Does this remind anyone of a Seinfeld episode?
Kimbra Hickey wants some recognition for her pinky-size role in the “Twilight” phenomenon.
Hers are the slender, ghostly hands cupping a red apple on the now-famous cover of the first hit book by Stephenie Meyer.
But Hickey’s lack of fame has her cracking her knuckles in frustration.
“It was major exposure for my hands,” said the petite, 40-year-old model. “But nobody knew who I was.”
So Hickey now stops anyone she sees reading the book to inform them of her contribution.
“I see people reading it on the subway, and I say, ‘Those are my hands! I’m a hand model!’ ” she explained. “I’m sure they think I’m crazy — a crazy lady on the subway.”
But you know, she sounds a little psycho about this:
The good-natured Hickey sometimes hangs out near the cash register at the Barnes & Noble near her Greenwich Village apartment to spread the word. Surprised customers sometimes ask her for her autograph or to trace the outline of her hand on the book jacket.
She even carries around a Gala apple in her purse at times so she can recreate the pose for people.
Funny thing, but she’s actually more ‘famous’ for being a foot model.
She wears a size 6 shoe, is that a ‘normal’ size?
