Amaze says on 23/Jul/15
Wow in kingsman he looked 6'2
Still 6'1 is solid tall good height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 28/Apr/15
In Fever Pitch and The English Patient around 6ft1-6ft2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Apr/15
"Colin Firth height: 6ft 1žin (186cm)"

Rob, is it possible that he was always around that mark?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 30/Mar/15
Hypado, he was never that big
Hypado says on 29/Mar/15
Colin Firth

Peak: 6ft 1.75in , 187 cm
Now: 6ft 1in , 185 cm
James B says on 16/Mar/15
rob 2cm height loss is quite impressive for a 54 year old would you agree?
[Editor Rob: think of it more as 1/2 inch.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Mar/15
@cole: Brosnan may have lost a centimetre or so but I think he was a solid 187cm guy (a weak 6ft2) in his prime. Maybe he's around 6ft1 flat today but I think he's always had better posture than Firth who looks shorter than his Pride & Prejudice days...
cole says on 10/Mar/15
@Editor Rob: Isn't it likely Firth just held a better posture before than now in general? I think you should take away the peak, or at least make it 6'1.25. He doesn't look to have lost much worth mentioning. Brosnan has for sure lost a bit though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 10/Mar/15
Rob, could he be a fraction under 6ft1 now even?

He was on Fallon a few weeks ago and barely edged him out...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Feb/15
Rob who do you think was taller peak Firth or Day Lewis?
[Editor Rob: could be a toss up really, always a chance Day Lewis might have slight edge but I don't know]
Joe says on 22/Feb/15
I would say 6'1" would be about right. Actors exaggerate their heights by an inch or two.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m says on 7/Feb/15
I just saw Kingsman last night and he looks around this height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Feb/15
Looks barely 6ft1 with Cumberbatch. I haven't seen The Kingsman yet but I reckon Mark Strong and Samuel L. Jackson edge him out.
Hypado says on 1/Feb/15
Yes, rob, 185 cm now.

Look Colin with 183 cm Cumberbatch:

6'1 spot on. Great job on rob!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 18/Nov/14
That low, Rob?

I'm pretty certain he was taller than Willis and similar to Alan Rickman
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Nov/14
Rob, how tall would you say this guy is?

His name is Hart Bochner. He co-starred with Firth many years ago in a movie called Apartment Zero and he's best known for his role in Die Hard as Ellis. Nowadays he's a director of some sorts.
[Editor Rob: 5ft 11-11.5? Yeah I recognise his face from a few films.]
mike says on 11/Nov/14
Or maybe 6ft 1.25 peak and 6ft 0.75 today!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Oct/14
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Oct/14
My thoughts exactly.

Rob, maybe we should give him a peak height now?
[Editor Rob: probably]

Rob, would you say Firth can look 6ft2 next to Rupert Everett?
[Editor Rob: Firth at 6ft 1.5 and 6ft 1 today is probably a good enough shout...6ft 2 though I don't think he was quite a genuine one of those.]
lanky clint 189cm says on 17/Oct/14
legit 6' without shoes mark stong is definitely 6'2" next to him - there is quite clearly 2" there and strongs not even stood up straight whilst colin is trying to make him self look taller - look at the eye level.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Oct/14
He looks 185-186cm w/h Hugh Grant
judd says on 3/Oct/14
here i can see a typical 6'1" guy next to a 5'11" one

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Oct/14
Rob, maybe you should bring him down to 186cm?
Judd says on 28/Sep/14
6'1" in 2014
Mr. R says on 22/Jul/14
I saw Colin tonight at the premiere of his latest film "Magic in the Moonlight". He was definitely taller than I thought. I think he is closer to 6-1 though.
Bluestocking says on 15/Jul/14
Actually, I think he might even be a little taller than that. I met him face-to-face once in New York City -- I'm 5'2" and I barely came up to his shoulder even though I was wearing low heels.
Hypado says on 26/Jun/14
Chuckie Cheese 2 says on 5/Jun/14
This guy can pass as 6 foot 2, also he is fairly lean at 192 pounds, in some of his recent roles he looks like he was even down to 170 or 180 lbs. Makes him appear all the taller.
Lenad is sexy says on 2/May/14
I think Jim Carrey and Colin firth are both 185-186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Mar/14
Just saw The Railway Man and he does not look this at all with Nicole Kidman. Same with TTSS and Gambit. Last few years he does look 185cm. Having said that in Bridget Jones Diary and Shakespeare in Love Firth looked 6ft1-6ft2 range next to guys like Hugh Grant and Joseph Fiennes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Dec/13
186cm peak. Claimed 6ft2 as height in shoes or measured 6ft1.5 in the morning
avi says on 20/Dec/13
@Balrog says on 31/Oct/13
Both Hoult and Krasinski destroyed his 6'2" claim he looked no more than a flat 6'1" next to both of them.

I don't think so he looked 1.5 shorter than Krasinski but hoult did seem 2 taller so 6'1 but a weak one but I guess you're right 6'2 is destroyed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Dec/13
Even Matthew Goode, who might be a weak 6ft2, looked around 1in taller than him in An Ordinary Man.

Rob, are still convinced he's 187cm?
[Editor Rob: at some point I think I would put him 6ft 1 and say he's lost half inch]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Nov/13
185-86cm is a safe estimate. Granted he can look near 6ft2 in some of his older movies.

"Colin Firth height: 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"
Sam says on 1/Nov/13
I do think Ralph Fiennes is pretty much in the 5'10"-5'11". Guy Pearce looked a similar amount shorter than Firth, he might be a strong 5'10". I agree, he can look big but Firth really isn't over 6'1" to my eyes next to taller guys.
Balrog says on 31/Oct/13
Both Hoult and Krasinski destroyed his 6'2" claim he looked no more than a flat 6'1" next to both of them.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/Oct/13
In Bridget Jones Diary he could maybe pass for 6ft2 with Hugh Grant.
Arch Stanton says on 11/Oct/13
He does actually look around 6'2 next to 5'11" Ralph Fiennes in the English Patient. If he's a flat 6'1 then Fiennes is 5'10 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Oct/13
@cole: yeah I agree with that.
cole says on 21/Sep/13
Brosnan seems taller. Colin is more 6'1 flat.
Nenninn says on 19/Sep/13
I think he has lost at least a few mm. He was 187 cm in peak for sure. maybe 186 range now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Jul/13
Rob, maybe you should give Brosnan 187cm aswell?

he doesn't appear to have lost height either and he's 60
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Jul/13
Rob, who would be taller Firth or Brosnan?
[Editor Rob: today firth generally can look 6ft 1 or thereabouts, as I've said I am unsure whether he's lost a cm or not, he may not have. Pierce could appear similar 186-7 range in 80's/90's]
cole says on 26/Jul/13
Shorter than Brosnan, who is 185-186 cm range. 184-185 cm range for Firth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Jul/13
Mark Strong 6"1.75"(187cm)
Pierce Brosnan 6"1.5"(187cm)
Russell Brand 6"1.5"(187cm)
Colin Firth 6"1.25"(186cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 15/Jul/13
Had about 2in on Geoffrey Rush. But he's about 5ft11(180cm) max. This guy has always looked around 6ft1 to me. 186cm is the absolute most I could give this guy. Looked shorter than Russell Brand, Pierce Brosnan and Mark Strong. Looked barely taller than Benedict Cumberbatch (looks a strong 6ft).
Arch Stanton says on 12/Jul/13
He had 2-2.5 inches on Geoffrey Rush in the King's Speech. I'd guess he was 6'1.25?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Jul/13
Rob, no one is suggesting he did lose height. Maybe, it's more of a case that he never was quite 6ft1.5?
[Editor Rob: he might have lost a cm, not impossible, I know people in 50's who have lost half inch just through general disc wear and tear.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Jul/13
Rob, weren't you going to change this to 186cm?
[Editor Rob: I never decided if I thought he'd lost half inch by now or not]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Jun/13
Doesn't drop below 185cm at night.
Balrog says on 8/Jun/13
Always looked around 6'1''. Think 187 cm is too high.
Sam says on 7/Jun/13
There's really only half that height discrepancy between Firth and Strong, as Firth is bending his knees slightly in that photo. There might be a 1 or 2 cm advantage for Strong.

cole says on 6/Jun/13
He's a good 3 cm shorter than 187 cm Mark Strong, so 184 cm for Colin: Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Mar/13
I agree James
James says on 19/Feb/13
185 or 186cm. 187cm is a stretch.
Balrog says on 10/Jan/13
Firth seems to be 6'1'' flat IMO
SAK says on 8/Jan/13
@Hew, thats definately due to dodgy camera angle. Krasinski is leaning towards camera, and Firth is doing the opposite. If it were the other way round, they would probably appear very similar.
Lo sgozzatore says on 7/Jan/13
Krasinski did look slightly shorter than Steve Howey, who's listed here at 6'3 and actually looks that! In that pic he's closer to the camera and he's standing better than Firth. Firth is just another 6'1 flat guy who gets listed at 6'1.5, same as Jim Carrey, Will Smith,... Gift from Rob Paul. So i believe they're a 6'1 and 6'2.5 guys
Hew says on 7/Jan/13
Looks 5'11 with 6'3 Krasinski. Could be an iffy camera-angle though.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12
Ok, I can settle on 186cm for Firth. But I still think Brosnan should be upgraded to 187cm since he pulled off looking 6ft3 in pics I posted on his page.
Silent d says on 7/Oct/12
If pierce is taller than him then 186cm is a safe bet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Sep/12
USYD, as much as I respect your contributions, I don't believe Firth is officially 6ft1.5(187cm). Out of bed, most likely. But by affernoon/evening he's 185-186cm max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Sep/12
"Colin Firth height: 6 ft 1 in (185cm)"

"Pierce Brosnan height: 6 ft 1.5 in (187cm)"

Could those two figures maybe be more accurate, Rob?
Shaun says on 5/Sep/12
He can't be any taller than Brosnan surely Rob? Firth looks 6'1" flat a lot of the time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Sep/12
Thank you Shaun. I'm glad someone agrees with me
Shaun says on 30/Aug/12
Agree with Rampage, and at the very minimum you can list Brosnan and Firth as the same height, there's no way he edges Brosnan out. If anything I'd lower Firth to 185-86cm and upgrade Brosnan a shade to 187cm.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 28/Jul/12
He's a solid 185cm but nothing more.
The height he claims is most likely a
morning height.
Silent d says on 21/Jan/12
About the same height as craig ferguson. On ellen, he looked 186cm easy. His wax figure was taller than him. The wax figure was 2-3 cm taller than him. 187cm is too high. 186cm but he looks taller. Good posture.
