Hi, Ilko,

I wasn't anything like that .

This idiom seems to be equivalent to "be nothing like" (which is much more usual) and can be used to refer to people:


nothing like British English not at all
But she's nothing like her character in real-life.

From Collins Dictionary:

nothing like

(in American English) not at all like; completely different from
Luckily, these guys were nothing like the self-important rugs at university.

I don't know why each dictionary refers to the same expression as being BrE or AmE.
