This comes from a conversation I had with Alison a bit ago....

What famous person do you get told you look like? Not just the flattering ones they're no fun, but the horrible ones that only your best mates and family tell you (everyone's best friends and family are cruel to them - right?).

I shall begin.

My boyf says I look like Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) or Steve Tyler (aerosmith)

My brother says I look like Sebastien Bach (Skid Row) or Debbie Harry (but he hates Debbie Harry so it's not a compliment!)

My best mate says I look like a fat Iggy Pop.

I know for a fact that I look exactly like Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) when he had long hair).

Lastly a picture of me for reference purposes

It's very hard to find a picture of Corgan with long hair, you know.

When I was at school I was a lot skinnier than I am now, and people used to tell me I looked like Ally McBeal. Bastards. Oh, and also Zippy from Rainbow. Double bastards!

heh! That is slightly uncanny. I'd have said Debbie Harry for you too..

Alison...I have to admit I laughed for a good minute or two at zippy but I don't really see the comparison myself. Wink

My stepdad used to call me Darleen (from Rosanne) but I think that was more for my sulking/teenage strop prowess more than anything.

I've never really been given any celeb lookey likeys. I feel cheated.

The only time I've ever been compared to a "celebrity" was kinda weird. When the TV mini-series for Stephen King's "The Stand" was on, a bunch of people told me that Laura SanGiacomo made them think of me. I don't know if they meant that in a good way or bad, but it was a good number of people telling me this. And I've only ever heard it from that role, never from anything else she was in.

Before 'Sex and the City' I would get varying things like.. that girl from The Real World: Seattle, the quiet one. :\
Now, everyone tells me I look like Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) from Sex and the City.

Just because we've both got short red hair and are awkward looking.. sigh

You're too kind! Embarassed

The Billy Corgan thing though - I've done a survey and nobody can deny it!!

You always remind me of someone (not Darlene from Roseanne) but I can never quite put my finger on it!

I'm always told I look like the girl from A Series of Unfortunate Events (Emily Browning, I think her name is). I've been stopped on the street and asked if I was her.

That chick.

She IS great!

The funniest thing about this video, on further viewing, is that she is a much better dancer than the 'programmed robots' on stage.

There was a stage where I was told I looked like anyone - anyone - who was skinny, white and brunette. This ranged from Demi Moore to Mystic Meg. It was great.

Now I don't look like anyone, I miss my multi celebrity status!
