A few years back, a friend and I debated the positives and negatives of resembling a celebrity. The positives outweighed the negatives.
During the conversation, he and I discuss the positives and negatives from the celebrity point of view. Off the top of my head, I’ll assume the negatives outweigh the positives if there any positives at all.
A person closely resembling a celebrity could inflict intense damage on the reputation of the famous person, especially if they tried to use their looks to get free stuff, get access to places and people, or generally act like a jerk while impersonating the celebrity.
I’m not sure if Jason Sanderlin, 21, ever tried to use his resemblance to Harry Styles to his advantage. Still, the Pennsylvania man is now getting headlines across the world for looking incredibly similar to the former One Direction member.
Unfortunately, much of the attention is coming thanks to a mugshot because Sanderlin was arrested for doing some awful stuff.
Sanderlin is accused of hitting a woman over the head with an automatic rifle and grabbing her breasts during a robbery at an apartment complex.
Sanderlin is accused of ordering three people to get on the ground after kicking down the door of an apartment on Jan. 21 and attacking the woman as she tried to resist being zip-tied, WTAJ said. He allegedly took $400 in cash and a stash of marijuana.
He was allegedly turned in by his longtime girlfriend who IDed him from surveillance footage — and is also charged with helping her carry out an earlier robbery, the outlet said.
Sanderlin’s mugshot is circulating online, along with a picture of Harry Styles. You be the judge.

Now, the first major difference between the pair is the massive 33 tattooed on Sanderlin’s head. The other difference between Mr. Watermelon Sugar and the accused criminal is that Styles stands 6’1″ tall, and Mr. 33 is only 5’4″ in height.
One more thing that’s different between Styles and Sanderlin – the accused is being held on $200,000 cash bail as well as $50,000 for a robbery with his girlfriend. Styles could easily cover that bill.
