How tall is James Marsden ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

James Marsden height: 5ft 9.5in (177 cm)

American actor best known for roles in X-Men, Enchanted and Hairspray remarked in Starlog magazine that playing the character Cyclops posed a problem: "I actually had to wear lifts in my shoes to get up to where I needed to be", which is understandable. He also reveals that "[I'm] 5-foot-10 and ...(Cyclops)... is 6-foot-3. Wolverine is supposed to be 5-foot-3 and Hugh is 6-foot-2, I think. We had to shorten him and stretch me out a bit. So I was hanging myself upside down in my closet at night"

Rob, that guy (Luca Argentero) and Raoul Bova will be in a movie together, so it'll be interesting to see the difference between the two. Btw, i met an italian guy who is pretty famous here and who claims 188. I saw him close and i am sure this guy is not over 183-184. Well, this guy "interviewed" many celebrities and Bova too. Bova easily looked at least 2-3 cms shorter and he also probably had shoe advantage, so he really isnt over 180-181! ;)

Rob, what about a downgrade? And please dont't answer with "he's likely a weak 5'10" or something like that! He's 5'9.25 at most, being generous...
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9.5 might be an ok shout]

@MD: 100% agree. 5'9 flat has been my estimate for him for as long as I can remember.
It should be quite obvious that this guy is not the 5'10 he claims.

It's worth posting this again (with 5'11 Josh Radnor): Click Here
Both are wearing flipflops at this event. Compared to a 5'11 guy - Marsden's a 5'9 guy if I ever saw one...

@Editor Rob: Steve Carell claims 5'10, but is listed 5'9 because he genuinely looks it - Marsden is exactly the same, and should be listed accordingly ;)

I'm seeing no more than 5'9'' flat for James Marsden, if a 5'8'' Patrick Stewart in 2 inch heeled cowboy boots is slightly taller than him. Marsden probably has a 1 inch heel, if that.

5'11 morning says on 27/Feb/14
Hollywood adds 2-3 inches on most male actors who are average height. Burt Reynolds said it best.

RRob,

Here he is with 5'9" Steve Carell. The rest of the set of pics at Getty show that they are both in boots:

Unless Carell is in lifts, too - and I guess anything is possible - there is no way James if a full 5'10". The 5'10" claim is his shoe height, obviously.

Clearly taller than 5'8" Cameron Diaz in 'The Box'. 5'10" seems fair to me.

Flight attendant alert : Carried him on flight. 5'7 max. Same height as me or smaller.

Marsden must have been standing on a box the entire time he was shooting X-men
cole says on 13/Jul/13
He's clearly more than 1.25" shorter than Josh Radnor who might even be 5'11 flat. I don't buy 5'10 for this guy. Closer to 5'9 range is more likely.

No way is he 5'10". It was obvious in 27dresses that he is shorter than Katherine Heigl and she is 5'9"
