After our recent post about thewoman who looks just like Angelina Jolie,I started thinking about celebrity look-alikes.You know--the famous person you kinda resemble (aka your "celebrity twin").Well,mine is Sara Gilbert...but just don't call me Darlene!
*Me...Sara.What do you think: twinsies?*I never thought I looked like any celebrity until back in college one night when I was out with a big group and this older,superhot guy (who was oh so important to me at the time...though I can't remember his name now,of course) interrupted the conversation to announce,to me: *Oh my god.I know who you remind me of.Darlene fromRoseanne!You'reexactlylike her.You look her.You act like her.You're totally Darlene.*
Well,I was mortified.Not because there's anything wrong with being compared to the lovely Sara Gilbert physically.Not at all.Love her onThe Talk.But the character Darlene?!She was sarcastic,moody and brash.I didn't think she was particularly w88手机版登录fashionable with her flannel shirts.She never wore makeup.I was nothing like Darlene,I sniffed....while adjusting my flannel shirt.
I was way more w88手机版登录fashionable than Darlene (even though I apparently dressed just like her).
Of course Darlene was also funny,artsy and smarter than most of the Conners,but my issue was I didn't want The Hot Guy Whose Name I Can't Remember to think *I *was sarcastic and moody.I wanted him to think that I was upbeat,fun,and (at 5 feet tall) supermodel-type perfection.Couldn't he have said I looked like Tiffani Thiessen,who was big at the time inBeverly Hills,90210?Or one of the girls fromCharmed?ButDarlene?!
The funny thing about the Darlene comment is that anyone I've talked to ever since about celebrity look-alikes,when I tell them my Darlene story,they ALWAYS say that they see it!I think I vaguely resemble Sara Gilbert...and,upon further reflection (and looking at lots of photos from college days to put this post together),I do have some Darlene in me.
__So now you know my celebrity look-alike story but I want to know YOURS.Which celebrity do you think you most resemble?And,to take it a step further,why don't youtweet me a photo of yourself @glamourmag,using the hash tag# glamcelebtwin,telling me who you look like.I'll pick the best look-alikes for a future post here on Obsessed.
And,P.S.: Be sure to comment below and tell me if you think I look like Darlene in my college pix.I think The Hot Guy Whose Name I Can't Remember was right.__
