Did we miss anyone?



  1. Now here is what I find VERY interesting……Lena Dunham and Kim Kardashian are about the same height (KK is only a 1/2″ shorter than Dunham), they weigh the same (according to this website) and Lena gets called “fat” yet she wears a smaller clothing size than KK (also according to this website) and their body types look nothing alike. So why is Dunham categorized as chubby/fat, while KK is categorized as curvy and “hot?” There is something definitely wrong here and someone is lying about SOMETHING!

    • You are right that something is fishy. Lena definitely weights more than 139 lbs if she really is 5’3. That would put her BMI at 23.2 and well within the normal range which is quite off. She looks overweight. Granted she doesn’t have the most attractive body type (Not an hourglass like Kim K). She has no boobs or butt like Kim K.

  2. She’s the same height as me, and supposedly only a couple kgs heavier, and I’m like what? I feel like I’m significantly thinner than her. I hate this, this is not why I came to this website lol
