Martin Scorsese Height

"Movies touch our hearts, and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places. They open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our lifetime. We need to keep them alive."

~ Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese is without a doubt one of the greatest movie directors of all time. He has taken us on amazing rides in movies such as Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Wolf of Wall Street, Casino, Gangs of New York, The Aviator, Hugo, The Departed, and many more such masterpieces.

About Martin Scorsese's Real Cinematic Height

If you are interested in the great director's height -- you have already noticed that he is not the biggest guy on the set -- in fact, He must certainly be the smallest one on his movie sets most of the time.

But being very short certainly did not seem to hinder Martin in any way -- that's another reason to remember that height is just a number and shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Anyway, there is no official figure for Martin Scorsese's height. Being a director meant that Mr. Scorsese worked behind the scenes and that his height was never a topic of interest to the public like famous actors' height is -- so there was no mention of his height anywhere.

If you see a listing about his height -- you can be assured that it is just a guess. Every number about his height on the internet is just a guess -- it doesn't matter if it is from great Google or IMDb.

If that's so, then let's add our own guess -- because we pride ourselves on our height guessing ability.

After taking a careful look at Martin Scorsese and comparing his height to that of legends like Joe Pesci (5'3" in his prime), Al Pacino (5'6" in his prime), Steven Spielberg (5'7"), Robert De Niro (5'9" in his prime), we think that have a good understanding of his height.

The height of Martin Scorsese is

5'2" or 157.5 cm

Height in his prime was 5'3" or 160 cm
