Famous Men With Big Ears. After writing about Neil Patrick Harris’ surgery to pin back his ear, we decided to come up with a list of celebrities who, like the divine NPH, are blessed (or cursed) with big ears. So let’s begin our list of Ten Famous Men With Big Ears.
Daniel Craig: Did you know that he is self-conscious about the size of his ears?
In an interview with Time Out London, he talked about the craft of acting… and then he kinda mentioned something about his ears. Read: “Me and my very close friend call it “modelling”. I don’t find myself particularly good at it. But you find yourself having to model sometimes in movies. It’s kind of that…If you’re too aware of yourself I think it goes wrong, I really do. As long as my ears don’t stick out too much, I’m happy. The greatest asset to an actor is their ego, but it’s also their greatest enemy.”
President Barack Obama: During the launch of stopbullying.gov, President Obama revealed that he was bullied as a kid because of his name and the size of his ears.
Here’s what the President said: “I have to say that with big ears and the name that I have, I wasn’t immune. I didn’t emerge unscathed. If there’s one goal of this conference, it’s to dispel the myth that bullying is just a harmless rite of passage or an inevitable part of growing up.
Bullying can have destructive consequences for our young people. As adults, we can lose sight of how hard it can be sometimes to be a kid. It’s easy for us to forget what it’s like to be teased or bullied, but it’s also easy to forget the natural compassion and the sense of decency that our children display each and every day when they’re given a chance.”

Ross Perot: During his failed presidential runs, people used to make fun of Ross Perot because of a) his big ears and/or b) his “too out there” ideas.
You can laugh all you want and point at his ears but the guy is super-rich and is worth $3.5 billion according to Forbes Magazine.
Channing Tatum: One of the hottest guys of Hollywood has a pair of big ears but not a lot of people notice because they are blinded by his gorgeous face.
