"Has anyone ever told you that you look like......"





So I think that it is funny that people always think that Chris looks like random people. People have said that he looks like Aladdin, the karate kid, and Manu Ginobli to name a few of the most random... which brings me to my next point. Chris has been thought to be many different ethnicities.... Arab, Indian, Greek, Brazilian, Italian.. the list goes on. I guess he would be a valuable actor since he could play lots of different roles. I on the other hand just look like the girl next door. No one famous just, "You look just like my brother's girlfriend.. or other common folk. Who do people tell you guys that you look like? Do tell please!

I am rarely told that I look like someone famous but I laughed out loud at this because at least once a month I see someone that I think looks like Chris.
"Austin, doesn't that look like Chris? They have the same profile."
And so on...
Glad to know other people are thinking the same thing.

I liked this post, how funny. So if he's aladdin does that make you Jasmin?
I used to get told I looked like Terri Hatcher (which I didn't really like that at all, plus she's like 30 years older than me), I used to get told in high school that I looked like Nev Campbell(which I didn't see it at all), and the last one was in college people used to tell me I looked like Natalie Portman (after the whole star wars thing) which is the only one I took as a compliment because I think she is a cute girl. Now that I am married and have kids I don't really get any thing any more, I think it was just guys trying to make me feel better or hit on me or something.

You forgot what I said! RAY ROMANO!

Funny... I can see that in Chris. I can definitely see the different ethnicities. I think that's fun- makes things interesting. I get the same thing as you- "Do you have a sister, because I know someone who looks just like you" "You look just like someone I know" blah, blah. I must have a common face. I have gotten lots of ethnicities as well- Asian, Native, and even Mexican when I was there (there are pale skinned Mexicans!). I laugh when Denver gets comments about who he looks like, depending on the length/style of his hair. Yesterday our sis-in-law said he looked like Dave Navarro (Carmen Electra's ex-husband), I think mostly because he has a goatee right now. You'd think the absence of make-up, piercings, and tatoos would negate that comparison. We have one friend who's mom always calls us David and Victoria (Beckham). Yes, we have so much in common with them...

Margaret,
That is so funny that you have noticed the same thing.You don't look like anyone I can think of.. just someone who should be on America's next top model. Have you been watching it by the way? I think Claire will win. Oh.. thank you so so much for the cds!! I am so excited to listen to them this week. My computer is out of service right now, so I may have to listen to them when I am driving.
Kristin,
Ooh.. I like all of the ones that people have told you.. and they are all gorgeous. I can see the other ones a little, but the Terri Hatcher one just makes me laugh.
Annalise,
I totally did forget that you think Ray Romano.. I guess I know what Chris will look like in 20 years. Not eveyone can say that about their husbands.
Adrienne,
My heart is so warm thinking about Denver as Dave Navarro... that is hilarious. Maybe if Denver squeezes into his old leather pants and takes a picture of it in combination with the facial hair I could see it. Actually could you please do that... it would be hilarious. The Bekhams.. that is a nice one, and I could see how people could mistake you for a fair skinned asian woman.

I vote for Manu Ginobli! I think he has the most resemblance to Chris. Ummm...as far as I go...when I was a teenager people used to say I looked like Claire Danes and Fiona Apple. This was of course when I was...let's say 30 pounds lighter than I am now! Not that I think I look like either of them even when I was a skinny waif.

Amanda,
You do look like Claire Danes.. oohh and I love her. Maybe that is why I was drawn to you s

Elisa said...

Ha! Chris does kind of look like Aladdin...that never would have occurred to me! I've been told I look like Lisa Marie Presley, you know, who married Michael Jackson. That didn't excite me too much.

Kara's Blog said...

Elisa,
No way... not Lisa Marie. I think you kind of look like Jennifer Connely with your dark hair but lighter eyes.

E said...

KARA! A friend of mine who was at the baby shower told me that you look like PRINCESS LEAH. So there you go beautiful. MISS YOU.

adrienne said...

I showed Denver this post and we laughed as we thought of him squeezing into his leather pants. And it would be a squeeze!! He does still have them. The Dave Navarro comparison actually creeps me out, but it's funny! Denver said that on Sunday at church someone told him that he looks like Lenin!! Lenin?!? I said "Like Stalin and Lenin?" Isn't that hilarious? I bet not very many people get that! This has been a very enjoyable post! Thanks for the laughs, Kara!

Chris said...

E,
It would figure that my huge star wars nerd huband would want to marry me if I look like Princess Leah. It's all starting to make sense now.
Adrienne,
The fact that someone would even have Lenin's face captured in their mind with such detail is funny. This quite has ended up being quite amusing I must say.

Oh by the way.. I once again left a comment as chris on accident!

Laur said...

AHAHAHA!!! He totally looks like the karate kid!! That cracks me up!! ahhh hahah

Julie said...

People just tell me I look like I'm 15 :(

Kara's Blog said...

Julie,
You will love being mistaken for 15 when you are 50!

Robyn Barlow said...

Back in High School I was frequently told I looked like Sinead O'Connor. I was never sure how to take that :-)Scott on the other hand gets such comments as Matt Damon (specifically in reference to one of our wedding photos) and Orlando Bloom (as seen in Lord of the Rings).

i used to always think that chris looked like aladdin. haha. i get cinderella, and sometimes drew barrymore (but i think that people that say that are smoking something). Kara you're beautiful and the only you don't look like anyone else, is because you're original beauty.
how funny!!! love ya
