Celebrities you have been compared to.

I get this one sometimes:


(it went so far as my college nickname being "Macch" among a group of girls across the hall from me)

Other times it's Gilbert Gottfried.

My friend says I look just like Jonathan Adout:


So... you?

Jimmy Baron (DJ for 99x in Atlanta) told me I look like Elijah Wood. I disagree.

Hrm, my cousin, a classmate and by extension that class, a group of friends, and a random German guy I ran across in Tokyo all have compared me to Jesus. For some of these people it has been a running gag for years though one of two of them have not brought it up that last month or two. Once a cashier at CompUSA asked me if anyone had told me I look like someone who once played Jesus but their name escapes me at the moment.

Beyond that, with my last name of Bacon and first name starting with a 'K' I field a lot of questions about bloody Kevin Bacon. I could not help but laugh the one time a Kevin was called by my name last year though it seems without years of being called Kevin when someone flubs my name the humour was lost on those around me.

I've been compared to Brad Pitt. As in "you're no Brad Pitt."

I get compared to Tim Robbins a lot. Someone on here said it in the "post a pic of yourself" thread. I don't see it though.

In high school, the hawt girl said I reminded her of Chevy Chase.

"He's so funny. He makes me laugh, just like you."

(translation: You ain't got a chance of ever getting any. Can we just be friends)

Dave Matthews. It all started in college when Dave went huge. Then it died off then all of a sudden in the last two months I've had about 4 people mention it. I grew a beard and evidently Dave did something recently with a beard?

Oh well. I'm me and thats that.

For some reason I got Kurt Russell a few times about 10-15 years ago. I don't see it.
