    Yeah the unique look thing is definitely there, but those aren't the ones that usually get publicity, the high end models that get publicity are usually knock outs (Christy Brinkley, Paulina Porizkova, Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio, etc.). I don't want to drive the topic away from the height thing though.

    I love how Vin is trying to casually flex his arm facing the camera. I have a friend who tries to do this in all his pictures on FB.

    Beetlejuice routinely claims to be 6 ft. tall and weigh 300 lbs. I'm not buying it.

    I wonder why people are so insecure aboiut their height? no one cares, it's not like people talk about it and research it and post pictures and compare them on forums and call them manlets. I mean we definitely don't care right, so why do actors care? Makes no sense right guys?

    I would feel self conscious and creepy dating a girl that small. And I'm just a 5'11 manlet. For a guy of wlad's size to marry this makes me assume he has some pedo inclination.

    IDK what you boys are talking about, I'm a legit 5'9 in the morning, 5'8.5 in the afternoon, and 5'8.25 at night due to spinal compression. I feel like I tower over errybody

    Women definitely care. And that's why we care. Can't even begin to count the number of times my lady friends refused to date a guy because he was short.

    because most people go outside with shoes on, they don't walk around barefoot.

    its better for people to say with shoes because they are being honest a person frauding wont tell you with shoes they will just include that as their real height so if they are 5 foot 6 barefoot and with shoes they are 5 foot 7 and half they might tell people im 5 foot 8, because you cant really tell unless you measure someone who is 5 foot 7 or 5 foot 8 its a small difference in height.

    Height means jack shit to penis size, Howard Stern is 6 foot 5 and said his penis is only 6 inches full erected on his show, there are dwarfs with bigger dicks than most average size dudes, also there are two popular porn actors who are barely 19 they were interviewed on this hip hop station in cali and the guy is only 5 foot 5 looks like a 13 year old and weighs 110 pounds soaking wet yet he said his penis is 8 and half inches long and he is banging some of the hottest milfs in the game.

    The truth is you can never tell who is packing or not.

    Women do the opposite they always say they are shorter than they are for some reason. and they also like to shave a few pounds of their actual weight

    men will add height and weight to their stats

    Just like with sexual partners women dont like to admit their actual number and pretend they are almost virginal where Men are padding their stats with more partners than usual.

    I've seen a few women exaggerate their height. Most women probably stop exaggerating after 5'9 though. Other than that, yeah

    The issue really is that you get some kind of scientific study that shows theres a link between something like height and digit ratio and the media coverage will tend to overplay it greatly for attention. Really what your looking at for such studies tends to be a quite weak link that's only notable when you look at a very large set of data not a guide for individual people. I can say that from personal experience being bang on the UK average height wise at 5'10 but somewhat above it in other respects.

    Lol big guy with small dick detected

    This is like saying height means jack shit to size of all organs. Of course they're bigger on average. And lol at your examples being a porn star and a rail-thin Jewish guy.
