Who doesn't know or love Will Smith? This wonderful actor has enthralled and amazed with his performance in movies such as Muhammad Ali in Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness, Suicide Squad, the Bad Boys series, and the Men in Black series, etc -- and consequently won more awards than we can list here.

About Will Smith's Real Height

One thing we can list here is Will Smith's height. Actually, there is not any mystery about his height. Will Smith is a big man through and through, even if he doesn't look like that on the screen.

Will Smith has always claimed to be six feet two inches tall and looked like it, especially if you compare his height to that of actors like Henry Cavill (6'½"), Big Ben Affleck (6'2½"), The Rock (6'2½" now, 6'3" in his prime), etc. Though for some reason Will Smith seems to be just a little bit shorter than he used to look in his youth -- it is probably his bad posture though.

Will Smith is one of those classic cases of the tall father and the short son as well. His son Jaden Smith looks around 5'7" tall -- around 7 inches shorter than him. Will still would have been around two inches taller than his son if he were a woman.

The height of Will Smith is

6'1½" or 187 cm

"Don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do something. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can't do something themselves, they are going to tell you that you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period."
