In an interview with Female First, the actress acknowledged that her short height sometimes limits her clothing choices. She explained that she isn’t drawn to particular designers but specific dresses and fabrics.

I love the art of fashion but I’m five foot four, so it’s not designed to be perfect on my body. My fashion is more practical because, alas, I’m not five foot ten and aged 16. It’s one of the comments I get: ‘Oh gosh, you’re so small!’ Ben Affleck said that.
