Dave Franco Height

As much as I love and respect my brother, I'm doing my best to distance myself from him and show people that, even though we look similar and have similar mannerisms, we are completely different.

American actor and director, Dave Franco is known for appearing in movies such as 21 Jump Street, Fright Night, Neighbors, Nerve, and The Disaster Artist, etc.

About Dave Franco's Real Height

Dave Franco's height is something of a surprise because the actor doesn't look that short on screen -- but he is.

Perhaps this is because he is so well-proportioned -- just like another short actor -- Tom Cruise. Here is what Dave has to say about his physical stature.

I'm a small shifty kind of guy.

We think Dave was just joking about the shifty part but he is indeed far shorter than even a short actor like Tom Cruise (5'7¾"). Most websites list Dave's height at a stately 5 feet 7 inches -- though we have our doubts about that -- from what we have seen of him.

After taking a careful look at him and comparing his height to that of people like Alison Brie (5'3"), Daniel Radcliffe (5'4½"), Jonah Hill (5'6¼"), and Zac Efron (5'8"), etc, we think that Dave Franco is definitely shorter than 5'7".

Perhaps, he will touch the 5'7" with some good shoes on but otherwise -- a big no. Though surprisingly, his brother James Franco is a far bigger guy at 5 feet 10½ inches. Genetics works in mysterious ways and so does James Franco.

The real height of Dave Franco is

5'5¾" or 167 cm

Here are some more Dave Franco quotes.

Being questioned about his sexuality.

You're in high school, and you're telling your friends that you're skipping lunch to go write poetry, and they're all questioning my sexuality.

On bad movie scripts.

You can't make a good movie with a bad script, no matter who's involved.

Being a...

I'm a cat person.

On his brother.

I don't just wanna be James Franco's little brother.

On zombie movies.

I can't say I was a die-hard zombie fan, but I've definitely seen a few different zombie movies and TV shows.

His first big purchase.

My first big purchase was actually for my mom. She had one of those '90s TVs in her living room that's like a 10x10 brick, so I purchased her a flatscreen for her living room.

Being shy.

To be honest, I was kind of a shy kid growing up.

How did he get into the entertainment biz?

My first job ever, I was 14 years old - I was working at this mom-and-pop video store, and they basically paid me by allowing me to take home as many movies as I wanted, and that's how I started watching all the classics, and really getting into it.

On his brother's help.

For example, for me, my brother helped me get a manager, which I don't take for granted. It's tough getting a manager, let alone one that actually cares about you and is smart. But from there, no one's going to cast me just because I'm James Franco's little brother.

On taking risks.

At this point, I feel like I can allow myself to be goofy and take more risks, and even if I do fall on my face, I know it's not the end of the world and at least I tried to do something different.

On writing.

I've always loved to write. I've been writing a lot longer than I've been acting, and I hope to continue to do that and maybe do it a little bit more in terms of, like, writing movies that I could potentially act in.

Learning from others.

I've been lucky enough to, for the most part, surround myself with a lot of people who are more talented than me and who I can learn from, and it makes me up my game.

Being funny without being funny.

My brand of humor is trying to play the situation as real as possible because I'm not the type of guy who is a joke a minute.

His secret of being funny.

My secret is just surrounding myself with people who are a lot funnier than me.

On getting rejected as an actor.

I think 99 percent of actors have gone through severe rejection before they ever landed a single role. I probably auditioned for 100 projects before I was cast in even the smallest role.

On movies.

No one ever sets out to make a bad movie. There's almost always an incredible amount of passion and work put behind any given project. You just have to give it everything you got, and sometimes it works out, and a lot of the time it doesn't.

On working with family and friends.

I love working with family and friends because, as an actor, it makes my job easy. I feel comfortable with all of these people, and I feel more willing to take risks.

Finally getting a job as an actor.

It's the most incredible feeling in the world when you finally land a job.

On movie business.

It's a weird thing about our business: You give everything you have, and there are moments where you go back and forth in your mind about if what you're doing is brilliant or a total disaster.

Being exposed to strange stuff.

I don't know if I was born weird. I think it's just that I was exposed to very strange things from a very early age by my brothers.

Dave Franco burned down his dorm room to ash.

I burned down my dorm room freshman year. I was that kid. When you live in small quarters with two guys, the smell in the room starts to take over a little bit. So we decided we wanted our room to smell like fresh baked cookies. So we order a cookie-dough-scented candle off eBay, and then we accidentally burn our room down with that candle.
