Celebrity Look Alikes

In a complete effort at avoiding work, I plugged my photo into one of those what-celebrity-do-you-look-like thingamajigs at myheritage.com.

Here I used a late-night, slightly tipsy photo of myself:

Apparently, when I have my liquor on, I look most like the former president of Sri Lanka.

Wearing my glasses got me matched up with a bunch of glasses-wearing celebs.

Jack Osbourne and Philip Seymour Hoffman? Really? I'm going to have to remember to pluck my chin hair more often. But I can dig looking like Janeane Garofalo; I always thought she was adorable.

When I brush my hair, I get some hotter-looking celeb matches.

I dunno. Do you think Gary Oldman looks enough like me to be my brother? And my teenage crush on River Phoenix now seems a bit narcissistic.

And when I'm eating eggs, I look most like Sophia Bush or Ariel Sharon.

Seriously, this is a ridiculous piece of software. By manipulating what images I upload, I can match myself to either the Olsen Twins or Carrot Top.

Update: Mom wanted to get in on the fun, so we uploaded one of her, too.

Rita Hayworth, not bad! But Senator Paul Simon? I'm just not seeing it. Here's Ted:

Hugh Jackman and John Candy.

I'm kind of stunned that Eddie Murphy is your celebrity lookalike.

And now I'm very very afraid of who I might match with.

Yeah, that one kinda surprised me, too. :-)

Gary Oldman is hot. Thanks for sharing this bit of fun.

I've been trying this! Here are some things for which you and your mom can thank your lucky stars:

1) Eminem is NOT one of your matches.
2) L. Ron Hubbard is NOT one of your matches.

This could give a girl a complex, y'know?

Soooo much fun! I'm totally going to torture the Fiance with this.
