With their ability to project their emotions while acting, singing, or dancing, celebrity entertainers quite often seem like giants while they’re performing. It’s easy to forget that they’re human, too. And while they may appear larger-than-life onstage or up on the big screen, these eight celebrities are shorter than you think.
Jada Pinkett Smith
The longtime beau of fellow celebrity Will Smith (a whopping 6’2″), the five-foot-tall Jada has had a long, successful career in Hollywood starring in films like The Nutty Professor, Ali, and The Matrix Reloaded. She even finds time to be the lead vocalist for Wicked Wisdom, a heavy metal band she formed in 2002.
Since making his debut on the BBC television film David Copperfield, the Harry Potter actor has grown up on the big screens. Radcliffe’s modest height (5’5″) has never stopped him from landing roles on film or on stage, where he starred in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
While her other physical assets gain more attention, Kardashian’s short stature is often overlooked. The reality star’s 5’3″ frame isn’t the gold standard for fashion runway models, but her style is constantly imitated and definitely influential.
At only 5’4″ Hart is dwarfed by his pro athlete buddies, but when he’s onstage he’s bigger than them all. The standup comedian has made a successful transition to Hollywood filmmaking, starring in the hits Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Ride Along, and Think Like A Man.
