Who Should Star in the Movie Version of Your Life?

Pretend a movie is being made about your life. Which actor would you want cast in the role of YOU?

I'd be pretty excited if either of these ladies played me.





And who would you pick to play YOU?

Jill Scott, hands down!

or if we're being artistic..Halle Berry, lol

B. Diederich said...

Julia Ormond (Legends of the Fall) would play the nice, guiet part of me--don't know who would play the bitter, crass me!!

Julia said...

I love your picks :) I would love Kate Beckinsale or Amy Adams!

sandra said...

For me..Scarlet Johansson! Love your picks, too :)

clorivak said...

ooo...this is a tough one, i'm going to have to think about this for awhile and get to you!

K.Line said...

Great question! Just asked my husband who would play me and he said Catherine Zeta Jones (but she'd have to cut her hair). Needless to say, I can totally get with that. Secretly, I think she's the most gorgeous person in Hollywood. What's the bet that my husband has some awareness of that and he's just pushing my buttons :-)

No mind. I still say her! It's creative license.

jennifer from pittsburgh said...

Love this question! Who's a lush? Tara Reed, she can play me ;)

erin@designcrisis said...

Tough question! maybe Isla Fisher? I wish I could say Audrey Tatou, but, alas, I ain't that cute.

LOVE your choices, btw!

miriam said...

love your picks! i'd love audrey tautou to play me!

diane said...

Frances McDormand, because we share the same personality. And she is similar to me physically in her build and laid back style.

parkaveprincess said...

Love your blog and I'm definitley following! Modern day actress to play me... I'm thinking I can only trust Kate Winslet to capture me

Georgia B. said...

love it! great post.

don't know if she acts, as she is a director, but if she did act too, i would want sofia coppola to play me.

i love her!

The Haute-Shopper said...

I'd love for Zooey Dechanel to play me. She's quirky, can be blunt and rude, but is kinda cute. But until that day comes, I guess I'll just have to pretend I'm her...

Milly said...

i'm going to pick someone that has similar features ( i wish but you get the point)
Salma Hayek or Eva Mendes

Dooder City said...

I always say parker posy.

Andhari said...

I'm too asian to say Jessica Alba. So maybe Lindsay Price, she's always so classy. And asian :P

creative kerfuffle said...

bette midler or kathy bates could play me. or maybe a plump renee zellweger. i love your choices : )

Elizabeth Marie said...

Zooey Deschanel!!!!!

I always picture you like Janeane Garofolo p.s.

Diana said...

it's kind of hard to find a half mexican-half asian girl so i will just say ugly betty because people say i look like her :P

Pyzahn said...

A young me would be Scarlett Johansson (if I can play with Ryan Reynolds during filming) and an "old" me would be Renee Russo.

What!!! You didn't say it had to be realistic.

When did Janeane G. go all glam...looks like collagen and lip liner. But I forgive her, because I love her...where's she been lately?

Raina said...

I've been told umpteen times that I look like Sandra Bullock, but me personality is closer to Phyllis Diller's.

La Belette Rouge said...

I have been told I look like: Monica Lewinsky, Marie Osmond, and when I was younger and redder I used to get a lot of Molly Ringwald. But, I am going to go with Selma Hayak. I know that I look nothing like her but I am going for post-modern casting and she is beautiful and it is my movie and I can do what I want to.;-)

Zoë said...

the lady that lives down the lane...she's odd. she could play me better than i ever could.

Kristin said...

SJP, of course we look nothing alike but I adore her.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Great pick droll!
Easy...I want George Clooney! ...I just want to hang around him & visit his Italian villa after the shoot... I think he'd love the challenge for this role, no?

TERI REES WANG said...

I have been mistaken for Winona Ryder and more recently Tina Fey but I think it should be...
Ally Sheedy..for sure! ;P

LiLu said...

Hmmmm. I'm gonna go Natalie Portman, since she's the one people tell me I look the most like. But if looks don't matter, Sarah Chalke (Elliot from Scrubs).

Jake Hammell said...

It'd have to be someone like David Spade or Seth Green. They're the right amount of dorky, humorous, and pitiful to pull it off.

I don't mean pitiful in a bad way either, more like "Let's feed that poor guy and offer him shelter. He looks hungry and cold."

The title of the movie would be "Feed Jake, He's been a Good Writer." in reference to the song 'Feed Jake.'

apriliniowa said...

Love this idea-you've picked two great ladies. Janeane is rather cool. I'd have to go with Chloë Sevigny for myself methinks.

NIKI said...

So what you are saying is... You do not have sun in L.A ? :P

Kitten said...

I've been told I look like Bebe Newirth (Lilith from Cheers), but I think I'm more like Kristin Davis (aka Charlotte from SATC). I wouldn't mind if she played me in a movie, or even Julia Roberts.

Kellie said...

That is easy. Amy Poehler from SNL. Although she's not on it anymore. I've had several people tell me I look like her and she's goofy like me. Kinda a nut! :)

Chrystina said...

I used to do this " question of the day" text msg to everyone, and I asked this question. It's so fun to hear everyones choices. :)

I think both of your choices are amazing talents. They are so hilarious and beautiful and intelligent all in one.

I can't really decide who would be best to play me, Im pretty complex haha. But I'd have to say like Scarlett Johansson or Charlize Theron!!!

E.K. said...

My friends would say the guy that plays Fox Mulder would play me and I say to them, "go to hell." That dude's creepy.

I'll go with...Crispin Glover. That's more my-style o' creepy.

Bon Don said...

That is a good question... are we basing this off of looks or the actor we like?

drollgirl said...

hey bon don! i cannot access your blog. i always want to stop by but don't have a way to get in touch. i hope you get this!

and you can go by whatever you want! i went by actresses that sort of SEMI look like me and can play roles well with freaks like me. ;)

janelle (drollgirl)

Felicia said...

It would either have to be one of the THREE Asian women in the business, or someone in a mask of my face.

Char said...

oh...I love Janeane. I just love her.

eh...me...hmmmm, I want the personality of cameron diaz with sandra bullock's looks.

frances said...

this is tough, i'd want someone a bit rubbish, maybe sarah michelle gellar. hahaha. x

Girl Japan said...

So she has to be quirky like me, I would say "Isla" from Confessions of a Shopaholic and "Drew barrymore"

Amy said...

I choose Anna Faris - cause she can play spacey goofy really well and I like to drink a lot...

Absolutely Not Martha said...

drew barrymore or adam sandler.

thereddeer said...

I have no idea - some have said I look like Neve Campbell or whatever her name is :P

But if I could choose anyone, it would have to be Winona Ryder - she always has cute hair :D

down and out chic said...

ok i asked b to help me with this...first he said tina fey (which is totally cool with me) and then he said audrey tatou...i love her but i'm not sure she's ridiculous enough to play me.

sherri said...

great post! loved ready all of the responses and your picks are great. Hmmmm. I think I'd pick Cate Blanchett with a dye job. Or Asia Argento if she could do an American accent well.

Fragrant Liar said...

I'm going to be brave and say Michelle Pfeiffer. My girls always tell me we dance like each other (per her subpar performance in Grease 2). :)

Savvy Mode SG said...

gees, i don't know. have to think about this.

...love Maegan said...

um Janeane Garofolo would do you so well ...but you're way prettier than she is even on her good days.


...I have no idea who would play me. ...wait ....WILL FERRELL. ahahhaahhaha.

...love Maegan said...

btw, this is SUCH A GOOD QUESTION.. ..I went back up and read everybody's ...so goooood.

E said...

Lord, I don't know. People say I look like that chick from Sisterhood of the Traveling pants - the dark-haired one...

alissa said...

kirsten dunst - i like her personality and i get told i look like her. so i think it would fit. except the teeth.

Chessa! said...

I adore Jeanine Garafolo. so much. Daria, Reality Bites, Cable Guy!! love her.

I would have to choose Penelope Cruz...she's nutty and latina and passionate and feisty...I adore her.

Charlotte said...

I don't look like anyone! So you would have to morph Gilda Radner, Tina Fey and Drew Barrymore to get me, well me on a good day.

TheBeautyFile said...

GOOD QUESTION!

hmmm....Kerri Russell...nah, maybe someone with a little more bite...Chloe Sevigny...slightly less...well...maybe a mixture of the two!

Carlotta said...

love your picks!! I'd love Brigitte Bardot because she was so hot and animal lover..or Jennefier Aniston I just love her :))

Penny said...

Well,I love Cate Blanchett,but she's way too classy a broad to play me,so I would have to go with Drew Barrymore.She's more 'casual',like me.

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Ooh. Can I choose Lindsay Lohan? She doesn't look much like me, but at least then the movie would get a ton of publicity and I'd be famous.

Hanako66 said...

I would want a young phoebe cates....or some other half asian starlet:)

Gabbi said...

Kate Winslett, but she'd have to dye her hair and pretend to be Mexican! :^)

gangsta bride said...

i want it to be thandi newton, but it would probably end end being amanda bynes or some shit like that.

one little simitopian said...

It could only be Helena Bonham carter!!!!

Chrystina said...

So yesterday I was in bed and I jumped up and was like " KATE WINSLET!!!" it hit me, I didnt list my MOST FAVORITE, NUMBER ONE CHOICE to play me... EVER!! And that would be Kate Winslet, so there you go hahaha ;)
