The girl with the million dollar legs?!

I just found out that my legs have the same measurements as Betty Grable's!!!
Thigh 18.5", calf 12", and ankle 7.5"
(Don't know about the actual lenght though.. I measure 5'5" a tiny bit more than Betty's 5'4"....)
How weird is that? (-both the fact that they're the same and the fact that I actually measured...) Sad to say that I haven't had the same success with my legs as Betty did and was in fact called Bambi when I was younger because of my skinny legs...
Okay, I realize I might seem a bit obsessed with Betty but it's all in fun I assure you. I know I don't look like her nor do I strive to do so. I'm simply inspired and enchanted by her, I wouldn't dream of actually comparing myself to her....

Nevertheless, here they are: Betty's famous gams, pins, drumsticks, pillars, stems, uprights, get away sticks... You name 'em she had 'em....

"There are two reasons why I am successful in show business and I am standing on both of them."

(Oh, and in case you hadn't noticed I borrowed most of the photos from Life....)
