From Josh Hutcherson To Martin Scorsese: Dustin Hoffman Tops The List Of Hollywood’s Most Successful Short Kings


06 February 2024

Despite the age-old rule that a person’s height can affect their career success, it’s clear that Hollywood’s most talented don’t receive this same treatment. We saw Ke Huy Quan famously win the Best Supporting Actor award at last year’s Academy Awards for his performance in ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ despite being only 1.63m (5’3 inches) tall.  But which other Hollywood ‘short kings’ are also successful?

With the 96th Academy Awards due to air on March 10th, a study was conducted by analysing over 200 Hollywood actors/directors, looking at their height, computer vision algorithms, estimated net worth and box office data to uncover the luckiest ‘short kings’ in Hollywood.

Check out this video pitch to find out more.

 

 

Highlights from the research:

  • Dustin Hoffman is the luckiest short king, scoring 9.32 out of 10
  • Elijah Wood is second and is also the most attractive, with a Golden Ratio score of 8.79/10
  • Martin Scorsese is the shortest in the top 10 but has the highest net worth and average film reviews in the top 10

Dustin Hoffman is Hollywood’s luckiest short king

The study reveals that Dustin Hoffman is the luckiest short king, scoring 9.32 out of 10. Standing at 166cm (5 feet 4 inches), Hoffman is the tallest out of the top 10 celebrities, tying with Jason Schwartzman. Hoffman is known for his unforgettable roles as Raymond Babbitt in Rain Man and Michael Dorsey in Tootsie, two movies whose success has generated an estimated sum of $5.8 billion at the box office and earned Hoffman an estimated net worth of $110 million. According to the Golden Ratio, Hoffman is also one of the best-looking short kings, scoring 8.43/10.  

According to science, Elijah Wood is the sexiest short king

In second place is Elijah Wood, scoring 9.09 out of 10. Best known for his role as Hobbit ‘Frodo’ in the Lord of the Rings movie franchise, Wood also starred in 2004’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, movies which brought in $5.89 billion at the box office and earned Wood his $20 million net worth. At 165cm (5 feet 5 inches) tall, he ties with Josh Hutcherson and Nathan Lane in the top 10, however, Wood is the best looking according to science, with a golden ratio score of 8.79 out of 10.

Josh Hutcherson is the second sexiest according to science

Josh Hutcherson is the third luckiest short king, scoring 8.42 out of 10. Hutcherson is 165cm (5 feet 5 inches) tall and has an estimated $20 million net worth from 43 roles such as heartthrob Peeta Mellark in the Hunger Games movie franchise and Markl from 2004’s Howl’s Moving Castle, two of which have generated an estimated $4.6 billion at the box office. When it comes to his looks, Hutcherson fares extremely well according to science, with a golden ratio score of 8.58 out of 10, the second-highest score in the top 10, just 0.21 points lower than Wood (8.79).

Martin Scorsese is the shortest in the top 10, but has the highest net worth and average film reviews

In joint sixth place with Daniel Radcliffe and scoring 8.07 out of 10 is Martin Scorsese. This legendary Hollywood filmmaker, best known for his directorial roles in 1976’s Taxi Driver and 1990’s GoodFella’s is the shortest man in the top 10 but has the highest net worth ($200 Million) and average film review score (6.8/10). Scorsese is nominated for ‘Best Director’ at this year’s Academy Awards for Killers of the Flower Moon, his 10th Best Director nomination.

Jacob Batalon makes the top 10

Trailing at the bottom of the top 10, scoring 7.96 out of 10 is Jacob Batalon. At 161cm (5 feet 2 inches) tall, he is known internationally for his role as Ned Leeds in the hugely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise which unsurprisingly generated an estimated $8.7 billion at the box office and earned him a handsome $6 million net worth. While successful financially, Batalon also fares well with his looks, scoring 7.56 out of 10, the ninth-highest score in the top 10, beating Martin Scorsese (7.20/10).

Methodology:

  1. MinimumDepositCasinos conducted a study to identify the "short kings" of Hollywood, using a computer vision algorithm to assess facial features' proximity to the geometric golden ratio.
  2. Actors shorter than or equal to 167cm were selected from Celeb Heights.
  3. Photos meeting specific criteria were used to minimise variability factors like expression and lighting in the analysis.
  4. Facial landmarks were identified, and their proximity to the golden ratio was calculated and expressed as a percentage.
  5. The method has limitations due to inherent model entropy.
  6. Film review scores from IMDb and worldwide box office grossings from The Numbers were also considered.
  7. Net worth data was sourced from Idol Net Worth and Celebrity Net Worth.
  8. The final ranking of actors was based on an average percent rank combining net worth, film grossings, review scores, and golden ratio score, acknowledging that some data are estimates.
  9. Data was obtained on 22 January 2024 and is correct as of then.
