Stardom? I never touch the stuff.

Have you ever been told you look familiar?  Have you ever been told by a complete stranger that you're a dead ringer for a celebrity?

I have.  

Yesterday, in fact.

There I am minding my own business at the local Spar Supermarket buying my weekly fruit, cereal bars and yoghurt for the lunch boxes, when this woman behind me the check out queue smiles at me.  

I thought either she's a loony or she's just being polite - so I smile back at her.  But...you know when someone stares at for you for just TOO LONG and you start feeling uncomfortable?  You know, like my post I made earlier in the week about staring into the back of someone's head until they turn around...yeah like that...

Handing my debit card to the cashier, I give Loony Woman a sideways glance and she's still grinning and staring into the side of my head.  Eventually she pipes up:  "I'm sorry but you remind me of someone".  I grinned at her and said "Oh?".  She looks at me for another couple of seconds and says: "That actress.. Julianne Moore!" and beams an expression that probably meant she was so fucking chuffed with herself for remembering the actress' name. 


All embarrassed, I say "Thank you very much, I think"  and yip she's still grinning...fucking loony toonz.

Now I know that Julianne Moore isn't a A-list actress and probably not the on the B-List either, but I am incredibly flattered when someone mentions this, because its not the first time someone has said it either.  And...I consider Julianne to be quite attractive (in ginger terms) and so its quite an honour to be told I look like her.

Have you ever been told you look like a celeb?  If so, who is it?

This week's Fawk Yous:

Fuck you to the Loony Woman who creeped me out by sideways staring me yesterday in the supermarket queue.

Fuck You to the bullies that influence my sweet wee Megan and try and turn her into a bully herself!  Little Fuckers, I'll knock their blocks off.

Fuck you all the chocolate Easter Eggs in the shops at the moment.  They are so tempting!  My thighs - My thighs!

I dunno...I'd think Julieanne is maybe B-list?

There actually is similiarity there. I have often been told my look alike is Sally Field :)

Not So Simply Single said...

You are so beautiful...more beautiful than that celebrity look alike!

Hey, LOVE those Prada shoes....actually, am lusting over here in Maui for them.

Shit, nowhere to wear such adorable faire!

NOT fair!

I've been compared to Ricky Martin and Dermot O'Leary.

But never a young Elvis.....sadly.

Melany said...

Urgh I often hear that I look like Steffi Graff. I don't think that is much of a compliment lol

Sausage Fingers said...

I have been compared to a hot dog!!

Boobies said...

I can totally see the similarities to Julianne..but you're way hotter!! Ummm...I don't think I resemble anyone..but sometimes if the cam catches me right, I like to think I look like Angelina. (Hey--I can pretend damnit!)

I LOVE that you linked up with Friday's Shoegasm...OMG! I love both pairs! Now who can we convince to buy them for us? ;)

Happy Fawkin Friday babe!

Andrew Green said...

You do look a bit alike....

Ami said...

You're more beautiful than she is... plus you're accessible. People can just walk up to you in the grocery store and stare.
;)

The shoes? Sorry. No. No fucking way. No no no no no.

Makes my feet hurt just to look at them. Plus, that kind of money? On shoes?

Nope.

My feet thank me.

:-D

I saw a resemblance as soon as I followed your blog. Hey, she's a hottie, deal with it!! :-)

I've been told a few times that I look like Jeff Golblum. And, when I was younger, aparently I looked like Nick Heyward out of a band called Haircut 100.

Everybody is drunk!!!

Have a great weekend!

I'd agree with Mrs. Indecisive...Julianne would definately be a 'B' list.

I've never been told that I look look any celeb, however...my dad's been told that he looks like Sean Connery (bald & grey) and I look a lot like my dad...well, without the bald part...

I can see where the looney was coming from. You do have a look of her. I think she's lovely anyway!

Some years ago I guy I worked with told me I had a smile like Bette Midler, and proceeded to nickname me Bette and that stuck all the time I worked there!

THUNDERCAT832 said...

I was told that I look like WHOOPIE GOLDBERG once..I cried for two days straight!

Copyboy said...

I personally think you have a little nicole Kidman in you. :) But yeah, I see the Julianne.

David L Macaulay said...

can see the resemblance - she's been Oscar nominated I think, definitely at least b-list.

When I had a beard my Gran thought I looked like Ricky Gervais... I shaved it off the next day

Curmudgeon said...

I used to look like Robert Redford. Now I look like Jabba the Hut.

Tοday, I went tο the beасhfront wіth my

old dаughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She plaсed the shell tο her eаr and screameԁ.
Theгe was а heгmіt cгab inside and іt pinched
