@highly suspect You own viper. You're 100% right he's 6'0.5.
Jtm said on 9/May/23
starting to doubt he's over 6'0 the more i look at him.
Jesica said on 6/May/23
Chris is under 6'0. He looked 3-3.5" taller than 5'8 Ice Cube. Max 5'11.5
TheDon91 said on 1/Apr/23
could be 6'0.5" He's at least 6 foot even. His height can be deceiving at times. He looks short in the 5th Element compared to Bruce Willis but looks around 6 foot or a little taller most of the time in public.
Andrey Lykov said on 23/Mar/23
I think he was 184 in his prime. 183 is also possible, but not lower.

I’m watching The Fifth Element right now and he looks an inch shorter than 5’11 Bruce Willis. It’s possible they give that illusion for the film as they may have wanted Willis’s character to appear larger.

Didn't look over 6'0" with MJ, but with Chan he could occasionally pull off 184 ish. With Cooper, Jackson and Smith he certainly looked no less than 6'0" and could arguably look a weak 6'1" at times. I think he edged Cooper, albeit only slightly. Samuel was more 6'1" range by 2010. Smith at 6'1.25" is very arguable. 183 is the lowest I'd go. 184 is the most I would give him.
Jug said on 4/Jun/22
I feel like he would have claimed 6’2 if he were the full 6’1. I think this listing is accurate for a peak height. He did appear tall and lanky in Rush Hour. Strong 6’0 at least.

Who cares about Cooper

I just showed a pic where Tucker looks
6-0 at most next to a 6-2 measured NFL player.

Maybe you need to get your eyes check. When you come at the king, you better not miss

highly suspect said on 7/Apr/22
100% Tucker is taller than Cooper. Viper you need to get your eyes checked. The only pics where Cooper looks taller he is standing way closer to the camera or they have weird angle. Tucker is taller in every pic where they are standing side by side. Cooper has proportionally higher eye level than Tucker but in some of those side by sides Tucker even edges him out at eye level.

And we all know Cooper is a notorious lift/high heeled shoe wearer.
Jawilder said on 14/Jun/21
Solid 184 cm, perfect listing. Would be surprised if he fell below this at a low.

Dom5'11.5 said on 10/Jun/21
There's no way he is under 6', he consistently looks tall, a 5'10.5 guy will look average and no where near tall let alone among hollywood actors. 6'0.5 range definitely 183.5cm minimum. height can be deceptive sometimes, you can look shorter than someone just because you don't have a good posture or shoewear, but looking at his overall frame and appearance in many movies you can deduce he's easily over 6'
Average Heighted Male said on 29/Apr/21
He can't be 6"1" at all, no freakin' way!
In 'The Fifth Element' he was at least 2-3 inches smaller than Bruce Willis,who is barely 6foot himself. Even with Chris' poofy hairstyle and lean build at the time of filming he looked average.
Most likely a flat 5'10½_5'11" guy, as Willis is a solid 5'11¾,6' guy.
Also looked no bigger than Samuel L.Jackson in Jackie Brown,when Jackson had 2" over him.
Jackie Lee said on 20/Mar/21
Looks about 4 inches taller than 5'9 peak jackie chan
MaskDeMasque said on 26/Feb/21
6'0.5. He had 4.5 inches on ice cube and was 4.5 inches shorter than that 'tiny' guy in Friday.
Hyper said on 3/Dec/20
Rob, how tall does Chris Tucker look next to Max Von Sydow?

Click Here

Max did lose height, but Tucker doesn’t look under 184 cm, next to Max, even with camera disadvantages.
Editor Rob
I could still see Max nearly 2 inches taller, he has quite a long head in comparison to Tucker, albeit Chris was raising eyes a bit (reducing the size).
Pat m said on 28/Nov/20
Weak 6ft1, looked tall in Friday but he was in the movie with 5ft8 ice cube so he would look tall, I'd say he is at least 6ft.75 looking at him with Bradley cooper
Jkiller said on 22/Oct/20
6'0.5 to be fair.
TheDon1528 said on 25/Sep/20
6 foot even
Dream said on 15/Jul/20

I think Tucker is at least this listing. The top of his head is higher than Bradley Cooper. He doesn't have thick hair, nor does he wear lifts.

Most of the time, Tucker looks taller.
HeightRealist said on 8/Jun/20
No Rob. Tucker is above average, but sub 6 foot. max 181cm.
Rommie Fritz said on 6/Jun/20
He looks 185cm in rush hour one and 182cm in rush hour 2. Its really hard to tell but either one is good enough for a male anyway. If I have to make a guess, it shall be a strong 184cm for Chris Tucker. Meaning that during height measurement, that number is attained by pressing down all the way and without shoes.
viper said on 24/May/20
6-0 at most, like Keanu
Devin Tyrese said on 22/May/20
6ft 1/2in recorded as 6ft 1in on google is not that bad. Definitely not bad at all...
Chris Bradley Brady said on 4/Mar/20
viper, who would be a guy you would be willing to bet money on that rob has listed at six feet who you believe is absolutely not that height?

Tucker is 6'1".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Dec/19
@Viper and Dream
In some pics, Tucker looks taller, and in others, Cooper does. I'd personally put Tucker at 6'0". He looked more 5'11.5" range next to Magic though.
Daycringeothon said on 11/Nov/19
Weird how in the Bruce Willis film the 5th Element he looks 5’10”-5’11”. Honestly possibly shorter.

Jackie Chan is probably 5’8” on a good day.
viper said on 5/Nov/19
Disagree 100 percent.

Cooper is taller in many of those pics
viper said on 5/Nov/19
Duchovny, Chris Pine, Freddie Prinze Jr
Dream said on 3/Nov/19

Nah. the top of Chris Tucker's head is higher. This is why, eye levels are deceiving.
viper said on 30/Oct/19
He looks shorter than 6-0 Cooper in most of those pics
Chris brady said on 30/Oct/19
looks well over six feet in my opinion. hey viper, who do you think are the most legit six foot guys listed on this site?
Dream said on 29/Oct/19
@Christian @Viper

I have to disagree, lightly. He’s taller than Chris Brown, who’s listed 6’0.25”.

Click Here

He also Looks taller than 6’0.5” listed Bradley Cooper.

Click Here

I wouldn’t put him under this listing.
viper said on 14/Oct/19
He might only be 5-11 range.

This listing is way too high
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/19
He looks around 6'0" with 6'7.5" listed Magic Johnson (mind you that Tucker has on slippers while Magic's barefoot) and that's only based on Magic's 6'7.5" listing. He's likely more 6'7", which puts Tucker even lower. Click Here
berta said on 11/May/19
184-185 is what he looks. i think 184 cm flat i too low. o dont think he is the full 185 cm but maybe 184,5 legit
Angus said on 2/Feb/19
Tucker is 6' and Jackie can is 5'9"

Editor Rob
At times he seems like he could pull off near 185cm
Robby Harris said on 22/Dec/18
Tucker looked at least the same height as 6'0.5" listed Bradley Cooper, and often a fraction taller around the release of "Silver Lining's Playbook": Click Here Click Here Click Here

But he never appeared to have more than about 4" or so on Jackie Chan. Here's a shot from Rush Hour 1 in 1998, when Chan was probably still 5'8.5" or thereabouts: Click Here and some other pics around the release of Rush Hour 3 in 2007: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here

I found an interesting pic of Tucker and Sly from 2008, but unfortunately it's badly angled, so it's not easy to tell the true difference: Click Here but here's Sly's footwear from the event: Click Here There could be lifts involved, considering the chunkiness of his shoes, but it's also hard to tell how tall he appeared at that event, considering his height varied in photos with Arnold Schwarzenegger there: Click Here Click Here
Dhouser said on 15/Dec/18
Seems about right next to Samuel L. Jackson in Jackie Brown, I'm watching it rn and I wondered about his height. He looks kinda lanky there, too.
James Keffer said on 8/Nov/18
Click Here he definetly looks in the 184-185 cm range with 176 cm Michael Jackson. I'll give him 6'0.75
MAD SAM said on 21/Aug/18
I would say he’s over 184.5 cm at 6’0.75”
Robby Harris said on 21/Jun/18
Do you consider 6'1" a possibility Rob?
Editor Rob
Sometimes I could see the possibility, but generally I've thought he falls just under that mark.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 20/May/18
Taller than Bradley Cooper. No reason to doubt 6'0 5/8ths."
anca said on 21/Mar/18
1.82, 10 cm over jackie chan
berta said on 14/Mar/18
average guess seems about right 184,5 dude. 6 foot 5/8.
Chase said on 9/Mar/18
Yeah looks a hair taller than cooper. Tucker seems to be in the 6 1/2 to 6 3/4 range while cooper is in the 6 1/4 to 6 1/2 range.
The Film Fan said on 4/Mar/18
I agree, he looks closer to 6’ 1” than he does 6’ flat.
Paleman said on 22/Feb/18
I was thinking that he would be closer to 6 foot flat than 6'1 but after seeing a few pictures of him with Bradley Cooper and Will Smith I'm pretty sure he can't be shorter than the current listing. Often looks even a hair taller than Cooper... I'd give him almost 6'1, 6'0.75 could be on the spot for this guy.

Rob, do you have any estimate on his son Destin? I googled some pictures and he looks to be at least the same height as his father, if not even taller.
Junior Hernandez said on 8/Feb/18
Tucker is definitely taller than Bradley Cooper. Cooper 6'0-6'0 1/4 and Tucker 6'0 3/8 to 6'0 5/8
Chase said on 24/Jan/18
“This won’t work! I’m not 6’1!”

dude he 6'1
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 19/Nov/17
It seems like so many celebrities fall into this 6’ 0 1/4-6’0 3/4 range. So many celebrities are apparently between 6 ft. and 6 ft. 1.
Harris said on 18/Nov/17
Rob: is 6'1" a possibility for Tucker? After looking at him with Cooper, Smith and several others I personally wouldn't rule that height out.
Junior said on 13/Nov/17
Bradley Cooper look half inch shorter than Tucker but strange that Kobe Bryant make Tucker look 5'11.75".
Harris said on 25/Oct/17
What do you think his eye-level is, Rob?
Editor Rob
looks average after a quick look.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 10/Oct/17
Also, Kobe Bryant has the camera advantage and Tucker is still able to hold very well.
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
@Christian: in some of the kobe pics can look 4"-4.5" less. I'd say he's not above 184 range not less than 183 tho
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 24/Sep/17
He looks 12cm shorter than Kobe Bryant but can't see their footwear. Click Here But I think 183cm is most fitting for him.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 8/Sep/17
6'1" is a stretch, but he really can look taller than he is with Kobe Bryant. He's one of the few to actually hold so well and even come above his eye level comfortably
Mark(5'9.5") said on 2/Sep/17
The old listing really did work. He isn't 6'0.25". He's taller than Bradley Cooper with less footwear.
highlysuspect said on 24/Aug/17
Tucker is full 6'1". Clearly taller than cooper even with shoe disadvantage
Mark(5'9.5 said on 7/Aug/17
He is taller than 6'0.25" Chris Brown with less footwear and looser posture.

Click Here
Mark(5'9.5 said on 7/Aug/17
6'0" tops would mean that Bradley Cooper is 5'11.5" at best.

He really does pull off 185 cm at times.
berta said on 28/May/17
to be exact i think he is right beetween this listing and 3/4 so either listing is fine.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 6/May/17
Also, I don't even notice any difference between peak 6'2" Samuel L Jackson and Chris Tucker.

Click Here

In comparison, here is current Samuel L Jackson with 6'2" Ryan Reynolds. Don't give me that poor excuse of Reynolds having poor posture because Jackson doesn't have the best posture either.

Click Here
Mark(5'9.25") said on 30/Apr/17
Looks abit taller than a slouching 6'1.5" Will Smith though Tucker has better posture.

Click Here
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Apr/17
6'0" would also mean that Will Smith was no taller than 6'1" and Cooper would be 5'11" since Tucker appeared a hair taller than Bradley Cooper.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 28/Apr/17
Tucker's only 6ft since Jordan's 6ft4.5, not 6ft5. He's a decent 6ft'er, but not quite 6ft0.5
Mark(5'9.25") said on 13/Feb/17
Also, Tucker holds well with Peak Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 24/Nov/16
If he was really 5'11", why did he looked taller than Bradley Cooper from the top of their heads.
Mark(5'9.25" said on 18/Nov/16
He edged out Bradley Cooper and looked the same as prime Will smith
josh jeffords said on 6/Nov/16
Cant be if jackie is 5 8 in 90s tucker is 5 11 on a very good generous day.
He was much smaller than a slouching sam jackson who is billed 6 1 ish.
He was maybe a good 1 to 1 .5 on sheen who is likely well under 5 9 again a weak 5 11 best case.
Due to his very thin build and long arms he looks taller than he is.
Looks maybe 4 inches taller than don cheadle who is maybe 5 7 who made jackie look a big 5 8.
plus he comes in way short with sun ming shortest he looks do the math ming is 40 percent taller.
this all funny as he constantly makes fun of shorter guys need a big hit about 5 10. 5 to 511.
Mark said on 1/Sep/16
Google listed Tucker at 6'0", but some sites list Tucker as 6'1". I think 6'0.75" is a better guess since Tucker edges out Bradley Cooper and is equal to Prime Will Smith, not to mention he comes above Michael Jordan's eye level (Michael Jordan is 6'5").

Rob do you think 6'0.75" is a better listing for Tucker or is 6'0.5" still okay for him?
berta said on 29/Aug/16
this height ore 185 but i Think 185 is better.
Mark said on 25/Aug/16
Sun Ming Ming is listed at 7'9" in Google. He towers Tucker here, but then again, this is a 7'8 1/2" - 7'9" person on Chris Tucker.

Click Here
Mark said on 24/Jun/16
after seeing him with Michael Jordan, I think Chris Tucker is probably the strongest 6'0.5" here. He would measure taller than Henry Cavill and Chris Pine, both who aren't under the 6 feet range.

Click Here
Mark said on 19/Jun/16
Tucker wouldn't look like a 6 footer, but after seeing him with a prime Will Smith and Bradley cooper, I can't see Christ Tucker at anything lower than 184 cm.
Saqib said on 16/Jun/16
He was like 3 inches taller than jackie in the rush hour films. So either he is 5'11.5 if jackie is listed at 5'8.5 or jackie is 5'9.5 if chris is listed as 6'0.5.

One of them height needs to be changed.
Mark said on 15/Jun/16
I think Chris Tucker would measure 185 cm or 186 cm if he stood straight completely.

Rob, what do you think he would measure?

A) 186 cm / 184 cm
B) 186.5 cm / 184.5 cm
C) 187 cm / 185 cm
D) 185 cm / 183 cm
E) 185.5 cm / 183.5 cm
Editor Rob
maybe B is ultimately a decent range for him, although if you only watched fifth element and seen him with willis you'd think he was not even 6ft!
Mark said on 15/Jun/16
Johno If you think Chris Tucker is actually 5'10" then we should downgrade Chris Pine to 5'10" and Bradley Cooper to 5'10", fool.

Chris Tucker has looked above 6'0" and would measure 6'1" in the morning.
berta said on 25/May/16
Looked at all rush hour Movies this week. ( extremely funny :P) I Think the old listing of a weak 6 foot 1 is closer to the truth. He could look 184 in the third Movie. But he slouches . If he stand tall is Think he could be weak 185. Looks the same height as will smith in photos i dont Think he would look that if he really was 184. And Bradley Cooper and him looks the same and Thats when Cooper has better posture and Mutch higher shoes. Get tooo dda chopppppaaa
Berta said on 23/May/16
i believe he is 1 cm taller than cooper. he and cooper looks to be about the same height ore cooper 0,5 cm taller in some pictures with bigger shoes and better posture. Without shoes and back to back think tucker is 0,5-1 cm taller
james said on 25/Apr/16
Hes 6'0 with shoes on 5'11 barefoot ..I watched Jackie Brown last night he's was about 2 inches shorter than 6'2 Samuel L Jackson
5'11 Guy said on 12/Mar/16
In rush hour movie,character he played was listed as 6'1 so i believe this estimate is right...
Johno said on 4/Feb/16
Perhaps a strong 5'10 might be a better estimate. Taller then average but i don't understand where these 6'0 estimates are coming from. He could be a weak 5'11 at best.

Strong 5'10

Foxx is taller. Footwear bla bla... that difference proof, that something isnt right. And i bet Foxx isnt short a 5foot9
Johno said on 3/Feb/16
Whilst only having 3 inches on Jackie Chan, i don't know how the hell he pulls off looking taller then Bradley Cooper and equal to Will Smith though --- No clue.
Johno said on 3/Feb/16
5'10 - 5'10.25 to me, did not more then 0.5 inches on Mark Rolston who Rob has met.

184.3cm (Night) said on 21/Aug/15
Was watching one of his stand up shows other night and i guessed he was 6'- 6'1 just from seeing him on the stage. Have no idea why people could think he is 5'9, he looks relatively tall and with modest footwear to boot.

Came here just to check Rob's listing and he does fall between the two marks always a good feeling when you guess someone right :)
weirdo said on 20/Aug/15
he is taller than 5"9 Michael Jackson for 3 inches and tall just like Will Smith...H

Monkey, maybe you should remeasure yourself. Sounds more like you're 6'4-5

Monkey, Chris was almost 4 inch inches taller than Michael Jackson in that video. Are you saying Michael is 5'4"?!
Monkey said on 10/Jul/15
I met him whilst he was doing the Michael Jackson video. He's 5'8" at best. I'm 6'0" and I tower over Chris Tucker.

Don't know why actors lie about their heights.
Micho said on 26/Jun/15
With 5"10 Michael Jackson looked around 6"05
grizz said on 20/Jun/15
This listing is as correct as it gets. On SLP he really wore thinner footwear next to Bradley who constantly wore running shoes.
Sean73 said on 7/Feb/15
Looks 6'.0" flat to me.Bradley Cooper had a .5" on him in The Silver Linings Playbook.

he wore thinner sneakers in SLP, at least it appeared that way when they showed their footwear.

I always thought he was comftarbly 6 foot easily I thought he was a 6'2. Probably a 6'1 or very strong 6 foot spot on
James said on 21/Sep/13
Looks taller than Cooper throughout Silver Linings Playbook. Although Cooper is more 182 than 184. Listing is correct, Cooper reels him in height wise at premiers because he had larger heels.
MaskDeMasque said on 12/Aug/13
Looks 6'1 in rush hour films but 6'0.5 is probably right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/13
Looked 186-187cm in Rush Hour.

Chris is 6-1. Hung out with him at party.
Lorne said on 22/May/13
Nah, he's 184, 183.5 minimum. He's got weird posture at times and doesn't look as tall with weight on him, but did look close to 6'1 in rush hour...
Silent d said on 28/Jan/13
Bradley leans in a bit and we know he is a lift wearer. Samunel l jackson was a few inches taller than him in jackie brown. That is weird because that is the only time he doesn't look 6 foot 1. 6 foot 1.

also at the premier of the movie silver linings playbook. Tucker was clearly about an inch shorter than Cooper when they were posing for photos
Johnnyfive said on 24/Nov/12
@Ejel i noticed this too on the movie trailer and instantly remembered both of them being listed on this site at 6'0.5 and 6'0.75. The only explanation i can think of is that Cooper is either wearing lifts or has some serious ground advantage in that shot. My guess is more towards lifts. He wants to be 6'2.
Ejel Khan said on 23/Nov/12
In The Silver Linings Playbook, his new film. Chris Tucker appears an inch shorter than 6'0.5" listed Bradley Cooper, who's stars inthe film. Don't understand it!

Will Smith could be 6-0.5 . Anything over 6-1 is a joke . Even 6-1 could be a stretch . It is true that Will looks 6-0 range with measured athletes.

Jordan is just under 6-5. Chris Tucker is 6-0 Max or just below it.

He's not 182cm James, this height is spot on

well when he was younger he looked 6'0 or just under. i just always thought he was 182cm.

James said on 13/May/11
he's tall and lanky but he's not 6'1 more like 182cm. In the 90's he was really skinny and had long limbs so could easily give of a 6'1 illusion.
Cranberries said on 13/May/11
He looks much, much taller due to his small head; looks like his head could fit inside of Jackie Chan's. Has the proportions and carries himself like a 6'3" man, but he's only about 6 foot.
Iggy said on 8/May/11
Hey Rob, I'm 176cm (5'9) and 18 years old, could I reach 6'0 one day?... its only 7cm away

Editor Rob
a small minority grow from 18-21, I wouldn't get any hopes up for it.
ej said on 3/Apr/11
i would give him atleast 6'0 but yea max 6'1
James said on 27/Mar/11
5'11.75 (182cm). He's slightly smaller than Will Smith who may not even be a full 6'1.
Anonymous said on 10/Feb/11
It said 6 foot 1 in Rush Hour on his Police Licence
random said on 19/Jan/11
Always thought he was 6ft3. He always seemed tall next to Chan. Saw Chris T at an event, he 5ft9 mabye 5'10 max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/10
6"0.75 is spot on because he was exactly 2 inches shorter than Samuel L Jackson
Hugh 190cm said on 4/Jun/09
I used to think this guy was 5ft9 or 5ft10! His voice probably gave me that impression. He actually has the voice of a 10 year old.

i would say he's 5'4 heres a recent pic of him with chris brown, chris tucker, and shaq Click Here
James said on 15/May/09
I saw 6'1 in Rush Hour
Anonymous said on 23/Apr/09
I thought he was 6 feet tall because he said that when he was taking the piss out of jackie chans character in rush hour 1 or two might of been two when there in there robes about to fight the badies.
Lionel said on 13/Mar/09
look Bruce Willis height in the 5th element
TELLEM said on 16/Feb/09
he was described as 6'1 in rush hour part 1. hes either 6'1 or a tad bit under. he was shorter than 6'2 samuel l. jackson in "jackie brown" by 1.5 inches.
Mr. R. said on 13/Feb/09
I saw Chris tonight at The NAACP Awards. I might even give him a full 6-1. He actually remembered me from the dinner the night before!
Mr. R. said on 12/Feb/09
I met Chris today at a golf tournament. We spoke a long time and shared dinner together. I also took a pic with my camera phone. Rob's height is right on. Chris was a little taller than me, and a little more when he stood straight up. Soon as I can figure out how to send the pics from my phone to email, I will put them up.
Alex2401 said on 18/Jan/09
So you people are saying there is 4 inch diference between Jackie Chan and Chris
Tucker.No Way!That's 10cm,no way.Chris is 180-182 max.
Hugh said on 11/Dec/08
Yeah this seems right. Maybe 186cm if he stands properly.
Timmy said on 7/Dec/08
I thought he was 6ft2.
Jon said on 26/Nov/08
i stand next to a 6ft1 guy and he always looks 6ft2. its strange. its like a psychological thing that gives everyone you see an extra inch. Tucker would probably look 6ft2 if i met him in person
Ender said on 9/Nov/08
Did you see the shoes he wore in the Fifth Element? thos things gave him AT LEAST a 4 inch lift XD
NATE said on 3/Nov/08
in Rush Hour Chris Tucker's character gave Jackie Chan his badge and Chan said "This won't work. I'm not 6'1"." It makes sense that he is 6'1" or a little bit under it.
anonymous said on 14/Oct/08
I would say he's about 186cm because Jackie Chan is 175cm and maybe they made those asian guys in the movies look tall.
Derek said on 24/Sep/08
Tucker is 6'1" at best. Definitely not 6'2".

Viper said on 20/May/08
I dont know why the Rock says he is the same height as Tucker.
daniel said on 19/May/08
Chris Tucker is definetely around 6 to 6'1, in the movie Rush Hour 3 which I assume Jackie Chan is 5'8, Chris had a good 4-5inches taller than Chan.
guest said on 19/May/08
chris tucker is around 6 2, because he has a picture with my stepfather who is 6 1 and tucker is taller
wtf? said on 1/Mar/08
its hard to belive that Chris tucker is that tall because in the 2001 celebration concert for michael jackson. mj, usher and chris tucker all seem to have the same height althoug jackson is a bit shorter and it would be impossible for usher to look as tall as chris since according to this site he is no more than 5ft 8 (173cm) which means that chris would tower over usher with 4.75 inches(12cm) and that doesnt seem like it in the perfomance.
dmeyer said on 18/Feb/08
after looking at pics near arnie and arnie bits him i think the guy is 6' to 6'1.25 waking up and 6;0.5 by dinner time like wentworth
tim said on 22/Dec/07
yuh hes probably around 5'11 or maybe he is 6 foot he had about 4 inches on ice cube in friday and cube is 5'8
C. said on 15/Dec/07
He looks around 6'1", but I will admit that in "The Fifth Element" he looks shorter than Bruce. However, it's very likely Bruce wears lifts since he does say he's taller than 6', not to mention in those movies he always wears boots or some sort of tough-guy shoe since he IS the hero and all.
dmeyer said on 21/Oct/07
6 ft 0.5 in might be more accurate
Valeri said on 23/Sep/07
tucker looks only 6ft in rush hour 3.the whole movie 6ft.he seemd only 3 inches taller than chan the whole movie too.
lenn said on 6/Sep/07
jackie chan is short.. not 5ft9 at all.. seem him in hongkong twice.. looks more like 170range.. is true..
Alex said on 25/Aug/07
Tucker looks at least 6'1 minimum.
Anonymous said on 21/Aug/07
chris tucker was almost 4 inches taller than jackie chan in rush hour so he is 6 ft
James said on 15/Aug/07
Funny in the fitth element looked shorter than Bruce Willis so what would that make willis 6ft2 to 6ft3
6'3'' JK said on 14/Aug/07
I think he is just about 6'1'' he did look just about 4 inches (maybe 5) taller than Jackie Chan in Rush Hour 3
the shredder said on 14/Aug/07
Chris Tucker is most likely 6'0 ! ... Rob , look at him barefoot next to Jackie Chan and John Lone ! ... What do you say ? Tucker 6'0 , Chan 5'9 , and Lone 5'8 ???

thats not a problem i have a friend who is 6'2 and he think we are the same but tucker is taller than me

The Rock saying Chris Tucker is his height comes out of left field. If thats the case than Chris Tucker is at least 6-2.

on getty images he does look 184 cm 6'1 is a lidl high since he looks about 3 in under the rock so like 6'0.25 in maybe but in other pics can look 184 cm so defenetly 6 ft or 6'0.5 in i met brett ratner he was about 5'7.5 and jackie looks 3 cm taller so 5'8.75 in for jackie 175 cm 6'0.5 in for him since he can look 6 ft to 6 ft 1
RICHARD said on 4/Jul/07
Definetly taller than Ice Cube in Friday. He ranges from anywhere to 6'-6'1. 6'2 is pushing it

i dunno about height but chris tucker like GAINED WEIGHT... i see the mtv awards... he's like unrecognizeable

when your fat you appear shorter
another Glenn said on 5/Jun/07
this height would seem spot on, because he was 3 inches taller than 5ft10 Charlie Sheen in Money Talks
K-Man said on 2/Jun/07
To above comment made by Smoke:

No. Average white female height in US is 5'4.6". Rounded to 5'5" that would make the female "equivalent" be approx. 5'8". BUT there are more taller than average men than women due to evolution. By that I mean it is more rare to find a woman who is 5'8" than a man who is 6'1". Sorry for being picky about specifics but I'm gonna be a doosh like that.
footballed28 said on 26/Feb/07
I totally agree with RJ....and I also think the Williams sisters are 5'11 1/2 and 5'9 respectively
RJ said on 24/Feb/07
in my opinion i think hes deffnitly shorter than 6'1. In both the rush hour movies he doesnt look more than 4in taller than jackie chan, also in friday hes only like 3-4in taller than ice cube so i'd say hes more like 6'0 with shoes on, and shorter barefoot.
different Glenn said on 20/Feb/07
he is short, look at the 5th element against bruce willis, tiny like most actors.
different Glenn said on 19/Feb/07
why does he look so super short in the fifth element next to Bruce Willis who is no giant,I find it hard to believe , I think everyone in hollywood is small but I have to say Chris is one funny MF.
footballed28 said on 7/Feb/07
here is one actor whom never appeared taller than 6' to me...he just wasnt much taller than the 5'8 Jackie least no more than 4 inches
S to the C said on 30/Jan/07
i would say chris tucker doesn't wear lifts, but he is maybe 6'0.5" because his height is probably with gym shoes on, so you have to account for that....... also everyone knows tom cruise wears/wore lifts, its not a surprise, he would be taller next to someone seeing as he doesn't want to appear around 5'7"......... bruce willis could wear lifts, a lot of celeb males wear lifts to appear taller, more masculine to everyone.
kene said on 18/Sep/06
jackie chan is only 5ft7(171cm)in barefoot.. he looks a good 6ft tall beside him.. or maybe 6ft.05.. this guy can't be 6ft1..

In the 1997 movie "The Fifth Element" with Bruce Willis (listed on this site as being 5'11 1/2"), there are several scenes with Tucker and Willis and Tucker is a good 2 inches shorter than Willis. Makes no sense if Tucker is 6'1" tall.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 30/Jul/06
Magic was only really 6'7 not 6'9, he kinda makes Chris look like a kid i got to say he could only be 6'0 or possibly 5'11, but thats just to me when he stands by Magic

Chris Tucker's weight gain is actually unbelievable...he looks so different..J-Dog you're right...he's almost unrecognisable..he looks much older as well!
Viper652 said on 24/Jun/06
50 only looks a half inch taller then 5-10 Mase. Click Here

50 also looks shorter then 6-0 Loyd Banks in his G-Unit group. 50 looks just above average in height.

Chris lists his height as 6'1" on his Myspace (the candids in his picture section lead me to believe that it's really him): Click Here
J-Dog said on 23/Jun/06
Wow, those are radical claims, once again. No way is 50 Cent only 5'10.5" that is just ridiculous. Yeah Chris Tucker has put on quite a bit of weight, he almost looks unrecognizable, and he still looks an inch taller than 50 Cent in that picture.
Glenn said on 22/Jun/06
I stood face to face with 50, 3 months ago.he is me.and built like Mike Tyson.

50 Cent is no taller then 5-10 1/2.

So what are you saying? Tucker is 5-9? Couse If 50 cent really is 5-10.5, then based on that picture Tucker looks 5-9.5.

Chris Tucker is probably 6'1. In Rush Hour he doesn't tower over Jackie because he is about 5'9

i met him in l.a in 2001,i'm 184 cm and he was deffinitly at the same height as me,so could be that he's more like 184cm,but maybe could really be 185.
Anonymous said on 31/Dec/05
in rush hour 1 it says 6'1 on his police ID although you cant gurantee a movie ID can you now!
smokeblower said on 15/Oct/05
I agree with Tucker being 6'0". A 6 footer in Hollywood will appear substantially taller than the average non-lift wearing actor. People may comment on his height relative to the picture they have seen of him with Venus Williams saying he is 6'1" based upon the assumption she is 6'1". I doubt she is 6'1", but a strong 5'11"
Anonymous said on 14/Oct/05
In "Friday", Chris Tucker looks like he's about 6'0" flat, cuz Ice Cube is 5'8", and he looks about 4 inches taller than him if Im not mistaken. But I doubt he's a full 6'1". Even though it's a few inches taller than average, that seems to tall for Tucker.
john said on 5/Sep/05
Tucker isnt 6"1, hes quit abit shorter then Bruce Willis in the 5th Element, who is barely 6ft himself.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 16/Jul/05
4 some reason i was thinkin of wat Chris Tuckers height was 2day n I thought 6'1 but 6'0 maybe but I'd say 6'1 is probally his height.
Smoke said on 29/Apr/05
I've never been completely confident in Chris being a rock solid 6'1", but one thing I will say is that Zhang Ziyi is not 5'7"!!! Man, some of the people on here seem to take women's heights for what they are in heals. Proper heights are not measured when you are wearing shoes or especially heals!!! If this was the case, the average man would only be 2 inches taller than the average woman! In most parts of the world the average man is a solid 6 inches taller than the average woman, but listening to some people on this site it would seem as though women are only an inch or two shorter! In many scenes in Rush Hour 2, Chris dwarfed both Zhang and Roselyn Sanchez, of course when Zhang is in 3-4 inch heals she won't be dwarfed by Chris Tucker. If you look on wireimage, you will see Chris looking considerably taller than Venus and Serena Williams, even when they are in heals (and Venus is supposed to be same height as Chris). I agree with the editor, he's close to the 6'1" mark.
Anonymous said on 28/Apr/05
He is shorter than 185.on rush hour 2 he stood next to 170 zhang ziyi and she was on 6 cm heels and he was just 5cm taller
Smoke said on 25/Mar/05
Okay I'm wrong on the Ray Romano part, he is actually looking 6'3" in that pic with James, Woods, and Tucker. Woods is an inch taller than Tucker, and Romano is an inch taller than Woods...Kevin James is looking about 5'9" in that picture as well.
Smoke said on 25/Mar/05
Nah Chris is definately taller, he's definately 4-5 inches taller than Jackie. That being said, Jackie isn't quite the tiny guy people may believe him to be. I saw some pics of Chris with Venus Williams (who is supposedly 6'1", but I think her long legs can be a little bit deceiving), both Williams sisters were in heals and Chris looked easily 3 inches taller than supposedly 5'10" Serena, and easily an inch taller than supposedly 6'1" Venus. I think Chris is a solid 6'1" (no giant, but definately a fair bit taller than Jackie), however I think Serena Williams is 5'9" on a good day, while Venus is probably closer to 6'0" than 6'1". This guy is interesting though, because he takes pics with many other prominent people. Chris is definately a 6'1" guy, but beside him Jamie Foxx looks about 3 inches shorter, and Woody Harrelson only looks 2 inches shorter, Kevin James is about 4-5 inches shorter, and Tiger Woods about an inch taller, and Ray Romano is looking very much 6'2" rather than 6'3".
Smoke said on 4/Mar/05
He looks pretty small sometimes in Money Talks, and doesn't really tower over CHINESE people in Rush Hour 2. But 6'1" isn't really as tall as people make it out to be. I'm 6'1" and I don't really tower over most guys, it's only about 3 inches taller than average and is the male equivalent of a woman being 5'7". I do feel like I tower over a lot of girls though...but not as bad as a guy who's 6'4" towers over people.
