Surprisingly tall famous people

Greetings lovelies. Most of the famous people I've meet/seen have been surprisingly short: Sean Penn, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gabriel Byrne, Nicolas Cage, Robin Williams... Have you met any celebs who are surprisingly tall? Honestly, I can't think of any off the top of my head.

Tell me Clive Owen is tall. Please.

Not really, R25. I've met him, been around him, and he's not 6'. Very close to it, though. He's probably a good solid 5'11" or 5'10". And really, Leo's about the same height as Jake. Ben Affleck's tall.Matt Damon is about 5'11" and Ben has to be about 6'2". Jennifer Garner is taller than I thought she'd be. She's about 5'7"-5'8". Aaron Eckhart isn't tall. He's probably about 5'11. Christian Bale was a surprise. I expected him to be tall and he's not. He's about 5'10" or 5'11". Maggie Gyllenhaal is very tall. She is about the same height as Bale.

I was shocked at how tall Bill Clinton is. He is really tall. Easily 6'3" or 6'4". Jesse Jackson's a solid 6'. Pacino is shorter than I imagined. People like Viggo Mortensen and Ralph Feinnes surprised me. They always seemed tall in their movies and they are SO not.

I guess the bigger question for me is why were you surprised the celeb was tall? For instance the earlier Wopat comment makes sense in that he was surprised because he looks so short compared to Schneider.

Most celebrities have a bigger head to body ratio than normal people. It's part of why we, the audience, notice them on screen.

Consequently celebrities tend to be shorter.

Taller people tend to have a smaller head to body ratio.

"Matt Damon is 5'10. He's the same height as George Clooney and Brad Pitt."

In this picture, Clooney looks about 2-3 inches shorter than both Damon and Pitt, who look to be about the same height. Clooney also has longer hair than Damon or Pitt. Of course, one can't tell from this picture what sort of footwear they have on. I've read that Pitt looks shorter in person than he appears on screen and that Damon is average or slightly below average in height (5'10" or lower).

And he is even better looking in person. Photos don't do him justice. He oozes masculinity in the same way a volcano spews lava. Cameras don't pick up on that, unfortunately.

I think Matt Damon's build gives people the impression he's shorter than he is. Matt is stock built not lanky. Affleck is leaner looking and taller, obviously. I never thought Clooney was really taqll. I picture him around 5'10" or 5'11". But Brad Pitt has to be 6'. Heath Ledger was tall. About 6'2". Seemed taller because he was lean and lanky.

"Matt is fat and waddles like a duck, that's why"

From his movies, I never got the impression that Matt Damon is fat, unless he purposely gained weight for a role like in The Informant. He just seems stocky but is quite muscular when he trains for a role like in the Bourne movies or Invictus.

Why do you think he "waddles like a duck?" What's the reason he does that?

And he's taking these hilariously long strides like he's trying to keep up with the adults.

Bill Clinton. I saw him in a crowd on a sidewalk in DC and he towered over everyone there. It was mostly women there, but he really looked unusually tall. ALL the women there were swooning big time, by the way.

Jack White from The White Stripes, I always thought he was short, until I saw the band in concert and noticed he was over 6 feet!

He's also much thinner in person.

Godzilla. I always thought he was around 350 Ft but was surprised to find out he was at least 400 ft.

Daryl Hannah. I was at the premiere for "Silver City" and she was towering over the rest of the cast. She could've easily used the top of Billy Zane's head (who was standing next to her) as a coffee table.

The sexy tall man I really like is Stephen Merchant. He's mostly a writer but appeared on, I believe, the UK version of the Office as well as in some films.

He's 6 foot 7 and British. Yum.

He was on Conan O'Brien talking about pissing at the beach, and he pantomined kneeling in the water and pulling his cock out. I about shot my load at that moment.....

It's been confirmed that Tomasina Cruise wears some sort of lifts inside his shoes.

There is one infamous photo of him walking in front of Katie Holmes. It was shot at a weird angle, he looks like a little person because she is so much taller than he is!

The angle makes it look as if he comes up to her chest!

I'm surprised Leo is so tall. Something about him makes him look short. I would have guessed he was 5'8 or 5'9.

Martha Stewart looks to be almost 6' tall.

David Hasselhoff. Met him way back when at the IBeam on Haight Street. Tight bubble butt, at least six foot 5 striking blue eyes, very nice.

"Martha Stewart looks to be almost 6' tall." Martha did some modeling in her younger days, so it stands to reason that's she's tall. Her fug daughter, Alexis, actually looks like a tall lanky man!

President Bill Clinton is 6'2. The height of presidential candidates has been the subject of several news stories over the years. Until Dubya Bush "beat" Al Gore, the tallest candidate had won the presidential election over the past several elections. Of course, it's one of those folksy kinds of beliefs with very little, if any, science behind it. One theory suggests that, in the time of television, height became an important issue because the public tends to trust taller people more than short ones. And more people are exposed to the candidates these days.

I find height and the way people perceive it to be very fascinating. You can be dumb as a box of hair but if you're taller than average, people will give you all kinds of chances.

As for tall celebrities, I can't think of any. But I've been to Madame Tussaud's wax museum and was very surprised by the height of some of the wax figures. Since most celebrities pose for their wax likenesses, you can stand next to them and see for yourself how tall some are. Or not. Jodie Foster is tiny as is J Lo. Matthew McBongo is shorter than I thought. Arnold Schwarznegger, Johnny Depp, Mel Gibson, Melissa Etheridge, all very short. Brad Pitt's figure was average height and Angelina Jolie's was kind of tall.

Janet Mcteer is 6ft, I think. David Tennant too

Above, Penn Jillette was mentioned. So also is Teller surprisingly tall - my guess is 5'9" or 5'10". He looks so small next to Penn.

R160 I think that she was a good five foot eleven or so when she was younger. The last time I saw her she looked to be about five foot nine and that happens when us gals reach our seventies and stuff. So I will co sign on your post, then :)%0D %0D Alexis literally looks like a tranny but actually isn't. I have never understood how that happened. She must really take after her dad or something.%0D %0D Someplace. Sometime. I posted in this thread once and cannot recall where. Oh well. Sorry :)
