Joaquin Phoenix Height

Is it that your dream is unattainable or is it that you have the wrong dream?

~ Joaquin Phoenix

Amazing actor Joaquin Phoenix is known for his acting prowess, which he has put on display in films such as "Gladiator", "Signs,", "Her,", etc. But he received unparalleled acclaim for his portrayal of Joker in the 2019 movie "Joker".

About Joaquin Phoenix's real height

As far as we know Joker is supposed to be 6 feet tall or something like that in the comic books. Previous jokers in Batman movies were all taller than Joaquin -- Jared Leto is 5 feet 9 inches tall, Heath Ledger was 6′1″, and Cesar Romero was all the way up at 6′3″, even Jack Nicholson was taller at 5′9½″.

Joaquin Phoenix is without a doubt, the shortest Joker.

But surprisingly he didn't look undersized in the role (he never looks) even though he is far from 6 feet. he looked kinda tall in The Joker, perhaps because he was so skinny in that movie -- perhaps no more than 135 lb (61 kg).

IMDb lists Joquin Phoenix at 5 feet 8 inches, and after taking a careful look at him and comparing his height to that of people like Emma Stone (5'6"), Mark Wahlberg (5'8" -- his height twin), Mel Gibson (5'9½" in his prime), Russell Crowe (slightly over 5'10½" in his prime) we kind of agree with the listing.

This makes Joaquin Phoenix just as tall as some other Hollywood legends like Marky Mark Wahlberg, Robet Downey Jr., and Tom Cruise.

The real height of Joaquin Phoenix is

5 ft 8 in (173 cm)

Here are some more Joaquin Phoenix quotes

Joaquin Phoenix on kindness to animals.

It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal.

We are all animals..

We are all animals of this planet. We are all creatures. And nonhuman animals experience pain sensations just like we do. They too are strong, intelligent, industrious, mobile, and evolutional. They too are capable of growth and adaptation. Like us, firsthand foremost, they are earthlings. And like us, they are surviving. Like us they also seek their own comfort rather than discomfort. And like us they express degrees of emotion. In short like us, they are alive.

On his significant other.

My significant other right now is myself, which is what happens when you suffer from multiple personality disorder and self-obsession.

What he would rather have.

For me, I'd rather have an intense experience than not.

On his belief.

I don't believe in god. I don't believe in an afterlife. I don't believe in soul. I don't believe in anything. I think it's totally right for people to have their own beliefs if it makes them happy, but to me it's a pretty preposterous idea.

On people's lives.

I don't know a single person in life that doesn't have conflict.

On his preferred nickname.

When I go out with the ladies, I don't force them to pronounce my name. I tell them I like to go by the nickname of Kitten.

His acting roles.

I don't know why I always get to play these guys who have few redeeming features. But don't knock it. Villains are much more fun.

On working and holidays.

I like working all the time. I hate taking breaks. I don't like the weekends.

On his fear.

I always have the fear that, if I don't commit 100 percent to my work, then it's gonna suffer.

On acting.

Acting is real important to me. I love it, and it's something I care about.

On his upbringing.

I had a really wonderful upbringing. We were a tight family. It was wonderful to grow up with so many siblings. We were all just a year or two apart, and we were always so supportive of each other. I learned everything from my older brother and sister and taught it to my younger sisters.

On his effort.

When I do something, I commit to it 100%.

The most liberating feeling.

Once I became a total buffoon, it was so liberating.

On commitment.

When I decide to do something, I stick with it, total commitment.

On acting now.

I just I don't feel challenged by acting anymore. I don't enjoy the process anymore.
