Hugo Weaving Height

When you're a kid you have this sense of wonder and wholeness and a strong sense of your own identity.

~ Hugo Weaving

Australian actor, Hugo Weaving is known for his fine work in movies such as "Lord of the Rings" (as Elrond), The Matrix trilogy (as the iconic Agent Smith), The Transformers Series (as Megatron), and many more.

Hugo Weaving is a tall actor -- though we can understand if he doesn't look that tall to you.

In movies, he is taller than his fellow actors most of the time, like Mel Gibson (5'9½"), Laurence Fishburne (6"), and even Keanu Reeves, who is sort of a tall actor himself at 6 feet 1 inch.

Only a person like Vince Vaughn has what it takes to make Hugo Weaving look short, though Vince is around 6'5" so there is that.

Anyway, after carefully looking at Mr. Weaving and comparing his height to that of many of his co-actors, we think he is around 6 feet 2 inches tall -- around an inch taller than Keanu Reeves.

The real height of Hugo Weaving is

6'2" or 188 cm

Here is some thoughtful Hugo Weaving quotes:

Hugo Weaving on being in natural at night.

Being in the woods at night is a beautiful thing.

Hugo Weaving on driving license.

I didn't get my license because I wasn't allowed to. But I haven't had a seizure for a long time so I could, theoretically, get my license. But I'm now just so used to not driving, I'm scared of what I'd do.

Hugo Weaving on being unrecognizable.

People are more likely to pass me on the street without recognizing me, and that's good.

Hugo Weaving on not belonging anywhere.

I don't think I'll ever escape the fact that I don't belong anywhere in particular. I've often dreamed about going back to Nigeria, but that's a very romantic notion. It's a hideous country to go to in reality.

Hugo Weaving on getting inside a character.

I generally find an affinity with a lot of the people I play and I suppose if I didn't feel an affinity for them then they wouldn't be particularly good performances.

Hugo Weaving on feeling like an outsider.

We're all outsiders in a way. We're all alone and can become very lonely.

Hugo Weaving on human beings.

As human beings, of course, we're all compromised and complex and contradictory.

Hugo Weaving on acting.

It's [probably acting] kind of chased away a few demons for me and, um, it's educated me a little bit more.

Hugo Weaving on mobile phones.

I keep thinking I should get a phone because everyone's got one and it becomes increasingly difficult to exist in a society where everyone else has moved ahead and you haven't.

Hugo Weaving on self-confidence.

I think I'm much less self-confident today. I actually went through a quite painful period because of that thinking that I was completely hopeless. But I think that's something that we all go through at various times of our lives and it was quite a sustained thing with me.

Hugo Weaving on being a dreamer.

I think I'm a bit of a dreamer. I don't like the reality of life to impinge much on my life.

Hugo Weaving on working in a wholesome environment.

It's a real pleasure to go to work when you're in the most extraordinary surroundings, and working with people who are young and interested and creatively keen.

Hugo Weaving on movies being formulaic when they don't have to.

I think often in films we limit our imaginations a little - well, quite a lot, actually... things get quite formulaic.

Hugo Weaving on acting and game playing.

To me acting originally became an extension of game playing.
