Who is your celebrity look-a-like?

On various occasions I've been told I look like...

Marcia Gay Harden.

 Sandra Bullock.

Daphne Zuniga.
(That's a ride in the Way-Back Machine, huh?)

Sandra Bernhard.
(Always and only by drunk boys in gay bars.)

Dumplings, who have you been told you look like?

Isn't it fab when you are told you look like someone you either loathe or think is fuggly.

I have been told I look like

January Jones
Rosanna Arquette
This actress in Australia you would never have heard of.

All of your lookalikes are pretty cool.

Nigella Lawson! I was stoked xx

My Crafty Home Life said...

I have been told I look like Faye Dunaway (I don't see that one at all) and Diane Lane (God, I hope that one is true!).

Gabrielle | Savvy Home said...

Hahaha love it! I've gotten:

Avril Lavigne (in high school)
Zooey Deschanel (in college)
Amy Adams (now)

And it's always been directly related to hairstyles...

It's funny you should post this. When reading yours, or any other blogger's post, I read/hear it in a voice, not my own. I read/hear you as Rachel Maddow. Maybe it's from that tiny picture of you above, coupled with your insight and wit.
FYI...I don't know your political persuasion, but she is one of my heros, and very cute!...so it's a compliment...k

Raina Cox said...

Kathy - Another picture for me to add!

Actually, I have a very soft, small voice that does not fit with my personality or physicality at all. My DNA's little joke.

And I love La Maddow, so thank you for the compliment!

Nancy said...

Ive been told the same, about M.G Harden and Sandra Bullock. MAYBE YOU AND I look alike?

Daphne Zuniga! Remember her role in Spaceballs?

I've been told I look like Bjork, Lucy Liu (I look NOTHING like her, except for being half Asian) and Lou Diamond Phillips circa 1990. Bleurgh.

A coworker once asked me what celebrity he most resembled? He was thinking Richard Gere and I thought he looked more like Bert Convey. We didn't speak much after that.

I've been told I remind people of Andrew McCarthy all the way to Bill Maher.

Looking at your picture I can see similarities to all the wonderful women suggested.

I think the moral of the situation is that people see a spark of star quality or find you interesting enough to compare you to a celebrity and that is actually flattering.

So I accept the complement kindly as it was intended whether I agree with the comparison or not.

Love it! I get Cameron Diaz or Ashley Simpson (ha!)

Kerry Steele- Design du Monde said...

Nice look alike list, well, except the last one.
Years ago, when my hair was darker I got Isabella Rosselini quite often. Now I don't think I look like anyone famous. Maybe that is a good thing.

Unknown said...

At least once a month someone tells me I look like Kirsten Dunst.

Bethany Chase said...

Marcia yes, I can TOTALLY see that! And it is so funny you said that about your voice... I thought that about you, too.

Me, I get every dark-haired, fair-skinned, blue-eyed actress on earth, regardless of what her actual facial features look like. Courtney Cox, Zooey Deschanel, Liv Tyler, that Whitney chick, Mia Kirshner. Only one I ever thought was remotely accurate was Claire Forlani.

Kaille said...

Alfred E. Neuman :( I am not kidding....

I definitely see the Marcia Gay Harden resemblance. I went to school with her in Munich in the late 70's - very cool chica.

I love your blog. I was a long-time lurker, but for a while I wasn't able to access it and had given up - thought I'd try again the other day and was happily surprised to see my daily dose of fun was back!

Uncle Fester :-(

David said...

A lady I work with calls me Kiefer, I don't see it at all.



hush said...

Alanis Morrissette and Nikki Cox (college), Mariah Carey (10 years ago), and Mary-Louise Parker (now) - all of those women are way better looking than me so I'll take these comparisons as compliments.

Camilla @ Designalogue said...

My GBFF calls me Australia's answer to Sharon Stone & tags me in pics of her on Facebook! I love him so hard!
every woman deserves one of him in their lives!


Romi said...

When she was alive I was told constantly that I looked just like Princess Diana. After she died it was Ellen Degeneres. Go figure!

Camilla said...

Marcia Gay Harden has some spectacular eye brows going on in that pic!

Pam Kersting said...

Meryl Streep and Laura Linney for me, but I don't see it!

Margaret said...

Yes, you do look like MGH!

An insurance agent told me some years ago I looked like Rosanna Arquette. That was out of left field, but he was staring at my driver's license at the time.

My mom used to tell me I resembled Deanna Durbin (way before our time!). Recently, someone said I always reminded them of Elizabeth Taylor (yeah, they waited years to tel me that one).

My mirror tells me Phyllis Diller, which is not a bad thing, considering she rocked on all accounts.

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Ok, this is waaaay before most of your readers' time, but everyone used to tell me I looked like the Raintree girl. It was a moisturizer sold during the 90's. Sad.

Modern Country Lady said...

hahaha I love this post.. o- well.. I was told when I was younger that I looked like Romy Schneider ( a German actress ) ... thankfully I have not had her tragic life !!

Modern Country Lady said...

By the way, both Marcia Gay Harden and Sandra Bullock always play quite strong woman, so be proud of it ! I would rather resemble a strong woman than a sissy hahaha!

Raina Cox said...

Thanks to everyone for playing along!

Nancy - It would be my good fortune to be your cosmic twin.

cerebral e - I was just watching that movie the other day. I didn't see the resemblance at all.

Bethany Chase - Miz M., I can totally see the Claire Forlani comparison. She's smokin' as are you!

Kaille - Welcome back, my Darling!

Lorena said...

Previously I got Drew Barrymore, these days it's Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lawrence.

A Perfect Gray said...

that was so much fun. to think about and to read. I can't think of any recent comparisons made to me. I have full cheeks (which I HATE). Everyone says it's "cute" but I, of course, would much rather have those high cheekbones of the movie star set!

Ina Garten.

Acanthus and Acorn said...

I loved the pic of Marsha Gay Harden and that haircut is fantastic, so what a great look-alike. My husband says mine is Diane Lane- when her hair is longer. I've also heard Elizabeth Shue in the past. I don't see it , but isn'i that always the way!?

Sharon Brown said...

Catherine Bell when she was in Jag. I just looked up pictures of her and we both share an extra dose of totally unnecessary boobage as well.

home before dark said...

When I was younger and much thinner, I got Audrey Hepburn. Now with more years, pounds and gray hair, I get Judy Dench. Sigh....

Reggie Darling said...

I was once told by a drunk lesbian at a party that I reminded her of movie star. But she couldn't remember his name. Until about five minutes later, that is, when she remembered it was Phil Silvers! It was not a happy moment in my life...
