Samuel L. Jackson Height ~ How Tall is He Really?

"The best advice that was given to me was that I had to be 10 times smarter, braver and more polite to be equal. So I did."

~ Samuel L. Jackson

Phenomenal actor, Samuel L. Jackson is known for his roles in great movies such as Pulp Fiction, Die Hard: With a Vengeance, A Time to Kill, Jackie Brown, Django Unchained, and the many Marvel Universe movies.

Mr. Jackson is a tall man. He has claimed in the past to have been 6'3" tall, though IMDB lists him at 6'2.5".

In the movie Pulp Fiction, he seems to have a few inches on a 6'0.5" John Travolta. After looking him up and comparing him to other celebrities such as Uma Thurman (5'11.5"), Bruce Willis (5'11.5"), Liam Neeson (6'4"), and some others, we think 6'2.5" is a good call for him. 

Though even if he was 6'2.5" at his peak, he certainly seems to have lost some height with age - now he looks in 6'1" range.

"I never had one beer. If I bought a six-pack of beer, I kept drinking till all six beers were gone. You have to have that kind of understanding about yourself. I haven't had a drink now in 12 years."
