This 25-year-old actress attempted to get her start as a fashion model, but she just wasn’t tall enough.

After repeated rejections by normal size folk, she set out to make her mark in the ‘little people’ industry, where she was also looked down upon because she was so much dang better looking than the real dwarfs, elves, and Danny DeVito impersonators that most of the modeling agencies in Los Angeles were working with.

She eventually got hungry enough to make a change and decided to pursue a career as an actress. This of course was not the over night success that she had hoped for – only landing roles in episodes of ‘Punk’d’, ‘Crossing Jordan’, and ‘MADtv’ before getting her big break in one of Hollywood’s most overrated productions of all time.
