Orange Is the New Black Star Taryn Manning: I'm Not Related to Peyton and Eli
“I think somewhere along the way [we might be related],” Manning, 36, told E! News on the red carpet at the SAG Awards. “But no, it’s not true. We should squash that rumor right here, right now,” she said, adding that she’d be “much taller” if she was related to the Super Bowl-winning brothers.
Standing at just 5’2″ compared to Eli’s 6’4″ and Peyton’s 6’5″, she may have a point. It was often reported that Manning was a second cousin of both Peyton and Eli.
Manning was present at Hollywood’s big night as part of the SAG-nominated Orange Is the New Black ensemble cast for her role as Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett.
