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?

fantashtic Fri 05-Apr-13 08:06:25

Fucking Angela Lansbury, since I was 19

LadyVoldemort Fri 05-Apr-13 08:07:50

Melissa Joan Hart. She looks like a lovely person but I'd much rather look a bit more glamorous!

LadyVoldemort Fri 05-Apr-13 08:09:04

Anyway, Vic Reeves is cool, embrace it grin
And fwiw when I was a young emo I was the spit of Noel whathisface with the black hair.

Icelollycraving Fri 05-Apr-13 08:10:24

Laeticia Dean aka Sharon from eastenders/touch of Fern Britton in her this morning fat days.

ArtVandelay Fri 05-Apr-13 08:10:52

Carole Vorderman. She's a bonny woman but her fitness videos and catalogue advertising irritate me. I much preferred her when she did sums on Countdown.

Branleuse Fri 05-Apr-13 08:14:50

Freddie Mercury IMO

SmellieWellies Fri 05-Apr-13 08:15:51

Someone asked me once if I am Imogen Stubbs. I was so flattered until i realised she is now in her 50s and i am - well, not.

We both have bushy eyebrows, otherwise I cannot see it. She is deffo way more attractive than me, even if she is quite alot older!

I'm actually on Fake Faces and A-list Look-a-likes as a Joss Stone look-a-like but I've never had any work. I don't look anything like her now though, my hair is very different.

I did get mobbed in Newquay once years ago and asked for autographs blush

ArtVandelay Fri 05-Apr-13 08:20:24

Dame, your 'friend' sounds like a loon.

MrsToddsShortcut Fri 05-Apr-13 08:20:37

I was once told I looked like the Queen Mother <weeps>

whitewineintherain Fri 05-Apr-13 08:26:07

I was once told I looked like Jade Goody. <lucky me>
Now though i'm told I look like a fat Billie piper. <not sure how much better that is>

Mimstar Fri 05-Apr-13 08:29:36

I have been told a few times I look like Anna Paquin when she's blonde.

I'm not convinced.

I've also used to get Jamie Lynn Spears when she was Zoey 101. <cry>

mackerella Fri 05-Apr-13 08:31:17

My mum thinks I look like India Knight, and has continued to tell me this for the last 20 years sad

I don't look like her at all well maybe just a bit

Feminine Fri 05-Apr-13 08:33:39

Oh, so many different ones...

None of them very accurate. grin but they are all very famous.

I should be flattered...

KenDoddsDadsDog Fri 05-Apr-13 08:33:58

Lorraine Twatting Kelly

ExcuseTypos Fri 05-Apr-13 08:35:53

I've ebbed told many times that I look like an older Rachel Stevens from SClub.

I don't see myself but will take it as a compliment.

Feminine Fri 05-Apr-13 08:36:17

Oh, I just remembered a funny one.

My Mum said I look like Gillian Taylforth (sp)

and Marilyn Monroe <<laughs and laughs >>

You would think she would see me more accurately wouldn't you?

ohforfoxsake Fri 05-Apr-13 08:36:33

The bloke from Shameless. It's uncanny really.

In my younger days it was Sheena Easton.

Then when I had hair extensions Fergie. (The royal one, not the footy one).

confused

LydiasLunch Fri 05-Apr-13 08:37:41

Marilyn Manson.

WheresMyCow Fri 05-Apr-13 08:39:12

My MIL insists that when my hair is down I look like Nana Mouskouri hopefully when she was younger not now that she is 78 shock

I have long dark hair and glasses and that is where the resemblance ends!

My DH has been told, more than once, that he looks like Damian Lewis grin

lisianthus Fri 05-Apr-13 08:41:16

Barney the dinosaur

BerryLellow Fri 05-Apr-13 08:42:46

When I was younger I was told I looked like Baby from dirty dancing. Now I just look haggard. grin

HoobleDooble Fri 05-Apr-13 08:44:08

My friend recently said I could easily be the mother of Sharon Rooney (from My Big Fat Mad Diary). When I was younger I used to get Danni shouted at me, as apparently I looked like Danni Minogue in her Home and Away days, or Morticia Adams (the original Black and White series, not Angelica Houston!)

Minion Fri 05-Apr-13 08:44:09

When I had long hair and wore thick eyeliner I got Rosie frigging Webster all the time.
Now I've got short hair people say to remind them of Anne Hathaway. Not too shabby, though I look absolutely nowt like her maybe in the teeth pulling scene in les mis
In the morning I look like Bruno mars with his huge quiff.

Piplin Fri 05-Apr-13 08:45:09

Avril lavigne a bit meh about it
I work with someone who is the female Patrick swayze!

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 08:46:25

Ha. Lovely mate if mine HATES being told she looks like jennie bond the royal reporter or bloody that woman off loose woman. The cruise singer Jayne McDonald. I had a jm photo onto phone that flashed when she rang. Made me HOOT

DonDrapersAltrEgoBigglesDraper Fri 05-Apr-13 08:47:47

I've been told I look like a rake of different people, from the sublime to the ridiculous (the blonde one from Abba...? Nicole Kidman?? I'm dark-haired, brown-eyed and olive-skinned grin).

I don't look like a single one of them, needless to say.

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 08:47:58

I was once told I looked like Ricky lake (in hairspray days). Thanks a fucking bunch.
Till they hurriedly said. "But thinner ". Yeah.

DonDrapersAltrEgoBigglesDraper Fri 05-Apr-13 08:49:36

I would love to encounter a female Swayze-alike. grin

dizzyhoneybee Fri 05-Apr-13 08:49:41

Look on the bright side, it's got to be better to look in the mirror and see your mother looking back at you hasn't it?! Depending who you resemble of course....

Chocoflump Fri 05-Apr-13 08:50:32

I look like dawn French

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Fri 05-Apr-13 08:52:23

On a good day people say I look like Kate Bush

On a bad day Shelley Duvall

Longdistance Fri 05-Apr-13 08:52:27

Julia Roberts believe it or not. I can't see it myself, but loads of people have commented on it in my slimmer days
I once worked with a girl who was the spits of Kate Moss. She once went into a shop, and the shop assistants were bitching saying how much weight she'd put on lately shock
Can you tell my job was glamorous!

moonstorm Fri 05-Apr-13 08:54:55

Heidi klum
<glares at op>

moonstorm Fri 05-Apr-13 08:55:15

OlyRoller Fri 05-Apr-13 08:56:40

Nana Mouskouri or Maria Callas

DidyouseeEthel Fri 05-Apr-13 08:57:04

For nearly 20 years I was told I was the image of princess Diana, not so much now as people forget her. My hair has always been longer and floppier though. I just think I look like me dad (he's not famous).

PenelopePisstop Fri 05-Apr-13 09:00:44

I am a dead ringer for Madge Allsop (Dame Edna's bridesmaid). You'd think it was her - if you saw my work ID card!

Wereonourway Fri 05-Apr-13 09:03:53

Daniela westbrook. In her eastenders days. thankfully my nose is all there

DameDoom Fri 05-Apr-13 09:04:32

These are making me howl. To think I had the audacity to post on S&B giving advice shock. Hope no one took it - would be further mortified.

Eskino Fri 05-Apr-13 09:04:42

I think I'm the spit of Jimmy Carr but people have said I look like Belinda Carlisle when she was in the charts.

Ezza1 Fri 05-Apr-13 09:06:44

Good day Leo Sayer.

Bad day The Doc bloke from Back to the Future.

No fucking hope for me sad sad

KayHunt Fri 05-Apr-13 09:08:11

When I was a child I was repeatedly told I looked like Natalie Cassidy... hmm

daddyorchipsdaddyorchips Fri 05-Apr-13 09:08:26

I get Holly Willobooby. I cannot see it myself but its happened so many times that I am willing to take it! There are worse people to look like!

CajaDeLaMemoria Fri 05-Apr-13 09:12:53

Britney Spears before she shaved her hair and went mad... I've never believed it, but we got mobbed in a coffee shop when I was 16, and I posed with a group of tourists to make them leave us alone.

It's happened around twice a year since, so someone must be able to see it! I can't, though. DP finds it hilarious.

catinboots Fri 05-Apr-13 09:15:17

Garth from Wayne's world

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 05-Apr-13 09:21:24

I've been told by a few randoms now I look like khloe kardashian which I will take as a compliment even those she's described as the ugly sister

PollyIndia Fri 05-Apr-13 09:23:49

Did they Heidi klum friend say you looked like vic reeves op? She sounds like a frenemy! My friend told me I reminded her of lady gaga the other day.
Not sure why... Maybe it's that meat dress i keep wearing.

noddyholder Fri 05-Apr-13 09:26:07

In te 80s I got belida Carlisle all the time. Then Kate wins let when she was heavy once she got fit ....never enjoined again grin

noddyholder Fri 05-Apr-13 09:26:35

Crawling Fri 05-Apr-13 09:30:50

I was mistaken for Britney Spears age 17.

MrsTyrionLannister Fri 05-Apr-13 09:31:01

Velma Dinkley smile i can accept that

twirliedobbit Fri 05-Apr-13 09:33:22

I used to get Libby from neighbours and then sporty spice (even got asked if I was her once in a petrol station when at the height of their fame. As if I would be driving a battered old sierra in south London if I was!)
Most recently I've had Toni colleti (hopefully not Miriam's wedding style) and the most recent and most insulting....Miranda!!!!
Don't really see how any of these people look like each other so not sure how I get told them all!!!

MrsWolowitz Fri 05-Apr-13 09:33:23

People used to say I looked like Katie Holmes back in the day (when I was young and she was sporting bad hair and denim jackets in Dawsons Creek).

She has just got more and more beautiful and I've got more and more haggard and old.

Now I look more like her miserable, sour faced older sibling.

<sigh>

zoyt Fri 05-Apr-13 09:35:22

I used to get Gail Porter (during her projected naked on Westminster days). People used to actually ask me if I was her, we are both from the same town so same accent too!

My (female) boss used to get Boy George grin

Iused to look like scully from the x files but a friend told me a couple of years ago it is now meryl Streep........ <books nose job>

sapphirestar Fri 05-Apr-13 09:39:28

TreeLuLa Fri 05-Apr-13 09:41:08

Dawn French.

Luckily I love her so that is ok grin

ENormaSnob Fri 05-Apr-13 09:43:19

Katie melua

Or Imogen Thomas hmm

Lambzig Fri 05-Apr-13 09:43:50

I used to get told Michelle Pfeiffer, but not for a while. Obviously it must be her that's ageing so horribly we no longer look alike smile

CadleCrap Fri 05-Apr-13 09:44:06

I used to get Demi Moore from the Ghost era [preen]

Now I get Hailey from Corrie [not quite so preen]

M0naLisa Fri 05-Apr-13 09:44:12

DH said I have a look of Helen Baxendale.

DH on the other hand could get work as a David Walliams double ;-) everywhere he goes people say 'ooh you look like David.....'
DH says 'yeah I know before they even finish their sentance wink

David Walliams is fit!! grin

directoroflegacy Fri 05-Apr-13 09:45:45

Once (only once mind) the class of foreign sts I was teaching were all whispering to eachother "ask her, go on"
Turns out they'd spent the term convinced I was Hugh Grant's sister - This was about the time of 4 weddings.
So a female Hugh Grant!
Although now Fabio Capello (ex England Football Manager)

AThingInYourLife Fri 05-Apr-13 09:46:28

Danny DeVito

M0naLisa Fri 05-Apr-13 09:46:31

Lambzig Fri 05-Apr-13 09:47:05

Oh are we doing DHs. DH looks like a chubbier Alexander Armstrong.

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 05-Apr-13 09:50:15

My oh looks like paddy mcguinness
Me likey smile

RenterNomad Fri 05-Apr-13 09:51:58

No-one sees me any more; I have a screen for a face. sad

I've been told Philippa Forrester and Carol Vorderman. I don't see how they're similar at all but I was quite pleased with the Phillipa one!
DP has been told the guy from American pie who does Stifler's mum or a heavier Justin Timberlake in the sexyback video. I agree with the 2nd one! grin

FreudiansSlipper Fri 05-Apr-13 09:56:08

I was once told I looked like Sarah Brightman this was before her nose job

I look nothing liker her

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 09:56:33

klaxon. This is about bad looky likeies

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 09:56:58

So keep your gorgeous looky likeies away. ;)

StickEmUpPunk Fri 05-Apr-13 09:58:47

Paula Yates hmm

Or sometimes Agyness Deyn (preferable)

mouseymummy Fri 05-Apr-13 09:58:57

I once got stopped in a supermarket to beasked where "Pete" was?!?! I asked the rather prim and proper lady what she was talking about and she stood there and asked me if I was the one "marries to that wonderful peter Andre...." yes, she thought I was Katy price/Jordan...

When I put this to my friends.. They agreed sad I've now got new friends!!

StickEmUpPunk Fri 05-Apr-13 10:00:34

When I had braces I was told I looked like the charactor from 'Something about Mary' by school bullies.

<cries>

TSSDNCOP Fri 05-Apr-13 10:11:09

Miranda sad

Or when my colours been done Claire Baldwin.

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 10:11:25

Oh dear!

MintyyAeroEgg Fri 05-Apr-13 10:16:22

A sort of morphed into one amalgamation of the Nolan sisters sad

StuntGirl Fri 05-Apr-13 10:20:27

Nana Mouskouri too! <weeps>

The first time it happened it was a customer at work who told me and I'd never heard of her. All my colleagues wholeheartedly agreed, lots of "Ooh yes, she does doesn't she?" I googled her when I got home and nearly cried. I've been told it since too by others so more than one person can obviously see it.

Why oh why would someone tell you that?! Unless your look a like is drop dead gorgeous its a bit of a twatty thing to do isn't it!

StuntGirl Fri 05-Apr-13 10:22:15

Did anyone else click on mouseys name to see if she had pics grin

Ashoething Fri 05-Apr-13 10:22:20

My gf used to call me veronica lake-old screen beauty-I wish! When I was young and slim I got told I looked like the girl who played Jackie Dixon in brookside ALL the time-I look nothing like her but we both had very long blonde hair for a period.

My best friend has always maintained I look like Janice from the muppets!-in her defence she says its a compliment and Janice has a huge grin and she says Im always smilinghmm

Fenton Fri 05-Apr-13 10:24:42

I have been told a few times I look like Carla Bonner who played Steph in Neighbours - I don't mind that at all..

But I have also been likened to Carol Jackson off 'stenders - which I do mind very much hmm

TSSDNCOP Fri 05-Apr-13 10:25:06

Janis is way cool.

Cooler than stupid Miranda.

Samu2 Fri 05-Apr-13 10:25:53

Sally from home and away, apparently.

Oh and Miss Piggy.

Feelingood Fri 05-Apr-13 10:26:15

When I was younger Tiffany off eastenders.

During a similar haircut phase Maxine Carr, I promptly changed.

Ona good day Nigella esque or Lisa Dingle - depends on weight, hair and outfit mainly.

FayeKorgasm Fri 05-Apr-13 10:27:57

I supposedly look like Grace Kelly. I wish!

Arabesque Fri 05-Apr-13 10:30:49

I'm a dead ringer for Audrey Hepburn. <deluded>

comelywenchlywoo Fri 05-Apr-13 10:38:22

When Jennifer Love Hewitt was in "party of five" we looked alike.

Unfortunately, we have parted ways in the looks stakes and now I look like a "young Princess Anne". Apparently this was meant as a compliment. Unfortunately, I know where they were coming from - a hairdresser once put my hair up in a french roll (or whatever you call it) and I did look decidedly royal - I think it's because I have no chin.

My Auntie thought I looked like Julia Roberts when dolled up at a party recently. I love my Auntie!!

oldraver Fri 05-Apr-13 10:38:31

My son keeps on telling me I look like Dawn French, he will hold my hair at the side (mine is a bit longer? and say if you hair was this short you would look like that lady on tv (which we had ascertained is DF)

I wish ha, she is beautiful and I look nothing like her. I think its the general roundedness

willyoulistentome Fri 05-Apr-13 10:42:54

Jenny Agutter apparently, when I was young. Was pointed out to me in the most charming manner once. (Oi - you look like that bird what was getting shagged in American werewolf in London).

I seem to be channeling Pauline Fowler nowadays though.

KatoPotato Fri 05-Apr-13 10:44:44

I hate 'lookalike fishers' my now ex-friend used to fish for Alicia Silverstone but after she gave me 'Stifler's Mom' I gave her Kevin Bacon instead!

SirBoobAlot Fri 05-Apr-13 10:44:57

Get told I look like Kate Winslet a lot. That's fine with me.

Nobhead Fri 05-Apr-13 10:45:25

I got Natasha Hamilton about 12 years ago in her young Atomic Kitten days.... not so much now though. Also been told I look like Stella McCartney, must be my miserable sour face.

shockers Fri 05-Apr-13 10:47:22

I used to get told I looked like a young Jane Asher and I did. Now I don't even look like an old Jane Asher and I'm probably 20 years younger than her.

I blame DH... I was pretty when we met!

flossymuldoon Fri 05-Apr-13 10:49:36

People used to say i looked like Jane Seymour. I haven't had that said since i had my hair cut short.

These days i've had quite a few Amanda Burton comments. I can live with that!

MrsBungle Fri 05-Apr-13 10:50:13

I get told Holly Willoughby a lot. In my younger days, loads of people said I looked like Melinda Messenger (in her boobs out phase shock). I don't think I really look like either of them well, maybe a more haggard, less well presented version

Brittabot Fri 05-Apr-13 10:51:32

I did one of those look alike apps and as a white woman was surprised to get Will Smith. I gave it another go and got Tom Hanks. Third time I got Kate Beckinsale but I felt it had lost credibility at that point.

Plumviolet Fri 05-Apr-13 10:52:34

I was told once that i looked like kate moss after a few burgers. hmm

ComposHat Fri 05-Apr-13 10:58:26

I tend to get compared to any bumbling mousy haired bloke in glasses.

during the mid 90s it was Wiiiiilllll from TFI Friday.

Nowdays it tends to be Gareth Malone or a young Alan Bennett

The mot flattering one was Ben Gibbard from the band 'The Postal Service' which was ace cos he was married to Zoey Dashenel at the time.

Although I do look A LOT like a smaller version of Colin Meloy from the Decemberists, so much so that my mum couldn't tell a picture of him from one of me.

MyPlugInBaby Fri 05-Apr-13 11:04:15

When I was a teenager I was bullied because I looked like Björk.

Now I get Janine off of eastenders CONSTANTLY. Even when I wear my sodding glasses. I deliberately changed my hair style but nothing makes any difference. She even got pregnant same time as me bitch

Think is rather be björk again. It does upset me, probably because of the bullying but I realise that my problem, no one else's.

ScumbagCollegeDropout Fri 05-Apr-13 11:04:46

When I had black hair and a fringe I got told I look like Abby from NCIS.

Now with purple/pink hair I get nada wink

NotAQueef Fri 05-Apr-13 11:06:45

ScarletLady02 as you outed yourself, I took the liberty of looking at said looky-likey sites, and you do indeed make a very good Joss Stone - you have fabulous hair!

Grockle Fri 05-Apr-13 11:10:37

Darlene from Roseanne

I used to get stopped in the street when I was a teenager to ask if I was her.

ComposHat Fri 05-Apr-13 11:12:41

Oh yeah, my fiancée LOVES the fact that she gets compared to Gerard Depardieu, but then she is a bit of an oddball.

ShatnersBassoon Fri 05-Apr-13 11:17:16

I look like Lesley Sharp, according to a couple of people who've said "You look like that actress. Can't remember her name, she was in that thing with that woman from Corrie..."

I went to school with a girl who looked like Ben Elton, so I'm relatively happy with my lot.

ForceMajeure Fri 05-Apr-13 11:30:10

When I was a teenager I was constantly told I looked like Kate Bush.

I was thrilled with this as I was (and still am) a big fan.

Now I don't look like anyone because I became invisible in middle age.

ToomuchWaternotWine Fri 05-Apr-13 11:30:14

When I let my hair go naturally curly and it's normal shade of brown, I get told Sigourney Weaver a LOT. Similar strong jawline <sigh> I have blonde hi lights now and use straighteners ...

Isittimeforgin Fri 05-Apr-13 11:36:05

When I was much younger and slimmer I was told a few times that I looked like Patsy Kensit. However no-one has said that to me for a veeery long time grin

Saski Fri 05-Apr-13 11:52:34

I don't know that I could spend any amount of time with someone who played the "which supermodel do I look like" game. What an ass.

RichPetunia Fri 05-Apr-13 11:56:40

I don't look like anyone but I sister once had people shouting after her in London "It's Leticia" (Sharon from Eastenders). That was probably 25 years ago and she still looks like her today.

bringonyourwreckingball Fri 05-Apr-13 12:00:13

Someone once told me I looked like Uma Thurman. I didn't then and I certainly don't now.

When I'm not carrying ten ton of baby weight - Fearne Cotton. Unfortunately I currently am so I'm more Fern Britten pre gastric band. Bummer.

Calabria Fri 05-Apr-13 12:12:46

In my youth I was apparently quite like Jacqueline Kennedy.

Using celebrity.picadilo.com I am 70% like Cristiano Ronaldo (who?), 60% Serena Williams, 59% Pedro Almodovar (who?), 58% Jackie Chan (!?!?!?!) and 56% Martha Stewart. Think I might have to use a different picture and try again.

WandaDoff Fri 05-Apr-13 12:14:28

Toyah Battersby & Seven of Nine.

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 12:15:02

Lol at Ben elton

comelywenchlywoo Fri 05-Apr-13 12:20:45

Oooh Calabria I followed your link and apparently I look like Laura Linney and J-Lo and Paul Maccartney

ForceMajeure Fri 05-Apr-13 12:21:03

Calabria I would be too scared to use that site grin

EggInABap Fri 05-Apr-13 12:22:07

Friends and family all think I am like Jennifer Aniston (the fat version of course)

One 'friend' about ten years ago, when I was particularly chubby and going through a bleach blonde hair phase, likened me to Kerry Katona. blush

Think I'll stick with Jennifer Aniston!

Nishky Fri 05-Apr-13 12:28:06

Hazel Dean (although this was 25 years ago)

HelenDaniels Fri 05-Apr-13 12:31:25

When at school I was the image of Phoebe the geeky girl in glasses in Neighbours. Same chin and nose.

I have been told that I now look like a younger Helen Hunt.

Both of which are quite flattering so I am pleased.

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 05-Apr-13 12:37:01

Wtaf I used that Calabria wish I hadn't - I got chin-o-mighty celine Dion or and my (male) oh got Kate winslet and Elizabeth banks. <cries>

noddyholder Fri 05-Apr-13 12:38:00

My son says I look like Aunt Bessie shock

abbathehorse Fri 05-Apr-13 12:43:43

I got accused of being that racist lady who was awful to Shilpa Shetty at work once! Had to deny vehimently (not sure why she'd be in the staff bogs in an office in Kew, but never mind).
Also, in the 90s, Zoe Ball.
Not too keen on either, but Zoe Ball is better!

ErrorError Fri 05-Apr-13 13:16:09

When I was younger I got "Sandra Bullock without the square jaw" which was sort of nice but I don't see it at all. My passport photo looks a bit like Myra Hindley's mugshot though... Can't wait til it expires!

My mum when she was my age (27) got Princess Anne all the time, I can really see it in old photos. All she needed was a beehive. Incidentally they are the same age, but they couldn't look more different now.

cozietoesie Fri 05-Apr-13 13:24:58

My only gripe with my celebrity look-alike (and she can be anonymous) is that she appears to live in a different universe. Not only does her physical appearance seem to age more slowly than mine, but her declared age is going up more slowly than mine. hmm

If only I knew the secret!

Convert Fri 05-Apr-13 13:26:48

I apparently look like Tulisa (NDubz, Xfactor) and DH looks like Shane Ward who was on X Factor years ago.

babysbreath Fri 05-Apr-13 13:34:39

When I had short blonde hair I was told all the time I looked Princess Diania, then when my hair was long, dark and curly I was told I looked like Celine Dione and then when it was long, blonde and straight people mentioned I looked like Paula Radcliffe.

BoiledEggandToastSoldiers Fri 05-Apr-13 13:42:29

Lorraine Kelly sad

It doesn't help that she appears on an advert on this site so see her quite frequently.

NoelHeadbands Fri 05-Apr-13 13:50:05

A female Tim Minchin hmm

I've told this on here before, but many years ago I was told I looked like a young Norma Major.

That kind of shit fucks you up sad

nightmaretime Fri 05-Apr-13 13:53:10

Harry Potter sad

ToothGah Fri 05-Apr-13 14:00:02

My DP insists I look like Sheridan Smith.

To the point he got drunk one night and walked around the pub showing everyone Sheridan Smith's photo and pointing at me the curvy redhead standing at the bar.

Everyone's face was like hmm ok.

That stupid celeb picture calculator said I was 51% Morgan Freeman and 49% Donald Trump angry

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 05-Apr-13 14:09:48

I did it again to make sure I didn't look like celine Dion...and I don't I actually look like an old man https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=oscar+de+la+renta&hl=en&client=safari&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=lMxeUb7KGOLP0QXDjoGoBw&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=320&bih=356#

When I was in my 20s people said I looked like Sophie Ellis Bextor. Now I am 32 no one says it any more sad

WorraLiberty Fri 05-Apr-13 14:16:29

I don't have a lookalike but my eldest DS is the absolute double of Rylan from X Factor grin

He hates it and even shaved his carefully groomed facial hair off...but it's made no difference. He's still the spitting image.

ShirazSavedMySanity Fri 05-Apr-13 14:16:52

Kim Wilde. Rock and indeed Roll.

SisterMonicaJoan Fri 05-Apr-13 14:17:39

In my younger, carefree days I was often told I look like Louise Wener from the band Sleeper. Does anyone even know who she is???

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 05-Apr-13 14:19:51

Yes I do she was very pretty smile

WafflyVersatile Fri 05-Apr-13 14:20:45

WitchOfEndor Fri 05-Apr-13 14:23:03

In my younger and thinner days I was once accosted by a drunk Glaswegian who said I looked like Posh Spice. He was so drunk that for the first few minutes (he was persistent) I thought he was saying I looked Polish!

SisterMonicaJoan Fri 05-Apr-13 14:34:29

There is a woman who works in my local Aldi who looks like Will Ferell though! And her HAIR is what makes the comparison so excellent!

cocolepew Fri 05-Apr-13 19:51:37

My ex used to say I looked like the singer from Primal Scream, his name escapes me atm.

Dh says I look like Beaker from the Muppets.

I want to look like a young Debbie Harry envysad

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 05-Apr-13 19:52:32

cocolepew Fri 05-Apr-13 20:14:17

Bobby Gillespie, that's the lead singer from Primal Scream.

NorbertDentressangle Fri 05-Apr-13 20:30:23

ROFL - I just put my passport photo into the link posted by Calebria and I've come to the conclusion that it just randomly selects 5 celebrities of any gender, ethnicity, age etc as mine were:

Queen Latifah
Naomi Campbell
Susan Sarandon
Justin Beiber ( WTF? )
Monica Bellucci

Don't think theres any danger of me being 'outed' by any friends who might be reading this and recognise me from that selection !

foslady Fri 05-Apr-13 20:31:23

Horrible isn't it Shakey......

MooMooSkit Fri 05-Apr-13 20:32:35

digerd Fri 05-Apr-13 20:44:14

My DH looked like John Nettles when he was in Bergerac(sp?)
When young, people said I looked like Margot Fonteyn - the famous ballerina

My DM was the image of Jean Simmons - I am not unfortunately.

ParadiseChick Fri 05-Apr-13 21:17:22

I get Anastasia when I'm blonde or nana miskouri when I'm brunette. People aren't that imaginative when it comes to lookalikes for the bespectacled

soontobeburns Fri 05-Apr-13 21:33:40

I say melissa Mccarthy grin

bee169 Fri 05-Apr-13 22:01:28

HomeEcoGnomist Fri 05-Apr-13 22:23:06

In the casting of famous people who will play me and my colleagues in the musical about our workplace, this is our selection:

Me - Anne Hathaway (will take that and run before anyone changes their mind!)
Lovely colleague = Martine McCutcheon (sp?)
One of our managers = Olly Murs
Another manager = Herr Flick from Ello Ello
Big boss = Crocodile Dundee

Good looking crew, no?! gringrin

LadyKatherine Fri 05-Apr-13 22:33:49

I have tried three different photos on that site now and have come to the conclusion my dm adopted me from Meryl Streep because she keeps coming up. confused

Bullincathkidston Fri 05-Apr-13 22:53:08

Mirandahmm im sure its because im tall and not svelte like. My hair is thicker and longer though!

TooMuchJD Fri 05-Apr-13 23:32:43

Sue Perkins.....DS even points and says "mummy on the telly" [sigh]

redpanda13 Fri 05-Apr-13 23:41:24

In my younger days I used to get Darlene from Roseanne or Katie Rogers from Brookside. Strangers used to shout Katie at me.
When older I used to get told I looked like Kate Middlemiss. Since having DD the only lookalike was an app that told me I resembled Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin

Iheartcows Fri 05-Apr-13 23:48:11

When I was younger with dyed ginger hair I got told I looked like Scully from the X files.
These days I don't look like anyone except my mother hmm

I hate being plain sad

StuntGirl Fri 05-Apr-13 23:51:56

Gillian Anderson is stunning, I'd love to be compared to her!

MonaLotte Fri 05-Apr-13 23:57:44

I was mistaken for Toni Colette (Muriel's Wedding/Mum in Sixth Sense) at the airport. I was quite chuffed with that.

theweeyin Fri 05-Apr-13 23:59:51

Years ago when i worked in a restaurant customers ALWAYS used to say 'has anyone ever told you.... you like Sandra Di Marco' (from Eastenders)

A few of my friends still call me Sandra, and I answer to it!!

Bartlebee Sat 06-Apr-13 00:01:38

I get Natalie Wood & Kate Beckinsale.

But also have been told I look like Rowan Atkinson shock

Miranda fucking hart

Orville. Yes, the green duck.

ItsOkayItsJustMyBreath Sat 06-Apr-13 00:31:41

I was with a look-a-like agency in my early twenties as an Audrey Hepburn look-a-like.

Now I have a touch of the Martine McCutcheon about me hmm

Doodledumdums Sat 06-Apr-13 00:37:59

Nana Mouskouri and Charlotte Church...though they look nothing like each other! I actually got asked for my autograph once because someone thought I was Charlotte Church...bit ridiculous, I really look nothing like her IMO!

My DH regularly gets told he looks like James McAvoy. I think that's why I fell in love with him, I've always fancied James McAvoy!

SanctiMOMious Sat 06-Apr-13 00:59:26

ive been told i look like roan atkinson too. i wonder if we look alike bartlebee. funny, that stang as imo my uncle and cousin look like him so i couldnt jyst forget it! been told julianne moore twice. how different is that !!? id love the computer software to merge their faces .

OkayHazel Sat 06-Apr-13 01:33:21

People tell me Kristen Stewart constantly. I have long dark and hair and perpetual bitch face, so maybe its not far off.

Dawn French, all the time. I have a fat body and pretty face situation.

clattypatty Sat 06-Apr-13 01:55:14

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

I seemingly look like the chucky doll according to an ex-flatmate's friend.

I am short, had short hair then too, but no scars,yeah thanks for that - I can't really remember what the insulting bastard looked like.

Minimoog Sat 06-Apr-13 02:42:01

Dawn French (I just mentioned this on another thread wierdly! I am not obsessed with this!) I went to the Comedy Store in London for a night out with friends a couple of years ago, and when I was on my way home I got asked for autographs Ha ha! (I gave them as well... who gives a toss? Not my fault...) wink

QOD Sat 06-Apr-13 02:50:56

Old people say I look like Elaine Page, I ruddy do!! Back when she was in her 30's/40's though

From the celebrity link, my match was only 52% to care blanchett, I also scored 50% match to Richard Dreyfus. I am not a balding man very photogenic obviously. I'm weeping with laughter at that .

DH looks like Sean penn, taller and heftier version

mrsXsweet Sat 06-Apr-13 03:55:50

Once I got told I looked like Audrey Hepburn- I clung onto this for a long time! As a teenager I wanted to be compared to Natalie Imbruglia ( circa 'torn') and had my hair cut short and wore combats and lipgloss.
It has been suggested I look like Carrie Anne Moss (woman from the matrix).

Minimoog Sat 06-Apr-13 03:56:34

That link just told me I was a 70% match to Renee Zellweger (erm..?) but also a 70% match to Dustin Hoffman. Ok then! I have to say I look more like Hoffman than Zellweger... confused

sherazade Sat 06-Apr-13 07:39:44

My siblings often called me Mona Lisa when we were growing up.
They also likened me Addam's family daughter Wednesday (played by christina ricci).
can you sense a theme here?
on a positive, kinder people have compared me to Demi Moore, natalie portmann, kate middleton hahaha

Chipstick10 Sat 06-Apr-13 08:35:21

Annette Benning and elkie brooks. Eh?

SoftKittyWarmKitty Sat 06-Apr-13 12:22:12

That celeb pic site says I look 90% like Angelina Jolie hmm. I look nothing like Angelina Jolie. If only. grin

Chloe Sevigny a couple of times in the past

SanctiMOMious Sat 06-Apr-13 13:27:48

I've a friend who looks like Chloe Sevigny and her sister is the spit of Maggie Gyllenhaal.

DolomitesDonkey Sat 06-Apr-13 14:19:15

I've been told Philippa forester and Vanessa feltz. I've also been told phil Collins - from a beautiful (foreign) man who believes this is a compliment. confused

Beckamaw Sat 06-Apr-13 14:31:58

I used to work with a guy who told me I was 'a cross between Hattie Jacques and Myra Hindley'.
A pair of beauties he picked there. Twat!

Bartlebee Sat 06-Apr-13 17:15:02

Bloody hell, that website said I look like Kate Middleton, Winona Ryder, ashley judd and Victoria Beckham. Slightly insulted by last one!

SanctiMOMious Sat 06-Apr-13 18:21:50

wow, every photo gave me totally different answers. if i'd got the same suggestion twice i'd believe it. who is brittany snow? i had her, and she was the highest percentage i got, but she is much younger and blonder than i am. i also had a few black people, and men, and actually black men (danny glover and somebody else too) confused is there ANYTHING to this at all?? or is it just randomly matchng faces!!

BlackMini Sat 06-Apr-13 18:36:53

My incredibly drunk colleague told me I look like Kate Middleton.

I'll take that.

SanctiMOMious Sat 06-Apr-13 18:42:11

I thnk quite a lot of people look a bit like KM. (not me, I look 78% like Michael Keaton confused )

EllieArroway Sat 06-Apr-13 18:45:35

Penelope Cruz, apparently. Apparently I have the same "strong features". Hmmm. Cannot see it myself.

But I also look like an entire nation of people, it seems. I have lost count of the number of friends who have been to Italy and say that they kept doing double takes and seeing me everywhere.

I think it's all down to having very dark hair and eyes - my heritage is actually Irish though, not Spanish/Italian as far as I know.

BelleEtLaBaby Sat 06-Apr-13 18:53:19

I look like Kate Middleton, only quite a bit fatter. And I'm pregnant. And I've had Hyperemesis. My work colleagues call me Duchess. And I sound posh, even though really I'm not.

Am I actually her, do you think? ;)

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

HolyMackerel Sat 06-Apr-13 18:57:51

My DH looks a tiny little bit like Tim Henman and we have had people come up to him in the street insisting he is Tiger Tim and just won't admit it confused

IAmNotAMindReader Sat 06-Apr-13 19:02:01

In my late teens someone once told me I looked like Gloria Estefan.

More recently I was showing a friend how grey my hair had got at the sides and pulled it up and plonked it on the top of my head to accentuate it.

My friend said I looked like Miriam Margolyes hmm. She's a good 40 years older than me. I don't think I'm doing this aging thing very well grin

Rebecca Adlington, she's from the next town to me as well! There is a pic of her in our local Toby when she won the Olympic golds and we do look very much alike! My DH says I look like her if she'd spent a week in Greggs shock cheeky blighter!

znaika Sat 06-Apr-13 19:23:57

I used to look like Milla Jovovich, always mistaken for her and everyone can see the resemblance- now sadly I look like her mother or possibly even her grandmother. DD, however, God love her, thinks I look like Mr Bean hmm

Frizzbonce Sat 06-Apr-13 19:26:44

A mate of mine was once told by a director she looked like a Great European writer. She was just starting to look pleased when the director said: 'Yes - you look exactly like Bertolt Brecht.'

PipsWife Sat 06-Apr-13 19:34:41

Bianca off-of Eastenders!

It was bad enough aged 14 (ish) when everyone shouted "Ricky!" at me at school but then she went and returned to the show when I was 29 (ish) Luckily I've aged better and my husband says I'm a prettier version (I hope so!) but my mum says I do look like her when I cry!! grin

Ooh, ooh, SanctiMOM, we are twinsies! According to that website, I too look like Danny Glover and Brittany Snow. Also Chris Rock, Sidney Poitier, Stephen Spielberg, Roman Polanski and... Mikhail Gorbachev.

grin grin grin grin

rubydoobydoo Sat 06-Apr-13 20:21:36

I just uploaded my photo to that link and I'm 70% Madonna, and 69% Celine Dion and 69% FRED DURST????!!! confused

In real life I'm regularly told I look like Drew Barrymore (I wonder if the other person who said that looks like me?), and also had several times "That girl with the dog from Britain's Got Talent" - the girl, not the dog I hope!

I've just started wearing glasses and have had Nana Mouskouri more than once in the last couple of weeks (probably as I have long dark hair).

Orangerevel Sat 06-Apr-13 20:29:08

Pam Ayres or Cherie Blair, nice!

doyouwantfrieswiththat Sat 06-Apr-13 20:56:15

Cathy Burke + Sue Perkins + a bit of Alan Carr....gorgeous

SanctiMOMious Sat 06-Apr-13 21:33:15

I can picture you clearly shadows

I got sidney poitier as well!

I have to admit though, I put in Julianne Moore's photo from google images and she doesn't look like Julianne Moore! Julianne Moore looks like Monica Belucci. confused

SneezingwakestheJesus Sat 06-Apr-13 21:36:52

I get told I look like Meg from Family Guy :/

A lot.

BaconAndAvocado Sat 06-Apr-13 22:25:33

Bad days- Anneka Rice

Good days - some woman on a Tena lady advert ( so my kindly chum tells me.....)

SanctiMOM, you are Sidney Poitier lookalike too? We are totally twins. Very, very pretty twins grin.

Just made DP do it... He apparently looks like Danny Glover, Steven Spielberg (are he and I also twins?), Matthew Perry, Richard Gere and Michael Douglas. Also Tara Reid and Tyra Banks grin.

twitchycurtains Sat 06-Apr-13 23:37:33

my close friend swears I look like Kirstie Allsopp, I think she needs to get her eyesight tested as the only thing we may have in common is perhaps a dress size (debateable) but I am a completely different race to Kirstie Allsopp.

WeeBoobs Sat 06-Apr-13 23:41:49

I used a lookalike app on my phone and was told I look like Woody Allen confused

My DP found it hilarious and posted it all over FB hmm

cheesesarnie Sat 06-Apr-13 23:43:01

dp says i look like princess fiona- when she was an ogre.

Repeatedlydoingthetwist Sat 06-Apr-13 23:53:56

I get Jamie Lee Curtis and have done for years, from multiple sources. I've never once been able to see it for myself though. For a start I have extremely large curly hair...

SleepOhHowIMissYou Mon 08-Apr-13 17:20:45

I change my hair a lot and have been compared to/mistaken for:
80's = Kim Wilde smile
90's = Anna Friell grin
00's = Jennifer Saunders hmm
10's = Sarah Millican sad

Father Time's a cruel mo-fo
