When an action movie demands a gritty, tough English bloke helm it, you can bet your bottom dollar that Jason Statham will be right at the top of the casting agent’s target list. Getting his film career started with Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Jason Statham has been a staple in the Fast & Furious series, the Expendables, and dozens of others. No wonder you want to find out more about one of the most bankable movie stars in the world!
So, what are Jason Statham’s key stats? How old is he? How much does he weigh? And how much does this British actor tower over his co-stars? All will be revealed on this page! We’ll even throw in a bit of bonus information to keep your curiosity about Mr. Statham well and truly satiated.
How Tall Is Jason Statham?
Jason Statham is a rather average 5 foot 10 inches (1.78 meters). Not a bad height, but it certainly pales in comparison to some of his Fast & Furious co-stars, with Dwayne Johnson coming in at 6 foot, 5 inches. Although, we are sure that Jason is not comparing himself to The Rock all that often!
How Old is Jason Statham?
Jason Statham was born on July 26th, 1967 in the United Kingdom. In Shirebrook, to be exact. For England lovers, this is a small town located in Derbyshire. If you don’t know England all that well, it is a bit up north somewhere.
This means that, at the time of writing, Jason Statham is 55 years old. Although let’s be honest, the man doesn’t even look close to his age! We are sure that he has plenty of life left in him on the action star scene yet!
How Much Does Jason Statham Weigh?
This information is a bit tough to track down. As you can probably imagine since Jason Statham is a top action star, a lot of his time is spent bulking himself up. So, his weight does fluctuate a little bit.
Jason Statham is said to weigh around 160lbs (77KG). Although, there are other reports that he may be closer to 170 lbs/180 lbs, on occasion. Although, most people cap him out at 160 lbs as his ‘normal’ weight. As we said, it is tough to state exactly how much an actor weighs because, firstly, they rarely talk about it. Secondly, they will be adding and dropping weight all the time for their roles.
So, once again, his weight pales in comparison to his Fast & Furious co-star Dwayne Johnson who comes in at 118 kg. Although, it is fair to say that Johnson has spent most of his life just trying to get as bulky as possible.
As you can probably imagine, Jason Statham’s weight is going to be mostly in bones and muscles. We reckon that his body fat percentage is going to be on the lower side of things. It is probably not surprising to know that when he is not filming an action movie, he is working out in the gym to buff himself up a bit.
How Much Is Jason Statham Worth?
Jason Statham is said to be one of the most bankable movie stars in the world. Not a surprise, really. The man has been at the helm of one of the most popular movie franchises in the world for an incredibly long time (The Fast & The Furious).
It is said that Jason Statham is worth around $90 million, so he certainly hasn’t done too badly with his movie career! Not bad considering he never even planned to get into the acting game to begin with, and it was only by chance that he managed to stumble on his first acting gig. A profession that has managed to set him (and his family) up for life.
Other Cool Facts About Jason Statham
Over the years, Jason Statham has been both praised and ridiculed for his action movie chops. Now, there is no denying that this man is an action star. He knows how to rock it and do death-defying action scenes with a touch of pizzazz. He is just a bit one-dimensional when it comes to the more serious acting scenes. Not to worry, though. Jason is a multi-talented man.
In his early life, Jason Statham was a keen diver. In fact, no. Scratch that. He was more than keen. He ended up competing at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in three diving disciplines. So, he was a top athlete for a while. Around the same time, he dabbled in both soccer and martial arts, so he was certainly a fit man a long time before he entered show business.
It was by chance that he managed to become an action star. While working out at the gym, he was spotted by a modeling agent who suggested that he try his hand at modeling. Of course, it was paying money, so he agreed. This led to a bit of quick TV and music video work, and then Guy Ritchie discovered him at the tail end of the 1990s. He was cast in Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, and his career has gone from strength to strength since then.
We suppose all those early years of him being very athletic paid off, though. Jason does many of his own stunts when filming, although one went a bit haphazard at one point. He ended up driving a truck off a cliff due to a brake failure (don’t worry, he was fine!).
He isn’t all brawn either. There are some brains there too. When he is not kicking about at the gym, he is said to be an avid chess player, often competing against Guy Ritchie. So, Jason Statham is certainly a guy that has it all (and then a little bit extra!)
Jason Statham is an action star, and he has the stats to back it up. Coming in at 5 foot 8”, this brawny man is all-muscle, coming in at a hefty 160 lbs-180 lbs (depending on the year). Not too bad considering he is well into his 50s right now. Still, plenty more action movies to go. He’ll probably stay fit for a long time to come!
