Here is a quote from an interview with Christina Applegate.
What's your beauty hang-up?
"I have short legs and it drives me crazy! I've got a really long torso and short legs. I can pull it off with the right jeans, but it's taken time to figure that out. There are people, like Cameron Diaz, who have incredibly long legs and you go, "Wow, how can you ever have a problem if you just wake up with long legs?!" I'd love to wake up to them one day, but it's just not going to happen! "
I browsed a lot of images of Christina, but I do not observe her to be that disproportional. Firstly I could not find any clear candid ones of her, or ones from the rear, a long torso is best observed from the back or side, and most difficult to notice from the front. In the old photo though one can see the long back from her shoulder to the underside of her bottom. Also her ankles are not very slim further making her legs stocky. However she is an attractive woman, and I must say reading her quote is comforting to us short legged ladies.
