Eric Bana's Height is 6ft 2.25in (189 cm)

Australian actor best known for roles in movies like Star Trek, The Hulk, Chopper, The Time Traveller's Wife, Troy and Munich. In the Boston Herald (14/5/04) he commented on his tall stature, saying "[I'm] Just a little over 6-foot-2". In Total Film (2011) he mentioned "My brother's very tall. He's 6ft 7ins or 8ins, so I grew up with a short-man complex. I'm just under 6ft 3ins."

Comment on the Height of Eric Bana

6'3 somewhat optimistic
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Aug/15
6ft1 is a joke. Not under 6ft2. Can look 6ft3 at times
realheight said on 18/Aug/15
He looked like a solid 6'1 in Troy with 5'11 Brad Pitt
6'2 max.
Mal said on 15/Aug/15
Hi Rob, I know you pulled down all of Glenns pictures for a reason, but I have a picture of Glenn and Bana saved on my computer where Bana appears to have 5 inches on 5'7 Glenn, maybe 6 inches if there is some odd posture involved. How come you dont take those pictures into account? I dont see Bana as more than 6'1
[Editor Rob: there's a lot more variables taking street photos.]
A6'2Guy said on 16/Jul/15
What extra heel height does Natalie have in the pic I wonder?
an anonymous peach said on 10/Jul/15
6'8" is a bad height unless you're in the NBA

brb, almost brain damaged from hitting my head off everything
brb still look like a lanky freak at 210lbs
brb I'm really smelly because shower head isn't high enough
brb airplanes are the bane of my existence
brb my average sized penis looks smaller than it really is
brb I stick out like a sore thumb everywhere I go (not good if you're an introvert)

6'2" completely destroys 6'8"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/15
Rob, do you think would measure taller Affleck, Bana, or Cusack?
[Editor Rob: all would measure reasonably close, I think affleck at times could pull off a taller impression, but I doubt you are going to find there is much more than a fraction between them.]

Perfect height 6'2.25 (188,5cm)

Eric Bana height is 6ft 2.25in (188,5 cm)
Amaze said on 19/Apr/15
ofcourse 6'2s perfect range tbh he probably just doesn't like looking at his younger brother who is 6'7/8 like looking up but his height(erics) is much better.

@8ball 6'2 way much better than 6'8 , id rather be 5'8 over 6'8 LOL
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" said on 24/Feb/15
We were around the same height, so I think that he's much close to 6'2" than he is to 6'3". I wouldn't even be surprised if he was only 6'2", or even 6'1.75".
8 Ball said on 22/Feb/15
At 6'2 and a quarter stating he's short is going over the line I think.His height is decent.Being 6'8 is to tall and would become a hinderence when it comes to walking through doors and taking showers:/ Being a little over 6'2 is a good height eric
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 14/Dec/14
Definitely looked 6ft 2in plus change in 'Deliver us From Evil'. Shorter than the even taller McHale though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/14
Right between 6ft2-6ft3.
Dmeyer said on 2/Sep/14
Probably measured 6'2.25 and 2.75 on diferant Times
Realist said on 26/Aug/14
Yeah better call. Looks about 13 cms on Mathieu Kossovitz in Munich. Hulk actors heights: Ruffalo 5'7.25
Bana 6'1.75
Norton 5'11.25
jtm said on 19/Jul/14
he wouldn't look close to pine's height if he was really 6'2 or 6'3. 6'1 is the most i would give him.
Heightwise said on 16/Jul/14
I don't think he's over 6'2. I'd say 187-188
Splinter Cell said on 29/Jun/14
Perfect height, rob? in your opinion? he looks bang on with your listing, 6'2.25-5, suprised he had that complex, his height is better than his brothers anyway. he certainly doesn't look too tall
[Editor Rob: a very desirable height yes]
pataan19 said on 1/Jun/14
Hey Rob, how would you explain the numerous photos of him with his fellow star trek co-stars (Pine, Quinto, etc). He really doesn't seem higher than 6'2" with them???
James B said on 5/May/14
Rob is a full 6'2.5 possible? He does look it.
[Editor Rob: at times he can look 6ft 2 up to 2.5, but I think his current listing is fine]
Trueman said on 28/Apr/14
It's weird because he really didn't look tall in Troy...I'd guess 5'11 for him with Brad Pitt when they fought. Although he did look much taller in Lone Surviver.
Alucard said on 9/Mar/14
He's in the 6'-6'1 range max, i'd say 6'05 top, absolutely not 6'2, lol...
Balrog said on 3/Feb/14
He could be a 6'2" flat guy but that's it. Ludwig wasn't an inch taller than him, maybe .5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/14
Rob, do think could Eric be 6ft3 out of bed?
[Editor Rob: probably on the nose]

Lenad is sexy said on 28/Dec/13
I'd give him a full 6'2.5
Lenad is sexy said on 22/Dec/13
Just looking at some more pics and a lot of the time he does look 6'3ish. I think a solid 189cm could be a better listing.
Sam said on 18/Dec/13
Sorry, definitely closer to 6'2" than 6'1", calvinator. Can't determine height solely by build.
calvinator said on 17/Dec/13
Looks max 6'1" flat, narrow shoulder bones, looks taller in thick shoes, has short upper arms for his height.
Lenad is sexy said on 14/Dec/13
This listing is bang on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/13
"Eric Bana height: 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"

Looked 6ft3 in Troy, The Hulk and Munich.
pjk said on 9/Dec/13
Looks exactly the same height as 6ft Chris Pine ( his own words ) in those group photo's, so either Pine is considerably taller than his own stated 6ft ( 6'.05" around here ) or Bana is that height also.
Looks pretty conclusive to me that he is nowhere near 6'2". When i stand next to my friend there is a noticeable difference in height ( i am 6' and he is 6'2" in all photos ).
Pleb said on 8/Dec/13
Barely has a centimeter over Pine and Urban, see Johno pic.

1.86-1.87m, no more.
keithodub said on 2/Nov/13
He is a solid 6'2" no doubt... just watched him on top gear stand toe to toe in trainers with 6'4.5" Jeremy Clarkson
truth said on 7/Oct/13
Ok to dispell the myth, Croats average 180cm, not 190cm lol.
Rusty said on 17/Sep/13
Definitely a strong 6'2". This listing is good for him. I don't think he ever dips under the mark.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jul/13
Eric Bana - 6"2.5"(189cm)
Zachary Quinto - 6"1"(185cm)
Karl Urban - 6"0.75"(185cm)
Chris Pine - 6"0.75"(185cm)

Looked a solid 3in taller than Pitt in Troy aswell. No less than this height
wartank said on 14/Jul/13
Great Full-body shots by Johno.
Shoes and posture advantage - Pine (the heels eliminated the normal slight back-leaning posture, made the shoulders thrown back, a straight line from heel to nose)
Furthest from camera - Quinto (without standing straight)
Everyone else except Pine is 'at ease', he's at 'attention'.

Conclusion: (+-0.5cm)
Bana - 187cm
Quinto- 185cm
Urban - 184cm
Pine - 184cm

lol :)
Rey said on 4/Jul/13
I remember when Bana was listed at 6'4" and then it dropped to 6'3" and so on....
cole said on 26/Jun/13
He's more 187 than 189 imo.
MJ said on 25/Jun/13
I'm surprised Eric Bana had a short-man complex due to his brother's height. 6 ft 2 is tall! 6 ft 7 is whoa!
Roic said on 13/Jun/13
Wow, Rob, look at that picture of Johno. What do you think about that? Could it be that Bana is lying about his height?
Emil said on 14/May/13
I think he looks strong 6 foot next to Pine and Quinto in a fem photos. Do you think Quinto and Pine wear lifts?
Johno said on 6/May/13

And if the message don't ring home here's a comparison shot of pine, bana and urban. Hardly anything between the three, footwear is visible. Angles are decent and picture quality is good. These 6'2+ estimates are very excruciating to observe since pine is 6'0.5 listed and urban, 6'0.75 although urban is a bit shorter then pine and looks 6'0/weak 6'0 with rob ie 5'11.75.

Pine 6'0.5
Bana 6'0.5
Urban 6'0
Johno said on 6/May/13
Bana is most definitely not taller then 6'0.5 chris Pine. Pine was about 4 - 4.5 inches taller then 5'8 range graham norton. Quinto would be similar in height to Bana with the same footwear, not quinto in low profile trainers and bana in some large trademark footwear.

Sorry, to me karl urban looked like a weak 6'0 with rob and pine is a bit taller then him at 6'0.5.

Bana is in the strong 6'0 range.
Chezza said on 1/May/13
Natalie is wearing very low hills, almost nothing, shes like 158 cm and hes 189 for sure.
Lenad is sexy said on 27/Apr/13
bana is half Croatian half german. him being 6'2-6'3 is equal to the average Australian being 5'9-5'10
Lenad is sexy said on 23/Apr/13
weak 189cm maybe? Whatever he is I don't think he's under 6'2. He's been listed as 6'4 on a few websites, but he never looks that tall and 6'5 is a big fat joke
lenad is sexy said on 31/Mar/13
Id give him a strong 6'2. Id like to see a pic of him standing next to Ashton Kutcher, I bet they'd look pretty much the same height

6ft2.5(189cm) afternoon
6ft2.5(189cm) evening
6ft2.25(189cm) night

if that is the case my friend then he's actually 6'2.5 rather than 2.25 because 6'2.25 is his absolute lowest and which is not a real legit height of that person.BTW what are your height measurements rampage?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/13
How does he remotely look 6ft5, James?
In the last pic Jackman looks to have the edge
James said on 27/Feb/13
With Hugh Jackman looks 6ft5. He also gives that impression with Natalie Portman
Sam said on 11/Jan/13
He has a slight edge I think over Hugh Jackman but their pretty similar in stature:

Jake in Urban page you'll see I though Urban next to Rob is clearly over 6 feet. But look at him next to Chris Pine who claims to be 6 feet tall:

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

So something doesn't fit with Pine 6 feet claim I mean, the guy is pretty much same height that Quinto and taller than Urban. Bana has always looked around 6'2'' and Quinto around 6'1'' and Urban like I posted in his page looked a solid 6'0'' guy which puts Pine at 6'1'' or close to it.

So my question is why a guy who is 6'1'' would claim 6 feet? I know Pine holds a great posture but still, or either he's downplaying his height or Urban, Quinto and Bana are shorter than I expected.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/12
Eric Bana 6"2.5(189cm)
Zach Quinto 6"1(185cm)
Karl Urban 6"1(185cm)
Chris Pine 6"0.75(185cm)
balrog said on 5/Dec/12
IMO: Bana 187-188
Quinto 184-185
Pine 183-184
Urban 182-183
Lenad is sexy said on 10/Nov/12
I can buy 6'1.5 at the lowest.
Claire said on 22/Oct/12
My husband is just under 6'2.5" and I am exactly 5'3". The height difference between Bana and Portman is identical to us when we are in similiar footwear.
Aragorn 5\'11 said on 20/Oct/12
He's a strong 6'2. He's 3 inches taller than Brad Pitt (5'11) and is a full inch taller than Chris Pine, Karl Urban and Zachary Quinto.
balrog said on 12/Oct/12
Bana ain't under 187 cms because he has always looked at least an inch taller than Quinto and Pine.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
'just under 6ft3' is really 6ft2.75 while 'a little over 6ft2' is 6ft2.25. So if you want to get technical about it, neither of those should correspond to 6ft2.5. But since he's claimed both of those for himself you could split the difference and list him 6ft2.5(189cm)

Sound reasonable, Rob?
jtm said on 3/Sep/12
portman is no more than 5'2 flat and most likely shorter.
Jose said on 2/Sep/12
Well, Natalie Portman who is 5'3" is wearing what it appears to be 3 1/2" inch high heels, which well make her height at 5'6 1/2", while Mr. Bana looks to be wearing dress shoes, which will lift his height to about 1 1/2" to 2". Judging from this pic I see about 9 inches of difference or so, and this puts Mr. Bana at the 6'3 1/2" mark with his dress shoes on, with out them I firmly believe he is about 6' 1.5" or 6'2".
BigT said on 25/Jul/12
185-186 cm.
Jonas said on 16/Jun/12
Close to 6'2 but not there.... 6'1.25 my bet
Penguinboy25 said on 6/Jun/12
Here he is with known 5'11.5" Josh Lucas, showing he is not near the 6'2 mark. I'd say his possible range is between 6'1 and 6'1.25". I'll say he is 186 cm.
Dani said on 6/Jun/12
He is 6'. Look at his picture with natalie portman who is 5'3". I am 6'2" and i look much taller than him.
johno said on 25/Jan/12
Chris says on 21/Jan/12
@johno. Bana always looks taller than Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine by at least one inch. He's not under 6'1.


Look at the entire the catalogue of pictures of the three. Theres numerous posted below and on zachary quinto's page. He is rarely taller then pine and pine is 6'0.5 and could be lower. Not 6'1 or above.
Jules said on 23/Jan/12
I've seen this bloke, solid 6'2" for sure.
Stood next to him at a buffet in Morocco about twelve years ago. Had a def 2 inches on me and I'm an exact 1.84m. He had 'flip flop' sandals on, as did I...

@johno. Bana always looks taller than Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine by at least one inch. He's not under 6'1.
RobertJ said on 27/Sep/07
Not the best angle but Bana looks huge next to 5'4'' McAdams.

ras said on 13/Jul/07
Bana looks shorter cause the tip of his nose doesn't reach Glenns top of the head.
RobertJ said on 29/May/07
Bana has very narrow shoulders, although not evident in the Glenn's pic, which can make him look smaller in comparison to Jackman.
glenn said on 22/May/07
i dont know where the pic is and its horrible.he is behind me several feet and im not looking in.jackman gives the illusion of being taller than bana.
OutBenchThis said on 22/May/07
Hey Glenn, did Jackman appear bigger than Bana? They both look around 6'2.5" mark but Bana in the pic with you looks flat on 6'2" so what about Jackman? Is rob going to post it up?

[Editor Rob: I've never seen it, glenn mentioned something about it not being good to show height?]
Fox said on 19/May/07
he looks 6'3

he appeared 6-2.i have a bad photo with jackman.
Korben said on 19/May/07
nice finally getting a pic with bana, now we need one with Jackman, where was this taken? Looks about 6'3 in that pic, big dude.
Anonymous said on 18/May/07
He looks at least 6'2 in that picture.
Irshgrl500 said on 17/May/07
Eric is tall and handsome. In my opinion he has been completely miscast as Henry VIII in the upcoming movie "The Other Boleyn Girl". Henry VIII was 6'2", as Eric appears to be. Their height is the only thing he and the 16th century King seem to have in common, as far as appearances go.
Viper said on 17/May/07
He looks 6-2.

Look at glenns picture with Tony Hawk. Thats 6'3.
Bana is a strong 6'2 if you will.

6'2-6'3 id say
dmeyer said on 15/May/07
pitt can look in under bana so 5'11 for pitt even in public
Boxing Fighter said on 15/May/07
Yeah RobertJ.
The photo is very conclusive.
If he was wearing regular shoes, 6ft2 to 6ft3.
Anthony said on 15/May/07
Looks an even 6'2.

[Editor Rob: with Bana I can see that Glenn has slight upward head tilt, bana has a slight downward head tilt. Both bana/dicaprio have very subtle head tilts almost the same (in caprio case he doesn't look like he's got a sideway lean though) but glenn can have that too.
Anyway, one eye is raised above the effective horizontal line. If you have their heads horizontal, their eyeline would look more like the lines drawn in the picture below, but of course to me its more obvious bana has a downward tilt than leo has, I would add an easy 1/2 inch (probably nearer 1) to that eyelevel line I drew for bana if he had his head tilted looking more neutral ahead.

what I'm jabbering about.
RobertJ said on 15/May/07
Photo proves it, no less than 6'2''.
glenn said on 15/May/07
yes,a hotel.he was very nice.during the hulk,he was a jerk i heard.i was surprised he was 6-2.i thought he was taller.
TheJerk said on 15/May/07
He looks just on 6-2 (maybe) if he stood straighter here. It is more evidence that Glenn is the height he claims though.
Editor Rob said on 15/May/07
I remember seeing chopper in 2001 and thinking that guy has a chance of being big, he did look tall in that film. This was a hotel you're outside?
wgileso said on 6/Apr/07
6'3 6'4 I have had the pleasure of meeting him same height regular shoes
Anonymous said on 19/Mar/07
I looked at the traoy premiere pics in teh Eric Bana entry of Yahoo pics. Angle of photos give different impressions but looking them all ove I have to say bana is around three inches taller than pitt. Of course i'm not sure how tall he is.
Dan said on 11/Mar/07
From what I have seen of him, I think he is exactly 3 inches taller than Pitt. So 6'2 seems likely-
Jordan said on 20/Dec/06
there is alot of evidince this guy could be 6'2.5--why 6'2.25 on here

[Editor Rob: the geezer said it, a little over 6ft 2...he could have said 6ft 2.5.

A little by my book is 1/4 an inch]
Jason said on 20/Nov/06
I can't see him any shorter than 6'1 3/4''.
Aussie Bloke said on 19/Nov/06
I agree with anonymous, he does appear around the same height as pitt in the premiere pics, and his hair gives the impression he is taller than what he actually is! I think he may be only 6ft-6ft1, that is of course in bair feet
Anonymous said on 1/Nov/06
In the premiere pics of troy he looked around the same height as pitt.
Miiiiiiighty said on 31/Oct/06
He never looks like a dwarf when crossing Lou Ferrigno in Hulk ( and he's wearing a bike helmet! ) ..
No way he's taller then 6'1
Jason said on 21/Oct/06
Weird. I thought he only looked around 6'2'' in Munich.
Dave said on 20/Oct/06
I'm surprised that Bana's six-two, in the movie Munich, he looked to be about six-five but then again he was probably wearing big shoes to make him fit his character.
dmeyer said on 12/Oct/06
in most premiere pic of troy pitt looks 3 inches smaller than bana so 5'11
dmeyer said on 12/Oct/06
188 189 make since he didnt look a full 3 inches on burrows also thats whi pitt in elevator looked only 2 inches shorter i think that even in lifts brad reach about 6'1.5 so looks about 6'0.5
john said on 4/Oct/06
I saw a pic of Bana next to Lou Ferigino and he was more than an inch shorter. I met Lou with my friend Jack who is 6'3" and they were the same height. I'd say Bana is closer to 6'1" in the pic next to 6'3" lou.
john said on 4/Oct/06
Funny, Bana dosen't look that tall to me.
Banzai Bob said on 19/Jul/06
He's definatly not under 6'2, maybe more than 6'3, maybe he's lying so he isn't too tall for some roles.
Jordan said on 25/Jun/06
He is noticably taller then 5'11 Brad Pitt and looks to be about 6'2 or 6'3. Not under 6'2 though.
Sadiq said on 6/Jun/06
well in my opinion, we shud cut an inch out of bana, jackman or whoevers height as in the pics they all woud be wearing shoes & cofeecakes u say u r 6 n wearin 3 inch shoes so jackman must b wearin sum shoes so hes 6'1 n half at max I m 184-185cm at night 12 am and in morning can go 2 range of 186-187cm n midday 186cm barefoot dat is so make sure wat u say
Coffeecakes said on 11/May/06
To me he has to at least be 6'3. I have seen some people mention that Hugh Jackman is actually 6'3 but says 6'2 so that he won't be labeled "too tall" for roles. You have Tyler Mane listed as 6'10 and he had a fight scene where he and Eric were wearig sandals, and Tyler did not look 8 inches taller. He didn't look that much taller in fact. This is a small clip, but if you watch the actual movie, Tyler isn't 8 inches taller, more like 6 or 5 inches.

ellen said on 8/May/06
Bana IS 6 foot 4 - Jackman IS 6 foot 3.5 - notice that all the actors who are tall are all 6 foot 2?? That is the height that publicists always use (that and 5'11" for the short ones) I am 6' even - met both of them and in high heels (3 inches) almost looked Jackman dead eye level and Bana was taller than me. If you look enough, you will find early press on both of these actors in Australia and it lists the heights.
Jason said on 30/Mar/06
Actually, Rob said Lou looked almost 6'3'' - he agreed with 189-190cm. Eric Bana does look 6'2'' to me, though. I believe Bana is slightly shorter than 6'2 1/2'' Hugh Jackman. Could Eric be slightly below 6'2''? POSSIBLY. I think the more likely explanation is that Lou was wearing large footware to appear taller against Eric than he is, though.
Elio said on 29/Mar/06
Now with Ferrigno re-graded to 6'3" ... does this mean Bana could be 6'2" or less? He appeared more than a inch shorter than Ferrigno in those photos. I don't know what to believe anymore.
Helen said on 23/Mar/06
Frank, see Troy again. You know that model who played his wife? She is 6ft. In the movie, he looks much taller than her
Mr. R said on 9/Feb/06
Here you go from the man's own mouth:

"Just a little over 6 foot 2". If I were a purist Rob, I would argue that you should bring him down to 6 foot 2 and a quarter, but I guess I'm not a purist!
(In some accounts he is 1.88 meters, in others 1.89 meters, and only once is he 1.90!)

[Editor Rob: thanks Mr R, I'd tried to find bana quoting his height but must have missed that :)

the 189cm is what he shall stay I think...6ft 2 and a 1/4, maybe ;-0]
Gotxo said on 2/Feb/06
I'm with Ed, the guy always looked massive.
In Munich he's by far the tall of all cast, he has like 4" on Geoffrey Rush.
In Black Hawk he look no less than Josh Harnett.
In Troy he has no less than 3-4" on Bloom.
One thing is that he's not 6'4", but he's no less than 6'2", a pretty well defined rank for him is 6'2"-6'3".
Frank P said on 2/Feb/06
Funny, I never saw him as over 6"0 to me. I'm thinking of Troy and he didn't hit me as that tall. I'll have to look more closely next time. After reading all these posts it makes sense though.

I think he's definitely 6ft2.5, he towers over a lot of characters in Munich, You can see the difference between him and Daiel Craig really well, who is no more than 5ft11 with boots on. In The Hulk, he was considerably taller than Josh Lucas, and he towered over Jennifer Connely, who's fairly tall at 5ft8 for a woman. In Troy he was way taller than Orlando Bloom, and the so called 6ft Brad Pitt. 6ft2.5 is right on for one of the best, not for long lesser known actors, in Hollywood.

If Lou Ferrigno is about 6'3 1/2" then Eric Bana (who I adore) is about 6'2", maybe less.

Here's a pic:

Bana is the only celeb I've actually stood next to (unless you count Jamie bout 5 years ago in Morocco.
Both in sandals, he definitely had 2 inches on me (I'm 6' and change) so I'd say 6'2.5" is dead on.

In 'Black Hawk Down' while they're in the lunch line, he has his head cocked to the side and he still only looks about a half an inch shorter than Josh Hartnett. And he's a hell of lot taller than Orlando Bloom in 'Troy'.

In Black Hawk Down, he looked pretty close to similar height as Hartnett to me. Definitely not a 1" to 2" difference.
Jason said on 11/Jan/06
I think he's 6'2''.

Damn, you think he's shorter then 6-2 Roboto?? Its possible but he looks 6-2 at least in every pic or movie Ive seen of him.
Mr Roboto said on 10/Jan/06
I think he's shorter than 6'2.5, more like 6'1.5", In "Black Hawk Down" in the food line scene you see him next to many people including Josh Hartnett (6'3") who looks at least 1-2" taller than him, and also about only 3-3.5" taller than the 5'10" Orlando Bloom..
I'm pretty sure they were all mandated to wear the exact same shoe in this film as well.

As for the chick in the photo linked right below me, it is Saffron Burrows and she is 6 ft tall.

That website isn't an official site, it is merely a fansite. As far as I know, he doesn't have an official website.
Bakane said on 18/Dec/05
I don't understand all these questions...
Because when you read this page on what seems to be his official site, It writes 6'2" so... He's 6'2" max. That's all. Sorry for the double post... And for the english (I'm french :p )

I say he is 6'3. In Chopper, he looked pretty damn huge and I have heard that Hugh Jackman is actually 6'3. I don't know, we never see their shoes in those pics and Eric seemed to be leaning in on Hugh. I don't think he's 6'4, but tops 6'3˝.

From Gawker Stalker.
"wednesday, november 23, lobby bar at l’ermitage in bev hills - saw eric “the hulk” bana, great looking, but tiny (are male celebrities bred in a lab? handsome, but precious moments size? does that read better on camera?) stayed through his second johnnie walker red, talking to some dork who looked like he’d just come in off the golf course."

Interesting. Although it seems to contradict every other existing evidence. Maybe just someone who looked a lot like him?

I do not know if this is an important clue to figure out his height but at least you now know his pant size.
sam said on 16/Sep/05
From that pic with Burrows, Bana, pitt, anniston etc, If Bana is 6"2.5 then Pitt looks over 6ft too haha, how can he be 5"11 judging by that pic? he must have huge shoes, or maybe he is 6ft plus. Or perhaps none of those stars are as tall as they say, Sean bean looks short
Anonymous said on 7/Sep/05
Is it not possible that Bana is a few centimeters more than the 189 that he gets listed here.
Every source points to the possibility that he is at least 6ft3 (some even say he is 6ft4 which I find quite believable)
Does anyone more than me find it att little bit strange that every tall actor "wants" or gets listed at 6ft2.
Why is 6ft2 so special?

[Editor Rob: he's no taller than hugh jackman.]

Jimbo said on 31/May/05
Well, saw him at our Hotel in Morocco 5 years ago, he was at the salad bar right next to me, didnt know who he was at the time - he had a solid 2inches on me so I think 6'2" and a bit is right. I'm 6ft exactly.

Goran, I have met Sam Elliot at the Paramount lot when he was shooting We Were Soldiers. He is about 6-1, which is 185 cm. The listing here for Bana is pretty close to correct.

[Editor Rob: Bana is not 6ft 4. He's no taller than Hugh Jackman really]
