Height Means Nothing When It Comes To Hollywood Fame

One of the great things about Hollywood is the fact that actors and musicians never have to worry about their height. No matter how short they may be, it is really easy to manipulate their true height through effects and props. That’s the reason someone like Tom Cruise, who is only 5 foot 6 inches tall, gets action hero roles. You never realize how small he actually is. 

Besides Tom Cruise there are a bunch of Hollywood actors, comedians and musicians who are incredibly successful, but are much shorter than you could ever imagine. Here are the top 3:

Kevin Hart

Right now, Kevin Hart is the most popular comedian on the planet. His Netflix specials have millions of views and he is constantly in the spotlight. There’s no doubting the fact that the man is funny. In fact, he is hilarious.


You just need to watch him entertain for a few minutes on stage and it puts you in a really good mood. He just has a way about him! Not many know though, that Kevin is only 5 foot 3 inches tall, which is tiny according to Hollywood standards of a leading man.


Bono is the lead singer of U2. His presence onstage is massive. U2 had huge hits from the ‘80s right past the millenium. Their album The Joshua Tree put the band on the map with hits such as With or Without You and Where The Streets Have No Name reaching the top of the charts worldwide. 


When Bono is on stage he comes alive and his stunning voice captivates his audience. Little do they realize he is only 5 foot 5 inches tall.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is one of the biggest trending artists of her generation. From singing to acting, she dives in with constant creativity and fearlessness that doesn’t go unnoticed.
