Hoskins' Shock To Be Short
British actor BOB HOSKINS was convinced he was normal height, until he starred alongside statuesque singer CHER in hit movie MERMAIDS.
There was such a difference between the pair - who played lovers in the 1990 film - the crew organised a box for Hoskins to stand on during kissing scenes.
He says, "I said, 'What are you talking about? I can kiss her.'
"They says, 'Yeah, but Bob you are quite a short fella.'"
