    • Hi Warren

      We mention ‘Slim’ to someone who is normal weight, ‘Average’ to those ones who are a little overweight, and ‘Large’ are those who are obese/highly overweight.

  1. I remember watching him in a movie and he was 6’3″ (190.5 cm) and 84 kg (185 pounds) in weight. According to a 1997 report he was 75 inches and 84 kg.

    Here is the statement: “The stats say 190.5 cm.” He averaged under 6’4″ and above 6’2″. Clearly 6’3″ and 84 kg (185 pounds) His weight should clearly be updated.

  2. He was the same height as Gary Cooper.
    James Stewart: 6’3″
