Some people, of whom I have met repeatedly, never remember who I am. Or ever having met or seen me. Ever. I have come to terms with the fact that I have a forgettable face. Or a generic one. I apparently look like lots and lots of people, and celebrities. Haven't really figgered that one out yet.
But back to the forgetting. I just think it's rude and maybe self centered. Sure, I can be as self absorbed as the next person, but very rarely to I forget someone's face. Maybe I am just a more visual person than most. I tend to remember people I've never spoken with, but have been in close proximity to. And remember every circumstance in which I have seen them. It's kinda creepy and stalkerish really.
Anywho, here are the people that I apparently look like (or the ones I can remember) in no particular order:This is me, in case you didn't know, it's from about a year ago. I am seriously lamenting the loss of my long hair.
Laura Prepone: That 70's show. When she went blond, I found the twin I never knew I had. It's kinda scary really.
Kim Bassinger: I got this one for the first time in junior high when I was in a scene from Fried Green Tomatoes in drama (I don't think I entirely understood the movie at that point). I also didn't know how to do my hair at that point and it was kinda frizzy. Back in the day when Kim was frizzy as well. I'm sure that's what sparked the comparison.
Karolina Korkova: Finally, a supermodel in the mix. It's flattering I suppose. But apparently more than one person thinks we are twins. I don't see it so much, and I'm pretty sure I would be the ugly twin in comparison.
Claire Danes: When Boz Lurman's Romeo & Juliet came out I was in high school. And had dyed my hair a dark strawberry blond. I was walking down the hall at school when some girl came racing after me yelling at her friend that I was Juliet. The rest is history.
Gillian Anderson: As much as I would enjoy the relation to Scully (X-Files was a family favorite at our house) I never understood this one. Now I see it a little more.
And whose this striking circa 90's model you may ask: Well, it's none other than my big sister, Jessica. I don't mind this one bit. People have mistaken us for one another quite a bit, not to mention thinking we are twins. We definitely look like sisters, but seriously people. And yes, she was a hot model. In Europe, lived with Molly Simms. The real deal.
I used to have like 15, but can't remember all of them now. I think maybe that I blocked the less fortunate comparisons from my memory. But there you have it. Generic. I also look like just about everybody's sister's best friend's dog's former owner. Or some like combo.
Who do I you think I look most like?
