Ben Affleck Height

"It doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life, because that's going to happen. All that matters is that you gotta get up."

~ Ben Affleck

Famous actor and film director Ben Affleck is known for his roles in movies such as Argo (2012), Gone Girl (2014), Triple Frontier (2019), The Way Back (2020), and playing Batman in the DC Extended Universe movies, etc.

What About Ben Affleck's Real Height though?

Ben Affleck is also known for being kind of a big deal. We mean he is really a big guy physically. He is not just tall but has this sort of imposing figure which is enough to intimidate anyone if they are stuck with him in an elevator.

In the fine movie Dazed and Confused (1993), Mr. Affleck was just twenty years old and yet towered over everyone in the movie, even the big guy Cole Hauser who is slightly over six feet tall but looked much bigger in that movie.

The director of the movie Richard Linklater wanted a likable actor for the villainous role and he has this to say about Ben Affleck, "he was big and imposing, but he was also so smart and full of life ... I just liked him."

Ben has claimed to be six feet three inches tall multiple times in the past. While he is tall, we think he is just shy of his claimed height, especially after comparing his height to that of a number of celebrities.

Take Jason Momoa for an example, he is six feet four inches tall and he seems to have easily an inch and a half over our man Ben Affleck. A six feet and a half-inch tall Henry Cavill looks no more than two inches shorter than Ben Affleck.

Instead, Ben Affleck looks very similar in height (just a bit taller) to someone like Hugh Jackman, who was six feet two inches tall in his prime but now looks a bit shorter.

After many more such height comparisons, we just can't see how Ben Affleck would touch the revered 6'3" mark on the stadiometer -- he would be just half an inch shorter than someone like Chris Hemsworth.

The real height of Ben Affleck is

6'2½" or 189 cm

"It's important for me to try my hand at philanthropy because I want to leave behind a record of someone who did more than just gobble up stuff for themselves. I realized that a life lived for yourself is not much of a life."
