Charlie Day Height

"I don't think you should just do what makes you happy. Do what makes you great. Do what's uncomfortable and scary and hard but pays off in the long run... Let yourself fail... And pick yourself up and fail again. Without that struggle, what is your success anyway?"

~ Charlie Day

American actor and comedian Charlie Day has appeared in movies like Pacific Rim and its sequel, The Lego Movie, Fist Fight and many more, but he is best known for playing Charlie Kelly on the sitcom It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

In a Wired video, Charlie Day said: "I'm just about a smidge under five-seven. I didn't quite make it to dreams were crushed."

Though after taking a careful look at him and comparing his height to that of people like Christoph Waltz (5'7¼"), Ice Cube (5'8"), Jimmy Fallon (5'11½"), Kendall Jenner (5'9½"), Chris Evans (6"), we think Charlie Day might be a bit more than a smidge under the five-seven mark.

It is possible that Charlie had measured his height with shoes still on.

The real height of Charlie Day is

5'5½" or 166 cm

"You cannot let a fear of failure or a fear of comparison or a fear of judgment stop you from doing what’s going to make you great. You cannot succeed without this risk of failure. You cannot have a voice without the risk of criticism and you cannot love without the risk of loss."
