Empire Every Day 032

One of the oldest tricks in the book, the ol’ box that makes you look taller. A favorite of Hollywood’s favorite midget, Tom Cruise.

032: Carrie Fisher stood on a box for many of her scenes with Harrison Ford in order to make up for the height difference, and have her appear in the frame with him. Carrie Fisher (5’1″) was almost a foot shorter than Harrison Ford (6′).

I had no idea Carrie Fisher was that short, and I had even less of an idea about Harrison Ford’s height. You’re telling me this whole time Han Solo is running around being 6 foot tall? That’s wild. They make it look so natural on the screen, the only character that stands out in height is Chewbacca but he is supposed to be noticeably taller than anyone else.
