Who Would Play You In A Movie (4)

Welcome back to the movie of my life where I cast Hollywood stars as my friends and family. Today I’m featuring the lovely smart and sweet Jennifer Garner as Amythyst Romero.

I met Amythyst here in Michigan shortly after her family had moved from the Bay Area. We’d recently moved from the Bay Area too. She was kind and friendly and we immediately liked each other. (I think.) She had kids about the same age as mine. And a bonus feature was that she had served in the Air Force. We had a LOT to talk about. While I love these photos, I’m sad I couldn’t get a good match of shots where they are both smiling. Amythyst is has a brightness in her smile and eyes that are magnetic and adorable. Also, look for Amythyst to be interviewed later as part of my Interview With a Soldier series. (hint hint, Amythyst.)

If you missed the other 3 people I cast, you can click through to see my husband Josh, his little sister Kari, and his older sister Heidi.

  1. Someone once told me I look like Ally Sheedy. I was excited because I thought they meant the cute, sophisticated Ally Sheedy from St. Elmo’s Fire…when I asked…I was told “no…you look more like Ally Sheedy from Breakfast club”. Umm…yeah so I guess I look like the strung out character Ally Sheedy played in Breakfast Club. Nice!
