Poor old Gary Coleman, 4′ 8″ has been in trouble again. Reports came in that he had been arrsted following an episode of alleged domestic violence but it turns out he was detained in relation to a previous incident.
Now, I don’t know Gary and it appears ever since he was in Different Strokes he’s been in and out of trouble. But why do the tabloids see fit to constantly mention his stature in every report? I think I’d be a bit pissed off if any time I was on TV or in the papers someone mentioned my height or the fact that I was a ‘former child star’ or whatever… what does it matter?
Anyway, which other stars have had their lives blighted by a previous career or their size or age? One that springs to mind is former weather girl Ulrika Jonsson. Any more?
