I can see him claiming 5'8 , He can look it at times , in big shoes . Love to see that interview. I give him 5'7.5 personally. He is not that towered by will smith.

I recall him on Letterman many years ago claiming he was 5'8" as he was joking there was a 5'8" and over club or something that you needed to be in order to be cast the plum leading man roles; he was self deprecating ...

He can look over 5 '7
the shredder said on 7/Nov/14
I remember them looking the same?

i just watched do the right thing again and there is no way he was the same height as giancarlo esposito. 5'6 is more accurate than 5'7 or 5'8.

Rob , can he be taller , like 5 '7.25 ? He looks same height as Ice Cube
[Editor Rob: you can never rule it out]
the shredder said on 23/Oct/14
Same height as Ice Cube , he could be 5'7.5.
the shredder said on 17/Jul/14
Something is off in Bad Boys , there was no 6.5 inches between him and Smith.
the shredder said on 2/Jun/14
Rob , he is the same height as Ginacarlo. Can he be 5'7.5 ?
[Editor Rob: at times he can look anywhere in 5ft 7 range]
the shredder said on 9/Mar/14
Rob can he be 5'6 range and be a lift wearer?
the shredder said on 7/Mar/14
Rob , why does he look 5'5 , 5'6 with Johnny depp and Cruise?
the shredder said on 7/Mar/14
%'6 does not look bad with cruise and Johnny depp even though he can look 5'7 .
Mr. R said on 7/Mar/14
I saw him in Beverly Hills. He is 5-6.
the shredder said on 5/Mar/14
Rob , something is off , look at him with Jerry who you have at 5'7.25 on here. , even if Martin stands fully he still would not be as tall. Also Johhny depp and Cruise just eat him up there.

169-170cm guy.
Jay said on 5/Jan/14
Martin is clearly 5'8
the shredder said on 14/Nov/13
He really can look taller than 5'7.
Balrog said on 13/Nov/13
I think 5'7'' and a flat 6'1'' for Smith is the best.
the shredder said on 12/Nov/13
6'1.25 and 5'7.5 adds up better than 6'1.5 and 5'7.

Rob, good come back lol , I should have put In My Opinion ;). The site is working fine now , I was thinking you banned me or something.
[Editor Rob: apologies, unfortunately several regular commentators were effected the last few weeks...the best option is to send a tweet if access is limited more than a day or 2 and it alerts me more easily - the site is usually up 99% of the time!]
the shredder said on 12/Oct/13
Rob , if Will is the 6'1.5 minimum than Martin has to be 171 cm.
[Editor Rob: he doesn't have to be, but he could be...]
the shredder said on 5/Oct/13
I use to think 5'6.5 but he can look easily 5'7 to 5'8 ... He might wear lifts because he looked 2 " over John Leguizemo .
Edlt2882 said on 5/Sep/13
Saw this guy up close. I'm 5'7.5 and he looked about an inch taller. However, I think he was wearing boots, so this may have given him almost two additinal inches. He definitely is in the range of 5'7-5'8.

He was shorter than paul giamatti in big momma's house. Quite short next to terrence howard, luke wilson and will smith. 5 foot 7 is good for him.
C said on 29/Jun/13
If Will Smith is 6'2'', then Martin Lawrence is 5'9''. In Bad Boys I, Lawrence never looked more than 5 inches shorter than Smith. It wouldn't even make sense for Lawrence to wear lifts because according to Tea Leoni's dialogue in the movie, Mike (Smith) was "the tall one" and Marcus (Lawrence) was "the short one".

look at him next to tim robbins. he is not 5'7.

shredder, I was at this dinner in Bev Hills, and he walked right past me. I thought he was closer to 5-8, but no, he is 5-6.

How about Thomas Mikal Ford,the tall guy from the show.
Mr. R said on 10/Dec/12
I met ML at a dinner a few years ago. He is 5-6.
Bad Boys said on 30/Oct/12
Just watched the film, I agree he's no more than 5' 7" but plenty of shots with him with Will Smith and Joe Pantoliono (who played the captain) and he was only an inch or so shorter than Joe and about 4 than 6. 2 " SMith,

Also have a look at the camera angles in BadBoys.... you will see lots of shots from below or above... to cover for the half foot difference between the two.

@Rob its interesting what you said about somebody's proportions making them look taller/shorter than they are. Lawrence does look 170cm when compared to other actors but can look 5'8". Jack Nicholson on the other hand was 5'9.5" at his peak but his proportions always made him look on the short side, I think.

Shredder: Ok. Great. Thanks for clearing it up. And great that we agree on a height! Wow. I thought the day would never come...
leonari said on 28/Jul/12
Shredder: I hope you don't believe that Martin is 5'8"...
ROB_LOVER said on 30/Jan/12
just watching, the film a thin line between love and hate, when he walks into and through the building to deliver flowers he walks next to a slightly slouching lady with minor female buissness heels, she looks huge compared to him, you can just see how small he is walking in and around in this scene, id say 5'5" like that little guy in that 48 hours movie with nick nolte, he really is that small
