*************************************

The new number one in the UK on the 19th January 1980 was The Pretenders with ' Brass in Pocket'.. fabulous song

Sam went to see Toyah Wilcox. On more than one occasion I have been toldthat I look like her. Not sure I do though.

Here are some others over the years that I have been told I look like.


I must admit I saw Linda McCartney in Harrods with all her body guards. Our eyes met and I had that fleeting 'doppleganger' moment ... I think she did too .. because as she walked off she turned back to look at me again !!

So who is your 'doppleganger'?

oh p.s. was there nothing on TV on Friday night ? My stats had dropped then suddenly ....

my doppelganger is Dianne Keaton in her Annie Hall days

I met Linda McCartney once at a country auction - we used to share an antique restorer ......

In my prime .... last week ..... I have been mistaken for George Best and Eric Clapton. Tiggz and Penfold think I'm a cross between Bill Oddie and Bruce Forsythe .......

Annie Mouse said...

NM ~ oh yes I remember you saying that you looked like Diane Keaton when I mentioned Annie Hall at one time... you know I can see the likeness .. I thought she was so funky in that film

70steen said...

DP ~ did you need restoring back then too lol

How young a Georgie Best & Eric??
Now I think Bill Oddie is a good likeness ;-)

70steen said...

hee hee oh yes I forgot about Helen Hunt lol (maybe 30 years ago)
Do you mean Ulrika Jonnson?

Daddy Papersurfer said...

It might have been Galloway and Sykes of course ......

Melissa said...

I've been told over and over that I'm a dead ringer for Meg Ryan but I must admit that was mostly back in my thinner days. Also the lass from Crocodile Dundee whose name escapes me at the moment.

70steen said...

hee hee DP how about Morecambe??

70steen said...

Hi Melissa and welcome :-)

yes you do have a look of Meg R.. that gal off Croc Dundee..Linda Kozlowski... yep I can see that too

fracas said...

I get mistaken for others all the time... someone should get Mr. Frac some glasses!

lol. Seriously, I do get stopped often and asked if I'm other people but never celebs.. usually just some random name of someone they know and think I'm them.

My daughter gets told extremely often, that she looks like Scarlett Johannson. It annoys her, but it happens to her quite often.

The Rev. said...

For a brief moment I thought we were discussing Scientology.


Whew!

70steen said...

Oh dear Frac you must have one of those 'faces'. A do too as people ask me things like 'didn't I meet you at blar blar ' etc few months ago a few people were walking towards me when I was on my way to work. The male in the group whispered to a gal, the others must have over heard and as they passed they all stared at me .. I thought OMG have I put on too much make up and I look like a clown... as they passed I heard one of the gals say 'I have no idea who she is??' lol
I put you and I down to being so gorgeeeeous :-)
How beautiful must your daughter look .. she should be delighted
