Tyler Perry was just perfect for the role of Madea, the rambunctious-but-loveable grandmother. He’s 6’6” height and a solid 255 pounds weight made him the right person to wear the shoes of Madea, who’s slightly overweight because she loves eating a variety of food but never does workout. But in reality, Tyler Perry is just the opposite of that character.
