Wrong Consider suicide if you are below 5'9 which is very short. 5'10-short. 5'11-kinda short, absolute minimum in europe. 6'0-average height 6'1-possibly average height in some countries 6'2-slightly above average 6'3-slightly tall 6'4-tall 6'5-ideal human male height 6'6 and over is very tall but it will be average height in next 20 years.

He was the first person to receive a posthumous Academy Award nomination for Best Actor and remains the only person to have two such nominations posthumously. he also is a cultural and style icon for only 3 movies... rebel without a cause, giant and east of eden. we wouldnt have blue jeans or tee shirts without James Dean. he is the greatest actor of all time

Chuy83 (10 months ago)
Definitely do it bro, I contemplate it every day. You will always have to date way, way, way below your worth. For example if you have no kids, not fat, in shape, not ugly, smell good, not crazy, come from a rich family, you will be relegated to dating or marrying single mothers, fat women, ugly women, stinky women with bad hygiene, crazy women and broke women. It's not worth it.
Waters (1 year ago)
I hope you're joking. I used to have a manager who was 5' 3" or 5' 4" at most. He is one of the best people I've ever known. Great person, smart, volunteer firefighter, etc. Fuck people who judge you for it. Don't let people get away with that shit.
bugnut82 (1 year ago)
Yeah hang in there man, I have friends who are 5'3 and 5'2, and they get women all the time. It's a confidence thing, don't even worry about your height, thats a waist of time

Plenty of successful shorter men out there, as seen in this video. I know many of amazing women who are attracted to, date and marry shorter men. Stay positive!

Should have named it "100 Famous Men who are shorter than the average US height" so people wouldn't get their panties in a bunch
Dane Logan (1 year ago)
average US height is 5,8 5,9. i see nobody taller than that where i lived in new jersey. nobody 6 foot or over there hardly. i think 5,7 5,8 is average for male or female. anything under 5,6 is short. we are not that tall in the US. maybe compared to some other countries in the world but not that tall. i see no giants in the US and i am only 5,1

I'd put Tupac Shakur on top of the list.5'7 real height other claims are fake; considered short for USA and also short for a black guy. Still a remarkable genuine person who achieved so many things in life at only 25 years old.

Great video, Ross Perot should be in this list too, he’s the Texas billionaire that ran for the US presidency in the 90’s. Mr. Perot is 5’5.
John C. (11 months ago)
Perot's height may be one reason why he got so few votes compared to Bush and Clinton. Few politicians and C.E.O.'s are short. People in general have an inherent bias against "short" as evidenced by promotions, elections, etc. There seems to be a "glass ceiling" for short people.
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
+irving estevez oh I remember Perot. Didn't realize he was 5'5" though. Nice addition!

Show Bizit (2 days ago)
It depends how big your or wide your bone frame is, as your shoulders. Some guys have short legs and look 5' 5 but are really 5 ' 7 or 8 because their heads are big. From distance their short bodies look smaller than what their height really is. From far distance they might look 5 ' 5" but true up close height is 5' 8" because extra large head hahaha it ok. respect.
