Not only gender, the complete looks. So now I have to change my image of kong from Philip Seymour Hoffman to "the most beautiful woman of all time". :blink:

Philip Seymour Hoffman is more accurate, I just wanted to mix it up.

She looks like an 80s Natalie Portman in that pic. Never would've guessed it was Isabelle Huppert.

Yes. And it's true in my case. I actually am both Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Sorry I've pimped one of my movies a lot and pretended not to be half-Canadian, eh.

Same here, only after googling the image. Kinda cool surprise there. In contrast to other women that were teenager bed room poster defaults called "most beautiful woman of all time", her acting and movie choices from the late 80s through the 2010s were also pretty interesting, so there's that. :poshclap:

By the way, with 40s & 50s actresses (and actors) avatars, I seldom make the assumption that this is what the user looks like.
I totally think it for Ebbywebby though! And joachim, too! Seems a little angry to me. Maybe because of the many animation titles in official lists. :D

My avatar doesn't look angry, does it? You're still thinking of my previous pic.
In case you're wondering what I really look like, this is a real picture of me.

Isabelle Huppert. That's a pic MUBI posted on Facebook months ago and I've been obsessed with it ever since. She always looks stunning, but I particularly appreciate this hairstyle for her.

I don't identify with a gender, so either way works for me.
Never would have guessed that pic is Huppert, that has to be the least Isabelle Huppert-looking photo of Isabelle Huppert that I've seen. :lol: I would have guessed it was the lead singer of an early to mid-'80s New Wave girl group. I do like the look, though.

Well, it's a bald guy in black clothing literally screaming out his lungs in what seems not to be out of joy ..

:D Hasn't your earlier picture been of the singer of Meshuggah? Because that would be one of my favorite bands actually. Maybe I'm mixing it up.

Metal singers screaming are not angry. Or do you think the singer of Meshuggah is angry all the time. Devin is actually always in a very happy mood when he's on stage:
