Facial Recognition: Which Celebrity do you Resemble?

Monday, April 10th 2006


This past weekend, Linda and I were watching VH1's Best Week Ever, which is consistently funny, and we saw a segment about a website which uses facial recognition technology to tell you which celebrities you resemble. So we gave it a try.

Apparently, I look like the kid who had sex with a pie, and my wife looks like Christina Ricci. I'm not sure I see the resemblance, but they were all only 65%-70% matches. I'll take it. Especially since when I used different pictures it told us that Linda and I resembled the Olsen twins.

If you feel like giving this site a try, and posting in the comments, I'd love to hear which celebrities other people I know look like. Just don't expect accurate results.

Linda's always been told that she looks like Madonna. And I'd always been told that I looked like Bob Saget...

It took awhile to find decent matches. Not perfect matches, but an amusing site. Thanks for the link.

John - fixed your link. I strip HTML out of the comments when people post - you'd be surprised how much junk I get in these comments if they're unfiltered.

... I don't mind looking like Ethan Hawke, but I don't think I look anything like him either.

The software had the chin in the wrong place, so I had to re-crop the image.

Majic Johnson. Which is funny, because I'm white. Second choice was Forrest Whitaker.
