Famous Short men


In all honesty, I am not one to idolise celebrities, saying that, I do have a lot of respect for guys who have used their skills to become worldwide celebrities or be best of their trade, be it sport, music or acting, so hat’s off to them!

On another truth, being short isn’t easy, the media is against us. You may have read the usual yearly news jargon that taller men make more money, are more successful and have better lives, but this is nonsense!

Yes, sometimes it can be tough being short, however hopefully the list can inspire you to never give up on your dreams. Whether your dream is to become a global music artist or simply get the promotion at work, plan properly, never give up, and never put failures down to height!

The list is jam packed with leaders, sports stars, musicians and very successful, short celebrities.

They have all done fantastic things in their lives; yes, they are Short, but millions of people still look up to them!
