    I've been told that my twin lives in tennessee(someone who looks like me).
    I don't live far from there so people are always asking me if they know me.

    I know someone in the southern usa who looks just like this girl in the netherlands. ???:confused:???

    Have you ever been told that you look like someone else?

    Better yet, have you ever been told that you look like someone famous?

    When I first moved from Southern NH to Boston's South Shore in the summer between 5th and 6th grade, I was told that I had "an identical twin" who lived on the next street over. When we actually met, neither us could see it, nor when juxtaposed side-by-side could anyone else :cool:

    However, a few years later, there was a girl the year ahead of me who looked enough like me to be my sister (more than my younger sister, in fact); our last names were also very similar (and more so when pronounced with a heavy Boston accent), so casual schoolmates presumed she was my older sister. She later had a rather unique chance to effect vast changes in my life when she introduced me to a group of precociously social LGBs in our town, to/with whom I eventually came out, while still in high school, in 1977.

    Without her and the support of her friends, my youth would have been completely different.

    I get that a lot...people often stare at me & I try to ignore it but eventually the will approach me & either tell me I look just like *insert random guy's name here* or they'll ask if I'm his brother.

    I've also been told (at various times) that I look like Malcolm Jamal Warner, Larenz Tate & Ice Cube even though none of those guys look ANYTHING alike!

    James Hatfield of Metallica. I have never followed the group and he is older than I am. I see his picture and see the similar center of the face but I think I look better. When I have been in New York, I have had waiters insist I am him and just dining incognito. If they give me a table for it fine. I always tell them the truth but they won't believe me. This won't happen all year and then bam...three times in a row. Always surprises me.

    That's James Hetfield.

    Someone once told me I look like Geena Davis and celebrity look alike things tell me I look like Katie Holmes. Aside from having dark hair and full lips I look like neither of those women.

    My home is wherever reality seems elastic and the
    yes.

    the most amusing comparison was by my father. he says i look like jodie foster. i look nothing like her. but it tickles me to no end that he thinks that.

    The only person I've ever been told I look like is Steven Wilson, of Porcupine Tree. When I saw Porcupine Tree in concert, a half-dozen people must've pointed that out to me.

    In recent times I've been told I look like a young Charlotte Rampling and I've also been told I look like Audry Hepburn which is hugely flattering because both women are very beautiful.

    Every so often I get confused for some other guy I never met who lives in this city.

    I've been told I look like Johnny Depp a number of times. I know, I know, easy to say for someone without a picture up. But I totally disagree and don't really think I look like him. And I don't think he looks that good, anyway, so I don't care, either. Ian Curtis was also a comparison when I was like.. 15/16. But that's a couple of years ago.

    There is someone who used to live in Naples FL and the last I heard was living in San Francisco CA whom people have mistaken me for. I actually had to show someone my Drivers License in order to get them to believe that I was not the other. (This has been going on for the last 16 years)

    When I was younger I would get mistaken for Christopher Atkins or Andrew Stevens sometimes; it was very flattering at the time but I'm happy that it has stopped.

    And recently I was waiting for the elevator after an appointment and I heard a woman gasp and say "OMG is that Robert Redford by the elevator? And I swung around to see and I was the only one there... I thought about saying "F**k you B***h! I'm young enough to be his child!" I just flipped her off instead and got on the elevator.

    I used to get told I looked like Tom Hanks a lot. One of my friends recently compared me to Jonathan Rhys Meyers (albeit an aged JRM). I think both actors should be offended.

    As far as famous people go, I've been told that I look like Harry Potter, Kurt Cobain, and John Lennon. None of which are very accurate in my opinion.

    David Duchovny, by several unrelated people...though I don't see it at all.

    I've been told I resemble a younger Colin Powell. I don't know what to make of that.
