My Celebrity Look-Alike

Piggybacking on Dona's post about celebrity doppelgangers this weekend, I present my own. Here's me:

And here's the one I choose as my celeb look-alike:

It's actress Mary Kay Place, who has an impressive resume of film and tv roles, but who is probably best known at present for playing Adaleen Grant on "Big Love," the wife of the "prophet" and mother of main character Nikki.

In addition to having heard throughout the years that I somewhat resemble her, I've long admired the feisty determination she brings to her roles, and that darling southern drawl. And oddly enough, when one of my closest friends *and my own daughter* saw her picture as my Facebook profile this past weekend, both believed her to be me. Pretty funny!

So tell us, what do you think and Mary-Kay-Place and me...and who is your celebrity look-alike?

Very cool, Tina. I definitely see the resemblance. And, while you don't have that southern drawl, you definitely share that feisty determination!

TinaFerraro said...

LOL, thanks, TLC. I definitely admire MKP's spunk!

Janie Emaus said...

I see the resemblance. But I have to say that I saw her on Big Love last night and you are way prettier!
I don't who mine is. So I'll just pretend that I look like Kim Basinger!

Wendy Toliver said...

Definitely a resemblance, Tina! I don't watch that show (though I should, living in Utah and everything--haha!) so I didn't know who she is.

TinaFerraro said...

Yes, Janie, you and Kim Basinger! I love it! And Wendy, actually, you should watch it...the whole seasons are available on DVD, if you are ever interested (and can find the time)!

I can totally see the remsemblance, Tina! I love Mary Kay Place, especially in The Big Chill.

Cara King said...

Tina, you were really good in The Big Chill! :-)

As for me, no one's ever told me I look like anyone, that I can recall...


TinaFerraro said...

Mary Kay Place is great, I know! And a fun tidbit I have learned about her is that she co-wrote three episodes of MASH! So not only do we share a common look, but clearly the story-telling gene, as well!

Cara, how about Julia Styles as your celeb look-alike? Yes? No?

Cara King said...

Hmm, Tina, I never thought of that! Thanks!


Marley Gibson said...

Wow...there IS resemblance! That's pretty cool. Don't know who mine would be. Used to be Bernadette Peters when I had my curly idea who it would be now.
