If only….

Have you ever been told that you resemble a certain celebrity? Well, I have. Quite a number of times too. The first time it happened was about 5 years ago. A male friend told me that I looked like a certain motherly character in a baby cereal’s advertisement. It wasn’t flattering to say the least, but I did find out in the end that the mommy was quite a hot chick. And there it was, my maiden taste of pseudo fame.

Fast forward to recent years, I’m now being compared to this particular actress. A role in the movie ‘Cruel Intention’ catapulted her into stardom. She isn’t the prettiest girl in Hollywood, but mass appeal is the key, isn’t it?

Fellow collegemates and classmates have commented that I look like her, especially from my side profile. Some people I meet in clubs too are saying the same. Even my own friends agree, after squinting their eyes for hours of course. And some of you Xangans =P. Then, there are those who disagree completely. They usually roll their eyes or just laugh it away (how rude). Not to forget those who think that it’s “under certain lighting”.

So, on this terribly boring Sunday, I’ve decided to launch an investigation into the honesty of my friends and acquaintances. I shall use Miss Witherspoon’s and my picture to conduct a facial comparison. As it is an obvious fact that Miss Witherspoon is a caucasian while yours truly is a true blue (hrm yellow) chinese girl from Kuala Lumpur, I decided to utilise the magic of Adobe Photoshop and transform Miss W into an asian girl. Why not the other way round? Well, that’s because changing a brunette into a blonde is bloody tough, at least for me.

Nobody compares a swan to a duck, right? Since my world is a fair and lovely world, I did away with the eyebags and added some colours to my face. Here goes….

So what do you think? I honestly think there is not an inch of resemblance, except for our slightly protruding chins. And it ends there.

Next, the original pictures for the shock factor. Hahaha.
