I can't see him doing the same sort of films as his father! I wonder if he feels cheated?
VeryShortRussianDude said on 23/Oct/16
5'0!? LOL if he's 5'0 then what's Cheadle? 5'3!? listing is fair, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was slightly shorter.
Grip said on 8/Oct/16
I met him, I am not sure if he would be considered little person but he is very tiny.
Alika ross said on 7/Oct/16
I would have guessed about 5'0" which I think is closer to reality.
Powerhouse said on 12/Sep/16
I watched a movie called Speed Of Life, and in it Scott Caan has a scene with Mia Kirshner who is listed at 5'1.5 here and claimed 5'2 herself and she is wearing heels in the scene and he has a boot and they are the same height. He is a 5'5 guy for sure, and if you watch some of his films that is clear and he is also a really good actor, and yeah i think his height has effected his career and is preventing him from being a leading man in big Hollywood films.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Sep/16
He doesn't look much like his dad though at all Josh.
Josh Jeffords said on 5/Sep/16
In his youth may have wore lifts looked taller but next to Cheadle it's obvious he's short.
Always liked him reminds me of a mellow version of his dad.
Too bad his height does seem to be keeping him from being a bigger star.
A said on 3/Sep/16
He seems to bring up his height and how he is bigger than people a lot , that is a classic height concious man thing .
Arch Stanton said on 7/Aug/16
Yeah he's one of those rare short guys who can get away with being short because of his looks/charisma. Women couldn't give a rat's ass if he's only 5 ft 5 because he seems to have those key alpha male qualities.
Johan said on 11/Apr/16
5'8" in the morning after a nap in the back of the volvo. It's said that he can give a 5'10" impression as well, all his friends say so.
Brad said on 9/Apr/16
5' 4.5". Check out the 5' 8" line by G on 8/15/07. Crushed by the Scottish thingamajig height stick.
Ashley said on 30/Aug/15
So hott!! I think he might be shorter than 5'5 though. But either way, super sexy!

Met Scott at the theater he showed his play at the Falcon Theater in Burbank, CA and went to see it three times. He is very talented and a nice guy as well. Also met his father who is also very nice to talk to. Scott may not be very tall, but has a nice body with muscles in the right places. Will be seeing Scott again in Hawaii soon and cannot wait.
Aloha, Madeline

@arch Stanton ... He looks exactly like his father in person... The picture doesn't do the similarities justice
Arch Stanton said on 4/May/15
I don't think he looks much like his dad at all Carry. And much softer in temperament.
Carry22 said on 2/May/15
He looks and has similar mannorism of his dad James Caan. His body is definitely in shape but, odd. If he plays his cards right he can have a great career as a character actor, however I don't se him as a leading man.
1-89cm said on 25/Apr/15
Odd looking body,but good actor. Pretty short but no big deal
richkid123 said on 15/Apr/15
Legit 5'5"... Shortish guy
Shane said on 14/Apr/15
Have worked with him several times, but size difference is too much for me to accurately determine. He is taller that a 5'3 gal I know and shorter than a 5'6 gal I know. Very fit with excellent posture, trains Jiu-hits u and got his costar Alex into it as well.
Cat said on 18/Mar/15
Blonde, gorgeous, athletic and sexy.... 5'5" of total man 🏄
Sam said on 17/Mar/15
He is 5'5 or 5'5.5". Great actor, very athletic. Height isn't that important.
Josh said on 8/Dec/14
Rob, do you think he can be under 5'5 at some point of the day?
[Editor Rob: I think he pretty much can hold around 5ft 5, I'd be surprised if he really dropped under the mark more than a whisker.]
richkid123 said on 6/Nov/14
@Flowerpower He really is very handsome. I 've seen him in person
Flowerpower said on 24/Oct/14
Whats with all the anti height jibes , if he's a good person and personally I think he ,s gorgeous, and a brilliant actor, what difference dose it make how tall he is.
MarcusTheSwede said on 11/Aug/14
Marie: That was nice Said of you more girls should think like you
Powerhouse said on 23/May/14
@Max Yeah I think if they both straightened their posture there would be around 3 inches between them.
Max said on 14/May/14
He looks like a weak 5'4" next to Cheadle. Just compare the level of their eyes.
Marie said on 11/Apr/14
All you haters, so what if he is short, short is not inferior.

Dude is awesome and very hot. He just proves that height is not everything us girls are into.
richkid123 said on 24/Mar/14
He can look 5'6". Used to see him in hollywood here and there, thought he was shortish. Very built guy. Doesn't look like the type of guy to mess with.
Powerhouse said on 20/Feb/14
Something doesn't add up, in some earlier films like Ready to Rumble he looks every bit 5'5, in the film Novocaine he had maybe 2 inches on 5'2.5 Helena Bonham Carter, although recently he seems to look taller (I could be wrong) on Hawaii Five-0 and some of his more recent films and pics, not to mention in the pic with Don Cheadle. I wouldn't be shocked if he wears lifts from time to time although he doesn't seem like the kind of guy who is insecure about his height so I dont know haha.
Gina Maria said on 11/Jan/14
Well, I dated a guy 6' 4" that was afraid of his own shadow, so I don't see where height makes the man. I don't particularly care for big guys.
sam said on 15/Dec/13
MD said on 18/Nov/13
Hadn't seen this photo picture on his page. I think more than anything, it shows that the 5'8" listing for Cheadle is off, particularly when you take into Scott's lean.
LD said on 14/Nov/13
Love how disgusting being 4-5 inches below average height is to most people. Look at the comments here.

If Caan wanted to hide his height, he'd do so like Tom Cruise. The guy is 5'5". What's the point of looking short on screen if that height is fake?
richkid123 said on 25/Oct/13
saw him about a month ago and thought he was kind of short. Very built guy.... and hairy
yeye said on 14/Oct/13
Don is shorter or Scott is taller. Theres noe a 3 inch diffence in the pic. My call is that Cheadle is 5'7 and change
yeye said on 12/Oct/13
Looks the part of a 5'5 guy. He's a fairly good motivation for 5'5 range guys - looking through his videos on youtube he sure does have some hearthrob quality apparently. Many female fans. He is quite built.
Specific Jim said on 2/Oct/13
He'd make a great Wolverine. He's got the perfect height and build for it. He also has the gruff brawler demeanor that fits the character perfectly.
Powerhouse said on 19/Aug/13
Great actor, very solid build makes up for his lack of height.
cd said on 28/Jul/13
He's quite a bit shorter than his father, and his proportions are a bit odd, maybe he never maxed out his potential while he was growing?
Scarsdale said on 13/Jun/13
Yeah watch 'Enemy of the State' he's SHORT.
6-2Frank said on 11/Mar/13
He's listed as 5'5", so he's probably 5'3". Sounds right. He looks ridiculous on Five-O. Looks like he's always in a hole. Midget.
richkid123 said on 10/Feb/13
He does not look quite 5'5" in the photo, but he is leaning so that would explain it. He is exactly 5"5". right on the 65 inch line.
Woopie said on 4/Feb/13
He is way shorter than 5'5"
Kawela Rob said on 27/Jan/13
A lot shorter in Hawaii with his disrespectful comments about it
. Little mans complex luck of the sperm and spoiled....that's how tall he is.
richkid123 said on 8/Jan/13
I thought he was taller when I saw him, but he wasn't. Great actor, pretty solid dude, but he is a short guy.
leonari said on 5/Jan/13
What is this talk of 5'6" for Caan? Are people losing it completely now?? He is lucky if he is a full 5'5". The man looks tiny in every scene no matter the movie or show he is in. Folks: People look bigger on screen than in real life so looking as short as Scott does in films means he is tiny. Tiny= 5'5" and below.
Walkie said on 10/Nov/12
He's not 5'8". He's 5'6" at most. He's a creepy looking little person.
Silent d said on 4/Oct/12
jackie said on 26/Sep/12
It's not just his height he's oddly proportioned. His legs are way smaller than his upper body. Weirdly though despite all that I still find him hot. Not as hot as his co star but very hot non the less.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 15/Aug/12
Thank you, Rob and sorry if i posted that question in this page. I thought it was Rupert Grint's :S
ANDREA[ITA] said on 14/Aug/12
Rob, if you type "rupert grint robert sheehan" there are several images of them... How tall you think Sheehan looks? He's listed at 6'. Could he be taller?
[Editor Rob: he looks 6ft range, sometimes he can appear a bit more]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 14/Aug/12
Rob, if Alex O'Loughlin is really nearly 6'1, Caan looks closer to 5'6! Maybe a weak one? Even in the photo above there arent 3 inches, but again Don Cheadle could be shorter than 5'8... I think he wouldnt be shorter than a Jet Li, listed at 5'6! You think about 5'6 is a possibility?
[Editor Rob: he can look 5ft 5 and sometimes a little more, but maybe he wears a bit bigger footwear at times, it wouldn't surprise me.]
Rob Rage said on 10/Jun/12
Scotts Dad James is 5'91/2...It's odd that He is much shorter..Must not have eaten all the Growth Hormone injected meat that's been consumed by the past couple of generations...He looks great..and has a hit that trumps being vertically Challenged..!

I feel ya Derrick my dads 6 ft moms 5'4 and I'm 5'51/2 but to be on topic Scott caan is great I'm watching oceans 11 right now
derrick said on 27/Dec/11
my dad is 6'3 my momis 5'5 and my grandpa is 6'1. im 15 and im 5'7
John said on 17/Dec/11
I think he is actually close to 5'7.When he stands besides Alex o Loughlin his eyes are just bellow Alex's chin,that would make him about 15 cm shorter.
Mike W. said on 6/Dec/11
I'm 5'5" It's about time that Hollywood shows that we are not wimpy bad guys that are not sexy. Thank you Scott Caan, and thank you Hollywood.
Pappy said on 3/Dec/11
Not all great actors are tall....Al Pacino is also 5'5". Scott,like his Dad James is a joy to watch
josh said on 3/Dec/11
guys like scott caan and kevin connolly give short guys like me hope im about 5'6 and plan on becoming and film actor .
josh said on 3/Dec/11
the truth of the matter about short stars is they become the greatest actors ..Some the greatest men in history are actually average height ..People poke fun at thefact that little dudes have napoleon complex ..but truth is that napoleon was average height for his time
scrotum said on 28/Nov/11
I didn't know his dad is James Caan. Nice that he doesn't wear lifts.
revol said on 25/Nov/11
He is actually no taller then 5'2"....he raises his hair up ridiculously, so that gives him almost three inches.
phil said on 17/Nov/11
@raptordan women wear something called heels and sometimes up to 6" heels. So lets assume anna is wearing 4 inch heels putting her at 5'10", which seems about right in the picture with scotty at 5'5"
Brad said on 11/Nov/11
Doesn't care about his height. He should talk to the liar in wedged up Bieber Boots who says "I'm 5 feet 8".
jon hunt said on 7/Nov/11
Scotty boyyyyy , what are you even doin on here ? Lol, lookin up what people are sayin about ur height ??? Im 5'4" , and i plan on becoming an action star, i draw inspiration from short actors like you , who act so good that people over look their height (no pun intended)
Silent D said on 19/Oct/11
I heard he is shorter than johnny galicki who is 163cm. I would say caan is 160cm. He gets towered by 180cm alex o'loughlin. His dad wasn't that short, what happened to him. He is still a cool actor. No way he is 165cm. He looks shorter unless all the tv shows make him look really short. All the girls are taller than him in Hawaii five o.
Claire said on 7/Oct/11
Raptordan. I just commented on this on the Alex O'Loughlin page. Scott has got to be tiny. Even if she is wearing heels.
raptordan said on 19/Sep/11
Just watched the emmy's. Anna Paquin and Scott Caan presented an award together. Anna Paquin is listed as 5'6". She is at least 6" taller than him. I would say that Scott is 4'11" to 5'1".

Here is a link to the picture: Click Here
donald said on 10/Sep/11
Does he wear lifts on Five-0?
Richard said on 10/Sep/11
I just watched the movie "El Dorado, (1967)"
staring The Duke, John Wayne, 6'4" with Co-Star
James Caan, 5'9" at age 27. Him and Scott look
so much alike at that age. I'd like to see both
father and son on Hawaii Five-O together, now
that would be good. If Scott is 5'5" or 5'6" maybe
even 5'4", who cares. He's a good actor and
his height would not change that either.
If so, remember that dumbass Bin Laden he
use to be 6"4-5" and we know how his life
Susan said on 31/Aug/11
What does Scott's height matter? I am a new fan of Hawaii Five-0 and I don't want to miss any episodes. I like seeing something of Scott and Alex's private lives, such as Scott's ex-wife, and Alex's sister. I look forward to many more episodes.
burby said on 29/Aug/11
Ferrara 5'4", Scott Caan 5'5".
Evan said on 22/Aug/11
5'7'' hes taller then Jerry Ferrara easily who says hes 5'6'', which is bull of course
jake said on 18/Aug/11
Sounds as if it really was Scott Caan. Good on him, I haven't seen much of his work but I am a huge fan of James Caan.
Short Mexican said on 10/Jul/11
Most people posting comments in celebheights are just measuring themselves against celebrities to brag about how "I am taller than X" or "Y is shorter than me". Is height important? Apparently (and contradictorily) this site proves it is not.
Brian said on 28/Jun/11
I think it's funny the emphasis that we place on certain things. A person's height is one of them. If you are comfortable in your skin, that's all that matters - and don't let anyone make you feel differently. I was short growing up and prayed that I would catch up to the other boys that I knew. It was SO important to me. I grew late and did catch up but soon after realized that it wasn't such a big deal after all. I have friends today that are tall (over 6'5) that say people stare at them - and they hate it. I say 'when you can rise above who you are physically, that is an enviable place to be.'
Linda said on 23/Jun/11
To Scott Caan, your comment on 6th May is never a truer word said. Too much emphas is made on height, as opposed to the quality of what one does. I am a very petite 5ft criminal lawyer in London and although I'm stared at quite a lot, as most tower over me it hasn't and doesn't make a difference on the impact or quality of my work, once everyones got over themselves and concentrated on what I say. Another form of acting you might say. So there's a message in there for all to focus on whats on offer and the characters you are building. H50 is coming to the end of its first season in the UK, and even at rest can't seem to get away from the criminal drama. Its been great and very much looking forward to season 2 when it airs here in the autumn. Keep up the good work and perhaps you will even make your way to London theatre!

So what if ur 5ft 5in. Iam only 5ft 3in. Ur height isn't important. Who u are as a person is. Love hawaii 5 0, great show.
PJ said on 7/Jun/11
Scott, you obviously take care of yourself and are exceptional at your craft! My fascination with height and actors is that, growing up, all actors appeared larger than life. Much to my amazement I have found that most actors are of average or shorter stature. Is this because they, whether genetically or environmentally, have a predisposition towards acting....or do they photograph better on the screen....or simply that there are more people in this group! Interesting! Whatever the case, short, average, or tall, as long as you are good at what you do, you are still larger than life to me!
Sinead Kelly said on 5/Jun/11
Scott Caan, seriously we do not care how tall you are... you like your father are a fantastic actor and you are an absolutely brilliant photographer. I hope you spend many, many years entertaining us all. All my love Sinead

I saw him today on Malibu beach . He and actor Eric Olseen were surfing. I took couple of pictures of them but didn't ask to take pictures with them. I'm big fan of HFO and NCIS: los Angeles but was afraid they will say NO.

Take care

It's not. And 5'5 sounds spot on.

The man is a phenomenal actor and very good looking. I'm surprised at how many people would judge a man based on height. I would be honored to meet him and I think he is absolutely fantastic. Scott~ You're wonderful and I'm looking forward to more theatrical achievements.
Michael McCormick said on 11/May/11
For Scott - I've been to Honolulu many times and this year is the first time I've seen Diamond Head green to near the crest. Watched a 'new' episode of H50 9May11 where DH was in background and was green to the top. Were there episodes of H50 filmed after the 1Jan11??
Scott Caan said on 6/May/11
Thank you for your interest in my physical stature, but my size should not be a factor in how I am judged as an actor, but judge my actual body of work instead. As far as not engaging with background actors during a shoot is totally false. Alex and myself attempt to make an effort on each shoot, if we can, to speak with everyone.. Most of the time we are trying to stay focused on the scene. I myself am usually in a zone and am almost oblivious to anyone around me, except my dog that I keep on set with me and play with when I get a chance because it helps relax me. So please try to take the focus off of my size and worry more about the story line and depth of my characters, whether it be on H50 or Entourage, or whatever. And if you are ever on set with me, just approach me as if you've known me forever, I don't mind talking and taking pictures. Don't let the production assistants tell you that you can't approach me or Alex. Half the time we are just sitting in our chairs texting on our phones. Anyway, thanks for watching the show, and we resume shooting season 2 of H50 in July.
james is confused said on 2/May/11
robert redford is 5'10"
HILocal said on 26/Apr/11
5'5" seems about right, I see them shooting 5-O all over Honolulu, as a former professional extra, the main actors never speak with the extras, I have been on set with Alex and Scott and neither engage with anyone but there assistants and the director.
James said on 22/Apr/11
Look at the super-shortie of all times. Robert Redford. They had to give him a shortie actress- Demi Moore for the millionaires' club, and yet he had to stand on books for shooting! So don't worry Scott Caan- it is your attitude that makes you big and loved by the ladies!

One of the few short actors that doesn't care about his height. Terrific camera work on 5-0, you'd think he was taller.
TrishMack said on 12/Apr/11
Many of you may not remember another short actor who played both leading man, romantic lead and tough guy personna; I am speaking none other than James Cagney... So do not go sprouting off that Scott Caan will not be a leading man in the classic sense, as was also Alan Ladd and Audey Murphy, both short... Okay I am a woman, but never grew taller than 5'5" tall even though my mother was 5'8" tall and my Dad a muscular 6'3" tall, so go figure, yet my oldest daughter and my oldest son are very tall; she is 5'9" tall and he is 6'5" tall but their father is less than 6 feet tall...

Someone who was an extra on the set blogged about Scott Caan being tiny. She had a pic with Alex who she does say is very, very tall but she says Scott is very short. Also she said he was an ass who didn't even glance at anyone who wasn't a big name. Whereas Alex O spent lots of time talking with and being nice to crew and extras. She says Scott seemed like a nasty little dude!

"Boxer-reach" P-L-E-A-S-E !!! Being a "boxer" when it comes to being a baddass or MMA, or even "Real" life situations is like bragging about being the tallest midget on the block... Anyone whose been involved in MMA, at any level would attest to this FACT... HELL, anyone whose even watched MMA or had any Millitary will attest to this. "Real" fights generally go to the ground… striking skills are good, but formal boxing is limited and only effective in the safety of a boxing ring! Period. Dumb ass!
RobK said on 21/Feb/11
People shrink as they much as 6 inches...Some Pro wrestlers like the Hulk have lost 5 or 6 inches because of disk compression...and even during the day...If you measure yourself when you get up in the morning...and then before you go to bed....there will be a quarter inch or more difference..mainly because the disk in your spine compress..!
MD said on 21/Feb/11

How many inches do you see, here, between Caan and O'Loughlin?

Click Here

It's not a good picture, but you can see the footwear, at least.

[Editor Rob: he looks about 7 I'd say, but he is a bit nearer, he's more in line with Grace and looks nearly 4 inches shorter than her, both look normal shoes]
JoJo said on 20/Feb/11
Scott Caan is awesome. He makes Hawaii 5-0 watchable. The accolades he receives for his acting is well-deserved. However, Scott is not 5'5". I live here in Hawaii and I saw them at a bar. I was standing beside them all night. I am 5'6" and stood taller than Daniel Dae Kim, so I'd say Daniel is about 5'4". Since everyone knows Daniel is taller than Scott by at least a few inches, Scott should be about 5'2" at the most.

Who cares that he's 5-5 He's still a good looking man.

@ James

Paul Newman 5'5? Go barry yourself into ground.
Shanoe said on 17/Jan/11
Caan listed at 5-5 seems about right. I also believe he is showing signs of thinning hair on top. He has that baby fine hair on top and he is young for that. Ten years from now that will be gone.

Parker, genetics NEVER suggest that tall parents would have tall children

I didn't say that - I just pointed out that most paediatricians and growth specialists use a standard tool for assessing height potential for a child whose been referred or for parents may be concerned about their childs height.

As in everything in life, its not fool proof, but demonstrates that short parents of 5'6 and 5'2 cold have son's ranging from 5'2 -5'10 at 95% probabilty - that's a wide spread.

If both parents are tall, I don't see why the child would be short.
linke said on 7/Jan/11
acg,I doubt farrell is even 5'10.In the movie,swat jeremy renner was exactly an inch shorter,jeremy is 5'8.5.
Golum said on 7/Jan/11
Parker, genetics NEVER suggest that tall parents would have tall children. Although people are usually around the same heights as their parents, short parents often produce tall children, and vice versa. To think that tall parents would not have short children is a little naive. People stopped making this kind of generalization since the 1950's. Genetics doesn't work that way. I work in health care, by the way.

Perspectively, to put it in layman's terms, two brunette parents could still give birth to blonde children due to genetics past down from a grandparent who could have been blonde.

You will start learning this kind of stuff in grade 10.

As listed, I think he doesn't care about his height, he looks wild short in everything, 6 footers tower over him.

He didn't look THAT short near 5'11 Colin Farrell....

I find it strange that he's so much shorter than his father, I mean genetically it's just puzzling; his mom was a model and although i can't find her height, doubt she's under 5 4 as a former model, so why is Scott 4 inches shorter than his dad? Doesn't make genetic sense, similarly my dad is 6 2, I'm 5 inches shorter. My twin brother however is 6 1 and my moms 5 4 so what's the explanation? I can't speak for any of Scott's habits during his growth years that could have stunted his growth but I know I've done absolutely nothing to stunt mine and am very physically fit and conscious. If anything my brother should be shorter with his poor nutrition, yet he made it to 6 1. It's just a curious predicament, what has made us so much shorter than our fathers?

Luck of the draw Larry - Most height predictors use the mean of parents height +2.5 inches (for males) - The caviat being there's a chance (68%)of being within 2 inches of this and 95% of being within 4.......that's a big spread.

My own brother is 4-5 inches taller than me.

@Joe Joe - exactly. So being 5'5 doesn't correlate with your toughness.
Weightlifting shows your physical strength doesn't effectively correlate with your height. How tall are the most succesful weightlifters?

@Hart - in a fight, yes, a 6'-er will have greater reach than 5'5 guy, but the 5'5 guy will also be much more agile and balanced and prorbably a bit more than a common pain in the ass.
Besides, Black Americans, as much as they are shorter than Whites on average, they compensate it more than enough with their reach. So it isn't always that simple.
Anonymous said on 23/Dec/10
What about that short dude who played a tough guy in mafia type movies: Joe Peci? Not sure how to spell the last name. And I know this is TMI but I've known shorter guys who were super tall and tall guys who were really short.... if ya know what I mean.

hey ex boxer i can guarantee someone like matt serra whos 5'6 could take one of your jabs get inside and knock your ass out, just like he did to george st pierre whos about 5'11
Puge Henis said on 15/Dec/10
He was a very nice guy, and he is not stocky at all in person. I thought he was going to be really thick before I worked with him, but he is skinny as hell. He honestly looks like he only weighs about 130lbs and I swear on my life I'm not joking. Don't get me wrong, he is in great shape, but he's so tiny. I do enjoy his acting though. As far as Alex O'Laughlin is concerned I would say he seemed to be like 6' maybe 6'1". When I filmed with them, Hawaii 5-0 hadn't aired yet so I had no idea who he was so I didn't pay very much attention to his height. I shot a 2nd episode about 3 weeks ago but I didn't work next to him so I couldn't judge his height very well.
Mr. R said on 9/Dec/10
This looks right. But I have to hand it to Scott; he lets Alex O'Loughlin tower over him in Hawaii 5-0, and does not seem to care. There are no angles or any special effects to make him look taller.
Hart said on 8/Dec/10
Bon- you have been watching too many movies, as a 6' ex-boxer I can tell you someone 5' 5" doesn't have enough reach to even get near me. Napoleon complex, or not.
Bon said on 6/Dec/10
you think a 5'5 can't be a tough guy? what about those wightlifters, you think some typical skinny 6'6 dude would stand any chance against them?
hart said on 4/Dec/10
Tough guy at 5' 5"? You've got to be kidding me....half these Hollywood leading men are practically "little people"
Richard said on 8/Nov/10
Paul Newman was 5'9" Scott Caan is short! He can make up for it with his heritage and intangibles, but he's not going to ever be a leading man in the classic sense, like his dad! He'll e a #2 or #3. Decent actor.
6foot4 said on 28/Oct/10
Scott Caan is a pretty decent actor. He is also quite stocky in build so that helps his 'tough guy' persona.
I think he pulls it off pretty well. Those that think otherwise are just jealous of someone who is happy doing what he is doing with his life.
Tommy Gunn said on 25/Sep/07
With regards to the post of "Anonymous" I totally agree with him, it seems that in many ways heights blown out of proportion. We should all be happy with who we are, it's our personality that counts!!
Anonymous said on 30/Aug/07
to the people who worry about their height,dont.I used to live in the US, many people there are obsessed with size and have a football mentality of being big,but none of the girls i knew there were especially attracted to height.In Europe where i live now,people care about size much less,its all about personality and many girls even dislike big guys.

My parents: 5' 2''. Me: 5' 7''. Lucky to be at this height! Anyways, my bro is 5' 5'' and he gets ALL the chicks! Personality is where it's at. It's not the size, it's what you do with it.
colbertnational said on 11/Aug/07
hey thomas im 5'6 so we're in the same boat. when it comes to girls just be confident and dont think about ur height too much. i've noticed that taller girls are actually more attracted to me than tiny ones. take tom cruise for example he has been dating alot of taller women or james blunt who is dating a supermodel 3 inches taller than him.
Rubes said on 7/Aug/07
I saw him at a club in NYC a couple of months ago...I am a tall girl, but he was a widget...yet still very attractive!

Scott Caan has always been good value. Anyone seen ‘Ready to Rumble’? It’s a pretty crap movie but I remember the funny scene where Scott Caan is singing along to Britney Spears, a hilarious scene.
sam said on 6/Aug/07
actually my short problem essentially went away, "who cares", but ur right, there are always crutches, height or not, that we all need to avoid using
sam said on 6/Aug/07
ya, i skateboard so not to big of a problem with that but i definitly know what u mean about the ladies. height may just be an obstacle in ur head though, not totally sure on that....
thomas said on 5/Aug/07
i changed my name cause that just made me sound weak.....but scott does look pretty good even tho he is 5'5. For me my battles are mainly girls who usually pick on you the worst ha and sports because i had to stop playing basketball and football because my coaches would never give me a chance. I was talented enough they just thought it was not possible for me to compete. So now i just play baseball.
sam said on 4/Aug/07
depressed boy, i know what being short is like, always was until i was about 17, know what its like, i hated it, u could still get bigger though, i'm living proof, anyway scott caan doesn't look so bad at 5'5, let me know ur thoughts.
sam said on 4/Aug/07
depressed boy, scott caan may not even be as muscular as u sound, so look on the bright side, problably around ur height i'm guessing from what i've seen (5'5). but ur only 17, doctors arn't always right about this stuff.
who cares said on 4/Aug/07
I am 5`6" and my height has never bothered me. Why are you guys so depressed about being an inch shorter? Sounds to me like you guys are overly concerned about your looks abd using it as a crux for your failures, Life is too short to dwell on what God gave us, you should be happy your not a dwarf or invalid, retarded, etc... Count your blessings.
sam said on 4/Aug/07
also, depressed boy, send me an IM, (emericask84) we should consult about height, maybe we can work out some concerns, bet i can help, peace...
sam said on 4/Aug/07
scott caan always looked 5'5 to me, even though others doubted it. Hey depressed boy, i used to be shorter also, know what thats like. it used to piss me off too, felt embarassing, laughed at, pushed around. is that what bothers u about it? just curious. height can mess with u. you, me and scott, we know about this. let me know ur further thoughts.
depressed boy said on 27/Jul/07
i look up to scott because i am a 17 year old male whos dad is 6 feet and mom is 5 feet and i was unlucky enough to be 5feet5. I was told at 15 i was done growning at 5'3 but with help i made it to 5'5. Being short has made me suicidal depressed and i just do not enjoy life. Ive been through medicine and counseling but the only thing that helps is weight lifting cause i take out my aggression and i am one of the strongest people in my school. People do not mess with me acuse i let them know i have 17 years of hate and strength, but i am also a great friend. I weigh 180 and i am not fat because i have abs somewhat. So thanks a lot scott you are my role model.
Real said on 11/Jul/07
truthiness, good call on taller women being attracted to shorter men.. i'm 5'6 and seem to have much better luck w/ women 5'5-5'8

5'5 or not, scott caan is a badass.. kind of crazy that his dad is 5'9, but
my dad was 5'8, mom 5'5, and i'm 5'6.. so i guess it happens
Civilian said on 9/Jun/07
Give him a break. It seems that you are feasting on his height instead of giving a
reasonable response. He is 5'5 and definately not less.
Leung said on 6/Jun/07
Everyone is different. My colleague is only 6’0.5” because even though his father is 6’3” his mum is only 5’4”.

My parents are 5’5” and 4’10” therefore my chances of reaching 6’ were very slim, I managed to get to 5’11.5” which is taller than what my parents expected.
sidewinder said on 6/Jun/07
it happenned to me Aaron. my father is almost 5'10.5 and my mom is 5'1 thus i ended up being 5'7
Aaron said on 2/Jun/07
If Scott Caan's father was 5'9 then how tall was his mother? Coz I seen this sorta thing happen before where a guy ends up short even though his father is average but if his mother is really short than that's what causes it.
RICHARD said on 19/May/07
I guess Scott didn't have the same genes as his 5'9 father. 5'5 seems right
TheJerk said on 12/May/07
Thats not cool at all. People who would start something with you based on height must have nothing else to go on.
truthiness said on 27/Apr/07
You guys must be living in pretty tough neighborhoods cuz i am 5'5 and i rarely get any taller dudes trying to start sh!t. and yea i agree with you guys that society is messed up how they portray and treat short people. being short isn't something you have a decision over like race or ethnicity. And on the matter of women, i find that alot of taller women (around 5'8+) are more attracted to me than women that are shorter than me.
leonari said on 26/Apr/07
yeah he is very close to a full 5'5" in my opinion...
Aaron said on 25/Apr/07
I know how ya feel Peanut I'm around 5'4 myself and I have to put up with being made fun of and stuff too, but there really should be some sort of social club for short guys that aren't dwarfs, I mean they got Tall Clubs how come I never here about any short clubs? It's messed up and people are always trying to start sh*t with you coz they assume you can't defend yourself so that's why there's alot of short dudes who bulk up muscle and then other people claim that they have a "napoleanic complex" I mean c'mon if people didn't give us so much crap for being short then we wouldn't have to feel that we had to.
peanut said on 10/Apr/07
do any of you know any sites that give some,help and advice on being short,I am 5ft 4 not a dwarf so I can't join their society,and I am on the bottom end of the normal people society, I have felt the prejudice against height challenged people from family ,work ,dating and just walking down the street, if I was brought up with a little more support maybe my confidence or self esteem would be better,but when you are programmed from childhood that you are short and must lose(will lose)no good,,can't win or do anything good,I know I am rambling ,but look at society( tv commercials) when ever there is a very short guy in it ,he is disrepected or the brunt of a joke, anyway any web sites or help sent my way couldnt hurt me at this point , send it to , I'm just tired of being short and having to fight all the time, crap even women make me work my ass off harder to meet them than they would a 6ft tall man, but I know thats just the way life is.

Are you sure KT? I saw that movie but never noticed it.

This site has Scott Caan listed at 5'5", and Jessica Alba at 5'6.25".

Yet, in into the blue, Caan was a little taller.

G-unit, you've probably also read that studies show that in the business world tall men are more likely to get promoted rather than shorter men.
So G-unit what this means is that I'll live longer than you, but you'll earn more than me. hehehe, those researchers that do these studies have too much time on their hands

i met 10 minutes ago he seemed around 5'5 he was over 5'4 and under 5'6 165 or 166 cm i had 1.25 casual shoes and he had converse but he didnt look under 5'5
Big and Short said on 10/Jan/07
I'm about 5'4" and weigh about 185 and do a lot of weightlifting. So, it's definitely possible to weigh that much and be that short. Muscle weighs more than fat so you can put a lot of lbs on if it's muscle weight. There are pro bodybuilders around my height that weigh well over 200 and don't have an ounce of fat on them. I don't have a 6 pack but Im not fat either. Just bulky. Thats probably about how Scott is too if he weighs around 180 at that height.
Glenn said on 5/Jan/07
I read about that with short people.
G-unit said on 4/Jan/07
as brittish guy say: Smaller people live longer. That's a fact. It has something to do with your heart. If we would compare 2 persons with different heights (5'7 and 6'2 for example), but with same genes and same lifestyle, the shorter guy will live 5-10 years longer.
Me, myself I'm 6'˝ (184cm), which is considered tall. So don't think I'm lying just try saying that short people are better than tall people :)

On topic: Scott Caan appears taller in movies, but in real life shorter. I have no idea where I would've put this guy. But I guess 5'4-5'5 sounds correct.
leonari said on 17/Nov/06
Padraig: I agree . This guy is really short and I wouldn't be surprised if he is 5'4" in reality.

big daddy said on 20/Oct/06
Where did you get the 165lbs from? Hey may be 5'5.5", but I suspect he lies an inch or two below that.
Lmeister said on 16/Oct/06
Sorry bid daddy got kinda mixed up with the weight conversions Scott Caan is 75 kg = 165 pounds. Still really heavy, if he'd only be 5'3.5''. Hmm U don't really have to be 5'9''+ and have a sixpack to carry 180 pounds though. Depends really a lot of your body type not just how much muscles U've got...
big daddy said on 16/Oct/06
Considering he was in excellent shape for "Into the Blue" I doubt he's 180lbs. He'd have to be 5'9"+ to carry 180 and still have a 6-pack like he did. He's somewhere between 5'3" and 5'5". MAYBE 5'5.5" on a good day.
leonari said on 9/Oct/06
next to Paul Walker he looks like a's crazy. But plays suprisingly well...
Lmeister said on 6/Oct/06
He really cannot shorter than 5'5.5'', if he really is almost 180 pounds. You gotta be kiddind that he would 5'3'' or something...He is a short bulky guy, but not a "midget".
big daddy said on 14/Sep/06
For the record, I think there are some perspective issues in that picture making him look ridiculously short. Also, the sidewalk does look slanted downhill. From the pictures I've seen I would estimate 5'3.5" BAREFOOT, give or take 1/2".

What actress is that he's standing next to?
Leung said on 11/Sep/06
Yes truheight, those pics where he is wearing red sneakers and grey hat are way too much! My colleagues were wondering what I was laughing about. He looks tiny, a more solid version of Froddo perhaps
Regus said on 7/Sep/06
Yeah I have always noticed how SHORT he was in 'Enemy of the state', very blocky but dang he's kinda small.
leonari said on 14/Aug/06
I don't see this guy at 5'5"...sorry...he looks as if he is one of the shortest actors ever!
big daddy said on 9/Aug/06
Ok we have Paul Walker listed as 6'2.5". I agree with your 10-11" idea. I don't think Scott is shorter than 5'4" though. I really doubt he'd make it in hollywood if he was 5'2" or 5'3" like some are saying.
trueheight said on 8/Aug/06
that last pic by Jerv, wow he looks like a 'little person' or dwarf.

Big Daddy: if Walker straightened, it'd be a 10-11in difference; also, I believe Walker is at least 6'1.5 if not 6'2

How in the wolrd should Scott Caan grow? The guy is waypast the age of growth. Where do you get such an idea British guy? He wears lifts in movies to look a little less short...
British Guy said on 27/May/06

Is it just me?

Or does Scott look bigger in every film?

I think this is completly weird any photographic proof?


Last time I checked on site he was listed at 5ft 5in... Grown a bit rob?

5'5" is about right for Scott. Here's a pic with him next to his old man who measures about 5'9" so I'd say it's pretty close

Makes me feel good knowing he's that height, i'm 5'7 and a half! Although swear blind to be 5'8" whenever i'm asked!

Jason I Was Pleased That You Were Willing To Find Further Information Any Luck?
Jason said on 19/Jun/05
I'll have to look it up. I do know how much you eat is a big factor in longevity, the more calories one takes in (regardless if they're from good foods or bad), the more free radicals created disgesting them and hence the shorter one lives. Might not sound too significant, but it's apparently a huge factor. Short people (generally speaking) eat less, so they'd at least have the advantage there.
Anonymous said on 19/Jun/05
Google this and you'll see a hundred different opinions on the matter of height and longevity. Most of them seem to say that there is no correlation. Howevever, short people who are short because they are less well nourished certainly live for less time. Height is mostly a matter of geners, however, in cases were it's not (e.g in cases were its directly related to poverty) you can expect to live less
Jason said on 19/Jun/05
Funny, I've read the best height (for a man) in regards to longevity and less disease/illness is around 6'2'' or so.

leonari said on 2/Jun/05
So what are you saying BRITT? That Scott Caan is taller than 5'5"?? NEVER. Just take a lok at Oceans 12...He is dwarfed compared to any of the other stars. But he is in good shape and has a nice biceps...I believe this guy doesn't care how tall his opponent is when he is in a fight. I dn't know him but he looks like a guy who could kick ass.
Britt said on 1/Jun/05
I think it's kind of funny that he's only 5'5" but that he still got in a bar fight probabaly with a guy taller than him. Can't you just picture Scott Caan jumping on like...some 6' tall guy's back and taking him down? I think that would be freaking hilarious.
