GOSSIP GIRL star Blake Lively is self-conscious about her height - and fears men find her towering stature intimidating.
The 21-year-old actress stands five foot ten inches (1.6 metres) tall and is made to wear high heels while she films the glamorous teen drama.
And Lively admits her lofty stature has always made her feel unattractive.
She tells Allure magazine, "I feel like a tranny (transvestite) a lot of the time. I'm large, they put me in six-inch heels, and I tower over every man - I've got this long hair and lots of clothes and make-up on.
"I just feel really big a lot of the time, and I'm surrounded by a lot of tiny people. I feel like a man sometimes."
