One of the funniest things I've ever seen. Do you think the Chicago Tribune was trolling SJ with this photo of Gabrielle Drake, or just made a mistake?

Haha! Well she was nearly Purdey (and also Tara?) so a near-miss Avengers girl. Maybe this is the closest she has got yet!

Beside the mistake, its even funnier to read how some would just write in these requests. Now they have the "privacy" of the internet to look up God knows what....


Might very well not be the fault of the newspaper, some archive or press agency with a wrongly labelled picture seems on obvious explanation as well.
