Last time we checked the sources that track such things, the average height of American and European men was about 5 feet 10 inches. That varies depending on genetics, of course, but what’s really mind-boggling is how much taller some male celebrities on the shorter side seem to look to us.
So we decided to check on the stature of some famous dudes known for their larger-than-life personas on stage or screen to see exactly how much we’ve been duped. A few are famously short, but just how wee they are may surprise you.
Some of the hugest celebrities in “la la land” have a huge following. They’ve made massive blockbuster movies, and some of them even have egos to match.
But when it comes to physical height they are surprisingly short. “I thought he would be taller in the flesh” is often the first words muttered by anyone meeting some of these megastars for the first time.
According to statistics, the average European or American male is 5’10” tall, but not everybody is average.
