  1. I really liked the celebrity look a like gadget, but now I have to download a toolbar to use it?? No way. I'm not going to use this website until this problem is fixed.
  2. You TOTALLY do look like Mischa Barton! I've been told I look like two different celrieitbes. They are Christina Ricci and Kelly Clarkson. In Jr. High and High school I did look like Christina. But I never did see the Kelly Clarkson resemblance. I still always say my celebrity doppelganger is Christina even though I know I don't look like her anymore. She got super skinny and I.... did not.
