Okay, who in the famed world of celebrities do you look like?

Is spicyapple the sister of Anne Hathaway??? (big conspiracy theorist...)

D'accord. I threw down the gauntlet. Now run with the rest.

I went around Manchester in heatwave during the summer wearing sunglasses, stubble and my hair just in a mess. Apparently a group of people thought I was Sawyer from Lost :confused: thankfully I cut my hair a week later. :D
