No matter how many photos you may have seen of a particular celebrity, one fact remains almost universally true: When you see the star in person, she is likely to look either significantly shorter or, sometimes, significantly taller than you thought. Some of it is camera tricks, sure. Or styling tricks. But in many cases, it’s simply that it’s hard to gauge a person’s height until you’re standing next to them.
So how tall are celebrities in real life? We did all the research for you and found out the fascinating facts. Lady Gaga, for instance, stands at only 5'1" without her signature towering heels, while Kate Middleton stands at a statuesque 5'10". (And yes, there are even celebrities over 6 feet—can you guess who they are?)
