Did we miss anyone?


  1. I can assure you that she is not 117lbs in weight. At only 5’4 and a dress size of 0, I come in at 117lbs. Why do they always take off about 20lbs of weigh on all these actresses? Its unrealistic …and this is coming from someone that already IS ‘petit’ or ‘thin’ or whatever you want to call it!

  2. She has a new boyfriend now. His name is Zalman Band.
    And are you really sure about her weight? I’ve seen her photos lately (that’s why I’m here) and she looks way skinnier than 58 kilos, it may be her height though.
    You can look for pictures of her if you want to make an update (Pink dress/black sash NY, Oct 2014 — July 2, 2015, Ramirez Tran Salon in LA).
