That year I did 44 [parachute] jumps and it must have done something for me. I was 4 feet 6 inches tall when I graduated high school. I'm 5-foot-2 now.

He's taller than me, I'm only 5ft nothing. I'm known online as mighty midget or shrinkydinks.

To be as short as Paul Williams is a serious handicap for a man. People just don't take you seriously at that critical time of life from seventeen to about twenty-two, when you're developing your adult personality. You can't get girls to go out with you, for one thing. You have no chance in a fight, and even weak guys can pick on you and get away with it. You're conscious of your height in the same way that obese people are conscious of their weight.
I'm six foot four (at least), and there is certainly a "tall privilege." Tall girls will all at least give you a look, no matter how otherwise inappropriate as a consort you are. You can bluff your way out of a fistfight just by snarling at people, and you quickly learn that you can't show anger like other people because you scare people when you're angry. I've had at least ten short guys tell me how badly they wished they were tall.
Tall in a man is not like being good-looking, but it's close. It's not like being strong, exactly, but it's a subset of being strong, because you can lift heavy stuff because of the length of your spine. When people describe you to people who haven't met you, "tall" is always the first adjective they use. If Albert Einstein had been six foot four, people would have described him as "that tall guy." rather than "that smart guy."

I was 28 when the first post was posted now I'm 41...
In that time Paul's height might have went down by 1/2 inch or so.

He was on Fast N Loud recently. I am not sure how tall Richard Rawlings is but he towered over Paul Williams.

Does anyone know why he is so short? He played a 12-year-old kid when he was 25, so there's obviously a growth/aging issue.

Aargh, I was looking for the freak of nature Paul Williams, the 6'1 welterweight boxer with a wingspan of more then 210 cm...

I design Paul's web site. He is probably one of the most humble/down-to-earth person I know.

Yea, Paul's a really short guy. I've always heard 5'2", as well. But, hey, he's done all right for himself.
