We’re discussing celebrity look-alikes today and since I am in the throes of a respiratory flu, I deiced that if I couldn’t write a great deal, I’d give you some pictures to look at.
I have known a few people who truly were celebrity look-alikes, but I have also known a few with just a bit of resemblance. My mother:[circa 1944]
she was offended![My mother was vain.]
With all this in mind, I really should have been better looking.
More than twenty years ago, a friend called me because her young children insisted that “Aunt Tonette” was on TV. It was Teri Garr:
I wish! But they were not the only ones to mention it around the same time.I know it’s hard to believe. I know, I know; I’ve changed a LOT.
When my nieces were young they thought Dean Martin was at our door:
One of my sister’s friend’s fathers looked just like this picture of Dale Robertson:
Seriously; this could be Mr.Eislie.
And one of my cousins was married to a man who was a dead-ringer for Rod Taylor:
When my sister was a teen people sometimes commented that she looked like a young Ann-Margaret:
Well, maybe her hair, but really, one of her daughters actually did when she was about 20.
And when she was older, she stopped people in their tracks when Wynonna Judd was in town, when Wynonna was at the height of her attractiveness:
But I think it was just the cheekbones…I’d never have been hired to impersonate her, no matter how much I have changed!
Any thoughts? Anyone have anyone else in mind?
