The Quick 10: 10 Famous Short People

Image credit: 

I'm a relatively short girl. To make myself feel better, I have a lovely collection of heels, I only hang out with people shorter than me (5'2" and under) and I write lists and lists of famous short people. OK, I'm lying. I do have lots of pretty shoes, but this is my first short people list.

Disclaimer: I'm not including people who were actually diagnosed with dwarfism or growth hormone deficiency, just short people.
