Peak height was 6ft 2in (188 cm)
Australian actor best known for his role as The Wolverine in the X-Men series of movies. Other notable films include The Prestige, Les Miserables, Australia, Prisoners and Swordfish. The Van Helsing director Stephen Sommers described him as "six-foot-two and 210 pounds of solid steel"
, a height which Hugh himself has said numerous times: "I'm 6-foot-2, so I'm too tall to sit comfortably in most chairs."
. In his early career he mentioned that "Before I had any kind of acting profile I was encouraged to lie about my height. I was told to say I was about six foot [1.83m] tall".
In another interview with Good Housekeeping he once mentioned "If someone's going to spend their time saying, 'You're really not 6' 2"; you're 5' 10",' I'll tell them once, 'I am 6' 2".' Then, whatever you want to believe, it's up to you. Am I going to waste energy going, 'I'm so mad that this person says I'm 5' 10"?' We really only get mad when there's an element of truth, right?"
. In his early 20's he also said he weighed "170 pounds"
and was skin and bones.
