Celebrity Look-Alike

When I was a teen-ager people told me that I looked like Winnie from Wonder Years all the time.

And when I say all the time, I mean I got comments about it, every single day, everywhere I went, a couple times a day.

It got to the point that I started wondering if I should apply to be her understudy or something.
Personally, I could never see it myself especially since she's like 2 years younger than me (an insult when you're 16) and my hair was way bigger than hers, but what do you think? Was she my long-lost twin?

So the other day I wondered what had ever happened to my teen-age celebrity look-alike, so I looked her up to see if she was as messed up and confused as most child actors.

Surprisingly I found out that the reason I haven't heard much about her the last twenty years is because instead of wild parties that would land her in the tabloids, she graduated summa cum laude from college, has written a book, and has had a mathematical theorem named after her.

Then I found the name of her book and realized....
Yep. She is more messed up than I realized.

I saw her on a TV show about a year ago, promoting this book. i think she is a Harvard grad. I always thought she was so cute, but I was always a little jealous because I wanted Fred Savage to like ME! ;-)

Well, not now of course, cause now, everyone thinks I look like Rosie O'Donnell - fat and funny.

But, when I was young...oh, I will have to see if I can find a photo.
