So the new facebook fad is to change your profile picture to a photo of a famous person you’ve been told you resemble.
People tell me I look like people all the freaking time.
And I don’t really think I look like most of them.
It all started my freshman year of high school, one of my good friends in band/drama decided that I looked EXACTLY like Idina Menzel and could not get over it.
Idina. Broadway actress. Elphaba in Wicked, Maureen in Rent.
One day our other friend overheard one of the many conversations we had, and she chimed in that she thought I looked like the Scarecrow from Batman Begins when I smiled.
Not sure which version of the Scarecrow they were talking about, hahaha.
After that, the comparisons came PILING in.
Here are some of the ones I can remember:
[as we’re leaving the theatre after watching Nacho Libre]: “HEY! You kind of look like that nun! She was hot.” AWK.
“You look like Tina Fey when you wear your glasses. Or Sarah Palin. Whichever is more flattering.” K…thanks…
Lea Michelle [and her character in GLEE is named Rachel. That reinforces the comparison.]
So apparently if someone is brunette or has a prominent nose or a BIG smile, I look like them.
I still don’t get it.
