camera angles make them ook taller, or they get women to bend down in many shots, if the women are taller. easier for famous females to 'increase' their height though- rachel stevens geri halliwell, kylie and sarah michelle gellar are all about 5'1"-5'3", which a lot of people don't realise

I'm 5'6 which is tiny!

I know that Gillian Anderson stood on a box in some scenes in the X-Files because she was so short.

Having mates who do film studies, apparantly they shoot with the camera looking up slightly, this gives the effect of the actors/actresses looking taller than they actually are..

I was suprised to discover that Gael García Bernal is 5'6". He's lovely so don't worry!
