I have just seen the politician Chris Williamson on TV he just looks like Voldermort IMO.

Do you or your family resemble anyone ?

Dawn French apparently :D

Back end of a bus!

Used to be Nana Mouskouri, so DH always said. Now a pale, grey granny

In my late teens I used to think I looked like Jane Asher but that was because we had black and white TV and I didn't know she was a red head!

My mother, apparently!

The queen. A bit.

In my younger days apparently Kate Bush. It used to be so annoying when people (mainly blokes) would use this as their opening line.

Have to say age and weight gain I don't look like her now.

I was mistaken for Sandy Shaw when I was about 19. Now it's Brenda Blethin. confused

Elvis Presley. grin

Lulu when I was younger 😂

Luckygirl Thu 27-Jun-19 20:33:01

People used to say I looked like Audrey Hepburn or Ali McGraw!!! Take your pick! Now I look like them only just a bit older!!!

Juliette Thu 27-Jun-19 20:39:07

Me too Yiayia4
I look more like her mother now!!

Our former neighbour (now deceased) looked like the BFG!

Bits of me look like my mum (e.g. feet) and bits like my dad (face, but sometimes that resembles my mum). When I look in the mirror I'm reminded of my cousin. Obviously a family resemblance

I don't seem to resemble anyone else. though I do sometimes catch glimpses of my late mother in mirrors and shop windows.

However, according to my DGC at least half the female celebrities, young and old look 'just like you, Granny'

I would love to look like Brenda Blethyn, she is beautiful when not playing Vera and I think she has looked better in the last couple of series.
I look like all the other grans of my age.

I was once told I had the eyes and bone structure of Bette Davies! shock

phoenix Thu 27-Jun-19 21:27:26

Actually, make that twice, by 2 different people, more than 5 years apart!

Day6 Thu 27-Jun-19 21:29:33

I have been likened to both Julie Walters and Andrea Turner. In the past!

When Mary McAleese was standing for election as President in Ireland many years ago, the DDs and I were visiting Paw who was working in Dublin at the time, and there were big election posters everywhere. Youngest D asked me why they had my picture in shop windows etc looking like a “Wanted “ poster!

Marydoll Thu 27-Jun-19 22:28:05

My colleagues used to call me, "Anne Robinson" , now I look like my mother!

Many, many years ago, while on holiday in America and having very long straight hair at the time, I was told I looked like Jane Semour (I don't....I think it was the hair and the accent). More recently I was told I remind them of Jenny Agutter.
