According to the website CelebRiot.com, Vera Ellen’s waist was only 21 inches in circumference. She was only 95 pounds and 5 feet 4 inches tall.
Vera Ellen became anorexic and very thin when she was in her 30s, which made her age quickly. Some people think that her anorexia was caused by the sudden death of her daughter when she was a baby. As her eating disorder and depression got worse, she withdrew from Hollywood and the public eye. This helps to explain why she has such a small waist and weighs so little.
