Question of the Day

Stolen from Amanda (Molly Shannon), who stole it from Lauren (Jodie Foster), who stole it from Clancy (Hayley Mills). Is there any celebrity whom you are often told you resemble?

I have one of those faces that never looks the same twice in photos, and people always swear I look like people I honestly cannot imagine how they think I resemble. The two I get most often are Dawn French and, weirdly, Björk. Both suggestions are more flattering than my ugly mug deserves, but in my opinion, I do look like Dawn French and nothing like Björk—although, admittedly, I do seem rather more like an impish Icelander in my goose gown. In any case, you can judge for yourself:

Dawn French and Shakespeare’s Sister

Björk and Shakespeare’s Sister

In both cases, I just found existing recent pictures of myself that were posed similarly to pictures I found of my alleged doppelgangers. Anyhow, how about you? Who are you told you look like?

UPDATE: Mr. Shakes has given me permission to post his most oft-cited resemblance.

David Morse and Mr. Shakes
