Morning Becomes Celebrity


The latest trend in blogger self-abasement is to post a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before showers, shaves, or make-up. Harmonica Man and Dave have already shown their stuff. Since I have no personal shame, as anyone who has heard my rendition of “Hot Blooded” knows, I’ve decided to give it a try. I wake up about 5:30 and walk my dog, so the only people that have to face this are other dog walkers:



After the dog walk, I shower and dress before anyone else in the house is awake. Fortunately I clean up nice, so when my wife wakes up she only sees this:



Yeah, right. Okay, this is closer to the truth:


Since I have a fresh recent picture of me, I decided to try this website that determines the celebrity you most closely resemble. Jennine tried it and her celebrities came out pretty hot. Based on my morning face, these are the celebrities it came up with:



A group that includes Gary Busey and David Spade can’t be flattering. Unfortunately, the choices based on the fresh-scrubbed me aren’t any better:



Since I can’t do any better with reality, I decided to try the software on my Mii avatar:



Now we are talking. I have no idea who most of these “celebrities” are, but I like what I see.

Blatant Comment Whoring™: Do you resemble any celebrities?

You're not so brave for showing your morning face... you're brave for showing a software result that compares you to Gary Busey!

Hah! LOVE the clean up comparison....too fun. Thanks for participating - I added your link to the list.

Oh...and re: your celebrity question....this whole "rise and shine" project has people saying Julia Roberts but I don't see that.

Josh said...

Dude, Annette Bening is hot.

As it Louis Pasteur for that matter.

Roger Moore has clearly seen better days, however.

I just got my hair cut last week, so my bedhead is no longer a thing of comic terror, but I can definitely look pretty bleary. Anyway: a year or so back a bunch of friends for no good reason decided we would figure out who would play us should anyone make a movie of our collective lives. After submitting a handful of nominees drawn, I think, from the same site you used above, people pretty much decided on...Jonathan Frakes (yes, Riker on STNG). I've also heard Matt Groening suggested. Ah well...can I just have Groening's talent and Frakes' residuals?

Your wife is so lucky to have a husband who looks like Brad Pitt. Oooh-la-lah!

I have to say, I'm less than impressed by this software. First I tried out my avatar, which is a full-face shot of a bust of Xenophon and got 0 hits. So then I tried out a real shot of me and got Oliver Kahn (the former German national goalie; in this house, he's considered really ugly) and Keith Richards. Mind you, these were in the 60% range.

Given that and the fact that the vast majority of your hits were a minimum of 20 years older than you, I'd have to rate this as mediocre at best.

I've done this photo thing before, and I got, no matter what photo I used, this German actress named Romy Schneider, who is half-way between my and my mom.

Whenever strangers tell me who I look like, it's always Helen Hunt.

My husband swears I look like Molly Ringwald, but I don't see it.

I've been told I look like Nick Nolte, but I haven't had a drink in 23 years.

Once again I give props to anyone willing to put their 'morning face' out there.
