Rainn Wilson Height

Life is suffering. Life is not resistance to suffering. The point of life is to suffer. This is why we're here: We're here to suffer. I believe in a higher power that compassionately allows suffering for us as a race, to grow and mature.

American actor, comedian, and writer, Rainn Wilson has appeared in many movies but he is perhaps best known for his role as Dwight Schrute on the NBC sitcom The Office, for which he earned three consecutive Emmy Award nominations.

You might already have noticed that Rainn Wilson is tall. Here is what he has to say about his height:

Well, fortunately, as I get older my height is decreasing. I was once 6'2", but now I'm squarely 6'1...I'm 49, and my spine is starting to bend.

From what we have seen of Rainn, we think he was really 6'2" or thereabouts in his prime. In "The Office" he looked really close in height to John  Krasinski, who is a big guy at 6 feet 2½ inches.

Height loss is quite common with aging but starting to lose height only in the late 40s is uncommon. Though it happens, and most often than not because of the bending of the spine or compression of the spinal discs.

The rock is another example of a person who lost half an inch in height only in his late forties. He went from 6'3" to 6'2½".

The height of Rainn Wilson in his prime was

6'2" or 188 cm

Present height is

6'1" or 185 cm

Rainn Wilson is one of a kind man. Here are some of his one kind of quotes:

Rainn Wilson on his looks.

I know what I look like - a weird, sad clown puppet. I'm fine with that.

Rainn Wilson on god's sense of humor.

I think God has a tremendous sense of humor.

Rainn Wilson on his brain.

My brain is so anxiety-prone, like a pinball machine. If I don't get up in the morning and focus my thinking, my breathing, and my being for about 12 minutes, I'm just a screwball all day long.

Rainn Wilson on theatre.

I started in theatre, and for me, it was all about transformation. You transform into the character that you're playing.

Rainn Wilson on god.

I came to realize I did believe in God. I couldn't conceive of a universe without someone overseeing it in a compassionate way.

Rainn Wilson on fathers.

Absolutely father knows best, always do what your fathers say, and if you can't find one then just ask me, I am a father and I know best.

Rainn Wilson on the people in the entertainment industry.

Some of the most morally conscious, kindest, most compassionate people are in the entertainment industry, people who want to affect the world and make it a better place by telling human, heartfelt stories.

Rainn Wilson on charity and handouts.

I think that charity is a tricky thing, because a lot of times, people equate charity with handouts. I don't believe in handouts.

Rainn Wilson on music.

Music is universal too. Even deaf people like to dance, love rhythm, and can kind of pick it up.

Rainn Wilson on the power of education.

And I do believe that the way to change a society, to uplift people - not just their spirit, but to uplift their society and economic base - is through education.

Rainn Wilson on his dad.

My dad was always such a frustrated artist. He always worked very hard to support his family, doing a bunch of ridiculous jobs. He wanted to be a painter, but then he also wrote science-fiction novels in his spare time.

Rainn Wilson

I found it very easy to transform into creeps and weirdos and losers and goofballs, and I'm happy to play eccentric kinds of characters, and I have a great affinity for the outsider, but I definitely am about expanding my range as well.

Rainn Wilson on his body.

My body has been making women laugh for the last 20 years and I'm happy to continue to oblige.

Rainn Wilson on the human connection.

We've seen that there are a lot of people out there - teenagers in Topeka, housewives in Long Island, millionaire Internet start-up moguls - who all want to connect with each other about what it is to be human.

Rainn Wilson on his wife and child.

I'm lucky to have a wife and a child that keep me grounded.
