Speaking to The Irish Independent, she said:

“I’ve stretched out about half an inch through Pilates — I was 5-foot-9, and now I am 5-foot-9-and-a-half inches. It’s a known effect from practicing it regularly. Pilates helps to elongate and lengthen muscles, improves posture, and plumps up the cushioning discs of our spine.”
