Blake Lively feels like a “tranny” because she’s tall?

Ugh, the girls at Amazona Style blog reminded me to post about a quote I saw from Blake Lively, the 5′10″ star of CW’s Gossip Girl. For those who don’t know the show, she’s thin, knock-out gorgeous, and is often displayed (on the show) in wardrobes that display her, erm, boobs quite prominently.


On talking about her “larger” frame, she said in a recent interview:

“I feel like a tranny a lot of the time. I don’t know, I’m … large? They put me in six-inch heels, and I tower over every man. I’ve got this long hair and lots of clothes and makeup on. I just feel really big a lot of the time, and I’m surrounded by a lot of tiny people. I feel like a man sometimes.”

Now, I actually can sympathize with her feelings, particularly as someone both 6 inches taller and two cup sizes smaller. Buuuut, as a celebrity and role model, you’d think she’d be a little smarter about not reinforcing these ideas. I mean, if she’s saying this, how does she expect her non-airbrushed fans to feel?

Plus, what an annoying whiner!

Tall Girl with Shorter Boy: Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams

photo of Mandy Moore and Ryan AdamsAwww! Mandy Moore has been dating shorter musician Ryan Adams for a few months apparently. I imagine Adams won’t be itching for paparazzi photo-ops, but I think they’re a pretty adorable match.

note: I found the photo and news on the fabulous Plain Jayne fashion blog.

Tall Girls with Shorter Boys: Carlo Bruni

Carlo Bruni’s shoesFirst lady of France Carlo Bruni is seen here, second to the left, rocking some flats on her recent trip with husband and President Nicolas Sarkozy to England. It seems former model and forever hottie Bruni has been spotted in flats quite a bit lately.

One potential reason? To downplay her 4 inch advantage over her husband. The 5ft 11in tall Bruni is quite a bit taller than the 5ft 7in tall Sarkozy, who has been seen constantly in stacked shoes. You can read more in The Telegraph.

I think they look pretty adorable together.
