Hello everyone.
how would you say the following, please?

Ella no es como la gente piensa.
Ella no es todo lo que la gente piensa de ella.
My try:
She is not like what people think.
She is not all that people think about her.


Thank you in advance.

    Si quiero decir que la gente no la conoce muy bien.

    She's not at all like what people think.
    Ella no es para nada como lo que la gente piensa de ella.

    Not at all! ¡De ningún modo!

    Nosotros, los Americanos, tenemos otras expresiones:

    "She's not everything (that) she's cut out to be."

    Es decir, la gente la sobreestima. Supongo que solo depende de lo que quieras decir.

    To The Newt's excellent list of possible expressions I would add
    "She's not like people think she is."
    To end these expressions at "...think" sounds a little clipped; they sound more natural with "...think she is."

    With a specific adjective, "She is not as (good, bad, cruel, kind, smart, dumb,...) as people think.
