He stands upright at an average height of 5 feet 5.5 inches (approximately 1.66m) and his fine features are further accentuated by his green eyes and brown hair. The actor also wears shoe size 12 (US) and has probably been able to maintain his weight of 75 kg (165 lbs.) as a result of his essentially vegan diet. He does not eat eggs, meat or dairy products.
However, there have been times when Jason’s job as an actor made him undergo body transformations in order to fit into certain characters. One of these times was when he had to gain weight for his role as King Louis XVI in the film Marie Antoinette.
