"Big things have small beginnings."

~ Michael Fassbender

Enigmatic Actor, Michael Fassbender has entertained and enthralled us in movies such as Shame, Inglourious Basterds, Prometheus, 12 Years a Slave, and The X-Men movie series, etc.

Do you want to know Michael Fassbender's real height? Perhaps because he doesn't look that tall on-screen -- or perhaps he seems to have a good height for a man, or maybe because Michael looked too close in height to someone like Charlize Theron, but Ms. Theron is a big woman you see -- at 5-feet-10 inches tall.

After carefully looking at Michael Fassbender and comparing his height to that of some other celebrities like Chiwetel Ejiofor (around 5'10"), and Benedict Cumberbatch (5'11½"), we think that Michael is very similar in height to them as well as stars like Brad Pitt (5'11"), and Leonardo DiCaprio (he would be a bit shorter than Leo).

We also came to the conclusion that Michael is taller than the average US male after all.

The real height of Michael Fassbender is

A Few Interesting Facts About Michael Fassbender

Michael has an older sister: Catherine Fassbender, who is a neuropsychologist at the MIND Institute in Sacramento, California.

Michael is a technophobe in real life -- the funny thing is that he played Steve Jobs in the movie "Steve Jobs" and got away with it.

Michael is friends with director Steve McQueen. He is also friends with James McAvoy who once crashed a golf cart the two were driving in and Michael sustained an injury on his left leg, which left a nasty scar.

Michael was born in Germany, to a German father and an Irish mother, and was raised in Ireland. So understandably his first language is English and his second is German.

Michael named the late actor John Cazale as one of his greatest inspirations. He has also said that Joel Schumacher, who directed him in Blood Creek (2009), was one of his favorite directors. And he once stated that his co-star Marion Cotillard is the best actress in the business.

"Scratch the surface of what's socially normal. I suppose in some way all of us have something we display to the public and things we feel too ashamed of or uncomfortable with to reveal to other people."
