Everyone calls her Rory, but her real name is Lorelai, just like her mom's. Which kind of says it all. This is one mother and daughter who think alike, see life alike, and even finish each other's sentences. Which begs the question: Just how do you become your own person when you and your mom are "Gilmore Girls" close?
Some girls have all the luck. Alexis started modeling in her early teens and then segued into acting. She moved to L.A. after a year in film school at NYU and got the very first job she auditioned for Rory on "Gilmore Girls." By now, she's also starred in movies such as "Tuck Everlasting" and "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (with her BFF Amber Tamblyn). So what does she do in her off hours? She's a lot like Rory she doesn't own a computer, and she loves to read and hang out with her family.
