Can you really trust what you see on screen? Apart from all the visual effects, there are tricks cameramen use that can really change a person’s appearance. They can make an actor look taller than he actually is, for example. Don’t believe? Here are a few handsome male stars whose actual height will really surprise you. And while Elijah Wood’s height may not be such a shocking revelation, have you ever considered Tom Cruise to be one of the shorties?
Yes, next to the skinny Sherlock Holmes portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch anyone will look a few inches shorter, but after the Hobbit it became quite obvious – Martin Freeman is not tall at all. His height is 5’6”.
Once again, next to his lanky co-star Jim Parsons who portrays Sheldon, Johnny Galecki’s height becomes even more obvious. No camera tricks can save him! Johnny Galecki’s height is 5’5” but we don’t really care about that because he’s starring in the best TV show in the world!
