So, on Carol's advice, I went to MyHeritage, which does this face recognition mumbo jumbo and tells you what celebrities you look like.
And I have to say, though Carol's results were good, I'm unimpressed.
First I ran this picture of me in the garish pink sari.
And the software suggested that I looked like Zsa Zsa Gabor (64%), Vladimir Lenin (67%), Leonardo DiCaprio (57%), or Halle Berry (51%). Ummm....Vladimir Lenin? Really?
So I thought, OK, the face isn't too clear, and my head is a little tilted. I'll try another photograph. And I loaded in the next picture, of me sun-kissed and fabulous in Kerala (wearing yellow...yeah).
And the software suggested I looked 67% like Rajiv Gandhi. I really, really don't like that I look more like historic politicians of the Third World than, you know, a Hollywood starlet. But such is life, I suppose...
Other (female) results for the second picture include Liza Minnelli (62%), Emma Watson (54%), Natalie Imbruglia (52%), Ava Gardner (53%), Neve Campbell (51%), or Monica Lewinsky (51%). Oddly enough, with the exception of Liza Minnelli, I look more like Chad Michael Murray (59%) than any woman listed. Damn. Good thing it's still in beta.
