Troy Goodall, a photographer from New Zealand, has given ordinary people with famous names a chance to celebrate their unusual situation. His new series titled "Almost Famous" depicts some of the world’s biggest names in the iconic poses of their famous namesakes. “They all have such incredible stories,” says Goodall. "From being hung up on while trying to make restaurant reservations, to being stalked outside their hotel rooms on holiday. Living with a famous name is hard!”

The series, made in collaboration with an iconic NZ brand, boasts an impressive cast of A-list names: Ben Affleck from Dunedin, Julia Roberts from Tauranga, Anthony Hopkins from Wellington, Michael Jordan from Kelston, Jackie Chan from Auckland, and Sarah Jessica Parker from Warkworth.

Am I the only one here who finds her attractive, despite certainly not the classical stereotype anorexic model look ?
