My husband and I just saw Along Came a Spider, which co-starred Monica Potter. Please tell me about her. Her mannerisms, voice, and eyes remind us of Julia Roberts. Are they related?

The two aren't related. Potter, 30, was raised in Cleveland, Ohio, which she still calls home. Her acting career started at age 12 when she began modeling and doing commercials. Her first television break came in 1994 on the soap opera The Young and the Restless. Potter, who has two young sons, has starred in such movies as Con Air and Patch Adams. She's currently shooting a new film, I'm With Lucy, in Miami and New York.
