I am not Steve Buscemi

In my eloquently titled post, "Seriously, WTF," I shared how My heritage celebrity look a like finder likened me to Steve Buscemi. While not pouring over the minute similarities between myself and Mr. Buscemi, I noticed that pretty much every single one had bangs that swept to the side like mine. And GASP! Mr. Buscemi's hat sweeps to the same side! Maybe that is the similarity.

To scientifically prove my theory, I rearranged my picture to see who else My Heritage said I looked like:
Picture flipped with bangs SWOOPING to the other side

Lindsey Lohan? An Asian? This is pretty damning evidence that it is all about the bangs. BTW. when did Katherine Heigl ever have brown hair, short brown hair at that!

Another picture where my hair looks red (the pictures fault, I assure you!)

Catherine Zeta-Jones is back, as well as Charlotte Church. Added by Sophia Bush and a VERY unflattering picture of Drew Berrymore

This one, I tried to make my hair look blonde again. I don't have any good pics of my time as a blonde on Facebook or on this computer, so I just did the old color-me-blonde. It looks awful, but I'm just trying to fool My Heritage. First with swooping to the left:

Seriously, Lindsey Lohan AGAIN! She's not Steve Buscemi but still. I really don't think any of these actresses look like me! Stupid My Heritage!

I've done it a couple of more times with the same picture, and never got a Steve Buscemi again, but I did get a creepy picture of Dakota Fanning. I've never been so weirded out by my own face before.

Who do you think you look like? Or who do people tell you look like? Is My Heritage dumb for you too? Please share!

I have no idea who Gael Garcia Bernal is but he is my top match, and I don't look anything like him. I also apparently look like Helena Christensen. Stupid website.

You actually DO look like Clara Bow and that is a good thing.

And THANKS so much for introducing me to this so that now I will always know I look like Elton John and Larry King and, basically, more dudes than ladies overall.

This is tooooo funny! I don't try it for fear I'll come out looking like Nick Nolte. :-)

At least you've got Jackie Kennedy Onassis in there. Despite MyHeritage being dumb... both you and Jackie O are GORGEOUS.
Love, Cita

This site is whack... how can someone look like both Sammi Cheng AND Alessandra Ambrosio? It must be the eyebrows (Hello, Carole Lombard). Ha! :)

That is hilarious! Not that you look like Steve B, but the fact that you did it a couple times.

And, I'm with you, when did Katherine H have short hair with bangs?

Hi, I came over here from Formerly Gracie...I loved the title of the post!
I think you look like Kristin Davis. Folks tell me I look like Sandra Bullock. I don't know if I do?
