Dawson's Height Complex
Actress Rosario Dawson had such anxieties about her shortness she used to wear platform sports shoes to hide her true height.
Although she's not short at 5 feet 7 inches (1.7 metres), Dawson's mother was six feet tall (1.82 metres).
She says, "Sometimes I'm surprised at how small I am. I had a huge complex about it - I used to wear platform sneakers."
