[ # ] Who knew Napoleon was a tall American?
July 10th, 2023 under Joaquin Phoenix

I don’t know much about Napoleon. I know, thanks to Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, he was a short, dead dude, and he is from France.

However, in the upcoming movie, he will be played by Joaquin Phoenix, who is an American that stands at 5’8″ tall.

So riddle me this, Ridley Scott. Why did you cast a taller man with an American accent to play a French man with a complex over his height? You couldn’t find a shorter actor who could do a French accent?

It is Hollywood, and there are plenty of vertically challenged men who could’ve played the Emperor brilliantly.

I know. It is not about the man. It is about the beautiful scenery, the battles, and the sex. Am I the only one who doesn’t want to see Napoleon have sex? I never knew him to be a sexual icon like Henry VIII, who also suffered from a Napoleon complex between his legs.
