Kristin Chenoweth is 4'11" tall. On March 30, the Broadway and TV star tweeted, "How can one weigh 88 lbs and still have a muffin top? #itscalledcokacola."
The weight and muffin top comments both got attention, and Kristin talked more about it to Us Weekly.
"I get given a lot of grief because I’m petite and I go, 'Oh my gosh. I have a belly.' And people go, 'Are you high? Are you crazy? Do you have a problem?'" Kristin said. "I don’t have a problem. I’m a woman. I’m a woman. If I wear too tight jeans, I have a muffin top. If I eat dessert, I feel it. It doesn’t matter your size. It’s just how it is."
She added that we always want what we don't have. She wouldn't mind looking like Halle Berry, or tall and slim like "clothes hanger" Nicole Kidman. That’s true, but it’s also kind of irritating when someone tiny — seriously, 88 pounds? — starts pointing out parts of their body they consider to be too big. Kristin probably wouldn’t appreciate it if she heard Nicole complaining about how tall she is in her heels.
