Headshot Facial Expressions

Apparently many celebrities, like Barack Obama, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, are often photographed with one facial expression (links play music, so mute your speakers first if you are somewhere you want silence).

Could be coincidence, or perhaps they've found a look that works for them and they work to always present that for photographs. Actors similarly may have a look that works and is worth repeating, for both the photographers we hire and those we don't.
