About John C. Reilly's Real Height

Where height is concerned John C. Reilly is a big man. In a Wired question and answer season, he claimed to be "Six-Two, but I used to say Six One and a Half so it sounded like I wasn't too tall on my resume." 

Truth be told, he looks that big, he looks very similar in size to other 6'2" (around) guys like Samuel Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Jackman, Will Smith, Chris Pratt, etc. But we think that now in his sixties, Mr. Reilly is would not measure up to 6'2" anymore. Lots of people lose height with age. Arnold Schwarzenegger seems to have lost around 2 inches in a matter of 20 years, so Mr. Reilly is actually holding up pretty well.

The real height of John C. Reilly is

6'1½" or 186.5 cm

Height in his prime was 6'2"

"Just look around, in life, there are people who want to date people who look like themselves, and there are people who are just looking for a good fit. And a lot of times, a good fit is someone different than yourself. I'm not one to get too hung up on outside appearances. I find people attractive for more subtle reasons than just the way they look."
