Josh Groban Has My Face


First off, I just want you all to know that I look like Josh Groban in a pretty big way.




I’ve known this for a while now. A friend in high school pointed it out to me, and a few weeks later my dad rushed into my room to tell me that a man with my face was singing the national anthem on television – it was Groban. Since he’s grown in popularity over the years, it’s been a frequent occurrence for someone to look at me with a puzzled expression, grin, and say, “You know who you look--” and before they can even finish, I’ll interrupt with “Josh Groban?” This seems to tickle everyone, except for my dentist who responded, “No, actually. I was going to say Jennifer Garner.”

What? No.
When someone is convinced that they look just like a celebrity when they completely don’t, it can be a little sad. I learned this during Doppelgänger Week a few years ago on Facebook when everyone replaced their profile photos with their celebrity lookalikes. This was the picture I used:



That week, every girl thought she was Anne Hathaway and every guy thought he was Paul Rudd. Oh, bless. Maybe Pauly Shore at best, man. Maybe.

On the flip side, when someone points out your likeness to someone else, it can be hard to see for yourself. After all, as your mother told you, you are a special snowflake made out of angel dust. How could anyone even come close to matching your features?

That’s typically how I feel. But guys, straight up, when I look at pictures of Josh Groban, I can’t help but laugh. It’s uncanny. I mean, there are differences, sure, the most obvious being his lack of breasts, but other than that I totally see it. It’s a resemblance with which I am honestly pleased. He’s a handsome man. I like to think I’m a handsome woman. Plus, he’s hilarious on Twitter.

The only bummer is I have not figured out a way to capitalize on this likeness. I’m still waiting for the Craigslist ad that says, “Looking for female Josh Groban impersonator for gender-bending bat mitzvah! $$$” So far, nothing. Keep your ear to the ground, folks.

By the way, if you’re not seeing the resemblance, no worries. I’m totally prepared to not look like a man. It’s all the same to me. Anyway, who is YOUR celebrity doppelgänger?


Oh wait, before I leave, I wanted to bring just a couple of things to your attention:

1. This dog can talk.

2. My husband, a teacher who works at a Title I school here in Brooklyn, is raising funds for a robotics program! This would make a huge impact in the lives of these students, kids who come from lower-income families who could really benefit from this engaging, unique math/science educational opportunity. Go check out his Donors Choose page to learn more about this program, and THIS WEEK ONLY, Disney will match any donation up to $100 if you use the promo code "DISNEY" at checkout. That means, if you give $10, $20 goes towards funding this awesome project. Seriously, that’s amazing. Donate now!

3. My giveaway of a Jules & Sparkle Necklace is still live! If you haven’t already entered, go get after it!

4. I still have some sponsor spots available, and this month, you can use the promo code “SWEETDEAL” to get 50% off! That’s just $7.50 to either write a guest post or have a Sponsor Spotlight written about you by me! Plus, your banner will hang out on my sidebar for the month. Sweet deal, indeed. Head on over to my Advertise Page to learn more.

Okay, now I’m really leaving. Have a lovely weekend! Here’s hoping you run into your celebrity doppelgänger and they invite you on their yacht or something!

  2. This was freakin' fantastic, and I love your fun attitude about the whole thing. I look like a dude too (my dad--dead ringer). Oh, and Anne Hathaway too, of course.

    1. Ha! Exactly like Anne Hathaway. It's always so great to have a male doppelgänger as a woman because you are always the prettier option.

  3. Hahahaha! I think you and Josh Groban could be twins. It's totally in the eyes. You're way prettier, though. I'm at a loss for my doppleganger . . . I've been told Amanda Seyfried, Wynona Rider, and Emma Watson. All who have big eyes. I guess that's the kicker.

  4. Oh my gosh, how funny! You even have such similar glasses!

    I've always been told I look like Jennifer Grey (Baby from Dirty Dancing). I think it's my big nose. I never saw the resemblance at all except for in one picture of myself a few years ago.

    P.S. I'm a pretty new reader/follower of your blog, and first time commenter. I saw you featured on another blog I read (which one escapes me at the moment). Love your writing and personality! :)

  8. This is awesome!! I am 100% for real when I say that if I remove my make up and part my hair down the middle I look just like Legolas in the LOTR movies. But if you look at my middle school pics I'm more of a Clarissa Explains it All.

    1. This cracked me up! I went to your profile picture, and I feel like I could imagine you as a Legolas-type, but definitely way prettier (and that's saying a lot because he is a pretty man).

  9. I LOVED this. Thanks for the laugh. Although, you may wanna step up your game with the facial hair. Groban has you beat, hands down.

    1. Thanks, Wendy! And looking like Janice Joplin is seriously pretty awesome. Just don't adopt any of her vices.

  11. Dude. Are you guys twins? That's hilarious! I don't have a celebrity doppelganger (other than a blonde, blue-eyed Anne Hathaway, obviously), except in high school I did one of those face recognition things to find your celebrity look-a-like, and it came back as 93% Vin Diesel. So there's that.

    1. Vin Diesel! I am dying. That is seriously one of the best I've ever heard.

  12. Hello! I've been reading your blog for about a week now and I love it! I'm an avid blog reader, and very very guilty of having trouble getting up the nerve to comment. But I thought this was the perfect post for a couple of reasons.

    1. I am a California to New York transplant. I came here for college, and stayed for work and love. I currently work in NYC, and am living with my boyfriend and his parents on Long Island. We have talked about moving into Queens (where he works), and I was startled at all the things crazy expensive apartments didn't have! California is the land of dishwashers, huge windows, and wonderful views for all! Currently we are still living with them because the price is right, but who knows where we will end up in the future-- although no matter what I bet it won't have a dishwasher.

    2. I owe so much of who I am to being on a robotics team in high school. I was a part of FIRST Robotics, which is a huge and amazing program. I actually had nothing to do with robotics, I handled the media, business, and development side of the program-- and it launched me into a career in the non profit sector. I hope your husband raises enough money that this program takes off, and perhaps one day he can start a FIRST Robotics team. I brought my boyfriend to a competition last spring (his dream is to be a teacher) and he fell in love with it. What is the deadline for the matching by Disney (in fact my boyfriend is a huge Disney fan-- I however was one of those kids who preferred to watch adult sitcoms in kindergarten, and works for a Disney Store in Queens until he can find a teaching job). I know you said this week only, but that was a week ago, so I was wondering if they would still match if I donated today.

    Thanks!

    -Emma
