"I'll admit I may have seen better days,
but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail,

Jane Fonda and I looked a lot alike when I was 20 :)Now I have no idea
yes, Jane Fonda .. she and I had the same haircut in the Klute days .. I had someone come up to me on the street and ask me if I was Jane Fonda lol .. this is Way Back When.
Christopher Lee. Oh, alright then - John Hurt.
Helen Mirren. She's older than me, but I think she's fantastic.
Of course she is
Although we look nothing alike: Judy Davis. She's stupendous.
The Australian actress?
I love Judy Davis !! She has a good face!
Not going to be a happening thing. Unless as an insomnia aid.
Meryl Streep. She is so gifted and extraordinarily talented that I'm sure she can pull off playing a man.
You love high cheekbones?
Meryl Streep . . . I think she could play a “perfect me” with all my complexities. I also agree . . . She is xtremely talented and I am sure she could probably pull it off playing a man.
She's a firm fav here
Do you mean play in your film? I'm too new for a speaking part so I'll be an extra - I pick a glamorous beauty like Hedy Lamarr and she will drape over furniture in the background miming "Rhubarb Rhubarb" wearing the pick of the costume department's frocks and hats.If it's my film then I bags silent actress Alla Nazimova! I want it to be a silent film and then everyone can have fun prancing around over-acting and miming "Rhubarb Rhubarb".
It's a gay storyline in my case so overacting is par for e course
Expecting it to be terrific then!
In my younger years, I would have liked Maureen O’Hara, now it’s more Bette Midler.
Both are beauties
Oh crumbs! It would be way too boring to bother with! However, to play along with the idea, maybe Larry Olivier could lift it out of the humdrum.
Btw: Yes, I KNOW he's been dead for decades, but at least that would give it some added interest.
Lawrence Olivier can still out act most of Hollywood...even while dead!
Raymondo , only the best
When Sir Larry was at his best (i.e. for most of his life) he was literally THE best. No one could even come close!
Smash those plates
Diane Keatonas Lizzy
A true beauty
I would love to see Lassie again! Lol
Joanna Lumley. She bears no resemblance whatsoever to me, but it's how I'd like people to think of me!
Reach for the stars x
As a kid, I watched Bogart in the role of Father O'Shea --"The Left Hand Of God"-- and figured he could do justice to any character, even mine, and my opinion has not changed.
He always screamed strength and right to me
I don't know who I look like.Happy Easter John, the Prof and family.Greetings Maria x
You know YP, you could be right there!! x
Greetings Maria lollobridgida
In my dreams, Emma Thompson. In reality it would probably be Janine Duviski.
Off to google duviski
Gena Davis in The Long Kiss Goodnight then, Gena Rowland now.
Bette Davis, I'm a soft touch, so her edge would add to my character.
I am still (and always have been) Audrey Hepburn inside my head - but realistically I never was!
Good for you weave xx
Marlene Dietrich. In absence of the wildly sophisticated and sardonic Dietrich, child actress Shirley Temple will do - what with the rosy cheeks, the curly hair, the exuberance ...
Dorothy Atkinson: her role in ‘Mr. Turner’ as his faithful adoring housekeeper should have won her an oscar, but sadly didn’t.LX
I need to see thi movie x
There would be only one actor in the world capable of playing my complex angst-filled role effectively - me!"Yorkshire Pudding - The Movie" starring Yorkshire Pudding as Yorkshire Pudding, sponsored by The Yorkshire Pudding Company.
Why on earth would anyone want to make a film about me? If there had to be one, then Haydn Gwynne.
I met her years ago. Rather delightful
Maria Schnieder in my youth, Judi Dench for my later years.
Sally Field. I don't look anything like her though ! Happy Easter John xxx
You like me you REALLY like Me!!
When I first wake up in the morning Frankinstein would be appropriate.
A broad to be reccond with
I will have to say Mrs Overall in the afternoons now x
Me too a.minute after getting up in the morning
Judy Dench for no other reason than liking her personality.
Do you too have a voice like chocolate
Meryl Streep .... because she's my favorite and she can pay anyone!
Even you Bob!
If she were still alive, Patty Duke. Short in stature, square jaw, blue eyes, capable of being goofy (her acting, my natural state sometimes) but also serious. I don't have her comic timing, but I thankfully also do not have her bipolar disorder, something that several members of my extended family do battle.
A miracle worker!
Lucille Ball - Lorraine
Ah a red head
Kathy Bates for me, too. With a sledgehammer.
With or without her sledgehammer?
I heard her voice on my holidays-turned around & there she was x
I think Bill Nighy would portray me perfectly - lugubrious, monosyllabic, world-weary.
I would have really liked either Tony Hancock or Spike Milligan,
Couldn't think of anyone, but husband proferred Judy Dench, and then added 'in her youth of course'.
lol Think of all the love you would get!
Michael Stipe, since I keep hearing that I look like him anyway.
Jennifer Saunders in her role as “Edina”.......MaggieB
oh for sure Tracey Ullman. But she will have to train to use a compound bow, face off big bears & bigots and learn how to ride a mustang...but Im pretty sure she already knows how, AND with humor. :D Jack Black? OMG what a picture you left in my mind, John! LOVE IT!
Miss Piggy as my young self and Dawn French as me now x
.•.*.•.*.•.*.•.*.•.*.•.* Happy Easter, John and Company!!! () ()(·_·)(,...,_}O.....(¤)...(*)(#)
My kids decided years ago that Sigourney Weaver was the one.
They have good tatse
Julia Roberts. And happy Easter to you and yours!
Way to go
When I was young, I was told I looked like a young Gina Lollabrigida. Now? a slightly chubby Isabella Rossillini.Managed to lose five pound by getting a straight day shift job. Night shifts were killing me, evenings were just as bad. My shift cycle had killed my body.
Not a bad pedigree
That's my gal
When I was young folks said I looked like Merle Oberon. Now they say Patricia Heaton from Everybody Loves Raymond.
Merle Oberon was a real beauty x
Valerie Bertonelli...then and now...
When I was young Ingrid Boulting ... today its Isabella Rossellini , both women have a round face like I do.* Would a George post ... love that scotty boy!!!
He's got a second wind recently
That is nice to hear for dear George.
Interesting question, Jon. One that asks more than it seems....who is the person you are, or who you want to be...do you imagine who you are and was. And why. No idea, and actually no interest. I'd be more interested in see who people who actually are and will be....love to see my girls in 25 years, my son the same. I know who I was, what I did. I don't need anyone to fluff it up or deflate it. It was what it was. Cheers, pal.Mike
I love this question, as you say it opens up so many facets
I hope I'd need someone spunky and sporty for the early years, but I'm afraid the older me requires a somewhat Humpty Dumpty figure...sort of a Emma Stone becomes a chunky Angela Lansbury. Interesting question as most of your questions are!
I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of themPlease dont be abusive x
