Added DiffLines:

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Pia stands five foot tall with an extremely petite build. Though she was never deliberately cast as part of a HugeGuyTinyGirl duo, any leading man she worked with automatically ''became'' this while sharing a screen with her.

She was also a singer and found much more recognition and success in that field. She is now retired from that career as well.
