I was talking to my flatmates the other night (as well as discussing which celebrities we'd like to bone) about who we've been told we look like, celebrity-wise. I've been told I look like TONS of celebrities. None of whom look remotely the same. And I have never particularly thought i resemble ANY of them...
So then we got to discussing those "celebrity look-a-like" websites you can upload a picture into online and have it tell you who you allegedly look the most like. I've done a lot of these in my time - I'm bored and online A LOT - and I was telling them I found it weird how many black, Latino or Eastern-European celebrities I tend to be compared to seeing that I'm pretty much 100% Scottish.
So since it's Friday night and I'm procrastinating rather than doing a project I need to have done for tomorrow (in theory, it's actually a FUN project but the minute I decide I HAVE to do something, it suddenly becomes "not fun" anymore), I decided to do a little experiment.
I've chosen three pictures of myself, fed them into the My Heritage celebrity collage generator, and saw what celebrities are paired up with me in terms of highest percentage of facial recognition. Fun, right?
So let's delay no longer. Bring on picture numero uno . . .
1. Elisha Cuthbert
3. Eva Longoria
4. Anne Hathaway
5. Tata Young
6. Cheryl Tweedy
7. Carol Vorderman
8. Amanda Seyfried
9. Aya Matsuura
10. Sharon Stone
First of all, who is Krisdayanti when she's at home??? (Okay, I've looked it up and I THINK she's some sort of singer?)
Secondly, I REALLY don't like Elisha Cuthbert so being told I look like her? Not a compliment.
Carol Vorderman is like OLD. Although she CAN do incredible maths in her head (my mental arithmetic sucks ass) AND looks better in a bikini than I do. Oh well...
Okay, let's see what happens when I upload picture number two . . .
1. Renee Zellweger
2. Vanessa Marcil
3. Rachael Leigh Cook
4. Natalie Imbruglia
5. Kate Hudson
6. Famke Janssen
7. Adriana Karembeu
8. Stacy Ferguson (Fergie)
9. Ali Landry
10. Jennifer Lopez
Once again, number one on the list is not someone I would want to be compared to. Lovely.
Secondly, here is an oddly weird fact. I have this joke about how me and Rachael Leigh Cook are twins separated at birth as we were both born on the 4th October 1979. The fact that, according to this we are an 83% match in terms of facial recognition . . . should I be heading to the States to claim we've been separated at birth and perhaps claim some money off her???
Okay, last but not least, step up picture number three . . .
1. Jenna Elfman
2. Liz Hurley
3. Scarlett Johanssen (grrr)
4. Rachael Leigh Cook (again!!!)
5. Krista Allen
6. Lacey Chabert
8. Anna Paquin
9. Tata Young
10. Paz Vega
Okay, the twin theory is increasing with me and Rachael. I have another repeat offender in the case of Tata Young. I haven't even looked up who she is, but I love the fact her name is "Tata". I wonder if it's her real name.
So what do you think? Can you see ANY resemblance??? And how can I look 83% like Rachael Leigh Cook, Kate Hudson, Natalie Imbruglia AND Famke Janseen . . . WHEN NONE OF THEM LOOK REMOTELY LIKE ONE ANOTHER!!!
And can you imagine if one of THEM put their picture into the generator and somehow came out with ME as a match? I'd be fuming if I was them. Hahaha.
Who have YOU been told you look like? Or, if you've ever tried this little "game" yourself, what results did you get? I'd love to know... ;)
