How tall is Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman's Height

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 include The Prestige, Les Miserables, Australia, Prisoners and Swordfish. The Van Helsing director Stephen Sommers described Hugh as being "six-foot-two and 210 pounds of solid steel", a height which Hugh himself has said numerous times:
I'm 6-foot-2, so I'm too tall to sit comfortably in most chairs.
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. I was worried about it when I first had my audition because pleasing fans of the franchise is important. My height was brought up on the Internet. They didn't think it was right. A lot of people who never met me think I'm very short.
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?"

Hugh is taller than Cena, but not by much though

Cena needs a bit of an upgrade to 6'0.75'', since he is actually taller than Dean Ambrose!

He needs to be put to Deans listed height at the very least.

I think he definitely is bit more than just 184cm

Peak 187,5 and now 186,5 I'm pretty sure what do you say rob?
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 26/Apr/17
@berta

You're right. Jackman could be 186.5cm (about 6ft1.5) today. I doubt he was a solid 6ft2 peak though. I can't see a half inch height loss, a quarter inch maybe.
berta said on 26/Apr/17
i think in the photo where they look at eachother and both stand tall you can see that jackman is taller about half inch.i cant see cena taller than 185 that means that jackman could be down to 186,5 today. but its just one photo its hard to judge height on only that. i believe jckman still is 187-187,5
anon said on 25/Apr/17
can someone explain to me how he can be six one plus if he's shorter than John Cena??
Editor Rob:
When Jackman poses, a lot of the time he drops height in hip and spine...Here.
Chris said on 23/Apr/17
Admitted to Ryan Reynolds in an interview for Eddie the eagle that he has used lifts in wolverine movies to look taller .
Willes188 said on 23/Apr/17
He looked 6ft 2 range in X-Men 1 & 2.

@Mark a fraction over 6'2 for Hugh places Brandon routh a fraction over 6'3 which is unlikely to be safe Hugh peaked at 6'1.75 and routh 6'2.5
Mark(5'9.25 said on 15/Apr/17
a fraction over 6'2" is fine for Jackman.

He was 187-188 10 years ago now 186-187

187cm today but 10-20 years ago he was 188-189cm

Hugh is and has always been 187. I don't think he has lost height tbh.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/17
@Willes188: I think that mark is possible for him. He really could look like a 6ft3 guy at times in the past...and probably was out of bed
Willes188 said on 9/Apr/17
Same height as me in his prime 188.5-189cm, but we both round down to 188cm or 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/17
I think he's still close to 6ft2 today when measured
shiva 181 cms said on 6/Apr/17
@Berta I agree with you, he hasn't lost much may be a cm i depends much on genetics too
Cameron said on 5/Apr/17
Peak height???? I don't think he's lost any height but maybe he has.

He looks 189cm
berta said on 4/Apr/17
shiva yes he lifts heavy( in some peoples eyes) but i can tell you as a carpenter and also bodybuilder/strongman that lifting, lets say deadlift 8 sets start easy at 100 kg and work his way up to maybe at best 170 kg if he does not try to max.You lift for about o total time of maybe 4 minues at most. Ore lets say lift up 30 plasterboards 5 stairs up for a total time of 1 hour and all of them wight about 35 kg each. And then rest of the day you lift to but just as a example. its only 35 kg but you lift non stop 1 hour that day and then 1/3 of the time rest of the day ore lift 150 kg for 4 minutes. :P i think you guys see what i mean.its when you lift for that long periods of time you start to hurt your back and it start to really hurt. FOr me trainig is a play in the park even if i lift weight up at 250 kg. I only lift it for a couple sekunds each time with a belt around my back. Jackman as a carpenter woudl have been 185 cm today If this is the case he have lost height. Most of the time in the gym you actuyally just rest for the next set.
Mike said on 31/Mar/17
Lol at the people saying minimum 189 peak, when he was clearly almost a inch shorter than legit 6ft 2.5 Brandon Routh over 10 years ago... I can buy 6ft 2 peak, but definitely not over.
shiva 181 cms said on 31/Mar/17
Hugh jackman's height

peak height: 6'2.5-75(189-190cms) out of bed ,6'1.7 (187-
188cms) before bed

Current height :6'2--25 (188-189cms) out of bed
6'1.25-(186cms) before bed
Willes188 said on 28/Mar/17
lol barely 188cm. Easily 188-188.5cm in his finest days, and 190cm in the morning, today he can appear barely 187cm at times, but would probably measure it on the nose
Namor said on 28/Mar/17
Berta* Dammit I do part time labouring haha I better not lose height haha
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/17
Comfortably 188cm range at peak with a decent shot at measuring 189cm on a good day. You need to go back to Aussie stuff from the 90's before he became a big star. He could even give a 190/191cm impression at times. He was very lanky and reminded me a bit of Ashton Kutcher frame-wise.
shiva 181 cms said on 28/Mar/17
@ berta Hugh lifts much heavier weights than a carpenter even if for a hour that causes much strain on back bone

Willes188 said on 27/Mar/17
More 188-189cm at peak than 187-188cm. He probably measured 190cm on the dot in the morning. Nowadays he looks 186.5-187cm, and probably measures 188-188.5cm in the morning
berta said on 27/Mar/17
barely 188 peak and today little over 187 i dont believe this 1/2 loss. its mutch harder to work as a carpeneter all days than lift heavy 1 hour a day i promise you i should now who do both. and if you los this just from working out then every carpenter out there should have lost 1 inch at the age of 45
Huge Jackedman said on 25/Mar/17
@grizz He started a dehydration routine when shooting his anorexic shirtless scenes for Les Miserables and his shirtless scenes for every X-Men film from The Wolverine onwards. It causes his body fat to compress inwards and leave only muscle, as well as causing his veins to flare up and bloat. This is the cause for his thin appearance.
Shiva182cms said on 25/Mar/17
189cms for a peak jackman sounds impossible look at him with Brandon routh. Who's a real 189cms guy

Hugh hackman peak height is 187-188cms probably closer to 187cms
Now he's more 186cms and a few change
grizz said on 23/Mar/17
He surprisingly held its own next to 6'7 behemoth Merchant in Logan. But he lost some muscle compared to his early 2010 days. Sure, shredded he is, but way thinner.
Chris said on 23/Mar/17
Pretty much bang on 6"2 5 years ago and always had good posture so could maybe look like on the verge of 6"3 . When I watched the wolverine (2013) he looked noticeable shorter than his roles in the years before. Though at time of filming he would have been only 44 but the weightlifting for the wolverine roles does looking ensue as it is for most superhero roles now he has done a good 15 years for. He certainly did not look the full 6"2 in Eddie the eagle so I think he is a rare case of early height loss. I think the listing is spot on or either he was always a smudge under and is now 6"1.5
Willes188 said on 22/Mar/17

I think you'd need to toss a coin, Lorne. Both guys in their 30's could look 189cm zone at times
Lorne??? said on 18/Mar/17
Ron, cards on the table: they were likely within a half cm, so too close to call, really, but still:

Who would measure taller under the stadiometer:

Hugh Jackman, young, or a peak Michael Madsen?

I think Madsen maybe, but we can't be sure really.

Still, I would appreciate you're opinion

Same guy with Mike Tyson.

Editor Rob: might appear only a couple of inches difference between those pictures, the guy could be in 5ft 5 range and Hugh a lot of time doesn't stand as tall as he can.
Dejavu said on 16/Mar/17
At peak he is a strong 6'2. There were pics where he edged Ryan reynolds
TheMan said on 13/Mar/17
I would not be surprised if he would measure near 6'1 flat today
Willes188 said on 13/Mar/17
He looks 6'3 in Logan, just look at him next to Stephen who is a gaint!!!
Sam said on 13/Mar/17
He does look pretty tall in Logan. He's probably aided with favorable angles but does pull off looking bigger on screen than Boyd Hoydbrook and Eriq La Salle (who may have lost a smidge with age too) and not looking much under Stephen Merchant, who did have a noticeable slouch in their scenes together.
Chris said on 10/Mar/17
Next to Stephen merchant in Logan he could look pretty much 6"2 but was wearing boots
Chris said on 10/Mar/17
I think peak 6"1.75 and now 6"1.5. Boots could make him look taller
Shredder said on 10/Mar/17
Rob , Even though your not into Comics anymore , do you think 195 lbs at 5'3 for Wolverine is an unbelievable figure by looking at the shape of character? At 5'3 he seems like he'd be like 150 - 160.
Editor Rob: it's not that unbelievable if he has a ton of muscle, which from what I remember, the comic character did have...

I do watch a lot of comic movies of course...but, they are over-saturated now...it was inevitable because with the advance in film and cgi effects, it became easier to create great looking comic book films...

I remember reading a few years back on his IMDB that he was listed as 6'2.5 or a weak 6'3. I wonder how possible that is for Hugh back when he was in his 20's or 30's.



He could certainly give that impression at times
Logan said on 9/Mar/17
He edged out 6ft 1.5 Boyd Holbrook in Logan by at least a half inch, so either Jackman is still 6ft 2 or Holbrook needs a downgrade to a flat 6ft 1. Both were wearing similar heel boots in the scenes they shared together.
sadboyz said on 9/Mar/17
how come he lost height at such an early age?
Editor Rob: Jackman has done a lot of heavy weights over 15 years, I believe it effected him half an inch.
Shredder said on 9/Mar/17
Same here , he doesn't have to be a 5'3 Actor , but Maybe about 5'7.

Rob, has him right at 6'1.5. He looks the same height as Dev Patel. He did look taller 10 years ago though.
mister_lennon said on 4/Mar/17
6'1 in the worst of the cases nowadays. I think he was a solid 6'2 guy at peak or very close. A strong 6'1 or weak 6'2 is possible too.

Yes truely fact goes it. Jackman is more 6'1.5 peak and 6'1 now
Johan said on 13/Feb/17
That moment when people realise Rob has met Brandon Routh ( a legit 189 cm) and actually care to look at pics of him with Hugh 10 YEARS AGO.

He didn't even look over 6'1.5" 10 YEARS AGO ahahA.

@Peter 179cm

The picture with lebron james couldn't view their footwear and standing ground and atually jackman look more than 7" shorter minus a hair not 15-16cm and there is impossible lebron is 6'9 and not even a proper 6'7. In fact 6'4.75 Kobe bryant look at most 2" shorter than lebron james in real comparison. To me i have seem hugh jackman look 5.5" shorter than 6'6.5 daniel cudmore

Click Here full frame could tell a person height and more i look a jackman he does look 6'1 and at least 6'2 with shoes but if 187 peak like you say he can't be lower than 186cm his not even 50 years old yet at most he lost 1cm
Peter 179cm said on 1/Feb/17
He's about 185cm.Just look at pictures of him with Lebron James who absolutely dwarfed him,atleast 15-16cm and Lebron was measured 201cm flat on the draft combine and could barely be 200cm at night.Kaka at 186 is also taller,what else do you need?He's NOT 6'1.5-6'2 imo...Maybe 187 peak and 185 now anything more is inaccuate.
S.J.H said on 25/Jan/17
@6 foot 17 yrs still growing

Maybe jackman only loss a fraction not 0.5" more in 6'1.75

My honest opinion.

i think he was 1/4 under 62 in his peak and stil is. never looks a true 188 guy to me
6 foot 17 yrs still growing said on 17/Jan/17
Saw him next to kaka 6 ft 1.25 and then next 5 ft 11 at best david Beckham... and really got surprised he was shorter than 6 ft 1.25 kaka and not much taller than beckham
Dick curtis said on 14/Jan/17
I am 36 and havent lost a millimeter. If hugh is 1.87 right now then he probably was that 15 years ago as well. If he really was 1.88 back then, than he probably still is right now. Het is physically in ideal condition
Willes189 said on 13/Jan/17
He is not young...

Children 0-12 years old

Teenagers 13-16 years old

Late teens/young adults 17-19 years old

Young adults 20-29 years old

Adults 30-40 years old

Middle aged 40-55 years old

55< old


This is an interesting topic for sure! The best age range is probably 17-27 imo
dicky curtis said on 10/Jan/17
he is still quite young and in peak condition, lean and ideal weight. I would be surprised If he really already lost a half inch in height.
Willes189 said on 9/Jan/17
Ok this is good, 188-188.5 prime & 186.5-187 today

berta said on 10/Dec/16
the reason i think someone like jackman hasnt lost height of training butt dwayne has is if you look at hugh jackmans body you can see he is natural. he is very ripped and have a lot of muscles but nothing that nobidy cant get in 2 years of hard training sp i think hakcman was barely 188 peak an still is like 187,5 . dwayne lift mutch heavier weight that is hard to recover from and that low bodyfat does make your joints get injured. then the steroids on top of that. i think if people would use steroids as trt and have maxed testo it would not effect them but when they take huge amoutnts and then take less for a while and back and fort, thats when the bone density will get hurt and you will loose height and eisier hurt yourself
Jay said on 4/Dec/16
He's been with Affleck and they really look to be on the same eye level. Same with Reynolds, although last I checked you guys were a bit conflicted with him.

shiva 181 cms said on 8/Nov/16
He's a 6'1.75 guy in his prime now hes no more than 6'1.25 maybe on a good day he might measure 6'1.5

His peak out of bed height estimate would be 189-190 cms and evening height would be187-188cms he has a short torso he wouldn't have shrunk more than 2cms
Bobby said on 7/Nov/16
He can easily look 6'3 even today when he's nearing 50 years old. So 6'2 seems about right, but it's strange, he can look 6'4 at times. He looked especially tall in The Wolverine. Maybe he was wearing special shoes, who knows. Even the taller actors are known for wearing shoe lifts, but Hugh seems very honest about his height.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 3/Nov/16
6'2" in his peak.
King of the hill 91 said on 3/Nov/16
Its hard because he gives the impreshion of 187 cm at most but as well he can 188 to 189 cm peake and know 187 to 188 now 189 peak no more
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 29/Oct/16
I'm surprised, but he appeared to be almost the same as Ben Affleck. Maybe he is taller than I thought.
Brett said on 27/Oct/16
Rob... Hope you are well... I saw Jackman not so long ago, in a Gym in Bondi.

I have a picture of him and I... he was slightly bigger... I'd peg him at 6'2" for sure.

Happy to send it through :)
Editor Rob: it's definitely worth linking to, why not use imgur.com or something to upload and add a comment.
Johan said on 20/Oct/16
Yes and Brandon Routh is easily 6'3".





No wait he is 6'2.5". Next to Beckham also looks this listing ( 6'1.5") max. I can even see an argument for 6'1.25".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/16

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Oct/16
Every inch of 6ft2 peak and no less.
Brandon said on 2/Oct/16
Almost 50, heavy weight lifting for quite a few years, and possibly just bad genetics when it comes to his skeleton, height loss for him isn't insane or anything.
6'2" peak
6'1.25"ish today
Roy said on 1/Oct/16
Is he old enough to have a peak height? Must be all the weight lifting shrinking him down.
S.J.H said on 30/Sep/16
Theres a celebrity forum discussion about hugh jackman physics and height. An aussie teen who claim 6'1-1/4 barefoot saying no way jackman was taller than him and post a full picture with jackman a year ago , aussie teen looking 2cm taller jackman with similar footwear that makes jackman 6'0.5 but i don't buy that since this guy doesn't post a picture he get measure and he could be growing taller since he was only 18 as he mention on that forum. He could be grow out a bit at 6'2 with jackman. I think jackman is not quite 6'1.5 maybe 6'1.25 sticking my oldest guessing

In the 2000's he was usually labelled as 6ft2, 6ft2½ and occasionally 6ft3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/16
@Willes189: He could certainly look it at times in the past w/h guys like Travolta and Bale. A very solid 6ft2 guy in his 20's-30's is a good shout (i.e. 188.3cm or something like that). I think he may very well have measured a similar range to Affleck, Reynolds and Cusack.

187cm range seems a little low for his peak, IMO.
Andrea said on 18/Sep/16
6'2.5 is a big joke for Hugh... You can see him with Brandon Routh, who IS a legit 6'2.5 guy and looks at least an inch taller! And Daniel too... Btw, in case you don't know, Daniel himself did claim to have been measured at 6'6.5... So, no, he's not 200-202! Hugh has never been a full 6'2, let alone over that mark! Today, there's more than one picture where he can look BARELY 6'1!
Willes189 said on 17/Sep/16
Don't know about that Rob.. He looks 200-202cm in that photo, or something like that, Extremly Tall Guy!!

And let's take everything that has the name Charles Barkley in the title with a grain of salt. Just look at how he made 6'2.5-6'3 The Rock look like.. No way on earth that the guy is 6'4 range, and it's impossible for him to be with his genes, his dad is 7'0!

6'2.25 is still very possible for peak Jackman
Willes189 said on 15/Sep/16
Rampage

What would you guess Jackman's peak height to be? IMDb has him at 6'2 1/2 now, could that be a good guess?
Editor Rob: he only claims 6ft 2, if you see him beside a genuine 6ft 6.5 Cudmore: Cudmore vs Jackman, also with Barkley...I doubt I'd list Daniel 6ft 6 and then put Jackman 6ft 2.5.

It would be impossible to really argue those figures.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/16
Anything under 6ft2 peak is a joke. Just look at him w/h Travolta in Swordfish.
Willes189 said on 13/Sep/16
I miss the late 90s and early 00s (00-10) Hugh Jackman... What a guy he was back then :(

Rob, are you sure that 6'2.25 is out of question? I just re-watched The Prestige yesterday, for the 3rd time (outstanding movie) ,and he looked really tall next to 6'0 Bale, he made him look under average in some parts of the movie
Editor Rob: yes The Prestige is a great film, I think about 6ft 2 is ok for him, I could see an argument of a late 90's Jackman looking a solid 6ft 2 at times though.

Hugh jackman's peak height is (6'1.75) and now (6'1.25) he appeared very tall in all x-men series and all his movies but he appears tall because of his long limbs and average torso a small head for his height one need not be a strong 6'2 guy to be tall or appaer tall his stature is pretty tall if he had a head size like reynolds to his high shoulders he could have been an easy 189 cms guy in his peak , there a cm b/w them
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
@Willes189: First off, I don't think there's as much as 2cm between Jackman and Reynolds. Hugh I think was a strong 6ft2 and is now a weak 6ft2. Reynolds who is almost 10 years younger than Jackman is currently a strong 6ft2. Back to back in their prime they were identical, I feel

Funny I remember him being listed 6 4 at the time the first xmen came out comic geeks will notice that is a full foot taller than the canon one.
He looked quite tall in those flicks but was likely wearing boots think he tends to favor them.
In photos he looks 6 7 next to the hobbit reject macavoy and tall next to fassbender.
he is not 5 10 but after all the weird diets and bodybuilding he is likely 6 1 or so now.
Willes189 said on 2/Sep/16
This is a hard one Rampage, he was probably 187.5-188cm (6'2), but that sweet 6'2.5 mark could be out of reach for him 00-05, Reynolds is in his peak now and looks 0.25 inches taller then peak Jackman. But then Reynolds is probably more 189.5cm, 190cm is a stretch for him

Peak Hugh 187.5 (6'2) could he relly be 188-189 (6'2.25) at peak?. I'm going to start my re-investigation on Jackman's peak height this weekend, i want to believe that he was 6'2.25 at peak

Reynolds 189.5 (6'2.25-6'2.5) tall guy, he is keeping it low profile
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Aug/16
Looked more 6ft2-2½ range than 6ft1½-2 in the early 2000's.

I belive he peaked at around 187.5cm and stands at 186.3-186.4cm today i still think he would measure over the 186cm mark today
Willes189 said on 21/Aug/16
I'm not happy to say that i agree, i used to think that Hugh was one of the most solid 6'2 guys in Hollywood, he looked so tall on screen in X-men 1&2, and his officiall height seemed to be 189cm everywhere on the internet back in 00-05

rob is 6 1.75 peak and 6 ft 1.25 now possible
Editor Rob: it's arguable for him yes.
Sexton1 said on 10/Aug/16
This is a funny one. He's not old, but he does seem to have lost height—and Rob's got a very good eye for these things.

Still, I'm not sure the heavy lifting would have caused the loss as opposed to age/genetics/postural issues. The study that Rob and others like to cite showing the effect of weightlifting on spinal degeneration was done on Olympic weightlifters, who, although they were mostly only in their mid-20s at the time, would still have done 10+ years of extreme training of a kind that is impossible to imagine for a non-elite athlete (we're talking 2 times a day, six days week, lifting massive loads explosively at a high volume). Jackman, although he's done plenty of "heavy" lifting for a civilian, wouldn't have done anything like that.

The study I take my bearings from on this issue is the well-known Finnish twin study. They compared the spines of twins where one twin had done heavy labor over a lifetime or been a truck driver, anything that appears to put great stress on the back, while the other had been, say, an office worker. The differences, at least as they appeared on an MRI, were negligible, suggesting spinal degeneration is mostly genetic.

And even then, it's not clear how much of standing height loss is attributable to actual spinal degeneration and how much to muscular degeneration and general postural decline related to age. I've had friends, athletes who get measured regularly, who've had serious spinal injuries and have pretty much lost a whole disc or two, and it's made no measurable difference to their afternoon standing height, which suggests that, if spinal degeneration does make a great difference, it's really through degeneration through the whole link of the spine, and not the kind of localised damage that occurs as a result of training and injuries (which fits with the fact that old people's spines don't lengthen as much as young people's spines under traction).

As for the pro wrestlers, who really do seem to lose height with age, this reflects, I think, the fact that their heights were inflated when they were young, and the general physical detonation that seems to afflict wrestlers as a result of the lifestyle—not only constant falling and injuries, but endless travel on the road, drug abuse etc. Most of these guys are just in pretty bad general shape by the time they get to 50 or so, not standing as tall as they once did.
Mike said on 7/Aug/16
I'm still thinking he was 6ft 2 at one point. I strictly remember In X-Men Origins: Wolverine in a scene with 187 Danny Huston, he looked to have 0.5 to 1 inch on him, which would make him 189 cm...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/16
Looked nothing under 6ft2 10-15 years ago and more often could appear 189cm zone
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 20/Jul/16
Rob, would you say that the difference between Nicole Kidman's eye level to the top of the head is likely more signifcant than Hugh Jackman's? The eye level difference between the two looks to be 4 CM, but I see 2 CM tops between them in that photo.
Editor Rob: a slight downtilt from Nicole and it will make her eyelevel look bigger, which I think is happening...although she too has what I would believe is half inch of hair.

Rob what do you think of them photos. I think he looked 189cm early 2000s but now a bit shorter probably around 187cm.
Editor Rob: the daily mail site is very resource intensive, so I don't visit it much, but Jackman I don't think was more than 188 15 years ago.

Rob, Would 6'1.75 would be his maximum height at the age he is right now?

I'm 187 CM with an inseam of 28 inches. Is that short for my height? My torso does seem very long.
AAAA said on 12/Jul/16
interesting article here from a costume designer who worked with Hugh Jackman for one of his one man plays. He seamstress says he has a 37 in inseam!?!?! Thats just absurd. I'm going to guess the avg 6'1-6'2 guy has a 33 or a 34. If this is true I can't imagine him being any less than 6'2 at his prime.

Rob, any info or stats on this kinda stuff? Most people I've met with 36+ inseams are 6'4 or greater. Not saying Jackman is or has ever been over his claimed 6'2, I think you've got his current listing spot on. I'm just curious. That kids leg to torso ratio reminds me of someone like a young Clint Eastwood.

Hugh Jackman's hair adds an inch of height in that photo, but he does look taller than Nicole Kidman by about 2-3 CM still.

In that photo Kidman looks tall as Jackman with those heels, around 6 cm (179 + 6 cm of heel). 187 cm should be right for him.

Arch Stanton said on 28/May/16
I can definitely see how some of these celebs seem to lose height early on. If you consider how much wear and tear these actors go through in making action films, over time it's going to take its toll. I twinged my back recently and am having trouble recovering as when I'm in bed I seem to keep pulling it when I turn. Very sensitive things backs, so I can certainly see how people like Jackman could lose a bit of height in 40s.
Editor Rob: Jackman has done a lot of heavy lifting over 15 years...I don't think that has helped.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/May/16

Rob, who appears to be taller in the photo to you with him Garrett Hedlund? Garrett Hedlund seems to be a bit taller than him in my opinion.

Garrett Hedlund (6'1 1/2") appears to be taller than him in every single photo of the two together.
Andrea said on 13/Apr/16
Lol Rob, how can you still believe 188 night is still possible for Hugh???
He did look at least an inch shorter than Brandon Routh and 5 inches shorter than Daniel Cudmore...
He has NEVER been 6'2 in his life, unless he started shrinking at 30, of course :)
Editor Rob: maybe Hugh could follow the G pattern...shrinking from 5ft 8 to 5ft 6.5 in mid 30's, then regrowing to 5ft 8 in 40's.

If he measured 187 in his 30's it certainly wouldn't be a huge surprise, although for the moment I feel he could pull off near enough 6ft 2.
AAAA said on 13/Apr/16
Found this interesting. Hugh next to Charles Barkely, and the Rock next to Charles Barkely. Based on where their eyes are hitting on Barkely's head, I would say Hugh looks to have the Rock (eyes are near mouth for both. Barkely's eyebrows are at the hairline/top of head for hugh, and clearly over the Rock)
Click Here
Click Here

Rock has better posture in this photo, but neither he or Charles are perfect.

Hugh is also in front of Charles at the White House pic.

Maybe it is all in the camera but I can't see the Rock having 1.5'' on Hugh if they were next to each other. If Hugh is 6'1.5 then the rock is looking 6'2-6'2.25 to me.
What do you think Rob?
Orca said on 13/Apr/16
People will be shorter when they are older. I think Hugh Jackman is 6ft2 (1m88) now and 10 years ago he is more than 6ft2 (1m89). I see him in X-Man Originals, he is really tall.

To be fair, Luke Evans looked shorter next to Kellan Lutz and Henry Cavil than he did with Jonathon Ross and Hugh Jackman, something was not quite right there. I don't believe neither Ross or Jackman are shorter than Lutz or Cavil. Kellan looked around 5'11.75 - 6'0 with Rob.

Also Luke Evans just about looked an inch or so taller than Eric Roberts who looked no taller than 5'8 next to Rob. I don't believe Evans is above 5'10, he was not taller than Sir Ian Mackellan.

Hugh and Ross looked the same height but i am going to Push Hugh to 6'1 because i am confident Ross is on the lower of the 6'0-range.

Jonathan Ross 6'0.25
Hugh 6'1
Luke Evans, no taller then 5'10
Lutz 5'11.75, 6'0
Cavil 5'11.75, 6'0

Rob, how likely is 185-6 range for him ? I can agree with your listing, but he also look like a 6'1" flat guy a lot.
Editor Rob: if I was betting, I wouldn't put much money on it...if it was around 187cm I'd put a bigger bet on that.
Mr S said on 8/Mar/16
@ Rob: What do you think caused him to shrink in his 40's? He seems to be a fit, healthy man it's very odd that he has lost half an inch at 47. Considering that Stallone and Liam Neeson have only lost half an inch and they are in their 60's 1/2 inch at 47 seems strange.
Editor Rob: I think for 15 years Jackman has done a good amount of heavy lifting and it has taken it's toll by a centimetre.
Dejavu said on 6/Mar/16

Johno said on 2/Mar/16
Sometimes Rob, i reckon you get visted. I do hear passions flare on here. Hugh does not wear lifts in most events, maybe just for Wolverine. He don't need to wear lifts simply because he is taller then most stars; i can name quite a few who do at most times though.

6'1

@ Grizz. The 1st photo was meant to show the heel. Not for a height comp. her posture is loose but so is his. Tinyurl was giving me issues. Can't post the link. Try googling it if you're curious. Lots of shots from that premier. There's another photo of them all standing straight relative to one another. He's clearing Jansen and Romain by an easy 2 inches of not more with a downward head tilt. I agree he is likely 6'1.5 now that rob has him listed at. I do think all the weight lifting has caused him to lose a half inch at 45. I misspoke before when I said minimum. I could see the argument being made for looking 6'1.5 in the same photos. It comes down to what would be hit standing military. my point was that if he was really only 6-6'.05 like some have been claiming he couldn't look that tall with an in sneaker height of 6'1. Jansen would have had to show up to the premiere barefoot and walk in a trench for this pic to work. She's listed here at 5'11.5. Unfortunately the only other pic I can find isn't full body.

Rob, can you make sure the address I post makes it I. Even if it isn't a link? Thanks. If anyone can find a full scale versio. Of this it would be great.

Remember, Hugh is about 10 years older than Ryan. I think in his 30s he looked in the same range as Reynolds, Affleck or Bana (188-190cm).
grizz said on 24/Feb/16
I still think that interview wasn't serious.
Hugh answered that it was something to do with his character development or some story reason .
Which is ridiculous. Jackman's Wolverine looks nothing like comic book Wolverine. He's tall and slim while Wolverine is short and stocky.
For more genuine portrayal, he should've been more masculine, hunch a lot and do shootings with bare feet and not appear taller.

If true, however, that might make Jackman 6'1.75 peak and 6'1.25 now.

Johno said on 8/Feb/16
The reason why he stated that he was told to lie about his height and state 6'0 rather then a higher heigt, or his real height according to him, may have more got to so the fact that their might be earlier sources out there that state this height and might be closer to his real height rather trying to underplay his tall stature ---- height is always a good thing and i don't understand why he would feel to downgrade it, i don't believe would downgrade his height.

Johno said on 27/Jan/16
In all fairness to Hugh, most layman over estimate thier heights ----- well men anyway; by 1.5 inches, i have seen this often thus, to keep in everything relative, i can see why he claims 6'2, that is because most people who don't pay much attention to height would state he is tall and 6'2 and similarily over-state their own respective heights. Bradley Cooper Rob has listed at 6'0.5 and Hugh Jackman strangely looks exactly the height as him.
Johno said on 22/Jan/16

With Sugar Ray Leonard who Rob has been pictured, Rob lists him at 5'9 but i don't see any height difference between Rob and Ray. Like Rob, Ray is between 5'8-5'8.5 and most importantly, Hugh obviously does not have 4-inches on him ---- try 3.5-inches.

If Sugar Ray is between 5'8 - 5'8.5, then Hugh looks between 5'11.5 - 6'0 in comparison to him and consistently does. Thus, these estimates of 6'1.75 or even above 6'1 look quite surprising.

As i said before, 6'1 is a decent estimate; certainly with any possible comparison to Rob, Hugh's height would drop even further.

Does not fair well with Jake Gyllenhaal, who we know is ~ 5'10.5 as per recent measurement [ Tapes don't lie], the difference between is maximum 2 inches and probably a bit less. Therefore, 6'1 is a correct ceiling for him, he probably measures even less.

My dad pointed out after watching jackman on Jonathan ross that he's a weird guy and I do agree.


Like i said in my last post with someone like Ewan Mcgregor his nice guy personality just seems more natural and 'real'. Hugh Jackman seems like he tries to hard to be very nice where it seems like an act.

I am quite suprised I am the only one who gets this vibe from Hugh but that's just me.
James B said on 12/Nov/15
Rob am I the only one who gets that impression hugh jackman seems like a bit of 'fake' nice guy who might be quick to turn if you did something to piss him of?

An actor like Ewan Mcgregor comes acros as being a genuinely nice laid back person. Hugh on the other hand seems quite excitable and fiery. It seems like he has a forced smile on his face a lot like a bit over the top.

He is a family man so I could be wrong.
Editor Rob: there's always spurilous rumours surrouding actors.

I've watched a fair amount of interviews with him over the years and he seems like a decent bloke...

"Hugh Jackman's height is 6ft 1⅞in (187.642cm)
"Peak height was 6ft 2⅛in (188.277cm)"

So that's about 0.5cm tops lost. 6ft2⅝(189.3cm) out of bed today and at peak 6ft2⅞(190.1cm)

Rob , what would you guess his weight?
[Editor Rob: can vary from 190-210 range I feel]
Z187 said on 22/Oct/15
Measures up well against jeremy clarkson when he appears on top gear, so yeah full 6'2 I'd say
Dejavu said on 17/Oct/15
He looked a strong 6'2 but he could dip a bit under 6'2 today.
Willes190 said on 16/Oct/15
He looked a solid 189 in the first two X-Men movies
Dan said on 15/Oct/15
Rob, I think he has never been 6' 2". He hasn't been lifting very much weight and he's still young. In my opinion he didn't shrink and he has always been 6' 1.5". What do you say? Just like other guys said it before, he sometimes even struggles to look 6' 1"...
Sam said on 14/Oct/15
There's a lot of photos where Jackman looks 6'1.5" frankly, but he doesn't always stand his best, and near other 6'2" rangers like Ryan Reynolds or Ben Affleck he really doesn't look under 6'2" IMO.
Ray said on 13/Oct/15
I thought he was taller, but I think 6'1.5 is accurate after seeing the pic with him and Barkley.. Click Here
Grant said on 12/Oct/15
Is it safe to say that Ryan Reynolds is taller than him today?
Allie said on 11/Oct/15
I don't what you guys are talking about. I don't remember Famie wearing that big footwear. Wolverine has his big boots right that would make him like 6'3 range. While Famke in The Last Stand she spent several scenes wearing nothing!

James marsden fisch
GP said on 7/Oct/15
Fisch, because he is not 6'2" that he claims, he was the lead in the movie and they were trying to hype his character to start up Wolverine movie chain and when he you are up against a female actress who is very tall, as Famke is and in heels, she would most likely edge him out. Those are the main reasons that he would wear lifts, because in movies is all about perception, go watch some John Wayne movies.
Dejavu said on 7/Oct/15
I thought Hugh Jackman edged out Garrett Hedlund
fisch said on 7/Oct/15
GP, why should they give him lifts for x-men, when wolverine is actually meant to be 5'4''. hugh was actually way too tall for the role.
It was James marsden, who played cyclops, who wore 2 inch lifts in the movie.

Is 5'10" considered short now???? Or its just that Hugh Jackman is tall not average?
GP said on 2/Oct/15
Rob, how come you have him the same height at 187 as Dev Patel. Didn't Patel look about an inch taller in the movie and on the premiere? Makes me question his statement that he is 6'2". I always thought he was 185 with long arms and long legs that gave the impression that he was taller. And if I'm not wrong, they had him in lifts in x-men
[Editor Rob: they look very close to me, with possible slight advantage to Dev.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Sep/15
He used to look taller than Reynolds.


Strong 6ft2 guy peak, no less.
Dejavu said on 6/Sep/15
He can look 6'1-6'2 these days but I think he is closer to 6'2. At times he could look the same as Ryan Reynolds.
ManKo said on 1/Sep/15
He didnt do that much of heavy lifting, and he is young. If guys like the rock dont have a peak hight (he lift way heavier than Hugh) or guys like Bill Kazmaier (world strongest man, now in his 60s, he doenst have a peak heigh either), Hugh shouldnt have one either.
Mat 5'10 said on 27/Aug/15
Rob, Who called Jackman 5'10? I think he was being a bit stupid with that quote. No one thinks Jackman is short.
[Editor Rob: I think he's making a general point about not getting upset over opinions, when you yourself know it's wildly incorrect.

Maybe he once encountered somebody who said 'Mate you're like 5ft 10?'...as much as the internet is full of trolling, real-life contains it's fair share too.

Believing he's (still) near 6'2 would be much more insane! With Beckham he struggles to look 6'1, same thing with Lebron! Today he doesn't look much over 6'1, so it's up to you to believe whether he's shrunk and he was nearer 6'2 when "younger" or he's never been much over 6'1! :)
Also, Hugh is not your average joe... As Rob said, he spent many years lifting heavy weights so a small loss is possible. One thing, back in 2006, he already didn't look over 6'1.5 with Brandon Routh, so i doubt he's ever been 6'2, people like Lance Reddick who claims 6'2 too would be easily an inch taller than him!!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jul/15
I think the downgrade is insane. Look at guys like Jason Statham, Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. They're not gonna get downgrades anytime soon. He used to give a taller impression than Reynolds.

I don't think a peak height is at all necessary.

"Hugh Jackman height: 6ft 2in (188cm)"
-----
He was no doubt 6'2" at his peak, but with all the heavy lifting he has done, it's pretty clear he has lost some height, he might not be as low as Rob lists him, maybe 6'1.75 is more reasonable?

6'1/5 is more of a minimum height. He's more 6'1.75 - 6'2.

Early 2000's he looked 188-189cm range at least (Swordfish, 1st X-Men movie, Kate & Leopold).

170 pounds ain't all that skinny for 6'2 i mean look at James stewart.

I wonder rob 'naturally' is hugh jackman small framed?

It is light side. I think anywhere from 180-200lbs is the "ideal" weight range for 6ft2. But then again it is all about bone structure. Jackman pre-Wolverine was naturally lean whereas someone like John Goodman is naturally bulky
[Editor Rob: I suppose in a gym setting with other guys, they might see 170 as like quite skinny in comparison to other physiques you see at the gym.]
ManKo said on 6/Jun/15
I would like to see more studies about weightlifting and height loss. There are many strongmen, bodybuilders, westrlers, in their 60s that didnt lose height, while there are others that lost a lot (Arnold, Hulk Hogan, etc...).

Maybe some people are genetically more prono to lose height, maybe its related to steroids, or injures, maybe they were never that tall to begin with (many say Arnold was never more thasn 6´1), etc...

I can say that im a powerlifter, I deadlift regularly about 400 pounds, and when I train in the morning, It gets me to my lowest posible height. However, I always recover my maximun the next morning, after i wake up. the dats I dont lift, I lose height slowly during the day, not ad fast as the days that I deadlift/squat.
