    I remember in Mean Girls, her character Gretchen was Jewish so I kinda thought she actually was. But Cajun and Italian makes sense.

    • FLASHP01NT says:

      she’s definitley part Jewish, absolutely

      you can tell from the typical diamond shaped nose via the lowered columella/raised nostril – which only Jewish people have

      it’s not as pronounced on Lacey Chabert so she’s probably a quarter Jewish on the Italian side then mixed with someone who was French/English

      • jackson9 says:

        With this nostril theory you have can you settle this debate @Follers and I were having as to whether or not Gina Rodriguez has Jewish ancestry?

          Don’t put too much stock into any opinion that states only a certain ethnic group carries a physical attribute that is not present in any other ethnicity. Features like that, exclusive features I mean, are very very rare.

          • passingtime85 says:

            I guess I should have put caveats to my statement. Bone morphology can have exclusivity, but in terms of flesh or cartilage, I’m not sure that there’s exclusive traits.
