Worst. Title. Ever!

I dropped roughly 80lbs, from 260 down to 175-180. People have to double take when I get carded (my license expires in 5 months, don't feel like getting a new one right now because of it).

But also, apparently I now look like Richard Dreyfuss? At the grocery store today after work picking up some stuff, the lady at the register says "Hello, you look like Richard Dreyfuss." I didn't know who it was, and she turns to the older woman behind me and says "Doesn't he look like Richard Dreyfuss" and the woman agrees. I tell her "Thanks, I think" and go on my way.

I looked it up just now and I think this is him (only picture I found without a lot of facial hair, which I don't have.) I guess it's better than being thought of as Norm...

Seems like a very strange way for the lady to greet me though... maybe she just finished watching one of his movies before she came to work?

I have two thoughts.

1. My god that's an ancient picture of Richard Dreyfus.
2. Wow, Richard Dreyfus used to look like Val Kilmer. Unless that's actually a picture of Val Kilmer.

If one person says you look like Richard Dreyfuss, accept it as a complement.
If another person says you look like Richard Dreyfuss, start to wonder.
If a third person says you look like Richard Dreyfuss, better start heading to Devils Tower.

I had to search for a young picture without facial hair to see how crazy the woman was. Of course everything that comes up in google is a bald old man.

Not sure if that's really him, or someone else (again, google) Found it on this site.
I guess there's this too: http://www.top10films.co.uk/archives/5002

Yeah, that's him. But Jesus does he ever look like a young Val Kilmer (think Top Gun) in that picture. In other pictures from American Graffiti not so much. But in that one you would begin to think maybe Val was his illegitimate son.

Edit: Oh, and I don't think you look like Richard Dreyfus. I think you look like a young Val Kilmer. Smiley: nod

You don't even know what I look like. I'm technologically inept, and don't own a cell phone or digital camera.

If you loose more weight will they think your Marlyn Manson?
I'd be really happy if people mistake you for a famous person. It shows your making great progress in your weight loss program!
