Kevin Hart's height has been the center of many jokes since he became a celebrity, but it hardly phases him. Indeed the talented man wears it all well and has not let it stop him from achieving his goals, but how tall is he?

Kevin Hart is a comedian/actor who has sold out many stages and featured in a lot of blockbusters, including the "Jumanji" franchise, "Undeclared," "Think Like A Man," and "Hobbs & Shaw." He is a family man with four gorgeous kids from two different women and marriages.

Besides his entertainment talent, Hart is also known for being very short. While this may make some people insecure, Hart can't seem to be bothered about what people think about his height and has been known to make many public and social media comments.

In 2018, he shared a tweet that saw him praising himself for growing a bit taller. In 2019, there were also several similar tweets, including one that saw him confess that he had added a quarter of an inch.

He joked about how haters would claim he was using photoshop to make it seem like he was taller in his pictures. His fans have always responded to his bants, and they genuinely enjoy bantering about his height.

HOW TALL IS KEVIN HART?

Kevin Hart has always made jokes about his height, but he rarely ever talks about his exact height in public. One of the few times he had mentioned it was when he took a lie detector test for Vanity Fair magazine in the past.

While being questioned, he was asked if he was 5'2, but he denied it, saying he was 5'4 instead, and the lie detector picked up on the lie. When he realized he had been caught, he amended by saying it was 5'3 instead.

That was a lie, and so were his following two answers. In the end, he had to admit that he was indeed 5'2. When the talented actor started comedy, he struggled to pull crowds and make them laugh.

His height did not make things easy for him but in his audiobook "The Decision, Overcoming Today's BS for Tomorrow's Success," he revealed that he had to stop thinking for everyone and instead focus on his craft.

For him, the struggle presented an opportunity to come as a better version of himself. So he worked extra hard to ensure the opportunities he needed would come his way.

HOW KEVIN HART FEELS ABOUT HIS HEIGHT

In a past interview with Oprah Winfrey, Hart opened up about his height and how he had always been confident about his physical attributes. He embraced his looks a long time ago, and when Oprah asked him if people made fun of his height when he was younger, he admitted that he adopted a self-deprecating approach to preventing it.

He chose to make fun of himself before others got a chance to, and as he grew older, he kept it up. As far as he is concerned, people can only put him down if he allows it, and he addresses the topic before they get the chance to end the subject before it even begins.

In another interview where he appeared alongside Dwayne Johnson, Hart revealed some advantages to being short, including having access to good clothes, shoes that fit, and the adequate legroom he enjoys on flights.

KEVIN HART IS SHORTER THAN HIS WIFE

Hart is married to model Eniko Parrish with whom he shares three kids. The pair met in 2009 while he was still married to his first wife, Torrei, but nothing significant happened between them until his divorce from her was finalized.

Eniko is taller than the comedian by several inches, but that's not shocking as she is a model. She is 1.71 meters tall while he comes in at 1.63, but the funnyman does not mind the jokes that come with it and has not allowed it to ruin what they have together.
