Since becoming an adult, I’ve been told I look like someone famous. When I’m overweight, I get Kate Winslet. Don’t get me wrong, she’s beautiful. But in her younger days her face was round like mine is when I think I’m fat and become fat. Since I’ve changed the monologue in my mind and lost some weight, I am usually told I look like Reese Witherspoon.
Last summer, a guy I dated very briefly said I looked like Ben Stiller’s wife, Christine Taylor. I suppose I can see that. It’s interesting when someone says I remind them of someone else. I’ve been told I look like an ex-wife, a cousin and an old friend. Not all the same person… It seems as though I have a few doppelgangers out there, except I don’t think they’re evil. Honestly, one of my second cousins and I look like we could be sisters we are so similar. We even have similar mannerisms. It’s a little freaky.
But I was talking about celebrity look-a-likes. A gal I recently met said I looked like Duffy. Honestly, I had no idea who the heck that is. My first thought was of Duff from Guns ‘n Roses, but that’s the wrong blonde. Once I Googled Duffy, I realized what it is that is similar besides the blonde hair and blue eyes. It’s the bone structure. I have prominent cheekbones and maybe a strong chin like she does..I think.
It’s hard for me to logically look at my face. There is some emotional crap I need to overcome for me to see the beauty other people see. Stupid things people said to me when I was younger stuck with me when I shouldn’t have let it, but I am working on that. I am thankful for the compliments.
