A lot of people would be surprised to know how many men are 5'2" in the UK.

So have I, which makes sense because 5'2" is only 7 inches below average for US and UK, while 6'8" is 11 inches above.

Is 5 feet 2 inches as common as 6 feet 8 inches for American adult males?
I can't speak for America, but in the UK, I believe I have seen far more 5ft 2 men than 6ft 7 or 8 in public.

Just met him out and about, and he's tiny. I had to lean during our photo, and that's why I googled his height. But the 5'2" listed here is ridiculous. He might have been 5'2" or 5'3" while hunched over, but when he straightened up for the photo, he was certainly above my chin & I'm 5'11" in the shoes I was wearing, so he has to be a legit 5'4" or maybe even 5'5". He was wearing very ordinary, flat shoes.
You can also see this in a photo on google where he's way too tall against Eathan Hawke to be 5'2"
P.S. this is anonymous, so I have no reason to lie about my own height here

He seems so tiny, he's in the same boat as Danny Devito is. Jeez!

5 foot 2? Inconceivable!

Looked at least three inches shorter than Woody Allen in Manhattan, I'd say this is roughly accurate.

Looked taller, at least 160-165, in My Dinner With Andre.

Then why does he say he's 5-5 in a 1964 newspaper article?
Don't know - What I do know is he was shorter than Dudley Moore in the film 'Lovesick'

wow, is wallace shawn really this tiny? I would credit him with 5'4" but really when you are that short, what's the difference? It's like going from 2nd percentile to 3rd.

I love this guy he is so funny! I always thought he was 5'4" or so .I guess it's because you don't see many guys that short. Good actor though.

Actually, Mel Smith could be shrinking, might be more 179cm now.

Another guy from The Princess Bride:
Mel Smith (now a director) is 180cm.
