Edgar Rice Burroughs, Hugh Jackman, & Eugene Levy???

MyHeritage, a new (partially in beta) site, offers the use of face recognition software to help in genealogical research. If you think that's interesting, they also offer a free face recognition scan so you can see which celebrity you resemble.

Well, I tried it (you have to register and upload a picture to get the results), and the results are interesting...

I used four photos:

Photo 1:
Hugh Jackman - 66% (I should have stopped here)
Meat Loaf - 59%
George Michael - 58%
Joschka Fischer - 56%
Dustin Hoffman - 54%
Mustafa Sandal - 52%
Alizee - 52% ???
Hugh Hefner - 51%
Jacques Villenueve - 51%
Celia Cruz - 50% ???

Photo 2:
Edgar Rice Burroughs - 75%
Chaim Herzog - 70%
Omar Bradley - 70%
Alfred Schnittke - 68%
Henry Kissinger - 68%
Alain Delon - 67%
Lou Reed - 67%
Kris Kristofferson - 66%
Leos Janacek - 64%
Grace Kelly - 64% ???

Photo 3:
Eugene Levy - 57%
Luis Buneul - 56%
Jonathan Demme - 54%
P. Diddy - 47% ???
Dean Cain - 46%

Photo 4:
Males:
Viktor Yanukovych - 66%
Kevin Spacey - 53%
Russell Crowe - 52%
Toshiro Mifune - 50%
Eugene Levy - 50% ???
Robert Oppenheimer - 48%
John Logie Baird - 45%

...so Eugene Levy's name appears on two photos, but they're photos where I wore older glasses, so I'm apparently I'm a cross between Eugene Levy, Hugh Jackman, Lou Reed, Henry Kissinger, and Edgar Rice Burroughs, and others, including, inexplicably, Grace Kelly...
