Who would play you in the movie of your life?

Which celebrity do you think will best give a portrayal of you? May be based on looks, acting prowess, or similarity of life experiences.

And what would the title of the movie be?


Here's my choice -

Actoress: Sissy Spacek

Title: The Closer

I would go with Jodie Foster. I think she resembles me the most out of all the current actresses.

But she would have to grow her hair out....

Hmmmm, as for the title.... Getting Out of Giving In

I like this one! Now I'm going to figure out the soundtrack to my life!....
Good thread Bluerose!

I would have to say GSP (George St. Pierre), although he's not an actor. I think he looks most like me. My movie would be called the Underdog.

I guess I'd go with Dustin Hoffman.

And the title of the movie would be 'the outsider' subtitle 'always on the outside looking in'

LOL. That's what I get told, and it's very flattering to even be mentioned with him. Actually, Ryan Gosseling a little too. In his movie the believer, the outline of his face is strangely very similar to mine.

I'd still go with GSP cause he's tougher! :)

Get this Blueranne, I went on a date with a girl and told her that she kinda looked like Jodie Foster. Ya know, very pretty and stuff. Well, she apparently didn't think Jodie Foster was anything special.:confused:

Oh well that was the date from hell. She also said that she had a sex change!

Maybe Anne Hathaway. Cause she has similar hair color to me and her voice kind of resembles mine.

The movie - "The Starving Artist".

A movie about how a different-minded shy starving artist (duh) courageously struggles through obstacles and adventures of city life with her awesome weird friends, and finds a way to make it big and become an unstarving artist. (yay! everyone's happy, yadda yadda, maybe finds romance, I haven't decided how chick-flicky this will be yet). :p


(My real life isn't interesting enough to make a movie out of right now. :o that's my movie life :p)

If I can relate to any actress i'd say Drew Barrymore. Not looks, but personality.
Slightly annoying, not much of a social filter, liberal.


And the movie title: Random (a comedy of course).

Looks wise -hmmm....when I was blonde I was told a few times I looked like Nicole Kidman - but I think its because of the nose, big forehead and blue eyes.

That's very funny, Anonymous. I am often told that I look like Jodie Foster, which is odd because I have brown hair and never wear it as she does, etc. I'm taller and certainly not as trim as she is.

It has something to do with how I use my eyes in conversation, or so some have said. She often looks at things without moving her head, as do I.

Very funny.

I would pick her, too, just because I like most everything about her. Not sure what the title would be. Maybe, "Unfinished..." ;)

Maybe you should have been an actress?!:p She's pretty awesome in the Silence of the Lambs. I like her anyway. She doesn't take every role, so it seems, that comes her way. She's selective. Plus, she's got bangin blue eyes.;)

Geena Davis,of course she'd have to play me as a young woman. And the movie would be Thelma and Louise,of course.

I even kinda looked like her when I was young...the big hair and eyes,tall and thin. Then when Thelma meets JD, Brad Pitts character,and has her transformation,the similarities between me and Thelma really start.

If you ask me exactly what similarities I'm talking about I'll plead the fifth.

I want to say Zooey Deschanel because I love her, but she looks nothing like me. :( I can't think of a movie star who looks like me at all! They don't really want us racially ambiguous people in the movies :D
The movie would be called "The Taste of Gummy Worms" :)

Kathy Bates (couldn't find a photo with glasses)

"The Craft" if the aunt (me) was still alive to teach the sisters magic

more likely...

"Rain Girl" and people would wonder if the title meant me or my granddaughter

Man, if I had a dime for every time somebody said I look like Anthony Edwards when he was on 'ER'
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2026/5822462405_823499a554.jpg

I'd have, like, 3 bucks. Judge Reinhold would have to do the voice-over.

Anthony Edwards starring in Brob2: A Life in Reverse!


I say that because the 'successful' part of my life in most peoples eyes would have been pre 38 years of age, when I was making lots of money and living the supposed 'American dream', which was rather not fulfilling in truth.

WHen I was 18, someone told me I looked like a cartoon character .....but I can't think of any cartoon lady like me ....and rather a lot of others told me I looked like Janis Joplin, but with better skin .....( when I was younger, my hair would fizz at the beach,...and since I lived at the beach ....)

so Janis Joplin.....


and the title ?


what else but ...."What A Long Strange Trip It's Been"

06-12-11, 03:43 AM
Hmmm, I'd have to go with Maggie Gyllenhaal.......though I do recall being matched to Collin Mockery on one of those "which celebrity do you look like" applications.:o

The title would be "Wodalla's Lady" after the pet horse my mother had as a child- she was sired by the 1953 Melbourne cup winner, but was never fit for racing.

06-17-11, 04:14 AM
Oh, she was good.

Did you ever see her in blazing Saddles?

I didn't like that movie much, but "Young Frankenstein" was great, and she did a visit to "The Muppet Show" years back.

Second choice: Gilda Radner or Sally Fields (not in looks, just in the ability to perform great insanity and emotional breakdowns) ;)

Recently a random person asked me if I was Shilpa Shetty (she's an Indian actress who became famous in the UK when she appeared on Big Brother). I don't think I look like her but I'm Asian as well and to some people we all look alike, I guess. :lol:

I'd call my movie: The long dark, tea time of the soul

It's not original but I love that title. :)

The only actress I can think of who looks sort of similar to me would be maybe Zoe Saldana...but that's a bit of a stretch. As for the title, a few weeks ago we had an assembly at my school and when I asked my friend what it was about (me being oblivious as usual), he jokingly replied, "It's about YOU! The title of the presentation is, 'How to deal with crazy purple-haired Canadians in your school community.'" I have to admit I like that. :D
