* Few people have made not just an entire career, but an entire industry, out of milking their heritage as much as Nia Vardalos. It's one thing to be proud of your ancestry, it's another to use it to shamelessly promote yourself and create a good number of reviled projects (example, My Life in Ruins). It's almost as if she never loses an opportunity to remind us she's of Greek ancestry. Therefore, if she's going to be excessive in her proclamation of being Greek, I fail to see why I shouldn't be excessive in proclaiming her Greek heritage either. Hence, whenever I mention her, I will emphasize how Greek she is--normally by making Greek as large as possible. Let us remind you, Jennifer Aniston is part-Greek, yet she never goes on about it the way Vardalos does.
