    We Don't Agree Lol

    I think Sandra Bullock would work because of her character in 'Miss Congeniality.' My guy thinks Mira Sorvino would fit me better than Sandra. I can see why he'd say her, but I just have a hard time visualizing it, I guess. We do both agree on who...

    Courtney Love because she is a lot like me, but we look NOTHING alike. ...but maybe if they gave Courtney a good tan, and dark brown long hair than maybe she can look a little like me.

    Best Case Scenario??

    I would wish for Jessica Alba... her look matches my personality better. But going off looks it would probably be Jennifer Aniston.

    Woody Allen Before He Left Mia Farrow.

    I think the old Woody would be the one to play me. A lot of times I feel like a nowhere man. I think I'm better looking than him but there definately is a resemblence between us. I don't play the sax, and I'm not into the type of sex he's into. I also don't have a lot of...

    Winona Rider

    I think Winona Rider could do a good job portraying my personality and how I am.  She is a bit mysterious and has dark hair and eyes.

    Zach Braff

    I just have that nonsensical sense of humor - always daydreaming so that would definitely be me.  Plus I hear he's hung like an ox (that's why Natalie Portman was so into him) so wishful thinking on my part.

    Ellen page would play me. I adored her deadpan humor in Juno. To play me she would have to put on a bit of muscle, about five pounds or so and wear makeup but I think of myself as the Juno type. That is I think I look like the character. Mu husband says I ma crazy, that she is...

    This might sound like a weird choice to play a woman, but it's really not that weird, let me explain! First of all, there was no mention of the actresses in the question. So I started automatically thinking about actors. If John Travolta can play a fat lady, then I don't think...

    Debra Messing Or Bridget Jones (if She Were Real..)

    Just like Will and Grace, and like every Debra Messing movie, I'm always choosing the wrong guy. He's either gay, stupid, broke, an ex-con, a social reject, unemployed, a cheater..you get the picture.

    If there were an audience for my life story, I would want Charlie Kaufman to write the screenplay for one.  The only way to make it remotely interesting is to make it a bit absurd.  That said, I think Topher Grace would be good - wry, sardonic, unassuming, intelligent...

    Old Actor

    If they ever did decide to make a movie about my life, it would never go through because I think these young actors are too feminine for me. I do like Jared Lito, but he is way too pretty to play me. Maybe if I was alot younger and a model or something, then I'd pick him. But...
