    Celebrated people often seem larger than life. In a series of experiments, and with observational data, we asked whether an association exists between regard for the action capabilities of soccer players and perceptual estimations of their size. Higher regard resulted in overestima-tions of size, and momentary modifications of apparent action capability resulted in overestimations or underestimations of size directly related to performance success or failure, respectively. © 2010 a Pion publication.
