Tonight is the 2016 MTV Movie Awards with both Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosting the event. One thing you may notice during the show is the insane height difference between the two co-hosts. Johnson hails from the WWE and has grown into a movie star while Hart is a walking mouth (which is why we love him) who is seen everywhere in comedy. They are fan-favorites and an entertaining duo to say the least.
So, let’s talk about each of their heights and weights since that’s what we’re all wondering. Johnson stands at 6’5″ tall and his weight is estimated at 260 lbs. When talking to Esquire about his weight, Johnson said:
Two-forty, 250, 260, depending on the role. I think for San Andreas I was 240. But I think what’s interesting is when you finally make that decision and clarity becomes king in your life, the weight doesn’t become an issue. Like, who gives a fuck how much you weigh?! Just go out there and put on a great performance.
He also talked about adjustments he had to make with his body when he first tried to transition into stardom. Johnson explained:
The big stars didn’t look like me—and I didn’t look like them. There wasn’t a blueprint or a model. Well, here’s a former football player who once wrestled and he’s this height and this weight. He’s black and Samoan and he has tattoos… And then it was slim down, stop working out as much, get distance from wrestling and the moniker of the Rock. There were a lot of changes—the people around me at that time felt like it was the best thing to do, but by the way, I bought into it. I embraced it.
Kevin Hart, on the other hand, is only 5’4″ tall and according to Heightline, he is about 141 lbs. Earlier in life, Hart was often mocked for being so short. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Hart once said:
When you talk about your flaws, people gravitate towards you. I’m just not that manly man.
