The site  Celebheights.com has always fascinated me. I notice that when people become famous they suddenly become taller, thinner, browner, blonder. They blame their larger boobs on good underwear and their sudden svelteness on a fast metabolism. Onscreen they always look tall. But when you meet celebrities (particularly actors) in real life they are often shorter than you would expect. Bruce Springsteen was way shorter than I had imagined, for example. The average height for a male actor is only 5ft 7in/1.7m.

This site lists many famous people and their heights. You can find out how many celebrities are your height. You can also find tips and tricks for making yourself look taller if that is your thing. I am 6ft with heels on so I would like to be a bit shorter. But they say we are never happy with what we have…Screen Shot 2013-06-03 at 1.10.06 PM
