but maybe that’s just me, I wouldn’t mind looking like her, or at least being that skinny…

  13. Mine is Tori Spelling. Talk about gross!! But I get it all the time. Makes me puke in my mouth a little.

    Comment by AJ on October 21, 2008
  14. And you also have a thing for short skirts.

    Comment by Matthew on October 21, 2008
  15. You know what it is? All of them have really bright, big eyes just like you. Other than that the only one I really see is Jordana Spiro.

    I never really get anyone famous but people always so “you look exactly like someone I know…” Ugh.

  16. I’ve been told since high school that I look like Kirstie Alley. I’m not sure if it’s the thin version or the fat one…hhhhmmmmmm!

    Comment by Meredith on October 21, 2008
  17. I totally see Jordana Spiro for you – it helps that I think she is very pretty, soo… also, Kirsten Dunst. Sorry, I think it’s something about at least her hair in the picture you used.

    For me?
    Kirsten Dunst, Christina Applegate and… Jodie Foster.

    Comment by Mari on October 21, 2008
  18. i’ve been told i look like agnetha faltsog from ABBA and shelley long from cheers…can’t see it myself though.

    Comment by LAVENDULA on October 21, 2008
  19. I’m not sure which I think fits you best – but with different hair you could probably pull off a very lovely Marcia Brady for Halloween.

    Me? I don’t really get any celebrity look-alikes, but I did get Charlize Theron one time… but I think they must have been confused!

    Comment by Sarah on October 21, 2008
  20. I don’t really get compared to celebrities, but once I was in this play set in the 40′s and my mom swore I looked like Grace Kelley. But it was my MOM so…

    Comment by supermommy on October 21, 2008
  23. Kirsten Dunst is totally fug. Nina Webster’s teeth always reminded me of a horse and in the picture above she looks like she’s going to jump through the screen and beat me senseless. I don’t see Marcia Brady at all – I do see the My Boys girl resemblance, though. I’d say that’s the most accurate comparison of them all.

    I am often told that I look like Lisa Loeb, but I think it has more to do with my choice in glasses frames than it does serious resemblance (I mean, come on, Lisa Loeb is HOT). You know those Hollywood comparison things where you can upload a pic of you and then see which stars you look like? I got Lisa Loeb and some other woman I didn’t know, then Elton John and Michael Jackson.

    ELTON JOHN and Michael fucking JACKSON.

    Comment by mamatulip on October 21, 2008
  24. I’m constantly told I look like the 1972 winner of Motherboy:


    Comment by Giblet on October 21, 2008
  25. Oh, how I LOATHE celeb comparisons. Unless you are telling me that I am Grace Kelly in the flesh, please stop. No, really, I mean it.

    That being said, I think Kirsten Dunst and Keri Russell are actually rather pretty. Well done you.

    For my own loathsome comparisons, I most frequently get Jewel or Renee Zellweger (circa “Jerry Maguire”). The worst pick-up line I’ve ever heard, however, involved my resembling Annika Sorenstam, the golfer. At least she’s an amazing golfer, but . ..

  28. I’ve been told that I look like Nicole Kidman. I think it has something to do with my flippy-uppy nose. Hopefully it’s not the expressionless zombie thing she has going for her. Oh but I love Nicole Kidman, I really do. She’s just so frozen.

    Comment by hillary on October 21, 2008
  29. With my glasses I get told Lisa Loeb. It never fails. With my new bangs – I kept getting a comparison that I can’t remember – so it can’t be that important.

    I think Kirsten Dunst is very pretty. I just don’t think she presents herself well which maybe is what you attribute to fug.

    Comment by Janna on October 21, 2008
  30. Jordana Spiro is not a bad likeness.

    Random strangers have come up to me and said I look like Alison Hannigan (Buffy, How I Met Your Mother, American Pie).

    For Hallowe’en, I often “dress up” like her, by walking around saying “This one time, at band camp…” Good times.

    Comment by No Mother Earth on October 21, 2008
  31. Leave it to Matthew to get it closest. That man is gifted. I have no idea who that Jordan chick is, but you kinda look like her too.

    I’ve never been told I look like anyone. I don’t even look like my parents.

  33. I’ve been told I look like Helen Hunt, which I think was a hairstyle thing, too, and Uma Thurman. I’m not sure I see that one at all, but I’ll take it.

    Comment by Wendy on October 21, 2008
  34. Hey!

    So I’ve been meaning to “delurk” myself for quite sometime now. I started reading you at work quite some time ago. I was looking up a recipe and bumped into the blog “Cheese Whiz and Mustard” which led me to “Shameleslly Sassy” which led me to you! I sadly don’t have a blog at the moment – though I am so totally jealous of them. One day! Anyways, my name’s Katie, I’m 20. Kidless at the moment, but me and my man are working on it. We’ve been married for two years. Heh, and as I’m typing this I’m thinking to myself “Shut UP, she doesn’t care – just delurk and be about your business.” So tada – I have delurked, I love your blog. It always makes me smile.

    Comment by Katie on October 21, 2008
  35. Mariah Carey. I got it all the time when I was a bit younger and thinner with long hair that actually gave a shit about doing.

    Kathy Bates (hahahha) joking – it is just the kind of day I am having .

    Have you tried Banana Republic petite pants?
    I, like you, am a wee bit vertically challenged (5″2). The BR martin fit petite pants fit me perfectly!

  40. Oh you totally look like Marcia. That chick from Y&R not so much.

    Sad but true: In high school, first day of my sophomore year, the girls at the lunch table next to me started calling me Bobby Brady! Agghh!

    Guess it’s a good thing I am starting to look more like Henry Rollins…wait, what am i saying?!

  46. I can see you as Katelin from the OC, a little. And PJ from My Boys. Kind of a mix of those two are the closest of all those choices, I think.

    I get Renee Zellwegger a lot, more so when I was a blonde. Also the daughter on 24.

    maybe it’s just the round face as well?

  52. Delurking because I did that picture thing online where you upload a photo and it tells you who your celebrity match is and it was FERGIE – and man, that girl is NOT pretty and I don’t see it. But part of me wonders whether we just get so used to the way we look that we can’t see resemblances. Even still, I hope to hell I do not look like her. If I unfortunately do, then I guess the one consolation is that it was cheaper for me to achieve this beauty! haha

  55. A long long time ago people used to say I looked like Brooke Shields. Which I did. I even made up a story that I wanted to enter a photo of myself looking like her into a contest, just so I could get this cool new girl at school to hang out with me. She was from NYC, and very artsy. It worked. We became good friends for a couple years. She did turn out to be kind of a freak. I wonder what ever happened to her.

  57. I’ve gotten Christina Ricci and Drew Barrymore – it’s the round face thing, not because I actually look like them. My mom was such a ringer for Hailey Mills that, when she went to Disneyland, people often asked for her autograph

    Comment by Courtney on October 24, 2008
  60. When I was little (like early teens), I used to get Sharon Stone a lot, because we both have fiveheads and similar eyebrows. Now I get Carrie Underwood A LOT, particularly when I curl my hair. I have even been mistaken for her in TN on numerous occasions. Oh, and the other most common is Sheryl Crow (when I don’t dry or curl my hair and just let the wave take over).

    But you know the absolute worst? BRITNEY EFFING SPEARS. From my own mother, last week. And not even late 90′s hot Brit, but post-meltdown, post-weight gainage Brit.
