it's beginning to look a lot like

These guys really look/ed alike.

These ladies don't.
When people tell people they look like celebrities it's very boring.  I'd rather have someone tell me I look like an inanimate object.  Like, "OMG - you look just like a chair!"  That's at least mildly interesting.  Or, "Wow - has anyone ever told you that you look just like a boiled ham?"  And you might be insulted, but this would be a mistake.  People love chairs and boiled hams.  And they are beautiful things to some people.  

And if not that, wouldn't you rather be compared at least to a neat cartoon or fictional character than a dumb old person?  Like if someone was all, "Hey - you really remind me of Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast."  You'd know what they think of you.  
They'd think you were an awesome fat person who wears too much makeup and is a little too flashy for her own good.  Or maybe someone says, "HEY.  YOU.  You're Willy Wonka!  You're HIM."
So that probably means you're an amazing dresser, own a successful candy company, have great musical abilities and hang out with odd colored little people who are mediocre dancers that can't really cartwheel to save a donkey.  Also, maybe, you don't mind child murder.

Or maybe you look like a sleepy puppy.

ORPAH!!  NO!  ORPAH.  ORPAH, HUSH!!  Puppies are trying to sleep.

SO AGREED on the Owen Wilson/Dennis Hopper mindfuck. When I first saw that Dennis Hopper photo I actually thought, "Someone included a photo of Owen Wilson in this Hopper memorial, how embarrassing." GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS!
