Donna Lynne Champlin Weight Loss, Height, Measurements
Donna Lynne Champlin stands at a height of 5 feet and 3½ inches (1.61 meters). Her fans had been curious about her noticeable weight loss during 2019’s episodes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Although, Donna has been truly unapologetic of her plus size body measurement, on or off-screen. And this confidence in hers had so much to do with the way her character Paula was treated in Crazy Ex.
The entire show did not own even one line that stereotyped her weight. Additionally, what she also loved was the way the shoemakers presented Paula as a sexual being. Her exact words on the matter were:
The Internet exploded with plus size women saying, ‘Where the fuck did you get that dress? It’s amazing.’ What I loved about it is it was tight. There was no apologizing me and hiding me. The boobs were up, and the dress was tight and that thing sold out online in a matter of minutes. Again they’re not apologizing for Paula being a size 14. They’re accentuating that she’s a size 14, which is unheard of.
