Hollywood's Biggest Stars Are Actually Quite Short
When it comes down to it, talent doesn't discriminate against anyone's vertical nature. And sometimes, a shorter stature helps a star be memorable either in a certain role on screen, or just as a pint-sized paparazzi magnet.


Mila Kunis
Mila may be one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but did you know the star is only 5' 4"?
Of her own height Kunis says: "My friends call me hobbit. I come across shorter than I am. People will say, 'You're not five foot four.' And I'll say, 'People, I know my height.' I'm constantly winning bets - hundreds of dollars."
Here she attends the UK film premiere of 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' in London, England.



Reese Witherspoon
Height: 5'1"
Reese is best known for her role as Elle Woods in the "Legally Blonde" series, but packs a punch in other movies like "Sweet Home Alabama," "Walk the Line," and "Cruel Intentions."




Dolly Parton
Height: 5'0"
Good golly, miss Dolly! How can a woman so small have such a big voice? The Tennessee native is famous for her country music, amusement park, and cosmetic surgery enhancements.



Dustin Hoffman
Height: 5'5"
This two-time Oscar winner stands out for his roles in "Tootsie" where he cross-dressed, "Rain Man," "The Graduate" and "Kramer vs. Kramer."
Hoffman recently made his directorial debut with "Quartet."



Tom Cruise
Height: 5'7"
The action star and Scientology follower famous for 'Top Gun,' 'Jerry McGuire' and his fluctuating love life in the limelight is not as tall as his long list of acting creds. With more films coming out in 2013, that won't stop anytime soon.



Ellen Page
Height: 5'1"
We loved Ellen Page as the pint-size pregnant teenager in "Juno." There's no match for her wit, dry delivery, and sense of style in anyone who clocks in at 5'1", we're sure.



Elton John
Height: 5'3"
Sir Elton John is usually rocking out at a piano bench in his signature, eye-grabbing suits, which is why many people don't realize that the Rocket Man is short.



Fred Durst
Height: 5'5"
The Limp Bizkit rocker might be hardcore onstage (and offstage, heck, we don't know the guy!), but his height isn't huge. Doesn't matter as long as he can entertain, right?




Hayden Panettiere
Height: 5'2"
The 'Nashville' star is famous for her roles in 'Racing Stripes,' 'Remember the Titan,' and TV's 'Heroes.' The best part? Her boyfriend, Ukranian pro boxer Wladimir Klitschko stands in at 6'6"!




Kim Kardashian
Height: 5'2"
This mega star is mega short. With sister Khloe at 5'10', it's safe to say Kim got the short gene. That hasn't seemed to stop her from taking over reality TV as we know it, and the tabloids, too!



Prince
Height: 5'2"
Prince, or whatever he's going by these days, is no stranger to being different. So when it comes to his height, we shouldn't be surprised that he stands out. The artist recently announced he'll headline the Montreux Jazz Festival in July.



Danny DeVito
Height: 5'0"
Danny DeVito is known for his shorter stature, but that's all the more reason to love him. We can't get enough of him as Frank in "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" on FX.



Al Pacino
Height: 5'7"
Okay, so 5'7" may not seem all that short, but considering the type of guy Al Pacino is, we were definitely surprised! A man famous for playing Tony Montana in 'Scarface' should at least clock in at 6'0", right?



Amy Poehler
Height: 5'2"
What this funny woman lacks in height, she makes up for in laughs. Amy has us cracking up every week as Leslie Knope in NBC's 'Parks and Rec' and we miss her on SNL.
