The Beyoncé wax figure — which was unveiled at Madame Tussauds Blackpool on Wednesday — immediately drew comparison to the 'King of Queens' star on social media
On Wednesday, a wax figure of the singer was unveiled at Madame Tussauds Blackpool in Blackpool, England and immediately drew comparison to the The King of Queens star, 53, on social media.
Remini reacted to the viral comparison, writing on X (formerly known as Twitter), “I am screaming! And loving all the tweets!”
“This perimenopausal woman will take any and all comparisons to the beautiful Beyoncé!” she added.
In the comment section of Remini’s post, people praised both her and Beyoncé.
Before Remini weighed in, fans were quick to notice the resemblance online. One X user wrote, “Queen of Queens or Queen B?? Someone tell that Beyoncé’s waxwork doesn’t look like Leah Remini?”
“all i see is Leah Remini,” another user posted.
The series, which premiered on Sept 21, 1998, ran for nine seasons until May 2007. It followed middle-class married couple Doug (James) and Carrie Heffernan (Remini) as they lived in Queens, New York with the latter's father, Arthur Spooner (portrayed by the late Jerry Stiller).
Remini posted a heartfelt Instagram tribute to the "truly special show," raving about her costars and the series' fans. She also shared a fun clip from one of the show's episode, in which Carrie buys Doug a shirt from the "Big and Tall Store."
"By the time I signed on as Carrie Heffernan, I had been to hundreds of auditions, was cast in many pilots and some short-lived series, and was finally offered The King Of Queens," she began her caption. "As soon as production started on season one, I knew I was home, and I am blessed to say I was part of a truly special show that went on for nine seasons and 207 episodes and still lives on successfully in syndication."
"They all made me laugh every day," she wrote. "Our gifted guest and recurring cast made the show what it is. Working with the cast, crew, and our awesome and dedicated writers and producers was a dream come true for an actress."
James, 58, also shared a photo of the three stars on Instagram and expressed his gratitude for the show and his costars.
"25 years ago today, we aired," he wrote in the caption. "I am so incredibly blessed to have taken this ride with the insanely talented @leahremini and Jerry Stiller. I love you both so much. and thank you to the GREATEST FANS in the world 🌎 LOVE YOU! 🙏❤️"
