Personality Test: Caitlin Peabody
Caitlin Peabody moved to Pittsburgh four years ago to join Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's corps de ballet. She lives in Friendship, where she loves cooking at night while watching a movie.
The young dancer likes the outdoors, weather permitting, and during the summers at home in New Hampshire you're likely to find her in the pool. Getting together with friends over wine is also a favorite activity.
Peabody, 24, is also into reading. While “Gone With the Wind” is her favorite, it's big, and she also likes lighter reads, beach books to get her mind away from things.

I guess I'd have to say Rachel McAdams. I've been told that by friends, family, and even a few strangers.
