Measuring up.

I recently read in an article about the new Harry Potter movie that lead actor Daniel Radcliffe stood, at age 17, at 5'6". So, just for gits and shiggles (and to get us in the mood for the upcoming 1st Annual Blog Cabins Summer Movie Preview), here are the heights for some other leading men and women from this summer's crop of movies (from shortest to tallest; all heights from http://www.imdb.com):

Scarlett Johansson (The Nanny Diaries): 5' 4"
Jessica Alba (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer): 5' 6"
Tobey Maguire (Spiderman 3): 5' 8"
Mike Myers (Shrek the Third): 5' 8"
Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End): 5' 10"
Matt Damon (The Bourne Ultimatum): 5' 10"
Nicole Kidman (The Invasion): 5' 10½"
Shia LaBeouf (Transformers): 5' 10½"
Bruce Willis (Live Free or Die Hard): 5' 11¾"
Nicolas Cage (Next): 6' 0¾"
Chris Tucker (Rush Hour 3): 6' 1"
John Travolta (Hairspray): 6' 2"
Morgan Freeman (Evan Almighty): 6' 2½"

The lesson here: In Hollywood, it's big to be short.
