I'm so confused

I was bored the other day, so I uploaded a photo of myself to one of those face-recognition websites. You know the type: the software analyzes your face and then tells you that you look like Angelina Jolie. I usually don't do them, because I am afraid the site will tell me I resemble Pete Doherty. I don't need that sort of stress in my life.

I'm not sure why I did it this time. It's not as if anything has changed. I never take photos of myself, but I do have screenshots from vlogs.

It appears that I look Oriental. I'm not sure if the MyHeritage people are having some fun with me or if this is serious. I've always thought of myself as looking very European.

Here are my celebrity look-alikes:

Clara Bow was an actress in silent films. I don't think I look like her. Maybe my hair looks a bit like that. I do wear tops like the one in this photo, though.

Yoon-jin Kim is an actress on one of the few shows I watch, Lost. I've seen a lot of her, and trust me, we do NOT look alike.

Nia Long: What??

Jang Nara: I think the program is broken. I see no resemblance. She's a Korean singer.

Bunko Kanazawa is apparently a prolific and well-known Japanese adult-film actress. I stole that description from Wikipedia. I have never heard of her, but I am not familiar with the Japanese adult-film industry.

Lee Hyori: Yet another Korean singer. I own a sweater like that, but I try to keep it on my shoulders. That's just me, though.

Kimberly Stewart: Now, this is just mean.

You had a decidedly oriental look at birth.

I may have spent some time in oriental countries and I am pretty sure that you don't look particularly Korean or Japanese...

And about the Japanese Adult Film industry there was this one time in Japan when I walked into a video rental store and found to my surprise...

Wow! That is just messed up.

Kimberley Stewart? Ouch!

I see similarities in the cheekbones. That's all. Definitely not alike.

I can see the resemblance with Ms. Stewart, except I bet you're like way smarter and your job is way cooler . . .

I would cut someone if they said I resembled Kimberley Stewart in any way.
Can I sing "China Girl" by David Bowie next time I see you?
