Celebrity look alikes

What is it with old ladies? For the first time in a couple of years, a not quite elderly lady told me that I looked like the wife and unborn child murderer Scott Peterson. I had a more understanding view of the situation when the schmuck was in the daily media, but in 2008? Come on.

"Who does everyone tell you you look like?" she said sweetly.

"Ralph Nader."

"No, really. Who do they say?"

"I'm really not sure. Who do you think I look like?"

"Scott Peterson. You know, the guy who killed his pregnant wife and threw them in the ocean."

"I'm familiar with the story."

(Grabbing the customer next to her) "Don't you think he looks like Scott Peterson? Give him a haircut and put a goatee on him and he's a look alike."

"I could see that," the other lady said. "And that's not a good thing."

Troubling indeed. So in the spirit of misery loving company, please help me feel better by telling me some horror stories of your celebrity look alike encounters.

When I was coaching youth, I had one kid tell me I looked like Robert Downey Jr... then she was quickly corrected by a friend to say that had more of a resemblance to Harold Ramis in Ghostbusters.

Luckily, Mizz Merchant thinks the RDJ comparison is more accurate. The fat, drunk, stoned version, I presume.
I've been told numerous times that i look like MIB, closest thing to a celebrity for me.
Troubling indeed since Laci Peterson was killed by another woman for her fetus. Scott Peterson had no involvement in that.
I've been told I look like everybody from Alfred E Neumann to Kevin Bacon. I guess beauty's in the eye of the beholder.
Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt, mostly.
Would you guys like to be known as a fat Michael Imperioli stunt double or as Blossom's older, drunk, ambulance driving brother Anthony Russo?
My old boss (yes, I have had a job)told me I looked like Phil Mickelson, even going so far as to say I had the same spare tire.
