Aloha Friday

It’s Aloha Friday over at An Island Life!

Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog!

After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

Question for you this week is:

Have you been told you look like someone famous? Who?

My answer:

I’m asking the question because I think it’s a fun one, but I honestly can’t think if I ever have. If I HAVE, it’s been a long time and obviously didn’t stick with me. LOL

  1. Those ads are funny!

    I’ve been told I look like Kathy Griffin and some country singer, can’t remember her name (I don’t listen to country).

  2. Been told Kirsten Dunst more than once – especially when my hair was red!

  3. In high school people called me Jenny Piccalo (you’re too young I’m sure to know who that is but it was Joanie Cunningham’s BFF on Happy Days). I’m not sure WHY they thought that but whatever.

    Later, friends told me I looked like Katie Segal (aka Peg Bundy on Married with Children). I can maybe see a LITTLE resemblance but really? I think I need to find new friends with more positive examples… or I need a GOOD plastic surgeon πŸ˜‰

    Have a great Friday πŸ™‚

    Oh… and to Yaya… I think they meant LeeAnn Womak for the country singer … she looks a little like Kathy Griffin πŸ˜‰

  4. I have been told I look like Elisha Cuthbert.

  5. 2 different people have said I look like Geena Davis. I don’t see it πŸ™‚

  6. I dont think Ive ever been told that I look like anyone famous or if so I sure dont remember it.

  7. I have been told that I look like Reese Witherspoon and Kellie Martin (Christy and Life Goes On actress…oh, and ER stint). I see the resemblance sometimes…LOL!

    Lovin’ the advertisements!

  8. Sometomes people tell me I look like Rickie Lake…I think I look more like Salma Hayek of course lmao
    Great question

  9. a long time ago someone told me I looked like NIcole Kidman AND that I looked like some gal on One Life To Live (no clue who b/c I don’t watch that show)

  10. I look like Julia Roberts…oh wait, thats only in my mind.

  11. Those ads are pretty funny!

    I’ve been told I look like Jodie Foster and Drew Barrymore. And I don’t look anything like either. They don’t even look alike! I think the few who have said that were on something! LOL

  12. Many people told me that I look like Michael Jackson, I wonder how

  13. No! Never been told I look like anyone.

  14. When I was in high school people would say I looked like Winny Cooper from the Wonder Years, except with better teeth.

    I also dated one guy who would say I looked like a mini- Alanis Morrisette. I seriously hope he didn’t think it was because I was angst ridden! lol

    In both cases I think it was mostly due to my hair. I had very long hair back then.

  15. I have never been told I look like anyone famous. :/

    My Aloha Friday πŸ™‚

  16. I LOVE that cartoon!

  17. Yea, people say I look like Eva Longoria! In my dreams anyway, LOL. NO, I don’t look like anyone! *sniff*

  18. I was told I look like Bo Derrick from the movie 10

  19. Love the ads. They are too cute.

    I’ve never been told I looked like someone but I always wanted to look like Kristy McNichol.

  20. My grandma’s cousin saw an underwear model in a magazine and thought it was me. I still see her in ads sometimes and we really do look quite similar!
