More: You appeared in an especially beloved episode of “Seinfeld” playing Jerry’s girlfriend, “Man Hands.” So, um, are your  hands especially large?
KBVS: I want you to know that I have the daintiest hands, with the loveliest  thin, tapered fingers you’ll ever see! (Laughs) For years, people have asked to see my hands. Those weren’tmy hands—a guy doubled for my hands! If you watch the episode again, you’ll notice that I keep my own hands hidden on camera, under the table mostly, and then they cut away to show the guy’s hands. It’s so funny because every couple of years, I run into Jerry and I guess because I’m a chameleon, I have to tell him who I am. So I walk up to him and say, “Hi, Jerry. I’m ‘Man Hands.’” (laughs)
