Do authors REALLY do this?

I'm a fan of several authors on FB. I've noticed that most of them will post a guy and say that he is their inspiration for a character. The picture is usually of a celebrity or a model that they got off the internet. So do authors really use those particular people for their descriptions of their characters?

Well, I don't have any books published yet (or finished, for that matter), but I personally don't.

They use all kinds of things for inspiration.  I have never really gone to anyone's FB page and noticed.

I don't know but I sure hope someone uses Bieber to inspire a super villain.

Do you think it's tacky? Or just a different way of finding inspiration?

Some do, sure. Anne Rice has said she pictured Rutger Hauer as Lestat. It's not surprising really. We draw on what we know.

romance novels? I've never seen that from any of the authors I'm into.
