Who Would Play Me In a Lifetime Television Movie of the Week

There are few questions that I fear.
"Can I be honest?"
"When are going to get married"
"What are you going to do with your life?"

and scariest of all

"You know who you look like?"
I get this at least once a week. It’s kind of funny to me. If I actually looked like someone famous, I would understand. I don’t. It’s never the same person. Everybody thinks I look like someone different.
When I wear my glasses I have been told I look like Kennedy the MTV-jay.

When I was younger I looked like the girl on the front of Milkman powdered milk box and a little like Drew Barrymore. Now, I would take it as a compliment but I wasn’t super hip to kids calling me "firestarter" because I looked like her. ...At least I think that’s why they called me "firestarter", maybe it was because I lit them on fire with my eyes....

I got Monica Lewinsky and Rosie O'Donnell for awhile...talk about a low period.

The most common one I get lately is
“ you look like that girl on that show…you know…that girl”
I don’t know.
They can never think of it either

I apparently resemble some French actress and I was told recently I looked a little like Rachel Weisz which was probably just damage control after telling me I sounded like Kathy Griffin.

A date told me I reminded him of Veronica in Heathers, (the one where Winona Ryder murders her friends). I had him killed…and stole his wallet.

Have you ever had that conversation with a group of friends about what actor would play you in a movie version of your life? Think carefully before you tell someone who they look like. I know someone who nearly became suicidal at the casting of John Cryer.











My mother thinks this might be “that girl on that show.”
That’s silly. I’m not even black.

Wishful thinking. She named you Deonn didn't she?

If it were a lifetime movie you would be played by Meredith Baxter burney for sure, or Valerie Bertinelli

Wow now that I think of it you do look like Andy Dick

At least your mom doesn't tell you that you look like a young Tony Randall.

I get that I either look like "someone's sister" (as in, "you look like my roommates' sister or my ex's sister..."
or that I look like "that chick in Titanic".

At least people think you look like someone famous (with the awful exception of Rosie "the Devil" O'Donnell). I usually get told I'm someone's cousin.
