the one where maggie gyllenhaal is stealing my life

It started out fairly innocently. It was 2006, and I was working at Express.

"Do you know you look like Maggie Gyllenhaal?"

I protested. Then I went home. And saw an altered version of my face when I googled her. Some angles made her look gorgeous. Others, more like Quasimodo. No gray area. Very polarizing. It. Was. Terrifying.

After that initial day, I would literally (and I literally mean literally) would be told this at least twice a day. I began to question every comment. Was this a compliment? Was this a dig? WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS MEAN? 

As the years have gone by, it's all but stopped. I dyed my hair blonde, then let it go back to it's natural baby poo color. I grew it out long, and then earlier this year I chopped it off.

And then I saw this.




MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL STRIKES AGAIN. SHE'S STOLEN MY HAIR, MY DIMPLES, AND MY AWKWARD CHEEKS.

It's on, Maggie. It's about to get all sorts of Quasimodo up in here.

It's a compliment. One time I was told "you look like that Cameron Diaz, cept You're not skinny like she is. "
