Fun-Sized and Proud! Check Out the Hottest Shorties in Hollywood for Short Girl Appreciation Day

Let’s hear it for all our shorties out there! Contrary to popular belief, not every woman in Hollywood is as tall as they appear to be. Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Kourtney Kardashian and Ariana Grande prove badass women come in all shapes and sizes. Screens big and small are crawling with little leading ladies who are vertically challenged. But what they lack in height, they make up for with their immense talent.

The average height for women around the world is about 5-foot-3, according to Medical News Today, like Natalie Portman. In the United States, the average female height is about 5-foot-4 (Mila Kunis), while in many Asian countries, the average height is 5-foot (Hayden Panettiere) and in Europe, the average is 5-foot-6. Despite the averages, they’re plenty of female performers who don’t measure up — and the tallest shorty on our list is below the European average. In the words of Shakespeare, “And though she be but little, she is fierce.”

For Short Girl Appreciation Day, we have rounded up some of our favorite celebs who are fun-sized and proud. Scroll below for a look at some of our favorite mini, yet mighty stars.
