At age 53 he is beginning to look slightly shorter than 6ft1.

In this picture he looks about the same or shorter than Channing Tatum (6ft0.5):

In this picture he must have awful posture, because he looks about the same as Christopher Nolan (~5ft11.25):

Even with awful posture, though, I am not sure a 6ft1 man would like that next to a man in the 5ft11 range.

It's hard to say what can be attributed to poor posture and what might be a drop to about 6ft0.5 range. In any case it's fair to say that Rob should keep an eye on him in the coming years.

He had close to 3 inches on Brad Pitt. I think he is around a 186cm if measured. He looks too tall to be under 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/16
Nearer 6ft2 in Dusk Till Dawn, about 3in on Clooney
james said on 25/Apr/16
Hes a solid 6'1 looked even taller in Dusk Till Dawn next to George Clooney who I thought was 5'11 but that was a lie
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
186cm isn't impossible
travis said on 20/Mar/16
yup he 6'1 look like it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/16
He used to get listed as high as 6ft3 and I believed it...but then again I also believed Travolta was 6ft2. Both were always 2in below those absurd figures.

Rob, how do you think heights get so inflated in the media?
Sam said on 9/Nov/15
I think Tarantino's a solid 6'1" but not really around 6'2"...I think the difference with Travolta can look anywhere in the 1-1.5 inch range and he can seem near an inch under Jackson. Wouldn't really go above 6'1.25" IMO for Tarantino.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jun/15
He really does look 187-188cm range in Pulp Fiction.
Maybe 2cm shorter than Samuel L. Jackson (189-190cm) and at least 3cm taller than Travolta (184cm)
Dmeyer said on 25/Jun/15
In cannes he has 0.6in shoes he looks 1.5in taller than travolta who has more shoes , and about as tall as uma in big heels 6'3-3.5ish , if the Guy was 6'1.5 i wouldnt be shocked , with the right posture he is steel 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/15
I agree with Mon. He's taller than he looks.
Pushing 6ft2 I don't know but for sure not under 6ft1
Mon said on 10/Jun/15
Probably has less of a footwear boost at these premiers than actors, so a little taller than he looks beside them. His head and torso always seem really, really large, like in the John Wayne class. I think he is a weak 6'2'' with relaxed posture,
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/15
He used to get listed at 6ft3. It made sense to me at the time because Travolta was getting reported at 6ft2 and Willis at 6ft1. All that made me assume Samuel L. Jackson was 6ft4!
noscoper said on 6/Mar/15
I thought for many years this guy was 1.88
but now i definetely see him at 1.85
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Feb/15
Not under 6ft1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/14
He makes Travolta look 5ft11 flat at times.

No less than 6ft1 today
valiant said on 19/Jun/14
6ft 0.75 pek. today he's 6ft 0.5
MetalKid said on 2/Jan/14
My friend looks like him and is 6'1" also!
Sam said on 10/Jul/13
Tarantino looks a little shorter than the South Park guys, although seems to be at disadvantagous angle, probably an inch shorter than Matt Stone & close to Trey Parker.

I cant see DiCaprio under 6'0 if Quentin is 6'1
[Editor Rob: here is Leo with a Guy who is 6ft 1 and a quarter...]

Sorry, I didn't want to point out Leo as a 6-footer because I certainly don't believe he is. But Tarantino just doesn't look over 6'0 today to me

doesnt look is the key words. lots of people do not look 5'10 yet they are. lots of people dont look 6'2 yet they are. lots of people look 6'1 yet they are not. so as he he is fat now he will look a bit shorter most likely. he is close to 6'1. he probably lost a 1/4 inch.
Lorne said on 4/Jul/13
His posture is horrible now, which is why he seems shorter. Of course there is a chance he's the kind of guy who has already lost a fraction by age 50, though could really look 186cm. I say 185.5-186cm "peak", today could be nearer 185cm flat(basically a wee fraction under 6'1 night) though again I say posture is to blame. And saying Decaprio wears lifts is stupid. They're is no evidence whatsoever. He's a solid 181cm guy, clearly 5'11+. Get over it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/13
That guy would really be 188cm if he were to stand upright.
There's a clear 2in at least between them.
jtm said on 25/Jun/13
dicaprio is 5'10 and likes to wear lifts.
dmeyer181.2-183.8 said on 24/Jun/13
leo looks a solid 182cm with the 186cm guy but if the 186cm was standing as tall as possible he could make leo look 181cm

Maybe he has dropped a bit. This pic came out the other day of him and he's in pretty bad shape: Click Here

He'll be 50 in about two months, and if he hasn't been exercising and has been carrying more weight I could see a loss of half an inch or so.
Larc 74in said on 4/Feb/13
I doubt he lost anything at all, he's not even 50y, maybe a few mm.
Haven't watched Django however, so I can be wrong.
dmeyer said on 4/Feb/13
6'1-1.25 peak now 6'1 at worst 6'0.75
dmeyer said on 3/Feb/13
if tarantino is even 1mm under 185.4cm 6'1 pitt is defenetly under 5 ft 11
Alex said on 27/Jan/13
He didn't look 6ft1 in Django. He did, however looked like it in Pulp Fiction. Rob, do you think he may have lost a few cm s over the years?
[Editor Rob: I doubt he's really lost much, maybe he could develop a bit poorer posture though and appear shorter at times.]
Joey said on 21/Dec/12
he is a weak 6'1 flat during the day I'd say...and he made pitt look 176cm area because pitt IS 175-177cm without his elevator shoes, open your eyes and dont blindly believe whatever actors claim <.<
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/12
Always at least 1in taller than Travolta and
holds his own opposite 188cm dudes like
Michael Madsen and Robert Rodriguez.
186cm at least
Shaun said on 30/Jan/12

Jonathan Ross has looked 186-187 cm in comparison to the vast majority of his guests and roughly what he claims The only time he really didn't look 187 was next to Jay Z who looked 6'2" flat. 5'11" for Travolta?? Have you ever seen him next to Princess Diana? Not a chance.

An inch shorter than Michael Madsen, doubt he is 187cm then even if he can look it at least at times. Flat 6'1" seems about right.
Jack said on 3/Jan/12
same height as Marilyn Manson..185 cm for sure.
Adamz said on 19/Nov/11
When? Where?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/11
Looked 1in shorter than Samuel L. Jackson so 6"1.25(186cm), if not 6"1.5.
Adamz said on 13/Nov/11
Met him at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. We talked for a brief moment and I got a picture with him, the picture is while seated but I did make sure to take note of his height and footwear after he stood up. He is no less than this, but i would say its accurate. He may be 1/2 inch taller.

Everybody makes Pitt look 5'10 range

He's 183-184 cm tall.
johno said on 22/Oct/11
Hmmmmm, jonathon ross edged him in both interviews and jonathon ross claims 6'1.5. He would definently be 6'1 if ross is 6'1.5 however, ross does not seem this tall and with general estimations on jonathon ross's page, ross seems less then 6'1. For me, ross is more closer to a flat 6'0, then 6'1 so i cannot see how quentin can be 6'1. I would put him at the same height as ross. 6'0.5, maybe closer to 6'0.

Having him edge travolta is not neccessarily a confidence vote. Travolta does not seem 6'0, more in the low 5'11 range and could be in the top of the 5'10 terrain.

Having Tarantino more towards 6'0, then 6'1 would fit in with brad pitt 5'9 conspiracy.

Ross 6'0 - 6'0.5
Quentin Tarantino 6'0 - 6'0.5
Jose Cruz Parker said on 23/Sep/11
He IS 6´1 MAYBE , MAYBE a little shorter....
Rampage you dont know what you´re talking about..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Aug/11
1.5in taller than Travolta and 0.75in shorter than Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction, putting him at 6ft2(188cm). That's probably a bit of a stretch. Aswell, movies aren't always the most reliable method to judge height. But I think he's over 185cm barefoot. In pictures he can look the same height as Robert Rodriguez...
Shaun said on 16/Jul/11
Doesn't look more than a flat 6'1" compared to quite a few though.
Shaun said on 16/Jul/11
To be honest I think 187cm is nearer. He easily looks 6'1.5"next to Pitt and Eli Roth .
jtm said on 8/Jul/11
he made pitt look his 5'9.5 height.
Dmeyer said on 7/Jul/11
Hé makes Pitt look 5 ft 10
Mesay said on 14/Jun/11
I have seen him next to robert rodeiguez who is 6'2, both in average shoes and short pants, i would say Quentin the Genious Tarantino is between 182-183cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jun/11
He's close to 6ft2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/11
He's 186-187cm...looks that way in Pulp Fiction
Lenad is sexy said on 26/Apr/11
He looks barely shorter than many 6'2 guys. I'd say 6'1 absolute min
Shaun said on 21/Apr/11
LOL @ 6'5" Tarrantino. I could buy 6'1.5". he certainly looked it next to Brad Pitt.
Chameleon said on 19/Mar/11
6'1 for Tarantino.
Chameleon said on 19/Mar/11
Once again proves Rampage doesnt have a clue what hes talking about.
thebad7 said on 18/Mar/11
There are pics of him standing next to friend & collaborator Robert Rodriguez at a recent awards show. He is about 1" shorter than RobRod. 6'1" is spot on for QT.


P.S.--Awesome writer & director. Fabulous taste in old-school films, especially Spaghetti Westerns.
Larc 6 ft 1.5 in said on 5/Mar/11
He can't be 6'1.5, he looks 2inches shorter than 6'3 listed Tom Hooper.
And the same difference can be spot also between Colin Firth and Hooper, so Firth is at best 6'1 and so is Tarantino.
How can he be 6'1.5? He's also clearly shorter than 6'2 Robert Rodriguez.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/11
6"1.5(187cm) is nearer...about an inch taller than 6"0.5(184cm) John Travolta
dmeyer said on 31/Dec/10
could he be over 6 ft 1 to me he looks 6 ft 1.25 to 6 ft 1.5
pete said on 5/Dec/10
next to Robert Rodriguez who is 6`2 (He wrote this in His own Book!!) You can see that Tarantino is a little bit smaller. I think 6 ft 1 is correct

[Editor Rob: thanks for reminding about RR, he's been asked to be added before and now I will.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Nov/10
Looks eyelevel with RZA..
Moke said on 11/Nov/10
Yeah he definitely is a strong 6'1 and very massive too. Here with 6'2 RZA: Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Nov/10
He could be 6"1.25(186cm).
Chris said on 16/Sep/07
That's funny. I thought he looked slightly shorter than Ross, but there wasn't much in it.
Anonymous said on 16/Sep/07
He looked a little bit taller than 6ft 1 jonathan ross the other day so maybe he can be a full 6 foot 3.
Anonymous said on 30/Aug/07
I say hes a little over 6'1 because hes just a inch tall than michel madsen in reservoir dogs
REV. said on 3/Jul/07
I saw him at the Grid House premiere here in Austin where it was filmed. He was wearing cowboy boots that gave in about an inch and was right about 6'1 to 6'1 1/2. The Clooney difference in From dusk till dawn is about 2 full inches so he's probably 6'0 flat bare footed.
Anonymous Rex said on 7/Jun/07
Del Mar
I don't remember Uma Thurman towering over Tarantino. And what do you mean by "towering"
Del Mar said on 19/Apr/07
He's a max of 6-1, most likely 6 flat. Look at several pictures of him with other actors, and Uma Thurman towers over him, which she wouldn't done if he was close to 6-3.
G-unit said on 16/Apr/07
looks 6'1, not taller
Antron said on 13/Feb/07
He definitely didn't look taller than Sam Jackson in Pulp Fiction, around the same at the tallest, but closer to 6'1" would make more sense to me.
J. said on 14/Apr/06
One thing that I noticed just as I was looking at some photos of Tarantino is that he's a pretty big guy, girth-wise! Did he gain weight in the last few years or was he always that sturdy? As far as height, I vaguely remember a Rolling Stone article in where the writer said something to the effect of "Tarantino is actually more than 6 feet yet doesn't appear like he is". I think 6'1.5" is a good estimate.
Uma factor said on 3/Apr/06
At the MTV Movie Awards years back when Uma won for The Bride, she asked QT onto the stage. With her heels buckled UP, he struggled towards her height.
Mario said on 16/Feb/06
I think that he is easily 188/ 189 cm, the problem is his posture.
TNTinCA said on 15/Feb/06
He did look quite a bit taller than Clooney in From Dusk til Dawn. So I can easily see him in the 6'2" range.
Anonymous said on 18/Jan/06
Watch Pulp Fiction again and see that he's no taller than John Travolta who's 6'0" and Samuel L. Jackson who's 6'2".
MOF said on 31/Dec/05
I just met hime and spoke with him for 10 minutes here in a special triple Kung-Fu feature in Iceland. He was maybe 6'1, my 6'1.5 friend (187cm exactly) stood right next to him and he was noticably taller than Quentin, he also noticed it. I'm 5'11, Eli Roth was there and he was my size, couldn't see exactly how tall but definately in the 5'11 range. But Quentin is definately smaller than 187cm, probably 184cm or 185. I couldn't take any photos since no one was allowed to take pictures...
Leo Is Tall! said on 22/Dec/05
He's not 6'2" Check out yesterday's Boston Globe living arts section page 3.
There's a photo of Quentin, Clin, and another guy and Clint has 1 or 2cm on Quentin.
Mario Nariano said on 31/Oct/05
I would give him 6 ft 2. You have upgraded Uma and QT is exactly 2 inches taller than her.
The Count said on 5/Aug/05
I used to work at the Arclight theater in Hollywood, and I've stood right next to the guy, with the express purpose of trying to figure out how tall he is. I'm exactly 5'11" and I'd say he's 2-3 inches taller than me, and that 6'2" sounds about right to me.

PS he got fat
Mr. X said on 30/May/05
That 6'3" is hard to believe because wasn't Quentin shorter than Michael Madsen in the movie Resevoir Dogs?
