They really do look a little bit alike

(This post is so frighteningly offtopic that it is impossible to quantify the issue!)

Last year some time I was back in Cleveland, and I saw my first episode of Ghost Whisperer. I made the offhand comment during a commercial break that Jennifer Love Hewitt in this show (with her new darker hair) looked a lot like Alyssa Milano (if you went back a hairdo or three -- both Alyssa and Rose among the Charmed coven change their hair styles and colors a lot!).

I wasn't saying they were twins or anything, just that it would be easy to confuse them at first glance....

My father disagreed with me and suggested that I might be a little bit crazy. Or if nothing else that I did not know what actresses looked like :-)

Anyway, looking at the following two pictures, as a baseline example:

Jennifer Love Hewitt    Alyssa Milano

It should be easy enough to see why I suggested there might be a similarity, I think.

Which is not to say that I am not crazy; but if I am it is for other stuff, not for this! :-)

Yup, I with you on that one Michael.  Surely the two of us can't be mad - can we?!  :)

You didn't take your medication again, did you!

OK, OK, they look a little bit alike.

Good to know it isn't just me! :-)

As an avid reader of your blog I am a little (just a little) disapointed that you do not refer to the differences in character

(pun intended)

Heh heh heh.... you can imagine the arguments in the bullpen about which character would sponsor the post? :-)

That has to be the worst picture JLH has ever taken. And one of the best for AM. Hardly a valid comparison!

# Michael S. Kaplan on 4 May 2006 10:51 AM:

Well, the clipping and resizing to make sure we were looking at similar sizes may be responsible for some of that (also the picture of AM was clearly touched up while the JLH one was not), so it is hardly a fair quality comparison....

But the fact remains that the similarity is fairly obvious. :-)
