When you see famous actors up on the big screen, they seem larger than life. But sometimes that presence is just a Hollywood illusion. For proof, look no further than these celebrity men who are shorter than you thought.

Whether they are surprisingly short actors, pop stars, or comedians, these men prove that you don't have to be six feet tall in order to make it. There are plenty of leading men who are short who make it work. Heck, Prince was 5'2”, and he was Prince (although that might have been for the best – if Prince were any taller, it would have been too much awesomeness to handle).

From Bruno Mars to Tom Cruise, Aziz Ansari to Daniel Radcliffe, here are some celebrity men who are super short, or at least shorter than you thought. But on the bright side, they're the perfect onscreen matches for famous women who are teeny tiny.
