Site Find: Your Celebrity Twin
August 2, 2006
With the help of algorithms, MyHeritage.com recognizes your face structure and compares it to 3,200 celebrity faces in its database to come up with your match. The Israel based site is mainly intended for genealogy and heritage purposes, but has a database of 3,200 celebrities to use for fun and self-education for us who are not charting family threes. After your picture has been scanned and recognized, you get up to ten results, which can vary greatly. This writer scanned five different pictures, and though most of the celebrity twins were new each time, Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and Selma Blair were constantly among the ten results. Incidentally, my father and sister both got Keanu Reeves as their main match as well, a good indication of how well it works.
