Related Tropes

  • Blue Eyes
  • Cleopatra Nose
  • Dawson Casting: Inverted; due to her height, when she was younger, she was able to play older characters, like on News Radio when she was 14, playing a girl taking her SATs(and not taking them seriously, indicating she wasn't just some young prodigy).
  • Famous Ancestor: She claims to be a descendent of King John III Sobieski of Poland.
  • Identical Stranger: Known for bearing a striking resemblance to Helen Hunt, in both looks and voice.
  • One-Woman Song: "Why Leelee Won't Love Me" by Primitive Whore.
  • Overly Long Name: Her full name is Liliane Rudabet Gloria Elsveta Sobieski.
  • Star-Derailing Role: Fresh off momentum from Never Been Kissed and Eyes Wide Shut as the next It Girl, The Glass House was her first headlining role. A critical (holding 20% at Rotten Tomatoes) and, worse, commercial failure ($18m domestic TOTAL, though opening the week after 9/11 did not help) ended that route real quick, and she's been practically invisible since.
