    Is this an Attolini or Brioni suit you are wearing in this shot?

    The one I get most consistently is Matthew Broderick, or often "...that Ferris Bueller guy, what's his name...?"

    When I had longer hair, I got Patrick Bruel a lot too. I was in Montreal bar a long time ago when Bruel was known to be in town and a couple of girls mistook me for him so my buddies and I all went along with it. Let's say it ended up being a very interesting night... [​IMG] The irony is that I met Bruel briefly once and he was a total asshole.

    has ten years really made you look like less of a chick?
    apparently. i don't, frankly, get any of the similarities.

    Really? I met him once in Paris, and he was charming.
    Wait, was it you? [​IMG]

    I hate to break it to you Fab, but many guys (famous or not) are charming and nice to pretty young girls, and rude and short tempered with other guys.

    I, on the other hand, amd rude to everyone.

    Michael Keaton (53%)
    Sean Connery (53%)
    Patricia Velasques (?!?) (53%)
    Jimmy Carter (53%)
    Kyra Sedgwick (52%)
    Carl Sagan (billions and billions of %) [​IMG]
    Diane Keaton (wtf!?!) 50%
    Mikis Theodorakis (48%)

    (For your information, I am none of these people. Although I share a name with two cultural "icons", both of film fame.)

    Edit: I ran a 10-year-old photo through the thing and came up with a startlingly different set of results:
    Shahrukh Khan (70%)
    Keira Knightley (62%)
    Liv Tyler (61%)
    Grace Kelly (61%)
    Fernando Redondo (60%)
    Jim Henson (59%)
    Kristanna Loken (58%)
    Jon Stewart (54%)
    Carson Daly (54%)

    (Another fwiw: I am consistently mistaken for a former governor of a Great Plains state. He even called me "him" once when we met.)


    The younger you resembled both Keira Knightley and Liv Tyler? You have any younger sisters? [​IMG]

    I do have a younger sister. She is definitely in the hottie category.

    Hey, wait a minute! Doesn't "lawyerdad" indicate marriage?!? Or simply fatherhood?

    (And I have absolutely no idea how that MyHeritage thingy came up with Keira or Liv. Honored to be sure, but completely baffled.)

    When I was younger and my hair was longer I would often get George Harrison and Bob Dylan. (Which I think meant I looked scraggly and had a big nose.)
    More recently, I've gotten Gabriel Byrne on several occasions.
    The MyHeritage thing gives me:
    Bobby Charlton (71%)
    Peter Ustinov (64%) (about 62% of which I attribute to his sunglasses, which are similar to the ones I'm wearing in the only photo I had on this computer)
    William Rehnquest (62%) (please, God, let it be the glasses again)
    Jean-Pierre Raffarin (61%) (no glasses in his photo, or Charton's)
    Salman Kahn (59%) (no glasses)
    Sylvester Stallone (58%) (which would really bother me if he weren't wearing shades)
    Matthew Perry (56%) (no glasses)
    Daniel Day-Lewis (56%) (no glasses) (I've actually heard this one before)
    Mother Teresa (56%) (um, yeah - just the other day this lady stopped me in the supermarket and tried to award me a Nobel Prize . . . )
    Zsolt Baumgartner (55%)

    I don't get a celebrity per se but for some reason I'm often mistaken for an actor or someone involved in film. Two weeks ago I had lunch with my father and when I went to the hostess desk to ask where the bathroom was out of a bevy of gorgeous hostessi one led me to the bathroom and discreetly asked, "So are you like, an actor? We all had bets." I didn't have the heart to carry on the decit so I admitted I was an unemployed post-grad backpacker by trade.

    Marriage and fatherhood, in the boringly conventional order. Your sister needn't worry - and hopefully has higher standards, anyway. But what good is the internet if we can't use it to construct a fantasy life?

    So, you look like a cinnamon bun?

    Apparently, at least when I'm wearing my Persols. How does your sister feel about breakfast pastry?

    I VERY often get the "you look like X comment" except X tends to vary a lot and sometimes have no point in common whatsoever.

    Some exemples:
    JosÃ[​IMG] ThÃ[​IMG]odore (ex montreal canadian goalie)
    Leonardo di caprio
    Jimmy Fallon
    Gabriel Garcia Bernal

    Now if only someone could tell me what those dues have in common in the looks department....maybe we all have similar ears or something.
