One time back in the mid nineties when I lived in New York's Hudson Valley, I was walking out of a grocery store when a youngster walking along with his mom pointed to me and said, "Look Mom, it's President Clinton!"

I've usually been associated with characters such as "Halloween's" handsome leading man, Freddie Kruger, or Boris Karloff's interpretation of that famous sociologist, Frank N. Stein.

Liam,

Funny you said Jack Nicholson. There is a tech working at the local hospital that I swear looks so much like Jack Nicholson that if I were he, I'd never walk down the street in any major city! The guy even sounds like him!

The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) says I look like Tom Selleck,,,,,except that I'm a little bit shorter,,,,,and my face is different! (Sorry,,,,that's a long standing joke around here.) Just couldn't help myself.

I get this a lot, especially from Americans I meet on cruise ships, that I look like Celine Dion! I don't see it, but then I guess it could be the French Canadian blood in me....
I've also been told I look like Julie Andrews....

In the late 80’s and early 90’s I shared a strong resemblance to Christina Applegate. AKA Kelly Bundy

Katlady, i don't know who you look like but you are sure cute. More Naomi Judd I would say (is she the daughter? that's who I mean).

I have gotten a number of not so great-looking people throughout my lifetime from Paul Simon to Gene Simmons from Kiss.

I think we all have a period in our early twenties when we were "really really really good looking," (that's from the movie Zoolander in case you didn't get the reference) but it never lasts.

But as a friend of mine once said to me, "when you get older all the women look pretty." I guess that is one benefit.

Very sadly I bore a strong resemblance to Monica Lewinsky. There was a picture of her on the front of the Globe and Mail on day and my phone rang off the hook. Complete strangers usually in the US saying...you know you look like..YES!!!

Paul>> Gene Simmons???? The guy wore makeup for a REASON.
Once he took it off, he became scarier. Even his real name is scarier: "Chaim Witz"

You are a handsome man by comparison.... (but then, pretty much every guy is)

Thanks Paul that is sweet of you to say. I think you mean the daughter Wynonna Judd; Nami Judd is the mother. Here is a picture of Wyonna I can see it a little bit but her jaw shape and eye color are different.

Chaim is a wonderful name, meaning "life", but I think someone, along the way "shortened" Witz? It should be "something" _____witz. (Abramowitz, Bercowitz, Horowitz, Lebowitz, etc.)

IMO, Captain Tenille, Chaim (Gene) was just enjoying being an "outlaw" and dressed up for an act.

JMO,

I was thinking of this last night ,you are probably thinking the pronunciation is "shame".In reality is CA-EEM

In Israel when making a toast people say L' chaym which translates to life.

My hebrew name is a nice name but my jewish name can seem a bit strange
