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.
