Because I've quite enjoyed responding to this for other people:

Based entirely on my personality (so block what I really look like out of your mind), hunt down a "played by" who you think would best represent me. Reply here with a picture or link.

I post a lot of self-portraits so I can imagine this might be rather difficult.

The photo won't display, so I stuck it in my LJ gallery for posterity:



I love this choice.

Sorry, I cannot ignore what you look like, but I think I've found the entire package, beauty and brains.

And why should we ignore what you look like? Shouldn't the actress who plays you look like you?

I don't really understand why this meme says that. Most people have chosen smiley brunettes, which is fine by me.

Also, your choice rocks. Although I think if we'd swapped places in Labyrinth, I might not have been quite so cold to David Bowie.

If I had never seen you before, based on your writings and what I think you look like, I would picture you as someone who looked kind of like Samantha Mumba (I think that's her name - the girl in The Time Machine movie). Attractive, exotic looking, dark, but not too dark of skin, fit, always smiling, etc.

I love that she's smiling in almost every photo that comes up in a Google image search for her.

I think you know why this is impossible for me, at least off the top of my head.


I will be pondering it though and see if I can come up with something.

We should find a way to conflate our life stories and then play each other and confuse everybody.

Don't know if you saw Happy-Go-Lucky, but the main character seemed a good personality fit for you.

Makes a lot of funny faces - check. Big gummy smile - check. Talks with her hands - check. I'd say that's a go!

I would happily wear my hair in pigtails every day for the rest of my life if that could actually happen.

Neither Maggie Gyllanhaal nor Anne Hathaway quite have the right mix of quirks, frivolity and SRS to carry you off to a tee, but they're a good place to start.

After a bit more thought I'm gonna say maybe Lizzy Caplan could do a decent job.

No, I'm not thinking about it too much, honestly.

:D Found this one IMDB: "Hands down, the Streep, obviously. - When asked who she wants to work with." Good taste!

Rachel Weisz? You both have rather distinct diction.

I like her. She seems like she doesn't take herself too seriously.
