    Re: Resemble and look

    "He looks exactly the same as me when I was 15 years old?"

    That one sounds perfectly natural except for the omission of "the". But in writing, "fifteen" is better than "15".

    "He resembles 15 years old me."

    Not natural. You could say "He resembles me at fifteen" or "He resembles me when I was fifteen."
