How tall is Hugh Jackman ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Hugh Jackman's height is 6ft 1.5in (187 cm)

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 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?"

He was a solid 6'2.
james says on 14/Apr/15
How could he loss a half inch and he's only 47? He's still a solid 6'2
James B says on 9/Apr/15
I thought when he made an appearence on WWE raw last year he looked 6'2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Apr/15
If anything, his training has probably helped him maintain his height.
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't say that, from all I've read (and this is in actual medical research) I think the risks are increased significantly.

From one paper:

"When comparing lumbar magnetic resonance images of 24 runners, 26 soccer players, 19 weight lifters, and 25 shooters, disc degeneration and bulging were most common among weight lifters; soccer players had similar changes in the L4-S1 discs"

"Maximal weight lifting was associated with greater degeneration throughout the entire lumbar spine, and soccer with degeneration in the lower lumbar region. No signs of accelerated disc degeneration were found in competitive runners".

I personally wouldn't recommend those who value height and back health to be lifting really heavy in their late 30's and 40's. Also I strongly recommend anybody who smokes to try quitting the habit as it is associated with increased risks of degeneration.]
Adolf says on 8/Apr/15
Yeah I agree Rampage. Rob should take off that peak height because its absurd.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Apr/15
Personally, I don't think he's lost any height at all. We don't know what's going on shoe-wise between those two. To me, he's a real 6ft2 guy who doesn't see the need to wear big shoes at events unlike Ryan Reynolds who I think may have some complex. It's my opinion

I do believe Liev is taller though
Judd says on 4/Apr/15
Rampage, no doubt that in that picture he does look even taller than a flat 6'2", however we don't know what kind of shoes the actors wear...
I think Liev Schreiber is at least 6'2.5" (with a good chance of being 6'2.75"), but from what we know it's also possible that Liev wore classical dress shoes while Jackman (being dressed like Luois XIV) a typical XVII century shoes like these: Click Here

from that picture, with similar shoes, Jackman does look a strong 6'3 (even 6'3.5"), but i still think that he was at peak 6'1.75" (or a flat 187 cms guy) and today has lost a really small fraction (less that 1/4 of inche IMO), considering his current age.
Nils says on 28/Mar/15

he was and still is 188 ore was ore still is 187 but on jimmy fallon he looks to be about 3 cm shorter than 191 hemsworth
Yaspaa says on 22/Mar/15
He only started getting bigger for the Wolverine part where he had special trainers. His musculature fluctuates between roles. There are former world strongest men competitors far older than him with no to little height loss. He's fit and healthy with a strong body that promotes height, he shouldn't be losing height until his 70s barring injury or illness.
cole says on 20/Mar/15
@berta: Not long ago he posted a video where he deadlifted nearly 400lbs: Click Here If that's not heavy lifting, I don't know what is. Deadlifts are especially hard on your back, and that's something he has done all his muscle building life, so it's bound to take it's toll when approaching 50. Either way, to get the amount of muscle mass he has had over the years, I assure you heavy lifting is quite required.

184.3cm says on 19/Mar/15
Joe193cm Do you mean an inch? Its not like Hugh has short hair either. I agree with Andrea, i was actually being generous because of his posture but he really looks max 6'1.5 there.
joe 193cm night says on 18/Mar/15
Rob, the faith of her hair Brandon pulse 1cm or more
Andrea says on 17/Mar/15
Yeah, 184.3... And i'd add he looks MAX 6'1.5 next to Brandon Routh! He does look an easy inch taller! I guess 187 is not totally impossible for a "peak" Hugh but 188 is, IMO!
berta says on 17/Mar/15
he cant have lost height at 46 he is a guy that is ripped not a weightlifter. its not heavy weight he lift. the weights he lift is just healty and probably just do the oposit from losing height. he will start lose height in 10-12 years maybe
184.3cm says on 17/Mar/15
He looks 6'1.5 with Brandon Routh..

Wow! I'd love to have seen the type talk fanboy garbage circulating his page back then.
joe 193cm night says on 15/Mar/15
look at the last images of him with Baradon the brandan of hair you the advantage of 1cm Hugh was 6'2 legitimateClick Here
Andrea says on 14/Mar/15
Well, i guess Rob used to list people in shoes then! You had G at 5'8, Brad at 6', Hugh at 6'2.5... Then he thought it was better to give barefoot heights! :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Mar/15
But, Rob you never had Pitt here at 6ft....or did you? Maybe over time you're opinion of Ryan Reynolds will change. I personally don't believe Jackman has lost height but I respect your opinions. Maybe in a few years you'll change your tune about Ryan Reynolds and believe that all along he wore bigger shoes than Hugh.

@Andrea, notice the brackets. I'm referring to the fact that once upon a time Hugh Jackman was listed here at 189cm and people would laugh at likes of you
[Editor Rob: Pitt I'm certain was 6ft for a period back in the early days.
Of course opinions/estimates can change. With an ever increasing amount of pages on the site, it can become harder over time to keep track. Sometimes it's just small adjustments here and there, better 'fits' if you understand.

It's always worth remembering though that changing a guess still doesn't change what a person gets measured at. We might assume the updated listing is nearer to what we think they measure, but none of us without measuring can say, it's a probable/best guess scenario. That's why meeting actors and using them as references can help with the ongoing celebrity height puzzles.]
slothee says on 12/Mar/15
At age 46 he's lost half an inch?! That seems a bit much height to lose at his age.
[Editor Rob: could be worse, there's a well known Bigfoot Anthropologist who lost 1.3 inches by age 40!

He then got hold of a special potion called 'Yetiurina' which made him taller again!]
Andrea says on 12/Mar/15
Lol, 189 at least? Unless Brandon Routh is 6'3.5 it's hard to believe he "was" 6'2.5, even 10 years ago! The only way he could have been 189 is in shoes!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Mar/15
[Editor Rob: harder to say, but you couldn't rule out a tad shy of 6ft 2 10 years ago]

You definitely weren't saying that 10 years ago...during the "189cm at least" days of Jackman when no one was arguing 6ft2 and below but instead arguing 6ft3!
[Editor Rob: I think in 2004 I could believe Brad pitt as 6ft, but a lot of opinions change over time.]
TJE says on 11/Mar/15
He was always and still is 6'1.75.
Andrea says on 11/Mar/15
"Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 10/Mar/15
Early 2000's he looked 6ft2-3"
Rob's listings are not in shoes, but barefoot :)

Early 2000's he looked 6ft2-3

He's only 47!

I'd have waited a bit.
Jonas says on 10/Mar/15
I don't see 8 centimeters difference between hugh jackman (listed here at 6'2") and david beckham (5'11"), even considering that hugh jackman is at a worse posture that david beckham

Click Here

Either one of them is not listed correctly
184.3cm says on 9/Mar/15
6'1.5 is good for Hugh although i think maybe even a fraction less but small fraction nothing big. Beckham was measured at 5'10.5 during his run in the Man U youth team so it is possible he grew a bit since he was only 17 years old but 5'11 flat is really max i would give him. Just like his own claim.
vince somerhalder says on 9/Mar/15
hugh jackman is a legit 6'2. Patel is slightly shorter
Arch Stanton says on 8/Mar/15
5'11 RANGE means anything between 5'11 and 6 ft Lorne!! 182 is 5'11 range!
Jacob says on 8/Mar/15
Never really struck me as a full 6'2" guy, even in his prime. Always seemed 187-186 to me. Does anyone have any good photos proving he was once a legit 6'2"?
Tommo says on 8/Mar/15
Video of him next to Jimmy Fallon and Chris Hemsworth on youtube, looks about this next to Hemsworth.
Andrea says on 8/Mar/15
Well, Arch, i meant 5'11 flat... I think 5'11 is a good listing for Beckham, but i wouldn't go over! Just look at him next to MEASURED Zlatan Ibrahimovic, he actually can look shorter than 5'11 in some photos with him...
Dejavu says on 7/Mar/15
He looked at least the same next to Patel. Maybe he is a bit under 6'2 today but there is without a doubt that he was a legit 6'2.
Lorne says on 7/Mar/15
I hate to nitpick, but 5'11 range is 180-181. 182 is closer to 6 feet. I would consider 182 weak 6ft range, like Steve Martin or maybe Jensen, than I would ever use to describe BP!
Kourosh says on 7/Mar/15
hes only 46 years old. Its impossible to lose 1 cm at this age. Hes way freaking too young for listing height pick or shrinking.

Hes still 6'2.
Arch Stanton says on 6/Mar/15
Andrea says on 1/Mar/15
Lol, Beckham has never looked 182, Arch! If anything, he can look just 5'10 at times next to Zlatan Ibrahimovic... But 5'11 range is what he generally looks! Just don't try to upgrade the others to support a 6'2 listing for Hugh :)

182 is 5'11 range!!
Lorne??? says on 4/Mar/15
I could buy Patel at 6'2, but remember that he has excellent posture, while Daniels has gotten loader over the years. I still think Faniels could pull out a little extra on a stadiometer.
Bishop says on 4/Mar/15
Tbh, I don't think he's lost any height. He's in his what late 40s? Maybe he lost a small fraction but he always looked a weak 6'2" to me....
Shamrock says on 4/Mar/15
Lol 5'10.5? Dev Patel 6'0?

Also, that camera angle favours Patel and he's standing straighter than Jackman.
Silent_D says on 4/Mar/15
Solid 6 foot 2 nut he didn't look much taller than 182cm neil patrick harris and beckham.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Mar/15
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" says on 3/Mar/15
I agree with the downgrade. However, I would also upgrade Dev Patel to a full 6'2". He's clearly not shorter than Jeff Daniels here:

That I can agree on

No more than 5'10.5 next to dev patel who I believe is six foot barefoot, but looks taller because he's skinny.
Judd says on 3/Mar/15
Rob, i agree that he's 6'1.5" today but he's 47 years old! He's not even in his 50's!
How can we talk about "peak height"?
Any chance he was never taller than 6'1.75"?
Andrea says on 3/Mar/15
Rob, you think he already lost height in 2006? He didn't look over 6'1.5 next to Brandon Routh... Now he looks not much over 6'1 flat! 187 on a good day is possible, though, certainly not what you'd call a big 6'2 guy!
[Editor Rob: harder to say, but you couldn't rule out a tad shy of 6ft 2 10 years ago.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Mar/15
That's not entirely true

rob you think HJ might be 6'1.75" (or even 6'1.5")? Look at him with Bradley Cooper (6'0.5"):

[Editor Rob: from all I've seen I think around 6ft 1.5 last 2 years is more likely.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Mar/15
Oh come on! Just because he does some heavy lifting doesn't mean anything
[Editor Rob: prolonged and repetitive heavy lifting, either through weight or job related will put excessive stresses on the spinal structure, leading to far greater chance of damage.

There's enough for me to see him as having lost height compared to early 30's.]
Andrea says on 1/Mar/15
Lol, Beckham has never looked 182, Arch! If anything, he can look just 5'10 at times next to Zlatan Ibrahimovic... But 5'11 range is what he generally looks! Just don't try to upgrade the others to support a 6'2 listing for Hugh :)
Arch Stanton says on 1/Mar/15
He's looking good on the Graham Norton show though, he's been looking pretty ill/rough the last few years but looks to be back to his handsome best at the moment aside from looking a bit shorter!
Arch Stanton says on 1/Mar/15
Beckham can pull off looking 182 at times though...
Arch Stanton says on 1/Mar/15
He definitely looks shorter to me than he did 10-15 years ago. At times he could even look like 189 but now he consistently looks in 6'1" range to me. He's had a fair few health problems, and as you say with all the wear and tear of training and roles not impossible he's already lost a bit.
[Editor Rob: the fella has played that Wolverine role in numerous movies. I think when you are lifting big weights consistantly Like Him in your late 30's and early 40's, the discs are under a lot of intensive loading stresses.

He's still managing 400 pound dead lifts at 46 which is good going!
]
Lorne says on 28/Feb/15
Half inch t 46 seems a bit incredulous... A fraction is certainly possible, but he seems to be in pretty good shape, to say the least.

I'll go 187cm peak, maybe a fraction less now.
Andrea says on 27/Feb/15
In the first picture he looks around an inch taller than Beckham, in the second one 1.5 inches, maybe 2 if Hugh stood "straight"... And this is not a surprise at all, this is just a realization (like when Rob met big G) that Hugh is noway near 6'2! 6'1.5 is the most i'd argue today and i wouldn't be surprised at all if he was closer to 6'1 flat! He's 46 today, so yeah, he might have lost a fraction due to his intensive trainings, but i doubt it's more than a cm! He's never been 6'2, he already looked not over 6'1.5 10 years ago next to Brandon Routh, so the listing should be more 6'1.5, maybe 6'1.75 on a good day at peak and 6'1-6'1.25 today! But Rob always tries to be conservative so he goes with "6'2 peak"...
184.3cm says on 27/Feb/15
Looks more this nowadays. Certainly next to Affleck didnt look more than 6'1.5 if Ben is 6'2 like many claim.
Arch Stanton says on 27/Feb/15
Rob did you see the pics with Beckham? Click Here Something doesn't look right! Difficult to see 8 cm between them! It is time for a downgrade for Hugh? He's been looking 6'1" range a lot in recent times.
[Editor Rob: I don't know how great Hugh stands at times, but 6ft 1.5 today seems more likelier. I think although now late 40's, his roles, especially the training for playing his wolverine character, might have at least started to take a fraction off him.]
James says on 26/Feb/15
He looked 6'2-6'3 range compared to john travolta in swordfish
Rusty 190cm says on 23/Feb/15
I used to see 6'3" listings for this guy early in early 2000s
Donna says on 22/Feb/15
I will say that I met Hugh Jackman a few times when he did theater, and I immediately thought, "Wow, he's tall!" I'm short - around 5'6" and was wearing heels and in the pictures he took with me, he definitely looked at least half a foot taller, probably more. Maybe 8 inches taller. I think 6'2" seems accurate - in fact, I'd argue that in person he looked taller than that. He just has a natural tendency to bend his head and legs slightly to look shorter because he seems a little embarrassed by his height. I definitely noticed this in person.
Donna says on 22/Feb/15
Why are people really debating what height Hugh Jackman is? Is it that important. I will say that I met him a few times when he did theater, and I immediately thought, "Wow, he's tall!" I'm short - around 5'6" and in the pictures he took with me, he definitely looked at least half a foot taller, probably more. I think 6'2" seems accurate - in fact, I'd argue that in person he looked taller than that.

Andrea says on 21/Feb/15
Well, there's some tilt in that photo which favours Beckham a little... But, yeah, Hugh is 2 inches taller at most which actually is not a surprise at all! The more i see him the more he can look 6'1-6'1.5! Always a chance he's lost a cm (at worst) so maybe he could have been 6'1.5-6'1.75 when younger and more 6'1-6'1.5 now! 6'2 is a very optimistic listing!
Tom says on 19/Feb/15
Anyone care to explain this. 2 inches max between Hugh and Beckham just look at the eye levels and Becks is leaning more.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Feb/15
I see it the other way around. Jackman wears smaller heeled shoes and may appear shorter while Reynolds will go for the bigger heels.
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" says on 16/Feb/15
Ryan Reynolds: 6'2.25" (he's 1 inch shorter than Snoop Dogg, but one could use Jeff Daniels as a case of him not being that much past 6'2" since Jeff Daniels did have half an inch on him)
Hugh Jackman: 6'1.75" (he's shorter than Ryan Reynolds, and he's exactly the same as Adrian Peterson who was measured at 6'1.5" at the combine. He strikes me as being the same as Tom Hiddleston, who you have as 6'1.75"). Ryan Reynolds is slouching in the photos where he appears taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 10/Feb/15
This guy is probably near 6ft3 out of bed
joe 193cm night says on 10/Feb/15
peak 6'2 (188)
Andrea says on 10/Feb/15
Yeah, a small lost is not totally impossible for a guy like him, but we're talking about what, Rob? Half an inch? Maybe a quarter inch? And when do you think he "started" losing height? You can see him at only 38 next to Brandon Routh and he already didn't look over 6'1.5 there... So, he's what today? 6'1-6'1.25?
[Editor Rob: in last 5 years a fraction. Of course he could have been a little under 6ft 2, not everyone will fall bang on equal inches, for every guy who does there's one who will be on the 3/4 or 1/4 or 1/2.]
grizz says on 5/Feb/15
Rob, I think it's time to downgrade him to 187. He sure was a full 6ft2 guy,but not anymore. Seeing him with Fallon made that all much easier to conclude.
[Editor Rob: it is a possibility, even though 46 years old, I think his physical roles and what I'd say was excessive lifting could have potentially contributed a cm loss.]
Penguinboy25 says on 5/Feb/15
Just so you know not everyone shrinks the same amount daily.
Andrea says on 31/Jan/15
Well, 6'1.5 morning is a bit hard to believe because that would put him under 6'1 at his low. At the same time, 6'2 seems a stretch for sure, after seeing him with many people. I could buy 6'1.5, maybe 6'1.75 on a very very good day...
Arch Stanton says on 31/Jan/15
6'1.5 morning? I'd say it's a safe bet he clears 6'2" out of bed. Cohen for me is taller than a flat 6'3".
Judd says on 31/Jan/15
No penguin, I do not agree! 6'0.75-1" (so likely 6'1.5" in the morning is quite unbelievable)...
Jackman has (averagely) 2" on Famke Janssen, who I am sure is a bit taller than a flat 5'11"...
Rob has listed famke at 5'11.5" (so in the 181,2-181,6 cms range) but personally I think she's a flat 182 cms girl (so in the 181,8-182,2 cms range) and 5'11.75" would be her perfect listing!
In this case Jackman is in the 187's zone, so 6'1.5-1.75" is fair!
I don't buy anything under 6'1.5" for him!
penguinboy25 says on 30/Jan/15
No way is he 6'2. Looks significant shorter than Sacha Baron cohen and Cohen is leaning in to lose height in the pictures. I bet this guy is 6'1.5 best in the morning.
Andrea says on 12/Jan/15
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.

he looks 6'1''½ 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

The angles are fine! Stop trying to muddy the waters.

BTW, Jackman is easily dropping height in that photo

@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.

In some of those he has 1in+ on Reynolds and Schrieber

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

Brandon Routh's pics are from 2006, Hugh was only 38 at that time... And he looks 6'1.5 tops!!!

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!

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 6ft2½ 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 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

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!

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
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

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.

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...

Dmeyer says on 17/May/14
6ft1.5 no more
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
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".

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.
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.

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
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.

He looks about 3in taller than 50 Cent and he's slouching with Reynolds.

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!

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.
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.

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!

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
186cm's
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.

Nonsense
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

Lo sgozzatore says on 23/Aug/13
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.
cole says on 21/Aug/13
I would say he's not quite 6'2. 187 cm range is a better shout imo.

Photographic proof above that Kidman is hitting 6'2 in heels. She barely looked shorter than Prince William!
Arch Stanton says on 18/Aug/13
Rob have you seen Les Miserables? Jackman looks 2 inches shorter than Sacha Baron Cohen.
[Editor Rob: not seen it yet, sash can appear taller than 6ft 3 at times]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Jul/13
He looked 6ft3 in Swordfish with Travolta (who might've been 184cm?).
So, I think 188cm is his lowest and 189cm is a possibility.

He'd have the edge over Reynolds (who might wear lifts) if they were both in normal heeled shoes.
Lorne says on 28/Jul/13
Let me reiterate I think he's legit. 6'2... Just saying I'd go with 187cm b4 I'd say 189. And to everyone looking at this photo: it is outside, that is skewing the difference on Kidman's favor. Man is he trick, though; With 182cm range Famke Jennsen, looks AT LEAST 188cm, with John Travolta can look /89cm, yet with guys like Routh, CAN look 187cm, looks 187-188cm with Liv S and Cohen, looks near enough 6'2 with Bale,(I consider Bale 5ft11.75) and in the above photo, is 187cm range, but it's outside... He is a tough one, but since he wears flat Adidas style a lot, and still looks 6'2 range most often, I'd have to say 188cm is fair...
Lorne says on 28/Jul/13
The above pic demonstrates why outside pics can be unreliable. As for his height, 187-188cm range, 6'2 is a good shout. Remember he wears flat shoes a lot, which can make him look a tad smaller than he is, though I could see him 6ft1.75in evening. He's tricky, looks easy 189cm in boots, other times he just doesn't look a big 6'2 guy. So this listing is fine, but they're is a better chance he's 6ft1.75 than 6ft2.25.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Jul/13

The heels look 2 iches in the above photo. Jackman only looks 6 foot 1 in the above photo but he is leaning in. I remember when he was next to elle mapherson in 4 inch heels and she was a little taller than him. 188cm.
Kyuss says on 23/Jun/13
ABC logic here with a 5-10.5 nicole is shes a min of 6.0.5" in those heels {2-3"} So hugh looks 1" taller so barefoot id have him at 6-1.5" he looks 6-2.5" in shoes here imo.
Sawyer03 says on 21/Jun/13
If that guy is not 6.2 then nobody is, some people in this forum are crazy to say he is just 6.0, come on look how big the guy looks in that picture, then look at a picture of Nicolaj Coster-Waldau or even Ryan Reynolds.
Lo sgozzatore says on 21/Jun/13
Yeah, big chance he's not over 6'1.5. Just look at him with Brandon Routh, he's at least one inch shorter...
cole says on 19/Jun/13
Rob, how would you explain the difference between Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman in the pic in the description? She seems to have a 2" (2.5"?) heel, making her 184-185 cm in footwear, and Jackman only looks 2-3 cm taller, so 187-188 cm in footwear? That doesn't make sense if you think Hugh is 188 cm barefoot. I recon he's more 6'1.5 (186-187 cm).
Rico says on 17/Jun/13
Rob, what do you think about the height of Hugh Jackman compared to Ben Affleck? They have lots of pictures together and they seem almost identical in height.
Taylor says on 5/Jun/13
Rob have you ever met Hugh Jackman before?
[Editor Rob: not yet]
Mr. R says on 4/Jun/13
Yeah, he is actually 6-2.5. I met Nicole and she is at least 5-11 without heels.
Cosette says on 3/Jun/13
From the pictures I see, he looks like he's at a 6'0.5"-6'1.5" range. But I think he's more like he's 6'1" exact from the photo above. Nicole is wearing 1 inch heels at 5'10.5" which makes her 5'11.5" and she only looks 1 inch shorter. This would put Hugh Jackman at 6'0.5".
Len says on 17/May/13
I'd guess 6'1" for Jackman, at most

Kidman's heels in that photo are not especially tall, she's probably 6'1" in that photo, and looks very close to Jackman in height there.

His dress shoes add an inch, so you could even argue that he's more like a strong 6'0".

Why do nearly all male Hollywood actors (and not a few female ones) *insist* on adding 2 inches to their heights? It's almost standard practice, it seems.

[Editor Rob: for every guy who is 6ft 2 there's another who is 6ft 2.25 and another 6ft 1.75...so you could have 2 guys saying 6ft 2 and they'd look half inch apart.

it is bound to be the case for a lot of people who don't say fractions, jackman I think is near 6ft 2 flat, he could always dip a little shy of it, more than being like 6ft 2.25 ]

I bet all my money that this guy will be eye to eye with me if we met, and Ryan Reynolds too, both are 6'1.5, nothing more or less.

A true 6'1.5 guy can give a full 6'2 impression a lot, that's why he looks 6'2 sometimes, he's a weak 6'2.

A classic example of a legit 6'2 is Jean Reno, who easily towered over a lot of actors in some of his old movies.

As listed, but he's surprisingly naturally skinny. He has a classic meso build, chest arms and stomach all typical meso without the "ripped ab" look. All I can say is that he must be eating half a farm and lifting twice a day to maintain it. Reynolds is an endomorph and could never look as solid as Jackman.

Hugh Jackman is a weak 6'2. He's about 2 inches taller than Christian Bale (6'0) and about an inch taller than Michael Caine (6'1). And he's around the same height as Ryan Reynolds (6'2). Ryan Reynolds even said in an interview with Craig Ferguson that Hugh Jackman is 6'3. Though I think that he's a weak 6'2 or if not then he's very close to it. He's also noticeably taller than Ewan Mcgregor (5'9.5).

Jackman looked 6'2 on RAW and Zack Ryder is 6'3 but wwe bills him as 6'2 because hes pretty thin for a 6'3 wrestler. They did the same thing with Christian back when he was a cruiserweight.
