When you think of Hollywood movie stars, you might think of the most beautiful human specimens that nature has to offer. While much of this has to do with looks, it’s hard to deny that a lot of it also has to do with height. Despite this traditional concept, many film stars throughout cinema history have actually been below the average male height. These actors have each been able to stand out in the entertainment industry despite their lack of height, thanks usually to some other unique attribute that no one else has.

When it comes to actors like Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, the thing that they have to make up for their lack of height is their boisterous voice. Al is 5 feet 7 inches tall, though he has still made a name for himself playing intimidating gangsters and streetwise cops in classic films. Likewise, Joe Pesci is even shorter than Al and has still been able to intimidate audiences with his portrayals of criminal characters.
Both of the aforementioned actors have gotten by on their acting chops, while Tom Cruise has gotten by on his looks. Despite the fact that Tom is 5 foot 7, he has still been able to make a name for himself as an action hero thanks to his workout regimen, as well as the fact that he's willing to perform his own stunts. Other actors we'll be taking a look at in this video include Humphrey Bogart, Michael J. Fox, and Danny DeVito.
