Robert Pattinson’s height has always been a topic of conversation. The British actor is often described as being incredibly handsome and amazingly charming, which of course he is. But his height has always been the other part of the equation. People seem to either love or hate the fact that Robert Pattinson is such a tall man. On the one hand, his height gives him an advantage in getting many roles, as he can usually look down on the people he is acting with or playing against. On the other hand, it can be quite the disadvantage when trying to have a normal conversation with someone of the same height. This article is going to attempt to set the record straight on just how tall Robert Pattinson actually is. We will not be discussing his weight, as he is pretty much in the same height range as the next person. So sit back and get your steinkickers ready, because here we are:
His Height Is… Almost Elite: Almost Elite
Before we get into the details of just how tall Robert Pattinson is, it is important to point out that he is not actually *that* tall. In fact, he is only a few inches taller than the next tallest person on this list. He is of a similar height to the actor and singer Mark Wahlberg. So let’s have a quick refresher on the A-Lists on Mark Wahlberg:
- 190 lbs
- 31 years old
It should come as no surprise that Mark Wahlberg is one of the most popular people on this list, as he is well-known for being incredibly tall and lanky. He also happens to be one of the most beloved actors of our time, so it should come as no surprise that he is also one of the most Googled people. And who doesn’t love a guy whose movies are so entertaining that they become household names? In fact, one of the best things about Mark Wahlberg is that no matter what the occasion is, there is always a fun anecdote to share about his height.
Although he is not in the same height category as the previous two A-Lists, we should probably mention that Robert Pattinson is actually a little bit taller than the actor Jason Schwartzman. They are both, in fact, roughly the same height. However, Jason Schwartzman is much thinner than Robert Pattinson, so let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he is actually 5’10”. The point is that these guys are all within the same height category. And for the record, Robert Pattinson is also slightly shorter than the singer Demi Lovato. So to recap, here are the A-Lists on Robert Pattinson:
- 173 lbs
- 31 years old
The Truth About His Height: No One is Quite Tall Enough
Although he is not the tallest person on this list, Robert Pattinson is, in fact, the second tallest person we will discuss. And before you judge me for putting Mark Wahlberg and Jason Schwartzman on this list just to make it look like I am not that far off, let me remind you that Mark Wahlberg was actually the second choice of the list’s author. The original idea was to have the actor and singer Ben Affleck. Although Ben Affleck is not that far off the mark, it just so happened that Mark Wahlberg was available and interested, so he ended up on this list. Which is precisely why we have Mark Wahlberg and not Ben Affleck.
Although Robert Pattinson is not the tallest man alive, for whatever reason, he still insists on being called’sir’ by the elevator operators. So if you want to be extra careful, you should probably call him ‘Mr. Pattinson’. But as far as his height goes, he is, in fact, the second tallest man we know of. And to prove it, here is the list of the Top 10 tallest actors currently working in Hollywood:
- Robert Pattinson (second from top)
- Leonardo DiCaprio (third from top)
- Will Smith (sixth from top)
- Channing Tatum (seventh from top)
- Brad Pitt (ninth from top)
- Eddie Murphy (tenth from top)
- Tom Hanks (tenth from top)
And here is where the fun part begins. Because at this point, you are probably thinking that a 13 inch Google stiching discrepancy is not even worth mentioning, as there is no way that Robert Pattinson is the second tallest man alive. Or are you?
See, what we have here is not actually a discrepancy at all. The fact is that Robert Pattinson *is* the second tallest man alive, as he is only 13 inches shorter than the actor and singer Robin Thicke. In other words, unless you are going to cite some ridiculous length measurement that has little to do with reality, there is no way that Robert Pattinson is not the second tallest person on this list. And to prove it, here is the list of the Top 10 tallest actors currently working in Hollywood, again, with Robert Pattinson in second place:
- Robin Thicke (sixth from top)
- Ben Affleck (eighth from top)
- John David Washington (tenth from top)
- Lee Daniels (12th from top)
- Channing Tatum (seventh from top)
- Gisele Bundchen (nineteenth from top)
So there you have it. Unless you are going to contest that Robert Pattinson is short, there is really no reason to dispute that he is in fact, the second tallest person on this list. And now that we have cleared that up, let’s get back to business. What are his other advantages and disadvantages?
The Advantages of Being Really, Really Tall
Being really, really tall has its perks. For starters, you have a lot of room to move around and play with. You can either stand over people or you can look down on them. It really depends on how you feel about heights. Most importantly, being really, really tall gives you an advantage in getting into character. If you are playing a soldier for example, you can either stand at attention when entering or exiting vehicles or you can swagger like George Patton. It’s all about how you want to play it.
The disadvantages of being really, really tall, however, are numerous. One major disadvantage is that it can be really hard to find clothes that fit you. When you are tall, even the most basic of garments, such as jeans and t-shirts, will become a size larger than you would usually wear. So if you want to keep your wardrobe, you will either have to buy expensive custom made clothing, or you will have to be picky about the styles you wear, as they will never look the same on you as they do on other people. Another disadvantage is that it can be really hard to find shoes that fit. When you are tall, even the most basic of shoe styles, such as boots and flats, will become a size larger than you would usually wear. So if you want to keep your feet warm, especially in the wintertime, you will either have to buy expensive custom made shoes, or you will have to be picky about the styles you wear, as they will never look the same on you as they do on other people. Another disadvantage is that it can be really hard to find people your same size as you. In general, people tend to either dislike or avoid being around tall people, which makes it a little more difficult to socialize. So if you want to be accepted by your peers, you will need to work hard at being friendly and approachable. In conclusion, being really, really tall has its perks, but only if you know how to work with it. Otherwise, you are just trading one set of problems for another, as being really tall brings with it its own unique set of disadvantages.
