    There's always that one time out of ten thousand when someone shows up with a rocket car... Are you excitable?

    Hmmm... Too many clips of Elisha Cuthbert for you? Or was it Amy Adams?

    Must not be your music type, dear Badback... :D
    Was glad there was a glimpse of Kim B... not to mention the repeat of Sandra Bullock walking decisively... ;)

    X Another perfect example of diversity in personal taste... Just like the Sports wheels vs. the UWCs... :D

    With my most sincere apologies to @MelindaV , and all other ladies on this site, for this awfully tasteless comparison to make my meager point... :oops:

    Hey, now... I didn't say she wasn't HOT! No way I'd throw her out of bed -- before I was done with her, anyway. But geez, she's shorter than both Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes -- those guys are ~*little*~... Before I realized that, I wanted to make her my Wife. In the video she looks much taller, but only because she has a skin tight miniskirt on and is wearing 8" man-killer heels. How's this -- she still has a perfect Disney nose. Better? ~*ducks*~

    Nope. Standard issue Hollywood Publicist [BORSHT]. They always add three inches to account for the pumps they are expected to be wearing at all times. (I learned this by way of Lynda Carter, who actually stands 5'-9", but her Publicist always 'listed' her as being 6'-0" instead.) Also, guys like Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes often stand on 'apple crates' when on set (blocks of built up wood pylons that are out of the camera shot, so that they can either seem taller than others, or look taller people in the eye).

    Yeah. Sigourney Weaver, Tyra Banks, Geena Davis... the aforementioned Lynda Carter... Someone I can still find easily in a stadium or see across a large crowded room or look in the eye without breaking my neck looking down all the time. I am truly sick and tired of so-called reality show 'celebrities' making that particular brand of man-killer spiked shoes with the RED bottoms so popular that every girl in America that can't find the gumption to be an active participant in a gymnasium (and haven't done so since 9th Grade PE class) decides they can be 'pretty', 'slim' and 'tall' if they buy and wear 8" pumps. Ewww... It's weird when a girl takes off her shoes, and the first thing to come to mind is, "Where did she go?" Basically, if I have a clear, unobstructed view over her head, she's too short for me.

    They added about 8 inches to my sister, making her my height. I laughed for days.

    Thank you kindly.

    If you watch closely, in the movie 'MINORITY REPORT' (2002), there is a point where the height of Tom Cruise' character is listed as 6'-0" on a display he is using. If Tom Cruise is 6'-0" tall, I must be 6'-8". FYI... I'm not 6'-8". Also, his character in the Jack Reacher movies is supposed to be 6'-5" tall. By that count, I must be around 7'-2" or so... Yes, Hollywood makes me laugh -- a lot. Especially when I notice they are using narrow, cut down door frames (and up angle camera shots) on sets of movies with Eddie Murphy, Sylvester Stallone, and Wesley Snipes to give the illusion they are taller.

    I just love how this exchange about 'exciting' actresses and their relative heights takes a life of its own... :D

    I sometimes point out to women how ridiculously tall I would be if suddenly it were in fashion for men to wear 8" heels, whether pumps or platforms. And I'm sure I would have killed myself, too. A knee injury from playing basketball in January 1999 pretty much ruined my sense of balance.

    One of my Uncles was legitimately around 6'-7", but loved wearing the platform ankle boots from the 1970s. So he was effectively a seven-footer to the naked eye. His Son, Junior, is every inch as tall as he was, maybe a little taller, the spitting image of his Dad.

    But some girls, well, I'm reminded of the jingle from old toy commercials that went 'Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down!' It astounds me they can manage to balance themselves on such treacherous looking shoes. Especially when their... uhm... 'center of gravity' is raised by so much.



    God. I'm old.
