Oh, You Know Who You Look Like...
I am sure we have all experienced this at some point in our lives:
"You know who you look like?"
"You look just like [insert random relative/friend/celebrity that looks nothing like you here]...".
I don't know why this annoys me a little bit, and it really should be something that, at this point, glides right off my back. But I am always filled with a moment of curiosity as I await the answer. As the person flips through their mental Rolodex of possible matches, the only thing I think is...well, who?
Along with a whole list of other random people, here are my most "frequently told look alikes":
L-R: Rosario Dawson (my brother-in-law is convinced); Beyoncé (apparently one of my YouTube videos has generated a mass of "you look like Beyoncé'" comments -- go figure!); Scary Spice (this one is from elementary school...I guess because we had the same hair); Leona Lewis (my dad came across this Leona Lewis video--I overheard him saying to my mom, "That looks like Sophia..."); Tracee Ellis Ross (the hair and big eyes...); Tia & Tamara Mowry (my sister and I both got this one); Isabelle Adjani (an Algerian-French actress my French teacher said I looked like...yeah... I don't know about it.); Alice Smith (someone physically stopped me in the club--during my prehistoric clubbing days--on the way to bathroom to ask me, you know who you look like? Alice Smith! ...I had no idea who this Alice Smith person was at the time.).
And the last picture is me because that's who I really look like :-)
So, who have you gotten?!
