Aibu in thinking you prob shouldn't tell them? I have no idea whether I do look like her, and have certainly never been told so before. But we were at our first party last night since dd born, and just as dinner was starting, a very lively jumpy lady who was sitting at our table and had been chatting to me in her seat jumped up and whispered to me that I looked like tracy emin. She said "coming from me, that's a compliment". I don't really feel like it was though. She said it right after she found out I was married to dh, I think she had been set up with him in the past and he was not interested. Also apparently she has bipolar, which explains her manic behaviour otherwise all evening. But I felt like the comparison was meant to make me feel a bit bad - aibu?

I wouldn't be flattered, no. I suppose there are people who find her attractive though, so it perhaps was a compliment.

Ignore it...

Silly moo.

(not you,her)

I have no idea.

Put a photo of yourself up and we'll tell you if you do look like her.

It's not unreasonable of her to say you do if you do grin and without knowing if you do or not, how can we say if you are being unreasonable? grin

YANBU, she's not exactly a looker Lol.

Having said that, it doesn't mean you're not attractive...sometimes someone can just pull a quick expression that can put you 'in mind of' someone else if you see what I mean.

Kathy Burke said that the worst thing anyone ever said to her was "Don't take this the wrong way, but you look like Kathy Burke" grin

tracey emin

better pic here

and here

So, OP, DO you look like her?

Its kind of irrelevant given who it came from isn't it? If it was a good friend or even someone you vaguely knew, maybe that would be an issue but this was just a (probably) pissed stranger who possibly had an agenda to boot.
I'd forget about it.

I thought the last two were quite good one of her!

ok, the first one wasn't the best grin but I picked the best of the google images for the other two!

Can't put up a pic as in car. But if any comments are made on my looks it is normally to say I am pretty, and I usually hear Kirsty Gallagher. I like te, but she isn't really an oil painting (!)

tethersend Sun 07-Aug-11 16:04:51

It could be worse. She could have said 'Les Dawson'.

I have lost it I'm sure with age, but sure the shadows of pretty remain..

I know someone who looks like Tracey Emin and curiously enough have passing acquaintance with Tracey Emin. The lookie likey is younger more stunning version and is BEAUTIFUL. TE proper looks lovely when dressed up, but has an off day like the best of us.

bringmesunshine2009 Sun 07-Aug-11 16:06:54

What I mean is-I wouldn't take as an insult!

CurrySpice Sun 07-Aug-11 16:08:18

I don't think TE is unattractive at all. But I do think she often looks like she -could do with a wash isn't all that well groomed iykwim

DK I'm sure you're gawjus - take no notice

The best line I ever go was "You remind me of my ex wife" (never a good start surely!) "She had a horsey face too!" :D

deliakate Sun 07-Aug-11 16:09:04

Yes thanks gissa!

singforsupper Sun 07-Aug-11 16:09:22

Tracy Emin's looks come from her father having been descended from north African Sudanese slaves, and also the fact that she was a twin and had severe calcium deficiency through which she lost all her front teeth.

So there's nothing to be ashamed of, she is who she was born to be and that's beautiful.
