The Young and the Restless star Courtney Hope is perhaps nothing like her on-screen alter ego Sally Spectra, or at least that’s what her fans seem to believe. However, it seems like Courtney does have quite a few things in common with the fashion designer. Here’s what you need to know.
The Young and the Restless Star Courtney Hope Opens Up On What She Really Thinks About Sally Spectra
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Courtney admitted that there are some redeeming qualities that she does share with her character. When asked who is better at handling conflict, Courtney responded with, “I would say I am because Sally can be a bit more aggressive and impulsive and I’m not really that way. I definitely can be feisty when I need to be, but in general, I like to talk about things in a mature fashion and not let them fester.”
Now, as far as who is better at making decisions, Courtney explained, “I think it depends on what the situation is. We’re very similar in the sense of if there’s something that we want, we decide it’s happening. But I feel like I personally have a tendency to be a little more flexible, like, ‘You choose the restaurant.’ Sally is a little more decisive, like, ‘I want sushi tonight!’”

And while we’ve seen Sally do some rather shady things over the years, Courtney doesn’t think that she’s all that bad. But she does admit that the beautiful redhead does lack compassion. She said, “That’s tricky but I would say I am because if being compassionate is a threat to Sally, she can be a little more self-serving with it. I’m very sensitive to people, which brings out a natural compassion.”
Plus, Courtney thinks she is the funnier person of the two. “Sally has a very self-deprecating sense of humor, while I have more of a witty, sarcastic sense of humor that I think is more accessible for people,” she said.
