Trivia - Sigouney is 6 feet tall.  A lot of male co-stars have to stand on a box for close ups beside her.  

That has always been a hangup for me in visualizing her as Kitty.  My brain just automatically knows how tall SW is and struggles to cram her into Kitty's relatively dainty body.

She isn’t Kitty. Kitty just resembles Sigourney. Kitty is maybe 5’4”.

(And I don’t want to hear what OHOTMU says!)

Kitty in Elsewhen has reminded me of Sarah Jessica Parker from time to time.

As I was Googling for young pictures of SW, many related suggestions popped up including Summer Glau and Christina Ricci.  Which, when the hair is removed from the equation, were surprisingly similar.

There really aren't too many pics of SW as a teen that I could find.

It always seemed to me that Walt based his Lady Sif on Sigourney.

It's in the eyes. Sigourney is the definition of statuesque. But facially it is very interesting to make the comparison.

Guk!!

Some have pointed out that a young Jennifer Love Hewitt has a lot of Kitty in her face. I can certainly see that.

Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt we’re cast as mother and daughter in the movie “Heartbreakers”.

I think it’s more to do with the combo of personality...and hair! Kitty gets into shenanigans and responds to them in a way that makes me think of SJP.
