17 SHORTEST Actors In The World!

Although most actors are known for their role-playing
accomplishments on the Hollywood big-screen, some are also known for being not-so-big off-screen. From the celeb who portrayed a courageous
wizard to the man who plays “Hand of the Queen,” here are 17 of the shortest actors
in the world: 17. Tom Cruise – People recognize this A-list
actor from the several award-winning films he’s starred in over the years. From the Mission Impossible movie series to
profound flicks like Vanilla Sky, there aren’t many characters this artist can’t play. Considering his numerous Oscar nominations
and Golden Globe wins, there’s no question Tom Cruise is great at what he does. But just as he’s known for his talents,
fans also recognize him for his shorter-than-average height. It’s hard to tell by his roles in films,
but Cruise is just 5’7” tall. Although he lacks the gene for high stature
physically, it’s had no negative effect on his career. 16. Al Pacino – From Scent of a Woman to Scarface,
this A-list actor has done it all. He started his career out strong by playing
the role of Michael Corleone in the transcendent film, The Godfather, which released in 1972. Al Pacino went on to win an Oscar, four Golden
Globes, a Primetime Emmy, and other various awards. Even though this star has an overwhelming
presence on the big screen, he isn’t very tall behind the scenes. At 5’7”, he’s not the shortest guy around,
but still doesn’t embody the height of the average man. Pacino doesn’t reach shoulder-to-shoulder
with other actors, but he’s one to watch out for when it comes to unmatched skill. Make sure you don’t judge this book by its
cover, or you might end up saying hello to his little friend. 15. David Spade – This comedic genius stepped
onto the scene in the late 1980s, and he’s been making fans laugh ever since. From his long-lived role on the TV series,
Saturday Night Light, to the voicing of Kuzco in the animated film, The Emperor’s New
Groove, in 2000, David Spade has made himself known from coast to coast. Other notable performances include his work
in Joe Dirt in 2001 and The Benchwarmers in 2006. Even though this actor only reaches 5’7”
in height, his comical talent doesn’t have a limit. From his Golden Globe nominations to his various
winning roles, there’s no telling how many aces this Spade has up his sleeve. 14. Ben Stiller – This kooky, heart-warming comedic
actor and filmmaker has been in the game since the mid-1980s. Since he comes from parents who were both
in the same business, it isn’t shocking that his passions lie in the motion picture
industry. Luckily for us, Stiller’s success has produced
gems like Tropic Thunder in 2008 and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty in 2013. At just 5’7”, he brings a lot of know-how
to the table in a shorter-than-average package. In the words of his 2001 Zoolander character,
Derek Zoolander, you might say he should be “at least three times bigger than this!” However, that just isn’t true when you have
as much skill as Ben Stiller. 13. Jonah Hill – This 34-year-old actor has been
in numerous films including Get Him to the Greek in 2010 and 21 Jump Street in 2012. He has even won awards like the MTV Movie
Award in 2014 and the Teen Choice Award that same year. He’s also received Oscar nominations for
his parts in The Wolf of Wall Street in 2013 and Moneyball in 2011. Jonah Hill is most notable for his comedic
roles, but there’s nothing funny about this guy’s proven talent. At just 5’7”, he doesn’t meet the international
standard for male height, but that hasn’t stopped him from achieving his dreams. Hill has performances in another movie releasing
this year, so this accomplished actor isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. 12. Dustin Hoffman – This 80-year-old’s career
has progressed tremendously since 1960. While studying music in college, Hoffman discovered
his passion for acting. After a lot of hard work, he went on to star
in films like 1979’s Kramer vs. Kramer and Meet the Fockers in 2004. He’s even won a couple of Oscars including
one for his work in the former and another for his leading role in the 1988 movie, Rain
Man. It’s safe to say that this actor’s height
hasn’t stopped him from accomplishing his dreams. At just under 5’6”, he doesn’t stand
as high as most men. Even though this guy doesn’t measure up
to most in inches, he’s reached the highest heights in talent. 11. Elijah Wood – This actor has his roots in
Iowa but has made quite the impression on Hollywood’s radar over the years. Elijah Wood began his career as a model in
his hometown and eventually got work in films like The Adventures of Huck Finn in 1993 as
the main character, at just twelve years old. However, his real recognition came later in
2001 for his role as Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings series. Considering this character was a hobbit or
halfling, it’s no surprise that the actor himself isn’t exactly the tallest guy around. Wood is 5’6”, not the shortest, but he
certainly doesn’t have his head in the clouds literally-speaking. 10. Jack Black – This comedic actor has made a
name for himself through many films since he first came onto the scene in 1982 at the
young age of 13. After his first widely recognized role in
the 2000 film High Fidelity, he starred in other movies including School of Rock in 2003
and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle just last year. Although he has a huge personality, Jack Black
isn’t a very big guy. At just 5’6”, he’s under most international
averages. But that doesn’t keep this comedian from
doing what he loves. He’s won many awards including the Kids’
Choice Award for his work in Kung Fu Panda in 2008. So even if he has trouble reaching the top
shelf, he has no problem making waves in Hollywood. 9. Daniel Radcliffe – This English actor is still
young, but has made huge moves in the motion picture industry. Although he’s mostly known for his work
in the Harry Potter series, Daniel Radcliffe has had starring roles in numerous movies
and television shows including this year’s film, Beast of Burden, and the TV series,
Miracle Workers. Although his character, Harry Potter, would
have no trouble grasping hard-to-reach items with a simple flick of his wand, Radcliffe
himself may have more difficulty in real life. This wizard of the acting world is only 5’5”,
much shorter than the majority of men. But that doesn’t prevent him from racking
up nominations and awards due to his undeniable talent. 8. Michael J. Fox – This Canadian-born actor
has been on the scene since 1973. However, the role that truly jump-started
his career was his portrayal of Marty McFly in the 1985 film, Back to the Future. He’s known for other work as well including
a couple of television shows, like Spin City from 1996 to 2001 and The Good Wife from 2010
to 2016. It’s safe to say Michael J. Fox has made
a big impact even if he doesn’t measure up to most men physically. This award-winning star is just under 5’5”,
but that hasn’t stopped him from taking home four Golden Globes and five Primetime
Emmys throughout his career so far. Although Fox can’t travel back in time in
real life, there’s no need since he’ll continue to accomplish great things in the
future. 7. Kevin Hart – Although this comedian began
his career on stage doing stand-up, he has prospered in the field of acting, while continuing
his live performances. Kevin Hart had a rough introduction to the
entertainment industry, similar to most people who are just starting out. He was reportedly unpopular during his first
appearance at The Laff House in his hometown. After continuing his efforts in spite of initial
defeat, Hart was cast in television movies and series, like North Hollywood in 2001 and
Undeclared from 2002 to 2003. He went on to take roles in bigger-name films
like Ride Along in 2014 to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle just last year. He’s known for all of these achievements,
but people also recognize him as being somewhat shorter than most. Hart stands at 5’4”, and has even included
his compactness in some of his stand-up routines over the years. This actor may have trouble reaching the top
of the fridge, but he has no problem attaining new heights in his career. 6. Seth Green – A huge deal in the world of comedy,
this actor is ahead of the curve when it comes to making people laugh. Seth Green has played in movies like Without
a Paddle in 2004 and Dear Dictator just recently. He’s also well-known for his ongoing work
in television series including Robot Chicken and Family Guy, and has taken home several
awards for the former. Although he’s reached new heights through
his career, Green only stands at 5’4”. But, what this actor doesn’t have regarding
tallness, he makes up for in comedic genius. 5. Rob Schneider – As a laugh-invoking and long-standing
comedian, this indigenous Californian has been in all kinds of humorous movies throughout
his career. From Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo in 1999 to
The Hot Chick in 2002, Rob Schneider has been on the big screen for upwards of thirty years. Even though this actor is known for his proven
skills in comedy, he’s also noted for being quite a bit under average height. At just over 5’3”, Schneider isn’t exactly
the tallest drink of water, but regarding his accomplishments, he shouldn’t be underestimated. What this guy lacks in stature, he makes up
for with his out-of-this-world personality! 4. Joe Pesci – This New Jersey native has a long
and successful history in acting. From Raging Bull in 1980 to Home Alone in
1990, Pesci is well-known for playing resilient and explosive characters. Other roles he’s held include Tommy DeVito
from Goodfellas in 1990 and Vinny Gambini from My Cousin Vinny in 1992. Since he only stands at 5’3”, it’s hard
to imagine him correctly depicting the personalities of so many ruthless, larger-than-life men,
but he does it well. He’s won several awards for his work including
an Oscar and a BAFTA Film Award. Although he’s compact, Pesci is in no way
short of acting prowess. 3. Danny DeVito – As a filmmaker and actor, this
Jersey-born man does outstanding work as far as movies go. From playing alongside Jack Nicholson in 1975’s
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to producing award-winning films like 1994’s Pulp Fiction,
Danny DeVito is a force to be reckoned with. Since he’s made such a big name for himself,
you probably wouldn’t guess that his height doesn’t quite match up to his reputation. This actor is less than 5 feet tall, topping
off at just around 4’11”. Nevertheless, DeVito’s less-than-average
height hasn’t kept him from reaching for the stars. 2. Peter Dinklage – This Golden-Globe-winning
actor is most known for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister in the ongoing HBO series, Game
of Thrones. His character in the show is often referred
to as “the Halfman” because he lacks the stature of his on-screen siblings. Even though they look down on him throughout
the program, there’s no turning your nose up to Peter Dinklage in real life. He may be just 4’5”, but this actor turns
heads in Hollywood. He’s been awarded for roles in films like
The Station Agent from 2003 and has appeared in movies like X-Men: Days of Future Past
in 2014. He even played alongside Will Ferrell in the
2003 Christmas feature, Elf, as the serious author, Miles Finch. During the film, Ferrell’s character, Buddy,
confuses him with one of Santa’s helpers, unintentionally poking fun at Finch’s height. Buddy then dubs him “angry elf” and hilarity
ensues. Needless to say, Peter’s talent and good-humored
personality go above and beyond the average Joe’s capabilities. 1. Warwick Davis – This English actor has been
on-screen since the early 1980s. From his roles in fantasy films to science-fiction
flicks, Warwick Davis’s talents go far beyond his height. He only stands 3’6”, but he brings a lot
to the table through characters he can play because of that fact. He’s held various parts in renowned series
like the Harry Potter films, where he gave, not one, but three separate performances! These characters included Griphook, Professor
Filius Flitwick, and a goblin banker working at Gringotts. Davis has also played in other movies like
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in 2005 and various parts in the Star Wars series. So, even if this actor is well below the average
height, it hasn’t been an obstacle throughout his successful career.

    Warwick Davis and Peter Dinklage shouldn't count because they're midgets so naturally they're going to be shorter than the average man

    Why would a mans height be a short coming to him, spud web was under 5'8, and could dunk a basketball all kinds of different ways, I know several under 5'11 that can dunk a basketball all kinds of ways, some of the fastest men of the past have been between 5'7-5'11; the strongest man ever pound for pound was only 5'2, and weighed 135 pounds!!! Oh, and for you stupid females that believe height dictates a mans manhood is a stupid idea also!!! The most decorated soldier of all time was Audie Murphy, check into his stature; then ask those who went to war with him, how he measured up as a man!!! Some of the greatest fighters of all time in martial arts, or boxing have been under 5'10 Chuck Norris, and Bruce Lee being two!!!

    5' 7" seems to be the height they all are, some one is lying. It's like a high school football program. They always add 3" and 20 lbs. just sayin! Coming from someone that only stands just under 5'4". Yes I wear lifts in my shoes. I become a whole 5' 6". 😂

  5. Cecelia Tkach Author

    All these fake males are really females. Bones structure doesn't lie. The reason these females have gotten top roles that have been money makers is simple.

    They all have Illuminati/Masonic/skulls & Bones, etc. backing and are all supporters of bathomet.

    If you'll notice, they all have mental issues and have fooled the masses. Some of the females have given birth to their own children while parading as males.

    Danny Davito, Peter, Warwick Davis should all be males.

    Al Pacino and Tom Cruise tremendous actors, OK I'm agree about it, but Pacino is not 5/7 height, he's equal to Dustin Hoffman 5/5, Cruise 5/6 max.

  9. Wordsmith 430 Author

    Most of these are wrong. Kevin Hart is obviously closer to 5’2. Seth Green also. Al Pacino is about 5’5. It sounds like you took your height references from google which list actors about two inches taller than they really are. Poorly researched

  10. M. C. Author

    Your being generous to say they’re 5’7”. Tom Cruise and Pacino closer to 5’6”. Cruise wears lifts….that’s common knowledge.

  11. Gisley Alves Author

    Yes, they are short…with huge talent and one of the highest payment in the world…right Dustin Hoffman, Daniel Radcliffe, El Paccino and Tom Cruise ? Greetings from BRAZIL. 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

  12. The Triggering Author

    If I was short, this video would have made me mad, which I think the creator was going for, lol. She must have got dumped by a short guy.

  13. Fat Tony Author

    I'm 5'7". I consider myself a short guy compared to other Dutch men who are the tallest people in the world. However when I go to visit South East Asia, I feel like a giant among midgets as long as there are no other Western tourists around!

  14. James Lee Author

    Wait…this is a list of the shortest actors in the "WORLD"??? Really? The whole world? I only heard names of actors from Hollywood, UK, or born in Canada. You realize that there are hundreds of other actors ALL OVER South America, Asia, and Africa that are shorter? In Asia for instance, 5'7" is pretty much the average height for a male. Anyone taller than that is an exception. But yes, many of these can be actors. You realize that? Change your title!
