Fine Things Come In Small Packages: 9 Short Men Who Could Definitely Get It

November 6, 2012  |  
1 of 10

Let’s admit it ladies. While we love our tall, handsome men, short brothers can be fine, too. A suave man with a great personality, a gorgeous smile and smoldering eyes doesn’t have to be six-foot-something. In this case, size doesn’t matter. Check out our list of short and fine brothers and let us know what you think.



He may be married to our girl Tiny, but that doesn’t stop us from looking. T.I.’s swagger, sense of humor and hustle makes us forget that he’s 5’9,” or shorter, because he really doesn’t even look THAT tall.


Big Sean

The 5′ 8″ rapper is definitely easy on the eyes. He dresses very sharp, is awesome as a lyricist and is just plain ‘ol ca-ute. I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t love those lips? Boing!



A fine chocolate drop at 5′ 8″, Ne-Yo’s bedroom eyes and smooth voice are enough to make any woman melt. And once again, you can’t help but like a guy with some great lips who can write a beautiful song for you. Score!



Kevin Hart

He may only be 5′ 2″, but America’s new favorite funny man is a winner with the ladies. He’s got some beautiful skin (maybe that’s why his rap moniker is “Chocolate Drop,”), a bright smile and of course, a dope sense of humor that keeps everyone laughing to the point of tears. Kevin has got the charm to keep a lady (including a much taller one) on his arm.


Columbus Short

The smooth, suave Columbus Short heats up our Thursday nights on the runaway hit TV show, Scandal. We first fell for the fella when he danced his way into our living rooms in Stomp The Yard, and we’ve stayed down because his body is right and his personality is tight! Plus, he’s proving to be a big name in Hollywood with his acting chops because he stays working. Not bad for a guy who’s only 5′ 10.”


Larenz Tate

We’ve been loving Larenz Tate for a long time now. He may be only 5′ 7″, but his million-dollar smile and dimples make you forget all about that. Plus, he had us after Love Jones and a sistah can’t let go of her crush now!


Romany Malco

The Think Like A Man star is 5′ 8″ and all sexiness with his chocolate self. I know you guys peeped out how fabulous his body was in the movie, and the man could sing! He could woo us like he did Meagan Good in the movie anytime.

Nate Parker

Nate Parker is chiseled perfection. Those eyes, that smile, and those LIPS have us swooning every time he hits the screen. The 5’9″ actor is destined to become a big star as he’s had many much talked about performances in the past year. Get to know him and love him!



Surprise right!? Ray-J has made headlines over the years for many different things, but we can’t deny that the 5′ 7″ star is fine. If we didn’t know him as Brandy’s little home video tape making brother, we probably would give him the eye on these streets.

    I think you’ve only estimated how tall some of these guys are. Most men in Hollyweird are really short. 5’8″ is considered tall. I’ve seen some of the male stars out and about when visiting the area and their stature is a big disappointment. You don’t even recognize them!

  • Rebecca

    I agree with most of the posters here. Ne-Yo is a No-No. I would have added Usher in his place I read somewhere that he is 5’8 or under. He is fine as hell and can get it any day from me. I’m surprise to find out that Kevin Hart is only 5’2. I knew he was short but not that short.

  • Chevonne22

    Ne-Yo can’t get a thang from me, except a song download or two! And that’s only if he keeps a hat on his head.

  • eestoomuch

    Lol! @ Shirl…but seriously, while none of them are finer than froghair, i will give all of them except Ray J and Kevin Hart a pass, although i did hear tell that short men be packin’ and not lackin’.

    • eestoomuch

      i meant give all of them a pass….

      • eestoomuch

        oowee i need my bifocals

  • IAJS

    Ne-Yo? I’m good on that

  • Pam

    I was with you until I saw Ray J…..Come on now!!!

    OAN: Help me Father with Columbus Short and Nate Parker!!!! All day and tomorrow too could they get it. And how could you forget Laz Alonso?!?!??!?! I know his bio may say he is 6ft, but if Lala is his height with heels on, I beg to differ.

  • Guest

    Nate Parker wouldn’t have none of us. Wife is White.smh

  • *Looks around checking for boyfriend* Big Sean fine as hell!!

  • greentea516

    Big Sean is my favorite, you can tell he’s short in person though. Columbus is at average height for guys. Honorable mentions: Bow Wow, Terrance J, and Tahj Mowry

  • Angela Ingram

    It makes me glad that I am 5’1″.

    • Nenah

      I’m 5’5 and always wished I was shorter. As long as he’s a little taller than you with heels on its good.

  • Roxanne

    Ermmmmmmmmmm wears Omarion and Bow wow they small and F-I-N-E as hell!!!!!! xxxxx

  • Nate Parker all day long!! The rest….ease on down the road!

  • Ms. Bee

    Where’s Neyo’s boyfriend?


    I hope Larenz Tate and Nate Parker are at my house when I get home. *prays*

  • IllyPhilly

    Nooooooooope. I likes ’em at least 6’0, however Columbus could get the bitness!!!

  • afroveda

    Seeing as how 5’10” is not short, Columbus shouldn’t be on the list. We all have different tastes but I’d have to give any and all of my friends the side eye if they found Ne-yo or Ray J to be attractive. The rest have a thumbs up.

  • Wow

    Lorenz, Nate, and TI, yes all day long, the others. naaaaaaah. Wow Kevin Hart is 5’2….I knew he was short but dang.

    • Na Na

      He could probably get disability for that.

  • Lol having recently met Big Sean… hes NOT 5’8. Hes a cutie, but not that tall at all.

  • Guest

    Everything was fine until you said Ne-Yo. Brushed it off as an acquired taste until you followed up my husband (Nate Parker) with Ray J? Disappointing ending, but I can just click on the others. 🙂

  • Laine

    Wow… I’m not American, nor have I ever been in America, but I did not realize that at 5’6″ you are considered short over there!

    • Yes some of the heights struck me as not so short. 5’8 – 5’10 is not short to me…but then again I am 5’1 *hangs head and leaves the room*

    • Southside

      Truthfully, 5’8″ should not be considered short in the U.S. either. Only approximately 7% of men in the U.S. are “taller” than 6’0″.

  • Na Na

    I’m sorry but Ray-J would never get a second glance from lathered in baby oil and wrapped in 100 dollar bills.

    • Tell us how you really feel! LOL….

    • Tam


    • Nenah

      Sh*t, I’ve seen his d*ck! I’d hit!

  • Shirl

    Please remove Ray J from this list and add Lorenze Tate twice…thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    • sammi_lu

      yesss! and am I in the minority here..I hate Neyo’s lips and mouth uggghhh so platypus-like.

      • Nenah

        I’d put Neyo’s lips to work. And yes I mean exactly what you think. *Disclaimer: I’m 2 years celibate so forgive my pervy posts!

        • sammi_lu

          LOL!!!! lawdy lawd stay strong sister!

  • sammi_lu

    awww Columbus Short doesn’t deserve to be on this list if he is 5’10, thats median height for American males.

    • Guest

      Columbus Short would be approved even if he was 4’10. That man is FIONE!

    • DrChocolate

      median height for American males is 5’6″
