Lately my friends and I have been discussing who would play us in a movie version of our lives.
It’s a fun game but it can be really hard (especially if your celebrity knowledge is weak). We were trying to think of actors similar to us in age, face shape, colour, and general features. And preferably a celebrity we don’t hate.
I was leaning toward Zooey Deschanel for her big eyes and pale complexion, though nobody was entirely convinced she’d make a good Sam.
Tina mentioned America Ferrera and was like, “Yes! Totally!” She’s got my dark features and a similar body shape and most importantly I think she’s awesome (I was an avid Ugly Betty viewer and thought she was amazing in Real Women Have Curves and The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants).
But my other friends disagreed.
So I plugged my picture into this celebrity look alike generator. There are a few on the net but picked this one since I didn’t have to put in my e-mail info to use it.
I ran it twice just to be sure. (Actually I ran it three times but in one picture my hair was pulled back and the generator thought I was a man, not unlike Gary Sinise. It should probably have the functionality to allow you to specify your gender.)
Eva Mendes is cool. Slightly older of an actress than I’d like to see play me, but I can see the resemblance. What I can’t see is Katherine Heigl or Naomi Watts (or is that just because I can’t picture a blonde looking like me?)
Eva Longoria is gorgeous so I’m not complaining.
Eva Mendes and Kim Kardashian are the only two that show up in both runs, so maybe there’s something to that.
But, I still think I’d prefer America Ferrera play the part of Samantha in the movie of my life.
What do you guys think?
