Karlie Kloss’s towering height was not always an asset when playing basketball in school. “I was at least six inches taller than all the other girls at one point, and I was really aggressive, and I would always reach over the girls, and I’d foul out of the game,” she told VF Daily at the U.S. Open opening-night gala on Monday. “And I cried, because I felt bad,” the supermodel said. “Like, without even trying, I would trip a girl. I was so much bigger, and longer, and taller, that I just sort of hurt girls, and fouled them, and fouled out, and I just felt so bad. And my coach was, like, ‘No, that’s great! Everybody needs to be more like Karlie, more aggressive!’”
Actress Analeigh Tipton also found that being tall was not a big plus during her years as a figure skater. At age 16, she suddenly sprouted to her current height, five foot ten. “They used to sing the George of the Jungle theme song when I got tall, because I had a lot farther to fall,” Tipton said. “So it came to the point where it was a bit of a comedic show of me skating, and just falling like a tree. You’d hear a crash, the ice would crack.” She stopped skating at that point.
Tipton has just moved to New York, where she is shooting her upcoming ABC series, Manhattan Love Story. She was at the U.S. Open with co-star Jake McDorman.
The first trailer for Two Night Stand has been released. Check it out below. Screen captures will follow soon.
Earlier this week Analeigh attended the Disney ABC TCA 2014 Summer Press Tour along with her Manhattan Love Story co-stars. She looked absolutely stunning. I really love the short blonde hair! I’d like to thank my friend Kieran for the many photo donations!
I also never uploaded photos from the upfronts from May but those have been added now as well, thanks to my friend Ann.
Hi guys! As you can see I’ve put up a beautiful new layout made by the extremely talented Nicole. It also comes with a matching gallery theme. She used one of my favourite shoots Analeigh did so I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.
That’s it for now but check back soon for many gallery updates and new site content.
