I got to thinking about this when I saw the crazy look-alike Keira hair. I don’t think I would have ever asked this question if it had not been for three words. Tiffany Amber Thiessen.
Let me just start by saying that I, personally, think I look nothing like her. In fact, I have a friend, Heather, who looks FAR more like her than I. I got the TAT comparison A LOT when I was younger.
At 13, a group of boys stopped me in a grocery store, giggling, asking if I was “Kelly.” Seriously. They wanted my autograph. And it didn’t stop there.
Freshman year of college, people in my dorm called me “Valerie.”
My dad, however, has always likened me to Sandra Bullock. I think because he’s knows I am loveably goofy.
In college, I went through a long period of people saying I looked like Nicki Hilton. No, seriously.
In response to my totally confused expression, I usually got an “oh, well it’s probably because she dyed her hair and you’re thin.”
These days, I get a lot of Angela Lindvall.
What about you?
I’ve always found this interesting, as I WANT to be thought of as attractive and it’s cool to have people say you look like someone you believe to be cute. But, seeing as how none of these four women look alike, and I don’t think I look like any of them…….
I will continue to try and not be flattered.
