Vince Vaughn’s Height
There has never been a more relevant topic, honestly, volumes could be written on the topic of Vince Vaughn’s height. The actor stands incredibly tall at 6 feet 5 inches, the list of people that are taller than Vince is probably not going to make it onto the list of ‘longest lists in the world’.
Chances are, the actor towers over anyone standing next to him and you bet that he has always used his height to his advantage. Nevertheless it can pose as a disadvantage once in a while, though Vince must be a delight to work with otherwise, this is what his Four Christmases co star, Reese Witherspoon had to say about their experience.
‘He’s 6’5″ and I’m 5’2″. We had a really funny scene, I don’t know if it’s in the film any more, where he rolls over onto me. We were in bed and then at the very end he rolls over and goes to sleep, but he rolls over and lays on top of me.’
She added, ‘It was like a tree trunk had just landed on me. I kept going, ‘Tim-berrrrr!’ It was really funny.I stood on a lot of boxes and they had to build ramps that were about the same size as where I should be. It was a challenge, especially the kissing scenes. It was hard to get up there to kiss him but we worked it out.’
Here’s a short list of celebrities that would have no problem kissing Vince Vaughn if need be. Liam Hemsworth, Usain Bolt, Joe Manganiello and Hulk Hogan all share Vince Vaughn’s height. We said ‘if need be’ so… yeah.
Vince Vaughn’s Weight
Vince was one of those celebrities whose weight increased after fame, he had been in pretty good shape in the 1990’s (he was at about 99 kg in the early 2000’s, which is a healthy weight for someone as tall as he is at 6’5”) but then started to let it go a bit with age. By the time he was 40 Vince was in the worst shape of his life.
He was in the neighborhood of 136 kg, apparently when he gave up cigarettes he endorsed another bad habit… constant snacking. He also added these to the list of reasons behind his major weight gain, ‘ … my wife had a baby and I had an injury, so I put some weight on.’
The good news is, Vince shed some of that weight, 11 kg to be precise and is now adopting a healthier outlook on life.
