I am Preity Zinta

Celebrity Face Recognition at Myheritage.com

preity zinta cyberkitty charlotte church celebrity face recognition myheritageEver since I first heard about the online celebrity face recognition tool on www.myheritage.com I just knew I had to give it a try. You first have to create an account, then upload a photo of yourself and with their face recognition and mapping software they tell you which celebrity you resemble the most. Of the Indian celebrity's I am 56 % Preity Zinta and 47 % Kajol.

Of the International celebrity's my features most closely resemble Charlotte Church 66%, Heather Locklear 63 %, Joan Cusack 62 %, Jackie Kennedy 61 %, Heidi Klum 59 %, Jennifer Connoley 59 %, Gillian Anderson 56 %, Jennifer Garner 53 %, Shiri Appelby 53 %, Alicia Silverstone - 51 % and Kate Winslet 51% - quite a good looking list, I must say.

Apparently I also looked like a few guys like Matthew Perry- 63 %, Matt Damon 54 % and Jacques Villeneuve the formula one racer - 48 %. It's a good thing all these guys are the feminine type otherwise I would have been quite upset.

Many people have told me I looked a bit 'chinky' and I was not surprised to see some Chinese/Asian results also pop up like Son ye jin, Maggie Cheung and Song Hye Kyo whose picture is on the right.

Just to check the accuracy of this face recognition software, I ran Jennifer Aniston's photo to see what results the software would turn up. I found it worked quite well - another picture of Aniston turned up as her perfect celebrity double, though only with a similarity of 75 percent.

So, who's your celebrity twin ?
