How tall is Jensen Ackles ?

Jensen Ackles's height is 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. He said in the Boston Herald, 2005: "[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 the Asylum Supernatural convention in 2007, England. He had a good 0.5 inch thicker boots than my sneaker in this pic.

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

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 ?
Jake says on 17/Apr/14
this is a pretty fair listing. Jared always seems to have 4-5 inches on him and he's probably 6'4-6'5
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
183/184cm
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
@Linda
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
Lorne says on 12/Dec/13
Lol Rampage, I meant 5'11! Beaver is 5'11 max, 5'10.5 is likely. Come on, you should have known that was a typo man :) Ackles is likely 5'11.5-5'11.75, so he'd be a fraction under 5'12!!!
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 8/Dec/13
1.84 m upon waking perhaps.
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 about...like 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
Lorne says on 5/Dec/13
Assuming him and Stephen Amell have equal footwear, he really does look 6ft with him, in which case, not not than 5ft11.5. Also, Beaver is likely a fraction under 5'12, and in boots ge's a bit taller than Jennsen barefoot, maybe 1.5-2cm, he's define fly a weak 6ft, for sure. Lo Sg, Balrog, look at Alexis Denisof's pic and comment!!!
Lorne says on 26/Nov/13
I agree:) It would be interesting to see Jared and Alexander S. together, both very solid 6'4, though I think Alex would very well edge him out, but we're talkin mm here! Yeah, Jensen could be 5ft11.5, but I really can't see him less, he looks too tall, and Rob wouldn't give him 6ft.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 26/Nov/13
I agree 'Lo sgozzatore', 5ft 11.5in is the very minimum Ackles can be. 6ft is a fiar enough listing but 5ft 11.75in could be spot on.
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.
Lorne says on 26/Nov/13
And btw, in multiple episodes, Jensen is barefoot, Sam Beaver is in boots, and Beaver is taller, but, not much taller(and of course beaver is over 6ft in his own massive boots). Point is, he struggles with the 6ft mark, but he's gotta be damn close. Also see him with DJ Qualls, with footwear advantage(cowboys vs the FBI dress shoes) and he isn't much shorter. What's funny is to me, the difference between Cranston and Paul can look nearly as much between these two, though of course Aaron doesn't wear big boots, and really doesn't have good posture.
Lorne says on 26/Nov/13
Well they're is certainly not less than 4 inches, you could argue 4.5, but I don't think it's quite that much. And like you say, Jared could be 6ft4.25, and not less than 6'4. So 4in under 6'4.25 make him 6ft0.25. 4.5 under 6'4 makes him 5'11.5. We know he's not over 6ft, so 5'11.5-6', just as you said! But I see a solid 4 inches, so 5ft11.75 for Jensen, 6'4 for Jared is my guess, but if Jared is closer to 194, then to me, Ackles looks 6ft with him.
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
Lorne says on 23/Nov/13
The only time he looks 5 inches shorter are the rare occasions he has footwear disadvantage. Like in the episode in the high school, Jensen has thin trainers, Jared a type of work boot, he looks 5 inches under. But as you said, a lot of times looks just 3-3.5in under. But the fact is, Jensen looks a legit 184cm in his boots, and barefoot, they're is a good 4 inches between them, but not no 5 inches. 4.5in is the max between then. Ackles can't be less than 5'11.5, or more then 6ft. 182-183 is exactly his range, a "weak" 6 footer, similar to a Christian Bale.
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!
Lorne says on 5/Nov/13
Glad some people agree with me!(posters I like too :)). It's as Balrig said, 5ft11.5-6ft is his range, I'd prob list him 5ft11.75, but Rob met him and sticks with 6ft, it's close enough.
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

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...

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

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

space balls says on 2/Apr/13
he always looked 1.81-82 cm to me.no 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.

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 claims...in 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
Jake: 182.9 cm -- 183.5 cm says on 30/Dec/12
From what I've seen, he's somewhere in the 5ft 11.75- 6ft 0.25 zone, probably the former is more likely.
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.
Click Here
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 6'0...no 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.]
marla singer says on 28/Sep/12
He's so hot. 5'11.5"
mike says on 25/Sep/12
yes i agree with chameleon
Chameleon says on 15/Sep/12
Yes he is 6'1 in heeled boots. 180-ish without it.
firstdance2000 says on 14/Sep/12
He's 6'1"...I'm 6'0" and stood beside him with my daughter at a Supernatural convention.
ANDREA[ITA] says on 11/Sep/12
Anything over 6' for this guy is too much! He struggles to look even 6' with big guys like Tom Welling and Jared Padalecki!
Zach says on 29/Aug/12
@Zero, agree with your comment there.
zero says on 28/Aug/12
This guy is probably a strong 5'11 guy and wears thicked heeled boots.
Jake: 1.82 m--1.83 m--1.84 m says on 24/Aug/12
Yeah he's easily 6ft.
Zach says on 22/Aug/12
I did post some pics of this guys dodgy footwear but seems to have gotten deleted.
Reality says on 17/Aug/12
I think he's 6'0.5,6'1 ain't impossible as well.
tom says on 9/Aug/12
Id say 6.0 for sure,maybe 6,1" due to the way he is bending sideways.
ray 6\' 158 lbs says on 7/Aug/12
i think jensen is 182 cm at mourning and 179.5 cm at night he is 165 lbs in supnat season 1 and in bloody valentine 3 d,and after he is 34 alredy and hes getting fatter he is 185 now,and i read on the net he can bench press 210 lbs and padalceki can 325 lbs.
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.
uk183cm says on 15/Jun/12
Nothing over 6ft for Jensen, probably 182cm
Hob says 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 says 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.
Reg says on 31/Jan/12
@Rob What happened to all the comments. It was a large page i remember last i visited.
[Editor Rob: a portion of recent comments got wiped]
nice guy says on 29/Jan/12
he's 180cm ( 5'11 ) without his massive boots ...wearing them as he does in supernatural he's 6ft area 183cm /184cm...his 6'1 claim is bull
Denise says on 28/Jan/12
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 !!!
