Doppelgangers, Celebrity Lookalikes and Avatars on Facebook


There have been a few articles on dopplegangers and celebrity lookalikes on social media this week. With the movie AVATAR, the idea of a lookalike is rather appealing and freeing.

I have noticed this in my own family's facebook pages. My son's doppleganger is either Kiefer Sutherland or Conan O'Brien; my daughter-in-law's is someone whose name begins with Jennifer; and her sister's is Courtney Cox.

But, who am I? There aren't that many celebrities of a certain age. Then I remembered. Someone said I looked like Julie Andrews, many years ago in her Mary Poppins days. Then I found the perfect picture. This does look like me in High School, complete with the outfit and hair. We both look so young and innocent.

Now if I can only figure out how to switch out my photo on Facebook!
