How tall is Elijah Wood ?

Elijah Wood's Height is 5ft 5in (165 cm)

American actor best known for playing Frodo in The Lord of The Rings movies. In an AOL Chat when he was 14 Elijah said "I'm about 5'4" and in 2001 Virginian Pilot, quoted: "I'm 5 foot 6, but Frodo is something like 3 feet". I met him July 2006 and thought he looked 5ft 5. Another quote (from Birmingham Mail) mentioned him saying, "I'm 5ft 6in,' he says proudly. 'Make that 5ft 7in on a good day"

You got a picture with him?
[Editor Rob: he didn't want to stand]

Rob, how tall would you say is the blonde girl wearing the pink dress comparing her with elijah (who is 5ft5), sasha grey(5ft 6) and Pablo Motos(who you said he is a little below 5 ft5) She is wearing very big heels, so its difficult to guess.

[Editor Rob: 5ft 8 maybe]

I seen this guy at the Arclight movie theater in Hollywood. There is NO WAY this guys is 5"5. He's 5"3 on a good day.
Sean said on 15/Jul/14
Have you seen much of Jason Gann on the American version of Wilfred, Rob? He's listed at 5'10", and seems at least 5'9" range next to Elijah.
[Editor Rob: I think he can look 5 inches taller than Elijah, I can believe 5ft 10 for Gann]
The Pippin Club said on 30/Apr/14
We are huge Lord of the Rings fans and we all agree that Frodo looks different heights in different scenes. When he's talking to Sam in The Dead Marshes, he looks taller than he does in the Prancing Pony. Apparently it's Elijah Wood not the camera that makes Frodo different sizes. By the way, Elijah, you are an awesome actor and a wonderful Frodo.
carl199cm said on 3/Feb/14
all the hobbits are around 5"7 but frodo was a weak 5"5. to make the hobbit look short they had to include fellowship actors to be shorter than 6" as possible sean bean mortensen bloom are all 5"11 ish.
Hola said on 21/Nov/13
probs 5'5 and a quarter like marshall allman
James Crowley Meridius said on 19/Nov/13
Rob is there a chance elijah wood could be in the 5ft 6in range he can't be 5ft 7in because he was 5ft 7in he wouldn't have been tower by charlie hunnam the guy he was standing next too who is looks 5ft 10in range in green street.

jasperwazup said on 17/Oct/13
how much would he weigh considering the 5'5'' listing. about 9 stone.
[Editor Rob: seems a good shout yeah]
Jag175cm said on 22/Aug/13
Guys he cannot be over 5ft 5 because in this pic he stands shorter than 5ft 5.5in Jason Schwartzman, obviously not by much it's barely visible.

Here's the pic:

cd said on 19/Aug/13
Rob, can we change him to 5'5.25 since you agree that he may be a fraction over 5'5? Also you did say a while back that you thought he looked 5'5-5.5 range. I've had a look at the other hobbits too and I think there is just a single inch (maybe a tad less) between him and Freeman. I used to think Martin Freeman was only 167 cm (I'm not sure if he's a lift wearer or not) but now I think 5'5.25 for Wood and 5'6-6.25 for Freeman is reasonable. What do you think?
[Editor Rob: 5.25 could be ok]
Balrog said on 10/Aug/13
Rob you think there's a chance he's 166 cm? He looks that next to Monaghan.
[Editor Rob: he can look a fraction over 5ft 5]
Meg said on 2/Jul/13
He is 5' 5". Its in the Lord of the Rings behind the scenes books and videos. I remember because I am only 4' 11" and said to myself - Ha! He's hot and short enough for me :p
Emil said on 30/Jun/13
In Green Street he could look 5'10! Amazing what different camera angles and perspectives can make
Silent d said on 22/Jun/13
Rob if you've met him then maybe he is 5 foot 5 but he was shorter than robin williams.
Yaspaa said on 1/Apr/13
The camera is looking up, you can't really tell.
Sasha said on 21/Mar/13
Look here:

Elijah (2-nd from the left) looks 1.5-2" taller than Peter Jackson (4-th from the left). Actually he looks even 3" taller, but I made a correction, because Elijah is closer to the camera. Peter is listed 5'4.75" here. So Elijah is at least 5'6.25" (168 cm).
Hobbit 101 said on 20/Jan/13
i think the height on him is cut personally but i was estimate maybe 5'6" -5'7" i don't think he is much taller then that
185-186 said on 20/Jan/13
166 cm maybe a bit more i think
Balrog said on 15/Jan/13
He should be 5'5.5'' because in every pic he's 1-1.5'' shorter than Dominic Monaghan who you met and you're sure he's 5'7''
richkid123 said on 30/Dec/12
He did look kinda tall in Green Street Hooligans. Tended to hold his own quite a bit. Looks shortish in Wilfred. I have seen him in person and he is indeed short. 5'5"
anonangel said on 22/Dec/12
Well my classmate met him a few yrs ago and says he was about 5'7". That's all I know.
Killa B said on 13/Oct/12
I seen this guy at the Archlight Theater in Hollywood. There's no way this guy is 5 ft 6 inches. IMPOSSIBLE. I'm 5'9 I was in line to get popcorn behind him.
Emil said on 26/Sep/12
In Green Street he looked 5'10 in a few scenes.
Anyway he definately isn't nowhere near it. 5'5 Max
Johnnyfive said on 16/Sep/12
This height is what he looked in the Faculty next to 5'6 Jordana Brewster. In her heels she was like 4 inches taller than him and every dude dwarfed him in that film, even weak 5'8 Usher. 5'5 is spot on.
Shaun said on 7/Sep/12
Yeah 5'5" I think is about right. No way is he over 5'6"!!
Shaun said on 7/Sep/12

His girlfriend is 5ft7/170cm, In this pic next to her he looks 5ft3, ok you if you into account that he was walking so he is lowered, but still looks 5ft4 next to her, so I will say he is 5ft4 @ best.

good grief he looks like Michael J. Fox in that photo and 5'4"!

Rob is he only former child actor that is still acting is it very rare for former child actors too still be acting a lot of them quite and never came back any reason why.
BigT said on 30/Jul/12
Elijah Wood - 162 cm (164 cm if Dom is 170 cm)
Dominic Monaghan - 168 cm
[Editor Rob: I've met 3 of the 4 'hobbits' and still think Elijah is in 5ft 5-5.5 range, Dominic, if not 5ft 7 very close and Sean Astin between 5ft 6 and 6.5]

Maximus Meridius says on 28/Aug/11
Rob are average height men below average height men and short men are more likely too look young for their age then taller people Leonardo DiCaprio is a tall man and he still looks young even for 36 he can still pass for a good 18 years younger.

Leo does look younger, but really 18 years younger. 18 i don't think so. Is that with heavy make-up on and moisturizers. i do think he looks 10 years younger putting him in his mid 20's but not any younger that's silly. he does have wrinkles you know and i'm suppose to believe that makes him 18 years younger.
Anna said on 14/Oct/07
That's well high for girls. Wow. The average here, in the UK, is 5'4" ish (give or take). NZ being New Zealand? Quite cool if it is, I've always wanted to got there, but have never been. I've been to Australia, but not New Zealand. It looks absolutely fantastic.

[Editor Rob: but you're from Minneapolis...]
Lady said on 14/Oct/07
Yea I'd say he's around 5'5. Saw him in NZ welly back in 2001. Looks 5'5 ish

and Ana here in NZ in the south the average height for girls is 5'6". Which I believe is a high average, but not in the world.
Anna said on 25/Sep/07
I actually think, after looking at some photos of Elijah, Daniel could be taller than him. I dunno why, but Dan just looks taller. Does anyone else feel the same way?
Anna said on 2/Sep/07
Jon, according to an article I read (of which I cannot say the name), Danish men are, on average, 5'11", so yes, they are quite tall. The women are averaged at 5'5", which is also one of the highest averages for women in the world. Just if you wanted to know.
Jon Doe said on 31/Aug/07
Clemence my grandfather is danish and he's only 5'6.Are the danish usually tall?
Adam Brennon said on 22/Aug/07
I breifly met him once on the set of green street. I was sixteen at the time and 5' 6" and whilst I did'nt tower over him I was quite obviously taller. He's a terrific guy though. His height's an irrelevence.
Chip said on 21/Aug/07
You said exactly what I was going to say, Anna. It's really quite scary how similar they are.
Viper said on 15/Aug/07
And when I think of Harry Potter I also think of Lord of the rings. And vice versa.
glenn said on 15/Aug/07
im leaning in.
Anna said on 14/Aug/07
Also, am I the only one who finds it slightly uncanny how similar Dan Radcliffe and Elijah Wood are? They both play parts in fantasy series (which are actually quite similar in their own ways), they both look extremely similar, and they are around the same height. Has anyone else noticed this? haha, how can you not....
Anna said on 14/Aug/07
He barely looks shorter than Glenn in the photo? Is Glenn just leaning that much?
Bibs said on 8/Jul/07
I've seen pictures of both Elijah and Dominic Monaghan (who is reputedly five-seven and the tallest of the 'hobbits'). They were both in evening shoes for the Oscars that were remarkably similar in sole, and Elijah was a half-inch or so shorter. Also, his girlfriend, Pam Racine, is 5'7", and I've seen pictures of them walking side-by-side in sneakers, and they are very close to the same height (the top of his head hits around her hairline), though Pam's super-long legs make her look quite tall by herself, as does her duskier Asian skin.

As to his weight, he's on the rather thin side right now (getting ready to play Iggy Pop--he has to be kind of bony) and looks to be around 135 in recent pics. In Green Street Hooligans, in peak health and fighting form, he was around 145 according to some article I came across. He's a wiry dude. But very, very beautiful nonetheless.

im partly german,Dutch Canadian and English and i come a lot in the 4 named countrys and siry to say people but the Dutch are much taller then in any other country...*****

you were born from 4 different mothers? lol
every1ishuge said on 28/Jun/07
Yeah the dutch really are huge. Anyone who has been to Amsterdam will be able to tell you that. The disbelievers usually are the ones that haven't been there.
Average height is indeed nearly 6'1 for young dutch men.
I went there wearing 1.8 inch shoes again recently bringing me up to 6'1.3 (barefeet 5'11.5') and I was only average height at very best.
By the way I'm very good at judging height and measuring my own.

Dunken said on 15/Jun/07
5'11.5 guy: read the post again.

the average is 5'11 but guys that tall are extremely rare around here. i even comment on the fact that most males are somewhere between 5'4 and 5'10 and it's obvious i'm doubting that average (which is believe is 5'7.5/5'8 for males in general and 5'8.5/5'9 for 16 to 24).
Steve "thorgrim" said on 13/Jun/07
the british are taller than the portugese, end of story, i competed in those two counteries. The tallest people in the world (on average) are the serbians in Dinaric mountain range, at some 186-87 i believe. And thats a fact, they are even taller than the dutch.
5'11.5 guy said on 10/Jun/07
Dunken, if you think the Portuguese are taller than the British, you are seriously delusional.
cute said on 29/May/07
Hey guys... don't know why you all wanna be 6'4 - 6'6.... hello whats wrong with you.....!!??? i live in denmark... here males are some of the heighest in the world...still the average height is 5'11 ..180-181 cm... not many guys are 6'4... not even in denmark or the rest of northern europe... in my class there are two guys who are 6'3... and they are tall!!!! actually it lookes kind of akwared when they are that tall compared to the rest of us....(and the rest of us aren't samll)... so remember it's very rare and unlikly to be 6'4 or over...
antron said on 3/May/07
Elijah is now dating a back up dancer from Gogoll Bordello, she appears quite a bit taller than him in heels; and he appears to be wearing both boots AND lifts, if not both, then at least very chunk footwear: Click Here
Good lookin' gal though, way to go Frodo

I think swedes come off taller than the danish. the 1 inch taller danish does not come off as true, really find it hard to believe.
cute said on 20/Apr/07
lol.. i'm from denmark.. but not sure we are that hieght.. i denmark and sweden i think we are about 5'11 - 180....
i dont know about the other nothern europe countries.. but
Italy = 175-176
spain = some places 173 others 176
every1huge said on 20/Apr/07
Average height of males born in 1976 - 1980 in various European countries (including Portugal Dunken which is the lowest)
Denmark 183.7 (6'0.3)
Sweden 181.2 (5'11.3)
Austria 179.6 (5'10.7)
Belgium 179.5 (5'10.7)
Finland 178.7 (5'10.4)

Ireland 177.4 (5'9.8)
Italy 177.1 (5'9.7)
Spain 176.1 (5'9.3)
Portugal 172.9 (5'8.1)

From a separate study the average for US age 20-39 is 5'10.1
cute said on 20/Apr/07
hey 5'11 guy..
the average height in Uk is 5'9.5... for sure.. looked it op on the internet
and for dutch/german people the average is 5'
in denmark where i'm from the average is 5'11..180...
but for Uk and dutch it' pretty much the same for males
Dunken said on 20/Apr/07
the average for the UK is 5'9, young people 16 to 24 is 5'10. where you live doesn't represent the entire UK and the Dutch students/tourists you see don't represent the entire Dutch population.

here in Portugal the male average is 5'11 and yet, i don't think i've seen more than a dozen poeple over that where i live, with most of the guys being between 5'4 to 5'10.
5'11.5 guy said on 19/Apr/07
No, it's not. The average height where I live is 5'11-6ft. I see Dutch students/tourists over here and they are no taller than us Brits.
Antron said on 18/Apr/07
actually 5'11'' guy, it is just about that, 5'9'' or 5'10'' depending on the survey. Very similar to the US
5'11 guy said on 2/Apr/07
I know for sure that 5'9 isn't the average here in the UK. Young people aren't any shorter than the Dutch, to be honest.

Marcel said on 19/Mar/07
No doubt about it 6'3'' is tall, but it isn't verging on giantism or anything. Tall no doubt though.
Viper said on 16/Mar/07
6-3 is pretty tall everywhere.
TJ said on 15/Mar/07
Marcel, it is very much out there to consider 6'3 average. The stats make that comment ridiculous.
trueheight said on 6/Mar/07
I'm 5'9 and have a 39in vertical - I can dunk with a run-up pretty easily. My vert gain is from this program I've been doing since my teens. At 14, I gained about 15in in vertical jump height and have retained that for about 8yrs.
luke said on 4/Mar/07
i would personally take 5-10 over the height i am (6-10), simply due to the fact, my clothing is limited to basketball shorts and really loose jeans(im skinny), and girls generally think im kind of freakish
Anshelm said on 12/Feb/07
On Jim's comment, just for the record: I got and average of 204 cm (6'8") for NBA players, and 184 cm (6'") for WNBA using the stats from the according websites. This was a while a go, though, cirka 2000.

And I'm very close to Alex's strategic measurements ;) Don't really work out, but I do ride the bicycle 8,00010,000 km (5,0006,000 mi) a year.
Viper said on 11/Feb/07
I have naturally large calves. I guess Im blessed there.
Jim said on 10/Feb/07
I'm 6'2, and it's pretty ridiculous to assume I'm an inch under average. The only thing 6'3 could be average for is the NBA. As for average height for an American man, last time I talked to my doctor, he said 5'9.5, and I'll trust that. 5'5 sounds about right for Frodo, though.
Alex said on 25/Jan/07
Calves are probably the toughest body part to get bigger honestly. My calves are only 15.5 inches but my thighs are 25.5 inches though. I don't got small calves but they're not big either.
Alex said on 25/Jan/07
6'3 is quite above average height. Average height for a man is what 5'9-5'9.5 but when I see a guy 5'10 I'd say he's average height. 6'3 isn't very tall though but its tall alright. 6'3 isn't one of the heights that stands out in a crowd like 6'5 plus would.
Viper said on 10/Jan/07
Its waaaaayyyyyy above average. At 6-3 you are usually the tallest or one of the tallest in a room full of strangers.
Leung said on 8/Jan/07
Viper, thats true there are skinny guys like Iverson who have mad hops, but developing the leg muscles helps a lot.
Leung said on 8/Jan/07
bombay rocker, 511.5. But when I was trying to dunk I was only 15 at the time and about 58.
Dunken said on 8/Jan/07
isn't the average, for the most part, 5'10/5'11?

batter shave some inches of your "average", Legend, lol.
Viper said on 8/Jan/07
Yes, Legend is indeed nuts. Either that or he lives in the land of the giants.
Viper said on 8/Jan/07
A lot of these guys who have crazy verticals have chicken legs, so its not all about having large calves. Its just that they are athletic freaks.
bombay rocker said on 8/Jan/07
hey how tall are u leung?
legend stopper are u nuts...i mean ok u think 6 feet 3 is perfect but u say ITS JUST thats funny(you are very tall if you are 6 feet 3)taller than about 85- 90% guys...

[Editor Rob: post your other wahlberg comment again]
Steve Savage said on 8/Jan/07
5'5" with his cuban heels and lifts.

Even Kim Jong Il is tall compared to elijah
Leung said on 7/Jan/07
I admit that Im guilty of having the perception that Froddo as a midget, but if you think rationally then you realise that he isnt out of the ordinary, I could go out on the street and spot a couple 55 guys. Its just that hes a celebrity that we make a big deal about his height.

With friends and family we really dont pay any special attention to their height. My Dad is 55 and Mums 410 but their height is something that I would rarely think about except maybe when occasionally someone would point out the significant height difference between mum and myself (511.5).
Anthony said on 7/Jan/07
I'm about 5'7. I wouldn't mind 6'6 but in reality, if I had to choose, I wouldn't want to be much over 6'4. I know some tall people who say there are cons that come with it. Also, considering most women in the world are 5'4, I hear getting a girlfriend could be quite troublesome since most women don't want to be dwarfed by their male companion. Though I do know a 6'10 guy with a 5' wife.

Oh, and on topic, 5'5 looks exactly right for Wood.
Glenn said on 7/Jan/07
True Viper.anything over 6-4 can look akward.they say the taller one is,the more their income is too.serious.
Alex said on 7/Jan/07
If you're 6'6 you can pack on weight better than someone who is much shorter. I'd take 6'6 over 5'6 still. At 6'6 you could get up to 250lbs without being so stocky for example. I wouldn't wanna be 6'6 though. I wouldn't mind being 6'2 at all though.
Dunken said on 7/Jan/07
lol, at 5'6 you're still taller than most girls and what has height have to do with respect and getting people listen to you? people will listen if you're charismatic or important, not if you're tall, lol.

the most well respected world leaders and entertainers are well below average.

i guess it's an American thing i cannot understand. i've been to many european countries (i'm from one, as well), and i've never witnessed such obsession with being tall.
anonymous said on 7/Jan/07
i am 5 feet 6 and i feel short and wish i cud be tall like atleast 5 feet 10 to 6 feet. Nothing over that.I feel 6 feet is the perfect height for guys,i wud even settle for 5 feet 11. I wud just be so happy. I think being over 5 feet 10 you have an advantage since you are taller than most of the chics, you feel more confident and people listen to you more. I dont mean to say that people below that dont have a life or they cant date women or they are not attractive at all. Look at guys like tom cruise and mark wahlberg. Iassure you both of them have dated loads and loads of chics and some even taller than them, so its not that people who are 5 feet 4 - 5 feet 8 cant date. look at glenn he is 5 feet 8 and he has confessed on some page that he has been with many women so you shud be happy and not be depressed. But yea height has advantages.thx
Dunken said on 7/Jan/07
i wouldn't trade my 5'6 for a single inch.
besides, can anyone present a legit reason why being over 5'11 has any advantage, aside from making weak people less insecure? because, aside from that, i don't see any reason at all (maybe if you want to be a basketball player, but still).
Viper said on 7/Jan/07
Hmm, Im not so sure Id take 6-6 over 5-6. At 6-6 with a thin or skinny body type you might look like a lurch. Plus it stands out waaaayyyyyy too much. The coolest thing about it would be the ability to dunk a basketball If you have a good vertical.
Glenn said on 6/Jan/07
6-6 over 5-6 is tough.but I guess Id pick 6-6.not sure.6-3 in a heartbeat over 5-3!
Alex said on 6/Jan/07
Glenn, it appears on this site most would like to be in the 5'11-6'1 range. Thats a good range though. My friend is 6'5 and likes his height. For me I wouldn't wanna be too tall but not too short but any day I'd take 6'6 over 5'6.
Alex said on 6/Jan/07
Leonari, whatever I'm not going to argue about comments. I wasn't trying to offend you in anyway so you don't have to get nasty.
leonari said on 6/Jan/07
Alex: the connections in your brain are SUPER-Short thats why you post stupidities!!
Glenn said on 5/Jan/07
I know you meant no harm.your right speak the truth.
Alex said on 5/Jan/07
It wasn't a smart comment. I was telling what I felt. I would hate to be that short. I'm happy at 6'0.5 even though I wouldn't mind being 6'2 at all. Glenn you're at a height of 5'8 where you're short but not super short like 5'6 and under.
Glenn said on 5/Jan/07
I feel you on that.5-8 is my short cut off.I made it.of course I wish I was 5-10.6ft max.I dont like the idea of tall either.of course Ill take 6-3 over 5-5 any day!
leonari said on 5/Jan/07
Alex: smart comment.... why post such non-sense here? make yourself a favor: leave.
Alex said on 4/Jan/07
If I was as short as 5'5-5'6 I couldn't live with myself. lol
The shortest possible that I wouldn't mind being is 5'10.

ice said on 12/Dec/06
This is the funniest page ever. Why does everybody keep calling Elijah "Frodo" like that's his real name? LOL Poor guy will never outlive his Lord of the Rings fame.
Leung said on 7/Dec/06
Yeah, there is only an inch difference. In most circumstances I would expect Williams to be at least 2 inches taller than Froddo. OK so how do we explain them looking very similar in height? A couple of things; it could have been a long day for Williams and he is at his low point during the day, and Froddo might be fresh off an inversion table.

[Editor Rob: williams could be reaching the age of shrinkenment, well very small amount]
Leung said on 6/Dec/06
I agree, that pic with Robin Williams is amazing, my only explanation is that Froddo is standing on a telephone book

[Editor Rob: he's about an inch smaller, see the wireimage gallery for straight on photo, but he's in converse, that is correct, williams, I can't make out his trainer...might be short aswell, similar.]
leonari said on 6/Dec/06
The pic with williams is tricky...he is closer to the camera...I still go with the listed height : 5'5" it is!
sf said on 13/Nov/06
Yes, that proves it! Unless, of course, he had lifts on.......
whateva said on 12/Nov/06
i am 5'5 no three quarters no halves i was i was in two inch heels he was wearing boots that had maybe one inch sole we were the same height therefore the man is 5 foot 6 cause when i took my shoes off (they hurt my feet he was about two inches taller!!!
trueheight said on 4/Sep/06
at 5'9, my range seems pretty limited, may i'm just no good at it. No shorter than 5'6 and no taller than 6ft.

There was this MTV punked episode w/ Wood who looked like a teenager; he looked really small, he was wearing sneakers; acted very girlish as well
Glenn said on 7/Jul/06
I think it might be a bit true,the theory that we can spot out the shorter guys heights better Rob.

[Editor Rob: well, at 5ft 8 you have the 5ft 4-6ft range pretty much covered, over 6ft+ maybe it can be harder to guess.

If you are 5ft 11 3/4 like Mr R, I guess you can judge better around 6ft etc...but, there might be tendency to underestimate the further from your height.
leonari said on 6/Jul/06
ROB: THANKS MAN! FINALLY Elijah has his correct height
Told you all along... He is tiny. But cool actor.

Now you can really gauge that Im 5-8,cause I was one of those 5-5 supporters.and saw what you saw at your 5-8 level.

[Editor Rob: yes, this is true...corroboration on 5ft 8ers ;-)]
Editor Rob said on 5/Jul/06
I did manage to stand beside him a couple of times and all saying no more than 5ft 5...were 100% correct. Less said about his security the better...
leonari said on 28/Jun/06
Now way shorter than 5'4.5" but never 5'6". Those heels look enourmous if you look close.
Dagger said on 27/Jun/06
It don't help much cause you can't really see what kind of heels they have on their shoes.
leonari said on 8/Jun/06
No way 5'6" way. Absolute max is 5'5" . 5'6" is his official height. What about the hollywood 2 inch rule ROB? Don't you take it into account?? why?
British Guy said on 25/May/06
Come On!!

As I stated before am around 5ft 6/7in...

Truly believe that this guy is shorter than 5ft 6in!!

Elijah seems to be quite a fan of cowboy boots... HMHMMMMM
Anonymous said on 27/Apr/06
If he was actually a solid 5'6 you would hardly be able to tell from the pic, he looks closer to 5'5.
Dagger said on 26/Apr/06
Looking at the picture above and the way Glenn is leaning to the side I'd give an estimate of 5'5 for Elijah, and not an inch more. He does wear boots a lot and so might look taller. But out of bed I'd say 5'4 is the max. He looked pretty little on Ellen the few times I've seen him, and she's I think 5'7.
Polska said on 16/Apr/06
Rob, look how much Glenn is leaning in. His 5'5" estimation looks to be much closer to the truth.
Editor Rob said on 13/Apr/06
Peter Jackson: "we ended up looking for people that were around about five-foot-five to five-foot-seven. Yeah, only a two or three inch range. Because anything over -- if they were taller than that, they didn?t look right. So, if you look at the four Hobbits that we cast, I mean they're all exactly the same size. They're all like five-foot-six"

ForensicNYC, in the photo Frodo has his head tilted a bit and it appears that his posture could be better, doesn't appear to 4" difference.
Frodo is a little dude but 5'4" is an exaggeration, 5'5"-5'5.5" would be acceptable for the Frodo.
ForensicNYC said on 31/Mar/06
Eli must be wearing his LOTC hairy feet because if Glenn stands really erect, that would give him a clear 4" advantage... Glenn 5'8" less four inches would be acceptable...Eli is really 5'4"...
Leung said on 26/Mar/06
56 or 55 for Froddo is ok, but 160lbs is definitely out of the question. For someone that height to be 160lb they have either an athletic build or are a bit overweight, and Froddo looks neither so 145lb would be my estimate.
TNTinCA said on 23/Mar/06
160 pounds? That is ridiculous. 145 is feasible based on his height and body type. A friend of mine stands 5'10" and weighs 165 lbs with a much more muscular frame that Frodo.
Glenn said on 21/Mar/06
I agree.
Anonymous said on 20/Mar/06
I stood next to Elijah at the Strokes Show in Austin Texas on March 14th. I was in converses (at 5'7.75") and he was in boots and was two inches shorter. I think he could be 5'6" but 5'5" is probably a better flat-foot height.
Serene said on 13/Feb/06
Huh?? Eik..I don't think that Elijah is 5'4"..could be more than 5'4"..
Height Tracker said on 18/Jan/06
Rob, looks like all evidence points to Mr. Wood being 5'5". You should change him.
Glenn said on 17/Jan/06
yeah I was bending and leaning in.he's 5-5.have more with him coming.
CoolJ said on 16/Jan/06
Fat chance on the 5'6" .. "Frodo" is looking 5'5 at MOST.
175cm16andgrowing said on 15/Jan/06
Yes, he looks 5'6'' but no 160lbs. Let's say Bloom is 5'10 and around 150 (when he's skinny again) so I guess Elijah is also aeound 150 or 145.

Nikki said on 13/Nov/05
He is 5'6 and weighs 160 if he was 5'4 then he would look heavier.
Desiree said on 13/Oct/05
I thought that Elijah was pretty short too. Or at least he seems to be. But Charlie Hunnam is about 6 ft or so and I saw Elijah standing next to him and he didn't appear to be but maybe 4 inches shorter than him. I could be wrong though I'm terrible with hieght and age.
TNTinCA said on 6/Sep/05
There is a picture of Elijah next to the owner of my kickboxing studio. (He is a stunt man for Hollywood) They are exactly the same height in the picture and I know for a fact that the kickboxing studio owner is 5'6". Even says so on his driver's license. I think 5'6" is right on the mark.
Andrea said on 4/Sep/05
If he's not 5'6", he's at least 5'5". When my sister and I bumped into him in New York, he was a good two and a half or three inches taller than my sister, who's 5'3" exactly.
nReal said on 15/Aug/05
i bumped into him about two years ago on 23rd St & 5th ave in nyc smoking a cigarette. he did look about 5'6", although the sidewalk is slanted up from the street and technically he was on 'higher ground' than i was. then again he was wearing shoes and had spiked up hair.
Mr. R said on 26/May/05
J.(The Real One!) - Glad to hear that I did not miss you! I have no other celebheight buddies who are local. When you are coming, let me know. We can bop around Hollywood, and measure the celebs. My email is
Also, regarding your comments about lifts and earthquakes, I have one word: superglue!
J. (The real one!) said on 25/May/05
Nah, Mr. R! Someone just took my name!!! Yet, I do plan on coming to LA maybe in the summer (for a vacation), if all works out. I'm just scared about the earthquakes! How do all of these bit-sized stars maintain without their lifts falling off while they happen?! ;-)
Mr. R said on 24/May/05
Hey J - did you sneak into LA without letting me know?

[Editor Rob: sorry, some other guy called himself J, not to be confused with 'Proper J']
Jess said on 23/May/05
Elijah - 5ft 6?!? Oh,get real.He's really short,nowhere near 5ft 6. I think he's 5ft 5 on a very good day.He must be somewere around 5ft 4 or 5ft 4.5 max!
J. said on 23/May/05
I saw Elijah Wood at Santa Monica Boardwalk in LA... the dude is incredibly handsome, but he's very short. 5'5" is my best guess, without any exaggeration.
British Guy said on 21/May/05
There is no way Elijah is 5ft 6in!!

I would sell my Granny if this would prove my point

I met him when I was younger at an event, (Then I was 5ft 4in)

I am now (5ft 7in) He was no more than 5ft 4in, I will not comment on shoes...
HAHA said on 18/Feb/05 best friends aunt is 5'4 and walked by elijah woods andt hey were the same height....No way he's 5'6
