Height Is Not Just A Korean Beer.

Nicolas Cage (6'1") with my friend and girlfriend at T and Geney Boy's b-day party last year.


Came across this site that lists the heights of various celebrities, and it reminded me of two things:

1) how obsessed Asian chicks are with height.

2) how famous people have this knack for being shorter in person.

I think one of the more infamous examples with my friends was this one girl who told me she would never ever date a guy less than six feet tall. Of course she was only 5'1". For some reason it seems to be the shorter girls who gravitate toward the taller guys. I could give you my theory on this - and I do have one - but it's close to bed time and my ass just had five Goose on the rocks. Anyway right after she told me this, she fell in love with and married a guy who's 5'8".

Before I stagger over to my bedroom and crash onto my mattress as if a midget lumberjack chopped away at my ankles, I'ma posting the heights of famous people in descending order - starting with the ones who really are tall in person. From the looks of it, I don't think the Web site did a thorough job of verifying the heights of certain people, such as accounting for Prince's high heels, Mariah's crack-induced hallucinations or Macy Gray's fro. But at least I know Nicolas Cage wasn't lying.
