Shortest looking tall guy I've ever seen

I wouldn't argue with 6'1" flat but if I had to guess I'd go with 6'0.75". I also think there's a good chance that today 6'0.5" would be the right answer, actually. But at his peak he was closer to 6'1" than 6'0" (if not 6'1".) 6'0.5" in '23 though.

There was a fellow on The Chase today who was seriously into his films. His favourite is Quentin’s Pulp Fiction, and I feel sure that the writer and director would have felt very flattered to hear this. Also starring in it himself, alongside Samuel L Jackson and John Travolta, Mr Tarantino played a guy who wasn’t very happy when Jackson and Travolta turn up at his house with a dead body in their car, whose head had accidentally been shot to a pulp - by accident! Urghhhh!

Harvey Keitel’s expertise was then required…..

6ft1. I saw evidence of this in the film From Dusk Till Dawn, when he was on the run with his brother, played by George Clooney, and you see the two measured. It doesn’t sound like a funny theme, but there’s an awful lot of humour in it, even when they end up in a drinking den overrun by a hive of vampires!

Would have guessed somewhere in 5ft 7-7.5 range.

Could look barely shorter than guys like Michael Madsen and Sam Jackson, not under 6ft1 peak
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Feb/22
Further to my comment on Jamie Foxx's page regarding Quentin's 're-writing of history' through his movies, how about 'Inglourious Basterds', a film in which Hitler perishes before he's done as much damage as he actually did, (well, 'all the rotten eggs in one basket', went up in flames), and then 'Once Upon A Time in Hollywood', a film in which Sharon Tate and the other victims of the callous and evil Manson gang got to live out there lives?

It's nice to have fantasies and share them with the rest of the world!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Jan/22
@ Arch - What a useful tip that is 😆 - thanks so much! I have both films, but haven't seen Leo's 🐺 Street in its entirety yet. That should be one funny experience!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/22
Arch, ahead of Goodfellas?

That’s hard to believe
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/22
I believe Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street currently has the record for number of F bombs, 569. Casino is right up there with 422 too.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jan/22
I've heard that True Romance is the sweariest movie of all time but I think Tarantino's Pulp Fiction must come a very close second. I'm 39 minutes into the film for the umpteenth time and so far, I haven't stopped laughing!

I get that from my Mum, who also found foul language hilarious... 🐓🐤🐦

6ft1. 🤣😂😆👌

6’0.5” for Quentin.
Slim 6'1.75 said on 6/Sep/21
186-187 is too high but flat 6’1” is bang on

Sorry rampage
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Aug/21
Quentin as looked 186-187cm range a lot in this past so a fraction over 6ft1 peak should be strongly considered. Right between Travolta and Jackson in Pulp Fiction, a little shorter than Michael Madsen in Reservoir Dogs
David Tang said on 17/Aug/21
6'1 for quentin. rob when doing heights, do you only consider the height they are at at 1-2pm as the height you list them?
Editor Rob
yeah after being up a few hours. Not really going with out of bed or before bed.

With Quentin, I think many seem to agree he was strong 6ft 1 range
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Aug/21
"Don't give me the finger or I'll have you killed!" So shouts Saul Rubinek's director character in 'True Romance', to a rude motorist who overtakes him, and does this nifty little action: 🖕

Well, a few years later during the same situation, David Lynch takes the scenario a bit further, terrifying the life out of the overtaking chancer, and letting him go on the proviso that he reads up on how to drive properly and with respect for others, and there wouldn't be many guys disobeying the commands of Robert Loggia!

Dear old Quentin gets 6ft1. 😀👌
177cm said on 22/Jul/21
He looks a strong 6’1” most of the time. Could be 6’1.25”
BalticGuy said on 5/Jul/21
"Editor Rob
here is Leo with a Guy who is 6ft 1 and a quarter..."

According to who, the guy? So subtract an inch - I typically do because almost every guy I have ever met exaggerates by an inch to two or includes shoes -

Here's supposedly 6'0" Leo with DEFINITELY NOT 6' Brad Pitt - Pitt's lucky if he hits 5'11" in the morning - and looking shorter despite being in the foreground.

No, Leo is in the 5'10-5'11" range. Which puts Quentin probably a bit over 6 foot - 6'0.5" would be my bet if I were to walk up to him and measure him on the spot without shoes on. I don't buy him being a full 6'1". Maybe in his prime.
Editor Rob
the guy - Dom Byrne - once said the 6ft 1 and a 1/4 back on radio show years back.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/21
Ian C., I agree...Jackie Brown was the last thoroughly decent Tarantino started to slowly go in a weird direction from Kill Bill onwards...Inglorious B, Hateful Eight, Django Unchained and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood are black comedies...the violence has gone past the point of grossing people's just so dumb...and the liberties he took with Sharon Tate and Bruce Lee's portrayals were pretty low brow...a few scenes aesthetically looked incredible though...recreated that graininess of the 60's...and Damien Lewis's portrayal of Steve McQueen stole the show...but the movie doesn't hold up with Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, True Romance or Jackie Brown...I wish he went back to that type of noire...
Ian C. said on 13/Jun/21
As far as I'm concerned, Sandy, Tarantino made his last movie years ago,or at least the last one I was going to see. Except for Jackie Brown, Tarantino has never made a movie with a likeable character. His movies are gleeful celebrations of human indecency. Everybody in them is a vicious, sadistic crook, and the endless evil cruelty of the typical Tarantino movie just drove me away.

I remember when you were supposed to like the heroes of movies. My favorite example of this is the original Magnificent Seven. The Seven are just about the nicest, most decent hired killers you could ever want to meet. No swearing, neatly combed and barbered hair, clothes fresh from the laundry. And when they killed bandits it was always with one shot, and the bandits died instantly and painlessly, without any bleeding whatsoever, and then their corpses evaporated, so nobody had to bury them. Y'know? Movies about violent death were so nice, once upon a time.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Jun/21
I read on my phone the other day that Quentin is thinking of making his last film. Then I read on the same device that he might blow it out altogether, adding that many a writer/director's last film tends to be rubbish.

Quentin couldn't make a lousy film if he tried. Okay, so they're violent, but always interspersed with brilliant humour.

I'd be very upset if Quentin made that decision.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/21
186cm peak for sure. Nowadays might be starting to dip under 6ft1
Almost 180cm guy said on 5/May/21
In my opinion, the 6ft 1.25 can still be argued for Tarantino. As early as 2003, Tarantino looked similar to Michael Madsen's height: Click Here Click Here Click Here
A few more of their joint photos from 2005 in which Tarantino also doesn't seem like a shorter than Madsen: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Rob, you've met Vivic A. Fox and Michael Madsen in person. I really can't see him below 186cm and I think you should give Tarantino an upgrade to at least 6ft 1.25.
Almost 180cm guy said on 26/Apr/21
Hi Rob! In my opinion, 186 cm is a safe assumption for his peak height. Take a look at his photos next to Vivica A. Fox from 2004: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Remember Rob that you met her in person and that she was wearing heels and still seemed a good five inch shorter than Tarantino, even in heels. Can you give him a 6ft 1.25?

Agree Quentin was a legit 6’1” at his peak maybe he lost a bit of height 6’foot 1/2” now
slim 6'1 said on 3/Feb/21
This is exactly how a solid 6’1” guy should look like just like Kevin Costner and Barack Obama
Slim 6'1 said on 20/Dec/20
@Rob, do u think he’s shrunk to weak 6’1” range today?
Editor Rob
You could argue Quentin was solid 6ft 1 and maybe slightly shy of it today.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Oct/20
While watching Quentin's 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood', I noticed that there was an arrow with Mamas and the Papas' Michelle Phillips pointing towards the actress who played her. Next to her was situated Mama Cass, who did not receive an arrow.

Is that because Quentin expects his audience to be 'in the know' that a chubby, dark-haired lady near to slim Michelle simply HAS to be Cass Elliot? She weighed in at 238 pounds, around twice her ideal weight, and didn't mind having her size sung about in one of their songs.

Just another of Quentin's jokes, of course. Has anyone else cottoned on?

6ft1. 😀👍
Kale 186.5 said on 19/Oct/20
Always struck me as being around my height 186.4-186.7

Not huge, but big enough to not be towered by guys in the 6'2-6'3 range.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Oct/20
Well done to Quentin Tarantino for his excellent and absorbing new film, 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'.

I put it on the other night, for my first viewing, while I was very tired, and it woke me right up! It takes a particular type of film to do that - one that really gets the adrenaline pumping. Well, this did it for me, and with a cast which included Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, I felt optimistic about the movie on the grounds of its cast alone.

I noticed that Quentin is in the habit of using fictitious names in more than one of his masterpieces. We heard Harvey Keitel refer to a girl called Alabama in 'Reservoir Dogs' and she came to life in his 'True Romance'. This time round, it was the turn of Antonio Margaritez (**** knows how to spell it!), and this name was the one used by Eli Roth in 'Inglourious Basterds' when, along with Brad Pitt and another guy, he was pretending to the multilingual Christoph Waltz to be Italian upon German actress Diane Kruger's recommendation ("Germans don't have a good ear for Italian", she adds) and failing miserably! In the new film, Antonio Margaritez is cited as the name of a movie director. It did make me laugh because it prompted me to think back to 'Inglourious...' and the mannerisms Eli Roth uses, both facially and otherwise, to express himself.

Yes, it's not surprising that Quentin has met with the success he has, and he was a mere twentysomething when he wrote 'Reservoir Dogs'. I look forward to seeing many more of his films in the future.

He's getting the full 6ft1 this afternoon because there's only the one box. At 57, he might have lost a slither of height, but nothing unduly significant.

Animus said on 2/Oct/20
6'1¼ would be a bit too much for Tarantino, in my opinion. I recently saw a 2007 clip of him with Craig Ferguson, the 6'1½ comedian/host, and Tarantino looked a bit shorter than him. If he was a legitimate 186cm, I don't think that would have happened. I can buy 6'1⅛ for Quentin at the very most, making him a weak 186cm, but the current listing, in absence of an actual measurement, suits him just fine. Today he might fall a bit shy of 6'1, which is within expectations for a guy pushing 60.
Kebapsever said on 6/Sep/20
I think he’s like Obama very strong 6’1.
OriginalAnon said on 28/Aug/20
I only like one of his films (Reservoir Dogs). He was terrible in that film - should never have cast himself.

Looks about 184cm or 185cm.
Slim 6'1" said on 8/Aug/20
185 maybe even 185.9 not a strong 6'1 but weak is out of the question as well

188-188.5 out of bed

Django is my favorite.

Really enjoyed Once Upon a time in Hollywood in that it was a bit more tame for him. The soundtrack was amazing

@Sandy i remember tarantino does cameo in inglorious basterds.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jun/20
I read on my phone this afternoon that the favourite of Quentin Tarantino's self-created characters is Hans Landa, as played by Christoph Waltz. Quentin speaks about how he steals every scene he's in, and having spent the weekend before last watching 'Inglourious Basterds' numerous times, I've got to agree with Quentin that he really and truly does! There are loads of great actors in the film, including Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Melanie Laurent and Eli Roth, but to be introduced to Christoph Waltz in this fashion had me interested in him immediately.

'Inglourious Basterds' was one of the Tarantino films that doesn't feature Quentin himself. He usually makes at least a cameo.

6ft1 😁🏆🥇
Kitbit said on 18/May/20
I think he lost a bit of height. 6'1" peak and now around 6'0.75". Probably wakes up at 6'1.5" nowadays.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Mar/20
To all those of you who live in the UK:

Tonight at 9 o'clock, Sony Movies are showing Quentin Tarantino's feel-good masterpiece 'True Romance'.

It has the most amazing cast, including Patricia Arquette, Christian Slater, Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman, Samuel L Jackson, Brad Pitt, Michael Rapaport, James Gandolfini, Val Kilmer, Saul Rubinek, Chris Penn, Tom Sizemore....

But no Quentin!

There are height opportunities galore, and the assurance that you'll want to see it again! I showed it to my Dad and he never complained when I stuck it on repeatedly during my stay with him back in 2005. I've read it's the sweariest movie ever made - well, at the time of my reading that fact it was! 😉

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/Mar/20
🎂💝🎊 Happy Birthday Quentin 🎊💝🎂

A belated Happy Birthday to the wonderful, unique genius that is

⭐ Quentin Tarantino! ⭐

Quentin turned 57 yesterday. He's 6ft1 - his height and that of George Clooney were on prominent display for all to see in the horror comedy 'From Dusk Till Dawn'. Boy, is that a good film OR WHAT? 😂👍🦇

pov said on 18/Mar/20
He's taller than legit 6'1 Johnathan Ross. And he's taller than Brad Pitt in his "special shoes". I'd give him 6'1.5 and I'd take his word if he claimed 6'2. I'm baffled the average guess is so low
Dmeyer said on 15/Jan/20
lately many times looks 6ft because of posture
JesusIsKing4444 said on 15/Jan/20
He is a big guy. I wouldn't be surprised if he weighted 220 pounds.

True 6'1".
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Nov/19

I've just seen two Quentin Tarantino fans on Dinner Date! Good taste indeed, but they didn't hook up, which was rather a shame.

Isn't Quentin's new film 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' in our cinemas now? I think it is, and coupled with a new Stephen King film, I think we're being spoilt rotten!

If only I still worked round the corner from the cinema....🚬💭

Quentin gets six one, but if he's said six two before, I reckon he was measured in the morning. I can't see him expanding on his height. He doesn't need to; he proved himself at a very young age. He didn't ask for the special effects department to be drafted in for his measurement in 'From Dusk Till Dawn'! My, that was a good 'un! Even my Dad likes it!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Aug/19
@ Yang - You rate Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth? You have good taste! I am incredibly excited about Quentin's new film 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' and I can't wait to get my mitts on a copy!

This amazing American film director deserves to get as 6ft 1 range. He is definitely taller than Brad Pitt and Leo DiCaprio for sure!!!!!
True lister too!!!!

It's believable.

He realy still looks about 6'1 much taller than Pitt and leo

Taller than Travolta, little shorter than Sam Jackson and Michael Madsen.

186cm is fair.

i believe he went from 1/8 over 6 foot 1 to 1/4 -1/8 under it by now. Not under 6 foot 1 peak
Gracian said on 8/Dec/18
From what I saw 6'1.25" would be a better list! In 2005, Tarantino did not look much shorter than Michael Madsen, even though Madsen had the advantage of shoes and hair over him:

I do not see Tarantino below 186 cm. Rob, can you give him an upgrade to at least 6'1.25"?
Editor Rob
6ft 1 or 1.25 I think are arguable...6ft 0.5 or 1.5 I wouldn't have went with those figures...but at the moment I don't know if I'd give him 1.25
berta said on 3/May/18
he can look a little under 6 foot 1 today i think he have lost 1/4. the strange thing is samuel l jackson doesnt look a mm over 185 with alexander skarsgård and recent photos with tarantino with samuel shows that samuel is taller than tarantino. I think barely 185 today and peak 185,5. But he have very bad posture so there is a fairly decent chanse he could be fraction taller than my estimate. But best listing is still 6 foot 1 peak. Soon with a current listing
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Mar/18
Thanks for nearly choking me to death tonight courtesy of your Gold Watch Story in 'Pulp Fiction'! 👍👍👍

I still love you though, all 6ft1 of you!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/18
One thing he has never looked was 6ft3 and he was constantly being listed at that mark back in the day. Only those who think Travolta is 6ft2 would be silly enough to buy that...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/18
He looked 186-187cm zone w/h Clooney. In Reservoir Dogs he looked taller than Chris Penn and a little shorter than the 188cm Michael Madsen. Likewise in Pulp Fiction looked right between Travolta and Jackson.

C is my choice.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 5/Jan/18
Rampage. i think 186 is the best listing. with that 90's clooney film you could argue 186. i think its called dusk till dawn.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/17
Rob, which of these is likely?

A) 189cm/187cm
B) 188.5cm/186.5cm
C) 188cm/186cm
D) 187.5cm/185.5cm
E) 187cm/185cm
Editor Rob
wuoldn't rule out C yet...I suppose on a good day in the 90's he could look over 6ft 1 at times
Animus said on 24/Dec/17
He claimed 6ft2 on the Howard Stern Show years ago. I think 6ft1 is fine for him.

He’d definitely clear 6’2” out of bed at physical prime.
Jeremy said on 11/Nov/17
He’s only 54 he hasn’t lost much but maybe a tad. I would say 186 today barefoot. And in the 90s was 187-188. Worst case senario 185 but i dont see it he comfortably passes 6 foot 1

I'd 186 him, he made brad pitt look like a 5'9 range guy. And you said below 179 was impossible for brad, so this works quite well imo.

He also slouches and can shrink himself to kurt Russell eye level.

Quentin looks 2 1/2 inches shorter than Robert Rodriguez. 5'11.5 for Quentin
Dr Gonzo said on 12/May/17
@8:20 Click Here you can see he has a hair over the 75 inch mark (presumably in shoes). Unless he's wearing high heels that has to place his peak no less than 6'1.5, maybe as much as 6'2.25 depending on the footwear...Although with age, bad posture, and 50+ pound weight gain I can't say he looks much over the 6ft mark in most pics these days
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/17
If Clooney was 5ft11 in 1996, I could see an argument for 6ft1¼-6ft1½. Also looked it w/h Travolta and Jackson in Pulp Fiction.

I think he's tried to claim 6ft3 in the past.

Yeah he was a tall 6 1 in the 90s his posture and weight have gotten worse and he isnt getting younger id say weak 6 1 now strong before loss of .25-.50.
He is quite funny and gifted but much too aberrant in my opinion shock sells but stains.
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Oct/16
I've been putting off writing about Quentin Tarantino because firstly, I've known his height for some time from various sources and secondly, I don't think anything I say could ever do him justice!
The first film of his that made me really sit up and take notice was 'Reservoir Dogs'. I liked the fact that he starred in it. I also adored the humour which turned an unfortunate tale into a black comedy. I have seen it so many times that I pretty much know it by heart.
All his movies come with dynamic soundtracks of music carefully chosen by Tarantino himself from his own music collection, I have heard.
I can't say a bad word about any of his work. The man fascinates me! He also goes out of his way to check out anyone he finds interesting, be it an actor or a director. Eli Roth is one such person. I listened with interest to their joint commentary for the film 'Hostel 2' and loved the comedic part Tarantino gave Eli Roth in his film 'Inglourious Basterds'. My boyfriend noticed that Wolf Creek's John Jarratt made a brief appearance in 'Django Unchained', a piece of information that bears out his interest in sniffing out the noteworthy new talent!
You can tell from his original masterpieces that this guy has a good heart and a sensational sense of humour. Fantastic and brilliant, I can't wait for his next project to come to fruition.
Animus said on 14/Oct/16
At age 53 he is beginning to look slightly shorter than 6ft1.

In this picture he looks about the same or shorter than Channing Tatum (6ft0.5):

Click Here

In this picture he must have awful posture, because he looks about the same as Christopher Nolan (~5ft11.25):

Click Here

Even with awful posture, though, I am not sure a 6ft1 man would like that next to a man in the 5ft11 range.

It's hard to say what can be attributed to poor posture and what might be a drop to about 6ft0.5 range. In any case it's fair to say that Rob should keep an eye on him in the coming years.

He had close to 3 inches on Brad Pitt. I think he is around a 186cm if measured. He looks too tall to be under 6'1

Nearer 6ft2 in Dusk Till Dawn, about 3in on Clooney

Hes a solid 6'1 looked even taller in Dusk Till Dawn next to George Clooney who I thought was 5'11 but that was a lie

yup he 6'1 look like it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/16
He used to get listed as high as 6ft3 and I believed it...but then again I also believed Travolta was 6ft2. Both were always 2in below those absurd figures.

Rob, how do you think heights get so inflated in the media?
Sam said on 9/Nov/15
I think Tarantino's a solid 6'1" but not really around 6'2"...I think the difference with Travolta can look anywhere in the 1-1.5 inch range and he can seem near an inch under Jackson. Wouldn't really go above 6'1.25" IMO for Tarantino.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jun/15
He really does look 187-188cm range in Pulp Fiction.
Maybe 2cm shorter than Samuel L. Jackson (189-190cm) and at least 3cm taller than Travolta (184cm)

In cannes he has 0.6in shoes he looks 1.5in taller than travolta who has more shoes , and about as tall as uma in big heels 6'3-3.5ish , if the Guy was 6'1.5 i wouldnt be shocked , with the right posture he is steel 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/15
I agree with Mon. He's taller than he looks.
Pushing 6ft2 I don't know but for sure not under 6ft1
Mon said on 10/Jun/15
Probably has less of a footwear boost at these premiers than actors, so a little taller than he looks beside them. His head and torso always seem really, really large, like in the John Wayne class. I think he is a weak 6'2'' with relaxed posture,
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/15
He used to get listed at 6ft3. It made sense to me at the time because Travolta was getting reported at 6ft2 and Willis at 6ft1. All that made me assume Samuel L. Jackson was 6ft4!
noscoper said on 6/Mar/15
I thought for many years this guy was 1.88
but now i definetely see him at 1.85
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Feb/15

He makes Travolta look 5ft11 flat at times.

No less than 6ft1 today

My friend looks like him and is 6'1" also!
Sam said on 10/Jul/13
Tarantino looks a little shorter than the South Park guys, although seems to be at disadvantagous angle, probably an inch shorter than Matt Stone & close to Trey Parker.

I cant see DiCaprio under 6'0 if Quentin is 6'1
[Editor Rob: here is Leo with a Guy who is 6ft 1 and a quarter...]

Sorry, I didn't want to point out Leo as a 6-footer because I certainly don't believe he is. But Tarantino just doesn't look over 6'0 today to me

doesnt look is the key words. lots of people do not look 5'10 yet they are. lots of people dont look 6'2 yet they are. lots of people look 6'1 yet they are not. so as he he is fat now he will look a bit shorter most likely. he is close to 6'1. he probably lost a 1/4 inch.
Lorne said on 4/Jul/13
His posture is horrible now, which is why he seems shorter. Of course there is a chance he's the kind of guy who has already lost a fraction by age 50, though could really look 186cm. I say 185.5-186cm "peak", today could be nearer 185cm flat(basically a wee fraction under 6'1 night) though again I say posture is to blame. And saying Decaprio wears lifts is stupid. They're is no evidence whatsoever. He's a solid 181cm guy, clearly 5'11+. Get over it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/13
That guy would really be 188cm if he were to stand upright.
There's a clear 2in at least between them.
jtm said on 25/Jun/13
dicaprio is 5'10 and likes to wear lifts.
dmeyer181.2-183.8 said on 24/Jun/13

Trent said on 6/Feb/13
Maybe he has dropped a bit. This pic came out the other day of him and he's in pretty bad shape: Click Here

He'll be 50 in about two months, and if he hasn't been exercising and has been carrying more weight I could see a loss of half an inch or so.
Larc 74in said on 4/Feb/13
I doubt he lost anything at all, he's not even 50y, maybe a few mm.
Haven't watched Django however, so I can be wrong.

Alex said on 27/Jan/13
He didn't look 6ft1 in Django. He did, however looked like it in Pulp Fiction. Rob, do you think he may have lost a few cm s over the years?
Editor Rob
I doubt he's really lost much, maybe he could develop a bit poorer posture though and appear shorter at times.
Joey said on 21/Dec/12
he is a weak 6'1 flat during the day I'd say...and he made pitt look 176cm area because pitt IS 175-177cm without his elevator shoes, open your eyes and dont blindly believe whatever actors claim <.<
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/12
Always at least 1in taller than Travolta and
holds his own opposite 188cm dudes like
Michael Madsen and Robert Rodriguez.
186cm at least
Shaun said on 30/Jan/12

Jonathan Ross has looked 186-187 cm in comparison to the vast majority of his guests and roughly what he claims The only time he really didn't look 187 was next to Jay Z who looked 6'2" flat. 5'11" for Travolta?? Have you ever seen him next to Princess Diana? Not a chance.

An inch shorter than Michael Madsen, doubt he is 187cm then even if he can look it at least at times. Flat 6'1" seems about right.
Jack said on 3/Jan/12
same height as Marilyn Manson..185 cm for sure.
Adamz said on 19/Nov/11

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/11
Looked 1in shorter than Samuel L. Jackson so 6"1.25(186cm), if not 6"1.5.
Adamz said on 13/Nov/11
Met him at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. We talked for a brief moment and I got a picture with him, the picture is while seated but I did make sure to take note of his height and footwear after he stood up. He is no less than this, but i would say its accurate. He may be 1/2 inch taller.

johno said on 22/Oct/11
Hmmmmm, jonathon ross edged him in both interviews and jonathon ross claims 6'1.5. He would definently be 6'1 if ross is 6'1.5 however, ross does not seem this tall and with general estimations on jonathon ross's page, ross seems less then 6'1. For me, ross is more closer to a flat 6'0, then 6'1 so i cannot see how quentin can be 6'1. I would put him at the same height as ross. 6'0.5, maybe closer to 6'0.

Having him edge travolta is not neccessarily a confidence vote. Travolta does not seem 6'0, more in the low 5'11 range and could be in the top of the 5'10 terrain.

Having Tarantino more towards 6'0, then 6'1 would fit in with brad pitt 5'9 conspiracy.

Ross 6'0 - 6'0.5
Quentin Tarantino 6'0 - 6'0.5
Jose Cruz Parker said on 23/Sep/11
He IS 6´1 MAYBE , MAYBE a little shorter....
Rampage you dont know what you´re talking about..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Aug/11
1.5in taller than Travolta and 0.75in shorter than Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction, putting him at 6ft2(188cm). That's probably a bit of a stretch. Aswell, movies aren't always the most reliable method to judge height. But I think he's over 185cm barefoot. In pictures he can look the same height as Robert Rodriguez...
Shaun said on 16/Jul/11
Doesn't look more than a flat 6'1" compared to quite a few though.
Shaun said on 16/Jul/11
To be honest I think 187cm is nearer. He easily looks 6'1.5"next to Pitt and Eli Roth .

I have seen him next to robert rodeiguez who is 6'2, both in average shoes and short pants, i would say Quentin the Genious Tarantino is between 182-183cm

He looks barely shorter than many 6'2 guys. I'd say 6'1 absolute min
Shaun said on 21/Apr/11
LOL @ 6'5" Tarrantino. I could buy 6'1.5". he certainly looked it next to Brad Pitt.

6'1 for Tarantino.

Once again proves Rampage doesnt have a clue what hes talking about.
thebad7 said on 18/Mar/11
There are pics of him standing next to friend & collaborator Robert Rodriguez at a recent awards show. He is about 1" shorter than RobRod. 6'1" is spot on for QT.


P.S.--Awesome writer & director. Fabulous taste in old-school films, especially Spaghetti Westerns.
Larc 6 ft 1.5 in said on 5/Mar/11
He can't be 6'1.5, he looks 2inches shorter than 6'3 listed Tom Hooper.
And the same difference can be spot also between Colin Firth and Hooper, so Firth is at best 6'1 and so is Tarantino.
How can he be 6'1.5? He's also clearly shorter than 6'2 Robert Rodriguez.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/11
6"1.5(187cm) is nearer...about an inch taller than 6"0.5(184cm) John Travolta
dmeyer said on 31/Dec/10
could he be over 6 ft 1 to me he looks 6 ft 1.25 to 6 ft 1.5
pete said on 5/Dec/10
next to Robert Rodriguez who is 6`2 (He wrote this in His own Book!!) You can see that Tarantino is a little bit smaller. I think 6 ft 1 is correct

Uma thurman ist taller than him with high heels. so he cant be 6'2. 6'1 seems to be correct!

I think Michael Madsen and Tarantino looked the same height in Resevoir Dogs. Both 6ft2.
adam said on 19/Dec/08
He seems to hit 76 inches there, which is 6-4!!! He`s not that tall but 6-2 sure is possible. The guy has a weak posture.

He is around my height (6'1),looks only 1 inch shorter than Robert Rodriguez.

That also puts Travolta at 6ft2 seeming he only half an inch shorter than Tarantino.

Anonymous: If Tarantino looked 1 inch taller than Madsen, who is 6'2, that would give Tarantino 6'3.
Chris said on 16/Sep/07
That's funny. I thought he looked slightly shorter than Ross, but there wasn't much in it.
Anonymous said on 16/Sep/07
He looked a little bit taller than 6ft 1 jonathan ross the other day so maybe he can be a full 6 foot 3.
Anonymous said on 30/Aug/07
I say hes a little over 6'1 because hes just a inch tall than michel madsen in reservoir dogs
REV. said on 3/Jul/07
I saw him at the Grid House premiere here in Austin where it was filmed. He was wearing cowboy boots that gave in about an inch and was right about 6'1 to 6'1 1/2. The Clooney difference in From dusk till dawn is about 2 full inches so he's probably 6'0 flat bare footed.
Anonymous Rex said on 7/Jun/07
Del Mar
I don't remember Uma Thurman towering over Tarantino. And what do you mean by "towering"
Del Mar said on 19/Apr/07
He's a max of 6-1, most likely 6 flat. Look at several pictures of him with other actors, and Uma Thurman towers over him, which she wouldn't done if he was close to 6-3.
G-unit said on 16/Apr/07
looks 6'1, not taller
Antron said on 13/Feb/07
He definitely didn't look taller than Sam Jackson in Pulp Fiction, around the same at the tallest, but closer to 6'1" would make more sense to me.
J. said on 14/Apr/06
One thing that I noticed just as I was looking at some photos of Tarantino is that he's a pretty big guy, girth-wise! Did he gain weight in the last few years or was he always that sturdy? As far as height, I vaguely remember a Rolling Stone article in where the writer said something to the effect of "Tarantino is actually more than 6 feet yet doesn't appear like he is". I think 6'1.5" is a good estimate.
Uma factor said on 3/Apr/06
At the MTV Movie Awards years back when Uma won for The Bride, she asked QT onto the stage. With her heels buckled UP, he struggled towards her height.
Mario said on 16/Feb/06
I think that he is easily 188/ 189 cm, the problem is his posture.
TNTinCA said on 15/Feb/06
He did look quite a bit taller than Clooney in From Dusk til Dawn. So I can easily see him in the 6'2" range.
Anonymous said on 18/Jan/06
Watch Pulp Fiction again and see that he's no taller than John Travolta who's 6'0" and Samuel L. Jackson who's 6'2".
MOF said on 31/Dec/05
I just met hime and spoke with him for 10 minutes here in a special triple Kung-Fu feature in Iceland. He was maybe 6'1, my 6'1.5 friend (187cm exactly) stood right next to him and he was noticably taller than Quentin, he also noticed it. I'm 5'11, Eli Roth was there and he was my size, couldn't see exactly how tall but definately in the 5'11 range. But Quentin is definately smaller than 187cm, probably 184cm or 185. I couldn't take any photos since no one was allowed to take pictures...
Leo Is Tall! said on 22/Dec/05
He's not 6'2" Check out yesterday's Boston Globe living arts section page 3.
There's a photo of Quentin, Clin, and another guy and Clint has 1 or 2cm on Quentin.
Mario Nariano said on 31/Oct/05
I would give him 6 ft 2. You have upgraded Uma and QT is exactly 2 inches taller than her.
The Count said on 5/Aug/05
I used to work at the Arclight theater in Hollywood, and I've stood right next to the guy, with the express purpose of trying to figure out how tall he is. I'm exactly 5'11" and I'd say he's 2-3 inches taller than me, and that 6'2" sounds about right to me.

PS he got fat
Mr. X said on 30/May/05
That 6'3" is hard to believe because wasn't Quentin shorter than Michael Madsen in the movie Resevoir Dogs?
