BOX OFFICE ROYALTY:  TOP FIVE HIGHEST EARNING PETITE ACTRESSES

5'3" JENNIFER ANISTON

5'4" JENNIFER ANISTON

#1 JENNIFER ANISTON

5’4″ Aniston: The Friends Star told Rolling Stone magazine in 1999 that ‘I’m 110, I’ve been 130, and I’m five feet five.’  There was some silly rumor a while ago that Jennifer went on a “special exercise program” and gained 2 inches in height…W’ed all love to know where that rumor originated!  She’s also said in an interview she’s ‘5’4″ and 3/4′.

Jennifer Aniston, at the age of 40, earned $25 million, buoyed by last year’s hit “Marley & Me,” which earned $244 million at the worldwide box office. The actress also earned big paychecks pitching Glaceau’s Smart Water. Current Projects: “Brand New Day” with Aaron Eckhart (Sept. 2009 release); “The Baster,” with Jason Bateman.

5'2" SARAH JESSICA PARKER

#2 Sarah Jessica Parker

Actress from Sex and the City harps on about being ‘short’ and needing heels at 5’4″… but she isn’t really 5’4″.  Sarah’s height is actually 5’2″, on a good day!

Sarah Jessica Parker, at the age of 44, earned $23 million. Parker cashed in with the smash hit Sex and the City movie, which brought in $415 million at the box office worldwide!  Now a second movie is in the works and should hit theaters next year.  Current Project: “Did You Hear About the Morgans?” Slated release date December 18, 2009.

5'1"REESE WIHTERSPOON

#3 Reese Witherspoon

Actress from Legally Blond quotes on Canoe as saying “I’m really tough in my mind. I’m only 5’2″ but I think I’m big. And tough,” also “I’m 5’2″ and I weigh 93 pounds.” Clearly, Witherspoon is a mere 5’1″ and unable to admit it!

Reese Witherspoon, at age 33, earned $15 million.  It’s been a while since Witherspoon had a home run like Legally Blonde, but the actress had two solid hits last year with Four Christmases and Monsters vs. Aliens.  Even if her movies don’t do well, which is unlikely, Witherspoon makes good money as an Avon “ambassador.”  Current Project: Untitled “James L. Brooks Project,” slated release date for December 2009.

Her schedule also remains active with the horror flick “Our Family Trouble,” produced by her own Type A Films.  The hardworking actress and producer recently took a hit, though, with the flop of New Line’s “Rendition,” which received more action from its behind-the-scenes romance rumors than at the box office.

5'4" DREW BARRYMORE

#4 Drew Barrymore

5’2″ Barrymore on ET, Charlie’s Angels star said to Vogue when she was 18 that ‘I’m five four! I’m a pygmy’ and has said that several times, but 5’4″ is no pygmy! Although there is a quote where she is ‘overheard’ saying ‘I’m 5ft 2’…in 2004 also said ‘To dance confidently in a pair of fringed panties when you’re 5ft 4ins with cellulite is a great thing’

Drew Barrymore, at the age of 34, earned $12 million.  The actress continues to prove herself to be a double threat, producing and starring in hit romantic comedies.  February’s He’s Just Not That Into You earned a surprising $165     million at the box office. Next, Barrymore’s directorial debut, Whip It! Release date Oct. 9 2009.

Barrymore returned to the romantic-comedy genre in 2008 with two Warner Bros. outings after audiences failed to catch “Fever Pitch” in 2005.  She flexed her vocal cords alongside Hugh Grant in Warner Bros.’2007 “Music and Lyrics.”  Maybe not a runaway hit, but genuinely funny and entertaining.

5'1" RENEE ZELLWEGER

#5 Renee Zellweger

There is one article that reported a German couple were commenting about her height and appearance and Renee retorted back in German, “No, I’m not. I’m 5 foot 3 inches and always dress this way in the morning.”  Other fans commenting on a popular internet forum have mentioned, “I met her and I was definitely looking down. I’m 5’6″ and she was wearing heels. She was a tiny, doll-like person.” Likely Zellweger is 5’1″ and another actress refusing to disclose her true height.

Renee Zellweger, at age 40, earned $10 million.  Zellweger hasn’t starred in a hit movie since 2003’s Cold Mountain, for which she earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar.  Her most recent movies–New In Town,Appaloosa and Leatherheads–were bona fide flops. Current Project:”My Own Love Song,” release date August 21, 2009.

Paydays of $15 million apiece for 2004’s “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason” and 2005’s “Cinderella Man,” success with Paramount/DreamWorks Animation’s “Bee Movie” ignited some serious buzz around Zellweger.  In 2008 she co-starred alongside George Clooney in Universal’s football-centric romantic comedy “Leatherheads.”
