@ Realist,

He did not grow 2 inches after 17.

He was maybe 5'4 at 17 and eventually stopped growing at 5'5.5 or 5'6

Rob , did you check out the videos ? ... Who do you think is taller ?
the shredder said on 12/Jan/08
DUM ... DUM ... DUM ... DUM ! I found it Rob ! ... Tell me who is taller ... Alfonso Ribeiro or Larenz Tate ? ... Go to 9:17 to 9:59 ! Part 2 of the clip is even better to judge ! Go to 5:09 to 5:31 on part 2

They look SAME EXACT height to me ! ... They both have to be 168 , 169 , 170cm !

During the 2000 NBA all star game party in San Francisco @ NikeTown, my brother and his friend met Larenz Tate. To their astonishment he was one of the smallest guys in the room!!! My brother is about 5'8" and couldn't believe how short Larenz Tate was. He says he is NO taller than 5'4", and even that would be stretching it. To this day, I still can't believe him, but why would he lie. He's a good actor tho, so who cares, but since you guys got this site, that's what I heard !!!

glenn said on 29/Mar/07
ah, i see it now.picture the hat off and him standing straight,but not that close to me,heading the direction he is in.what height would you imagine? i see 5-6ish this way.
glenn said on 29/Mar/07
he seemed 5-7 to me.maybe the pavement favors him.
the shredder said on 25/Mar/07
5'6 , no more ! ... he was at best the same height as 5'6ish Alfo on Fresh Prince ! ... If hes 5'6.5 , Then Alfo should have the same listing !
Viper said on 6/Mar/07
Hes always looked 5-6.
MD said on 5/Mar/07
He's not over 5'6", that much is clear.
the shredder said on 5/Mar/07
Rob , he has to be just 5'6 ! He really was NO taller then Alfo on Fresh Prince ... NOT by a mm !
MD said on 4/Mar/07

Editor Rob, you need to look at this one, again, because this dude is 5'6" TOPS.

Editor Rob
sure 169cm might be getting closer, there was a few pics of him with tia carrere on there but her heel size is unknown.
the shredder said on 3/Mar/07
This guy is flat out 5'6 ! thats what he looks with Glennjamin , and thats what he looks with Ludacris ! I think Ludacris only claims 5'8 ? ... this guy is 5'6ish ... also he was eye to eye with Alfonso on Fresh Prince !
kyser_sosay said on 5/Feb/07

about two feet away from each other and I am 5'9"

Glenn said on 24/Jan/06
when in a hurry,I mess up in guessing this time.
CoolJ said on 15/Jan/06
5'6.5 sounds pretty dead-on to me. 5'6-5'6.5 is perfect.. Glenn you need to step up your estimation game, lol.
Glenn said on 15/Jan/06
hmm.I thought he was my height.5-8.I could be wrong.
CoolJ said on 5/Jan/06
Saw him in Dead Presidents next to Tucker. Tucker has a good 6.5-7" on him.

I think Tate is under 5'7
CoolJ said on 23/Sep/05
Finally found a good image of this guy.. Next to 6'1" Kid Rock

That's like a 6.5-7" difference. Maybe not far shorter than 5'7".. but a little I do think.
lu said on 23/Sep/05
Im in unsure...Vivica a fox by her own admission says shes 5'7...At the NBA weekend..She and luda stood right beside each..both waring the same that aswell would make luda 5'7..And in Crash..Luda was atleast 2 inchs taller then larenze tate..I love tis guy as an actor..But im sorry,Hes not 5'7..more so 5'5-5'6
CoolJ said on 10/Aug/05
The guy is definitely more than 1" shorter than Ludacris.

In the movie Crash that is CLEARLY evident.

Probably about 5'6 - 5'6.5
Mr. R said on 27/Jun/05
You folks may be right on Larenz Tate. Did anybody see the best movie of the year, Crash? There is a reason that Larenz and Ludacris were chosen to play together. Larenz makes Luda look tall! I would say Larenz is between 5-5 and 5-6, and Luda is between 5-6 and 5-7!
CoolJ said on 27/Jun/05
Ya, this guy isn't even 5'7. He's 5'6" ish..

Hey Rob, you awaky?
J. said on 27/Jun/05
I was watching Menace II Society this weekend and I realized that I was being
generous to this guy. He's 5'5" max. I'll tell you why: if you compare him in a eye to eye scene with the admittedly 4'11" Jada Pinkett, he's exactly 5-6 inches taller. No more. And I do mean 'exactly'. (I passed the DVD and checked it out for myself). Also compare him to 5'1"- 5'2" Nia Long in Love Jones in their barefoot, face to face scenes and again, he's barely 5 inches taller, if that. Also, my friend who had that party I mentioned in a much earlier post also pegs him as 5'5" as he is friends with Larenz and his brothers and sees them semi-regulary. So, that's good enough evidence, I think.

Was Just on TRL May 10th. He is shorter than DJ Clue. Also at least an inch or two shorter than Ludacris judging from a few clips in the movie "Crash" - 5'6.5"
Kdy said on 29/Apr/05
I have stood beside LT on two separate occassions. I am exactly 5'7 1/2 and we saw eye to eye, so in my personal opinion he is 5'7-5'8
T. said on 2/Apr/05
Okay you def, need to change this... Larenz is at most 5'6 look at him in the Ashanti video, she is towering over him w/ 3 inch heels.
J. said on 28/Mar/05
He's up there with Hill Harper as a talented-yet-pint-sized young actor whose height gets manipulated quite well onscreen. I met Larenz and his brother Larron back at my friend's birthday party in 1996. I recall being shocked by Larenz's lack of height and his brother is even shorter. To be honest with you, I think that Larenz scraps 5'7" barefoot and I can confirm that Larron is around 5'4" at best. They're pretty small people.(Also note that Tate has been casted as two pint sized music legends in the movies: Quincy Jones; Frankie Lymon).
