Vin Diesel's Real Height

"Being male is a matter of birth. Being a man is a matter of age. But being a Gentleman is a matter of choice."

~ Vin Diesel

According to the great movie critic Roger Ebert [RIP], There was a time when Vin Diesel was walking around the Sundance film festival telling everyone left and right that he would someday be a big star. 

Roger probably didn't think much of his claim at the time. There are a lot of ambitious people in the world but few have the grit and determination to reach their goals. But Later Vin Diesel did become kind of a big deal and Roger recalled this moment in the review of the XXX (2002) movie.

Achieving your dreams needs a kind of determination, grit, and single-minded focus that few people possess -- Vin Diesel is certainly one of them. He went from being a bouncer in a club to be one of the biggest actors in the world. This shows there is something about him, isn't it?

About Vin Diesel's Real Height

Vin Diesel is known for many things, for his movies such as the XXX and the Fast and the Furious series. He is also known as a symbol of masculinity and of course his height... or the lack of thereof.

Now, don't get it wrong, Vin Diesel is not short in any way. What he is -- known as being height-conscious -- which simply means that he is aware of his height and doesn't like to be thought of as shorter than he actually is -- consider his big boots and upright posture most of the time. There is nothing wrong with this in any way though.

Vin Diesel has been described as a 6'1" to 6'4" tall muscular bald guy most of his life but the man himself once claimed to be a modest six feet one inch tall.

After carefully looking at him, examining and comparing his height to that of Jason Statham (5'9"), John Cena (6'½"), late Paul Walker (6'2"), The Rock (6'2½" from 6'3"), and many other celebrities, we think Vin Diesel belongs to the six feet neighborhood than any other... but on the southern side of it.

The real height of Vin Diesel is

5'11½" or 182 cm
