A List Petite Celebs

1. Natalie Portman (5’2″)  This petite celebrity wins the Triple Crown of entertainment!  She swept through the Golden Globes, the SAG awards and took the Oscar for her roll as Nina, an obsessive ballerina, in Darren Aaronofsky’s latest film “Black Swan”.  Portman will have three films released this year, including “No Strings Attached” starring Ashton Kutcher in theaters now,  ”Your Highness” and “Thor” coming later this year.  Plus, coming this summer a new baby and a maybe wedding!

2. Sandra Bullock (5’4″) This petite actress is one of the highest income earners in the business.  For the movie “The Blind Side” she earned $20,000,000.  In 2002 she was paid $15,000,000 for “Murder By Numbers.”  Her next movie in production  ”Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” is set to be released in 2012, we are sure she will make a hefty sum!

3. Reese Witherspoon (5’0″) Recently this petite celebrity has become more known in the tabloids for her love life and now with her engagement to CAA agent maybe she can get back to the business of making movies!   Witherspoon is likely the highest paid actress in the business,  she was reportedly paid 15 million for  ”Legally Blonde” and its sequel, a whopping 12.5 million for “Sweet Home Alabama,” another 14 million for “Four Christmases,” 15 million for “Just Like Heaven” and 15 million for “Walk the Line,” and 14 million for “How Do You Know,” starring Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd. Wow, now you can do the math, it pays to be petite!

4. Jennifer Aniston (5’4″) The pretty petite Jennifer Aniston had several films released in 2010, the latest is “Just Go With It,” starring Adam Sandler.  Aniston recently returned back home from Georgia, after filming ” Wanderlust” to be released (2011).  Friends Star Jennifer Aniston, told Rolling Stone magazine in 1999 that ”I’m 110, I’ve been 130, and I’m 5’5″.”  There was some silly rumour a while ago that Jennifer went on a special exercise program and gained 2 inches in height… I’d love to know where that rumor originated!  She’s also said in an interview she’s ’5ft 4″ and 3/4″.

5. Sarah Jessica Parker (5’2″) The petite fashionista is a clothing designer for Halston!  Perhaps she is best known for being Carrie Bradshaw in “Sex in the City,” both in television and on the big screen.  She has also starred with Matthew McConaughey in “Failure to Launch” and in “The Family Stone,” with Luke Wilson.

6. Mila Kunis (5’2″) This petite bombshell’s latest breakout role in “Black Swan” as “Lily” has landed her on the cover of W Magazine!  Before this her voice was more recognizable than her face, as the voice of Meg Griffin on “The Family Guy.”   Mila Kunis has starred in “Max Payne,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and her memorable role as Jackie on “That 70’s Show.”  We suspect she is now on the fast track to major Hollywood success and stardom!

7. Ellen Page (5’0″) The Canadian born petite actress and Oscar-nominee for her breakout role in “Juno” playing an eccentric teenager who finds herself pregnant. This rising petite starlet has been in awarding winning roles in the movies “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “Inception,” starring Leonardo Di Caprio!

We can expect to be seeing a whole lot more from this fresh-faced petite!

9.Halle Berry (5’4″) This half African and half Italian American petite celebrity has blazed a new trail  for actresses.  She was the first and only female African American actress to win an Academy award in 2001 for her role as Leticia Musgrove the love interest of a racist prison guard who had executed her husband while in jail in the movie”Monster’s Ball” starring Billy Bob Thornton.  Berry has come a long way from her start in beauty pageants in the 80′s, she simply saw pageants and modeling as a way to become an actress.  ” I never wanted to be a model. My modeling career was nothing but a stepping stone to my acting career and that’s all I ever saw it as. A pointless rock in the river that has to be stepped on in order to get to the meaningful oasis of acting.”  Berry has starred box many box office thrillers from: “X-Men,” “Die Another Day,” “Perfect Stranger,” and “Gothika,” her break through role was in Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever.”

10. Salma Hayek (5’2″)  Quote: “I act tall!…But look how short I am…I can’t even act to be tall. I’m 5’2′. I can’t even create the illusion that I am tall!
