Diary of the Dad has tagged me in a meme whereby you have to admit to all those famous folks you’ve ever been compared to.
Growing up with long, red hair it is hardly surprising that alongside the teasing I have been compared to anyone else who had the misfortune to ‘grow up ginger’. So I offer you my ‘doppelgängers’….
Sarah Ferguson. I was only 12 in 1985 when they got married, but (can’t believe I’m admitting this) I did used to wear a velvet bow to half-tie my hair back and despite my youth I would often get ‘Oooh – you look like Fergie!’ Cheers for that.
Julia Roberts. This only happened once and it was a boy/man at work who was hoping that flattery would get him everywhere. It didn’t.
Gillian Anderson. Forget looking like Scully, let me at Mulder…….! (
Julianne Moore. This lovely lady is someone I have been compared to ever since she was in Nine Months with Hugh Grant way back in 1995. That’s 17 years of ‘OMG – you look just like that actress…..’. I am ALWAYS flattered.
Gillian Murphy. She is prima ballerina with the New York City ballet and recently my cousin was on a yacht with her (as you do…) and said it was the most bizarre experience as she looked just like me. I’ll take that one….;)
Jerry Hall. This is a new one on me, but with a twist. Someone at Britmums Live exclaimed this just a few weeks ago. Bizarrely, in her youth my mum looked JUST like Jerry Hall. So there you go.
I will leave you with a melee of faces – I make a rare appearance in there…..
and I pass the baton on to:
Do with it what you will…..
