      When I had long hair I've heard anything from Shawn Morgan, to Matt Tuck, Brent Smith. And when I had my crazy hair styles, Nikki Sixx and Jacoby Shaddix. Haha. I've changed my hair a lot, and the peoples words change with them every time!

      On facebook, friends had a celebrity lookalike week in which we posted profile shots of whom we'd been told we looked like.  When I posted a shot of Liam Neeson, my sister and my MOTHER (not having yet heard of  lookalike week) both thought it was me ... with glasses!

      I was speechless!

    Don't know if this counts but many years ago while travelling through Miami airport an old lady came up to me with a stupid grin on her face.

    “It’s you...Isn’t it ?”

    I agreed that it was indeed me.  She turned to her friend nearby as said, “There you are, I don’t you it was him didn’t I ?”

    Her friend looked far from convinced and scowled at me, “Well it doesn’t look like him ... that’s all I can say. He’s got more hair than him for a start.” (I did in those days).

    Not to be swayed the original lady returned to the attack, she looked me in the eye and said, “ Go no tell her it’s you... Go on she’ll believe you...!”

    So I did, I told her it was very definitely me.  “Well you shouldn’t wear a wig then... not if you wanna be recognised.”

    And so they wandered off debating the subject as they went.  To this day I have absolutely no idea who they thought I was  in the first place.

    So girls, if you’re still around and on HubPages, care to enlighten me !!!

    Yeah. I used to get that a lot from customers where I used to  work. I have been told that I look Like everyone from Conan Obrien, to Michael J Fox, but most people mistake me for George Lesson's the weather man at our local TV staion. I should see if I could be a stunt double.

    The most funny was Mr. Noodle. Who the hell is that?

    When I was in college I was called Bobbie Jo or Bobbie Jo Gentry all the time, based on Joe Diffie's song 'Pickup Man'.  It got to the point where I didn't think twice about answering to it.

    Well, laugh as much as you want but, i remember, 5 years ago, I was with work to Kiev, Ukraine, and while I was standing outside a restaurant together with some colleagues, a man approaches me and starts speaking something in the Ukrainian, which I of course didn't understand. One of my native colleagues started to laugh. And when I asked him to translate what the man had said he translated giggling: the man said you have the profile of Alexander the Great....lol

    I always wanted to look like somebody else when I was a little girl. I hated my pink girly face and upturned nose, I even wanted to do operation and straighten my nose! Those stupid years... Luckily for me my doctor had more sense, he just kicked me out of his office and sent me home. Thanks, doctor. I might end up looking like Michael Jackson.

    I was amazed to realize that I resemble Frank Zappa at one of my latest photos (especial match goes to the nose area, lol)! And what makes it twice as great is the fact I have a T-shirt with this exact image of him. Check it out:

    Me & Zappa

    And just a week ago I was asked at the party if I play any music. I was like, "Yeah, I do." The girl asks me again: "In a band?", and I go: "No, on my own." She couldn't believe it. She had seen a guy at the concert and assured me he looked exactly like me. But I didn't had a chance to meet him to be sure smile
