No one ever tells me I look like anyone.
At various points in my life, usually over a few margaritas, my girlfriends and I have played the celebrity doppelganger game. I'd sit eagerly while my pals gushingly dubbed each other Cameron Diaz or Courtney Cox or Mary-Louise Parker. But when it was my turn, everyone would fall silent. "Hmm, I don't know....," they'd trail off. "Who wants another drink?" And the game would be over.
But surely there was someone famous who looked like me! In search, I visited a website where you upload a picture of yourself and - based on similarity of features - it gives you your celebrity match. My closet match? Martin Short. I admit, I can see the resemblance.
In an acting class, my instructor Doug said we all have archetypes - relatable celebrity personas - we can use in our own work. While my classmate Stephanie's archetypes included diverse beauties like Stevie Nicks, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Meryl Streep, mine were harder to come by.
After great thought and consideration, Doug came up with just one - Katey Sagal.
And the movie looks cute too. Here's the trailer:
So tell me, who's your celebrity look-alike? Would love to hear.
