Turns out the "most attractive guy in the world" (Quote from my girlfriend Sad ) has some pretty short arms and some pretty long legs.  Picture on the left is him at 184-5cm +3cm on shoe, so total height = 187cm.  Picture on the right has him with a total height of 175cm - So 172cm with 3 cm shoes.  Seeing as though I'm 5'9", I just imagine he's barefoot on the picture on the right.  As you can see, at 5'9" his legs are a bit on the short side - he has the torso of a 5'10" - 5'11" person in reality.  I imagine is sitting height is roughly 94/95/96 cm.  However, from the looks of it, I have similar arm length than him..probably longer  Shocked

Personally, I think he looks a bit too long-legged in reality.  He should really wear flats to create a more balanced look.

Very interesting. Great post. I wonder if he just has naturally long legs or if he was an LL patient. Tongue

I just can not see anything wrong with any picture what so ever.

You can get away with more when you're more muscular.

Only people who spend too much time on leg lengthening forums would think anything was wrong with Henry Cavill. He has naturally long legs and naturally short arms. So do a lot of people. Some people have naturally long arms and naturally short legs. Which one would would you prefer to be if you had a choice?

It's interesting to see these photos of Henry Cavill because he and I have a very similar build. I'm sure his torso is longer than mine, but only someone on this site would notice.

Yes, muscularity and torso width plays a huge role.  I think it's obvious in this picture, Where I have made him skinnier, that he doesn't carry the height off as well.

To me, his head and hands look bigger, and his arms longer, in his "tall" pics. I've noticed the same apparent difference when looking at the before and after pics of past LL patients. It's amazing how the subconscious mind can see a tall person with the head and extremities of a shorter person and perceive him as having all the features of a tall person, essentially warping reality.

I actually took a psychology course that explained this phenomena (although I forgot the scientific name for it lol). Basically, our minds don't like it when things don't match up, visually, so it alters our perception of the mismatched things to make them appear to match up. This is why many other optical illusions work.

Another interesting photo of him, in which it appears that the girl besides him, who is shorter, has longer arms and hands approximately the same size as his.

I had many people telling me I kinda look like him, but I'm the exact opposite: long torso and long arms but my legs are disproportionately short as my height is only 174cm.   Embarrassed

Thankfully I'm seeing Betz in September this year.  Cool

On second thought... I don't think he has long legs really at all.  I think it's his arms - which are quite hilariously short - which are the problem.  He's got particulary small hands too.  Strange...his only flaw I guess  Angry

I'll bet that 99% of the world population would not think that he had long legs or short arms. Only proportions obsessed leg lengthening site devotees obsess about such things. We scrutinize those things on people. The rest of the world does not.

Well, my girlfriend was the one who pointed out his short arms.  Pretty sure she isn't a "proportions obsessed leg lengthening site devotee".

the guy is doing really well in life with his disproportion.

Yes we all know that women LOVE big long arms AND this guy does not have them.

Proportion nazis say he has long legs relative to his torso. Studies have also shown that a preferred attribute is a longer torso  for males and not what this guy is.

According to proportion Nazis this guy should not be as succesful as he his RIGHT!!

Does it take a rocket scientist to figure that proportions are over rated in LL forums  ha aha ha ha aha haa.

Thats just how i look. Long legs, short arms. Lol

I think he did 3-4 cm on his femurs and tibias. He looks about 10 cm taller than his arm span.
