Who is Your Celebrity Twin?

A "conversation" yesterday got me thinking about this story:

When I was in college, I traveled with a group that performed assemblies for elementary school kids (judge if you must). We would sing and dance and act goofy under the guise we were teaching the kiddies about making good choices. At one school, I met a little girl (we'll call her Sally, mainly because I can't remember her real name) who looked at me kinda funny as I attempted to win her over before the show. Finally, she said, "Are you that lady from that Ever After movie?"
"You mean, Drew Barrymore?" I asked.
"Yeah," Sally replied.
"Uh, no," I laughed.
"I think you are," said Sally. "You just don't want to tell anyone."
"Sure kid. Whatever you say."

The show began and anytime I walked on stage, Sally would scream "Drew Barrymore!" I found this hilarious (and a nice little ego boost) until one of my co-dorks (who, after traveling for 9 months in an 8 person van, had basically become like my brother) said, "You don't look like Drew Barrymore. Drew Barrymore is hot" because he is a douchebag.

As I continued my journey to challenge the American youngsters, I had many kids tell me I looked like Drew Barrymore. I don't really see it, but I'll take the compliment.

The point of this post is not to tell you how gorgeous I am because some kids 5 years ago said I look like Drew Barrymore (because amazingly, some people don't even think she's hot), but to ask which celebrity you resemble, dear reader. Well? Post below!

I don't know if we look-alike, but I totally want this dress.

When Josh Tucker and I were waiting in line at Space Mountain these girls were convinced he was James Van Der Beek.

Red said...

I think you look more like JVDB than Josh

Randomly I got Kiefer Sutherland twice in the same day from different people sometime last year. People pretty much agreed growing up I resembled Kenneth Branagh. When I worked at Blockbuster Video I put Henry V over my name in the employee picks section to identify myself.

Dear Garney,

I'm pretty sure I love you.

Sincerely,
Falwless

Garney said...

stop... you make-a me blush...

Here is a link to a blog I wrote last year comparing a photo of mine to one of Kenneth Branagh.

The best compliment I ever got was someone telling me I look like Jennifer Connolly, but I assure you that's not true at all. I have also been told I look like a young Amy Brenneman. Of course I have also been told I look like the young guy from Dazed and Confused, so you know....

fran said...

Everyone tells me I look like Donal Logue. I'm still waiting for something more flattering.

Found you through Falwless' blog :)

Heidi said...

I get both Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox (?), and also Jodie Foster, Helen Hunt, and Brigit Fonda.

That being said, I look exactly like my dad (minus the black beard) with my mom's coloring.

I look like NO ONE in Hollywood.

I like to think it's because I'm unique. Others might think it's because I have this extra nose growing out of my cheek and we all know that celebrities can only have ONE nose on their face.

Or else I look something like a cross between Brad Pitt and Tom Arnold. Hah. Ponder that one for a while.

Red said...

Fran: Welcome! Falwless always sends the best people.

Heidi: I totally see all of those, actually...except maybe Courtney Cox.

Dan: Did you name the two hottest guys in Hollywood to try and impress me?

doorknob_dan said...

Red: Yeah. Totally made that up.

I ACTUALLY look like that angry Irish guy who was in Alexander.

OR, I actually look like the picture of me in my blog. One or the other. I forget.

Red said...

You look like what I imagine Jason Mulgrew looks like

Hmmm...maybe vaguely? He'd be the closest I could think of.

Red said...

C'mon! You were obviously separated at birth!

doorknob_dan said...

That would explain my scar!!!

He got the hard masturbating, hard drinking Sexiest Bachelor of 2005 part of us and I got the part that is unsuccessful and less eloquent.

But anyways, the question is, would you take either one of us home with you if you were drunk enough?

Red said...

For sure.

I don't think we can be married after all though, because you would kill my redhead genes and my people are going to be extinct soon, ya know?(a myth I will continue to perpetuate because I think it makes me special)

doorknob_dan said...

Oh damn. Genetics suck.

If I said I was infertile and photoshopped a certificate of some sort to back it up, do you think you would fall for it?

Red said...

It's worth a shot. I am very gullible.

doorknob_dan said...

Certificate of Authority:

Dan's swimmers are no good.

He's also been fixed. STD free too, FYI. It's all tickityboo, Red. Err, to whom it may concern.


PS: We could cure this easily if things changed.

Works for me.

Marriage on.

Falwless said...

Garney,

I'm certain I love you. Here is my picture. And the shirt was just a joke, I'm not a gold digger.

Yours,
Falwless

Red said...

I totally want that dress, too! I don't look like any celebrities. This one guy I went on two dates with thought I looked like Jennifer Connelly (sp?), but he was insane. Plus, I'm a redhead. On the other hand, go 'head and add "did some form of touring children's theatre" to the list of things we have in common.
