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 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."

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 3/Aug/14
They don't look identical because of the hair and because Hugh Jackman is standing closer to the camera. Along with that, Costner is slouching a bit. 6'0" Nicholas Cage has John Travolta beaten by at least 3-4 CM, so Jackman isn't the only one who has made him look 5'11".
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...

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...
pataan19 says on 4/Jun/14

Please give me your opinion, thanks!
[Editor Rob: Jackman can look 6ft 1.5 a good chunk of time, it isn't rule out he's a weak 6ft 2]
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 1/Jun/14
Or maybe Henrik is 6'3".
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 31/May/14
He looks 6'0" by both of them for some reason...

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".
ElRaloir says on 5/May/14

@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 ;)

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:

Click Here

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.]

In swordfish looked 6'2 compared to john travolta
James B says on 8/Apr/14
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.
Peyman says on 6/Apr/14
he is too short to think he is 6ft 2in
6ft 1in at best

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:

Click Here

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

Okay, he has 1.5 inches on him there.

He does look about an inch shorter than Prince William in comparison to a heeled Kidman in the above photo.

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

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?

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
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
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.

he didn't look over 6'2 on wwe raw with ziggler
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Aug/13
Hugh Jackman - 6ft2.25in(189cm)
Sacha Baran Cohen - 6ft3.5in(192cm)
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.

I see about a 2 inch difference between Jackman and Cohen, same in the film.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Aug/13
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
188-189cm rather than 187-188cm
Lenad is sexy says on 26/Jul/13
Hugh looks a weak 6'2 to me
Shelly says on 25/Jul/13
I'd say he's about 6' 1". I'm watching Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and, if Jimmy Fallon is 5' 11.5" or nearly 6 foot, they only have 1-1.5 inch difference. I'll even attach a photo to show what I mean.

Mr. R says on 28/Jun/13
In one of these mags this month, I think Men's Health, he refers to himself as 6-2 and 170. But it does not say when he made that comment. He could have been referring to himself when he was younger.
Silent d says on 23/Jun/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.
Dejavu says on 12/May/13
He is 6'2
johno says on 8/May/13

To me jackman is between 6'1 - 6'1.5

Can look 6'1", 6'2" and even 6'3" from time to time. I'd say a solid 6'1.5" is on the target.
SAMMY DERRICK says on 17/Apr/13
From a certain website Hugh Jackman was 6'2.5(189cm)and Wolverine was 5'3(160cm)and so he felt a little uncomfortable about being 6,2.If he knew how lucky he is.
John says on 17/Apr/13
Hes 187

Kidmans heels probably give 4 inches. Plus hugh is leaning more. Barefoot i estimate 187cm

now,this is how a solid 6'2'' guy would look like! he could even be 6'2.5'' inches.i'd buy it.just look at how long his legs are in x-men origins:wolverine,especially at the scene just after he crashes down the helicopter.

Either Lebron James is 6'8" as he claims or Hugh Jackman is not 6'2".He looks 6 good inches shorter than him.

6 foot 2.

Well arch I think that is because Sacha is slim and has great posture.
Arch Stanton says on 12/Feb/13
Sacha Baron though always appears a bit more than a flat 6'3" to me though James, I think he a strong 6'3"; seeing his comment to Howard Stern I think he considers himself too tall as it is.
Arch Stanton says on 12/Feb/13
189 isn't extreme for Jackman but 6'3" is. He looks a legit 6'2" to me, not buying 6'1" range.

what do u think rob? 6'1.75 isn't impossible i guess? i think hes very close too 6'2 but he could measure just a tiny fraction under 188cm.
[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 ]
Lo sgozzatore says on 30/Jan/13
I think Affleck is a bit taller than Jackman, at about 6'2. Jackman looks a weak 6'2, i think a 6'1.5 listing would be closer, maybe 6'1.75 but i doubt he's a full 6'2 guy
Balrog says on 29/Jan/13
Affleck is clearly closer to camera not to mention the angle isn't the best.
Sam says on 29/Jan/13
Xina, Affleck's head almost right next to the camera here, so the photo has a warped angle. In some other shots they appear around the same mark:

He did look 6 foot 1 next to russell crowe and didn't look 6 foot 2. My conclusion is that russell had a little lift. 6 foot 2.

Ok he does not look a full 6'2'' in a lot of pics but Rob clearly says he wears ultra thin footwear so you should look the full pic to be sure.

He cannot look short next to SBC. He's still quite tall, he's over 6'1
