Has anyone ever told you ...

Silence of the Lambs came out in 1991. In 1991, at least one person a day said to me, "Has anyone ever told you that you look like Jodie Foster?" and I would say, "Ha ha, I hear that a lot. Thank you." Because honestly, I could do worse, right? Anyway, since then I've been able to chart her successful movie releases just by tracking how often I was asked that question.

So, I ran across this photo the other day.


Hmm, I said to myself, I just don't spend enough time making up stories for my kids. At dinner I said, "Did I ever tell you about the time I met Oscar the Grouch?" They were surprised and asked several questions. ("Was Oscar mean to you? Did you meet Ernie and Bert, too?") I said, "Later I'll show you a picture!" I was convinced they would immediately call it a fraud. But no. Hook, line, and sinker. I guess my kids think I look like Jodie Foster, too.

One of these days the girls will wander by the television as "The Accused" or "Silence of the Lambs" is airing and you are gonna be in a world of hurt.

It's all fun and games with Oscar...

Then again, it could just be "Freaky Friday", so not to worry.

I love this picture, and the story. I am always fighting the urge to tell the Little Elf giant whopping lies. . . Not always successful.

Thanks for sharing!

Personally I always thought you looked more like Meg Ryan. Especially when you smile. But you look smarter. Also she has a pointier chin. Must be the set of the large lovely eyes, lips and short nose.
