Saturday Night Genealogy Fun ~ Famous Look Alikes

Randy from Genea-Musings has posted his Saturday Night Genealogy Fun Adventure for this evening! Here is his fun idea for tonight:

"Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to find which celebrities that have the same facial features that you (or someone else you choose) have. Here are the directions:

1) Go to www.MyHeritage.com - you don't have to be a registered member to use this feature. Click on the "Celebrities and Fun" tab.
2) Click on the "Celebrity Collage" tab, and then on the "Create my Collage" button.
3) Upload a photograph with your face (or another person's face) to the site (the face must be at least 100 x 100 pixels) and click on the "Run face recognition" button.

4) Select a collage template, and the faces (up to 8) to go into the collage template. Click on "Next" and "Preview" your template, which should bring up the template for you to review. You could click on "Save" and it would go off to your selected social networking site.

5) Figure out how to show your collage on your blog or social network site (I have my own process defined below).

6) Tell us which celebrities that you (or your selected person) look alike - write your own blog post, make a comment to this post or on Facebook.

7) Think about how you could use something like this as a Christmas gift."

I wanted to try this I because I have been told numerous times that I look like a certain celebrity. This could be the REAL test! Here are my results!


Emily Browning - 73%
Carrie Fisher - 70%
Heidi Klum - 70%
Summer Sanders - 67%
Michael J. Fox - 67%
Julie Kristie - 66%
Shirley MacLaine - 66%
Renee Zellweger - 63%
Ok, I have a couple of comments here. Michael J. Fox? I guess the Famous Look Alikes aren't based on the gender we enter. Ok, I will go along with this, I am on the shorter side same as he is.
The famous celebrity I have been told I look like throughout the years...was this person even listed? I never could see the resemblance at all myself so it always shocked me when someone said I looked like this person. But now, I guess it is official, because yes, she is listed here too! Do you think I look like Shirley MacLaine????
This has been fun Randy, thanks for giving us all a laugh and or a challenge on Saturday nights that we can do if we are available. Even when I am not able to participate, I love reading everyones responses!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of you genealogical treasure hunts!

  1. Hey, I've had a crush on Michael J. Fox for 20 years! Umm... wait, that didn't come out right. But you do look a bit like Shirley, too.

  3. I tried this out and got some strange results myself. Who would have thought I look like Angelina Jolie? LOL..if I looked like that there would be no reason to ever leave the house...I'd just stare at myself in the mirror all day...and you do look a little like Shirley...

    Carol, you are exactly right! That is where everyone would see the resemblance!
