Idris Elba Height has been recorded at 6’2 which places him as one of the tallest actors in show business.

His stature and build has been a key component throughout his acting career since its more convincing portraying a detective, drug kingpin or gangster as a tall person.

Our editorial will provide imagery of Idris Elba stood up against other tall men within show business.

The harder they fall premiere saw Idris together with Jay-z who was an executive producer of the film. When stood together at the event were able to see both men of the same height.

How Tall is Idris Elba

Jay z is one of the tallest rappers to date standing at 6’2 and this is evident to see.

He raps “They can’t believe this much skill is in the human body, He’s 6’2″, how the fuck he fit in a new Bugatti?,” Track – Heaven

Bragging about his height as rappers do, which is how we reverse engineered Idris’s height, thanks Jay!

Taking a closer look at the image we can see all parties have their feet placed on the ground which provides an accurate perspective on their height.


Another movie premiere featured the actor with UK rapper Stormzy. For reference Stormzy is 6’5 and has bragged about his height in songs. We can see him slightly tower over Idris during the photograph.

Lastly we can see Idris with football Legend Becks and Chef Gordon Ramsey who he both towers over. David Beckham and Gordon Ramsey are both taller than the average male, however when stood next to Idris we can see the sizable difference.



Does Height Matter in Pop Culture?

The only thing that matters when it comes to music or acting is quality, fans don’t care what the artists looks like, or we should say looks are secondary.

The great thing about all music genres is that we have representation from both tall and short artists who have made a global impact which is proof that height doesn’t play a part in one’s success. So no height does not matter in the slightest.
