Anthony Mackie Height

The choices that we make through our lives, the people who intersect us on our path kind of change what our fated destiny is. So some of us are lucky enough for the choices that we make to keep us on our path.

~ Anthony Mackie

Famous actor, Anthony Mackie has given good performances in many movies like "8 Mile", "Brother to Brother", "Million Dollar Baby", and "The Hurt Locker", but he is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Sam Wilson/ Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

Like most superheroes, Falcon is decent-sized -- he is supposed to be 6 feet 2 inches (188 cm) tall in the comic books. But Anthony Mackie is not that tall. In this Wired video, Anthony Mackie mentions his height:

I'm one inch shorter than six foot.

We supposed he can pass for a 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) tall man. But when looked on carefully, especially with the likes of Sebastian Stan (5'11½"), Chris Evans (6"), Chis Pine (6'½"), etc. Mr. Mackie looks a bit shorter.

The height of Anthony Mackie is

5'10½" or 179 cm

Acting is the only medium where people think they can just stand up and do it because they can say lines, but that is not so much the case. You have to study styles and techniques.

I just don't understand how people can get so caught up in having their picture taken.

Not too many people can say they love what they do and they really like the people they work with.

Anthony Mackie on putting your life on line.

I haven't been able to grasp the concept of putting your life on the line for whatever reason people go into the military for. Some people just want to pay their bills, some people believe in their country and some people do it because their parents did it, but that's rough.

Anthony Mackie on why he loves his job.

I love what I do. If I have the opportunity to do what I do with people I admire, it's 10 times better.

Anthony Mackie on the power of truth in acting.

As an actor, the only thing we can do is play the truth at that moment. Because at any point in time if you play the future, or you play that you know something that the audience does not know, it kills the illusion of reality.

Anthony Mackie on improvising in acting.

Practice your improv more than learn your lines. 'Cause there's no way you'll be able to learn all those lines in a short time. You have to realize what you know and what you don't know - and what you don't know, just come up with three alternate lines or improv that you can put in that spot.

Anthony Mackie on the advice his dad gave him.

The advice my dad gave me: "To know is to study." Get some training under your belt, so that nobody what somebody asks you to do, and you know how to handle it accordingly. I learned so much while working because I developed a solid work ethic in school. Whereas, a lot of my friends had no work ethic; and because of that, they're sitting at home today.

Anthony Mackie on getting limited by people.

I was raised with a sense of entrepreneurship - my father owned a roofing business, and I grew up with the idea that you never want someone telling you what you can and cannot do.

People don't come to Marvel movies for personal life subplots, no.

I'm a poet. I'm just a renaissance man in my heart. I can build shelves and I can write poetry.

Anthony Mackie on Martin Luther King.

I'm not Martin Luther King. I can't be Martin Luther King. The only thing I can do is present what I feel the essence of Martin Luther King is.

Anthony Mackie on art schools.

It's hard sometimes when you're in a regular high school, you just feel like the odd kid out. The great thing about going to an art school is it's kind of like it's all the odd kids. It's all the kids that don't fit in at their regular schools, because they're into something and excited about something that other kids really aren't into. When you go to art school, everybody's kind of on the same page.

Anthony Mackie on working out.

I work out every day just to keep in shape. I feel like I never want to get stuck in a position where when you need somebody with great arms, you call Anthony Mackie. That hasn't been the calling card for my career, and nor do I want it to be.

Anthony Mackie on that Don King quote.

When I was in high school, I read the whole thing about Don King and he had this quote that said, "Set yourself on fire and the world will pay to watch you burn." I thought that was the most amazing thing I'd ever heard and I wrote it on my wall.

Anthony Mackie on Christmas.

For me, Christmas is about family, love, forgiveness, compassion, understanding, and comradery.
