Damn, thought he would be around 1.80 meters plus considering that's how tall I imagine Frank Heffley would be lol. But yeah this actor is clearly on the shorter side and nothing wrong with being so. He gets 5'7 from me.

I do like Steve as the cheeky young prankster, having a laugh at some psychotic driver's expense with his tall bruv, Paul Walker, in 'Joy Ride'!
Wasn't the guy on the receiving end young once, the boring old fart? Alas, he doesn't share the boys' sense of humour! 😝
Stevie-boy gets 5ft7.25.

So would a 171 cm man be 169 cms at night?

What would you say his head length is, Rob?
Editor Rob: Headman, big Steve has a top-heavy head, so his eyelevel to skull is at least the same as eye-chin (possibly a tad more in fact)...so 9-9.25 range I'd have guessed.

I swear I didn't laughing at the typo...well, maybe a little.
Could you update his credits "American actor best known for Out of Sight, Forces of Nature, You've Got Mail, Safe Men, Happy, Texas, Joy Ride, Rescue Dawn, Sahara, Natianal Security and Diary of a Wimpy Kid"?
[Editor Rob: not so much what you'd call a typo, but a description that made sense in early 2005 :)]

Rob you might want to remove the last comment, that's overstepping the mark I think!
[Editor Rob: the odd spelling mistake is quite forgiveable.]

A 2.5 inch difference with Tony Shaloub is believable from the episode of Monk that guest starred Zahn.

Shorter than Martin Lawrence , 5'7 at best

I was watching a Friends episode last night with Steve's character and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) in a few scenes together. They looked about 3-4 inches apart. Of course, Lisa, an alleged 5-8 women, might have been wearing heels of 2 inches. So I think Steve's height would be more like 5'6.75, or slightly below 170cm.

Watch Saving Silverman. Couple inches taller than jack black.

i think 5'7 or 5'8 is right about steve..what about zachary gordon or "greg" off of diary of a wimpy kid..cause i know he is growing fast because of puberty
steven said on 19/Jan/12
he had tendency to wear thick looking shoes. had a short face does't look 5'7.5 , he is around 5'6.

Leelee was a little taller than him. Paul walker was much taller than him. 5 foot 8 is about right. I don't think he is any taller.
the dude said on 17/Nov/11
Dunno.. 5'7 seems low for him. after watching him in Joy Ride, I think he's at LEAST 5'8". The supposedly tallish Paul Walker (6'3") and LeeLee Sobieski(5'10") don't dwarf him like they should. He's either wearing some massive lifts or is in need of an upgrade.
leonari said on 23/Dec/10
I also say 5'8. Watched "Joyride" couple of days ago. Paul Walker who is 6'2 didn't dwarf him...

He looked about 2 inches taller than jack black in saving silverman...I think 5'7 is right on.

In Sahara Steve Zahn in slippers looked 1 inch shorter than the 5ft3 Penelope Cruz on 1 inch heels, before taking the boat ride up river. Also, in one episode in Friends when Steve was the `gay` ice-skater and husband of Phoebe, he was much shorter than the 5ft8 Lisa Kudrow. If this is true, he is significantly shorter than 5ft 7.25 inch.

In sahara he was like same height as 5 foot 3 penelope cruz and 10cm shorter than 5 foot 11 matthew mcconouhay. In national security, he is taller than martin lawrence by an inch or two. In joy ride he was towered by 6 foot 2 paul walker. I would say he's 5 foot 7 and a bit maybe even 5 foot 8.

LeeLee Sobieski towers him in Night Train. I'm unsure of her footwear in that film though. When she walks it sounds like she might be wearing heels.
leonari said on 11/Nov/08
he is 5'7" or a tad more 171 is perfect
anonymous said on 11/Nov/08
In riding in cars with boys, he was taller than drew barrymore by 10cm. She is 158cm. So he is max 170cm.
Kari said on 27/Jun/08
I just saw him at the zoo this weekend and he actually looks taller and thinner in person that on the screen.
bensonhurst said on 23/Dec/07
met steve, he was wearing cowboy boots and i'd say he's a good 5'7 barefoot.
James said on 16/Sep/07
Ok, I just watched Bandidas and he barely stood over both Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek. In one scene he was standing right next to Salma and he wasn't even a half a inch taller. Although she was in figure skates which id say give about 3 inches. Which would make her about 5'5 (if that) So how is this guy over 5'7?
Emily said on 3/Sep/07
Uhhh...I don't know. He does seem kinda short. He looks like he would be the same hight as my dad who is 5'7. I don't think He's quite 5'9.

He didn't look taller than Martin Lawrence really, in National Security
oc said on 5/Aug/06
they've all got him listed as 5'9". I've just seen joyride where he's acting with paul walker who's 6'3" and he did look like the 5'9" they are giving him!
Joe said on 28/Feb/06
I'd say he is just about 5'8, maybe just under that though.
sf said on 3/Jan/06
No WAY is he 5'7"! He's just too short in too many things. 5'5"? Maybe 5'6".
5'9" - now that's a laugh!
Marc said on 2/Jan/06
I had no idea he was so short, but 5'7" seems right. Next to jack black in saving silverman he had at most 1.5".
said on 20/Oct/05
Hmm, from GreenCine:
"To reverse a cliché, Steve Zahn looks taller in person than he does on screen. But at 5' 9" he looks bigger than I expected, as if the camera has been playing him down all this time, the better to make him the short kooky sidekick of the tall, handsome leading man"
TN said on 1/Sep/05
In SAHARA, he is standing next to penelope cruz, who is lusted at 5'4" and they were practically both the same height
EJ said on 15/Mar/05
In National Security it was hard to tell whether Zahn or Martin Lawrence was taller; 5'7" sounds about right then.
Jack Black said on 13/Mar/05
I think he was the same height with Jack Black in Saving Silverman I'd say that he is 5 ft 6 in. http://cache.gettyimages.com/thumb/51040252.jpg?x=x&a=51040252&b=editorial_na&t=1 and http://cache.gettyimages.com/thumb/51040255.jpg?x=x&a=51040255&b=editorial_na&t=1
It is kinda hard to say from these pics, but I am pretty damn sure that he is not even an inch taller than Jack.
