Question Of The Week

I don't like the word "doppelganger". It makes me uncomfortable.

So, let's go with "look-alike". Shall we?

I've gotten several over the years........mostly, Julia Stiles.


Some Reese, too. Definitely a chin thing.


And, if you ask my BFF from college, Doogie Howser is the winner. She still - to this day - dies laughing each time she sees a picture of him.

While in Cabo a few years ago, her husband stopped me mid-sentence and proclaimed, "Oh my God. I just saw Doogie. It's true." Fantastic.


Obviously, I'm compared to people with fair complexions and strong jaw lines.

After showing this to Blake, he said, "And, uh, you forgot one thing." Then, he thumped me on the forehead.

My biggest claim to fame? While in Aspen 13 years ago, someone thought I was Nicole Kidman. I tell you no lies, people. It's true. That was also at my skinniest....the glory days.

***So, who are you compared to? Are you flattered or disgruntled with the comparisons?

People always say I look like anybody and everybody that has curly hair. People say, "Don't I know you from somewhere?" I have to always say no it's just that you probably know someone with curly hair. I get it all the time!!! It's weird. I wish someone would say I look like someone famous.

Heather said...

I used to always get that girl on Northern Exposure when it was on, way back when... on every flight someone would tell me that.

Now I get Jessica Simpson (SAY WHAT???) - don't get that AT ALL! I also get Reese once in a blue moon - don't see that at all either.

Finally a QOTW that I don't have to think hard about! I think I'm a 1st time commenter on QOTW!

Kim said...

I can see the similarities in and you should be flattered except for the Doggie one :).

Many people have told me I have a smile like the Joker. I can see it, kind of, but I hate it.

Malinda said...

I don't see it AT ALL, but I've been told I looked and sounded like Bernadette Peters and told I look like Elizabeth Perkins. I think it's the chin thing with Elizabeth Perkins, but other than that I just don't see it.

I'm don't think being told you sound like Bernadette Peters is a good thing by the way.

BrownEyedGirlsMom said...

Random people tell me I look like someone they know. Not anyone famous but just someone familiar. It's weird!

Pam said...

I can definitely see Julia and Reese together. Neither one by them self though. I think they are both pretty so it should be a compliment. I don't see Doogie Houser.

I've never been compared to a celebrity before. I'm unique! HA!...or ugly!

If the shoe FITZ said...

I remember at P1K you showed me a pic of Doogie you found online and just about died laughing.
I only look like my Momma...nobody ever famous.....I think we should get ready Coco's rant of who she looks like...

Moni said...

I have been told I look like Katie Holmes and Martina McBride my whole adult life....could be worse, right? I will just giggle at Doogie and not actually comment because I love you so much!

And in preparation for Coco, I would like to go on record that I don't think she looks like Maggie Gyllenhall (or however you spell it).

MamaSue said...

In the 70s people told me I looked like Natalie Wood. That was a long time ago. Then about 15 years ago, I was told that I looked like Mariah Carey by two different people just days apart. I was about 50 pounds thinner and oh way younger than I am now.

Sara said...

Several years ago, I used to get Katie Couric a lot. I never understood that at all.

I also used to get Jennifer Aniston a lot. I think it was the hair color and style. Since I darkened my hair, I don't get it anymore.

I can see you in Reese and Julia both. Doogie??? For real??? Now, that's funny.

Carrie Darney said...

Not since I was little...but Punky freaking Brewster. Ugh. I mean, only when she was little (you know, before she had boobs). Basically when she was a rag a muffin...yep, that's it!

I would love to be told I look like someone cute and famous...

Katherine C. said...

If Julia Stiles and Doogie had a love child, it would be Casey!

Katherine C. said...

Oh and I have been told Penelope Ann Miller, Blossom (yikes!, a "mature" Rachel Evan Wood and most insulting, Leann Rimes (that was by my loving husband).

Sarah said...

No one...except a couple people once said some girl from Lost...the blonde girl..don't even know her name. I'll take it no matter what!

Momma to the A's said...

I have to agree with Julia and Reese together. Although I have never seen you in person, so...

They both are so pretty so I would take that as a compliment, fo' sho'!!

I have gotten told in the past that I look like Geena Davis. Haven't gotten it in a long while though.

Sassafrass Jane said...

I can TOTALLY see Julia. Totally. I can't believe I never thought of that. I can see Reese, too. Love Blake's forehead thump.
I get Denise Richards more and more.
The other day at the perfume counter this dumb lady wouldn't shut her yap. "Doesn't she look like Charlie Sheen's first wife?" Then she asked my mom, "Who was Charlie Sheen's first wife? She looks just like her!" (My mom of course has no idea who the hell that is) Then she starts pestering me. I finally said, "DENISE RICHARDS. SHE'S A SLUT, LEAVE ME ALONE." And she did.
I need Xanax.

aunt caroline said...

Funnny... I've gotten all those except Doogie (thank God). My fav is Reese. Any association with Jakey Poo is fine with me! Sigh....

FROGGITY! said...

doogie houser?! don't see it!!

reese? definitely see it!

i get disgruntled by it. i got phoebe cates all of the time when i was younger. and christina applegate with black hair (i actually do see that one). who knows?! and vivien leigh?! i dunno...

merrilee said...

Can't say I see Doogie, Casey. Funny enough, I am often told I look like Reese, too. I always say it must be my pointy chin and blonde hair, but who knows. I take it as a compliment.

Neal said...

I've been told I look like Fat Chandler from Friends. I guess that's better than the Heroin-Addicted Chandler.

Allyson and Dave said...

I used to get Jennifer Love Hewitt a lot when I was younger. But then in my early twenties when Dark Angel was on tv I got Jessica Alba all the time.

Brittny said...

i have no idea how i kept that snorted laugh in when i saw the pic of doogie, but i did it. brandon is trying to sleep and i'm bored so i got online. but that is HA-LARIOUS!!! i had a drunk guy tell me i looked like sandra bullock, but it was also dark and like i said, he was drunk. (of course i'd LOVE to look like her!!! but don't think i do) i've been told by several people that i look like the chick in that football movie starting keano reeves???? yeah, don't know her either. and forgive any misspellings. can't see as i type either. need to just go to bed now.

Merry Mack said...

I also think doppleganger is a wacko word. I can't say that I have a look alike. Back in college and Melrose Place was what everyone watched, I sometimes got that I looked like Sydney. Who wouldn't mind that kind of comparison?

You? Doogie? Really?

Kelly Beatty said...

Honestly, you ripped this one from Facebook...but I love it. In college I was told I looked like Courtney Love. Not the retouched, post-plastic surgery but the roots-showing, trashtastic, Hole lead singer, Courtney Love.

Oh, and at the post office the other day, a lady looked VERY excited to see me. Then, she said, "Oh, I thought you were somebody else. Does anybody ever tell you, you look like "insert name here"...she's on the local news.

You look like Reese! Didn't somebody once tell you, you looked like Billy Corgan???

Carrie Darney said...

I did just think of someone that I was told I look like...don't laugh.

The "Free Falling" song from Tom Petty? Well the video there is a girl that is skateboarding. She looks like me. I actualy think so too...a skater girl..nice.

Oh and Angelina Jolie...

~KS said...

No one... I have no doppleganging abilities. And doppleganger? What is that? I get what it means but where did it come from and why??

People think my friend Sarah and I are sisters... I also get confused for my friend Heather. But no famous people.

I can very much see the Julia Stiles resemblance... and Nicole Kidman? Awesomeness... you should've said yes and signed an autograph and played it up.

The Lenzers said...

i always get lindsey lohan...not even close people! they think all red heads should look alike
