As an artist, I often see resemblances between people that I meet by chance in life and others. I don't always remember where I have seen the aspect of their appearance before, which can lead to people thinking that I am just making the recognition up. Sometimes it will be just a small partial aspect of a person that is in question, and sometimes it will be most of the details of their appearance or carriage.
It's funny how people react to this. Sometimes they will think it's cool that they look like someone else, and maybe it will be the first time anyone has ever suggested it. Sometimes they will tell me "Yea, people tell me that all the time". Sometimes they think I'm kidding them. Some people are annoyed, like "What difference does it make?" Others seem to feel that if we are not talking about a near identical comparison, that it doesn't bear mentioning. The latter of these reactions makes me wonder why I do bring it up sometimes.
I frequently sneak into movies after paying to get into a theater to see movie A. Then I will go see Movie B, and maybe Movie C as well, afterward. Timing is important on this. I saw some movies for free the other day that made me think of this. Maybe you will see some of the same resemblances as I do.
One movie was the latest sequel or chapter in the "Punisher" saga or vehicle, which was more gruesome than I had expected. The guy playing the Punisher was Ray Stevenson. Looking over his internet photos, I couldn't find one that was very good re: the resemblance that I saw while watching him onscreen. Maybe you will have thought the same thing. I wondered ( before I looked up his name ) if he was perhaps a brother of James Gandolfini, who plays Tony Soprano on the cable series, and has other prominent roles.
Then I went to see "Twilight", a movie that had garnered a lot of interest from young women due it's male lead Robert Pattinson. As I watched him, he reminded me of many faces I had seen over the years, including a statue whose name I could not recall. He seemed a little bit like Di Caprio in the way he carried himself and overall physique. His hairdo made me think of Elvis and his eyebrows made me think of "Eddie" the youngest Munster. I thought of the old supernatural soap opera, too, called "Dark Shadows" that we had enjoyed as kids. There was a guy on it called "Quentin Collins" that sprang to mind. He looked a bit like a young combination of Quentin ( David Selby IIRC ) and Dolph Lundgren. Pattinson's nose is the weak link in my comparison, I think.
( He reminds me of other people too, but I can't remember who yet. )
Quentin Collins -
Pattinson himself -
I saw that Pattinson had been in at least one of the Harry Potter movies, and for some reason flashed on him ( briefly ) as being a candidate for being a brother to Emma Watson. The strong jaw, I guess. DiCaprio comes back to mind again also, even stronger than Pattinson, come to think of it. Those eyes/eyebrow lines....Yeah, I know this last one is a reach. More a resemblance of attitude than actual looks....
Here she is with her actual brother, looking nothing like this....
