Over at Ember Grey, Emily is worrying about some horrible drunk person telling her she looks like Glenn Close.
I just want to reassure her that there are far, far ruder comparisons than being compared to a crazy sexy blonde with an incredible acting range.
I was called Dumbo because I had big ears, so I would hide them all the time behind my hair. This same boy followed me all throughout school and I got called various other things like fish girl.
|This bitchy girl in my eighth grade class said I walked like a nun. She later took out a full page in my yearbook saying if I changed, oh, absolutely everything about the way I look that I had the potential to be a knockout. Oh well, her doppelganger was (and still is) French Stewart.|
I also used to get Claire Danes a lot because of my fair skin.
Age 15 1/2
As the innocence of youth wore off, the comparisons began to be more toward horror movie stars, like Fairuza Balk from The Craft. That was from an ex-boyfriend of mine. "You look like that girl from The Craft!" "Neve Campbell?!?!" "...No."
Hilariously, after I gained 100 lbs people were nicer about their comparisons.
"You look like that geeky girl from that show!" Err, thanks!
Here are the girls I get now:
|Zooey Deschanel (I wish)|
|Elizabeth McGovern (omg I super wish!)|
So don't worry if you are being told if you look like a woman that looks like a man. I have been told by an app that I look like an actual man and sometimes Angelina Jolie if I take off my glasses.
