How well do you know the heights of your favorite celebrities? Television shows and the big screen do a pretty good job at making tall people short and short people tall. In Hollywood they use a number of tricks to help their awkwardly sized actors look average sized. Whether they change the camera angle or have the actors wear lifts, they get the job done pretty well. Don’t believe me? Let’s see how much you know…

Who is taller…Chewbacca or Shaquille O’Neal?

-Peter Mayhew is the name of the famous actor that’s inside the costume of our furry friend Chewbacca, he stands at 7’3″, by himself, and with the costume on he towers at an astounding height of 7’6″. Shaquille on the other hand does tower over almost everyone he meets, but standing next to Mr. Chewbacca he would have to look up just to talk to him. Shaquille O’Neal is 7’1″.

Here is a fun one for you…Who is taller…Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber?

-Maybe a better questions would be “who would you want to back you up in a fight?” Now I don’t know about you, but I would feel a lot safer with Taylor backing me up. Not only is she one inch taller, but she seems to have a lot of built up anger based on all of the songs she writes about bad break-ups. She is 5’10” and Mr. Bieber is only 5’9″.

Who is taller…Arnold Schwarzenegger or Hulk Hogan?

-Both of them are body builders and appear to be above the average size. Before I looked up their heights I was certain that Arnold was at least as tall or taller than Governor Schwarzenegger. Turns out; however, that Mr. Hulk towers over Arnold by five whole inches! Hulk Hogan is 6’7″ and Arnold Schwarzenegger is only 6’2″.

So what did I tell you? Were you deceived? I certainly was.
