Rauch discussed her time in the She stated. Because I’m about five feet tall, my legs rose every time I leaned back. So they had to; it was as if I was always propped up with pillows. And if I weren’t, I’d need a hoist to get up. If you look closely, you can see that I’m frequently propped up by a large number of pillows (via Cinema Blend).
