English Actor best known for roles in movies like Bridget Jones, The King's Speech, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Love Actually, A Single Man, Mamma Mia, Dorian Gray and tv mini-series Pride & Prejudice. He once said "Funnily enough, I don't usually feel like the short one - I'm 6ft 2 in and it's not often I'm looking up to someone and feeling like the little guy. But I swear Rupert's [everett] grown in 18 years". She magazine says on meeting him, "Colin Firth is well over 6ft and makes you feel like Tinkerbell.. The Sunday Telegraph quote him: "I'm fortunate enough to be the height I am [six-foot-one-and-a-half, he says]."

Comment on the Height of Colin Firth

Rob, Mamma Mia should be on that list
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/16
That guy is easily 1in taller than Colin. No less than 6ft2

Rob, how tall do you think is the guy that appears with Colin in this video?

Editor Rob: could look a decent 6ft 2 there if we say firth is roughly 6ft 1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/16
Rob, which range (morning to evening) do you think he measured in at peak?

A) 189cm/187cm
B) 188.5cm/186.5cm
C) 188cm/186cm
D) 187.5cm/185.5cm
E) 187cm/185cm
Editor Rob: Maybe B range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/16
Looking at stuff from the late 80's & early 90's, Firth could actually pass for a 6ft2 guy at times. Similar to Brosnan in the sense that he could stack up well beside 6ft3-4 guys. No reason to doubt 187cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/16
He looks skinnier these days. He used to be quite beefy looking
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/16
Rob, could he still be 187-188cm out of bed now though?
Editor Rob: the older you get the more chance your morning height will reduce a few mm more than evening, but maybe that is more once you get 60-70. He may well still be in that 87-8 range today when rising.
Dmeyer said on 9/Feb/16
So 1cm at early 50s is not uncommon , but the Guy looks healthy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Feb/16
He's consistently edged out by Mark Strong (who I am starting to believe is actually 6ft2)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/16
Rob, is it possible that he may have been 6ft1 all along or do you think he was a bit over it at one point?
Editor Rob: 1.25 is always arguable and a 1/4 loss
Word1234 said on 3/Dec/15
Rob isn't 54 still young enough that you wouldn't loose a full half inch in height??
Trying to understand how he could drop that much! Is that typical for most men in there 50s??!
Editor Rob: it's an age a cm could have occurred in a proportion.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/15
"Peak height was 6ft 1⅜in (186.3cm)"
"Colin Firth's Height is 6ft 1⅒in (185.6cm)"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/15
That guy looks 187-188cm...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Oct/15
Rob, could 186cm be closer for his peak?
[Editor Rob: you could make an argument for that yes.]
spainmen191cm said on 29/Aug/15
Rob, how tall do you think is the guy that appears in the photo with Colin?

[Editor Rob: he looks a 6ft 2 type guy with Colin.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
Rob, do you think he could be dipping into weaker 6ft1 territory at this point?

He wasn't much taller than Jimmy Fallon.
[Editor Rob: he might come across a weak 6ft 1 at times, give it 5 years and he may well regularly look that.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/15
Barely taller than Fallon in that clip. I noticed the same thing with Brosnan.
The Terminator said on 25/Jul/15

Looks 184cm or 154cm now.
Amaze said on 23/Jul/15
Wow in kingsman he looked 6'2
Still 6'1 is solid tall good height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/15
In Fever Pitch and The English Patient around 6ft1-6ft2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/15
"Colin Firth height: 6ft 1žin (186cm)"

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

Peak: 6ft 1.75in , 187 cm
Now: 6ft 1in , 185 cm
James B said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 7/Feb/15
I just saw Kingsman last night and he looks around this height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said on 1/Feb/15
Yes, rob, 185 cm now.

Look Colin with 183 cm Cumberbatch:

Lonestar said on 1/Jan/15
6'1 spot on. Great job on rob!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Nov/14
That low, Rob?

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

Click Here

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 said on 11/Nov/14
Or maybe 6ft 1.25 peak and 6ft 0.75 today!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/14
Super!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said 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 said on 13/Oct/14
He looks 185-186cm w/h Hugh Grant
judd said on 3/Oct/14
here i can see a typical 6'1" guy next to a 5'11" one

Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/14
Rob, maybe you should bring him down to 186cm?
Judd said on 28/Sep/14
6'1" in 2014
Mr. R said 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 said 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 said on 26/Jun/14
184/185cm
Chuckie Cheese 2 said 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 said on 2/May/14
I think Jim Carrey and Colin firth are both 185-186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said on 23/Dec/13
186cm peak. Claimed 6ft2 as height in shoes or measured 6ft1.5 in the morning
avi said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 12/Oct/13
In Bridget Jones Diary he could maybe pass for 6ft2 with Hugh Grant.
Arch Stanton said 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 said on 1/Oct/13
@cole: yeah I agree with that.
cole said on 21/Sep/13
Brosnan seems taller. Colin is more 6'1 flat.
Nenninn said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 26/Jul/13
Shorter than Brosnan, who is 185-186 cm range. 184-185 cm range for Firth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 13/Jun/13
Doesn't drop below 185cm at night.
Balrog said on 8/Jun/13
Always looked around 6'1''. Think 187 cm is too high.
Sam said 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.
Click Here
cole said 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 said on 1/Mar/13
I agree James
James said on 19/Feb/13
185 or 186cm. 187cm is a stretch.
Balrog said on 10/Jan/13
Firth seems to be 6'1'' flat IMO
SAK said 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 said 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 said on 7/Jan/13
Looks 5'11 with 6'3 Krasinski. Could be an iffy camera-angle though.
Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said on 7/Oct/12
If pierce is taller than him then 186cm is a safe bet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 2/Sep/12
Thank you Shaun. I'm glad someone agrees with me
Shaun said 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.
Shaun said on 30/Aug/12

He's a solid 185cm but nothing more.
The height he claims is most likely a
morning height.
Silent d said 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.
steven said on 19/Jan/12
he is probably 6'0.5 look 1.5" shorter than 6'2 Nicholas Hoult who get upgraded by rob listed here 6'2.5

He probably was wearing lifts...
Aswell Everett is 192cm(6ft3.5) tops
Firth was also slightly shorter than

and only 1.5-2in taller than 180-181cm Hugh
Grant in Bridget Jones

Hes 6ft1 flat or 185cm...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/11
Good head of hair + decent shoes and he can pull off 6"2...

He's 6ft1 flat most likely and 186cm-187cm range out of bed

he look 6'0 with 6'2.5 Nicholas Hoult. maybe hes 6'0.5 and slim frame help him look taller.
bane said on 25/Oct/11
wow never thought about this guy like a big 6ft1i thought that he was like 5ft11
LAN Jiao said on 17/Oct/11
he look more like weak 6'1. brosnan is 6'0 even
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Aug/11
He's either further away from the camera or is bending his knees.

Pierce Brosnan 187cm

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/11
In Bridget Jones Diary I thought he could look near 6ft2 when standing with Hugh Grant. But he was slimmer and had a good head of hair which gave off this impression.

I think he's always been 6ft1(185cm) and wears lifts to look 6ft2(188cm).
James said on 14/Aug/11
i think theres a very high chance that firth is 185cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Aug/11
James, since Broadbent peaked at 6ft2 then yes that means he would at one point have been taller than Brosnan. But nowadays they're both 187cm while Firth has always been 6ft1 flat.
James said on 12/Aug/11
Sam picture Firth with a shaven head next too Broabent in that pic. the camera angle might distort things as well.

Out of Brosnan and Firth, jim broadbent looks the taller out of the 2 in my opinion.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/11
Brosnan 187cm
Broadbent 187cm
Firth 185cm
Sam said on 10/Aug/11
Actually in When Did You Last See Your Father? Firth looked taller than Broadbent throughout:

Very similar in height to Brosnan in Mamma Mia! with Brosnan maybe slightly edging Firth out by a hair
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/11
James I don't think Firth has lost height. He's probably been measured in the morning at 187cm and therefore rounds up 0.5in. If you put him next to someone like Pierce Brosnan or Jim Broadbent who are both near 6ft2 he'd be shorter.

In Love, Actually he was identical in height to 185cm Alan Rickman who looks to have lost height.

Remember Rampage Hugh Grant has got high hair. Hugh I think is a strong 5'11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jul/11
Made your mind up yet, Rob?

Saw Bridget Jones Diary last night and there were times when Firth looked barely talller than legit 5ft11 Hugh Grant. 185cm is probably his max?
[Editor Rob: the 6ft 1.5 he claimed could still be a cm high, I just don't know if he has lost height. Today, he indeed looks more often just 6ft 1 than 1.5.]

Colin Firth just never has that 'near 6ft2' look that guys like Pierce Brosnan, Mark Strong and Gerard Butler tend to have. It could be something to do with his build.

Pierce Brosnan maybe can look a bit more than 6'1. Gerald Butler looking near 6'2? I don't think so maybe 6'1 but never looks higher than that really.

Both Colin Firth and Jim Carrey are probably legit 6'1ers not 6'2 though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jun/11
Next to Grant he looks 184cm...I think 6ft1 is reasonable but 6ft1.5 is overdoing it.
James said on 9/Jun/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Jun/11
Wouldn't go as low as 6ft. I think 6ft1.5 when he wakes and 6ft0.75 in the evening

Well i don't think he looks like a guy who is pushing 6'2. maybe its got something to do with his build i dunno? compared too hugh grant he looks 6'0-6'1 range in my opinion.

185/186cm max, Rob

Rob, would Firth wake up at 188cm?

[Editor Rob: he is likely more 6ft 1-1.5 range than 6ft 1.5-2 range of course, but I'm sure he loses 0.75 inch at least from waking.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/11
Well Firth doesn't look 2 inches taller than Rush

Does not look it at the moment

Rampage Rush is not 182cm today though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/11
Not necessarily James...if Rush is 5"11 flat, Firth looks 6"0.5(184cm). But we need to take into account that his posture isnt all that great. In the last pic he does look at least 6"1 though.
James said on 20/May/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/May/11
With the exception of the last pic, I see max 1-1.5in between Firth and Rush

Could that mean Firth is 6ft then? I always thought on screen firth just looked 6' even.

Aswell James, Nicholas Hoult is 6"2.5(189cm) not a full 6"3. Firth was 2 inches shorter
He does look a lot taller than Rush here

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/May/11
He's definitely shorter than Pierce Brosnan whose genuinely 187cm
James said on 13/May/11
Actually he could be 187cm when you see how much taller he looks than now 180cm Geoffrey Rush.

So maybe
Colin Firth 6'1.5 (187cm)
Nicholas Hoult 6'3 (191cm)
Geoffrey Rush 5'11 (180cm) Peak 5'11.5 (182cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/11
6"0 onwards is tall...
Josh B said on 10/May/11
@cranberries
6ft 1.5in is not above average, that would be about 5ft 11in to 6ft 1in, above that and the majority of people would see you as "tall". Even 5ft 10in, depending on where you live, is usually considered slightly above average,i wouldn't consider putting Colin in the same category as that.
Cranberries said on 8/May/11
Not tall; "above average" would be a realistic term. Looks tall though, due to his narrow bones and small head. Looked tall next to the short Helena Bonham Carter in King's Speech.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/11
He's not that low...he's probably 185cm or maybe at best 186cm
Chameleon said on 2/May/11
If he looked the same height as Jim Carrey then he is 183/184cm.
Chameleon said on 2/May/11
Jim Carrey is 184cm max how many times do I have to tell you?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Apr/11
6"2 is silly...186cm looks probable for Firth

I think Jim Carrey is 187-188cm
Lenad is sexy said on 24/Apr/11
The 6ft2 is clearly a stretch
Lenad is sexy said on 24/Apr/11
He looked the same height as Jim Carrey if not a bit shorter. Carrey is only in the 6'1 range. I'd give Firth 186cm tops
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/11
honestly though... the only time this guy sees 187cm is first thing out of bed...by dinnertime he's probably just a shade below the 6"1 mark
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/11
Wouldn't amaze me if he measured even a little below the 6ft1 at the end of the day
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Apr/11
He's not 6ft2
Klaus said on 1/Apr/11
Colin looks very big in "the king's speech", like a 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/11
His height should be switched with Pierce Brosnan's...

It should be Colin Firth 6ft1.25(186cm), Pierce Brosnan 6ft1.5(187cm)
James said on 30/Mar/11
well maybe a short women said that he made her think feel like tinkerbell? To a short women a 6ft or 6'1 guy will look very tall.

186cm is defenintly more accurate for this guy than 187cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/11
I doubt he's shrunk...he's just always been around 186cm max
Aaron said on 28/Mar/11
How could this guy make someone feel like "Tinkerbell"? 6'1.5" is hardly very tall. He barely looks 6'1" in The King's Speech. Seems like a very common height. I doubt he weighs more than 175 either.
James said on 27/Mar/11
the guy looks in ok shape so i don't think he has lost anything really signifignt yet.... that said with nicholas hoult he defnintly does not look over 6'1
mcfan said on 27/Mar/11
In response to the March 1st comment Shaun, this is quite clearly an illusion with the tilting of the camera and Bale closer in the shot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/11
Why do you still have this man pegged at 187cm, Rob?

[Editor Rob: he might be that earlier in the day and go towards 6ft 1, but I've not changed it yet as I wanted to see if he has lost height or not.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Mar/11
I suppose I could settle for 186cm...
James said on 9/Mar/11
Yeah 6'1 1/2 out of bed.

This is what i think
Colin Firth 6'1.25 (186cm)
Hugh Grant 5'11.25 (181cm)

there is exactley 2 inches between them.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/11
Rob would 6"1 flat be possible?

[Editor Rob: 6ft 1-1.5 is a range that you could argue both ends of, maybe he does drop to 6ft 1 and wakes near 6ft 2]
MsKitty said on 2/Mar/11
I don't understand the whole tall guys wearing lifts thing...what qualifies as lifts? Because I have a pair of work boots that I wear which give me almost 2 inches in height, though I don't wear them to add height. Of course, I'm a girl and haven't the insecurities that men apparently have about my height. I guess it doesn't make sense to me why Colin Firth, even if he IS "only 6 feet tall", would purposely wear lifts. Its not like he is a big action guy or anything...please, enlighten me! :)

I think he seems quite charming and down-to-earth...
jamieorr4 said on 2/Mar/11
this guy wears lifts
James said on 1/Mar/11
Rob is 185cm or 186cm a possiblity for Firth?

[Editor Rob: 186cm isn't out of question as has been argued for a couple of years now.]
Shaun said on 1/Mar/11
Click Here

Rob, who looks taller Firth or Bale? Is camera angle/posture creating an illusion?

[Editor Rob: maybe the camera is low enough so that bale being nearer adds more height than if it were up near their heads.]
Shaun said on 1/Mar/11
Yeah its weird, Christian Bale also looked taller than Firth in the Oscar pics!!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/11
Warren Beatty is not 6"2(188cm) anymore...more 186-187cm

Firth looks shorter so 6"1(185cm)
George H. said on 28/Feb/11
6'1" something looks right, looking at this pic with 6'2" Warren Beatty taken at the Oscars last night Click Here
MsKitty said on 26/Feb/11
Hahaha...you guys are so funny with how crazy you get over a centimeter or two.

And as for being 50 means he has had to have lost height is totally not true. I know 50 year olds who haven't lost height yet. My dad didn't lose any height until he reached 60 or better. Therefore, it is possible. Especially if you are fairly fit and healthy...
Shaun said on 24/Feb/11
6''1" flat.
SAK said on 19/Feb/11
Most places have him @ 185cm/6ft1 and he looks it, this guy needs to be downgraded slightly,
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Feb/11
Brosnan 6"1.5(187cm)
Firth 6"1(185cm)
James said on 28/Jan/11
187cm is exzaggerated for both brosnan and firth.
MsKitty said on 23/Jan/11
I've watched Mamma Mia! so many times (because I love it!) And I'm fairly certain that Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan are exactly the same height barefoot. In fact, throughout the film they seem to switch back and forth with who appears taller. 187 is correct for both these fellas! :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jan/11
Probably 186-187cm in the morning and 6"1 flat in the afternoon
James said on 20/Jan/11
Colin could be 185cm in my opinon.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jan/11
Well he is if Colin Firth is 187cm
James said on 15/Jan/11
Hugh is not 182cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jan/11
I think Hugh Grant is 182cm and Colin Firth is 185cm
James said on 8/Jan/11
you know it could always be hugh grants hairstyle? Any when thier in films together and in photos there really does not look 2.5 between them.
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/11
i think 6'1.5" is right.How can one be sure about 0.5"?but he is about the height he claimed.He looks more tahn 2"taller than 5'11" Hugh Grant in all their publicity photos.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/11
You weren't saying that awhile back James...but I agree he doesn't look 187cm
James said on 1/Jan/11
6'1 1/2 is extreme for firth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/10
The absolute most I could accept for this guy is 186cm
SAK said on 21/Dec/10
I think he is spot on 6ft1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/10
He didn't look 187cm next to Hugh Grant at all...

Rob this guy can't be over 6"1?

omg if the man says he is 6 foot one and a half then he is!

Then if I say "I'm 6'10" I'm really that tall. Agree?

6'1.5 is actually 186.69, so not quite 187.
There's a possibility he's around 186 (or maybe 186.5) at lowest, so he's close enough that claim.
James said on 6/Dec/10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Dec/10
No James...he hasn't lost height.

He's just never been taller than 6"1

Hmmm you know it could be a case of him being 6'1 peak and 6ft.05-6'0.75 today?

Certainly he looks 184cm with Nicholas Hoult.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/10

James said on 2/Dec/10
If you look at Colin Firth with 189cm Nicholas Hoult recently he looks under 187cm. I think maybe he peaked at 6'1.5 and today is 186cm?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/10
Sorry, Larc?

He looks 0.5in shorter than Hanks in that pic...But is obviously hunched
Aswell Jim Broadbent was 6"2 in his prime and is still near that height today at 186-187cm.

Face it, the man has never been over 6"1(185cm)
Larc186-188cm said on 30/Nov/10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 10/Nov/10
Ok, he does look 186-187cm with Cillian Murphy.

But, lol how is he looking eyelevel with 6"0 flat Tom Hanks?

The angle of the camera is very bad, he's also bending his legs in that photo, and despite this he still looks a bit taller than Hanks.
Here's the full pic:

6'1.25 minimum, he's taller than 6'1 Jim Broadbent.
Keely said on 13/Nov/10
How can you say Colin isn't totally slim?? He def looks atleast 6'1". He's not scrawny but he's def on the slim side!! Just perfect in my opinion!!!

l0ck n l0ad said on 17/Nov/05
funny! having watched bridget's diary and another movie he starred in i thought the guy was in the 6'3 - 6'4 range he actually did look tall there... oh well if he admits himself to be 6'1.5 i guess seems reasonable imho...
george said on 25/May/05
If he had shrunk, then everyone else would seem taller; however, in this case he is saying that whenever he is around Rupert Everett, Everett seems taller than usual.
