I’m one of those people who other people always sees a celebrity in me. No – I don’t have narcissistic undertones – lol – it just happens! Everywhere! And just like all gifts, it comes out whether I want it to or not. Standing in line at the check out. Going in for my yearly doctor visit! I guess it’s hard to turn off my “you look just like…” persona.
It first happened back in the 9th grade. A friend’s dad said, “You look just like a young Jodie Foster.” Umm…yeah…maybe he needed glasses?!
But then it happened again – with an older, wiser friend comparing me to Heather Graham. I immediately went home and watched Austin Powers to see if I acted anything like her!! I mean…I was sporting the blonde hair and all..but…really? Like, Totally Awesome!
Again – with the college boyfriend – Jodie Foster.
Again – working my old retail job – Heather Graham.

How cool are these people who can pick up on bone structure and facial expressions and all that jazz?
And now I’m thinking…why can’t I just pick it out of people? I usually watch a movie, and two days later see a different movie with the same actor and am like, “He looks familiar…” HA. Jokes on me! Not even resembles…but is the SAME actor!! I mean, why can’t I just see Dr. Phil walking across the lobby? Or Cameron Diaz working out at the gym. Or bump into Nicolas Cage at the grocery store?! I would even take Megan Fox as my car mechanic! My life just might be a bit more interesting if I could see celebrity Doppelgängers everywhere! Well – unless I see Jon Gosselin or Kim Jong-il. Then, you may find me cowering in a corner.
Who do you look like? What celebrity doppelgängers frequent your hangouts?
