@ Rampage--Clover - Hello Rampage! I agree that he was shorter and squatter in 'Reservoir Dogs' - near to Chris Penn's height seems reasonable, (his son in the film!) but I decided at the time to write down his optimum height.
I wonder if the pressure of being hefty can cause strain on the spine and thereby accelerate the shrinkage process? It seems feasible! Rob, over to you...! 😕

@Sandy Cowell: He clearly had lost height by Reservoir Dogs. Looked close to Chris Penn. But in his prime he was at least 6ft1, possibly even 6ft1½. Looked identical to Raymond Burr.

Lawrence looks very handsome in the above picture and that's not something I thought I'd be discussing on his page!
I was going to say that I only remember him from 'Reservoir Dogs', playing a hard gangster-type fellow, and that I wouldn't have thought he was quite as tall as 6ft1, but obviously he'll have played different roles which I might have seen, but didn't recognize him in!
I'll stick with his 6ft1 hey day height as a mark of respect!

Could look 6ft2 range in some movies actually. I wouldnt go under this listing. Probably 5ft11 or so in Reservior Dogs

No, Sam. I looked at it closely. It says 6"/2". If it was 6ft1, it would be 6"/1". A "/" or a "-" are used commonly in the height section of an arrest sheet. Now it may very well have been in shoes.

Actually, that character ID that Rampage linked looks to say "6' 1/2"" not 6'2" to my eyes...that shot with Burr though I think near listing is possible.

Requested him a long time ago. He did look a decent 6 ft 1 peak in films like Dillinger and Born to Kill. Yes, he changed a lot over the years. Certainly looked far more intimidating in older years.

He looked this range in Dillinger and Born To Kill. But by Reservoir Dogs he'd probably lost about 2in...

I'm not sure he was the full 6'1" I meant to say!
Sam said on 21/Mar/16
Finally added the wild man! I think he could have been close to this, though I'm sure on his being a solid 6'1" even at peak. By Reservoir Dogs, he looked no taller than Chris Penn, who was a slouchy, fat 5'11".

Looks virtually unrecognisable as a young man...

Fantastic stuff!
