About Michael Shannon's Real Height

Michael Shannon's stature is very big -- we mean literal, physical stature (Though no doubt, his stature is quite big in the movie industry as well).

Most websites on the internet list his height as either 6’2” or 6’3”, but Michael himself has mentioned his height in the past either as 6 feet 3 inches or 6'4".

From what we have seen of Michael Shannon,(like with a 6’3” Chris Hemsworth) we guess Michael is definitely over 6’3” – but obviously not by much.

The real height of Michael Shannon is

6 ft 3¼ in

Here are some good Michael Shannon quotes

Michael Shannon on rebuilding self.

Everybody is constantly being destroyed and rebuilding themselves, some more drastically than others.

On Wall Street.

Everything that happens on Wall Street only fortifies my opinion that there is in fact a more ludicrous industry than the entertainment industry.

The secret of humans.

That's the great secret of humans: we're all the same person. The best thing to do is just go for the hug.

On system.

If you don't fight the system, you can either take advantage of the system or let the system take advantage of you.

On theater.

Theater is the best. That's where you get the work done. You just really get in there and figure something out about a story or a character or life or the world. That's where magic stuff happens.

Inside the machine.

My dad used to say, 'You have to become part of the machine to beat the machine,' and there's some validity in it. But honestly, even when I'm inside the machine, you still see me. I stick out a little bit.

On his daughters.

I've never worried about anything in my life a fraction of the way I worry about my daughter. It's much more than hoping people like the play you're in, or that your outfit doesn't look bad. It's the real deal.

His storytelling method.

I'm just kind of odd. There are dark forces in the world, and if you pay attention to what's going on around you, you end up incorporating it into the storytelling. Maybe it's some aspect of myself that's coming through that people are seeing, that I am in fact a quiet psycho.
