Tomorrow I’ll be publishing a Q&A with Arianne Cohen, author of The Tall Book: A Celebration of Life From on High. To get us all in tall girl mode, I thought I’d clue you in to some of my favorite Talls:
Blake Lively 5'10" Major girl crush. Seriously…I'm about two at-bats away from switching teams for her.
Uma Thurman 6’0” I just love how she always held her head up high when she was with her shorter ex-husband Ethan Hawke. And how she kicked ass in Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill.
Padma Lakshmi 5’9” Have you ever read the story behind the scar on her arm? Check it out here - it's a great story/learning experience and says a lot about her inner beauty.
Amy Acuff 6’2” OK, so she posed for Playboy, not my favorite career choice in the world. But when I see pics of this professional high jumper soaring through the air, it makes me want to MOVE!
Julia Roberts 5’9” She had me at, “Did I mention that my leg is 44 inches from hip to toe? So basically we're talking about 88 inches of therapy wrapped around you for the bargain price of $3000.”
Ann Coulter 6'0" Just kidding! Though, sadly, we do look a lot alike.
Cat Deeley 5’9” The So You Think You Can Dance rocks super high heels and super short skirts and looks amazing every time.
Bea Arthur 5' 9½" You know why.
