February 3 10

Apparently, word on the street – and all over your facebook pages – is that it’s what-celebrity-do-YOU-look-like week, also known as doppleganger week. But, um, I have some issues with that word (of course I do)(newsflash: I am troubled).


Everyone seems to be lemming it up and jumping on the ole bandwagon. I have been enjoying seeing who people *think* they look like. Some are dead on. I mean, she totally looks like Maggie Gyllenhaal, don’t you think? And my sister? Dead ringer for Kyra Sedgwick. If you know me at all, you know I love a good bandwagon jumping.

Obviously, my picture will be changed to Marcia Brady.

I mean, hell, this, friends, is my future. Except, you know, without all the coke. Unless you are talking about the diet coca cola variety.

You totally see it, don’t you?

But, alas, it still doesn’t stop people from coming out of the woodwork.

NO! I do not look like KIRSTEN DUNST. And, for the record, neither does SHE.

NO! I do not look like Nina-fucking-Webster from The Young and the Restless.

NO! I do not, even though I do a mean Kevin from The Office impression, look like him, Meghan. (Oh, Kevin, how we all love you)

Even my dad weighed in with an opinion. He thinks I’m a dead ringer for Anna Kendrick…which I only sort of kind of maybe see…but I’ll take her Oscar nomination and, you know, the fact that Robert Pattinson licks her sometimes…

And NO! no matter what the stupid myheritage site tells me…I do not look like GEORGE HW BUSH ZOMG…

boom chicka wow wow.

74% George Bush.

FANTASTIC. And I’m not the only one who hates myheritage, either.

Have you changed your profile picture? Who do people say YOU like like?

  1. I have been getting ASIAN actresses as my highest matches. It’s, um, weird as I have absolutely NO Asian heritage WHATSOEVER in my lineage on either side.

    And yes, I totally know for sure that I don’t.

  2. I usually get called Drew Barrymore (particularly when my hair was red like hers in “Ever After”), though I got Khloe Kardashian last year (I had dark hair)… but my fave doppleganger post was my best friend, who took my picture and posted it, since people have thought we are twins since we first met at 13!

  3. you do kind of look like alicia silverstone, though. what’s that, 72%?

    i keep getting told i look like lauren conrad and then i laugh profusely. i also constantly get the girl from andre, corrina corrina, and napoleon dynamite. and rachel ray. and danicka patrick. and no, i will not be putting those up as my picture because i refuse to encourage people associating me with any of the above. except lauren conrad. who i DO NOT look like.

  4. Several people have told me that Katherine Heigl is my doppleganger. I definitely see the resemblance.

  5. I’ve gotten a combo of Sandra Bullock/ Penelope Cruz… but if I did look like them, I wouldnt be here right now, would I?

  6. Apparently I look like just about everyone because people are always telling me I look their cousin, their sister-in-law, their boyfriend’s neice once remove, or someone in a restaurant they were at on the weekend. I’ve been told I look like Marissa Tomei and Erica Gimpel (the TV Coco on Fame). I’m not sure how both are possible. My real life doppleganger is my 5-year-old son.

  7. I most often get told I look like Alyson Hannigan, and I am cool with that. Alas, I also get Velma from the Scooby gang. Hooray!

    MyHeritage, however, thinks I resemble assorted young Asian celebrities, most of whom are male. That may explain the whole Velma thing, actually…

  8. I see Anna Kendrick and Marcia Brady.

    When I was blonde, I got Renee Zelwegger and the daughter on 24. Now that I’m brunette? I don’t look like anyone! Even a brunette Renee Zelwegger.

  9. I see Marcia and Anna, George…not so much. I’m still without a celebrity look alike.

    Comment by Kaleigha on February 3, 2010
  10. MyHeritage told me I looked like Bob Hope. Not just Bob Hope but the OLD Bob Hope. And your chin sure does look like ole George’s.

  11. After “The Talented Mr Ripley,” every time I’d be out somewhere with glasses on, I’d get Matt Damon. When I had really short hair 10 years ago, I got Chris O’Donnell.

    Now, I get “that guy…you know the one!” because people are dumb.

  12. When I was in middle school, I was told I looked like Tiffany (the singer from the 80’s “I think we’re alone now, there doesn’t seem to be anyone around” that one). I think it was supposed to be an insult. But eh. Other than that, I just get a lot of “you look familiar”.

    I see Marcia and Alicia and Anna.

  13. Nina Webster! She always had such huge boobs. I think the Marcia Brady one is the closest.

    There’s not a single celebrity I look like.

  14. I was all psyched to put up a new profile pic until I went to a similar site and they told me I looked most like Jim Carey. Ego fail.
    (I used to get told I looked like Julia Stiles in Save the Last Dance, but I was usually wearing a leotard and pointe shoes when told that. Guessing it wasn’t my pretty face.)

  15. This post is giving me deja-vu for some reason. Need to adjust my dosage I guess. Someone told me I looked like Cheryl Hines. I changed my pic on FB for a couple of days, but one of my old classmates actually thought it was me. So, in the interest of full disclosure, I changed it back to the real me.

  16. When I did the myheritage thing a few years ago, my #1 was Beyonce and my #2 was Brendan Fraser.

    Um… yeah…

  17. … and my husband was Sarah Jessica Parker…

    Comment by Britt on February 3, 2010
  18. Bahahaha ME TOO! I had to blog about it, Myheritage told me I look like SEAN ASTIN!

    Comment by MBonn on February 3, 2010
  19. You. Are. Linda McCartney (before she died).

    I am Jennifer Grey. Before rhinoplasty.

  20. Try – cocacolazero.com

    its WAY better than my heritage 😉

  21. I get Tobey Maguire a lot. Especially after a new Spiderman comes out. Thankfully though, he’s not making any more of those.

    Comment by Hockeyman on February 3, 2010
  22. I honestly don’t think I have a celeb look alike. Honestly – hate the word doppleganger too.

    Comment by Maria on February 3, 2010
  23. I SWEAR, when we saw Up In The Air, I kept thinking Anna Kendrick looked like you. I’ve gotten Claire Danes and….Mariah Carey. Yeah, I don’t know, either.

    Comment by metalia on February 4, 2010
  24. You do look like Marcia Brady. So cute!

  25. I have apparently missed this look-alike bandwagon, but I do admittedly love! Anna Kendrick (though I love you more), and I can totally see why people would say you two look alike (it’s the nose, I think!).

    And “doppleganger” totally makes me think of The Shining. ICK.

  26. According to the same people that think you look like George Bush, I look like Barack Obama. And Joe Camel. Nice. So I put a picture of Gisele Bundchen up, because, fuck all y’all.

  27. I knew that’s why I thought you were hot. I have a secret crush on GHWB!

    Comment by Avitable on February 6, 2010
  28. My celebrity lookalikes on that site were all male. Some had moustaches. I renounce them!

    I’ve been told at random points in the past by total strangers that I look like steffi graf. I can’t see it. My husband can’t see it. But I went looking for a photo of her to use, and found one – just one – that looked exactly like me.

    Sadly to say – it’s all in the nose. Come to think of it, the people who commented on my likeness to her were always people sitting beside me.
