By now you all know I’m a legman. Legs are my thing. I just love women’s legs. So it seemed fitting I write about this extraordinary lady!
The Russian model who officially has the longest legs in the world is set to break into Hollywood after she appeared on This Morning, where presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield used ladders to interview her.
Ekaterina Lisina, 29, whose 52.4″ legs are recognized by the Guinness World Records 2018, revealed that her newfound fame from her stint on the TV show has seen her offered an exciting film role – and admits she is being inundated by male attention.
The model, who is 6ft 9in, is already known in her hometown of Penza, Russia, for having the biggest feet for a woman – a UK size 12.
A former professional basketball player with an Olympic bronze, she has an offer for an upcoming movie called Rugby Girls, she revealed.
‘The filming will take place in England. I will have a chance to be listed in the Guinness Book as the world tallest actress too,’ she said.
‘It will be screened in two years time at the world cup in Japan.
‘It is about women’s rugby championship in 1991, mainly behind the scenes stuff.
In the US team there were two tall sports girls and I will play one of them.
‘The film is being made by famous people but I can’t name them yet.
‘They chose me because I am fluent in English. I lived in Slovakia from the age of 12, then in Hungary. I speak Slovak and Czech, too, and my English does not have an accent.’
Ekaterina also claims she has a list of growing male admirers – ‘self-assured’ men who are not frightened off by her height.
‘I don’t have problems in my private life,’ she said, stressing that men do not need to be tall to catch her eye.
‘For a long time I’ve had many admirers and now their number is growing every minute.
‘Only self-assured men are capable of approaching me.
‘Those who are not just won’t do it.’
The mother-of-one’s height runs in the family and her six-year-old son is also a giant, weighing almost 11lbs at birth.
‘Not every girl is over two metres tall but I don’t have any personal problems about it,’ she said.
‘I like my height. It is unusual – and everything unusual attracts attention.
‘I like experimenting with my looks. Not long ago I coloured my hair, and now I plan to make lots of African plaits. I can easily go out without make up.
‘Like every girl, I have my own opinion about a good-looking man. I prefer dark-haired man with brown eyes. I don’t mind the man’s height at all. I just want to meet a good man.’
Discussing her style and how she dresses her lofty frame, she explained: ‘I love mini-skirts and short dresses. (Well done!)
‘I like jackets but if I am going out I will put on a fur coat or just a long coat. I prefer white and black colours in my clothes.’
Her height does, however, have its downsides. The daughter of two basketball players revealed: ‘I have problems on planes, especially I am not given a seat next to emergency exit or in business class, I have to stretch my legs into the aisle and I make it difficult for stewardesses to serve passengers.
‘And it is hard to buy jeans, I have to order my clothes from a tailor.’
