Idris Elba Height

I'm tactile, very tactile. A woman who has really nice, looked-after skin is such a turn-on for me. It's always sexy.

Great actor Idris Elba is known for his amazing screen presence. He has starred in movies such as Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom  The Suicide Squad, Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw, Thor, American Gangster, Prometheus, etc.

About Idris Elba's real height

Idris Elba has a great screen presence. It can be said that this great screen presence can be attributed, partly at least to his magnificent height.

Idris is a big man -- tall with broad shoulders who intimidate normal-sized people. He is so big that he even towered even a 6 feet tall Charlie Hunnam in the movie Pacific Rim.

Idris once mentioned his height as almost 6 feet 3 inches. Well, he definitely looks in the 6'3" neighborhood -- but on the southern side of it -- along with The Rock and big Ben Affleck.

Idris looked more or less the same height as The Rock in Hobbs & Shaw. Though The Rock was definitely a bit taller in his youth though.

Idris also looks a bit shorter than a genuine 6'3" tall Chris Hemsworth and a bit taller than 6'2" Tom Hiddleston. All of these things make us think that Idris Elba's height is exactly between 6'2" and 6'3".

The real height of Idris Elba is

6 ft 2½ in (189 cm)

Here are some other quotes from big Idris Elba.

On playing different roles.

I love to play different roles. That's just the kind of actor I am.

His love of sneakers.

Not obsessed with particularly Nike, but sneakers in general. I love them.

Waking up in truth.

Waking up in TRUTH is so much better than living in a lie.

Being ambitious.

I'm an ambitious person. I never consider myself in competition with anyone, and I'm not saying that from an arrogant standpoint, it's just that my journey started so, so long ago, and I'm still on it and I won't stand still.

On portraying Nelson Mandela.

What an honor it was to step into the shoes of Nelson Mandela and portray a man who defied the odds, broke down barriers, and championed human rights before the eyes of the world.

We are all human beings.

We're all human beings. Experience is experience, let's just be honest. Let's not try and dissect suffering into a race, or whatever you want to call it. We're all human beings, one way or another. All races have gone through times that are challenging; that's part of being human.

Being athletic.

I was always a real athletic kid. Then when I got older, I just figured it was part of life to keep training.

Like Morgan Freeman -- don't talk about it.

The less I talk about being black, the better.

Being a fool at 40.

My Father always told me that a fool at 40 is a fool for life.

On attention to detail.

The audience loves it when you pay attention to details.

If you are going to jail...

If I was gonna go to jail, I don't want to go to jail for stealing a bottle of water. I'll steal that $20 million. At least then it was worth it.

Who Nelson Mandela was really?

It was deeply important for me to understand where Mandela came from. Because we know where he was going, and that's a famous story, but who was he? Where did he come from? What was his upbringing?

Why he left England.

If you go to Africa and you're white, you're probably not going to get that much work either. But the fact is that there is a longer history of black integration in the U.S. I don't have any resentment about this: I did the maths, calculated it against my ambition, and decided to leave England.
