To Top

Being physically unique can either be a blessing or a curse for actors trying to make it in Hollywood. Actors who are extremely tall are able to land specific roles, but a large stature also limits the diversity of the characters they can play. These stars of impressive heights have been able to use their verticalness to build successful acting careers.

1. Vince Vaughn

Funny-man Vince Vaughn is extremely tall, but it’s even more noticeable when he stars alongside petite actresses like the 5’1 Reese Witherspoon and 5’1 Kristen Bell. At 6’5 Vaughn is one of the tallest men in Hollywood. He’s also one of the funniest. This year, Vaughn’s set to star in and produce Term Life, a crime-thriller film.

2. Richard Kiel

Best remembered as bad guy Jaws from Moonraker and Inspector Gadget, Kiel stands at an impressive 7’2. Kiel’s height and facial features were a result of a hormonal condition known as acromegaly. Kiel’s career began in the early 1960’s. He was the first pick to play The Hulk in The Incredible Hulk TV series. He also starred in The Giant of Thunder Mountain, Happy Gilmore and lent his voice to 2010’s Tangled. Unfortunately, the larger than life star passed away in 2014 at 74.
