What actress or other well known person looks the most like Edna Purviance to you?

From an email: Diane Keaton (but mainly her smile)

Seeing as Virginia Cherrill was apparently chosen for her similairity to Edna, I'd say her, but I didn't think so until more recently. Hmm... no one else has that smile or those eyes!

I have to agree, especially now trying to see someone that might look like Edna.

A fan passed on a mention of Gillian Anderson, but I don't see it.

I did notice a few times during my research during Edna's day a few images that reminded me of Edna.

Don't know if people were picking up on Edna's looks at that time because she was popular for their own use or just the way it was...
