Viggo Mortensen Height

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren't enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.

~ Viggo Mortensen

Viggo Mortensen has given powerful performances in many great movies but perhaps he will always be known for his portrayal of Aragorn in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Aragorn in the books was described as tall but Viggo isn't that tall. The original choice for playing Aragorn -- Daniel Day-Lewis happens to be tall at nearly 6 feet 2 inches.

As far as we know Viggo has never mentioned his height. But it isn't that difficult to guess his height from what we have seen of him in his movies.

The height of Viggo Mortensen is

5'11" or 180 cm

Viggo Mortensen is one of a kind man, these quotes prove it:

Viggo Mortensen on life.

Life is short and the older you get, the more you feel it. Indeed, the shorter it is. People lose their capacity to walk, run, travel, think, and experience life. I realize how important it is to use the time I have.

Viggo Mortensen on personal grooming.

I'm not that involved in personal grooming. But I try not to be offensive to people.

Viggo Mortensen on the artistic life.

To be an artist, you don't have to compose music or paint or be in the movies or write books. It's just a way of living. It has to do with paying attention, remembering, filtering what you see and answering back, and participating in life.

Viggo Mortensen on being bored.

There's no excuse to be bored. Sad, yes. Angry, yes. Depressed, yes. Crazy, yes. But there's no excuse for boredom, ever.

Viggo Mortensen on nature.

I have never been in a natural place and felt that it was a waste of time. I never have. And it's a relief. If I'm walking around a desert or whatever, every second is worthwhile.

Viggo Mortensen on being kind.

Be kind. It's worthwhile to make an effort to learn about other people and figure out what you might have in common with them. If you allow yourself to be somewhat curious - and if you get into the habit of doing that - it's the first step to being open-minded and realizing that your points of view aren't totally opposite.

Viggo Mortensen on art.

What art does is it makes you feel alive and makes you feel like you're connected.

Viggo Mortensen on pleasing everyone.

If you're trying to please everyone, then you're not going to make anything that is honestly yours, I don't think, in the long run.

Viggo Mortensen on death.

I'm not afraid of death, but I resent it. I think it's unfair and irritating.
