Professional Ski Racer Lindsey Vonn: “I definitely don’t fit in on the red carpet. I’m like twice the size of anyone”

FFN_f_51769482 - Professional Ski Racer Lindsey Vonn: "I definitely don’t fit in on the red carpet. I’m like twice the size of anyone"

On how even though she is an athlete, she doesn’t feel thin enough for the red carpet:

I definitely don’t fit in on the red carpet. I’m like twice the size of anyone, in both height and weight! I’m five-foot-ten, but I’m definitely quite a bit heavier than everyone else. I feel like the odd man out sometimes, but that’s even more reason to be confident, to show girls that you don’t have to be a size 2 to be beautiful. Any size is beautiful as long as you’re confident in yourself.

… says 31 year-old professional ski racer Lindsey Vonn.

    Wow she looks sexy! I don’t think she doesn’t fit in at all. But I understand it must be difficult standing next to all these elf-like actresses and singers, even more if you are taller.

  • lc

    Lol “twice” the size? Ehh, not really.

    • martasara12

      i think she definitely is. look how broad her shoulders are, along with strong thighs, big arms etc…i have the same ‘strong’ and athletic body type and most people think i’m skinny and all since i do look lean in clothes and i’m fit, but in reality i’m like a size 12 uk, which always shocks everyone; size is not only about ‘fat’, but just how your body is built, and she had a bigger built.

      • Neri

        But, to be fair, a size UK 12 is not big! 🙂

        • martasara12

          it’s not big, it’s just bigger than the average actress, like she said 🙂

  • HB

    She’s got a great booty 🙂 I don’t think she’s “twice the size” of anyone there though! Pretty and athletic.

  • liv

    She’s tall and strong… So she looks good…

  • Chris

    Wha? There’s several actresses her size or bigger,

    • HB

      I think she’s inviting the comparison. I remember a post here where she talked about how all the models were smaller than her but had cellulite, while she herself was fit and firm.

      • lc

        Oh yeah I remember that now too!! You mean you think she is fishing for compliments lol? Now that you mention that I think she is… 😉

        • HB

          Yes, I had forgotten it and for some reason Chris’s comment brought it back. I think she might be fishing!

          • lc

            Haha yep XD

      • Chris

        Usually insecure people do this, always fishing for compliments. I mean, it’s not her fault for being insecure but she’s def full of bs.

        • HB

          Yeah the thing is she could’ve just said “I have a lot of muscle and am lucky that it’s kept cellulite off.” It’s good to be confident and even brag on yourself a little, but she did it by putting the other girls down.

    • Roxy

      This is like Jennifer Lawrence and her “I’m fat” BS.

  • angry_bird

    She has a nice, muscular body!

    • AlyssaMoh

      she looks fabulous, she doesn’t look out of place at all, especially with her face, she’s very cute and very blonde

  • Neri

    She’s got an awesome body! Very strong and beautiful! Very healthy and vibrant. Something nice to aspire to! 🙂 A shame she compares herself when she’s obviously gorgoeus – even more so than many other actresses and models.

  • shuu

    Suuuuper sexy with back muscles I’d die for. I love that her one eye is smaller when she smiles, it looks like she’s being cheeky

  • Calia

    She is absolutely stunning in every way. Her quads inspire me.

  • Flora Manson

    Her quads are on ppooooiiiiint. She is absolutely beautiful. So strong and powerful and healthy! I don’t like the “odd man out” reference though, it makes me feel like she really doesn’t feel confident on the red carpet despite what her next quote said 🙁

  • Uma

    Dear VS, this is what a pro athlete looks like as opposed to a model. Nothing wrong with either of them, but please stop saying models are athletes.

    • HB

      Yes! Unless of course you’re a professional competitive Pilates-doer 😉

      • Uma

        The pilates instructor at the classes I attend is a former aerobic gymnastics world champion (you cannot make this up). While she is smaller than Lindsay Vonn (she is around 5’3 maybe), she clearly has some impressive muscle mass (she does insane body weight stuff, girl is strong!). I mean yeah, she is tiny all over, doubt she is more than 110 lbs, but she is solid muscle. And while short, still looks tall due to her athletic built. So, my point is, athletes come in so many shapes and sizes, but somehow, they still look like athletes and not models 😀

        • HB

          Wow! I was just being cheeky lol. I agree with you 100%. Even the rhythmic gymnasts look more athletic than the models that live at the gym and consume juice and drugs all the time.

  • ayu

    She looks good, even if the blue romper does her no favors – it looks like she wasn’t able to zip it up and it accentuates her tan lines. Nothing wrong with that, though 🙂
    Other professional female skiers are better looking than Vonn, just less of celebrities – Tina Maze and Anna Fenninger, for example. Probably more, I don’t watch sports on tv 🙂

    • AlyssaMoh

      Tina Maze is gorgeous! Talk about having it all – looks, brains and certified brawn

    • HB

      I think Anna and Vonn look similar!

    • a

      there is a pro olympic skier who goes to my university and she is considerably bigger than vonn in thighs and butt but still looks amazing imo.

      • ayu

        I meant I find others facially more beautiful 🙂 She does look amazing in the first picture, though (despite the horrible dress). I couldn’t care less if her legs were three times the size, they can do amazing things! Not to mention her legs aren’t even remotely “thick”, but nicely fit. We’re just brainwashed to be thin and dainty for society (men) to consume us. To me, strong quads and shoulders look way sexier on a woman than washboard abs and protruding collarbone.

  • Deborah G.

    Well she IS bigger than most celebrities. She is tall and muscular and looks great.

  • Nicole

    her bodys banging

  • nat

    Several actresses are bigger than her. Being a tall blonde in holly wood does not stand out, really. She has a nice athletic build.

  • Maddym

    Aww poor Lindsey doesn’t fit in because she is healthy, blonde, athletic, beautiful, white, and has perfect teeth, but she’s a little bit bigger than some of the other women. But you know she’s right: any size is beautiful as long as you’re confident….and beautiful, don’t forget beautiful.

  • MD

    I wouldn’t put her in the beautiful category but she does have a ton of sex appeal……..

  • nadia

    Wow, just wow!!

  • Rita

    She differently fits in the premier of Jurassic Park in the 1st pic (according to her words)
    as others mentioned, it seems like shed fishing for compliments!
