List RulesTallest celebrities over 6'2. No professional athletes.

Some of the tallest men in Hollywood may not seem so on your screen. Paired alongside other tall actors, shorts actors wearing lifts, and actresses of all shapes and sizes, it's hard to tell just how much these famous tall men tower over their coworkers. This list of the tallest men in the world includes actors, musicians, politicians, and other famous tall guys dead and alive - but not athletes. No, you won't find hundreds of basketball players or wrestlers listed here, because then the list could go on forever.

What does it mean to grow up very tall? While the heights of these tall men are "official," don't forget that celebrity people sometimes fudge their numbers. Still, even if they tacked on an inch or two, each of the tallest celebrities on this list is still pretty tall. Do you think this led to their successes in life, since the world rewards manly men? Who surprises you?
