cinema is filled with people obsessed with their image
manlets are obsessed with their image bc they have been made fun of for it during all their life
playing in movies is the only opportunity for them to look manly
>This is how manlets see the world
1) Easier to film.
It's easier to film smaller people and smaller objects.
2) Easier to manipulate the body.
If your actor needs to go from scrawny as fuck to muscular as fuck, it'll take a lot less time for a 5'9" guy to do it than a 6'2" guy.
3) Easier for action films.
In action films there's always "the big mook". A 6'4" guy will look a hell of a lot bigger when next to a manlet than when next to a 6'1" guy. Wire-fu and digital manipulations are also easier with a smaller actor.
4) Easier to cast female love interests for manlets.
In films, you want your female and male love interests to be close in height, since it makes kissing/love scenes much more easier to film. Filming a 6'3" guy kissing a 5'6" girl doesn't really look good.
Those are the main reasons
Especially for men, tall guys almost always have bird chests and long frail looking limbs, while for a shorter guy it's not too hard to get beefy. That's just not possible for most tall guys without massive amounts of steroids.
Almost all these leading men action stars are on the shorter side for this reason.
On the other side, tall actors look awkward and frail. Liam Neason is a good example.
It takes a genetic freak and loads of steroids to make tall guys like The Rock or that guy who's Thor look strong.
Came here to post this. Guess what. There are tall actors but for the longest time your height was a huge detriment to your ability to get roles. Sometimes sill is. That's just the nature of that industry. It's no different than being tall and black to play basketball
Its easy to tell a manlet what to do.
Manlets are naturally submissive and easy to control, like women.
No it's the complete opposite, average tall people look like freaks on camera
Liam Neason and Hemsworth both look like body builders when they're not particularly huge
Neason's ape like figure is extremely distracting in Schindler's list
A few reasons:
>They're easier to fit creatively into a frame
>They're generally more attractive than tall men since they work so hard on their physical appearance to compensate(IRL manlets are less attractive because everyone notices how short they are, but on camera height doesn't really matter)
>They can fit into a larger variety of outfits(no big and tall options needed)
You know what now that I think about it most tall/lanky people are fucking memes, most have low intelligence and no talent.
>There are tall actors but for the longest time your height was a huge detriment to your ability to get roles. Sometimes sill is. That's just the nature of that industry.
You do know that in the classic Hollywood era almost every male leading man was tall? Cary Grant, John Wayne, James Stewart, Gregory Peck etc. were all very tall, especially for their era (average height wasn't as high then as it is now). There were some famous shorter actors of course. Charlie Chaplin for example. Paul Muni was short as well and wore lifts to make him appear taller. James Dean was quite short as well as Marlon Brando.
But mostly leading men were tall, it wasn't really until the 70's that it became more prominent to have short men as leading men.
fucking normies can't tell the difference between fight club brad pitt mode and commando arnie mode
it's not really even a meme to us
it's just how we end postcards and stuff in finland. we've been doing it for literally like a hundred years, and it often carries a slight sense of :^) even in normie situations
if i wasn't such a lazy memesmith, i would start a trend of subtly photoshopping people to being slightly smaller and shorter. like, not enough to trigger the "ok this is a photoshop" but enough to make people look smaller than they are
it just seems disingenuous to call it an /int/ meme when it didn't start there
it's more of an ylilauta meme than anything
yea he looks like a bitch. is even wearing extra layers and looks like he could blow away in the wind. what a fag.
>this is what raging manlets actually believe
>says that "manlet" is a feminist divide & conquer meme
>be Tom Cruise
>wake up in the morning
>realise that whatever happens, you will always be taller than David Miscavige
It's like his own personal >you will never be anthony burch
Why are all the threads started with a question only a retard would think is funny, obviously started by the same monglet?
If you met this cunt in real life you would just punch his fucking mong face in.
>For the film Saskatchewan, director Raoul Walsh had a six-inch hole dug for co-star Hugh O'Brian to stand in, while using the excavated dirt to build a mound for Ladd to stand on, thereby overcoming the one-foot disparity in height.
Allan Ladd was 5'6" btw
> In his memoirs, actor/producer John Houseman wrote of Ladd: "Since he himself was extremely short, he had only one standard by which he judged his fellow players: their height"
kek, he would fit right in on 4chan
I believe manlets faces gets more development than their bodies, often making them more facially attractive than their taller kinfolk.
It's like Kit Harrington and Adam Driver. Kit is very small, but his face is a pleasing sight. Adam Driver is like the tall version of Kit, but his features are.. stretched, like butter over too much bread.
I feel somewhat lucky, being 187cm and being moderately good looking. Falling between the two camps is where the true perfect human is found.
Some information from "The Golden Age of Hollywood Fact Book"
>In the early years of Hollywood, the Great Depression meant many went hungry. Since smaller actors required less food to live, they could be hired for cheaper. Eventually many of the taller actors died of starvation.
>The cameraman has more flexibility because he can use macro lenses as well as normal lenses to film them
>Smaller actors are typicaly easier to intimidate in contract negotiations
Here's some more facts
>Small actors were also preferred because of the added ease in filming overseas. Smaller actors were easier to fit into cargo crates, and since the actors were of lower stature and significance, they rarely complained.
>The hobbits in Lord of the Rings were originally described by Tolkien as "prideful, tall and slender beings of immaculate beauty" However, due to budgetary limitations, Peter Jackson elected to cast the hobbits as a couple of small, dirty Brits and Elijah Woods, knowing that he could save at least $104.32 by shipping them to New Zealand in the cargo hold.
>dad was 6'2
>mom was 5'4
>genetics were a gamble and I lost
Better body proportions
Easier to fit into shot
Cheaper to clothe
Cheaper to feed
Having men the same size as women makes a better shot, always.
It's cheaper to make a short guy taller, than a tall guy short
They mix well with extras
6'4 in high school, thought Id be drowning in pussy but Im scrawny as fuck and people called me scarecrow and the surviving tower (this was post 9/11, not even mad it was pretty funny) but all my short friends had better luck with girls
>be 5'4" 185 lbs manlet
>pussy taller dudes decide to give you shit for being manlet
>use superior manlet strength to take pussy taller dudes down and make them your bitch
>taller pussy dudes now claim you have a manlet complex because you refuse to take their bullshit
>can never win
>the surviving tower
why are kids so mean and creative
>have a giant women/femdomination fetish
>most women I meet are my height or taller
it all worked out
>the surviving tower
Kids are always creative
This is the funniest picture i've seen all week.
Weird, I thought you said Dhalism, associating it with Dhali, this being one of my favourites and coincidently relevant
Not only does the female limit your height, as a male, but the bitch genes are also responsible for whether or not you'll be bald.
>tfw losing hair despite father and his father both still having all of their hair
>bit shorter than my dad and grandad
>taller than my brother and cousins
>got shit beard genetics in return
>laugh at this picture assuming he's 5'7 or something
>look up his height
>i'm exactly the same height as him
>it's like cheat codes t'bh
Bitches are even installing plastic in their ass to fake that too....
And yet beta faggots still want to put bitches on a pedestal.
>you will always be taller than David Miscavige
hey, me too!
How come everyone on 4chan is 6+ feet with 8 inch dicks, but are still utter losers? You probably all look like Merchant or Conan
I'm 6'2 with a 7 incher and am pretty handsome... I'm just a sperg who hates women and hates intimacy and making any effort to chat shite to people.
Still, at least I know the opportunity is there unlike most of these manlet fags.
Fair enough, I don't care about sex though. I get aroused by women but actually being around them and having to talk to them puts me off and a fap always does me.
I had a qt 18 year old infatuated with me, wanted me to spend the weekend at hers with just us too, but having to talk to her or do anything but fuck her made me ignore her and I'm still a virgin.
I just want a harem of girls who don't talk and only serve as a means of getting a good hard dicking by an iron man.
Mom is 5'4
Dad is 5'6
And people blame poor nutrition for my "shortness".. Mfw it was never in the cards
>mfw clooney has crushed more puss than every manletposter in this thread combined
I can relieve this site. You're all making fin of a millioner sex symbol because he's one inch short to the arbitrary 6' cutoff while you are probably jerking off to Chinese cartoons. I pitty all of you.
Oh and if your height is the only thing you can brag about you are comically pathetic. That means you most likely
>have an ugly face
>have a shit physique
>earn shit money
>have a little toddler dick
B-but muh height! Please, if You make fun of people for things they can't change then You are a true faggot and most likely someone who's not fun to be around.
>but all my short friends had better luck with girls
>all of my family is <5'6 so I'm doing preddy good tbhfam
>be an actor
>its a kissing scene
>you walk up to beautiful actress
>about to kiss
>"can we get the stool for anon here?"
thank god i will never know that humiliating feeling
Dad is 6 feet
Mom is 5'5
I'm 5'9.. I blame playing tennis 5 hours a day during my prime growth years and not eating enough. I know I won't ever be alpha but I don't feel that short most of the time. Any shorter I would get nervous though
>tfw only 8"
I just wish I had a monster, I know I should be grateful but I can't stop wishing for a third leg
Most likely not handsome and deformed.
All people overestimate their own looks and intellect, especially in their hormonal years.
There's a reason you're here with all the other retards and fuck-ups.
