About Colin Firth's Real Height

Colin Firth looks like a tall gentleman.

His height is listed as either 6 feet 1 inch or 6’2” on most of the websites on the internet. But Colin himself once mentioned his height as six-foot-one-and-a-half.

We think Colin is just as tall as he claims to be. This puts him in the same league of height as people like Hugh Jackman, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Pratt, etc.

The height of Colin Firth is

6 ft 1½ in (187 cm)

Here are some more Colin Firth quotes

Colin Firth on being an Englishman.

Because I am an Englishman I spent most of my life in a state of embarrassment.

On his work.

I would rather five people knew my work and thought it was good work than five million knew me and were indifferent.

On his family resemblance.

When I look in the mirror, I don't see my Dad, I see my grandmother. For a while, it was my mother looking back at me. If only it was my Dad.

Being hostile to others.

The English people, a lot of them, would not be able to understand a word of spoken Shakespeare. There are people who do and I'm not denying they exist. But it's a far more philistine country than people think.

On actors.

Actors are basically drag queens. People will tell you they act because they want to heal mankind or, you know, explore the nature of the human psyche. Yes, maybe. But basically, we just want to put on a frock and dance.

On reading a book.

When I'm really into a novel, I'm seeing the world differently during that time— not just for the hour or so in the day when I get to read. I'm actually walking around in a haze, spellbound by the book and looking at everything through a different prism.

On the skill of the actor.

The skill of a good actor is to make it always seem like you're in that fantastically spontaneous moment. Very often, a stand-up comedian has a different instinct, which is to reinvent. Once you've laid down some material, and made them laugh, you move on and find some new material.

Why he likes playing strange characters?

I like playing strange characters. Some people might say it has something to do with a hidden part of myself, but I think it's a lot simpler than that: normal people are just not very interesting.
