* ACupAngst: [[PetitePride Averted]]. A TV Guide interviewer once asked what she thought of a rumor that she'd had breast enhancement surgery. Gellar's response was to cackle[[note]](seriously, that's how the guy wrote it up in the article; see AnnoyingLaugh below)[[/note]], point to her breasts, and say "If I'd paid for these, don't you think I'd want them to look better?"
* ActingForTwo: In ''Ringer''.
* ActorAllusion: Many of the characters she plays [[DoesntLikeGuns don't like guns]]. Knowing that her husband's (Freddie Prinze Jr) father committed suicide with one has this make all the sense in the world.
* AnnoyingLaugh: To the point that she tries not to laugh in public when she can help it. Freddy Prinze Jr. has described her laugh as "a hyena suffering through an epileptic fit."
* [[invoked]] AwardSnub: critics were outraged when Gellar wasn't even nominated for a Emmy for her work in ''LiveActionTV/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.

* HappilyMarried: to Freddie Prinz Junior, who also plays her love interest in Scooby Doo.

to:

* HappilyMarried: to Freddie Prinz Junior, Creator/FreddiePrinzJr, who also plays her love interest in Scooby Doo.''Film/ScoobyDoo''.



* IAmNotSpock: In the past she has openly expressed distaste at how some people would call her "Buffy", but now says that she embraces it.



* PlayingAgainstType: She usually plays [[ActionGirl badass action girls]], clearly intended to fufill a FeministFantasy. In the ''Princess Rap Battle'' series, she plays Cinderella, who's depicted as a gold-digging housewife only capable of cooking and cleaning.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: In one episode of ''Buffy'' her character is transformed into a rat by a witch's curse. This was due to Sarah being exhausted by the long hours on set, leading to the writers turning Buffy into a rat so she could get some well-earned rest.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Partial example: she met Freddie Prinze Jr., her future husband, during the filming of ''Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer'', but they didn't start dating until a few years later, around the time they did the Scooby Doo movies.
* StarDerailingRole: her role in the critically panned ''Film/SouthlandTales'' is often decried as the bridge between Sarah Michelle Gellar being a teen idol who starred in Summer blockbusters to working on much smaller, independent projects that usually only get a limited release. Starring alongside the late and great Robin Williams in ''LiveActionTV/TheCrazyOnes'' offered a small resurgence in her career and won her a people's choice award, but the show itself only got lukewarm ratings and was cancelled after one season.
* TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment: Although ''Veronika Decides To Die'' (Gellar's final live-action movie to date) was filmed in 2008 and got released in several countries over 2009-2010, its (limited/VOD) US release is set for 2015.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen
** Was offered the lead in ''Clueless''
** She also turned down the chance to star alongside Leonardo Dicaprio in ''Romeo + Juliet''- Claire Danes took her place. Years later, the exact same thing happened when Gellar turned down ''Stardust'', citing wanting to spend more time with her husband. Once again, Danes filled in for her.
** Rumor has it that she also declined the part of Abigail Williams in ''The Crucible'', a role that would later go to Winona Ryder.
