Celebrities' on-screen appearances can be ever-so-deceiving. Whether they're on the big screen, your television, your smartphone, live in concert or even at a panel, actors and musicians alike all seem much taller than they actually are. For instance, take Game of Thrones' Emilia Clark. When you watch her as the badass Daenerys Targaryen, by no means are you thinking, "Wow, she must only be, what, 5 foot 2?" Or look at Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga. When she performed at the Super Bowl in 2017, she was so larger-than-life and a total powerhouse, she looked anything but small.

All this is to say (and, yes, we're about to drop a gem of a cliché): Big things truly do come in small packages.

So who else makes up the list of short celebrity women? Here are 20 ladies who are surprisingly (and some not-so-surprisingly) 5 feet 2 inches or shorter.

These ladies may be small in stature, but they're definitely not short on personality and talent.
