They have the looks and body that makes many sweat but still the sassy sirens are not satisfied. Know why? That's because most successful actresses are height maniacs. No kidding! Check out what some of them have to say.

While there are those who are gifted with a height one 'looks upto', other women in the HiFI (Hindi film industry)are way too conscious about their physical features. Many of them believe that their short height sometimes disturbs their mental peace. In fact, they also admit that lacking tall height is the only physical feature they dislike about themselves.

Says Minisha Lamba, "This is one feature which I love to have. I am short and that's why take all care to wear clothes that somehow make me look tall. A good height enhances your personality."

Temptress Preity Zinta says, "Sometimes I wish that I should have been taller than what I am. In fact when I was in my 16s and 17s, I desperately wanted to have a good height. Though now I have come to terms with my appearance yet I feel that being tall is must for a good personality."

Asked about the height of actors in the Bollywood she says, "That's why sometimes I feel that had I been taller than what I am, at least most of the actors would have felt awkward working with me because on an average we have actors of medium heights in the film industry."

Priyanka Chopra, on the other hand, is on a lookout for a man who is typical tall and handsome guy. "My would-be husband must be tall. I will not marry a person who is not tall and handsome. When I was growing up, I had it in mind and since then and I have always dreamt of a man who is tall with various other physical and social qualities," states Priyanka.
