How tall is Freddie Prinze Jr

Freddie Prinze Jr's Height

6ft 0in (182.9 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films Scooby Doo, I Know What You Did Last Summer, She's All That, Wing Commander and TV series Freddie and 24. He was quoted saying: "I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE ... at least he was cool and tall. I didn't have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do [at 24]. Just put the guy [Kiefer] on an apple box or don't hire me next time. You know I'm 6 feet and he's 5ft 4ins". He also said on Twitter: "I'm only 6'1. Not that tall".
I'm taller than [Ryan Gosling] and I'm Six-One with shoes...there's a lot of people who throw a couple of extra inches on there, and I always say 'Hey, I'm Six Feet' and people go 'No, no, no, you're like Six-Two, Six-Three'.

It freak me out if FPJ is 6'0?? I don't understand the downgrade. He look 6'1 on Conan O'brien show. David Schwimmer should also be downgraded at 6'0.

Editor Rob: if the man comes out and says he is 6ft 1 in shoes and barefoot 6ft, I'm not going to argue...unless he is lying about it for dramatic effect.
berta said on 18/Oct/17
hm but at the same time he says 6 foot 1 with shoes. well alot of people need to be downgraded now
berta said on 18/Oct/17
his claim is like the time kevin costner said he was 6 foot
Andrea said on 2/Oct/17
Is David supposed to look taller in that still? I would have said that Freddie can look a hair taller than him there but they may well be not much different... In any case, it is certainly hard to believe that David would be as much as one inch taller, based on these photos at least!
Editor Rob: I'd have said he was a bit taller, but there may not be much in it.
Andrea said on 2/Oct/17
How??? I barely know David (the only thing I have seen with him is American Crime Story, where he certainly didn's strike me as being a big 6'1 guy) but I also checked that episode of Friends where Freddie appeared and he really didn't seem any smaller than David and, if anything, a bit taller than him!!!
Editor Rob: I had a look and there wasn't a great amount of time in that episode with them, but I think I'd be surprised if David was shorter, but then I can see people estimate him as under 6ft 1, there's been arguments for that over the years and I wouldn't rule it out entirely.
Andrea said on 2/Oct/17
Rob, have you seen him with David Schwimmer? Click Here Click Here Click Here
Looks like he has better chance of being 6'1 than David from those pictures! Do you really think that David would be taller than him? You can also see the shoes he's wearing in the first two pictures: Click Here
At the same time, as you say, his claim is very specific, so I wouldn't argue more than a fraction over 6'...
Editor Rob: I think David would be a bit taller, but he may well not be much taller.

Do some proper research, Freddie was wearing some shoes that gave him 1-2 inches.
if you dont believe me then watch Shes all that in the start
Willes188 said on 30/Sep/17
Okey Rob that was immature, I can definitely see a downgrade in this case, but our old friend Paul Walker could be needing a downgrade too 6'1.5 as well, there's just not 2 inches between them how much you twist and turn on it.

Maybe do a 6'1.75 on Paul and 6'0.25 on Prinze Jr ?
Editor Rob: 6ft 0.25 certainly is arguable, you could see it as being possible.
Willes188 said on 29/Sep/17
Why don't just put him at 5'2.75? Nothing makes sense anymore
Editor Rob: the guy comes out saying he's 6ft 1 in shoes and six feet without, I'm not sure why I'd give him 5ft 2.75 though! 😎
Andrea said on 29/Sep/17
An honest and interesting claim! I haven't seen much of him but he certainly looked more 6' than 6'1 in something like 24. Although, having seen a few scenes of that show with Brian Austin Green, if BAG really is a full 5'11 he can look over 6' flat, like 184 range. Maybe 6'0.25 is a good compromise? A fraction over 6' and he doesn't bother with that?
Edimar1.84 said on 27/Sep/17
i dont understanded the donwgrade, he look likes 6ft0.5, i see my height in him. 184cm
Editor Rob: if the guy is saying he's 6ft 1 in shoes, and six feet without, maybe his quote makes sense. Folk who lie about their own height will upgrade him taller to compensate for their lie.
pauly e said on 18/Sep/17
I heard him say on his podcast "The Prinze and the Wolf" last week that he is 6'0 tall and that he is 6'1 in I would definitely bet he is more towards 6'0 than 6'1.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 16/Sep/17
He's probably more 6'0 3/4" than 6'0 1/2". I do get a taller impression from Henry Cavill, but that might be because of the fact that Henry typically has better posture than FPJ does. He was almost the same as Chris Klein, who could be 186 CM tall.
Junior said on 17/Aug/17
Watching Scooby Doo 1 & 2 alongside 6'4 Matthew Lillard i wouldn't think under 6'1 for Freddie, 6'0.5 is little low and i'm going to vote 6'0.75" to be fair.
Anonymous said on 20/Jul/17
Freddie Prinze looks exactly the same height as David Boreanaz in Bones. This listing looks good.
berta said on 7/Jun/17
also i think S.J.H is right about david shwimmer. this guy could be at worst same height as david but ptobably 3 mm taller
berta said on 7/Jun/17
this guy is 95 procent chanse taller than peak harrison ford. to me he really looks close to 6 foot 1. if i remember correctly he was about 2 cm shorter than paul walker.. this guy 184,9 and walker 187. If there was 4 cm bwwtween them they would have looked pretty mutch the same height. Average guess is spot on
Faisal said on 6/Feb/17
Watch him here. He's clearly taller than Andy Richter. Unbelievable. Could it be the footwear? Richter's dress shoes vs Prinze Jr's walking shoes?

S.J.H said on 23/Jan/17
David schwimmer would be 6'0.25 if freddie prinze jr to be stay at 6'0.5 , overall I can see a 6'1 for FPJ no obligation but schwimmer had to be just 6'0.75

Click Here

Click Here FPJ facing down look at schwimmer on doorway

Click Here schwimmer had slightly higher eye level than most 6'0-6'1 actors and most people notice it that still doesn't help him look 6'1 with higher hair volume next to FPJ , if FPJ is only 184cm

Click Here schwimmer doesn't look a proper 6'1 than freddie prinze jr

Click Here overall look very tallish and doesn't look under 6'1 and pull out a 6'1 guy chris klein i don't think klein could edge out FPJ

Click Here FPJ with 5'11 Brain austin green just look at top of their head , FPJ face down look at his eye and BAG look up to FPJ to give illusion of eye level near. Rob being fool by it. FPJ is more a proper 6'1 and david schwimmer can be 6'0.75

Click Here FPJ standing behind 5'11 BAG , camera advantage helps BAG not FPJ
josh jeffords said on 5/Jan/17
Weird like stated below he looks average most is he 6 1 ish?
He did look tall in that awful comedy he was an agent or assassin or something.
Must be a sloucher funny he had to take off shoes for reefer that dude is short and insecure.
Not gonna guess clearly i havent seen enough to have a good one.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/16
Out of bed: 186-187cm
Before bed: 184-185cm

I see this guy as a weak/almost 6ft1 guy. Walker exactly 1in taller at almost 6ft2.
S.J.H said on 18/Oct/16
I have make up a truth calling that FPJ is 6'1 and matthew lillard is 6'4 they both got confused underestimate by rob. Lillard look comfortably taller than a 6'3.5 vincent d'onofrio in a movie many years back and recently film a movie with 6'3.75 lee pace he doesn't look shorter than lee pace in fact he look fractionally taller. Freddie prince jr look over 6'1 with 6'1 david schwimmer and he looks it at 6'1 with 5'8.5 ryan phillippe
Editor Rob: from the few episodes I seen of that sitcom he did with BAG, I thought 184 range was more possible for him, although he may well manage to look taller.
berta said on 8/Jun/16
hm Think he is 6 foot and 3/4 184 is somehow to small. that would make paul Walker 186 and i Think he was 187
Sammy Derrick said on 23/May/16

He said 6'0 in an Intreview.
Click Here
I always thought he was 5'11 like Fred Jones in Scooby Doo maybe it's because he stood next to a strong 6'3 Matthew Lillard!!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/May/16
Jug said on 17/May/16
I always thought he was like 5'9. I never pictured him to be tall.
Andrea said on 3/Apr/16
One thing is claiming a height, another thing is actually measuring that height! He has said both 6' and 6'1 but he does look closer to 6' than 6'1...
183-184 is probably his range and he prefers to "round up" to 6'1 now...
Raul.Loghin said on 2/Apr/16
No, Freddie is definitely a strong 6'1. I asked him about his real height and he replied to me just 2 days ago on Twitter, and he said " 6'1 " and I'm also 6'1, So I can see him being just as tall as me.
Borats chicken said on 1/Mar/16
@clover, your wrong..well kinda. If you seen his shoes you could also see it gave him 1 inch, its in the very beginning of 'She's all that'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Feb/16
Walker might've been a weak 6ft2 in that case. He had 1in give or take on Freddie in She's All That.
Chocolatey said on 15/Feb/16
In 'she's all that' beginning can you see what type of shoe hes wearing and how much lifts does it give him
Andrea said on 10/Jan/16
He can look 6' range in 24 but certainly not 6'1... 183-184 is believable and he probably "rounds up" to 6'1! He has claimed 6'1 a few times on Twitter...
Robbin said on 1/Sep/15
184cm very accurate. He was almost 4inch shorter than 6'4 Matthew Lillard
184.9 on a bad day said on 15/May/15
6ft 0.5 is more likely than just 6ft and Paul was a inch taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/May/15
I always thought 185-186cm range
Red said on 13/May/15
This seems more reasonable than 6', he edged out Boreanz on bones and was taller than saffron burrows in a movie they were in almost 15 years ago.
Amaze said on 6/Apr/15
Rob he had a surgery recently and apparently hes been struggling how to walk
it was a spinal surgery and he had disc issues
do you think this has made him go shorter like 5 '11 in 180cm what you think
[Editor Rob: his height might have been effected a very small amount.]
Hypado said on 2/Mar/15
Freddie Prinze Jr height: 6ft 0.25in (183,5 cm)

A strong 183 and a weak 184 cm
James said on 11/Feb/15
If Freddie is around the 6ft mark he is for sure a strong 6ft guy like 183-184cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jan/15
184-185cm range at least.
184.3cm said on 5/Oct/14
I also just say 6ft to my English friends i mean who claims fractions unless someone really wants to know your exact height. I had this with a 6'1 guy who was beginning to doubt his own measurement at the doctors:)
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 1/Oct/14
I think he's over 6ft- 184 or so.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
So many 6ft1 guys are getting butchered on here. I think he's generalising with the "6 feet" statement.
James B said on 7/Sep/14
Rob do you think 6'0.5 could be possible for Freddie's height? Guys who are in the 6'0-6'1 range can just say "6ft" I mean look at john cena.

Like the poster said below Paul walker had 3cm tops on him so perhaps a solid 184cm for Freddie and 186-187cm for Paul Walker makes sense?
James B said on 1/Sep/14
Chris Kline is slightly taller so 6ft is accurate
184.9 on a bad day said on 21/Aug/14
Rob , do you still think Paul Walker was 6 ft 2 ? Paul Walker was 3 cm taller tops with this guy.
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1.5 was a possibility for his scene beside the height chart with maybe half inch footwear, it could be argued he was around that mark.]
the shredder said on 31/Jul/14
I was about to post his claim , Rob , Paul Walker mostly was his 6'1 claim.
James B said on 30/Jul/14
Shocked really i thought he was a legit 6'1 but next to randy Orton he didn't look 6'1 I guess.
kevin said on 28/Jul/14
he said in an recent interview that hes 6ft and kiefer sutherland is 5ft 4in.. which was joke but maybe hes closer to 6ft than 6ft 1in
[Editor Rob: I think I'll go with that 6ft claim]
Hypado said on 29/Jun/14
Freddie Prinze Jr 184/185cm
Edy91 said on 15/May/14
He does look this height. seems legit.
Gina said on 3/Jan/14
Freddie Prinze Jr. looks maybe five foot eleven. I totally know that he looks shorter than Matthew Lillard. I sure do wish that I know how tall Mr. Prinze Jr. is.
Salut said on 8/Oct/13
He looks to be 4 inches shorter than Matthew Lillard in this photo Click Here
He looks a solid 6'0.
Balrog said on 6/Feb/13
Seems a legit six one man.
R said on 4/Feb/13
he is 6 feet because his wife is 5'3 and she is to and above his shoulders in same shoes. Im 6'3 my mom is 5'7 and she is below my shoulders thats a 4 inch diff in women and only 2 in men he is 6 feet.
James said on 26/Oct/12
He looked slightly under 6ft next too randy Orton but I think that is just cause randy had on big wrestling boots
Hob said on 6/Aug/12
if he was 6'1 then matthew lillard is not under 6'4. yet rob had downgrade matthew by 0.5"
silent d said on 26/Dec/11
185cm. He said he would have been 6 foot 4 if he didn't suffer that back injury that stunted his growth.
JohnnyRB said on 18/Nov/11
He is not much taller than 5ft9 Jason Biggs in Boys and Girls.
jake, 1.82 m said on 2/Nov/11
McGinley: 6' 0.5" (1.84 m)
Prinze Jr: 6' 1" (1.85 m)
Reeves: 6' 0.75" (1.85 m)
Ledger: 6' 0.75" (1.85 m)
Klein: 6' 1" (1.85 m)
Costner: 6' 0.75" (1.85 m) now, a bit more peak.
LAN Jiao said on 6/Oct/11
John C Mcginley 6'0.25 (183cm) solid 183cm
Freddie Prince Jr 6'0.25 (183cm) maybe fraction more.
Keanu Reeves 6'0.25 (183cm) always good posture, no less or more.
Heath Ledger 6'0.25 (183cm) maybe more.
Chris Klien 6'0.25 (183cm) maybe more.

Kevin Costner 6'0.25 (183cm) evening. nevered lower. can look the tallest amount above guys.
jake, 1.82 m said on 29/Sep/11
This is a legit 6ft 1in guy.
Shaun said on 17/Sep/11
James says on 25/Nov/10
This is what i think for who is a legit 6'1 guy who is not.

John C Mcginley 6'1 (185cm)
Freddie Prince Jr 6'1 (185cm)
Keanu Reeves 6'0.5 (184cm)
Heath Ledger 6'0.5 (184cm)
Chris Klien 6'1 (185cm)
Kevin Costner 6'0 (183cm) (peak) 5'11.75 (182cm) now.

I agree James.
jake, 1.82 m said on 16/Sep/11
6ft1 minimum
LUCOSO said on 14/Sep/11
look like a giant betwen his friend in ''broklin rules'' and looks taller than swchwimmer my guess is 186
Hansen said on 25/Aug/11
5ft10.75? randy orton had wrestler lifts abit advantage than freddy wore and spoted more like 4inch in difference if randy straight up. i"ll say 6ft for FPJ, he always look 6ft and 6ft0.5 , easily 6ft1 morning.
James said on 14/Aug/11
with 192cm randy orton here looks 5'10.75. bad posture?

Alex said on 30/Jun/11
6'1" if he stopped slouching. in 24, he was only an inch or two taller than Kiefer Sutherland, only because Prinze was slouching. If he stood straight, 5'1" is possible
James said on 10/Jun/11
does look 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/May/11
Looks 185-186cm
Bon_ said on 4/Feb/11
Looks 183-184
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jan/11
Looks simliar to Paul Walker in She's All That.

Rob maybe 186cm?

[Editor Rob: I think the height he says is fair]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jan/11
Well 1.5 inches....Braff always had a good head of hair while McGinley had a shaved head... So it made it look like they were close in height. It could be Zach Braff at 5"11.75(182cm) and
John C. McGinley at 6"1.25(186cm)...McGinleys calling his height in shoes when he says 6"2
James said on 22/Dec/10
LOL 2 inches taller than Zach Braff? More like 1 inch. McGinley is barely 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/10
Chris Klein could be 186cm because he looked more than 2 inches taller than Sean William Scott...
McGinley is 186cm because he looked similiar to Forest Whitaker in Platoon and has looked 2 inches taller than 6"0 Zach Braff on Scrubs.
James said on 16/Dec/10
Rampage no way watch Nothing to Loose with 6'4.5 Tim Robbins Mcginley is looking no higher than 6'1 flat. In fact since that scene was filmed at nightime Mcginley was probably no more than 6'0.75. Chris Klien is also a legit 6'1 but watch American Pie he is no way over that mark.

Kevin Costner is the smallest out of all of them at 183cm. But your spot on hugh with your estimate for Ledger and Keanu Reeves there not really in the 6'1 club.

Chris Klien, Freddie Prince Jr ard John C McGinley are the only legit 6'1ers out of all of them.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/10
Kevin Costner and Freddie Prinze Jr are both 185cm or 6"1 flat
Chris Klien and John McGinley are 186-187cm or strong 6"1 guys...
Heath Ledger and Keanu Reeves are a little under 6"1 at 184-185cm
Mr. R said on 27/Nov/10
James, of all the guys you have mentioned, Freddie is the only one I have met in person. He is for sure 6-1.
James said on 25/Nov/10
This is what i think for who is a legit 6'1 guy who is not.

John C Mcginley 6'1 (185cm)
Freddie Prince Jr 6'1 (185cm)
Keanu Reeves 6'0.5 (184cm)
Heath Ledger 6'0.5 (184cm)
Chris Klien 6'1 (185cm)
Kevin Costner 6'0 (183cm) (peak) 5'11.75 (182cm) now.

Today Keanu would have roughly 1 inch on Kevin Costner. Freddie 1.5 on Costner today.
DMaN1528 said on 22/Nov/10
ya hes 6"1'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/10
Kevin Costner and Freddie Prinze Jr. would be evenly matched heightwise, maybe the latter would have a slight edge. I am coming around to the idea of Reeves being more of a weak 6"1 guy like 184-185cm.
James said on 25/Jun/07
Editor Rob
In the movie 'she's all that' looked at least 6f2???
George said on 22/May/07
Yeah Fred and I are good friends. We are exactly the same height.. 185cm, barefoot back to back.
kenny said on 13/Sep/06
standing next to 192 matthew lillard he looks 8..9cm shorter.. think should downgrade Freddie..1cm.. gave it 6ft0.5(184) sounds better..
CelebHeights Editor said on 1/Oct/05
Back in Instyle Magazine 2001 it mentioned he was 'miffed' at not being taller, "I fell off a roof and crushed my spine. The doctor said I should have been 6-foot-4.".
Josh said on 27/Aug/05
That´s right Freddie is a solid 6'1 , in his website he gets listed 6'2 maybe with shoes on.
David said on 4/Mar/05
Saw Freddie Prinze and Sarah Michelle Gellar at Gelsons in Encino. She looked very thin in person, and pretty short. I'm 5'10, and saw her kissing freddy just a few feet away. He was definately around 6'1. He looked taller in person than on film
Mr R said on 14/Feb/05
Saw him at Opening Day at Dodger Stadium. I walked past him as he waited for the elevator. He is truly 6'1".
