One day you notice you've been wearing the same sizes several years in a row, and you realize, "I guess I'm done. This is who I am. Five foot ten, and not an inch more. I'm 5' 10", 9.5 shoe. Forever. That's who I am.

I agree with Rob. Maybe 5'9 range in Whiplash?
I do think paul has lost a bit of height and yeah in recent years an average 5ft 9

Very small man, same height as Helen hunt, just saw them on mad about you n both were in socks n same height, no way he was ever tall, check it out, just another short actor

He doesn't look that tall on Stranger Things. I would guess him at 5'7.75" or weak 5'8" rather than 5'9.75"
Editor Rob: he looked over 5ft 9 in 80's and now maybe under 5ft 9 a bit.

I doubt Paul is nearing the 5ft10 mark, but then the 2 of his films that immediately come to mind are 'Aliens', where there is a 6ft
leading lady and 'One Night at McCools', which has Liv Tyler gallivanting about in extremely high heels and looking as though she could easily spit on his head! (Liv tops 6ft in such shoes.)
Come to think of it, I don't think Paul is any more than 5ft8. It's a shame Rob doesn't have a picture of the 2 of them. I doubt if there would be any height difference and if one would be a bit taller, my money would be on Mr Paul rather than Paul!

Rob he looked over 3 inches under Miles Teller in Whiplash

Nah, I'm thinking he is closer to 5'8''. Eddie Murphy has a little on him, and I don't even think he is a full 5'10''.

If he is 5'10, why is he the same height as Helen hunt which is 5'7

Hi everyone,I just saw another episode in which Paul was driving a car with Helen Hunt, Helen was actually a little taller than him in the car.I think its a safe guess he wears lifts especially since it appears his upper body is quite small.Maybe 5ft 7 in.tall is my guess.

he is most likely 5ft 7, his upper torso is same height as helen hunt when they sit side by side. and i noticed he appears to be wearing ackward lifts. looked like he was walking downhill
Gregg Richards said on 14/Jan/16
He wears lifts he is 5ft7in approx same height as co star Helen Hunt.I saw an episode where they both were in socks.Also noticed in an episode which showed them sitting down and both were same height.

Never looked short or small I thought always figured he was a 5'9 guy, but 5'10 does sound right because I seen a few scenes from a movie where he and Peter Falk play a father and son and if Peter Falk is 5'6 than the height difference would make Paul right around 5'10, in that film he does not seem that short over 5'9.

Just saw Bye-Bye Love which stars Paul with Matt Modine who is listed at 6' 3.25" here. There are a few scenes with them in full shots talking. Doesn't seem to add up. Also stars Randy Quaid who is very tall. Seeing all 3 together in certain scenes leads me to believe he is shorter.

He sure doesn't look more than two inches taller than Helen Hunt on "Mad About You."

I agree with Rob's 177cm estimate, though I think 174-175cm is a possibility
sf said on 19/Jul/06
I am surprised he admits to 5'10" but I beliee it. I actually might have gone 5'11" just compared to Helen Hunt from "Mad About You."
He may actually be one actor who actually listed his real height...

I always thought he was 5-8ish too.never really studied him or met him.judging by Aliens,I guess a couple of us were wrong.
Editor Rob said on 17/Jul/06
In his book couplehood he rambled on about height...
"one day you notice you've been wearing the same sizes several years in a row, and you realize, "I guess I'm done. This is who I am. Five foot ten, and not an inch more. I'm 5' 10", 9.5 shoe. Forever. That's who I am..."

5"10?! Is he really? I ALWAYS thought he was shorter than that!
TNTinCA said on 5/Apr/06
I recall that scene as well. She did not tower over him by three inches. It was a smaller difference in height. So with Weaver being 5'11", I can see 5'10" for Paul. But like Rob said, depends on the footwear.
[Editor Rob: weaver did still look 182cm in that film...]
Elio said on 5/Apr/06
Did he look 5'10 next to sigourney weaver though? I recall him looking some 3 inches shorter. I'll need to check their scenes again... particularly the one where she discovers his character was the cause of the alien ship being discovered by the terraformers.
[Editor Rob: I know the first scene they had, she still looked taller...but maybe only had socks on, I'd need to check...]
