Has anyone told you look like someone else?

Who was it and are you flattered? What were the similarities and differences?

  • I was once told I look like Winona Ryder because we both have "angel faces". I don´t think I look like her because I have long blond hair (though I was a brunette when I got told that) but we both have big eyes and full lips, so maybe that´s why. I was flattered because I think she is gorgeous.

    Then, another time, my best friend told me I reminded her of a Barbie doll. I wasn´t flattered with that one, I actually got a little mad.

    And only a couple of months ago someone told me I looked like ths girl because of the haircut:

  • Ya my teacher but it was a past student id never seen,I wasn't flattered,since I don't know if it was a compliment

  • Everyone tells me I look like Nicole Kidman. I guess I have a similar complexion, but I don't really understand why so many people see such a strong resemblance.

  • A guy once rejected me because apparently I look exactly like his cousin, hahaha.

  • Yes, I've been told plenty of times that I look like the i-carly chick. Nah, I wasn't flattered nor offended.

  • Lol I have gotten called a lot of things that don't even look like me at all.

    Madea-big glasses

    Steve urkel- big glasses

    Beyonce- Facebook bufoonery!

    Sharon leal- my mom, gag

    Ashley banks from fresh prince- my friend...(buffoonery)

    Jill scott- gag bufoonery


    I don't remember all of the so called look alikes but I damn sure know I look like myself. I like to be told I look good or bad all based on my appearance not compared to others.

  • this is weird but princess jasmine LOL... or they say I look like this girl they knew from venezuela lol or they just say I look familiar .

  • When I was 18 (a couple months ago) I was told that I looked like Lindsay Lohan when she was in the Parent Trap. She was like 13 in that movie so I was a little annoyed. I don't really get how that girl thought that, though. One, I was 18. Two, I'm not nor have I ever been ginger. I'm a blonde.

    I was told that I have Kim Kardashian's ass. I feel pretty weird about that because a lot of people are very split on whether it is a good ass or not.

    • it's slap worthy ;)

  • I've been told that I resemble someone else a grand total of twice: from a friend, and from my family members who say that I look like my great-grandmother (I count taht as "once" because it's the same comparison over and over).

    The comparison from my friends was sort of unflattering lol - I guess I looked like a girl who wasn't very smart..."but then you opened your mouth and I saw that that wasn't the case at ALL with you" (thank God). Sigh.

    I'm a mix of a *lot* of different backgrounds - mostly European, but I've had people think I'm Syrian, Egyptian, Libyan (once), German, American of course, etc. I guess I don't really look like anyone - more like a mixture of people.

  • I Carly... :(

  • Nope! I haven't been compared to anyone ha ha I don't think I resemble anyone :)

  • I was told that I look like Lindsey Lohan by a drunk guy and another VERY drunk guy said I looked like a korean actress. I look like neither...I thought it was very funny though.

    • Who do YOU look like?

  • Remember the land before time? Ducky that green small thing? Yeah once some bastard compared me to that and I don't think I would ever be flattered by that. I'm also always compared to one of my best friends which people think we're twins.

  • nope nobody yet

    • Well obviously just look at your picture lol Jk ; p

    • hahahaha that's why I put it up :P

  • Yes, a girl in my high school , she was like my twin

    Same body, same eyes, same nose, same height, but different lips hers are bigger and I looked younger. She was the popular bad girl and I was a geek haha.

    I used to walk around and people kept asking me if I'm her twin sister, they even call me by her name and same thing happened to her hahaha it got annoying to the point of I hated . I wasn't flattered or anything, I just didn't care but it was nice that she was my twin haha, I always wanted a twin sister. Some still think that she is my sister.

  • Demi lovato, flattered kinda, and we have same light brown eyes but I'm slim kinda have a cuvy. My chin is round not a heart shape like hers.my smile and eyes say I look like her

  • adele. because apparently we have the same eyebrows, eyes, face shape, and high cheekbones.

  • yes a filipino girl named heart evangelista.. not really flattered cause I don't see any resemblance

  • It happened so often but 90 percent of the time I have never seen those people whom they say look so much like me.I counted and so far about 30 of them look so much like me according to them.Lol.

    Strangers on the streets ever tapped me on the shoulder because they mistook me for their long lost friend or ex-girlfriend.Lol.

    The funniest part was that my dad mistook another lady on the street for me and wondered why I was doing there.Lol.

    Also, some people think that I look like two of our local actresses.One of the actresses was the champion in a beauty pageant but I don't want to look like them because I don't like their character.Anyway,I think my friends are exaggerating.

  • Yes. They told me I look like one chick at school. I always thought she was so pretty and I don't think I look like her. Its an offense to her to compare me with her.

  • i've been getting Rob Gronkowski a lot lately. I don't really see it at all, but we must have some common feature. similar smile, eye shape, and eyebrows I suppose, but he has brown eyes and mine are blue. and I'm a big guy, but not 6'6 260 big. anyone I've asked to confirm is like "not at all", but those who see it are pretty convinced. the warehouse manager for the company I work for met for the first time and just goes "WHOA! MINI-GRONK!", haha. doesn't bother me, because I'm a Pats fan and dude crushes a$$ like you read about, hahaha.
