I uploaded that picture of my face at the wedding to a place with a cute face-recognition thing to do celebrity face matching. The number one celebrity match to my face was Magic Johnson. Hrm...

Though Nathan Lane and Tobey Maguire both made the list, so it could have been worse. In return, I shall take John Goodman being there stoically (note: John Goodman's not actually a bad-looking guy, but it was a terrible pic of him).

The picture I usually use (the one here) is sadly too small, and I've long ago lost the larger original. My silly hiking photo with the squinched-up face apparently looks like Tom Hanks. I wouldn't have guessed that first.

I got someone named Katherine Heigl when I ran my picture.

But I also got Kate Winslet, Halle Berry... and Jude Law, George Clooney and Ewan McGregor.

I was kind of hoping for Ewan McGregor. They seem to recognize a lot based on the angle of the face, so they probably just had him at a different angle.

Hrm. Interesting that I got all men (both times!), but you got a mix.

Yeah, I uploaded two other pictures and in the second one, all but two were men. Richard Dreyfus?!

But hey, the girl was Claire Forlani (oooooh) so I guess my wounded pride is soothed.

Hrm. I certainly don't see you as a Richard Dreyfus type... Then again, I was quite surprised when my #1 match was Magic Johnson.

Guess I'll have to find out what Claire Forlani looks like.

She's a cutie:

Ooh... Nice!

She is indeed tasty. She does this little squinty thing with her eyes that can melt me on the SPOT.

That is an interesting little game. The first match with the first photo I tried came out Christina Ricci- so I was flattered. I tried with a different photo, and it came out Matthew Lillard- that's the guy who plays Shaggy in the live-action Scooby Doo movie :-P

Oh, the humiliation
Apparently I look like Tony Danza, at least when I use this icon picture.

Man, that site is not very good. Glasses and sunglasses apparently make up a major facial feature if you happen to be wearing them in a picture. I actually had one picture come up with Jiang Zemin as a 70% match!

Yep, pretty bad facial recognition. If that's what the government is using, I can put away my tinfoil hat now.

It seemed to do my recognition based largely on glasses & the angle of my head in the picture.

On the bright side, I apparently look like Alexis Denisof.
