This week, Moma Rock picked the topic: Write about the celebrity people say you look like.
Before reading ahead, first see what everyone else had to say on this topic:
Mom of Many
It's funny that this topic came up, as I had been watching various episodes of "How I Met Your Mother" which focus on the characters having doppelgangers. However, theirs are not celebrities...well, maybe local celebrities (such as Mustache Marshall and Mexican Wrestler Ted).
In my case, I've had people tell me I resemble a certain actress famous for her roles in some of my favorite 80's movies. However, while she only carried one watermelon, I've carried three of what felt like watermelons over a five year span of time.
Yes, I look like Jennifer Grey, before the nose job that changed her whole face. (And you wonder why I wouldn't want to get a nose job!)
I definitely don't mind this comparison. Especially since she got to dance with the gorgeous (late) Patrick Swayze. Maybe the resemblance gave me hope at the time, that I'd meet someone who would find me attractive too. Oh, and she also got to kick Mr. Rooney in the face. Several times, I might add!
The funniest thing is that there was a time on Facebook where everyone was posting their celebrity doppelgangers as their profile pictures and I posted the above picture. I suddenly got comments asking if the picture was of me. That definitely confirmed what other people had told me.
Even though she's not as recognizable now, I'm glad I can help immortalize her "before" face.
Aside from this comparison, I was motivated to play Magenta at "Rocky Horror" performances because one girl told me I looked like her with my wild, frizzy hair. Then there were people who told me I looked like Little Orphan Annie, but mainly because I had lots of curls.
