~ Denzel Washington

Great actor, Denzel Washington is known for playing the characters defined by their grace, dignity, humanity, and inner strength in movies like The Equalizer, American Gangster, Malcolm X, Much Ado About Nothing, among many others.

Where height is concerned, Denzel Washington can be said to have a good height. He is listed as 6-feet-1 inch tall almost everywhere. Which is kind of correct -- actually depending on how precise you want your information to be...

After taking a careful look at Mr. Washington and comparing his height to that of many celebrities, like, Ethan Hawke (5'11"), Tom Hanks (6" in his prime), Will Smith (6'1½"), we think Mr. Washington might have been somewhere between 6" to 6'1" in his prime but now in his mid-60s, it seems he has lost some height with age.

Most people don't lose height in their 60s, but some people do -- and Mr. Washington seems to be one of them.
