A-list Actors who wear lifts ( elevator shoes)!

Not every Hollywood actor is tall, and some aren't too happy about it. A few take their height deficits into their own hands and wear elevated footwear to make up the difference. Here are 5 A-list celebrities who seem to be wearing lifts.

Guys that wear elevator shoes are under 5’9”. No one that is 5’10” would bother putting on elevator shoes.

by Anonymousreply 1604/09/2019

If I could have Newman, I wouldn't have cared if he's only 5'6" as r15 suggests.

At first I thought that 5'6" was ridiculous, then noticed this. I have decided, however, to attribute it to shrinking from old age, as he would have been about 62 years old.

If Cruise is wearing 1-2" lifts and Newman shrunk 1-2", I'm going to believe that Newman was probably 5'8" or 5'9" when he was younger.

Yes, I'm trying very, very hard.

It looks like Eva Marie Saint is wearing ballet flats so she's virtually barefoot.

That photo is from a 1950s TV special of a new musical version of OUR TOWN in which Paul played George, Eva Marie played Emily and Frank Sinatra played The Stage Manager. Frank sang "Love and Marriage" in this and it was a huge Billboard hit for him.

Gene Kelly sometimes wore Cuban heels in his films, though, more often, he insisted on dancing with leading ladies who were shorter than he was (5'8").

And the heels are very obvious in some of the production shots of his pre-Hollywood Broadway hit Pal Joey. I'll try and find some links to post later.

Not A list of course but Jonathan Rhys Meyers has been saying for years he's 5'10...yeah, more like 5'8 or shorter. He's always in heeled shoes and/or on his tippy toes in photos. It's kinda funny. He admitted he was in Frankenstein boots in scenes with a very tall Randy Quaid for the Elvis tv bio-pic. Same for the Tudors.

Here's Gene dancing with Rita Hayworth to "Put Me to the Test" from Cover Girl. Glorious number! That technicolor.

He's clearly wearing heels, I'm guessing they're 1 & 1/2" high. There may be a lift inside the shoe, too, but doubtful....I don't think he could dance as successfully with that much happening on his feet. Dancers like to "feel" the floor.

It looks like Rita's heels are about 3" high and she's just barely shorter than him..

But also note all the other chorus girls in high heels, some of whom are certainly as tall as Gene. This was at the beginning of his film career when MGM was loaning him out to Columbia. So maybe he didn't ave much say about who partnered him. Or maybe he was a real pro and simply wanted the best dancers opposite him.

by Anonymousreply 4204/09/2019

Tom did appear to wear normal shoes quite a bit during that time around 2007-2008, but wearing noticeably less than an inch is surprising, similar to Sly wearing Converse recently. I think most here would have been surprised if Tom was the same height as Stiller, but the press treats him like he's shorter! For a while, he seemed to give up the thicker boots he wore while married to Nicole, but whether it was the press noting the height difference with Katie or Tom focusing primarily on action films, it'd be difficult to imagine him in shoes like that now.

Riz Ahmed's very obvious bald spot in 2012. He was around 30 here. This photo was taken on the set of a Mira Nair film he starred in with Kate Hudson.

It appears he has an odd spotty type of hair loss throughout the crown area, especially as the rest of his hair looks very thick. Weird.

Whoever has been styling his hair over the past few years has done an amazing job of covering the spotty areas. They seem to be a master of Toppik! Or he's been wearing a topper type hairpiece.

Height inflation is real. The apps are full of guys who claim to be 6'1"/1.85m and taller. They don't realize many of us aren't into super tall guys. You would think everybody is over 6 ft tall. Isn't there some str8 dating app that was going to do height verification?

I suspect that shorter guys are better proportioned, including facial features, which is why we see many of them in the movies. Things start getting all gangly and misshapen when one gets too tall.

The average adult male height in the English-speaking world is about 5'9"/1.75m.

Explain this dyed blond hair for his role as a deaf rock drummer. Seems doubtful he'd be going around with a blond hairpiece with dark roots. He's sure not as wealthy as Travolta, who has been wearing full hairpieces for years. This actually looks like his real hair. if it's not and it is a frontal/topper toupee, that is some truly amazing hairpiece.

From the looks of his hair loss, it actually looks to be concentrated on the back and top crown areas. A lot people, men and women, do have that type of diffused hair loss. It's called diffuse alopecia areata. This type of hair loss is usually connected with thyroid problems, both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.

Click on the blond hair photo of Riz, then click on the zoom option. That doesn't appear to be a toupee. In HD photos, you'd see the horrible front hairline on most toupees, same for womens full lace wigs. I remember a photo of Beyonce, her lace wig was glued too tight in the front, while she was in mid-scream on stage, the glue from the front of the wig pulled on her forehead making it appear as if she had some weird wrinkles.

Riz is short, but he is amazingly handsome in person. Saw him a few times in NYC. I attended his New Yorker Festival talk, he has an ethereal presence and is incredibly intelligent. He also has an extremely charming personality which draws both men and women to him. He has a great rep in the business, he's totally professional. Yet his personal life is a shambles and quite strange.

Many think he's closeted, yet, every few years he's living with some airhead unemployed woman. He's currently living in London with an unemployed biracial woman from Massachusetts. He met her while living in Bklyn during 2018. Through her mother, she worked on Cynthia Nixon's campaign. She's 10 years younger than Riz and dumb as a box of rocks.

I always wonder how intelligent people can live with stupid people. WTF do they talk about?! No one has sex 24/7, you must talk sometimes. You have to bond on other levels other than sexually. If you read Riz's Twitter, he cares about some extremely deep subjects and political issues, most of which his stupid empty GF surely cannot comprehend. Since she's unemployed how can she even remain in the UK?

A really bad topper piece on Riz in "Jason Bourne". This wig was so obvious. In the scenes outside, the color didn't even match his black hair! Not sure if the wig was used due to his hair loss or because his shaved head was still growing out from his "The Night Of" role.

Jolie's photo with Gillian Anderson is very telling but her fantards can't stop lying like Jolie herself.

R147 Weisz is a lezzie.

[quote]Jude Law is a lift wearer and a desperate closet case.

And ugly as fuck offscreen.

R149 I know everybody says that but why?

Who rode Craig's big cock in the garden at an Oscar afterparty? Anderson Cooper? I forget.

R146, there is no way that Robert Redford is 5'5". Jane Fonda in her heyday was 5'8" and he towered over her in their movies and on the red carpet. Likewise, Cate Blancett is 5'9" and he is taller than her as well. Barbra Streisand is 5'5" and he towers over her in every photo, and presumably she and the other women are wearing heels, so there is no way that he is 5'5".

Redford is about 5'7". I saw him in an airport once. He's very slightly built too.

Sean Penn seems short.

"there is no way that Robert Redford is 5'5". Jane Fonda in her heyday was 5'8""

Actresses as well as actors claim to be taller than they really are, it's fashionable for women to be tall so girls who are 5'4" and so skinny that they photograph tall all claim to be 5'7". So if Fonda is 5'4" and Redford is 5'6" and he wears lifts, he could be taller than her even if she's wearing heels. Moderate heels.

So here, a link to, knock yourselves out. Real people who've met celebrities estimate their heights.

Hard to tell how tall Jane Fonda is, here she is with her son Troy Garity (6' 2") and her brother Peter who claims to be 6' 2". Henry Fonda was also 6' 2".

Personally, I never thought Jane was a short woman, she's always looked tall to me. She's listed as 5'8", then add heels.

Jane in a publicity photo with Anthony Perkins, she looks tall here. Anthony Perkins was 6'1".

That link is great, R157. I bookmarked it. We forget people shrink as they age. Redford is listed as 5'9, at his tallest 5'10. But he's In his 80's now. Google tells me we lose 1/4 to 1/3 of an inch each decade after 40 years. So, if you lie and add an inch in your 20's, when you're 80 you do look super short.

I have over thought this.

I have seen Fonda's height given as 5'7" so I'll go with that.

Blanchett does not look 5'9"

R154. Yes. I think you're right. After I posted about Robt Redford being 5'5, I think he's really more like 5"3" or 5'4'. He's in an old episode of Perry Mason where they have him equal height to Raymond Burr. I think Redford must have been standing on an apple crate.

Bruce Springsteen is another shorty.

R156 Penn is not that short. I've worked with him. And regardless of what has been written about him, he's a stand- up guy. He protects people who work for him.I don't believe the crap about him tying madonna to a chair. She's a bitch. Met her. I know someone who was close to Sean's parents and said they were good people. MY friend said, "You change change behavior but you can't change character."

typo: You can change behavior. You can't change character.

I met Johnny Depp thru Sean and worked w/ Johnny. I don't believe Amber Heard's allegations. He was gentle and very down to earth.

Years later, Johnny's mom was dying. Yes, he was drinking and drugging. Have you experienced the pain of your mother dying? I have.

But Amber used and provoked Johnny. Johnny's kids didn't attend the wedding. Johnny's kids and mom barred Amber from the hospital room when Johnny's mom was about to take off. johnny's mom said that Amber didn't treat her son right. Amber served divorce papers the day of Johnny's mother's funeral.

I can believe that Johnny threw bottles and smashed phones but hit a woman? No.

Amber is a grifter. She uses men. Her partner is and will always be Tasya van Ree. Amber ropes men in to support her, advance her career and pay for Tasya's photography.

Come on, who would want to have sex with greasy Vito Schnabel? Elon Musk?

R161 Blanchett is 5'9" in heels only. I've seen her a couple of times and at most she would be 5'7".

by Anonymousreply 16504/16/2019

Redford is 4'11". I was shocked when I saw him.

by Anonymousreply 16604/16/2019

In her movies Jane Fonda looks 5'6 (1.68 cm).

Sean Penn is ugly, short and closeted and a domestic abuser.
