The Smallest Woman in the World…

Jyoti Kishanji Amge is an Indian actress, known as the world’s shortest woman according to the Guinness Book of World Records. After Amge’s 18th birthday, on December 16, 2011, she was officially declared the world’s shortest woman by Guinness World Records at 62.8 centimeters. Her limited height is due to a genetic condition called primordial dwarfism.

Amge was featured in a 2009 documentary titled Body Shock: Two Foot Tall Teen. She was also a guest contestant on the Indian TV show Bigg Boss 6. On August 13, 2014, she was cast as Ma Petit in the fourth season of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

In 2012, she met the shortest man in the world, Chandra Bahadur Dangi from Nepal. The couple posed together for the 57th edition of the Guinness World Records.
