Despite society’s standards for admiring tall men, many of Hollywood’s most famous actors don’t live up to these high expectations. In fact, very different. Oftentimes, creative camera tricks and professional editing helps create the illusion that these famous faces are actually much larger than they are in real life. And most of their fans don’t even notice!
Though the average height of men these days is about 5’9”, many big industry names surprisingly fall well below that, giving promise to hopeful actors of all sizes in the future. Though you may have a hunch about a few of the actors on this list, you’ll be surprised to find out some of the biggest stars aren’t what they appear to be on screen.
