Whom Do YOU Resemble?

Here's something amusing that I came across on Christopher Taylor's Word around the Net. Upload a straight-faced, frontal head-shot of yourself at and find out which of 3200 celebrities you most resemble. You do have to register, but it is free.

So who does the face recognition program say is my celebrity look-alike?----Julianne Moore with a 71% match.

Mr. Venger and my Venger-ette beg to differ. They insist I more closely resemble Blondie's Deborah Harry as she appeared twenty-some years ago (NOT as she looks now). (I don't happen to agree with them.)

Some people match several celebrities and possibly at higher percentages. I think the hapless program was hard-pressed to find a twin for me because of my uniqueness. To put this in perspective, years ago Mr. Venger and I were watching a televised feature on Hungarian models. Mr. Venger became quite animated.
"Look! They look like you! Look at their facial structure! They look just like you! "
Sure enough, being an all-American mutt, I do have a bit of Hungarian in my background. Unfortunately, I really don't look like a model.

Sooooo...give it a try, and if you do, please let me know who your celebrity double is.

I apologize for the lack of paragraph breaks. I don't know if it's blogger or my friend's system, but I was not allowed to insert returns in my post. I'll try to fix it later.

Oh, come on. Hungarian is hardly wasp-like. It's no where near the land of the Angles and Saxons!

Kathleen Turner, huh? That's cool.

I apparently look like Christian Slater. I don't buy that. And the lower similarlity to Michael Moore is just insulting. (Imagine if I had sent a picture from when I had my beard.)

And Drew Carey didn't make the list at all!

No way! I thought you were a shoe-in for Carey.

Anna, thanks so much for linking to this site! Not only was it fun doing the facial recognition thing, I also got some new links to sites for my genealogy research!

Who the heck is Thomas Klestil? I supposedly look like him even though he is at least 30 years my elder and balding.

He is Austria's president. Here is a pic.
