@Canson yeah I look young so most people think I’m younger I’m 23 now. But I stopped growing at 17/18 maybe gained a small fraction since I’m talking half an inch. I definetly could have grown more had I slept more while in HighSchool and had a better diet. I was getting like 2-3 hours of sleep between the ages of 15-18 so who knows maybe I could have ended up 5’11 range if not 6’0. And honestly I wouldn’t care I would take waking up at 6’0 and ending the day at 5’11.25” or whatever that’s a good height. Yeah rounding in my case is fair and maybe once you reach over 6’0 one might be included to round down a half not .75 that would be rounded up usually. I know what you mean by inflations and such because I constantly have guys usually within +/- an inch of my height trying to say I’m their exact height. Usually results in going back to back but even then they are still in disbelief, unfortunately don’t have a tape with me. The inflations put you in a weird spot because even if you claim honestly they try to dispute you and say you’re not x height or they are x height because they where measured at this and you have no idea what you are talking about. As I described on the general forum my friend is no more than 5’9 and he claims 5’11/ has it on his DL. Once he inflated both me and him to 5’11/6’0 to our 6’3 friend who didn’t notice because we where sitting down. He never comes across tallish always average I know for a fact he wouldn’t measure 5’10 let alone 5’11 I’m sure he measured in boots and rounded up or just got a bs claim and goes by it. I called him out and he said he was my height, now I remember 2 months ago he told me that I looked 6’0, and since he holds onto that 5’11 claim I must have appeared at least an inch taller had he said that so how could I have gone from being an inch taller to an inch shorter in his mind, My friends don’t understand the logic in comparing for instance going back to back on carpet and using a pool cue to judge height. I told him if they really want to do this “let’s go to a flat surface and use a can against the wall method “ since we don’t have a stadiometer. And I would know If someone was actually a legit 5’11 because they would edge me it or appear close to it and if they where 5’10 range they would be my height likely he is 5’9-5’9.25 there abouts and that’s a generous estimate. He was like “I’m not 5’9 my friend is 5’9 and I’m taller” I know the guy he was talking about he actually looked identically within a fraction of the guy who might not even be the full 5’9. We decided to put money on me being an inch taller than him so this should be interesting haha. Little do they know I’m height aware and a frequent visitor of celeb heights. What’s funny was a couple of my friends claimed to see us back to back and say we where exactly the same, however they don’t realize an inch isn’t that big of a difference and when I turned around I took my hand from the top of my head to his and went right over his head. Plus my eye level is about 5’6 which usually yields 5’10-5’11 his is like almost 5’5ish so more 5’9 range if he was my height we would be eye to eye. Plus in the mirror when we where working out in same footwear I noticed my head was over his but anyways You can’t argue with these people.

@Christian: I see what you’re saying that it’s undervalued but people continuing to lie only makes it worse imho. I think for guys that size maybe splitting it is fair enough and saying 5’10 1/2 is fine if you desire meaning if Greg dips to 5’10.25 at a low and only because just like a 5’10.25 and a 5’10 look the same so will a 5’10.25 and a 5’10.5. Plus at that range you’re right most will want to be taller so he would actually never be called out on that as lying up. But that’s where the parity is once over 6’0” don’t see it necessary to round. That’s why like for me or you both wake up 6’5 and 6’6 respectively but I feel more in line with a 6’4 and am happy with that height vs claiming 6’5” especially since I don’t measure it for more than maybe 10-15 minutes in the AM. When I measured this morning I was 195.7 out of bed and was down to 194.8 after an hour of being awake. Then now at 6.5 hours out of bed was 194 flat. I didn’t lounge around or anything tho and made sure I didn’t recline or anything and just sat in a regular chair upright when we ate breakfast etc.

A lot of my rationale with not claiming higher at my size tho has to do with how I get when someone inflates me I can be pretty annoyed so I don’t want to do it to someone taller if I claimed 6’5” then a legit 6’5 guy I would be forcing him to claim 6’5 1/2 or 6’6” etc. maybe forcing isn’t the right word but putting them in an awkward situation which is what people do to others when they lie. And I know very few 6’5” guys that actually want to be taller. I even have a 6’5” friend your size that won’t claim anything above 6’5”. He just says he’s 6’5 even tho he’s strong 6’5 too. So I do it out of fairness as one I don’t see a claim as being very important in the grand scheme of things as it’s just a way for people to psych themselves out and There is no added incentive for me to claim taller at any height let alone 6’4”.

my definition is like Rob describes them too. Someone who is .25 up to maybe half at a low or near the low. I think once you’ve surpassed half you can say weak but in my case or yours honestly (not sure how you feel about a roundup on yours) but at my height 6’4.5 I would be content not rounding up to 6’5 same with 6’5.5 for sure as I wouldn’t want to round up to 6’6. If I were like 6’4.75 I’d be okay with 6’5 then but 6’5” is the max height In my honest opinion that is still good. Probably right where you are is about as tall as one could be firmly into 196 but still closer to 6’5 at a low.

@Greg: tbh though it really wouldn’t matter unless you’re 6’0” at your lowest or maybe close to it like 5’11.5 or so. At 22 you likely have stopped growing (I thought you were more like 20). But at that age you probably won’t gain much unless maybe 1/8” and get to where you don’t go below 3/8. If you got a 1/4” that would be like Christian said roundable and you could comfortably be in the middle or even closer if a mm above it
Greg said on 25/Jan/18
@Christian-6'5 3/8's To be truthful I wish I was 6'0 at any part of the day, so even if I woke up at 6'0 and got down to 5'11.25" at my lowest I wouldn't mind. But no I am a weak 5'11, weak for me is someone who wakes at or over the mark and drops down. On celeb heights I specify I drop down to about 5'10.25" by the end of the day, but in real life nobody really cares what you claim only on this forum will people try to dictate your claims. I guess everyone thinks I'm young and still growing because of my babyface. lol Im 22 man. I've rounded down to 5'10 before, even said 5'10.5 but usually say 5'11, nobody calls me out especially because my proportions work out in my favor plus I love wearing thicker footwear. But even in thinner Footwear I can make my claim work. Btw they are undervalued because as you may know many guys around my height or shorter want to say 6'0.. I have no issue with somebody rounding up a half inch but if you barely clear 5'9 and tell me you're 6 feet there's a major problem with that.
@5'11er Nice and oh cool Finish, yeah I could have sworn you would be British oops xD

@Psychedelic Earth 187 Unfortunately I am not going to be shooting up, I am 22 been done growing since about 18.. Perhaps in my dreams that would be awesome though.

@Canson Yeah well I am honest, people did try to tell me what to do but I just laughed it off lol. Some of those few posters don't even visit this site anymore.. Ex:Michael R, CD, MM, German 176cm... God did I hate Michael R he was annoying af.. Arthur, apparently came back for one day and immediately left.
Ben said on 16/Jan/18
Canson, I claim 5'10" in public tho
Ben said on 16/Jan/18
Canson, 3 months ago I was 5'10.25" at my low and 5'11" in the morning. I'm not sure either why they attacked me, I think it was because I didn't use the same type of tape that Rob is using... but now I've provided them enough evidence (Measuring myself with the tape that Rob uses etc) that it is basically imposssible to say I lie about my height.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 16/Jan/18
Canson: Yeah I could see Greg shooting up like 8mms over the next 2 years.

Christian: yeah 5’11” is a great height. They get guesses at 6’-6’2”.
Especially rowan Atkinson, I Watched that guy in English class and he looked like a giant.

^^I respect your guys opinions that 175cm is still the average height. But imho it’s near 2020 and 5’9” hasn’t been average since the 1980’s-early 2000s.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 16/Jan/18
@Canson

I don't really blame Greg for claiming his morning height of 5'11" especially because we know that 5'10"-5'11" is undervalued in society due to people claiming higher than they really are. And you're right, since he's still young he could grow a bit and could no longer drop under 5'10.5" mathematically making him nearer to 5'11".
Canson said on 15/Jan/18
@Psychedlic earth187 and Christian: Greg actually has said before he does. He mentioned coming down to like 5’10 1/2 or 5’10 3/8 some days. I remember about 6-12 months ago people gave Him Bobby and Ben a lot of crap for being under marks and significantly rounding and claiming as true heights. Now Greg has always been honest tho and said he claims his morning height. Not sure why they attacked Ben. Bobby really only gets it because he considers himself a legit 5’10” and makes excuses. I didn’t know Greg dipped that low tho either. May be because hes younger and growth plates still open so may grow still a touch
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 13/Jan/18
Same here Christian, not sure why he’s been claiming his morning height for such a long time.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 13/Jan/18
@Greg

I didn't know you drop down to 178.5cm. I always thought you're a weak 5'11", like 179-179.5cm. I guess you're a strong 5'10" then.
Isaac Hamilton said on 11/Jan/18
He does not look taller than Ian and I think his hair just gives an illusion that he's taller.
5'11"-er said on 5/Jan/18
@Psychedelic Earth 187
@Greg my morning height is always a consistent 181 cm give or take. I noticed I don’t shrink much throughout the day (well hydrated spinal discs? Who knows). The most I’ve ever shrunk was back in the army. I was measured around 179,5 cm on my third day and the first days were pretty brutal. Early mornings and carrying a 40kg rucksack on my back for several hours took a heavy toll on my stature.

@Greg I’m from Finland by the way. Was I giving off British vibes in my earlier messages haha? :D
Greg said on 2/Jan/18
@5'11er lucky, I wake up at 180 and by the end of the day drop to about 178.5 more or less. I wish I ended up a strong 5'11 or 6 feet. You probably wake up at 182cm if you're lowest height is 5'10.75" you would edge me out in person. I see you're also from the U.K. Nice.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 27/Dec/17
5'11"-er, oh, so you must wake up a strong fraction over 181 in the mornings right? Like 181.8.

But yeah you’re 180 most of the day and are 5’11”.
5'11"-er said on 25/Dec/17
@Psychedelic Earth 187
Last week I woke up at 6am and spent the entire day at uni after which I went out with my mates and didn’t come back until around midnight and it’s safe to say at that point I had reached my lowest possible evening height. I measured myself using an aerosol spray just like Rob does and I got 179,7 cm. Usually by dinner time / 5 pm I measure around 180,(0-3) cm.

Telling people I’m 5’10,91111.......” can get a bit tiring after a while which is why I just say 5’11” :D
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 17/Dec/17
@5'11er, sorry buddy, we go by dinnertime heights and unless you have a very short thin waist, you may very well drop to 179(5'10.5") by dinnertime.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 16/Dec/17
@Greg, @5’11”-er would be 180-181 hence his nickname. He probably is 182-183 in the mornings.
5'11"-er said on 16/Dec/17
@Greg I’m 181 cm in the morning

Ian and Paul seem to be wearing thick heeled boots all the time while Nathaniel is always wearing flat sneakers like converse, which give max 1,5 cm of extra height.
Greg said on 15/Dec/17
@5'11"-er How tall are you exactly? what's your morning height. Interestingly enough I came across a picture with Somerhalder Wesley and Nathan Buzlic, Nathan is listed at 5'11 but in the photo looked like he just edged out the others. So one of the listings seems off, doubt the others had footwear advantage over him.
5'11"-er said on 1/Dec/17
Rob, how come he looks way taller on TV and in photos next to other people? Like he’s the tallest 5’10” guy I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to imagine I actually have an inch on him.
Cameron said on 20/Jul/17
Textbook 5'10"
even said on 17/Jul/17
exactly 5 foot 10
Smoshian said on 11/Jun/17
What are the chances of him being 0,5-1 inch taller? I mean, his posture seems pretty laid back in most photos I've seen. Do you reckon he could clear the 5'10,5" mark after a wee back-stretch?
Editor Rob: a little over 5ft 10, but a full 5ft 10.5 I just don't think he'd be that height during daytime.
berta said on 14/Dec/16
i thought both him and ial somerhalder was in the 175 range. this is the tallest i can see him
Garret said on 10/Dec/16
Rob how tall is the guy who plays Enzo in the show?
MJKoP said on 29/Oct/16
Am I the only one to notice how much he looks like an older, taller Bieber?!?!?!
Editor Rob: I would never have thought that, although I can see a little bit now.
Tiago said on 10/Oct/16
He is 5'11 FT equal Joseph Morgan !
Mike said on 5/Aug/16
Rob i feel like your to obsessed with height. Like you make almost everyone seem shorter. And you say that its always somehow fake when someone grows taller. Like the grow taller guru, (lance ward). He had tested it on many and it varied. Some grew alot some grew a bit. But you that one guy that grew from 6 foot to 6 2 he seemed like he actually grew when standing beside lance.
Andrea said on 3/Aug/16
If you didn't know Josh measured himself in the 178 range, what would you have given to him? 5'10.25? 5'10.5? Which are those celebrities that looked very similar to him in person?
Editor Rob: in person he was a solid 5ft 10 range, quite similar to casper van dien looked.
Andrea said on 3/Aug/16
Rob, did he look similar to Josh in person? Josh looks taller to me but it could be worse posture...
Josh told me he was "afraid" to be 5'9 but he certainly doesn't look any less than 178-179 range!
Editor Rob: I would have guessed Josh exactly as he measured and Paul barefoot would likely be not over 5ft 10, but Paul generally isn't a guy with the greatest posture, he can look shorter than Ian at a lot of convention photos but in reality Somerhalder standing about on his own has great posture.
Ronny said on 2/Aug/16
Rob im pretty sure you wear some shoe lifters, because i cant see myself an inch and a half taller than this guy.
Editor Rob: well it's good to question things.

If I did wear elevators or lifts why would I not mention it? Why would I miss out an opportunity to promote/link to Dons directly underneath the photo?

I'm wearing Merrell sneakers that weekend, roughly around 0.7 inch...
Grant said on 16/May/16
Do you think he had a bad sleep when you met him because he struggles with 5'10 next to you but in other pictures he looks taller
Editor Rob: Wesley did look a 5ft 10 guy, I doubt he's any shorter.
mr.rashid said on 22/Sep/15
[Editor Rob: he may be the upper end of the range near 5ft 11.]

What do u mean? Strong or weak 5'11?
[Editor Rob: I think I'd need to look more at him to tell, at times he can look 179 then other times I think he can appear 180 range comfortably!]
mr.rashid said on 19/Sep/15
[Editor Rob: not seen any recent (last 2 seasons) of that show so not up to speed, but he looks somewhere in 5ft 10 range]

Rob, he clearly looks nothing as low as 5'10"?!!!

he looks an easy 6ft range next to David Gyasi (Who u met)
Click Here

Although he doesnt look over 1.5 inches on Paul Wesley
Click Here

looks close to Grant Gustin Click Here

but looks shorter than Matt Davis Click Here

and same height as Austin Butler Click Here

he could actually look anywhere from 5'11"-6" range
[Editor Rob: he may be the upper end of the range near 5ft 11.]

Isn't he a little bit closer to 5'11 he looks similar to 6'0 chris meloni on law and order and that was in his younger years
Ondria said on 14/Jul/15
Could you add chris wood to the website? It's very difficult to estimate his height based on the show he looks smaller than ian and sometimes taller.. What would you put chris woods at?
Clint said on 16/May/15
Are the heights recorded here on barefoot or on a 1 inch shoe, cos i don't know how you guys measure, am 6 on barefoot but 6'1 while out on shoes6'1 most times. But with my boots i get to 6'2
[Editor Rob: barefoot heights we think of and list.]
Matt said on 17/Feb/15
Rob, how tall do you think Chris Wood is who plays the villain Kai on TVD at the moment? Any estimation?
[Editor Rob: not seen any recent (last 2 seasons) of that show so not up to speed, but he looks somewhere in 5ft 10 range]
TMS said on 12/Feb/15
Rob if my morning height scrapes 5'11 and my evening height is roughly 5''10-5'10.25 what is the highest I could claim? I'm similar to paul in this regard.
[Editor Rob: I believe Wesley drops to around 5ft 10ish by afternoon, you could probably claim 5ft 10.5 yourself.]
CF said on 21/Jan/15
Rob, he really doesn't look that much taller than you. Don't you think he should be listed as 5'9.5?
[Editor Rob: he looked about 5ft 10 from the times I seen him, I didn't think he was just 5ft 9.5 - we actually were only ones in the room at the time of that double photo with lauren so had a bit longer seeing him.]
kayla said on 12/Jan/15
he's gotta be at least 5 10.5 if somerhalder is 5 9.25 they often look similar at beginning of TVD probably b/c Somerhalder is wearing lifts but as series progresses height difference becomes more apparent as Somerhalder stops wearing lifts

Derek said on 27/Nov/14
Hey Rob, what's your final decision on his exact height?
[Editor Rob: I think I'd stick with as close to 5ft 10 as possible, give or take a small amount. I'd rule out 179 and 177]
Jack said on 4/Oct/14
Rob, do you think Paul is even 5'11 with shoes on?
[Editor Rob: yes I think he looked about 5ft 10 in person, or near enough to that mark, so with 1 inch shoe near 5ft 11 mark.]
Bran said on 9/Aug/14
Well Rob, being straight with you no bs HRG photo's confirms one of the lsitings is incorrect, and im sure it isnt Wesley. Maybe Haynes has wore lifts on occasions and fooled you a little. I know the odd photo isnt the be all and end all but only 1.5 inch there ?
[Editor Rob: colton can lok 5ft 8 flat aswell at times]

Hey Rob, here's a picture of Paul Wesley and Colton Haynes : Click Here

How big where her heels or how much height would they give her?
[Editor Rob: Thick beasts, you'd get at least 4 inches of actual height from them, maybe a bit more as she looked a bit taller than Wesley as I mentioned.]

What a handsome guy paul is(im straight by the way just making a compliment) rob is spot on with heights as usual id say paul is exactly 178cm no more no less.

177cm.
Joshua said on 17/Feb/13
He is definitely 177 or 178 cms not more.

considering he had bigger shoes he looks more like a strong 5'9 to weak 5'10 (176cm-177cm)

He seems a little taller than the 0.75' given on the site over Ian.

Funny how Jenny looks 5'9.5 on the bottom pic
[Editor Rob: she's standing normally, whilst Paul dropped some height so I dropped height to match :)

and in the top shot I'm standing better than I was in the bottom and jenny is standing a bit worse.]
Jayma said on 20/Aug/12
Dan - I think, based on the heights Rob has for Paul and Ian, Daniel Gillies is around 5'9, as he is shorter than the other three in Vampire Diaries and not much taller than 5'7 Erica Durance on Saving Hope. Daniel looks a lot taller than his wife, Rachael Leigh Cook in all their photos, as she's a petite 5'2. I would guess Joseph is around 5'10 - 5'10.5, depending on the size of his heels.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Aug/12
They arent much visible, anyway they give 12 cms in your opinion? I didnt know there were heels that gave so much height, i thought that heels gave max 11 cms over your height!
[Editor Rob: those might be around 11cm, the front platform bit was nearly 5cm. Sure you can get 12cm heels aswell, ones Like the 6.5 inch on here are the kind that definitely give you 12cm actual height, even though they are being called 16cm heels]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Aug/12
How can Laura be taller than Paul? Paul must be 180-181 in those shoes, Laura must be wearing heels who give 12 cms? You said that heels usually give max 11 cms...
[Editor Rob: they were massive shoes that day, Look at the platform on them.

I walked by her the following day and she looked around 5ft 7 range (and was wearing like a 1.25-.5 boot I think).]
Dan said on 17/Jun/12
it must be some pretty thick boots they wear, if Daniel Gillies and Joseph Morgan are 5'11 cos both men seem shorter than Ian Somerholder and Paul Wesley, whenever there on the show, Rob, how tall do you think Daniel and Joseph are?
Realm2008 said on 11/Feb/12
He looks identical in height to Ian a lot. I wouldn't give him more then 5'9".
Godred said on 11/Dec/11
@Ivona - Maybe but he`s nothing over 5`10.The other guy`s 5`9,so it still works.

Rob do you think 5ft10 Is the max for Paul Wesley or could he be over it?
[Editor Rob: I think he's around 178...but 179cm? His hairstyle can add some height to him for sure!]
MD said on 28/Aug/11
I'm telling you, he's the shortest looking 5'10" I've ever seen, that's for sure. lol

Watch smallville episode with him! He looks a midget next to Tom! 178 is his max
Big T said on 10/Aug/11
Somerhalder must've been wearing like 4 inch shoes then because Wesley was clearly shorter wearing mega boots. A good video to check out if you can be bothered.
Big T said on 8/Aug/11
Rob, I'm just watching them present an award at the Teen Choice Awards and Somerhalder is clearly taller, probably by an inch, and Wesley is wearing some seriously big shoes. The listings for these two here are not possible.

Nina is about 5'5"-5'6", and Paul is 5'10". Ian is 5'9"ish. There isn't anything to question anyway. Height isn't really that important, as long as you're not that short or tall. People look at your features, and your personality the most. No cares exactly how tall you are.

lol bambi there are a lot of things that chicks dig, height is one of them but not the only thing and certainly not the most important thing every time. money, cars, looks, personality, and i dunno .. penis size? if height was the only thing chicks loved about guys, we wouldn't have people under 6' ANNND tom cruise wouldn't have been able to get someone as hot/tall as nicole kidman or katie holmes.

and sorry i meant it wrong 195cm isn't a freak height but its in the realm of looking awkward and lanky no matter how much muscle mass you have, very few people at 6'4+ look well proportioned and agile. thats why model agencies have height limitations of 6'2 and requirement of 5'11, 6'3+ most of the time body wise don't look that good and they get listed down to 6'2 if they're over.

bausse, that is short. Chicks ♥ taller guys; fact.
And 195cm isn't a freak height, it's hawttt.

Paul is quite short, standing at 176cm, I believe he is below average height in america, Elijah on the other hand, is handsome and taller, he is 188cm

---------------------------------------------

nah, 175cm-178cm is in the mid-high spectrum of average - still average though. and Daniel Gillies who plays Elijah is 5'11 = 180cm not 188cm. i'll tell you this much though, i'd rather be 180cm and have good proportions than be some freak height like 195cm. PS. I seriously doubt you've met him let alone had the time to ask about his height. He's a teen heart throbe where girls everywhere are flocking to him why would he take out the time to answer some random question about his height. ^^

I think Caro has it right, actually.
Caro said on 8/Apr/11
People, Nina is 5'6 or 5'7 for sure and with her heels she would be something like 5'10 or more so look the difference between nina with heels and Paul

i've just seen the first episode of the vampire diaries. the thing to judge his height on are his shoes - at least 5 cm heels. would a 5'10''-6'0 guy wear those? i do not think so. even in those he is max as tall as somerhalder.
Menace 195cm said on 26/Feb/11
He is 176cm no more no less , i asked him when i met him in Sydney.
Leung said on 22/Feb/11
Rob, I can't understand why you have Wesley listed 2cm taller than Somerhalder. I have watched most episodes of Vampire Diaries and they are fairly equal in height, and if there was any difference I believe Somerhalder would be the one with the slight height advantage.
5'10" for Wesley is wrong.

Jenny,

Not sure if I see that one has a longer body than the other. In fact, they look pretty much around the same build (maybe even generally the same weight). But, what you're right on is the head. Paul has a longer head, for sure, whereas Ian's face is more square-shapped.
JennyJ said on 19/Feb/11
Allow me to clear out the deal of who is taller between Ian and Paul. If you see Ian has a longer body than Paul, just take a look at their shoulders and you will see Ian's shoulders taller than Paul's; but the thing is Paul has a big head and Ian a small one, so as Paul has a bigger head, he can reach the height of Ian. But if you imagine Paul with a head the size of Ian's, Ian would be definetely taller and it would happen the same if you imagine Ian with a head as big as Paul's. And for proving this:

Just saw him on George Lopez and looks shorter than Lopez who is listed as 5'10 here

Paul is 5'10.75", he needs an upgrade. He is a model of course he needs to be above 5'10" right?
Pete said on 31/Jan/11
Both of these guys theem wear huge lifts. I think Paul is probably 1/2 inch taller than Ian who's 5 ft 9.25 in lifts.
Courtney said on 10/Jan/11
"MD" Ian Somerhalder is 5'9 1/2, So I'm pretty sure this is accurate, and there is a slight height difference between the two.
MD said on 13/Dec/10
Are you not looking at the pictures? And, the boots issue has absolutely no relevance if both are in them. Obviously, they are both the same height within a quarter-of-an-inch. Either Paul is closer to 5'9" or Ian is closer to 5'10". There is not a near-inch difference in their height, Rob.
John said on 13/Dec/10
If I look at the pictures MD posted, I have to say...Paul Welsey is wearing the bigest shoelifts I've ever seen. His posture looks as if he is standing on the tip of his toes. The curve of his shoes has also a very sharp angle. I don't know how tal the guy is, but he desperately wants to look a lot taller than he really is.
MD said on 13/Dec/10
Rob,

With 5'9"ish Ian Somerholder, and in similar footwear, no less, with Paul maybe even having the advantage:

And here's another:

These two are basically the same height, and that's more in the 5'9" range than the 5'10" range. Needless to say, you at least need to bring down his height to that of Somerhalder's.

[Editor Rob: both of them wear decent sized boots on their show, I still think paul is the taller out of them both]
