It might as well have been Celine Dion walking into the Coffee Tree at Bloor and Jane Streets Tuesday afternoon.
The resemblance is striking.
Both the French Canadian pop phenomenon and actor, singer Laura Landauer are willowy in stature; they’ve both got light brown hair highlighted blonde and a bright-eyed smile. Even their mannerisms are similar.
Perhaps people are quick to make the connection, mused Landauer, because she’s been impersonating Dion for the past four years.
“It’s been a crazy month,” enthused Landauer as she settled into a couch with a cup of tea.
She’s been busy promoting her appearance in The Love Guru, Mike Myers’s latest film in theatres June 20. It’s the story of Pitka, an American who was left at the gates of ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. He moves to Canada to seek fame and fortune in the self-help business. His first challenge is to settle a rift between a Toronto Maple Leafs star hockey player, Darren Roanoke, and his estranged wife, Prudence, who’s left him for a rival skater named Jacques Grande, played by Justin Timberlake.
Landauer plays Dion in a concert scene during which Timberlake’s character, a huge fan, rushes the stage and dances to her singing ‘I Drove All Night.’
“Celine,” he exclaims, “It is my day of lucky, hahaha.”
“I’m not a star struck person,” Landauer revealed. “Mike Myers was so nice, very personable. I only encountered good things.”
Landauer assumes Myers discovered her as Dion on one of her many YouTube videos. The concert scene was filmed at the Guvernment last October over two days. Although she brought her own costumes, Myers had everything picked out for her to wear.
“This was his baby, you could tell. He’s got his hands on everything,” Landauer said.
Landauer impressed the filmmakers so much that they invited her to New York City in January to shoot some further scenes. She has yet to see the final product.
“I don’t know what’ll be shown. I did a lot so we’ll see. I had a ball. That Justin Timberlake, he can move. He plays this Quebecois hockey player. You’d never recognize him as Justin Timberlake.”
She wasn’t nervous, her confidence bolstered by the designer dress and thousand dollar shoes she was wearing.
“They had a great stage set up with all these people. I couldn’t wait to get up there,” she said.
Landauer grew up in Montreal in the ’80s. She had dark curly hair about the same time Dion did.

Question: How was your experience performing on Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveShow tour?
Answer: That was all around Europe, and it was just fantastic to be on tour with such a pro. Everywhere we went, Justin would say the local swear words onstage. He’d learn some of the language, normally something a bit dirty, and it would make people roar with laughter. And I learned to run around in high heels, and the stage was massive.
Now we have available for you to d/l the studio version of Justin Timberlake & Madonna “4 minutes” performance at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC. Enjoy!!!
Timbaland’s brother, Sebastian, released via his myspace a snippet from a new song called “Hey lil lady”. The track features Justin Timberlake & Timbaland.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are still a perfect SET!
Though the two have kept an ultra-low profile in recent months, it doesn’t mean there’s any trouble in paradise – and they definitely proved it Friday night!
Joined by a group of friends, Justin and Jess invaded the VIP area at Miami’s SET nightclub around 12:30 a.m. Friday evening, an eyewitness tells OK!. While their pals couldn’t keep their hands off the overflowing Grey Goose and Patron in the room, the lovebirds couldn’t keep their hands off each other!
“They were showing a lot of PDA!” the eyewitness tells OK!. “It was a lot – considering how coy most celebrity couples are.”
Dressed in casually – she in a breezy ethnic blouse and short skirt; he, jeans and T-shirt – the couple of nearly a year and a half engaged in a marathon of hugging, French kissing, hand-holding, dancing, singing, and gazing into each others’ eyes, the source adds.
”You couldn’t tell them apart,” the source says. “They only had eyes for each other. They told friends they just wanted to have fun that night – no photos, no media, just a private table where they could let loose.”
And apparently that they did.
By the time J&J exited SET – hand-in-hand, of course – at 3:30 a.m., they were still as giddy as ever.
“They were telling friends they had the best time,” the source says.

Isn’t Usher trying to take his statement that he is the black version of Justin Timberlake a little bit too far?
What do you think?
