Have you ever noticed that some actors actually have to lean to take pictures with others? I mean, they’re so big that more often than not, the cameraman needs to work his magic to get them all in the same frame.

Some actors have made a living out of using their height for their advantage. Either by being at the center of thousands of jokes or because they add plenty of muscle to play tough guys in action movies.

But, even if you know some Hollywood men are quite tall, I can guarantee that you didn’t know they were that tall. In fact, some of them could have even played professional basketball. Today, we’re going to let you know about the top 25 tallest men in Hollywood:

25. Michael Richards - 6'3''
