There’s no doubt that in the world of celebrities, it’s rather tricky to tell as a mere mortal how tall any of them really are just from watching them on TV or the big screen.

So if you ever get a chance to meet your idols in the flesh, it might come as a bit of a shock that those who you always thought were pretty average actually stand above you and almost everyone else.

Here’s just a few celebs who tower over their famous pals:
