How tall is Jensen Ackles

Jensen Ackles Height

6ft 0in (183 cm)

American actor best known to tv audiences for his portrayal of Dean Winchester on hit tv show Supernatural. In film he can be seen in My Bloody Valentine 3D. In a 2005 edition of the Boston Herald he mentioned his height, saying "[Jarad Padalecki] about 6 feet 5 inches - of course he won't admit it. I'm 6 feet 1 inch and he makes me look like a shrimp. It's funny because all our guest stars come on and say, `Oh, you've got to be kidding me'". This photo is from an Asylum Supernatural convention in 2007, England. He had a good 0.5 inch thicker boots than my sneaker in this pic.

A chance of 183 .5 rob some people say at one point he was put 178 cm what do you make of that whats the lowest you would put him and hiest
Editor Rob: I wouldn't put Jensen at a fraction over 6ft...though I think if he was under six foot, it's not by much really.

S.J.H said on 7/Nov/16
Jensen ackles look at least fraction taller than a worst 6'0 claim dylan mcdermott. He may not be under 182cm and mcdermott not over 5'11.5 (181.6cm)

Jensen ackles height 5'11.75 (182.2cm)

Rob, when you rack up 1000 votes eventually and you get a mean of say "5ft11.86in" or whatever will you list him at that exact figure or round it to the nearest quarter?
Editor Rob:
the guessing option is further down the page, so a good chunk of visitors to a page won't ever see it...I think it would take many years for 1000 guesses on Ackles!

The average is still the user average, it is useful to see a general opinion. Especially if it was half inch or more different than my guess...then maybe I should look closer and see if I think my guess was too low/high.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Oct/16
He doesn't fall below the 182cm mark. I think overall he looks like a 6ft guy
Tedrenegade17 said on 11/Oct/16
when him and Misha Collins stand next to one another and no footwear advantage is present for either one of them, I would say Jensen is at least 1 inch taller. I think 182-183 cm would be this guy's height. 183 in the morning probably as low as 182 by night.

It gives me great pleasure to guess Jensen's Aclkle's evening height as 5'11.5 feet. I do no way see 4 inches diff with Rob in pic above including footwear advantage.
Johan said on 21/Sep/16
Just remember Jensen tends to wear 1.6 inch boots on Supernatural so he would have an inch of footwear or close to it on Jim and then around 1 inch taller. So Jim thinking he is around 2 inches taller than him isn't that crazy.

I think JIm is a 5'10.5"-5'10.75" guy last years and could have had an earlier in the day measurement or with shoes.
184guy said on 20/Sep/16
If Jared is really 6'4.25 So there's no way that Jensen is a mm under 6'
In the show they are always using similar footwear( boots) and strangely there is occasion where Jensen looks max 1 inch shorter than his co-host
Andrea said on 20/Sep/16
Well, even Jim Beaver thought Jensen is "a good two inches taller" than himself (assuming that Jumblejim visitor was the real Jim)...
The truth is that he is not even the full 6'...
Now, Alan Ritchson looks near enough 6'2... Click Here If you think they look similar, then yeah he's 6'2 :)
6'3 manlet said on 20/Sep/16
183.5cm 2-3 hours out of bed isn't out of the question. There is no way he is 184cm however.
Sam said on 20/Sep/16
@Caitlin, you're probably around 5'10 but just assume you're near 6'0 if you think Jensen is 6'2. Judging by the pic I wouldn't be surprised if he measured 182cm considering he has a shoe advantage. Explain why he looks a good 2 inches shorter than 6'2 in the picture with Rob who is 5'8, not Benedict btw.
Caitlin said on 16/Sep/16
I am a very tall woman - just shy of six feet, 5 feet 11 3/4 inches. I have been to four conventions now, and Jensen is definitely the 6' 2" and Jared is absolutely 6' 4" or 5". They are not exaggerating. And it's nice to get to the photo op room and no longer be the tallest person in the room. Chris the photographer is also super tall so that's delightful. :-) By comparison I'd say Rob Benedict is about 5 8 and Misha is maybe 6 feet tall but maybe 5 11. :-)
Brandon said on 27/Aug/16
5'11.75" is his height
Greg said on 27/Aug/16
@J I know what you mean I'm basically 5'11 in the morning but I drop a fraction under and go to bed at 5'10.5. How old are you by the way? I'm 20 and been done growing since 17. 6'0 is a solid height and I feel like it would be perfect for everything. But 6'2" for me is the ultimate ideal height.
J said on 26/Aug/16
I wish I could grow like him, I used to see him listed at 5'10" or 5'11" and now he's 6'0" (and 6'1" on Google). I'm only 5'10" and used to think I was close to him (we look similar) but I guess I'm more like his kid brother.
TK said on 10/Aug/16
As an avid supernatural fan, I can say jensen is 6'1 next to jared who is 6'4. In the show they where equal boots and this can be seen. At conventions, Jared wears thicker footwear so appears taller
Panda said on 30/Jul/16
Rob are you ever gonna downgrade him (Jensen Ackles)?
From the looks of pictures and comments on this page 5'11.75"/182 cm seems to be a more accurate listing. He could be 5'11.5" at worst but still he should be listed at 182 cm.
Editor Rob: nobody could be exempt from a downgrade...if I see enough evidence that I think one height seems a better fit than the other (a kind of tipping point) then it may be changed.
Andrea said on 24/Jul/16
Rob, is that wrestler really 6'1? Jared looks at least 6'5 there...
Editor Rob: the argument is he could be 6ft only
Dustin said on 23/Jul/16
I think he's bow legged would that effect his height?

Rob show the height scale in the picture please
truth said on 18/Jul/16
Yeah overall he looks 5'11.75-6'0.
Omid said on 15/Jul/16
Rob have you seen this?
Click Here

Collins is closer than Ackles to the camera and both have nearly the same posture, Jared is a bit further and Beaver is the most further from the Jensen 6'0 I can buy, Jared 6'4 I can buy but Collins and Beaver JUST one inch shorter than Ackles?
Editor Rob: in person I really would say they are an inch shorter than ackles looks.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/16
Out of bed: 184-185cm
Before bed: 182-183cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jul/16
Rob, how likely is 180-181cm?
Editor Rob: it is unlikely I'd say. THe lowest I'd guess would be 182, but I feel anywhere in 182-3 is possible, 184 is too much barefoot for him.
Roy said on 30/Jun/16
@Rob,. In the pic above, do you remember if he was wearing the same logger boots that he wears on supernatural? If so those boots have 2" soles and not the normal 1.5" boot soles.
Editor Rob: not as big as 2 inch, but then I didn't know the exact brand and some boots can be thicker than you expect.
Alex said on 29/Jun/16
180/181 cm barefoot, 183 cm with shoes, around 184-185 cm with big boots in Supernatural. He always look a little shorter (about 3 cm) then Stephen Amell..
truth said on 23/Jun/16
Between 182 cm and 183 cm, he is a legit 5'11.75 - 6'0.
TJE said on 21/Jun/16

If you have a lower eyelevel and his eyes were barely above yours then he's the same height as you.
Anon183cm said on 20/Jun/16
I used to think to myself, I'm taller than Jensen Ackles. But actually, if he is 184.5 out of bed and 182-182.5 in the evening, then he is the exact same height as me. I claim 6ft anyway.
jtown said on 19/Jun/16
I can finally speak from experience! I went to a supernatural convention & got pics with him. I'm exactly 5'11" 34. Equal shoes, him in boots me in sneakers. His eye line was barely above mine
& I have a bigger forehead. Pure 6 footer!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jun/16
Rob, could you bring this guy down a tad?
Johan said on 6/May/16

He sometimes looks a legit 6'5" guy ! He hits 6'6" with cowboyboots that he wears regularly or close enough. You can see that with pics next to Jason Momoa and other 6'3"-6'4" guys. He is taller than them.

@Aza That will interest many female readers here.
Aza said on 4/May/16
He is 6'0 in the morning fully erect.
Alex said on 2/May/16

Padalecki claimed his shoe height once, he said to be 6'4 but he looks 6'4 in shoes, so he's 6'3.
c-mo said on 23/Apr/16
Celebheights 6'1.75 said on 12/Apr/16

He looks 5'10" in the above photo (5'9 1/2" if you consider footwear),


NO!!! just NO!!! he doesnt look 5'9.5 - 5'10 in the pic

are you fu**ing serious ? wash your eyes or something
Johan said on 13/Apr/16

Padalecki claims 6'4" and looks more often than not he is 4 inches taller than Ackles so how is he claiming shoe height?

Sometimes its in the 3 inch range but then Ackles has a strong footwear advantage with his logger boots.
Celebheights 6'1.75 said on 12/Apr/16
He looks 5'10" in the above photo (5'9 1/2" if you consider footwear), but he has awful posture in that photo. I think that he's really a bit over 6 feet tall.
Alex said on 12/Apr/16
To be fair, almost everyone claim their shoe height, not only Jensen, the same Padalecki claimed his shoe height.
Johan said on 11/Apr/16
Jensen at 6'3" would put Jared at 6'7" !!

Didn't really think that comment through did you?

I still think he is a 5'11.75" guy who claims shoe height.
Flyin said on 11/Apr/16
181.5 is my 20 minute absolute tops out of bed height. Ankles is leaning in massively. Despite the half inch footwear advantage he makes 183cm. Also remember Rob is a strong 5"8.
Alxr37 said on 10/Apr/16
I think he looks 6ft easily. In the pic he looks tall and he's slouching
S.J.H said on 10/Apr/16
I would argue jensen ackles is not over 5'11.5 and come in worse he could have measure around 181.5cm
MrTatum said on 10/Apr/16
@joe 193cm night "in a matter of beauty Jensen is more beautiful than jared" Who ever mentions beauty when it comes to men? I've heard "Handsome", "Cute"and "Hot", I don't know about "Beautiful". "Beautiful" seems to fit Woman more and "Handsome" would be the closest equivalent for a Man in my opinion.
@Joe Click Here
Alex said on 8/Apr/16
Joe, chill out, Rob is a real gentleman to let you speak, so, shows respect. Jensen around 6'3 what kind of fanboy are you? It is a joke? Maybe you're trolling...
Editor Rob: as I mentioned before that weekend on stage With Alan ritchson he's a couple of inches smaller.
Joe said on 2/Apr/16
The clowns on this site strike yet again lmao. 6' for Jensen Ackles? GTFO. There is photographic evidence of Jensen almost being 6'3 in his mugshot on the show. But I'm sure you fools will just overlook this.
Editor Rob: Minus 0.7 inch of hair, 1.5 inch of boot and camera perspective and you are struggling with 6ft...but you would overlook that right ;)
Frank said on 30/Mar/16
Prime example of somone who's taller than 180cm, but under 183cm. The exact number within that range is impossible to tell unless he is measured in barefeet, or at least without his massive boots that he keeps wearing... Solid height, but not quite enough to be considered tall yet.
Jim Hopper said on 28/Mar/16
Weak 6-0 if he had those 0.5 more footwear on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
I wouldn't argue 181cm. He does look 6ft most of time...
189 cm man said on 17/Mar/16
181-182 range
Nils said on 16/Mar/16
To be honest he appears a solid 6ft on the show next to Jared.
But then you can speculate on the actual footwear advantage he has.
When they pose as agents u can see they use the same shoes.
It seems to me there is atleast 4.5 inches between them then.
Possibly 5 inches.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/16
184.5cm out of bed isn't impossible
yarrakuş said on 6/Mar/16
morning 184 night 182
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/16
If he was really 6ft1, he wouldn't be getting dwarfed by he inflates Jared's height to make his claim look a little more valid
Satchy said on 29/Feb/16
Agree that max erected height is 183 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/16
Jensen Ackles: 182-183cm
Jared Padalecki: 193-194cm
S.J.H said on 10/Feb/16
Don't think much myth happen for jensen's height. People are wasting time here alot. It's likely he was 5'11.75 barefoot and 6'1 with shoes, why not?

Jensen weak 183cm (Solid 182cm)
Jared Padalecki solid and legit 193cm
Aza said on 7/Feb/16
Doesn't look a strong 6ft in the pic with Rob with 0.5 inches shoe advantage. Would guess maximus erectus 71 inches in the evening . Could be 72 inches first thing in the morning.
Alex said on 4/Feb/16
184 cm Ackles in normal shoes? Pretty close. In Supernatural he wears all the time big boots, a good 4 cm of heel. With this boots he seems something like 184-185 cm, nothing more. It's more accurate to say that in normal shoes (2 cm of heel), Ackles is 183 cm, like in the photo with Rob, and 181 cm barefoot.
Danny 1.98m said on 27/Jan/16
Met Jensen and jared and for me they look somewhere near their listed heights.
1.94 jared
1.84 Jensen
That's in normal shoes.
Alex said on 26/Jan/16
6'5 Padalecki? 6'1 Ackles? LOL Jensen is really a funny guy, but really, I think he have some problem to accept his height. Jensen is no more than 180-181 cm without his boots, and no more than a solid 6'3 Padalecki without his boots.
Short AF said on 24/Jan/16
The boots he wears are a solid two inches. Nothing under,
Click Here
The Comment from the manafacturer says the heel is two inches. He wears Chippewa, but most logger boots are the same.

Plus Im 5'7 and I wear these boots and im around 5'9 in them.
I have a pair that I've worn for a year and they're no less then 1.2-1.75inches after wearing them every single day.
Red Wing said on 16/Jan/16

I have a pair of boots in the exact same style (logger boots) that Jensen loves wearing especially when standing near Jared. They definitely give at least a solid 1.75 inches over barefoot, 2 inches if you use a Dr. Scholls work boot insole and not the paper thin one that comes factory standard.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 4/Jan/16
Do you think that Jensen might use lifts ? I mean,I have take a look in random photos and ocasions on him with Jared and he hardly looks 4 inches shorter.Like you said,he always have big boots but Jared also use a big footwear.Maybe he use lifts to look nearer his old claim 185,5-186
Editor Rob: I think he's more just a keen fan of bigger boots than outright lifts. He's certainly worn the 1.75 inch styles at times on the show, and in person the few times I seen him he was in a boot...
Len said on 4/Jan/16
Not seeing the 6'0" in Rob's pic at top, even accounting for the lean. Especially considering Ackles had a bit more footwear than 5-8 Rob.

He's a 5'11" guy, at most. I think Rob got fooled a bit by Ackles' upswept hairdo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jan/16
Weak 6ft: 182-182.5cm lowest
Flat 6ft: 182.5-183cm lowest
Strong 6ft: 183-183.5cm lowest
Judd ISR said on 26/Dec/15
As I said before, IMO Jensen is at his common low point 182,5 cms, so that is enough to classify him as a (weak) 6-footer...

If Rob will downgrade him to 5'11.75" than he will downgrade Nicholas Cage, Tom Hanks and others too...
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 20/Dec/15
@Andrea,please stop trying to downgrade Jensen
Rob has said that he could be a whisker under 6ft but the actual listing is fair.Just take a look in him with Jared.Sometimes he looks 5 inches smaller but others barely 2.Generally 4 inches.Jared is a good example of 6ft 4 and could also measure a tad over like .25 . Jensen at 4 inches smaller like 6ft is fair enough . Just accept the damn listing
Lonestar said on 6/Dec/15
Hes only 5'11.5 and always had 0.25-0.5 more shoe than jared padalecki , so that is why he assume padalecki was about 6feet5 but just a modest 6'4 guy
Andrea said on 29/Nov/15
And since you said that the chances that you meet him again are very low i guess he'll keep his 6' listing, right? 6' is not an awful listing, i'm sure he'd measure that mark at some point of the day (maybe earlier in the day) but 5'11.75 would just be a better listing! Reading the old comments, you said that, comparing him with other people you know, he didn't look under 182! But i also read that you said he had just 0.2 inches more footwear so maybe you thought he had a bit smaller advantage that he actually had ("a good 0.5 inch")! You can argue anywhere in 5'11.5-6' range in his case, but 6' is probably a bit too optimistic and 5'11.5 a bit too low, so 5'11.75 would be a good compromise!
Editor Rob: yes, at one point I found a side on shot of his boots that weekend and they turned out to be thicker than I thought when looking down at them in the photoshoot. Much more like a 1.5 than 1.2 styles.
Andrea said on 28/Nov/15
What do you mean with strong 6' range? If he had 0.5 more footwear and he still gets listed at 6', he should have looked at least as tall as the young chap (who is actually 6' 3/8)!
I ask you because he looks nowhere near 6' in this picture but he obviously must be slouching! I wouldn't say that he COULD fall into the almost 6' range but that he MUST be a weak 6'... You said that a guy like Daniel Cudmore was a very small fraction under 6'7 at worst and he turned out to be 6'6.5, so half an inch under... Do you think that Jensen might be 5'11.5??? I'd just put him at 5'11.75 but maybe on a very bad day he might measure nearer 5'11.5? That's certainly the lowest i'd argue, though!
Editor Rob: anywhere 6ft - 6ft 0.5 range. I'd say 5ft 11.75 is quite an arguable figure, but i'd probably need to see him again.
Andrea said on 27/Nov/15
Rob, without considering the footwear advantage, did he look as tall as the 184 young guy (from the HC)?
Editor Rob: I'd say in the strong 6ft range. To be fair he could fall into the almost 6ft range barefoot, but I doubt really that much under it though.
MalcolmReynolds said on 27/Nov/15
Great actor, it's too bad he can't be honest about his height.
AJ Morales said on 17/Nov/15
Funny. I always thought that he was 186 cm (6 ft 1.25 in).
Although, he still looks very short next to Jared Padalecki.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/15
@Judd ISR: I'd toss A completely. Not convinced he's a strong 6ft guy in the evening. That would make Padalecki 6ft5 or more. He's more likely to dip slightly under 6ft in the evening than stay above it. He could very well be 184-185cm out of bed though so C is probably the best maybe D on a bad day.
Allie said on 10/Oct/15
After looking at his pics with him and Jared, I think he looks more like 5'11.5.

Also, Rob how much height do you think he's losing by leaning? And inch or so?
[Editor Rob: yes about an inch I'd say.]
Andrea said on 8/Oct/15
Rob, i just saw you reloaded old comments and i must say it's quite interesting to see what people (and you too) thought almost 10 years ago... Of course the old mate Viper didn't think he was over 5'11 :)
I just read that you saw him with other people you know and didn't think he was under 182, which is fair, even if the picture doesn't show that at all! You also said at one point that maybe he wore lifts in the show, before meeting him i guess xD
What are the other pages where you put the old comments? I'm curious to see them!
[Editor Rob: I've no idea, as pages get refreshed some comments from mid 2005-9 might appear on the lesser visited pages. Yes, a bunch of old G comments might return as well!

I managed to find a backup of comment data from the 2005-9 era that I could use...other backups had different fields/structure so it never worked the last time I attempted.]
SteelEyeball said on 4/Oct/15
Rob, I have the same boots and they are 2in. I can provide photographic proof, if you'd like.
[Editor Rob: yes, it would be useful to see a tape beside the heel, as it shows how he can walk taller than 6ft on the show at times.]
Judd ISR said on 4/Oct/15
Rob what binomial would fit him better?

A) 185,5cms/183,5cms
B) 185,0cms/183,0cms
C) 184,5cms/182,5cms
D) 184,0cms/182,0cms
[Editor Rob: C-D, somewhere in that is probably more realistic.]
Maximus said on 2/Oct/15
Click Here
There is a picture of the boots he wears on Supernatural. Rob, what would you say the heel is on those?
[Editor Rob: I posted before about them, they definitely can give over 1.5 inches, 1.6 or 1.7 depending on how thick the insole is.

It's why when Misha Collins was wearing vans sneakers jensen could look a solid 2 inches taller.]
Allie said on 1/Oct/15
When you guys say "182" do you guys mean 5'11.5 or 5'11.75? I assume the latter because when people say weak 6 ft, that means a fraction off..
[Editor Rob: it can mean either really]
Aza said on 27/Sep/15
Looks a weak 6 footer.
Josh said on 11/Sep/15
He's leaning in this picture. Standing straight he's probably over 6'1. Take away the boots, he is a solid 6 footer. Nothing more, nothing less.
Andrea said on 30/Aug/15
Naah, 181 I'd be very surprised if he was that low! I think around 182 is fine, he's definitely a weak 6' but can pull off 184 on the show with his thick boots! Ian is a tricky guy, he can certainly look over 176 but he seems a guy who has "grown" through these years, meaning he very likely has worn small lifts at times! As for Jensen i'd be surprised if he was only 181 as much as if he was a full 183! 5'11.75 is a believable range for him!
colin said on 23/Aug/15
rob, don't you think Jensen could be a little under the 6ft mark? Maybe 181cm?
Because next to 5'9.25 Ian he looks at most 5'10 with bad posture

Or do you think that Ian happens to wear enormous mega lifts?
because if that is the case, it's ridiculous
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/15
He was in one season of Smallville...
Panda said on 21/Jul/15
Seems like the general consensus on this page is that Jensen Ackles is more 182 cm. tall so a weak 6'0". Rob maybe you should downgrade him to 5'11.75" (182 cm)? I think that would be a fairer listing for him.
Jenilynn said on 16/Jul/15
I think that both are tall you can look on the television show and see that both Sam and Dean are not short I think that Dean is about 6'1 and Sam is about 6'5 just look at their Surroundings like the car then standing beside it look at the height of the car window. I would really love to meet dean that is my one fantasy in my life
Maximus said on 4/Jul/15
Rob, how was this guy in person? Was he friendly, etc.? Really want to meet him!
[Editor Rob: he was ok way back at the first event, I think in later event he was more tired, although I enjoyed his stage talk more the later time, maybe more confidence and comebacks/banter.]
mike 1.82 said on 1/Jun/15
so let me get this straight, all heights in this page is listed about people with boots or shows, right? because this guy really looks 6ft with shoe or boots

@Judd: Well I'm too tired at the moment for the super precision, but I actually(partly) agree, I used to think like 5'11.87 would be a great listing, of course we can't list 1/8th of an inch or it will scare away causal visitors...

is what i am saying, but i have to give a precision: personally i call 5'11.75" someone who close averagely the day at 182 cms (so that means that his height vary from 182,2 cms to 181,8 cms, like my cousins heigth). A typical example of a 5'11.5" guy is dmeyer, who is averagely in the evening 181,4-181,6 cms.

I think if dmeyer will meet Jensen, the last one would be a little taller, maybe he wouldn't appear it (because it's hard to notice a difference of 1 cms) but if measured i think he would a good 1 cms taller than dmeyer, but he maybe would be 0,5 cms shorter than Alex, who is an example of a "strong" 6', considering that he actually rarely goes under 182,9-183 cms (he could be also listed at 6'0.25").

As you can say, "Dmeyer is a legit/honest/flat 5'11.5" or a weak 5'11.75" and Alex is a strong 6'0" or a weak 6'0.25" guy", then we can say that Jensen is "a very strong 5'11.75" or a weak/flat 6'0" guy".
As i said before, IMO he rarely dip under 182,5 cms but he often goes under 183,0 cms, just by a few mms...His range, IMO is 182,5-183,0 cms...5'11.75" is too modest, 6' is the end he's still listed at 6'0" so that means that rob, who MET him and has a good talent to guess heights, still consider him a 6 footer...

Unfortunately, we will never know the precisely height of Jensen, but i think that between him and Jared, who's a flat 6'4" guy, there're AVERAGELY 4"...just one picture doesn't mean anything: i've a picture with me next to a my friend, who's 190 cms, so precisely 3 cms taller than me. If you see me and him together, you can notice the difference, but we have a couple of pictures together where we look the same height and just one picture where i look a tad taller than him...
Sam said on 13/May/15
Looks about 6ft in the picture w/ the 0.5 footwear advantage, so 5ft11.5 is a possibility but it looks like he's leaning a bit compared to Rob so that could make him look shorter.

But it's true, he really can look a true 6 footer, independent of footwear. But the question of his thick boots he loves wearing hangs a cloud over him; often the question is whether he's getting 1.5 or 18 from his boots... In pretty much every comparison, though, he's, worst case, 5ft11.5, beat case 6ft. Pretty much always.

But all I was saying was that, I just think saying 5ft11.75 was too "modest" was just factually and statistically inaccurate, since his range is 5'11.5-6ft, in the middle isn't really conservative. I mean everyone agrees he's no over 6ft. I mean maybe 183cm flat, sure you can argue that, but since he's clearly not 183cm+, I just don't see how listing him 181.3 can be "conservative" if his rang is anywhere 188-182.8...

But I agree with other stuff you say... Like I stick with a good 4 inches between him and Jarrd, not 4.5 or more.
Judd said on 11/May/15
andrea, i've seen the pictures that you posted and also the video and actually i think 4" between Jared and Jensen is enough...Jensen is at worts at Jared's eyebrown level and sometimes even a bit taller...
thats an example of a distance between a 182 cms guy (Sam Neill) and a 193,5-194 cms (Jeff Goldblum): Click Here
the difference is more revelant...6' is fine for Jensen, IMO...
Judd said on 10/May/15
however andrea, i agree about the comparison Affleck-Damon, but you need to consider that Affleck is a tricky guy.
In Armageddon (1998), next to Bruce Willis he did look 6'1 if Willis was at times 5'11.5" (as rob said and i believe). I think however that Willis in that movie probably wore lifts, because he was at least half inche taller than William Fitchner (who i suppose is 5'11.5") and at least 2" taller than B.B. Thornton, and it's plausible that also Damon wear lifts, also because i don't think he could be taller than 5'10 in any case.
Definetly Affleck in a lot of occasions does look not a properly 6'2, but i am sure that if measured in the late afternoon he would be a flat 6'2" or 188 cms guy.
Maybe the 6'2.25" that rob gave him is a bit overestimated, but next to actors like Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman, Henry Cavill and Uma Thurman he showed to be 6'2...

Regarding Ackles, as i said a lot of times 6' IMO is a valid listing...
you don't forget that in this website ther're much more 6-footer than 5'11.75" guy, but for sure, considering that across the countries, the average height is 5'8-5'9, there would be more 182 cms than 183 cms, if the distribution of height is a normal-gaussian...
A lot of actors whose rob listed at 6' are IMO instead flat 182 cms or even less. Any examples? Christian Bale (5'11.75" instead 6'), Ernie Hudson (peak 5'11.5" instead 6'), Edward Norton (5'11.75" instead 6'), Terence Stamp (peak 5'11-11.5" instead 6')...
and others are maybe a tad taller than their listings, for example IMO Famke Janssen is more 5'11.75" than 5'11.5"...
What i think is that a variance of + or - 0,25" is acceptable and we will never know how tall is actually Jensen Ackles...
Judd said on 10/May/15
add: Lorne???, Andrea

i repeat again, that i never ruled out the 5'11.75" listing. I've also said that in my opinion an honest 5'11.75" is someone who wakes up at 184 cms (so in the range 184,2-183,8 cms for precision lovers) and close the day at 182 cms (182,2-181,8) honest 5'11.5" is someone who wakes up at 183,5 and go bed at 181,3-181,5 cms, like Dmeyer's low range.

Kept this in mind, i also said that in my opinion Ackles could close the day (on a normal day), at 182,5 cms, being very close to 6' (so 182,7-8 cms on a good day), and close to 182,3-4 cms on a worst day (I'm just applying my proportions to his case, but maybe for him the variance is more or less relevant).
So he can be considered more than a flat 5'11.75" or a weak 6'.
Dmeyer, for example is in the same conditions, but with 1 cms less: he's an honest/perfect example of 5'11.5", and he's averagely in the afternoon 181,5 cms...if you think in meters, then he could arbitrarily claim 181 cms or 182 cms.
If he's prudent he will claim 181 cms, but he will underestimate himself, if he will claim 182 cms then he will overestimate a small fraction himself, but probably if he will stay next to two people, one who's 181 and the other 182, then you will never notice the difference.
Same for Jensen: i think he's in the middle, so 182,5 cms at lowest would be his perfect listing.

the matter os that, given a sample of 100 people, maybe the 90% at 182,5 cms will claim 6'+ (like 6'1 or even 6'1.5") and a small percentage will round up a bit to 6', but i think nobody will claim 5'11.75".

If you want that Ackles's listing will be 5'11.75" instead 6', then you will make a petition to rob to downgrade him a bit...XD

Before bed: 182cm-182.5cm

I agree, 5'11.75" would be a too modest listing...i think he could reach 182 cms but rarely, only after an hard long day...6' is fair at the end, IMO...

Heh, 5ft11.75 is not a "modest" listing. 5ft11.5 would be more modest, since it's certainly not impossible, but probably the worst he could be. 6ft I generous, so 5ft11.75 is really the fairest listing.

He could very well be 182.5 evening, in which case 6ft is just fine to list him at. But then I wouldn't completely rule out 11.5 either, so really 11.75 is probably the most fair, and certainly not modest, s you say.
Andrea said on 8/May/15
Judd, again, look at the pictures i've posted on 10 october 2014... After you've looked these pictures, type on google "Ben Affleck Matt Damon" and tell me that's about the same difference... That is supposed to be a 4.25 inch difference! If anything, Ben looks 2-3 inches taller than Ben in many photos, never 4.25! Also, i invite you to visit Grant Bowler's page where you can see him with Joe Manganiello... That would be a 5 inches difference, in Rob's opinion! And Grant is comfortably above Joe's eyebrows!

Andrea says on 7/May/15
First of all, Judd, Jensen does wear big shoes msot of the time on Sup... So, as i said, he can certainly look over 6' on the show but that does not mean he really is barefoot! He does look minimum 4.25 inches shorter than Jared, IMO! There's plenty of celebrities listed 4 inches apart who easily look closer in height than J and J! See a Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, for example! They look closer in height than these guys and Ben is supposed to be 4.25 inches taller! Rob himself said he looked a weak 6' with Alan and Justin... I've asked him many times to downgrade him to a more "realistic" 5'11.75, but there are many celebrities who probably will never change on here! More than that, i can't say anything! I personally have him at 5'11.75...

I am not interested to make a controversy about the height of Jensen. I respect your opinion, even if i do not agree with you at 100%.
I think I have some experience with 182 cms tall people; as I said before, my cousin is 182 cms tall, measured in the evening more than once by me against a wall in regular conditions, so I have no doubt that there may be a variance of + or - 1 cms ...
From the pictures I have seen, I think Jensen is in the range of 6 ', if we assume that Padalecki is 6'4, Pillegi 6'0.5 "...
The chance that he's, barefoot, 182 cms is always open, because it is true often it brings big shoes ... despite what, with similar shoes in my opinion making a comparison-Ackles Padalecki, for example, I seem to see 4 "of difference, not more or less ...
however, we will never know his exact height, unless it is measured by rob personally (and I doubt it), and whereas he claims to be 185 cms tall!

Click Here
in this picture, for example, also if the prospective isn't the best, I don't see more than 4 strong inches between they, and for sure Ackles hasn't a shoes advantage...
Judd said on 7/May/15
of course, the matter is that unless a person does not keep an excellent posture, it is very difficult to notice a difference which can be maximum by 1 cms!
From that picture, it's hard to know if Benedict is 182 cms or 183 cms precisely...for sure he's in the 6' zone, that's a certainity

Andrea says on 6/May/15
I don't think he rarely reaches 182 like you say, Judd. I think he "regularly" would be 182-182.5 in the evening and might even dip a bit below 182 on a very bad day! I think 5'11.75 would be a perfect listing for him!!! I doubt he wears lifts, but he does wear boots on Supernatural so he can pull off looking taller than he is next to the others but he's a weak 6' guy barefoot... Rob, since you finally have downgraded Ben Cumberbatch, what about fixing this listing too? Come on, 5'11.75 is fairer for Jensen.
[Editor Rob: well it's not impossible but generally I think he is close to the mark.
Cumberbatch I've seen more up close, more than Ackles now.]

actually i am not sure he's a 182 cms guy.
as i said before, my cousin is an honest 182 cms, because he close the day at 181,9-182,1 cms, and on a bad day he dip to 181,8 cms, he told me (maybe his perfect listing would be in feet, 5'11.65").
He does look a little shorter than a typical 184 cms guy and he looks much shorter than a 193 cms guy...
Ackles except rarely times, does look 4" shorter than Padalecki, but not more...

as i said before, IMO on a good day he's 182,8-183 cms, and on a bad day he would be 182,5 cms...
however, we're talking about 0,5 cms...XD

About Cumberbatch, i agree that in a couple of movies he does look more 182 cms than 183 cms, however next to rob he has a terrible's hard to judge his height by that picture...
[Editor Rob: Benedict's got a head tilt but was actually standing pretty good...

Ackles is tricky as I never seen him without boots at the 2 cons...5ft 11.75 may also turn out his barefoot height...
Andrea said on 7/May/15
Lol, just a "not impossible"? Come on, look at him with Alan Ritchson, Justin Hartley, Jared Padalecki, Tom Welling... He does look a weak 6' with all of them, unless they're underlisted! It's certainly much more "possible" than a full 6'! I'd be suprised if he measured 6' or very near it by the end of the day, really!

my young cousin is an honest and measured 182 cm guy (he drop sometimes under 182,0 cms, but never under 181,8 cms at night) and he does look visibly shorter than people who measure 184 cms and/or 185 cms and people 6'4" tall show to have a good chunk on him (i have a friend who is 6'4" and my cousin's top head is a tad under the top point of his ears).
I don't know if Ackles wears lifts, but next to people like Mitch Pileggi (184 cms today) and Jared Padalecki (193 cms) he does look a tad taller than what would be an honest 182 cms guy like my cousin...
IMO Ackles is averagely 182,5-183 cms in the evening, and sometimes (rarely) he drops to 182,2-3 cms...

@Andrea: I have skipped around a bit, I mean I've seen most of the first seven seasons now, but have missed chunks of them, like there are actually several episodes from the first season, and still some from seasons 4-5, I haven't seen. But I've seen most o the first 7 seasons. Around the time of Krackens, it lost kinda lost my interest. However I have been watching the final season, and did watch the last few episodes of season 9(on tv) just to have an idea of what was going on.

But yeah, it's funny you mention that, about the series going downhill after season 5; you know the creator( and show runner/ executive producer the first five seasons) only intended the series run for 5 years. He wanted things to conclude with the lucifer storyline. Of course the show is/was popular, so they kept it going, but without his direct involvement. And the series did change a bit after that.

But I must say, there are some excellent episodes in season 6, in fact, two of my favorites, "the French connection", being one of them, are in season 6. It has a lot of very funny meta episodes. Season 7 had some memorable episodes as well, however the overall plot of the season, and the general feel of the show(including the dialogue) really took a nosedive during that time... Really I just didn't like the Krackens, at all. But I highly recommend watching season 6, it was solid,

But seasons 8-9, I haven't really watched apart from a few scattered here and there. This final season(season 10) which is airing now, has had a couple of good episodes, but honestly, has been a bit underwhelming, for a final season...
Andrea said on 17/Apr/15
Rampage, i wouldn't put him under 182 but what i am saying is that i wouldn't be surprised if he dipped a little below 182 on a bad day! I would be much more surprised if he measured 6' at his low, granted that as i said many times he can look over 6' on Sup thanks to his big boots!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Apr/15
He doesn't drop below 182cm. I'm in favour of a weak 6ft but no less. Generally he looks a nailed on 6ft guy. Omundson I think is a strong 6ft, maybe close to 184cm.
Andrea said on 12/Apr/15
I've not seen him with Omundson, to be fair (and never heard of that guy before actually)... Which season are you at, Lorne? I think that after season 5 the show got worse and worse and i'm kinda "stuck" at the end of the season 7 from months... Anyway, i do totally agree with you, Jensen is a weak 6' guy, if i were Rob i'd go with a 5'11.75 listing and he himself said he looked that range with Alan Ritchson and Justin Hartley! I think he might be a guy who is 182-182.5 on a normal day and could even be nearer 5'11.5 on a bad one (that's the lowest i'd argue though)...
Lorne??? said on 11/Apr/15
He's not 6ft with Omundson himself claiming that...

I still think he's close, but I am now 100% in favor of a downgrade to 182cm
Johnny said on 10/Apr/15
More like a weak 6ft ( 182cm ) ... even 181cm wouldnt come as a surprise to me

I guess most people noticed the massive boots he is wearing by now -> In season 4 ep 8 of supernatural there is a scene where Jensen sits next to jared and one has a good shot of how disproportionate his legs are wearing said boots. ( Even his knee-level is the same height as 6'4 (193cm) Jared's when he's sitting, making it even more notciable just how much height he gains from his shoes)

I dont blame him though, its the classic 3-4cm lie that actors tell when it comes to height - If I was him, Id probably do the same
Judd said on 7/Apr/15
[Editor Rob: certainly not 0.5 thin styles, maybe 1-1.2 range.]

actually rob i think everything under 5'11.5-11.75" is unbelievable for him.
personally i think he might be a true 6' guy, or even at least 182,5 cms at very lowest... I think he does look a little taller than a flat 182 cms guy...he doesn't look much shorter than guy like Mitch Pileggi (with similar shoes) who are taller than 6' and he (the most of times) does look no more than 4" shorter than Padalecki, who's an honest 6'4"...actually, except some rare pictures, i don't see 4.5" between they but maximum 4"...

6' is fair, IMO...

Jensen almost always has thick soles and a heel on his boots, in the show. Jar3d may as well be wearing slippers, because the boots he usually wears have very thin soles. On top of that, Jensen always has perfect posture and is usually in the foreground. I say he's 5'11.-6'.

Id day he doesnt appear to have the proportions of a 6'1" guy but thats isnt always accurate. Just look at henry cavill. I was shocked to see him next to Ben Affleck. His build relative short arms made him look 5'10" in MoS.

i think that jensen is either a weak 6' or a solid 182cm.Jared looks like a solid 6'4.

Andrea says on 22/Nov/14

He does clear 6'1 in his boots (which are usually 1.5-1.75 inches range), IMO! You can argue 5'11.75 or a 5'11.5 at worst for him, the full 6' is just a bit optimistic... I repeat, on SPN he can easily pull off 184 but he always wears thick boots! 182 range is perfect for him! And don't base your guess on this pic with Rob because it clearly doesn't show his real height!

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/Nov/14

182cm is closer. If he was a legit 6ft he'd be clearing 6ft1 in boots. I'd say standing tall he's probably just over 6ft

Lurker says on 15/Nov/14

C'mon, Rob, Jensen can't be at Jared's eyelevel and be only 4 inches shorter. Either Jared is an inch taller, or Jensen is an inch shorter. 90% of the photos of them show the same thing.

[Editor Rob: on the show he can go from his eyelevel to 1 inch above it.]

Andrea says on 12/Nov/14

Great, man! ;)

You gotta admit that in all the pics i've posted, he does look more than just 4 inches shorter than Jared... Yeah, Jensen can look a solid 183-184 man in the show with his boots but i would say his range is more 182 rather than 183! 5'11.75 would be a perfect listing, with 5'11.5 not impossible (that's the lowest i'd argue). On the other hand, Jared always does look a strong 6'4, with everyone!!! In fact i'd list him at 6'4.25 rather than 6'4 flat!

MaraV says on 10/Nov/14

This guy can't be 6'1lol 3 inches don't make that kind of difference that shows when he is next to Padalecki at the most he is between 5'8 to 5'10 he looks like Rodney Downey Jr.'s height

I dunno Andrea I've really not seen them together much. I think I saw an interview a while back with the two of them sitting down. I always thought Padalecki looked aa strong 6'4" guy and thought than 6'4" flat was undercooking him a tad though.

when seen in good shots in supernatural with same footwear hes really around Jareds eye level, and same in pics outside supernatural.

There are for sure atleast 4 good inches between those guys!

Andrea says on 12/Oct/14

So, in almost every picture you find on the net, where Jensen is at Jared's eyelevel (sometimes even lower), what happened? Maybe Jared is paying the photographers for appearing even taller than he is? I'd understand if there was only a few photos showing 4.5 inches differences but it seems in almost every photo Jensen is at least 4.5 inches shorter! And, hey, Jensen is also at least 3 solid inches shorter than Tom Welling! Come on, after downgrading a guy Lance Reddick, you should review many of the listings on here!

[Editor Rob: almost every? I wouldn't say that based on what I've seen, and I'm listing Lance at what he's claimed twice.]

Andrea says on 11/Oct/14

Hell, after all the pics i've posted, you still think there are only 4 inches? More than that, i don't know what to do, it seems you're really "stuck" on some listings and there's noway to change your mind... At this point, any discussion is quite useless...

[Editor Rob: I've seen them up close in person, and on stage together, so my guess on that is 4-4.25 between them.]

Andrea says on 10/Oct/14

I wouldn't base your guess on Sup! I am the first to say that in Sup he can look a solid 183-184 guy next to Jared! Jensen himself said in some interviews that they make him look taller than he is because Jared is very tall or something like that! Please take a look at "out-of-set" pictures:

Jensen is always at Jared's eyelevel and sometimes even lower... And he also tends to wear bigger shoes! Noway is Jensen as tall as Big Alex unless Jared is a solid 6'4.5 (which he can look with Zachary Levi, if Zach is really 6'3.25)...

[Editor Rob: I've seen them on stage a few times, I guess you could say Jensen might be 11.75 if jared is 6ft 4 flat, but I wouldn't have said it looked 4.5 inches in person, both had boots on.]

Andrea says on 10/Oct/14

Rob, you can't have Jensen at 6' and Jared at 6'4... I think anyone would agree that there are more than just 4 inches flat between them... If Jared is only 6'4, this guy is no more than 5'11.75 and could even be as low as 5'11.5 on a bad day!

[Editor Rob: jenny's been rewatching the show from the beginning and I've been dipping in and out, I would guess 4-4.25 inches difference from when they are known to be in more equal footwear like normal shoes.]

184.3cm says on 9/Oct/14

I give him 182cm since his boots are so much thicker. Passes for a 6 footer with boots on.

cole says on 6/Oct/14

@Editor Rob: Why not go with 5'11.5 or 5'11.75 if he (with a footwear advantage) obviously looks 2in shorter than 6'2 guys?

Having a hard time seeing how he'd look more than 4in taller than you even if he stood tall in the pic as well.

mike says on 5/Oct/14

Jensen: 6ft 0.25in 184 cm

Jared: 6ft 4.25in 194 cm

Misha: 5ft 11in 180 cm

Jim: today: 5ft 10-10.5in 178-179 cm peak: 5ft 11in 180 cm

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Oct/14

I wouldn't class 184-185cm as well over 6ft

184.9 on a bad day says on 18/Sep/14

Rob, when you say ''just over 6ft'' is like 184-185, sorry for stupid question but I'm familarizade with metric system.

[Editor Rob: more like in 183-4cm range, a 184-5 is too much for me to class as just over 6ft.]

184.9 on a bad day says on 16/Sep/14

Rob I'm totally lost too hahaha, her beautiful face (Lauren) makes me out of my mind. I don't know why I asked on that page lol.

[Editor Rob: Lauren looked better I think with long hair 5-6 years ago. I actually thought with shorter hair it didn't suit her well...of course she is still very attractive, so it's more just a personal preference to women with long hair.]

Judd says on 13/Sep/14

I think he's closer to 6' than 5'11"...if today Mitch Pillegi is 6'0.5 then Jensen is 5'11.5"-6'...

184.9 on a bad day says on 11/Sep/14

Rob, She stands at what height in these heels ?

Click Here

[Editor Rob: well I paused the clip at 15 seconds and had a good long hard look....erm, yeah what was the question?

I think she would measure just over 6ft in them, they are a legitimately large sized heel with solid 2-inch platform.]

Andrea says on 30/Aug/14

He certainly is not a big 6' guy! I mean, he looks a weak 6' there, with Tom Welling, with Jared Padalecki,... Rob, a 5'11.75 is "too much"? I think it's quite clear he's not a guy like Big Alex!

Kostas says on 25/Aug/14

How tall do you think Alan Ritchson is Rob? He only looks 1' taller than Jensen here.

Click Here

[Editor Rob: at that event Ritchson was a good couple of inches taller...he is further away and leaning more loosely there. Here on stage you can see what it looked like in person.]

lelman says on 15/Aug/14

He looks more 5'11" to me, I get that he's slouching, but if you account for his boots, hair, and small forehead, he struggles to look three inches taller than you.

Realist says on 29/Jul/14

Right ROb 6'0 seems spot on.

TJE says on 25/Jul/14

Looks 5'11.5 with Jared Padalecki

Click Here

John says on 23/Jul/14

Time passes and I am increasingly convinced that only a photo with Jensen (without his boots) will reveal his true height. We need someone who knows where he lives and where to meet him then.

Giuseppe says on 4/Jul/14

I too believe that he did not get to 6 feet.

Alex 6'0 says on 29/Jun/14

I can't see him at 6'0. Even if he stood straight he still had 1/2 inch footwear advantage. 5'11.5 Id give him

Lee says on 28/Jun/14

182cm in my opinion, he wears pretty massive boots on the show which gives him an advantage over others and yet never looks a legit 6ft flat.. though he still tall enough to round up to 6ft of course but his 6'1 claim is just hilarious

as for weight Id say 175 pounds or ~80kg

mike says on 25/Jun/14

5ft 11.75 (182.5 cm ) night 6ft 0.75 (184.5 cm) morning 6ft 0 is a good listening.

Realist says on 22/Jun/14

Seems right, rob is just under his eye. 5'8 guys just about reach eyes of legit 6'0 guys.

cole says on 21/May/14

If he stood straight with Rob he might look 6ft, minus the footwear advantage he's more 5'11.5 I recon. Cumberbatch would probably measure a teensy bit closer to the 6ft mark than this guy, but neither looks like full 6 footers next to Rob in their respective pictures.

Pallin 185 cm says on 23/Apr/14

I'm 6'1" and work with guys WHO are 6'4". And the height difference is not worth questioning.. If jensen were 6'1" we would not even discuss this. Plus he always wear 3 cm boots and still looks short compare to Jared . If a 6'1" guy would wear 3 cm boots he would stand really tall , so what's the gag about ?

chelio says on 15/Apr/14

for the longest time i thought he was like 5'6 , 5'7 because his supernatural partner is really tall. thanks for making it clear

Hypado says on 8/Apr/14


Andrea says on 4/Apr/14

Rob, how much difference you think there is on here?

Click Here

Jensen looks a bit more than just 4 inch shorter (and they gotta have similar shoes in this case), even if sometimes can be hard to judge heights on a stage, i know... Btw, how tall is the long haired guy? six one range? He looks a couple inches taller than Adam Levine and about 3 inches shorter than Jared...

[Editor Rob: I think about 4 inches is probable, a bit more?? Not impossible, but I wouldn't say much more, the other guy can look near 6ft1]

freddy says on 28/Mar/14


he lies like almost all actors do when it comes to height, I can buy 6'4 range for jared, but unless jensen wears his massive-manheel boots, he is nowhere near 6'1 ....181-182cm barefeet

talented actors though, both jared and jensen

Balrog says on 26/Mar/14

Rob who left you a taller impression, Jensen or Benedict Cumbertach?

[Editor Rob: hard to tell, but Jensen did have a much more noticeable footwear advantage the time I seen him.]

Linda says on 21/Mar/14

But.. on an interview he says he's 6'1 and Jared 6'4.

freddy says on 21/Mar/14

5'11.5 range seems spot on (181-182cm) - his massive boots that he likes to wear boost him to 6'1 range

TanToes says on 26/Feb/14

Jensen wins out as an actor and definitely attractiveness.

And this comes from a gal who is tall

and normally tall trumps all else.

Jared needed his legs in braces when you ger to correct the noticeable bow (just as I needed a corrective brace for my spine.Would be even taller but would have avoided a LOT of pain then and now).

pick tall over

ayo says on 2/Feb/14

181-182cm range...

Triplescrew says on 24/Jan/14

Misha Collins - 5'10"

Jensen Ackles - 5'11.5"

Jared Padalecki - 6'4"

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/Jan/14

Maio, that's probably spot on. Dips just under 6ft at the end of a regular day.

I would definitely label Jared Padelacki as a strong 6ft4 guy, if not 6ft4.5/194cm.

dream says on 3/Jan/14

In a dark angel episode they say 6ft.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Dec/13

Ackles can look 5ft11 at times aswell

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Dec/13

"likely a fraction under 5'12"

Please speak English. Anyway, Beaver at anything over his listed 5ft11/180cm is unlikely. He looked about 5ft10 w/h Rob and Jenny and I mean just possibly even a fraction below it. Ackles in general looks around 5ft11-6ft

Lo sgozzatore says on 5/Dec/13

If Amell is really six one, then Ackles looks about six feet but that's not a very good picture (see how Ackles is closer to the camera). He's definitely a weak 6', i agree! I think Amell might measure somewhere between 6'0.5 and 6'1, he always has very good posture so he can look taller than he measures. About this Alexis Denisof? I actually don't even know who he is, i only saw his pic but i've never seen that face before xD

Lo sgozzatore says on 26/Nov/13

4.5 inches is not impossible, he can look 4.5 inches shorter, yeah... Wheter he is or not, it's hard to say. As you say Jared is a strong 6'4 for sure, 6'4-6'4.25 is his range, i think. So it could be the case that Jensen is 5'11.5-5'11.75 and Jared 6'4-6'4.25 and there you go your 4.5 inches... I repeat i don't think he's under 5'11.5, though. I think he's somewhere between 182 and 183. Jared could be between 193 and 194. He's a very tall guy, so Jensen could appear shortish sometimes but he's not, he's quite tall, near the 6' mark. About Cranston and Paul, yeah, Paul can look shorter than 172, but he does have pretty bad posture in many scenes. I think that if he stood straight for a measurement, he really would be near the 5'8 mark.

Balrog says on 25/Nov/13

And also in the rare occasions when Misha Collins and Ackles has same footwear, Misha can look near Ackles height...

Balrog says on 25/Nov/13

I agree with you guys but you really think Padalecki just has 4in on Jensen? When they both suited up as FBI's agent I always see 4.5" in difference near 5in between those two.

Lo sgozzatore says on 25/Nov/13

Yeah, i agree with you, Lorne. 5'10 is ridicolous,noway he's that short! Better chance he's 6'1 than 5'10 actually... This listing is ok, as you said, he can easily look 184 on Supernatural, but he does wear big boots, always! I'm at the end of the fifth season and i've seen some scenes of him with Mark Sheppard, he looks about 4 inches taller, easily. Rob met Sheppard and listed him at 5'8.5, so even if he's probably not a full 6', he's gotta be near that! In those boots, he's gotta be between 6'1 and 6'2 for sure.

dennis 184cm says on 23/Nov/13

Jensen is wearing Boots and so does jared in the later seasons , but jensen is still almost a head shorter than Jared . So his 6'1 claim can't be anything but a dream . 182 max with Boots. A 6'1 Guy compared with a 6'4 Guy ain't that big as those two have in the series

Lo sgozzatore says on 21/Nov/13

He never looks 7 or even 6 inches shorter than Jared, never! Yeah, there are some scenes where he can look almost 5 inches shorter but there are other scenes where he also can look only 3-3.5 inches shorter than Jared! I dont buy anything under 5'11.5 for him and i do think he's a legit 182-183 guy. Near 6' fits him

Tony says on 15/Nov/13

On the supernatural episode that Dean and Sam go back to their old highschool. Dean becomes the gym teacher and wears flat shoes, in the hallway seen when they are walking Jared had 6 to 7 inches on Jensen. 5'10 handsomness always adds 2 inches

Lo sgozzatore says on 7/Nov/13

After seeing 4 seasons of Supernatural, i think i can safely say he can look a solid 184 guy on the show with other actors! There are many scenes where he looks only 3-3.5 inches shorter than solid 6'4 Jared Padalecki! He also can look 4 cms taller than 5'11 guys like Misha Collins or Jim Beaver... But i must say that he always wears big boots which are no less than 1.5-1.75, so he can look taller than he is! 182-183 fits him!

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Nov/13

Lorne's right. He's definitely not a 184cm range guy except out of bed, maybe. But he's not a 180cm guy either. At night he could be a flat 182cm, but no less.

"Jensen Ackles's height is 5ft 11.75in (182cm)"

miko says on 30/Oct/13

182cm would be bang on for this guy.

Lo sgozzatore says on 28/Oct/13

Yeah, definitely not over 6' but 5'11 is too low, even considering his big boots! "near" 6' is ok...

HellBoundPower says on 27/Oct/13

People keep claiming that Jensen wears boots and Jared wears sneakers, but in the latest season they are both wearing boots and the height difference only looks to be about 3 inches. So either Jensen is legit 6'1", or he has a little boost in his boots.

Lorne says on 25/Oct/13

Yeah, he's not a big 6 footer for sure, not like a David Duchovny or Edi Gathegi, as mentioned. But he could be very close, I could see him measuring 182-182.5, 181.5 not impossible, as you said, he doesn't wear the monster type boots Vin Diesel does, and looks just as tall(to me taller) so it could be a matter of him just a small fraction under, like a Christian Bale. And Lo, yeah he even can look 3.5in under at times than Welling, but never seen him in equal footwear, one of them always in boots, but I know Welling stands around 194cm in timberland style, and was no way 4 inches taller than Ackles in trainers, so under 5'11.5 an impossibility, he stands better with Welling than Aaron Ashmore, whom Rob met and gives 5ft11.5, so I CAN live with 6ft, since he might measure 5'11 7/8ths, and then what do you do? :) But 5ft11.75 the fairest, but Rob must have thought he was damn close to 6ft, or wouldn't give it to him.

Iceman says on 24/Oct/13

5'11" is certainly possible for Jensen, his boots are big. I wouldn't be surprised if he was getting 1.5 inches from them. I think 5'11.5" is more likely. He's definitely not over 6'0". Could be close to 6'1" in his big boots.

Balrog says on 21/Oct/13

5'11.5"-6'0" is his range, he does wears boots a lot but not Vin Diesel's type of boot just normal boots. To me there is really no chance he is a full 6footer because he doesn't look that next to Welling, Hartley, Padalecki and Ritchson. Also Edi Gathegi edge out him and Edi his a strong 6footer.

Lo sgozzatore says on 20/Oct/13

Agree in everything ;)

5'11 flat is not something i'd bet on for sure! I would list him at 5'11.75 too but 6' is ok too. The only thing you gotta keep in mind when you see him listed at 6' is that it is his best case scenario! I am sure that he is not a millimiter over it. BTW, he looks 3 solid inches shorter than Tom Welling...

Lorne says on 19/Oct/13

Yeah he is most definently NOT a big 6 foot guy! But I'm just saying, this 180-181cm stuff is goofy, his boots aren't that big, and he wears regular shoes a lot. I too think 5'11.5 is possible, but it's the worst case scenario. And I wouldn't "list" him 5ft11.5, if I was Rob I might go 5ft11.75(which again could be spot on) but not 5ft11.5, since it's the minimum and they're is no good evidence. Yeah, Ackles is a tough one, depending on footwear, at times he's nearly 5 inches under Padalecki, at others 3-3.5, but generally he looks 6ft, like you just said, 6ft11.75-6ft, with 5ft11.5 possible. Glad you don't think he's 5'11 flat!

Lo sgozzatore says on 17/Oct/13

I just started to watch Supernatural and yeah he looks near 6' on the show. There are some scenes with Jared Padalecki where he can look only 3-3.5 inches shorter, but there are also some scenes where he looks between 4 and 5 inches shorter. Near 6' is right but that's not what you'd call a strong 6', considering he always wears big boots. I agree with you, Lorne. In my opinion 5'11.5 is not impossible, but i'd say he's in the 5'11.75-6' zone.

Giuseppe says on 17/Oct/13

I agree with you George, also according to Rob, Mitch Pileggi is 184 cm. Take a look at this picture:

Click Here

Lorne says on 17/Oct/13

I dob't understand why everyone think's he's 5'11, the man honestly looks 6ft moist of the time, even with 4-4.5 cm boots looking legit 184, he's closer to six then 5'11. I mean, just look at the guy: 1. He is always 2cm over Rosenbaum(without boots!), Rob has met Michael Rosenbaum, no way he's less than 5'11, Rob has him at 181cm, but he could be 180.5, anyway, Ackles looks basically the same as legit 6footer John Glover. Speaking of Glover , him and Ackles look identical face to face, but it wasn't a great scene to compare, and I think peak Glove would measure marginally taller. 2. With Tom Welling(who eats 6ft claims for breakfast!) he has footwear disadvantage, regular trainers, with Tom in boots, don't know if 1.5'ers, but he had advantage. Welling 6'4 in boots, and and was not 4 inches over Tom, maybe 3.5 most, but honestly he looks close to 6'1, so near 6ft barefoot. Dj Qualls was in boots himself and difn't looks much taller. I'm not saying he's a big 6 footer, but he's damn close. 5'11.5 is ABSOLUTE MINIMUM, I think he'd measure 182, maybe 182.5 evening, anywhere 5'11.6-5'11.8, you could say 5'11.9, basically 6ft, this listing is fine, maybe 5'11.75 is better(in fact it probably spot on) but not less.

Tyler says on 15/Oct/13

I think his height is altered due to his bow legs. They cause his posture to change a lot, thus increasing and decreasing his height seen in photos (same case with Tom Hardy). Plus with his thick boots, it's really hard to definitely pin down, but I'd say that he's a good 6'0.5" feet tall.

George says on 10/Oct/13

I met him at Comic Con, he's a solid 5 ft 11 with boots (he was with sneakers, meaning around 5 ft 10 3/4), I'm 5 ft 8 (just like Rob), however I add an inch more with my posture. We were basically on the same eye level. I was just as surprised he's so short, I always thought he's 185 or more. My guess is: either boots lift him a lot, or he has shrinked since 2007. Simply compare him to 5 ft 11 Misha Collins and Jim Beaver. Click Here

What do you think Rob, is their some insole or boot magic going on there?

[Editor Rob: it's rare to see him without thick boots at events, but one thing I'm sure of - he ain't no 6ft 1 man!]

roy says on 7/Oct/13

181cm is my bet, pretty sure the 185cm claim is exactly his height when wearing those thick shoes he always likes to wear

Joe says on 2/Oct/13

I think Jensen Ackles is precisely 5ft11, because I have a friend who is exactly 6ft3(same as Jared) and we both look in the same range as Jensen and Jared.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Sep/13

He might be fraction under this.

I doubt 5ft11 flat though

Lo sgozzatore says on 29/Aug/13

Rob, who do you think would be taller between Alex and Ackles, that you both met? I'm pretty sure that Alex would win and i wouldnt be surprised at all if he was 1 good cm taller!

[Editor Rob: alex might be a little taller.

certainly that weekend on stage with hartley/ritchson he looked a weak 6ft guy]

Rusty says on 27/Aug/13

I was just about to say something but Balrog said it for me. How did he get a 190cm listing? Cuz i am just a smidge over 190cm at my very lowest after a long day and I would look much taller than this next to Rob

Balrog says on 21/Aug/13

The four letter site has Ackles now at 6' 2" (1.90 m) which is absolutely ridiculous. In that case Padalecki should be 6'7''.

Lorne! says on 19/Aug/13

Yeah, Balrog, he's not a strong 6ft, for sure. I think 5ft11.75 might be spot on, but Rob met him and keeps him 6ft,(though noting he may measure a fraction under evening) so I say closer to 6ft than 5'11. But I could defiantly see him a flat 182cm. B. (BTW, are you named after a certain boxer)?

sNiPa says on 15/Aug/13

Jensen is 6-6'1" tall. In that pic Jensen is a good 4.5 inches taller than you. That's exactly the relationship with my mother and I. Every photo we take as a family looks like the one above and I'm 6'0.5", whereas my mom is 5'8". Jared is really not shorter than 6'5", his brother is 6'7". You can't really determine height from movies that well, but you can in pictures. Take a look at their family pictures and than you'll see.

stoodnext2 says on 15/Aug/13

Paul normally I would agree with you, except I guarantee Tom Welling could tell you a million stories of female co-stars having to stand on boxes during scenes with him to avoid a very distracting height difference in film. You're on the right track, but I wouldn't put it past production to Place Lindsey on a box whenever her feet weren't shown during scenes with Jensen; just to avoid a height distraction. Same thing with Jared. Anyway just an added opinion here, great observation overall. I still put Jensen at around 6 though

Paul says on 14/Aug/13

In the episode "In My Time Dying" Dean stands next to Tessa the reaper or Lindsey McKeon, they are both bearfoot and in scrubs. Now while standing next to each other she reaches about the bottom of his brow she lists at 5'4 that gives Dean 5'8/5'9 no shoes. Something seems fishy here, I agree with the op.

Balrog says on 6/Aug/13

Lorne. I think 5'11.5'' is better for Ackles. In many episodes he's wearing his 1.5" boots and Padalecki has 0.7-0.8" shoes and still has 4in on him. I think Jared is 6'4.25" and Ackles a weak 6 footer.

Lorne says on 6/Aug/13

Probably closer to 6'1 out of bed... He may very well measure a full 185cm after a full nights sleep. And he is NOT less than a full 182cm evening, there have been a couple of episodes with him and solid 6ft4 Padelecki together, there is a good 4 inches, but not more, so if he isn't 6ft just a fraction shy. And his boots typically give 1.5in range. His thickest give 1.6, MAYBE 1.7in. And remember if you give Aclkes 181cm, then Jared would wave to be 191-192cm, in turn Tom Wellington would be 187cm! Oh and Rosenbaum like 179cm :/???

Akmal says on 27/Jul/13

184 morning, 182-181.5 night

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/Jul/13

184cm out of bed, Rob?

[Editor Rob: He might dip a little shy of 6 feet at night, 184 range out of bed I'm sure he'd measure.]

D Neel says on 12/Jul/13

If Jensen is 6 foot 1, well how tall is the guy that plays his younger brother Supernatural, because he looks really tall. He must be 6 foot 3.

Lo sgozzatore says on 2/Jul/13

Agree, not a full 6'! 5'11.5-5'11.75 is a good guess

cole says on 27/Jun/13

A shade under 6ft, 5'11.75.

Giuseppe says on 25/Jun/13

The photo depicts Amell next to Jensen is taken from a particular angle and you can not see the shoes they are wearing. Let's also remember that we are not certain that Stephen Amell is really 6.1.

Yaspaa says on 21/Jun/13

He always looked a little taller than Rosenbaum on Smallville, looks an inch shorter than Amell. He would need to be extremely vigilant with his lift wearing to always appear such. Could well be 6'0, 6'1 in his shoes. Certainly no taller though.

Marvin Rainwater says on 20/Jun/13

Jensen Ackle's is a 5 feet 11-inch 165 pound man. if he were six foot, your scalp would be level with his eye brow--if he's leaning or not. Guys like him can look six, or six- one when they weigh a trim 150-170 pounds, but the fact is, standing next to Topher proves he's a 5 ft 11 guy, maybe 5 - 11-1/2 out of bed.

stoodnext2 says on 19/Jun/13

I have to add though in the pictures I just posted (particularly the one with him and listed 6'1 Stephen Amell who has the better posture in the picture), for all I know Jensen could be wearing converses, sandals, or slippers; he looked pretty relaxed without the shave and all. I'm assuming now that Stephen Amell may have had slight footwear advantage due to most likely wearing dress shoes since he had a suit on, along with the posture advantage versus Jensen who looked extremely casual. Maybe Jensen had boots but he seemed really relaxed looking and in other pics I've seen not wear boots, like the ones of him playing soccer, ect. Like someone below said, Jensen, he's maybe the tallest 5'11 I've seen so if he in fact 5'11 I'd venture that's barefoot at night and still closer to 6' than flat 5'11.

stoodnext2 says on 19/Jun/13

Very strong 5'11 for him; here he is next to the new Stephen Amell, CW's Green Arrow who also claims 6'1

Click Here

Here's Stephen Amell with Justin Hartley, the CW's old green arrow who is

listed at 6'2.25

Click Here

My guesses are:

Jensen Ackles, Strong 5'11 maybe 6' with good posture added

Stephen Amell, 6'1 as he claims with PERFECT posture

Justin Hartley, 6'2.25 as Rob has him, maybe more with good posture

I'm guessing barefoot at night by the way

Giuseppe says on 14/Jun/13

It can not 'be a solid 6.1. If it were really 6.1, wearing his stvali there would be no difference with all that Jared Padalecky.

Dommy says on 9/Jun/13

I'd say Jensen is a solid 6 feet 1 guy.

penguinboy25 says on 2/Jun/13

Seen a lot of this guy with Supernatural and his boots. I'd say he's a strong 5'11. 181 afternoon to 182 morning.

Jax says on 1/Jun/13

180cm-181cm barefeet

if he was 183cm then he'd be 188-189cm in the massive boots he wears in supernatural...and clearly he is nowhere near that that mark...

Emil says on 21/May/13

Len says on 9/May/13

5'11" guy who likes to claim 6'1".

Seems to be par for the course... everyone in Hollywood claims to be about 2 inches taller than they really are, that's very consistent.

That has to be the tallest 5'11 I've ever seen. He's at least 6 foot even

Lorne says on 1/May/13

I saw an ep of Supernatural the other day, very interesting. Padelecki was in work boots, yet Ackles was wearing thin Adidas type sneakers! Seriously, I can't be sure, but called shoes we're thin( he was posing as a gym teacher) and looked to give no more than 0.75in, definantly less than a full inch. Yet Jared's work boots we're pretty thick. Not quite as big as some of Ackles, which give 1.6-1.7, but they we're giving close to 1.5in. So Jared's footwear was minimum 1.3, most likely 1.4-1.5, while Jensen's we're 0.6-0.7, MAX 0.8. With the footwear discrepancy, they're really was a 5 in difference. But I think it actually points to a 6ft Ackles. Imagine, in boots Jared would be around6ft5.5, possibly a tad more, if he's nearer 194cm barefoot. So called was definantly OVER the 6ft mark, in Adidas style shoe. So at least 184cm in shoes give less than 2cm; so basically, he is at least 182cm barefoot, and a full 6ft very likely. Rob, I wish you could see the episode, it's the one where they investigate they're old high school, and keep having flashbacks, 4th season, I think.

Valeri says on 29/Apr/13

my dad is 6.4.5 during the entire day(weird that he doesnt lose anything beyond a couple mm during the day,uncommon) and I measured at 182.9cm record straight out of bed after a great sleep,this was a minute after getting up. I go down to 182cm flat fast,and then down to 181.5cm fast after that,so basically 181.61cm is 5.11'5 exactly. That makes a difference of 5 inches with my dad,and in all honesty I look in photos and in mirror ,either barefoot both or in similar footwear shoes,both straightened out properly,not leaning and neither having poofy or spiked up hair to add an inch,and the shoulder/eye level/top of the head is pretty much dead on same as with Jared and Jensen throughout the years(minus the time Jensen wears cowboy boots or otherwise massive heeled shoes in quite a few episodes,where they have even filmed the footwear to be seen. When he is wearing normal ones,he looks the same,also next to other co-star who are legit 6 ft or over. Jensen Ackles is definitely 6 ft max,and could be even 5'11.5 flat,like me,but reaching 6 ft straight out of bed. In dress shoes he would be almost 6'1. I think he is 5.11'5 during most of the day,but 6ft is possible. He does have 3.5-4 inches on you in this photo,but as you said,he had a good 0.5 more footwear,which can be discounted for his slight lean in,but even without it he would be 4 inches taller at most,so again no more than 6ft for Jensen. I hope he gave the 6'1 as a guesstimate,otherwise his irrational self-esteem issue about being a close to/flat 6ft is sad.

Linebacker28 says on 20/Apr/13

Not under 5'11", but don't buy anything above 183cm for this cool fellow. Think he's really 182cm after seeing him with Welling and Padalecki several times. They certainly toss that 6'1" claim of his out the window, regardless.

Mark says on 15/Apr/13

neggs says on 7/Apr/13

I've met Jared before there is no way he is 6'5" - I'm 6'3" and he was slightly shorter than me.

There is not a chance in hell that Jared is under 6'3".Rob can confirm that since he saw him in person.

Balrog says on 10/Apr/13

At times he can look 5in shorter than Padalecki. Big chance Padalecki is a little over 6'4'' so Ackles is 181-183 range. Can pull off looking taller because of his big boots.

Lorne! says on 7/Apr/13

I think he's the full 6ft. He towered over Amy Ackers, who is minimum 171-172cm range. He basically looked at least as tall as David boreanez with her. Boreanenez is definite over the 6ft mark, legit 183.5-184. So considering his footwear advantage, 6ft is perfect. Seriously he looks tall beside guest stars ppl!

neggs says on 7/Apr/13

I've met Jared before there is no way he is 6'5" - I'm 6'3" and he was slightly shorter than me.

space balls says on 2/Apr/13

he always looked 1.81-82 cm to more,no less! that 6'1'' claim must have been his shoe height with some thick soles.

Anonymous says on 29/Mar/13

6-0 looks more real life imo.

sherry says on 24/Mar/13

it is surprising he really looks short even when he isn't standing next to jared! Six foot one inch, I'd never have guessed!

Arch Stanton says on 20/Mar/13

Lo sgozzatore says on 3/Feb/13

Rob, i know you've said he looked about 6' but would you be surprised if he actually measured a bit under 6'? He looks 4 inches and more shorter than Jared Padalecki. For sure not 5 inches shorter, so 5'11 would be too low for sure. Is it possible he's just 5'11.5 or 5'11.75?

[Editor Rob: well barefoot he could be a weak 6ft...the guy wears solid 1.5-1.75 inch footwear and can easily look a big 6 footer because of the little extra footwear advantage he has...]

Padalecki though is more likely a bit higher than 6'4" flat.

Alex says on 10/Mar/13

I think this guy has developed a height complex from working near Padalecki all those years. I mean, damn... does he ever get those boots off?

Yaspaa says on 8/Mar/13

Dude, you're kidding, the guy looks nowhere near that. 6'0 is a max.

Dennis D says on 20/Feb/13

the funny thing is , in one episode in supernatural i think it's season 1 or 2, on his passport it says he's 6'4" it can very well be a movie mistake and wasn't supposed to be noticed, i'm 6'1" and i know a lot of 6'4" guys and i think jensen may easely be 6'1" sometimes he even look 6'2" especially in the later seasons

penguinboy25 says on 13/Feb/13

I'd say 182 in the morning.

Giuseppe says on 12/Feb/13

When we speak of the height of Jensen, we must take into account his shoes. Because we know that when it comes to an inch are the shoes to make a difference

Balrog says on 6/Feb/13

5'11.5'' is better for him I think.

Nils says on 5/Feb/13

With similar footwear he looks 10 maybe 11cm max shorter then Jared

If jared is a solid 6'4 then 6ft is alright for Jensen. In my opinion Jared never looked more then 4.25 inches taller in good shots. Also jensen kinda looks down alot and can appear abit shorter.

Lo sgozzatore says on 3/Feb/13

Hew says on 18/Jan/13

Don't think he'd measure 6ft barefoot if he had 0.5" footwear-advantage in the pic with you Rob. Maybe 5'11.5 but nothing over that.

Joey says on 15/Jan/13

without his massive boots he is around 5'11.25 (181cm) ...when he puts them on he is about 6'1 as he any case he is definitely below 6ft in bare feet

Me says on 13/Jan/13

In one episode of Supernatural he is arrested and they are doing the pictures . He is standing by a tape measure, if that is to be believed he is 6 ft 3 in

Balrog says on 9/Jan/13

Stephen, he claims 6'1''.

richkid123 says on 9/Jan/13

His wide shoulders make him look bigger to me, but I think he would be exactly 6' or an eighth to a quarter inch shorter.

Stephen says on 8/Jan/13

183.5night for Jensen is my guess easily 6'0 claim!

Balrog says on 6/Jan/13

Ackles is taller than Collins but not by a full inch, he always wears bigger footwear than Castiel!

SeanSalvatore says on 5/Jan/13

I met him in Vancouver over a year ago. I'm a little over 6'1 and we were basically the same height

Dan-183 says on 4/Jan/13

Found a photo that shows that Jensen is about the same height as his costar Misha Collins who is 5'11"

Click Here

[Editor Rob: ackles is pretty much a bit taller than misha in person, although misha claims 6ft himself.


thc-182 says on 2/Jan/13

he is 184 cm there(with the advantage), maybe 185, i think 183 is accurate, maybe 183.5

Zack says on 27/Dec/12

I consider myself a weak 6' in thick shoes, and that's exactly how I look next to 5'8 - 5'9 guys in photos.

So yeah, I actually think he might be under 6', or 6 out of bed.

Tom says on 26/Dec/12

I have met the guy myself, and im 6'1, id say he is 6'1. no doubt.

tom says on 25/Dec/12

this difficult to judge imo,perhaps a weak 6-0 to me.

Original says on 22/Dec/12

5'11.25 Ackles and 6'4.25" Padalecki.

Joey says on 16/Dec/12

wears bigger boots than i originally thought...6'1 range yes but only in boots.. in barefeet 5'11..dunno how guys like him or pitt etc manage to wear boots/lifts like they do ,i hate thick soled boots...i always wear shoes like Puma Future or sth

Arechi says on 11/Dec/12

Jensen ackles always uses a type of boots (work boots/logger boots brand: chippewa/carolina/red wing) with a heel of about 6-7 cm.

nikita says on 11/Dec/12

Come on!!! What's the difference?! He's gorgeous, fantastic and sexy anyway!

balrog says on 3/Dec/12

The guy is clearly more 5'11'' that 6'0'' I mean even with bigger shoes Misha Collins is almost same height that him and DJ Qualls had him easily by an inch not to mention that both Padalecki and Welling towers him.

FACE says on 30/Nov/12

6'0 183 cm morning

5'11.25 181 cm night

Arch Stanton says on 29/Nov/12

[Editor Rob: Jared is probably at night still 6ft 4 himself.

If that's the case maybe an upgrade to 6'4.5" for Padalecki?

Yaspaa says on 3/Nov/12

Those are some big-assed heels.

LG69 says on 25/Oct/12

I don't think he's quite 6'0. Considering his shoes were 1/2 inch thicker...i'd say he's no more closer to 5'11"...maybe 5'11.5" at most.

Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 20/Oct/12

No way 6'1, there's too much difference between this guy and Jared Padalecki, Rob is right, he's 6' more.

Hellere says on 1/Oct/12

There is an interview where jenson is stood next to a 6 foot Michael rosenbaum and he is slightly looking down at him, meaning jenson must be at least 6 foot but most probably 6"1.

Tyler says on 28/Sep/12

Hey Rob, what are your thoughts on this photo? Click Here

[Editor Rob: he looks in the 183-4cm range, but he does wear 1.5 inch boots a fair bit.

you can also see in photos like that barrel distortion, so if a person was standing in the middle and you have 2 on either side near the edge of the photo they can appear a bit smaller than they are and the middle person can appear a little taller.]

ANDREA[ITA] says on 30/Jul/12

Rob, i saw an interview of Jared where he says that Jensen is 6'1 and that he's 6'4! How cant he notice he's too much taller? In all the pics the 4 inches difference is the minimum difference between them!

[Editor Rob: Jared is probably at night still 6ft 4 himself.

little chance Jensen is 6ft 1 unless it's morning height.]

Tyler says on 27/Jul/12

Solid 6'0". Maybe 6'0.5".

Triplescrew says on 26/Jul/12

Ackles is a decent 6'1" in his boots, 6'0"-ish in normal shoes, and probably hovers around a strong 5'11" barefoot.

That's how I feel after watching 7 seasons of Supernatural, assuming Padalecki is 6'4" which I do not doubt.

Hob said on 13/Jun/12
in Supernatural recently jared wore bigger footwear than season 1-3 more often in sneakers and look 3" top over jensen, so recently i had notice jared look closer to 4.5" taller than jensen ackles. he could be 5'11.5 than 6'0. i think he was 6'1 in shoe.
Patrick said on 7/Jun/12
He definitely is 6 foot-tall. Whteher it is on this picture or in SV or Supernatural. Beside a 6'4 Jared, he would look real short otherwise, what he doesn't.

I think Jensen Ackles can sing really good acting. He also looks really sexy (well without the beard he looks much better) good that he wears in supernatural no. I mean what is the man wants more !!!

In the CW premiere video, Jensen only looked to be about 3 inches shorter then Jared, although Jared was very relaxed though. Even so, theres definitely a 3-4 inch difference between them. If Jared is 6'3 like he claims, that puts Jensen at 5'11 -6 foot and possibly 6'1 like he claims when he is wearing boots. Tom barely looks 2 inches taller then Jensen but then again, it looks like Jensen and jared might possibly have a footware advantage. Either way my estimations for the 3 are

Jensen 5'11 - 6 foot

Tom 6'2 - 6'2.25

Jared 6'3 - 6'3.5
Axxo said on 8/Oct/07
It's so obvious .... that he is 6'. I don't know why people think he is 5'10 does it make you happier or something but he must be at least 6' he stands pretty close next to Jim Beaver and Jeffery Dean Morgan
Josh said on 8/Oct/07
Jo is right its so obvious hes in the 5'10 5'11 range .
JO said on 2/Oct/07
Erica your wrong!, i have screencaps of the episode, she was wearing boots. Maybe a 1.5 inch heel if that. Not to mention Jensen wears big boots with a 1.5 inch heel. so that cancels out, not like jensen was bare footed in the episode. He is not more than 5`10.5, in boots 6 feet even.
Erica said on 1/Oct/07
Remember Tricia Helfer being in the "Roadkill" eppy? Well, she's 5'10. She wore (approx. 2 inch) heels in this episode. Heels put her at about the same height as Jensen. So, obviously Jensen is about 6'-6'1" tall. Besides I think he knows how tall he is and he's said 6'1. & not to mention, Tricia said in an interview it was refreshing to work with taller men 'cause she's so tall they're usually looking up at her so she got to look up for a change.

[Editor Rob: that Tricia is one actress I'd really want to meet properly.]
Kaitlin said on 23/Sep/07
jeez, am I the only person who would LIKE it if he was shorter than six feet? sheesh... I googled it hoping he was 5'10" 'cause that would be HOT (a lot shorter would be great too) But oh well...
6 feet is tall in my book and shorter than that is not a bad thing sillies

He does look about 6'0''
AAAA said on 9/Sep/07
I trust Rob that he is a 182 cm guy. At least I think Robsaid he looked tat when he met him. He never gave me a 6'1 appearence, though he could pull of 6' ft illusion with the right footwear. Maybe he is almost 6'1 in some speial shoes or boots.
On a side note, I don't get people claiming to be a certain height and then not doing anything to give that illusion. Saying your 6'1 doesn't make people think you are 6'1. At least take a page out of Pitts book and get some chuncky heels, some concealed lifts, and always wear high Tops so you can conceal some more lifts

[Editor Rob: 182cm is the lowest I'd go. I'd need a nearer ideal photo, unfortunately I didn't get an ideal pic of myself with this guy...

Purely for the notion of this site I don't like it when a celebrity doesn't stand properly, same goes for myself.]

He looks dead on 5-11 max, no more.
Anonymousxyz said on 8/Sep/07
Ackles is 5-11, doesnt look like a 6 foot tall guy at all and 6'1" is out of question. There was an episode called "In my time of dying" or something like that where he walks barefooted in the hospital and didnt looked like 6 feet tall. Jared looks sometimes 6-3 and sometimes 6-4 on Supernatural but I can buy the 6-4 for Jared and 5-11 for Ackles.

I'm Sorry, I don't mean to disagree with you MD, but in that picture he looks at least five, maybe six inches shorter than Jared. Which is usually the case in almost all of their straight on shots, so it's not just the angle or how they're standing in this picture.

He's 6' in the photo where it says he is 6'3 he is obviously wearing boots. I think Jared is more like 6'4.5.

It's amazing how people use other ppl's height to compare and conclude one person's height. It's completely can you be so sure the of the height you're comparing to, and then use that as the standard measuring tool? No one ever REALLY's the guesstimation game all the time
Franco said on 3/Jul/07
been couple of years now ive been looking at him and stated various heights for him but now i think i came to my final conclusion....

Jensen is 5'11.5 no more no less. period.
Amy said on 2/Jul/07
Jensen is 6'1 Jared Padalecki is 6'4 on the show Supernatural they say Sam (Jared) is 6'5 and that Dean (Jensen) is 6'4 this is mainly because Dean is older than Sam but Jared is a couple of inches taller than Jensen although Jensen is quite tall 6'1 also i have met Jensen in person and i am 6'0 and he was about an inch taller than me at the least he is incredibly nice and even sexier in person :)
sarah said on 1/Jul/07
he does look a little short compared to jared during supernatural or tom welling from smallville but i don't think his height is what the audience cares about he'd still be hot if he was 5'o.1 in!

compare to garcia anf fox he looks closer to 6'0.5 in

[Editor Rob: I remeasured my trainers at 1 inch flat, his shoes looked like no less 1.2. You could say his range is 182-4, with 183 being most likely, although these still are always estimates.]

Then again, (I'm not sure If anybody noticed this because they were to busy looking at another blooper) but Terry O Quinn's height is listed in a Lost episode as 5ft 10, even though he is atleast 6ft minimum. Same case here with Jensen Ackles maybe....

Bibi-NL said on 22/Jun/07
Well, it's a Hollywood mugshot, so who knows how accurate it is. But again, wouldn't they want to make him look taller, or at least his actual height, and not several inches shorter? 2 or 3 inches isn't exactly a small difference...

Also, the shot seems to be exactly at face level, and not higher or lower. So it's not an illusion created by camera position.

So, Dean Winchester is either 6'1" but barefoot and slouching, or he's really just about 5'11".
Viper said on 20/Jun/07
Right, If hes wearing shoes then hes 5-10 in the mugshot. Either way hes not over 5-11 there If thats a true, legit mugshot photo.
Bibi-NL said on 20/Jun/07
Also, in the mugshot he's probably wearing shoes too, so that's minus another inch... You'd think that when making these props (the height chart) they'd want to make the actor look taller, not shorter.... I don't think he's 5'9", but 5'10" is possible. Let's give him another inch for slouching, that's 5'11". There's no way he's 6'1", and now I'm even beginning to doubt the 6' listed here.
Viper said on 19/Jun/07
Actually that mugshot shows that hes more 5-10, because his hair is sticking up to reach the 72 inch mark.
Viper said on 19/Jun/07
Paledelki is closer to 6-3 than 6-5. I still give Jensen no more than 5-11 at best.
Bibi-NL said on 19/Jun/07
Here's a screenshot with his mugshot (well, Dean Winchester's) and stats: Click Here

According to his stats he's 6'1, yet the top of his head minus the hair barely reaches 70", maybe 71" which is 5'11". Hmmmm...

Jensen is at least 6'1". I saw him in person signing autographs after "A Few Good Men" and he's an inch or two taller than my husband who is just barely 6'0". Padalecki is easily 6'5".

Jensen was a liyyle under 6'3, and Jared was a slouching 6'5.5 and would have looked over 6'6 if he stood up straight. Jensen had great posture. Jared had awful posture

If you watch the Supernatural episode 'Folsom Prison Blues,' they have mugshots taken. Jensen Ackles comes in at 6ft 3, and Jared at 6ft 5. Could be wearing big shoes, so kind of dispells the theory of Jensen being 5ft 10.

Jare Padelecki said it himself that he was only 6'3 and jensen is only like 2-3 inches shorter than him. so yeah about 6'0-6'1. but he's still cute!
pgv said on 31/May/07
That's a two inch difference. Freeze it at the 1:27-1:28 mark. Also, Jon Heder is in the clip at the :20 mark, notice the small difference in height between him and Kimmel. Heder is the 6'1-6'2" range. I think Kimmel and Ackles are 6'0.5-6'1" range.

Rob is right about the im db. Jimmy Kimmel's height is now listed at 6'1" over there.

Ok, above we have Matt Damon on Jimmy Kimmel show. There is only about an inch if that between them. And Matt is 5`10 max. Jensen is no taller than 5`11.
Betty said on 30/May/07
internet movie data base im db, list kimmell at 5`10. Thras usually issue by agencys. I tried to change the height of a celeb and they have so many regulations they just dont let anybody change the height.

[Editor Rob: no, no, no. Half the heights come from people who actually also visit this site, they like to height fight over listings. I'm sure there's ongoing height battles over there...Kimmell gives his height as 6ft 1, that's the official 'toe the line' height.]

You're absolutely right. He is the same height as Jimmy Kimmel.

Except Jimmy Kimmel isn't 5'10.

JK is slightly shorter than 6'2" Matthew Fox.

He was on jimmy kimmell show who is 5`10, he was the same height as him. Rosie perez was also on the show that day. H is no taller than 5`11. more like 5`10.5 with boots he is 6 feet.
pgv said on 23/May/07
Hey Rob,

I'll email you.

[Editor Rob: please do pgv. If you're from US I do remember talking to one lady (who said she was with a friend, her name started with M) on friday and remember another american in a queue for a photoshoot, I think...but don't quote me, I thought a girl from Ireland was from Canada, and a girl from Germany the US, so maybe I'm not as good as I thought with accents!]
pgv said on 22/May/07
Nah, pgv are initials for something else. I'm a girl.

with all those women there weren't a huge amount of guys floating about

Tell me about it! I meet a grand total of three guys, one of whom was helping Wayne with the con.

[Editor Rob: whit, I thought you were a guy. Sorry :), are you English/american/european, I've no idea who you could have been...I must have spoken to folk from about 10 different countries, I heard spanish,german,dutch,chinese,norwegian,american,irish and australian accents. I am shocked how far people came for that event.]
pgv said on 22/May/07
I didn't see the incident but I made friends with some stewards so I heard an earful.*g* Now, that I'm thinking about it, I did meet a guy named Rob. Hmmmm..*evil grin*

[Editor Rob: wasn't me, honest ;) well, maybe, I don't know, with all those women there weren't a huge amount of guys floating about...pgv does that stand for Paul something?]
pgv said on 19/May/07
Rob, I have to disagree about Jensen's height. I was at the Asylum con too and that is not a mere 5'11.5. If that is the case, I would be 2 inches shorter. I truly believe he's in the 6'0.5-6'1 range. Did you take pictures with any of the guys?

[Editor Rob: ah, you were there cool. I seen a lot of pics of him with others and honestly, no less than 182 I said but never looked over six foot, he had on solid shoe remember. Yes I got photos with jensen justin and alan and allison mack/alona, those two guys looked a good couple inches taller than justin in that ceremony. Lutz was a pretty funny guy.. Did you see that incident aswell?]
xD said on 17/May/07
Holy crap..I'd hate to be one of the cast members of Supernatural...
Editor Rob said on 14/May/07
You are fully entitled to beliefs, I've seen 30 pics of him beside people I know, as I say i wouldn't put him under 182cm...although that figure could mind you be bang on, although it depends how much people think leans can lose. The ones where he looks 5ft 10.5-11 are usually those where his posture is a little poorer or he's leaning a bit. By and large 5ft 11.5-6ft would be a reasonable range to argue, rather than say 180cm or 184cm.

Oh, something bizarre. On saturday he was doing a photoshoot and was like going out of the room afterwards, heading to lobby/lift. Then this fanghirl literally jumped on him, wrapping arms/legs on jensen trying to kiss the poor guy. Man, the look on Jensen's face as he tried to escape this crazy bitch was something, they rightly kicked her out, no wonder certain celebs stay away from cons, fanghirls can get crazy...although saying that, the parties at that event when there was like 85% girls in attendance, man I ain't complaining :)

Fair play to him though, I was expecting him to bail the event and not turn up sunday, but he soldiered on and actually joked about it a little. Although the chances of him doing another event in uk I'd say were much slimmer...
Viper said on 13/May/07
Well, I cant see Ackles anything over 5-11 either.
Editor Rob said on 13/May/07
He isn't 5ft 10.5...but doesn't look 6ft 0.5 or that 6ft 1 claim.

He gave an impression to me of being near 6 foot. I wouldn't put him under 182cm. I saw him a lot over the weekend, he had though a little advantage in footwear, like 1/6th inch. I had like 1.05 trainers this weekend, he had what looked near 1.25.

Oh and I also saw Justin Hartley. On Saturday he had had on 0.6 trainers, the next day he had on 1.2ish shoes.
And that guy ain't no 6ft 1, him and alan richston I saw together and he may have had slight edge, jh that is. Hard to be precise with hair do's. Richston is a big guy also, both in build and posture, Hartley is a big guy, ok when he was saying Welling is 6ft 4 and a whisker taller than him, his idea or implied claim of being 6ft 3.5 might be in a shoe. I seen him quite a lot.

By definition though...Welling is a big guy, what he says on the tin isn't that hard of a concept to fathom...there's no way he's 6ft 1. Hartley would have to be in and around that mark, jensen would be like 179cm. Granted Ackles can look nearer to that 179cm......but that's with a lean!!!
Anonymous said on 13/May/07
I kind of think that he is 6-1 with shoes on, he does look 2 - 3 inches shorter then the supposed 6-2.5 Tom Welling so I'll say 6-1 with shoes, 6-0 - 6-0.5 without. He is bigger then he appears.
anonymous said on 11/May/07
I watched an interview where he said he was 6'1"
Viper said on 11/May/07
You cant go by builds always. And for his build it gives me a 5-10 impression actually, though I think hes more 5-11.
Anonymous said on 10/May/07
I'd probably say 6'0 to 6'1 is correct. I am a similar build to him and He does look taller then me, even when standing next to Jarred. I'm about 5'10-11ish btw, just under 6 foot or bit over depending on foot ware.
Elisabeth said on 9/May/07
The guy is cute and all.But,next to the other guy on Supernatural,he look's kind of short.No affense Jensen.
schnitzelferk said on 1/May/07
LOL, did anyone see the new supernatural where theyre put on them height boards?

They made jared 6'6 1/2" and ackles 6'3"

they bumped there heights up a good 2.5" through both of them at least by the looks of it haha.

[Editor Rob: the boards were the correct height, the camera wasn't at the top of their heads]
rochelle said on 30/Apr/07
i would say that jensen is that tall, but that must mean that jared is a lot taller which is easy to tell.
i am not a tall person myself so i would definately say that jensen is 6'0" if not taller.
samiami said on 28/Apr/07
ok guys final answer. i had the chance to meet jensen about a month ago. i am 5'10 and he was way taller than me at least 3 inches. he is deffinately not 5'1o or 5'11. hes about the same hieght as my friend whos 6'1.
AA said on 16/Apr/07
Compared to 6'4" Padalecki, does look 6'0"-6'0.5" without shoes. I'd say 6'0".
Metre said on 7/Apr/07
If you watch early season 4 Smallville when he is in the change room, he is the same height as the lockers which are standard 72" so he's 6ft with sneakers.
Franco said on 16/Mar/07
This guy got some of the worst legs ever, just watch any of the Supernatural episodes, his inner legs are curved bad.

regardless i think he is definetely 6ft tall, imho he is a weak 1.83cm though.
of course he looks taller in person, he isn't barefoot so he is above 1.83cm anyways with shoes, 1.85cm prolly with shoes.

he is 6' without shoes, 6.1 with shoes.
Metre said on 13/Mar/07
I'd say he was 5'11 tops if you look at his interview with Megan Mullaly who is 5'4 (Click Here) and Michelle Williams who was his costar in Dawsons Creek who is 5'4.
Lily said on 5/Mar/07
Oh, I didn't mean Michael Rosenbaum! I was talking about another Michael (from Dark Angel). :) But glad to know someone agrees about the height!
schnitzelferk said on 4/Mar/07
Click Here

ackles is taller than a pretty much 6'0" michael, ackles is 6ft, 6ft 1/2" tops.

Thing is he slouches, and he is a pretty broad guy, if you watch supernatural or whatever he has big shoulders and theyre spread far out, his armspan is probably 6'6" or something lol.
This can lead to him looking small.
Lily said on 28/Feb/07
Jensen looks short because he keeps getting casted next to taller actors (Jared Padalecki, Tom Welling, Michael Weatherly). In contrast, when he was on DOOL and Dawson's Creek he looked his height--which is ABOVE 5'10''. I don't know why people continue to speculate when fans who have met him personally, including myself, state that he is not a short man. Granted, he's definitely not 6'2'', but he IS a solid 6'-6'1''. Tricia Hefer who is 5'10'' is guest starring in an episode of Supernatural and he's taller than she is.
Viper said on 22/Feb/07
Hes 5-10 1/2.
Chris said on 22/Feb/07
he could be 5'10/5'11 - why not? Some guys can look tall at this height. I am 5'11 and and sometimes considered's gotta do with the build which can make you look taller.
G-unit said on 22/Feb/07
He was a model back in the days, so I guess he must be at least 6'. In supernatural he looks 5'10 next to his brother, but that's because he's so tall
schnitzelferk said on 16/Feb/07
"It's funny when did the above average 6 foot guy get called short?"

When did only 1 inch less 5'11" get considered short?

I think a 6'4-5" guy has the right to call even 6'2" men short-as a joke, because compared to them, 6'2" is short.

The show likes to add little bits of humour to them.
From watching countless episodes of supernatural, ackles can look 5'9", and can look 6'2" sometimes 6'3" in one episode where hes ill-slouching, and still manages to only be a few inches off jared.

Jared himself can look quite short too, he can sometimes be quite a lot of inches off standard looking 6'6" doorframes.
But i recently heard you americans have 6'8" doorframes which might explain it.

The guy is no shorter than 6ft personally.
ok said on 15/Feb/07
i think your all right, i mean different shoes can add a good difference between a couple of centremeters. boots, runners whatever its all the same. he is probably just under 6 or smack bang on it. look at him when he is standing next to jared, there has got to be about 3 to 4 to 5 inches difference.
oh and also check out the length of his arm from his shoulder to his elbow. thats always a good indication of how tall some one is - the length of micha barton's arm shoulder to elbow is massive and when i met her in LA she was huge. im a tall guy and we were practically eye to eye.
Anonymous said on 14/Feb/07
I remember in one episode this season where Jared calls Jensen's character, "Bossy, and short." It's funny when did the above average 6 foot guy get called short? I'm 5'9", so what does that make me? lol I know I would get towered over a guy like Jared, because he's 6'4' or 6'5" Anyway, I believe he is about 5'11"- 6ft, because he sometimes seems it. The reason why he can look shorter is, because of Jared and he does have broad shoulders. His build can make him look shorter.
sianna said on 26/Jan/07
yeh i think it was the ktla interview
Lillian said on 21/Jan/07
I met Jensen Ackles when he was on Dawson's Creek, and trust me, he's taller than he looks. I was actually kind of amazed. I'm 5'11'' with heels and he was most definately a good several inches taller than me. It may be the fact that he has very broad shoulders that makes him seem stocky. He once said in an interview that when he watches himself on screen with Jared, he looks like he's only 5'9''.
sianna said on 18/Jan/07
stop repeating the same thing over and over viper, we understand that you believe he is no more than 5'11 or whatever, but most of us know that he is taller. People who have met him have only continued to say that he is 6' or over, so why continue to argue? I thought for a while that he may be only 5'11, but on the first episode of the second season of Supernatural, Jensen is barefoot the whole time, whereas Jared is in shoes the whole time and if he is 6'4 he would be 6'5 in shoes, heres the pic (hopefully it works!)Click Here you can see that Jensen would come up to his eyes. I was also watching this small interview where a model Yoanna House was talking to Jensen at a Launch Party for like the CW network. Yoanna is 5'11 and was still an inch shorter than Jensen, even though she was in heels.
Viper said on 16/Jan/07
Hes no taller than 5-11.
sianna said on 15/Jan/07
yeh i have to agree with schnitzelfrek....just because a shoe may look bulky doesnt mean that it'll give you a large height advantage....example, a 3 inch heeled shoe will NOT make you three inches taller, it'll make you 2 inches taller. so when people go on here & say how he wears like runners that'll give him 3 inches extra or wateva, it isnt true! there is NO WAY that Jensen is shorter than 5'11, if he was he's body would be like proportioned differently and you would be able to tell. x0x thanks!
Aguatin said on 5/Jan/07
sorry for my bad english, Im from Argentina. I have to say that jensen seems 6 or 6`1, no less. Jared its 1,93. So images show that 8 cm of diference. See the diference between JAred and other actors in "house of wax". You will see that hes taller than averyone. So its true hes like 1,93..because chad is 1,83 (And no one can say hes less than 1,83..just see he next to Hilarie Burton)
most girls use 4 or 5 cm shoes so that its another thing to think about.

I believe the height that they say. Perhaps some is that height with shoes on. But no less. Just see in YouTube the video about supernatural behind the scenes. Jensen is clear 1,85..1 cm more or doesnt matter..
schnitzelferk said on 26/Dec/06
yes the HEEL of the shoe outside can look bulky, but if you feel inside the shoe-its just for look, if you (painful i know but i have done this) get trainers, cut them down, the ACTUAL sole and everything is only 1/4-1/2", 3/4"-1" max on smart shoes.

Ive got a guy who can just skim a doorframes top in smart shoes, barefeet he escapes it by 1/2" inch, i measured.

The outside of the sole looks a crapload bigger than the actual size.

can you imagine 2" of hard material like that underneath your feet?
Itd hardly bend, you wouldnt be able to freaking move, theyd be like platforms.

Measure yourself fiarly when in trainers, i barely gain 1/4" in new trainers.

Ackles id say is a fair 5'11.5", no shorter.
Autumn said on 14/Oct/06
My friend met Jensen. She is 5'10" in heels, which she was wearing at the time. He had running shoes on and was a minimum of 4 inches taller than her. Another friend met Jared. That friend is 6'1. The friend that met Jared didn't say what shoes Jared was wearing, just that he felt short beside him. jared was 4-5 inches taller. So I believe the reports that Jensen is 6'1" and Jared os 6'5", but then, I'm not jealous of them.
Viper652 said on 25/Sep/06
Yes James, most actors are 1-2 inches shorter then their listed heights, as are most athletes. Anybody who reads this site shouldnt be shocked anymore. James I agree on all your heights that Jared is 6-2 1/2-6-3. Welling in the 6-1 range and Jenson 5-10 1/2. Thats what it certaintly looks like to me at least.
Schnitzerlferk said on 24/Sep/06
James, you wear some bigass shoes man, my height increases by 1/4" in trainers, and 1/2" in smart shoes, you must be talking about some heavy gear boots.
Jared has grown since acting remember, hes quite young.
In cheaper by the dozen he is AT LEAST 2 inches taller than tom welling, and tom being 6'3" in shoes james, that makes jared quite tall.
Roadrunner said on 24/Sep/06

Jensen was taller then Rosenbaum, yet both claim to be 6'.

My guess is Ackles is barely 6', and Rosenbaum 5'11".

Its not true he doesnt look an ich taller than chad they look about the same he looks like 1cm taller than Chad by that chad is like 180cm and Ankles 181cm.

Hes not 5-9. Really does look 5-10 1/2 - 5-11. I think Jared looks 6-3 Max next to him.

I bet he is like 5'9! Scott Paterson(Luke) on Gilmore Girls is 6'! He looked short next to 6'4 Jared Padelecki but not as short as Jensen!

yer but if he WAS to wear elevator shoes thye would make him Jared's height...
SH said on 7/Jul/06
In regards to people who think it is impossible to inflate their height by 3'' - 4''. I have to back Viper up. I am 6'1'' and I get short people coming up to me on ocassion saying "wow you are so tall, what are you 6'3'' or 6'4''" and that is in person. Taking this into account, it is easy for someone to do the say they are taller than they are, given a bit of good camera work. In addition, I meet people all the time who are like 5'10'' max and they claim to be 6' and that is in person not on camera.

I do however believe Jensen looks between 5'11.5'' to 6'0.5''
sianna said on 7/Jul/06
yer i have to agree with viper u gotta look through the pages...i searched through n i think its the 2006 appearance one with chad
