Celebs who are shorter than you think

Big names, small stature

15 Celebrities Who Are Shorter Than You'd Expect
No, Tom Cruise is not on this list. Reportedly around 5' 7" or 5' 8", the height of Hollywood's biggest star is pretty well known.

But, did you know Robert Downey Jr. is around the same size? Luckily, his Iron Man suit came in small to medium.

Shorter, at 5' 6", Daniel Radcliffe luckily had sorcery on his side as Harry Potter. When people joke about his height, he says: "No, I'm actually slightly farther away than you think."

Another inch down is singer Bruno Mars, who has admitted to wearing large hats to make him appear taller.

He's an inch taller than Kevin Hart, though. The diminutive American comedian said he made jokes about it in school to avoid being bullied which helped him develop the sense of humour that has made him famous.

"I don't believe in doing things to manufacture my body to appeal to what I think people might like," he says. In other words, he avoids the cuban heel.

Getting smaller

Salma Hayek is another small star of the big screen, who at 5' 2" is the same height as Anna Kendrick, who says being small is an advantage because people miss her when she flies coach.

At the same height, Prince and Lindsay Lohan would look down on 5 feet tall pop princess Kylie Minogue, who would stand shoulder to shoulder with TV star Hayden Panettiere, who is often seen in the shadow of her 6' 6" world champion boxer husband Wladimir Klitschko.

The shortest of them all is singer Shakira, who is said to be just 4' 11". Though some reports put her at 5' 2". Those three inches make all the difference, especially when you're married to 6' 4" Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué.
