When I think of famous actresses and singers, I imagine a statuesque height that demands attention on the red carpet, the big screen, and the concert stage. However, there are many stars who are teeny tiny. Of course, there are short celebs, but some of these may surprise you. Click through for 22 short female celebrities who prove that big talent can come in small packages.

Ariana Grande

You probably knew Ariana Grande was short — her last name may be “Grande,” but Ariana is ironically very petite — but did you know she's only 5'0"?

Kim Kardashian

The biggest reality star around is actually teeny tiny. Kim Kardashian only stands at 5'3".

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden Panettiere’s fiancé Wladimir Klitschko is tall at 6’6" while the starlet is miniature in comparison at 5’2".

Hilary Duff

The “All About You” singer is super petite at only 5'2" tall.

Reese Witherspoon

The big time Hollywood actress is just a smidgen over five feet tall with a height of 5'1"

Lena Dunham

The Girls' star has a big personality on-screen and off but she is only 5’3".

Amy Poehler

The funny lady is only 5'2".

Mila Kunis

The new mom is a stunning beauty standing at 5'4" tall. In comparison, fiancé Ashton Kutcher towers over her at 6'3".

Megan Fox

Megan Fox has worked as a model as well as an actress which made me think she was tall, but she’s actually just 5’4. That girl sure knows how to work with what she is given. 

Rachel Bilson

To overcome being 5'2", Rachel Bilson told Women’s Health that she wears nude heels to elongate her height. Ahh so that’s how she tricked me. Well played, girl.

Lea Michele

Even though she has some powerhouse singing pipes, Lea Michele is just 5'3".

Christina Aguilera

There seems to be some debate over Christina Aguilera’s height with some sources claiming she is anywhere from 5'0" to 5’2", but anything within that range makes her a pint size pop star.


I think I was way too distracted by Shakira’s amazing abs to notice that she is just 5'2".

Meghan Trainor

For a lady who sings “All About That Bass,” a song that talks about how its better to be bigger with a booty, it’s funny that she’s super teeny. Meghan Trainor is only, according to our own calculations, about 5'3" or 5'4".

Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian is almost an entire foot shorter than boyfriend Scott Disick who is 5'11" while Kardashian stands at 5'0" even.

Emma Roberts

The American Horror Story star is pretty petite with a height of 5'2".

Anna Kendrick

The Oscar and Tony award nominee is only 5'2" tall. It’s hard to tell though with all the long gowns she wears on the red carpet.

Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson might seem tall with those heels she wears, but she's only 5'3".

Salma Hayak

Oscar nominee Salma Hayak is only 5'2"

Scarlett Johansson

This one really threw me off. Scarlett Johansson always seems to be standing tall in high heels and long gowns, but the actress is just 5’3".

Sarah Hyland

The adorable Modern Family Star gets away with playing a teenager because she is only 5’2".

Lucy Hale

This Pretty Little Liars star is actually pretty little with a height of 5'2".
