I hear this a lot: "You know, you look like [insert celebrity name here]." Or "You remind me of . . ." The thing is, is that I remind others of completely different people. Check it out -- these are the people I've been repeatedly told I resemble:

Gwyneth Paltrow -- that's cool. I think it's the nasal tone of my voice.

Heather Burns -- best remembered as her blonde character from "Miss Congeniality," Cheryl Frasier, Miss Rhode Island. Yeah, I think that fits -- it's the whiny voice.

Laura Prepon -- Hm. I think it's because she's tall and has a low voice, and I'm tall and have a low voice. Weird thing is, my sister Lexia has been compared to her too.

Napoleon Dynamite -- Uhhhh. It's the voice inflection. And the droopy eyes. :(

Thing I'm thankful for: that I've mostly gotten Gwyneth Paltrow. Yesss. I don't think I resemble her now, although I might have when I was a younger, tan, thin high schooler. :(

I also get Gwynie. I think it's that we're relatively tall, fair, girls with deep voices. Not to mention our clever wit. GOSH!

Lauren, now that's just silly. You don't even look like Angelina Jolie!

Well - I saw that it was these are the people I kind of resemble... and so I scrolled down and I was like yeah I can see it! (with Gwyneth and the second chick a little less so)... but the other ones.. I don't know... ;) I don't get that I look like anyone - although Ashiz did pick a picture of Natalie Portman to represent me. :)

I was kidding. Geez. 'Cause I don't think you look like any of these people. Maybe Donna. Maybe.

I think I can see the Gwyneth resemblance. The Laura Prepon...less so. The others, not at all.

When I was in High School my friends' mothers used to say I looked like John Lennon. I guess it was the glasses and the long hair. Other than the Frodo and Harry Potter comparisons in Panama, I don't get compared to anyone anymore.

When I was walking to class one day in downtown, this homeless guy told me I looked like the daughter on the show Roseanne. You know, the one w/ curly hair? It hurt my feelings.

I can totally see how you look like Gwyneth Paltrow. When I casually scrolled down your site and just glanced over that picture you posted of her, I thought (before reading anything): "Hey, what a great picture of Sara), looked closer and it was labeled Gwyneth Paltrow. No, really. Admitted, the deception was a second long, but there are similarities.
You are cute on your very own terms, though.

Interesting connection you make with voices, though. I have never thought about whether I sound like anyone else. Do I?

Someone told me once that I sound like this radio show person from here in Columbus... That was the first time someone said I sounded like someone..

OH WAIT! Ally told me that when I'd read scriptures in Institute and she wasn't looking, she would think I was her older sister. Like I sounded like her.. weird.
