Does anybody here look like a famous person?

I never thought I looked like anybody famous but last year people kept coming up to me and saying, "Pacquiao!". I had no idea what that meant or if it was a saying in some Asian language.

Later I found pictures of boxer Manny Pacquiao and I was astonished. I know no two people are identical in appearance but Manny is the only one anybody said I look like. Here I am at similar age to him now (but back in '90s for me at early 30s) fronting band with guitarist behind me using Ibanez, of course.

Any other lookalikes?

Re: Does anybody here look like a famous person?

When I was younger and had long hair more than a dozen strangers would say Bon Jovi over time, which I hated. I used it to my advantage once when the greeter at a restaurant said it. I responded instantly saying he's my cousin...and we got a very nice table. screw it, she started it.

Everyone says my wife looks like Drew Barrymore.
I think my wife a bit hotter than her.

I have been mistaken for Max from Eve 6 twice at airports. I never knew who the guy was until I looked him up after this had happened

Maybe a little like Alice Coope when I was younger. When he played in my town he looked over at me like maybe I was his long lost brother..LOL. Today I look more like Tony Iommi.

I don't look like anyone famous, but at my previous job we had a guy that looked like Chris Isaak, and CM Punk, haha

We never called them by their names, just Punk and Isaak.

Paul Gilbert, used to get that all the time from guitarists and musos that I knew, if there is a vague resemblance trust me the similarity ends there.

Several years ago I used to shave my hair and wear my satch-like sunglasses. When I showed live shot laptop wallpaper to people, they sometimes thought it was me.
