Found via Leesa.

Apparently, there's this company that is marketing some sort of face recognition software that uses algorithms to compare faces. Right now, they're set up so that you can try it out on yourself. Upload a picture of yourself and you can see which celebrities you (supposedly) resemble.

So who do I look like?

- Elisha Cuthbert 68%;
- Sharon Stone 65%;
- Juliette Binoche 65% (So maybe Murph's friend--who said I looked like "La Binoche"-- wasn't crazy after all?);
- Justine Henin-Hardenne 65%;
- Sarah Michelle Gellar 62%;
- Audrey Tautou 61% (My sister always told me I should get her Amelie cut);
- Brigitte Bardot 60% (Ha ha, right... I only wish I were that hot. I think their software needs a little more work);
- Julie Andrews 59% (I was "Maria" in my elementary school production of The Sound of Music);
- Tarja Turunen 59%; and
- Scarlett Johansson 58%.

Interesting, though I can't say I see any resemblance at all to most of these women apart from the fact that we're all Caucasian and female.

You feel for the oldest trick in the book! Now they have your picture in a government database and can put you in secrutiy tapes digitally and claim you commited crimes.

Uhh ya because THAT makes sense. Which gov't would this be anyway because I'm pretty sure the U.S. gov't doesn't care about Canadians.

Anyway, that's pretty interesting Natalie. I think I will try it too. I wonder if my face will be used for "secrutiy" tapes, God forbid.

Let me know how it turns out--Avril. :)

So, Mr. Morris, do you comment here just for the sake of commenting somewhere, or in order to advertise your blog?

Morris said...


I visit random blogs and comment on the ones I find interesting. I can't help it if blogger repeats the same ones over and over if you know people I comment on.

I'm sorry, then, if I jumped to conclusions, but the randomness of your comments/commenting here (that first comment back in October in particular) made me suspicious.

Apparently I look like Sandra Bullock, Tony Blair, Mick Jagger...?

OK, so I apparently resemble: Faye Dunaway, Andie McDowell, Benita Ferrero-Waldner, Shari Arison, Tori Amos, Mariah Carey, Courteney Cox, Emma Watson, Virginia Mayo, and Julia Roberts.

Interesting. Although I'm sure the celebs will change if I upload another picture.
