Weight & Height
In an interview with U.S. Report, Baker said that she usually rejects the roles which involve talking about or performing any weight-related issues.
However, in 2014 she played the character of Lady Vanessa on the Louie C.K. tv show, Louie. She appeared on the episode 'So Did the Fat Lady,' where Vanessa goes on a date with Louie, the lead character. Mid-date, Vanessa calls herself fat, to which Louie, who is also portrayed as an overweight man, attempts to dismiss her. That throws her character off to a monologue against the gender-centric stereotypical judgment of people on fat women.
The dialogue goes, "You can talk into the microphone and say you can't get a date, you're overweight – you're adorable. If I say it, they call the suicide hotline on me. Have you ever held hands with a fat girl? Have you ever walked down the street in the light of day, holding hands with a big girl like me?" Vanessa continued to deliver for six minutes, which C.K. captured in a single shot and later also kept the moments when Vanessa was just thinking.
Baker added more on her performance, "[Vanessa] didn't set out to give this big long speech. It sort of evolved. So he [Louie C.K., as the writer/director] left in the episode these moments where she's just thinking. They're just being quiet in that moment together. It's not just this speech that comes out. And its not just this angry speech either. There's some frustration there but it's also, it's really just wanting and believing that he could understand her and wanting him to understand her."
In addition to that, Baker stands 5 feet and 5 inches tall.
