I’ve been short all my life — I think I stopped growing at, like, 12 or something, and depending on the day, I will tell you I’m 5’2″ or 5 feet. I really think i’m probably just 5 feet tall, but I lied about it for so long that I’m not sure what the truth is. When you are short, people will readily call you cute, but not pretty or beautiful. When you’re short, it feels harder to be taken seriously. And when you’re short, absolutely nothing ever fits without getting major tailoring.
I wanted to be taller for so long — for sooooo long — until one day I didn’t. Until I realized that there are actually a lot of advantages to being short. Like, sure, you’re always cute, but then again, you’re always considered cute. And there’s never really a dude who’s off-limits because of his height. And you can still shop at Gap Kids if you want.

And yet, she makes it look so easy. In Scarlett/Black Widow’s honor, here are 10 other kick ass female film and TV characters and the women who played them. Keep reading »
