Early life of Genevieve Gallen

Genevieve Gallen was born on December 20, 1972 in Detroit, Michigan, USA . She is currently 47 years old and her sun sign is Sagittarius. Genevieve has American citizenship, but her ethnicity is white. She grew up with a love of music and took up classical piano and jazz in an effort to expand her interest in music.

She graduated from Mensa School of Geniuses. After that, she headed to the Center for Creative Studies at the College of Art and Design where she received a degree in Graphic Design and Fashion Illustration.

Due to her interests, she attended the San Francisco Yoga Institute where she became certified as a yoga instructor, excelling in subjects such as Pranamaya, Iyengar Yoga, Physiology and Anatomy.

Is Genevieve Gallen married?

Gallen was once married on January 22, 2004 to Verne Troyer . Their wedding took place in the Beverly Hills Courthouse . But she filed for annulment the next day. Likewise, her husband told her that they were not going to get married and she told several false stories for her own financial gain. She alleged that her husband was physically abusive to her.

They later divorced each other that same year. Currently, Genevieve is single and there is no news about her affairs or relationships.

Body Measurement (Height and Weight)

Gallen is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 60 kg . Likewise, her body measurements are 34-29-36 inches.

HER HUSBAND: Verne Troyer

Verne Troyer is considered one of the shortest men in the world - his height was only 81 cm and his weight was 25 kg. At the same time, the dwarf managed to reach unprecedented career heights in cinema. Unlike the films in which Troyer starred, his biography cannot be called a comedy: the actor suffered from alcohol addiction and ultimately voluntarily died.

Vern Jay Troyer was born on January 1, 1969 in Sturgis, Michigan, into a typical blue-collar family - Susan, a weaver, and Reuben, a repairman. Until the age of 9, they raised their son as an Amish; followers of this religious movement lead a simple life and refuse modern technologies.

The Troyer family has lived in the United States since the 1700s, but all its members are German and Swiss. The actor has the same origin.

Vern grew up with his brother Davon and sister Deborah. He once noted in an interview that my parents “never treated me differently because of my height. I chopped wood and looked after cows and pigs just like normal-sized people.” Troyer's short stature is a consequence of hypoplasia. With this disease, not only bones stop growing, but also hair.

In 1987, the actor graduated from Centerville High School. At the prom, Vern and his chosen one were named king and queen of the evening. In memory of the star student, a memorial plaque was installed on the school building in 2003.

Despite his hypoplasia, Verne Troyer lived large, threw the loudest parties in Los Angeles and surrounded himself with leggy blondes who were twice his heigHt


Verne Troyer's film career began thanks to the Little People of America association, which was looking for a stunt double for baby Bink for the film Baby Walking or Gangster Crawl (1994). After a confident start, the dwarf was offered to become a stuntman in several more projects. He starred in the comedies Dunston Enters (1996), Men in Black (1997) and My Giant (1998).

Verne Troyer's most famous role is Mini-Me in the Austin Powers comedies. Mike Myers, the leading actor, was so impressed by the little actor's talent that he insisted on expanding his screen time. As a result, in the part “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” (1999), Mini-Me became almost a key character, and the scene of his death disappeared from the script.

Verne Troyer returned to the role of Mini-Me in Austin Powers: Goldmember (2002), and then reunited with Mike Myers on the set of the comedy Sex Guru (2008).

Troyer's filmography also included such films as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001), where the actor played the role of the goblin Griphook, and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009).

Among other things, Verne Troyer had an amazing sense of humor, so he performed several times as a stand-up comedian. The main topic of jokes was, of course, one’s own growth.
