This is me slightly bloated in my "I just came home from dancing all night in Villa"-look:
It's also Doppelgänger-week in Facebook, where people are asked to change their profile picture to someone famous they've been told to look like. I just love seeing my friends as Lady Gaga, Che Guevara, Vicky Pollard, and my favorite, the lion from the Wizard of Oz! Lol. With all this I was inspired to gather some old photos from the years back, and show you who people have told me I looked like back then.
It all started when I was working in the Football World Cup 2006 in Germany. Mostly Americans (altogether I counted like 19 people) kept telling me I looked like "that Scandinavian quirky singer, is she also from Finland?" It was the black and multicoloured hair and the eyes they said.
The Finns mostly (since they knew all Nordic people look more or less like Björk) thought I resemble Mira Luoti, the singer from Finnish duet PMMP. My moves aren't maybe as graceful as hers on the mic, but I just had to put that pic in there.
Another frequently mentioned name is "Spiderman's girlfriend" or "M.J" especially in Mexico, where the previous names are unknown (and so seems to be the name Kirsten Dunst). Of this I'm extremely flattered, even though I know it's mostly the drunken shots of her wobbling to rehab that I resemble.
When I was a kid I was told I looked like Becca on Life goes on. I hated that. But you gotta admit the likeness! Mother of God, I hated those specs. Now I think they look awesome!
Me and my bessie Emilia on 1st grade! LOL
In secondary school I was told I look like Clare Danes. I was really cynical and bad with all kinds of self-critisism back then, so I hated that too. Hah. Allthough it was probably sincerely a compliment! But I hated being the geeky kid in all the tv-shows. I mean I was a total geek, but I didn't wanna admit it. I don't have a picture of that time that I would like to publish (too much teenage angst still there), but I do admit the resemblence, especially whenever I've had brunette and reddish hair.
This is how I see myself in the mirror some mornings. So far nobody's dared to agree... how bout you? Atleast I feel like a lesbian serial killer in her mugshot, when instead of washing my hair I've had chips & beer for dinner (and maybe rubbed some of them in my hair aswell). And don't get me wrong, I don't wanna label her as anything. There's something very true about this woman. I mean what else do you expect to come out of a girl treated like her all her life? (Although the same effect comes to me with salty snacks and bubbly beverages.)
