This is not my cousin

Isn’t it interesting how we describe people by which celebrity they look the most like or who would play them in a movie?

Rose always gets Kate Hudson.  Dominica favors Rosalie Dawson.  Elle’s been told she looks like Taylor Swift.  The other day I saw my cousin, The Catering Elf, and I thought, wow, it’s crazy how much she resembles Marion Cotillard.

I usually get early Mary Steenburgen or a young Teri Garr, Lisa Kudrow with dark hair, Nathalie Baye.  It’s weird to see yourself as other people see you.  I’m feeling less certain about who would play the movie version of me.
