Omar Sy's Height
6ft 2 ¾ (189.9 cm)
French actor best known for roles in films The Intouchables, X-Men:Days of Future Past, Samba and Micmacs. In an interview mentioned on VelvetCinema he described himself as 190 cm.
My height is an advantage. But when you are Samba, it's different. It's a disadvantage to have that height. When you work, you don't want to be noticed. So you have to hide - the way you tilt your head, you speak less loud. Everything is changed.

After seeing him in Jurassic World, even though he's filmed a lot in the background perhaps to make Chris Pratt look more commanding but even the fairest shots he looks pretty much the same height as Pratt. There a chance that Sy's more 6'2" range? He looks shorter on screen than someone like Lance Reddick.

Omar with Tom Hanks .... Really he don't look more than 6'2 or 6'2 , not?
Is there a chance that he has shrunk despite having 40yo ?

Rob ,u believe maybe Omar height was a solid 6'2.5 youngster? in any case 6'3.5 with shoes?
Yes I think so

Hello Rob , How really you believe was Omar' young? , In a lot of recent photos he don't look more than 6'2 or 6'2.5, but he only have 40'yo
Maybe at times his posture isn't so good and he seems only 6ft 2?

Rob, here is Omar sy next to 185-186 cm Tony Parker... What can be his absolute lowest height? What about 189 cm?
Sy generally looks over 6ft 2 most of the time when he stands well, so I think 189 might be a low range for him.

Rob, out of this guy, Elba and Emerick who do you think would come out tallest?
Editor Rob: hard to pick one out!
said on 24/Oct/16
Rob,could he be "just" 188,5-189 cm at his lowest?
Editor Rob: always thought he could look nearer 6ft 3 than 2, but I wouldn't rule out that range of nearly 189 either.

I do them for 10-15 minutes. I'm an exercise finatic
[Editor Rob: it's something I've had Jenny do the last 6 months.
And no, she won't grow taller from it - the purpose is to help her posture and discs as she's in that age (mid 40's) were she's now experienced a fraction loss, and I'm trying to help slow it.]

Rob, does that mean I could clear the 6ft4 out of bed?
sorry to keep badgering you...I'm doing a lot of stretches to keep my spine in top shape
[Editor Rob: I would expect you to clear that mark.
I'd recommend anybody to do some basic stretching as they age if they want to reduce height loss. Don't need much, but just a few minutes a day.]

Rob, I measured 191.6cm at 11:00pm last night.
Can I claim 6ft3½?
[Editor Rob: yes I would go with that mark if I were you.]
said on 14/Mar/15
190cm is 6'3. Not 6'2 3/4. 191 is 6'3 1/4.
[Editor Rob: The nearest 1/4 we have for 190 would be 6ft 2.75. 6ft 3 is one of the few feet/inch marks that has a cm value that is right in middle of two cm's, namely 190 and 191. 190.5 (6ft 3) could be rounded to either 190 or 191, both are as close to 6ft 3 as each other...

Rob, just out of curiosity, how tall do you think the other actor from The Intouchable, Francois Cluzet, is? He gets listed at 5'8.5...
[Editor Rob: might be possible, somewhere in that 5ft 8-8.5 range.]

Rost 191-192 cm
Mr. V said on 13/Mar/15
Glad of being of service.
said on 13/Mar/15
He did however say 190 cm here:
[Editor Rob: I'll add that at top.]
Mr. V said on 13/Mar/15
Taking a second look at the interview, it was actually the interviewer who said 190.
Anyway, around 6'3" mark.
Andrea said on 12/Mar/15
He can look only 189-190 at times, you yourself said he was "nearly 6'3" when i asked you, Rob. But 6'3 is still ok, i guess!
said on 12/Mar/15
He said 'I'm black, 190 cm and scary' here:
So, 6'2.75 is more accurate.
