Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is one of the most memorable figures in reality television. However, it’s startling that with such a huge reputation she’s only 4'8". She is one of the shortest women in Hollywood. It makes her wild behavior and insane drinking on The Jersey Shore seem all the more disturbing because one bottle of alcohol is her whole body weight.

The mystery behind Lady Gaga’s iconic, freakishly tall heels finally revealed. The pop-icon powerhouse is only 5'1". Still, her stage presence feels about 10 feet tall. This meat-wearing musician hardly ever wears flats so it’s no surprise people may not have noticed.

Richie came into the public eye as Paris Hilton’s pint-sized friend on The Simple Life. However, she quickly established herself as a fashion icon. It can be a little scary that her very thin frame makes her look much taller than 5'1".

Jada Pinkett Smith

Pinkett has always been a spitfire in iconic roles in The Matrix Reloaded and Set It Off. It can be hard to imagine she’s 5' even especially when her husband Will Smith is 6'2". She’s already shorter than son Jaden and only time will tell if Willow will be taller than mom.

Reese Witherspoon

Witherspoon feels like the female Tom Cruise. Her memorable film roles rarely acknowledge how small she is. Bonus points for camera work, guys! But she is only 5'1". It’s strange her height was never even mentioned in Legally Blonde. Objection!

Bell is pretty well known as one of Hollywood’s smaller actresses at 5'1". It helps that her hubby Dax Shepard is 6'2". Her iconic role as Veronica Mars also celebrated her height allowing her to hide in small spaces and sneak around undetected. Given the success of Frozen she’s getting much bigger... in notoriety.

Paula Abdul

Abdul has been a pop star, reality star, and a has-been star. At 5' even this pop diva has always been the shortest American Idol judge. Was she on the show for so long to make Ryan Seacrest taller?

Ariana Grande

Grande is doing triple duty as star of her hit tween show Sam & Cat, major musician, and budding super celebrity. It can be hard to reconcile the huge buzz with her 5'1" stature. But her pipes and immense vocal range have made her one of the biggest stars of the moment.

Minogue is one of the biggest pop stars in the world and she’s 5'. Is her height the secret to staying so youthful? It definitely has not hindered her success. She’s had a robust career for over 25 years.

People often don’t realize that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are fraternal twins because they are so startlingly identical. But one sign is Mary Kate is 5' and Ashley is 5'1". They are the most powerful set of twins in Hollywood history. They have been ruling Hollywood since they were babies so it’s no surprise that power comes in small packages.

Chandra Wilson

Wilson is 5' and one of the most important parts of her series Grey’s Antomy. Her character Miranda Bailey may be shorter than her fellow actors but that doesn’t stop her from bossing them all around. Not only does Wilson have major presence on Grey’s she’s also a gifted musical theater actor.

Fisher has one of the most iconic roles in film history as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise. It’s hard to believe that she’s only 5'1" compared to Han Solo (Harrison Ford) who is 6'1".
14
Lil' Kim

Lil’ Kim lives up to her name at 4’11". The rap star was always a major force in hip hop and brought performances that rivaled her taller and male counterparts including Notorious B.I.G. Here’s hoping she can make a come back and have less of a lil’ career.
15
AnnaSophia Robb

Robb is a child actress who is quickly growing up with her more adult role on the teen version of Sex and the City, The Carrie Diaries. However, she stands tall at 5'. As a younger version of Carrie Bradshaw maybe she’ll literally grow to match Sarah Jessica Parker who is 5'3".

Everyone seems so much taller in television and movies. But Hudgens’ celebrity boyfriends also seem significantly taller next to this pint-sized actress. It’s hard to believe that she’s only 5'1" which calls into question the height of her famous exes Zac Efron (5'8") and Josh Hutcherson (5'7").

Kristen Chenoweth

Chenoweth has one of the most powerful and iconic voices in Hollywood and Broadway history. And yet, she’s one of the most petite actresses on the scene. She always brings a ton of energy and is such a huge part of scenes she’s in. It’s pretty shocking that she’s only 4'11".
18
Kourtney Kardashian

None of the Kardashians are particularly tall, except Khloe who seems freakishly tall at 5'10". Kourtney is the most tiny at 5' even. It must be why she is the easiest to forget. Her elfin frame allows her to pass around without much attention…or maybe it’s because Khloe and Kim are way more outspoken.
