    biggrin Who do you look like?

    You know how it is: we all get told we sort of look like someone famous. It's not always complimentary! It's nice when it is though.

    Me, I've been told I look like lots of people over the years: Johnny Depp, Dave Navarro, Nick Cave - kind of cool, thanks! Timothy Claypole, Mr Pink - not so much.
    Look them all up, merge them in a photo editor - and you'll have a picture that looks like a bad police sketch of me!

    Anyway - without posting pics of yourself, give us a mental idea of what you look like by telling us who you've been told you look like!

    One of the Beatles. And, because I always like to keep some vagueness about me online, I won't say which one.

    I used to get Bill Gates when I was younger.
    Now, nobody in particular - though there's a short window where if I don't shampoo my hair for exactly one day, and it's just the right length, I look startlingly like Neo before he entered the Matrix.
    That's all I can think of, at any rate.

    When I have a beard, people tell me I look like Seth Rogen. If I'm cleanshaven, I get Will Ferrell.

    Nobody really, but if I lost weight I'd have relatively classic Hollywood looks.

    Which is annoying, because I'm related to a relatively famous English playwright. Cousin twice removed or the like, sadly pretty much nobody my age has heard of him. Could at least have looked a bit like him, but noooooo.

    Ha! Similarly, I don't like to go posting my pic or using my real name everywhere - so I gave enough "dark haired guy with a beard" look-alikes to muddy the dataset.

    It's Ringo ain't it? I bet it's Ringo.

    Somebody on this very forum once compared me to Burt Reynolds. This was in reference to a photo of me with a mustache, though, which is definitely not me on the regular. Mustaches can be pretty risky when it comes to celebrity lookalikes, after all. You might wind up with Burt Reynolds... or you might end up with Michael Cera.

    Irish people mostly. I got compared to Peter Griffin when I was very overweight, then Mat Damon, recently I got compared to Connor Mcgregor by a stranger. So I look generically Irish.

    I look like the perfect mix (for flexible values of perfect) of Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone and Steven Seagal.

    With maybe a little Jack Black.

    Ive been told that I dont look like myself anymore at a Schools reunion (10 years).

    That hurt. Especially seeing who said it. :(

    Being told I look like a younger, bearded, slightly overweight Sam Neil on the other Hand....not too bad. :)

    Yeah, when people suddenly started telling me I looked like David Gahan, it was because he'd changed his look so that it was more like mine. I said, "I don't look like him - he looks like ME!"

    Of course, that was long time ago. Now neither of us look like that!

    If i cut my hair and trim my beard the right way, i can do a pretty decent Hugh Jackman impersonation, at least facially.

    Vincent Van Gough. I used to get it all the time when I was in hospitality. There's that one one selfie he did with the blue background where he looks particularly haggard and like maybe he hadn't slept in several weeks. That's me to a tee pretty much all the time. But without the talent.
