Daniel Radcliffe comes to terms with his height

Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter, says he’s finally come to terms with his height — or rather — lack of height. He says he was concerned that his co-stars, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, would grow taller than him during the filming of the Harry Potter movies, but luckily, they remained approximately the same height up until the fifth film in the series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He told MTV News: “I didn’t get particularly worried because as long as Emma and Rupert weren’t shooting up too quickly either, I’d look (fine). We’d all look relatively (the same height). It was all going to be okay.” However, the actor, who’s approximately 5’1″, says he would have liked to have been taller than he is, but he seems to be handling the situation with humor. He says, “I was worried on a personal level because I wanted to be slightly taller than I am, ideally. But I’ve now accepted it. Basically, I came to the conclusion a while ago that you can either be really bitter about it or you can make loads of funny jokes. When I meet people now and they all say, ‘God you’re so much shorter than I expected!’ I always say, ‘No! I’m actually slightly further away than you think’, which confuses them.” Daniel’s new movie, The Woman in Black, opens today across Canada.

    Being a small person myself, I find Daniel to be the perfect height…

    I agree, he’s absolutely adorable.

    He’s only an inch shorter than me. ^_^

    They got it wrong, he’s 5’5″ according to IMDB….5’1″ would be really short.

  5. Joshua • February 3, 2012 @ 1:14 PM

    Yeah i feel him. All the men in my family are 6 feet or higher and i ended up 5’7. Not much you can do except doing an Ethan Hawk from Gataca. lol

    Actually imdb has it wrong. I won tickets to the premiere in Toronto and got to meet him and he’s shorter than me (I’m 5’3″). I was looking down at him (and I wasn’t wearing heels). I guesstimated he was somewhere between 5′ and 5’2″. Anyway, imdb has Emma Watson listed as 5’5″ too but she’s a lot taller than Daniel.

    Seriously Missy? Wow, I did not expect that.

    Everyone has their crap… This piece only proves that movie stars are just like everyone else in their insecurities, and that money can’t buy everything…

    he is a great actor either way and very versatile in his acting. and I love his eyes i met his parents and him when he was quite young before the harry potter series he sent me a letter and a autographed photo when he got the role of harry he is a nice young man not spoiled like a lot of those young actors.

    Better to be short and trim than tall and obese.

    plus ladies, you can carry him in your purse wherever you go

    Not that it really matters, but I think he admitted somewhere that he was 5’4 and a half. Most sources say 5’5 though. Emma is probably around 5’5… maybe add half an inch. She’s not that much taller than him. The only reason why she looks so much taller than him during premieres is because she wears heals which gives her a couple extra inches. When they are on set and in the film, she is only just slightly taller than him.

    Tribute really sometimes write the dumbest articles. He isn’t 5’1. At least make sure your information is, oh I don’t know, correct…?

  14. Brian • February 6, 2012 @ 12:58 AM

    Maybe he can stand on his money. He’ll be 6’+ plus as result.

  15. Lucy • August 4, 2012 @ 6:39 AM

    He’s NOT 5’1. Definitely not. I mean, what even? He’s 5’5 according to many sources.

    Daniel is slightly taller than Emma.

    I’ve met Emma in real life 2 years ago, and she’s about 5’4″ (5’6″ with a heel on, maybe) so Daniel must be at least 5’5″, as reported.

    it does not matters if he is 165 m tall.there are many celebrities in the holly-wood that are not than 5,7.So it does not matters and don,t feel bad about your height.it shows you who you are.There,s no need to be embarrassed.

  18. Sven • August 8, 2014 @ 12:38 AM

    He is a good man, and of course all this stalking by fans that he allows since he too is forever hopeful of finding peace in a youthful sweetheart ,. Has not let him live normally, study normally, nor grow normally. at least he s may ch better than you bitter hearts of people seeking entertainment in the name of life, while this industry has no classic material that can be legally and politically be called exemplary.be t you all would care about him only if he grew taller!. What about the fact that he is softly sharing his friendship with all the world’s fans as well as media along with keeping a good brotherly approach to all people.even his parents cannot speak to him and you all have the privilege to discuss over his personal bodily characteristics.I promise you all he will once upon a time prove to be the best in strength as well as might .coz he does not show off, you think he is not proper. If he wishes to show off his beauty, my heart would break. But you all sure will be very entertained. Cheap people.just watch movies.you pay them through that. You need not ensure that they are personally your acquaintances.huh!
