Piper's father, George William Perabo, is of German, English, and Irish ancestry. Piper's mother, Mary Charlotte (Ulland), is of Norwegian descent. While Piper's surname is sometimes believed to be Portuguese, it originates in Germany. Piper's paternal great-grandfather, Frederick Joseph Perabo, was born in Lorch, Germany, in 1878, and moved to the United States, where he married Piper's great-grandmother, Edna B., who was also of German descent. Piper's patrilineal line can be traced back to her great-great-great-grandparents, Jacob Perabo and Caroline Diel, who were German-born.

I walked into the audition and was like, "I'm from New Jersey, I work in a bar, I play guitar - there's no reason you shouldn't give me this part." And it worked! - On auditioning for Coyote Ugly (2000).
To me, a great love story is a great love story, and it doesn't matter what gender is involved.
I think that you love who you love, and there are people who you love that people aren't going to understand why, and that sort of doesn't really matter.
Any time I'm playing opposite somebody in a love relationship, if I know them it's easier, because I know how much I can trust them.
