Playing The Shortest Leading Men in Hollywood

Josh Hutcherson helped bring in over $123 million this weekend with Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I. And at 5'7", he joins a distinct group of leading men who may loom huge on screen but, in person, aren't quite as tall as you might imagine. We're breaking down Hollywood's "short list," from tallest to shortest.

You'd never guess it but actors Mark Wahlberg and Ben Stiller are just 5'8". That's an inch shy of the average male height.

Josh's Hunger Games co-stars may significantly tower over him but he's certainly not alone in the fight--Hollywood A-listers Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Cruise are also 5'7". And even though the biggest action stars of all time is on the shorter side, he has previously wed glamazon women like Nicole Kidman (5'11") and Katie Holmes (5'9").

Daniel Radcliffe hasn't quite hit that growth spurt yet since his Harry Potter days. The 25-year-old actor is about 5'5" and shares the same height as Dustin Hoffman and Bruno Mars. Hey, not bad company to be in!

Michael J. Fox is an accomplished actor and made a big career for himself in shows like Family Ties and Spin City. But when it comes to his 5'4" size he is considered small.

Kevin Hart has never been insecure about his 5'2" frame. The comedian told Oprah earlier this year that he's always been comfortable about his height, saying, "I'm beyond confident. I'm not cocky, I'm confident. I think I'm sexy." Besides, where he lacks in height he makes up for in box office dollars. His last three films (About Last Night, Ride Along, Think Like A Man Too) raked in over $274 million dollars domestically.
