The Internet is blind

Have you done this celebrity lookalike thingy? Every time I've tried it, I use a different photo and come up with different results.

This time, I used my NaBloPoMo page photo and got new chicks. ('Cept it won't fit right on the page, bah!)

The first chick -- the person I supposedly look the most like -- is Woranuch Wongsawan, a Thai soap opera star. That's very flattering, even if I don't know who she is. And seriously, do I look Asian?

The second one is Amanda Seyfried from the Mean Girls movie and Veronica Mars. I really don't see the resemblance. At all.

Moving farther down the lookalike percentage, we have Mandy Moore, the lovely late Deborah Kerr (who passed away just a couple weeks ago) and Australian singer/actress Holly Valance -- another person I've never heard of. (Sorry to my Australian friends.)

Next is Amrita Rao, another eastern "lookalike" who turns out to be a Bollywood star, R&B hottie Ciara and -- perhaps most amazing of all -- the Internet thinks I look like Grace Kelly.

In real life, people have told me I look like Kristin Davis (Charlotte from Sex and the City), Geena Davis (Commander in Chief), Norah Jones and Helena Bonham-Carter (most recently in a Harry Potter movie but maybe best known as the Merchant Ivory-type historical British movie chick).

This all just begs the question: if these women can make millions, then why can't I?!

I hear ya! We should be making millions!

I did the look alike thing and it got it right--Meg Ryan! I've had people at stores ask me if anyone's ever told me I look like Meg. They used to call me Meg in High School. I think it's just b/c we both have a long neck. LOL! Actually, it's weird b/c I've always thought my aunt looks like Meg Ryan.

I am afraid of who they would kick out for me...You are in some great company, and some I've never heard of!

I did this once too and the depressing thing is that I actually had guys show up in my matches!

I see a little Sloan from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

OK, I totally see what Amanda's saying -- I see Sloan too! You're both gorgeous.

As for the others -- I would NOT have a problem with looking like any of them.

Must try this ... looks like fun.

That's ok sweetie, we don't really like Holly Valance over here anyway, would you like to adopt her?
