OK, so some people insist I look like Brad Renfro. A lot like Brad Renfro, they say. "Hey, there goes Brad Renfro," they say. And it has gotten out of hand. SO here is me:
And here is Brad:
Of course, I picked those pictures, so they aren't as subjective as some, but you can see some similarities, and some differences.
However, recently, an episode happened which made me rethink the whole lookalike thing. I dated (a long time ago) someone named Amber. Now, she wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but she was genuinely nice, and not too bad to look at. After awhile, the not so smart thing got the best of me, and she got needy and clingy, and I had to let her go (I say that like I was her boss, "Well, we are so sorry to have to let you go"). Anyway, I have had problem after problem with her, so finally I told her to get over it, stop talking to me, and that's that.
But that's not that, is it? No. It's not. We have a mutual friend, and some strife was caused when our friend still talked to me. Our friend is a she. Her name is Lydia. Lyds, I call her. Lyds is a great person, and fun to talk to, and interesting, so of course, Amber was jealous. As an aside, I am a flirty guy, and I am sure I have flirted with Lydia before, but this is not that type of relationship at all. You will just have to take my word for it.
So Lyds also teases me about looking like Brad Renfro, and when we last talked on MSN messenger, I put some Brad lookalike pictures on my messenger, and we had a good laugh. Lyds thought it would be funny to send some links of those pictures to Amber. A few of those pictures were from the movie "Bully" and they showed Brad dancing half naked on stage. Amber was PISSED! "Somebody has a crush on Josh" she remarked. "Why would he send you half naked pictures of himself?" She then asked, and signed off before Lydia could explain.
Now, in the interest of the story, I have to say, Amber has seen me naked. We went out for the better part of a year, and we were intimate. Yet she STILL thought he was I, and those pictures were mine.
Maybe, I look like him. Just a little. But I don't do blow!
