MorphWorld: "Sybil Temtchine, a dead ringer for Sarah Silverman"


So wrote Jeannette Catsoulis in an April 14, 2011 New York Times review of "Footprints," starring Ms. Temtchine as a young woman who wakes up with amnesia face down on the sidewalk in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater and spends the day from sunrise to sunset entirely on Hollywood Boulevard, trying to figure out who she is.


I see the resemblance.


For those with a prosopagnosia variant, that's Ms. Temtchine up top and Ms. Silverman in the second photo.

Eyebrows look wrong, jaw looks wrong, chin looks wrong... it may be the pictures, but I don't see it.

Except the girl above is MUCH hotter.

I have slight prosopagnosia...I recognize people in person by their kinetics as opposed to their looks...in photos, much easier. Never caused me problems because I compensate...and it is often funny to others when they first realize that I have this skill...or lack. While at a stoplight, I saw a friend walking two blocks ahead and I asked my ex if it would be alright if I stopped and asked if he needed a ride. She couldn't believe that I could recognize him simply by his walk...a quarter mile ahead. Or badly when I was talking to a woman that I had hung out with previously...along with her sister. Friend of mine ran into us and later on was commenting how how hot it would be to be with twins...never one of my fantasies, but so goes it...he kept bringing it up, so I thought it was a fetish of his, and said something to the girl later on as a joke...and she jokingly replied "so you wouldn't want to be with me and my sister"....didn't even notice! It was so easy to see which was which until someone said they were twins, and now...I wish I had full prosopagnosia because I can't figure out which is which!

I believe Oliver Sacks has this too...and he is a pretty well known neurologist / writer...
