Popcrunch.com is taking a look at the well known midget celebrities of our time who have chosen girlfriends almost twice their height!
The one, the only, it’s Mini-Me. At 2ft 8in Verne Troyer is one of the smallest people in the world. At 25 years of age he stood in for a 9-month-old baby in the 1994 film Baby’s Day Out. Nevertheless, the ladies have flocked after him.
Jason “Wee Man” Acuna can be seen throughout the Jackass franchise, quite simply wrecking stuff up. The pro skater also put his smaller stature to (dubiously) good use with stunts such as dressing as an Oompa-Loompa and kicking himself in the head. As a true badass, it’s perhaps not surprising that Acuna has been photographed with a number of lovely lady friends over the years.
You might remember Peter Dinklage from the film Elf, in which he beat up Will Ferrell’s character after he repeatedly called him a Christmas elf — or you might have seen him being tied up and accidentally murdered, twice over, in Death at a Funeral, 2007 and 2010. We imagine he’s not quite so angry in real life – here with his wife, theater director Erica Schmidt.
The late, great Gary Coleman was one the most famous little people of all time — without technically being a midget. Truly the man lived a chaotic life: there was the $3.8m lawsuit against his parents, the car accidents and the assault. Then there was his 2007 marriage to Shannon Price, only months after he met her on the set of Church Ball, where she was working as an extra. They divorced in August 2008 (following an appearance on TV show Divorces Court) but were said to have lived together until his death. Little man; lot o’ drama.
