How tall is Hugh Jackman ?

Hugh Jackman height: 6ft 2in (188 cm)

Australian actor best known for his role as The Wolverine in the X-Men series of movies. Other notable films he has starred in have been 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 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 once 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?"

So, Hugh is basically 6'2 in shoes in the picture above... You think Hugh had already lost a cm back in 2006 when he met Brandon Routh? Almost 10 years ago he already looked nothing over 6'1.5 with Brandon...
Andrea says on 11/Jan/15
Rob, how tall do you think Nicole is in the heels she's wearing in the photo above? She looks basically as tall as Hugh! Hugh must be at least 6'3 with shoes (since he IS a big 6'2), so she's what? 6'2-6'3?
[Editor Rob:
I believe she'd measure close to 184cm in those basic heels, but she is at Hugh's hairline at most, so that would be 1.5 inches less. Her own hairstyle looks close to an inch in fact.

And I'm still open to the possibility Hugh has lost a cm in last 10 years through excessive lifting and wear and tear. Similarly with Rock.
Tymmo says on 11/Jan/15
he looks 6'1'' to me
cole says on 10/Jan/15
@Rampage: Well for one Jackman, Reynolds and the others are wearing boots and is closer to the camera in a lot of them, one is shot from a lower point as well, Liev is wearing converse type footwear. They are also standing on asphalt, which can be uneven. I don't think Jackman would lose much more than Crowe in my pic.
trav says on 8/Jan/15
Nah he 6'2-6'3 no way Hugh is 5'10 whoever said that is ridiculous
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Jan/15
The angles are fine! Stop trying to muddy the waters.

BTW, Jackman is easily dropping height in that photo
cole says on 5/Jan/15
@Rampage: Terrible angle on a lot of those though. Better to use something like this: Click Here where he looks about 3 inches taller than 5'10.5 (at best) Russell Crowe.
Judd says on 4/Jan/15
I think he's 6'1.5-1.75": a bit shorter than a flat 6'2" Ben Affleck and as tall as Danny Huston

In some of those he has 1in+ on Reynolds and Schrieber
Joe says on 31/Dec/14
Hugh is definitely 6'2", in Swordfish, he has two inches on John Travolta. He is allegedly around 215 pounds. Just looking at him, I honestly thought he was better suited to portray Batman than Wolverine, but his Prestige co-star Christian Bale who is 6'0" nailed the character perfectly.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 15/Dec/14
Dejavu says on 10/Dec/14
He looked close to having 3 inches on Travolta

Yeah and in 2001 Travolta was probably still at least 6ft
Dejavu says on 10/Dec/14
He looked close to having 3 inches on Travolta.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 10/Dec/14
Looked a clear 6ft2-6ft3 in X-Men (2000), Swordfish and The Prestige.
trav says on 8/Dec/14
Why would someone said that Hugh is 5'10 that bull**** no way he he's 6'2-6'3
the shredder says on 8/Dec/14
We really only get mad when there's an element of truth, right?"

G ?
Andrea says on 7/Dec/14
Brandon Routh's pics are from 2006, Hugh was only 38 at that time... And he looks 6'1.5 tops!!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Dec/14
1st X-Men movie and Swordfish he could look 6ft2+
Mike says on 6/Dec/14
He was also treated for skin cancer on the nose again i'm glad he's ok!
Mike says on 6/Dec/14
I wonder if Hugh lost a fraction? In his early movies he could look a strong 6ft 2... Nowadays not so much.
[Editor Rob: this is what I'm wondering, has he lost anything through the last 10 years.]
cole says on 2/Dec/14
@Editor Rob: What's the hold-up on the downgrade?
Andrea says on 1/Dec/14
There are other pics of Brandon and Hugh and there is AT LEAST an inch between them! And what about Lebron James? He's a MEASURED 6'7.25 guy and is way taller than him, he looks a weak 6'1 with him at most! Hugh is simply not a legit 6'2, that's all!
andrew height says on 30/Nov/14
he looked like 185 in Prisoners next to actors like Jake Gyllengal and Paul Dano
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 30/Nov/14
He looks maybe a weak 6ft2 opposite Routh but he's bending his neck forward while Routh is upright...
joe says on 29/Nov/14
surely 6'1 (185-186)
Arch Stanton says on 22/Nov/14
Rob can you see 6'2" here with Routh? Click Here
[Editor Rob: maybe 6ft 1.5 range there]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Nov/14
I still think he can look up to 6ft2 in pictures.
Andrea says on 6/Nov/14
Arch, you've seen him with measured 6'7.25 Lebron James? Or with Brandon Routh? Do you honestly think he's 6'2 with them? Come on!
Dejavu says on 5/Nov/14
He looked 2 inches taller than Christian Bale. He had an inch over Michael Caine and Kevin Costner. I think he is a legit 6'2. Lowest you can argue is 6'1.75 but nothing under.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Nov/14
Dejauvu, in The Prestige, yeah?

Jackman also cleared Bale by 2in.
Dejavu says on 3/Nov/14
He is 6'2. He had a clear inch on 6'1 Michael Caine.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Nov/14
Prince William Andrea is close to a proper 6'3" and he was barely taller than Kidman in heels too!
Arch Stanton says on 2/Nov/14
Andrea says on 3/Oct/14
Arch, you got an idea of how tall a real 189 guy is? Brandon Routh is the perfect example of a big 189 guy and, btw, he looks at least an inch taller than Hugh... Have you seen him with a Lebron James? He does look under Lebron's nose, he doesn't even look 6'1 with him... Or if you are lazy, just look at the pic above: Nicole Kidman is no more than 6'1 in those small heels and Hugh looks barely taller, like around 6'2 in shoes! 6'2 is quite generous, IMO!
[Editor Rob: it is true that a weak 6ft 2 for Hugh might be a better shout, probably in the same range as Fox, they have held a 6ft 2 flat since the beginning of time here though!

but speaking of 189cm, I saw today again the 6ft 2.25 height challenger and he was standing in same footwear with me/jenny and he did seem a good example of reminding me a strong 6ft 2 from my eyes...]

He had an easy inch on Ross, but in thinking about it at the time I was basing it on Ross being 6'1.5 but he's now at 185 and some even claim he's 184. I still can't see him under 6'2" with Ross and he edges out Michael Caine, but I agree he can look 6'1" range a lot.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Nov/14
He edged out Michael Caine I thought.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Nov/14
Looks a proper 6'2" in The Prestige. Man, the way Scarlett Johansson looks at him in that film, that would be every man's dream!!

Practically nothing there between them
1.79 cm guy says on 27/Oct/14
One of the few guys who doesnt lie about his height. he always looks close to 6'3'' even in regular shoes. so he really is 6'2'' and he looks it. just look at how long his legs or upper body.
Silent_D says on 27/Oct/14
Solid 6 foot 2 guy.
mike says on 22/Oct/14
You really need to downgrade him to at least 6ft 1.75 Rob.
Judd says on 17/Oct/14
6'1.5" is spot on next to Ben Affleck (6'2")
Andrea says on 17/Oct/14
Take away the fact that footwear and ground are unknown, but saying he looks 6'1 or even 6'1.5, well this is not being objective! That'h how you look with 6'3 guys on here (and maybe more)...
Andrea says on 16/Oct/14
There's more difference between Hugh and Lebron than between you and Zach Levi (and that's supposed to be a 7 inch difference)...
Click Here
Plus Lebron is leaning a bit, if you trace a line you can see he's well Lebron's nose. If that's only 6 inches difference, how much you think Lebron measures from the top of the head to the nose? 5-5.5 inches range?
cole says on 16/Oct/14
He looked the same height as 6'1.25 Adrian Peterson. He could be 6'1.5, but even 6'1.75 seems generous.
Just please take him down from 6'2, he's been listed that for far too long...
Adolf says on 15/Oct/14
Looks shorter than Eric Bana
Andrea says on 14/Oct/14
I asked to be honest... He's much nearer the camera and still looks under his nose... I don't know how he can possibly look even 6'1.5 with him! It looks like he'd "be" 6', if he didn't have all that camera advantage! Of course i'm not saying he's that low but if he doesn't even look 6'1 with him! Lebron dwarfs him!!!
[Editor Rob: the difference I'd say was around 6 inches, but we have 2 big unknowns to really say anything with certainty - footwear and what type of ground they are on.]
Andrea says on 13/Oct/14
Rob, how tall does he look with Lebron James? Be honest...
[Editor Rob: I'd guess him in the 6ft 1-1.5 range with big lebron, although I don't know if they have similar footwear.]
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m says on 12/Oct/14
6ft 1.75in is spot on.
Andrea says on 11/Oct/14
Nothing, another guy who wont change just because he says 6'2...
Andrea says on 11/Oct/14
Rob, not a chance he's as tall as Lance Reddick, this guy is probably not over 6'1.5... Even 6'1.75 is still generous...
Andrea says on 10/Oct/14
Come on, Rob. Downgrade him to 6'1.5, he's not 6'2 and you know...
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1.75 is probably the best shout for him.]
184.3cm says on 5/Oct/14
Probably is rounding up a small fraction. I always saw him as a 187cm guy.
mike says on 5/Oct/14
6ft 2 is not a terrible listening but i don't agree he's over it maybe in the morning though.
187 night
189 morning
Andrea says on 4/Oct/14
Well, Rob, would you bet on him being taller than the plumber guy? I wouldn't at all and i probably would bet on the plumber, to be fair... And remember he's 186.6!
[Editor Rob: he might be similar]
jtm says on 3/Oct/14
i don't understand how charles barkely at 6'6 and jackman at 6'1 range is possible. barkely has a posture and footwear advantage and he still doesn't look over 4 inches taller than jackman.
Andrea says on 3/Oct/14
Arch, you got an idea of how tall a real 189 guy is? Brandon Routh is the perfect example of a big 189 guy and, btw, he looks at least an inch taller than Hugh...

Arch Stanton says on 3/Oct/14
Jackman did look 189 actually with Jonathan Ross. But I agree that often he looks a bit under 6'2" like he does with Russell Crowe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Oct/14
Well Jackman would at least be 189cm range in the morning. So the 6ft2-6ft3 claim has some validity.
mike says on 2/Oct/14
You're Welcome Rampage! Yeah i agree with you on Connery being 189 but 188 is fair no less though. Anyway about Hugh i'd put him at 6ft 1.75 lowest 6ft 1.5. And actually he is like Jon Hamm both 1-.5 inch apart from their claim...
Andrea says on 2/Oct/14
Everybody? Tell me who and i will reply with evidence... One thing, Hugh Jackman is not 6'2, then if you wanna believe that, you're free to do that :)
Arch Stanton says on 2/Oct/14
I spoke too soon on Andrea. Andrea you're downgrading everybody now hehe!!
Dejavu says on 1/Oct/14
He looks 6'2 legit next to 6'4.5-6'5 Barkley
Lillo thomas says on 1/Oct/14
Sorry Hugh Jackman but you never look 6'3 . To claim this height is silly. You never looked taller than 6'1 range. You should wear lifts to look 6'3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Oct/14
Thank you all!

@Mike, at least we can agree on Connery being a strong 6ft2. I think his claim was something like "I'm 6ft2/3" or words to that effect. I think he can look that at times but 6ft2 flat is fine aswell. Put it this way, he's not like Jon Hamm
James B says on 1/Oct/14
He looked an easy 6'2 compared to travolta
Sam says on 1/Oct/14
I think the 6'3" claims I've heard from strangers are from people seeing a celeb who is tall rather than shorter than expected and are looking up at the guy on a slanting sidewalk or something.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m says on 30/Sep/14
A big welcome back to Rampage(-_-_-)Clover!
Andrea says on 30/Sep/14
Another guy between 6'1 and 6'2 who enjoys rounding up to 6'3...
Jonathan says on 30/Sep/14

rampage is right, he claims to be 6'3, 2-3 times in this interview
mike says on 30/Sep/14
Welcome back Rampage! Still don't agree with you on Jackman being 188-189 legit 188-189ers are people like Sean Connery or Samuel L. Jackson. I never heard him claim 6ft 3 always been 6ft 2 but i think he did claim 6ft 2.5?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Sep/14
Could have sworn I heard him claim 6ft3 somewhere
James B says on 19/Sep/14
Jackman is a strong 6'1.5 so 6'1.75 is accurate
Andrea says on 18/Sep/14
To be fair, i'd be surprised if he were 6'2!

PCMR says on 13/Sep/14
I'd say 186cm barefoot in the evening and 188cm in shoes/morning height.
Tim says on 9/Sep/14
6-1.5 at best
184.9 on a bad day says on 29/Aug/14
186 is laughable the guy is in the 187.5- 188 range and I will not surprising if he's solid 188.
Dejavu says on 28/Aug/14
That was travolta in swordfish which was over 10 years ago.
MrHouse says on 27/Aug/14
prime example of a strong 186cm in barefeet - the 188cm claim is his height in dress shoes, flat sneakers etc.
cole says on 15/Aug/14
@Sam: Yeah 6'1.5 is more accurate. On that note of people being crap at estimating height: A couple years ago I was in a heated argument with two of my tallest friends (6'5 and 6'7 respectively), who both seriously thought I was shorter than one of the 5'7 measured girls in class... I'm 5'11... I mean that's not just bad estimating, it's borderline retarded behaviour. I don't know if this is always the case, but very tall people, in my experience are especially useless at estimating height. Unless of course they are estimating individuals of similar stature to their own. People anywhere between 5'7 and 6'0 on the other hand, might as well be the same height.
Realist says on 8/Aug/14
No more than 187, 190-91 Nicholas Hoult has him by an inch or more.
Sam says on 6/Aug/14
It's quite possible that Jackman is better listed at 6'1.5" although I wouldn't go any shorter than that, he's definitely not a strong 6'2"er. Seahawksfan has worn me down with his relentless campaign although I've heard people claim Jackman is "like 6'3"" who've seen in person, some people are crap at estimated heights.
James B says on 3/Aug/14
Travolta looked same height as david beckham
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 2/Aug/14
Nicholas Cage is taller than John Travolta however.
James B says on 22/Jul/14
Yeah he did look 6'2 1/2 with travolta
Dave618 says on 20/Jul/14
Just saw him stand quite close with Michael Fassbneder on The Graham Norton show, which we get here in America on BBC America. It looked like Hugh had an inch or so on Michael, maybe 2 inches. If Fassbender is a legit 5'11", I think Jackman is between 6'1" and 6'2". He, like me, probably is a legit 6'2" in the AM, barefoot, then loses a half inch or so during the day. So I'd say he has a legit claim to say he's 6'2", if he in does fact measure that at some point during the day.
Dejavu says on 14/Jul/14
Hugh Jackman made John Travolta look 5'11 a few years ago. He looks 6'2 on the dot and the lowest you can argue is 6'1.75 and nothing lower.
Guy says on 7/Jul/14
He looks between 185 and 186
SaveUsY2J says on 24/Jun/14
@Seahawksfan: They don't look identical here...

Click Here
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 22/Jun/14
There are photos that suggest that he's identical with Kevin Costner...
Dejavu says on 21/Jun/14
I think he is a legit 6'2. Nothing below or above. I thought he looked a clear inch above kevin costner.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 16/Jun/14
He's 3.5 inches shorter than Eli Manning, 1-2 CM taller than 6'1" Kevin Costner to maybe even identical, identical with 6'1 3/8"-6'1.5" measured Adrian Peterson in identical footwear (he might even be shorter), an inch shorter than 6'1.25" listed Gerard Butler and shorter than Ryan Reynolds (he looks taller than Ryan Reynolds when Ryan is slouching, but looks shorter in identical posture). He's barely taller than 5'9" Stan Lee as well. After looking at this, 186-187 CM is almost guaranteed in my opinion.
Sam says on 16/Jun/14
In certain shots of X Men: Days of Future Past, yeah Nicholas Hoult looks taller but others they look virtually the same. In the scene where they're walking into Cerebro (sp?) behind Charles, they're walking together and look very even.
Andrea says on 13/Jun/14
I doubt he's even a mm over 6'2... 6'1.5 is a good guess, he just doesnt look over that a lot of times, just look at him with Brandon Routh who is a legit 189 guy... He's at least an inch shorter!
James B says on 13/Jun/14
Mr. R says on 10/Jun/14
Hugh is a little over 6-2.

Every site needs a joker :)
[Editor Rob: oi, that's my job! Mr R is deadly serious...95% of the time ;)]
Mr. R says on 10/Jun/14
Hugh is a little over 6-2.
cole says on 8/Jun/14
Guys like Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Russell Crowe can look a little taller than their listed heights with Jackman if he's indeed 6'2. I'd say he mostly looks just 6'1.5, and is pretty much equal to 6'1.25 Adrian Peterson in that full body shot posted here. 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 would be within my estimate zone for him, 6'1.75 at most, can't see him as a legit 6'2 guy. Koncking off a half inch from this listing is something that should be on Rob's "to do list". Also, I think I've pointed this out before, but the picture of him and 5'10.5 Nicole Kidman in heels at the top of the page here isn't really helping his 6'2 claim too much either...

Henrik doesn't look like a 6'1" guy there by John McEnroe which almost cancels any chance out of Henrik being above his listing as he could six feet tall.

How much taller does Hugh Jackman stand compared to Rob?
ElRaloir says on 10/May/14
With Dolph Ziggler and Damien Sandow. The horizontal lines were made to be parallel to the ropes (which we know are actually horizontal) and to give an idea of heights. With footwear taken into consideration and taking Ziggler as 6'0" tall, this puts Jackman at 6'1.5" and Sandow at roughly 6'3" (give or take half an inch for both). Click Here
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 9/May/14
If you consider the hair on both and remove it, I'd say that there's about a 1.25-1.5" inch difference. He's probably 187 CM.
SaveUsY2J says on 9/May/14
Jackman's leaning in a bit and Sheamus is nearer the camera. If both of those factors were removed I'd see a solid inches' difference
Arch Stanton says on 9/May/14
I think he generally looks around this but Sacha Baron Cohen did have 2 inches on him is Les Miserables, but I suspect he's more 6'3.5".

With solid 6'7 Lebron James: Click Here
He is much closer to the camera but still gets dwarfed, so unless Lebron is wearing heels, i really doubt he's 6'2 ;)

actually that looks like a 6 inch difference so a weak 6'2 may be possible.
cole says on 28/Apr/14
He's probably rounding up a little with his 6'2 claim, he can look 186-187 cm range a lot.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 27/Apr/14
Another one by 6'1.25-6'1.5 Will Smith:

Will Smith looks no more than .25" inches shorter (Hugh Jackman's hair makes him look taller again), and he's slouching quite a bit. I don't think that Will Smith would be shorter with even posture, and I bet that Will Smith would be taller with even posture.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 27/Apr/14
The same height if you consider Hugh Jackman's hair advantage in that photo (Peterson is bald) and that Adrian Peterson has his head tilted slightly,.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 26/Apr/14
Also looks 2.5 inches shorter than Eli Manning whose about 6'3.75" (consider the hairlines), but towers over 5'10 1/4 Lesean McCoy in the same photo (it might be uneven ground):

Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 20/Apr/14
Yeah, 6'1.5" would be my bet. Despite that, he does have those moments where he actually does look above 6'2" which makes me wonder. I could see how some would think 6'2".
James B says on 17/Apr/14
Obviously 6'0 1/2 is impossible for jackman right rob? The lowest I would argue for Hugh is 6'1 but that's just my opinion.
[Editor Rob: you can argue 6ft 1.5 for him]
Andrea says on 17/Apr/14
With solid 6'7 Lebron James: Click Here
He is much closer to the camera but still gets dwarfed, so unless Lebron is wearing heels, i really doubt he's 6'2 ;)
James B says on 16/Apr/14
With James looks 6'0.5 a 5.5 inch difference is what I see in the photo.
[Editor Rob: with loose posture he can look not much more than 6ft, although mcAvoy might at times have thick boots with g-lifts® in them.]

To be fair with 6'3-6'4 sacha baron Cohen hugh did look around 6'2.

With the 5'7 guy hugh looks 6'1 max.

he is too short to think he is 6ft 2in
6ft 1in at best
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 5/Apr/14
Here he is by Shawn Levy who has one listing of 5'7" (Click Here for proof):

The footwear is completely visible as well (along with the postures).
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 5/Apr/14
He isn't much taller than 186 CM listed Gerard Butler:

In fact, he might be shorter (I'm considering the fact that Gerard Butler might look a bit taller because of hair, but it certainly wouldn't be that much of an advantage).
Sam says on 3/Apr/14
Someone who saw him once told me he thought he was 6'3", obviously not the case. Perhaps it was just seeing a celeb in NYC that wasn't shorter than they seemed on screen. Jackman strikes me a true 6'2" guy, nothing over, maybe 189-187 cm range morning to night.
James B says on 31/Mar/14
Doesn't look a legit 188cm to me
dejavu says on 31/Mar/14
I think he is a legit 188cm. 187 at the absolute minimum
vtec says on 26/Mar/14
shorter than gerard butler in pics
James B says on 12/Mar/14
Maybe it is because he wears thinner shoes but honestly he looks like a legit 6'1 guy not a 6'2 guy though. Certainly he gives a shorter impression in his movies than 6'2 actor like Tom Everett. Jackson to me looks around the same height as vinnie jones.
King says on 6/Feb/14
He has short face compared to Kidman.

geniunley looks close to 6'2.

188 is absolutely max for him. My guess is 187 cm.

Morning height: 6'2"
Afternoon height: 6'1.5-6'1.75"
Before going to sleep: 6'1.25"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Jan/14
Nearer 189cm than 187cm
Lenad is sexy says on 1/Jan/14
he's probably closer to 6'2 than 6'1.
Seahawksfan says on 31/Dec/13
Jim Carrey is about 6'1/6'1.25 as he's 1.75 inches shorter than 6'2.75/6'3 Will Ferrell.
Lenad is sexy says on 28/Dec/13
weak 6'2
Seahawksfan says on 25/Dec/13
Meh, he's taller than Obama so upgrade Jackman to 6'2.5.
Seahawksfan says on 25/Dec/13
By 6'1 Obama:

Okay, he has 1.5 inches on him there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Dec/13
6ft2 flat at his lowest
Arch Stanton says on 25/Dec/13
He does look about an inch shorter than Prince William in comparison to a heeled Kidman in the above photo.
Lenad is sexy says on 25/Dec/13
I still doubt he's over 6'2 but he's probably nearer 188 than 186
Jordan says on 23/Dec/13
Stop downgrading this guy. He's a legit 6'2", 6'1.75" at his lowest
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Dec/13
Doesn't dip under 188cm at night and most likely pushing 6ft3 upon waking.
He looks about 3in taller than 50 Cent and he's slouching with Reynolds.
spainmen says on 22/Dec/13
Rob,do you think ke might be 187 cm more than 6ft2?
Lenad is sexy says on 22/Dec/13
there are many people who say there are 6'2 and could be a fraction over or under that mark and I think Jackman is one of them. 188cm is probably his out of bed height!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Dec/13
In that picture

Hugh Jackman 6ft2.25(189cm)
50 Cent 5ft11.5(182cm)
Lenad is sexy says on 17/Dec/13
solid 187cm is my bet. I can buy a full 6'2 but not more
Seahawksfan says on 13/Dec/13

Lenad is sexy says on 13/Dec/13
I think he's a weak 6'2.
Seahawksfan says on 12/Dec/13
By six footer 50 Cent (he might be slightly under):

Click Here

He looks a bit more than one inch taller and 6'1.25 (it's difficult the top of 50 Cent's head in that photo). I seriously didn't think 50 Cent would meet Hugh Jackman.
Seahawksfan says on 12/Dec/13
I think it was taken when was in his thirties, and I don't think there's a footwear advantage. If anything, Jim Carrey is the type of person who doesn't intend to look tall through footwear and that's like one photo that he doesn't appear to have a hair advantage in or to be slouching in. If Jim Carrey is 6'2, then Dennis Quaid would be like 6'1.25 as well (which he's not). Here's another photo of him by Bradley Cooper who is listed at 184 CM (6'0.5):

Click Here

The difference is less than an inch there as Bradley Cooper appears to be just a hair under Hugh Jackman. He looks 6'1 there, but I really don't think that he's that height as he consistently appears 186-187 CM on screen and by Ryan Reynolds.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 9/Dec/13
He's a full 6ft2/188cm at the very least.
5\'11 says on 6/Dec/13
Why does Hugh Jackman look shorter than Jim Carrey in that image if he is really 6'1.5? 6'1 at best!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Dec/13
The man is 6ft2-6ft3 and 96kg of pure muscle.
Ryan Reynolds is 6ft1-6ft2 and a leaner 90kg.
Realist says on 3/Dec/13
He is 6'0.75-6'1.25.No more No less. Like every other actor he is increasing his height by an inch.
Linebacker28 says on 1/Dec/13
Solid 6'1.5" sounds right for me after seeing him in The Wolverine. Always looks strongly tall in his films, like Connery did during his Bond tenure. Likely both were the same height at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Nov/13
Well actually for years it was quite the opposite. The taller guys were passed over because they were " too intimidating' to be leading men. Look at Rock Hudson and Gregory Peck. Both of them downplayed their stature.

Really, the taller the better.
PLB says on 24/Nov/13
There was a study years ago in an industrial psychology journal that claimed that 6'2" was the optimum height for men. They adjusted the footwear of various subjects and sent them into job interviews. Taller or shorter than 6'2" hurt your chances at being hired.

There are lots of bogus studies of course, but this one seems plausible. I would venture that 6'2" is near optimum for male models and for male movie stars. I think casting directors want their male stars to look like Hugh Jackman, Ryan Rosling, Pierce Brosnan, or Richard Armitrage. The optimum male movie star is about 6''2" and not afraid to take his shirt off.
Seahawksfan says on 21/Nov/13
Who's taller, Jim Carrey (186 CM) or Hugh Jackman in this photo?

Click Here

Here he is with 5'11.5 Christian Bale:

Click Here

You can figure out who's taller. 187 CM is what I'd put my money on for his height.
Seahawksfan says on 21/Nov/13
Ryan Reynolds edges out Hugh Jackman here (hair doesn't count as height) and Ryan Reynolds is like a weak 6'2 if he is 6'2":

Click Here

Could this be proof that Hugh Jackman is not a full 6'2"? I'd give him 6'1.5-6'1.75. @Silent D Nichole Kidman has footwear advantage in that photo which is why she appears to be slightly taller near him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Nov/13
I stand by my 188-89cm. He opts for flatter shoes than Reynolds.

His range is from 6ft2-2.75in throughout the day.
kevin says on 12/Nov/13
my guess would be 6ft and 1.75in.
Gambit says on 12/Nov/13
I guess Jackman would be 187cm before bed, possible Rob ?
[Editor Rob: yeah it's possible he could dip a little bit below 188 at night.]
Silent d says on 21/Oct/13
Solid 6 foot 2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 16/Oct/13
Rob, was Jackman originally listed 6ft2.5 here?
Bakura says on 14/Oct/13
Sorry Rampage, but I have to ask, why do you, like almost everyone else on this site, believe everything Mr. R says? He has no proof whatsoever that he's met any of the people he claims to, and none of his estimates make any sense in light of what all other evidence tells us. There is no way NPH is 6'1, Ruffalo is 5'6, or Geoffrey Rush is sub-5'10 range, etc. My guess is he's a fraud who desperately wants attention and his finally found an outlet for it.

As for Jackman, though, I'd say a flat 6'2 is right for him.
Rusty says on 14/Oct/13
Funny how this guy used to be billed as 6'3" on the four letter site then on this site I first saw 6'2.5" then 6'2.25" and now 6'2" flat.
Dejavu says on 12/Oct/13
6'2 is fair. He could be a tiny tad under but definitely not under 187cm.
cole says on 8/Oct/13
Rob are you considering a slight downgrade for Jackman? He does look a little shorter than Ryan Reynolds. He also looks a bit more than just 3 cm shorter than Sacha Baron Choen imo.
Kyuss says on 5/Oct/13
Nicole must be around 6-2" in those heels,hugh is a tiny biy taller here 1" approx in those shoes,he must be very close to 6-2" flat.
Sam says on 3/Oct/13
I think it's a stretch to say it "doesnt mean anything" to see celebrities in person...of course, some people are less reliable than others. However, there's a lot of variables at play and I don't think griping over sightings you think are off an inch or a half inch is necessary. When people add or subtract half a foot off a celeb, then its time to gripe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Oct/13
He's a better judge than you, that's for sure
Balrog says on 3/Oct/13
Mr R also said that Chris Pine is 6'1" heading to 6'2" and Neil Patrick Harris is 6'1".

Jackman is a guy who wears thin shoes yeah but he doesn't look the full 6'2" most of the times a 6'1.5" listing would be perfect but 6'2" is possible aswell.
Brad says on 2/Oct/13
Nicole is 5'11". Jackman is 6'2". When looking at other photos people should remember that Jackman usually wears low profile shoes.

Lo sgozzatore says on 30/Sep/13
Seeing them in the flesh doesnt mean anything ;)
If you're a bad judge, that's just useless! Even Rob, sees them in person but i trust him. I know he's very precise. Even Dmeyer meets some of the celebrities and he's very precise too. Dont talk me about MR.R though... A guy who claims that Will Smith is close to 6'2 says it all ;) Rob met MC Gainey and he looked about 6'2 to him. Well, the same MC Gainey had one inch and change over Mr. Smith. So, someone's very bad at judging here, Rob or Mr.R... Guess what, i think that of MR.R ;)
As for Jackman, if you think he's a big 6'2 guy what would you guess Brandon Routh at? 6'3.5? And what about Lebron James? I guess 6'9 range? Naa, he might be 6'2 in the morning but in reality he's just between 6'1 and 6'2... And he just rounds up to 6'2!
Silent d says on 28/Sep/13
Vegas he doesn't look like a midget next to sacha baron cohan. Maybe a few cms. 188cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Sep/13
@Lo sgozzatore: Well at least he sees them in the flesh. Have you?

Look it's just my opinion that he's more of a strong 6ft2 than a weak one. He can look 187cm at times due to posture or camera angles. But other times he can appear 6ft3. There really isn't much between him and Liev Schrieber
Lo sgozzatore says on 20/Sep/13
If he's 188-189 as you say, Brandon Routh is a 6'3 and change guy, Nicole Kidman between 5'11 and 6', Lebron James taller than his 6'7.25 measurement,... I really dont care what MR.R saw because he also saw Will Smith at 6'2, which is ridicolous and then he saw guys like Mark Ruffalo at 5'6... He downgrades the short guys and upgrade the tall ones!
Chameleon says on 19/Sep/13
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 16/Sep/13
He's one of those tall guys who doesn't feel insecure about his height. I stand by 188-189cm and Reynolds is the exact opposite. He's a tall guy who wants that extra inch and chooses bigger shoes.

Mr. R thought he was 6ft2.5 and he usually sees these stars.
Lo sgozzatore says on 15/Sep/13
I'm not saying he's a weak 6'1. Just saying he looks max that next to Lebron James and even with Kidman up here. I dont think he's just that but i highly doubt he's a big 6'2 guy. This guy is at least, and i repeat, at least an inch under Brandon Routh, so my guess is 6'1.5... 6'2 yes, maybe, in the morning...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Sep/13
Weak 6ft1 for Jackman is beyond a joke.
That makes Christian Bale about 5ft10.5, Reynolds under 6ft1 aswell, Schrieber 6ft1.25 and Russell Crowe 5ft9 range.

Lo sgozzatore says on 6/Sep/13
Yeah, dmeyer Weak 6'1 which is exactly what he looks with Lebron James! Im not sure he's that short, even if he can look that sometimes! But he's not a big 6'2 for sure, probably between 6'1 and 2. 6'1.5 is my guess, he really doesnt look over that with guys like Brandon Routh
dmeyer says on 3/Sep/13
rob nicole is about 5 ft 10.5 the shoes she has give max 2.25 in so about 185cm shoes on jackamn looks max 187cm shoes on minus solid 2.5-3cm shoes weak 6 ft 1 ,nicole should look this big in 3.5 inchers
Ud191cm says on 2/Sep/13
No doubt he's 6'2 but look at his physique I mean damnn... He's a real solid steel.He shouldve been the superman if he wasn't in the wolverine.
kreyzig 6ft 3in says on 1/Sep/13
To me he looks fractionally taller than reynolds.So he is every bit of 6ft 2.
Connor 184cm says on 31/Aug/13
If hugh is 6ft 2 then nicole looks 6ft 0.5 with the heels shes wearing, id say 5ft 10.5 barefoot is a good shout for her.

Cole i agree! To be fair i wouldnt be surprised if he dipped below that mark! 186-187 is my guess. Have you seen him with Lebron James? He actually neither looks 6'1 next to him but we cant see their shoes and im giving him the benefit of doubt. 6'1.5 is closer than 6'2.
