His head always looked really small to me, is it? Am I crazy?

@Rory I agree you though I still think that Cavill could easily measure 6'0.75" without question in a good day.

Nevertheless, 6'0.5"-6'0.75" would be the likely range.

Edit: I wouldn't give Cavill the full 6'1", but he can look over it with most actors at times.

Of course, to claim your height in shoes is a lie. But is it "legit" to claim your barefoot morning height?
Editor Rob: James, without shoes is the great equaliser...everybody should give a height without shoes.

If you claim a shoe height, always mention it, so that others will understand your barefoot height.

If you gave a morning height, well, I think you should mention it, because the majority of people who get measured aren't getting measured first thing.
Rory said on 1/Dec/16
@Mark

Yes, with the likes of Hammer,Momoa etc at times he can look 6'1-2 but thats not always the case. In less flattering pictures of Henry with those guys he can look at most 6'0.5. The issue is of course if he looks 6'2 in some isolated pictures what exactly does that prove ? Surely no one is trying to argue he's that tall ? My view of Cavill has always been that he's a good solid 6'0.5. He'd measure 6'0.75 in the early afternoon, and may well never dip below the 184 mark even last thing at night. I guess then it depends on opinion, if you're someone who believes you should claim a height you never fall below then 6'0.5 is fine for Henry. If though you think you should claim w,e you measure in the afternoon then he'd be around 6'0.75 and could claim it. Someone that height though with star status,a good looking chap,muscular build and great posture will I'm sure be called big or tall regularly getting guessed as 6'1 or 6'2.

He doesn't look much taller than Chris Evans.

I'd say 6ft0.5 fits him well. He can sometimes look slightly taller, but that's to be expected--everyone can appear differently in different instances depending on a multitude of factors (e.g. he tends to maintain good posture).
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Nov/16
@Rory Keep in mind some pictures are deceiving at first. In person, it's a lot better since he gets the impression of how tall Cavill is. Ben Affleck is 6'2.25"-6'2.5", yet there isn't a full inch between him and Cavill. Jason Momoa is more or less 6'4" and Cavill doesn't even look that much different with him. Heck, Armie Hammer is listed 6'4.5" and Cavill even gives a 6'2" impression with him. Finally, Cavill gives another 6'2" impression with Michael Shannon.

Considering the fact that these guys are always towering over all of the casts including being equal to a solid 6'3" female with high heels, Cavill lowest is really 6'0.5".




@Celebheights 6'1.5" Indeed.
Rory said on 30/Nov/16
The trouble is who says that guy is 6'2 ? He claims about 6'2, okay you'd like to think he was honest but there's been 5'11 range guys who've claimed 6'2 in the past so you can't rely on that.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 29/Nov/16
There's no way that Henry Cavill is as low as this listing, unless that guy is as low as 6'0 3/4" (which I doubt) as I see 1/4" of an inch between them considering that he's actually standing up straighter than Henry Cavill is. That looks like the exact difference that's between my friend who is 186 CM and me (I'm 187 CM).
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 29/Nov/16
Here's the article:

Okay, there's less than an inch between them.
Pierre said on 27/Nov/16
He seem to be a little taller than Bill Nighy,who is listed 6"2';Bill is maybe shorter in reality and he can have lost a little height in 2003.Henry has maybe advantageous shoes.Henry is maybe 6"0.5' or smaller or taller than 6"0.5'.Lot of possibilities
Mark(5'9.25 said on 26/Nov/16
@Celebheights 6'1.5" Do you know where this article is? I would like to see it.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 26/Nov/16
Cavill did appear taller than Bill Nighy though Bill did slouch abit.

Click Here

Still, 6'0" 3/4 would suit better for Cavill.
Pierre said on 26/Nov/16
Jesse Eisenberg= for me and for others people who are writing comments at his page Jesse is probably a little under 5"7' in the picture next to Rob.In the picture he has a little advantage of shoes.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 25/Nov/16
Rob has met Jesse Eisenberg, and has him listed as 171 CM. Henry Cavill appears 5 1/2" inches taller than him, so 6'0 3/4" seems to be the most plausible.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 24/Nov/16
@Pierre Strong 5'11"? You do realize I would ask Rob to downgrade Chris Pine because he didn't look that much different from Gal Gadot just like Cavill did.

6'0.5"-6'0.75"

Strong 5"11'about 181 imo
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 23/Nov/16
I think that I read an article somewhere from a person who has met him describing him as being at least 6'1.5" with the person being 6'2". However, I noticed at least an inch between them.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 23/Nov/16
Man of Steel. However, I detested the movie Immortals.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 23/Nov/16
Rob, if you don't mind me asking, what is your favorite movie role of Henry Cavill?


I personally love his Superman in Man of Steel. Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition was fine too. I can't wait to see return in Justice League.
Editor Rob: Mark, I've not seen enough of him yet, only a couple of films he's been in.

It's a monumentally tough role to fill, playing Superman or Batman.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 22/Nov/16
Rob, there is a way you can meet Cavill though I'm not sure if you're open to plane traveling.

What do you think Rob?
Mark(5'9.25" said on 20/Nov/16
Under 6'0" is unlikely. 6'0.5" - 6'0.75" for Cavill.

@Pierre You, let's all downgrade Chris Pine to 5'11" and Bradley cooper to 5'11". Your guesses are nothing short of crap if you ask me.




Then we're downgrading Armie Hammer to just 6'3"

Stephen Amel is looking 6"0' next to Rob imo.By considering the picture Stephen/Henry,Henry is probably more a strong 5"11' like a 181 cm guy imo
Rory said on 19/Nov/16
I think 184 and 185 guesses are technically both right. I think he would be at or near 185 in the early afternoon, but he'd probably be 184 at night.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 18/Nov/16
Based off of how both Novak Djokovic and Henry Cavill stand with Will Smith, there'd be no more than an inch between them (if not less).
Mark(5'9.25 said on 18/Nov/16
It's not like Justin Timberlake claiming 6'1" and 6'2" while he's really 5'11.5".
Mark(5'9.25 said on 18/Nov/16
@James That's true. I can be wrong too. We never know unless we meet the guy in which case I plan to do so. The problem is, I need to keep track of where to meet Cavill at a certain comic con.
James said on 18/Nov/16
Mark(5'9.25") Take under consideration that Cavill is NEARER the camera in that pic, look at his right shoulder. With that advantage, he should look taller than Amell if he were 1.85. OK, he had a relaxed/bad neck posture, but with the camera advantadge I think he should look at least the same than Amell.

Mark don't worry 6' 0.75" is also a very rational guess. Maybe I am totally wrong and you are right, or vice versa. I have to admit that this is an interesting debate, but we are getting too passionate for a very little height difference. There is virtually no difference between 6' 0.5" and 6' 0.75".

At least we all agree that Cavill is a tall man.
sa344 said on 17/Nov/16
Mark, there is nothing wrong with you thinking he is 3/4 instead of 1/2

But most of us will agree he is only 184cm

It doesn't matter how much Henry straightens up, he is not going to gain anything there with Amell

It just cancels out 185cm for me

And if you go to Stephen Amells page, there are a ton of people that think Amell is shorter than 185cm!
Mark(5'9.25") said on 17/Nov/16
As much as most wouldn't agree with me, 6'0.75" is better for Cavill.
sa344 said on 17/Nov/16
Rob, why do my comments keep on getting deleted on multiple pages?

Is it some kind of error?


Editor Rob: I was altering the comment submission code. Checking it just now, it looks to have dropped a proportion of comments, so I have reverted back to the previous version.

If anybody didn't see their comment appear, apologies, please attempt again.
Mark(5"9.25") said on 15/Nov/16
Also, i didn't say Cavill is a clear 185 cm. I only agreed that Cavill would be nearer 185 cm, but not 184 cm flat. 6'0.75" for Henry Cavill and 6'1" is fine for Stephen Amell.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 15/Nov/16
@James the difference is rather little when you look carefully. Again, Cavill isn't standing straight while Stephen has his posture forced up. Do you even know how neck posture does affect your height?

Don't give me that "the difference is too big" crap. Cavill did a relaxed neck posture with Luke Evans and when he stood it up, he was taller than Evans. Stephen is standing up as tall as he can while Cavill is leaning on him.
James said on 15/Nov/16
@Mark(5'9.25") The difference is still too big. Cavill looks 6 ft with relaxed neck posture and 1.84 maximum with normal neck posture. Plus Cavill is nearer the camera, his left shoulder is nearer the camera angle than Amell. So Cavill has even advantadge in that sense. It seems like you never accept ANY evidence refuting the 1.85 claim for Cavill. Whether you like it or not, that pic refute the 1.85 guess for Cavill.

@Booker @sa344 I agree with you guys, he is 1.84.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Nov/16
@sa344 Clearly Taller? Well, If you payed attention more closely with the red arrows I pointed out, Cavill had a more relax neck posture whereas Stephen Amell was standing straight completely while Cavill was tilting his head more.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Nov/16
Same range as Jon Hamm or James Gandolfini, weak 6ft1
Booker said on 13/Nov/16
184 cm is right for him
sa344 said on 12/Nov/16
I don't think he is low as 6'0''

But I honestly don't think he is anything above 6'0.5''

I mean he is clearly shorter than Stephen Amell who is 185cm
Mark(5'9.25") said on 12/Nov/16
@James, Cavill had a loose neck posture with Stephen Amell. He wasn't standing straight while Stephen Amell was standing straight.

Oh, let's compare since you do love to compare.

Here's Stephen Amell with Jason momoa. Oh, Momoa is loosing height here and he still is much taller than Stephen.

Here's Cavill with Momoa. Cavill has the same posture as Momoa.

In that same picture with stephen smell and Henry Cavill, cavill is LOOOOOSSSSING more height and posture while stephen is standing STRAIGHT.


Sorry, but most of us including Rampage, Celebheights 6'1.5", S.J.H, and even joe### agree that 6'0.75" for Cavill.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 12/Nov/16
Seeing Cavill with Armie Hammer, Kellan Lutz, Jason Momoa, Ben Affleck, Elizabeth Debecki, and even Michael Shannon, this guy is more 6'0.75". 6'0.5" is too low.
Dmeyer said on 12/Nov/16
Seing him with Affleck and lutz or Costner the Guy is solid 184cm but no more
Mark(5'9.25") said on 12/Nov/16
@sa344 Nolan did have about the sameness thickness on his footwear compared to Cavill. You're assuming that Cavill is just 6'0" flat which is not the case.



Here is Cavill with Jason Momoa at the Justice League Comic Con.

By the way, Cavill just has regular footwear too in that same Comic Con.

James said on 11/Nov/16
According to the poll he is 1.84. The general opinion is clear: he is correctly listed as 1.84.

The reason why he looks tall is because he is tall. He is over 6 ft, 6' 0.5" is already a tall height.

Anyway, this picture with 1.85 Stepehen Amell REFUTE the 1.85 claim for Cavill:

Click Here

Looks 6 flat in this picture. He is not over 1.84 as we can see in the pic.
sa344 said on 11/Nov/16
There is no need to be puzzled with the Nolan picture

It just shows that Mr Cavill likes to wear Shoe Lifts on certain occasions

Also look at his posture, he is trying to look tall as he can 'busting a gut'

He definitely likes looking tall, and is certainly height concious
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 11/Nov/16
There are photos of him by Jamie Dornan who might be 5'11" based off of what I've seen, and he's easily 2" inches taller with Cavill's head tilted. I'm becoming more convinced that he's under-listed.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 11/Nov/16
He looks near 6'2" wit His Christopher Nolan!

Rob, I think 6'0.75" would be better for Cavill. Most of us agree that 6'0.75" would be better.

Not a full 6'1", but so close to it that he can pass for it at times.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 11/Nov/16
Why does he look more than two inches taller than Christopher Nolan in the same footwear, with Henry Cavill possibly losing a bit more height? That photo leaves me puzzled.
S.J.H said on 11/Nov/16
Cavill could be near 185cm but not flat 184cm. He needs an upgrade at 6'0.75 because 6'0.5 way too low

6'0.75" is more like it. Worse case, 6'0.5" at the lowest.

Looks 3 1/2" inches taller than 176 CM Tom Hardy:

Mark said on 9/Nov/16
Tom Hardy would measure similar to me if he stood straight. Still, I easily rule out just 6 feet flat for Cavill with most people.

Also, Cavill looks similar to 6'1.5" Elizabeth Debecki in this picture.

Click Here

We all know by now, Cavill head level is safely above Armie Hammer's eye level with equal footwear.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 8/Nov/16
He looked around 3 1/2" inches taller than Tom Hardy who could be 5'9 1/4" considering that Hardy usually slouches.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Nov/16
I'd rule out 6ft flat.
Mark said on 7/Nov/16
I could argue 6 feet flat, but I ruled it out without question when I watched Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, Man from Uncle and looked at several pictures of him with other actors. I find 6'0.5" - 6'0.75" to be more believable for Cavill's range.

It's really interesting because he never looks short with Ben Affleck, Elizabeth Debecki, Will Smith, Jason Momoa, Armie Hammer, Michael Shannon, and even several pictures with Cavill and Shaquille O'Neal.

A 6 feet flat wouldn't look that tall with those guys.
Mark said on 7/Nov/16
I agree with you Rob. I'd also rule out 6 ft flat easily for Cavill without question.

Edit: What I'm saying is that I'm having a hard time believing Cavill is just 6 feet flat let alone 5'11". Cavill's listing is 6'0.5", but he can really pull off the 6'0.75" mark at times.

Editor Rob: Mark, I think 6ft is probably the lowest you could argue (under it seems impossible), but for me 6ft 0.5 still seems a solid and believable range to estimate him at.

I would be surprised if he wasn't within a small fraction of that zone.

Face length: 9 3/4"
Eye level: At least 5" inches.

His face seems to be on the longer side.
Editor Rob: his eyelevel doesn't look huge to me, maybe 4.8-4.9 range is possible and a 9.5-9.75 range head.

Kevin costner had 2.25" cowboy boots with henry cavill. They're both 6'0.5 (costner shrink)
Mark said on 4/Nov/16
Rob, this question might have been asked, but would you easily rule out 6'0" flat for Cavill even if some claim he looks 5'11" which I seriously can't picture.
Editor Rob: here's Cavill with >Starfury Sean, the guy who runs the stafury conventions.

Sean claimed 5ft 10 on his imdb page! Ok, he's really in 173-4 range in person, but it gives an idea about Cavill being 6ft flat...I think I'd rule it out.
Mark said on 4/Nov/16
Also, we should downgrade Chris Pine to 5'11.5" if anyone thinks cavill 5'11.5" which is not the case. They were both the same height when we compare them with Gal gadot of who stood taller.

Cavill has always looked above 6'0" and near 6'1", more like 6'0.75"
Mark said on 4/Nov/16
@James you do realize that Kevin costner had cowboys shoes on and Cavill had regular dress shoes on those days. Also in the picture with at the Katie show, Cavill was bending his knees a lot while Costner was standing straight.

Click Here

These two are when Cavill was in his converse sneakers and had about the same worse posture with Costner, yet he still appears taller than costner.

Your guesses are nothing short of a joke since you aren't counting Costner wearing cowboy shoes and looked the same as Michael Shannon and Cavill was still bending his knees that day. I'm not saying you shouldn't guess, but always take in account for Footwear advantage and posture.

@Celebheights 6'1.5: I'm going with 6ft0¾(185cm). Can look almost 6ft1 or even the full 6ft1 more often than 6ft or just over 6ft. If he's only 6ft like a lot of people think he is, he wouldn't be looking close to Ben Affleck and insignificantly shorter than guys like Michael Shannon, Jason Momoa and even Armie Hammer. A 6ft guy just can't do that consistently

@Rampage Which do you think is more likely for Henry Cavill? 6'0 3/4" or 6'0 1/2"? He could appear 6'0" with bad posture, and 6'1 1/2" with good posture.
James said on 1/Nov/16
@Mark It depends on the celebrity. I think Iker Casillas is listed here at his morning/out of bed height. In my view he is 1.81 maximum at afternoon time.
Mark said on 1/Nov/16
In all seriousness, I do think that Cavill deserves a 6'0.75" listing. He doesn't dip under 6'0.5". The only time he does is when someone has the thicker heel on their footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/16

Cavill would be taller than Tatum due to confident posture.

184-184.5cm evening/night
James said on 24/Oct/16
@Mark Yeah I agree he's taller but not a big difference. Cavill didn't have a terrible neck posture but a normal/relaxed one. Take under consideration that he sometimes have a forced posture.
I agree with the listings of this site. 6' 0.25" for Lutz and 6' 0.5" for Cavill is a good listing to me.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 23/Oct/16
Rob, who would guess is taller, Henry Cavill or Channing Tatum? Henry Cavill appears taller to me, but that might be because the latter never stands up straight and is oddly proportioned for his height.
Editor Rob: really these guys are a toss up at time, I'd find it hard to really pick them apart.
Mark said on 21/Oct/16
@James, you're still dillusional of Cavill being taller than Lutz. You're also using a picture where Cavill has a terrible neck posture and stance.

Facts are facts, when Cavill decides to stand tall, he is taller than Kellan Lutz.

Looks shorter than 184 cm Kellan Lutz. But Lutz is slightly nearer the camera, so Cavill is not shorter than him. Still doesn't look 185 cm to me.

Here Cavill has exactly the same position and shoes than Lutz. They are identical, both 184 cm. I don't see 1 cm of difference. Cavill is even listed here slightly taller. Lutz is listed here as 6' 0.25" and Cavill as 6' 0.5". Fair enough.

He's not easy to judge this guy, he can look anywhere from 6ft flat up to 6'1.5. I reckon he's a guy who measures 6'0.5 at his very lowest but in the early afternoon measures 6'0.75.

Mark said on 12/Oct/16
@James, Again. You're using pictures that are extremely distorted to the point of inaccuracy. Also, you're comparing Will Smith with Henry Cavill who had LESS heel on his footwear than Will Smith who had a thicker heel on his footwear, both in the Dawn of Justice premiere and in the suicide squad premiere. Again, if you looked carefully at the red line, you'll see that Will Smith does have a thicker heel on his footwear than Cavill did.

Regardless of whether Cavill is near the camera or not, the picture isn't insanely distorted.

Cavill is 2 cm shorter than Smith

CONCLUSION:
Henry Cavill and Nadal= 183.5/184 cm
Will Smith= 185.5cm/186 cm
Djokovic= 187 cm

Based on the evidence, I would say 184 cm is a good listing.

In the pic you posted Cavill's RIGHT LEG is one metre nearer the camera than Smith's left leg. In other words, Cavill is nearer the camera than both Smith and Affleck, that's why he looks taller than them. It's only an optical illusion.

The pic that you posted is NOT valid. Look at Cavill's right leg. Cavill is nearer the camera than both Smith and Affleck. He looks even taller than Affleck but it's only an optical illusion because of his position nearer the camera.

Rob, in this video here, does Cavill look 185 cm or 186 cm with Kellan Lutz at 38:47 in the video below?

Click Here
Editor Rob: a short clip there, but yes he could appear briefly taller than Kellan.
Mark said on 30/Sep/16
6'0.5" is fine, but I do think that Cavill can be safely upgraded to 6'0.75".
Mark said on 30/Sep/16
Rob, is the voting for justifying the final answer for a celebrity's height?
Editor Rob: it's to show the overall average guess from visitors. Maybe over time it will help identify possible listings that are further from my guess and it might prompt me to look again.

Mark said on 21/Sep/16
Rob, what category would you put Cavill in? I personally think Cavill would fall in 'the confident person who is actually tall despite his supposedly short arms' category.

Rob, In the picture above and most pictures, could Cavill pass for being near 6'0".75" or being 6'0.5" at his worst?
Editor Rob: he can look a strong 6ft up to near 6ft 1 at times, but I put him as a big six footer, enough to give him 6ft 0.5
Mark said on 21/Sep/16
@James who told you that Taylor was taller than Cavill in heels? Because Cavill still was taller than Gal gadot even if she had heels.

She is even shorter than 182 cm Justin Timberlake with her usual giant heels:

I've seen photos of Henry Cavill at age 18-19, and he definitely looks taller now than he did then. His posture was wretched back then, so that might be a small part of it. However, I'm sure that he grew taller.
Mark said on 19/Sep/16
@Rampage I would put Cavill at 184/186 with the possibility or 184.5/186.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/16
184/185cm guy who can pull off 185/186cm look with good posture. In Superman gear at least 187/188cm.

5'11" is ridiculously too low for Cavill. 6'0.5"-6'0.75" is a better range. He had two inches on Russell Crowe, edged out Kellan Lutz, looked virtually the same with kevin costner and Stephen smell, stood well with armie hammer, look virtually the same with William smith in the suicide squad premiere.

Click Here

At 0:20 Cavill mentioned that his dad said that he started getting taller in his early twenties, losing his complete fat weight. I'm not sure about growing taller at 25, but because of the fat weight cavil had before, I could believe his reasons. Growth can still continue after your 18, and everyone's growth is much different from each other's growth.
TJE said on 18/Sep/16
Cavill is certainly a guy who grew after 18. He was no more than 18 when they shot The Count of Monte Cristo and he looked about 5'11 compared to Jim Caviezel and Guy Pearce.
Mark said on 15/Sep/16
Rob, I know Cavill clears 185 in the morning, but how tall is Cavill with the Superman Footwear? Both Morning and evening height with Superman footwear? I would bet 6'2" as an afternoon or morning height in Superman footwear.
Editor Rob: looking at him with Lex Luthor (Eisenberg) he actually didn't seem much taller.

Certainly not in Superman lifts, I think maybe he would measure 187cm at most in gear.
Mark said on 13/Sep/16
Again, it's not 183 as anyone would think. It's more 184-185 cm. Costner did have an edge on Cavill, but that's only because and ONLY because Costner had Cowboy boots on while Cavill had regular footwear in the man of steel premiere.
James said on 7/Sep/16
@Johno I think he can be considered a legit 184 cm dude, even if he can 183 cm part of the day.
Johno said on 5/Sep/16
As i said before, average Cavil at 6'0; Costner has an edge on him.
Mark said on 2/Sep/16
@James in the first picture, Cavill nor Costner were that much further away from each other. Also, Cavill was leaning on the wood and standing on one leg in the first photo, so please use your eyes correctly. Did I also mention that Cavill had neck slightly in the third photo with Costner? Yes I did. Again, Costner is overall taller than Cavill, but in the real world, it's difficult to see it with the naked eye.

This is having an obvious camera advantage.

Click Here

I will admit that Cavill has a camera advantage in the first photo. However, it's not like the picture is crazily distorted.
James said on 2/Sep/16

Again this pic refute the 185 cm claim for Cavill. Cavill is 184 cm, therefore a tall guy.
Mark said on 2/Sep/16
No, Cavill is more 184-185 cm. it's not close to barely 6 feet as you call. Cavill already edged out Kellan Lutz who Rob met and confirmed 6'0.25".
James said on 2/Sep/16
@Mark, very interesting pics. The first one you posted, Cavill is nearer the Camera and Costner in horrible posture. The second one, Costner has his legs extremely open, losing height with the posture. In the third one, I agree with you that Costner has a camera advantage, but the difference is too big to say that it is only the angle.

With regard to Will Smith, you said nothing about him being obviously shorter than Djokovic.
Mark said on 1/Sep/16
I will post the same picture with Cavill and Smith in the Suicide Squad Premiere.

Click Here

Again, Cavill isn't near the favored camera's angle. The camera angle is in FAVOR of Jason Momoa.

Cavill isn't that much shorter than Smith and looks virtually the same except with his eye level being slightly lower than Will Smith.
Mark said on 1/Sep/16
@James That picture you posted with Roger Federer and Will Smith makes your creditability pointless. The fact you just posted a picture of Will Smith having his legs spread out alot more and Federer having a better posture shows that you really don't know how heights work.

Also, you didn't read Celebheights 6'1.5" comment about meeting Will Smith being eye to eye with him exactly.
Mark said on 1/Sep/16
@James, you really have no clue how heights here can work.

I never said Cavill's real height was 186. I only said that it was his MORNING height. Rob lists these celebrities' heights as if it was their before bed height or afternoon height. The morning height, Cavill easily clears 185 cm the morning.

Oh and the fact that Will Smith had a TERRIBLE posture in that photo with Federer makes your creditibility pointless. Know what standard or terrible posture is before you actually post pictures.

Again, with not believing Cavill clears 185 cm in the morning.

The third picture with Cavill and Costner is when Costner is near the camera and Cavill has a disadvantage neck posture. Their levels are so close that it's hard to see who is really taller with the naked eye.

There is no way Will SMith is 187 cm. Check the celebheights page for him. Most users agree he is in the 185-186 cm range, no one claims he is 187 cm.

Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 31/Aug/16
I'm a legit 187 CM/6'1 1/2", and Will Smith and I were exactly eye to eye when I saw him years ago (I bet that he'd measure up at the same height as Matthew Fox who gave off the same impression) and we appeared to the same height according to a friend. 186 CM isn't completely impossible for him, but I wouldn't put my money on it over 187 CM.
Flyin said on 31/Aug/16
The more I see him in film the more I think this listing is slightly generous. Is 183 possible here, a flat 6'0 at night, 184 morning?.
Mark said on 30/Aug/16
James.. Will Smith is a legit 6'1.5". Do you really have to post the same darn picture Again? Will Smith had footwear advantage on Cavill on that day. Besides, here's another picture where Cavill edges out Smith who had terrible posture.

Click Here

it seems like you really want to think 184 cm is your answer. Cavill would clear 185 cm easily in the morning and would be 186 in the morning. You seem like you don't know how heights work. This cute LIST celebrities on their EVENING heights (these heights is if they were barefoot). Each celebrity wakes up taller than their listed height.

For example. I wake up at 177 cm and go to bed at 175.5 cm or 176 cm for my evening height. Will Smith measures 187 cm at night and would wake up as 189 cm for his morning height. Cavill would likely wake up measuring 186 cm and would measure 184 cm before bed.

Agree with Mark that we can't have have an ultimate answer to this issue just for seeing some online pictures. Whether he is 184 cm or 185 cm, it's something that we can debate eternally.
Mark said on 27/Aug/16
Don't worry. 6'0.5" can be Cavill's range. Like Celebheights 6'1.5" and I said, Cavill is someone who would easily measure 6'0.75" at times. I do consider 6'0.75" for Cavill, but it's not something I can put as a final answer for everything.

Another good reference for Cavill is him with Armie Hammer. Cavill is standing well with Armie Hammer. Btw, Armie Hammer has the footwear advantage in these pictures.

Another good reference in that photo is Jason Mamoa (who Rob has met and can confirm is around 6'4"). Henry Cavill and Will Smith really don't look that much shorter than him at all, and suggests than Henry Cavill is very close to being 6'1" (so 6'0 3/4" is probably a better listing).

I'd like to ask Rob if he's considering an upgrade to 6'0.75" for Cavill. He probably won't, but that's fine since its within reach.
Editor Rob: at the moment I feel 184 legit is a fair mark for him, but then at times he has pulled off the almost 6ft 0.75...maybe he's a man who doesn't drop under 184 much at all at his worst.
Mark said on 25/Aug/16
@Rory Cavill is standing further away from the camera. Regardless of the arm length, Cavill sometimes edges out or looks the same as Costner in some pictures. The arms makes Cavill look shorter, but Cavill hasn't looked under 6'0" at all with a lot of actors. He is least 184 cm or over it without footwear.
Rory said on 24/Aug/16

LoganNoll1996 said on 13/Aug/16
Character heights aren't always consistent, Sammy.It's like this in the comics, too. Starfire is listed as a towering 6 feet 4 inches in height. She should be close in height to Cyborg(6'6") and taller than Superman(6'3"). However, she's always drawn as being Dick Grayson's height(5'10") or shorter(5'4" - 5'6"). In some cases she's drawn as Wonder Woman's height(6'0") but this is only when she's in a comic with Wonder Woman or Donna Troy. If I remember correctly she was drawn as being 3 inches shorter than Superman(who she's supposed to be taller than) in one comic centered around the two of them.

Hopefully she's depicted as being 6'4" in the upcoming Rebirth series(barefoot height of course).

I do agree with Superman being too short in recent films. It just looks ridiculous due to him always being depicted as 6'3" range.
Tom B said on 12/Aug/16

Allie said on 8/Aug/16
Sammy, out of the core 7 members of the JL, Martian Manhunter and Cyborg arealways taller. They were always drawn taller or tall and the handbooks say the artists intend for them to be around 6'7 (I think Cyborg maybe cause of his costume but his character did play college football before he became a superhero).

Also current WW is 6'0, and her newest Rebirth version is 6'2-3 with heels. In fact, the previous two actors who portrayed WW, were both taller than 5'9-10 Gadot. Gale and Palicki were both 5'11ish. Actually I think the tallest actresses for Diana, no portrayed actress has ever been 6'0 or taller..

Sorry just a big DC fan too. Grew up reading the mid 2000s and New 52 comics haha and I read a guidebook But it's been ages since I've opened it.
Sammy Derrick said on 7/Aug/16
This is just my opinion as a DC fanboy/Superman fan.I think that Henry is short considering that Superman is one of the tallest,if not THE TALLEST member of the justice league.
Ben Affleck(Batman)- 6'3
Ray Fisher(Cyborg)- 6'3
Jason Momoa(Aquaman)- 6'4
And while most of the characters(Batman,Wonder woman,Cyborg,Aquaman)are having taller actors playing them,Superman keeps getting portrayed by shorter actors...

And now he has a TV counterpart exactly an inch shorter than him!
Tom B said on 30/Jul/16
To the people wondering whether he claims 6'0 or 6'1, he definitely claims 6'1. I've heard it from him before during Man of Steel interciews but in promotion for Batman vs Superman recently they asked what surprised him most about meeting Ben Affleck. Cavill said how tall Affleck was surprised him, and that being 6'1 he himself wasn't used to looking up at someone - or something like that. Sure the video is around somewhere. But def claims 6'1. He looks it to me, in the morning at the least.

@Celebheights 6'1.5, if he claims 6'0 ----- that would be a good average for him.

Henry admitted that he was only slightly over 6 feet when he admitted he was doing acting for not just the art but the money is fantastic.

Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 20/Jul/16
John Cena appears to be either a strong 184 CM or 185 CM in person (he definitely downplays his height), but I think that he would appear to be the same height as Henry Cavill if both stood up straight completely. I want to know if Henry Cavill claims to be 6'0" or 6'1"
Mark said on 19/Jul/16
Another legit 6'0.5" person is Chris Tucker (who I think is slightly above 6'1").



Rob, I don't know if you're reading this, but who would measure the tallest 6'0.5" of the 6'0.5"?

Henry Cavill (sometimes appears taller than Kellan Lutz and would be taller than Kellan Lutz. He came above Armie Hammer's eye level and can sometimes appear taller than Kevin Costner).
Kellan Lutz (sometimes appears taller than Cavill. Is taller than Robert Pattinson).
Chris Tucker (I saw him with Bradley Cooper and appears taller than him despite footwear disadvantage and disadvantage of posture. He came above Michael Jordan's eye level).
Chris Pine (he isn't under 6'0" by any means and looks taller than Jason and the looks the same with Kevin Costner).
John Cena (Can sometimes look taller and doesn't exaggerate his height. He isn't short next to the Undertaker, Randy Orton).
Editor Rob: Pine at times can look the more solid 184 guy, Tucker though is a mystery, sometimes he looks 6ft then up to 6ft 1.

I would put Cavill as very close to an even 6ft 1/2, Lutz isn't really much different though, they may well fall within a 1/4 inch range.
Mark said on 19/Jul/16
Wait a minute... Cavill is crossing his legs and slouching so much. Cooper has one kneel bent and has bigger foot wear in that same photo.

I notice that Cavill's eye level is still slightly higher than Cooper's eye level in that same photo. I'm going to say that Henry would give a taller impression than Cooper.
Mark said on 19/Jul/16
I'm sure Cavill would edge Cooper out considering that Cooper usually has larger footwear. Henry Cavill sometimes appears taller than Kellan Lutz while Bradley Cooper is noticeably shorter than Kellan Lutz.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jul/16
Bradley has bigger shoes. I think back to back they'd be close but maybe Cavill would have a slight edge
Johno said on 13/Jul/16
But eitherway, it would be quite interesting to see both Cavil and Cooper stand next to a legit 6'0.5 individual like Chris Pine, they are apparently meant to be the same height as him ...
Mark said on 11/Jul/16
In that photo, Cavill is actually crossing his legs, lowering himself much more and slouching more than Cooper.

I do think Cavill is taller if both stood up straight.

I don't believe Cavil is taller than Cooper.

Rob, how would you rate Cavill's Posture? I remember you saying that you did like Henry Cavill's posture.
Editor Rob: I don't know his personality, but his physical look and posture gives me a sense of a confident man.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 2/Jul/16
While I do believe that Henry Cavill is close to 6'1", I believe that while Henry Cavill is further away from the camera in the photos of him and Kellan Lutz, he's also standing between people which apparently improves posture. Therefore, it balanced out to a tie.
Mark said on 30/Jun/16
Alex, no. I believe Cavill is six feet and slightly above barefoot. Now I have the wingspan of a 6'0 person, yet I am actually 5'8.9" - 5'9.5". Judging people on frame is not the best idea until you actually measure that person.
Alex said on 30/Jun/16
Johno, Cavill doesn't look over 185-186 cm, IMHO can't be over 183 cm without shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/16
No more like 184-185cm barefoot and 187cm+ in shoes.

Alex, check him next to Eisenberg and he looks around 4.5-inches taller, pushing 5-inches.

@Rob has he ever claimed his height? Because generally actors playing a superhero character claim their height.

grizz said on 12/Jun/16
For all you 6'1 people-I was shocked to see he was in movie Count of Monte Cristo! He was 19 years old and seemed shockingly short next to 6'1 Jim Caviezel. Like 5'11. Is it possible that he hasn't reached his full height at 19?
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 10/Jun/16
Even though he doesn't look near 6'1" by Kellan Lutz, he does look it by Will Smith and Ben Affleck (who are their listed heights in person) so I can't argue that he's anything below what he's listed at.

Kellan Lutz is the same height as Ryan Lochte in about every photo (or slightly taller), and I don't know if I see Henry Cavill as being taller than Ryan Lochte. Henry Cavill would likely appear taller in a photo of the two, however.
Mark said on 22/May/16
Actually, now that I saw the pictures carefully, Cavill does actually edge out Lutz overall. If anyone would say Kellan edges out Henry in some photos, it's mainly because the pictures are in favor to the angle Kellan is standing. Again, Kellan is standing in the favor of the camera angle where Cavill is not close to the angle at all.

Johno, Don't automatically assume that Kellan is exactly the same height as Cavill. The reason why I chose that other picture where Cavill edges out Lutz is because they're both standing straight with neither of them on the favored angle of the camera.

How much height would you guess that Henry Cavill loses throughout the day? I'd wager 2 CM.
Editor Rob: that is likely
Johno said on 19/May/16
Yeh true Rob and i do see Lutz and Cavil very close in height but Lutz looked taller than Bradley Cooper when they met and i find it hard to believe Cavil would be taller than Bradley Cooper but i can reluctantly see them at the same height. I got a rough idea of Lutz's height range and i think he would average close to your listing of him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/May/16
No Cavill isn't at all. I think Cavill is near 6ft1.
Mark said on 18/May/16
Considering that Cavill appears taller with 6'0" and some actual 6'1" people along the fact that he holds well with 6'2.25" and 6'3" guys along with the fact that he comes above the eye level of a 6'4.5" despite the latter having footwear advantages, Cavill easily clears 6'1" in the morning and could measure 6'1.25" in the morning max.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 17/May/16
Rob, who do you think would measure taller? Kellan Lutz or Henry Cavill? Kellan Lutz appears to be at least the same height as Henry Cavill in my opinion.
Editor Rob: I think with height, there are fractions that can be accounted for and fractions which we can't account for.
What if one shrinks 1.1 inch, the other 0.7 inch...or one guy has been having a 3pm nap in his hotel.

For Lutz/Cavill I'd say they may well be within that 1/4 inch range, but overall I would say Henry had a better chance of 6ft 0.5 range than Lutz.
Johan said on 17/May/16
Cavill isn't insecure at all. He just has excellent posture which to me shows confidence . Ofc you can overdo that as well like Vin Diesel but in most cases I think its a positive thing.

Im sure if we met we would be very similar. 1cm is nothing, we also have similar build im just lacking the handsome face:)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/16
@Truth: Cooper thinks he's 6ft2, so I think the question is "who is more insecure?"

Cavill looks a big 6ft1 w/h Chris Evans (A fraction under 6ft most likely) and just under 6ft2 w/h Michael Shannon

@Celebheights 6'1.5 , it's Matt Bomer in your pic and he is listed at 5ft 11 here. But I agree that Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer are like twins though ;)
Truth said on 15/May/16
Who wants to be 6'1" more, Cavill or Cooper lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/May/16
Cavill looks 1in taller than Mark Strong!
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 13/May/16
I think that Kellan Lutz needs an upgrade to 6'0 1/2" at least. He's at worst tied with Henry Cavill.
Mark said on 13/May/16
Rob, do you think you could meet Cavill in person to determine his real height, or is 186/184 cm or 185/183 cm enough to determine how tall he really is?
Editor Rob: I'd love to, but I don't know if he'll ever do the kind of events I go to...
Mark said on 13/May/16
@Celebheights 6'1.5 The times Kellan appeared taller was when the camera lens were distorted.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 12/May/16
@Mark Henry Cavill appears taller than Kellan Lutz in some photos, just as Kellan Lutz edges him out in others. They're likely the same height.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 12/May/16
By Channing Tatum who could be a full 6'1":

They are the same height.
Mark said on 12/May/16
MrBoots A hair under 6'1" is the lowest he would measure. Slightly over 6'1" is the highest I can give him considering he virtually looks 6'2" with 6'3.5" Michael Shannon.

He's edges out Kellan Lutz, sometimes look taller than Kevin Costner when Costner isn't wearing Cowboys shoes. Cavil safely comes above Hammer eye level despite Armie having a footwear advantage.
MrBoots said on 10/May/16
If Jim Caviezel is 6'2", Cavill is just a hair under 6'1" then. They looked very close in height in the Count of Monte Cristo. He also looked to have a few inches on 5'10" Guy Pearce. I think his proportions make - shorter arms - make him look shorter than he is. Easily had a half in on Chris Evans when they co-presented at the Oscars.
Mark said on 8/May/16
I don't know why, but Henry stands slightly taller and edges 6'1.5" Mark Strong in this picture...

Click Here

Probably Mark Strong has terrible posture and Cavill has a footwear advantage.
Mark said on 8/May/16
I think 6'1.5" might be a bit too high for Cavill, but it's still possible. Full 6'1", Cavill clears easily and is likely 6'1.25" in the morning.

It's up to you, Rob. That's just how I see it.
Mark said on 5/May/16
Rob, do you mean ship like Cavill could shrink a full inch or do you mean like can clear a full 6'1" in the morning?
Editor Rob: I'm sure he is over 6ft 1 morning...a good chance he could be near 6ft 1.5 if he shrink an inch. But as I say, there are some who would shrink 1 inch, others 0.75, some 1.25, and some 0.5 inch...

the average though is more 0.75
Mark said on 3/May/16
Rob, I know I've been asking too much, but do you think Cavill can appear just 6'1" in the morning or could he look a fraction over 6'1" in the morning?
Editor Rob: really depends how much he shrinks, some guys like him could ship a full inch easily, others might be only 0.7 inch...
Mark said on 2/May/16
Plus, I only see a 1-2 inch difference between Cavill and Shannon. Shannon is listed as 6'3.5' here.
Mark said on 2/May/16
Crane, if that were true, he would not come above armie hammer's eye level which he does. armie has the footwear advantage yet Cavill comes above his eye level a lot.

186/184 cm would suit Cavill with a possible chance of 186.5/184.5 since he edges out Kellan Lutz and can sometimes look taller than Kevin Costner.
Crane said on 1/May/16
183 - 183.5 that what he looks in all of his movies.
Mark said on 29/Apr/16
I'm surprised Jourdan downgrades her height.
Mark said on 29/Apr/16
The only time Kevin Costner edged Henry Cavill out was when Costner was wearing Cowboys shoes while Henry was only wearing regular shoes.
Allie said on 28/Apr/16
She was wearing heels obviously. I don't know how big But considering how Jourdan gets listed as low as 5'10, I don't think someone 5'10 would look thst tall next to someone 6'1-2 in dress shoes probably assuming her heels aren't say Lady Gaga crazy.
Peter175 said on 28/Apr/16
Rob, what would be your guess for Zack Synder, the Director of BvS if you had to choose?
After looking through his pictures he looks to be the 5'7" he is listed as or maybe a bit like 171/172
Editor Rob: he pretty much looks in that 5ft 7 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/16
The only time I'd say he looked more like a 6ft flat guy is beside Kevin Costner who did edge him out. That pretty much invalidates 6ft1 for him. But then again he pulls it off easily with other actors who are taller or shorter...strange
Mark said on 26/Apr/16
Jourdan Dunn might have been wearing some serious lifts with Henry Cavill.
Allie said on 24/Apr/16
I'm actually stsrting to believe Jourdan Dunn's 6'0 claim after looking at pictures of her with Henry.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Apr/16
"Henry Cavill's height is 6ft 0in (184.785cm)"

I never said he was a full 6ft1, although I think he can look over it in pictures! He looks virtually 6ft2 w/h Michael Shannon and his shoes don't look suspicious at all. Looked over 1in taller than Luke Evans (listed 6ft but might be a bit less) and edged out Kellan Lutz (listed 6ft0). I think almost 187cm straight out of bed is very possible. He looks safely above 6ft flat and on his way to 6ft1, not barely 6ft like some people here think. 184-185cm is more likely than 183-184cm. There's not quite a full 2in between him and Affleck when they both stand at their tallest...
Johan said on 16/Apr/16
I would have said he maybe looks 6'0.25" there next to Kimmel but then we don't see the full shot. Kimmel is noticeably shorter with better posture and who knows what he is wearing. I would just keep him at 184cm. He holds up well next to a solid 6'2" guy.
Dmeyer said on 15/Apr/16
Rob looking at him with kimmel And Affleck And evens even considering footwear its hard to see him over 184cm And 183-183,5cm is very big possibility 184,5-185cm is very unlikely
Mark said on 14/Apr/16
186 cm / 184 cm seems more of a reasonable possibility.
BT said on 13/Apr/16
I'd say somewhere between E and D. Nearer 6'0.25 than 6'0.75.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Apr/16
I'd have gone with C with a remote chance of B.
Mark said on 10/Apr/16
187 cm? that's stretching abit too far. With Superman gear, he's that height or he could be 188 cm WITH Superman gear. Now 185 cm? Cavill clears that easily in the morning without the superman gear and can measure more 186 cm than 185 cm without the superman gear. 184 cm might actually be Cavill's lowest at night.

He's taller than Kellan Lutz on the picture I sent. The times Kellan looked taller is when the camera lens were distored and the camera angle was off by alot. With a more equal camera position and nearly equal posture, Henry is taller than Kellan. Cavill comes above Armie Hammer's eye level despite Hammer having a footwear advantage. Cavill is at most 1.5 inches shorter than Affleck and could be at an inch or less shorter than Affleck. There's no question that Cavill is taller than Luke Evans, Chris Evans, and Miles Teller.
Mark said on 10/Apr/16
187 might be abit too high for Cavill. However, He easily clears 185 cms in the morning. He's more like 186 cm / 184 cm like Rob stated.
Jame said on 10/Apr/16
Maybe his height is 183-184 cm in nighg
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/16
Rob, which of these would Henry get from you?

A) 187.5cm/185.5cm
B) 187cm/185cm
C) 186.5cm/184.5cm
D) 186cm/184cm
E) 185.5cm/183.5cm
Editor Rob: stick with D, chance of C..., I would say A-B are too high.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/16
He could be near 187cm out of bed...
Elias said on 8/Apr/16
Henry Cavill is not under 184.5 cm . He is anywhere between 184.5 cm - 187cm, and he looks 186 cm a lot
Dude said on 8/Apr/16
Cavill's 6'1, Affleck's 6'3
Dude said on 8/Apr/16

Azulon said on 8/Apr/16
he is 6 ft
Johno said on 8/Apr/16
He is only partially taller than Jimmy Kemmel, who himself is partially shorter than Jimmy Fallon.

In terms of proportions, Cavil along with Hugh Jackman have the best proportions and build and size, for any actor out there and ideal for most men.
Dejavu said on 7/Apr/16
If he is 5'11.5 we should be downgrading alot of actors. Russell Crowe will be 5'9 and Chris Evans probably 5'11 tops.
