Rob do you think there's a chance he hit 190cm with his peak height? Maybe that's where he got his 6'3 claim.
berta says on 10/Jul/14
not peak height of 189 anymore?
mike says on 6/Jun/14
6ft 2 peak 6ft 1.5-.75 today.

@jtm: I don't know what photos of Jackson and Hiddleston you've been looking at, because Hiddleston is barely taller, if at all. He's under 6'2 nowadays but a flat 6'1 is too low. I'd go 6'1.5 in 2014, maybe 6'2.5 peak.
Andrea says on 3/Jun/14
Lol, Rob, at first i thought he was dead, because you removed his peak height... This is for sure more accurate because he never looked a mm over 6'2 to me, not even at his peak! Now he can look barely 6'1 a lot!

@Editor Rob: He really isn't a 6'2 guy anymore. He has consistantly looked nearer 6'1 as of late. Time for a downgrade.
[Editor Rob: today he can be 6ft 1.5...he also sometimes wears flatter footwear at events]
jtm says on 20/May/14
inch shorter than tom hiddleston. he is not 6'2 anymore.
the shredder says on 14/May/14
He is 6 '1 , He looks it with waltz also. Peak 6 '2
Alex 6'0 says on 12/May/14
Here are pics of Sam Jackson and Chris Evans together. Evans is listed 6'0 on here and looks about that maybe 5'11.5 at worst. He has a bit more footwear than Jackson has but still Jackson doesn't look anything over 6'1 if Evans is 6'0. No way a 2 inch difference even taking into account the small footwear advantage.

He looked 6'1 with Chris Evans in Captain America
Andrea says on 24/Apr/14
Rob, do you really think he was two big inches taller than John Travolta in Pulp Fiction? He looked maybe 1.5 inch taller than John, to me... And considering that John was 6' range, it's hard to believe he was ever over 6'2. Today he looks more and more 6'1... His 6'3 claim is quite hilarious
[Editor Rob: he could look just 6ft 2 flat]
Magnus says on 24/Mar/14
Strong 6'2 peak

Rey says on 22/Mar/14

Click Here I thing he actually is 6' 1.
Freddy says on 15/Feb/14
hmm, I can buy 6'2 in the 90s but nowadays he looks 6'1
Johnny Blaze says on 30/Jan/14
I'm 6'2 and walked right next to him in a store and he was a little taller than me. 6'2.5-6'3 is correct.

Dejavu says on 12/Oct/13
He could be 6'1.5 now.
Silent d says on 5/Oct/13
187cm. One of the greatest and coolest actors! Pulp fiction is epic! He always looks around 6 foot 2 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Sep/13

Deffo 6ft 1.5 next to will smith

Dmeyer says on 17/Jul/13
Péak 6'2 2.25 on a good day now 6'1-1.25
cole says on 27/Jun/13
Personally I think he can look 6'1 or a tad under now a days, with a slouch of course. You can still see that his spine is quite intact, and his shoulder-height is close to what it used to be, but his head seem to have fallen down a bit in his neck, and he's more hunched over, and therefore looks 184-185 cm range next to 183 Hayden Christensen for example. If he stood straight he would probably measure around 186-187 cm, but he is not 188 cm anymore, probabl wasn't much taller than that at peak either.
6'2 or 6'2.25 at peak - 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 today.
Sam says on 25/Jun/13
He's about 1.5 to 2 inches taller than Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio:

Why do so many people on this website constantly have to downgrade people. It's annoying.
Dejavu says on 11/Jun/13
A tad under 188cm?
Lenad is sexy says on 2/May/13

lenad is sexy says on 13/Apr/13

lenad is sexy says on 30/Mar/13
I think hes a weak 6'2 now. Nipping 188cm. The 6'1 max claims are utter bull though
Dmeyer says on 29/Mar/13
6'2-2.25 peak 6'1.5-1.75 now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Mar/13
189-190cm/6ft2.5-2.75 prime
187.5-188cm/6ft1.75-2 today
Nerfherder says on 28/Feb/13
looked super tall in the parking lot scene in Spike Lee's "School Daze". still 6'2 nowadays, but only just.
HollywoodFan says on 25/Feb/13
After seeing the Avengers "roll call" with Sam and the rest of the film's cast a number of times, I'm convinced he's the same height as Chris Evans, a midgen taller than director Joss Whedon, listed as 5'10.5"
TheDiva says on 6/Feb/13
I've know sam for 12 years. He has shrunk over the years and is now just over 6'1"
he was close to 6'3" when we met. he's lost about an inch.
Balrog says on 7/Jan/13
6'2'' at peak is possible but now he looks 6'1'' at the very most.
FACE says on 27/Dec/12
Peak 6'2.5 (189 cm)
Now 6'1.25 (186 cm) - 6'1.5 (187 cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12
Looked 6ft2.5-6ft3 range with ease up until to the late 1990s and Mr.R has confirmed that Jackson is still 6ft2 on the dot.
DanMan says on 14/Dec/12
More like 6'1

Lenad is sexy says on 16/Nov/12
I think he still is 6'2ish
Mr. R says on 8/Nov/12
I saw Sam at an awards show Monday night. He is exactly 6-2.
James says on 4/Nov/12
Strange he could look under 6'2 next too Jeff goldblum
Aragorn 5\'11 says on 25/Oct/12
He looked 1.5 inches shorter than David Morse (6'4) in the Negotiator.
Silent d says on 21/Oct/12
I think he was 6 foot 3 at peak. Now about 187cm is right.
logan noll 1996 says on 21/Oct/12
He shrunk but is 6'2 despite being 63-64 years old. Really tall guy.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 20/Oct/12
Take a look at the shoe difference in the movie "The Other Guys".
The Rock has always shoe advantage over him (he wears always 1.5-1.6 boots), while Jackson wears thin shoes, that's because you can see a difference of 2+ inches between them.

The Rock is 6'2.5-6'2.75, and Jackson today is 6'1.5 and was 6'2-6'2.25 at peak.

Just take a look at "Unbreakable", he looked a lot taller than Bruce Willis in that movie, and Willis is still 5'11 today.

Conclusion? A peak of 6'2-6'2.25 for Jackson is reality.
matt678 says on 8/Oct/12
looked about 6 ft 2.75 peak now a days i would say nothing over 6 ft 1.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Oct/12
Yeah I think 187cm looks plausible now, but no lower than that.
I'm confidant that he was close to 6ft3 as a young man.
Silent d says on 3/Oct/12
Considering he is an old man, i think 187cm is solid.
matt678 says on 18/Sep/12
smauel l jackson looked 6 foot 3 next to hayden chrisensen
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/Aug/12
Die Hard 3 - had about 2in on Bruce Willis so 6ft1.5-2 tops. Bad posture though.
Patriot Games - struggled to look over 188cm with Harrison Ford who had hair advantage.
Pulp Fiction - looked at least 6ft2 standing in the hallway with Travolta who was slouching terribly.
Shaft - looked near 6ft3 (approx.189-190cm) with Christian Bale.
Jackie Brown - 2in on Chris Tucker. Only time he's ever looked his claim.
SWAT - a good 1in on LL Cool J and dwarfed Colin Farrell.
Jungle Fever - made Wesley Snipes look like a kid. Easily the tallest cast member
