Exactly, this is like the NFL of theater nerds. Some of these theater nerds end up not that unattractive but still carry the slight build and fricked up mental states we all experienced in our local high schools.


I believe most actors are short, as state earlier, so that they can appear in the same frame with actresses. It would look funny if a 6'4 man were to kiss a 5'5 woman. I don't believe you could put that on screen. I know this because my wife is 5'5 and I am 6'4 and I rarely even try to kiss her while standing.

Most of these are right on, but it's off on Bardem (5'11" almost 6') and Clooney (5'10")

I figured that Ben Stiller would be shorter than a number of the other people on the list, such as Robert Downey Jr., Javier Bardem, and Jack Black.

Stiller doing movies with tall frickers like Vince Vaughn made me think he was a lot shorter than he really is.

Yep..and when you see them in frames with actual tall people it almost looks cartoonish. Like, Harrison and Liam in K-19, or Crowe/Pierce and Cromwell in LA Confidential, etc.

Doesn't appear to be off if you look at the picture I posted on page 1 with him next to Woody.
