Yes, I’ve heard about directors making extras walk in ditches so their star looks taller. I’ve heard about platform shoes for men and the best angles for filming short people.
But I thought it was just one part truth to 10 parts legend, because who really gives that much of a shit about their height. Also, I guess I just figured all Hollywood actors were at or around six foot anyway.
If this is accurate, then I have been duped by movie makers most of my movie-watching life.
