Hehe, I really only got the Harvey Keitel thing because of that thing where a hopeless lookunalike thinks they can make themselves look like the person by wearing similar clothes (though I don't think the wardrobe in Reservoir Dogs was created by Man at C&A).

And the new one is Peter Kay, isn't it? Wait a sec... she can't possibly think she looks like... Edina from AbFab?

Believe it or not, she does. Or rather no, because there are people on the site listed as "Edina." She is just down as "Jennifer Saunders," so she really does think she looks like her...

Yes, most of the lookalikes rely (entirely) on wearing similar clothes, which is why I tried to avoid that in the ones above as it makes it too easy. Often though they leave out one tiny detail. Such as this delightful Maria Sharapova lookalike, who could so easily have got someone to photographs her on a tennis court, or even a field, but instead decided to rely on Sharapova's well known predilection for pressing herself up against back yard walls...

Ah yes, of course. Not the bastard child of Hughie Green and Richard Nixon after all.

Maria Sharapova is not often seen on the tennis courts in white stilettos, is she?

And is "Maria Sharapova" also listed under miscellaneous other blonde tennis players, like Anna Kournikova and that girl who scratches her arse on the poster?

Welcome, sexybex. We don't have any celebrities on Palimpsest, so I guess a celebrity lookalike is the next best thing.
