Default Skinny celebrity look-alikes. Compliment or insult?

Does anyone else but me find this both offending and...I dont know what else? It just seems like a weird way of "othering" fat people by reminding them that they have the exact or similar facial features of some random bone-thin celebrity.

Let's see, I've gotten:

Fat Charlize Theron dipped in chocolate
Fat Thandie Newton.

Me:

And then

Charlize:

Thandie:


Female friends have gotten "A heavier Gemma Ward" and "A fat Tia or Tamara" (Those twins from Sister Sister? I forget their names, forgive me if I got it wrong.)

Now, dont get me wrong. Charlize Theron is awesome. So is Thandie. So are the twins from Sister Sister and Gemma Ward is a great model. But uhm...is it bitchy to equate the "compliment" with the age old You'd Be So Pretty If standard? Or are they really just trying to call someone pretty like a celebrity with some extra poundage?

I don't get. Thoughts? Have any of you gotten this? :/

I can see it in your cheekbones, shape of eyes, and the way your lips kind of... "sit", for lack of a better term.

I don't think it's an insult. To me, it's an insult to be compared to a fat celebrity simply because they are fat. I don't know how many times I've gotten Rosie O'Donnel or Roseanne Barr simply because of my weight. Seriously I look NOTHING like them, but my size seems to justify the claim that I do.

I think that's way more insulting than being called "a chunkier version of"

I see what you mean but the women I am compared to are so stunningly beautiful and/or smart, classy, or outspoken that I take it as a compliment and also often think they're crazy but whatevs. Worship me if you must.

That is a gooood point. I hadnt thought of that. (And thank you. :B)

Some drunk woman once told me I looked like Star Jones. Pre-surgery. Because, I guess...we both happen to be brown and big. Her, formerly.

...I dont look a thing like Star Jones, it was SO annoying.

I get told I look like Jill Scott. I personally think its very far off. But she's absolutely beautiful and talented to boot, so I take it as a compliment. I think people see black, chunky, natural hair and automatically think that.

ETA - I know its for skinny celebs, but I couldn't think of anyone else I'm pegged for almost regularly.

All through high school my friends always called me Alicia Silverstone. I think Clueless came out after freshman year so she was big on everyone's mind. It was annoying and i hated it. I still get people telling me i look like her.

I only hated it because a. i didn't see it at all and b. they knew it annoyed me so they pressed the issue. You know how good friends are.. mess with you as much as they can

Being compared to a celebrity isn't so bad though. I think it's natural for people to try and associate things and people with that which is familiar and boy is our society into celebrities.

I think it *could* be an intended compliment, but it could also be an insult, depending on how it's stated. I would like to think it's meant to be a compliment but the people saying it don't really understand how easily it could be taken as an insult.

I like being compared to pretty celebrities, because it totally feeds my ego!

I've been compared to Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mary Alice Fallon, Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Audrey Hepburn, and Ava Gardner. And sometimes, from certain angles, I actually look like them. :P

For the record, Pitch does look like Thandie Newton, Megan does look like Alicia Silverstone, and Ash does look like Jill Scott. :*

I don't recall being told I remind people of anyone famous. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.

Penguin, I think you look like Laraine Newman from Saturday Night Live.



And no, I don't think it's an insult, other than if it's just because of being fat. People used to say I reminded them of Roseanne but mostly it's because I'm a smartass with dark hair and similar features. Not because I was fat. People have also said I look like Bjork which, while lovely, I can't see at all.

I've been told I look like Amy Lee (the singer, not the porn star) and Angelina Jolie (pretty sure that's just the combo of dark brown hair and greenish eyes). Since both women are beautiful and wonderfully talented, I take it as a compliment.

If somebody told me I reminded them of Camryn Manheim or Rosie O'Donnell, I'd probably take it as an insult, given that I really look nothing like either of them other than the fact we're all fat.

Now if somebody said, "You'd look just like Amy Lee if you lost 50 pounds," I'd be insulted. I think whether or not it's insulting depends on how somebody says it, ya know.

She was on Saturday Night Live in the 70's and is a very funny actress. I think it's the gorgeous cheekbones and hair.

I can totally see it but I think you're prettier. Nicole, as lovely an actress and human being as she is, tends to be a little gaunt. You have some of her qualities -- high cheekbones and beautiful eyes -- while being more... fleshed out.

Thank you for the compliment We often don't see ourselves as others do. This photo really was me just holding my new camera out point and click a long time ago..and I don't even recognize myself...I need to get back to that girl...whew...confident and full of allure. hehehe I love that photo - it is like an idealized version of me.
As to the broader topic:
My niece and I are only 2 years apart...she and I look nothing alike...her mother and I are half sisters - share the same mother. I look like my father - she looks like her father. I'm talll..she is short, I have the thin nose, blue eyes, and higher cheek bones,...she has a broader face, more full nose and lips and a brow and brown eyes ...where i am pale she is ghost white and covered in freckles i.e. we look nothing alike other than we are both fat. So, you have to know what we get all of the time - are you two sisters? And some asshats have the audacity to ask if I am her mother??? WTF? I know damn well I don't look 50 (sometimes that really hurts my feelings) and well...my niece is very blunt, to the point (things I am not either) and if she feels slighted she will tell you....the last time she responded with "not all fat people are related" the look of mortification on the woman's face...

And this winter someone compared my niece to Susan Boyle and she flipped out. My nice is over 20 years younger with auburn hair, and soft, young skin and looks nothing at all like her, not even body-wise.

The reality is people will be a-holes because they can be. And a lot of people see us, but, not really. It is sort of like how you have heard those horrible racist comments that "all black people look alike". I believe to a lot of people - all fat people look alike. People see what they want to see.

Being compared to a celebrity isn't so bad though. I think it's natural for people to try and associate things and people with that which is familiar and boy is our society into celebrities.
Alicia Silverstone should count herself lucky to be likend to you. you are beautiful missy...
