Gary Coleman, 4′ 8″

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?

    Poor Gary. Maybe the press need to listen to the lyrics from the “Different Strokes” theme tune and pay heed!
    “Now the world don’t move to the beat of just one drum, what might be right for you, may not be right for some,…..different strokes”
    There is of course the vertically challanged Mr Tom Cruise, but standing on an orange crate for most of his scenes doesn’t seem to have affected his acting career at all although he must tire of the relentless commentry of high much taller Katie Holmes is!
