Separated At Birth?
In a recent post, Dagger Aleph mentioned the MyHeritage Face Recognition site, which will take an uploaded photograph of your face and tell you which celebrities you look like. (Feel free to fill out the registration form with garbage—I did.) I fed it my favorite headshot, and it tells me I resemble the following fine individuals:
You know how sometimes you take an online test of some kind and the results seem eerily accurate? Um, I'm not having that reaction right now.
UPDATE: Aha! Unsatisfied with my original results, I tried feeding it a different picture, and I got much more plausible results:
Johnny Depp (68%), Edith Stein (67%), Richard Clayderman (64%), Rene Russo (63%), Dolph Lundgren (63%), Gael Garcia Bernal (62%), Bill Murray (62%), Audrey Tautou (60%), and Sarah Michelle Gellar (59%)
That's more like it. Remember, computers are infallible, and this one says I look like Johnny Depp and Audrey Tautou all rolled into one. Aw, yeah. (Edith who?)

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Separated At Birth?:
Ashton Kutcher 68% (who the hell is he? - some actual resemblance IMO)
Barn Margera 64% (again who is this? - not much resemblance)
Leonardo DiCaprioi (63%) - now I feel like I'm going to be sick.
Yeah, it's a kooky site, but lots of fun. On one of my photos, I supposedly most resembled the young Mia Farrow. Hurray! On another, Ken Watanabe. There was not much difference between the two pics. Meh.
Is it humanly possible to look like Johnny Depp and Dolph Lundgren at the same time?
