Soul star Toni Braxton finds she can often go unnoticed in clubs and bars because no one believes she's as short as she is.

The UNBREAK MY HEART singer admits she often gets chatted up by men who don't realise exactly who she is until they look closely.

She says, "They think I'm tall. They may say, 'You look familiar.' Then they talk to me and I countdown 10, nine, eight... Then they get it.

"They're like, 'Oh my God. You're so much shorter in person. I didn't know it was you.' It's a good thing.

"I like being short, although sometimes I wish I was taller so I could have longer legs."
