About Matthew Lillard's Real Height

Matthew Lillard is a big man. So big, in fact, that he is bigger than Chris Hemsworth -- surprise, surprise!

Matthew has claimed to be 6 feet 4 inches tall in the past. But he has also claimed to be 6 feet 3 inches tall.

Perhaps that is why most websites list his height exactly between those two numbers -- as 6 feet 3½ inches.

We looked carefully at Matthew Lillard in his movies and now even we have to admit whatever the reason for this listing, we think Matthew might be just as tall.

We think he may be just a little taller than Chris Hemsworth and just a little shorter than Jason Momoa, so 6'3½" for him is just fine.

Anyway, we have a feeling that Matthew would make a nice wacky serial killer -- at least in a movie.

The real height of Matthew Lillard is

Here are some more Matthew Lillard quotes.

The day of realization.

I was like, what the hell is my life coming to? I'm a trained actor! I've done Shakespeare and here I am having farting contests with an imaginary dog!

On being a funny actor.

The thing is, I'm a funny actor, but I'm not good at being funny. I'm going to ramble for a second: I'm an actor who can make things funny in the moment, like in stakes or in circumstances or out of character.

Playing different characters.

Every character lives in ever actor and if you're doing your job right, you're just accessing that part of your fantasy life. I can kill someone just as quickly as I can have sex with someone. You can switch that instinct, no matter what - you can pretend anything.

On family films.

I like doing family films.

On his personal life.

I don't go to parties. I don't go to clubs. My friends and I don't go drinking, we play D&D. I'm still a weird entity in the world.

On drama in life.

I think everyone is given drama, by virtue of the fact that we all have drama in our lives, but not everyone can make people laugh.

Hollywood now.

Hollywood used to be run by artists and people who loved artists... people who wanted to make movies for all the right reasons. For the love. The Art. To tell stories. Yes to make money as well, but it was about both. Now I feel, it's mostly about the bottom line and making money.

On co-workers in a movie.

When you go from movie to movie, it's like going from family to family. You work with people for really intense hours on really long days and a bond happens. So even when a movie is terrible, you love it.

Acting vs. directing.

My first love is acting, but the reality is that I just don't get too many opportunities to stretch, and grow, and inspire myself as an actor, certainly not in terms of where I make money. Yeah, I can go off and do a play, but the reality is as a profession, directing is exponentially more satisfying.

On character actors.

Character actors are becoming a thing of the past. They're just going by the wayside. They're just cutting through that caliber of acting.

On directing a movie.

I learned a lot, in terms of inspiring people. It became very clear to me, very early on, that directing a movie was a lot like being in a theater company.

On playing a bad guy.

It's always fun to play a bad guy because you get more to do. It's more arch. There's more energy to throw into it.

On punk rock kids.

To me, the punk rock kids I grew up with were really, really smart, and to me, respecting those kids was a really big deal.
