How Tall Was Paul Walker?
Paul Walker (1973-2013) was a huge movie star, a charity worker, and a dedicated father who was taken away from this world way too soon.
Regarding his height, he is regularly listed at both 6'2" and 6'3" online, and unlike other celebs, these listings are not too far-fetched, as with his athletic, slender frame and proper posture he could easily appear around these heights.
However, after taking a closer look and investigating his height claims, and also comparing him to his co-stars, I believe his height falls somewhere outside of these numbers.
So, let's take a closer look at the evidence to find out Paul Walker's real height.
So What Was His Real Height?
From looking at numerous pictures, movies and also comparing Paul Walker's height to his co-stars, I believe that he woke up slightly over 6'2", falling to 6'1.75" during the day and going to bed at 6'1.5" at night. Therefore on this page, I will list him at 6'1.75" (187.3 cm) tall.
Paul has claimed heights of 6'1" here, 6'2" here, and on other occasions as high as 6'3". I would say we can safely rule out 6'3", as this could be near his height in shoes, but not barefooted. The other two claims however are harder to judge and need investigating further.
What Others Say
In the feature-length documentary film 'I Am Paul Walker' (2018), at around 26.05, Tyrese Gibson referrers to Paul as fitting the ideal white male profile: "blond, blue eyes, 6'3" surfer dude, muscles at all times".
Take a look at the documentary here!
This description of Paul's height is not too far-fetched. Yet Tyrese regularly claims 6'1" as his own height, which is a good 2 inches over how tall he really measures, so it would come as no surprise that he would naturally see Paul taller than he really was.
Some autopsy reports state fairly accurate heights, however, Paul Walker's autopsy report stated his height as only 5'11". Although, due to the nature of the fatal crash, subsequent fire, and injuries suffered, this is not representative of his real height while he was alive and standing with a straight posture.
Next to His Fast & Furious Co-stars
When comparing Paul's height next to other celebs, it seems fitting to look at his heights next to some of his Fast & Furious co-stars, as there are many pictures and clips to go through to gain a fuller understanding of his real height.
Fast & Furious Listing
In the Fast & Furious series, Paul played the character 'Brian O'Connor', and held a driver's license with a height of 6'2".
Also, in the film '2 Fast 2 Furious' (2003), Paul's character's physical stats were shown on a computer, with a height of 6'1" - take a look at 1.56 min of this clip.
Also, Tyrese Gibson's character 'Roman Pearce' was shown at 7 seconds into the clip as 6'2" when he is closer to 5'11" in reality. So, we definitely can't use this as accurate height data!
Anyway, let's compare Paul's height to the real height of his co-stars.
Tyrese Gibson 5'10.75" (179.7 cm)
Next to Tyrese Gibson both in film clips and movie premiers, Paul appears around 2.5-3 inches taller, placing him between 6'1.25"-6'1.5" in height.
Ludacris 5'8" (172.7 cm)
Next to Ludacris, Paul Walker looks to be considerably taller. When side by side there is a clear 6 inch gap between them. This puts Walker's height at 6'2".
Vin Diesel 5'11.25" (181 cm)
In the pictures of them together, there is a clear height difference between them.
For instance, when Vin is wearing thick 2 inch boots and Paul is wearing regular shoes, there seems about a 1 inch difference. However, when Vin is wearing regular sneakers that number jumps to around a 2.25 inch difference in height. This puts Walker at around 6'1.5" tall.
So, when next to his co-stars, Paul Walker's height appears to be between 6'1".25" and 6'2" tall.
After taking into consideration Paul Walker's height claims, what others have said about his height, and comparing him to other celebrities, I believe Paul Walker woke up slightly over 6'2", falling to 6'1.75" throughout the majority of the day, going to bed at 6'1.5" at night.
Therefore on this page I am going to list his height as 6'1.75" (187.3 cm) tall.
