What the hell is with the "F"ing stocking. Is she from the 70`s or what? I hate to see A woman in hosiery.

@ega- Close - she's from the early 80s (May 14, 1983), when pantyhose were still 'standard equipment' on any woman. You *do* realize they still sell millions, possibly several *billions* of dollars per year in pantyhose & stockings, right? Spanx alone does over $250 Million/year. Many employers still *require* them as part of the dress code for female employees. And many women (and men) LIKE them. I used to, and I still don't *mind* them at all (on women, I mean!)
I asked her what size shoe she wore on her AmTam forum a few years ago and her answer was "5 1/2 in heels, 6 in regular shoes." And like DeadltPixxxie said, several pairs of her shoes worn in her films have come up for auction and they are 5.5's and 6's.

@zombiehunter- Thank you for the *real* proof. @warpedmind, as cool & nice as he was/is used to take issue with most reported sizes here, *even* when presented with solid documentation like an interview, an eBay auction or a pic in the gallery showing shoe size on the bottom. He's not around much anymore, and shame... heck of a nice guy, other than this issue! But regarding the size thing, a bit over-the-top at times with what I called his 'Virtual Brannock Device' (foot measuring tool they use at shoe stores).

Re: Size on the bottom; reminds me of my dad's old joke but didn't want it to seem directed at my friend @warpy as it's NOT! But Dad 'Black' used to say:
"He's so stupid he couldn't pour piss out of a boot with the instructions written on the heel!" (:^p)
Such A pretty woman, from the 1st time I saw her I was taken with her. Short toes pretty feet.

Oh, I'd love to get in on some of that pedi action--->
Having trouble warming up to this character a lot though; seems less than believable to me even when I suspend disbelief, and the show is just a little off since the departure of Charlie Sheen anyhow. But Amber is awesome, just maybe not the greatest casting for that role.

She has some cute little ones. I can't believe I didn't notice before! Of course, with so many choices here, I think I have even forgotten a few of my "favorites" since I've been here.
@Angus -Nope. Eight. I only wear seven specific brands of shoe...hence the consistency.
And I might...when I feel like it. Maybe you'll get a private preview soon. ;)
...if you're nice.

@Pixxxie - So it's safe to assume then that you're about a niner? ☺ We won't believe you until you make good on your... 'maybe' and post 'em as your avatar for a day or two! Heh!
Seriously, strange an 8 would 'always' fit just right due to wide variations between manufacturers and even sometimes different styles from same, unless you're buying all Loubies all the time, which you're not.
@Angus. - "You'd
be amazed how many size 10 feet I had to wedge
into size 7½ shoes with slick footies, a shoe horn
and WD-40, at the insistence of the customerette
that her feet were a 'perfect 7.' "
Really, dude? Of all the people on this site...you think *I'd* be amazed? LOLZ
With the amount of shoe shopping I do, I get it the most. I'm a eight straight across the.board. No squeezing, no cramming, no heel/toe overhang...they always fit just right. :)
Anyway, she's a confirmed 5.5/6.

@Pixxxie, thanks for that! I'm really tired of peeing up that particular rope, and gave up. IMO he often guesses about a size to the large, even when there is evidence to the contrary. However, I did see an interesting and eloquent post on the Mousepad this morning which laid out *why* this is important to some foot fanatics, and might copy & paste it here somewhere when the topic comes up. The Readers' Digest version is that it is a personal, intimate thing about the celeb, sort of like bra & panty size would be to a T&A dude, but the poster stated it so well, along with a line similar to the case I've made on this site a few times about why shoes are important to some, likening them to 'works of art.'
One caveat... as a former shoe salesman, even if 'she said so herself' it's not always true. You'd be amazed how many size 10 feet I had to wedge into size 7½ shoes with slick footies, a shoe horn and WD-40, at the insistence of the customerette that her feet were a 'perfect 7.' They'd say, "They fit, but can you stretch them?" And we would then torture the leather a couple hours with shoe stretchers and stretch spray because 'the customer is always right.'
