Olivia Wilde's short struggle with jeans

Olivia Wilde's short struggle with jeans

Olivia Wilde struggles to fit into jeans because of her short legs.

The 32-year-old actress - who has paired up with H&M Conscious Exclusive 2016 collection to promote their eco-friendly range - has admitted she cannot follow current fashion trends because of the less-than-impressive length of her limbs.

Speaking to PEOPLE magazine about her wardrobe dilemma, the 5ft 7in brunette beauty said: "I can't fit into any of the pants because people in the '70s apparently just didn't have hips. I guess that's all the hormones in our food, but I don't understand it. You pick up the jeans and they're straight - there's no butt and there's no hips. They're for a straight body. I try to wear the trend [like boyfriend jeans], but it always looks terrible, because I have really short legs."

Olivia has admitted that her height has forced her to make other fashion decisions and wear high heels, although she would rather opt for a laid back sports-luxe look.

Speaking previously to Fashionista online, she said: "If I could wear sneakers more on the red carpet, I would. I have short legs, so I always wear heels."

The 'Vinyl' star has revealed she relies on vintage garments instead, and has done since the age of 12, which has seen her become a dab hand at revamping antique pieces.

She explained: "I know what to look for and know what to do when I see something that's messed up. You can buy it, take it to a seamstress and it's not that expensive fix it, clean it.

"It's much cooler to have something that has history than to just buy something new."
