Went for lunch with a friend (Heidi Klum) look-a-like yesterday. She was playing the 'ooh - which gorgeous supermodel do I look like game'. Bit boring and predictable as she really does.What a fisher. Anyhoos, I came out as Vic Reeves... not a young one either. Ran to loo to adjust winkle pickers and novelty leggings only to stare into the face of... Vic Reeves. Everywhere I go Vic is staring out at me.Am uncanny spit.
Which celeb do you look like but would rather not?

When I'm about a stone lighter I get told Cameron Diaz, woop woop....(Can't see it AT ALL myself grin) ....sadly now I'm NOT a stone lighter it doesn't happen anymore! I suppose I must now look like her porkier, older sister.....!
When I was a lot younger it was Michaela Strachan, when she did that wildlife programme. I'm guessing between the two, people are saying I've got a wide smile!

I used to often get told I looked like a young Grace Kelly. Sadly not anymore.

When I was 18 I modelled myself on the lead singer from the Cranberries (Dolores somethingorother) - I really thought I looked the part- cropped red hair etc.

I walked into a bar in Tenerife and the DJ shouted "ladies and gentlemen- Jimmy Krankie has entered the building" (im only 4ft 11")

I grew my hair after that

Hayden panetierre. A girl off her tits in a club once became obsessed that I was avril levigne and followed me around all night asking questions.

A girl in DS's class saw Claudia Winkleman on TV and said to her Dad "that looks like (my DS)'s mum" .

I think the only resemblance was probably hair colour and the fact my fringe might have needed a trim!

Oh and years ago someone in a pub said I looked like Andie Macdowell.

MamaLazarou Sun 08-Feb-15 16:51:28

Julia Sawalha.

It could be worse smile

Michelle Pfeiffer, but I can't see it myself. Nearly got mobbed in HK airport once. Besides she is significantly older than me.

BellsUpMyNose Sun 08-Feb-15 16:48:54

in my younger days i was told by a few people that i looked like the nutter in the hand that rocks the cradle these days i look more like alice from the vicer of dibly. (sits in the corner rocking)

EveBoswell Sun 08-Feb-15 16:43:13

I was once told that I look like the Queen. Only once. My hair is the same colour and the same sort of style but not quite. Her clothes are totally different from mine grin.

supersop60 Sun 08-Feb-15 16:33:37

Wendy Craig. sigh

morethanpotatoprints Sun 08-Feb-15 16:24:48

When my hair is short, long atm.
I look like Stockard Channing.

My dh looks the spit of Walter Matthau.? spelling. grin

I get told I look like Claire Danes a lot. What I actually look like is Claire Danes' older plump sister with anger issues (I've got wrinkles on the forehead from permanently being surprised by the children's stupidity.)

HouseAtreides Sun 08-Feb-15 16:17:12

I look like nobody!
However when POTC came out DH used to be told he looked like Orlando Bloom- it was a bit of a running joke. Now he looks like Orlando Bloom would if he lifted heavy things for a living and in the gym, rarely shaved and was generally a bit dishevelled!

Bexicles Sun 08-Feb-15 16:12:56

I used to get Andrea Corr a lot in the nineties. smile

Summeblaze Sun 08-Feb-15 16:10:31

DH looks like Freddie Prinze Jr.

liquidstateisonthemulled Sun 08-Feb-15 16:10:31

Paul Merton. Had to grow my hair long because of it.

Anyone remember the thing a while back that you uploaded a photo to and it said 67% Heidi Klum 4% princess diana. Well all my friends posted theirs and were 50% Audrey Hepburn or whatever.

I was 87% Dustin Hoffman. hmm

Enormouse Sun 08-Feb-15 16:04:20

Parminder Nagra hmm, though probably because we're both Indian and youngish.

gingerbreadmam Sun 08-Feb-15 16:02:11

when i got my first proper job 12+ years ago my boss always told me i looked like gemma atkinson who was lisa hunter in hollyoaks. i neger saw it tbh now id be like 3 gemma atkinsons stuck together minus the boobs too.

my nanna also had a framed photo of me in her front room and apparently her plumber asked her why she had posters of britney spears grin i think he was jus brightening an old dears day. bar the blonde hair n being slim at the time i looked nothing like britney.

Ilovereadingbooks Sun 08-Feb-15 15:59:31

Queen, i would love to look like Kate ( and have some of her money and slender frame but not the husband or fame. Or Camilla as step mum in law)
