I'm Hot Like Heidi Klum - Mostly

Jenny posted a fun little deal where you upload your picture and it spits out 8 celebrities you look like the most.

I figured now that I'm so famous - it would be fun to see which celebrity I most resemble. So I ran my picture through the program.

Of course like any good scientific experiment, I first needed to obtain a control sample, to test the validity of the software. So as a test, I input a picture of Kevin Bacon and asked it to find the best celebrity match.

Low and behold - the highest percentage match was indeed Kevin Bacon himself. Ignoring the fact it also thought he looked like Christina Applegate, this was good enough for me.

Now it was my turn

The most bizarre thing is, the highest percentage match was for Brandon Lee - who, except for the fact is the name of my son - is no relation to me (cue Twilight Zone music here). However I'm not sure how flattered I am that the image of him it thinks I look the most like, is one where he was made up all goth-like for his role in the movie The Crow. I mean I know I need a tan and all - but come on.

Then again I suppose I should be totally flattered that the image matcher thinks I'm over 50% as hot as Heidi Klum and Denise Richards. Hey, I'll take what I can get.

As for the other guys? Well, you know who Andy Garcia and River Phoenix are. And in case you don't recognize them, the other three are:
Aki Hakala - A drummer from a cool Finnish band called The Rasmus.
Clive Barker - A contemporary author, film director and artist.
Christopher Lambert - A rockin French actor who has starred in Greystoke - The Legend of Tarzan and Highlander.


So essentially, my likeness is in pretty good company. Of course it didn't recognize my Alton Brown-ness, but then again his ship has sailed anyway. In fact, if my good fortune keeps up - he'll be putting his picture in this program and I will be the celebrity he most closely resembles!

Ok, so maybe you're thinking, "Uh, come on Jeff - don't you think you've taken this whole 'I'm famous' thing too far? After all, one recognition in a men's room does not a celebrity make."

That may be true, but then again it doesn't hurt to be prepared. Because if someone wants to cast me as the next Sport Illustrated swimsuit model because they think I'm Heidi Klum -

I need to be ready.

So...Kevin Bacon had an 83 percent resemblance to HIMSELF?

THAT'S funny.

Heather said...

I thought the same thing as Sandy.

River Phoenix huh? I thought he was pretty hot. Joaquin Phoenix, a worth replacement. How in the world do you resemble women?

I will have to try it.

I am Gao Xingjian. Whoever he is.

Mom said...

I wondered the same thing as Heather---why are there pictures of women? AND---I think you're better looking than ANY of them!!!

Bill said...

If half of the men think you resemble Denise Richards or Heidi Klum, I would stay out of the men's room.

Mooselet said...

You know, I'm always confusing you with Heidi. Now I know why.

wayabetty said...

Yeah, I do see those Heidi Klum's cheekbones on you!

I love love Christopher Lambert, he's so H.O.T!!!

As for Brandon Lee, loved him in The Crow, too bad it was such a tragic accident!

Mom Thumb said...

If you look like Denise and Heidi, I'm not putting my mug up there. I certainly don't want to know what MEN I look like!

sandy - At least it picked him as the person who is the most like himself. Actually, I'm kind of impressed.

heather - This software is so amazing it is even able to find my feminine side. Which is mostly hot.

yello - I Googled his picture. Strangely, it wasn't that much of a stretch.

mom - What a mom thing to say.

dad - So you're saying I should start using the women's room?

mooselet - Yeah, we're nearly identical.

waya - Heidi has cheekbones? Somehow I missed that feature when I looked at her picture.

linda - Well obviously, based on who it chose for me, the software is very generous - so I wouldn't worry about it.

Heather said...

Ack. So now that I've done this myself I have to take back my comment. You are waaaay more good looking than I...women and all.

I'll post my results soon.

Stacey said...

Wow, control sample and everything. You really take this seriously.

Jenny said...

You are totally as hot as Heidi Klum. I bet you could get Seal in a heartbeat.

Mitch McDad said...

This Heidi Klum person is not completely unattractive. I should give her a call.

I'm sorry, was there anything else on this post...I didn't notice.
