Does no one know his real name?

Verne -- meh

I knew he had a drinking problem, but it seems that he has taken charge by going to re-hab.

Good for him.. BTW, from that pic SHE IS TOTALLY HOT. :D
wow.

i know his real name is verne troyer, but not a lot of people know his real name :p
besides it wouldn't sound as good if it said "verne troyer to wed his 6'2" girlfriend" because half the people reading it wouldn't really have a clue as to who verne troyer is.

This isn't going to last. She's already ditched him once for someone taller according to the article. She's definitely hot though... what am I doing wrong?

Yeah I guess, maybe, you are right.

Wow, talk about opposites. Sounds like its more publicity than anything else.

Any bets as to how long it lasts? Weirdness....:rolleyes:

Hmmm, I think you are doing the not being internationally recognized, not starring in 2 (or was it 3) major motion pictures, and not fairly wealthy wrong. Just change those three things and you have got it. :p

i'm not too optimistic about this marriage...hope i'm wrong.

i dated a girl who was 6' 2" ( and a 1/2"...) for quite a few years...i'm 6' tall so it wasn't too weird. but when she'd wear heels that made her 6' 6"...now that was kinda strange.

of course when she was that tall it was quite nice to hug her if you get my drift...;)

She went back to him because of Mini-Me's money. Plain and simple.

I think that is a little mean to put is gently.

Are you anti-midget or something?

You can tell them apart from babies in 1 sec flat.

You see, I don't think it's that simple. I think she wants to get into movies and make her own money and he's her ticket:D

Is he rich? What has he done besides the Austin Powers films?

yeah - let's be nice... maybe he's a mac user that frequents the boards. ;)

I don't know - I don't expect he's all that rich...

Now THAT'S a rumor worth mulling! After all, he IS in Apple commercials...and Mr. Troyer was quite good in a Boston Public episode where his love interest was, well...talk about opposites attracting!

(oh, btw, the polite term in use today for Dwarfism is "Little Person". My friend Shelby is a Little Person...she teaches Kindergarten...you can IMAGINE how much the kids love her!)

He get's a ton of attention everywhere he goes and...has MUCH more potential to get her the attention she craves than some common no fame male stripper.

She sowed her oats and realized it wasn't the best move for her career.

Sadly, she's probably the hottest chick willing to cross the line with him, and he's so smitten that he doesn't have the strength to kick her to the curb.

well someone did mention media stunts the other day...I believe it was D...

anyway...this screams it to me...just an opinion...

reminds me of when Anna Nicole Smith married the walking skeleton with billions of dollars...

maybe it's just me...but I don't trust most people's motives for doing things...

Mr. Anderson

It is sort of sad, actually. I married a 6' 1.5" woman, being 6' 2" myself works out nicely ;)

I wish them happiness, but given the articles info it seems that there are already issues. Maybe if there was some more info on how they met, etc.

It will make for a very interesting Biography in a few years. Anyone ever watch that show? They do some really good research into the subjects.

I wish verne all the best. I pray that this marriage will bring long lasting happiness for both of them. We should rejoyce in a fellow Mac fans happiness. Hopefully this will also keep him away from alcohol!

Hope he signed on for some of the back end profits and not just a flat salary.

BTW, saw this story on Daily Show with John Stewart last night. They had a picture of him and her standing next to each other. He litterally came up to just past her knee.

I remember seeing a playboy where they had him and like 7 different girls
The funny part of the layout was that most of their parts that eye mentions 0http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=32920) are bigger than his head. I found it quite comical actually

he might have been one of the gringotss that would make the most sense to me...he was probably the one that was the teacher but you didn't recognize him with the accent or the makeup

I think this wedding will last as long as he is able to keep off the alcohol.

In tonight's monologue, Jay Leno asked if Verne bothered to go down on one knee to propose to Genevieve.

It didn't last. link (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/allnews/content_objectid=13282499_method=full_siteid=50143_headline=-MINI-ME-AND-FIANCEE-SPLIT-name_page.html)After a tempestuous three-year relationship, the unlikely pair have split. But even though the rest of the world never took it seriously, the 29-year-old model says she can't face life without Verne, 34.

Speaking about their affair for the first time, Genevieve says the pressures were no different from those in any other high-profile relationship.

"Girls would come and just throw themselves at Verne," she says. "I would get pushed out of the way.

"Because he is such a gentle and sweet person, Verne didn't understand that a line that has to be drawn between being passive about that and saying something.

...

When news of their tentative plans reached the media, the actor's friends say he panicked. Now he is taking a "break". Genevieve admits: "We were both overwhelmed by the amount of attention the engagement got. All the pressure made him retreat.

At least she dumped him for the stripper instead of keeping him and having sex with the stripper on the side.

I definitely agree with the pre-nup sentiment though.

That is sad news to hear. I can't even imagine the pressure that they must have been under. It's probably for the best, much better that they decide to cool it prior to marriage! :(

look, whatever it is, his girlfriend is pretty hot...I would say he's not doing bad for himself.

I don't know whether it will last, but he'll be a happy man as long as it does. :D :D

oh: just finished reading the thread...that's my punishment for not reading the thread before I post...Too bad this didn't work out.
