  1. indeed jackie chan is that tall. or if i recall he was 5’6″ previously coz jet li is only 5’3″ LOL and he is one of the greatest actors of all time. even have a fitting body during his younger age. i dont mind he had that kind of height coz we are the SAME!

  2. Yeah Jackie is actually quite tall for an Asian star, close to 5’9″. He had 2 inches on Sammo Hung who is listed at 5’7″

  3. I used to think he was about 5 foot 6 but after watching a lot of his movies, I think he is about 172cm now. In his prime, he was close to 5 foot 10.5 I think. His body has taken a battering and he has lost some height. He is a few cms taller than jet li.
