Sure, being on the short side may preclude you from going on a few rides at Disney or from reaching that oddly placed kitchen cabinet — you know, the little one above your fridge — but there is nothing wrong with not being tall, and these short celebrity women would probably agree.
For instance, Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke is one badass chick. The Mother of Dragons slays both onscreen and off, and she does so while standing at 5 feet, 2 inches tall. In short, she’s a pint-size powerhouse. And Clarke is not alone: Lady Gaga, Kristen Bell and the Olsen twins all command attention in spite of their small size.
So, who else makes up the list of short female celebrities? Here are 25 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.
