Keet: Real L Ife
  • Ed Wood, in real life and as portrayed by Johnny Depp in the Tim Burton film. In addition to possessing childlike levels of innocence and enthusiasm, he was also a Wholesome Crossdresser. And not only did he have no idea how bad his movies were, but he didn't think that cardboard tombstone props falling down required a reshoot.
  • Darren Criss, tiny, loud, hyper. Wears pink sunglasses a lot.
  • Aerosmith's lead singer Steven Tyler. While not particularly tiny [he's 5'11.5" according to some sources], he's still hyper and loud and gets extremely excited about certain things he's passionate about.
  • Love him or hate him, Justin Bieber is this trope.
    • A downplayed version, as he's rather mellow when he's on talk shows.
  • Back when he was on Freaks and Geeks, John Francis Daley definitely qualified as this. In the behind-the-scenes videos, he attempts to scare the cast by hiding in the set and launching himself at them, runs around a parking lot flailing his arms in between takes, and proclaims to the camera "Watch how quickly I can eat!" before downing a bowl of noodles in ten seconds.
  • John Barrowman, being six feet tall, doesn't qualify for "small" but makes up for it by checking off "cute," "colorful," "hyperactive,", and "regularly loud" in an as over-the-top fashion as he can possibly manage. Here he does a perfect imitation of a Jack Russell Terrier.
  • Adam Savage. Again, not in terms of size so much as personality.
  • Richard Simmons.
  • Denis Leary turns this Up to Eleven, especially when discussing such topics as coffee, cigarettes, and eight-balls.
  • Comedian Pablo Francisco embodies this trope on stage to the point that he is often soaked in sweat by the end of his shows.
  • `90s child actor Courtland Mead was this. Here's an interview with him from 1997.
  • Doug Walker is this trope when he isn't playing any of his alter egos. Just watch some of his v-logs, particularly his Twilight Breaking Dawn part two review to see him squeal, yell and jump up and down in annoyance and laughter.
  • Chris Kluwe, despite being rather tall, is the nerdy, smart, loud, hyperactive, and energetic punter for the Minnesota Vikings. This picture summarizes his usual demeanour perfectly.
  • British comedian Russell Howard.
  • Kid President. Especially adored for his love of dancing and his insanely infectious laugh.
  • Paul McCartney can be this way at times.
  • A lot of filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, Stephen Sommers, Paul Verhoven, Brad Bird, Mc G, Lloyd Kaufman, and especially Martin Scorsese are like this.
  • Sam Raimi used to be like this when he was younger. Just watch the behind the scenes footage of Evil Dead 2.
    • Speaking of Evil Dead 2, Co-Writer Scott Spiegel is like this. Just listen to him on the DVD Commentaries of Evil Dead 2 and Hostel.
  • Mathew Buck AKA Film Brain is like this in interviews.
  • Jim Carrey. BIG TIME.
  • Robin Williams.
  • One Direction
  • While known for playing intense and often disturbed characters, teen actor Sterling Beaumon is this off-screen.
  • Every single member of Rush. Geddy Lee mostly exhibits it onstage, with his almost-dancing and bouncing around. Alex is like this mostly offstage, always cracking jokes and trying to make everyone around him laugh. And then there's Neil. Hoo boy, Neil. He's known for not showing much expression while drumming and being notoriously reclusive and shy in his daily life... but during interviews, watch for the interviewer asking him about something he's really passionate about. (Motorcycles, books, drums, birdwatching, and good food will all elicit this kind of response.) Neil will immediately start fanboying it up, with bouncing in his seat, flapping his hands, and starting up the Motor Mouth. And then he'll catch himself, sit on his hands so he doesn't bounce or flail, and make a conscious effort to slow his speech down. (Inevitably, he will fail. And it is adorable.)
  • Ryan Lee, particularly in Super 8 but also in real life as evidenced by numerous interviews.
