The Top Ten Sexiest Shorties
When I think of NEED FOR SPEED and its star Aaron Paul, I can only think of having a short man complex. (The actor is often listed as being 5'8" which some might not consider to be short for a dude but let's face it - Tom Cruise used to insist he was 5'9" until reports finally pegged him more accurately at barely 5'7", so we all know how the lies work on that level.) Traditionally I've followed tall men around in my life but there's something tantalizing about a shortie. It's a more common thing for those who love women, so this week, let's look at the hottest women 5'3" and under.
With her big head (made especially bigger when she's rocking the Carrie Bradshaw blonde curls) and her 5' tall body, it's not hard to make the bobblehead comparison. But AnnaSophia Robb came ready to combat that comparison, surprising most of us with the fact that she balances it all out with that amazing ass of hers. If you can't stretch it up, find ways to pleasingly stretch it out.
Zoe Kravitz is my favorite petite hottie. Yeah, there are ton of women in the entertainment industry who are pocket sized, ones that have been working with their tiny curves for much longer than Zoe has but there's something about her dimensions that look far more natural and less freakish on her than on others. At 5'2" and a bare whip of a body, the offspring of Lenny & Lisa makes it work.
In the land of Hollywood couplings, it was Jada Pinkett Smith's marriage to Will Smith that had people laughing. Sure, both of them are funny people but for whatever reason, people always get a kick out of a tall dude (Willie is 6'2") with a short beauty. At barely 5 feet in height, Jada has cornered the market on being the badass who can't reach the top shelf. Good thing she has Will to do it for her.
Out of her main cast of 4, Lucy Hale is the Pretty Littlest Liar at barely 5'2". In fact, out of that entire group, it seems that Hale's character is the one with the most chutzpah, prompting the totally cute and completely correct assertion from co-star Troian Bellisario, "You're little, but you're big." I concur.
Veronica Mars has been having an awesome winter/spring season. She's piped up in FROZEN and seen strong numbers for her Kickstarted movie. Would we have backed Kristen Bell if she'd been taller than her 5'1"? Sure, seeing as how I doubt Bell would be any less lovable in any other size. It just helps that her wee body is so easy to embrace in the size it already is.
I recall with fondness the scene in "Pushing Daisies" where Chenoweth stands on top of a coffee table in order to still be shorter than 6'3" co-star, Lee Pace. While her pixie size makes her adorable, her bubbly attitude and buxom body fill the screen with her beautiful effervescence. No extra inches required.
Were the Tasmanian Devil to have been from Mexico, he definitely would have been Salma Hayek. How else would you describe a 5'1" babe who has managed such a dynamically successful career while being both dyslexic and afflicted with ADHD? Salma, we wouldn't have you any other way.
She definitely acts bigger than her 5'1" frame would suggest. Frequently quoted as being taller than she is, Liu makes up for her stature by dominating either the big or small screens that she's on. Seeing as how she's 45-years old now, we might even start to see her shrink - height wise - a bit from here on out. Attitude wise, I doubt shrinkage will ever happen.
You can only pitch her a wee 5 feet and 2 inches, if that's what you're into. One of Hollywood's ninja hotties, Anna Kendrick often keeps her brightest headlights under wraps, but it's a hard job, masking all that sexy.
Perhaps being 5'3" doesn't make her totally broke in the height game but when you factor in everything that Kat Dennings packs into those 63 inches, there's a whole other dynamic to appreciate. No one can curb my enthusiasm for this smokin' hot diminutive babe.
