• Celebrity Doppelganger

    October 27, 2010

    Rise and shine! :mrgreen:

    I have a full day ahead, which includes Body Pump, lots of errands around town, and packing. Lots and lots of packing. We’re moving 2 weeks from tomorrow! 😯 I cannot believe we’re moving again, but, at least this time, I know we’ll be staying for awhile.


    This morning’s breakfast was inspired by another one of Mama Pea’s pumpkin creations. The other day, she whipped a delicious-looking Pumpkin Pie Shake, so I attempted my own version with ingredients in my refrigerator this morning.

    Pumpkin Pie Smoothie


    • 2/3 cup frozen canned pumpkin
    • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
    • 1.25 cups soy milk
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
    • 1/8 tsp nutmeg



    I also threw in a packet of chocolate-flavored Amazing Grass. My cold is just about gone, so I want to nip in the bud. I have no idea if this stuff really works, but I figured it couldn’t hurt.


    Ok, now for some fun! :mrgreen:

    Who is your celebrity doppelganger?

    Does the word ‘doppelganger’ remind anyone else of How I Met Your Mother? I had never even heard the word until I watched the show and now I use it all of the time! 😀


    So, I was catching up my celebrity gossip in US Weekly the other day and stumbled upon a very familiar looking pug.


    Brad and Angelina’s “Furry Sidekick” looks a lot like Murphy.

    You might think that all pugs look alike, but they do not. Pugs come in all shapes and sizes. Some are cute and some are really ugly. Murphy is “unique” because he has really long, flying nun-like ears. (Most pugs don’t have such long ears.) Brad and Angelina’s pug has those same long ears and a very expressive Murphy-like face.


    Do you see the pug dog resemblance? I think they were separated at birth, just like Mal and Kirk! 😉

    Over the years, people have told me that I have a few celebrity doppelgangers, including Kate Beckinsale, Neve Campbell, and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Sometimes, I see the Kate Beckinsale resemblance, but not the other two. Actually, I don’t see it at all!

    Doggy 5K

    For the locals…

    BostonDOG and the MSPCA-Angell have teamed up with RACE – Run Against Cancer Events to host the Doggy 5K, Boston’s first ever road race for humans and dogs! All event proceeds benefit the Angell Animal Medical Center’s Oncology service and BostonDOG’s Boston Common Dog Park Proposal.


    The Doggy 5k is at 10am on Saturday, November 13th at South Boston’s Castle Island. The race is open to humans running with or without dogs.

    Question of the Day

    Who is your celebrity doppelganger?

    P.S. I’m hosting a Nutella and Teddie Peanut Butter giveaway over on Trading Up Downtown this morning! I know you want to enter! 😉

    I can sort of see the Kate Beckinsale one. People tell me I look like Natalie Wood (from West Side Story). I don’t know if you did the whole doppleganger pic thing on fb last year (all my college friends seemed to be doing it) but I put a pic of her up and I had a ton of people comment and say they actually thought it was me. I was pretty happy about that! lol I also get Lea Michele sometimes.


    The Wife of a Dairyman October 27, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    I love that Murphy has a famous ‘brother’ / look alike!
    I’ve been told that I looked like Leeza Gibbons, Heather Locklear and Kathie Lee Gifford {YIKES!}


    a October 27, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    good luck with your move!


    Lisa October 27, 2010 at 2:16 pm

    I’ve been told Kristen Stewart (yuck).


    Dave from Running Tips October 27, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    I look a little like the guy from the Transporter Movies. The dude that is going bald. He also was in the Italian Job playing ”
    Handsome Rob.”


    Alyssa October 27, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    It seems like at least 3 times a month, somebody stops me and tells me that i look exactly like Elisha Cuthbert… it’s actually kind of a scary resembelence. Oh, and if you want to see your husbans doppleganger– my friend Lester looks JUST like him, holy smokes. I tried to link some pics but photobucket is being a bitch… maybe some other time.


    Caherine October 27, 2010 at 2:30 pm

    Everyone always tells me I look like Renee Zellwegger, but I don’t really see it that much. Recently, I get Erin from The Office, at least when my hair was reddish 🙂


    KimEatandBe October 27, 2010 at 2:30 pm

    Good question!
    Funny experience for me: I was at a bar in college (aged 21 or so) and this guy was trying to “hit on me,” and he told me that I looked like Meryl Strep. MERYL STREEP is beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but I was 21 and she was around 60? YEEAH, needless to say that guy didn’t get my number, but now that I think about it, it was a compliment…just not when you’re 21 years old. hee hee.


    Regina October 27, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    I was looking at Redbook the other day in the doctor’s waiting room and the cover had the mother of Gilmore Girls. I thought “wow that looks A LOT like Tina!”


    Elizabeth October 27, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    I wish we were going to be home for the Doggie 5k! (Although I think I’d be carrying Clark for miles 2 and 3.) When I was in middle school, people said I looked like Nancy Kerrigan– I think this was during the Tonya Harding club to the knee saga. Weird, I know.


    Ashley October 27, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    I definitely see the Neve Campbell but not the other 2:) I don’t think I’ve ever been told I look like a celebrity but people often say they have seem my twin in various places…spooky!


    Katie October 27, 2010 at 3:12 pm

    I got Neve Campbell ALL THE TIME when I was little and Party of 5 was on TV! Now I (occasionally) get Liv Tyler and Jennifer Garner.


    Allison K October 27, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    WHen I was younger people told me I looked alot like Selma Blair. I also get told I look like Sarah Ramirez (from Grey’s Anatomy).


    Laura October 27, 2010 at 4:23 pm

    I’ve always thought that you looked a bit like Samia Smith, an actress on the Brit soap Coronation Street: http://www.eastcheshirehospice.org.uk/ech/images/samia.jpg and http://images.digitalspy.co.uk/09/31/160x120_street_samiasmith_maria03.jpg. I don’t think I look like a celebrity, but my aunt and uncle went on holiday once and met a woman on her honeymoon who they swore was my double. I think a non-famous doppelganger is even more spooky, for some reason! 🙂


    Erin October 27, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    Apparently I look like Larisa Oleynik. She’s the girl from the Secret World of Alex Mack from the 90’s. I don’t know if I see it, but over ten people have told me that.


    Mama Pea October 27, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    Great shake remake!

    Doppelgangers…so fun!

    Gigi looks like the little girl from the old Pepsi commercials:

    Pea D looks like Russell Crowe:

    I get Rachel McAdams:

    And Lulu gets the little girl from The Holiday (this one is scary):


    e. October 27, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    Tina, I have always thought you look like Rachel Griffiths from 6 Feet Under. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0341737/


    Shanna, Like Banana October 27, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    I recently got Anna Paquin which sorta bummed me out. When I was brunette, I got Evangeline Lilly and Eva Longoria 😉

    I’ve also got Lauren Conrad.


    Kari October 27, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    Tina, I’ve been a reader for quite awhile but never commented before, but I just HAD to reply for this one!!! Kirk from the Bachelorette is my husband’s very best friend since middle school days! Mal and Kirk do kind of share a resemblance, especially in coloring (skin/hair/etc). Here is another pic, for comparison

    and this one:
    he’s a goofball too!

    These are facebook pictures so I hope the links work!!


    Lee October 27, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    When everyone was doing that facebook doppelganger thing, I could not think of a single celebrity that looks like me!

    I have a friend that looks like you. The first time I met her, I immediately thought of you.


    Hannah October 27, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    Nah, Murphy is far cuter!!


    Kari October 27, 2010 at 7:24 pm


    Ah, crap, links won’t work unless you’re my FB friend. Boooo.


    Kelsey October 27, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    in the spring there was a big celebrity doppleganger thing on facebook lol, mine was Emma Stone according to others


    Tracy October 27, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    I used to get Catherine Zeta Jones a lot when I had long hair! It’s been a while….oh well!


    Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life October 27, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    I’ve gotten Jessica Alba & Alicia Silverstone, but when I was younger, my mom actually used to have strangers stop her to tell her that I was a spitting image of Winnie from The Wonder Years. Remember that show?!?


    Monica October 27, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    Your dog is famous! 😉

    I could never figure mine out and it drove me crazy! But then randomly one day this stranger told me who I look like and I think he was actually right. He dubbed me the doppeganger of Tina Majorino (Deb from Napoleon Daynamite).

    I have also been told that I look like Reese Witherspoon, to which I think – yeah, I wish!


    Alice October 27, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    Jennifer Love Hewitt! I totally see it.


    Lisa @ Fit in the Midwest October 27, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    I think you look more like Neve than the others.

    When I was in high school, people said I looked like Lee Ann Rimes. Now it’s Drew Barrymore and just the other day, my co-worker said I look like Miranda Otto from Lord of the Rings.


    Cati @ crave and create October 27, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    I think Murphy has a cuter face than his doppelganger! I can definitely see the Kate Beckinsale resemblance. I think Neve Campbell is just gorgeous–what a compliment!

    I’ve been told I resemble Jennifer Love Hewitt, too, and Katie Holmes. I can totally get on board with Katie Holmes, but JLH–eh, not so much. I think it’s my hair–I have thick bangs and a little face.

    Oh well, celeb doppelgangers are fun, pretty much no matter who they are!


    Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 28, 2010 at 9:05 am

    Now that you mention it, I can see the Kate Beckinsale resemblance!

    I was once told I look like Leonardio DiCaprio’s girlfriend, but I don’t really see it. 😛


    Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf October 28, 2010 at 9:31 am

    I can see the Kate Beckinsale in you!

    I’ve been told Avril Lavigne (only for the hair, eyes, and fair skin!) and Milla Jovovich. I don’t really see the latter, except for a random photo or two of her. Honestly, I think my face mostly resembles that of Amy Lee.


    Jess October 28, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    Caley Cuocu I get a lot- I had to look her up 😉 I also get amanda seyfried (before I dyed my hair back to my darker roots)


    Beverly October 28, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    Ok, how strange is this… I made pumpkin cookies today and had about 2/3 of a cup of pumpkin left that I froze (can’t just throw it out right?!). I was thinking, I’ll figure out SOMETHING to do with it. Low & behold I run into your blog today with the pumpkin smoothie… I will change it up to use the ingredients I have but you have inspired a copy cat recipe for sure!

    Changes I’ll be making… I have cinnamon, maple sprinkles (from GFS) to replace most of the spices cuz I’ve yet to fill my spice shelf here when I moved. Instead of the vanilla or plain greek yogurt (which I almost always have but somehow ran out & didn’t replace) I’m using the Oikos caramel yogurt… um… can u say YUMMO.. pumpkin & caramel? Ya, thought so! LOL I’ll take pics & blog the recipe but will definitely connect it to YOURS because you have inspired me!


    Beverly October 28, 2010 at 7:17 pm

    BTW… I’m not proud.. but my celeb “look alike” is… OH GAWWWD I cannot believe I’m putting this on the internet… Rosie O’Donnell. LOL I think cuz I’m short and chubby and have the totally round face & dark hair. Eh,it could be worse… could be some ugly man?! LOL I would have preferred to say Angelina Jolie.. LOL


    Ashley Lauren October 28, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    I have been told Jennifer Aniston by a lot of people and also Christina Applegate. The worst I was told was Martha Stewart…and I was 23 years old at the time. haha.

    I definitely see the Kate Beckinsale resemblance.


    Emily @ I'd Rather Walk May 14, 2012 at 10:43 am

    Oddly enough, my doppelganger (at least according to a handful of different strangers/friends/acquaintances) IS Cobie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother.
