We wouldn't ordinarily play favorites, but Sara Ramirez (Callie Torres) is a standout among the Grey's Anatomy cast — which is why we're delighted to get to know the 38-year-old actress even better thanks to Entertainment Weekly's Pop Culture Personality Test series.
The interrogation begins with Sara revealing the celeb who influenced her style as a teen: "I really love Janet Jackson. I just wanted to look just like her. I would practice my 'Miss You Much' moves and my 'Rhythm Nation' moves in the mirror."
Sara's other teen idol, however, was a song-and-dancer of another sort: Broadway legend Patti LuPone. "If I wrote a fan letter, it was probably to Patti LuPone," she recalls. "My friend Sarah and I skipped school, her mom drove us, and we waited backstage until we saw her. And I remember giving her a note."
And what about her adolescent crush? "Oh, it was Tom Hanks. Because he's so funny and handsome. And I just fell in love with him in everything he was in — everything. Because, you know, first and foremost, he would make me laugh."
And we're sure he made her laugh in person when she shared a scene with him in You've Got Mail!
But we don't want to steal all of EW's thunder, so check out the full post and video to discover her favorite (inappropriate) childhood cartoon, her junior high jam, and the movie she saw way too young.
