Paul Newman height: 5ft 9.5in (177 cm)
American actor best remembered for roles in films such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, Cool Hand Luke, The Hustler, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Verdict, The Hudsucker Proxy, Hombre, The Color of Money and Road to Perdition. In a 1986 NY Post article it mentioned Newman wouldn't reach 5ft 11, except in heels, and would offer $1000 to charity for every inch over 5ft 8 Paul measured. Mr Newman replied that he'd be willing to write a $500,000 cheque if he was indeed 5ft 8, but if they were wrong, then they'd give $25,000 to charity for every quarter inch over 5ft 8 he measured. The NY Post never took up the bet.
